Added DiffLines:

* ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls'': 95% of the [[MonsterOfTheWeek monsters of the week]] that come to destroy Townsville are usually some variation of this.
** [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]] in "Super Zeroes" where the girls learn that the reason so many monsters invade Townsville is because they consider being defeated by them to be some form of honour and whoever makes it back to the island is hailed as a hero by the other monsters.

Added DiffLines:

* Anime/ConcreteRevolutioChoujinGensou's gimmick is to throw every known superhero and villain into Showa-era Japan. Obviously, kaiju have gotta be part of it (although they're known as "beasts" in the English subs)- Jirou even says [[Film/PacificRim "kaiju groupie"]] at one point! Specifically, three of the kaiju involved are Ga Gon, its baby Mini Gon and a side character jellyfish kaiju.

* The first {{Superman}}[=/=]SpiderMan team-up opens with ComicBook/LexLuthor attacking Metropolis with a [[HumongousMecha giant robot.]] Because that's just the kind of thing Lex does. Supey defeats it, the whole thing only lasting a handful of pages. It's really just to set-up Lex going back to prison where he will meet Doc Ock and get the real plot rolling.
* A classic {{Superman}} story with Lori Lemaris has Superman traveling to Atlantis and getting attacked en route by a sea serpent. It's no big problem for Supes, and he defeats it and continues on his way. Years later, JohnByrne would comment that these days, it would likely take multiple issues to explain where the sea serpent came from, whereas here it only took a few panels.

* In one WesternAnimation/DaffyDuck cartoon, he's a big fan of Schmodzilla, a near-identical version of Godzilla.
* In WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic, season 2, episode "Secret of my Excess", when Spike is expossed to greed, he grows prematurely into a giant adult dragon which promptly rampages through Ponyville, leaving a trail of destruction in his wake. He also parodies ''Film/KingKong1933'' by kidnapping Rarity and climbing to the tallest building with her clutched in his hand.

* Both of ''GIJoe's'' original [[FiveEpisodePilot Five Episode Pilots]] have kaiju in them. While hunting for radioactive heavy water to power the MASS device, the Joes and Cobra are attacked by giant tube worms. And while retrieving part of the Weather Dominator from the tropical Palace of Doom, the Joes are attacked by a giant animate statue -- and saved when it gets distracted by a convenient giant Cobra robot, and the two destroy each other. Both incidents feel like weird genre-shifts in the middle of these stories; but still fun of course because, y'know, giant monsters, hey.
