Hmmmmm...

Godzilla: Tie between 1991 Godzilla and 2001 Godzilla.
(Starting to lead a tad bit more towards 2001 Godzilla) (EDIT: I forgot about the GMK Godzilla for a minute there, ha.)
Mothra: 2001 Mothra
Rodan: 1956 Rodan
King Ghidorah: 1991 King Ghidorah
Mechagodzilla: 1974 Mechagodzilla
Anguirus: 1972 Anguirus
Gigan: 1972 Gigan

Those are most likely my favorite versions of the Kaiju listed above.

Godzilla: KiryuGoji
Mothra: Tokyo SOS/Final Wars Mothra (with Heisei Mothra powers)
Rodan: Original one (1956)
Mechagodzilla: Kiryu (although I recognize than the Showa Mechagodzilla is probs more iconic, Kiryu for me is the peak of the Mechagodzillas)
King Ghidorah: Grand King Ghidorah (with the Unleashed roars, the ones that fuse the Heisei and Showa roars)
Anguirus: Pipeworks Anguirus
Gigan: 2004 Gigan

I know, right? There's like a whole page dedicated to it! I sure am glad I stumbled into the Godzilla vs Kong thread out of idle curiosity, I was beginning to think I'd never find a place to talk about A Quiet Place. Maybe they should just cancel GvK altogether so we can all go see A Quiet Place 2 and discuss that here come March 2020?

Any kaiju that only showed up in the showa era and then Final Wars: The showa era version. :)

Not really sure on Mothra or KG, honestly.

Tbh, Ohrai Noriyoshi Mechagodzilla would be my ultimate Mechagodzilla design

Going by OP's actually idea here, as in what comes to mind when people say these characters' names what's the image that comes to mind, NOT my *preferred* versions, or the versions I believe are the best...

Godzilla: 1991 (I think 1954 is the definitive)
Mothra: 1992 (Yeah, this is about right)
Rodan: 1993 (I think 1956 is the definitive)
King Ghidorah: 1991 (I WANT Grand King Ghidorah to be the definitive, but I genuinely think this is the best look for Ghidorah...)
Mechagodzilla: 1974 (Yep.)
Anguirus: 1968 (Yep.)
Gigan: 1972 (Yep.)

Godzilla: varies between Legendary, Shin, 2001 and 2000.
Mothra: 2003/2004
Rodan and Anguirus: Showa, no specific suit.
Mechagodzilla: I always think of each individual one instead of one collective.
Gigan: 2004.
Kumonga, Minilla, King Casear: Showa.
Ebirah, Kamacuras, Manda: Final Wars.
Baragon and King Ghidorah: Again, I always think of a specific incarnation.
Kong: 2017

Original intent?

Godzilla - 89/91
Ghidorah - Showa
Mechagodzilla - 75
Anguirus - 68
Rodan - 56
Gigan - Showa
Mothra - Heisei for adult, Showa for larva

As for my favorite incarnations?
Godzilla - hard to choose between 84 and 91 I love both designs

Ghidorah - same
Mechagodzilla - same
Anguirus - same
Rodan - same
Gigan - both, love both designs equally
Mothra - Leo or Rainbow if they count

King Ghidorah: 1965.
Baragon: 1965.
Ebirah: 1966.
Minya: 1967.
Kamacuras: 1967.
Kumonga: 1967.
Hedorah: 1971.
Gigan: 1972.
Mechagodzilla: 1974.
King Caesar: 1974.
Godzilla (Heisei): Biogoji.

This one is surprised no one (presumably a younger or newbie fan) has said Legendary Godzilla. Even though I like the design and am waiting with baited breath for King Of The Monsters, if that's what you think of when you think Godzilla...::waves pointer finger back and forth while saying eh eh and shaking head:: but no one has yet. Surprise. Ok so here's mine

Godzilla: 84'
Mothra: Showa (they all really looked the same to me)
Rodan: 56'
King Ghidorah: 64'
Anguirus: 55'
Gigan: 72'
MechaGodzilla: 74'
Hedorah: 72'
Baragon: The first one from Frankenstein CTW(can't remember the year)
Varan: again can't think of the year but the original from Varan the Unbelievable
Young Godzilla: Junior
Minor Role Creature: Shockirus
Human Protagonist: Serizawa 54'
Human Antagonist:(humanoid in this case) Black Hole Aliens
Anti-Godzilla Weapon: Super-X2
Aliens in General: Xilians (orginial)
Dedicated To Darkness..
