The MogeGoji (モゲゴジ?) is the Godzilla suit design used in the 1994 and 1995 Godzilla films, Godzilla vs. SpaceGodzilla and Godzilla vs. Destoroyah.


In Godzilla vs. SpaceGodzilla, the MogeGoji's name comes from another kaiju's name, M.O.G.U.E.R.A. (モゲラ,   Mogera?), and Goji, which comes from Godzilla's Japanese name, Gojira (ゴジラ?).

In Godzilla vs. Destoroyah, the DesuGoji's name comes from another kaiju's name, Destoroyah (デストロイア,   Desutoroia?), and Goji, which comes from Godzilla's Japanese name, Gojira (ゴジラ?).


The MogeGoji suit features a stocky, triangular build, broad shoulders and heavy legs, the neck of the MogeGoji was wide at the shoulders and featured much less pronounced ribbing. The face of this suit is basically the same as the BatoGoji and RadoGoji suits. However, the eyes of the MogeGoji suit appeared bigger than those of the previous suits, while the white areas of the eyes become more pronounced, thus giving this suit a slightly less menacing expression than its predecessors. The MogeGoji suit was the first suit to be equipped with a mechanical device to move the head in different directions, instead of just up and down. This was also the first suit to employ a ventilation system to cool the suit down to help the actor within.

The 1994 MogeGoji suit was employed again for Godzilla vs. Destoroyah. To create the critical mass appearance of Godzilla for this movie, sections of the costume were removed and approximately 200 tiny red, orange and yellow light bulbs were inserted. These areas were then covered with semi-transparent vinyl plates. The suit was also fitted with a mechanism that allowed steam to pour from various parts of Godzilla's body. The eyes were also modified to glow electronically. When enhanced with computer graphics, these changes to the 1994 MogeGoji suit made the image of Godzilla reaching critical mass appear very convincing.

Incidentally, Godzilla actor, Kenpachiro Satsuma, reported that the steam generated from the costume was pure carbon monoxide and that it caused him to faint several times during filming. The suit was used to portray the adult Godzilla Junior after he is revived at the end of the film, but had the light bulbs turned off. This suit is also called the DesuGoji (デスゴジ?).
