Possible Opponents[]


Long ago, an expedition to a quiet island in the South Pacific lead to the discovery of a trio of fairies known as the Elias: the wise Moll, the loving Lora, and the courageous Belvera. The three fairies were the last of a race that predated humanity and worshipped the great moths Mothra and Battra, both created to protect the Earth from all threats. When Moll and Lora were taken, Mothra hatched from her egg and devastated anything that got in her way to save the sisters. However, unlike Belvera and Battra who believed humanity was a threat to the world, Mothra, Moll, and Lora saw them as much a part of Earth as they are and are forced to deal with their kind unless a mutual enemy appears.

Death Battle Info[]

A formidable adversary in combat, Mothra is able to fight in all stages of her life and possesses psychic abilities that she uses benevolently or for defensive. Compared to other kaiju, Mothra is more of a kind and benevolent creature who only causes destruction when acting as protector, from protecting Earth to her egg.

In her larval form, Mothra can spray silk to wrap and immobilize an opponent while using her mandibles to cling to an opponent's tail. But upon entering her imago state, Mothra can fire beams from her antennae, create hurricane-level gales with her lighting-producing wings, and can lift monsters heavier than herself. She can also use her scales to create a cloud of mirrors to redirect energy projectiles to their senders or allow her beams to repeatedly rebound until they reach their target. As a last line of defense, Mothra can use her last round of wing scales to create a yellow poisonous powder that would hopefully asphyxiate an enemy.
