Overview

Sekhmet, also dubbed Titanus Sekhmet, is a giant lion-like daikaiju created by Legendary Pictures that appears in Legendary's 2019 film, Godzilla: King of the Monsters, as an ancient carving and later as a name briefly seen on a monitor.

Name

"Sekhmet" was a warrior and healing goddess in Ancient Egyptian mythology, a solar and war deity (often another form of either the love goddess Hathor or the cat goddess Bast) depicted as a lioness whose breath was said to form deserts.

Design

Appearance

Though not seen physically in the film, Sekhmet can be seen as an ancient carving in the opening sequence of Godzilla: King of the Monsters. In the carving, Sekhmet greatly resembles a lioness with a thin mane of fur growing from her head and down the length of her back. Her most notable differences appear to be a pair of avian-like hindlimbs with grasping claws, and a pair of feathery wings sprouting from her shoulders. Michael Dougherty has reiterated that Sekhmet has feline traits akin to a sphinx or a lioness.[1]

History

Godzilla: King of the Monsters

At some point, Monarch discovered Sekhmet hibernating in Cairo, Egypt, and subsequently built Outpost 65 around her. When Ghidorah calls upon all the Titans, Sekhmet breaks free and begins to hunt with her new pack, destroying a railway amongst other structures. When the ORCA calls all Titans to Boston, Sekhmet does not arrive in time for the battle and does not see Godzilla become the new alpha of all Titans (except Kong).
