History

MonsterVerse

Godzilla

At least one F-35 of the US Navy was sent to Honolulu to track down a Russian submarine that had gone missing in the Pacific Ocean off the coast of Hawaii; it was brought down by the male MUTO's electromagnetic pulses. Additional F-35s were later deployed in large numbers to San Francisco to battle against both MUTOs; large numbers of the aircraft were downed by electromagnetic pulses, crashing into the city or into San Francisco Bay.

Godzilla: King of the Monsters

After Rodan broke free of his containment at Isla de Mara, A group of Monarch F-35s codenamed Gold Squadron was launched from the USS Argo in an attempt to distract him and lure him away from attacking citizens still evacuating the island's city. A squadron of U.S. Navy F/A-18 Hornets assisted the F-35s in attacking Rodan, but as Rodan began to pursue the Argo, he proceeded to use his abilities to destroy all the jets as he gave chase, including the entirety of Gold Squadron.

Additional F-35s took part in the final battle between the Titans in Boston.
