Which is why it shouldn't be treated as an animal, like the American film did.

For all intents and purposes, it's a fairy-tale dragon put into modern decorations.

My favorite one was Godzilla vs. Destoroyah. I always cheered on Godzilla when he fought other monsters, instead of humans - the filmmakers knew that to all kids the GIANT ATOMIC BREATH DRAGON would be the main character.

Again, the American movie focused on Nick, and Zilla played an antagonistic role (along with the raptor-esque hatchlings), and ended up being killed... for being a scared animal.

But the cartoon about Zilla Jr. was great! They even got the significance of breathing awesomness!
