KOTM Ghidorah... awful? And this... why?
KOTM Ghidorah is like the third best version of the character after Grand King Ghidorah and Showa King Ghidorah

Mmm... I would like to see Reiwa Ghidorah again as a planet destroyer alien, like the Showa one, but even more terrifying and sadistic. And maybe even capable to telepathically comunicate. Imagine Reiwa Ghidorah talking telepathically to his victims before killing them. That would be absolutely terrifying.

Wait what? Since when was Showa Ghidorah ever even in the top 5, when we have the likes of Mecha-King Ghiodrah, Heisei Ghidorah, Death Ghidorah, and Kaizer Ghidorah? Only ones he really beats out much are Creataceous Ghidorah, GMK Ghidorah, and the anime's spaghetti monster.

I don't want him to be telepathic. The monsters can communicate with body language. The fairies can always translate if they want to be on the nose.
Come fourth, Ghidorah! Great Golden Winged Destroyer; deliver onto us a beautiful demise!

Can't we have Ghidora take a long deserved rest? I mean he's been in every era, and honestly I think for the time being, there isn't a whole lot more that can be done with him.

This. KOTM gave him his much-needed Hollywood CGI extravaganza, and now he needs to be crammed back in his asteroid to orbit the Solar System for another decade or two. Let's get somebody else in the Big Bad spotlight for a change. Anybody else. Hell, let's make Jet Jaguar an evil mastermind and let him have another movie.

I'm with Jag and.....Jag (that's gonna be a problem, lol), give Bidiboi his vacation.



but if we have to.....


No Lovecraft.

Achieve the true Showa ambition.

A striking golden dragon, beautiful to behold, graceful, a sheer contrast to the earthy or scarred normal monsters....but one with a cruel sadism, a maniac energy to obliterate everything it sees, and a cackle of pure GLEE of the endless chaotic devastation he brings.

He's been a weapon. He's been an abomination. He's been a king. Bring Ghidorah back to his roots as the glorious and mad apocalypse personified.

I would like to see them take a break from using Ghidorah, we've got four defeats versions of him in, like two years. In all honesty, I would like to see some of the other older monsters get used again.

Uh...no? I’m fine with not rushing him out right off the bat and giving him a break, but shelving Godzilla’s arch nemesis for a decade or two is a bit excessive. Like I said, I’m fine with not seeing him right away. What I’d prefer is a Thanos style slow build up. We get several story arcs with other monsters as main villains (Gigan, Destoroyah, MechaGodzilla, etc). But at the end of each arc they can hint that something even worse might be out there. Like the black hole aliens show up with MechaGodzilla to invade earth because their planet was destroyed by...something. Then, when Ghidorah finally shows up, we get a version that has all the best attributes of previous versions but also corrects all the flaws of the previous versions. Basically what Showa Ghidorah was originally presented as, scaled up to modern standards. As awesome as KOTM Ghidorah was, I don’t think he was properly scaled to how Ghidorah was originally presented in GTTHM, requiring a three way team up to defeat. Felt like a missed opportunity.

Why? That's not very long, really. Okay, twenty years maybe, but ten? Nah, that's nothing. I doubt Toho is going back to annual movies any time soon, so we won't likely see more than four or five movies in that time. I can absolutely live that long without seeing Ghidorah again, and the franchise should get by just fine if Toho gets it through their heads that their other monsters can be just as cool as the Big Five. Destoroyah, Spacegodzilla, Orga, Hedorah, and potentially others can all easily fill the major villain spot, and all have plenty of potential to be updated and made grand and terrifying for modern audiences.

Because (besides being an important part of the franchise) he’s my favorite and I like him better than any of the other potential villains you mentioned :D
Really, I’d think anyone would feel the same way if people were calling for their favorite character/kaiju to be shelved for the foreseeable future. That said...

Yeah, when you put it that way it doesn’t sound so bad. I was thinking in terms of how things were in the Heisei era and part of the Showa era where we got a new movie roughly every 1-3 years (most of which were good), in which case I’d expect to see Ghidorah sooner than 10 years in. Personally I’d like for Toho to go back to that type of schedule if possible, but I’d understand if that was impossible if they want to go all out on special effects this time.
