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 a name briefly seen on a monitor.
"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.
Sekhmet is said to have feline traits akin to a sphinx or a lioness.
At some point, Sekhmet had Monarch Outpost 65 built around her in Cairo, Egypt. When Ghidorah calls 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).
- The outpost Sekhmet was contained in, Monarch Outpost 65, is a possible reference to the 1965 Toho film Invasion of Astro-Monster.
- The train wreckage that Sekhmet caused is a reutilized shot of the train wreckage seen in the 2012 Comic-Con trailer and the official teaser trailer for Godzilla.
- Her general description as lion-shaped along with her emergence in a Middle-Eastern country are similar to the appearances of the Griffons in Monster Apocalypse and Norzzug in Godzilla: The Series.
