Well, since the Monsterverse has its own version of Orochi, how do you think it should look like should it appear in the flesh? It having eight heads is granted, but do you think it should look like any of the Toho versions of the character, or maybe make it look more like an eight-headed monitor lizard to make it more earthly looking than Ghidorah? I really hope they don't make it too similar to Ghido, after all.

Why is there a need to take something inherently mythical and apply realism to it? Does that not defeat the purpose to begin with?

Hell, Toho`S own designs for Orochi are perfect enough.

I'm sorry if i my earlier suggestion came out as unflattering, what i just wanted to say was hoping that they would find a way to make Orochi not too similar to Ghidorah, that's all. Personally i'd love if they went with an updated version of the Heisei Orochi. The whole monitor lizard thing was just some random thought, indeed, such a design would be awfully uninspired.

I think thankfully they made Ghidorah’s Head crest and while mouth/jaw much more western. Taking the back (as directly shown by the painting) and having more musculature would definitely differentiate the two.

All they need to do is have a different classical head design, a different body shape, and a different color (such as the red heisei one, or purple idw one) and it’ll stand out enough.

Like the 90s Toho Orochi? So basically Keizer Ghidorah, with 8 heads?

Or they could make it look like a snake and multiple dragon heads, with a color scheme completely different from King Ghidorah. Maybe a white or blue..

What if Orochi is really just code for a type of plant hybrid or some kinda cnidarian ?

Apparently not. I've seen multiple screenshots of the map from the movie and he's not there.

I think if Orochi looked something like he did in The Three Treasures it could work:

Making him snake-like instead of dragon-like would be pretty cool imo

I'm willing to think that the unused giant scorpion is either Abaddon or Sargon

Sargon’s not a thing, and I’m betting MUTO3 is either Abaddon or Orochi.

Typhon is at Cambodia.

Anybody slightly annoyed that they have Godzilla in the Atlantic now? Very minor pet peeve.

I am very annoyed at Godzilla being in the Atlantic, because everyone saw him in the Pacific Ocean you gotta wonder why Monarch decided to put a lookout post for him in a different ocean. And doing so would do the Hollow Earth thing even better because the characters would go "holy poop this undersea tunnel took us from the Pacific to the Atlantic, the Hollow Earth is real! This is how Godzilla patrols the world's oceans!"
Weee!!!
