In secret, the Japanese government developed highly advanced technologies during the waning years of the Cold War. Among these military vehicles were the aerial battle-mech: the Super-X, and the ground-based beam weapon: the hyper laser cannon. When Godzilla attacked Tokyo in 1984, almost 30 years after his predecessor's initial strike, the JSDF finally put these weapons into commission, to help rid the nation of this terror. Meanwhile, an esteemed professor continued his work on a crude, yet highly effective mind-control device, a brilliant blueprint for what would be Godzilla's not-so-ultimate defeat...

As the Japanese government continued to allow Dr. Hayashida's experiment to run its course, four hyper laser cannons were dispatched to contend with the towering terror. The avian frequency device, used make Godzilla have conditioned response to the sound of chirping birds, lead the monster outside of Dr. Hayashida's lab. Those within the laboratory celebrated while unbeknownst to them, the lumbering leviathan slowly approached, and the piercing chirp of a concentrated beam collided with Godzilla. The curious creature turned to face this exotic weaponry, and in the process, damaged the building in which Dr. Hayashida was conducting his experiments. The beast was then quickly distracted by the mild challenge that the relatively diminutive hyper laser cannons posed...

The four tanks continued to unleash their powerful beams at Godzilla, but the monster barely reared at the searing strikes. The four devices, firing from separate angles, blasted Godzilla and managed to lure the monster away from the lab and to the business district. Fortunately, the ultimate weapon, the Super-X, had finally arrived to relieve the burden off of the ineffective beam cannons. It was certain that this new weapon would be the device that would succeed where so many others failed. The hyper laser cannons bid a silent retreat.
