ComicsGodzilla: Rulers of Earth #5. Gaira appeared for the first time and rampaged years ago, but he was captured. He later was freed by Lucy Casprell so that he could fight Varan. At first, Gaira overpowers Varan. However, when Varan retreats to the ocean, Gaira grabs his tail and does not let go until he disappears into the sea along with Varan. Before disappearing, he saw his 'brother', Sanda, reaching out to him. Sanda then follows his 'brothers' trail as he and Varan crashed into the ocean. The two interrupted Godzilla's search for Manda, Gezora and Titanosaurus as well as scared away Godzilla's meal. Godzilla chased the twins through the ocean. Gaira, in a surprising turn, protected his brother from Godzilla's nuclear breath, running into the city for cover. It wasn't until Gaira's attempt to save Sanda from tank fire did the two resumed their constant battle. The battle was interrupted when the King of Monsters blasted the ground between them, and forcing the two to work together again. Later the two are seen on the new Monster Islands. Gaira was later seen coming to the rescue of his brother when the Trilopods attacked the Monster Islands, being one of the only two monsters to escape thus far. Even though Gaira escaped, a Trilopod mimicking Gaira was later seen in Los Angeles along with several other Trilopods preparing to attack Godzilla.
