Mothra appeared as a easter egg in Godzilla, with her name appearing on an old aquarium that the Brody family owned before the meltdown at Janjira. The aquarium is only seen when Ford and Joe enter their former home.
Mothra appears in the post-credit scene, along with Godzilla, Rodan, and Ghidorah, in the form of cave-paintings. Unlike the paintings of Ghidorah and Rodan, Mothra and Godzilla are colored white but Mothra is surrounded by worshipers.
In 2009, a team led by Monarch scientist Dr. Emma Russel followed a strange bio-acoustic signature to a previously undiscovered megalithic temple in the high-altitude jungles of China's Yunnan province. A giant cocoon was found within the temple, with a rapid heartbeat detected inside.
