But it just comes roaring back again

Godzilla is definitely a representation of the wrath of nature. The theme is man versus nature and Godzilla is certainly the nature side of it. You can't win that fight. Nature's always going to win and that's what the subtext of our movie is about. He's the punishment we deserve.

I like nature, no matter what thing that nature does. People ruin nature, so that means nature can ruin people.

If Tuchanka has a temper, Kalros is it.
Urdnot Wrex, Mass Effect 3

So you see, kids, if we're not nice to Mother Nature... she'll kick our butts.
Rocko's Modern Life, "Zanzibar"

"Everyone was warned, but no one listened.

Thousands of years of civilization reduced to ruins and dust in the blink of an eye. Nature had shown her destructive power before, but never on such a scale. Humanity has even lost whole cities before, but we always recovered. Not this time. Pompei, Dwarka, Centralia, Fukushima — hell, maybe even Atlantis — maybe those were warnings. Maybe we should have listened. It’s too late now, in any case.
—"Gaea's Wrath - Post-Apocalypse," The End of the World: Wrath Of The Gods
