OK, take these and irradiate them so they get to be 5x the size of submarines:

Then set them loose on a major city -- a very humid one.

Would they not make the coolest foe ever for Goji? And a tasty snack for Rodan and Gyaos?

Conan the Barbarian fought a giant slug somewhere in Hyboria, I don't remember the name of the short story.

Not to be contrary, but I think the absolute best tiny beast to make into a monster is the alien-looking, impossible-to-kill waterbear.

I really like snails and slugs though; my favorite being the pink one! I'm not gay.

I can only agree that the more new kaiju we have, the more things in general will take a turn for the better.

The hot-pink slug being Australian, I think we can safely bet our retirement savings that the animal can shoot some sort of lethal foam into your eyes, killing you before you can hit the ground. Whereupon the baby slugs start to eat their way in to feed on your giblets. I'm just guessing, of course.

How about embiggened nudibranchs? They fight a giant mantis shrimp and the frills tangle up the shrimp's striking arms and soften the impacts.

That first one immediately made me think of Ultra Q monster Namegon.

Those are cool, but I'm not sure I'm ready for neon-colored kaiju.

They look like a monster, all they need is a mutant super power and we're good to go.

The above is a picture of a velvet worm squirting glue, it doesn't even need a mutant super power!

Half a billion years or so ago, there used to be armored marine velvet worms, too. Picture that glue-squirting guy rising out of the sea, with the first thing to break the surface being the Godzilla-like double row of spines down its back, each spine longer than one of its pseudopods.

Deep Rising gave us what were essentially daikaiju penis worms.

EDIT: On a Biollante tip, I would like for there to be a daikaiju lichen colony at some point, especially if it's one of those red-tipped "British soldiers" types.

That sounds more in line with man-sized Matango monsters--like a myconized War with the Newts riff "Rise of the Fungus Army".

The Japanese would have no trouble at all creating a kaiju movie featuring Godzilla-sized mushrooms lumbering on legs down Mt. Fuji.

I'd pay to see that, however, I found that Hedorah looks kind of fungal.

You could always make the Neo-Matango both a man-sized AND a daikaiju-sized aggregate. The aggregate form could fire spore showers that could both transform people/animals into more Matango, and that would be acidic or toxic to monsters like Godzilla.

Speaking of aggregate creations, something that could effectively be done in this day and age on film would be a giant made up of regular-sized people all strapped together in an ungodly mess, like "In the Hills, the Cities" Clive Barker short story.

That would be cool to see, though probably not competition for a proper kaiju, more like good eating.
