Famous Kaiju In History 1: Kaibutsu, King of the Kaiju

1954: An adolescent Kaibutsu threatens Tokyo

In the final days of WWII Japan grew desperate for a victory. So desperate that they attempted to summon an Oni, one of the ancient Japanese devils, to fight on their side. The ceremony took place in the city of Hiroshima, and as the demon came through the portal at 8:15 on August 6, 1945 the second atomic explosion occurred in the world. The oni was bathed in radiation and driven insane, and began a mad scramble of devastation. Japan begged the Americans to remove the Kaiju (mysterious monster) it had dropped on their country, which mystified the U.S. until naval observation planes spotted the monster. The Japanese military harassed and herded the kaiju to the tip of the southern island of Kiushu, where it was finally destroyed by the third atomic bomb. Japan surrendered and the American military classified the entire incident, collected all biological samples of the kaiju, and locked them away forever. Or so they thought.

After the first kaiju attack in 1945, genetic material of the monster, code named Kaibutsu, was stolen and taken to a secret laboratory in North Korea. There the monster was regrown at a facility by the Chosin Reservoir. Meanwhile in China, Mao Zedong ordered atomic experiments on his own people to create a “Million Mutant Militia” to defend his borders. During the Korean War, United Nations soldiers led by United States Marines and Army invaded North Korea, pushing the invading soldiers back and approaching the Chinese border.

At this moment Mao unleashed his army of mutants against the foreign soldiers, who fled south towards the Chosin Reservoir, where North Korea unleashed their horrible creation, Kaibutsu, the first kaiju! The battle marked the greatest single loss of life in U.S. military history up to that point , and triggered a host of international laws making all forms of “atomic warfare” illegal outside the borders of one’s own country.

By international law, Kaibutsu was forbidden to leave the sovereign territory of North Korea. But the kaiju knew no law, and in 1954 the monster attacked Tokyo. No one knows why it swam across a sea and around a nation to make landfall there, ignoring numerous easier targets along the way. But in a single night of fire the capital of Japan was reduced to ashes, while the military stood by helplessly. It was only a man-mad miracle of science that “killed” Kaibutsu. But it was clear to everyone that at that moment no force on Earth could stop a kaiju, and no one knew how many existed on Earth.
