At some point,Godzilla manages to defeat King Ghidorah by shooting him with his Atomic Breath and knocking him into the crater causing smashed through the ice and froze over quickly due to the ice age.Ghidorah was frozen and kept in suspended ice for several thousands of years.
Godzilla: King of the Monsters
In the present the humans discovered the King Ghidorah's Icy Prison Tomb,the global warming and all that is threatening to release him and Upon being released, Ghidorah instantly destroys everything in his path, before Godzilla arrives.
Ghidorah tries stopping Godzilla but Godzilla manages to defeat Ghidorah by Using by shooting him with his atomic breath.Ghidorah then flies away after being attacked by Rodan. Rodan manages to locating Ghidorah.Both kaiju's two kill each other , but it ends up with Ghidorah easily defeating Rodan, However Godzilla comes and stops him from doing it and tackles Ghidorah into the ocean,this time Ghidorah manages to defeat Godzilla, this time more devastatingly than last time. Godzilla does get up again though and rips off one of Ghidorah's heads, but the military had something else in mind; using a de-oxygenator called an Oxygen Destroyer to kill both of them. Godzilla are hit by the Oxygen Destroyer and seemingly dies, but Ghidorah survives the attack, flying away and preparing to get his plan in motion now that his main opposition is dead.
Ghidorah flies to the volcano and regenerates his lost head by absorbing energy. Rodan flies to Ghidorah and, recognizing him as the new Alpha Titan, submits to him by bowing, becoming his right-hand.Ghidorah begins to awaken his army across the world and Outer Space to become his henchmen as well, and he and minions set across the globe to massacre entire cities with no opposition.The monster had changed somehow, as Ghidorah had grown in size and power, evolving into a virtually new beast: now the three-headed monster was now called King Ghidorah.However, Godzilla is revealed to be barely alive and recuperating in his lair within the submerged and highly radioactive ruins of an ancient city; and, knowing that it will take years for him to return to his full strength and engage Ghidorah again, Dr. Serizawa sacrifices himself to manually detonate a nuclear warhead which fully rejuvenates and empowers Godzilla.Ghidorah and his army are lured and wreak havoc to Boston until Godzilla and his army arrives.Godzilla army and King Ghidorah army start fighting, while Godzilla and Ghidorah battle to the death.Ghidorah is winning again, until Godzilla gets atomic and thus becomes more powerful, and nearly defeats Ghidorah. But Ghidorah decides to absorb electricity to get more powerful as well, and becomes stronger than Godzilla again.Ghidorah once again defeats Godzilla and manages to get Godzilla down on the ground by carrying him up in the sky before dropping him back to earth but as he's about to kill him, Mothra comes and sacrifices herself after defeating Rodan.
King Ghidorah starts absorbing Godzilla's energy until Rodan,starts to attacking him causing distracting Ghidorah Godzilla awakens again, but this time gaining a glowing fiery form full of atomic energy and maximum radiation, activating a nuclear pulse that obliterates Ghidorah's wings. Ghidorah attempts to use his Gravity Beams on Godzilla; instead of injuring Godzilla, his beams inadvertently and seemingly charges up Godzilla fires his atomic breath at King Ghidorah's middle neck, Godzilla threw King Ghidorah into the air and blasted him with his Infinite Heat Ray, pushing King Ghidorah into space and causing him to explode.
The xiliens has found one of Ghidorah's heads, the one that Godzilla ripped off earlier, and planning on using and create Mecha King Ghidorah.
After Godzilla manages to defeat Space Godzilla by using with his atomic breath on Space Godzilla and knocking him into the black hole, the final battle begins with Godzilla and Mecha King Ghidorah both kaiju are starting a rematch but Unfortunately Mecha-King Ghidorah was more powerful than Godzilla.Mecha-King Ghidorah fired his gravity beams and triple laser beam at Godzilla until Godzilla managed to regain his balance and damage both of Mecha-King Ghidorah's wings ,Then Mecha-King Ghidorah's capture Godzilla with cables and released its machine hand restraint. Mecha-King Ghidorah lifted Godzilla into the Outer space and over the mars by nuckling the entire planet but Godzilla manged to escape by using his atomic breath on Mecha King Ghidorah's middle neck and then pushing King Ghidorah and blasted him with red spiral ray causing to Mecha King Ghidorah to explode However, The xiliens had plotting the next plan on Mecha King Ghidorah middle neck
After Godzilla fires his atomic breath which disintegrates the Keizer ghidorah's last remaining head;the xiliens decided to relase a new and improved Hyper Mecha-King Ghidorah, and once again tried to conquer the world Soon Godzilla Destroys Hyper Mecha King Ghidorah by using his red spiral ray and causing to him to explode and finally destroying Ghidorah for good.
Powers and Abilities
King Ghidorah has had a number of changes made to himself over the years, but most of his traditional battle characteristics have remained the same. His different forms in the different movies have their own abilities.
King Ghidorah is able to fly up to speeds of Mach 3 in the Earth's atmosphere. He exceeds this speed while flying through space.King Ghidorah can encase himself within a meteorite while traveling from planet to planet.
King Ghidorah's most famous ability is the golden lightning bolt-like gravity beams he spits from his three mouths. These beams are roughly equal in power to Godzilla's atomic breath, and are capable of causing large-scale explosions when fired at buildings.
King Ghidorah can produce hurricane-force winds by flapping his wings, which are capable of blowing away buildings and knocking other kaiju off their feet.
King Ghidorah constricted his necks around Godzilla in an attempt to strangle him, causing him to foam at the mouth
King Ghidorah is usually portrayed as being extremely durable and resistant to damage, often to an extent close to Godzilla. He withstands conventional weaponry with no noticeable effect, and can even shrug off point-blank blasts from Godzilla's atomic breath. he survives having his middle head decapitated and his wings shredded, and remains alive but comatose for over 200 years laying on the sea floor. his mature form cannot be damaged at all by Mothra Leo's attacks until the latter transforms into Armor Mothra. King Ghidorah's durability is reduced, but he still survives being knocked out by Godzilla multiple times and withstands multiple blasts from his atomic breath and he is unaffected by the Oxygen Destroyer, which leaves Godzilla critically injured. While he is eventually overwhelmed by Godzilla's nuclear pulses, he remains alive even when reduced to a single head.
King Ghidorah tends to use his durability to his advantage, as he often prefers to escape from a battle that he can't win before he suffers more injuries than necessary.
Cretaceous King Ghidorah can spit fireballs from his mouths in place of his usual gravity beams.
King Ghidorah regenerated his entire body from a severed head or other limbs that was cut off by Godzilla in the Present day though it took him about a few seconds King Ghidorah could still regenerate from the wing that Godzilla severs in their final battle. he regrew his left head moments after Godzilla tore it off. regenerating his decapitated left head within seconds.
King Ghidorah's scales can manipulate the light from projectiles to form a protective barrier.
King Ghidorah can shoot six bolts of electricity from each of the tips of his wing claws. He performs a similar attack after aborbing energy from a power station, stunning and injuring Godzilla while shooting down multiple helicopters and fighter jets.
King Ghidorah is able to create a dome that allows objects to pass through, yet has a corrosive effect when they try to leave. The dome's exterior is laced with tentacles that pull outside victims inside. Living creatures inside the dome slowly have their life-force drained and transferred to King Ghidorah.
King Ghidorah can teleport smaller beings inside his dome.
King Ghidorah can install a weak mind control on other beings susceptible to it.
Ghidorah can release a strong electric shock through his bite. After absorbing Mothra's power and becoming King Ghidorah, this ability is replaced by his traditional gravity beams.
after absorbing Mothra's energy, King Ghidorah can form a golden round energy shield that deflects Godzilla's atomic breath. King Ghidorah can release this energy shield and send it colliding with the ground, which will cause a massive explosion.
while encased in the meteorite, King Ghidorah had the ability to generate what appeared to be magnetic fields that varied in strength from time to time. While it was never stated directly what purpose they served, it was stated that they were somehow connected to its powers. It seems possible that King Ghidorah used them as a form of levitation.King Ghidorah seems to retain his control over gravity, managing to suspend several cars midair above a research institute. the space monster King Ghidorah has two new, never-before-seen fighting abilities: first, the ability to emit devastating magnetic beams from his mouth, and second, the ability to produce a powerful magnetic pull around him which will draw nearby monsters closer and injure them. King Ghidorah is able to maintain the presence of his magnetic pull for roughly ten seconds before halting the attack and needing to
Mecha-King Ghidorah can fly at a speed of Mach 4 using anti-gravity generated by devices in the armor around his ankles.Because of this, his wings are not actually required for flight and instead serve as solar panels, allowing him to fly even after his wings are badly damaged. Mecha-King Ghidorah prefers to attack by hovering overhead at a low speed and firing his weapons.
Gravity Beams and Laser Beam
Mecha-King Ghidorah can fire Gravity Beams or Plasma Gravity Beamsfrom his organic left and right heads, while the mechanical central head fires a triple Laser Beam from its Gravity Laser Cannon. In Godzilla Island, in which all of Mecha-King Ghidorah's heads are mechanical, he fires the triple laser beam from all three heads. In Godzilla: Domination!, his beams are replaced by fireballs.
Mecha-King Ghidorah's organic heads can deliver an electrical shock through their bite.
Godzilla Capture Devices and Machine Hand
Mecha-King Ghidorah is equipped with four electrified capture cables, called Godzilla Capture Devices and a large Machine Hand which he can use to restrain Godzilla. These are strong enough for Mecha-King Ghidorah to be able to fly over large distances with Godzilla in tow, as seen in both Godzilla vs. King Ghidorah and Godzilla: Rulers of Earth.
- Mecha-King Ghidorah launches his Machine Hand at Godzilla
- Mecha-King Ghidorah flies while holding Godzilla with his Capture Devices and Machine Hand
With the time machine KIDS built into him and serving as his escape pod, Mecha-King Ghidorah is able to perform independent Time Warps allowing him to arrive in the year 1992 from 2204. If the cyborg is badly damaged, KIDS is able to launch from him, carrying pilot Emmy Kano and M11's A.I. inside.
In the Atari and Pipeworks Godzilla video games, Mecha-King Ghidorah can fire electrical tasers that stun enemies temporarily and drain their energy.
In the Atari and Pipeworks games, Mecha-King Ghidorah can generate an energy shield which either converts enemy energy-based attacks into health or reflects beam attacks away from him.
Seen only in Godzilla: Save the Earth, when active, this ability gives Mecha-King Ghidorah complete invincibility. Along with this, all energy-costing attacks cost no energy and all melee hits taken instead damage the aggressor.
According to cranial scans, King Ghidorah has a divergent frontal lobe density in the brains of all three heads, indicating that each of his heads can have disparate levels of cognitive functions, possibly including independent thought. Monarch has determined that each of King Ghidorah's heads exhibits its own individual personality. King Ghidorah shows his intelligence during combat, such as when he bites down on electrical wiring during his battle with Godzilla in Boston, allowing him to temporarily stun his nemesis long enough to attack him. While attempting to free his other heads from Mothra's silk the right head was able to recognize Godzilla was behind him by looking at his own reflection. Realizing that he was overwhelmed by both Godzilla and Mothra, Ghidorah wisely calls in Rodan to keep the Queen of the Monsters occupied. King Ghidorah also recognizes the ORCA frequency as a potential threat and makes several attempts to take out the source, such as when he destroys the Fenway Park speakers to cut off the sound.
King Ghidorah possesses twin tails which are prehensile and can be used to constrict foes along with his necks. He uses his tails to restrain Godzilla as he lifts him high into the sky before dropping him. He also has retractable spikes on the ends of his tails, though he does not seem to use them specifically in combat. King Ghidorah is seen shaking the ends of his tails in the air like a rattlesnake, possibly as an intimidation display.
When not using his gravity beams to attack from a distance, King Ghidorah uses his jaws when in close combat in a similar manner to a snake. He also has the ability to constrict an opponent with his three necks and two tails, strangling Godzilla at one point. His strength greatly outclasses that of Rodan, as King Ghidorah was able to easily restrain the winged Titan's wings with his left and right heads, allowing his middle head to fire a Gravity Beam at him. King Ghidorah is also shown to be capable of lifting enemies comparable to him in size without much strain, as seen when he slams Godzilla to the ground and carries him up into the atmosphere in order to drop him.
King Ghidorah is able to absorb energy through his mouths. He is shown doing this twice in his final battle with Godzilla. At one point, he bites down on a nearby power substation and absorbs the electricity, which he projects through the tips of his wings. Later, he constricts his necks around Godzilla before biting down on him and draining his atomic energy. The energy is visible coursing through Ghidorah's necks as he bites down on Godzilla. Godzilla: King of the Monsters - The Official Movie Novelization notes that King Ghidorah absorbed radiation from the Isla de Mara volcano to provide the nourishment necessary to regenerate his severed head.
Hyper Mecha-King Ghidorah can unleash an ice breath from the mouth of his middle head.
Hyper Mecha-King Ghidorah can also emit a green tractor beam from the mouth of his middle head.
Hyper Mecha-King Ghidorah can also eventually re-attach one of his heads whenever it has either severed or blown out.
- While a skilled fighter on the ground and in his element when in the air, King Ghidorah demonstrates considerable difficulty when fighting in the water, as shown when Godzilla dragged him underwater in Mexico, and would've been killed then and there if it weren't for the interference of the Oxygen Destroyer. His regeneration takes time, and he wasn't able to regenerate his wings and left and right heads after they were disintegrated by Burning Godzilla's nuclear pulse, nor when he was reduced to a single head before Godzilla incinerated it with his atomic breath. Because each head is capable of independent thought, they may become distracted and require the dominant middle head to get their attention and give them orders. However, all three were distracted by and pursued the ORCA when they had Godzilla at their mercy in Boston, giving him time to recover and ultimately leading to Ghidorah's downfall.
- Mecha-King Ghidorah is very large and slow-moving, with some delay experienced between commands given by Emmy and the cyborg's actions. As such, he is outmatched by Godzilla at close-range and is better suited to attacking by hovering from a distance. If Mecha-King Ghidorah's cockpit is hit, Emmy may be susceptible to harm and is at one point knocked unconscious. Mecha-King Ghidorah's cybernetics are vulnerable to Godzilla's atomic breath, with repeated blasts dealing severe damage to the cyborg's mechanical parts and a final focused blast to the chest putting him out of commission. Mecha-King Ghidorah is forced to retreat in Godzilla: Rulers of Earth after Godzilla uses Anguirus as a flail to strike him directly in the chest.
