First appearance Godzilla: Rulers of Earth #25

Magita (マギタ) is a giant Trilopod monster featured in the final issue of the IDW comic series Godzilla: Rulers of Earth.

The largest of the Trilopods, Magita dwelt within the creatures' giant hive in Los Angeles, and was released as the Cryog Emperor Karkaro attempted to seize victory over Earth's monsters from the jaws of defeat. Magita turned its incredible power against the combined efforts of the Earth monsters, including Godzilla, Anguirus, Rodan, King Caesar, and Zilla. When they were unable to overcome the beast, Godzilla called upon every ounce of his power to fire a devastating spiral red heat ray followed by a nuclear pulse that obliterated Magita and ended the Trilopod invasion.


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.


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.


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, before effortlessly swatting them away. Enraged, Godzilla became supercharged with power and blasted Magita with his red spiral atomic ray, bringing the colossal creature to its knees. Godzilla stood underneath the creature's mouth and unleashed a powerful nuclear pulse utilizing all of his power, obliterating Magita and ending the Trilopod threat once and for all.


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 red spiral atomic breath, and was completely destroyed when Godzilla unleashed a supercharged nuclear pulse from inside of its mouth.


Concept art


  • Though an exact measurement of its height has never been given, Magita is easily one of the largest monsters 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 series at its maximum height, which stood several times Godzilla's size.[1] When asked about Magita's height in comparison to the over 300-meter tall Godzilla Earth, Matt Frank stated that Magita is "probably closer to 500 meters,"[2] while Chris Mowry has stated Magita to be "at least 8 times the size of Biollante," which when based on the latter's canonical height from Godzilla vs. Biollante would make Magita closer to 960 meters in height.[3]
