we know King Ghidorah came to earth from space and there are two theories on why he came to earth 1 he was driven off his homeworld after a failed cue on its parent or he was sent to Earth. I find the latter more interesting and feel that it is supported in KOM. first off Ghidorah is armored with gold a very corrosion-resistant, dense and superconductive substance that to human knowledge is a rare element and also Soft making it not ideal armor. so it's not necessarily something you would naturally have in enough quantities to plate the skin. also given he can survive in a vacuum why would he need to alter the weather. I feel these aspects alone indicate he is a biological weapon sent to eliminate the inhabitants of a world then terraform it to the needs of its creator's client's needs.

I was going to speculate more but I got inspired for a fan fic report on him.

It certainly was implied how the Titans have the ability to restore nature via their radiation deposits and it was also directly implied that Ghidorah was affecting Earth's atmosphere to suit his needs / environmental requirements. So, I absolutely see this being a possibility.

I would love to see this angle explored in future films. We already have confirmation that Ghidorah is an alien, why not have him be one of many terraforming vehicles for an alien race?

And then... introduce Gigan to the mix! Monsterverse phase 2 - I can see it already!

I actually really like this idea. My one problem with it is that it would mean that Ghidorah is once again the pawn of an alien race. I feel his alleged status as a destroyer-of-worlds is negated whenever he's somebody else's pawn, and I liked how KOTM made him the top-dog again. The Anime Trilogy did it too, but I'm not too terribly fond of their version of Ghidorah.

Also, consider the storm MV!Ghidorah generates. If you look at the monitors during Stenz's briefing at Castle Bravo, you can see that it's actually grown. The hurricane over Washington is just the center of all that. So given that his storm would eventually cover the whole planet, you could imagine what that would do to things like, say, sea levels, or photosynthesis, or...you get what I'm saying here?

Honestly, I feel the same way as Jurassic, BUT if they have Keizer Ghidorah or some other, higher level Ghidorah (maybe Desghidorah or a new Ghidorah?), then there might be a way to make a Ghidorah movie. Maybe he becomes an anti-hero, kinda like Heisei Godzilla or Showa Godzilla in Ghidorah The Three Headed Monster. Maybe they DO regenerate him fully and he ends up being another alpha titan, a similar relationship with Godzilla that Kong and Godzilla have. Then, in his movie, a higher up Ghidorah comes down and he spends the movie trying to kill the higher up, barely managing to do so. Then it's hinted that the Ghidorah he just killed was still fairly low rank, and eventually the highest rank will come down with multiple subordinates, and that will be the plot of a future Godzilla film or something. Of course FAR from what I THINK the Monsterverse will do, if they even go past GVK, but it would be a cool direction imo.

TheLazyFish Eh, I don't really see Ghidorah being much of an anti-hero.

Although, a fellow fan elsewhere once suggested a movie where Godzilla and Ghidorah both get mind-controlled by aliens again, but once they're freed they're so ticked off at being pawns that they actually briefly team up to take down the aliens. Then they go back to fighting each other.

Godzilla and Ghidorah in an enemy-of-my-enemy situation. Now that would be fun to see. :)

Yeah, that's kind of what I wanted, but Ghidorah being a very, very begrudging anti-hero. More of a villain who you root for, and just so happens to do "good" out of self preservation.

 

Also, don't forget GMK, where King Ghidorah was actually a GOOD guy, so anything's possible.

JurassicKaiju14 true it would affect photosynthesis, however, in the long run, trees and plants survived the Dust cloud caused by Yellowstone erupting and the asteroid impact that Ghidorah rode in on 65 million years ago =). however, hurricanes are very destructive and can destroy civilization if powerful enough. as to sea level, we do not know just how much Ghidorah could affect the weather, in theory, if he can cause hurricanes he can cause blizzards to refreeze the ice caps.

 

it's likely his creators would not need much control over him as once Ghidorah finishes off a planets titans he would grow bored and leave to its next conquest.

 

However, how was it Ghidorah ended up frozen in ice and why was a second Ghidorah not dispatched to earth. it could be he was a failed superweapon because it could not be controlled, escaped from its creators and started attacking other planets for sport. a kaiju with freezing abilities caches up with it on earth well it's battling Godzilla and freezes it in ice.

I think of Ghidorah as a destroyer of worlds.

Ah shit I’m using my wrong eye again. Sorry that was meant to be behind your back

Since I saw KotM, I always speculated that Ghidorah would be a biological weapon sent by the aliens (like the Pacific Rim Kaijus) because it is larger and more gifted with weapons than any kaiju as if none of its weapons were enough alone to survive , being in itself the greatest titan (3 heads breaks the course of nature).
I like to think that its origin was similar to Gryphon, using DNA from different species for its creation: snake, eagle, bat and some alien(s) species. One factor that supports this theory is that apart from the fact that your physicist does not look very "alien", he also shows some minor defects in his body like the ventral scales (the snakes have them to crawl on the ground, which Ghidorah does not need).
However, I doubt that he can survive in space (by my logic, he breathes another gas other than O2), I think he came more to the earth through a probe that released him as soon as he entered the atmosphere.

physicist? I was referring to Metallurgy, not physics there two different fields of study. doing a Fanfiction thesis on how I feel titanus Ghidorah that I will be posting here and using my FF.net account. however, I feel the reason the middle has ventral scales is to enable it to escape to and start regeneration. 

Kinda hard to say if he needs to actually breathe to gain energy as he seems to be able to draw energy via absorbing it from bites, from radiated heat like that of  Rodan's volcano to gain extra energy. however, given he is coated in a great conductor he likely can draw energy from the dust and gas clouds in space via friction when between solar systems, gamma-ray bursts, solar radiation, cosmic rays and other high energy sources of radiation well in a solar system would be a great buffet for him.  when on a planet it's likely he can get some energy from the friction of gases going over his scales along with radiation sources, like titan blood. so he does not necessarily need to breathe for anything other than his sonar calls and he may need to inhale gas or dust to fire his Gravity beams and the electrical blast he emits after draining the power grid of Boston could be what he uses when fighting in space.

Well, every living being without exception needs to breathe to live, both aerobically and anaerobically. And in space there is no matter or it is very dispersed. For this reason I think that Ghidrah arrived at the earth inside a probe or ship while it/them was in suspended animation. Remember that Godzilla was trying to drown him underwater as he struggled to ascend the surface instead of fighting.
So I think it/them breathes a different gas than oxygen into the atmosphere (like the Na'vi from Avatar).

J. Robert said a good point. Its clearly to see that ghidorah was about to be drown under water which says he need to breathe indeed. So thats a fact. His truly being still a mystery for us and the different origins in the previous movies didnt make it easier to understand. This mystery makes him really intersting as a kaiju/villain/living beeing.
The prehistroic people which draw him on the walls maybe knowed more about his beeing. I like him as only one of his kind who act on his own will but it sounds logical that hes a a "pawn" of an alien race because godzilla is like a pawn of human race. There's a theory that ghidorah is a punisher and should punish the humans for the bad treating the planet. I like how the humans are the bad in this view as well as godzilla whos created from the "bad" ones and protecting them.
Lets see what future holds.
