Godzilla (ゴジラ / Gojira) is a giant monster or kaiju originating from a series of tokusatsu films of the same name from Toho Studios in Japan. He first appeared in the 1954 film, Gojira, produced by Tomoyuki Tanaka, directed by Ishirō Honda, with special effects by Eiji Tsuburaya, and an iconic musical score written by Akira Ifukube.  Since the original film, Godzilla has gone on to become a worldwide pop culture icon, appearing in numerous media including video games, novels, comic books, television shows, and the largest film franchise to date.  Aside from Godzilla himself, Toho and all of Godzilla's original creators, offered up an entire pantheon of monsters, along with other special effects films. An ancient force of nature, awoken by the reckless use of atomic power, Godzilla rises up from the depths, acting as both destroyer and savior for the world.  Because of this franchise's massive popularity, influence, and longevity, the Godzilla section of the site has been broken down into various mediums, listed in the links below.
