The SokogekiGhido (総攻撃ギド,   SōkōgekiGido?) is the King Ghidorah suit design used in the 2001 Godzilla film, Godzilla, Mothra and King Ghidorah: Giant Monsters All-Out Attack.


Name

The SokogekiGhido's name comes from Godzilla, Mothra and King Ghidorah: Giant Monsters All-Out Attack's Japanese title, specifically sōkōgeki (総攻撃?), meaning all-out attack, and Ghido, which comes from King Ghidorah's name.

Detail

The SokogekiGhido suit is based on the original ShodaiGhido suit, but with more modern updates. The wings are more dragon-like in appearance, the heads looks very similar to that of a mythological dragon, the scales are very dragon-like in appearance as well, and the feet are also very dragon-like in appearance. As with the HeiseiGhido suit, the eyes on the SokogekiGhido suit are also colored red, but the pupils appear more human-like in appearance, much like the ShodaiGhido suit.

One thing to note about the SokogekiGhido suit is that it has Varan-like fins on each side of all three heads. This is mainly because Fuyuki Shinada, who designed the suits for all the monsters in Godzilla, Mothra and King Ghidorah: Giant Monsters All-Out Attack, was disappointed that Varan, his all-time favorite monster, wasn't going to be in the film. Seeing as Varan, along with Anguirus, were supposed to be in the movie at first instead of Mothra and King Ghidorah, he compromised by putting Varan's facial fins on each side of all three heads of this suit.

Trivia

  • The SokogekiGhido suit was also used to characterize King Ghidorah in Toho's CR Godzilla 3S-T Battle games in 2006 and 2010.[1]
  • The SokogekiGhido suit varies from other King Ghidorah suits as in the odd placement of the heads and its short necks. It is possible that King Ghidorah's side heads might have been controlled by the actor's arms at some points.
  • Despite Shusuke Kaneko's intention on making the monsters smaller and weaker to make Godzilla the strongest monster in the film, the SokogekiGhido suit was actually the same height as the SokogekiGoji suit, this is shown in the scene where King Ghidorah lets go of Godzilla after giving him electrical bites and leaves him to fall onto a building.[2]
