Unlike its previous appearances, where it had 2 mandibles, this version has 3, which makes her larval state more in keeping with its insectoid aesthetic. She also possesses raptorial front and mid-legs, as well as toed hind-legs akin to the male MUTO. Her wings are much narrower than most incarnations. She sports a stockier head than most other interpretations but retains the classic blue eyes. Her abdomen is shaped like a wasp's, much like her incarnation.

Her body still retains her classic white fur though her mouth is vertical as opposed to the usual horizontal position. Mothra's roar is similar to her past roars, being a sort of screech. The filmmakers also used the chittering of crickets that were slowed down exponentially to give the impression that Mothra is singing. There are a few moments in the film where she gives off her classic roar such as when she goes berserk in her larval state, when she emerges from her cocoon in her imago state, when Ghidorah kills her, and can also be heard within Godzilla's Nuclear Pulse.

Upon hatching from her egg as a larva, Mothra shows signs of curiosity and inquisitiveness at the Monarch personnel around her. However, she becomes aggressive when they try to contain her and webs up some of them with her silk attacks.

She helps Godzilla in fighting both Ghidorah and Rodan in Boston but sustains great amounts of injuries in the process. When Godzilla is greatly wounded after being dropped thousands of feet from the sky, Mothra stands between him and the approaching Ghidorah. In a nod to the original Japanese films, the Mothra featured in Godzilla: King of the Monsters was worshipped as a deity by a primitive culture living in the Yunnan Province, where her egg was stored away in an ancient temple upon being discovered by Monarch.

A giant cocoon was found within the temple, with a rapid heartbeat detected inside. Before the meltdown at Janjira inthe Brody family owned an aquarium that had a creature dubbed "Mothra" in it. Mothra is first seen as a larva hatching from her egg after being closely monitored by Monarch for years.

She becomes agitated when Monarch operatives fire electrical pulses at her and spit silk at them in defense, as well as flattening them with her massive bulk and devouring them in her 3-part mandibles. The Monarch scientists decide to terminate her before she can destroy the facility, but Dr. Now more relaxed, Mothra leans close towards Dr. Russell and her daughter, Madison, and allows them to touch her. Soon after, eco-terrorists raid the facility, killing all the Monarch personnel except for Emma and Madison, who they abducted.

Sensing danger, Mothra retreats into a waterfall before the eco-terrorists can capture her, and seals herself off in a cocoon. Sometime later, Mothra hatches from her cocoon in adult form and spreads her wings for the first time. She takes flight and later assists Monarch in discovering where Godzilla was regenerating after nearly being killed by the Oxygen Destroyer.

Mothra travels to Boston and assists Godzilla in his re-match against Ghidorah. She spits silk at Ghidorah, pinning him to the side of a building and allowing Godzilla to brutally ram him through.

The concept of Kong walking upright like a human was a design choice intended to give off the impression that it was its own species, over that of a silverback gorilla-like the film's incarnationor a generic "big monkey.

His stance, while upright unlike his counterpart, shows how his arms are longer than his legs, proportion wise, given him an unnatural appearance compared to a human, providing him with a distinctive silhouette.

Kong's upright stature is an intentional departure from the traditional, hunched-over posture of apes, as the producers said "it made him feel more like a god" as opposed to merely a big animal, and give people the visceral response of looking at a god. It also serves to pay homage to the original depictions of Kong as a person in a suit, given his more humanoid stance.

The overall design was created to be simple enough to be drawn by a third-grader, yet iconic enough to be immediately recognized. Another big part of the design was instilling a sense of divisiveness in the audience, where some see Kong as a threat, others a savior, and some a god.

In general, Kong has a rounded head and several scars three of them running diagonally from his left pectoral to the right side of his torso, and several more on the palm of his right hand after attempting to grab the rotating blades of a helicopter.

Kong is proven to be at least partly carnivorous, feeding on animals such as a Mire Squid that he killed. It's also implied that he ate one of Packard's soldiers, however, this is also proven to be inadvertent as the man falls into Kong's mouth while the latter holds a helicopter above himself as he roars.

Kong seems to show a great deal of loneliness, as a result to him losing his parents to the Skullcrawlers as an infant as well as being the last of his kind, his eyes well up with tears when Weaver gently touches him, and one of the cave paintings depicts him crouching and mourning over the remains of his deceased parents, the producers intentionally designed Kong to have a personality similar to a "teenager orphaned early and forced to assume adult responsibilities", is not yet fully grown but left to fend for himself, the director wanted to give the audience insight into Kong's state of mind of him being a lonely and exhausted god lumbering around the island, being its protector but also killing time as he drags himself from place to place.The MonsterVerse [1] is an American multimedia franchise and shared fictional universe that is centered on a series of monster films featuring Godzilla and King Kongproduced by Legendary Entertainment and co-produced and distributed by Warner Bros.
