As we all know, Ghidorah is going to have some new abilities that are going to be very unique when he fights Godzilla. But the thing is, not all of them have names, and he may even have more abilities than what we've seen in the trailers. So starting off, we have the most obvious of his abilities: Gravity Beams. We all know how these things work, so I won't go into the details. Oh, and I forgot to mention, if any of these abilities don't have official names, I'm going to give them unofficial ones, so tell me what you think about them.

-Gravity Beam Scattershot

We've seen that Ghidorah has the ability to fire Gravity Beams from his wings, much like Grand King Ghidorah. (Even though they were more like tiny lightning bolts that didn't have as nearly enough range compared to this attack) I took inspiration from the Godzilla PS4 game, mainly using Battra's "Prism Beam Scattershot" attack. (Even though he fires them from his eyes) I think that Ghidorah might be able to do some serious damage with this attack.


This ability was actually a scrapped idea for Godzilla vs King Ghidorah (1991). Essentially, Ghidorah had the ability to combine his three seperate Gravity Beams and merge them together as one big blast. Although never used in '91, I feel like he has the potential to have this ability in KOTM, since I've noticed that in the latest trailers/TV spots, we see him firing his Gravity beams in a very close range to each other. But I guess we'll just have to wait and see.


Alright, you gotta admit, this name sounds pretty badass, especially for Ghidorah. This is the name that I have given to Ghidorah's ability to create a large electric storm just by flying. According to the Monarch Website, this power has the potential to rip apart the Stratosphere. So I feel like I gave it a very appropriate name: Strato-Breaker.

-Gravity Bite

This ability has been seen in '91. The gist of this ability is that Ghidorah has the ability to fire his gravity beams into an opponent just by biting them. It's not exactly the strongest, but it can stun an opponent.

-Selectively Permeable Wing Shield 

This one is definitely up for debate. I've always seen Ghidorah being able to use his wings as a sort of shield to deflect/block oncoming attacks, such as Godzilla's atomic breath. Just like Godzilla Earth, this shield is not permanent, and can be destroyed with an attack strong enough. 

So those are the abilities that I think Ghidorah has and may have, as well as the possible names for the new abilities. Tell me what you think about these names and abilities, I'd love to hear them!

For Ghidorah's major light show, I think a better name would be "Expanding Gravity Storm".

I don't think he'll be using his wings to shield himself, but I think an even cooler way to do it would be using the Expanding Gravity Storm in a short burst to quickly deflect and nullify ranged attacks, perhaps naming it "Expanding Storm Shield".

We do see King Ghidorah use his Gravity Beams at point blank range in one of the quick clips seen in the "Run" TV spot, so he definitely has that going for him.

Another cool one he could do would be him using his physical bulk and aerial flight and combining it with his Expanding Gravity Storm for deadly combo attacks. He could rush in low to the ground or do a dive bomb straight at ground-bound Titans that's boosted by all the lightning.

I like it!

I love the idea of the unibeam i feel like if Ghidorah's gravity beams are on par with Godzilla's atomic breath then the unibeam could be like ghidorah's counterpart to Godzilla's spiral ray.

You know, seeing this Ghidorah's power, i'm scared of Rodan dying

Anyone else think this King Ghidorah might actually be the strongest incarnation of King Ghidorah yet (including the anime King Ghidorah)? I know I do. I'm excited/terrified to see what this incarnation can do on screen. I can't wait.

Yeah, no, Anime Ghidorah is DEFINITELY still the strongest.

Probably will be for a long while, seeing as how eating planets and nullifying Godzilla Earth in every way possible puts him on the highest tier of monsters in the franchise.


MemberRodanApr-17-2019 5:11 PM

TheGMan123 Yeah, anime ghidorah is... OP to say the least

As far as the more physically present Ghidorahs come, it'll be hard to beat Keizer Ghidorah.

That guy stomped all over FW Godzilla, and that guy's still arguably the most powerful live-action Godzilla to date.

 MDK 2 (MinecraftDinoKaiju) I'm pretty sure that Anime Ghidorah is actually some sort of optical illusion. He only became real when Metphies died. This was the reason why Ghidorah could hurt Godzilla, while Godzilla's attacks either deflected off of him or just phased through Ghidorah.

How is he an optical illusion if he can physically inflict pain on Godzilla? That makes no sense.

They merely state that the rules around King Ghidorah and the universe he hails from don't apply to ours.

MemberBaragonMay-02-2019 5:27 AM

G. H. (Gman) I don't exactly remember the explanation, but I do remember seeing it in a video. I don't know if it was Ghidorah's Kaiju Profile by WikiZilla on YouTube, or someone else. 


MemberTitanosaurusMay-02-2019 5:52 AM

Yeah, that was the explanation given in the film. Thermodynamics? Screw that! Laws of matter? None of that! The anime's Ghidorah did not care one bit for physics until his little pawn was blinded, and thus he was too.

As for this new King Ghidorah, I'm wondering if he's still got any tricks up his nonexistent sleeves besides what we know already.

Maybe he'll power himself up with gravity lightning in a manner akin to how Godzilla presumably powered himself up for the Boston battle and with the Scorched Godzilla state (that's my latest fan name for the form, tell me what you think :P ) in order to combat the latter.

Imagine Thunderclap Ghidorah (my fan name for this hypothetical form, tell me what you think :P ) flying in against Scorched Godzilla! It could be as simple as him generating gravity lightning around his body without necessarily shooting it out to augment his physical capabilities.


MemberBaragonMay-03-2019 10:05 AM

TheGMan123 I need to say a few things:

-Scorched Godzilla is a pretty cool name, but I'm rolling with Burning Godzilla. Anything is fine BUT Fire Godzilla

-Which Explaination are you talking about? Ghidorah Being  a creature from another universe whose rules don't apply to ours, or that Ghidorah was some sort of optical illusion, only becoming real so Godzilla could fight him when Metphies died?

-Thunderclap Ghidorah sounds so effing awesome! Here's some food for thought: If he's in Thunderclap form, what if we see electricity constantly surging throughout his body, with there being so much that he practically pulses with light, much like how Godzilla pulses orange during Godzilla vs Destoroyah?
