Mortally wounded on the ground, Emma looked up at Ghidorah and said "Long live the King" as her final words. Ghidorah turned to see Godzilla, covered in glowing orange cracks and emitting intense heat, approaching him.
Godzilla emitted a nuclear pulse shaped like Mothra's wings and making the sound of her roar, with Ghidorah trying to shield his heads with his wings.
The blast incinerated the flesh on Ghidorah's wings, and he fired his gravity beams at Godzilla, Godzilla was unaffected and unleashed another pulse, disintegrating Ghidorah's left and right heads.
Godzilla stomped on Ghidorah's chest as the accumulated nuclear energy inside him exploded, leveling a huge portion of the city.
When the smoke cleared, Ghidorah's last remaining head emerged from the rubble, hanging from Godzilla's mouth. Godzilla fired his atomic breath, which incinerated the head and reduced Ghidorah to nothing but ash.
King Ghidorah has had a number of changes made to himself over the years, but most of his traditional battle characteristics have remained the same.
His different forms in the different movies have their own abilities. King Ghidorah is able to fly up to speeds of Mach 3 in the Earth's atmosphere.
He exceeds this speed while flying through space. Gigan he encases himself in a large diamond-like structure while traveling through space.
King Ghidorah's most famous ability is the golden lightning bolt-like gravity beams he spits from his three mouths.
These beams are roughly equal in power to Godzilla's atomic breath, and are capable of causing large-scale explosions when fired at buildings.
King Ghidorah can produce hurricane-force winds by flapping his wings, which are capable of blowing away buildings and knocking other kaiju off their feet.
His most dramatic demonstration of this ability was in episode 5 of Zone Fighter. King Ghidorah , King Ghidorah constricted his necks around Godzilla in an attempt to strangle him, causing him to foam at the mouth.
He has also used this ability in various games and comics. King Ghidorah is usually portrayed as being extremely durable and resistant to damage, often to an extent close to Godzilla.
He withstands conventional weaponry with no noticeable effect, and can even shrug off point-blank blasts from Godzilla's atomic breath. King Ghidorah , he survives having his middle head decapitated and his wings shredded, and remains alive but comatose for over years laying on the sea floor.
In Godzilla, Mothra and King Ghidorah: Giant Monsters All-Out Attack , King Ghidorah's durability is reduced, but he still survives being knocked out by Godzilla multiple times and withstands multiple blasts from his atomic breath.
In Godzilla: King of the Monsters , he is unaffected by the Oxygen Destroyer , which leaves Godzilla critically injured. While he is eventually overwhelmed by Godzilla's nuclear pulses, he remains alive even when reduced to a single head.
King Ghidorah tends to use his durability to his advantage, as he often prefers to escape from a battle that he can't win before he suffers more injuries than necessary.
The book Mothra 3 Ultra Complete Works suggests that King Ghidorah could still regenerate from the wing that Armor Mothra severs in their final battle.
He performs a similar attack in Godzilla: King of the Monsters after aborbing energy from a power station, stunning and injuring Godzilla while shooting down multiple helicopters and fighter jets.
In Rebirth of Mothra III , King Ghidorah is able to create a dome that allows objects to pass through, yet has a corrosive effect when they try to leave.
The dome's exterior is laced with tentacles that pull outside victims inside. Living creatures inside the dome slowly have their life-force drained and transferred to King Ghidorah.
After absorbing Mothra 's power and becoming King Ghidorah, this ability is replaced by his traditional gravity beams.
King Ghidorah can release this energy shield and send it colliding with the ground, which will cause a massive explosion.
In Ghidorah, the Three-Headed Monster , while encased in the meteorite, King Ghidorah had the ability to generate what appeared to be magnetic fields that varied in strength from time to time.
While it was never stated directly what purpose they served, it was stated that they were somehow connected to its powers.
It seems possible that King Ghidorah used them as a form of levitation. In Zone Fighter , King Ghidorah seems to retain his control over gravity, managing to suspend several cars midair above a research institute.
King Ghidorah is able to maintain the presence of his magnetic pull for roughly ten seconds before halting the attack and needing to recharge in order to reuse the attack.
Locked in battle with three Evangelion units in Osaka -III, Godzilla suddenly spit his atomic breath into the sky, where it struck an invisible target and triggered a fiery explosion.
The explosion congealed into the form of King Ghidorah, who descended into the city and confronted Godzilla.
Godzilla fired his atomic breath, but King Ghidorah deflected it and caused it to scatter in several directions. King Ghidorah then fired his gravity beams which lifted the surrounding buildings into the air before hurling them at Godzilla.
With Godzilla incapacitated, the Evangelion Units attempted to fight King Ghidorah themselves, but to no avail. Godzilla got back to his feet, and King Ghidorah flew toward him.
Godzilla then proceeded to fire his dorsal plate beams at King Ghidorah, knocking him backwards. Godzilla continued to barrage King Ghidorah with his atomic breath until his body ceased glowing and he entered a state of suspended animation.
King Ghidorah got back up, and the three Evangelion Units continued trying to fight him. Unit and Unit jumped onto King Ghidorah, only to be shot back by his gravity beams.
Unit then tore off a spike from a nearby tower and plunged it into King Ghidorah's chest, causing the space monster to crash into the buildings below.
The pilots wondered if they had succeeded before King Ghidorah rose from the rubble completely unharmed. He turned his wrath toward the motionless Godzilla, blasting him with his gravity beams.
Godzilla awakened and began to emit a purple glow once again, then fired forth his atomic breath. Godzilla's beam locked with King Ghidorah's gravity beams, and eventually began to overpower them and push closer and closer to King Ghidorah.
As Godzilla's atomic breath finally reached and struck King Ghidorah, it triggered a blinding explosion.
When the smoke cleared, the Evangelion Units were unharmed and King Ghidorah was nowhere to be found. His enemy defeated, Godzilla returned to the sea peacefully and dove beneath the waves.
King Ghidorah is the most physically powerful monster in the universe, and blends immense size, incredible strength, and near invulnerability into a unified engine of monstrous destruction.
The Vortaak often hesitate to deploy King Ghidorah at all, lest he demolish their enemies and leave nothing to subjugate. King Ghidorah is at home in the vacuum of space, and travels between planets under his own power.
King Ghidorah's wings allow him to fly in Earth 's atmosphere, though his great mass hinders his aerial mobility.
He naturally generates intense electrical energy that he unleashes as a powerful Triple Gravity Beam from his three heads.
Despite all this, King Ghidorah's greatest ability is his asset to withstand damage-all known forms of attack splinter against his thick golden scales.
King Ghidorah appears as a boss on multiple levels, and an ending boss on the final level of some paths.

In the final moments of the battle, King Ghidorah III shot a gravity beam through Godzilla's neck, seriously wounding him.
In response, Godzilla unleashed a stronger version of his Atomic Breath dubbed the 'Nuclear Typhoon', which blasted off King Ghidorah III's left and right necks, but leaving the middle intact.
Forced to retreat, King Ghidorah III flew away as Godzilla passed out from blood loss as a result of the shot to his neck.

Suddenly, both kaiju heal and get back up, then relentlessly attack Godzilla together in a recreation of Tokyo in Hell, surrounded by a wall of flesh.
Any time any of the three monsters were killed or mortally wounded, they instantly recovered and continued their assault. Godzilla eventually tricked King Ghidorah and Destoroyah into aiding him in escape by ducking when they both fired their beams and combining his beam with them, creating a blast powerful enough to destroy the wall.
As Godzilla marched onward, King Ghidorah, Destoroyah, and everything else on the battlefield besides Godzilla disappeared into nothingness.
In Godzilla: Oblivion , King Ghidorah attacked and chased the humans visiting the alternate dimension in which he lived.
