"A Godziban Tale: The Tortoise and the Hare"

This segment tells the story of the fictional picture book "Godziban Tales: The Tortoise and the Hare," borrowing concepts from the real-world fable by Aesop. The hare, represented by Godzilla-kun with rabbit ears, engages Minilla and Little, who are dressed as tortoises, in a race to the top of a hill. He questions why the story has two tortoises instead of one, to which they tell him not to worry about it, and tries to reference Gamera, but they cut him off before he can say the monster's full name. Godzilla-kun easily speeds past his slow-moving brothers and eventually, confident of winning, decides to take a nap midway through the race. Sometime later, with the sun setting, he awakens in a fit, believing that his competitors had passed him. However, as he turns around to look, he sees that Minilla and Little have still only barely caught up to him. Annoyed at their slowness, Godzilla-kun shouts at the pair before passing back out on the ground. They later begin spinning and lift off into the air as he tries to cover the camera in alarm.

"A World First! Robot Press Conference"

Dr. Roborobo holds the world's first robot press conference with his new invention, Jet Jaguar. The reporters ask the robot if he is truly capable of free will, to which he responds that he indeed is. They also ask what feature robots need the most, which he states is the ability to become giant. Suddenly, the monsters Megalon and Godzilla appear, causing Jet Jaguar's eyes to begin glowing. Roborobo explains that the robot's sense of justice has been awakened, and he grows to giant size, to the astonishment of the press. Godzilla and Jet Jaguar stand back-to-back, preparing to launch an attack on Megalon. However, Godzilla quickly realizes that Jet Jaguar has frozen completely. When he looks into the mech's eyes, he sees the message "downloading data" displayed. Roborobo explains to the reporters that Jet Jaguar cannot battle without first downloading a battle mode application. Visibly distressed, they begin yelling at him, "What happened to his free will?!"

"Woeful Warriors"

Two female warriors, Marika and Aira, face each other in battle. As they clash swords, they are distracted by the appearance of Kamachi, who looks up at them in interest. Ignoring him, they run a short distance away and continue their battle, only to notice that Kamachi has again appeared before them. Confused, the girls step back from one another and Aira thrusts her sword at the ground, giving the appearance of stabbing Kamachi. However, in reality, she has merely buried it in the ground, and kneels down to Kamachi to pick him up. As she begins to pet and cuddle the monster, Marika comes up from behind and grabs Kamachi from her. They begin to fight over him, repeatedly ripping him from one another's arms. They then each grab one end of Kamachi, and pull him between them.
