Yes, and no. The creature is three headed like King Ghidorah, with very Chinese dragon-influenced faces (like Ghidorah) with two wings and many other strongly relations to the Japanese original. However, this incarnation possess none of his powers, and apparently its only use is as a mode of transportation. Whether a blatant rip-off or paying homage to the beloved Godzilla franchise character, the director Stephen Sommers has not commented.
In this film, King Ghidorah could use his powerful necks to strangle Godzilla. After being reconstituted as a cyborg, Mecha-King Ghidorah lost that ability but was equipped with several electrified manacles and the G-grasper, a mechanical harness mounted on its chest plate.
Yes, sort of. Unlike most movies that have an black backdrop during the credits, Heisei Godzilla films had special footage that played during the credits. In this one we see the thought to be dead Godzilla rise and roar menacingly at the audience from his watery grave, and the monster King then snarls as the waters churn.
