Greatest Godzilla Movies

The Top Ten Greatest Godzilla Movies

1 Godzilla (1954)

In the American Version or English Version Godzilla King of the Monsters, the Bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki Message was cut out in the American Version or English Version, probably because the Distributors of the American Version or English Version don't want to scare People like it was Originally Released in Japan. In the Original Version or Japanese Version Godzilla does have the Bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki Message. Both the Japanese Version or Original Version Godzilla and the American Version or English Version Godzilla King of the Monsters are both the Original Godzilla Movie there Both Good but the Japanese Version or Original Version Godzilla is Much Better

Everyone better vote for the original because this Godzilla is a legend

1954 Japanese Version

Thank you for starting the Godzilla series.If not for this first Godzilla we would have missed the greatest monster of all time.

2 Godzilla: Final Wars

I like how Gorjira just beats the crap of american godzilla and fight scenes are incredible!

This Godzilla movie is the best it has everything for a Godzilla movie here is the checklist
Revamped my favourite kaijus check
Added stock footages check
Revamped one of the most annoying kaijus to a cute wise minimal check
This Godzilla movie is the best rate it 100/100

Looking at this list nearly made me hurl. The original 1954 version needs to by higher, Godzilla: King of Monsters needs to be lower, and Godzilla 1998 needs to be taken off this list because it is a horrible abomination and I do not consider it at all a Godzilla movie. You voters have shamed me, Japan, and all true Godzilla fans across the globe. Shame on you!

So epic, he killed crapzilla! (the horrible Matthew Broderick one)

3 Godzilla Vs. Destoroyah

This movie is the best movie ever how can it not be number 1 this movie has everything from burning godzilla to destroyah to godzilla's son as a true warrior who fights to godzilla's son becoming an adult godzilla to the saddest moment in movie history. Godzilla's death in this movie was truly the best way possible that the big G could have gone out. No really, godzilla's death in this movie was on the news in every country in the world when it was still only in Japanese theater's. If that's not proof to you this was the saddest death in movie history, then you haven't seen it or your brain doesn't know how to work right.

This is the best Godzilla film ever! Godzilla is burning in his core, about to destroy the world, and Destoroyah proves a tough challenge for him. And at the end, Godzilla dies!

The only way you top the Masterpiece of Gojira

My favorite form of Godzilla fighting my favorite Godzilla monster. HECK YEAH!

4 Godzilla vs. King Ghidorah

The best feature of the Heisei era is that everything is connected ( for example, is the only Godzilla era to have a main human character, miki saegusa) and the movies have a good plot and amazing fights between monsters at the same time, and this movie is without doubt the most complete Godzilla movie. It has a great sci fi plot, with time travels, alternative futures and cyborgs. And the main monsters are the king of the monsters and his worst enemy: king ghidorah. Simply a masterpiece.

I like the plot of the future I like the a lot of the things about it the only thing mecha king ghidorah

The first time I watched it I thought it was just alright But I plan on watching it again - Granton8ter2

It's got a good Plot and awesome fights!

5 Godzilla (2014)

Finally saw it last night and it's absolutely WAY better than 1998 Godzilla. That's what Godzilla is supposed to look like, a real Japanese Godzilla.

Old School Godzilla is Better than the New School Godzilla AKA Godzilla 2014. Old School Godzilla (1954-2004) Forever

This is my Favorite Godzilla Movie because this movie shows Godzilla as on of humanity's Allies and this was the second Godzilla movie the USA made and it crunches 1998 Godzilla out of the fray.

Just got back from the theatre, and while it isn't the best it needs to be in the top ten.

6 Godzilla, Mothra, and King Ghidorah: Giant Monsters All-Out Attack

This is the best one in the millennium era since some of them are a mess, But GMK made is very new and fresh to watch by having Godzilla into a Ghost! having of all Monsters..."King Ghidorah" as the hero! That is the well plan movie to make this rivalry.

Godzilla never looked more ominous than he did in this action pack monster thriller. The camera angles and shots are perfect, especially when he first appears rising out of the water while sky pummeling a fishing boat that had the most unfortunate luck of being nearby. Godzilla was most devastating and terrifying as he took on The Guardian Monsters and the Japanese military in a all out war!

Pretty good film. But Ghidorah is the biggest thing that draws me back. Should’ve been Varan instead. Ghidorah does not fit in that role. And sorry if I say this, but this is my least favorite incarnation of Ghidorah. - asantalo

Hands down the greatest film in the series

7 Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla

First movie I ever watched, well according to my dad... I watched this when I was 3 (10 now) and pretty cool fight scenes.

This was my first Godzilla movie I watched, there were great action between the two Godzilla - MatrixGuy

This is my favorite godzilla movie it was one of the movies I watched as a kid I like this version of mechagodzilla and godzilla I always prefer mechagodzilla as a villain this is my favorite godzilla movie

MechaGodzilla has loads of cool weapons.

8 Godzilla: King of the Monsters (2019)

I love it so much it's better than godzilla 2014,shin godzilla and the dissapointing godzilla anime trilogy.

The king of the monsters is so epic that I want to watch it in the movie theater again

I saw the movie and it was REALLY good! EVERY FANS WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED! I really am watching again and it was really good. - asantalo

This movie had everything that I wanted in a Godzilla film.
Can’t wait for Godzilla Vs Kong.

9 Godzilla 2000

I also liked the design of this Godzilla but some of the CGI is terrible

Not the greatest Godzilla movie, but why is it lower than 1998? I'm not trying to hate or anything, but this movie was literally made to remind fans of who the REAL Godzilla was after 1998 was a major box office fail. Also, just a lil side note... This is my 3rd favorite Godzilla look, 2nd being the Yuji Sakai version of G2000, and 1 being the 2014 Godzilla.

One of my favorite!

It is definitely one of the best Godzillas.

10 Godzilla: Tokyo S.O.S.

I don't see why so many people top this movie over godzilla against mechagodzilla.

Should be last

godzilla against mechagodzilla is better

Has some flaws but I still like it.

The Contenders

11 Godzilla Vs Biollante

This film is highly underrated. The monster scenes are great and biollante is badass.

This is a very smart movie that retains its excellent dark tone from its excellent predecessor and increases the stakes and entertains all ages

Biollante is the greatest monster in Gojira!

This is highly underrated

12 Godzilla King of the Monsters

We're the he'll is the new Godzilla because all of the others are crap

1954 American or English Version

If this counts as Gojira, than yes, it should be number 1. Gojira is dark, depressing, and shows what Hiroshima and Nagasaki were like for the Japanese. Great movie. - TheFrodo

The American one is NOT tougher than the Japanese one. In Final Wars, Godzilla defeats the American one in 10 seconds. This movie has a dark tone to it, making it a bit scary.
But I love it!

13 Ghidorah: The Three-Headed Monster

I think this movie is better then Godzilla vs. King Ghidorah (1991) because the Ghidorah in there does not focus on tradition and Ghidorah in there might be the weakest I have ever seen. While this movie introduces the most powerful monster Toho created in a movie that lives up to its name.

Ever since I was 12 or 13 I have loved this movie both for its abundance in monsters and comedic fight scenes. - DarthZilla

good movie

14 King Kong vs. Godzilla

Godzilla vs King Kong (1962) is Not one of the First Godzilla Movies I've ever Saw but Godzilla (1954) AKA The Original Godzilla Movie, Godzilla vs Mothra (1964), Ghidorah the Three-Headed Monster / Ghidrah the Three-Headed Monster (1964), Invasion of Astro Monster / Monster Zero / Godzilla vs Monster Zero / Invasion of the Astro Monster (1965), Godzilla vs the Sea Monster (1966), Destroy All Monsters (1968), Godzilla vs Gigan (1972), Godzilla vs Megalon (1973), Godzilla vs Mechagodzilla (1974), and Terror of Mechagodzilla (1975) is the Only Godzilla Movies I Grew Up Watching Back when I was a Little Kid

This was the first Godzilla movie I ever saw, and I invited a lot of my friends to see it with me. Even though some of the fight scenes were a little cheesy, I liked the plot. I also enjoyed some of the fight scenes too. But I heard there were two endings. In the USA King Kong won and in Japan Godzilla won. But I heard it was fake though. Godzilla movies I want to see with the new Godzilla is:

Godzilla vs king kong remake

Godzilla vs pacific rim robots

Godzilla vs mechagodzilla remake

Godzilla vs King gidorah remake (the 1991 version)

Son of Godzilla remake

Destroy all monsters remake

It was the most exciting movie and had awesome fights but Godzilla should have won.

I Didn't Even Know this Movie Even Existed. When I Was a Little Kid When I Think of Godzilla I Think of the Old Godzilla Cartoon the One with Godzuki, Godzilla 1954 Both Japanese and English Versions, Godzilla vs Mothra (Old One), Ghidorah the Three Headed Monster / Ghidrah the Three Headed Monster, Godzilla vs Monster Zero / Monster Zero / Invasion of Astro Monster / Invasion of the Astro Monster, Godzilla vs The Sea Monster, Son of Godzilla, Destroy All Monsters, Godzilla vs Hedorah / Godzilla vs The Smog Monster, Godzilla vs Gigan, Godzilla vs Megalon, Godzilla vs Mechagodzilla (Old One), and Terror of Mechagodzilla. I Saw the 2nd Godzilla Movie Series Later when I Was a Little Older when I was still in Elementary School (In Between 5th Grade and 4th Grade) and in Middle School (7th Grade and 6th Grade) after I Saw Godzilla / Zilla 1998.

15 Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla Il

Little Godzilla is just adorable.

This was the first Godzilla movie I watched so I love it

Great movie, go watch

Y dis so lo. It so god mate

16 Terror of Mechagodzilla

My first ever Godzilla movie. And this will always be my childhood. - asantalo

I love this movie so much! It's my favorite. It was my first ever Godzilla movie ever.

17 Mothra vs. Godzilla

The New Godzilla vs Mothra which is Godzilla vs Mothra the Battle of Earth (1992) is Ok but the Original Godzilla vs Mothra (1964) is on of the Best Godzilla Movies and one of the Very First Godzilla Movies I've ever saw. Godzilla vs Mothra the Battle of Earth (1992) is cool but the Original Godzilla vs Mothra (1964) makes sense, Godzilla is the Bad Guy and Mothra is the Good Guy. But Godzilla vs Mothra the Battle of Earth (1992) makes does not make any sense Godzilla is innocent in the Movie well Godzilla wants to Destroy the egg or Eat it but Godzilla was awaken by a Meteor that Crashed on Him in the Bottom of the Sea or Ocean. Then Godzilla fights the Mothra Caterpillar and Battra show up to fight both Godzilla and the Mothra Caterpillar in his Caterpillar form and Godzilla fights Battra Underwater and gets suck down by a Underwater Volcano. Battra comes out of the Underwater Volcano and Godzilla comes out of a Regular Volcano in Mt Fuji which is the Best Part of Godzilla vs Mothra ...more

This movie is the bomb.

Awesome movie

The reason I feel this was such a good movie was because it brings to big Toho monsters together to fight each other. It's also the start of one Godzilla's biggest rivals throughout his franchise.

18 Godzilla & Mothra: The Battle for Earth

Why do a lot of people hate this one so much? I honestly don't see what is so bad about it. Yes, it may not be on the level of the original 1964 Mothra vs Godzilla, but it's still my personal favourite of the Heisei series.

Beautiful because of Mothra and the Cosmos in this film. Godzilla looks angry in a cool way like usual.

Worst in the Heisei series.

19 Godzilla vs. Monster Zero

The only thing I like about this movie is Ghidorah fling his heads around like he just don't care

20 Godzilla Vs. Space Godzilla

Great fun...imaginative FX!


My favorite!

I think that Moguera reminds me of the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers megazord, SpaceGodzilla is awesome looking and Fairy Mothra is beautiful!

21 Destroy All Monsters

Good movie, it's kind of like the older final wars

I'm shocked this is so low, especially with the highly uneven "Final Wars" being so high. - truckturner

The best Godzilla movie ever, shocked it's so low. - truckturner

First Godzilla movie I saw, It is my personal favorite

22 Shin Godzilla

How does 2014 beat this movie? That movie is barely godzilla, it's just based around a human soldier and he just keeps running into the fighting kaiju and godzilla is BARELY in it he has like 10 minutes of screen time in that movie.

Ranking this film at 36th is so criminalistic that it is almost a crying shame that this list even exists. Shin Godzilla is at least in my top five favorites out of the entire series.

More like Shin Godzilla

Shin godzilla is horrible.

23 Godzilla Against Mechagodzilla

Coolest Mechagodzilla ever my uncle owns a black rare figure of it

It’s the best and Kiryu is just awesomeness

24 Godzilla vs. Hedorah

GREAT MOVIE! I love fights were dinosaurs fight monsters! This time Godzilla is fighting Hedorah. A creepy blob monster. Should be at the top! - Gabo147

25 Godzilla vs. Megalon

I’m a Die-Hard Godzilla fan since I was kid (54 now). This is by far my favorite with Jet-Jaguar. Story is great, action is spot on. Godzilla may not have his antics as in Monster Zero or Mechagodzilla, but he does shows just what a badass he is against Megalon

So funny!
Godzilla drop kick for the win - Mewingmew

26 The Return of Godzilla

By far the best

Godzilla's best comback ever!

I hope Gojifan1993 will be happy. - asantalo

27 Godzilla Raids Again

Godzilla actually looks cool in this film and first entry of my 2nd favorite Godzilla character... angurius!

28 Godzilla: Planet of the Monsters

Godzilla the planet of the monsters is by far best and better anime movie than other two did.

Godzilla planet of the monsters is a better film than city on the of battle and planet eater and better.

The Anime trilogy is making me sick - asantalo


29 Godzilla vs. Megaguirus
30 Godzilla vs. Gigan

Deserves love

31 Godzilla 1985

Why is this not top 3. And also its not the correct front-cover.

32 Godzilla: City on the Edge of Battle

One of the worst movies ever! Who put this here? - asantalo

33 Godzilla: The Planet Eater

Terrible film.

34 Godzilla (1998)

Just wanted to laugh at how this is high on the list STUPID PIECE OF CRAP (THIS MOVIE)

Get this piece of crap off the list.
Its just about a giant iguana that attempts to destroy New York but gets killed by like 3 missiles.

To be honest, the movie itself isn't that bad. It's just that they took basically an oversized lizard and called it Godzilla (hence the re-naming Zilla). Obviously, the movie is not without it's flaws. Don't get me wrong, Zilla is a good monster and he looks pretty cool too, but in the movie they portray him as "just some animal" whereas Godzilla is more than an animal, but one of the most ferocious monsters to have ever been created. And another flaw is that Zilla is extremely weak. He spends most of the time running from missiles, and by the end, he gets killed by missiles. Godzilla gets hit by an entire nation of missiles and all it does is piss him off. And of course it has it's flaws, because it's a RE-IMAGINING! They made an attempt at creating their own Godzilla. They weren't shooting for a complete American remake of a previous Godzilla film, or an original American story that involves the Japanese Godzilla (I.E. 2014) like you all probably expected them. Cut them ...more

Not the best, but I still like it. There are way worse Godzilla movies

35 Godzilla vs. the Sea Monster

Definitely the worst I’ve seen in my life - asantalo

36 Son of Godzilla

Godzilla's Revenge was worse

37 Godzilla's Revenge

This is what Gojira (1954) should have been

This movie is number 1 by a longshot. Nothing comes close to the awesome fight Scenes and superb acting in this film.
