King Caesar and Godzilla battling MechaGodzilla in Okinawa in Godzilla vs. MechaGodzilla

The Black Hole Planet 3 Aliens established their base of operations under a mountain in Okinawa. In Gyokusen Cave, located on the island, an archaeological dig uncovered the statue of King Caesar, the legendary Shisa guardian of Okinawa and the Azumi royal family. When Kuronuma, the aliens' leader, heard about this, he ordered his agent Yanagawa to retrieve the statue before it could be used to awaken King Caesar. However, the aliens were too late and King Caesar was awakened from his ancient sleep. Kuronuma immediately deployed MechaGodzilla to destroy King Caesar, but before the mighty Shisa could fall, Godzilla arrived and joined the battle. Together, Godzilla and King Caesar managed to behead and destroy MechaGodzilla, while Nanbara, Hideto Miyajima, and Masahiko Shimizu killed Kuronuma and the other aliens and destroyed their base. King Caesar then returned to his resting place in the mountainside, and Okinawa was left in peace.
