Fourteen hours earlier, it's revealed that the one who wanted Sato dead was Ryota Takahashi, the kingpin of all of Tokyo's crime families. Takahashi just got done killing Takahashi's police partner in front of him after getting fed up with Sato being an honest detective who wouldn't accept bribes like his other detectives to ignore the crime organizations' activities. Sato tells Takahashi he's a monster, which Takahashi replies to with him not being a "mere monster," instead being a "daikaiju." Takahashi then tells his henchmen to take Sato away, and that, if he thought of resisting, he would kill his two sons.
Present time, Sato wakes up in the house of the Elias, where the Keepers of the Elias say the "soul of Monster Island resides." The Elias introduce themselves to Sato, and reveal that they had sent Mothra to stop Godzilla from killing him. Sato thanks them, and one of the Keepers tells a confused Makoto to rest after explaining that the Elias do "control" Mothra to an extent—they bring balance and harmony to that which is discordant. However, Sato instead puts the Elias in a box and gets into a boat. The Elias ask what he's doing, and say that they belong in Monster Island, to which Sato replies that he needs to bring them to Tokyo to protect his family and bring down Takahashi and the Tokyo crime syndicate.
Detective Makoto Sato is on an unrelenting quest to bring down the Takahashi crime syndicate. Sato's efforts earn him a one-way trip to a tropical getaway, courtesy of the Tokyo criminal underworld. The exotic locale? MONSTER ISLAND! Alone and facing death at the hands of both gangsters and goliaths, Sato must use his wits to survive-and enlist the aid of some most unusual friends.
