Godzilla battles Scylla in Rome

In 2027, Scylla attacked Italy's capitol city of Rome, where she was confronted by Godzilla. The two Titans charged at each other before Godzilla grabbed her by the legs and threw her into the Victor Emmanuel II Monument. Godzilla pounced on Scylla, but she bound the King of the Monsters' mouth with the tentacles on her face, halting his attack. However, Godzilla charged his atomic breath, and blasted it down her mouth, killing the Titan. Afterwards, Godzilla went to rest in the Colosseum. However, when he detected the distress call from the Iwi in the Hollow Earth, Godzilla prepared for the return of an ancient threat, advancing through the Tiber River.

After the defeat of the Skar King, Godzilla returned to Rome, resting in the Colosseum once more.


Godzilla: Rage Across Time

Following Zeus' costly defeat of Godzilla after the latter had killed the other Greek gods in an attack that resulted in the destruction of Mount Olympus, the former god of lightning had been living among humans as a mortal in the city of Pompeii in Italy. There, Zeus wrote down his tale and drew an illustration of Godzilla. In 79 A.D., Godzilla emerged from Mount Vesuvius, triggering the infamous eruption that buried the ancient city in ash, killing Zeus in the process.

In 218 B.C.E., General Hannibal Barca clashed with Roman legions as he made his way through the Alps when Godzilla attacked them. Hannibal and his mercenaries, who had barely survived the fight, rested as their leader sought a northern entrance to Rome before they were ambushed by the Roman soldiers. Godzilla attacked them both once again, thus Hannibal and the Carthaginians found the chance to retreat into a ravine leading to a northern mountain pass. There, they prepared an attack on Godzilla by heating up vinegar barrels. Hannibal had his men launch the attack and aggravated Godzilla into firing his atomic breath on the heated vinegar, causing an explosion that buried the King of the Monsters underneath parts of a mountain, paving the way for his march on Rome.

In 2016, Benjamin Thompson and Nikki Kasumi examined both Pompeii and the Alps as they visited various historic sights around the world, each hinting at the role Godzilla and other kaiju had in shaping the history of the Earth and humankind.

Godzilla x Kong: The Hunted

After having attacked the Kudankulam Nuclear Power Plant in India and the United Kingdom Nuclear Labs, Scylla next attacked the Aviano Air Base in Italy to feed on nuclear energy from warheads stored secretly within the American air base, with Godzilla in pursuit of the Titan. The Titan Truth Podcast host Bernie Hayes inferred that she was either preparing to reproduce or challenge Godzilla; in either case, Godzilla seemed to have deemed her a threat to the natural order for her actions.

Some time after, Scylla attacked Rome, with Bernie Hayes remarking on how the "Eternal City" would not fair well from her rampage. However, Godzilla at last intercepted her, and the two began to battle in Italy's capitol city.


GODZILLA: Project Mechagodzilla

A large group of Rodans would overtake the Italian Peninsula, claiming it as their hunting grounds. The Pteranodon kaiju would attack Rome during this raid.

Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire - The Official Movie Novelization

Godzilla's battle with Scylla was retold, also revealing what had ultimately led to Godzilla's decision to kill Scylla prior to their final fight: the King of the Monsters had considered her one that would not remain in her place.
