2. Introducing Kong’s Newest Ally

Upon Kong’s arrival at the Hollow Earth, after departing from Skull Island in search of a new home, the film begins. As he explores the borders of the underground world, he catches sight of a shadow concealed by a smokescreen and readies himself for a potential attack.

As he prepares to strike, a small ape named Suko suddenly appears. Despite the innocent expression on Suko’s face, Kong is overcome with pity and reaches out his hands towards the baby ape. However, Suko does not show gratitude and instead attempts to attack Kong.

Despite not being alone, Suko finds himself facing off against a large group of apes alongside Kong. Utilizing his incredible powers, Kong easily defeats each opponent, with Suko joining him in the fight. Unexpectedly, Suko proves to be a crucial player in the climactic battle of the film.

3. Did Mothra survive her battle?

In Godzilla: The King of Monsters, Mothra, the powerful goddess Kaiju and closest companion of Godzilla, made the ultimate sacrifice to assist the Titans. Jia and the Iwi tribe were aware that only Mothra could persuade Godzilla to join forces with Kong in their battle against the Skar King.

The movie initially implies that Jia is the sole remaining member of the Iwi tribe, but it later uncovers the existence of another Iwi clan living deep within the Hollow Earth. The queen of this clan asks for Jia’s assistance in reviving Mothra through a ritual.

In addition to helping the humans and Kong bring Godzilla to the Hollow Earth, Jia also supports the titans as they search for the Skar King and Shimo.

4. Be ready to transform into a Godzilla

Ever since Godzilla’s first appearance, his trademark blue spikes have been an integral part of his iconic image, making it unimaginable to see him in any other color. However, the latest installment in the franchise, “Godzilla X Kong: The New Empire,”takes us by surprise with Godzilla sporting bright pink spikes.

Even though Godzilla’s screen time is limited in the new film, it is evident that he has undergone not only a physical transformation, but also an evolution in terms of his powers. In the epic battles he participates in, it is clear that each opponent he defeats only adds to his strength as he absorbs their energy. These battles were strategic and not merely coincidental.

As Godzilla prepares to confront a new enemy, he comes across the sea serpent titan Tiamet. The two engage in a fierce battle beneath the sea. Godzilla emerges triumphant and soon after, his spikes turn a bright shade of pink, signifying his ongoing evolution.

5. The Epic Battle Between Kong and Godzilla and Skar King

As Skar King, the formidable new enemy, emerged, both Kong and Godzilla felt compelled to confront him and prevent him from destroying the surface. While Godzilla took on Skar King head-on, Kong leaped towards Shimo, who had fallen under the evil ape’s control.

Even though Skar King had a crystal that granted him control over Shimo, Suko spotted a chance and shattered the crystal during the surface battle. This freed Shimo from Skar King’s grasp. Upon awakening, Shimo switched her allegiance and used her icy breath to freeze Skar King.

Despite being completely frozen, Skar King’s eyes continued to move, prompting Kong to swiftly destroy the enemy and bring an end to his tale.
