Minilla (ミニラ, Minira), also referred to as Minya or Milla, is a monster from the Godzilla Showa series of films and is the first of several young Godzillas in the series.
Minilla is much more friendly with humans than any of his contemporaries, and once appeared in the dreams of a troubled boy in order to give an example of how to deal with bullying and other childhood issues. He is also very playful, enjoying such games as kicking large boulders and jumping over or riding on his father's tail. While he is usually fearful of other monsters, he occasionally shows courage when defending his human friends, although more often than not he is outmatched by other kaiju.
Minilla's main weapon is atomic smoke rings, though he can fire an atomic ray like his father it is much more energy consuming for him unlike his father thus he does not use it as often. Once hatched, he was able to send a signal to summon Godzilla from the ocean depths. This signal has the ability to disrupt other forms of electrical transmission such as radar and radio.
