Godzilla vs. Destoroyah (1995)

The twenty-second film in the series was also the last in the Heisei era. Godzilla appears but is changed in appearance (more than just the usual suit mod). The level of potential destruction the creature carries is also changed, upped from being the immediate area to a radius even more terrifying.
The film effectively brings the series full circle, having the actions taken by protagonists in 1954 be relevant to those in 1994. Interestingly, it also makes use of something much older to bring something new to the table.
Destoroyah is an insectoid behemoth. If you've been paying attention to the Heisei era kaijū thus far you'll have noticed that they all transform into something more menacing. Destoroyah doesn't outdo Biolante for levels of sheer awe, but is certainly one of the most aggressive of the series.
