Plot[edit | edit source]

Godzilla-kun announces to Minilla and Little that Rodan will be returning from Aso soon, and Minilla resolves to train to show the winged monster how much stronger he's become. Godzilla-kun meets up with the winged monster, who is carrying a large basket of food. The Dorats butt in and try to claim it for themselves. As Moshu-Moshu arrives on the scene, the Dorats quip that they have "no choice but to meet the expectations of the viewers" and transform into the massive King Ghidorah. He sprays Gravity Beams, sending all three monsters flying. Rodan lures him away from the others, then swings around for an aerial ram, sending both falling to the ground. He avoids another volley of Gravity Beams by hiding behind a hill as Godzilla and Mothra catch up. Godzilla-kun gets Ghidorah's attention with a barrage of rocks, but the three-headed monster retaliates by firing a Gravity Beam at his crotch. Rodan attacks from behind, while Godzilla-kun wrestles Ghidorah's heads and Moshu-Moshu bites his tail. As Godzilla struggles, Rodan lets Moshu-Moshu climb onto his back, allowing her to fire webbing at Ghidorah from the air. While Godzilla-kun holds Ghidorah's tail, she successfully immobilizes him, allowing Godzilla-kun to throw him off a cliff, hurling a boulder at his back for good measure. King Ghidorah retreats into space, and Godzilla-kun enjoys Rodan's fruit with Minilla, Little, Moshu-Moshu, and Anguirus.

The episode concludes with a Grandpa Hedo segment:

Young Hedo: “Hey, Grandpa Hedo. Why do adults have to work and kids don't?
Grandpa Hedo: “Well... Because kids are playing the role of the future labor force just by existing.
Young Hedo: “Okie Hedokie!
