Godzilla: The Planet Eater's Ending Explained

Godzilla: The Planet Eater’s Ending Explained – Godzilla: The Planet Eater ended the anime trilogy where the title monster faces off with a unique version of King Ghidorah, but who wins?

Here’s the ending of trilogy capper Godzilla: The Planet Eater explained. The original Godzilla arrived in 1954 and was a somber creature feature, with the title monster being a walking allegory for Japan being attacked by nuclear weapons during World War 2. Godzilla would return for a countless array of sequels, where he would switch between being a destroyer and a defender. These sequels also introduced famous foes like Rodan, Mothra, and MechaGodzilla.

Despite the enduring popularity of the Japanese Godzilla series, the monster had a tough time breaking into American cinema. A proposed 3D blockbuster called Godzilla: King Of The Monsters was scrapped in 1983 due to studios feeling the concept would only appeal to children. He eventually arrived in the U.S. with 1998’s critically lambasted Godzilla from Roland Emmerich, with fans finding the director’s take so distasteful this version of the monster was later redubbed Zilla. The title monster received a more respectful reinvention with 2014’s Godzilla and its 2019 sequel, and he’s due to have an epic bout in 2020’s Godzilla Vs Kong.

The title creature has been reinvented many times over the years, including 2016’s Shin Godzilla and the recent Godzilla anime trilogy. The latter kicked off with 2017’s Godzilla: Planet Of The Monsters, where mankind evacuated Earth after it was overrun by Kaiju. They return 20,000 years later in the hopes of reclaiming it – only to find Godzilla is still alive and the planet’s environment has adapted itself to suit his needs.

The final chapter Godzilla: The Planet Eater is set in the aftermath of City On The Edge Of Battle, where Godzilla was nearly destroyed by MechaGodzilla City. The Bilusaludo aliens planned to use the city to take down the monster at the cost of fusing themselves and the humans with the A.I.’s nanometal, thereby losing their humanity. Protagonist Haruo puts a stop to this, despite his hatred for Godzilla. So morale is low when Godzilla: The Planet Eater begins since there’s no clear way to kill the monster and the humans and Bilusalduo are feuding; Haruo also finds his friend Yuko is braindead due to her exposure to the nanometal.

Godzilla: The Planet Eater comes down to the main bout between Godzilla and King Ghidorah, who is given a radical reimagining. Haruo learns Metphies, his alien ally from the Exif race, is actually in league with Ghidorah and travels to different planets to prepare them to be feasted on by their “deity.” After all the despair and chaos Godzilla has wrought, it should make quite a meal, and in the finale, King Ghidorah descends through portals and attacks Godzilla. The latter is incapable of defending himself, due to Ghidorah’s intangible form and it starts to drain Godzilla’s energy.

Haruo eventually learns Ghidorah needs an avatar on Earth, which is Metphies. Haruo fights Metphies over his plans in Godzilla: The Planet Eater’s ending, who wants to give his King a physical form. Metphies renders him immobile through telepathy, but Maina – a member of the Houtua tribe and Haruo’s love interest – uses the egg of their “God” Mothra to clear Haruo’s mind. This allows Haruo to smash Metphies eye, the source of his power, which also causes Ghidorah to take form. Godzilla makes short work of the Kaiju following this and defeats it, while Metphies dies warning that Ghirorah will return one day.

Godzilla: The Planet Eater ends with the survivors moving on, only for Haruo to become uneasy about plans to use the nanometal to rebuild society as it once was. Haruo knows this will eventually lead to wars and Ghirorah’s return, so he leaves Maina – who is pregnant with his child – and takes the comatose Yuko in the last Vulture mech. He then takes a suicidal charge at Godzilla who destroys the craft. With this, the last nanometal is destroyed and humanity will continue to exist in a peaceful state… for now.
