Okay, I can see it now: both these monsters will be minding their own business when suddenly they're both subjected to unprovoked attacks form the other. Soon, the skirmish devolves into an all-out war that threatens to trample Japan underfoot, until finally both scientists researching the situation and Gamera's child friends get in the middle, pleading with them to stop and listen.

It turns out that Gamera and Godzilla were set up to think they were enemies by the returning aliens from the third planet of the black hole, who have built both a new and vastly improved MechaGodzilla and a never-before seen MechaGamera! The two kaiju proceed to join forces to defeat their cybernetic dopplegangers and once again foil the aliens' plans for world conquest.

This is a great concept, Toho and Daiei! Feel free to use it!

Gamera would win for the simple reason that he's a hero. Godzilla's sort of chaotic neutral, Gamera's chaotic good. Gamera is the more heroic, so he'd be written to win.

If that's what you choose to believe good on ya.

I believe Godzilla wins simply because good and evil is mealiness. The world is chaos. I choose to believe Gamera trips and falls, and Godzilla tears off and swallows his head. Then he dies weeks later from an impacted bowel. Godzilla rots in the ocean and poisons the earth. We're all dead in within a year and we can never argue which made up character is more powerful than another made up character.

Mine wasn't based on power, it was based on writing themes. The good guy always wins. Regardless of the properties of the characters, the writers for such a film would write Gamera to win because he's the good guy.

Sorry mate, but Godzilla wins, due to being 9 times heavier, and much more powerful. Gamera's speed did give an advantage, but it just wasn't enough

Replying to old posts, joy. It doesn't really matter what Godzilla's power, strengths or abilities are. Fact is Gamera's a good guy, and that's all there is to it. Good guy always wins. Look at when Kong and Godzilla fought. While considered a tie retroactively, the film's writing definitely gave the edge and obvious victory to King Kong. Look at when Mothra and Godzilla fight. Mothra always wins. The good guy always wins, so in this case Gamera would win because he's the obvious good guy.

That's a fan creation, and is thus going by the bullshit statistics for the characters, which is ultimately meaningless. What matters is what Toho would do if they ever greenlit the idea (which they wouldn't). I'm speaking from terms of an official creation, not what fans want. Gamera would win, he's a hero, Godzilla's not (more of an anti-hero). I'm not even necessarily speaking on what I personally would like to see, and I'm not going to clarify what that would be so as to stay neutral.

No, it's you who does not understand. If you even watched the video, it would have shown you the capabilities, personalities, and strategies of both Godzilla and Gamera. They take the actual facts and science of them and put it into the fight. True, Gamera is shown to be a hero, but he is the hero of Earth not the people of Earth (except for children). Godzilla is a different matter, at times Godzilla wants to destroy mankind out of revenge for their evil. However Godzilla has saved the planet, because the threat would destroy Godzilla itself.

I see a lot of people rooting for Godzilla. I love Godzilla too, but I'm gonna hand it to Gamera here. When you've got the ability to absorb your enemy's powers, there isn't much that'll stop you.

But the power of being known by everyone between 5 and 95 kinda gives you the upper hand. Big G has a better PR manager.

What does popularity in real life have to do with sheer power in fiction? The two do not and cannot cross-over, my friend.
Also, what you say is only really true in America and most other Western countries, and even then, that's not true/accurate either. In Japan, Godzilla and Gamera share a pretty equally balanced throne. Though, Gamera has a lot more leverage in the way of powers, whereas, Godzilla's only real advantage is his durability and regeneration ability.

Seriously. This is coming from a guy who's watched all 28 Godzilla movies, and 1 Gamera movie.

Fiction is written by people.

Therefore the "sheer power in fiction" as you call it, relies on people in "real life" to wield it. These thing's powers are in the artists and writers that create their story.

Then Daiei is going to shove a fairly large support beam through Toho's rear doors.

This debate is entirely pointless until Toho and Daiei decide to put aside their rivalry and have the two kaiju confront one-another. Which will likely never happen, and because of that, the only way we can figure out who'd win is through the use of evidence of the respective kaiju's feats.

I'm a Godzilla fan, and love him with every passion I can, but with evidence out, Gamera could easily fight him to a stalemate, if not defeat him.

The debate is pointless but not because of anything you stated, but because none of it is real. Its men in rubber suits fighting in cardboard cities while firecrackers go off around them. That's the only evidence Ive seen.

I'll point out one thing wrong with that statement, as there is only one thing wrong with it; The cities aren't made of cardboard.

Other than that, well said.

Its been a couple of years, but I'm pretty sure it was a 11x15 watercolor paper. Most of the under work was watercolor then I moved into marker and white out for details.

They were going to. Daiei, the people who made Gamera, approached Toho with it. They did this after Final Wars was released, and Toho wanted to retire Godzilla. It may happen in the future.

I heard something similar, but it was about twenty years ago, Daiei said they wanted to do it but only if Gamera killed Godzilla and they wouldn't be allowed to bring him back. I assume they responded by rolling on the floor laughing hysterically.
