The 28th Franchise/{{Godzilla}} film and the sixth and final entry in the Millennium era. Due to the previous films not making enough yen, Creator/{{Toho}} decided to temporarily retire Godzilla with a bang. They brought back many Kaiju that haven't been seen in many decades, a music soundtrack different to previous movies, and a more action-oriented story. Unfortunately, it was the least attended film of the Millennium series and reviews were mixed. Some criticized it for not developing the story and characters enough while others lauded it for being a fun celebration of the King of the Monsters.

In an act of desperation, the remaining EDF members and their allies decide to free Godzilla. With their [[MilitaryMashupMachine flying submarine battleship]] [[Film/{{Atragon}} Gotengo]], they guide him across the world, where he makes short work of the monsters; first [[CurbStompBattle trouncing Zilla in Sydney]], than facing Kumonga in New Guinea. He duels Kamacuras in Osaka, Anguirus, Rodan and King Ceasar at Mount Fuji, Ebirah and Hedorah on the outskirts of Tokyo and finally arrives in Tokyo proper. As the mutants take their battle to the Xilians, though, Godzilla faces Monster X in Tokyo, who proves himself to be very powerful indeed, even mutating into a quadrapedal, golden beast known as Monster X-II, or Kaiser Ghidorah...
