The chapters are:
- Chapter 1: Earth & Mars
- Chapter 2: Pathos
- Chapter 3: Trance
- Chapter 4: Dementia
- Chapter 5: Entropy
- Chapter 6: Extus
- Chapter 7: Zenith
- Chapter 8: Finale
Zach is the main character of the NES Godzilla creepypasta. He was a big Godzilla and NES fan when he was a kid. He got Godzilla: Monster of Monsters for his 10th birthday and loved the game. A year later, he traded the game away, and got one again from a friend of his as an adult. During the time without the game, he was friends with a young woman named Melissa, who he looked after. Years later, as an adult, Zach got Godzilla: Monster of Monsters from a friend of his and played the game, learning and seeing shocking things. Near the end of the creepypasta, Zach almost got killed by Red until he got saved by Melissa and fought for his life with Acacius.

Solomon is a blue-furred, winged creature with a skeleton-like face that was one of the monsters that Zach played as. Face gave Solomon to Zach in Extus after he answered "Yes" on a question that went "WOULD YOU LIKE A NEW MONSTER?". He was the strongest monster before Acacius, but was easily killed by Red's final form. Melissa revives him along with Face, Anguirus, Mothra and Godzilla. Solomon has an unknown backstory with Red, and they are nemesis. Solomon later reappeared in Colossal Kaiju Combat as a playable monster.

Weight: 66,000 metric tons
Red, also known as Shadow of Red and The Hell Beast, is the main antagonist of the NES Godzilla Creepypasta. Red claims to have killed Melissa, and he has an unknown backstory and rivalry with Solomon. Red appears at the end of every world, and usually his level involves running away from him with Anguirus, Mothra or Godzilla in Hell. Red appears as a boss in the final level of the game, with four forms, his land form, his water form, his flying form, and finally, his final Red form. Red devours Mothra in his flying form and paralyzes Zach on his seat so he can't turn off the game, and creates a life-or-death situation with him. Red kills Solomon, then he kills Anguirus, and he finally devours Godzilla. Red says "GAME OVER", but Melissa saves Zach and unlocks Acacius, which ultimately defeats Red with his life bar down to nearly nothing. Melissa revives Face, Solomon, Mothra, Anguirus and Godzilla, and says they are grateful for this. Red later reappeared in Colossal Kaiju Combat as a playable monster.
WE WILL BE TOGETHER AGAIN
Melissa used to be Zach's girlfriend. She suffered from some kind of mental disorder that caused her to go into "episodes." One night she didn't say anything and she just stared directly at the moon. Then, she suddenly sprung up, and ran right into traffic. She got hit by a truck, and was killed that night. She returned to save Zach from Red, who was going to kill him. Melissa unlocked Acacius for Zach to use against Red and later revived Face, Solomon, Mothra, Anguirus, and Godzilla when Zach beat Red.
ACACIUS - THE GOLDEN LIGHT
Acacius is the strongest monster in the Godzilla Creepypasta, however, Acacius barely managed to defeat Red, almost costing Zach his life. Acacius was hidden in a corner of the last map and was not unlockable until after Melissa saves Zach from Red.
WILL YOU MISS ME?
Face is a face that asked questions to Zach when he entered the question marks. Face made 24 different expressions. The questions that face asked were yes or no questions, and he would make an expression every time Zach answered, but the answer would have no effect on the expression Face was going to make. Face asks that if Zach will miss him, and then Zach gets back to the board. In the next world when he enters the trivia level, Face is covered in blood and is dead, existing only as a skull. Melissa later revives him along with Solomon, Anguirus, Mothra and Godzilla.
Godzilla appeared in the game as he was a real playable character in Godzilla: Monster of Monsters. He goes through many levels and most of the worlds. Face takes away Godzilla and Anguirus and leaves only Mothra for Zach to use. Godzilla eventually gets eaten by Final Red but gets revived by Melissa.
Mothra appeared in the game as she was a real playable character in Godzilla: Monster of Monsters. She goes through many levels and all the worlds. In Dementia, Face takes away Godzilla and Anguirus in Entropy and leaves only Mothra for Zach to use. Mothra eventually gets eaten by Red's flying form but gets revived by Melissa.
Anguirus doesn't appear as a playable character in Godzilla: Monster of Monsters through normal means, but he is playable in the creepypasta's game. Face gave Anguirus to Zach in Dementia. He is a fast monster that can roll up into a ball and attack, as well as swim easily. Face takes away Godzilla and Anguirus in Entropy and leaves only Mothra for Zach to use. Anguirus eventually gets killed by Final Red but gets revived by Melissa.
Monsters that never appeared in Godzilla: Monster of Monsters but were added to Zach's game. These monsters do not have "Not-versions" of themselves.
Titanosaurus appears in Mars. He was taller than Godzilla and was not glitchy. The battle used Gezora's theme.
Biollante appeared in Pathos. Zach noted how the movie she first appeared in didn't come out until one year after this game was released, concluding she might have originally been in the game to promote the upcoming film. She started out in rose form and then evolved into her final form, with the ability to fire her corrosive sap. She had Hedorah's theme.
Orga appeared in Trance. Zach noted that the movie he first appeared in wasn't released until eleven years after this game was released, making it impossible that the cartridge he was playing on was some sort of prototype. Orga's primary attacks where a punch and a beam from his shoulder cavity. But once Zach had got him down to half his health, he would expand his jaws and try to swallow Godzilla, in the process stealing his health and energy. The battle used Baragon's and Moguera's theme.
Maguma appeared as a mini-boss in the Tundra level in Dementia. Maguma's fighting tactics were very simple; he had a freeze beam, and he could charge into Zach. Maguma didn't die when Zach defeated him, instead he turned his tail and retreated.
Manda appeared in Dementia. When she realized one tactic was ineffective against Zach, she would immediately change to a different one. Manda used attacks such as spitting fire, biting, and constricting. The Atragon appeared in Zach's battle with her and tried to help, but was easily destroyed by Manda. The battle used Varan's theme.
SpaceGodzilla appeared in Dementia. SpaceGodzilla would use his energy to create 2 flying crystals, which would reach the ground and become crystal spires. These spires blocked Zach from reaching SpaceGodzilla, but they also allowed SpaceGodzilla to constantly recharge to full energy, and blast Zach with a deadly fully charged Corona Beam until Zach broke the spires. SpaceGodzilla would eventually drain his own spires of energy until they shattered, but waiting for that to happen would drain your life. Atomic breath beams actually seemed to re-energize the spires, so Zach had to use physical attacks. SpaceGodzilla does everything in his power to knock Zach back to the left corner of the screen, so he can create more spires. The battle used MechaGodzilla's theme.
The Giant Condor appeared in a level in Entropy as a regular enemy.
Battra appeared in Entropy. He appeared in both Larval and Imago forms. Larva Battra fought in a similar fashion as Maguma did, charging back and forth and occasionally firing off lightning from his horn. Imago Battra is much like fighting a clone Mothra, although Battra is distinctly faster and stronger. After Battra changed into his Imago stage, he now had a powerful eye beam. Battra could change direction just like Mothra could, so Zach's fight with Battra involved a lot of flipping and flying around. The battle used Varan's music.
Megalon appeared in Entropy. He was a lot like Moguera, but faster, and with more weapons. He started out his fight with Zach by charging off with his drills. After a few seconds, he'd step back, turn around and start spitting out grenades, which would bounce when they hit the bottom of the screen. Afterwards, he started spamming his lightning beam, which only went straight forward. The battle used Gigan's music.
Gorosaurus appeared in Extus. Gorosaurus had no projectile attacks, or anything else that could match Solomon's claws. But Zach kept the fight going just long enough to see if Gorosaurus would use his iconic Kangaroo Kick, which he did. The battle had Gezora's music.
Kumonga appeared in Extus. He attacked Godzilla by jumping on him, stabbing with his mandibles, and using his signature webbing stream to paralyze Zach's monster. Once his opponent was webbed, Kumonga would sometimes take the opportunity to attack, but it was mostly a way to buy time. The battle had Hedorah's theme.
The Heisei King Ghidorah, called "King Ghidorah" in the creepypasta (in Godzilla: Monsters of Monsters, the Showa Ghidorah was simply called "Ghidorah"), appeared in Zenith. He first battled as King Ghidorah and later transformed into Mecha-King Ghidorah. The battle used the same theme as the original Ghidorah battle, while the Mecha-King Ghidorah battle used the latter's theme from the SNES game Super Godzilla.
Destoroyah appeared in Zenith with all of his forms. Each form had more health, more attacks and was harder than the previous one. Microscopic Destoroyah took one hit from Anguirus. Juvenile Destoroyah took a few more hits and also had a few attacks. Aggregate Destoroyah had more hits and had large arms and a micro-oxygen beam. When flying Destoroyah appeared, Zach used Mothra. Destoroyah entered his final form sooner than expected and Zach had to avoid his attacks and wait until the timer ran out. Final form Destoroyah was very resistant to taking damage and was very powerful. Zach used Godzilla, Anguirus and Solomon to fight Perfect Destoroyah. On his last life bar, Destoroyah tried to counter-attack with a large beam from his floral-patterned chest. However, before Destoroyah could release the attack, Godzilla clawed Destoroyah's chest and defeated him. The battle used Ghidorah's theme.
Not-Monsters are the name Zach gives to the grotesque monsters that replace all of the original enemy monsters from Godzilla: Monster of Monsters.
Moguera's replacement first appeared in Pathos.
Gezora's replacement first appeared in Pathos.
Varan's replacement first appeared in Trance.
Hedorah's replacement first appeared in Trance.
Baragon's replacement first appeared in Dementia.
Gigan's replacement first appeared in Dementia.
MechaGodzilla's replacement first appeared in Entropy. It started out as Fake Godzilla, then turned into a normal MechaGodzilla, and then transformed into Not-MechaGodzilla.
Chimera is what the Dorat (Showa King Ghidorah's replacement) transformed into after Zach killed it with two hits. All Not-Monsters had to be fought before the Chimera, and its body was made of the other monsters' bodies.
A sequel for the creepypasta, titled Godzilla: Replay, is in the works. The story focuses on another person named Carl, who got the game after Zach sold it on eBay. The game seems to have changed from when it was in Zach's hands.
