Skull Island is a location that was discovered in the 2017 film Kong: Skull Island. Surrounded by perpetual storms, it has remained uncharted and is one of the openings where the underground monsters can emerge to the surface.


Skull Island got its name from how the island resembles the shape of a human's skull.


Kong: Skull Island

On April 7, 1973, Skull Island is discovered via satellite imagery. Monarch official William Randa approaches and convinces Senator Willis to allow Monarch to accompany Landsat on a mission to the island with military support before the Russians stumble onto their discovery and go there first. Despite the heavy casualties, the expedition is a success.

Skull Island: The Birth of Kong

On August 7, 1995, a Monarch team led by Aaron Brooks goes on a secret expedition to Skull Island. In the end, Aaron becomes the only survivor and remains on Skull Island to help the Iwi in rebuilding their village.

Godzilla: King of the Monsters

When Ghidorah seemingly defeats Godzilla and becomes the new Alpha Titan, several creatures from Skull Island start to leave Skull Island to follow their new king. Hearing Ghidorah's call to hunt, the Skullcrawlers start waking from beneath the island and Kong has to make sure that none escape.[1] After Godzilla kills Ghidorah and becomes the Alpha Titan again, it's revealed that numerous Titans begin converging on Skull Island as the island grows unstable.

Local flora and fauna





  • As stated by Houston Brooks, the bedrock of Skull Island is practically hollow.
  • Like previous iterations of Skull Island, this one features a human skull etched into a mountain, albeit less prominently and made of separate rocks instead of one rock. This also serves as Kong's den.
