Prior to the events of the game, Wutai was engaged in a war with the Shinra Electric Power Company who wanted to build a Mako Reactor near the village. Godo led Wutai against Shinra, but eventually lost the battle, largely due to Shinra's massive forces. Materia was banned in Wutai, and the village became a tourist attraction. This infuriated his daughter, Yuffie, and led her on a quest to gather materia to restore Wutai to its former glory. Her father's unwillingness to fight any further is cause for some discord between them, but after she battles him in the pagoda, he reveals that he, too, shares her obsession with materia.
 Boss Battle
Godo is fought as a boss as part of the side quest Pagoda of the Five Mighty Gods. The Enemy Skill "Trine" can be learned from Godo.
|Abilities||Beast Sword, Bio2, Demi3, Drain, Trine|
Since Godo is the last boss in the pagoda, expect him to be the most difficult. Pre-equip Yuffie with the Enemy Skill Materia if you haven't already learned the enemy skill "Trine". Also link the Gravity materia with the HP Absorb materia. Godo will occasionally cast Cure2 on himself, but continue your attacks steadily and it only serves to prolong the battle. Start the battle by casting Poison on Godo. Use Demi on Godo, and you will heal Yuffie at the same time. Use your limit breaks as they come up and this battle will be won.
