Seems like a pretty quick turnover rate, especially if the elder in Sea Monster isn't the same as the offspring from vs. Mothra/GTTHM...
I always took it as such: Mothra Larva -> Adult (Mothra
). That Adult is the same adult in Mothra vs. Godzilla
. The surviving Larva (fairies say the other died) is in Ghidorah
. It has matured to an Adult for Sea Monster
. DAM is set in 1999, which is some 30ish years later than all of these so it's an entirely different Mothra generation.
I would think the same. But if the offspring are male and the adult is a she in Sea Monster, we'd be potentially looking at another.
Unless, of course, Mothra becomes female in the process of entering imago form (as some animals do change in nature); it would make sense for perpetuation issues, since the Mothra species is so small, if the adult always transitions to a fertile (perhaps self-fertilized during the cocooned transition process; essentially, Imago emerges pregnant) female that lays an egg, hence perpetuating the species only with a single member.
Y'know, unless the new eggs just form out of glowing sparkles like in the ROM trilogy.
It’s part of my secret plan to create a fifth column in the US, pre-emoting our glorious conquest and the creation of the Canadian Empire, upon which the sun will consistently set after less than eight hours of daylight.
