HOLY EFFIN' CRAP!!! This came as a huge surprise to me, mainly because I haven't really caught up with all the new Godzilla news over the past week, and I'm kinda bummed out that I missed this epic moment! I always kind of knew that Rodan may be the anti-hero of the film, mainly because of his overall appearance. He doesn't really look like an "Allied" Kaiju, but more of an Aggressive one. And I sure got the whole "Aggressive" nature of Rodan down: Look at this shot! Rodan, who is about 47 meters tall, is taking on Ghidorah, who is about 150 meters tall! But the real question is, who will win? My money is on Ghidorah, mostly due to his sheer size and strength, although out of all the designs I've seen with Rodan, he is one of my favorites for this film. I see Rodan having a fighting chance, mostly because of his Magma/Volcanic Rock armor that covers him, as well as his overall size, possibly making him a lot more agile than Ghidorah. (And maybe because Mike Dougherty has a soft spot for him) But that's my opinion. I really want Rodan to win, but Ghidorah may be the victorious monster in this outcome. I'd like to hear your thoughts though!

I also want Rodan to win, but Ghidorah beats him.

Zwei Wing is the best singing duo. Change my mind.

G. H. (Gman) Lol. (Either that, or nostalgia placement/bait.)

GojiFanPat I feel like it would be obvious that in oder for the third act to happen, Rodan will have to die to King Ghidorah so that Ghidorah can fight Godzilla.

Yeah, as much as I want to root for Rodan, he's the clear underdog and just isn't as strong as the golden wings of demise.

G. H. (Gman) Nice. Although things are a lot different now since these aren't guys in suits being thrown at each other. But that moment was pretty funny to watch.

This is also gonna sound stupid, but I have NO idea on how to tag people's names in replies, so if someone could help me out, that'd be great.

Point is Rodan was quite the badass back in 1964 and probably hasn't been that ballsy since then. The new movie is going to have to go a long, long way to make me feel the same type of impact with its own collision.

As for "tagging" all you have to do is copy and paste our screen names from the conversation here.

This tease has me super hyped, especially because I didn't want Rodan to be a "bad guy", but also a little sad, because I was really hoping to see (at least for a moment) all three monsters teaming up against Ghidorah. This image, plus the fact that there's no evidence that Rodan shows up at the climax doesn't bode well for our pterodactyl boi

G. H. (Gman) Thanks

godzilla3580 well actually, in the second trailer when we see Mothra flying through (I think) Ghidorah's storm clouds, if you pause it at the right time and look over by Mothra, you can kind of see some sort of thing that is on fire. People are speculating that this is Rodan charging into battle with Mothra. I'm not sure if the final fight is going to be between Godzilla, Mothra, Rodan, and Ghidorah, with it being a 3v1 against Ghidorah, or the POSSIBLY SPOILED 1-on-1 battle against Godzilla and Ghidorah. I'll try and outline what I'm talking about between the whole thing with Rodan and Mothra charging into battle.

GojiFanPat You know what, I'm not so sure about the Rodan argument you made, but we'll just have to wait and see.

As for "the POSSIBLY SPOILED 1-on-1 battle against Godzilla and Ghidorah.", why should you feel it is spoiled? It's really common sense that it would be that, since it is a common theme for there to be a final battle between the hero and their arch-nemesis in the climax.

MDK 2 (MinecraftDinoKaiju) That part about the "POSSIBLY SOILED" 1v1 does sound silly. But then again, I have heard about what happens during Godzilla and Ghidorah's fight, much to my anger at slightly spoiling myself. If you don't know what I'm talking about, just search up Methlokaiju on YouTube and you'll see what I'm talking about. (Apparently he has info on all the monster battles in order, as well as info on all 3 "acts" of the film. And about the Rodan argument, I forgot the name of the video, but someone made a theory on what is going on in this scene, but there definitely is a video explaining the picture that I drew the outline of what I believe to be Rodan's wing.

GojiFanPat First of all, I'm really not trying to spoil myself too much with KOTM (Maybe some slight spoiling with just Godzilla's design and the outlines of the other Titans, but that's all I'm allowing myself.), but thanks for recommending Methlokaiju for me to add to the list of kaiju YouTubers I should watch.

Second of all, That doesn't look like Rodan's wing to me. It looks more like his head. If it is, then the wing argument is busted. But let's just wait and see what it really is when the film comes out.

Just based on the fact that we know Godzilla and Ghidorah duke it out in Boston because of the trailers. I'd say Rodan is going to get the beat down laid on him in that scene. I doubt he will be killed, but I'm pretty sure he is going to get messed up pretty bad.

Now with that shot of Mothra just before the scene cuts in the trailer if you slow it down you can see what looks like Rodan's wing through the clouds. I agree the screen shot doesn't show it very well, but you can clearly see something that looks to be molten and dark brownish, in the trailer scene.

I agree that Rodan is probably going to get the beat down on him. But at the same time we do not know how strong the new Rodan is going to be. So he could possibly do some damage to King Ghidorah.
