Description: The Kilaakians attack humanity using Earth's own daikaiju (giant monsters) against it! Anguirus, Baragon, Godzilla, Gorosaurus, Kumonga, Manda, Minilla, Mothra Larva, Rodan, and Varan's combined forces would have been unstoppable if not for the destruction of the lunar control base that sent them orders. Finally free, the monsters kaiju-piled on poor King Ghidorah, pounding him deep into the dirt.

Description: Grand King Ghidorah has powers never seen before or since. Each of his wings can fire six electric bolts, and his gravity field is so strong that he can fly without wings at all. His scales can form a protective projectile barrier from their own energy. Not only does he have mind control powers, he has the ability to project a strange restraining dome covered in ethereal tentacles that corrode anything that tries to escape. The Grand King teleports smaller beings (like humans) into the dome to feed on their life force, as if they were batteries. This mighty monster was defeated by Armor Mothra.
