Whenever we talk about giant monsters Godzilla and King Kong are often viewed as the most worldwide because they are featured in most of the movies. In 1962’s King Kong vs. Godzilla, Japanese studio Toho made their own variation on Kong, with the added ability to absorb and then divide up the electricity.

It seems like Godzilla really has Kong on the ropes, even he is trying to burn his body at one point. Kong’s ability is to absorb electricity comes in handy when a bolt of lightning hits and revives him, and the fight again picks up intensity, coming to a climax, both monsters falling into the ocean. In the end, only Kong emerges from the water, but no one ever says that Godzilla actually died, and of course the legendary kaiju popped up again just two years later in Mothra vs. Godzilla.
