Hong Kong is one of the Special Administrative Regions of the People's Republic of China off the country's southern coast.
History[edit | edit source]
Hong Kong is featured prominently in the opening of Godzilla vs. Destoroyah. After emerging in Kowloon Bay, Godzilla made landfall at Kai Tak Airport where he began his attack, nearly causing an incoming Boeing 747 to crash before turning back towards the city itself, decimating it with blasts of his Burning Heat Ray.
Two Category 4 kaiju, Leatherback and Otachi, were sent through the breach to attack Hong Kong. Striker Eureka, Crimson Typhoon, and Cherno Alpha were deployed to kill the monsters before they could make landfall. Crimson and Cherno were destroyed, and Striker was paralyzed by Leatherback's EMP attack. This forced the Stacker Pentecost to deploy Gypsy Danger, who took on Leatherback first. Their fight took them all the way to the docks before Gypsy finally prevailed. While this was happening, Otachi was left to freely roam Hong Kong, where she chased Newton Geizler to a bunker. Before she could kill him, Gypsy arrived to take on the kaiju. After a drawn-out battle, Gypsy managed to kill Otachi and was taken back to the nearby PPDC base alongside Striker Eureka.
Kong continues moving through the Hollow Earth before coming upon a huge stone temple. Recognizing the handprint of his species, Kong places his hand over it and pushes open a door into the temple. Kong roars into the massive chamber, but his roar echoes unanswered. Kong begins walking through the temple, and finds a gigantic axe embedded in the skull of a fallen Titan. Kong pulls out the axe and wields it, beating his chest and roaring triumphantly. Kong then sits upon a giant throne.
While trying to find an exit to the Apex facility in Hong Kong, Madison and the others come upon a room housing Ghidorah’s skull, which has been turned into a biological supercomputer used to control Mechagodzilla. Serizawa sits inside of the skull, in some kind of trance. Meanwhile, Godzilla arrives in Hong Kong and makes his way into the heart of the city before charging and firing his atomic breath directly at the ground.
In the Hollow Earth, everyone disembarks from the HEAVs. Maia asks where the energy source is, just before Kong’s axe begins to glow blue. Kong sees a depression in the ground in the shape of his axe, and places it into it. This causes the floor to glow and pulse with energy, revealing the sought-after energy source. Apex releases a drone to harvest the energy, but Andrews protests, saying Apex cannot simply take the find of the millennium. Maia says they can do whatever they want and has her men aim their guns at the Monarch members. The drone sends the data to Apex HQ, allowing the energy signature to be copied. Simmons excitedly tells Serizawa to prepare himself to pilot Mechagodzilla, but Serizawa warns that the uplink is untested and that they can’t be sure what effect the energy will have on the mecha. Simmons dismisses these concerns and tells Serizawa to get in the chair. When the temple begins to shake, the Hellhawks roosting on the ceiling become active and attack the humans. Maia and her guards enter a HEAV and try to escape, while Kong and Monarch deal with the attacking Hellhawks. Lind, Andrews, and Jia rush to the other HEAV, but they are confronted by a Hellhawk. Lind throws a rock at it, but it only serves to aggravate the beast. Godzilla’s atomic breath breaches the temple, sending the Hellhawk flying and allowing the three to reach the HEAV. Maia orders her HEAV to fire at Kong as it tries to escape, but Kong catches it and crushes it in his hand. Kong grabs his axe and leaps through the hole created by Godzilla’s atomic breath, then begins climbing to Hong Kong.
Madison and the others continue infiltrating Apex headquarters, but are caught by security. Kong surfaces in Hong Kong, and exchanges roars with Godzilla. The two Titans begin fighting, with Kong trying to hit Godzilla with his axe. The axe gets stuck in a building, and Kong resorts to trying to physically fight the larger Godzilla. Godzilla tries to fire his atomic breath but is stopped by Kong. Godzilla frees himself from Kong’s grip, but gets struck in the head. Kong kicks Godzilla to the ground, after which he tries to fire his atomic breath again. Kong shoves the handle of the axe down Godzilla’s throat, stopping the blast. Godzilla fires again, but Kong uses the axe to block it. Godzilla tackles Kong, who embeds his axe into Godzilla’s leg. Godzilla retaliates by throwing Kong into the water, then pulls the axe out of his leg. Godzilla fires his atomic breath, with Kong running through the city to avoid it. One blast strikes Kong in the back, burning him and knocking him down. Kong gets back up, only for Godzilla to fire his atomic breath again and forcing Kong to dodge it again. Kong climbs a skyscraper, which Godzilla knocks over with his atomic breath. The surviving HEAV travels through the crater into Hong Kong, narrowly weaving between the two battling Titans. Kong grabs his axe again and climbs onto a building, then leaps off at Godzilla who fires his atomic breath. Kong blocks the blast with the axe and strikes Godzilla, creating an explosion that knocks both monsters back. The axe loses its charge as Lind declares that it appears Kong won the second round.
Back inside Apex HQ, Madison and the others are brought before Simmons, who recognizes Madison. Madison accuses Simmons of causing all of this, but Simmons says he is proud of having created a weapon to stand up to Godzilla. Kong and Godzilla get back to their feet, with Godzilla dropping onto all fours and hunting for Kong. Kong throws a crane to distract Godzilla, then leaps at him. The Titans exchange blows again, before Godzilla throws Kong into a building, dislocating his shoulder. Godzilla drops onto all fours again and aggressively pursues Kong, who kicks at Godzilla’s face as he tries to crawl away. Godzilla jumps onto Kong and claws into his chest repeatedly, then stomps on his chest twice. Kong weakly tries to pull Godzilla’s foot off of him, but to no avail. Godzilla roars angrily in Kong’s face, who answers him with a roar of his own. Godzilla takes his foot off of Kong and begins to walk away, while Kong tries to get back to his feet. However, Kong is too badly hurt and passes out.
As Mechagodzilla is activated with the new energy source, Simmons brags that his mecha is now Godzilla’s superior. However, something goes wrong as Serizawa is disconnected from the mecha, which becomes possessed by Ghidorah’s consciousness instead. The rogue Mechagodzilla punches into the control room and kills Walter, after which an electrical shock kills Serizawa. Mechagodzilla frees itself from underneath Victoria Peak Mountain with its Proton Scream, then begins rampaging through the city. Godzilla sees his mechanical duplicate and roars before charging at it. Mechagodzilla fires a barrage of missiles at Godzilla, then uses its jet boosters to outmaneuver Godzilla and lands several vicious hits on him. Madison and the others see this taking place, and Josh tries to hack into Mechagodzilla’s control system to stop it. The HEAV lands near the fallen Kong, with the occupants witnessing the battle between Godzilla and Mechagodzilla. Jia feels Kong’s heartbeat slowing and relays this information to the others. Andrews says they can’t produce a charge big enough to restart Kong’s heart, but Lind remembers what Maia said about the HEAVs producing a charge big enough to power Las Vegas for a week. Godzilla and Mechagodzilla engage in a beam lock which Mechagodzilla wins, blasting Godzilla to the ground and badly burning his chest. Lind flies the HEAV onto Kong’s chest and sets it to self-destruct. He quickly exits the craft and runs before it explodes. Kong is instantly revived and looks at Jia, who signs to him that Godzilla is not the enemy. Kong roars in anger, but Jia signs to him that Mechagodzilla is the real enemy. Kong watches Godzilla fighting Mechagodzilla and seems to accept this, then pops his shoulder back into place.
Mechagodzilla continues badly beating Godzilla, then grabs him by the mouth and begins prying his jaws apart. Just before Mechagodzilla can fire its Proton Scream down Godzilla’s throat, Kong leaps onto its back and pulls its head back, causing it to fire into the sky. Godzilla sees this and gets back up, grabbing Mechagodzilla’s arm as Kong grabs the other arm. Both Titans then pull the mecha through a building to the ground. Mechagodzilla gets back up and grapples with Godzilla and Kong. Mechagodzilla is still too powerful and knocks both Titans aside. Kong sees his axe and grabs it, then begins swinging it at Mechagodzilla. Mechagodzilla pins Kong against a building and begins spinning the blades at the end of its tail, trying to shove them into Kong’s face. Josh is unable to hack into Mechagodzilla’s control panel, which locks him out. With all hope seemingly lost, Bernie pulls out his flask and suggests they have one last drink. This gives Josh an idea, and he grabs the flask and pours it all over the control panel. This causes it to spark and explode, making Mechagodzilla momentarily hesitate. Using this opportunity, Godzilla fires his atomic breath at Kong’s axe, charging it. Kong swings his axe at Mechagodzilla’s arm, freeing himself, then continues to swing it until he hacks off the arm. Kong then cuts off the mecha’s other arm, then its leg. Mechagodzilla falls to the ground and begins charging one last Proton Scream before Kong strikes it in the neck, then leaps onto it and tears off its head. Kong holds up Mechagodzilla’s severed head and roars triumphantly. Exhausted, Kong then slumps down.
Andrews finds Lind among the ruins of Hong Kong and helps him through the rubble. Madison runs through the streets and finds her father, and the two share an embrace. Josh tells Mark that the whole thing was Madison’s idea, and Mark simply tells him to “shut up.” Madison introduces Mark to Bernie, who says it’s a pleasure to meet him and asks if he can invite him on his podcast sometime. Lind, Andrews, and Jia sit together, exhausted, among the rubble. Godzilla then roars loudly, drawing everyone’s attention. Kong grabs his axe again and approaches Godzilla, and the two Titans stare each other down. Kong hesitates and then drops his axe, after which Godzilla roars at him before turning around and returning to the sea peacefully.
