            To those who are saying that Anguirus and King Ceasar shouldn't be on the list, A) You're forgetting Final Wars, and B) Anguirus was Godzilla's enemy in two films. As for Mothra being excluded, I can understand that since she DID help Godzilla, but she only helped him in ONE film. Most of the time, she fought AGAINST him, so she should've been an honorable mention. Zilla was short-lived, so I dunno why you gave HER an honorable mention if she only fought the TRUE Godzilla ONCE.

                                If you're not a godzilla channel , don't make a godzilla video , especially if you don't know what your talking about ( Rodan , Anguiras , King Ceasar , Hedorah , Zilla are all wrong )

                                          I thought ORGA would at least be on the list but an honorable mention is good too and of course it would be King Ghidora would take the spot 👍👍

                                            Well anguirus is kinda a villan, in some movies but he is also an Allie in other movies so I guess it could be on this list

                                                        Kiryu was way more memorable and deserved to be on the list

                                                            MechaGodzilla is the alien one. But his best design is the second one.

                                                                                    As af as i know Godzilla never even throw a punch to King Caesar let alone being the villain, and it's also funny considering that Godzilla has fought Mothra far more times than he has with Anguirus.

You even made sure to distinguish the villainous original Mechagodzilla from the human-built Heisei and Millenium versions to make sure it fit the rules you'd already ignored twice! If you're going to make up arbitrary rules, you should at least follow them.
