Zilla - specified as being the ''Final Wars'' incarnation but having the appearance of the 1998 Godzilla - appeared in ''ComicBook/GodzillaRulersOfEarth'', one of the [[Creator/IDWPublishing IDW]] ''Godzilla'' comics, and fights Godzilla in Honolulu. This time, though, Zilla not only lasts more than a few seconds, but manages to get a few good blows in and ''survives'' the fight by [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere getting the hell out of Dodge when Godzilla is distracted]]. He makes a brief reappearance swimming off the coast of Monster Island, and returns for the final battle to help fight against the Trilopods, holding his own against them.

Added DiffLines:

* ExplosiveBreeder: In the 1998 film, Godzilla lays over 200 eggs, and each of its offspring is capable of doing the same. As a MythologyGag to this, in ''Godzilla: Oblivion'' a panel shows Zilla nesting in the ruins of a city surrounded by hundreds of eggs; and ''Godzilla: Monster Apocalypse'' states that Zilla's greatest strengths are its speed, agility, and ability to rapidly reproduce asexually.

When a pair of miners go missing in the small mining village of Kitamatsu, Shigeru Kawamura and the police enter the now-flooded shaft to search for the two men. They sucessfully find the lacerated corpse of Yoshi, one of the two miners. A doctor determines the cause of death to be an unusually sharp object, and they continue looking for what killed Yoshi; one of the murdered mens' wives blames Goro for the deaths, but eventually he is proven innocent. Eventually, the killer reveals itself as a Meganula; an ancient species of insect. The wounds inflicted by two police officers by the gigantic arthropod are near identical to those found on Yoshi's corpse; the insect was clearly the killer of the men, and not Goro. The creature is still rampant, however.

After a bit of searching, the group find a swarm of Meganula inside the mine, and Shigeru is trapped. The search leads them to Goro's mutilated corpse, and the crew barely escape the Meganula swarm. Earthquakes begin as Doctor Kashiwagi reveals the identity of the insects, as rumors start of Mount Aso's imminent eruption, the volcano of which eclipses the entire mining village. Shigeru, shockingly, survived the earthquake; but has lost his memory.

Meanwhile in Kyushu, several miles away, an air base is alerted by one of its jets to a UFO preforming impossible manouevers travelling at supersonic velocities. The jet's pilot is ordered to trail it, but the object makes a sudden change of course and flies towards the jet, flying right into it and destroying its persuer. This mysterious object is then seen around the world, and eventually a photo of its enormous wing is taken. Though it looks similar to the wing of ''Pteranodon'', the theory is dismissed for how far-fetched it is.

After Shigeru has a vision, the team find out that the creature ''is'' a ''Pteranodon'', after all, and eventually Rodan and its mate hatch, grow and terrorize Kyushu. After Rodan and his mate are finished with Kyushu, they return to their old nest, where a military trap is set off, killing one of the two pterosaurs. The second, whilst it has flown above the lava, flies into the volcano with its mate. Kiyo buries her weeping head in Shigeru's shoulder as he and Kashiwagi solemny watch the two creatures die together, unwilling to live without each other.

Another Rodan would later be seen in a ferocious battle with Godzilla, the two prehistoric terrors tracking the other down and battling. Even when Mothra, the only surviving offspring of the Mothra that Godzilla had killed before, attempted to convince them to help her defeat the space terror King Ghidorah and save humanity, the two beasts were too caught up in their own quarreling to bother with the young moth's pleas; Godzilla pointing out that because humans had attacked them, they would attack humans, as Rodan agreed. The two continued their duel as Mothra, after calling them bullheaded, defeatedly crawled off to try and face Ghidorah alone, knowing the two would probably never aid her. According to the Shobojin, Mothra's twin pristesses, Godzilla was not one for politeness, cussing at the larva and outright refusing her plea.

Ghidorah quickly (and violently) overwhelmed her, volleying gravity beams at the young moth and blasting her over and over. Godzilla and Rodan stopped at once; both of them impressed by her courage and selflessness. The two agreed to stop their battle and focus on the space beast in front of them; and the titanic battle of Godzilla, Rodan and Mothra VS King Ghidorah began; eventually ending in the three driving Ghidorah back into space after Godzilla threw the three-headed menace from a cliff. Rodan would later (along with Godzilla) be kidnapped by the Xilliens in a bid to use him, Godzilla and Ghidorah to conquer Earth. This would fail, and Rodan would be controlled by the Killaks in 1999 and sent to destroy Moscow. After being freed, the pterosaur joined his comrades (Godzilla, Mothra, Gorosaurus, Anguirus, Kumonga, Minya, Varan and Manda) in killing King Ghidorah once and for all.

The Heisei Rodan was mutated by nuclear waste, and drawn to the egg of Baby Godzilla, along with Godzilla himself, where the two would attack each other over the egg; Godzilla eventually triumphing over, and mortally wounding, Rodan. Rodan would later be revitalized by further radiation and intercept a UNGCC carrier, then is once more mortally wounded by Mechagodzilla and Garuda. The pterosaur would attempt to escape while Godzilla and his robotic opponent were in battle; however, Super Mechagodzilla would cripple Godzilla swiftly, then turn and fire upon Rodan, fatally wounding the giant pterosaur. Landing on Godzilla's body, Rodan's energy dissapated as his body dissapeared, his life energy and radiation gifting Godzilla with the Spiral Ray.

The Millenium Rodan is controlled by the Xilians, and is first seen in an assault on New York; his supersonic flight devastating the windows and raining glass upon the streets of the Big Apple. Suddenly, the prehistoric terror vanishes in a flash of light, and the Xilians reveal themselves as peaceful beings who destroyed the kaiju to aid humanity. The aliens are found out and, with their previous leader dead, their new Commander steps up and, in a fit of rage, unleashes the kaiju, including Rodan, to the world. The Gotengo frees Godzilla at the South Pole, and the kaiju are whisked back away; the Commander using them to stall Godzilla and the Gotengo long enough for Gorath to arrive. After Godzilla effortlessly slaughters Zilla in Sydney, painlessly sends Kumonga over the horizon in New Guinea and fries Kamacuras in Osaka, the titan finds himself facing three kaiju; Anguirus, King Ceasar and Rodan himself. Despite their best efforts, Godzilla manages to defeat them; first sending a rolled up Anguirus, kicked like a ball by King Ceasar, flying into the overhead Rodan, causing the prehistoric pterosaur to crash into a nearby cliffside. Anguiurus would be used as a ball some more, before also crashing into the same cliffside as Rodan and falling belly-first on his comrade, too woozy from his extended roll to continue fighting. King Ceasar, despite his best efforts, was also flung into the cliff, and fell upon Anguirus' spiny hide. With the three defeated, but not killed, Godzilla moved on, leaving Rodan, King Ceasar and Anguirus stacked on each other.
