Titanus Yamata no Orochi
Godzilla: King of the Monsters
The Yamata no Orochi (八岐の大蛇?, lit. Big Snake Of Eight Branches) of the Yamata no OrochiMonsterVerse, also dubbed Titanus Yamata no Orochi, is a giant 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.
"Yamata no Orochi" is a dragon in Japanese legend, with eight heads and eight tails. It is unknown if Titanus Yamata no Orochi was misinterpreted by the ancient Japanese as the legendary dragon, or if Titanus Yamata no Orochi was codenamed by Monarch due to resembling the dragon to some extent.
At some point, Yamata no Orochi had Monarch Outpost 91 built around it in Mount Fuji, Japan. When Ghidorah calls all the Titans, Yamata no Orochi breaks free and begins to hunt with its new pack. When the ORCA calls all Titans to Boston, Yamata no Orochi does not arrive in time to see Godzilla become the new Alpha of all Titans (except Kong).
- The outpost Yamata no Orochi was contained in, Monarch Outpost 91, is a possible reference to the 1991 Toho film Godzilla vs. King Ghidorah.
