10 Old-School Toho Kaiju That Legendary Need To Reincarnate

Legendary's MonsterVerse has already delivered some Kaiju greatest hits. Who do we want to see next?


We all knew that the iconic triple-headed dragon King Ghidora was coming back for Legendary’s Godzilla: King of the Monsters.

But one of the best things about that movie was seeing Godzilla and Ghidora accompanied by Rodan and Mothra, two more of the most beloved Kaiju found throughout the many incarnations of the Toho universe. King of the Monsters also revealed that there are at least seventeen Titans in the MonsterVerse, so we know there’s plenty more to come.

Now, we know that Godzilla will face off against Kong in the next instalment, unsubtly named next year’s Godzilla Vs. Kong. There are also rumours that Mechagodzilla, one of Godzilla’s old rivals, and Nozuki, a new and original Kaiju, will also make appearances.

But what’s our wishlist for other classic old-school Kaiju characters who could feature alongside Kong, or who could return in future Godzilla movies?

It’s true that Legendary’s commitment to realism may appear to rule out a lot of the more outlandish Kaiju, such as space cyborgs or long-dormant insect gods. That said, they’ve adapted Kaiju origin stories pretty freely in the movies they’ve made so far, so there’s no real reason some of the more bizarre beasties couldn’t return in one reimagined form or another.

After all, if Mechagodzilla's coming back, all bets are off!
