Gigan encounters Little, announcing that he has come to his planet to show that he is the most powerful monster in the universe. He is surprised to learn that Little is a member of the renowned Godzilla family, and even more surprised when the young monster hugs one of his Hammer Hands. Unsure how to react, Gigan resorts to violence, but Little is unfazed, believing that the cyborg has agreed to become his training partner. Anguirus and Baragon alert Godzilla-kun to the threat, and he races to his brother's rescue. At first he refuses to battle, clarifying that he is Godzilla-kun and not Godzilla. Gigan attacks him attacks him anyway, but Godzilla-kun merely endures his blows. Gigan declares that he will continue to attack Little instead, prompting Godzilla-kun to explain that he only avoids fighting because once he starts, he can't stop. After firing his atomic breath into the air, he tail-whips Gigan into a hill. They charge each other, only for Gigan to fall into a hole dug by Baragon. Anguirus quickly rolls over it, burying him, and the monsters celebrate their victory. Trapped underground, a frightened Gigan pleads for someone to fight him.

- Grandpa Hedo: “(thinking) Oh! That's right. There's no need to overthink it. I should answer with an innocent heart. (spoken) I am "Grandpa Hedo" because I am your--”
- Young Hedo: “But that's too boring, isn't it?”
