Tokyo was silent.
Black skies clung to the heavens. Skyscrapers stood
without power. Vehicles clogged up the vacant streets. Smoldering
neighborhoods burned unspoiled. Behold the largest city on Earth,
once teeming with a population of 8 million, now nothing more than
a ghost town. Through out the years, Tokyo endured the most disasters
ever recorded in history. Had it at last faced a disaster it could
not bear? Most of its people believed so, which is why they evacuated
weeks prior, and with good reason.
Four giants ran amok.
Sleeping on the ground, its claws curled around
the Japanese Diet, rested the monster Orga. At first glance, it
resembled a gorilla. But its grayish flesh and alien origin dispelled
any relations to the primate. It had bulking shoulders and a useless
thin tail. One shoulder housed a massive hole. Its wedge shaped
head bore a mouth filled with sharp teeth. Orga’s hideous
features mirrored the tragedy of its past. It was destined to become
the perfect organism. Instead, it became an abomination.
Dagahra, the four-legged winged dragon plowed through
the murky waters of Tokyo Bay. Its emerald hide helped it blend
in with its underwater surroundings. Layers of yellow flesh interlaced
its underbelly and throat. Atop Dagahra’s head, three horns
poked out. Hidden black sacs nestled in its shoulders. Its long
tail swished the waves. It had not yet come ashore. If it did, it
knew it’d clash with the other monsters. Sooner or later,
Dagahra knew it’d come down to that. Until then, it’d
conserve its strength by feeding off the Bay’s pollution.
Aquariums harbored schools of skeletons. No aquatic
creatures lurked beyond the glass walls. Not a single soul witnessed
the travesty that befell these poor animals. If any had, then they
too would’ve died. Crimson eyes floated within the dark waters,
listening to the monstrous wails beyond the walls. To Destoroyah,
the sounds were a challenge, one it’d answer.
Dozens of crystal spires poked out of the ground,
gleaming with cosmic lust. Not long ago, Tokyo Tower received a
makeover, and now acted as an energy conduit for the cosmic saurian,
SpaceGodzilla. Dark blue flesh weaved most of his body, but the
frontal arc of his chest was blood red. His shoulder crystals pulsated,
casting its light over the eerie environment. An arrow shaped horn
sparkled on top of his forehead. At the tip of his tail resided
several crystallized spikes. His red eyes glared with malice. Hovering
above its crystal fortress, SpaceGodzilla shrieked once more. He
had long grown tired of the other monsters lumbering beyond his
crystal borders. Should his challenge go unanswered, then SpaceGodzilla
shall seek them out.
SpaceGodzilla turned to the source and spotted Orga
charging him, running on all fours like a gorilla. Tokyo Tower crackled,
instilling cosmic power into SpaceGodzilla’s shoulder crystals.
He opened his mouth, unleashing the corona beam. The scarlet beam
twisted in midair as if it had a mind of its own. Orga stopped,
taken aback by SpaceGodzilla’s primary weapon. The corona
beam encircled Orga before striking its neck and detonating. Orga
howled in pain as burnt flesh dangled from its ruptured throat.
Seconds later, mounds of healthy flesh bulged out of the wound,
replacing it. SpaceGodzilla stared at his foe, surprised. This disgusting
creature could heal its wounds in seconds! But what else could it
Orga charged. SpaceGodzilla levitated higher, bending
gravity to his will. Beneath him, Orga leapt up and down, swiping
the air with its claws. SpaceGodzilla mocked his foe with an ear-piercing
laugh. Not even Orga’s strong legs could help it jump high
enough to attack its opponent! SpaceGodzilla’s jaws parted,
spewing his corona beam once more. At first, it was but a single
projectile. It soon branched off into many. Several corona beams
ravaged Orga’s hide. Orga’s painful cries were drowned
out by SpaceGodzilla’s howls of pleasure. But SpaceGodzilla’s
happiness faded when Orga’s body repaired the damages in seconds.
To prevent further abuse, Orga jumped back. It appeared
to be smarter than it looked. SpaceGodzilla growled in disappointment.
But his disappointment subsided when it saw Orga kneeling forward,
bowing its head! SpaceGodzilla descended to the ground, accepting
Orga’s surrender with his screeching wail. Indeed, it was
pain that brought obedience to this wretched beast. Through out
history, kings and warlords alike understood one simple concept:
fear aspired control and pain was its instrument. Tonight, SpaceGodzilla
used that instrument well.
Unbeknownst to SpaceGodzilla, the large hole in
Orga’s left shoulder was not a deformity. As orange-yellowish
light gathered inside, SpaceGodzilla soon learned its true purpose.
A streak of concussive light shot out of Orga’s shoulder and
slammed into SpaceGodzilla’s chest. The kinetic force alone
sent SpaceGodzilla reeling back. SpaceGodzilla crushed several of
his crystal spires beneath his bulk. Before the stunned cosmic saurian
could regain its composure, Orga pounced on top of him. Orga battered
SpaceGodzilla wildly. SpaceGodzilla’s tail flailed in the
air, reflecting his situation. Orga buried its claws into SpaceGodzilla’s
flesh, assimilating his DNA. SpaceGodzilla watched in horror as
a single shimmering crystal poked out of Orga’s shoulder.
Before long, the single shoulder crystal started summoning cosmic
energies from Tokyo Tower.
SpaceGodzilla bellowed in rage.
His body radiated a reddish aura. Crimson bolts
flared out of SpaceGodzilla’s flesh, mincing Orga’s
claws. Orga snarled as SpaceGodzilla unleashed a shockwave of blistering
heat. The concussive force and sweltering temperatures prevailed,
blowing Orga away. Smoke sizzled off Orga’s flayed flesh,
clouding the air around it. SpaceGodzilla levitated to his feet,
drawing more power from Tokyo Tower.
There will be no mercy for Orga. SpaceGodzilla will
kill it. Tomorrow, the Sun will rise and see nothing but a smoldering,
Orga rose to its feet, its charred skin not yet
healed. It spotted SpaceGodzilla’s hovering toward it. No
matter the injuries, Orga knew it was stronger. SpaceGodzilla floated
closer, convinced of its impending victory. Orga’s shoulder
crystal sparkled. SpaceGodzilla stopped, recognizing the situation.
Orga readied its primary weapon, using its newly constructed shoulder
crystal to supply it extra juice. SpaceGodzilla descended to the
ground, reserving his strength. Yellow-reddish hued energy stormed
out of Orga’s shoulder. It twisted in midair, proving to be
as malleable as SpaceGodzilla’s corona beam!
SpaceGodzilla growled, cursing Orga’s existence.
Before the beam could crash into SpaceGodzilla, a
barrier of light impeded its advance. Behind the shield, arcane
eyes focused on Orga. Orga returned the gesture, knowing it could
do nothing more. Tokyo Tower flashed, implanting cosmic energy into
SpaceGodzilla. Orga snarled in defiance, fearing the cosmic saurian
not in the least. SpaceGodzilla’s shield faded, making way
for an offensive strike. But a corona beam was never fired. Instead,
lavender hued energies stabbed the darkness, cutting a gaping hole
into Orga’s backside. Horrific, painful cries escaped Orga’s
mouth. SpaceGodzilla watched the gray behemoth fall to its side,
its injury obscured by steam.
SpaceGodzilla searched for Orga’s attacker,
wary but intrigued by its identity.
A leviathan crashed its feet into the ground. Its
exoskeleton was dark red and blended in with the backdrop. At the
tip of its tail, a pair of horns branched out. Claws sharp enough
to render titanium wiggled in excitement. Batlike wings flapped,
billowing strong winds. Its chest was guarded by a thick yellow
carapace. SpaceGodzilla marveled at the fearsome giant before it.
But not even its terrifying size could compare to its demented head.
Its skull had a demonic shape, designed to instill fear. Rows of
needlelike teeth harbored its mouth. Six spikes jutted out of its
cheeks. An elongated horn stood out of the forehead.
Destoroyah’s crimson eyes found SpaceGodzilla’s
own. Diplomacy was not an option. Neither titan understood the pretense
of peace. All they knew was power and death. Nothing else mattered.
Destructive energies sprayed out of Destoroyah’s
maw. SpaceGodzilla felt its sweltering essence slice into his flesh.
SpaceGodzilla screamed, his painful cries reverberating off skyscrapers
miles away. Never before had the cosmic saurian felt such pain!
This unholy creature shall pay for its transgressions. Corona beams
lashed out, harpooning Destoroyah’s hide, shredding it. Destoroyah
hollered in protest, ignoring the pain. SpaceGodzilla gaped at the
green blood oozing out of his foe’s splintered flesh.
It can bleed. That means it can die!
SpaceGodzilla fired a barrage of corona beams. Destoroyah
felt the cosmic energies flay its hide. Its putrid blood spurted
onto the landscape. Destoroyah howled, flapped its wings, and launched
itself at SpaceGodzilla. SpaceGodzilla’s genetics were derived
from Godzilla, the most savage creature to ever stalk the earth.
Even then, he could not retain his balance after Destoroyah tackled
him to the ground. For the moment, Destoroyah loomed over the cosmic
saurian, yet didn’t attack.
It was an insult. One SpaceGodzilla did not take
Having already dealt with Orga, SpaceGodzilla sought
to rid himself of Destoroyah in the same manner. Before SpaceGodzilla
could discharge his burning energies, an eerie orange glow embroiled
Destoroyah’s horn. An energetic dagger shot out, rendering
SpaceGodzilla’s sternum. SpaceGodzilla felt his flesh burn,
organs dissolve, and crystal bones melt. As a side effect, milky
white substances developed to thwart SpaceGodzilla’s regeneration.
Amplified corona beams departed SpaceGodzilla’s stricken maw,
disemboweling Destoroyah’s skull.
Green blood sprayed out, smearing SpaceGodzilla.
Destoroyah stood erect, most of its face disintegrated. SpaceGodzilla
levitated to his feet. Never before had he seen such a sadistic
beast. Tokyo Tower fed SpaceGodzilla more cosmic energy. Corona
beams pelted Destoroyah, mincing its carapace. Once more, Destoroyah’s
blood spewed into the air.
Destoroyah ignored the pain and retaliated.
Dagahra flew above the wrecked city, masked in darkness.
After consuming a large amount of pollution, the sea dragon was
at last eager to fight. His eyes befell two dueling giants. Miles
above Tokyo Tower, dark clouds parted. The cosmos shined down its
essence, empowering the warped structure. Dagahra deduced its purpose,
knowing it acted as an energy source. The sea dragon proceeded to
focus on the brawling monsters. It watched as the winged kaiju hooked
its tail to the other’s neck. To showcase its strength, it
yanked the crystal beast off its feet. Suddenly, its tail flashed.
Destoroyah roared. Though its eyes were useless,
it could still sense its menacing opponent. And now, it had SpaceGodzilla
where it wanted him. Its tail flashed, as Micro-Oxygen corroded
SpaceGodzilla’s neck to siphon his energy. In desperation,
SpaceGodzilla’s telekinesis ripped the crystal spires out
of the ground and launched them at Destoroyah. Sharp crystals struck
Destoroyah’s thick carapace, shattering on impact. Confused
by the futile crystal bombardment, Destoroyah unraveled its tail.
No longer helpless, SpaceGodzilla levitated to his feet, carving
corona beams into Destoroyah’s bulk. Unable to take anymore
punishment, Destoroyah slumped to the ground.
Moving to strike his downed opponent, SpaceGodzilla
replenished his energy. Before the cosmic saurian could unleash
his onslaught, a white cloud shot out of Destoroyah’s pores,
and enveloped its damaged shape. SpaceGodzilla growled, recognizing
Destoroyah’s retreating strategy. He fired a corona beam into
the cloud, striking nothing. SpaceGodzilla surveyed the landscape,
acknowledging its destruction with mild interest. His wounds, however
horrible, paled in comparison to the damages done to Tokyo. The
horn atop his head sparkled, heralding the growth of more crystals.
But neither the crystals nor Tokyo Tower could relay cosmic energy
It had been diverted to empower Orga.
SpaceGodzilla’s corona beams tore into Orga.
Orga charged the cosmic saurian, ignoring the damages the corona
beams dealt. Using its momentum, Orga bashed SpaceGodzilla’s
face with its large claw. SpaceGodzilla crashed into the ground,
unconscious. Orga loomed over its fallen adversary, studying its
motionless figure. It raised its demented claw, eager to bury it
deep into SpaceGodzilla’s flesh, and unlock the secrets of
his DNA. Suddenly, Dagahra dove from the dark sky, blasting Orga
with his oral beam. Taken aback by Dagahra’s unexpected attack,
Orga struggled to locate its new attacker. Dagahra aimed for Orga’s
eyes, blinding it.
Dagahra flew hundreds of feet above the abandoned
streets, using the skyscrapers as cover. But Orga never returned
fire. Smoke sizzled out of its charred eyes. Dagahra peaked around
the corner of an office building, cautious. Orga stood next to the
fallen SpaceGodzilla, waiting for its eyes to heal. Dagahra prepared
to strike, until the ground beneath him rumbled. Several Destoroyah
Aggregates, crablike creatures smaller than Dagahra, burst out of
the streets of Tokyo. Dagahra spotted them crawling up Orga, spraying
destructive energies out of their mandibles. Orga thrashed around,
trying to throw them off. But their sharp legs and claws helped
keep them anchored to Orga’s flesh. Dagahra opened his mouth,
preparing to fire his primary weapon. Two Destoroyah Aggregates
jumped onto him, pinning him to the street. As their sharp appendages
injected Micro-Oxygen into his veins, Dagahra groaned. It wouldn’t
be long before the sea dragon’s energy was no more.
Orga clasped its claw around a Destoroyah Aggregate’s
skull and squeezed. Other Aggregates fired their fiery projectiles,
scalding Orga’s hide. Yet the ravenous alien was not deterred.
It crushed the Aggregate’s skull. It proceeded to annihilate
the others with its shoulder cannon. Charred remnants of the Destoroyah
Aggregates lay scattered around the battlefield. Though burnt beyond
recognition, Destoroyah was not dead. It’d require more Micro-Oxygen
to return to its full stature. Meanwhile, Orga was busy sinking
its claws into the motionless SpaceGodzilla.
Dagahra clamped his jaws around a Destoroyah Aggregate’s
leg. He yanked it off of his back and blew it to shreds with his
oral beam. Pillars of fire and reddish particles blinded the sea
dragon. The other Destoroyah Aggregate bonded with the shimmering
cloud and transformed into a winged monstrosity. Unlike its previous
forms, Destoroyah’s body was slender. It resembled its final
state, yet was a smaller and quicker creature. Dagahra watched it
fly above the city, blasting its buildings to cinders. Destoroyah
spotted Orga standing over SpaceGodzilla, leeching off its life
force. Destoroyah witnessed a second shoulder crystal sprout out
of Orga’s skin. It moved to strike, but Dagahra flew at it,
and knocked it out of the sky. Destoroyah slammed into the earth
so hard it formed an impact crater. Dagahra’s oral beam bombarded
Destoroyah. As the sea dragon circled around the impact crater like
a bird of prey, Orga siphoned the cosmic energies out of SpaceGodzilla’s
crystal spires. Dagahra prepared to unleash another volley, until
Orga’s shoulder cannon blasted him out of the sky. Dagahra
landed next to Destoroyah, taken aback by Orga’s attack. But
the sea dragon was even more surprised when Orga’s falling
mass came crashing down on top of him. Whether out of mercy or sheer
luck, Dagahra wasn’t awake to feel Orga’s bone shattering
Tokyo Tower summoned energy from the cosmos. It relayed
its energy to its fallen master. Tokyo Tower’s crackling form
glinted off SpaceGodzilla’s opening eyes. Shoulder crystals
flashed cosmic radiance.
Pain flooded Dagahra’s mind as he regained
consciousness. Orga bent down, closing his jaws around Dagahra’s
neck. Earlier, the alien succeeded in uncovering the secrets of
SpaceGodzilla. And now, it will add Dagahra’s DNA to its own.
Orga felt a tingling sensation befall its backside. Crystallized
wings sprouted out of its back. A second hole appeared on Orga’s
right shoulder, harboring an unseen menace. Dagahra couldn’t
believe it; Orga was mixing its stolen genes with SpaceGodzilla’s!
In desperation, Dagahra opened its shoulder sacs and fired a payload
of barem. Designed to immobilize any living creature, Dagahra made
sure to cover Orga head-to-toe. Orga felt the barem secrete acid
hot enough to burn the outer layer of his skin. It was also depleting
Orga’s energy supply. In retaliation, Orga’s right shoulder
fired its own barem! Dagahra’s oral beam shot past the enemy
barem, grazing Orga’s abdomen. It wasn’t enough; Orga
fired a shoulder cannon and barem combo, successfully neutralizing
the sea dragon.
Orga turned, focusing on Destoroyah. Though it was
the spawn of a glorious alien empire, Orga never inherited the intelligence
of its predecessors. But even its primitive mind could understand
the necessity of tapping into the power of Destoroyah. It approached
the fallen crustacean, intent on harvesting its power. Waves of
energy emanated out of Destoroyah’s still form, disemboweling
the land around it. Cascades of fire heralded the malevolent shape
of Destoroyah’s final state, replenished once more. Orga stopped,
casting a worried glance at the resurrected destroyer. Destoroyah
glowered at the frightened creature, challenging it to make the
first move. Orga faced its fears by lashing out, impaling its claws
deep into Destoroyah’s body, absorbing its life force.
Destoroyah’s laughter mocked Orga’s efforts.
Orga felt its skin dissolve off its bones. Before long, the alien
creature writhed on the ground, consumed by agony. Destoroyah snickered
once more, relishing in Orga’s suffering. Energy beams blindsided
the cackling beast, torching its scarlet hide. Destoroyah spotted
Dagahra standing on all fours, unaffected by Orga’s barem.
It appeared the sea dragon was immune. Nevertheless, it just picked
a fight with a beast unlike any other. Destoroyah charged the tinier
creature, wishing to crush the life out of it. Dagahra proved faster
by flapping its wings and flying out of the impact crater. Destoroyah
followed in hot pursuit, no longer interested in Orga.
But another creature was.
A dark shadow loomed above the ravaged alien. Orga’s
weak eyes ascended upwards to gape at the levitating SpaceGodzilla.
SpaceGodzilla glared at Orga’s shoulder crystals, disgusted.
In a flash, Orga’s cosmic energy departed its shoulder crystals,
empowering SpaceGodzilla. Orga fell to its knees, a shadow of its
former self. Had it known Destoroyah’s essence was the very
blight of life, Orga would’ve never tried to absorb it. Soon
a skeleton shall be all that remains. SpaceGodzilla swung his tail,
shattering Orga’s shoulder crystals. Orga will die, but it
will be by SpaceGodzilla’s hand.
Flying above Tokyo Bay, its demented shadow gliding
across the murky surface, Destoroyah closed in on its query. Destructive
energies blazed out of its jaws, grazing Dagahra’s speeding
figure. Dagahra felt his skin sizzle and burn, yet he did not stop.
If he did, he knew he’d fall prey to Destoroyah’s wrath.
But he could try a different approach. Dagahra reduced its speed,
allowing Destoroyah to catch up. Destoroyah’s horn flashed
as it forged a hot blade of energy. Dagahra avoided the energy katana,
barely. He positioned himself underneath Destoroyah and attacked.
Bolts of energy rippled out of Dagahra’s spines, pelting Destoroyah’s
underbelly. Dagahra roared in despair, for his projectiles could
not breach Destoroyah’s thick carapace. Before the sea dragon
could despair further, Destoroyah dropped down onto Dagahra’s
back. Dagahra struggled to support Destoroyah’s enormous bulk.
Destoroyah, however, had other plans. Once again, Destoroyah’s
horn gave life to an energy blade. It swiped down, slicing deep
into Dagahra’s shoulder. Dagahra cried out, his painful roars
could be heard for miles. But Destoroyah wasn’t finished.
It sliced Dagahra’s other shoulder off. Blood sprayed out
of Dagahra’s lost limb. The lost of blood and Destoroyah’s
weight brought Dagahra down.
Both crashed into the frigid waters. Relieved to
be in his habitat once more, Dagahra swam circles around Destoroyah,
blasting it with his oral beam and barem. Destoroyah did not return
fire. Dagahra watched the vile creature float. The sea dragon roared,
its ferocity rivaled by none. It plowed through the dark waves,
heading straight for Destoroyah. To Dagahra’s surprise, Destoroyah’s
body dissolved, its insidious shape lost in the ocean depths. Dagahra
stopped, believing it had won…until it felt its insides squirm.
Billions of microscopic organisms flooded Dagahra’s veins,
liquefying his atoms and then dissolving it.
Dagahra’s skeleton sunk to the bottom of the
On land, skyscrapers served as Orga’s witness.
The dying alien crawled toward the Bay, no longer wishing to fight.
SpaceGodzilla landed in front of him. Corona beams scourged Orga’s
frail body, dismembering its bones. In a valiant last stand, Orga
struggled to rise, only to fall after its ankles splintered beneath
the massive weight. It was born an abomination, a disgrace to its
great empire. Today, it’ll prove its worth by not giving up.
SpaceGodzilla rewarded Orga’s bravery by impaling its chest
with his tail. His tail served as a bridge for his cosmic energies
to cross. Orga’s insides were vaporized by electricity. SpaceGodzilla’s
tail lifted Orga’s fried corpse and chucked it aside. SpaceGodzilla
raised his head to the heavens, roaring in triumph.
A dark mass rose out of Tokyo Bay. It stomped its
way to the heart of Tokyo. There it met SpaceGodzilla once more.
There were no roars of intimidation. There was only carnage. Destoroyah
spewed destructive energies out of its maw. A barrier of light appeared
in front of SpaceGodzilla, deflecting Destoroyah’s projectile.
Seethed with hatred, Destoroyah charged the cosmic saurian. It’ll
maul SpaceGodzilla the old fashion way. SpaceGodzilla fired his
corona beams, bombarding the nefarious monster. Destoroyah felt
its green blood spurt out of its grisly wounds, yet it did not delay
its stride. An emerald glow embroiled SpaceGodzilla’s shoulder
crystals. Green bolts shot out, entangling Destoroyah. SpaceGodzilla
elevated Destoroyah into the sky, before dropping it into a cloister
of building. Amidst the thick smoke, Destoroyah emerged. It flapped
its wings, propelling it through the air. SpaceGodzilla could not
stop the juggernaut from crashing into him. A helpless SpaceGodzilla
watched Destoroyah’s horn disappear in a blade of light.
SpaceGodzilla remembered it all to well.
Destoroyah bent down, hacking off one of SpaceGodzilla's
shoulder crystals. Half of his energy was gone. SpaceGodzilla cried
out, blasting Destoroyah’s face. Destoroyah empowered his
horn once more, aiming for SpaceGodzilla’s last shoulder crystal.
In desperation, SpaceGodzilla discharged a reddish aura, flaying
Destoroyah’s putrid hide. It was enough to break free. SpaceGodzilla
flew high above Tokyo Tower, summoning all of the energy he could.
Destoroyah’s livid eyes glowered at the cosmic titan. What
power SpaceGodzilla conjured mattered little for it’ll meet
death this night. SpaceGodzilla transformed his backside into a
spiky, crystal shell. In a true display of power, SpaceGodzilla
fired three glowing spheres of light.
All three spheres struck Destoroyah, engulfing the
titanic beast in a blinding explosion. Crystals burst out of Destoroyah’s
skin, sapping it of its strength. Destoroyah hissed in irritation.
It could no longer move. Most of its body had been vaporized. SpaceGodzilla
landed close by, knowing the battle had been won. Through its crystal
prison, Destoroyah scowled at its opponent. It may have lost the
battle, but its escape is inevitable. Indeed, there will come a
time when Destoroyah breaks free of its shackles.
Until then, the fruits of victory belong to SpaceGodzilla.
