SPOILERS FOR GODZILLA: KING OF THE MONSTERS AHEAD!
Godzilla faces his toughest fight yet in Godzilla: King of the Monsters. Godzilla goes up against many titans, some of which fans of the franchise will recognize, such as Mothra, Rodan, and the almighty King Ghidorah.
In the film, Dr. Ishiro Serizawa (Ken Watanabe) states that there are 17 known titans and counting. While only some of the 17 are fully seen throughout the movie, there are some shown on computer screens and T.V.
Here is a full list of every Titan seen in Godzilla: King of the Monsters via Newsweek.
Godzilla is the alpha of the Titans, aging back before dinosaurs even existed. The King of the monsters feeds on nuclear energy as sustenance. Godzilla is viewed by much of the world as a savior after his victory against the M.U.T.Os. Five years have passed since the epic battle between the three Titans and governments of the world debate whether or not these creatures should be destroyed.
The only Titan not originally from Earth, King Ghidorah is the lifelong enemy of Godzilla. The three-headed dragon acts as the main antagonist in Godzilla: King of the Monsters as he uses his dominance to awaken all of the sleeping Titans. Much like Godzilla’s Atomic Breath, Ghidorah fires lightning from each of its three vicious heads.
The Titan of the skies, Rodan returns in Godzilla: King of the Monsters to destroy the world with a single flap of his wings. Rodan has always been known for his off and on the rivalry between him and Godzilla. There was even a time in which Rodan assisted Godzilla to battle King Ghidorah.
Mothra is another fan-favorite within the Godzilla lore. Mothra is considered to be the Queen of the monsters and has been seen fighting alongside Godzilla in earlier adaptations of the Toho Co. movies. Mothra is a large butterfly creature born from a larva. Also in previous adaptions, Mothra is the twin of the evil moth, Battra. In 2019’s Godzilla: King of the Monsters, Mothra is under captivity inside one of Monarch’s secret facilities.
During 2014’s Godzilla, Godzilla faces off between two Titans new to the kaiju lore. The M.U.T.Os (Massive Unidentified Terrestrial Organisms) are four-legged creatures, almost spider-like. In Godzilla: King of the Monsters, King Ghidorah awakens a much larger female M.U.T.O during his rampage.
Scylla is the eight-legged spider Titan that is seen escaping one of the many Monarch facilities due to Ghidorah. Many fans of the original Toho Co. movies will recognize the similarities between Scylla and the first spider kaiju Kumonga.
This Titan has lied underneath a lush green forest in the middle of Europe. Methuselah resembles a giant turtle as it carries part of the woods it hid under on its back. Methuselah finally rises after Ghidorah awakens the rest of the Titans.
While the 17+ Titans were being shown across a Monarch computer screen, the name Titanus Behemoth. Behemoth is seen along with many other Titans breaking free from their Monarch cells. Behemoth is a massive hairy beast with long tusks that curl at the end.
While many of the Titans were seen on screen throughout the film, there were quite a few that were not seen, only spoken about or shown on computer screens:
Godzilla: King of the Monsters is currently out in theaters. Godzilla will return to the silver screen to face off against King Kong in Godzilla vs Kong on March 13th, 2020.
