A Godzilla figurine, dubbed Ryan, made a perfect travel buddy for an Australian photographer and videographer who got into all sorts of shenanigans around the world.
When the Tokyo-Tromping Ryan isn’t busy destroying buildings, he’s globetrotting with Kieran Murray, an Australian traveler who got the famous Japanese lizard monster figurine for $8 at a comic book shop, according to BoredPanda.
At first, he only took the Godzilla figurine to all the landmarks he visited, and snapped pictures as he casually struck a pose.
However, things took an interesting turn when Murray learned how to use photoshop. To compare, here is what Ryan actually looks like in real life:
And with the power of photoshop, here he is now:
Ryan is like a normal human being sometimes. He likes to enjoy the holidays with Murray in places like New York. He especially likes Christmas trees, but who doesn’t?
He once got trapped while playing in a water fountain in Atlanta. Poor Ryan…
Ryan connects very well with animals, even thought he’s a mutated lizard monster who is capable of destroying entire cities. Check him out playing with baby goats and a giraffe:
Ryan also has to take flights like everyone else whenever he wants to travel. Be careful not to engage in a fight over who gets to use the armrest. Murray seems to have learned this the hard way…
You don’t want to get on his bad side…for obvious reasons.
