There's a 44 meter difference between Ghidorah and Godzilla - meaning King Ghidorah is about 40.7% larger than Godzilla. Using some fancy math poop and a ruler, I went ahead and measured that out then added it to godzilla's height. This should be the correct scale. (I'd use the Ghidorah model to show reference, but i'm actually avoiding it so I can see ghidorah in a trailer first. Let me tell you, i've been doing a metric fuckton of very fast scrolling).

Decided to throw Ghidorah in your image to see how that plays out.

Forgive me, I’m on mobile and not quite sure how to upload it properly.



Ah, that's much better.

Still don't like the giant bat-hands, but I'm more and more loving the idea that he'll use them to hold Godzilla in place . . . especially if those 'fingers' are more snake-like and can constrict.

Someone mentioned this on the Godzilla subreddit, but Monarch’s estimate of Ghiddy’s size could be a tentative one, due to him being frozen in a glacier and that possibly not allowing for accurate measurements. He could be an even bigger bastard than we’re currently thinking.

Hate to be that guy but I believe it was said Ghidorah is 521ft with question marks at the end. He's about 158 meters.

Yeah where is everyone getting 152 from? The site says he’s 521ft which would be 158 meters. Not that anything is added from that but still.

I doubt it, it’s just a fan made photoshop job
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 still think they way over-sized Mothra in that image. The stand which she rests on is rather thick compared to her body, and appears to be the same type of stand that holds up Rodan.

Anyone else think Ghidorah's going to emerge from the ice with only two heads? There are only two heads visible in every shot of him in the trailer, and the new underwater concept art and the KSI cave painting both depict him with the right head missing.

Not in the final cave painting of him fighting godzilla. You can only see the neck, ending in what looks like a rather mangled stump.

As for the concept...

I only see two heads and, again, a stump - though i could be wrong.

Spoiler:
IDK if it’s in the film or not but if Ghidorah only has two heads, then that’s not from awakening scene in Antarctica, it’s his second appearance.

He had three heads in the trailer. Clear as day. Come on now. Well, he doesn't start with two heads

But how do we know that's at the point where he emerges from the Ice? The monarch profile says he inspired the Hydra - It's more than possible he is able to regenerate heads. Plus, at that point, there's already storm clouds and lightning surrounding him, meaning he's had enough time to generate a hurricane.

Yeah. Not to mention-

Spoiler:
The leaks mentioned a bunch of dead fish floating up around Godzilla and Ghidorah when they fire the Oxygen Destroyer (confirmed by the teaser), which means the battle, or atleast a part of it, takes place in water.

Heads up, if you're going to talk about spoilers or leaks, at the very least put them in the spoiler tag.

There are definitely three heads in both of the pictures. While it is harder to see in the version from the Kong:Skull Island post credit scene because of the shadow and the picture is black and while, the Licensing Expo a while back had the same exact painting but brighten and you can see all three heads.

Even then I don’t think anything of Ghidorah’s design was finalized besides the basic silhouette.

And there is definitely another head in the underwater concept, you can even see the bottom jaw and its chin spikes.
