History

Showa Series

Godzilla

Godzilla destroys the Diet Building in Godzilla (1954)

After the residents of Odo Island and an expedition force led by Kyohei Yamane find Godzilla after he rises behind the island's hill, some of the residents and the expedition force return to Japan and tell the government what they had found from within the Diet Building. It is here where Yamane provides his theory as to how Godzilla came to exist. Later, during Godzilla's attack on Tokyo, he travels towards the Diet Building, and walks straight through the west wing, tearing large parts of the building down as he moves through it.

The Mysterians

After Moguera's rampage was stopped, Japan's leaders met at the Diet Building to discuss the recent attacks. There, they concluded that the earthquake that destroyed a village near Mount Fuji was likely deliberate, and carried out by the same force that built Moguera. The JSDF immediately deployed to the Mt. Fuji area to investigate the force behind the attacks.

King Kong vs. Godzilla

After menacing Tokyo, King Kong arrives at the Diet Building and climbs it, somehow not breaking the building in the process. The JSDF roll in, and prepare to fire at the Giant Ape, but relent after it is discovered that Kong is holding Fumiko in his right hand. It is then that they decide to fire rockets containing Soma juice into the air while playing recordings of the Farou Island natives. King Kong falls asleep, freeing Fumiko and allowing the JSDF to take him to Godzilla via a series of balloons and a pair of Sikorsky H-19 Chickasaws.

Ghidorah, the Three-Headed Monster

Following the destruction caused by Godzilla and Rodan in the countryside of Japan, a emergency press meeting is held at the Diet Building, where the Cabinet begs the Shobijin to use Mothra to fight King Ghidorah, who is rampaging through Japan. At the same time, King Ghidorah begins destroying the city of Tokyo with his gravity beams, leaving Tokyo Tower and the rest of the city in ruins.

After seeing that the Cosmos were safe, Mothra crawled to the Diet Building and began to create her cocoon. Hours later, the military and large crowds of onlookers had gathered around the building, and the Cosmos were allowed to go free.
