Let's face it, size matters, especially when it comes to Godzilla. For whatever reason, there seems to be a jockeying between Hollywood and Godzilla's home town for who can produce the largest Godzilla for the big screen (excluding anime). Back in 2014 Legendary pushed the envelope by making Godzilla a staggering 108 meters tall. At the time, this was the largest Godzilla to date. Toho's response? Make him BIGGER! So, in 2016 they released Shin-Gojira and trumped Legendary by 10.5 meters making Shin-Goji and impressive 118.5 meters tall! Well, it would seem the tail measuring continues...

According to a Japanese publication shared to Twitter recently, Godzilla's official height in Mike Dougherty's 2019 sequel is a massive 119 meters tall!

Quite hysterical when you think about it, Legendary took Shin-Gojira's record and added an extra half meter to Godzilla's height for King of the Monsters - making KOTM Goji the biggest Godzilla from any film to date, yet again!

Your move, Toho.

This also means Kong will need to seriously beef up for his match with Godzilla next year. Although we already know Kong was an adolescent in Kong: Skull Island, it will be difficult to size up a 119 meter tall Godzilla!

In addition to Godzilla's height in KOTM, the same publication also confirmed heights for Mothra, Rodan and Ghidorah as well:

Mothra: 15.8 meters

Rodan: 46.9 meters

Ghidorah: 158.8 meters

Will Toho keep the trend going and introduce an even larger Godzilla to the big screen next? We'll have to wait and see...

Why can they never just make completely even heights in metres anymore? My Canadian measurement standards are getting triggered by these almost-perfect numbers :P


AdminSpaceGodzillaApr-27-2019 6:53 AM

I'm with you lol where in Canada are you located?


MemberTitanosaurusApr-27-2019 7:32 AM

Windsor, right at the border with Detroit.

They had the PERFECT opportunity to make Godzilla an exact 120 metres tall like some of the classic TOHO era villain monsters, such as Destoroyah and Spacegodzilla.


MemberRodanApr-27-2019 8:53 AM


I know right? 


MemberTitanosaurusApr-27-2019 9:48 AM

That means there's only a 39 meter height difference between Godzilla and Ghidorah. I'm not sure how I feel about that. There was always a 50 meter difference in height between those two in the Showa and Heisei era. I thought 108 meters was a good height for Legendary. So why the sudden growth spurt? Maybe the prequel novel will explain? Anyways, I'll probably get over the height thing soon. I really can't complain about a bigger Godzilla.


MemberBaragonApr-27-2019 11:22 AM

 I wish we knew Ghidorahs wingspan though


MemberBaragonApr-27-2019 11:56 AM

I hope they make rodan and mothra bigger than their past counterparts it just makes sense you know.

MemberMothra LarvaeApr-27-2019 12:29 PM

Legendary Rodan is 3 meters shorter than the Showa Rodan, but his wingspan is waaaaaaaaaay bigger, like 145 meters larger. Same with deal with Legendary Mothra.

Do you people realize that Legendary Godzilla is now almost the same weight as Godzilla Earth? Earth is two and a half times bigger! 

This boi is THICCCCCC


MemberRodanApr-27-2019 12:42 PM

Yeah, Godzilla is T H I C C 


MemberBaragonApr-27-2019 1:25 PM

Well, I think this was unnecessary (the growth).


MemberBaragonApr-27-2019 3:47 PM

No way it's awesome! **** shin and Godzilla damn Kong that dirty ape. I grew up thinking Godzilla stood over 400 feet tall. I estimated a extra 50 feet for 15 feet on 30 stories  making my childhood normal Godzilla 450 feet tall and 950 feet long. Let's see him grow bigger for G3 and upgrade to G2000 dorsal plates.

99,634 metric tons (109,827.685153 US tons) is pretty lightweight if he's 393 feet (119.7864 meters) tall in this film.

Using the square-cube law, scaling a 355 foot (108.204 meter), 90,000 metric ton (99,208.017983 US ton) Godzilla to the 2019 version's height would put him at 122,105.464878 metric tons (134,598.235061 US tons). And, considering that he's even bulkier than in 2014, he could be closer to 125,000-130,000 metric tons (137,788.913866-143,300.47042 US tons).

Not really surprising because of how ridiculously large the anime Godzilla is.


MemberRodanApr-27-2019 10:46 PM

Really? .5 METERS LARGER?!!! ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!!!! Anyways I can't really complain, this way the king gets stronger and stronger every movie in BOTH series, two growing Godzillas for one!


MemberBaragonApr-28-2019 3:36 AM

Only a few meters difference, doesn't really impact the scale of them. But Shin Godzilla was quite a bit scarier though. Of course, G was portrayed as an outright villian in Shin, whereas it looks likes Godzilla will remain an anti-hero or outright hero in this one.

I know I'm late to this topic by two days, but I actually found out about this long before Chris even made the topic, and I was actually going to post it on the website, but the image I used was too big according to the website's standards. But still, point being, I was actually the first to make the topic for the website, but Chris beat me to it. Still, it is an awesome find. And I'm glad it is being talked about.

Have you thought that maybe it's your height when you lift your head to the sky to blast? Recall that unlike Shin, the position of LegendaryG. is less erect, more inclined.

Moldovan0731 honestly I agree.

MemberMothra LarvaeMay-03-2019 9:57 AM

ZillaDude345 I'm sure that Ghidorah has over 300 meters (over 1000 ft) to wingspan.
