"Son of Minilla" (ミニラの息子 (むすこ)の巻,   Minira no Musuko no Maki) is the seventeenth overall episode of Godziban and the eighth episode of its Go! Go! Godzilla-kun segment. It was released to YouTube on November 29, 2019 and is a continuation of episode 12 of the series, "Fly at That Cliff!."

Plot[edit | edit source]

After Minilla falls asleep hugging Egg-kun in the previous episode, lightning strikes at the tip of a rock formation a short distance away, causing the Three Dorat Brothers to appear. They muse about wanting to eat an egg before flying off and landing next to Minilla, waking him. Minilla tries to protect the egg, but the Dorats use telekinetic powers to pull the egg toward them. He chases after the egg, eventually snatching it from the air and shielding it with his body. Unfazed, the Dorats simply lift him and the egg, slamming him against the ground repeatedly. They then collectively blast him with electricity, leaving him bruised and charred. Thoroughly beaten, Minilla loses grip of the egg and falls to the ground unconscious. The Dorats gather around the egg, but declare that it would be too small for them to share equally, and thus fly away back to the mountain. At sunrise, Minilla reawakens and realizes that the egg has not been taken, running up to it and hugging it in tears. He carries it back to its nest and puts his ear up to it to hear the sounds of crying. The egg soon begins to move and bounces out of the nest before hatching into a baby monster. They watch the sunrise together and are soon joined by Godzilla-kun and Little. The baby runs off frightened before the brothers can see him, but notice the broken eggshell on the ground. He calls the monster back and introduces him to Godzilla-kun and Little, the latter recognizing him as Rodan thanks to Grandpa Zilla. Rodan embraces Minilla, calling him "Mama," which the brothers laugh about before the episode ends.

In the episode's accompanying Grandpa Hedo segment, Young Hedo asks Grandpa Hedo about why humans become so aggressive over the things they hate.
