The flag of the United States of America, as seen in the U.S. version of Mothra vs. Godzilla.

The United States of America is the second largest country in North America, comprised of 50 states and a federal district.

The United States was one of the main members of the allies in World War II, allied with the United Kingdom, the Soviet Union and France. The U.S. became entangled in the war after the attacks on Pearl Harbor (in Hawaii) by Japan's Imperial Navy, and the two countries became two of the strongest nations in the fight. The U.S. ended WWII by dropping nuclear bombs on the Japanese military cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, which resulted in mass destruction and many deaths.

Several years later in 1954, America was carrying out a nuclear test codenamed Castle Bravo. Fallout from this test at the Bikini Atoll drifted over a Japanese fishing boat called the Daigo Fukuryu Maru (Lucky Dragon No. 5), and led to its occupants suffering from radiation sickness shortly after returning to Japan. It was these two bombs, plus the later test and the resulting horror and destruction that led to the idea for Godzilla.

History[edit | edit source]

Destroy All Monsters[edit | edit source]

As part of the Kilaaks' invasion, they unleashed Godzilla on New York City.

GODZILLA (1998)[edit | edit source]

Godzilla migrated from its French Polynesia home to New York City to find a place to lay eggs, engaging in a cat and mouse game with the US Military. After the nest of newly hatched Baby Godzillas was discovered in Madison Square Garden and destroyed, the enraged Godzilla was lured to the Brooklyn Bridge where it was trapped and killed with twelve missiles from a squad of F-18 Hornets.

Godzilla Final Wars[edit | edit source]

Rodan attacked New York City as part of the Xiliens' invasion, while Kumonga was unleashed in Arizona's Monument Valley. The Rumbling was used to intercept Rodan but was destroyed.

Godzilla (2014)[edit | edit source]

When the male MUTO left the Janjira power plant in Japan, it attacked a nuclear submarine and made landfall on Hawaii's Big Island to eat the radioactive material in peace in the tropical jungles. Monarch and the US Military engaged the creature, only to drive it towards the Honolulu airport. On the hunt for the creature after hearing its calls, Godzilla arrived on the island's shores, causing a tidal wave to sweep through the city streets. After fighting through the night, the male MUTO retreated and began following the mating calls of a female clutchmate, with Godzilla giving chase. This female MUTO, which had spent 15 years dormant in the Yucca Mountain Nuclear Waste Repository in Nevada, proceeded to destroy Las Vegas and make her way along the California coast, with the three kaiju converging onto San Francisco. Battling into the night, Godzilla triumphed over the two monsters and swam out to sea in the morning.

Cloverfield[edit | edit source]

A monster attacked New York City, destroying many landmarks like the Statue of Liberty and the Brooklyn Bridge. The creature was attacked by the military with tanks and B-2 Spirit Stealth Bombers to little effect. As a last resort, the military leveled the city with a massive airstrike called the Hammerdown Protocol.

Godzilla: King of the Monsters[edit | edit source]

In the years that followed Godzilla's bout with the MUTOs in San Francisco, the city was left abandoned, and eventually became a lush rainforest, overrun with vegetation that grew to anomalous sizes as a result of residual radiation in the area.

After King Ghidorah survived the Oxygen Destroyer and recovered from a decapitation delivered by Godzilla in Isla de Mara, Mexico, he used his Alpha cry to awaken the slumbering Titans to destroy human civilization. The United States's awakened Titans included Scylla in Sedona, Arizona, a Queen MUTO in Hoboken, New Jersey, Tiamat in Atlanta, Georgia's Stone Mountain, and Abbadon in Devil's Tower National Monument in Wyoming. King Ghidorah would then proceed to fly north into the United States and attacked Washington, D.C. with Rodan before Madison Russell used the Orca to broadcast a signal from Boston's Fenway Park to calm the Titans and lure them over there. Boston would serve as the battlefield for Godzilla and Mothra's final showdown with the three-headed monster and Rodan. When Godzilla emerged triumphant from using his Burning Godzilla form to destroy King Ghidorah and most of the city with it, Rodan, Scylla, the Queen MUTO, Brazil's Behemoth and Germany's Methuselah would bow down in respect to the rightful King of the Monsters.

Godzilla vs. Kong[edit | edit source]

As Apex Cybernetics continued to develop the technology that would eventually be used in Mechagodzilla, they drew Godzilla's ire, and he came ashore at Pensacola in Florida to ravage one of their facilities, killing many people in the process and inflicting severe damage to the facility. Following Godzilla's attack, the United States Navy were sent to conduct a search for him, employing several naval vessels and a detachment of McDonnell Douglas F/A-18E Super Hornets to carry out the mission. Another fleet of ships were utilised to transport Kong to Antarctica as part of the mission to enter the Hollow Earth, though the fleet sustained substantial losses after Godzilla emerged to attack Kong in the Tasman Sea off the coast of Australia.

Books[edit | edit source]

Godzilla: Monster Apocalypse[edit | edit source]

Kamacuras attacked New York in 1999 and Godzilla Earth attacked the West Coast of the United States in 2030. A nuclear strike powerful enough to severely damage multiple states in the southeast of the U.S. was launched against him as he marched east, but failed.
