- The ancient mythological staple of a storm god slaying a giant reptilian sea monster (Yahweh slaying a Leviathan in Judeo-Christian religion, Hadad slaying Lotan in Canaanite mythology, Thor slaying Jormungandr in Norse mythology, the Hittite Tarhunz slaying Illuyanka) is in the Monsterverse a corruption of ancient retellings of Godzilla's numerous battles with Ghidorah, and the idea of Leviathan once having had a mate who was slain originates with ancient psychics's retellings of their encounters with Godzilla, who remembers how his own mate died in the jaws of Ghidorah many years ago (the novelization and one scene in the film seem to indicate that psychic powers do exist in the Monsterverse).
- Continuing the theme of myths being corrupted over time, Ghidorah has simultaneously served as an inspiration for gods, monsters, and demons, even some on the same pantheon; for example, his electrical nature, mastery over storms, multiple heads, regenerative abiities, and generally evil nature all helped to influence the Greek myths of Zeus, Typhon, and the Hydra just to name a few.
- The MUTO seen at the end of KoTM is a subspecies of the ones from G'14, one that did not evolve to use Godzillasaurs as hosts for their larvae or to reproduce out-of-control to the point where they threaten to overrun entire ecosystems. Rather, this species laid a fairly limited number of eggs at any one time and used natural sources of radiation to incubate them; as a result this species does not have the same sort of antagonistic relationship with Godzilla that the other MUTOs had. That being said they were fairly common prey items for predatory Titans in prehistoric times, hence the more spiky and armored appearance of it's back (doubling as a sort of camouflage in mountainous terrain as well as protection against predation).
- Not only did Anguirus and Baragon's respective species exist in the Monsterverse, but they are close relatives of Methuselah's species. Anguirosaurs in particular were intelligent, fierce competitors with Godzilla's species. Both would wage frequent battles over prey and territory, and both species would often take younger/smaller/older/weaker members of the other as prey. That being said the two species did prove capable of laying aside ancient rivalries in the wake of Ghidorah's assault on the planet 250 million years ago, as one of the Titans that aided Godzilla in the climactic battle that ended the P-T extinction was an alpha male Anguirus.
- Godzilla has a bad history with Kong's ancestors (as evidenced by the cave paintings showing Godzilla battling a member of Kong's species), largely becaus Megaprimatus troops would often gang up on him and try to steal his kills during his active periods in the Cenozoic era.
- As evidenced by the giant Triceratops skull in the Boneyard, Skull Island was once among the few locations where dinosaur populations survived and thrived in the wake of the K-T extinction event, with some growing to Titan-like sizes. Unfortunately the increased competition that arose after the arrival of the Kongs and even more so the attack of the Skullcrawlers many years later all but wiped out the dinosaurs on Skull Island, though a few may still survive deep within the island's jungles or within the Hollow Earth below.
- Kong's species used to be common throughout Southeast Asia, particularly in what is now Indonesia.
