Godzilla vs. Emperor Ghidorah (1994)

Series // Unused Character

Unofficial commissioned artwork by Apocalotaurus


With a new Godzilla movie in the works, the idea to bring King Ghidorah back into the series was conceived. Named Emperor Ghidorah, this new incarnation would not have been a man-made construct like its 1991 counterpart, rather, it would have remained faithful to its roots as a super space monster. Unfortunately, as the recently-released Yamato Takeru (1994) saw the introduction of a Ghidorah-esque monster in the form of Orochi, the Emperor Ghidorah concept was ultimately scrapped.

  • No official concept artwork of Emperor Ghidorah exists. The illustration in the article picture is an interpretation created by artist Apocalotaurus, and was commissioned for use on Toho Kingdom by staff. It was not created by Toho nor is it their official look for the unused character
  • The mention of this unused concept can be found in the Japanese publication, Godzilla Dictionary: New Edition (ISBN: 4773087250).
