- A giant mixotrophic creature codenamed "Godzilla" appears and terrorizes Japan, destroying several wards of Tokyo after it becomes enraged following the JSDF's attempts to kill it. With seemingly no other options left, other countries prepare a nuclear strike on Japan in an attempt to destroy the creature before it can take over the world. However, before the bomb is dropped, the city is evacuated and Operation Yashiori is concocted to try to spare Tokyo. The operation, a plan to effectively freeze Godzilla using blood coagulant, proves successful and the atomic bombing of Tokyo is postponed. (Shin Godzilla)
- When Monarch discover an extraordinary, three-headed superspecies sealed beneath the Antarctic ice sheet, Dr. Vivienne Graham leads the effort to build a covert containment and research facility around the dormant creature. (Godzilla: King of the Monsters)
