The Giant Monsters wiki last edited by fesak on 09/09/15 02:06AM View full history


Kaiju is the Japanese name for Giant Monsters. Unlike American Giant Monsters who have generic names like the 50-foot woman, kaiju are given specific name like Rodan and Gigan. There are many famous kaiju. The most famous is Godzilla, who first appeared in the 1954 film Gojira. Other famous kaiju include Gamera and Mothra. Kaiju usually appear in Japan but can be other places like small islands that are usually uninhabited. Kaiju are usually portrayed as a force of destruction being neither good nor evil but some like Mothra and Gamera are always portrayed as good monsters who defend Earth from evil alien invaders. Others like King Ghidorah and Gigan are always portrayed as evil aliens who have come to destroy Earth.
