Amidst the 20th century, Godzilla, the symbol
of humankind's ignorance, emerged to terrorize
the world yet again. The Japanese Self Defense
Force lured Godzilla to Antarctica, where the
military attacked the abomination. Tanks and maser
cannons fired with futility on the mountain of
flesh. Godzilla destroyed all of his opposition,
laying to waste mankind's hopes of annihilating
this archfiend. However, humankind wasn't down
for the count! Gotengo, a massive aerial battleship,
appeared and dueled with the nuclear menace. Gotengo
put up a brilliant offensive, but Godzilla was
ultimately victorious, or so it seemed... A tremor
shook the icy terrain, pulling Godzilla into the
pit of the frozen continent. Gotengo took advantage
of this wonderful situation, and it fired its
missiles at a mountain behind Godzilla. The icy
cliffs began to topple and bury the beast. The
wretched reptile was frozen, and his reign of
terror was over.
Forty years later, a multitude of monsters began
to attack the world's largest cities. Millions
were killed in the terrible ambush. Suddenly,
friends from above, an alien race called the Xiliens,
appeared on Earth. In a single stroke, the monsters
that were attacking Earth suddenly vanished at
the Xiliens' hands, but the beings possessed a
terrible secret agenda. Once their plot for world
domination was uncovered, the Xiliens once again
released their monsters on the world's populous.
It was determined that the only possible method
by which to save the planet would be to release
the terror that slept peacefully in its frozen
tomb to the South: Godzilla. The Gotengo was sent
to Antarctica to release nuclear menace, but little
did they know that a most fierce monster was trailing them.
Gigan, that detestable space cyborg, attacked
the Gotengo when it arrived in Antarctica. Luckily,
the powerful aircraft managed to destroy the base
that had held Godzilla captive for so many years.
The king of the monsters, seething with a fiery
passion for revenge, emerged. The cybernetic horror
fired his cluster beam at the monster. Taking
advantage of his preliminary strike, Gigan fired
his cables at Godzilla and began to reel him in
toward his razor-sharp buzz saw! Unfazed by his
apparent doom, Godzilla fired his thermonuclear
ray, rending Gigan's head from his shoulders.
Godzilla roared in victory, as his foe lay motionless
on the icy desert. Godzilla began to leave the
site of Gigan's defeat, when the monster
noticed Gotengo. It began to follow the craft,
firing his atomic ray at his old adversary. Godzilla
thought he was still fighting the battle he had
waged with Gotengo before he was frozen, unaware
of the extreme time lapse. Using this fact to
an advantage, the Gotengo began to fly toward
Tokyo. If Godzilla could be led to the Xiliens, surely he could destroy them.
Along the way to Tokyo, Godzilla was faced with
many enemy monsters under the control of the aliens.
First, Godzilla battled the giant lizard Zilla
in Sydney, Australia. This monster was easily
defeated when it was sent crashing into the Sydney
Opera House. Godzilla's deadly nuclear ray
followed and the monster was set ablaze. In New
Guinea, Godzilla was forced to do battle with
the seismic spider Kumonga. The arachnid fired
its webbing at his reptilian rival, but Godzilla
managed to grab hold to a strand. Since the web
that Godzilla held was still attached to the spider,
he managed to fling Kumonga thousands of miles
away. In Japan, Godzilla fought Kamacuras, the
giant praying mantis. Ultimately, Godzilla managed
to throw it into a large electrical conductor,
killing the beast. Despite every fray that came
the monster's way, it lost no steam as Godzilla
continued to follow the Gotengo to its destiny in Tokyo.
Godzilla soon found himself facing his greatest
challenge yet, though. He arrived in Mt. Fuji,
where he faced three monsters simultaneously:
Rodan, Anguirus, and King Caesar. The four titans
charged at one another, but Godzilla quickly gained
the upper hand. Crushing Anguirus' head beneath
his foot, the nuclear menace leapt away as Rodan
and King Caesar slammed into each other while
missing their mark. The battle waged on, as Godzilla
managed to slam his tail into Anguirus, sending
him on a collision course with Rodan, causing
the terrible pterosaur to be sent crashing into
the ground. King Caesar retaliated, kicking Anguirus
back to Godzilla like a soccer ball! Godzilla
avoided the attack, though, and Anguirus was sent
toppling onto Rodan. King Caesar's ears
stood straight into the air, for its anger was
swelling to a boiling point. The mammalian monster
charged, but Godzilla grabbed the furry colossus
and threw him into a hill, causing him to topple
onto Anguirus and Rodan. With the trio of titans
defeated, Godzilla roared in victory as it continued to follow the Gotengo.
After Gotengo breached the shell of the Xilien
Mothership, Godzilla arose from the depths of
Tokyo Bay. The monster made short work of Ebirah
and Hedorah as it moved deeper into the city.
Meanwhile, the aliens' most powerful weapon,
the asteroid called Gorath, had finally breached
the Earth's atmosphere. Godzilla fired his
breath at the incoming meteor, and the resulting
explosion destroyed Tokyo, leaving a crater where
the once magnificent metropolis stood.
From within the meteor, a new monster arose.
Monster X, as the creature was known, began to
battle Godzilla. As they exchanged blows, Mothra
appeared! She arrived to assist in the alien race's
defeat, but the Xiliens sent a repaired Gigan
to do away with the guardian. Gigan sliced Mothra's
wing and sent the mammoth moth crashing to the
ground. With Mothra seemingly defeated, Gigan
proceeded to assist Monster X in Godzilla's annihilation.
Mothra, however, rose from the ground and continued
to battle with Gigan. The sadistic cyborg sent
its spinning razor disks to destroy Mothra, but
she reflected them back to their source. The soaring
blades decapitated Gigan once more, shortly after
his cluster beam set Mothra aflame. The blazing
arthropod flew past the decapitated Gigan, causing
the demon to explode in a furious ball of fire.
Meanwhile, Godzilla pinned Monster X to the ground,
assaulting him with powerful physical blows. Godzilla
and Monster X were now battling in a city of flames.
They both fired their energy attacks at each other,
and this resulted in a massive explosion. As Godzilla
slowly rose to his feet, Monster X revealed his
true form. He was, in fact, the three-headed space
dragon known as Keizer Ghidorah! The malignant
monster began to drag Godzilla across the entire
city with his gravity beams. Following this terrible
onslaught, Keizer Ghidorah began to drain the
life force out of Godzilla. However, the Gotengo
intervened, and began to assist Godzilla. Using
a special energy procured from the Xiliens called
"Keizer", Gotengo infused Godzilla with
a new power. The revitalized reptile used his
newfound strength to destroy two of his opponent's
heads. He tossed Keizer Ghidorah into the sky
and fired his hyper spiral ray, causing the three-headed
demon to erupt in a massive explosion. Godzilla roared in victory!
Godzilla noticed Gotengo, and downed his old
enemy with his thermonuclear ray. He was about
to finish the aerial battleship once and for all,
when an old friend stepped between them. It was
Godzilla's son Minilla, and he pleaded with his
father to spare the ship. Godzilla listened to
his son, and they journeyed out into the sea.
Minilla fired an atomic ray into the distance;
a symbol that Godzilla's legacy would never end.
Godzilla let out one final roar, for his trials
and tribulations had finally ended.
