Character biography Godzilla Junior first appeared in Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla II as an egg. Presuming it to be a Pteranodon egg, a scientific team unearthed it from Adona Island and shipped it to Japan for study. The egg displayed strange psychic properties, even imprinting itself upon the biologist Azusa Gojo, before finally hatching to reveal an infant Godzillasaurus, who is named BabyGodzilla. He was a harmless creature with teeth suitable only for chewing soft plant material. When Godzilla later appeared, having sought out Baby through an unexplained psychic link, Baby left with Godzilla, later settling on Birth Island.
By the time of Godzilla vs. SpaceGodzilla, Baby, who by now had grown to almost a third of Godzilla's height; (probably due to exposure to Godzilla's radiation, otherwise he might have grown into an ordinary Godzillosaur). Now known as Little Godzilla, he interacted periodically with the human characters for a portion of the film, taking a particular liking to Major Yuki of G-Force and establishing a psychic bond with Miki Saegusa. Little One was injured and imprisoned in a cage of crystals by SpaceGodzilla upon his arrival to Earth and remained caged until the defeat of SpaceGodzilla by the combined might of Godzilla and Moguera.
Little Godzilla continued to grow, and in Godzilla vs. Destoroyah was renamed Godzilla Junior. He had reached nearly half Godzilla's height. Junior proved himself to be quite a capable fighter, successfully defeating Destoroyah, though with difficulty. Junior was seemingly killed during his second battle against Destoroyah at Haneda Airport, where Godzilla and Destoroyah soon fought. However, the radioactivity resulting from Godzilla's subsequent nuclear meltdown reanimated Junior, who appeared in the final shot of the film as the new Godzilla. Unlike, his father, Junior has a very kind personality, even when older. Like his counter part Minilla he is often very naive, seen playing with children in Godzilla vs Mechagodzilla II and saving Miki from Destroyah. In Final Wars, that is why the Godzilla in Final Wars is less aggressive than the other Millenium dinosaurs, as seen sparing people in the end by Minilla, sparing Rodan, Cesar, and Anguirus, and taking the role of a heroe, though he is seen rarely doing destruction.
According to producer Shogo Tomiyama in a "G-Fan" magazine interview, he intended to revive Godzilla Junior for the 50th anniversary film Godzilla: Final Wars. In the first draft screenplay he and Wataru Mimura wrote, this Godzilla was Godzilla Junior from the Heisei series (which is why everything is on the 100 meter scale again) and Godzilla was imprisoned in the ice at the South Pole in the late 90s. The main action of the film was to have taken place in 2032. When Ryuhei Kitamura and his writer rewrote the script to their liking, this plot device was pretty much removed, making the specifics of the action of the film unknown. The result becomes something up to the audience to decide.This Godzilla in the Godzilla:Final Wars is very much likely to be him as in the opening credits,connecting his image of when he came back to life as an adult to Godzilla being trapped in the ice.
