Name[edit | edit source]
Baas Island's name was likely intended as a transliteration of the English word "birth" (バース. The translation Birth Island is occasionally used, such as in bāsu)The Official Godzilla Compendium, and more recently the video games Godzilla for the PS4, Godzilla Defense Force and Godzilla Battle Line. The island's name is nonetheless translated as "Baas Island" by dialogue and on-screen text in the international export version of Godzilla vs. SpaceGodzilla.
History[edit | edit source]
Baas Island is introduced as a lush island idyll that is home primarily to LittleGodzilla, whilst Godzilla comes ashore frequently to look after him. A group of U.N.G.C.C. researchers also visit the island. It is here where SpaceGodzilla makes his first attack on Earth, and captures LittleGodzilla in a series of crystals after temporarily incapacitating Godzilla. After SpaceGodzilla flies off, Godzilla gives chase, and leaves the island. After SpaceGodzilla is defeated by both Godzilla and MOGUERA, LittleGodzilla is set free from his crystal prison, and jumps about for joy.
Prior to the events of Godzilla vs. Destoroyah, Godzilla entered the first stages of his Meltdown, and generated massive levels of heat and radiation. This caused Uranium deposits in the ground to catch fire. The island was engulfed in a massive explosion, leaving only a few smoldering rocks behind. The radiation given off by the exploding island also allowed LittleGodzilla to grow into Godzilla Junior. With nowhere left to live, Junior decided that he would travel north, towards his birthplace in the Bering Strait, on Adonoa Island.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- Baas Island is likely inspired by the many monster-filled islands of the Showa series, such as Letchi Island, Sollgel Island, and Monster Island.
