New Guinea is an island located in the southwest Pacific Ocean. It is divided in half by two countries; Papua New Guinea in the east, and several of Indonesia's provinces on the western half. New Guinea is featured in the 2004 Godzilla film Godzilla Final Wars.
During his deployment to New Guinea in World War II, Ichiro Hirata discovered what he believed was a giant opal, and hid it inside the Valley of Rainbows, a giant cave situated on the island. In the present day, he sent three treasure hunters - his brother Keisuke, Kawajiri, and Onodera - to retrieve it. Once there, the locals warned them not to enter the cave, yet they ignored their warnings and went there anyway. Eventually, Kawajiri found the opal, but Onodera betrayed the group, willingly letting Kawajiri get fatally stung by a scorpion, then setting off grenades to trap Keisuke in a cave-in before leaving with the opal, though Keisuke was able to escape. It would later turn out that the impressive opal wasn't a gemstone after all, but rather the egg of Barugon, a legendary monster in New Guinean mythology that was both revered and feared.
After Godzilla was freed from Area G in Antarctica, he swam north to Sydney, Australia and defeated Zilla. Afterwards, he traveled to New Guinea, where the Xilien leader X released Kumonga to attack him. Kumonga doused Godzilla with thick webbing, but Godzilla grabbed hold of a strand of the giant spider's thread and swung him in the air. After spinning Kumonga by his web several times, Godzilla released the thread and sent Kumonga flying over the horizon.
