Powers: Rhiahn was an immense monster, approximately 100' in length. It had great strength (@ Class 100) and durability. It possessed a large disc-like head filled with razor sharp teeth. It possessed two clawed forelimbs, as well as two rear tentacles, which it could whirl like a propeller to take flight. It could also use the propeller as a weapon, with which it could cut through titanium steel in seconds. It's powers were further enhanced, to an uncertain degree by the Energex ray of the Megans.

History: Like the other Mega-Monsters, Rhiahn was taken from its native planet and forced into serving as a warrior against the Beta-Beasts, agents of the Betans. Nothing is known about Rhiahn prior to its arrival on Earth, where it was sent by the Warlords of Mega, in a plan to conquer Earth to use for resources in the war against the Betans. The initial plan was to have the Mega Monsters wipe out the most powerful threats against takeover. Another Mega Monster, Triax, was sent to battle Red Ronin, but when the Betans sent Godzilla to assist Ronin, the Megans sent Rhiahn, and the other Mega Monster, Krollar against them as well.

After a somewhat even battle, Rhiahn succeeded in decapitating Red Ronin, incapacitating it. As Godzilla faced the three Monsters alone, the Megans further enhanced the powers of the Mega Monsters via their Energex Ray. Despite this increased power, the Monsters were unable to overcome the power of Godzilla. Rhiahn was the last to fall, when Godzilla forced its own propeller-like tail to cut off its head.
