Match 14: Mothra and Angurius vs DesiGhidorah
Mothra soared over the dense forest, observing the numerous dead trees and black soil that lay before her. She knew which demon was responsible for this, one her species had fought before. Suddenly, a loud elephant-like roar echoed throughout the dead forest. Knowing who this was, Mothra let out a chirp before flapping her mighty wings.
Desighidorah let out another roar of content as he syphoned more of Earth’s life force; soon nothing would be strong enough to stand in his way. He knew of course that wretched Mothra would attempt to foil his plans, but it was too late, he was far too powerful.
Of course, he was not immune to pain.
A pair of twin laser flew through the air before lacing up the back side of Desighidorah’s back and necks, creating a shower of sparks. Desighidorah roared out in pain before turning around, only to have multiple lightning bolts strike his faces, causing him to recoil. Managing to open his eyes, he saw none other than the queen of monsters herself hovering in front of him.
Mothra let out a chirp of anger before flapping her multi-colored wings, creating gusts of wind, pushing Desighidorah backwards. Letting loose his own roar, Desighidorah’s three heads looked up and shot two orbs of molten lava, striking Mothra’s wings, smoke rising where they struck.
Mothra chirped out in pain, but continued her assault and flapped her wings harder, tearing up trees and creating a sand storm. Desighidorah roared out as he turned away, the dust burning his eyes. He struggled to stay in one spot as the winds picked up even more, pushing him farther back. At one point he nearly lost his footing, only raising his anger levels.
Desighidorah let out a trumpeting shriek that struck Mothra’s heart like a dagger of fear. She slowed down long enough that Desighidorah was able to spread his own wings and take to the skies. Mothra chirped out in pain as a barrage of molten lava struck her backside, burning her badly. Flapping her mighty wings, Mothra took off into the blood red sky, Desighidorah in pursuit.
Once again, Mothra felt her fur and flesh singe as a stream of flames poured from the middle head, getting low moans of agony from Mothra. Changing her tactics, Mothra made a sharp 180 degree turn and slammed right into the foul dragon, stunning him long enough that she was able to latch onto his back. Pushing her sharp feet right into Desighidorah’s hard, craggy armor, Mothra unleashed volts of electricity into the dragon’s body, causing him to roar out in more anger than pain. Unfortunately, Mothra received a nasty surprise; Desighidorah’s entire body crackled with electricity before blasting the poor goddess off of him, her shrieks of agony echoing as she plummeted to the ground.
A loud thud rumbled through the air as Mothra’s mass struck the Earth, a large crater forming where she lay, motionless. A few meters away, Desighidorah landed, his feet cracking the land and shattering the dead trees like feeble toothpicks. Unleashing his trumpet-like roar, Desighidorah walked over, and prepared to finish off the pathetic insect. Just as he had predicted, Mothra was no match, he was far too strong for her.
However, no one can predict everything.
Desighidorah gasped and stumbled as the ground beneath him literally rose upwards, tossing the unsuspecting space demon off. Desighidorah stumble before falling over as a new adversary joined the fray.
Angurius let out his loud roar, daring Desighidorah to get up and fight.
Desighidorah stood up and stared at this new creature; the first thing that caught his eye was Angurius’ spiked carapace. The spikes seemed to taunt Desighidorah, the thought of them puncturing his armor and flesh caused the demon to shudder.
Before Desighidorah could ponder anymore, Angurius lunged, his mouth opening to reveal his long, sharp fangs. Thinking fast, Desighidorah brought back his three heads and swung, knocking the quadrupled saurian backwards. Looking over at the still motionless Mothra, Desighidorah decided that she could wait; he would finish this creature off first.
Rearing backwards, Desighidorah unleashed multiple bolts of magma at Angurius, causing cries of pain and dust to both fill the air. But Desighidorah wouldn’t stop there; he wanted this sad excuse of a life form to suffer. Pushing off from the ground on his front legs, Desighidorah immediately fell back downwards, a fissure erupting where his feet had landed, with enormous towers of flames pouring out as it split even further. If Desighidorah could, he would’ve smirked; once the flames had reached Angurius, his cries died, along with the flames.
Once the dust settled, Desighidorah advanced, and was shocked to find that there was no trace of Angurius – the pyre road must have completely obliterated him! Desighidorah had no idea that the attack contained that much power, it had never caused this much damage. The dragon quickly lost interest however, and turned back to Mothra, what was done was done. Taking a step forward, Desighidorah shrieked out in surprise as the ground beneath suddenly gave way, his entire front leg buried beneath the dirt and rocks.
Looking up, he witnessed the ground begin to rise, revealing none other than Angurius himself. Shaking off the rubble, the badly burnt Angurius wasted no time and jumped at Desighidorah, his mass causing the dragon to be pushed backwards. Lowering his head down, Angurius swiftly brought it back up and pierced Desighidorah’s armor with his nose horn. Roaring out in pain, Desighidorah tried to back away, only for Angurius to respond by twisting and pushing his horn in even deeper.
Having enough, Desighidorah’s middle head looked down and spewed flames. Angurius tried to continue his assault, but eventually gave in and backed away. Spreading his blood colored wings, Desighidorah took to the air, knocking Angurius backwards, needing to cooperate.
Pulling himself back up, Angurius roared at his opponent as he flew up higher and higher. Turning around, Angurius headed towards Mothra; he had sensed Desighidorah’s presence and knew Mothra would try to fight him alone. He had swum from Monster Island to Japan, and borrowed underground to avoid detection.
Nudging Mothra, the goddess’ eyes finally began to glow, signifying her awake. Spotting Angurius, she let out a weak chirp, which was quickly drowned out by Desighidorah’s roar. Looking up, both kaiju spotted multiple bolts of magma descending towards them. Closing his eyes, Angurius turned away, only to quickly discover the attacks had dissipated before reaching their desired targets. Opening his eyes, Angurius discovered Mothra hovering before him, her golden scales filling the air, having caused the attacks to detonate.
Desighidorah shrieked out in annoyance; one opponent at a time was fine, but this was annoying. With all the time wasted on these two, he could have syphoned an entire forest! Desighidorah roared again as he was struck by twin golden beams from Mothra, and quickly descended towards her. Mothra chirped out at Angurius before the two sped the sides, causing Desighidorah to crash into the Earth. Turning around, Angurius jumped at the dragon, landing on his back.
Shaking wildly, Angurius caused Desighidorah to momentarily lose his balance and stumble around before finally getting forced off from electrocution. Falling off, Angurius immediately began to borrow, only for two of Desighidorah’s heads to clamp down on his hind legs, their saliva burning his flesh. Angurius cried out in pain and dismay, desperately trying to free himself. The middle head, however, had other plans and began to spew flames all over the poor creature’s body.
The torrent of flames came to a sudden halt as Mothra struck it from behind, multiple bones in the neck cracking on impact. The other two heads quickly let go and joined the middle one in crying out in pain as Mothra grabbed her ally and carried him away a good distance before being struck again by the magma bolts.
Crashing to the ground, Mothra knew what had to be down; Desighidorah was far too strong by now, every inch of his body virtually impenetrable.
Except for his necks.
Chirping towards Angurius, Mothra told him what to do. Nodding, Angurius rushed towards the Dragon at full speed, slamming into his chest and stunning him. Opening his maw, Angurius clamped down on the dragon’s middle neck and pulled. It was not enough, and only managed to anger Desighidorah. Turning towards him, Desighidorah’s other two head spewed countless magma at him, only to be cut short by the arrival of Mothra.
The mighty goddess summoned the rest of her strength and flapped her wings, causing her golden glowing scales to fall upon the demon, its attack reflected back at him. His opponent occupied, Angurius began to tug even harder, the head shrieking out in pain before spewing out scorching flames, burning Angurius’ underbelly. Angurius could merely grunt before resuming his assault. It still wasn’t enough!
Spotting her friend’s dilemma, Mothra gave up on her current attack and latched onto Desighidorah’s neck. Flapping her wings faster than ever, Mothra and Angurius pulled and jerked, harder and harder, desperately trying to with stand the attacks of the other two heads, agony rising with each direct hit. But the two would not give up, their perseverance was so great, they swore they would die trying to kill this fiend.
Angurius and Mothra both fell forward, alongside the middle head of Desighidorah. The two were far too dazed from exhaustion to even look at their now two headed opponent; it was crying out, the sound echoing for miles, with dark blood gushing out of the stump where the third head used to be.
Regaining her wits, Mothra spotted her opening and took it; taking to the air once more, Mothra’s entire body began to glow and off-orange color, a trail of light following closely behind. Going right above Desighidorah, the queen of monsters circled the dragon, drawing an orange circle in midair, leaving Angurius in awe at its beauty.
By the time Desighidorah noticed, it was far too late; the giant replica of Mothra’s symbol came down full force, striking Desighidorah. For the first time ever, Desighidorah cried out for mercy, begging for it to stop. But it was too late; it felt as though millions of tons of pressure were pushing down on his body, along with the burning effect cracking and destroying his armor. The pressure soon became too much and…
Angurius looked away as Desighidorah’s blood and insides exploded everywhere, turning everything red from the blood, with his internal organs flying everywhere, crushing trees alike. Looking back, he saw nothing more than the now hollowed out husk of Desighidorah. The dragon of death was no more, huge holes all over his corpse, most feature undistinguishable.
Slowly landing, Mothra let out a chirp of happiness; her ancient enemy had finally fallen to death itself. She was quite grateful Angurius had arrived to help her, it was perfect timing. Having battled a stray Gyaos only two or three weeks ago in Tokyo, her body was still injured and was weak.
Chirping out in gratitude to Angurius, the two monsters scanned the area; it would take hundreds of years for everything to grow back to its natural beauty. Or at least alone. Mothra would see if the Elias could do anything to help the vegetation grow back, they had done it on her island before, why not here?
Nudging Mothra, Angurius signified it was time they leave and travel back to their respective homes. Letting out one last roar of victory each, the two kaiju turned and headed towards the distant ocean, Angurius ready to return home his friends, and Mothra, ready to greet her two children, each one grateful for each other.
Winners: Mothra and Angurius
