I've been seeing this quite a bit lately and I want to make it clear. If you want to post spoilers in non-spoiler topics, please, PLEASE, put them in the spoiler tag. If you don't know how, you just click on "spoiler" when you're making a post then type inside this [spoiler ][/spoiler] or type what you want to say out, highlight it, and then click "spoiler". The latter explanation goes for quoting them too. Just use the spoiler tag.

Swooping in on the unprepared masses of humanity, RODAN.

Definitely the one design in this film that isn't all that new. Guess you can't fix perfection.

I'm loving this design. Standard, but classic. Hope to get a better look at his face soon.
I can't believe that Godzilla was the only surviving member of its species, but if we continue conducting nuclear tests, it's possible that another Godzilla might appear somewhere in the world again.

The top of the wings look like cooling magma, nice touch.
So then Worf suddenly has a purple space bazooka...

A power I would like to see is for Rodan to shoot Lava from his mouth as this version seems like a cross between Rodan and Fire Rodan. The weakness would be that Rodan would need to restore by returning to a Volcano and thus it's a last resort power as using it weakens him and leaves him open.

Rodan doesn’t need to breathe anything and I’m glad he doesn’t
Yeah, Godzilla wins... sometimes. I mean, he was killed by Dr. Serizawa's patented bubble-bath formula, heartburn, missiles, and poor box office returns, got his ass kicked by a drunken, circus-escaped gorilla, then he was beaten by two newborn worms, yeah some “king”.

I don't think he needs either just that if he did it would be temporary like how Godzilla cant spam his breath.

I don’t think he needs one in this movie, he’s got no one worth using it on

Agreed, I was thinking in the future maybe.

I feel like him having a similar flame attack to godzilla's would be really cool, since it opens up the ability for a beam lock. Would really appeal to 9 year old me.

But yeah, it's not gonna make the movie worse if he lacks one.

Rodan having a breath weapon never worked for me.

I mean he can fly at supersonic speeds and destroy everything he flies past. What does he need a breath weapon for?

For Godzilla, it makes sense. He's large, lumbering, slow, and ponderous. He needs a breath weapon to get pesky obstacles out of the way and to take down faster enemies.

But Rodan? Nah, he's fine.

I mean... he has lava for blood. Seems like that would be beneficial in a fight, right? Like.. what if he starts running with scissors and nicks his jugular or something :lol:

But seriously, being as though he can level a whole city just by flying over it, I just don't think he needs a beam. But it would be neat to utilize the lava-blood thing. He has to have lava blood for a reason...

... What if he uses his blood as a defense mechanism, like a horned lizard: When an enemy approaches, he squirts lava out of his eye to avoid capture.

At the very least, melee combat would be dangerous. You bite into him then BAM! lava burning your mouth.

It's interesting that Rodan is "the one born of fire" in this continuity of films. That is a title more fitting for Godzilla with his nuclear mutation origins.

Godzilla is natural in this universe though.

I'm aware, inwas implying he wasn't in this time. I meant when Godzilla is a nuclear mutation.
