Camazotz, also dubbed Titanus Camazotz, is a giant bat-like daikaiju created by Legendary Pictures for the MonsterVerse, that will appear in GvK: Kingdom Kong, in which he will fight Kong before the events of Godzilla vs. Kong.
"Camazotz", literally "death bat", was a Mayan bat god associated with night, death and sacrifice. This name was likely chosen due to Camazotz's strong resemblance to a bat and due to his god-like status as a Titan capable of challenging Kong. It is also possible that Camazotz himself was the Mayan bat god.
Camazotz is a massive cream-colored creature with demonic horns and facial features, as well as large bat-like wings covered in long, sharp spikes. He also has what appears to be black-colored fur covering the entirety of his torso and parts of his neck. His jaws are filled with dozens of jagged, dagger-like teeth.
Camazotz and his species come from the same era and ecosystem as the other Titans, but seemingly went into dormancy for unknown reasons. At some point, Camazotz encountered the ancient Mayan civilization and was worshipped by them for a time. The Mayans prophesied that Camazotz would one day emerge from the Hollow Earth and wreak havoc once again.
Godzilla: King of the Monsters
At the end credits of the movie, one of the images shows a bat using echolocation and it's a possible reference to Camazotz.
Despite his large size and weight, Camazotz's wings allow him to fly. However, his speed and aerial capabilities have yet to be revealed.
It's unknown if Camazotz has any weaknesses or not.
- Camazotz is first referenced in an excerpt of Dr. Ilene Chen's notes taken from The Popul Vuh in Godzilla: King of the Monsters - The Official Movie Novelization.
- Camazotz resembles the Giant Bat from Godzilla: The Series.
