It was a quiet day on Monster Island. Zilla had
found an area on the island to call his own and he decided to build
a nest. He immediately began to dig a large ditch in the ground
but before too long he heard a loud, screeching roar. The mutant
lizard looked up to see Gorosaurus growling at him. Gorosaurus was
angry - this was his territory. The allosaur raised his head and
roared into the sky, then charged. Zilla roared in retaliation and
dodged the dinosaur's attack. Gorosaurus ran past the ditch, but
turned and roared at the intruder. Zilla roared at Gorosaurus, letting
him know he had no intention of backing down. Gorosaurus nodded
approvingly. He'd been hoping for a fight. The two reptiles charged.
In mid-charge, Zilla leapt into the air, soaring
high over Gorosaurus. The oversized dinosaur turned to face Zilla
as he landed and charged again. Zilla lashed out with his claws,
slashing Gorosaurus' face. Gorosaurus roared angrily as blood dripped
from the slashes. Zilla prepared to attack again, but Gorosaurus
reared back onto his tail and let loose with a powerful kangaroo
kick, sending Zilla flying backwards and into a pile of boulders.
The giant reptile clutched one of the rocks in his claws and tossed
it at Gorosaurus, bouncing it off the dinosaur's snout. Slightly
stunned by the blow, Gorosaurus allowed Zilla to return to his feet
and pounce. The two beasts toppled to the ground, with Zilla screaming
at his foe, demanding he stand down. Gorosaurus roared his defiance
and lashed out with his legs, sending Zilla crashing to the ground
Gorosaurus rose to his feet and advanced, but Zilla
was not without tricks of his own. Spinning around, he whipped the
dinosaur's legs with his tail, causing Gorosaurus to stagger. Then
he unleashed a powerful gust of wind from his mouth, causing Gorosaurus
to take a step backwards. With his foe distracted, Zilla immediately
began tunnelling into the earth. Before Gorosaurus could stop him,
Zilla disappeared into the soil. Gorosaurus immediately began scanning
the area for any sign of his opponent. He sniffed the air but could
not pick up the creature's scent. Suddenly, the ground behind Gorosaurus
exploded as Zilla emerged, leaping high into the air as he went.
Landing on Gorosaurus' tail, he drew a cry of pain from the dino-beast
and sank his claws into Gorosaurus' back. Gorosaurus shook violently
as he tried to dislodge his foe.
Zilla withdrew his claws, and as Gorosaurus turned
to face his foe, Zilla lashed out, his maw open wide. Snapping his
jaws shut, the mutant beast bit down on his opponent's snout, drawing
blood. Gorosaurus shrieked out as Zilla's teeth pierced his flesh.
He tried shaking him loose, but that only worsened the bites. Despite
all of Gorosaurus' hollering, Zilla kept his hold. In a last-ditch
attempt to free himself, Gorosaurus simply dropped to the ground.
The ploy worked, wrenching his snout free from Zilla's mouth. When
Zilla bent over to attack again, Gorosaurus reached over and bit
Zilla's leg. Zilla reared his head back and cried out in pain.
Gorosaurus released his toothy grip and rolled onto
his back, again lashing out with his powerful legs. The blow staggered
Zilla backwards, allowing Gorosaurus to rise to his feet. As he
readied himself to strike again, Gorosaurus tasted blood. His blood.
This was unacceptable.
Just as Zilla was about to reach him, Gorosaurus
reared back and landed a kangaroo kick to Zilla's face. The mutated
reptile crashed to the ground, but before he could regain his bearing,
Gorosaurus was upon him, locking his jaws onto Zilla's neck. Zilla
began to panic, striking out wildly at Gorosaurus with his claws.
Gorosaurus grunted in pain as he felt Zilla's claws slashing his
neck and torso, drawing even more of the predator's blood, but this
time it did not concern him. He had to focus on the task at hand.
Keeping his jaws in their deathgrip, Gorosaurus readied his neck
muscles, and then...
Zilla's lifeless form went limp. Gorosaurus opened
his mouth and let the deceased kaiju slump to the ground. Roaring
victoriously into the heavens, Gorosaurus let everyone within hearing
range know of his power. He began feasting upon his latest kill.
