They appear alongside Mothra in every film he's in, their inclusion probably being to explain everything to the other characters. I used to dislike them as a kid but they've grown on me throughout the years.

What?! How can anyone not like the tiny twin fairies?

The original Mothra fairies were twin singers who went under the stage name of The Peanuts and were fairly successful. They are both deceased now, alas.

I just kind of wish they weren't faries. If they were telepathic fully grown twins it might've been a bit more believable, but in terms of this film, it's the least of the weird stuff you have to accept. The Venus abducted princess element was even stranger to me. I found the faries weirder in the original Mothra film, because that film is almost an echo of the original Godzilla, in terms of being a monster discovered that a small village knows about but the rest of the world doesn't. It seems gritty and dark, and I really love it for being quite similar to the original Godzilla film in terms of inevitability, but those faries just really take the realism down a few notches. Koalas are telepathic. Plus, they control the weather.

you find those things strange in a universe with a three headed gold skinned dragon a giant moth and a petrandon not to mention a monster that breathes radioactive fire??is ANYTHING strange at this point??

reply

in terms of the singing twins who are spoken of as faeries in this film but later spoken of also as priestesses you see the culture they come from as a non technological culture very ritualistic so maybe look at it like this their singing is either a ritual or part of a ritual in concert with other back on the island to rouse and call mothra to defend humanity??maybe that helps a bit??

If they cast the frickin’ OLSEN twins in the remake because their baby sister was in the FIRST Godzilla flick...
