HISTORY: The Warlords of the planet Mega have been at war with their rival planet, Beta, for centuries. Due to the overwhelming loos of life and depletion of their planets' resources, the two planets entered in a contract to battle each other indirectly. The Betans and the Megans began to capture immense "monsters" from planets in the dawn of life to use as war-monsters. Due to exhausting supplies of early life forms, they actually eliminated the potential for life on a dozen different worlds. The Betans sought to end the war, but the Megans had no such desire, and continued.
The Betans suffered immense losses in a massive war, which all but destroyed the Betans and their Beasts. They managed to keep this a secret, allowing the Megans to believe the balance of power was still maintained. In order to replenish the raw materials they believed necessary to conquer the Betans, the Megans decided to conquer and plunder the planet Earth. They sent three powerful Mega Monsters to prepare the way for their conquest. As part of this plan, the Mega Monsters were sent to first engage the most powerful entities on Earth.
The Mega Monsters ended up in battle with Godzilla and Red Ronin. Red Ronin was decapitated by Rhiahn early in the battle, after which the Megans further enhanced the Mega Monsters powers with their Energex ray. Nonetheless, Godzilla eventually triumphed, slaying Krolar, Rhiahn, and Triax. The Megans, realizing their effort to gain a strategic location and supplies had failed, began to consider terminating the war, as well.
