Summary Mothra vs. Godzilla: Godzilla faces off against the benevolent insect monster-god Mothra in this clash of the titans, a crossover battle between two of Toho Studios' most popular monsters-- the last in which Godzilla would figure as a malevolent villain rather than a fearsome hero.
Ghidorah, the three-headed monster: After laying waste to an alien civilization on Venus, the three-headed, lightning-emitting space monster Ghidorah brings its insatiable thirst for destruction to Earth, where fierce foes Godzilla, Rodan, and Mothra must join forces in order to deal with the unprecedented threat.
Invasion of Astro-monster: Aliens from Planet X make an irresistible offer to the people of Earth: let them borrow Godzilla and Rodan to help defeat King Ghidorah, and in return they will provide a cure for all known human disease. But the aliens' duplicity is soon revealed, as they deploy all three monsters in their quest to conquer Earth.
