History[edit | edit source]
Moshu-Moshu assembled alongside Minilla, Little, Radon, Anguirus, Baragon, Gorosaurus, Manda, Varan, and Kumonga to assist Godzilla-kun against King Ghidorah. All of the Earth monsters then charged together as Ghidorah flew directly at them.
Moshu-Moshu, Rodan, and Godzilla-kun were confronted by the Three Dorat Brothers, who coveted the basket of fruit Rodan was carrying. The three Dorats then combined into the colossal King Ghidorah and attacked the three monsters. Godzilla-kun told Moshu-Moshu to bite down on his tail, then pulled her up a nearby slope. Moshu-Moshu flanked Ghidorah and bit down on his tail, wrapping her own tail around a rock to hold herself in place. When Ghidorah freed his tail, Moshu-Moshu began spraying silk at him. Rodan landed near Moshu-Moshu and instructed her to climb on his back, then took flight. From Rodan's back, Moshu-Moshu continued to spit silk at Ghidorah until he became entrapped. Godzilla-kun used the opportunity to grab Ghidorah by his tails and throw him off a cliff, then threw a karge boulder at him. King Ghidorah finally retreated back to space, and Godzilla-kun later shared some of Rodan's fruit with Moshu-Moshu, Minilla, Little, and Anguirus.
