Group Info

A group devoted to being a key central for finding Kaiju art and artists, as well as a social and networking tool for kaiju fandom, be it stars like Godzilla, Gamera, and King Kong, to rookies like the Cloverfield monster, and even original characters created by artists.

Membership has no requirements, other than the ONE GOLDEN RULE; all artwork submitted must involve giant monsters in some manner.

-The top artists will have their work displayed in the Featured gallery.

-There are possibilities for promotions to those committed enough.

What is Kaiju?

For those unfamiliar with the term; Kaiju is Japanese for 'strange creature', or 'monster', while the additional Daikaiju (Dai = big) means giant monster. Fans in America (perhaps even more so than those in Japan) have used Kaiju as a slang phrase for the kind of giant beasts that pop up in Japanese science fiction and fantasy films, most notably Godzilla and his many friends and foes from that ongoing franchise.

Hence the name of our group, Kaijuden - the premier Deviant Art group dedicated to such things.

However, we know Kaiju isn't a perfect term, nor our we limited to the giant monsters from Japan alone...after all, where would the King of the Monsters be without his American forefathers King Kong and The Beast from 20,000 Fathoms?

As such, we have plenty of sub-folders and galleries within our group for these foreign giants. Those said galleries are all pretty self-explanatory, but if you have any further questions, you may contact our knowledgeable co-founder Enshohma.

I hate to do this, but Obscure Kaiju Month is to be put on hold, so that I can get Brandon Tenold's 50th episode title card completed.

Don't worry though; when I am finished, I will double up on the days I missed, especially if a certain fire-breathing turtle finally makes his 50th anniversary plans known.

BUT let's not totally abandon Obscure Kaiju Month.

Tonight's Talk-Back subject is: share your favorite obscure, or lesser-known giant monsters?

Go crazy people!

Talk about the ones we've shared thus far; or overlooked 'minor monsters' from otherwise famous fantasy films; one-shot Ultraman or Power Ranger characters that deserve a return engagement; how many of you are now fighting me for Itassis' affections...whatever!

Let give the overlooked and overshadowed their loving due! And have fun!

****

And just to add a little flavor, below are some monsters that I wanted to feature this month, but will have to be dropped for the time being. Maybe next year, I can feature full-fledged articles:


Devil Rebirth from "Fist of the North Star"


Pedoleon from "Ultraman Nexus"


Nightmare Gamera from "Gamera 3: The Revenge of Iris"


Dr. Anthony Sterling from "Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea" (TV Series)


Balsac from "Godzilla vs Mecgagodzilla II" (Unmade Version)


Space Giant from "Attack of the 50ft Woman" (1958)


The Volcano Men from "Challengers of the Unknown"


"Young-Goo and Dinosaur Zu-Zu" (1993)


Yak Wat Jang from "Tah Tian" (1973)


Hebirus, of the Pachimon Kaiju cards


Gaikotsubaltan, of the Pachimon Kaiju cards



Bus Jigen from "Jetman"


XX Mileeno from "Carranger"


I Have No idea...But It Sure Looks Awesome!
