Above Monster Island, the sky was gray. The
other monsters, Anguirus, Baragon, and even the mighty Godzilla
had left this land during the so-called war between the worlds.
One, however, had stayed behind. Bluish legs smashed through
the forest canopy as he sought his favorite meal: Kamacuras,
but even his favorite bug had seemingly gone extinct in this
rough time. It had been almost three days since he last ate
and Gorosaurus was on the hunt, but he couldn’t find hide
nor hair of any suitable meal. At last, after six hours, noise
caught his ear…
He slowly lowered his triangular head and softly
crawled forward. He peered over the green tops of dozens of
palm trees and his round, pure black eyes fixated on a small
deer grazing. Somehow, miraculously, the kaiju wasn’t
spotted by its food. When it moved forward, lifting its large
feet up and lowering it, the deer’s head looked up and
spotted the drooling dinosaur.
In a heartbeat the deer took off, vanishing into
the trees. In an explosion of dust and trees, Gorosaurus charged.
In less than ten seconds he had cleared an entire portion of
the jungle, ripping up trees and the ground for the escaped
deer. The dinosaur finally stopped and lowered its head, sighing
with a deep sound.
A slow hour passed and the sun was starting to
set, darkening the gray sky. Small trickles of rain began to
fall, and as Gorosaurus moved back toward the beach, a shine
in the sky made him look over. Confused, the dinosaur looked
over his shoulder just to make sure the sun was where it was
a few moments ago.
Narrowing his eyes, the dinosaur looked forward
again. It was clear now that it wasn’t natural. The color
was simply its reflective-mirror like surface. It was perfectly
round with three triangular spikes latched onto the bottom…
Inside the Xillien Mother Ship, the leather-dressed,
self-styled leader sneered at the sight of the blue goliath.
“So this is Gorosaurus, huh?” He half-laughed, obviously
not impressed as the beast’s tail patted the ground.
From behind the pale alien, an old, bald one
emerged. “There is a peaceful-“
“NO!” The warlord declared, whipping
out his laser pistol and shooting his superior in the skull.
Just as the dead body of the former president of the Xillien
race flopped on the ground, the youngster spun around. “Monster
X! Get it!”
From beneath the ship, a square opening appeared.
What emerged was obscured by mist, but the dark figure splashed
into the water! Gorosaurus stood upright and tilted his fanged
head as the Xillien ship slowly rotated in the sky.
“Now you overgrown gecko, you will feel
Gorosaurus’ eyes followed the water where
the object had landed. He stepped back, growling as the sand
turned into clouds beneath his huge feet. He began to dig trenches
as a dark, humanoid shape appeared mere feet under the water.
After over a minute, the water rose up and split apart. The
dinosaur let out a deep, thunderous roar as Monster X, the skeletal
warrior from the skies, let mist drift from his silent maw.
The two monsters, as opposite as opposite could
be, stood their ground. In the distance, the clouds were growing
even more violent, showering parts of the island with rain.
When thunder boomed over the sky, Gorosaurus roared again and
Monster X wasted no time and split his arms to
the side. His six red orbs of eyes flashed with golden bliss
as bolts of energy leaped forth. The six bolts merged into two
large ones and whipped across the ground before smacking into
Gorosaurus’ legs! The dinosaur fell to a stop, crying
aloud as steam drifted up.
Monster X let out a demonic chuckle as he walked
forward, more energy surging and ringing in his eyes. The alien
began to close the distance before firing again, ripping his
powerful gravity bolts across the saurian’s scaly back.
When the beams struck, a ball of fire rose up.
Through the smoke and flames, Gorosaurus emerged
charging. Monster X was caught off guard and braced himself
as the dinosaur splashed through the ankle-deep water and collided
with him. The dinosaur’s jaws came down, clamping tightly
on the alien beast’s wrist. X let out a whine and struggled,
bringing his other arm up and dealing multiple blows to Gorosaurus’
The two struggled in the water as the dinosaur’s
razor-sharp teeth began to rip into X’s black fresh. A
strange, vile fluid began to drip into the water, but still
Gorosaurus refused to release him. After several blows to the
skull, the dinosaur twisted his body, but didn’t release,
pulling Monster X forward before spinning and releasing. With
a moan, Monster X was sent hurtling to the beach. He landed
with a blow, his armored skull bouncing off the sand.
The dinosaur shook his blood-covered jaws and
began to march forward. Monster X rolled over on, more beams
of golden energy launching at the titan. Several explosions
expanded from the dinosaur’s chest, making the giant scream
in both pain and rage. As Gorosaurus fell to his knees, flakes
of burnt flesh falling from his blue chest, Monster X stood
Before Gorosaurus could stand up, the alien charged
forward. Mid-way through he leaped into the air and began to
spin. Pointing his horns at the dinosaur, Monster X crashed
into his damaged chest, stabbing the boney spear-like horns
into Gorosaurus’ chest. The dinosaur screamed in pain
as streams of red began to pour out as Monster X pulled himself
out and spun around. His forked tail smacked into his snout,
shattering several teeth and almost making Gorosaurus fall into
The alien chuckled again, but the fiend soon
had to react quickly. Faster than Monster X could tell, the
dinosaur had leaned back on his tail. The sea literally exploded
into a wall of water as he lashed out with his most devastating
attack: the kangaroo kick! The alien tried to jump back, but
could only lessen the damage. The powerful blow smashed into
his chest, knocking every breath of air out of his body.
Like a rocket, Monster X was sent hurtling back.
The demon crashed back first, limbs flailing as his breathing
became harsh. Gorosaurus began to move forward, shaking his
head as Monster X began to rise, keeping a firm arm across his
Monster X groaned and extended his arms, more
beams of gold bliss launching at the approaching prehistoric
terror. The dinosaur quickly reacted, ducking down, having learned
of the lethality of the beams the hard away. The arching bolts
crashed into the water, instantly turning to steam and making
the water bubble. Growling at this, the alien lowered his arms
and quickly tried to charge again…
Gorosaurus let out a thunderous roar and charged
The two were less than a dozen yards away when
Gorosaurus quickly stopped and leaned back on his tail. The
X didn’t have time to escape again as the inertia from
both of them carried them forward a ways still. Like a professional
baseball player striking a ball, Gorosaurus’ feet smashed
straight into Monster X’s skull.
It took less than a second, but for the Xillien
Leader watching, it lasted a lifetime. The kick virtually snapped
the spine of Monster X, making the boney plates shatter so the
spine could pop out. The armor on the head split like an egg
and the eyes on its face ripped out from their sockets…
When Gorosaurus landed on his feet, Monster X
laid a hundred yards away motionless. The blood red eyes on
his shoulders were now black. His skull was caved in and indented
with the impact area virtually shattered, exposing his brain.
The head was pushed down as if a giant hammer pounded the skull
into the shoulder! The blue dinosaur beat the ground with his
tail and snorted as he smelt his own burnt flesh.
With a snarl he looked down at his vanquished
enemy and slowly turned, looking back at the Xillien ship. Inside,
it was if the dinosaur was staring directly at him. And like
a spoiled child the leader jumped up and down… “DAMN
IT! DAMN IT! DAMN IT!”
