Obviously by hooking him up with a 3-for-one Groupon for a haberdashery

You convince him that your alien species is the best to work for? And if he fails, you fire him?

Seriously, i think the aliens just have good mind control technology that just warps his mind into doing things for them.

I heard that's why he fired his agent.
Are you saying that I put an abnormal brain into a 7 1/2 foot long, 54 inch wide....Gorilla! Is that what you're telling me?

Looks to me like he is just easily controlled which ironically contradicts his "destroyer of worlds" schtick. I guess you just need to have decent mind control technology.

ToMG and G vs SG show that almost any kaiju could be controlled with the proper technology, and those were human technologies that were likely years behind what the alien races had.

GvSG is a Heisei movie. Even then the mind control results were definitely limited.

Hello, old thread! I was surprised to see that people kept finding and responding to it over the years! Having watched Godzilla vs Kong just hours ago, I now have some new thoughts to add to this discussion! Naturally, there will be major SPOILERS below, so if you haven't seen the film yet, look out!

So, throughout both the Showa and Heisei eras, King Ghidorah has, despite often having the reputation of being a destroyer of worlds, been depicted as the easy tool of alien civilizations. This had always bugged me somewhat, as I felt like it diminished the character of this overwhelming space demon that had annihilated Venus and its civilization, along with numerous other worlds, supposedly. On three sperate occasions, alien invaders had enslaved him seemingly without any difficulty whatsoever.

This trend largely continued in the Millennium series, as aside from GMK, where he was a hero, he was once again being controlled by aliens in Final Wars.
Spoiler:
But Legendary Ghidorah seems to be the complete opposite. He seems to have his own (highly destructive) goals and plans, and even after being defeated by Godzilla in King of Monsters, he seems to actively manipulate the humans in Godzilla vs Kong, faking being under their control until the very minute they finish his new body, before immediately betraying and killing them. That is quite the departure from how the monster is typically depicted, and I feel it really gives him a sinister edge. Legendary kaiju in general seem quite intelligent, and so, for the ultimate evil that is Ghidorah, it is quite refreshing to see him essentially declare that he is no one's pawn!

Spoiler:
It is entirely the reason Legendary Ghidorah is by far my fav version of the character. He is the one calling the shots, even pulling a fast one on those who try to use his power for their gain even as a lone skull! This Ghidorah has menace and more importantly an agency to him which is shockingly lacking for the terror of the stars and it is wonderfully refreshing. He is evil, dangerous, powerful, cunning and a worthy rival to the King of the Monsters if there ever was.
And yeah always open to reigniting topics for discussion.
