Description

After a volcanic eruption on Santa Marta released radioactive lava on the tropical island, the ecosystem was drastically mutated. Monstrous bees and vines now flourished. With nothing to oppose them, the Queen and her brood transformed the island’s most luxurious resort into a massive hive. However, outsiders were destined to stumble upon the site.

Disturbed from her slumber by H.E.A.T., she soon found herself faced with Godzilla and engaged him in combat. The two monsters battled across the island as its volcano began to erupt, eventually plummeting both warring titans into a deep crevasse that began to fill up with lava. Both creatures nearly fell into the liquid magma, but as the Queen Bee tried to escape into a tunnel in the wall of the crevasse, Godzilla blasted the tunnel opening with his atomic ray, causing it to collapse and bury the insect under thousands of tons of dirt and rock, and presumably lava as well. It was assumed the monstrous insect was slain, but it was not.

The queen found herself enslaved by the Leviathan aliens. Once the invaders amassed an army of mutated monsters, she was dispatched to help destroy humanity. She aided El Gusano in obliterating Moscow and engaged the Russian air force in a fierce dog fight. However, time was on the Earth’s side and H.E.A.T. was able to destroy the alien's monster control device on Site Omega. Freed of her bondage, the bee sought vengeance and began to attack the alien fleet. With her machine gun-like stingers, she brought down several fighters before being out maneuvered and shot down by the aliens, this time put down for good, being yet another casualty of this war of the worlds.


Powers / Weapons
Flight

Flight

Just like ordinary bees, the Queen Bee is capable of flight.

   
Stinger

Stinger

The Queen Bee is armed with a huge stinger on the tip of her abdomen. Unlike her smaller stingers, she is unable to launch this one. Instead, she can use it to directly stab and injure her opponents.

   
Thorax stinger launch

Thorax stinger launch

While the queen is unable to fire her largest of stinger, she is equipped with numerous, smaller stingers along her abdomen. These stingers can be fired in rapid succession, almost like a machine gun, to hit a target over and over.

   
Drone summon

Drone summon

With a loud shriek, the Queen Bee can beckon additional Mutant Bees as reinforcements. As the giant bees all share a hive mind with their queen, they are rarely far from her side when she is active.


Background and Trivia
  • In Godzilla 1954-1999 Super Complete Works (ISBN 4091014704), its Japanese name is listed as simply being "Giant Bee" (巨大ミツバチ - Kyodai Mitsubachi).
  • Appears as a boss monster in the 1999 Game Boy Color game, Godzilla: The Series. Unlike her animated counterpart, the Queen Bee in the video game is capable of shooting her primary stinger twice successively. In addition to summoning drones to attack Godzilla, she can also flutter her wings at high velocity to create a supersonic projectile.
