The War for Monster Island! Godzilla awoke from a deep slumber. His atomically-altered brain had developed a new kind of instinct and it pulled at him now, tugging the behemoth into consciousness. He inhaled four tons of saltwater with his first waking breath and dragged his massive frame off of the ocean floor. Something was wrong.

"I say leave them to their fate." grumbled Doctor Hakama. He was tired of justifying the expense to the government. "There's always a problem on Monster Island. No! We will keep Mechagodzilla here. If this power struggle spreads to the mainland, then we may have no choice, but for now we must finish the upgrades."
They had been monitoring skirmishes on the island for a few days. Godzilla had been absent for many weeks and now some of the alpha-monsters were blustering, like male bulls competing for a herd. But it was all routine stuff until today - when King Ghidorah descended on the island - that changed everything.
To make matters worse, a huge mass of waste from Fukushima was coagulating in the Pacific. Small monsters called "hedorah" that spawn in filth and feed on chemicals had been sighted and a few had been destroyed, but the situation was getting out of control.
Re: The War for Monster Island! King Ghidorah vs Rodan & Mothra

Re: The War for Monster Island! Gigan had arrived on Monster Island at the bidding of his alien masters. With the hierarchy of Earth's titans in disarray, this was their chance to take control of the unique island and it's oversized denizens. After several hours of metallic bellowing - an open challenge to all comers - there was yet to be a direct confrontation. King Ghidorah was weakened from it's battle and remained in hiding. And Godzilla? Nowhere to be found. Gigan went silent and still with the coming of nightfall.
The next day...
A massive shadow slithered beneath the white-capped waves of the Pacific. Beneath the surface, huge schools of sea life scattered frantically at it's approach. In it's wake, the sediment of the ocean floor was churned into a murky storm that would take hours to clear.
From a Nippon Defense "Sentry" airborne warning plane, Major Hida reported, "This is not a pod of whales. Tell those whaling ships to clear a lane!" He listened intently on his headset, "No sir, we've been tracking it for about 10 minutes. It appears to be a lone monster, bearing 214 degrees at 63 knots. I'm telling you, this could only be Godzilla and he's headed home."
Two hours later, a peculiar ridgeline slashed the surface of the water like a serrated dorsal fin. It slowed in the shallows of Monster Island's lagoon before the tremendous bulk of Godzilla emerged, towering over beachline. An unmistakeable roar announced his presence, reverberating through the hills! Every footfall sent tremors through the earth as he marched inland. When a cloud of scavengers erupted in his path, the great monster stopped to inspect the huge carcasse. It was Mothra, her once shining scales now dull in death. Sometimes a foe; sometimes an ally. He stared in passive curiousity for a bit, but deep inside there came a spark of anger. Moments later, his spinal ridges glowed and the fire in his belly reached critcal mass. The resulting blast uncerimoniously cremated the remains of the queen moth. He gave a low rumbling growl as he turned and walked away.
The dormant statue that was Gigan lit-up.
Source: Godzilla. (98% accuracy)
Gigan's cybernetic senses detected heat. Lots of heat... Approaching through the low valley to his left.
Godzilla sensed him too: A cool alien presence ahead. He picked up the pace and his churning feet effortlessly trampled the forest to splinters. Gigan postured, clacking his scythe-like arms together as Godzilla broke into the rocky clearing. Without hesitation, Godzilla charged him like a battering ram.

Re: The War for Monster Island! KING GHIDORAH vs GODZILLA
Three days later…
Small tremors stirred King Ghidorah from its slumber. Having established air superiority over Monster Island, the King of the Sky would have to take it's war to the ground. The beast unfolded from it's meteor-like shell, crushing trees and grinding bedrock beneath, Ghidorah raised it's heads above a low ridge line. On the opposite side of the valley, Mount Satsunai vented a column of sulphuric smoke that merged with the gray overcast, but this was not the source of the tremors. Godzilla was approaching.

Re: The War for Monster Island! Holy cow... This has been fun! These kaiju battles have been epic and in my mind are far better than anything I remember from Toho. Oddly, the last Godzilla film I saw was that Americanized debacle... Give me Cloverfield any day.
Anyhow...I've still got Hedorah and Mechagodzilla that could rise up to challenge for control of Monster Island. So this may not be over just yet.
