As badass as the war-hungry villain in Godzilla vs. Kong is still not as deadly as Godzilla: King Ghidorah from King of the Monsters.

WARNING: The following contains spoilers for Godzilla vs. Kong, now in theaters and airing on HBO Max.

In Godzilla vs. Kong, the giant lizard is pushed to the limit with Kong proving to be quite a determined opponent. It’s not just about wanting to be the ape’s true alpha, he also wants to protect Jia. However, Godzilla vs. KongThe shocking twist is Kong and Godzilla’s real threat isn’t to each other, it’s Mechagodzilla. But while Mechagodzilla is an intimidating weapon of mass destruction, it is still not as terrifying or deadly as “Monster Zero,” also known as Ghidorah.

In Godzilla vs. KongGodzilla has already taken a lot of damage in two hard-hitting fights with Kong. First in the Tasman Sea, where the lizard is bombarded by the military, then in Hong Kong when Kong hits the giant with his battle ax. Godzilla’s weakened state sets the stage for Mechagodzilla to attack, using his rocket boosters, missiles, power strikes, and blasts of radioactive energy copied from the Hollow Earth.

Mechagodzilla in Godzilla vs.  Kong

Mechagodzilla is overpowered, so it’s not surprising when he overpowers a tired, bruised, and battered Godzilla. Basically Mechagodzilla’s advantage is hitting Godzilla when he’s down. In that regard, it is difficult to consider Mechagodzilla the best beast, even though it takes two Titans to annihilate it.

Ghidorah may not be a mechanic, but he does have some impressive abilities like flying, thunderstorms, and lightning. Not to mention, its three heads offer three unique perspectives in battle. In Godzilla: King of the Monsters, Ghidorah defeated Godzilla in Antarctica and only fled when the military got involved and, in the Boston finale, he was totally decimating the lizard, even after Godzilla reloaded from the atomic bomb in his underwater temple.

After Ghidorah hit Rodan and scared the other Titans, spanking Godzilla’s butt didn’t feel like a Hail Mary; it was totally organic to the plot. However, Ghidorah also killed Mothra, which proved to be his undoing because his energy allowed Nuclear Godzilla to rise up and kill the dragon. If that hadn’t happened, Godzilla would certainly have been brutally slaughtered. Ghidorah was clearly higher up the food chain. Using his inherent powers as an alien who fell to Earth, Ghidorah did not rely on mechanical enhancements like Mechagodzilla. In fact, Mechagodzilla wouldn’t have gone half as well in Godzilla vs. Kong if it weren’t for Ghidorah, proving his position as the true alpha. Ghidorah’s mind becomes trapped in Mechagodzilla, which allows the metal monster to defeat his longtime enemy, as well as Kong.

When it comes to predators, King Ghidorah is number one. It does not require the help of allies nor does it seek advantage by capitalizing on already damaged opponents; chases them anytime, anywhere, even if they’re in top condition. And unless Ghidorah’s victims join in, the dragon usually wins.

Directed by Adam Wingard and written by Eric Pearson and Max Borenstein, Godzilla vs. Kong stars Alexander Skarsgard, Millie Bobby Brown, Rebecca Hall, and Brian Tyree Henry. The movie is in theaters and on HBO Max now.
