Concept history Strange, dead monsterMUTO

Pterodactyl is an unused winged kaiju from the 2014 Legendary Pictures Godzilla film, Godzilla.

Development

Pterodactyl concept art was submitted by Josh Nizzi early into the development of Godzilla.[1] Its relation to the other unused monster designed by Josh Nizzi for the film, Rokmutul, is unknown. Godzilla's opponents in the finished film ended up being the MUTOs, one of which happened to possess wings.

Trivia

  • Pterodactyl could have been loosely based on Rodan, being a winged pterosaur-like reptile, just as Rokmutul shares some physical similarities with Anguirus.

As we do not know what abilities this creature could've had (assuming it was a kaiju sized pterodactyl), that judgement can't be made.

Looks way cooler than the M.U.T.O in my opinion.

He is called "Pterodactyl" but looks nothing like the real pteranodon.

Pterodactyl didn't actually exist. There's Pteranodon and Pterodactylus, but no such thing as Pterodactyl.
