Godzilla v Kong

Why Kong Should Have Beat Godzilla

SPOILER ALERT!

Now, I know from the title there are some of you that are immediately going to look for the silly response: Godzilla would be easily beaten by Kong because of “Big Monke.” But behind this humor lies some truth that has been proven by the series of movies in the monsterverse.

With his already humongous size in Skull Island, it’s only reasonable that Kong would have  grown into a beast with a size to rival, or even shadow, Godzilla.

 

In Kong: Skull Island, the movie ends with Kong defeating a huge lizard-like creature that was around his size, possibly larger. If Kong was able to beat this lizard creature, why wouldn’t he be able to defeat Godzilla? Also in Skull Island, it was said that Kong was still growing. With Skull Island set in the 1970s, and Godzilla vs. Kong in present day, Kong would have around fifty years of growth that would help him defeat Godzilla. With his already humongous size in Skull Island, it’s only reasonable that Kong would have  grown into a beast with a size to rival, or even shadow, Godzilla.

In Godzilla (2014), Godzilla faces off two “parasite” monsters that have their sights on reproducing and destroying the Earth. Godzilla repeatedly faces off against these creatures that are smaller than him. During these fights, Godzilla is knocked down by the creatures and only escapes because of the aid of the humans who were hoping  to save their home. In Godzilla: King of the Monsters,  Godzilla faces off against another top predator, a Winged Hydra-like creature and again he only wins because of human intervention. Although Kong was able to defeat his lizard-like rival with human help, the help was  minor and Kong only needed the help because of the humans in the first place, it stands to reason that Kong would have claimed victory with or without the humans. 

If Godzilla and Kong were placed in an even playing field, where Godzilla can’t use water to win and Kong can’t use a jungle or buildings, Kong would prove victorious. Because of Kong’s ability to use his limbs like the giant monkey he is, Godzilla would need to defend against two arms, two legs, and a head, instead of just the biting mouth or two that he has grown accustomed to in his many monster fights. With Godzilla’s shorter arms and inability to use his feet for anything other than balance, Godzilla would have very little luck defending against all of Kong’s attacks. While Godzilla’s tail may help him, it would be of little use if he was constantly under a rain of blows from Kong.

So all in all, Godzilla would put up a fight but Kong would eventually win with his strength and constant attacks if both titans were placed  in even playing fields.
