KAIJU (怪獣, kaijū) n. Japanese word loosely translated as "strange beast". Often used in English to mean "monster".

I love Kaiju! Some of them are downright corny, some of them are outrageous, some of them are pretty doggone cool, and some of them are just plain monster classics! Godzilla (or more properly, Gojira) is one of the classics. Here's a few photos and drawings of the monstrously strange beast from various sources around the web. They are big enough to use for wallpaper. The images appear to have gone viral, so it's difficult to tell the chicken from the egg here. So, thanks bunches, whoever you are, and especially the film studios for creating them to begin with!
