Details
According to legend in Okinawa: when a black mountain appears above the clouds, a monster will appear to destroy the earth. The prophecy is discovered on a statue, recently uncovered and said to belong to the protector King Caesar. The prophecy's importance is quickly discovered, though, when Godzilla emerges after a black mountain visage is seen in the clouds. As Anguirus appears not long afterwards, Godzilla attacks and defeats him, causing confusion in onlookers for assaulting his close ally. The truth is shortly uncovered as a second, and the true, Godzilla emerges to reveal an alien invasion using a mechanical Godzilla.
