“It isn't a phase, mom”

Films: Godzilla Vs. Mothra: The Battle for Earth (1992)

Alias: Battora, the Black Moth

Type: Mystical

Location: Ocean/Civilized Area

Height/Weight: 73 meters and 30,000 metric tons.

Affiliation: Neutral, then Good

Summary: Just a straight remake of Godzilla's fight with Mothra would have been rather dull. So, how about we up the ante by giving Mothra a perpetually pissed brother who has a very different definition of saving the world.

History: While Mothra chose to see the best in humanity, her brother Battra wasn't too fond of it. In fact, he was literally created by the Earth to get rid of a climate-changing device from an ancient civilization, only to then take his newfound hatred of humans too far. In order to stop Battra's rampage, Mothra had him sealed in the North Sea. Now, in the present day, a meteor has reawakened Battra, and now he's going to destroy everything, no matter if Mothra or Godzilla get in his way.

Notable Kills: Nothing special.

Final Fate: Eventually, Battra and his sister come to realize that Godzilla is the common enemy, and they both work together to subdue him. However, Battra ends up plummeting into the ocean alongside Godzilla after the latter mortally wounds him. Worse, Battra was slated to destroy another meteor heading Earth's way. Thankfully, Mothra takes up the responsibility.

Powers/Abilities: Battra as a larva can fire a beam from his horn. As imago, he can fire prism beams from his eyes.

Weakness: Beings of equal or greater power.

Scariness Factor: 4-In contrast to his sister's utter beauty and benevolence, Battra is ugly as sin, and was extremely close to just wiping us all out. And even as a larva, he could have totally done it. Thank God he was the reasoning type.

Trivia: -Originally, Battra was an evil twin of Mothra mutated by radiation and known as Gigamoth. And somehow, he was even uglier than the kaiju they went with.

-Oddly, Battra's roar is a slightly edited version of Rodan's.
