On July 21, 2018, Dougherty revealed that Bear McCreary will compose the film's score, incorporating themes from Akira Ifukube's previous Godzilla scores. Regarding his involvement, McCreary stated, "I am thrilled to be the composer for Godzilla: King of the Monsters, and honored beyond words to have the opportunity to contribute to one of cinema's longest-running musical legacies." The first trailer featured a rearrangement of Claude Debussy's Clair de Lune by Michael Afanasyev for Imagine Music. McCreary further expanded on his plans and involvement, stating, "I've known Michael Dougherty for a long time, as we both run in the same film-nerd circles. I have always appreciated his love of film music, chatting with him for hours on end over the years about the scores we both love. I was thrilled for him when he landed the gig to direct Godzilla, because I knew what it meant to him. When he later asked me to join the project, I was overwhelmed with excitement, and awe, grateful for the chance to join him in contributing to the legacy of our favorite monster. We knew from the beginning that we wanted to incorporate classic [Akira] Ifukube themes, and yet I think fans will be excited to hear how they have evolved. There are some fun surprises in store. Fitting the material and Michael's visionary film, this score is the most massive I have ever written, and I can't wait for fans to experience it!" In November 2018, a sample of McCreary's Godzilla theme was leaked online after it was used during a panel at Tokyo Comic Con.

The Director posted an image of the Oxygen Destroyer on Twitter during the days of filming. The OD was used in the first Godzilla film (1954), to defeat Godzilla. In the 90's Heisei series, which are all films that tie into the original 54 movie and its reboot of the franchise Godzilla 1984, Godzilla Vs Destroyah (94) was released. The monster Destroyah was a creation that spawned as a direct result of the OD being used in the original 54 film. The Director of Godzilla King of the Monsters, has stated that, "...the Oxygen Destroyer is relevant to the movie, and is not a simple cameo, their are also several other weapons and things being created...". This could be a set up to bring in Destoryah for the next movie in the series, Godzilla Vs. Kong due out in 2020.
