* Destroyah. To quote [[WebVideo/TheAngryVideoGameNerd James Rolfe]]-"He looks like the goddamn devil!" It doesn't help that his juvenile forms look like a cross between a [[Franchise/{{Alien}} Xenomorph]], a crab, and a scorpion, or that he's able to use the same horrific ability as the Oxygen Destroyer (see above, also where he got his name).

* Godzilla has often been called a walking nuclear reactor. In Godzilla vs Destoroyah, the reactor has gone critical. If he implodes, he turns Japan into an inhabitable ghost town. If he EXPLODES, he destroys the entire planet. Not to mention that Godzilla himself has just about gone AxCrazy from the pain he's in.
* There's a scene in ''Godzilla VS Hedorah'' where Hedorah is flying overhead emitting a cloud of sulfuric acid. The innocent bystanders below are shown collapsing and then their flesh melting off of their faces.

** ''The Half-Century War'' invokes this with Godzilla's first appearance. There isn't even an attempt at onomatopoeia; just jagged, broken sound waves in a speech bubble. You ''know'' what it sounds like.

* The sea louse from The Return of Godzilla has a longer, overdrawn and almost humorous intro in the original version. The American cut makes the scene shorter and actually terrifying.

* Godzilla: Kingdom of Monsters has a ton of this. The first issue has Godzilla [[spoiler: [[WouldHurtAChild kill two kids just by rising up from the ground]] ]]. And it gets worse. We are then introduced to the [[CreepyTwins evil psychic twins]] who manage to gain control over Rodan and Battra and hope to take control of Godzilla later on in the series, lots of [[SceneryGorn unsettling apocalyptic imagery]] and the undeniably brutal monster fights. But the creepiest and scariest moment comes in issue 5 where there is an exodus of people evacuating Los Angeles due to Godzilla's attack and, while a fight breaks out on the road, Godzilla shows up and outright vaporizes everyone on the road except for a little girl who ends up traumatized. In fact, the aftermath [[DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything looks just like a nuclear bomb hit the area]]. Then there's the animal deaths which precede a monster showing up.
* In Rebirth of Mothra, we are given Desghidorah who looks less like an {{Expy}} of King Ghidorah and more like a three-headed gothic dragon who can split the ground open and unleash flames from it. In its sequel we have Dagarla who can basically create a waterspout and he releases poisonous starfish... '''[[BuffySpeak THINGS]]'''. Then we have its own take on King Ghidorah who has his EldritchAbomination status beefed UpToEleven as a soul-eating monster who can regenerate from a single surviving piece of himself. Also, his first target when he arrives on Earth are [[AdultFear kids]] who he puts into a dome to save for [[WouldHurtAChild a snack]]. Not only that, how he teleports them is disturbing, especially when he '''rips the daughter of the main character's parents right out of her father's arms'''.
* In Rulers of Earth, just before [[spoiler: Zilla]] makes landfall, we briefly see his eyes in a tidal wave with someone surfing in it. Chris Mowry and Matt Frank have officially made [[spoiler: Zilla]] scary. Well, maybe not scary but unnerving. Once on land, he tries to eat the main character.
* Godzilla: Rulers of Earth issue 3. Manda destroying the USS Goldenstein while [[spoiler: Gezora]] finishes off the rest, the appearance of the [[spoiler: Devonians and Cryog]] and a juvenile Destoroyah infiltrating a convention and killing people. Then there's the ending which has [[spoiler: Godzilla arriving on Malibu beach with a giant scar in his chest before he collapses]]. Prior to this, Godzilla was dragged under the water by some unknown Kaiju.

* The latest arc from the Rulers of Earth series has so far started off with [[spoiler: the return of Minette and Mallorie as well as an introduction to a mass-produced line of [=MechaGodzillas=], one of which manages to nearly kill Anguirus]].

** Even his roars are terrifying. With the high-pitched shrieks and wailing, he sounds absolutely demonic as heard [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nShHtg4R0MI here]].

* Gigan. Sure, he's not the scariest-looking Kaiju out there. But, take into consideration that he's the first monster to make Godzilla ''bleed''. Oh, and there's the little fact that he absolutely loves causing mayhem and destruction and prefers to hack his opponents with either his scythe-arms or his buzzsaw-belly rather than use his optic blasts. Not to mention, his Final Wars incarnations are terrifying. His first version is bad enough but his Modified form is what nightmares are made of, not to mention his sadism and evilness are much bigger now...

Not to mention, his Final Wars incarnations are terrifying. His terrifying and what nightmares are made of. With his trademark buzzsaw belly, his cycloptic visor seeming glow a menacing and evil red and scythe-like blades for hands, his first version is bad enough but his Modified form is what nightmares are made of, ups the ante with FOUR CHAINSAWS replacing the blades, a sharper and serrated head spike and a slightly-more-deliberate slasher smile, not to mention his sadism and evilness are much bigger now...than those of his Showa incarnations. With the sadistic joy and glee he takes in causing as much death and mayhem as he can, making his enemies slowly suffer via hacking and shredding them to bits with his buzzsaw, blades, and chainsaws, it is no surprise that Gigan is considered one of Godzilla's most evil, cruel, and sadistic opponents...

** Speaking of [[spoiler: aliens, when you think about it, there have been at least ten movies in the Godzilla franchise with some kind of extraterrestrial life form or race trying to take over the Earth.]] It really makes you wonder how many ][[CrapsackWorld hostile alien life forms are waiting to attack.]]

* A minor one, but the reveal of the [[spoiler: Space Hunter Nebula M's true forms]] are very unsettling. Katsaridaphobia, anyone?
