In fiction[edit | edit source]
- Joe Brody, a man who used to be a nuclear physicist until his wife Sandra Brody was killed in 1999, is arrested in Japan for trespassing the quarantined Janjira zone, making his son, Ford, go get him out of jail. Joe convinces his son to go back into Janjira, where they get arrested and where a winged MUTO escapes and causes much damage to the top-secret containment site built by Monarch, killing Joe. Ford goes back to Hawaii as the MUTO and the reawakened Godzilla are revealed to the world when they start causing destruction in Hawaii, Nevada, and California. After a short battle, the winged MUTO escapes from Godzilla and goes and steals a warhead that was armed shortly before he arrived. The female, eight-legged MUTO hatches and attacks Las Vegas, and arrives in San Francisco soon. The MUTOs start a mating ritual and lay hundreds of eggs in San Francisco, but the military comes in and tries taking the warhead away where it can explode safely. While fruitlessly searching through the ruins of San Francisco for their missing son Andrew, Mark Russell and his wife Emma and their daughter Madison witness Godzilla walk past them. Ford destroys the eggs as Godzilla arrives and fights both MUTOs, who became overpowered by the two, but the destruction of their nest caused the MUTOs to cease double-teaming Godzilla and went back to check on the nest. When the female discovered Brody was responsible, she prepared to kill him, only for Godzilla to emerge and blast her with his atomic breath, buying time for Brody and the other soldiers to carry the warhead to the docks. Godzilla manages to kill the male by slamming his tail into it and impaling the MUTO on the 44 Montgomery skyscraper, which soon collapsed onto Godzilla. After the female MUTO kills the soldiers Ford came with, Godzilla grabbed the MUTO from behind before she could kill him and fired his atomic breath down her throat, decapitating her. After roaring victorious, he falls unconscious from exhaustion, the warhead explodes away from the city, and Godzilla wakes up the next morning, returning to the sea while Ford returns to his family. Following the battle, Mark grows to blame Godzilla for the loss of his son and resigns from Monarch, maintaining a desire to have the monster killed.
- Several months later, Godzilla reemerges to battle the parent superspecies of two MUTOs, MUTO Prime, when it emerges at an American military base in Guam. Gradually weakening him over the course of several brief encounters, MUTO Prime aims to infect Godzilla with its parasitic larvae, potentially giving rise to an entire ecosystem of MUTOs which could wipe out the human race. Fortunately, through the intervention of Emma Russell, Godzilla is able to triumph over MUTO Prime in their last encounter and slay it once and for all. Godzilla then disappears into the depths of the ocean for five years, though Monarch keeps tabs on him. (Godzilla / Godzilla: King of the Monsters / Godzilla: Aftershock)
