"-zilla" is an English suffix, a back-formation derived from the Japanese movie character Godzilla[1][2]. It is popular for the names of software and websites[citation needed].

This trend has been observed since the popularization of the Mozilla Project, which itself included the Internet Relay Chat client ChatZilla.[citation needed]

The use of the suffix was contested by Toho, owners of the trademark Godzilla, in a lawsuit against the website Davezilla[3] and also against Sears for their mark Bagzilla[4].
