Giant Monsters All-Out Attack (2001)
King Ghidorah was one of the three Yamato monsters that protect Japan. Two-thousand years earlier, the ancient dynasties buried King Ghidorah, and the other two Yamato monsters, Baragon and Mothra, so they could sleep and grow over a 10,000 year period. In 2004, Godzilla, driven by the souls of the dead from World War II, is aroused 50 years after his original attack. A mysterious, mystical old man then decides to awaken the Yamato monsters to stop Godzilla. King Ghidorah fought Godzilla as the monster rampaged through Tokyo. Wounded by Godzilla, King Ghidorah was able to heal himself with Mothra's fading life-force, allowing him to mature into his full power and combat Godzilla once again, driving the monster king back into Tokyo Bay. Sadly, even with augmented powers, King Ghidorah was unable to destroy Godzilla, and the mighty dragon joined the other Sacred Beasts in failure and death.
