Trivia

Ghidorah's name is likely based on Zmey Gorynych from the 1956 Soviet film Ilya Muromets, the inspiration source of the monster and was called "King Dragon" in Japan. Ghidorah is likely based on a direct translation of the pronunciation of Hydra in Russian language. See more »

Quotes

Dr. Emma Russell: Our world is changing. The mass extinction we feared... Has already begun. And we are the cause. We are the infection.
[pause]
Dr. Emma Russell: But like all living organisms, the earth unleashed a fever to fight this infection: Its original... and rightful rulers, the Titans. For thousands of years, these creatures have remained in hiding around the world. And unless all the Titans are found, our planet will perish, and so will we. They are the only guarantee that life will carry on.
