POLL: Best Kaiju

January 22, 2023

Thanks for your interest in this topic! The poll is now closed, but you can check out the episode of the podcast in which we discuss the results by clicking here.

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.

Did we miss your favorite Kaiju? Add them in the space provided below and we may discuss them in the episode. The 16 top vote-getters will be discussed in a future season of the Great Pop Culture Debate podcast. Find out more at greatpopculturedebate.com.
