Growing up, I was fascinated with Godzilla, King Kong, and other monster films.  As time went by, and especially when the disappointing 1998 remake of Godzilla was released, I lost interest.  When I watched Cloverfield ten years later, my love for “kaiju” (Japanese for “strange beast” and often translated in English to “monster” or “large monster”) returned.  Pacific Rim and 2014’s Godzilla served the “large monster” genre well.  We can expect to see more kaiju on the large screen in the coming years, lead by none other than the King of the Monsters, Godzilla…

Created by Jaroslav Kosmina, this recently updated Kaiju size chart presents the relative scale of the most popular kaiju.  The chart is oriented horizontally, but it’s embedded vertically below so it could fit – be sure to click it so you can see it how it’s meant to be seen.

  1. I’m a big fan of folklore, legends, monsters and of course anything related to kaiju. I really liked the old Godzilla VS King Kong films and am totally looking forward to when they meet again in the future. The latest installment in the Godzilla franchise was fantastic. I don’t think a new Pacific Rim is in the works, which is unfortunate because we got to see different kinds of kaiju in one film, as opposed to just a couple in Godzilla. Cool chart!
