Originally a colony of Precambrian creatures that had lay dormant for centuries, the oxygen destroyer caused them to mutate and eventually form the giant winged demonic final form of Destoroyah. The dying Godzilla and his son were forced to battle Destoroyah, and the younger Godzilla lost his life in the process. It took the combined strength of Godzilla and the military to finally kill Destoroyah, just as Godzilla himself died.
Destoroyah is a fan favorite for his amazing design, strength and pure malice. The best part about this monster showing up again in a new movie, is his origin was already set up in KotM when the oxygen destroyer was launched at Godzilla and King Ghidorah. While the plot of Godzilla vs Kong is still a mystery, many are hoping for Destoroyah to show up as the big bad that the titular two need to team up against in the end, while others are hoping to save him for later down the road. Either way, seeing Destoroyah in the Monsterverse would make for a very intense and nail biting finale if the King of the Monsters would even stand a chance this time.
So those are my top 5 picks for original kaiju I’d like to see appear in the Monsterverse. While I’m aware there are many others that fans want to see again (Mechagodzilla, Gigan, Hedorah, SpaceGodzilla), these 5 seem to be the most plausible to introduce into the world that they’ve established so far. But who knows? The future of the franchise could turn in a different direction someday and we might start seeing giant cyborgs and mechs.
