In 1944, American pilot Hank Marlow and Japanese pilot Ikari Gunpei crash landed on Skull Island after there planes were shot down in a dogfight.

The two pilots were marooned on the island since and formed a friendship, though Gunpei was killed by a Skull Crawler at some point in time. Several video montages showed that the Allies had won the war as V-Day was declared the United Kingdom and the United States of America.
