Godzilla is 177 meters high and weighs 90,000 tons. King Kong is 103 meters tall and weighs more than 50,000 tons. Who will win the annual competition? Bets are open!
Every generation has its monsters. Frankenstein, Dracula, aliens, Godzilla (originally from Japan) and King Kong have become monsters that can become toys for boys and girls in different generations.
In the year of the 2021 pandemic, the cinema resurrected two old monsters. Remember them, King Kong and Godzilla are neither for Gen Z, nor even rap, saving the couplet. But Godzilla vs. Nowadays, King Kong is a movie that the little hero adds to the cinema.
“Cover” and keep a distance, but at the premiere of the film, two huge imaginary animals beat each other (it is necessary to see if they saved or destroyed the world), bringing the public back to the cinema.
Who won this fight?
This naive question has kept the tension in the generations of science fiction novels still present. Some are gorillas and some are lizards.
In 1963, in the movie “King Kong War”. Godzilla (Kong) is the winner, and you have to watch the recently released Warner movie to see if Godzilla lost the title of King of Monsters in Godzilla Showdown.hole
However, if you must bet, then you will have to know who is who.
Godzilla is 177 meters high and weighs 90,000 tons. Kong is 103 meters high and weighs 50,000 tons. Therefore, in terms of weight, Godzilla seems to have the upper hand.
Land animals of this size are simply impossible. They can’t support his weight, can’t pump blood through the body, can’t send signals through nerves at an effective speed, or can’t prevent a fatal rise in temperature.
This is why the largest terrestrial animals in history (sauropod dinosaurs of the Jurassic and Cretaceous) reached a peak of about 100 tons. In addition, these giants are quadrupeds, using four cylindrical limbs to support their mass. The size limit for bipeds is lower, and may be 20 tons or less.
But, in addition to destroying the illusions allowed by the beast battle, let’s see who can win the battle.
Godzilla, armored lizard
Godzilla’s pointed back plate can pierce metal. They did not call him the king of monsters in vain. First of all, it is armored, and its appearance is reminiscent of lizards like Komodo dragons and dinosaurs like Ankylosaurus, both of which have bone plates embedded in their skins.
Ankylosaurus board has an interlocking fiber structure similar to Kevlar, which prevents tooth penetration.
Godzilla is also protected by a sharp backplane, which is hard enough to penetrate metal. If the opponent does not fall apart, an offense from above will not work.
Godzilla’s size, tapered teeth and bushy jaw suggest a cruel bite.
No rigorous bite force test has been performed on Godzilla, but the force it generates is dozens or hundreds of times greater than the force calculated for him. Tyrannosaurus . These are 57,000 Newtons. More than 900 kilograms per square centimeter is enough to cut body parts and fracture bones.
However, Godzilla hardly needs to use jaws, because his huge jagged tail can be used as a long-range weapon.
We know from previous battles that Godzilla’s tail can be used in the form of a stick. By expanding the work done on the tails of armed dinosaurs, we can conservatively estimate that Godzilla’s tail may hit with an astronomical force of more than 22 million Newtons, which is equivalent to a mass of 2000 tons. Godzilla’s tail is more than 100 meters long, so it is difficult to get close to him without being hit.
It is radioactive and can shoot enemies with a breathing beam over 500,000°C
Godzilla’s ultimate weapon gave him a huge advantage: it is radioactive and can shoot enemies with a beam of breathing over 500,000°C. This ability does not exist in the real world. The closest analog may be the superheated liquid aerosol made by the Bombardier beetle, which is released at a temperature of about 100°C. This is lethal to animals of similar size.
King Kong’s advantage lies in his brain
The fact that Kong has a huge gorilla allows us to make some estimates of his abilities.
A punch or even a slap from his hand can generate millions of Newtons of force, and the fact that each of his arms is more than 70 meters long makes him extremely dangerous in close contact. He is fast and agile, he can jump and run.
The hole also has a tough bite. A gorilla can exert a bite force of about 91 kilograms per square centimeter. The larger size of Kong means that the bite force may be 100 times larger.
Despite possessing such cruel power and strength, Kong’s greatest advantage lies in his wit.
As a primate, especially a great ape, it has advanced planning ability, can change its behavior and understand strange situations, which is more than animals can do.
Like an ape in the real world, you will almost certainly have a “theory of mind”-able to predict the intentions of others, especially opponents. Facts have proved that this is essential to give Kong a certain advantage.
Obviously, the battle is about to end. We cannot rule out the possibility that Kong might try his luck, or use his ingenuity to lure Godzilla into a trap or throw a weapon quite far away.
However, nuclear-powered armored reptiles have superheated atomic breathing and a huge jagged tail over 100 meters long, making them almost unparalleled opponents. Do we believe that King Kong’s talents helped him out of trouble?
