Whereas Mothra and Kong are both established as sympathetic monsters.

Another fun fact: King Kong vs. Godzilla was built from a concept by the original Kong FX artist, Willis O'Brien, for a King Kong vs. Frankenstein (later King Kong vs. Prometheus) movie.
To be fair, one of Mothra vs. Godzilla's most prominent alt titles is Godzilla vs. The Thing, so she definitely gets the short shaft in that billing.
