Synopsis for "Makoto's Last Stand"
In the prologue, Makoto Sato is dead and buried. He had vowed to save Tokyo even if it ended in his own death.
After Makoto took control of Mechagodzilla at the G-Force headquarters with his sons Koji and Jiro, they flew to downtown Tokyo, which was being decimated by giant monsters there as a result of the Elias' being away from their temple on Monster Island. While flying over the destruction, they see civilians who are still trapped in the city, and decide to turn around and help them. Mechagodzilla then attacked Godzilla, directing his attention away from a bus with civilians and instead toward it. Jiro was angered by this seemingly idiotic result, however Makoto says he had been counting on it: all they needed now was to reach Ryota Takahashi before Godzilla reached them.
At Takahashi's tower, Oshii informed Takahashi that the Prime Minister's cabinet had approved his ransom of tens of billions of yen, and said there was no longer a reason to keep having the monsters destroying the city. Takahashi however, selfishly said he didn't want to stop the mayhem as it made him the greatest daikaiju, and aimed his pistols at Kou and Oshii after they exclaimed that continuing would be madness. Right then, Mechagodzilla's head crashed into the tower. Makoto walked out and grabbed the Elias and asked his sons to meet him in the streets below. Takahashi had disappeared.
In the streets, Makoto contacted Jiro and Koji who asked them to clear a space for Mothra to land, but they were having trouble with Rodan. They warned Makoto that "the most dangerous monster" was heading toward him, and out of nowhere Takahashi appeared and fired multiple times against Makoto. As Takahashi monologued about his greatness and aimed his gun at Makoto to finish him off, Godzilla stepped on Takahashi intentionally and purposefully. Mothra landed nearby soon after and Makoto released them. All of the monsters stopped fighting and began retreating, following Mothra and the Elias back to Monster Island.
Makoto stood up, relieved, only to see Chief Nakamura holding him at gunpoint. Nakamura at first threatened to kill him but ended up becoming regretful for being bought off by Takahashi. In the moment, he spared Makoto and told him to leave and reflect on what he too had done.
Months later Tokyo was rebuilt, all the monsters were back on Monster Island, and balance was restored. Jiro and Koji visited Monster Island to see Makoto, who had become the new keeper of the Elias.
Carnage! Destruction! Revenge! Tokyo burns at the hands of the unstoppable villain, Takahashi. But don't count out Detective Sato, who has a scheme so crazy it just might work... if he can get past a gaggle of giant monsters, that is! Things don't wrap up any bigger than in this unforgettable conclusion!
"So much for good old-fashioned American ingenuity! After the historic fail of Detroit's latest 'hybrid,' the world searches for something-anything-else to pin its hopes on. Hey, speaking of hybrid... What do you get when you cross a dragon with a couple of other dragons? Uh-huh. Hail to the King, baby, in Godzilla: Kingdom of Monsters #7."
Synopsis for "While Tokyo Burns"
Makoto Sato is at a bar, drinking alcohol in response to a television broadcast showing several monsters destroying Tokyo.
Earlier, it is explained that the Elias were the guardians of Mothra, a monster who kept balance and stopped kaiju from battling each other to keep the world in order. The guardians of the Elias were tasked to protect them at all costs. As a result, they traveled to Tokyo to retrieve the small fairies. Meanwhile in Tokyo, Ryota Takahashi was glad to now be able to come out of the shadows and bring the city down through the Elias. Right then, the guardians of the Elias showed up and asked Takahashi to give them back the fairies. Takahashi refused and shot the guardians before leaving. Later on, Makoto and his son found their dead bodies on the sidewalk. They walked into the bar right then, with Makoto sorrowfully explaining that this was his fault and that he had upended a balance in the universe.
As the monsters destroyed the area surrounding Tokyo, Takahashi was watching it unfold. The Elias told him he couldn't keep doing this, to which Takahashi responded pointing to the deaths of their guardians earlier. Takahashi was interrupted by Oshii and began to ponder about discussing terms for a ransom to save the city. Back at the bar, Jiro manages to convince his father to stop pitying himself and he comes up with a plan. They go to a G-Force training base where they go unnoticed in all the chaos. They spot Koji Sato but avoid him, though Koji still notices them passing by. Jiro, having dropped out from the G-Force after some time, used his knowledge to bypass the security of a hangar that contained something. Right then, Koji caught up to them and surprised them. Koji reached out for the alarm, and Makoto anxiously explained he did not kill his partner. Koji figured that, and only stopped after Jiro told him that they knew how to save the city. Koji warned Makoto and Jiro that there was a reason that the weapon inside the hangar had been retired, and it was because it failed to defeat Godzilla every single time. Makoto paid no attention to that. Instead, he said simply, they were using Mechagodzilla not to stop Godzilla, but to stop Takahashi.
"With the help of Mothra, Detective Sato thought he had the Takahashi crime syndicate on the ropes... but Takahashi isn't going down without a fight! Sato is once again helpless as his son is kidnapped and Mothra is no longer in his control. Never one to give up, Sato decides to just think bigger. But what's bigger than Mothra? The chaos nears its conclusion!"

Synopsis for "Moth and Flame"
Twenty years before the events of the past 2 issues, King Ghidorah attacked Tokyo. During the resulting evacuation of the city, Makoto Sato was a police officer who was directing civilians. His wife Akiko was telling him to evacuate along with her and their sons, but Makoto explained it was his duty to protect the people of Tokyo. Akiko reminded him that he also had a responsibility to his family before leaving.
In the present day, Makoto walks into a car repair shop where his son Jiro works. Makoto expresses that he's disappointed that he's used his engineering talents to repair racing cars rather than do something else. Jiro dismisses his father's comments and repeats what he's read on newspapers about Makoto being dead, wanted, and having killed his partner, even though he admits he didn't believe that; however was angry someone must've wanted that to appear to be the case because of Makoto's stubbornness. Makoto confirms that and explains that not only he but Jiro is in trouble as well. Just that morning, Mothra had wrecked a pier with cargo ships loaded with black market items. Half an hour later Mothra destroyed warehouses Tokyo's crime families had used to store their illegal goods and Ryota Takahashi's shipping company's lot of trucks. At that time, Takahashi ordered Kou and Oshii to find Makoto, who he was sure had somehow been making Mothra target key locations pertaining to his crime syndicate. Makoto explained that he had come to warn Jiro and make sure he didn't die from the war he had declared on Takahashi. He gave him his motel room number and asked him to leave the city and inform his brother of what was going on, and that Tokyo wasn't safe until it was all over. Godzilla peered his head above the water at that time.
Back at the hotel, Makoto checked with the Elias and explained the next step was to go after Takahashi himself. The Elias refused and said that it was not man's place to bring balance, as the only result of that would be chaos. Godzilla surfaced near Tokyo. The Elias then called Makoto's bluff threatening of their lives and explained they simply could not go further. As they were explaining that forces beyond their control was at stake, Godzilla had come to the city and started wreaking havoc. Makoto then realized what he had done and went to return the Elias back to Monster Island. However, outside his door, Kou, Oshii and Takahashii were waiting. Before realizing it, Makoto was on the floor, alongside Jiro, who was brought there by the criminals after they learned Makoto's location from the motel card Makoto had given him. Right then, Takahashi saw and recognized the Elias as Mothra's keepers. He left after telling his henchmen to keep Makoto alive, as he did not want Makoto to miss his taking over of Tokyo.

Sato strikes back at the Takahashi crime empire and the criminal underworld is powerless to fight back against the winged kaiju.

Synopsis for "The Wronged Man"
Makoto Sato is in Tokyo with the Elias at hand, summoning Mothra to help bring the kingpin gangster Ryota Takahashi to justice, clear his name and protect his sons.
Twelve hours earlier, Sato returned to Japan and tries to hide from the police, but quickly gives up on it and heads to the police station. Everyone immediately holds up guns to him and he gets arrested. Soon after he gets put behind bars, the Police Chief Nakamura comes to talk with Sato. Nakamura believes Sato killed his partner and says there are witnesses, but Sato knows that those "witnesses" are nothing more than stooges, and that Nakamura is a stooge as well. Sato drew the conclusion that Chief Nakamura was under Takahashi's payroll since the Chief was the only one that knew where he was heading the night where he disappeared.
Yesterday, Sato and Nakamura were arguing, Nakamura claiming that Sato was "harassing" Takahashi, whom was under the guise of being a legitimate businessman. Sato believes that the new night club that Takahashi is opening is going to be another front for his crime organizations, and that he'll soon have the evidence he needs to arrest Takahashi. Nakamura dictates to Takahashi that he and his partner are going to be on desk duty until he says otherwise, which Sato refuses and leaves. Once Sato is gone, Nakamura calls Takahashi and tells him where Sato is going.
Present time, Nakamura tells Sato that no one will believe him, and that any judge he gets sent to in court will also be on Takahashi's payroll. Sato tells Nakamura that he gave him a chance, which Nakamura scoffs at. Just then, the jail cell with Sato is destroyed, and Mothra is seen flying off. Sato is on the street again, Mothra flying above him, and he retrieves a gun he had stashed prior to entering the police station. After that, he rented a room in a discrete hotel.
Sato tries to convince the Elias to keep helping him, as otherwise Takahashi will continue to be a free man killing many innocent people and the police will remain corrupt. The Elias tell him that they cannot keep helping him as they've done enough already and that his problems aren't the biggest and most important in the world. Sato intimidates them with a gun aimed at them and gets them to explain his plan to Mothra in the present time.
It's the grand opening of Takahashi's night club, and Takahashi is pulled to the side. A henchman tells Takahashi that Nakamura has to tell him something, to which Takahashi says he can wait. Takahashi goes on to talk with someone who owes him money at the night club, a man named Yamane. Takahashi, being told Yamane doesn't have all of the money he owes him, tells him that he will have his left ear and a thumb cut off and that he has 24 hours to come up with the rest of the money. Just then, Kou and Oshii, two of Takahashi's henchmen who were sent to kill Sato, come back from Monster Island alive. They tell Takahashi what happened there. Right then, Mothra flies over to the night club and destroys it with a gust of air. Sato then calls Takahashi, and tells him that he will bring his empire down.
Detective Makoto Sato returns from Monster Island and he's brought some unusual new friends. Heading straight to the corrupt Chief of Police, Sato makes it clear he'll bring justice to the streets of Tokyo no matter what. To prove his point, Sato decides to show off his new partner... MOTHRA! But Sato might be biting off more than he can chew... after all, there's more than one monster in town!

In California, Woods is watching a morning show when a woman comes in and briefly talks with Woods about politics.

When the show starts airing an interview with the cast of "Jerseyfied" about their new film, Woods changes the channel to a news report saying that Godzilla is approaching the west coast of the United States, Anguirus is keeping a low profile near San Antonio, and Battra is in Paris.

"France is in danger when the mysterious egg that washes ashore begins to hatch, but should the military be worried about what's inside the egg or those creepy kids who found it?

Fight! Fight!"
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.
