The Meganulons' name comes from Meganeura, a species of extinct dragonflies from the Carboniferous period approximately 300 million years ago.
Presumably, the Meganulons, like Rodan, are from the Cretaceous Period. They were awakened by mining operations in Kitamatsu village, Kumamoto Prefecture.
HistoryRodan. They were first awakened during a mining operation, and attacked and ate a few trapped miners. They escaped the mine and attacked a nearby village. A team was sent into the mine to exterminate the Meganulons. Shigeru, a member of the team, found an egg in the cave which hatched into Rodan. Rodan ate the Meganulons in the cave until it had enough strength to fly away. Tokyo when it started to ooze. The egg hatched into several Meganulons, which flooded the city and attacked and killed several citizens before molting into Meganula.
MeganulaThe Meganula (メガニューラ?, Meganyūra) were the second form of the Meganulon. They attacked Godzilla to steal his energy for their queen. Godzilla managed to kill most of the Meganula, but some escaped with his energy. They flew to Tokyo and gave the energy to Megaguirus, dying in the process.
The Meganula appear alongside Megaguirus in the third issue of Cataclysm.
