So for those who are wondering what I mean is if it is possible that King Ghidorah may possibly be a genetic error much like how there are snakes that have multiple heads, is it possible that there somewhere is a single headed non split tail version of Ghidorah and It likely would be smaller of course.

Well, in the 1991 Heisei-era film (sorry if I am spoiling if you haven't watched, but hey, you asked), Godzilla vs King Ghidorah, the Futurians went back to the past (WW2 Pacific) and left behind 3 genetically-engineered creatures, the Dorats, which fused to become King Ghidorah after that island became the site of nuclear weapons testing.

Godzillatheking123,

In the Godzilla vs. King Ghidorah novelization the Dorats were reverse engineered from a King Ghidorah corpse found on Venus in the 2200s. 

Shame they didn't use that for the movie, I think it would've made a little more sense as to how three tiny creatures mutated into a three headed monstrosity. It would've also kept King Ghidorah's extra-terrestrial origins to some extent.

Godzillatheking123: Yeah I am aware of the novel. But I didn't mention it because I was not sure of the canon status of the novel, so I just stuck to the movie.

Although, I suppose the Godzilla series as a whole never cared too much about canon.

Potentially, though smaller?

Not likely. As a Titan, his species are likely to be naturally large winged dragons that possibly come from space.

Nah, I think Ghidorah is an alien

But it is still possible that it is a mutation of an alien species

Godzillatheking123,

True, the Japanese don't particularly care for the concept of canon. But for all intents and purposes I guess you could say it is not canon to the Heisei continuity. But it sure would've made things more interesting.

I think Ghidorah will be a space creature, but he will also have to an ancient since we saw cave paintings of him in Skull Island and Monarch Sciences.

Well he is at least as old as godzilla

If he is both an ancient and a space creature you could compare him to the old ones in the Cthulhu mythos.

I do not think Monsterverse Ghidorah is a mutation. And even if he was, it might have been intentional. At least, that's how I see it. But who knows? (Insert my forum signature here.)

Yeah I guarantee that it would be intentional

Resurgence When I said that, I meant that it might have been intentional from the perspective of whichever aliens created Monsterverse King Ghidorah.

Correct Me if I'm wrong, but I do believe that Legendary/Mike Dougherty said that Ghidorah's origins will be that Ghidorah is a creature from space who most likely arrived on Earth many millions of years ago.

MemberBaragonMar-20-2019 10:57 AM

Yeah, he did say that. But I think everyone is asking if Monsterverse King Ghidorah is a mutation of some sort that was made by aliens.

MemberBaragonMar-20-2019 2:10 PM

Yeah, but still, we don't know. You know what? Here's what we should do. We should tweet this entire forum out to Legendary/Mike Dougherty and see what they say. (And it better not be the same quote that states "that Ghidorah is a creature from space who most likely arrived on Earth many millions of years ago.") We need ACTUAL answers so that we could put this topic to rest. (For Monsterverse King Ghidorah, at least.)

Well, if Michael Dougherty "re-wrote Godzilla vs. Kong (2020)" (Btw, I'm surprised there isn't a forum topic discussing that. Why?), then I'm sure he can answer this question. (Insert my forum signature here.)

Wait he rewrote godzilla versus king kong, seriously? Not sure whether to be concerned or happy about that

Yes. I'm surprised you haven't heard of it. Look it up. You're welcome.

Does it matter? From the perspective of a human, Ghidorah having mutated in space prior to coming to Earth would have no bearing on our perception of Ghidorah as an alien. It would only matter if Ghidorah came to Earth and somehow we mutated it.
