Mothra Leo is the son of Mothra and the main protagonist in the Rebirth of Mothra trilogy.


Rebirth of Mothra trilogy

In Rebirth of Mothra, Leo hatched out from an egg prematurely during a battle between his mother and a space monster called Desghidorah, and immediately set off to help her. After a long battle, the two managed to escape, though by that point, Mothra had been badly wounded, and she collapsed into the sea. Despite his best attempts to help her stay afloat, Leo could do nothing as he watched his mother die and sink into the depths of the ocean. Determined to avenge his mother, Leo cocooned himself against a 10,000 year old tree, and then hatched out as a fully grown. Afterwards he returns to fight Desghidorah, now transformed into his flying form, one more time, Leo emerges victorious, and seals Desghidorah away before returning to Infant Island.

In Rebirth of Mothra II, Leo returns to fight the monster, Dagahra, only to be put at a disadvantage when Dagahra was under the water and infected Leo with the Barem, but Ghogo used his power to revitalize Mothra Leo into Rainbow Mothra. Afterward, Rainbow Mothra transformed into Aqua Mothra so he could battle at equal terms with Dagahra. Aqua Mothra managed to destroy the beast, killing him once and for all.

In Rebirth of Mothra III, Rainbow Mothra was called into one more battle with King Ghidorah, but was clearly no match for him, so he transformed into Light Speed Mothra and went back in time to kill King Ghidorah when he was weaker. He went back to the Cretaceous period, and got into a fight with the weaker King Ghidorah and defeated him, but his tail was buried in the ground. King Ghidorah regrew from the tail, and arrived in the present only a day later. However, thanks to two Primitive Mothras, Rainbow Mothra was contained in a time capsule, which was then hatched in the present day and Rainbow Mothra came out as Armor Mothra. Armor Mothra then returns to fight King Ghidorah one more time, and finally managed to destroy him once and for all. Afterwards, Armor Mothra transformed into Eternal Mothra and flew away in peace.
