So what is Ghidorah's posture in the movie when not flying? Is he upright, or hunched over? No wing walking?
So then Worf suddenly has a purple space bazooka...

Upright on two legs when he's facing Godzilla or striking a pose, on his fours when he's resting or facing smaller opponents. He does use his wings to support himself from time to time but he isn't a complete quadruped like Smaug. Godzilla2000Zero saw it other wise but my impression was that he isn't a natural wing "walker".

Only the Blue Oyster Cult song and the Godzilla march.

He always makes the humming sound.

Ghidorah doesn't do much walking period IIRC.

He's always either flying or standing menacingly. Aside from the charge at Godzilla seen in the trailers, I don't recall much forward movement from Ghidorah.

Also, I believe Mothra's theme was in the end credits.

You know, I think I've noticed a pattern with the development of practically all of the new monsters.

Take Scylla for example: "what if we make a monster that looks like a giant ammonite, but with legs?"
Methuselah: "what if we make a monster that looks like a mountain, but with legs?"
Behemoth: "what if we make a monster that looks like a mammoth, but it has gorilla legs?"
MUTO: "what if we make a monster that looks like a staple-remover, but with legs?"
Skull Crawler: "what if we make a monster that looks like a monitor, but with only two legs?"

I think it's most noticeable with Scylla. I'm seriously wondering what the design team was thinking when they decided to created a leggy ammonite titan. It's not bad at all, I love his/her design, it's just kinda...odd.

Everybody gangsta 'till the ammonite starts walkin'.

Yeah it's the same effect from 2014

Did any of those alleged practical effects make it into the final cut?

The ADI staff is included in the end credits, but only for "Conceptual Creature Design."
goblin shark (plural goblin sharks) [ˈgɒblɪn shärk'], noun:
1. a shark with a long pointed obstruction from forehead and growing to 3.8 meters in length; Mitsukurina owstoni.
2. not a reference to Guiron.

The Blue Oyster Cult cover during the first batch of credits, with the news clipping montage. Then Godzilla Main Title and Mothra's Song for the rest. There MAY have been one more after that, but I don't quite remember - Mothra's song I remember very distinctly, because I kept expecting the lyrics to kick in but it was just an instrumental version. XD

Honestly, I couldn't tell? Maybe?

Actually, a question for the others who've seen the movie already: I noticed in the end credits there was a character named "Asher Jonah" - Alan's son, I suppose? Did anyone catch which of Alan's goons that was? My first thought is that it must've been the guy Nelson shoots in Antarctica, but I don't remember Alan seeming particularly upset about it so it must not have been...maybe it was the guy who tried to stop Emma at the end? I'm going to keep an eye out for this next time, as I suspect that's a character that will be more important in future movies. :)

I've heard that Ghidorah has regenerative powers. How does this (plus Ghidorah's armored hide/durability) handle Godzilla blue Atomic Breath? Does Ghidorah not take any damage from it?
I'm a believe of God and Jesus Christ my saviour and not afraid to say so.
Although I'm not against giving freedom to same-sex couples/marriage (as America is supposed to be free), as a Christian (which the Bible describes as a sin) and me personally I don't care/desire/agree with same sex couples/marriage.

Ah, okay! I'm going to pay closer attention to that part next time. :)

Man in order to beat this Ghidorah,the Heisei Godzilla needs to atleast bombard him with Spiral Rays to the point where he cannot regenerate.

Ghidorah is durable enough to not take any damage from Godzilla's atomic breath. He gets pushed back or knocked over when he's caught off guard, but he takes no real damage.

The only time Ghidorah uses his regenerative powers is when he re-grows his head, other than that he pretty much never gets injured until Fire Godzilla comes on scene. And Fire Godzilla is so powerful that Ghidorah is literally obliterated and doesn't even get a chance to regenerate.

I didn't realise this till know but this Ghidorah is a trend breaker. While maybe not a full on trop for the character, Ghidorah's middle head getting beaten/blown off has been the point where he's pretty much beaten in a fight. From Destroy All Monsters to Final Wars.

Legendary Ghidorah is like "LOL, NOPE!"

Now that reminds me, what is the regenaration like? Is it like the gif above or these examples?

Handful of bad reviews on YouTube now. Alex Madden thought the first was better
