* The consensus we as a wiki seem to have come to on the main page is that Ghidora's FreudidianTrio is split into three semi-distinct personalities: The right head ([[YourOtherLeft Ghidora's right, that is]]) is the calculating and analytical super ego, the central head is the bossy ego, and the left head is the base and impulsive Id.

Added DiffLines:

*** Ghidora being a SingleSpecimenSpecies isn't a definite even in classical material. He was like that at first, but in later installments they revealed that there are in fact other Ghidoras.


** Unlike Conjoined twins, Ghidora is an alien who is presumably ''supposed'' to have three heads, so he probably has some sort of neurological mechanism in place to deal with stuff like that. Perhaps the three brains are able to unconsciously communicate what they want the body to do via a neural note located at the point of spinal intersection, with the central head having veto power in the event of a three-way disagreement.

* The simplest answer is that they couldn't. Remember to get to the position where they killed Ghidorah required Godzilla to literally take a nuke to the face! The circumstances and condition on earth during their last fight simply did not give Godzilla what he needed to finish Ghidorah off but imprisoning him solved the problem.

***Well there's a vital detail they could have added into the film.

*** Godzilla only Ni up and slammed him once the rest is him getting curb-stomped. He gets bitten when choke slamming Ni and when they grapple in the next shot we see of the fight he gets bitten and forced back by Ni. He gets blasted on the ground, blasted again and then blasted into the hole. He ran away because the military shot him and surprised him (he’d never been hit with missiles before). Ghidorah won the Arctic fight and Boston fight (round one against normal Godzilla) even though Godzilla was supercharged, had help from Mothra and got an early hit. Ghidorah is clearly stronger and beat him in 3/5 of the fights we know they had. Ghidorah was a summer only losing under water because he got ambushed and was panicking. In Antarctica and Boston he dominated and beat Godzilla.

** The novel states he was a younger son who wouldn’t not get any territory due to being younger and came to earth to get his own territory.

Added DiffLines:

* The novelazation claims he’s a younger son who would not get territory and came to earth to claim his own territory. So yes they are more members of him if the novel can be trusted.

[[folder: Why did Godzilla and Mothra imprison Ghidorah instead of killing him the first time?]]
* This really bugs me. If you ask yourself why Godzilla and Mothra didn't kill King Ghidorah instead of simply putting him on ice, then you realize the entire film itself was completely pointless. It shows that the studio was in such a hurry to shove arguably the greatest Godzilla villain ever into his second film that they forgot that very same detail.

** Well, MONARCH in ''Film/KongSkullIsland'' and ''Film/Godzilla2014'' was a civilian research division, with minimal or nonexistent authority over the military forces attached to them (or they were attached to, depending on how you look at it). Since Godzilla and the [=MUTTs=], it's evolved towards a paramilitary organization with a kaiju-hunting focus. But there's a lot of internal inertia to overcome; the civilian scientists aren't just immediately going to fall in with military discipline and security protocol, especially if it interferes with the efficiency of their research. Essentially, behind the scenes there's probably a huge military-versus-civilian tug of war that results in security measures not being implemented, or potentially ignored if they are.
