Perhaps what sets SpaceGodzilla apart from the bevy of other intergalactic Godzilla opponents is not his fantastic collection of powers but his cold-blooded nature. In most instances, Godzilla’s enemies are controlled by another entity and not acting on their own will. However, SpaceGodzilla is not bound by any exterior forces, intending to take over Earth and kill Godzilla on his own rage-filled accord.
This is evident in their first interaction. Whereas most space monsters would directly start attacking the city and be encountered by Godzilla, SpaceGodzilla first lands on Birth Island, where he harasses Little Godzilla to provoke the Big G. The tactic proves effective, as SpaceGodzilla manages to weaken Godzilla and traps Little Godzilla in a crystal prison, where the youngster remains until SpaceGodzilla is defeated. It’s a clever move on the villain’s part, knowing that the only way to conquer the planet is to first dispatch Godzilla.
After landing in Fukuoka and using the Fukuoka Tower as an energy source, SpaceGodzilla again confronts Godzilla and MOGUERA. The intense battle is won after the two destroy the tower, and Godzilla uses his red spiral beam to destroy SpaceGodzilla once and for all.
