It would be an interesting ret-con if they arrived in the post-Son of Godzilla gap; maybe even because word somehow spread that Godzilla had been neutralized (and a few years later, they found to their dismay that he actually hadn't- perhaps just as their observations were complete and they were gearing up to attack). They've been observing Godzilla and Earth the whole time- possibly even re-directed a Hedorah seed to Earth to try and take Godzilla out; but when their slow, careful plans got waylaid by the Hunter M Nebula Aliens, Seatopian attacks, and Garoga, they recognized that they could have a battle on their hands no matter who triumphed... thus, they created a champion that could fight off rival aliens by posing as the most feared defender of Earth (for psychological warfare, and to prevent the Earth forces from attacking him, too), or be used to take out said defender if he emerged triumphant.
Then they fortified, sat back, and waited for the rivals to sort themselves out one by one, building a network of contacts like Mafune, attracting the attention of interpol... until finally, the repeat-threat Gigan had been destroyed, the Zone Family had departed, and the board was clear of challengers; and at last it was time to make their move. Which just left one threat to attend to; the prophecy that their network of human contacts had recently uncovered. The last potential rival for domination of the Earth- once Godzilla himself was dealt with.

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.
The grace of God is a greater gift than we can truly fathom; undeserved mercy is a kindness humbling in its sheer scope.
