Kaiju War Chronicles (K.W.C.)
Match 15:
By: Thomas Singleton

A pervasion of wind blew gently against the shores of Monster Island. Fields of lush, vigorous trees occupied the majority of the island's terrain. At the apex of the island, buried beneath thousands of tons of rock and soil, the world's most sophisticated center of technology monitored the island's monstrous inhabitants. On tiny screens, scientists observed the magnificent, yet terrifying creatures known as kaiju. Despite years of working at the island, it was still a mystery to its employees on why the destructive, city-leveling kaiju conveyed a sense of wonder and fear. Recently, an alarm informed all of the employees that an emergency was underway. From the depths of Hell, the demonic anomaly, Kumasogami, arrived to eradicate all life on the planet. Before the humans could contact the JSDF to dispatch Kiryu or the United Nations robot, MechaGodzilla, to assist them in dealing with this crisis, one of the island's occupants arrived to deal with the threat: Anguirus.

The armored-saurian proved triumphant and forced Kumasogami to succumb to its hellish domain.

Since then, silence had once again returned to the control center. But for some reason, the island itself was silent. Even its towering titans chose not to graze openly. A haunting chill polluted the atmosphere of the center. Tensions were stirring; everyone could feel it, until suddenly the power went out. As technicians rushed to repair the damages, nobody could have ever imagined that the island itself was going to become a theatre of war.

Dark clouds bleached out the azure-tinted sky. Thunder wailed its defiance from the heavens. An eerie feeling forewarned all of the ever mounting danger that was at hand. Suddenly, a blinding light temporarily chased away the darkness. A burning meteorite separated the clouds, as it rapidly descended to meet the world below. While its size didn't possess the capability of annihilating the island, it would still give a wakeup call. Its extraterrestrial shape plummeted deep beneath the island's soil. Powerful shockwaves disemboweled the earthly crust. Trees miles away were flattened by the devastating shockwaves. Plumes of smoke and fire enveloped the region. Its arrival was likely foretold by the instincts of the residential kaiju; however, an even greater threat was being born inside the impact crater.

Elsewhere, another object from space arrived. Unlike a meteorite, this object was completely organic. Its three, fearsome heads located the wounded island. Areas of where the meteorite had landed were now a smoldering conflagration. But the rest of the island still retained its rich forests. Six, devilish eyes eagerly anticipated the abundant of energy the forests would forfeit. Armored, gray scales coated the sinister creature. Its four, muscular legs anticipated the warmth of the ground. A crimson luminance radiated out of the entity's demonic orbs. It had visited over a dozen planets, and single-handedly reduced them to barren worlds. A descendent of the tyrannical abomination of the cosmos, King Ghidorah, it earned its own reputation of Death. Only a handful of mythical beings could identity its identity: Desghidorah.

Desghidorah's brawny wings propelled the three-headed titan downwards. Its speeding form collided against the ground. Mounds of dirt defied gravity by ascending high up into the air. Upon landing, Desghidorah immediately sought to replenish its insatiable hunger. The devilish dragon abstracted waves of emerald energy, which represented the life force of the trees. It took only a few seconds for the abstraction to be complete. For an entire hour, Desghidorah sapped entire fields of trees dry. All that remained was withered, empty shells of lumber.

A horrible growl caught Desghidorah's primordial attention. Desghidorah's skeletal heads searched for the bearer of the sound. To its surprise, a lumbering giant stood before it. Bat-like wings stretched out of the corners of its back. An amber-hued horn stretched out of its forehead. A demonic jaw filled with hundreds of needlelike teeth exhaled micro-oxygen. Thorny claws pointed out of the tips of its hands. A crimson carapace covered its thick body. Unknown to Desghidorah, the creature before it was also a harbinger of death. Its main purpose in life was to destroy it.

Destoroyah.

A screeching cry bellowed out of Destoroyah's gaping maw. For the first time in Desghidorah's repulsive existence, it felt a sensation of fear. This giant of chaos before him was filled to the brim with anarchy. But such emotions quickly dissipated. Instead, Desghidorah now yearned to destroy this impudent creature. Without further delay, Desghidorah replied with its own defiant roar, and attacked. Balls of molten energy bolted out of Desghidorah's mouths. They pelted Destoroyah's brawny carapace and imprinted smoldering craters. While the wounds were little, the pain was phenomenal. Strangely, Destoroyah fed off it. The pain brought more purpose to its miserable way of life. While it took great glee in exterminating other life forms, it had never experienced the very thing it wielded. In retaliation, Destoroyah's gleaming horn crackled to life. A lavender-hued beam made up of the destructive nature of the Oxygen Destroyer spewed out of Destoroyah's serrated jaws. They lanced into Desghidorah's legs, shredding the joints that were buried beneath mounds of flesh and muscle. Layers of flesh were instantly dissolved.

Desghidorah howled in agony.

The two titans traded glances. Intense hate was exchanged between the leviathans. The only way to resolve such a conflict would be to overpower the other physically. Without another thought, Desghidorah galloped to meet its abominable foe. Destoroyah's monstrous feet left giant footprints in its sprinting wake. The entire island vibrated as these two titans of chaos clashed. Desghidorah stood on his hind legs and struck Destoroyah's chest with its frontal feet. Destoroyah's powerful body withstood the seismic collision. Desghidorah's added weight forced Destoroyah's feet to sink deeper beneath the terrain. Enraged, Destoroyah impaled Desghidorah's anterior ankles with its razor-sharp claws. The two grappled with one another, desperately hoping to usurp the other with strength alone.

Desghidorah's middle head deemed the contest void.

Hot, churning flames sprayed out of the middle head's mouth. It engulfed Destoroyah's entire face, vaporizing the facial tissue instantly. Charred residue is all that remained. The region that would normally contain Destoroyah's eyes had been burnt out. And yet, the fearsome creature would not be denied. Trillions of microscopic organisms, each making up Destoroyah's grotesque figure, screamed for Desghidorah's annihilation. Destoroyah cranked his body forward, arching its crackling horn down Desghidorah's sternum. The pulsating energy left behind a deep cut, submerged beneath Desghidorah's chest region. Internal organs were dismembered, forced to deal with the unnatural stress that had befallen upon them.

A milky, white substance seeped out of the diagonal cut. It kept the wound exposed, preventing Desghidorah's skin from healing the damages. Desghidorah felt the substance lurking internally. To avenge itself, Desghidorah charged the foul beast before it, and slammed its massive bulk against Destoroyah. Overwhelmed, Destoroyah tottered backwards, and was barely able to retain its composure. Destoroyah blindly searched for Desghidorah, no longer possessing the delight of just having the diabolical dragon in front of it. Billions of microscopic organisms flooded Destoroyah's eye canals. In unison, the tiny organisms evolved, manipulating their genetic structures to form two new eyes. Destoroyah howled defiantly, its sight was now restored.

Molten balls of energy erupted out of Desghidorah's mouths. The barrage of fiery projectiles bombarded Destoroyah's frontal body. Smoke sizzled from Destoroyah's burnt flesh. A putrid smell lingered from Destoroyah's incinerated skin. To most, the smell was repulsive, but to Desghidorah, it was an invitation to feed. But all six of Desghidorah's eyes conveyed an alarming response. Crackling energy was coursing through Destoroyah's mammoth horn. It heralded the excruciating pain Desghidorah had barely endured previously. Desghidorah's three mouths roared defiantly, hoping to make Destoroyah think twice about attacking. Destoroyah declared Desghidorah's threats to be nothing more but a bluff. But before Destoroyah could spew out its destructive power, a lancing bolt of electromagnetic energy struck Destoroyah's back. It instantly vaporized a large portion of Destoroyah's backside, before exiting out Destoroyah's chest. Green blood vomited out of Destoroyah's fearsome maw. Its painful cries silenced the wind. Unable to withstand the agonizing pain, Destoroyah fell forward, and slammed its massive figure against the ground.

Desghidorah was in utter-awe.

While Destoroyah's pain delighted Desghidorah's sick and conniving mind, it was still a sight to behold. A sudden thought alerted Desghidorah's demented mind to take advantage of the situation. In acknowledgement, Desghidorah's side heads unleashed a barrage of molten energy balls. The central head spat a torrent of blazing flames. Desghidorah's frontal assault bombarded Destoroyah's weak and helpless figure. To survive this brutal onslaught, an organic cloud engulfed Destoroyah, providing cover as its molecular structure minimized. Beneath the soil, Destoroyah recuperated. Above ground, Desghidorah roared triumphantly. The chaotic dragon's arrogance blinded its memory from recalling exactly what harmed Destoroyah in the first place…

…Or where it came from.

An unearthly roar captured Desghidorah's attention. Obscured by darkness, the possessor of the roar was barely visible. Desghidorah faced the invader, unaware of its destructive potency. The invader crawled out of the darkness, and revealed its invertebrate features. A silvery carapace covered its mysterious form. It crawled on several legs. Egg sacks were tucked inside its abdomen. A pair of five claws protruded out of its upper shell, and moved around its face. Two horns, clamped against one another, bulged out of its visage. Azure-hued eyes lividly glared out of their chambers. The creature before Desghidorah shared a destructive reputation. Its species had traveled the cosmos, implanting its seeds on unsuspecting worlds. Its cold, collective mind desired only to follow its instincts. In doing so, it had formed a large legion of barbaric entities.

Thus, its name was known simply as Legion.

Legion's electronic roar vibrated the earth. A massive creature in its own right, Legion immediately demanded Desghidorah's awareness. Compressed gas internally motivated Legion's muscles to move. Its silicon based visage deemed Desghidorah unworthy. Legion's monstrous horns latched open, exposing a jewel-shaped object embedded in-between Legion's eyes. Electromagnetic energies flared to life. They emerged out of the jewel and erratically bounced off Legion's horns. The intense light blinded Legion's gaze. Annoyed by the light show, Legion discharged an electromagnetic blast. It struck the ground, hundreds of yards away from Desghidorah. A cascade of electromagnetic bolts and fire pillaged the soil, vaporizing it utterly. The ground shook beneath Desghidorah's feet. Desghidorah had finally learned of the identity of Destoroyah's assailant.

Plumes of smoke crept out of the smoldering impact crater. Either the electromagnetic bolts blinded Legion from hitting her target or it was on purpose. Either way, Desghidorah wasn't willing to give her another chance. Molten balls of energy burst out of Desghidorah's mouths. Bolts of energy rippled out of the tips of Legion's claws. They zapped the tip of Legion's horns, forming an electromagnetic barrier. Desghidorah's fiery assaults struck the shield, but had no effect. The electromagnetic bolts shredded the energetic properties, reducing them to a ghastly cloud of plasma.

Desghidorah's devious mouths parted, exerting an irritated growl. The chaotic dragon scratched the surface of the ground, prepping its muscles for a quick sprint to meet its opponent head on. Desghidorah's galloping form shook the earth. Cracks splintered the soil, a testament of Desghidorah's massive figure. Legion remained perfectly still. When Desghidorah drew closer, Legion's hind legs dug into the land. She hoisted her body straight up, using her hind legs to keep her balanced. Desghidorah prepared to slam its bulk against Legion's own, but stopped right as she brought her hulking body down upon him. Legion's superior mass drilled Desghidorah into the ground. The impact caused the entire island to tremble.

Legion's serrated legs complied with her command. They impaled Desghidorah's sturdy legs, and crucified them against the dirt. Desghidorah was too dazed to cry out. Legion loomed over the helpless devourer of worlds. Her horns divided, allowing an electromagnetic surge to once again occupy its cavity. At point blank range, Legion's destructive weapon would no doubt obliterate the three-headed dragon. Tiny tremors vibrated her burrowed legs. Legion's electromagnetic activity disappeared. Another creature was stirring beneath her. Before she could determine the most suitable course of action, several devilish fiends crawled out of the soil, and attacked her. These creatures resembled demonic entities that could only be found in nightmares.

They were Destoroyah Aggregates, crablike entities capable of overpowering even the mightiest creatures by sheer numbers alone. The Aggregates crept up Legion. They're sharp, jagged legs failed to penetrate Legion's thick exoskeleton; however, they eventually reached her spiky claws. Destructive energies sprayed out of the Aggregates' demonic mandibles. They struck the heart of the claws, and annihilated the exterior. Legion's painful cries informed the Aggregates of a job well done. Compressed gas sprayed out of the broken claws, signaling Legion's inability to forge her shield. Unable to fend them off, Legion's egg sacks started to squirm with life. By her command, thousands of miniaturized Legions flew out of their egg sacks. An organ located inside Legion's cranium exerted an electronic frequency. The frequency signaled the swarm to descend upon the Destoroyah Aggregates. They complied with their queen, and viciously landed on the prehistoric creatures. Sharp claws punctured the thick carapaces of the Destoroyah Aggregates. Green blood oozed out of their wounds. The Aggregates were forced to breakdown to a microscopic level. It was at that moment, they retaliated. Legion was horrified to see her beautiful swarm broken down by microscopic entities fueled by the destructive power of the Oxygen Destroyer.

Legion ordered them to return to their sacks, where they'd be safe. But she was too late. From all around, she saw her swarm breakdown. Only silicon skeletons remained. With her swarm destroyed, the electronic organ exploded. Legion's screeching cries echoed across the vastness of Monster Island. She was unaware that Desghidorah's middle head had wiggled itself free. A torrent of blistering flames struck her chest cavity, incinerating the empty egg sacks. Legion backed away, regrettably pulling her weight off of Desghidorah. Desghidorah crawled out of the ground, no longer having to endure Legion's enormous weight. The horrible dragon turned to face the stunned Legion. A barrage of blistering energy balls erupted out of Desghidorah's mouths, pelting Legion's thick exoskeleton. While they failed to severely damage Legion's exterior, they did inflict significant burn marks. A furious look of disdain glimmered out of Legion's cold, emotionless eyes. Desghidorah returned the sentiment.

Legion's horns widened. Crackling bolts of electromagnetic energy blazed to life. Desghidorah nervously panicked, sensing its inevitable demise. It could not avoid Legion's wrath, even if it tried. A blazing light harpooned out of Legion's forehead, and struck underneath Desghidorah's belly. The impact occurred on the ground, but the destructive force ascended, striking Desghidorah's underbelly. Desghidorah's painful screams informed Legion that her miss wasn't a complete loss. The electromagnetic bolts and napalm roasted Desghidorah's underbelly, shredding its skin and incinerating the bodily organs within. Desghidorah was forced to fall down, its legs too weak to lift the rest of the body upwards.

Seeing that her foe was helpless, Legion prepared to unleash her full wrath upon the helpless dragon. As electromagnetic energies gleamed brightly in-between her horns, a horrible fate had befallen upon Legion. An energetic saber diagonally sliced down the top of her skull. It did not stop until it reached her ankles. This sudden attack interfered with the electromagnetic particles, causing them to fade from existence. Legion's azure-hued eyes followed suit. Legion, the pinnacle of instinctual conquest, was dead. Her lifeless body slumped to the ground. Behind her, the identity of Legion's destroyer was revealed. Desghidorah's weary eyes identified Destoroyah's grotesque shape, rejuvenated and at full health. A demonic laughter escaped Destoroyah's haunting maw. Destoroyah slowly lumbered towards Desghidorah's helpless figure, crushing Legion's cranium along the way.

Inside the command center, the technicians were able to restore power. In the control panel, scientists were stunned to see the damage that had occurred to the island. A quarter of the island had been annihilated by the meteor. But the aftermath of the impact isn't what haunted the scientists. Instead, the stunning sight of a concluding battle of biblical proportions captured their attention. According to the ‘Kaiju Archives', the lumbering giant walking away from two unidentified corpses was Destoroyah. It left behind the hollow carcass of Legion and the skeletal remains of Desghidorah. A rumbling roar escaped Destoroyah's putrid jaws. It was a warning to all life on Earth…

...A warning that promised death.
