Description

A large, cephalopod-like beast, Titanus Scylla had existed since at least the days of Ancient Greece, written about in texts from the time period as a sea monster. Eventually discovered by MONARCH, the organization kept the Titan dormant and contained within Outpost 55 located in Sedona, Arizona.

With the war between Godzilla and King Ghidorah coming to an unexpected end thanks to the United States military's Oxygen Destroyer, the three-headed monster used the opportunity to seize the throne and claim the position of Alpha among all the Titans of Earth. Letting out an unearthly cry that was heard across the globe, King Ghidorah summoned the massive beasts from their slumber. Scylla was one of these Titans, breaking free from the outpost that held it. Under the false king's orders, the aquatic creature attacked Phoenix, tearing into buildings with its spindly legs. After the Titan's rampage went on for several hours, the ORCA - a device capable of simulating the audio signature of an Alpha Titan - was used to bring the global assault to a sudden end. Sensing that the current Alpha was in need of assistance, Scylla began to make its way towards Boston as King Ghidorah once again engaged Godzilla in battle.

By the time Scylla arrived, however, Godzilla had already emerged the victor, slaying the three headed monster and assuming his rightful place as the new Alpha. Scylla acknowledged Godzilla's new position and bowed to the King of the Monsters.

Temperature Manipulation

Courtesy of the news reel at the end of the film, Titanus Scylla's presence is said to have helped slow down the melting of the polar ice caps. However, whether Scylla accomplishes this via a special ability it possesses or something passive such as an extremely low body temperature is unknown.

   
Temperature Manipulation

Poisonous Bacteria

Scylla, a scavenger by nature, feeds on the carcasses of dead Titans and, in the process of absorbing the nutrients, creates a deadly bacteria that can poison water sources. It is because of this that MONARCH disposes of the bodies of fallen Titans as quickly as possible.


Background and Trivia
  • Godzilla: King of the Monsters - The Official Movie Novelization incorrectly sites Scylla as having eight legs like a spider, when in fact the Titan only has six.
  • Legendary Tweeted a bio of Scylla during the MonsterVerse WatchAlong event. This revealed the height of the monster, 341 feet (103 meters), and the poisonous trait of the titan.
