How so?


The chapter is from his POV, basically Kong is the narrator for his own chapter and says he hates the underground dwellers with the skull faces that killed his parents and haunt his dreams.

I remember the chapter I guess I just never put much thought into the “haunted dreams” part. Good catch.

“The deep dwellers heard the call, too. The crawlers with faces like bone that haunted his sleep. They were waking.”


Wouldn’t necessarily say it confirms PTSD but just a few paragraphs ahead it confirms that Kong remembers that the Skull Crawlers killed his parents, so it’s really not much of a reach I guess

I wouldn't really say that alone is PTSD, you can still have nightmares about something tramatic without it being PTSD

You may be right, and I'm jut reading too much into it. Personally I think it would add to his tragic character background.

Having read the novelization, I noticed they kept reffering tp Ghidorah's beams as lightning. So is this the first Ghidorah that is confirmed to shoot lightning instead of gravity beams?

Mark also calls it his weird gold lightning stuff. So they acknowledge that they aren't sure exactly what is is, jut that it produces a lot of electricity.

Pretty sure it's mostly electricity with some really subtle gravity powers for some concussive oomph (just lightning can slice up a building, but probably can't knock it down that easily). The Monarch site had some stuff about "Gravity Wells" and stuff too iirc.
