Magita is a giant Trilopod kaiju featured in the final issue of the IDW comic series Godzilla: Rulers of Earth.

Name

Early concept art for Magita by Matt Frank gives it the name Trilogod - King of the Trilopods! This name was changed to Magita before the release of the final issue of Godzilla: Rulers of Earth.

Design

Magita is very similar in appearance to its beta Trilopod brethren, but is considerably more massive, completely dwarfing Godzilla and his allies. Magita possesses several more pedipalps on its head than the other Trilopods, as well as dozens of circular glowing patches on the sides of its neck. Magita's arms are very long and are tipped with sharp spikes.

History

Godzilla: Rulers of Earth

Just before being killed by the rogue Gigan, and with all of the Trilopods dead, the Cryog emperor Karkaro summoned Magita from inside of the Trilopod hive. Magita burst from the hive and bellowed down at the Earth kaiju, which were tiny in comparison to it. Magita swatted the Earth monsters away and seemed to have the upper hand. Enraged, Godzilla became supercharged with power and blasted Magita with his red hyper spiral ray, bringing the colossal creature to its knees. Godzilla stood underneath the creature's mouth and unleashed a powerful nuclear pulse, obliterating Magita and ending the Trilopod threat once and for all.

Abilities

Magita does not display any notable abilities during its sole appearance, however due to its incredible size it is able to withstand all physical attacks from other kaiju and swat its enemies about with ease. However, Magita was unable to withstand Godzilla's hyper spiral ray, and was completely destroyed when Godzilla unleashed a nuclear pulse from inside of its mouth.

Trivia

  • Though an exact measurement of its height has never been given, Magita is easily one of the largest kaiju in the Godzilla franchise, standing many times taller than Godzilla and the other monsters it fought. According to Matt Frank, Magita is roughly the same size as the Magnetic Monster from the Hanna-Barbera Godzilla cartoon at its maximum height, which stood several times Godzilla's size.[1][2]
    • Additionally, when asked about Magita's height in comparison with the over 300-meter tall Godzilla Earth, Matt Frank stated that Magita is "probably closer to 500 meters."[3]
