If you have an older sibling I think this will work for you: remember the time you were picked on by bullies and your older brother/sister came to your rescue? This is a common theme and so much so that it ought to be listed among the better-known archetypes (e.g., the hero, the mother figure, the wise man, etc.). These days that older sibling is Godzilla. While the character of Godzilla started out being a terrible monster, recent movies now depict him as a kind of older sibling who - reluctantly - comes to your rescue when you're in trouble. Without giving away any significant spoilers, in Godzilla: King of the Monsters, the world gets in trouble and Godzilla comes marching in to make things right. Like your older sibling, he really doesn't want to get involved (he'd rather just keep sleeping), but, ok, I guess I better fix things.
