Giant Monster Movies: King Ghidorah

A three-headed giant dragon, King Ghidorah has appeared (one way or another) in multiple Godzilla and Mothra films. Among the most powerful giant monsters in daikaiju eiga and considered Godzilla's archenemy, Ghidorah is so powerful that Godzilla is often required to ally with other kaiju to battle the three-headed monster.
