The MUTO (Massive Unidentified Terrestrial Organism) are prehistoric parasitic kaiju that existed during the Permian era alongside Godzilla's species. Two individuals are known to have survived the Permian Extinction event and lay dormant until 1999, when one was discovered in the Phillipines during a mining operation in which two eggs were found, one of which had already hatched. The newly hatched male burrowed its way to Janjira, Japan. After entering Janjira nuclear power plant, it caused the plant to collapse on itself, killing Sandra Brody and several other workers. There it entered a chrysalis and laid dormant for another 15 years.
The Male MUTO later emerged from its chrysalis. It killed several members of Monarch before flying off over the Pacific Ocean. Eventually arrived in Hawaii, where it dragged a Russian nuclear submarine ashore to feed on its torpedoes. After being confronted by US fighter jets, the male released an EMP, knocking the jets out of the sky. The male MUTO then terrorized Honolulu, where it was confronted by Godzilla. After a brief fight, the male flew off for San Francisco, where it later met up with the Female MUTO, whom it had been calling.
Together, the female and male MUTOs fought against Godzilla and appeared to have the upper hand, however upon the destruction of their nest they were distracted long enough for Godzilla to kill the male with a single, well-timed tail swipe and later pursue the female, finishing her off with a blast of his atomic breath.
