In the post-credit scenes of Kong: Skull Island it shows some monsters. Who are these monsters and what powers do they have?

EDIT: These monsters are now shown in the final trailer of Godzilla: King of Monsters.


Based on this source, the monsters are:

  1. Rodan

    Thy mighty Rodan

    Rodan. This big creature is loosely supposed to be a variation of Pteranodon, albeit larger and standing more upright. Rodan first appeared in 1956’s Rodan, a Toho film about a flying beast that can breathe poisonous gas from its mouth and has been slumbering beneath the mines of the earth for hundreds of millions of years until a nuclear blast wakes him. He flies, he bites, and he’s all around a tough customer.

  2. Mothra

    A giant butterfly...

    Mothra is generally depicted as a force for good in Japanese films, first appearing in 1961’s Mothra. She hails from a magical Japanese island where she is worshipped by priestesses and is often accompanied by two fairies, twin young women, who speak on Mothra’s behalf. She’s also a giant moth with peacock markings. But that part’s pretty obvious…

  3. Ghidorah

    3-headed dragon!

    This dude first appeared in 1964’s Ghidorah, the Three-Headed Monster. The creature has had multiple origins, including being an alien and a genetic freak from the future, but either way he is a three-headed dragon and he means business.

These guys are all part of the old Godzilla Showa-verse and basing on the premise of Godzilla: King of Monsters film, these monsters will be introduced in that movie as part of the MonsterVerse branding.

  • Are they gonna fight godzilla or friendly forces? – Vishwa Feb 20 '18 at 9:30
  • Godzilla went 1-on-1 with these guys in the old movies and considering the new movies pay homage to them, we can hopefully expect a huge showdown... :D – Nikhil Eshvar Feb 20 '18 at 9:32
  • @Vishwa they made a franchise out of this films called MonsterVerse and if all thinsg go well moneywise then they will fight each other sooner or later – Ankit Sharma Feb 20 '18 at 9:32
  • And based on the Godzilla: King of the Monsters synopsis, Godzilla will indeed fight them all! :D Will add to the answer – Nikhil Eshvar Feb 20 '18 at 9:33
  • @NikhilEshvar I thought new reboot has no connection with old movies, If it's gonna be huge showdown as that phrase means, count me in :) – Vishwa Feb 20 '18 at 9:42
