Fairy Mothra (妖精 (フェアリー)モスラ,   Fearī Mosura),[a] also known as simply Fairy (フェアリー,   Fearī), is a tiny divine moth kaiju who first appeared in the 1994 Toho Godzilla film, Godzilla vs. SpaceGodzilla. The character also appeared in the separate continuity of the Rebirth of Mothra trilogy.


Fairy Mothra looks like a miniature Mothra, but the patterns on its body look less like Mothra's or Leo's with each new puppet made for it.


Fairy Mothra is playful and kind to humans, and shows undying loyalty to the Elias, Moll and Lora, who Fairy is quick to protect.


Heisei era

Godzilla vs. SpaceGodzilla

While in space, Mothra spawned thousands of Fairy Mothras, and one was sent to Earth to deliver a message from the Cosmos. In a park, Miki Saegusa was thinking about Project T, a plan which she wasn't sure of, which aimed to control Godzilla with her psychic powers. Just then, a nearby tree's leaves started glowing, and so did her earrings, which had the symbol of the Cosmos. From the tree came out a Fairy Mothra. The Fairy Mothra transformed into a projection of the Cosmos, who told her that SpaceGodzilla was going to try to kill Godzilla, and wanted her to somehow help defeat this monster. The Cosmos disappeared, leaving Miki, who now thought it was necessary to join the project.

Fairy Mothra appeared later when Miki was on Baas Island. The Cosmos warned her that everyone needed to work together to defeat SpaceGodzilla. After SpaceGodzilla was defeated, Fairy Mothra came back again. The Cosmos thanked Miki for saving the world, and Fairy Mothra returned to outer space.

Rebirth of Mothra

After sensing that someone had removed the Seal of Elias used to trap Desghidorah in a Hokkaido forest, Moll and Lora summoned Fairy from Mothra to fly them to Hokkaido. They tracked the Seal to the Gotos' house, where their older sister Belvera had seized it with evil intent. Fairy burst into the house and engaged Belvera's dragon steed Garugaru in a destructive dogfight. Taiki Goto managed to catch Belvera and Garugaru in a butterfly net, but the dragon wounded Fairy with a blind shot before retreating, leaving her unable to fly. After the Elias flew to Hokkaido by plane with the Gotos and regained the Seal from Belvera, they used its power to heal Fairy. But they were too late to stop Desghidorah's awakening, leaving them with no choice but to call upon Mothra. After a long battle, Desghidorah forced Mothra and her newly-hatched son Mothra Leo to retreat. The elder Mothra soon died from her injuries, while Leo traveled to the island of Yakushima to metamorphose. Moll and Lora sang to him as he became an imago. He challenged Desghidorah again, this time with an overwhelming edge in speed and firepower. As Moll and Lora chased Belvera on Fairy, Leo shot down Garugaru with a pair of Crossheat Lasers. Flames from the battle approached Belvera and Garugaru, the latter revealed to be a machine, but Fairy carried Belvera to safety just in time. After Leo put Desghidorah out of commission with the Shine Strike Buster, Taiki and Wakaba gave Moll and Lora the Seal of Elias to lock the monster away once more. Belvera wriggled out of Fairy's grasp and warned Moll and Lora never to trust human beings before escaping. After Leo restored the forest to its former resplendent state, he returned to Infant Island with Moll and Lora following on Fairy.

Rebirth of Mothra 2

After sensing a disturbance on Infant Island, Moll and Lora took to the skies on Fairy and found hordes of red starfish spreading throughout the ocean. On Ishigaki Island, their sister Belvera pursued Shiori, Kyohei, and Yoji, who had discovered a small fuzzy creature called Ghogo. Moll and Lora arrived on Fairy to stop her. The upgraded Garugaru rained down lasers on them and Shiori, tackling Fairy when Moll and Lora tried to block Belvera's path. Belvera revealed to her sisters that she planned to use Ghogo to obtain the miraculous treasure of Nilai-Kanai. Shiori and the boys passed Ghogo to each other, keeping Belvera at bay long enough to reach a heavily populated beach, and she withdrew.

Moll and Lora formally introduced themselves to the kids. At their school, they researched Nilai-Kanai, which according to Okinawan legend was a magical kingdom that sank into the Pacific Ocean 12,000 years ago, also known as Mu. Translating Ghogo's conversation with Fairy, Moll and Lora learned that Dagahra, a monster created by Nilai-Kanai to consume pollution, had returned, with the Barem he produced threatening to choke the world's oceans. They aimed to stop him using Nilai-Kanai's treasure. Commandeering a computer, Ghogo instructed them to take him to the coast of Ishigaki Island.

The next day, the kids found the submerged ruins of the Nilai-Kanai pyramid. Ghogo dove into a small opening, causing a beam of green light to shoot into the sky and pull them into a water tunnel, which ended inside a room with a stone lion. Suddenly, the entire pyramid rose to the surface, allowing Fairy to enter and blast one of the Barem that followed them in. Belvera urged two fishermen she had recruited inside. Dagahra arrived to attack the pyramid, but rays from the stone statues flanking it drive him off. Fairy flew Moll and Lora off to summon Mothra Leo.

After a lengthy fight, Dagahra overwhelmed Leo by generating a hurricane which left him covered in Barem. Moll and Lora tried to dislodge them with lasers from their hands, but there were far too many. After Dagahra dragged Leo underwater, the pyramid statues intervened, imbuing Leo with a temporary burst of strength which allowed him to surface and collapses on top of the pyramid.

The fishermen tracked down the kids and Ghogo, but Moll and Lora arrived to stop them, with Fairy destroying their spear gun. Cowed, they apologized, only for Mikio to grab Kyohei and Garugaru to shoot down Fairy. The door in front of them all suddenly opened. Inside they found massive statues, two with impressive orange gems on their foreheads. Mikio and Belvera retrieved them, only for the door to immediately close. An enormous, regal hologram took form at the center of the room and wordlessly sent Junichi flying with a blast of lightning. The Elias made their cases for possession of the treasure: Belvera wanting to use it to wipe out humanity, Moll and Lora striving to save it.

As Dagahra renewed his attack on Leo from underwater, the hologram explained that both Nilai-Kanai and Dagahra were buried by an earthquake just as the civilization's greatest scientists created a treasure to protect it. That treasure was not an object, however, but Ghogo. Belvera lunged for him, but a force field stopped her. Having crawled on top of the pyramid, Dagahra tried to finish Leo. His weight quickly caused the structure to crumble. The hologram instructed Shiori to bring Ghogo to Mothra, then stopped a statue from falling on them with another force field. The humans crossed a bridge which shattered immediately afterwards, triggering a firestorm. As more doors closed, they seemed trapped, but Garugaru tripped a switch at the last moment, shutting another door and saving them. Belvera acknowledged her sisters before flying off. After they made it outside, Shiori presented Ghogo to Leo. The little creature started glowing and floating above Leo, giving his life to transform him into Rainbow Mothra.

Dagahra was no match for this new form; even when he retreated underwater, Mothra followed him, shifting into Aqua Mothra. After ravaging him from the inside, he dropped him on top of the pyramid, setting off a tremendous explosion. As flames consumed the pyramid, it transformed into water, then collapsed as Mothra flew through it. After the humans made it to shore, Moll and Lora comforted Shiori, inviting her to imagine Ghogo riding on Mothra's wing.
