|Reviews for Godzilla vs Cthulhu|
| Captain Milkshakes chapter 6 . 8/3
While it was an odd POV for the story, it was well written despite some of the dialogue redundant.
A rather lame end to the story though. I feel like you missed the point of Godzilla.
| Gojirahkiin chapter 6 . 7/22
It's been a long time since I first read this story, and some would say that it doesn't hold up as well to a second look in the light, but I still enjoy it.
It is, in essence, a Godzilla story written in the style of H.P. Lovecraft, which does not lend itself well to the kaiju genre, which may be what other reviews are picking up on. Despite that, the story is a high quality one; one of the few completed Godzilla vs. Cthulhu stories, and possibly the best written one of those.
Finally, for all those saying that radiation wouldn't kill Godzilla, it's a thinly veiled reference to Godzilla vs. Destoroyah; the idea is that Cthulhu is the one who triggered Godzilla's transformation into Burning Godzilla and his resulting death.

Here's something to think on In Cathulu lore Earth is being bombared by a form of radiation that is lethal to all creatures like Cathulu.
And Godzilla eats and stores radiation. Which means that ever since Godzilla was born he's been eating that radiation and is likely emitting it throughout his body just like all other radiation types and even the very ground he moves get's contaminated by it.
Wouldn't that mean that Godzilla is capable of killing one of them with either his nuclear fire or his presance or even cause his physical attacks to be more dangerous to Cathulu?

Sub par story which stands out by being the only readable one of its kind. nice idea but execution needs some work.

Good thing there is more than one Godzilla.
| Guest chapter 6 . 5/8/2014
Although I don't like the idea of Cthulhu calling upon outer gods (which is the term that was created by the rpg as it is implied that the "great old ones" and "other gods" are the same thing.) The story was extremely well written and stayed very true to the lovecraftian feel.

Radiation doesn't kill Godzilla in fact at times it has actually revived Godzilla. he also feeds on it so the more radioactive the better for him their is all indications in any Godzilla verse that Godzilla would thrive on Radioactivity if you want to reach levels leathal to godzilla then in order to do that it would have to be levels that would literally bake the planet.
Godzilla is also the embodiment of a force of nature and you can't simply kill a tornado you have to ride it out.
Also here is one thing to think of with Cthulhu it never before encountered a being that could fight it on it's own terms. Godzilla on the other hand has alot of experiance with fighting not only equals but also Monsters bigger, stronger, and More powerful than he is.
You in some ways having a fight between an experianced fighter vs, a powerful complacent fighter.
He would likely have no real idea and it would come to a complete shock that Godzilla is that powerful.

Very good story! You recreated Lovecraft's writing style very well without being ridiculously overdescriptive. Mentioning a main character's possibly mysterious death at the end is also a nice touch.
The Raiders of the Lost Ark reference ("top men") made me lol.

Loved the story, though I seriously doubt Godzilla died. He is probably sleeping too, dreaming his dark dreams.
| Khaymen chapter 5 . 11/10/2012
Great story so far! I love Lord Cthulhu and King of the monsters, Godzilla! Your writing keeps it interesting and you're very inspired, taking stuff from Lovecraft and the Godzilla movies. Can't wait for the ending!
| Kung-fu Blaziken chapter 6 . 6/11/2012
That was cool.
The slowly mounting horror, the amazing descriptions, and the one giant lizard who refused to back down, even in the face of the mightiest of the Great Old Ones.
Honestly, you can only really sum it up like so:
Godzilla punched out Cthulhu.
Yeah, just ponder that last sentence, and tell me that it doesn't sound awesome.

This was definitely unique. It maintains a fair degree of readability. Switching perspectives was a little jarring, but the narratives made up for it. Summarizing the mythos was a nice touch because Lovecraft can be hard to follow at times. More time was spent on that than Godzilla, which tips the balance of the story more in Cthulhu’s favor. It’s assumed that a reader might know more about him than Cthulhu, which is only a minor nitpick. The fights between the monsters were done well enough. I chuckled at Godzilla’s reaction to Cthulhu, but his fear was necessary. Crossovers can go wrong very quickly, but I think this one did fine.

Okay, I've never read any Lovecraft before, but this seems to really capture the feeling and narrative style associated with him (or at the very least, it sounds like a novel written in the mid-to-late 1800s), and it's pretty damn creepy. Which, since you were probably going for that, is a good thing. I can't wait to see whether the King of Monsters will reign victorious in the next chapter - which I'll get to read in about five minutes.

nice. I was thinking of doing a similar story, but you've done it far better than I could :)

Long live Godzilla, King of the Monsters, Bringer of Armaggedon, Child born of the Nuclear Flame, Nature's Avatar, Destroyer of Humankind. And all hail Cthulhu, mightiest of the Great Old Ones, High Priest of Yog-Sothoth, Sleeping King of Dreams, King of the Rapine, Brother of Hastur! Both Godzilla and Cthulhu are by far the greatest monsters ever imagined. I sense your respect to both of them.
