Etymology[edit | edit source]

Atomic ray or atomic breath is tokusatsu's Godzilla's signature weapon, a nuclear blast that it generates inside of its body and unleashes from its jaws in the form of a blue or red radioactive heat ray.

The Heat-Ray is the primary offensive weapon used by the Martians in H. G. Wells' classic science fiction novel The War of the Worlds and its offshoots.
