Mechagodzilla (RPO) - Infobox

Mechagodzilla, also referred to as Kiryu, is a mecha vehicle option for players in the OASIS. The vehicle is based on the kaiju of the same name from the Godzilla film franchise.

Nolan Sorrento pilots this mech during the Battle of Castle Anorak.

Abilities

  • One of the largest mechs available in the game, Mechagodzilla is near indestructible and has a powerful lightning attack, but is hampered by its slow speed and maneuverability.
  • Whenever this incarnation does either it's Atomic Breath or Finger Missiles, it's optics will glow accordingly. The Finger Missiles have an orange glow, and the Atomic Breath has a blue glow.
  • The Finger Missiles are a reference to the 1974 movie, Godzilla vs Mecha-Godzilla, this being one of the mech's abilities.

History

Mechagodzilla is summoned onto the battlefield, where Aech (piloting The Iron Giant) charged at Sorrento's mech, firing at it with the Giant's Arm Cannon. This attack, however, proved unaffective when Mechagodzilla punched the gunter mech to the ground and blasting her in the back with it's Atomic Breath. Then it noticed the Lorean that Parzival and Art3mis were in and smacked the vehicle with it's tail. As it comes close to zeroing the two out by crushing them, Daito, piloting Gundam, flew in and intercepted the attack. After a brief but intense battle, Daito changed back to his normal avatar, still gripping onto the massive mech. Mechagodzilla then grabbed the small avatar, and after he shouted "FIRST TO THE EGG!" and flipping the mech off, it incinerated him with a small blast of it's Atomic Breath.It then saw Parzival and Shoto running to Castle Anorak. It was close to zeroing them out again, this time with it's Finger Missiles, until Aech interupted the attack, causing the missiles to fly out in random directions. After a brief struggle, Aech held Mechagodzilla still, and Art3mis in shooting distance with an M41A Pulse Rifle. She then proceeded to shoot out Mechagodzilla's left optic, revealing Sorrento inside. After Sorrento muttered "Shit. It's her.", she then threw a bomb inside the cockpit. The following detonation proceeded to explode the head of Mechagodzilla.
