I was watching Godzilla 2014 the other day when I noticed something interesting. First was during the train scene with the Female. The train blows it's whistle, then the Female roars before going off to investigate. The roar sounded similar to the train's whistle. Then I noticed it again a second time during the scene where Godzilla attacks the Golden Gate Bridge. The battleships are blowing their horns and then Godzilla roars in the distance. Godzilla then moves in to investagate, his tail just breaching the water's surface.
So it hit me. Are the monsters confusing these sounds with the roars of their own kind? It makes sense. The Mutos use echo-location to communitcate over long distances. Perhaps the Female mistook the train whistle for the male or perhaps a rival Female. And with Godzilla. He may have been hoping that it was another of his own kind so he wouldn't need to fight alone. Realizing the sounds are not what they believed, each monster attacked and destroyed the imposter(s). Well except for Godzilla, he just destroyed the bridge, probably disapointed and sad that he is alone.
It makes sense. What do you think?
