King Kong Should Have Beat Godzilla
Debate Rounds (4)
One thing to remember is that both Godzilla and King Kong have many different incarnations. Godzilla' s first era, the Showa era, is entirely separate from the Heisei era. My opponent has mixed the two eras. For instance, in his argument concerning the size of Godzilla' s brain, he references Godzilla defending his Son in the movie "All Monsters Attack" (Showa Era) and Godzilla morning his son's death in "Godzilla vs Destroyah" (Heisei Era). As the Movie "King Kong vs Godzilla" is a Showa era film, the second point has absolutely no bearing.
Now, on to my argument. King Kong was capable of harnassing the power of electricity ("King Kong vs Godzilla"). As Godzilla has shown some weakness to Electricity, this is extremely valuable. In addition, Kong was capable of lifting Godzilla up, something few other Kajui have done. With this combination of strength and electricity, it is no wonder that Kong defeated Godzilla.
All the lightning did for Kong was give him an electrical grip. It did not augment his strength in any way. With his own natural strength, Kong was capable of lifting and throwing Godzilla.
Even moreso, the electricity did not increase Kong's endurance. Despite that, Kong still withstood Godzilla' s assault. The original time Kong went down was merely a fluke. Godzilla was unable to replicate it, or capitalize on it.
Further more, Godzilla is shown to be affected by one million volts of electricity. When Kong was harnassing electricity, he was harnassing natural lightning. Natural lightning is known to have as many as one billion volts. With this power, it is no wonder Godzilla was defeated. So, in addition to having overwhelming strength, Kong would have massive power to complement it. Godzilla would have no defense against this deadly combination.
Kong also has longer arms, which will allow him to grasp Godzilla from afar, and then shock him into submission. This, coupled with Kong having a speed advantage over Godzilla, are more reason that show Kong would win any encounter between the creatures.
As for his speed advantage, speed may not always be the best thing. Godzilla is built like a tank, no wonder he's slow. In addition, Kong is easily distracted seeing as he's in love with a human girl. Godzilla gets the job done until his opponent is on the ground, that's why i wish there was a King Kong vs Godzilla re-make so Godzilla could set the record straight.
Yes, Godzilla is very strong. He may have lifted 2,000 pounds, but Kong lifted Godzilla. Godzilla weighs 40,000,000 pounds.  This shows once more Kong's unbelievable strength.
As to Kong being defeated by berry juice, this too is irrelevant. There is no way it would affect a battle between the two, as Godzilla doesn't usually carry a supply of berries with him.
Kong's speed would allow him to overwhelm Godzilla. With speed to stay out of Godzilla' s way, long arms to deliver Kong's blows, electricity to weaken his opponent, and stunning strength, King Kong would finish Godzilla.
I thank my opponent for this fun and pleasant debate. Please vote Pro! =)

Reasons for voting decision: The sole determinant of this debate would have to be the content of the arguments themselves. This is because in terms of conduct, S&G, and sources, both debaters were evenly balanced. Arguments - Pro. This debate falls into the territory of "should" meaning that the one with the highest preponderance of evidence wins this one. With this in consideration, I felt that Pro presented a stronger case for why King King should beat Godzilla. This was done by showing Godzilla's weakness to electricity, King-Kong's superior strength, speed, and reach of arms. When all this is taken into consideration, Godzilla's features of being a tank and having a tail holds no real superior air. For me, it is evident that King-Kong should have beat Godzilla. All in all, this was a great debate. Best of luck to both debaters in the future! Cheers!
