According to an Okinawa legend, when a black mountain appears in the skies above the clouds, a monster will arrive and attempt to destroy the world. However, if this divination comes true, a red moon will set, two suns will arise (one being an optical illusion rising from the west), and two monsters will fight off evil to rescue the world. In a cave near the city, an engineer and an archaeologist uncover a statue of a strange lion-god creature, known as King Caesar. He is believed to be one of the monsters to fight for humankind in the prophecy. Later, a black mountain does appear in the sky. Godzilla then rises from a dormant volcano and starts on a rampage. Many people, however, do not believe Godzilla will be the monster to destroy Earth. That reflection is reinforced when Godzilla attacks Anguirus and nearly kills him. In a surprising turn of events, another Godzilla sets forth, only to discover that the rampant Godzilla is an impostor. Later revealed as MechaGodzilla, a robot of titanic proportions that was designed and created by ape-like aliens to destroy the original Godzilla. After Godzilla is beaten green and blue, he retreats to Monster Island, where he is hit by lightning over and over again. Meanwhile in Okinawa, King Caesar is successfully summoned, and prepares to fight MechaGodzilla. The two duke it out, and although King Caesar at first has the upper hand, he is thrown around until Godzilla returns, now super-charged with electricity. Eventually, the rampant mech is destroyed by Godzilla and Caesar. Caesar returns to his cave to rest, and Godzilla returns to the sea.
