The MonsterVerse King Ghidorah (キングギドラ?) is an incarnation of Kingu GidoraKing Ghidorah that first appeared in a cave painting in the post-credits scene for the 2017 Legendary Pictures film, Kong: Skull Island, and is set to make his debut in the upcoming 2019 film, Godzilla: King of the Monsters.
This will be the first incarnation of King Ghidorah to appear in an American-made film.
King Ghidorah's name is composed of "King" (キング?) and "Ghidorah." The "Ghidorah" part of King Ghidorah's name comes from the Japanese word for "hydra" Kingu (ヒドラ?), which is spelled very similarly to the HidoraJapanese katakana for Ghidorah.
This incarnation of King Ghidorah has only been depicted in cave paintings, but retains the classic silhouette of a tall bipedal upright dragon with three heads on long necks and two large wings at his sides. His heads all have at least two pointed horns, and appear to also possess long manes of hair that run down his necks. His necks appear longer and more snake-like that previous incarnations. In the second painting, King Ghidorah is shown spewing some kind of substance from his mouth, either flames or the character's traditional gravity beams.
This King Ghidorah's origins are currently unknown. Judging by his appearance in ancient cave paintings, he has appeared sometime in the past, and may have clashed with Godzilla. According to the official Monarch timeline, King Ghidorah was discovered buried under ice in Antarctica in 2016 by a Monarch team headed by Vivienne Graham.
After their adventure on Skull Island, Monarch members Houston Brooks and Lin San showed James Conrad and Mason Weaver two cave paintings of King Ghidorah, along with paintings depicting Godzilla, Mothra and Rodan, as proof that the inhabitants of Skull Island were not the only monsters in the world. In the second painting, he was shown fighting Godzilla.
- The script for Kong: Skull Island called for the Iwi petroglyphs inside the Wanderer to depict many monsters, including "one with three heads." In the completed film, only Kong and the Skullcrawlers were shown.
- In the official Monarch timeline posted on the Facebook page for Kong: Skull Island, the description of King Ghidorah's discovery is labeled "Monster Zero," which was the name given to King Ghidorah by the Xiliens in Invasion of Astro-Monster.
