The ocean was overflowing on that fearful night
in 1999. As a typhoon ravaged the Bosko Peninsula,
a dark shadow rose above the coast of Tateyama.
It was a monster, a species of dinosaur that had
gone unseen in almost 45 years. Godzilla had arrived,
and the menacing monstrosity laid Tateyama to
waste. The Anti-Mega Losses Force was dispatched
to deal with the lumbering leviathan, but alas,
their maser cannons were ultimately of little
use. Following his rampage, Godzilla stealthily
returned to the depths of sea, where he would
go unseen for almost four years.
On one fateful day in 2003, that hateful horror
surfaced once more. As it marched into Tokyo,
it was met with a truly peculiar sight. Godzilla's
spitting image was cast in metal and wire; the
"Mechagodzilla" named Kiryu had been
released by the Japanese government to battle
with the nation's greatest threat. Missiles were
launched at the behemoth, to no avail. The robot's
maser cannons fired, but Godzilla merely stirred
in response to the strike. The barbaric beast
reared and roared into the sky, and something
odd occurred in Kiryu's body. The soul of the
1954 Godzilla was disturbed, for Kiryu was cast
from his bones. The modern, mechanized wonder
went berserk, as Godzilla returned to the sea.
Kiryu soon exhausted its power supply, and it
was heavily debated whether or not the potentially
dangerous machine should be redeployed.
Within days, Godzilla struck yet again. It decimated
the military forces that stood in its path, and,
despite the dangers, the Prime Minister had no
choice but to unleash Kiryu on the diabolical
demon yet again. As Godzilla continued to burn
in his fiery rage, Kiryu appeared on the scene
and knocked its enemy off his feet. The metal
monster began to release its arsenal on Godzilla,
like before, as the King of the Monsters stood
strong against his opponent. The ogreish animal
pounded Kiryu with physical blows and managed
to release his thermonuclear ray several times.
Despite it all, Kiryu finally gained the upper
hand when he sent his feral foe into a centrifugal
throw! As Kiryu prepared to fire its absolute
zero cannon, an ultimate weapon that could demolecularize
any target, Godzilla launched another atomic ray
at his robotic rival, causing Kiryu to miss his
target. The arctic ray completely annihilated
three buildings, as Kiryu, once the ultimate paradigm
of human ingenuity, was sent crashing powerless
into the ground. Godzilla turned his attention
away from his defeated foe, as he returned to
his citywide rampage.
As Godzilla crawled through the once bustling
metropolis, something strange occurred. The electricity
was cut from the Kanto region, and Tokyo was left
in complete darkness. The energy was being redirected
to Kiryu, for the mechanized dragon was being
re-energized! Kiryu rose from the streets and
launched itself at its gargantuan adversary. It
forced Godzilla's mouth shut with its hand, and
it readied its absolute zero cannon. The ultimate
weapon fired as the monsters flew into the bay,
and an enormous column of ice rose hundreds of
meters into the air. Though the chilling attack
was brutal, Godzilla escaped the terrible onslaught.
Kiryu, with no power reserves remaining, could
only stand motionless as Godzilla once again escaped
into the abyss of the cold, cerulean sea.
As Kiryu's repairs continued for the better part
of a year, Godzilla swam undetected in the ocean
depths, until one day when it came across a giant
sea turtle named Kamoebas. The shelled wonder
didn't stand a chance against the heartless horror.
After Godzilla inflicted three massive lacerations
to its neck, Kamoebas barely dragged itself ashore.
The death of Kamoebas was the first major sign
of Godzilla's imminent return, and the explosion
of a nuclear sub off the coast of Guam was the
second. Within days, Godzilla surfaced and began
to approach Tokyo. As it came ashore, it was met
with minor resistance in the form of maser cannons.
Godzilla set the advanced weaponry aflame, and
it began its march of destruction through the
city. The nuclear menace was attracted to the
bones that were built inside Kiryu; for it was
a tragic irony that the weapon Japan created to
destroy Godzilla was in fact luring the terrible
titan straight into the nation's capital!
Before Kiryu could be released to repel the baneful
beast, the setting sun dimmed for a moment. A
marvelous moth was majestically flying aloft,
for it was the guardian Mothra, who had been summoned
to defeat Godzilla. As Mothra began to thrash
the titanic tyrant, the Prime Minister ordered
Kiryu to remain on standby. Evening turned to
night, as Mothra clawed away at her enemy's skull.
Mothra lost one of her legs in the struggle, and
she began to release the scales from her wings.
Sadly, Mothra would not be able to stay airborne
very long after she lost her scales; she knew
she was going to die. As Mothra's state continued
to deteriorate, the Prime Minister decided that
the guardian monster needed assistance. He ordered
Kiryu's release, despite the fact that the machine
was still untested and lacked the absolute zero
Godzilla continued to struggle against Mothra,
and in the process, his swirling tunnel of searing
heat toppled Tokyo Tower. Shortly after this disastrous
event, the merciless beast proceeded to shoot
Mothra out of the sky with his wrathful ray. Before
Godzilla could inflict further injury, ammunition
began to strike the saurian savage. Kiryu had
arrived once more to do battle with its old foe.
The "Mechagodzilla" staged a full out
offensive against its enemy monster, and though
Godzilla was temporarily brought to the ground,
the beastly behemoth managed to disable Kiryu
with his breath. As he prepared to finish his
cybernetic clone, Mothra took the force of Godzilla's
heat ray. Kiryu rose to its feet once more, and
it continued the onslaught with a wide assortment
of weapons. It soon lost the upper hand, however,
when Godzilla immobilized the mechanized monster
by tripping and blasting Kiryu with his thermonuclear
As Godzilla again prepared to annihilate the
crippled cyborg, silk began to fall from the sky.
Mothra's two larval offspring had arrived to assist
their ailing mother, but they were soon sent into
a fierce rage when Godzilla destroyed their mother
in a blazing inferno. The cyan eyes of the angered
arthropods began to glow a deep magenta, swirling
with a desire for vengeance. These two new monsters
attempted to fight Godzilla, but their small size
and limited weaponry placed them at a grave disadvantage.
Luckily, Kiryu was finally repaired. It became
locked in battle with Godzilla once more, and
both monsters toppled into the Diet Building.
The mechanical wonder and its organic sibling
rose from the ruins, and Kiryu drilled his hand
into a severe wound on Godzilla's chest, a wound
that had been torn one year earlier with the Zero
Canon. Godzilla roared in pain! It stood like
a tree, gently swaying as it endured an intense
agony from the previous attack. The Mothra larvae
began to wrap Godzilla in a chrysalis of silk,
and the once unbeatable monster fell to the ground
in defeat. Godzilla's roars, however, disturbed
Kiryu, and it went berserk much as it did almost
one year ago. It restrained Godzilla and lifted
its subdued enemy into the sky. They soared over
the lapping waves and plummeted into the depths
of the Japan Trench. Kiryu was searching for rest,
and now the souls of the dead could finally rest
in peace. As the Mothra larvae returned to their
island, the world breathed a sigh of relief. Godzilla
was finally defeated...
All was not as it should be, however. Godzilla's
DNA, procured in November of 1999, was still in
the hands of the reckless scientists that created
Kiryu. The threat remained!
