Something has destroyed Birth Island, home of Godzilla and Little Godzilla and soon, it is discovered that Godzilla has developed a bright flaming glow, indicating that his nuclear energy is growing out of control. Fearing that Godzilla will soon explode, the G-Force tries to freeze him, thus cooling his temperature. But another problem arises as a horde of human sized creatures, formed from a combination of Godzilla cells, and the weapon that destroyed the original one, The Oxygen Destroyer. Now the military must try to stop these creatures and stop Godzilla from going through a nuclear meltdown that could destroy the world. Written by

Columbia TriStar Home Video (formally later known as Sony Pictures Home Entertainment) released the film and Godzilla VS Spacegodzilla on home video on January 19, 1999, the first time that either film had been officially released in the United States. TriStar used the Toho dubs, but cut the end credits and created new titles and opening credits for both films. The complete Toho international version of Godzilla vs. Destoroyah has been broadcast on several premium movie channels since the early 2000s to the present time showing on Crackle and having been released on the 2014 Blu-ray.

When the small Destoroyah is blown up in the industrial building, it visibly disappears and is replaced by a badly superimposed explosion and a bunch of see-through pieces flying apart. See more »
Dr. Kensaku Ijuin:
First you come and see me to warn me not to make an Oxygen Destroyer... now you want me to make one?
It's the only way Godzilla can be destroyed now! Every other means has failed! You're the only one who can do it!
Dr. Kensaku Ijuin:
I said I could make one, but I didn't say it was going to be easy, did I? Besides...
Dr. Kensaku Ijuin:
I made an analysis of the surrounding soil. I've seen the effect the Oxygen Destroyer had on it. If it had have been used on the ground, it's quite obvious that Tokyo would've become a ...

The end credits feature scenes from Godzilla (1954) and the Heisei series of films (The Return of Godzilla, Godzilla vs. Biollante, Godzilla vs. King Ghidorah, Godzilla vs. Mothra, Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla II, Godzilla vs. Space Godzilla, and Godzilla vs. Destoroyah), ignoring the other entries in the Godzilla series in between the 1954 and 1984 films, just like the films in the Heisei series did since The Return of Godzilla was a direct sequel to the 1954 film.

22nd installment and still kicking. This is the climax to the Heisei series. It's quite a beautiful climax, and rather poetic in its relation to the rest of the series. It's the first film with strong connections to the original. It brings back talk of the Oxygen Destroyah, which inadvertently created a new breed of monster. Meanwhile, Godzilla goes on a dramatic journey of character for such a big monster. First of all, he is getting close to meltdown, having absorbed too much nuclear radiation, he may be about to explode. This leaves him with a rather interesting glowing look, Also, he may be about to become a responsible father, as he tracks down his presumably dead son. Toho put a lot of faith into a big rubbery character, but he pulls it off. This is the most emotional since the original, and it still has time for awesome action sequences. Part of me wishes I had watched these years ago, as the city destruction scenes must have seemed even more impressive. Still, it's engaging stuff, and the perfect end to this series.
