Kaiju War Chronicles (K.W.C.)
Match 66:
By: Christian Salabert

Ultraman soared through the skies over Tokyo, looking over the destruction that had stricken the land. What was once the busy capital of Japan was now a ghost town, covered in enormous crystals. Ultraman knew what had to be done. Soon, he would be upon the creator of these crystals and engage him in combat. He hoped he was up to the challenge of taking down such a beast. The doubts had little time to move about in his mind, however, as soon Ultraman spotted his target.


Godzilla's intergalactic doppelgänger looked into the air, his eyes closing in on Ultraman as he approached. Knowing instantly that a fight was about to take place, the cosmic saurian summoned energy from his crystals, charging himself with his galactic power. Another call, and energy from Tokyo Tower poured into his shoulder crystals, giving him an even greater boost. SpaceGodzilla watched as Ultraman landed in front of him, not too far away. The two titans stared each other down, waiting for the other to break the silence and make the first attack.

Non-surprisingly, SpaceGodzilla made the first move.

His Corona Beam pierced the air, exploding around Ultraman's feet. Before the mighty warrior could retaliate, the bolt traveled up his leg to his chest, knocking him to the ground. Ultraman was back on his feet in an instant and charged SpaceGodzilla, raising his fist and slamming it into the monster's jaw. As SpaceGodzilla reeled back, Ultraman lashed out with his leg, slamming his knee into the creature's side. SpaceGodzilla cried out and fired another Corona Beam blast, but Ultraman flipped out of the way, narrowly avoiding the bolt. Ultraman leapt into the air, planting his foot into SpaceGodzilla's chest, sending the beast crashing onto his back. As SpaceGodzilla attempted to right himself, Ultraman reached down and grabbed the monster's tail. Ultraman pulled, trying to lift the creature into the air, when a surge of cosmic energy traveled through the tail and blasted Ultraman's hands, forcing him to let go. In a burst of light, SpaceGodzilla transformed into his crystalline flying form and took to the sky.

SpaceGodzilla rained Corona Beams down on the area, surrounding Ultraman with explosions. The warrior from Nebula M78 crossed his hands and fired a Specium Beam at the flying demon, but the blast merely bounced off SpaceGodzilla's crystal spikes. SpaceGodzilla returned fire and struck Ultraman in the chest with a Corona Beam, sending the giant crashing through a building. SpaceGodzilla neared the wreckage to investigate, when Ultraman flew high into the air, past his foe. As SpaceGodzilla flew up to face his opponent, Ultraman fired another Specium Beam, striking SpaceGodzilla in the face and drawing out a pained shriek. SpaceGodzilla lifted into the air to face Ultraman, but the warrior easily outmaneuvered the crystalline creature. Another blast of the Specium Beam failed to damage the monster's crystals, forcing Ultraman to generate a Cutting Halo in his hand. He hurled the buzzsaw-like blast at SpaceGodzilla's back, but even the slicing blade of the Cutting Halo failed to leave lasting damage, throwing sparks and little else. SpaceGodzilla turned and fired a Corona Beam at his foe, which Ultraman managed to dodge. He dodged a second blast, but a third blast hit home. Ultraman faltered but managed to stay in the air. Shrieking evilly, SpaceGodzilla flew directly at Ultraman, who did the same. The two zoomed through the air towards each other, intent on knocking the other from the sky. Just before the two collided, SpaceGodzilla veered off to the side, slashing Ultraman with his crystals as he passed him. Ultraman cried out as he plummeted from the sky, crashing to the ground far below. SpaceGodzilla peppered the area with Corona Beams, striking Ultraman repeatedly. Ultraman groaned in pain as each blast hit home.

SpaceGodzilla lowered himself to the ground, withdrawing his flight crystals. Just as Ultraman was getting to his feet, SpaceGodzilla unleashed another Corona blast, bringing him down once again. His shoulder crystals flashing, SpaceGodzilla unleashed his Gravity Tornado, encircling Ultraman with its emerald energies. Ultraman struggled as he was lifted into the air, but he couldn't escape the Gravity Tornado's hold. The mighty defender was helpless as SpaceGodzilla telekinetically smashed him face-first into a nearby skyscraper, bringing it down on Ultraman's head. The attack rendered Ultraman unconscious, leaving him vulnerable to SpaceGodzilla's wrath. The crystalline demon advanced on the fallen Ultraman, absorbing cosmic energy into his shoulder crystals as he went. He looked down at the prone form of Ultraman, generating a powerful Corona Beam in his throat.

Just then, the ground began to shake. SpaceGodzilla was thrown off-balance, but managed to keep his footing. He scanned the area as the shaking became more intense, but he couldn't find the source. Suddenly, something grabbed his foot and pulled it down into the street. SpaceGodzilla shrieked as he struggled to pull his foot back up, but whatever had hold of it refused to let go. His dorsal crystals flashing, SpaceGodzilla unleashed a Corona Beam that curved downward, blasting into the hole that was swallowing his leg. Seconds later, a large form erupted from the ground, screeching furiously at the alien menace.

Gomora went on the attack!

Gomora immediately began to clobber SpaceGodzilla's face with his clawed hands, driving the space monster away from Ultraman. He lashed out with his leg, kicking SpaceGodzilla's knee and causing the beast to falter. Another kick, this time to SpaceGodzilla's stomach, drove the creature even further back. Gomora raised his hand to strike SpaceGodzilla again, but the cosmic monster unleashed a blast of his Corona Beam, exploding against Gomora's chest and sending him staggering back. Another blast and Gomora crashed to the ground, shrieking in pain. With a speed that belied his bulk, Gomora was back on his feet and spun around, whipping SpaceGodzilla's face with the end of his tail. SpaceGodzilla stepped back, reeling from the blow, giving Gomora an opening to attack. Gomora charged, slamming his horned head into SpaceGodzilla's gut. SpaceGodzilla cried out, but managed to grab onto Gomora's horns. Gomora struggled to pull himself free, but was helpless as SpaceGodzilla channeled his intergalactic energy through his hands and into Gomora's head. Sparks erupted from Gomora's skull as the energy assaulted his body, a sight which made SpaceGodzilla cackle with evil glee. After a moment of this attack, SpaceGodzilla shoved Gomora away. As the subterranean dinosaur stood back up, another Corona Beam forced him onto his knee.

SpaceGodzilla advanced on his downed foe, but Gomora was back on his feet in an instant, his horns brimming with crimson energy. A pulsing stream of energy suddenly fired from Gomora's snout horn, slamming into SpaceGodzilla's chest and eliciting a cry of pain and surprise. Gomora pressed on, his oscillatory wave scorching SpaceGodzilla's flesh. Gomora cut off his attack, taking a moment to recharge. SpaceGodzilla's dorsal fins flashed. Expecting another Corona Beam, Gomora unleashed another blast of his oscillatory wave, intent on not giving his opponent a chance to release his weapon. Unfortunately for Gomora, seconds before his attack would have struck SpaceGodzilla, the space demon revealed he wasn't going to fire his Corona Beam. A crystalline energy shield popped up in front of SpaceGodzilla, not only protecting the monster from Gomora's blast, but also redirecting it back at the horned reptile. Gomora had no time to react before his own energy wave slammed back into his face, knocking him to the ground in a burst of sparks. Dazed, Gomora struggled to get back to his feet. He tried to push himself up off the ground, but a blast from the Corona Beam sent him back down. Another blast ceased any further movements from the reptile. SpaceGodzilla made his way next to Gomora's prone body and prepared to finish him off. Suddenly, he paused, curious. Where was that strange beeping noise coming from?

Flying through the air, Ultraman planted his foot into SpaceGodzilla's shoulder, sending the space monster careening to the ground.

Gomora slowly rose to his feet and locked eyes with Ultraman. The two nodded to each other. They knew neither one of them could beat this foe on their own. They needed to combine their strength if they were to triumph. As SpaceGodzilla telekinetically lifted himself back to his feet, the two struck their respective battle poses and charged. SpaceGodzilla absorbed more energy into his shoulder crystals as he prepared to destroy his foes. Maybe together the two would provide the galactic Godzilla a worthy challenge. He unleashed a Corona Beam at the two of them. Ultraman flipped over the blast and Gomora jumped to the side, allowing the blast to explode against the pavement. Landing next to SpaceGodzilla, Ultraman kicked his side, causing him to stagger. Seconds later, SpaceGodzilla was struck in the face by Gomora's tail, sending him back towards Ultraman. The red and silver warrior raised his hands and fired a Specium Beam blast into SpaceGodzilla's neck, eliciting a shriek of anger from the beast. As he turned to face Ultraman, Gomora charged in and slammed his horned skull into SpaceGodzilla's gut, knocking him back. The two backed away and, standing side-by-side, fired their respective beams at SpaceGodzilla. His shield was up in an instant, reflecting their blasts. Ultraman rolled out of the way, but Gomora's shoulder got caught by the Specium Beam, bringing the heroic monster to the ground. Ultraman was quickly back on his feet and hurled a Cutting Halo at SpaceGodzilla, but the monster brought up his shield again. As soon as the energy blade hit the crystalline shield, both instantly shattered. SpaceGodzilla shrieked in surprise. Something had destroyed his shield! Before he could mount another attack, Ultraman tossed another Cutting Halo at him, but this time, he threw a second one a few seconds behind it. The first one shattered as it destroyed SpaceGodzilla's shield, but the second one kept on going, striking the monster's left shoulder crystal. Though it failed to slice all the way through, it did manage to gash out a sizable chunk from the crystal in a shower of sparks. SpaceGodzilla cried out angrily, unleashing a Corona Beam which snaked around Ultraman before blasting him in the face, knocking him into his back.

The red energies of the super oscillatory wave blasted into SpaceGodzilla's face, knocking him back. Gomora kept the beam firing, making sure to cause as much damage to SpaceGodzilla as he could. Unable to fire his Corona Beam as explosion after explosion erupted in his face, he fired one of his power crystals out of the ground like a missile. The projectile struck Gomora in the back, causing him to cut off the beam and shriek in pain. SpaceGodzilla followed up with a jagged bolt of energy from his mouth, which circled around Gomora before scorching his stomach. Gomora jumped back in pain before another Corona Beam brought him down hard. SpaceGodzilla shrieked as another Cutting Halo chipped his left shoulder crystal. He turned around, spewing his Corona Beam as he did so. The lightning-like blast tore through the city as he swung it around before hitting Ultraman and knocking him away.

Ultraman gripped his chest as he tried to get back to his feet. His Color Timer was beeping rapidly. Gomora could sense his ally's increasing power loss. They knew they had to finish this now.

SpaceGodzilla eyed his foes, waiting for one of them to make a move.

Channeling a large amount of power, Ultraman fired his Specium Beam at a damaged area in SpaceGodzilla's shoulder crystal. In a burst of flames and glass-like shards, the crystal exploded, drawing an agonized shriek from SpaceGodzilla. He turned to blast the giant humanoid into ashes, when he felt a stabbing pain in his back. Gomora immediately began to pump SpaceGodzilla's body full of destructive energies, unleashing his oscillatory wave inside him. SpaceGodzilla fought fire with fire, sending a surge of his alien energies through his skin, blasting Gomora in the face and dislodging him. SpaceGodzilla swung his tail around, intent on impaling Gomora with the cluster of crystals on the tail's end. But Gomora saw the attack coming and stepped back, avoiding the tail and snatching it out of the air. Before the cosmic terror could react, Gomora tugged with all of his strength and pulled SpaceGodzilla high into the air. SpaceGodzilla shrieked in surprise as he was tossed high into the air by Gomora's Herculean strength. Before SpaceGodzilla could activate his flight crystals, Gomora pulled down on his tail, yanking him back down to earth and slamming him into the pavement. SpaceGodzilla screamed out as his right shoulder crystal exploded, shattered by the impact. Gomora and Ultraman stood side-by-side and cautiously watched SpaceGodzilla as he slowly floated back to his feet.

SpaceGodzilla tried to summon more power with which to annihilate his foes, but with his shoulder crystals gone, the power that came to him had nowhere to go. Left with few options, he raised more crystals from the ground and fired them off. Unfortunately, due to his low power, only a scant few shot towards the pair. Ultraman and Gomora were ready and returned fire with their energy blasts. They easily tore through the crystal rockets, destroying them, and continued on, blasting SpaceGodzilla in the chest. The space monster brought up his shield, but only had enough strength to keep it up for a few moments before their beams blasted through it and slammed into his chest. The beams exploded against SpaceGodzilla again and again, driving him back until he crashed into the Tokyo Tower. SpaceGodzilla roared in defiance as their beams burnt through his flesh, their energies crossing with his own, out-of-control power. Gomora and Ultraman poured more energy into their attacks, not letting up for even a second. Red and blue energy crackled over SpaceGodzilla's body as he howled into the sky, unable to deny the inevitable. In a massive ball of fire, SpaceGodzilla exploded, taking Tokyo Tower and most of the surrounding area with him. Had the pair of heroes not been shielding their eyes, they would have noticed the golden particles rising from the flames and disappearing into the sky.

Ultraman's Color Timer was beeping nonstop now. It was time to go. The mighty warrior faced Gomora and nodded to the dinosaur, who returned the gesture. Gomora watched as Ultraman leapt into the air and disappeared into the stratosphere. The reptile turned and made his way back to the hole in the ground he had emerged from. Climbing inside, Gomora burrowed his way back into the depths of the earth.

Gomora Ultraman
