Books

Giant snake
Test Image.png
Kong: Skull Island - The Official Movie Novelization After Kong attacked the helicopters escorting the 1973 Landsat expedition to Skull Island and downed the entire group, ex-Special Air Service tracker James Conrad attempted to get to high ground in order to get a better look at the surrounding topography. While climbing, he touched what looked like a vine, but turned out to be a 60-foot-long snake which tried to eat him. The giant serpent possessed a head as large as that of a full-grown human's, and fangs the length of a man's finger. Though it nearly constricted him to death, Conrad was able to kill it by stabbing it in the head with a knife.
Giant wasp
Test Image.png
During their expedition through the island, Conrad's party encountered a carnivorous plant with several dead animals inside its maw, including a wasp the size of Weaver's hand.
Carnivorous plant
Test Image.png
After Kong downed all of the choppers carrying the members of the Landsat and Monarch expedition to Skull Island, James Conrad's party encountered a carnivorous plant with several dead animals inside, including "a wasp the size of Weaver’s hand." The Carnivorous plant's digestive juices were said to be extremely acidic.
Iwi painting creatures
Test Image.png
The creatures Kong defends Skull Island from are more diverse than just the Skullcrawlers. The Iwi paintings depict "giant reptilian beasts, one with three heads. A crocodile fifty feet long. Snake-like monsters, slinking from holes in the ground and snapping towards the sun. Web-footed creatures, spikes along their backs spearing bloodied human shapes, diving into the ocean surrounding the island."
Margygr
Margygr001.jpg
Godzilla: King of the Monsters - The Official Movie Novelization Margygr is named after a type of mermaid described in the Norwegian educational text The King's Mirror, written around 1250.
History

Monarch discovered Margygr dead in the Arctic, killed by another Titan. They transported her corpse to their underwater base, Castle Bravo, for further study.

Trivia
  • Unused concept art matching Margygr's description in the novelization is included in The Art of Godzilla: King of the Monsters, indicating that she was cut from the movie. She thus joins Megalon and Bagan as one of the only monsters to be rejected for a Godzilla film, then turn up in other official media.
Kraken
Test Image.png
Kraken is an octopus-like Titan with "a dense, curving cone of shell" protecting his head. He is named after a sea monster from Norse mythology said to resemble a cephalopod.
History

Monarch discovered Kraken dormant in the Indian Ocean, wrapped around a long-missing nuclear submarine, and built a containment facility around him. Studying him, they learned that he had multiple brains and hearts, could change his color and pattern at will, and could likely regenerate any part of his body. By 2019, neither he nor the outpost had been given an official name. Kraken was one of the many Titans who awakened after hearing King Ghidorah's call. He tricked Monarch's containment field into thinking he was dead before launching a surprise attack, sinking the outpost. He was later pacified when Madison Russell activated the ORCA at Fenway Park.

Icarus Tigris
DAH888rUQAAFLN3.jpg large.jpg
Main article: Icarus Tigris.

Icarus Tigris is a large tiger creature originally intended to have its own scene in Kong: Skull Island. In The Art and Making of Kong: Skull Island, writer John Gatins described the planned scene involving Icarus Tigris:

[The characters] had landed on the island and spent the night on the beach before they traveled inland. They sit around and drink beer by a fire and sign sailor shanties. I just loved it, but it was a bit kind of tangential to having to get to the meat of the matter. In the morning after this raucous night, two saber-toothed tigers come out of the jungle and sniff around the camp. Someone says, "Don't shoot and they'll go away," but the guy takes the shot and kills one. They were a pair, a male and a female, and the other one just goes nuts. It kills the guy who took the shot. It's like the inciting incident of a war, a kind of harbinger; you're in a place you don't know, and now you've awakened more than you know. It was the first indication that we're not in a normal place. There's no such thing as a saber-toothed tiger and it's enormous.

In the novelization of the film, Conrad observes the tracks of a feline he estimates to be at least one-and-a-half meters long, although the creature itself is never seen.
