Grand Ghidorah by hewhowalksdeath Grand Ghidorah by hewhowalksdeath
King Ghidorah

Length: 140 meters
Weight: 80,000 tons
Wingspan: 175 meters


Born out of the empty blackness farther than infinity and grimmer than darkness, Ghidorah was raised by a deity named “Death” to be a destroyer of dying planets. There was an occasion that the space dragon escaped his master’s hands, unintentionally summoned into a world called “Earth”. A rift between time and space, caused by sorcery, became his doorway unto this planet and thus wrecked havoc upon it. Those who accidentally opened the rift fought it back and though, the battle was not easy, they managed to send it back to space, and back into the hands of his master.

After a few years passed, Death was beckoned and asked for aid against a demon ( Onijira [link]) in Earth. The Demon had surpassed the strength of some of earth’s guardians and now the human had summoned Death to victory. Death instead had sent his pet to do battle against it.

King Ghidorah had fought at the side of the same planet he once tried to destroy, defeating the demon with the aid of two earth monsters ( Mothra and Godzilla) and locking his remains from the lights of the world.

After that, Death rewarded the dragon his freedom for his loyalty and deeds, breaking his seal of ownership and turning the Dragon into a god. It was a mistake as the Dragon betrays his master’s trust by the time he had bestowed his godly powers, abusing it as he plunges deeper into space and destroying everything that breathes and grow…

I always thought that Grand Ghidorah looked too much like regular Ghidorah, but this makes Grand Ghidorah look original. :thumbsup:

very cool looking. the wing look really intresting and gives you design a new feel.

that's because KG's origins in here is more "spiritual" and supernatural. The spirals on his body is a godly attribute by the way ;)

Now, that is rather unique looking.

I like the story, very awesome concept of fusing the original Ghidorah concept and GMK. I also like the bird-likeness of our favorite golden dragon demon...but..i feel the necks are a little too skinny.

But aside from that, fantastic mate! :D
