Serving as the fifth installment in the MonsterVerse series, Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire diverges from the epic clash between the two iconic kaiju seen in its predecessor.

This change takes place as Godzilla undergoes a healing hibernation phase following the events of Godzilla vs. Kong.

Based on speculations and analysis, the shift in color suggests an evolution in Godzilla. It hints at the possibility that during the hibernation phase, Godzilla undergoes a power-up, potentially triggered by an evolutionary process or exposure to a distinct form of radiation, resulting in the acquisition of the pink form.

Godzilla's nuclear reserves emit high-energy levels beyond the ultraviolet range, and when combined with his physiology, it produces specific colors. Previously blue and now transformed through evolution, it now manifests as pink.
