Godzilla: Rulers of Earth (issue #2) is the second issue in the Godzilla: Rulers of Earth comic book series released in August 6, 2013. Zilla (in the form of the character's second incarnation IDW Zilla) makes an appearance in this issue.

The IDW Zilla makes its second appearance in this second issue of Rulers of Earth, and this issue even shows some reference to Final Wars. The comic picks up where the first issue ended, the IDW Godzilla and IDW Zilla stand face to face to each other and starts moving towards each other. While Godzilla tries to grab Zilla, the latter creature jumps to the side, but Godzilla hits Zilla in the head with his fists. With Zilla lying on the ground, Godzilla is about to put his giant foot down on the creature's head, but Zilla rapidly avoids the stomp attack and turns to rip up Godzilla's leg with its claws. Godzilla then grabs Zilla's tail with his jaws and throws him away. Zilla hits a large building, and Godzilla powers up his atomic breath and fires it at the creature. But it turns out Zilla had burrowed itself under the ground where the building once stood and thus it had escaped the atomic blast. An official description by IDW of the second issue said:

While the growing monster population continues to take its toll on Earth, an ambitious student named Lucy is ready to set out on a world-wide adventure to unravel the mysteries of the great kaiju…that is, if she can survive the battle between Godzilla and the upstart kaiju, Zilla!
