Monsterverse Theory Reveals Godzilla Beats Skar King (By Copying Ghidorah)


  • The Skar King will likely be the main villain with his Titan army in Godzilla x Kong.
  • Godzilla could summon his own Titan army using a tactic similar to Ghidorah’s call.
  • Godzilla’s call may introduce more Monsterverse Titans and pay off a moment from King of the Monsters.



Taking a lesson from his experience with King Ghidorah could be the key to victory for Godzilla and Kong in Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire. From the looks of things, the Monsterverse’s Skar King will be the main villain in the Godzilla vs. Kong sequel. Following their brief alliance against Mechagodzilla, the two ancient rivals will have to put aside their differences a second time, possibly against multiple opponents.

The marketing has promised that Godzilla and Kong will be faced with a “world-ending threat” when the duo return to the big screen. The Skar King’s presence in the trailers and fights with Kong heavily imply he’ll be behind it. On the surface, he may not seem fearsome enough to challenge both Titans, but Godzilla x Kong director Adam Wingard’s comments about Godzilla needing a new transformation to overcome the challenges ahead are evidence of the odds they’re up against. But while his new form may be a factor, it alone may not be enough to tip the scale.

Skar King Has A Titan Army In Godzilla X Kong

Kong and Skar King fight in Godzilla x Kong

It appears that a big part of what makes Skar King so dangerous is the army he’ll have backing him. Footage released from the movie shows him rallying an army of ape monsters similar to Kong that the second Godzilla x Kong trailer has dubbed “Great Apes.” This, combined with the tease that Skar King is sending out a “call to war” means that he won’t be on his own in Godzilla x Kong; he has allies, which explains why a team-up between Godzilla and Kong will be necessary. What’s more, an ice Titan was shown blasting Kong in the second trailer, which indicates that Skar King’s forces also count monsters outside his own species.

The inclusion of so many adversaries create a high bar for Godzilla and Kong to meet in the new movie. Godzilla may be the King of the Monsters, but how he fared against the MUTOs when he had to fight both together show that even he doesn’t fare well when having to battle multiple opponents at once. And that fight was against just two Titans; pitting him and Kong against a legion of monsters would make survival seem nigh impossible. His new transformation could help, but it’s hard to imagine Godzilla and Kong besting an army of Titans without some allies of their own to balance things out.

If Ghidorah Can Instantly Raise A Titan Army, Godzilla Can Too

What may be the best way for Godzilla to take away Skar King’s biggest advantage could require the Titan to borrow from the playbook of his greatest enemy. In Godzilla: King of the Monsters, Ghidorah stood atop a volcano and let out a roar heard by a multitude of Monsterverse Titans. Behemoth, Scylla, Methuselah, the third MUTO, and 11 more Godzilla:King of the Monsters Titans all responded to the call and became minions of Ghidorah. Theoretically, copying this move could allow Godzilla to raise his own army in short order.

As things stand, there’s no reason to believe such a strategy wouldn’t work. First of all, it’s already been established that these monsters are Godzilla’s minions now, as they were shown bowing down to him in Godzilla: King of the Monsters’ ending. Since they accepted Godzilla as the alpha in the same way that they did with Ghidorah, it makes sense that they would follow him into battle if given the command.,

Of course, there’s the matter of whether Godzilla is even capable of summoning the Titans. Godzilla: Dominion, a graphic novel prequel to Godzilla vs. Kong, indicated that he does indeed possess the power to communicate with them from a distance. At the end of the story, Godzilla let out a call that sent all the Titans back into hibernation. If Godzilla can pull that off with a single roar, achieving the reverse of that hardly seems implausible. In other words, if Godzilla can call the Titans into hibernation, he should be able to wake them up as well.

Godzilla’s Titan Army Can Explain Two Godzilla X Kong Story Teases

Interestingly, the idea that Godzilla will wind up with his own Titan army is supported by two teases in the Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire marketing. The first trailer included a clip of what appeared to be a Titan leg hitting the ground. It doesn’t bear any resemblance to the design of any of the confirmed Godzilla x Kong Titans, but does look like the legs of Scylla, one of the Titans who formerly followed Ghidorah. As noted above, Godzilla sent all of these Titans back into hibernation between King of the Monsters and Godzilla vs. Kong, which means that something must have awoken her.

Scylla’s return could be explained by Godzilla’s need for help, and a similar assessment could also be made of Mothra’s apparent role. A split-second shot of Mothra in the reflection of Jia’s eye proved that the kaiju, who died in King of the Monsters, will appear in at least some capacity in Godzilla x Kong. The King of the Monsters credits strongly hinted that an egg found on Infant Island belonged to Mothra. Since Mothra has yet to appear since King of the Monsters, it can be presumed that she’s still inside the egg, waiting to be reborn. The last version incubated for thousands of years, but Godzilla x Kong’s Mothra could hatch early if Godzilla’s call for help reaches her.

Godzilla’s Roar Can Introduce More Monsterverse Titans (& Pay Off King Of The Monsters’ Ending)

Godzilla in Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire

Godzilla unleashing a roar that wakes up the Titans of the Monsterverse would serve more than one purpose in the movie. Using the move that nearly doomed the Monsterverse in King of the Monsters would be an interesting way to bring back and flip a major moment from the 2019 movie. Similar to how Ghidorah’s call debuted Monsterverse Titans like Behemoth and Scylla, Godzilla’s version of it could allow audiences to lay eyes on Typhon, Sekhmet, Abaddon, and more for the first time.

The Titans missing from King of the Monsters can get official Monsterverse designs if they show up in response to Godzilla’s roar. Their appearances have been the subject of much speculation for five years now, hence why revealing them during the movie’s final battle would be a massive payoff. Heading in this direction would also give true meaning to Godzilla’s position as the alpha; he seized control of the Titans in King of the Monsters but still hasn’t had an opportunity to assert his new authority; that could finally change in Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire.
