Scylla is a Titan who first appeared in the 2019 Legendary Pictures Godzilla film, Godzilla: King of the Monsters.

Name

Scylla is named after the sea monster of the same name (Σκύλλα Skylla) from Greek mythology.

Design

Scylla is a gigantic creature with a squid-like body and six incredibly long spider-like legs which she uses to walk. She possesses a rounded head with two eyes, and several tentacles which hang down from her mouth area, making her face appear reminiscent of Cthulhu.

Origins

Scylla was discovered by Monarch in the Arizona desert, and Outpost 55 was constructed around her. Other details about the creature's origins are unclear.

History

MonsterVerse

Godzilla: King of the Monsters

Scylla was awakened from her slumber in Arizona by King Ghidorah's call, which also awakened many other Titans around the world. Scylla's legs tore through the desert near an oilfield as she erupted from underground. Like the other Titans, Scylla rampaged through populated areas, destroying buildings in nearby Flagstaff with her colossal legs. Eventually, she made her way to Boston along with Methuselah, Behemoth, and the six-legged MUTO. There, they found the alpha they were following, Ghidorah, slain at the hands of Godzilla. Rodan approached Godzilla to challenge him, but was intimidated by his gaze and ultimately submitted. The other Titans all followed suit, each "bowing" in their own way to the new King of the Monsters. Later on, reports of Scylla leaving humanity to live in a lake were brought up. The creature is also credited to the slowing down of the polar ice caps melting.

Abilities

Legs

Scylla utilizes her massive legs to effortlessly smash through buildings.

Godzilla: King of the Monsters - The Official Movie Novelization

Scylla performs essentially the same role in the novelization that she does in the film itself.

Trivia

  • Possibly due in part to her spider-like legs, Scylla was frequently mistaken for Kumonga by fans and media outlets after viewing the trailers for the film.

Apparently, she can somehow slow down Antarctica's melting ice, which stabilizes global sea levels.

…..

How in the...? How? She was in Arizona, is now in a lake somewhere, and somehow managed to pull off that. How???

Scylla for me:

Greek monster Skulla (*Y is converted to U, since upsilon = U*)

Do ya think that the slowing down of melting ice is some form of Hydrokinesis/Cryokinesis?

The novelization refers to Scylla as a female, and the mythological figure she is named after is female as well.
