The Godzilla featured in Godzilla: Planet of the Monsters is the absolute largest Godzilla ever to be conceived. It seems the trend recently between Godzilla movies was to one-up the previous incarnation with each new film, making the King of all Monsters just a bit larger than its previous version. Up until the new anime film, Shin-Gojira held the title for largest Godzilla but now that title belongs to the new 2017 Godzilla.

Renowned artist Noger Chen created the following size comparison chart to showcase just how absurdly large the new 2017 Godzilla is when compared to every previous incarnation. Saying the new Godzilla dwarfs all other versions is really an understatement, check it out:

Man! I can't wait for Godzilla to be bigger then the earth, wait even better! Bigger than the galaxy itself!

Joking aside, he shouldn't get any bigger than 300 meters.

I think this Godzilla being this size is perfect, especially considering he is the ultimate creature of Earth. However it doesn't work for all Godzillas.

I love how insane the size difference is.


MemberTitanosaurusDec-24-2017 5:22 AM

Man...... I was writing a Godzilla that was the biggest ever.....


*Grumble grumble*

Dang... and people had a beef with me when I said Godzilla 2014 version should be at least 600 feet tall.. and TOHO goes and makes him 984 feet. Just a couple hundred feet shy of the empire state building.

Edwards version had the appearance.. on screen anyway.. of looking about 600 feet tall when next to buildings where specs were easy to get and compare. 

but of coarse.. it's a "movie" so.. grab your pop corn and your soda.. sit back and pay no mind to anything that would take away from the movie's overall theme.. because we all know that NObody cares about improprieties and discrepancies in the visuals ?

(I sure do)

At least the makers of Independence Day got things to scale and their visuals created a stunning depiction of a massive space ship covering a city.... 

and yet.. for Edward's Godzilla.. they could have made him 600 feet tall (come to think of it.. they originally wanted him to be that tall) .. but decided to  make him 355 ft.. and scale the buildings down to make him appear larger than life. 

Yes.. I was torqued about it then.. and moved on.. but NOW.. TOHO had to do this.. after the fact.. and now.. Hollywood can't ever make the claim that "size does matter'.. because TOHO OWNS GODZILLA.. and like I have said before.. they won't be outdone by Follywood.

Whats next? a Godzilla the size of a continent or a planet..... or a solar system.... or even a freaking Galaxy! (Gurren Lagann reference)

The Jurassic Bootleg

MemberBaragonDec-24-2017 8:42 AM


Or bigger than a multiverse!


MemberTitanosaurusDec-24-2017 9:42 AM

Bigger than an OMNIVERSE!

But don't worry..... I WILL one-up Toho and Polygon Pictures. Just you wait, anime! JUST YOU WAIT!

Godzilla: Eater of Space

Nonetheless, I like how this Godzilla is like a much older Godzilla 2014--who has continued growing to reach this point. The design resembles that concept.

what about bigger than a multi omniverse?

I like how people are complaining about this now, when there was a massive call for Godzilla to be this height in the 2014 movie. Some were so disappointed about G'14 "only" being 108 meters that when they watched the movie they tried to deny the official height as to short and ove-measure him based on other structures.

Been when Toho (really Polygon) does it, boy oh boy is that a sin.


MemberTitanosaurusDec-24-2017 11:35 AM

I think it's mostly to do with the comparative differences.

Previously, the largest film version was 100 meters. A little under 8 more meters wasn't a lot, and some folks wanted a more drastic difference. Even ShinGoji was only a little over 10 meters taller than LegendaryGoji, continuing the trend of incremental increases.

But this? This severely dwarfs EVERYTHING. The sheer size of the disparity throws people off, I guess.

I think this works better for animation and its established universe than it does live action. If it were live action and placed in a present day metropolitan area I'd have a bigger problem with it--The scaling isn't very relatable. But since cities, as we know them, no longer exist in this continuity and animation can get away with more, I'm alright with it. With nothing to immediately scale him to on-screen, it's not as noticeable.


MemberTitanosaurusDec-24-2017 2:27 PM

Shin Godzilla barely passes the kneecaps on Anime Godzilla. That's one big monster.

I'm curious how Mechagodzilla is going to fight Godzilla given that it was supposedly constructed when Godzilla was still only 50 meters tall. Perhaps they'll go with the IDW route and have an army of Mechagodzillas go up against Godzilla instead. Should be interesting to see no matter what.

Did anyone else notice that there is also a 50m 2017 Godzilla (lower right hand side).  It must have grown a lot while the humans were jumping through space.
