In fiction[edit | edit source]

  • Godzilla is released from his imprisonment inside the crater of Mount Mihara by terrorists working for Bio-Major. A creature created from the combination of the DNA of Godzilla, a rose, and a scientist's deceased daughter, dubbed Biollante, attracts the King of the Monsters toward Lake Ashi. Before reaching the lake, Godzilla engages the JSDF's new weapon Super X2 at sea and forces it to withdraw. Godzilla defeats Biollante at Lake Ashi before assaulting Osaka, where he destroys the Super X2 but is successfully injected with the Anti-Nuclear Energy Bacteria. Godzilla engages Biollante again in a final confrontation at Wakasa Bay, where he is weakened by the effects of the ANEB and stumbles into the sea. Both monsters then go their separate ways: Godzilla out to sea, and Biollante into outer space. (Godzilla vs. Biollante)
