Amhuluk is a Titan first mentioned in the 2019 film Godzilla: King of the Monsters. Its design was revealed in the 2021 Legendary graphic novel Godzilla Dominion.

Awakened by King Ghidorah's call in 2019, Amhuluk escaped from the Monarch outpost surrounding it in the Komi Republic. It was later pacified when Madison Russell activated the Orca in Fenway Park. Sometime later, Amhuluk encroached on Behemoth's territory in the Amazon rainforest, but was confronted by Godzilla and convinced to leave.

Name

Amhuluk is named after a water monster from the folklore of the Kalapuya tribe in Oregon. The creature, described as a horned dragon covered in spotted fur, was associated with drowning, disease, and the malarial fog. It is designated as Titanus Amhuluk by Monarch.

Design

Amhuluk's body is bulky, asymmetrical, and resembles a mess of black vines tied together. It possesses four legs and two arms. Blue-colored streaks adorn its body. What looks like trees protrude from the creature's back. Amhuluk has a fish-like face with multiple yellow, glowing eyes, a stinger-tipped tongue, and squid-like tentacles protruding from the back of its neck.

Personality

Amhuluk appears to be hostile towards other Titans aside from Godzilla, as it was seen violently fighting Behemoth.

History

Amhuluk was among the Titans awakened by King Ghidorah's alpha call and escaped from Monarch Outpost 66 in the Manpupuner Rock Formations. It was pacified when Madison Russell activated the Orca in Fenway Park.

Books

Comics

Godzilla Dominion

Amhuluk fought with Behemoth in the Amazon rainforest. Amhuluk split one of Behemoth's tusks with a single slash from its hand. Behemoth struck at Amhuluk with his other tusk, only for the Titan to retaliate with a punch. Amhuluk grabbed onto Behemoth's other tusk and began to drag him along the river. After having sensed Behemoth and Amhuluk's battle, Godzilla made his way to the river. When he arrived, he watched the two Titans battling and decided to intervene. Amhuluk continued to drag Behemoth, but was shoved into a nearby shoreline by Godzilla. Godzilla roared at Amhuluk, prompting the Titan to leave the area.

Abilites

Telekinesis

According to Godzilla Dominion artist Drew Johnson, Amhuluk is merely a head and spine; the rest of its "body" is a telekinetically-assembled mass of "old vegetation, logs, branches, [and] moss."[1] It can telekinetically hurl parts of itself at opponents at high speeds, shown when one of its arms split one of Behemoth's tusks in two at a long distance.

Physical abilities

Ahmuluk possesses great strength, as it was able to break apart Behemoth's tusk with one slash and knock him down with a punch. It was also able to drag Behemoth's 354-foot-tall body along the Amazon River.

Amphibiousness

Amhuluk has an amphibious lifestyle, being able to fight Titans on land and swim away when needing to retreat.
