Once again her body cuts into him like a hundred teeth. Here, below, she is at her strongest.

Tiamat (ティアマト is a serpentine Tiamato)Titan first mentioned in the 2019 MonsterVerse film Godzilla: King of the Monsters on a Monarch map. Her design was revealed in the 2021 graphic novel Godzilla Dominion.
Once dormant underneath Stone Mountain in the U.S. state of Georgia, Tiamat was awakened by King Ghidorah's call in 2019 and began to attack humanity. She was pacified when Madison Russell activated the Orca in Boston. Some time later, Tiamat was residing near one of Godzilla's old lairs in the Hollow Earth, and attacked him when he came to reclaim it. Tiamat dominated much of the fight until Godzilla managed to bring her onto land, after which he was able to get Tiamat to submit and withdraw.

Comics[edit | edit source]
- Godzilla Dominion (2021)
When Godzilla arrived in the Hollow Earth to reclaim one of his old lairs, he was suddenly attacked by Tiamat. She coiled her body around Godzilla as she dragged him underwater in a maelstrom, with her scales cutting into him. He headbutted Tiamat in the mouth, but she expelled a blinding acidic breath into the water. Using his other senses to track Tiamat, Godzilla turned as Tiamat was trying to swim up behind him. Tiamat again constricted her body around Godzilla and began dragging him deeper and deeper underwater. Tiamat pulled Godzilla through an underwater tunnel that led into an air pocket. As the two Titans surfaced, Tiamat bit down on Godzilla's neck. Godzilla grabbed Tiamat by the throat and threw her onto solid ground. He stomped on her repeatedly, but Tiamat roared defiantly at him. Godzilla answered the upstart Titan with a roar of his own which convinced her to submit. Tiamat then slithered back into the water and departed.
