Godzilla In Name Only

Zilla is Toho Studios’s official name for the star of the 1998 TriStar Pictures film Godzilla.

Created from a French nuclear test, Zilla is a mutated iguana. Before Toho officially dubbed the creature Zilla, many fans, who did not care for the reimagining of Godzilla for the Centropolis film, developed several nicknames to differentiate its title character from the “original” Godzilla. These nicknames included American Godzilla, Fraudzilla, Deanzilla (because of writer/producer Dean Devlin), Trizilla (because of TriStar Pictures), and most popularly “GINO” or Gino, an acronym for Godzilla In Name Only.
