What was your favorite of every single kaiju battle you've ever seen?
My favorite has to have been Burning Godzilla vs Destroyah but it might change after Godzilla King of the Monsters releases.
THEY HAVE AS KING OVER THEM, THE ANGEL OF THE ABYSS. A STAR FALLEN FROM HEAVEN TO EARTH, HE OPENED THE SHAFT OF THE BOTTOMLESS PIT, AND FROM THE SHAFT ROSE SMOKE LIKE THAT OF A GREAT FURNACE, AND THE SUN AND THE AIR WERE DARKENED...
No big surprise since it's my favorite Godzilla film overall, but I love the tag-team match in Godzilla vs. Gigan, especially toward the end when the Big G has taken his beatings and then powers on through and beats the bejunior out of Gigan and Ghidorah. That finale to me cemented to my young eyes why it was that super lizard was going to be my hero for all times.

I’d say either one of the Godzilla vs. Kiryu fights of the early Showa fights against Ghidorah.
“Banana oil.”- George Takei, Gigantis: The Fire Monster
Godzilla, Mothra and Rodan vs King Ghidrah in Invasion of Astro-Monster
Godzilla and Jet Jaguar vs Megalon and Gigan in Godzilla vs Megalon
Godzilla vs Titanosaurus and Mechagodzilla in Terror of Mechagodzilla
Godzilla vs King Caesar, Angilas, and Rodan in Final Wars
Godzilla and Company VS King Ghidorah (All Monsters Attack)
Godzilla, Mothra, and Rodan VS King Ghidorah
Burning Godzilla VS Destroyah
Godzilla and Jet Jaguar VS Megalon
Godzilla VS Zilla (Final Wars, Even though it lasts like 5 seconds)
Godzilla VS Mechagodzilla final battle (Original)
Godzilla VS MUTOs
Godzilla VS Biollante final battle3

To me, the fights are only as good as the stakes raised by the stories. There's definitely a few exceptions based on circumstance and aesthetics, but usually I don't care about a battle if there aren't some deep ramifications connected to the characters, fate of the country/planet, objects lost in the battle, etc.
But if I were to make a Top 10 (and I HATE making lists, so the fact this exists from me is a small miracle) I'd likely settle on this:
10) Godzilla & Jet Jaguar vs. Megalon & Gigan (Godzilla vs. Megalon)
9) Mothra vs. Gigan (Godzilla: Final Wars)
8) Godzilla vs. Baragon (Godzilla, Mothra, King Ghidorah: Giant Monsters All-Out Attack)
7) Godzilla vs. MechaGodzilla (Godzilla vs. MechaGodzilla '74)
6) Earth's Monsters vs. King Ghidorah (Destroy All Monsters)
5) Godzilla vs. Destoroyah (Godzilla vs. Destoroyah)
4) Godzilla vs. Anguirus (Godzilla Raids Again)
3) Godzilla vs. Adult Mothra (Mothra vs. Godzilla '64)
2) Godzilla, Rodan & Mothra vs. King Ghidorah (Ghidorah: The Three Headed Monster)
1) Godzilla vs. Kong (King Kong vs. Godzilla)

My two favorites are the battle between Godzilla and Kiyru in Tokyo S.O.S, and Godzilla vs Titanosaurus and MechaG 2 from Terror of Mechagodzilla. Ya gotta give the big guy credit for taking on two of the strongest kaiju in the Showa era

Im Durp #TeamRodan
I've always really liked the battle in Raids Again with Godzilla and Anguirus
My Favourite battles would have to be Godzilla Vs Mechagodzilla/Titanosaurus from the Showa series no matter how campy it is!. Heisei fights normally involved around beam battles which does ruin the mood for me but it still entertaining, anyways Burning Godzilla Vs Destoroyah for the Heisei series. And for the Millennium series I would definitely go for the fights in GMK, Godzilla Aganist Mechagodzilla, Godzilla Tokyo SOS and from Final Wars.
