Although some might try and chock it up as Toho not having a good grasp on measuring mass for their Kaiju, you have to remember that the larger an animal gets, the larger it becomes in overall mass exponentially, thus meaning it gets heavier overall as it keeps getting bigger and bigger. Factor in the fact that a Kaiju-sized creature is composed of denser and more heavy-set materials than an ordinary animal, and that further multiplies its mass to be proportionately larger than normal. The more realistic weights of the Kaiju in Pacific Rim, if you think about it, isn't as realistic for those sizes as some may believe.

godzilla is ridiculously strong and dense, the density of his muscle and bone are the biggest contributers to his toughness, oh, and godzilla has been much heavier than that in some movies!

The opinion of THEGMAN123 is the true. The weights of TOHO, in relation with the sizes of they kaiju, are the most realistic of all. The weighs or Pacific Rim are exageratelly small, an animal of that height and weight "Slattern" will be like a huge bear (3 m tall) with the weight of a jaguar (120 kg)!!! It will break itself with a single strike of Godzilla's tail.

Weren't the kaiju from Pacific Rim Silicon-based life-forms with spunge-like monofillaments for muscle? I seem to rememebr reading something concerning the topic of their weight. If I'm not mistaken PR's kaiju were designed to be light-weight in order to maintain the ability to move and survive in Earth's gravity. On the other hand, Godzilla is a pure flesh and blood carbon-based beastie. All that tissue and bone is going to have a stupendous weight! Consider - oh, what's it called? - Seismosaurus. It was one of the largest land animals to have ever walked the face of the planet and is theorized to have weighed over 200,000lbs! That's roughly 100 tons! I know that's pigeon feathers compared to Godzilla, but it's still quite an impressive mass.

At a guess... I'd say that Snickers deal.

@Somthingreal

i think your spot on about the Pacific  Rim Kaiju. Also godzilla would have to be dense to support his weight.
