Rodan's Roost

Description: Eight years later, another Rodan was seen battling Godzilla in Japan. A small larval Mothra pleads with them to stop their brawl and join her in fighting the real threat, King Ghidorah, but they refuse. The little larva then bravely battles the evil Space Hydra all by herself until Godzilla and Rodan have a change of heart. Together, all three monsters were able to defeat King Ghidorah, and sent the monster back into space where it came from.
