Kaiju & Daikaiju Films (怪獣 & 大怪獣)

Kaiju is a Japanese word that literally translated means “strange creature”. But the more common English translation would be “Monster”. Kaiju films usually have monsters of any form attacking a major city or engaging another (or multiple) monsters in battle.

The most famous kaiju is Godzilla but Gamera, Mothra, King Ghidorah, Mechagodzilla and Rodan are all kaiju.

The other forms of kaiju:
· Kaijū eiga (Monster movie), a film featuring giant monsters or a single monster.
· Kaijin (Roughly humanoid monsters).
· Daikaiju (Giant kaiju), the HUGE mosters.
