While exploring Adona Island, a group of Japanese scientists discover a prehistoric egg. The group then proceed to move the spherical object back to their camp for further study. Come night fall, the group is attacked by giant pteranodon called Rodan. The creature fiercely protects the egg, until Godzilla arrives and the two titans engage in combat. The humans take full advantage of the misplaced attention and runaway with the prize via a helicopter. The relic embryo is then brought to an observation laboratory where it is learned that the object reacts with a special sound, emitted from the mentally enhanced children under the guidance of Miki Saegusa. The egg hatches upon hearing the melody and reveals, to a most astonished young woman, a baby Godzilla. The animal immediately takes a fond attraction to the girl and stays close to her side. However, no sooner does the Baby emerge from the egg, that Godzilla is sighted on the Japanese mainland, closing in on Baby Godzilla's location. After a brief fight with Mechagodzilla, the nuclear giant is nearly on top of the building housing the smaller Godzilla, until he turns around and heads back out to sea. It's realized that the infant had a telepathic link to Godzilla and Rodan.

Later, the military takes a few valuable x-rays of the dinosaur, and discovers that a second brain, located in the hip level, adorned the monster's anatomy. It's then believed that if Mechagodzilla could hit that organic muscle, the machine could paralyze Godzilla and kill the beast once and for all. The Japanese government then sets out with plan to use the baby to lure Godzilla into a trap. The plan is agreed upon, despite opposition from some, and the baby is placed into transit via a helicopter. However, the recently revived Rodan arrives to free Baby Godzilla. The giant pteranodon destroys the helicopter and carrys off the canister containing the infant Godzilla.

With their current plan in ruins, G-Force proceeds into action and dispatches Mechagodzilla and Garuda to intercept Rodan. Mechagodzilla is successful in luring Rodan away from the canister, and nearly kills the ancient bird. However, Godzilla arrives ready to do battle with his mechanical clone. After a fierce battle, Mechagodzilla appears to have finally gained the upper hand and destroys Godzilla's second brain, sending the towering giant crashing to the ground. With the death of the beast at hand, Baby Godzilla breaks free from the canister to utter a cry for help, which is answered by the dying Rodan. The saurian of the skies then flies to collapse on Godzilla. The giant pteranodon then gives its life force to the nuclear giant, reviving the creature. The leviathan stood once more, and destroyed the machine, for good. With Mechagodzilla gone, Baby Godzilla goes to Godzilla as the pair swim off into the sea.

Time passes as the once infant Godzilla now begins to grow. No longer known as baby, the monster is dubbed Little Godzilla.

Hearing Little Godzilla's cries, the King of the Monster arrives to protect him. Godzilla wages a battle with his space born clone, but is soon overpowered. This leaves the sage scaled baby to feel the wrath of the fanged space monster. Though, SpaceGodzilla did not kill the child, he instead entrapped it in a crystal prison, before disembarking. Mocking Godzilla with the entrapment of his own offspring.

It took the death of the SpaceGodzilla, from the combined might of Godzilla and Moguera, to shatter the crystal tomb. With the crystals gone, the bewildered Little Godzilla was able to roam free again.

Godzilla Junior
Height: 40 meters
Mass: 15,000 tons
  Powers/Weapons: Can fire an Atomic Ray from its mouth; super regenerative power; able to communicate with Godzilla and Rodan telepathically
First Appearance: Godzilla vs. Destoroyah (1995)
Series:  Heisei  


After the death of the crystal demon, SpaceGodzilla, Godzilla returned to Birth Island. However, something was seriously wrong. Either from the overwhelming power of Rodan's life-force or a natural occurring reaction, Godzilla was sent into a nuclear meltdown. His swarming radiation ignited the few uranium deposits on the island, decimating the tropical island. However, Little Godzilla fed off the extreme levels of radiation and grew to a new form, becoming Godzilla Junior.

The animal, though, still possessed its telepathic link with Miki, which was used to lure the germinating monster to Japan. With Godzilla calculated to be in tow, it was hoped that by bringing his offspring to Japan the King of the Monsters would follow. Japan hoped Godzilla would do battle with a new creature, a monster dubbed Destoroyah whose origin lies in the Oxygen Destroyer that killed the original Godzilla more than forty years prior. The nation hopes that the monsters might decimate each other, avoiding the risk of Godzilla going into meltdown and killing Destoroyah. Before Godzilla can arrive, though, Junior is forced to do battle with Destoroyah on his own. Fighting off the ancient evil, Junior suffers a severe blow to his chest before he blasts the creature with his ray at close range. This sends the monster plummeting into a nearby factory where it is engulfed in flames.

The victory, however, was short-lived. Rising from the ashes of its hellish womb, Destoroyah, in his final form, lashed back. The creature descended into the sky and grabbed Godzilla's son by the neck, after toppling the King of the Monsters with his ray. In an act of pure evil, Destoroyah dropped the infant Godzilla, sending the young monster plummeting to the ground, several thousand feet below. The sudden attack managed to, sadly, kill the child monster. Although the creature would not stay dead for long...
