Description: Ms. Mallinger spent her days being charming and polite, which was easy for her, because her nights were spent in a screaming frenzy for blood! After turning into a giant moth monster she would fly about the countryside in search of prey, but she couldn't fill the emptiness of her heart no matter how much blood she drank. _ Review:

Description: Battra is one of the few kaiju to have defeated Mothra. Battra as an imago (adult form) could no longer swim well or burrow at all, but he could fly at Mach 3. He loses the wicked horn, but was able to focus the formerly inaccurate energy blasts into more powerful and controlled purple prism beams. He later allied with Mothra to beat Godzilla, but the mutant monster made him pay dearly for it.
