Adventureblog and ShadowWing Tronix from BW Media Spotlight - encouraged one another to each post our top 10 giant, city-destroying monsters, or "kaiju". I have no illusions about my own list (I consider all other participants better versed on the subject - SW_Tronix gives Godzilla comics sizable blogspace and Michael actually WRITES a kaiju comic, Kill All Monsters), and I hope I don't disappoint any fans of the genre too badly. I've even gone off the Toho reservation quite a bit with some of these. Thanks for your indulgence. UPDATE! We were joined by the Laughing Ferret Lab and That F--ing Monkey as the crossover continues to expand into other blogs!
Rampage arcade game while doing this, George and Lizzie are obviously based on a couple of high-profile monsters already on the list, and whoever thought to make the third one, Ralph, a giant werewolf, was evidently off his nut. Still, good times.
9. Starro the Conqueror
8. Fin Fang Foom
5. King Kong
3. King Ghidorah
Now wait, no Mechagodzilla? While he DID feature in the first kaiju movie I ever saw and captured my imagination, there's some question about whether a mechanical construct can count as kaiju, even one using Godzilla as a template. Therefore, and without warning my crossover partners (what's a crossover without a big continuity mess anyway?), I've decided to post a list of My 10 Favorite Giant Robots next week! Need someone to fight those kaiju bad boys, right? Whether anyone cares to follow me on this project is up to them. :-)
