It was already clear long before the movie premiere that in “Godzilla 2: King Of The Monsters” the titans Rodan, Mothra and Ghidorah would be in the spotlight alongside the giant lizard that gave the title the title. But some other Titans also make brief appearances, and others are mentioned by name in the background. We have compiled the names of all the titans known to you.
Warning, spoilers for “Godzilla 2: King Of The Monsters” will follow!
Godzilla, Mothra, Rodan and Ghidorah
Of course, the main focus in “King Of The Monsters” is clearly on Godzilla. But also the Rodan kite, which rises imposingly from a volcano, and the giant Mothra moth, which Godzilla can heal, get their awesome moments. Furthermore, the three-headed dragon Ghidorah is considered the root of all evil, who wants to shape the world according to his own ideas with the help of the Titans.
After Ghidorah survived the explosion of the Oxygen Destroyer, a new type of military weapon, almost unscathed and emerged victorious from the fight against Godzilla, he awakens a host of other Titans around the world who are supposed to ravage the earth for the.
Scylla, Behemoth and a Titan in Germany
In Germany, near Munich, the Titan Methuselah rises, which was already hinted at in the trailer for “Godzilla 2”. Over the millennia, an entire forest could grow on the armored back of the four-legged friend. There are huge horns on its head that grow downward and twist inward.
In an oil field in Arizona, USA, Titan Scylla hears Ghidorah’s call. With six long legs, each ending in massive claws, and a head surrounded by tentacles, the monster looks like a mix of spider, crab, and octopus.
At a monarch outpost in Brazil, the Titan Behemoth awakens, whose physique resembles that of a gorilla, with a head that resembles a prehistoric mammoth with its huge fangs.
More Titans in “King Of The Monsters”
Towards the end of “Godzilla 2”, after the giant lizard defeated the three-headed Ghidorah, another descendant of the MUTO (“Massive Unidentified Terrestrial Organism”) appears, which already caused riots in 2014’s “Godzilla”. This MUTO, however, accepts Godzilla as the rightful king of the monsters.
The well-known giant monkey from “Kong: Skull Island” does not appear directly in “Godzilla 2”, but is mentioned several times and can also be seen in a wall painting.
In addition to the mentioned Titans, there were a number of other creatures whose names can only be seen for a brief moment on computer screens and in background screens:
It’s still exciting to see if we’ll see the Titans, who have only been mentioned by name so far, in a future MonsterVerse movie and what primeval giants still live underground. “Godzilla 2: King Of The Monsters” is currently screening in theaters in Germany. On March 12, 2020, “Godzilla Vs. Kong” the confrontation between the two giants of the same name. It is very possible that we will see more Titans there.
