Your Top 5 Favorite Kaiju Of All Time14,778 Views12 RepliesAdd A Reply
There are many Kaiju from all over the world, but everyone has their favorites. This topic can be used to discuss your Top 5. This includes all Kaiju, not just Godzilla, Kong or Gamera. My list begins below and it is in order from fifth to first favorite.
Who doesn't love this awesome devil/dragon/demon/crab monster? Heisei Godzilla's final opponent, Destoroyah is a personal favorite Kaiju of mine because of how fearsome he is. He truly looks like and fits the bill as the "final boss" of the Godzilla series. I also really like to see this guy in Legendary's MonsterVerse. It would be awesome!
I don't know what I love about this guy so much, but I really like him. He looks fearsome and he's a really cool take on a new breed of Kaiju. While he was only in the first scene of Pacific Rim, his fight with Gipsy Danger was definitely my favorite part, and I think he was the most unique and cool monster in the film. I'd love to see him again perhaps in the sequel. Also, I really want to pick up that 7'' figure of him from NECA. It looks totally rad and it would make a neat addition to my shelf.
I will never not think of Ghidorah as Godzilla's true arch nemesis. He's the Joker to Godzilla's Batman. The Bowser to Godzilla's Mario. The Red Skull to Godzilla's Captain America and so on and so forth. I love Ghidorah's ancient, epic design and his awesome powers. I'd personally love to see him in a film of his own, but I doubt it'll ever happen. Still, I will always know this guy as the best Godzilla villain of them all.
2. Clover/Cloverfield Monster
I really love this monster and I'm not 100% sure why. Maybe it's the fact that he's an American kaiju that's unique and exciting. Maybe it's because he attacked New York, which is a state away from me. Or maybe because there's so much mystery surrounding him. While he was only in one movie that's now almost a decade old, I still think that his design is cool and interesting and I really want to see him again. I also love the concept of him dropping parasites.
1. Tie - Godzilla/Kong
What can I say? I love both of these monsters so much that I couldn't possibly decide between them. Godzilla's powerful, fearsome and the King of Monsters. Kong's mighty and agile, making him just as awesome. I like both of them so much for different reasons. Thus, they are ultimately tied for the spot of my favorite Kaiju.
Alright, I'm done. Now you guys go.
