They had to make Kong much larger than original, smarter, and give his entire species a big backstory that says they were at war with Godzilla or something just to give him a chance. Even then, he was still the underdog. Don't fvck with the true King.
@TheStarHawk, it's literally in the names. What's a King (Kong) to a God(zilla)?
@TheStarHawk, and you think Godzilla hasn’t massively grown since 1954? And what? Would it have made sense for the creators to keep Kong at his normal size and still fight Zilla?
No, I didn’t think so.
And you gotta give it to Kong, he put up a hell of a fight and he rather die than bow to Zilla. Not to mention, if it wasn’t for Kong, Mechagodzilla would’ve killed Zilla. He literally saved his life
@Slovak Guy , you do realize he’s not really a god right? It’s just his name. The only time Zilla can be considered a god, is in Shin Godzilla. As he could evolve into a universe. And mmmaybe Godzilla Earth
@TheStarHawk, I like how it basically ended with mutual respect and they went their separate ways, after that rombo combo they pulled on mechagodzilla
@Sterling M Archer, I know Right? Not bowing in the face of death is badass. I don't understand why people think they have to talk sh!t on Kong, it's unnecessary. Also, they can't act like it wasn't close, Godzilla got pretty messed up in the fight.
@Mantis Tobaggan, true enough but kong wouldve died at sea long before their ultimate showdown if the movie had any kind of realism (yes I know its about giant monsters fighting and the earth is hollow)
@Runnin with scissors, same with Ghidora, but the movie would be over too quickly then lol
@Runnin with scissors, I love how people always point out that Kong had help from the humans. Yet conveniently forget that Zilla had help from the humans when he fought Ghidora
@Mantis Tobaggan, he did. Other than Ghidora, Kong was the closest to beating Zilla
@Sterling M Archer, “hum but actually” so did Ghidora (sorta). Godzilla was winning the fight vs Ghidora in their first encounter, the missiles(nuke?) was the thing that knocked Harmed Godzilla and prevented him from giving the killing blow. And in the last fight, Ghidora absored energy from the City powergrid.
@Runnin with scissors, i love that the earth is hollow with a portal in it then kong climbs up the hole zilla made like the portal just stopped existing
@Runnin with scissors, lol realism in a godzilla.movie. these writers rape science. They honestly should just fire the actors and use the money they save to make an 1.5 movie of just cgi kaiju fights no backstory, no plot just kaiju killing kiaju i dont need to know why
Monkey learned the hard way
@megamanx181x, he didn't submit though, and saved his life after, credit where credit is due.
@Mantis Tobaggan, but godzilla still walks away like the champ
@Mantis Tobaggan, Of course he submitted, he lost. He got lucky Gidzilla decided to let him off easy.
@Health Potion, losses and submit aren't the same, Rodan submitted, Kong roared in the face of death.
@megamanx181x, oh yeah I'm not saying anything against Godzilla lol
@Mantis Tobaggan, Rodan had lost as well. Lol
@Health Potion, oh yeah I know, the difference is Kong lost and still defied him even though he would be killed, Rodan bowed to him afterwards.
@Health Potion, to be clear I'm not saying Kong could have, or should have won, but yall wanna act like monke didn't leave gman beaten up and then save his ass from Mecha G.
@Mantis Tobaggan, Nah, I just don't think King ever really stood any sort of chance against the King of the Monsters. Kong's great in is own thing, but to Godzilla he's just another notch on his championship belt.
@Health Potion, I would say he's the third strongest though, from what we have seen.
1. Ghidora (Godzilla only won with help)
While ofc Kong wouldn't win they set him up in universe to be a good match imo.
@Mantis Tobaggan, Godzilla in water is the most powerful though lol
@Mantis Tobaggan, Sorry for being so antagonistic. I'm just a really big Godzilla fan, and have never really cared for King Kong so I was really happy with the outcome of the movie. Lol
@Health Potion, oh nah man I didn't even read it as antagonistic, I love discussing this kind of stuff.
@Mantis Tobaggan, two peeps discussing kaiju battles with opposing opinions and not getting mad at each other. This does bring a smile to my face
@megamanx181x, still think kong should have won. Yea zilla has automic breath. But kong got speed over zilla, intellegence (uses tools and weapons)And reach
@Squirley Dan, me too! I like to debate civilly
@Mantis Tobaggan, smart man
@jerriest jerry , I was thinking the same thing
@Sterling M Archer, i agree about kong i can still remember how mechagodzilla was throwing godzilla around like a ragdoll agaisnt buildings in the end kong and godzilla put aside their squabble and worked together to beat mechagodzilla i even liked that kong now has his own kingdom to rule i was on team godzilla the whole time but i gotta respect kong for helping godzilla its like that saying "the enemy of my enemy is my friend"
