Colossal Kaiju Combat: Bringing giant monster fans together for the ultimate giant monster experience!
Colossal Kaiju Combat, formerly known as Kaiju Combat, is a series of video games and a Collectible Card Game currently constructed by independent video game developer Sunstone Games,note  centered on kaiju.

The main selling point of the series is that most of the monsters are fan-created characters chosen from the site's forum via a multi-tiered voting process. Twice annually, an "SPN" vote is held to select Kaiju for the supplementary Collectible Card Game. Those who win the SPN vote become eligible for the Progenitor vote, the winners of which can chose one of their kaiju to become a potentially playable character in future instalments of the game. Kaiju who win the SPN vote are also eligible for the EVO vote, where a limited number of the SPN winners are chosen to receive an "Evolved" form with an altered appearance and (usually) improved stats. In addition to fan-submitted content, the developers have expressed the intent to include as many famous giant monsters as possible in future updates, with many fan suggestions ranging from the iconic to the obscure.

Currently, two games exist in the Colossal Kaiju Combat series:

  • Kaijuland Battles, which was released on Steam Early Access on August 11, 2014. It is in an alpha stage, used for debugging, and currently consists of four characters from the Kaijuland Facebook game. It currently costs a few dollars to play, but the final release will be free-to-play.

  • The Fall of Nemesis, which will feature the eponymous monster from renowned author Jeremy Robinson's Nemesis Saga as the main antagonist and a playable character. The game's premise is that the Kaijujin, mystical entities that embody the fundamental traits of Kaiju, are gathering giant monsters from across the multiverse and pitting them together to determine which is the strongest. The previous champion has been deposed by Nemesis, who is now the reigning champion of the Kaijujin's tournament. However, countless other Kaiju are coming forth to contend for the crown.

CKC's development began in 2012, but has been prolonged through a series of setbacks. In early 2016, the development of both The Fall of Nemesis and the card game were placed on hiatus due to an ill-timed series of unfortunate events. The official forum can be found here.

All Examples relating to the kaiju themselves should go on the characters page, which is in need of some Wiki Magic!


This franchise provides examples of:

  • Aerith and Bob: Kaiju names range from Chelonra, Bakuyoku, and Ouroboros to Duncan, Solomon, and Prospector Pete.
  • Behemoth Battle: It's right there in the title.
  • Canon Immigrant:
    • The Kaijuland Battles release exclusively features characters from the Kaijuland Facebook game.
    • Fall of Nemesis stars the main kaiju character of Jeremy Robinson's Nemesis Saga, and Nemesis Prime is one of the Progenitor monsters.
    • Red - or at least its "shadow" - from the NES Godzilla Creepypasta is one of the Progenitor monsters, as is its rival Solomon.
  • Collectible Card Game: New kaiju are sponsored to join the card game first, then their cards are voted in for Progenitor status.

The Collectible Card Game provides examples of:


The Fall of Nemesis provides examples of:

  • Action Girl: DragonLotus is this even in her Mara human identity.
  • Aerith and Bob: Nemesis, Ikameijin, Tornaq, Moratitan, Macrosaurus, DragonLotus, Heart Eater, Lycanoid, Katyusha, Tursacra, and... Duncan.
  • Alien Animals: Ikameijin is an extraterrestrial conquerer who resembles an anthropomorphic squid.
  • Aliens Are Bastards: Ikameijin and Heart Eater are the only aliens in the first game; both have evil intentions. It should be noted that a third of the kaiju voting roster featured aliens, although it seems that the voters preferred terrestrial monsters at the time. Supposedly that dampered the idea of heavy use of alien environments.
  • Bad with the Bone: Lycanoid can extract and wield bone knives when his nanomachine side is dominant.
  • Big Guy, Little Guy: Macrosaurus and Duncan, as both of them had a history before Kaiju Combat.
  • The Champion: The game's premise is that the Kaijujin have selected kaiju from across the universe to fight in a gladiator-style tournament to see who becomes their chosen one, with Nemesis being their current champion.
  • Dark Action Girl: Nemesis was once a murdered human girl, and seeks to punish those she deems guilty without caring about the collateral damage.
  • Decided By One Vote: Supposedly how Moratitan made the roster in the first game.
  • Extreme Omnivore: Macrosaurus's personality in a nutshell, to the point of eating space-time.
  • Fire, Ice, Lightning: DragonLotus, Tornaq, and Tursacra, all of whom fight for the balance of nature.
  • Killer Rabbit: Katyusha was just a simple mouse that had a sentient bio-mechanical AI grafted onto her. Most of the time her mouse instincts will cause her to evade, but when the AI takes over, it will attack with its powerful cannon.
  • Lethal Joke Character: Duncan's schtick is junkshots and his Secondary Attacks is listed as "Humor", but he's just as viable a character as the rest of them.
  • Meaningful Name: Ikameijin's name translates to Squid Master, fitting as he was an overlord before the events of the first game.
  • Mechanical Lifeforms: Heart Eater appears to be biomechanical in nature.
  • Our Werewolves Are Different: Lycanoid is a werewolf mutated by nanomachines and can wield bone knives.
  • Pay Evil unto Evil: Nemesis and Nemesis Prime are instinctively driven to mete out ruthless justice on those who have committed sins.
  • Sea Monster: Moratitan is a mutated amalgamation of sea life, including an eel, sea urchins, coral, and an anemone.
  • The Symbiote: Heart Eater is bonded to the Hero's Heart, which allows her to draw power from her enemies' blood.
  • Vampiric Draining: Will happen to Katyusha while her energy meter is fully charged because of her S.C.U.D. Cannon.

Yellow mecha with thunder motifs are manly, can you feel the storm?

The official concept characters provide examples of:

  • A Load of Bull: Thanatorg is one.
  • Anthropomorphic Personification: Orikalkos, a bird-like kaiju who only appears in times of chaos, is the personification of order.
  • Badass Beard: Mecha-Baz has a mechanical one.
  • Badass Mustache: Chelonra as part of his British steampunk theme.
  • Big Creepy-Crawlies: Some like Ghol-Dom (a woodlouse), Bogma (a snail), Prospector Pete (a hermit crab that uses the gold rush-themed diner it's named after as a shell), and the Dozer in BullDozer (a caterpillar riding atop a chameleon named Bull).
  • Blob Monster: Maladra who was formed from a space station experiment gone horribly wrong.
  • Blood Knight: Exterminus's personality in a nutshell since he was constructed for war.
  • Bondage Is Bad: Scaos, somewhat subverted because without restraints he will cause chaotic violence to everything around him.
  • Came from the Sky: Maladra, Taligon, and Hound of Nita have this in their back stories with the last of them being of the Magic Meteor variety.
  • Clucking Funny: Kikiron who, by incredible coincidence, looks like a giant chicken. Thus on Earth, despite her prowess in battle, is not taken seriously by anyone.
  • Eldritch Abomination: Shadow of Red and C'thura are otherworldly monsters with powers that defy reality moreso than most other kaiju.
  • Everything's Better with Samurai: Gaonaga's design is deliberately evocative of samurai.
  • Ghostapo: Vogeladra. A kaiju created by the Nazis using occult powers and can be controlled with similar magic.
  • God Needs A Prayer Badly: The Bangladeshi god of prosperity Byatha was forgotten by worshippers when his temple was buried underground. In venegeance, he subjected Bangladesh to government corruption, overpopulation, poverty, and western imperialism (which are all actual problems in real Bangladesh).
  • Gladiator Games: Kikiron was a champion fighter in extra-terrestrial kaiju gladiatorial games. Sarcosteon was made for such too, but he escaped to Earth.
  • Healing Hands: One of Hound of Nita's powers, somewhat subverted as it is with a beam rather than her hands.
  • Humongous Mecha: Jet Maiden. Parodied though as she's piloted by slacking teenagers, meaning that she's not always at top notch.
  • Jungle Drums: Bunagi's main gimmick.
  • Lightning Can Do Anything: In this case power Mecha-Baz not unlike a Frankenstein's Monster
  • The Magic Versus Technology War: Gandiva, although subverted as both magic and technology come together.
  • Making a Splash: Torrentula's main attacks consist of striking opponents with her legs, which are made of water.
  • Mix-and-Match Critters:
  • The Muse: Urogora used to be one, but in vengeance at humanity forgetting the lessons of the Muses, she transformed herself into a monster.
  • Noble Demon: Solomon is a demon, but he only seeks to fight his opponent Red.
  • Our Dragons Are Different:
    • Tian-Lung (meaning "Sky Dragon" in Mandarin Chinese) was created by a scientist who wished to make a real oriental dragon. Unfortunately, his creation was anything but benevolent.
    • Gaidragon is the final boss of a video-game manifested in the real world by the Kaijujin.
    • Khyranax is a geriatric alien dragon from another galaxy.
    • Kaiotaita is a winged snake-like deity that was corrupted into a malevolent monstrosity.
  • The Phoenix: Taligon can spawn phoenix wings when in ranged form.
  • Paranormal Investigation: Included in the back stories of Bunagi and Hound of Nita.

  • Rock Monster: Cryx, though he's more of a crystal monster.
  • Self-Fulfilling Prophecy: Torrentula was one of the Phorcydes, but her more sinister siblings tormented her for her pacifistic nature. When they banished her to the bottom of the sea, she built herself a new form and slew all of them. Afterwards, she realized she had become just as horrific as her siblings.
  • Things That Go "Bump" in the Night: The origin story of Nightstone Manor is that the non-kaiju sized monsters that humans used to fear (goblins, demons, ghosts, etc) combined all their energy into a massive Victorian mansion when they realized that in an age of kaiju they needed to find a new way to remain relevant.
  • The Time of Myths: The backstory of Urogora, Torrentula, and Thanatorg who all came from the world of Greek Mythology. We also have Tri'Moloch (created by medieval sorcerers), and Saltora (whose kin are now the Nazca Lines).
  • Ultimate Life Form: Enslaver was created by aliens to be such, but he came to see all other living beings as in need of being destroyed.
  • Voodoo Zombie: Grimmgarl was turned into a kaiju when a pair of rival bokor reanimated her with incompatible Loa.
