Top 10 Giant Movie Monsters

Monster movies are my favorite. So here's a list of the giant monsters.

The Top Ten

1 Godzilla Godzilla Godzilla is a giant monster originating from a series of tokusatsu films of the same name from Japan.

Godzilla is the best. Missiles don't even scratch him. He survived an atomic bomb. He is the king of the monsters.

Hey King Kong! You are about to get you butt kicked! The new Godzilla has a shield and incredible regenerative capabilities. The Shin Gojira can shoot lasers out of its BUTT for gods sake. Burning Godzilla can destroy a whole planet just by committing suicide! Nothing can kill this guy. GOJIRAAA!

he is cool

GO GODZILLA! - Godzillaboy

2 King Kong King Kong King Kong is a giant movie monster, resembling a colossal ape, that has appeared in various media since 1933. The character first appeared in the 1933 film King Kong, which received universal acclaim upon its initial release and re-releases.

Much better than Godzilla in my opinion. - iliekpiez

I definitely like mammals better than reptiles, so of course I choose this to be #1. I just think the movie is a better classic.
The Remakes
The CGI Godzilla wasn't so successful, but the CGI King Kong was an awesome success.
Definitely #1

Yes you also know this is number 2. King kong is an original monster just like godzilla. We should king kong the prince of the monsters.

Not a monster, animals do not belong on the list, new king kong movie sucked

3 Gamera Gamera Gamera is a giant monster or daikaiju originating from a series of Japanese tokusatsu films of the same name.

Looks like a giant ninja turtle shooting giant fireballs from his mouth, he is like the giant reptilian counterpart of Superman, reptilian savior. The most bitter rival of godzilla

A fire breathing turtle who can fly and eat fire AND Kill Bad guys! Is That awesome?

I never watch the movies but I just look at the photos and its cool.

Gamera is my favorite, I've always liked him better than godzilla

4 King Ghidorah King Ghidorah King Ghidorah is Godzilla's Greatest Enemy of all times since 1964's Ghidorah: The Three Headed Monster.

Godzilla’s arch rival and the most powerful monster in the world. - asantalo

A three headed dragon from outer space. AWESOME!

He is really bad at fighting. When he fought godzilla he revived 3 times and STILL lost! Laugh out loud. - toptenjoe

5 Mothra Mothra

Long live the Queen of the Monsters! - asantalo

If godzilla is king, mothra should be queen - wren6

Should be at least number 5

I kinnda like insects being giants. And mothra is my favorite. Another monster that everyone likes.

6 Clover

Clover is much much bigger than godzilla. don't believe? watch cloverfield:paradox

The way the movie reveals Clover is so suspenseful and horrifying (in a good way). Hopefully we get a chance to see him again!

Terrific monster. And the scariest thing is Clover is only a baby. Just imagine how big the mom and dad are!

Cloverfield is my favorite movie of all time. Clover all the way! - Jonerman

7 The Stay Puft Marshmallow Man

DANG IT RAY - Jackamalio


8 Rodan Rodan

Such an underrated monster! Just 2 years after the infamous Gojira was released... Oh, and by the way, FIRE RODAN... Enough said

Rodan saved Godzilla's life and upgraded his Atomic breath to the spiral ray.

Wow a preradactyl yet AWESOME!

9 Mega Shark

The MEG comes out in 2018

It's better than the smaller ones, because a mega shark swallows you whole and you can come out the other end safely. Still, you can get digested and being swallowed and crapped out alive can be pretty unpleasant.

Yes I know I'm going to regret this but come on guys you just hate this movie just because of cgi. Well at least you will see a megalodon fight other creatures.

Ahh don't eat me!
Nooo! Oh wait I'm still alive in its stomach!
(A day later) (Fart) Yes I'm out of here!

10 Destoroyah Destoroyah

34 The Giant Claw
