My grandfather told me it wasn't always there. There was a village instead. And then one day a guy who was traveling in some other country came home. The village was gone, and that mountain was there. „

Godzilla: King of the Monsters

Methuselah, also dubbed Titanus Methuselah, is a giant animal-plant-rock hybrid[1] daikaiju created by Legendary Pictures that first appeared in the 2019 film, Godzilla: King of the Monsters, as a minor Titan that obeys Ghidorah and later Godzilla.

Name

"Methuselah" was a Biblical figure known for living a long time, a trait shared with almost all other uses of the word "Methuselah", including the oldest planet, the oldest star, and proteins that extend the lifespan of insects. This would suggest that Methuselah is ancient, even more so than the other Titans, but the significance of the name remains unknown.

Design

Appearance

Methuselah is a quadruped with a forest growing on his rocky back, with large white eyes and a mouth with large teeth. He also has large horns growing down from the top of his head that curl inwards, and his forelimbs are clawed while his hind limbs are hoofed. Leaks imply that Methuselah has a reptilian tail as well as large spines on his back similar to those of Godzilla, but it is unknown if these made it into the official design.

Portrayal

It is believed that Methuselah is portrayed through CGI and keyframe animation, although the portrayal is currently undefined. Methuselah moves slowly and clumsily due to the great weight of his back.

History

Middle Ages

According to legend, Methuselah destroyed a village in Munich, then settled down to sleep on its wreckage, where a forest grow on him and he was assumed to be a mountain until Monarch discovered his true origins.

Methuselah attacking
Held in Monarch Outpost 67, located in Munich, Germany, the Titan is designated as Titanus Methuselah and several x-rays are taken of him, one of which is briefly examined by Mark Russell as Methuselah's file is browsed. Later, Methuselah wakes from his slumber due to the calls of the new Alpha, Ghidorah. Following his new Alpha's orders, Methuselah proceeds to hunt on Earth with his new "pack", beginning by attacking a nearby railway in Munich.
Methuselah and MUTO

When Madison Russell activates the ORCA in Boston, Methuselah is one of the Titans to make the journey, despite being overseas. Either swimming or traveling through a Hollow Earth passageway, Methuselah does not move quickly enough to get to Boston before Godzilla kills Ghidorah. Unlike Rodan, Scylla, Behemoth, and MUTO 3, Methuselah does not confront Godzilla, but bows to him with the others, acknowledging him as his new Alpha.

Abilities

Camouflage

Due to his back being composed partially of rock and partially of vegetation, Methuselah can camouflage himself as a mountain, apparently very quickly.

Durability

Methuselah's back is extremely durable due to being partially rock, allowing him to withstand powerful attacks.

Strength and Combat

Methuselah can use his jaws and massive horns to inflict a great deal of damage and destruction.
