Movie Monster Size-Chart by lord-phillock Movie Monster Size-Chart by lord-phillock
another size-chart featuring monsters from movies! I'd put more, but (except for Toho kaiju) I couldn't think of more monsters. I'll upload a close-up version for the smaller ones.

Update: Made it easier to see since I received some comments from blind people (apparently) who said that everything was confusing and the numbering made no sense. So I put it in order (left-to-right). Update: Cool, a DD. Also, added meters and fixed scaling miscalculation.

Update 2014: Added a lot more monsters. Will continue adding more later, and it's still not done! Lots of little kinks to fix. Also I adjusted the sizes to the Cloverfield Monster, Zilla. If you think some are sized too small or big, let me know! Hope you like this update!

I always love this, it makes for an awesome reference! I don't know if you're taking suggestions to add on to this, but have you thought of adding Smaug from The Hobbit to this chart?

Cool! If you'd like, I do estimates for sizes of monsters and would be glad to help you out with them!

If it helps, I've estimated Smaug's head to be 7 meters from the tip of his snout to the end of his longest horn.

Woo, a lot more since last time I checked!

For suggestions, there's Gorgo's Mother (200+ feet tall).

I love size charts, and this one looks great, but there seems to be numerous inaccuracies with this one. One, the scaling on the side doesn't seem to be quite uniform. You have one line labeled as 24' which makes me think that each line represents about 8'. But that would make most of your comparison people and that one sedan about 8' tall which is completely ridiculous. Also in the description you said it's meters, but the apostrophe makes me think feet.

Assuming it is feet, that would make your original Godzilla about 140-180 feet tall, which is about right. However that also means that the VAST majority of this chart is way off. 1954 godzilla is 50meters (164 feet) tall (there are tons of resources out there confirming this, everything from the godzilla wiki godzilla.wikia.com/wiki/Godzil… to just looking at comparison shots of him in powerlines and next to the Diet Building). However comparing him to the nearest monsters, 1954 Godzilla is way too big. Zilla (1998) should be about the same height, just longer, and definitely not half as tall. Same goes for the Cloverfield monster, who should actually be a big BIGGER than them, closer to King Ghidorah size. This is just me looking at the first couple monsters, not even checking the other 3 or 4 dozen on here, haha. Again, love that you did something like this, wish there were more size charts out there, but while this one looks pretty, it's simply inaccurate.

I'm curious to know your sources/research methods for this and how exactly you intended that y-axis to be. Because it looks spot on for a couple monsters, but wildly off for most of the things on here. And sorry if this was meant to just be a fun little thing, just felt like I should mention it.

Hey, all good points. I used the movie, my memory, and merely my intuition. I tend to not take descriptions of sizes to heart because being fictional creatures, it is incredibly hard to be consistent with the sizes. Therefore I make comparisons with the humans in each shot and make a general estimate. I totally agree, though. There's still a lot of inaccuracy going on among the monsters and I've noticed it, and I want to look into changing that sometime! I think I just made the people a bit too big (among the smaller monsters). Should change that.

The only issue I have is that the cloverfield monster doesn't seem that big in the movie, especially not if it could notice someone filming it and gently grabbing said person, and dropping him from a height not particularly great enough to cause more than a concussion. Then again, its tail breaks the Brookyln Bridge, but then again it doesn't seem much bigger than Grand Central Station, it's iffy.

Who's number 22, the name chart is too tiny to read
