As a result of the primordial flaring forth after the Big Bang a cosmos is created, made up of matter and photons.
· 300,000 Years After the Big Bang
A spore composed of unusual protons and anti-matter is born. It will later evolve into what would become the Gudis.
· 11 Billion Years Ago
The spore that is the Gudis becomes self-aware and begins to seek out energy to sate its ravenous hunger.
· 10 Billion Years Ago
The Gudis takes physical form for the first time, absorbing the energy of entire stars to achieve the level of power required to gain complete control of its genetic code. It becomes a ravager of worlds, feeding on the primordial geological energy sources of countless potential life-spawning planets.
· 145 Million Years Ago
In deep space, the Gudis attacks The Land of Light in the Nebula M78 galaxy where a race of humanoid, partially organic "androids" known as the Ultras exist. War will rage for 150 million years and force both the Ultras and the Gudis to continually evolve to combat one another.
· 63 Million Years Ago
The Mesozoic Era, Cretaceous Period. 63 million years B.C.
In this primordial land, something terrible had risen with the sun. From a volcano, an evil not of this Earth came forth to ravage all that it beheld. Anything and everything flees in terror at the mere approach of this horrific invader. Its ominous form looms over the landscape like a demonic shadow as it moves through the jungle.
The devourer of worlds, the Gudis, was here. Since its awakening, it had killed whatever it got its tentacles on. Many dinosaurs, dwarfed by the Gudis in size, were crushed in its coils, including imposing carnivores that had grown accustomed to being top predators rather than prey.
Here, the Gudis had also found some strange worm-like creatures that represented an energy source he had never encountered before. As he came over a ridge, he spotted what appeared to be a huge cocoon spun into a patch of trees. Gudis sensed the same mystical energy emanating from it and slithered forward, determined to crush it and whatever was inside. As he advanced, several smaller forms came into view. Half a dozen Mothra larvae moved in from all sides and began to spray silk at the Gudis.
The cocoon was on the verge of hatching and they had to buy just a little more time. Gudis unleashed a volley of eye beams, scattering the larva. Three of them moved in from behind, spraying their silk once more as two others sprang off the ground, launching themselves at the Gudis' trunk-like body. They bounced off harmlessly as he laughed. Reaching down, he wrapped a tentacle around one larva while blasting another through the air with his eye beams. As he began to bring the captive up to slam onto the ground, the sixth one, which had positioned itself on a nearby ledge, bounded through the air, slamming directly into the Gudis' face, causing him to drop the larva he was holding.
Angry, the Gudis turned his wrath into a volley of beams, sending the attacker crashing down in the distance. He then turned to blast the others that were trying to spray him from behind. Two larvae leapt at Gudis, smacking directly into the back of his head as another quickly positioned itself in front of him. Gudis fell forward, landing on top of the larva that had tripped him. Three others moved in fast, shooting silk into his eyes and temporarily blinding him.
As Gudis righted himself and dug at the webbing, all of the larvae fired their silk at once, hoping to entangle him before he could clear his vision. Gudis sent forth a seemingly endless torrent of beams, ripping through the webbing and sending the larvae flying in all directions.
The Gudis picked one up and began to crush it in his coils as the larva squealed in agony. Another wounded but still mobile grub rushed in, trying to get Gudis to drop his intended victim. The monster threw the crushed body aside and hit his attacker with a point-blank beam blast, blowing it in half. Spinning around, his tentacles grabbed three more. He began to slam one up and down on the ground repeatedly, beating it to death while he slowly pulled and ripped another in two. The third was incinerated by a beam shot.
Something within the cocoon began to stir as Gudis went after the final larva. It quivered with fear but knew that it must protect the entity within. Barely able to move, it tried to shoot a silk strand at the Gudis. The monster began blasting it about the ground. He could kill it but was simply being cruel instead. The Gudis slithered up to the comatose form and picked it up as a bright, blinding light emanated from the cocoon.
The Gudis turned to see a shape rising out of it and unfold a pair of massive wings. As the light dissipated, an imago Mothra hovered above the casing. Its wings were a mixture of brown, red and green, as if mirroring the jungle that was its home. Gudis snarled as he looked upon its strength and beauty. Then he heard a voice inside his head.
“Put... the child... Down!” the Mothra commanded.
"And if I don't?" the Gudis vocalized. He was hit with a beam from the imago's belly that sent him smashing into a hillside, causing him to drop the larva. The Gudis shrieked as he realized that something was very wrong. His body wasn't absorbing the energy that had just hit him. The imago flew over to the larva, fluttering a glowing powder from its wings to heal its wounds.
“You must leave now!” Mothra told her.
“No! I want to stay and help you fight this monster!”
“By staying, you only offer yourself as a distraction for this killer. My sister, you have suffered enough. Please do as I ask!”
The larva reluctantly crawled away. The Gudis looked up at the imago rising majestically into the sky.
“I am Mothra Taros and your path of destruction ends here!”
"Oh, does it now? I am supposed to believe that you will kill me?" the Gudis mocked. "I am Gudis, destroyer of worlds! I go where I please and I kill whom I please. I cannot be stopped!" he bellowed.
“We shall see…” Mothra hit him with another beam blast that put him down again, roaring in pain.
"Two can play that game!" he sneered and returned fire but Taros dodged, circling around to Gudis' side and slamming hard into the monster, knocking it over. As Gudis fell, he sent his tentacles forth to grab Mothra who blasted at them with his beam. As Taros turned to get out of range, one wrapped around his thorax, swinging him around and slamming him into the ground again and again. Mothra managed to fire directly into Gudis' face, causing further agony. When the Gudis was finally able to look up, Mothra was carrying a huge boulder, diving in to release it like a bomb.
The Gudis went down again as the imago rained more beam blasts down from above. The monster uprooted a huge tree and threw it like a javelin but Taros dodged, only to get hit by Gudis' eye beams as the tree was merely a distraction. He crashed down hard as Gudis advanced, tentacles snaking toward his prone form. In an instant, Mothra Taros was enveloped in the coils which began to constrict and crush him. Taros retaliated by blasting the Gudis at point-blank range. Howling in pain, Gudis fired, frying Mothra's mandibles and blowing off one of his antennae. Taros got off another blast and layers of flesh were practically seared from the Gudis' body.
Gudis' beams sliced Taros' left wing off but a return blast blew away part of its face and head, causing further shrieks of suffering. The Gudis then punched one of its tentacles through Taros' underbelly and out his back. A blast from Mothra disemboweled and literally gutted the monster as it vomited up blood.
"It doesn't matter what you do to me, insect! You will have to blast me to atoms before I will let you go!" the Gudis snarled defiantly, choking on his own fluids as he tightened the coils, crushing the imago's insides.
“Then that is what I will do!” Mothra was fighting desperately against the pain. He focused what consciousness remained and his body began to glow a bright green. The light and energy radiating off Mothra Taros' body began to intensify. Soon, it was so bright that the Gudis could not look directly at the imago with the one good eye that still remained on his mauled face. Still, he did not let Mothra go.
"What are you?!" he shrieked.
“I am Gaia's champion and the defender of life. And you... are finished!” The building energy within the imago exploded in unbelievable power.
"No! This cannot be! No... no... NOOOO!" the Gudis bellowed as the blast went off in his face. A small mushroom cloud erupted from where Mothra and the Gudis once were. All living things throughout the jungle ran for cover from the impending shock wave. When it finally passed, there was no sign of Mothra Taros or the Gudis.
The sole surviving larva crept back to the area, having watched the battle from afar. She chirped sadly for the loss of her brother and looked up into the heavens above. Mothra had sacrificed his own life to destroy the Gudis but the demon was not dead. With its physical body destroyed, the Gudis had been forced to revert back to its viral form which now floated back into the depths of space from whence it came. The Gudis would not return to Earth for another 63 million years.
A weakened Gudis reappears on Mars battling Ultraman Great, their battle continues on Earth where Ultraman fights a host of Gudis mutations and then seemingly destroys the Gudis only to have it revert to its viral form and go into hibernation.
Gudis finally re-emerges after nearly 20 years, seeking out new DNA to assimilate into its being. Thusly it gains DNA from the kaiju Angiurus and King Seesar. It makes use of the corpse of the original Anguirus that fought Godzilla in 1956, its spores easily infiltrating a government installation in Japan that contained the body. Then using that form swims to Okinawa and digs King Seezar out of his slumber mountain absorbing him as well.
Within Gudis' body, violent changes took place and with one more terrible roar, an incredible shockwave of energy reeled off him, signifying a horrific transformation. When the smoke cleared, a new abomination stood where the Gudis' previous form was. It looked like a beefed-up version of King Seesar, only far larger and covered on the back, arms and legs with spikes similar to those on Anguirus' carapace. Swinging behind him was a huge tail that was a mixture of Anguirus' and his own.
The head of this new beast looked similar to Seesar's, only with reptilian skin and elongated jaws that resembled Anguirus' face. Protruding all around the torso were dozens of the Gudis' tentacles. It had Anguirus' nearly unbreakable carapace and from Seesar, his ability to absorb and channel laser energy attacks.
But Gudis had augmented these elements with his own DNA, making his armored body almost impenetrable and having Seesar's power to absorb and reflect any energy attack that struck him. It was a combination of all three of them in one.
"Now... I am ready. Alien... kaiju... human... or otherwise, it makes no difference. Let them come," he said as he lifted his head to the sky with a chilling and earthshaking laugh. The landscape around him was engulfed in flames from the flowing lava, creating what would almost pass for Hell on Earth. Gudis was now prepared... for war.
It didn’t take long for the JSDF to respond to the new threat, and Gudis couldn’t have been happier to see them coming.
“Wonderful…some new toys for me to play with.” He snickered.
A full battalion of Type 90 tanks and Type 66 Maser Cannons moved into a defensive formation while simultaneously backed up by Mitsubishi F-2 fighter jets. The order was given as all batteries opened fire on Gudis who some could swear was laughing as the beams, shells and missiles detonated upon him. After taking so much of this Gudis finally returns fire decimating everything in sight until almost every craft on the field or in the air is nothing but a flaming, smoking or melted hulk.
“That was too easy.” Gudis grunted disapprovingly.
“Perhaps I can give you a greater challenge.” A voice suddenly spoke telepathically as something then appeared in front of him with a brilliant flash. Standing before him was his former arch nemesis, Ultraman Great. His appearance, for the most part, was the same, other than it looked like he had bulked up considerably since their last encounter.
"Well, well, well! What have we here? You showed up a lot quicker than I expected. How are you, my old friend?" Gudis snarled, his demonic voice dripping with venom and hatred.
"It has been a long time, Gudis, but do we really need to waste time talking? When it came to me and you, it was never about words," Ultraman proclaimed as he studied Gudis closely.
"Indeed... it never was," the monster hissed, suddenly firing a volley of spiral red eye beams at the silver defender who barely managed to leap over them in time. Ultraman landed directly behind Gudis and heaved back as a large blue sphere of energy appeared between his palms. When Gudis turned around, he let him have it hard in the chest, pushing him back as his feet skidded across the ground, digging huge furrows in the earth. When he finally came to a stop, he looked up at Ultraman and curled his fierce jaws in what for him passed as a smile.
"Thank you," he said calmly as his eyes began to glow the same color as the attack that just hit him. Ultraman crossed his arms in front of him, throwing up a force field as Gudis fired a pair of blue energy beams. They struck and eventually dissipated as the hero brought his arms back down to fire a volley of blasts from his hands in rapid succession. Gudis walked towards Ultraman, taking in shot after shot. Again, his eyes glowed with the absorbed energy. The Ultra sidestepped the beams and rushed in to engage in a physical exchange.
The two titans tried to land punches but kept blocking each other's swings. It was Ultraman who finally connected with an uppercut that sent Gudis flying backwards and landing hard on the back of his head and neck, flipping all the way over and ending up face first on the ground. He slowly got back up with a genuine look of surprise on his face.
"Fifteen years is a long time, Gudis, and I have grown far stronger since the last time we faced one another."
"As have I," Gudis growled as he charged forward with an angry roar. This time, Gudis attacked with his fists and a swarming mass of tentacles. Ultraman moved with incredible speed and reflexes but had to back away from the furious assault. Realizing that he was overpowered, Ultraman ducked low and used a sweep kick to take out Gudis' legs. The mutation hit the ground, sending tremors through the earth. Ultraman tried to pounce on Gudis but his tentacles shot forth to wrap around him. Using the distraction to his advantage, Gudis fired his crimson eye beams which Ultraman blocked with his shield. But as he did so, some of Gudis' tentacles reached around from behind and encircled his legs. By the time he realized what was happening, it was too late.
Gudis jerked Ultraman up off the ground by his legs, lifting him high in the air and violently slammed him back down as if he were cracking a whip. He then quickly reached down, grabbed him by his face, picked him up and drilled him back into the ground head first. If not for Ultraman's highly developed muscles and physiology, the attack would have broken his neck. He then gave him a stiff kick to his rib cage, sending him flying and crashing back down with a heavy thud.
Ultraman fought the pain wracking his body as he struggled to his feet in time to see Gudis charging again. He sidestepped and then cart wheeled behind him, wrapping his arms around the monster's waist as he threw him backwards with an earth-shaking release suplex. The monster landed on the back of his head and neck. As he got back up, Ultraman went into a spin, hitting his ancient enemy with a series of roundhouse punches, backhands and tornado kicks, backing him up with the sheer force of his blows. He focused on Gudis' head, seeing as the rest of his new form was covered in armor and spikes and seemed quite impervious to physical damage.
Ultraman capped this incredible offensive by unleashing his ultimate finisher, the Burning Plasma blast. The devastating energy reeled off his forearms, nailing Gudis at point blank range. The wily creature hit the ground and rolled until coming to a stop in a heap. Ultraman walked over, preparing to hit him again. Suddenly, Gudis jumped up, giving him a straight jab to his metallic face and putting him flat on his back.
"Thanks for the pick-me-up," Gudis said as he returned the attack. Ultraman threw up his force field but still got thrown hard into the side of a mountain by the sheer force of the blast. The timer on his chest began to blink as Gudis advanced once more, firing his eye beams against the field that had already been weakened by the returned Burning Plasma. He finally breached it, resulting in a mighty explosion. The dazed and disoriented Ultra didn't have enough time to react as Gudis launched himself through the air and turned in mid-leap to let his spiked carapace smash hard into Ultraman's face and chest.
After that attack, Ultraman was groggy and on the ground. Gudis reached down, grabbing hold of his chest. One hand held him up as Gudis repeatedly pummeled his head with his other fist.
"Insect! Do you not know what you face? Do you not know who you face!?" Gudis scowled, slamming his fist into Ultraman's head with such power and ferocity that he dented it. He then hit him with a point-blank blast of his eye beams, putting him down again. As Ultraman attempted to rise, Gudis doubled him back over with a kick to the gut. As he keeled over the Ultra found his head positioned between Gudis’ knees as the beast bent over wrapping his arms around his opponent’s waist as he then performed a somersault as Gudis spiked the silver hero's head violently into the earth. His entire body bounced and recoiled from the impact of the pile driver. Ultraman was practically comatose as his limp form crashed to the ground. Gudis nonchalantly walked up and grabbed him by the throat. A blue ooze was seeping from a crack that had formed in the crushed part of Ultraman's skull. Several of his biological and synthetic internal organs were damaged and failing, not to mention countless broken bones he had suffered.
"The mighty Ultraman Great... beaten at last. Ignorant fool! The only reason you defeated me 15 years ago was because of the distraction caused by your human host when I absorbed you. Otherwise, you would have died then! Did you really think you could stand against me now with my newfound power?!" Gudis' eyes began to glow a bright red as he prepared to fire his eye beams once more which would surely finish Ultraman off in his present condition but just then Ultraman Great's timer reached zero, resulting in his physical body dematerializing and vanishing before Gudis could blast him. The brief time limit that is normally an Ultra's bane in battle had saved his life. Gudis howled in fury at the missed opportunity to finish off his old adversary but soon decided that it did not matter. After the damage and injuries he had sustained, it was unlikely that Ultraman Great would ever fight again. Gudis composed himself as he turned to begin his trek across the Okinawan countryside once more with but one evil and sadistically gleeful thought running through his mind:
Sometime later at the Adventist Medical Center in Nishihara Town, Okinawa, a woman and two children stood at the beside of a man who was in a deep coma. The doctors have told her that he could either wake at any moment…or never again. Jean Shindo looks down upon the man she loved, whose name she had taken as his wife feeling a mixture of sadness and anger. Their two children look on with heavy tear filled eyes as they stand on either side of their mother clasping her hands, they were all trying to be strong but it was difficult if not impossible. Upon Jack Shindo’s chest was the delta plasma pendant, the jewel within cracked and useless…he would never become Ultraman again. He had been found near the site of the battle with Gudis unconscious with several broken bones and internal bleeding, in time those injuries would heal, but whether he would ever open his eyes again was a different story.
Just then though a loud buzzing static sound came across the television in Jack’s hospital room as whatever had been on was suddenly interrupted as Jean looks up at the screen.
What appeared to be a televangelist suddenly appeared on every television around the world. A chorus of gospel singers hummed behind the charismatic fellow, slowly swaying back and forth, holding candles in their praying hands. The camera cuts to a tight shot of the spiritualist as the choir fades to silence.
"LIVE FROM NEW YORK, IT'S SATURDAY NIGHT!" he screams. "Well, okay... It really isn't Saturday and we aren't actually in New York. But, I've always wanted to say that! Hah! What did Jim Belushi have that I don't?! In any case, we interrupt your regularly scheduled programming for something violent, offensive, tasteless and politically incorrect!" he goes on before taking a brief pause.
"Well, anyhow... Moving right along, what's more fun than a Nazi with an Easy-Bake oven? What's more fun than kicking a sack full of puppies?! What's more fun than pushing a quadriplegic down a long flight of stairs?! Why, the GUDIS GOSPEL, that's what!"
"I know what you're thinking, friends. What is the GUDIS GOSPEL, you ask? Well, it is four simple rules that are quite easy to understand! You have the right to feel pain. You have the right to suffer. You have the right to experience an untimely death and should you wish to have an attorney present..." the preacher began as his eyes suddenly glowed a bright green. "I'll kill him, too!" Gudis finished with his trademark demonic laugh. He had commandeered a television station at an undisclosed location to pre-empt practically every broadcast still getting out. Using his spores, he had taken control of the necessary humans to serve as his drones, the choir behind him, studio technicians and others. And there was also a live studio audience bound and tied to their seats as well.
"But don't worry, friends. We are not all about doom and gloom here! We are also an educational show. Want to learn about human anatomy?" he squealed as he spun around and punched his right arm into one of the gospel singers. Gudis ripped out an amazingly intact body part.
"See, kiddies? This is a spleen!" he hooted, holding it up to the camera with a wide-eyed grin as the singer collapsed in a bloody heap behind him.
"I know what's going through your mind now! How am I getting away with this without the F.C.C. yanking me off the air? Well, let's ask them! I've got the commissioners right here in our studio audience!" he yelled, pointing as the camera panned around to where they were seated in the front row, bound and gagged. Gudis then skipped happily over to the Chairman and put an arm around him as he removed his gag with his other hand.
"Oh, God! Someone please help us! He's crazy! He's going to kill -mmpf," the unfortunate tried to shout before the Gudis stuffed the gag into his mouth.
"See how much fun he's having?" Gudis grinned at the camera with his arm still around the executive and giving a thumbs-up with his free hand.
"Oh, look! I see someone in need of my healing power!" he suddenly bellowed, rushing up the aisle. He went over to a woman about six rows back, seated on the end. "Do not fear, my child, for the Gudis is with thee!" He placed his right hand on her forehead as she shivered with terror, too petrified to move. Gudis suddenly heaved back and smacked her in the head with his hand, with so much force that he knocked her head off her body. It splattered against the side wall of the studio like an over-ripe grapefruit.
"You're healed!" he proclaimed, turning to smile at the camera with his arms outstretched as blood spurted in the air from the headless body before it fell over and rolled down the steps toward the stage. With the resulting shocked silence, Gudis shot an angry glance at a drone who missed his cue. Synthesized applause booms through the studio's speakers.
"Sing it, ladies!" Gudis howls with his hand outstretched towards them. The choir erupted in a glorious chorus of voices as they danced and clapped their hands together. The camera kept moving back and forth between them and the Gudis as he ripped someone's skull and spinal cord right out of their body and swung it around over his head. On the next cut, he has the skull and spine stretched out and is pretending to play it like an electric guitar. He soon dances up the aisle, shaking his posterior at the camera for a close-up.
"Okay, that's enough singing!" Gudis yelled, suddenly pulling out a Gatling gun. He then proceeded to mow down the entire choir, cutting them to pieces to fall in a mutilated, gory heap where they stood. There are muffled screams from the audience amid the deafening gun fire as he directed it on them, slaughtering every single person in the studio. The Gudis then nonchalantly tossed the weapon aside and rushed up to the camera.
"You know the end is coming, folks, and I, of course have done my own small little part to contribute to the chaos, sure it ain't much but I do what I can. You of course, realize what all this means. WE'RE ALL GOING TO HELL! And who better to take you there..." the Gudis said as the drone he was speaking through suddenly mutated into a human-sized version of his kaiju form. "... Than the devil himself!" he finished with a hideous cackle before ending the broadcast with an ominous fade-out.
Gudis…was just getting started.
Theme song for this story.
'Indestructible' by Disturbed
Gudis finds out the hard way that he has allot more in common with Wile E. Coyote than he would like.
