Godzilla’s great rival



Destructive power that surpasses the three major monsters
Godzilla’s greatest rival debut


Was King Ghidorah blue?


In the first public press release, King Ghidorah had a blue body and feathers in the three primary colors of blue, yellow, and red, as seen in posters and pamphlet covers, but it was repainted in gold before shooting. The green neck of King Ghidorah in the 1966 Marusan store toy package is a remnant of that.


It emerged from a meteorite that flew over Kurobe Gorge. A space monster that rampaged through space and destroyed the advanced civilization of Venus 5,000 years ago. With three dragon-like heads and a bifurcated tail, its body and legs covered in golden scales, and a pair of gigantic wings, it is a monster among monsters with destructive power exceeding that of all earth monsters. The greatest weapon is the gravitational ray that is emitted in the shape of a lightning bolt from the three mouths. It boasts tremendous destructive power, making the opponent into a weightless state and pulverizing them into pieces in the air. It has a metallic cry that differs from that of the earth monster, and each of the three heads has a different voice. A large meteorite that fell into the Kurobe Gorge cracked and appeared in the shape of a hot ball of explosive flames. After attacking Matsumoto Castle, Marine Tower in Yokohama, Yokohama City near Yamashita Park, and Tokyo Tower from the sky, Godzilla, Mothra, Rodan, great battle unfolds between the united front and the foot of Mt. Fuji.
