In Destroy All Monsters, the SoshingekiGoji's name comes from the film's Japanese title, specifically sōshingeki (総進撃?), meaning attack of the marching [monsters], and Goji, which comes from Godzilla's Japanese name, Gojira (ゴジラ?).
In All Monsters Attack, the AllKaijuGoji's name comes from the film's Japanese title, specifically ōru kaijū (オール怪獣?), meaning all kaiju, and Goji, which comes from Godzilla's Japanese name, Gojira (ゴジラ?).
One of the more popular Godzilla designs, the SoshingekiGoji suit featured a bell-shape body with a pronounced breast bone, a long neck and a head somewhat similar to the DaisensoGoji, with defined brows and more menacing eyes than the previous DaisensoGoji and MusukoGoji suits.
The eyes on this suit did not move, though the eyelids flutter briefly in the scene when King Ghidorah flies overhead at Mt. Fuji in Destroy All Monsters. This was the most used suit in the Showa Godzilla series, and this was very evident in the suit's final appearance, Godzilla vs. Gigan, for in one scene where Godzilla is on top of Gigan and punching him, one can actually see pieces of the suit flying off, as well as visible rips in the arms.
- The SoshingekiGoji is the most used Godzilla suit of all, being used in 4 films.
- This suit is also popular for being the last suit Haruo Nakajima would portray Godzilla in.
- On the cover of the Godzilla vs Hedorah soundtrack the suit is noticeably cross eyed.
- To give this suit a more reptilian/scaly appearance, the suit designers mixed saw dust into the liquid latex coating that they applied to the face.
