Godzilla Raids Again[edit | edit source]

While Shoichi Tsukioka searched for Godzilla in his plane, his search brought him north of the Kuril Islands into the Sea of Okhotsk. His girlfriend and radio operator Hidemi warned him that he would be entering Soviet territory, but Tsukioka stubbornly continued his search. He soon saw Godzilla swimming toward the uninhabited Kamiko Island, where he came ashore. Tsukioka reported Godzilla's position, with his colleague Koji Kobayashi flying to the island to relieve Tsukioka. Tsukioka met with the JSDF, who formulated an attack plan. Fighter jets assaulted Godzilla on the island, but their bombs had no effect on the creature. As Godzilla tried to leave the island, Kobayashi bravely flew at him, only for his plane to be set ablaze by the monster's atomic breath and crash into the icy slopes of the island. While devastated by his friend's death, Tsukioka realized that they could trap Godzilla on the island by causing an avalanche. The jets began bombarding the slopes of the island, but their bombs were not effective in causing the desired effect. The jets returned to base to load up with missiles while ground units placed explosive barrels on the shore of the island to hold Godzilla at bay. The jets soon returned and began firing their missiles at the slopes, causing an avalanche that buried Godzilla up to his head. Tsukioka then made a final daring assault, launching missiles at the slopes and triggering a final avalanche that buried Godzilla completely beneath the ice.

King Kong vs. Godzilla[edit | edit source]

Seven years later, the chunk of ice Godzilla was buried within broke off from Kamiko Island and began floating southward toward Hokkaido. As the iceberg entered warmer waters, it gradually began to thaw until Godzilla broke free of the ice once again after destroying the American submarine Seahawk as he began his escape from the iceberg.
