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. Scylla is also the name of a genus of swimming crabs, whose legs resemble those of the Titan.

Design

Scylla is a gigantic creature with an ammonite-like body and six incredibly long Japanese spider crab-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, 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 Phoenix with her colossal legs. Eventually, she made her way to Boston along with Methuselah, Behemoth, and a female 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.

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.
