Description

Moving through the Amazon like a biblical plague, the monstrous termites threatened to destroy the entire rainforest. H.E.A.T. was called in and quickly confronted by one of the huge soldiers. Godzilla later arrived to battle the insects, but the King of the Monsters was swarmed. Countless termites crawled onto his body, using sharp mandibles to bite at his flesh. With no other option, Godzilla fled with the angry army of termites following.

Due to the intervention of Godzilla, H.E.A.T. managed to escape and Craven devised a plan to use high frequency sound waves to turn the colony on itself. The plan worked and as the group ventured inside the nest, the soldiers and worker termites began to battle. Despite the plan going accordingly, several soldiers still took chase and tried attacking the humans. Thankfully, Godzilla intervened once again. The beast broke open the nest to save his adopted parent and destroy the insects. When several underground bombs detonated, the insects were finally destroyed once and for all and their entire nest was obliterated in a colossal sea of fire.

Description

Deep within the heart of the Amazon, a colony of termites became mutated and gigantic in size. The termites ripped through the rainforest at an alarming rate, threatening to destroy the entire Amazon basin in a matter of weeks. When the H.E.A.T. team arrived, they quickly uncovered the truth and devised a plan to rid the world of the insectoid threat. With Craven’s technology, they began to use high frequency sound waves to drive the insects crazy.

Within the heart of the subterranean lair, the workers began to attack the soldiers and vice versa. Total anarchy broke out in the nest while the humans fled, aided by Godzilla. To make sure the insects would never return, powerful explosives were detonated across the nest, destroying every last mutant termite.
