Atomic Heat Ray Gun
History[edit | edit source]
As the titanic Mothra larva entered Tokyo, the JSDF followed, attempting to attack it to no avail. Damaging Tokyo Tower, the larva formed a gigantic cocoon around herself, prompting the use of the Atomic Heat Ray Guns. Firing their beams at the silky capsule, the intense heat caused the cocoon to burst into flame. However, rather than killing off Mothra, the heat provided her the energy to fully transform. Breaking free of the cocoon, Mothra flew away from Japan toward New Kirk City, leaving the nation bewildered.
After the appearance of a second Godzilla in Tateyama in 1999, Prime Minister Machiko Tsuge and Minister of Science and Technology Hayato Igarashi discussed how after the original Godzilla raided Tokyo in 1954, monsters frequently menaced Japan. One such monster was Mothra, a huge moth that attacked Tokyo in 1961. To combat the monster, the JSDF used advanced Atomic Heat Ray Guns, which would later form the technological basis for the Maser Cannons.

Trivia[edit | edit source]
- The Atomic Heat Ray Guns appear to be based on the Markalite Cannons and Atomic Heat Cannons, as they share the same satellite-disk features. As a result, they also share close similarities with the Maser Cannons. In Godzilla Against Mechagodzilla, it is revealed that the Atomic Heat Ray guns were precursors to the Maser Cannon in that continuity.
- The Atomic Heat Ray Gun prop was repurposed in Invasion of Astro-Monster as the device the Xiliens use to revive Godzilla and Rodan on Planet X.
