Something Real

MemberGodzillaJun-15-2017 4:32 PM

G:KOTM - What a compelling topic! Hmm...I believe King Ghidora should be able to deal with any one given Kaiju (Godzilla included) with relative ease on his own. However, against multiple Kaiju, Ghidora should be hard-pressed to claim victory. :)

It should be enough of a threat that he rivals Godzilla in power.

This is King Ghidorah. The King of Terror. The Planet Killer. The oldest monster in the Godzilla franchise that has remained an arch-enemy and has never fought along side him (not counting King Kong, who wasn't an original Toho monster). If Legendary does this right, and given how they've been treating Godzilla and King Kong they have been, then King Ghidorah will be a true threat. Godzilla 2 is going to have Godzilla, Mothra, Rodan and King Ghidorah. That means this could be a remake of Ghidorah the Three-Headed Monster. In that movie, Ghidorah was a threat to the earth. So I'd have to say, I want my Monsterverse King Ghidorah to be a threat to all life on Earth. If not, then I'm happy if Ghidorah is evil.

The King of the Monsters

MemberBaragonJun-15-2017 8:26 PM

In my ideal scenario, King Ghidorah is a colossal, unstoppable engine of death. A monster that obliterates everything in his path, which cannot be reasoned with or halted. He should be a foil to Godzilla and the other more sympathetic creatures in the MonsterVerse: while monsters like Godzilla and Kong fight to defend their territory and avoid unnecessary conflict, King Ghidorah constantly kills and destroys everything he sees, making him a true threat and potential common enemy for Godzilla, Rodan and Mothra.

As for his motivations and why he poses a threat, there's two ideas I've considered. First, maybe he somehow feeds on the life he destroys, similar to his motivation from Rebirth of Mothra III. Not sure how they could go about that and make it believable beyond him "feeding on life forces," but it's always a possibility. I suppose he could always just eat other creatures he comes across.

Another possible motivation behind him is that he kills and destroys simply because he can. There's no discernible reason for why he does what he does, he just exists to destroy. A creature whose entire existence revolves around killing whatever he can, with his motivations completely imperceptible to humans. If the filmmakers do indeed make King Ghidorah an alien, I'd like to see them follow this route. It makes him truly mysterious and alien, a force beyond human comprehension.

Either way, I imagine those cave murals from Kong: Skull Island depict a past encounter with King Ghidorah, and/or prophesize his appearance in the future. King Ghidorah may be an almost mythological apocalyptic beast, with the kaiju being living gods that humanity believed would rise to oppose him. I have a feeling this aspect could be explored through Mothra and the people who apparently worship her.

To sum up, I imagine King Ghidorah will be a terrifying force of destruction whose power far exceeds that of Godzilla and makes him a threat to all life on Earth.

Obviously, King Ghidorah needs to be really threatening in terms of pure strength and intimidation.

But I think we forget that he needs to be seen as imposing out-of-universe, too. The antagonistic monsters that have been shown thus far have been serviceable but not long-lasting. They serve their purpose as an enemy for our hero monsters to overcome, but aren't needed afterwards.

I think King Ghidorah could change that formula up. In the Showa continuity, after his initial appearance, he continued to show up sporadically, always a threat, if a bit more subdued compared to his original appearance.

I believe that Legendary's take on the character should display a similar tenacity for not staying down and popping up again. The character could become what Loki or Thanos has become to the MCU: an overarching villain that's either always around or will always come back.


MemberMothra LarvaeJun-19-2017 5:30 AM

I think he should be as powerful or more powerful than Godzilla , and dont kill King Ghidorah off until the last movie of the monsterverse and if they do kill him earlier in maybe a Destroy All Monsters remake then have him come back later on as Mecha King Ghidorah !

Well, he must obviously overpower both Rodan and Mothra when vying for dominance. I think he should definitely be a menacing threat to Godzilla as well, but not to the point of some "unbeatable" foe that requires the monsters to team up on him. Remember the Monsterverse aims to add whatever realism they can to the plotline and have tried to associate animal-like behaviors to these monsters. Though I understand there is nothing real about a giant three-headed dragon, the seriousness factor of this series should deter any attempts at a "team up", imo.

However, what I would be more inclined to entertain is the possibility that in Godzilla 2, Ghidorah doesn't die, but instead retreats to return in Godzilla vs. Kong and then, Kong and Godzilla team up. Seeing as how Kong seems more intelligent and Godzilla is pretty much on his own side, the two could in a way work together to take Ghidorah out. That would also mean that Godzilla 2 will end on a cliffhanger, which I'm not sure I want either, haha.

I don't believe a team up will happen, especially after the official synopsis. It seems it's going to be an all out free for all, which is what I was hoping for. It makes the most sense, in the wild if a hippo, a tiger, a lion, and an elephant came together the hippo,tiger, and lion wouldn't team up against the elephant. They would all fight each other till one was left.

MemberBaragonJun-23-2017 9:15 PM

I can't really see the film playing out in any way besides Godzilla, Mothra and Rodan all fighting against King Ghidorah in some way. Godzilla is already established as the protagonist monster, and the synopsis certainly points to King Ghidorah being the antagonist. In my opinion, Mothra can't be a villain and still be Mothra, and Rodan is traditionally Godzilla's ally, so him fighting alongside Godzilla isn't too out of the ordinary.

I certainly expect Godzilla and the other monsters to meet as enemies at first, especially in light of the synopsis, but once King Ghidorah shows up I won't be surprised to see them all turn against him. A "team-up" doesn't need to be a full blown "monster conference" like in Ghidorah, the Three-Headed Monster, the three monsters could simply just turn their attention away from fighting each other and focus on fighting King Ghidorah, the larger threat. This sort of thing has happened before in the films, where monsters don't ever consciously team up but still end up fighting against a common foe, examples being Godzilla and M.O.G.U.E.R.A. against SpaceGodzilla in Godzilla vs. SpaceGodzilla and Godzilla and Mothra against Gigan and Monster X in Final Wars. Even Jurassic World provides a good example of this scenario: the Tyrannosaurus rex, Velociraptor and Mosasaurus all fight against the Indominus Rex and through their combined efforts succeed in defeating it, though they never consciously work together and simply go their separate ways afterwards because there's no point in continuing to fight. Something similar to that could easily happen in Godzilla 2.

Concur with Gman's brilliant idea.

MemberMothra LarvaeJun-24-2017 8:42 PM

it should be a huge threat! king Ghidorah  was Godzillas nemeses but i don't think he should fight him with Rodan + mothra, he first has to start off by fighting all 3 and when Ghidorah gets the upper hand on all of them that's when Rodan + Mothra join Godzilla to defeat Ghidorah. when it comes to survival they will join forces after Rodan + Mothra turn tail and run, they will come back to help Godzilla. they shouldn't start out as friends that would be too hokey, because he did fight all 3 of them at one point in time. he should start by fighting Rodan then Mothra and when Godzilla defeats them two Ghidorah shows up because the 3 of them fighting wakes Ghidorah up and after Rodan + Mothra run away from Godzilla Ghidorah comes out of nowhere + gets the upper hand on Godzilla. that's when Rodan + Mothra come back to help Godzilla because Ghidorah would kill them if he defeats Godzilla.


MemberMothra LarvaeJun-25-2017 5:03 PM

He should be a threat necessitating Godzilla teaming up with Rodan and Mothra!

I think this, King Ghidorah, will be VERY dangerous & intelligent. IF, they want to adapt these perverse monsters to current events. Then, I would think he could be based on the mythic 3-headed creature found in, Russian, mythology.  Zmey Gorynych, is described as a 3-headed dragon, breathes fire etc. Sorry if this was already mentioned


MemberBaragonJun-27-2017 4:17 AM

Ghidorah's going to definitely be a Big Bad in this, but Mothra's going to play a bigger and more interesting role, and it won't end there ;)

I think Ghidorah should be somewhere between city or mountain level threat.

Godzilla Generations was a beautiful game! I loved the fact that there's a laser cannon inside of Dr. Serizawa's eyepatch.
