A Kaiju, translated, is a Japanese word meaning "weird beast" or simply "monster". The word daikaiju instigates a giant monster, and "daikaiju eiga" is a "giant monster film". The most famous example of a kaiju is the giant monster Godzilla, who was perhaps the first Japanese daikaiju to hit the screen. Godzilla has since been joined by numerous other monsters with which he has co-starred, and some have had movies all to their own.

Some kaiju, such as in popular Japanese television, have been based on things such as tomatoes and common household objects (such as toasters and umbrellas).
