In 1996, Godzilla received the MTV Lifetime Achievement Award,[105] as well as being given a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2004 to celebrate the premiere of the character's 50th anniversary film, Godzilla: Final Wars. [106] Godzilla's pop-cultural impact has led to the creation of numerous parodies and tributes, as seen in media such as Bambi Meets Godzilla, which was ranked as one of the "50 greatest cartoons",[107] two episodes of Mystery Science Theater 3000[108] and the song "Godzilla" by Blue Öyster Cult. [109] Godzilla has also been used in advertisements, such as in a commercial for Nike, where Godzilla lost an oversized one-on-one game of basketball to a giant version of NBA player Charles Barkley. [110] The commercial was subsequently adapted into a comic book illustrated by Jeff Butler. [111] Godzilla has also appeared in a commercial for Snickers candy bars, which served as an indirect promo for the 2014 movie. Godzilla's success inspired the creation of numerous other monster characters, such as Gamera,[112][113]Reptilicus of Denmark,[114]Yonggary of South Korea,[100]Pulgasari of North Korea,[115]Gorgo of the United Kingdom[116] and the Cloverfield monster of the United States.
