* A classic Franchise/{{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.

* The climax of ''Discworld/MovingPictures'', in which the Things From The Dungeon Dimensions use movie magic to escape into the real world, involves a giant woman climbing the Tower of Art while clutching an ape. The other characters can't shake the feeling there's something wrong with this picture.[[in fact, two pictures, with overtones of a third; a two-for one ShoutOut to ''Film/AttackOfTheFiftyFootWoman, Film/KingKong'' and possibly ''Film/{{Godzilla}}''[[/note]]

* Played with in ''Disney/{{Zootopia}}'' when Judy chases Duke into [[MouseWorld Little Rodentia]], where they (a rabbit and a weasel, respectively) are kaiju sized by comparison.
* In the third act of ''WesternAnimation/{{Minions}}'', Stuart is accidentally enlarged by one of the villain's inventions, and stomps his way through London to save the others.



* ''Film/DudeWheresMyCar'' starts out with two stoner dudes looking for their car, but ends with them running from a giant alien babe.

* The ComicBook/FantasticFour fought a lot of giant monsters in their earliest issues, even if the monsters were only peripheral to the main plot (the baddie is on the ropes, so what's he going to do? Summon a giant monster, of course!). This was of course the period when MarvelComics was transitioning from comics about {{Kaiju}} to comics about super heroes, so it's only natural that their earliest superhero stories have kaiju in them.
