Video Game: Colossal Kaiju Combat

aka: Kaiju Combat
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 currently constructed by independent video game developer Sunstone Games and Simon Strange, centered on kaiju.

The first full game in the series, The Fall of Nemesis, will feature the eponymous monster from the Nemesis Saga, from renowned author Jeremy Robinson, as the main antagonist and a playable character, along with many original (and most of which are fan-created) characters.

Colossal Kaiju Combat: Kaijuland Battles was released on Steam Early Access on August 11, 2014. It is in an alpha stage, 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 developers intend to include as many famous giant monsters as possible in future updates, with many fan suggestions ranging from the iconic to the obscure.

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.
  • 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:

  • Healing Hands: One of Hound of Nita's powers, somewhat subverted as it is with a beam rather than her hands.
  • Voodoo Zombie: Grimmgarl was turned into a kaiju when a pair of rival bokor reanimated her with incompatible Loa.
