Awesome / Ghidorah, the Three-Headed Monster

  • The Battle Royale at the finale is awesome (even if it is a little too goofy at times) and is still among the most iconic battles in Kaiju eiga and a turning point in the development of Godzilla himself.
  • The sequence where King Ghidorah devastates Tokyo is also great stuff, and makes very other scene of city destruction before it (and most after) look like a picnic- nothing has been quite as grand
  • And of course, Rodan vs Godzilla, where the pterosaur actually goes toe to toe with the King of the Monsters.
  • And when Mothra convinces them both to get their heads out of their asses and battle King Ghidorah.
  • King Ghidorah's first appearance: a huge fireball erupts out of a crashed meteor, then forms into the shape and solidifies: pure destruction made flesh. One of the most spectacular introductions of any monster in all of cinema.
