failed to stop Godzilla. Upon landing in Tokyo, Godzilla simultaneously obliterated Ebirah and Hedorah (Hedorah, the Smog Monster) (Hedorah's location prior to this scene is a mystery, as he is not seen at any other time in the film, leading to the belief he was in the wrong place at the wrong time. However, Hedorah could merely have been making a cameo appearance). Enraged, the Controller sent a secret, last monster, Monster X into battle via an enormous Asteroid in which he was contained. The monster was much more powerful than the previous monsters and overpowered Godzilla numerous times. When Mothra (whom the Controller was also unfamiliar with) arrived in Tokyo, a repaired and upgraded Gigan was sent to destroy her. Monster X and Gigan briefly double-teamed Godzilla before Gigan was destroyed by a kamikaze attack from Mothra. As the two monsters fought, the Controller revealed to the heroes that mutants were the product of interbreeding between humans and Xiliens in the past. He also revealed that he was a Kaiser (spelled as "Keizer" for unknown reasons)- an extremely rare type of mutant who is granted super powers due to the fusion of M-base and human DNA. Kaisers are able to control any other lifeform by telepathic means if that organism has M-base. Ozaki, one of the mutant soldiers, was also a Kaiser, and defeated the Controller in battle. Moments before the Xilien Mothership came crashing down around him, the Controller is seen screaming in anger and agony among the explosions, due to his defeat. Scenes change back to Monster X and Godzilla, who continue to rage in their war for ultimate defeat of the other. After they are both blown away by a massive conflagration when their energy beams collide, Monster X transforms into a hideous monstrosity known as Keizer Ghidorah (King Ghidorah).

Tokyo

Tokyo is the capital of Japan, the center of the Greater Tokyo Area, and the most populous metropolitan area (List of metropolitan areas by population) in the world. url http: esa.un.org wup2014 unup index.asp?panel 2 title World Urbanization Prospects: The 2014 Revision Population Database publisher United Nations accessdate August 10, 2014 It is the seat of the Emperor of Japan and the Japanese government (Government of Japan). Tokyo is in the Kantō region on the southeastern side of the main island Honshu and includes the Izu Islands and Ogasawara Islands. Nussbaum, Louis-Frédéric. (2005). "Tōkyō" in .

Tokyo is often referred to and thought of as a city, but is officially known and governed as a "metropolitan prefecture", which differs from and combines elements of both a city and a prefecture; a characteristic unique to Tokyo. The Tokyo metropolitan government administers the 23 Special Wards of Tokyo (Special wards of Tokyo) (each governed as an individual city), which cover the area that was formerly the City of Tokyo before it merged and became the subsequent metropolitan prefecture in 1943. The metropolitan government also administers 39 municipalities (Municipalities of Japan) in the western part of the prefecture and the two outlying island chains. The population of the special wards is over 9 million people, with the total population of the prefecture exceeding 13 million. The prefecture is part of the world's most populous metropolitan area (Largest Metropolitan Area) with upwards of 37.8 million people and the world's largest urban agglomeration economy (List of cities by GDP). The city hosts 51 of the Fortune Global 500 companies, the highest number of any city. The city is also home of various television networks like Fuji TV and the Tokyo Broadcasting System.

The city is considered an alpha+ world city (global city)—as listed by the GaWC (Globalization and World Cities Research Network)'s 2008 inventory In 2009 Tokyo was named the third Most Liveable City by the magazine ''Monocle (Monocle (lifestyle magazine))''. last Fawkes first Piers url http: www.psfk.com 2009 06 top-25-most-liveable-cities-2009-monocle-magazine-zurich-copenhagen-tokyo-munich-helsinki.html title Top 25 Most Liveable Cities 2009 – Monocle publisher PSFK.com date June 18, 2009 accessdate July 6, 2009 The Michelin Guide has awarded Tokyo by far the most Michelin stars of any city in the world.
