Methuselah, also dubbed Titanus Methuselah, is a minor character in the 2019 film, Godzilla: King of the Monsters. He is a giant animal-plant-rock hybrid daikaiju who appears as a minor Titan that obeys Ghidorah and later Godzilla.


Methuselah was awakened from his slumber in Germany by King Ghidorah's call, which also awakened many other Titans around the world. Methuselah erupted from underground, the mountain above him being revealed to actually be part of his body. Like the other Titans, Methuselah rampaged through populated areas, tearing through structures with his horns. Eventually, he made his way to Boston along with Scylla, Behemoth, and the six-legged MUTO. There, they found the alpha they were following, Ghidorah, slain at the hands of Godzilla. Rodan approached Godzilla to challenge him, but was intimidated by his gaze and ultimately submitted. The other Titans all followed suit, each "bowing" in their own way to the new King of the Monsters.



Due to his shell being capable of starting and supporting life, Methuselah can camouflage himself as a mountain simply by growing a forest on his shell. This can apparently be done very quickly.


Methuselah's armour-plated shell is extremely durable, allowing him to withstand powerful attacks.

Strength and Combat

Methuselah can inflict a great deal of damage and destruction.


The only notable ability Methuselah demonstrates is the capacity to inflict destruction using the massive horns on his head.



  • The outpost Methuselah was contained in, Monarch Outpost 67, is a possible reference to the 1967 Toho film Son of Godzilla.
  • When Methuselah was first shown in a trailer for Godzilla: King of the Monsters, he was widely believed to be Anguirus or Baragon. 
  • Methuselah was created to show that Titans could be a part of the natural world.
