'Kaiju' is the Japanese word for both giant monsters and the giant monster genre, which may also feature mecha. Toho Studios kaiju include Godzilla: King of the Monsters, Rodan, Ghidora, Mothra, and Angilas. Daiei Studios kaiju include Gamera, Gaos, and Viras. Non-Japanese kaiju include Gorgo and perhaps King Kong, though some kaiju fans insist that only costumed actors qualify, not stop-motion animation nor computer graphics.
