Methuselah - Titans Explained

In Munich, Germany, love was in the air...sort of. Lara, a university student, and Jannik, a womanizer, were having a little picnic starting with a glass of champagne. When Jannik stared at the mountain, he tells Lara a story his grandfather once told him about a village that mysteriously disappeared and was replaced by a mountain. He even tries to play it up a little to get Lara to kiss him, but she backs away tells him that she likes men who don't litter. Once Lannik grabs the cork that landed in the grass he turns around and shrieks in horror seeing that the mountain is alive. Lara was confused and annoyed at first thinking Lannik was not being original by using the mountain to reel her in. Then, the ground began to shake under her.

Lara turns around and she sees the mountain was standing on four immense legs. The mountain had a face and horns like a bull. She watches the mountain walk off as the trees on its rocky back shivered and shook with each step. After the mountain left, Lara picked up the bottle of champagne and began drinking.

Not much is known about Titanus Methuselah despite making brief appearances in both the movie and the novel of Godzilla: King Of The Monsters. We know that he is responsible for making a whole village disappear in the middle ages. The last time we see Methuselah is at the end of the movie when Rodan, Behemoth, MUTO, and Scylla were gathering around and bowing to Godzilla. We also know that the name is based on a biblical figure in the book of Genesis.

"When Enoch had lived sixty-five years, he became the father of Methuselah. Enoch had walked with God after the birth of Methuselah three hundred years, and had other sons and daughters. Thus all the days of Enoch were three hundred and sixty-five years. Enoch walked with God; then he was no more, because God took him.

When Methuselah had lived one hundred eighty-seven years, he became the father of Lamech. Methuselah had lived after the birth of Lamech seven hundred eighty-two years, and had other sons and daughters. Thus all the days of Methuselah were nine hundred sixty-nine years; and he died." - Genesis 5; 21 - 27

Based on Methuselah's background, he was the oldest biblical figure. So the name for the monster could be hinting at it being the oldest living titan. Perhaps even older than Godzilla. This has begged the question for some fans why Methuselah is not the Alpha. The reason could be that he probably does not play much of an active role and he is just living his life just like Methuselah in the bible.

Overall, Methuselah has made quite an impression before the movie was released through tons of speculations. I think he was meant to replace Anguirus (one of Godzilla's older allies) based on the design. If he ever appears again in Godzilla vs Kong then I would like to see him partake an active role with Behemoth and Scylla as well.
