MechaGodzilla was a giant mechanized version of Godzilla created by Apex Cybernetics. He was created to be a superior power to all Titans and allow humans to become the apex species on Earth again. He was based off of the Titanus Gojira species.
MechaGodzilla was an invention created by Apex, a tech company founded by Walter Simmons in 2014. The robot was built in secret for many years, presumably after the Attacks of 2014 revealed the existence of the Titans to the world. The goal behind his creation was to exterminate Godzilla and all other Titans so that humanity could become the dominant species on Earth once again. To further his goal, Apex retrieved the severed head of King Ghidorah was retrieved from Alan Jonah and the robot would be telphatically by Ren Serizawa, the son of the late Ishiro Serizawa. However, Apex sought to find an efficient power source to power MechaGodzilla and believed that a power source might be found in the Hollow Earth, a mysterious ecosystem located deep within the Earth.
Five years after Godzilla defeated King Ghidorah in Boston, Godzilla became aware of what Apex was doing and therefore sought to stop the creation of MechaGodzilla as he knew it would possibly threaten the planet like Ghidorah nearly did five years prior. He suddenly displayed violent and aggressive behavior and attacked several Apex facilities across the world to stop the MechaGodzilla project by any means necessary.
