RUUUNNN! It’s GODZILLA! Or Otachi! Or Gamera! Or any giant beast more commonly referred to by the Japanese word “Kaiju” or “strange beast”! These movie monsters have frightened international audiences since the 1950’s when “Godzilla” made his big screen debut, tapping into our primal fears! Godzilla’s success spawned dozens of sequels, reboots, knock offs and an endless rogues gallery of enemy monsters to pit against one another. Most of them are enemies but many of them are misunderstood defenders of the universe! All of this got us wondering, what do you think is the Best Kaiju?
In this survey you will find a list of just about every major Kaiju and some beloved lesser-known favorites! Go through, pick your favorites – as many as you like – and then share with your friends. The more votes we get, the better balanced our episode bracket will be.
