King Ghidorah (キングギドラ) is a three-headed monster from the Godzilla films. He is often considered Godzilla's greatest archenemy. He appeared in 'Courage the Cowardly Dog' usually as stock footage and as a running gag.

In Courage the Cowardly Dog []

Season 2[]

Ghidorah first appears in "Courage in the Big Stinkin' City," when Courage opens a door in an abandoned building and Ghidorah is behind it, giving a loud roar, which scares Courage. In Nowhere TV when Le Quack turns on the television, it shows Ghidorah shooting out fire. He appears again in the episode "The Tower of Dr. Zalost", when he is shown roaring on the Bagges' TV.  

Season 3:[]

The last episode he was featured in is "Fishy Business." When Eustace was tasting a treat from Muriel's fish platter, he immediately spat out the food. The chewed up food flew onto the TV screen, as we can see King Ghidorah blasting Gravity Beams from his mouth. 

Trivia[]

  • In "Nowhere TV", When La Quack has Ghidorah shoots fire at Courage. Ghidorah has never had fire breath in any appearance, instead shooting electricity from his mouths; this ability is officially known as the "Gravity Beam".
  • In all of his appearances, Ghidorah is depicted using stock footage from his debut film, 1964's Ghidorah, the Three-Headed Monster. The design used in this film is officially referred to as "ShodaiGhido" ("shodai" being Japanese for "first"; the "shodai" prefix is applied to all monster designs in their first appearances, so for example, the 1954 Godzilla design is known as "ShodaiGoji", "Goji" being shorthand for Godzilla's Japanese name "Gojira").
