I agree with the choices of Shin and Anime Godzilla but I also feel Legendary would be pretty terrifying as well. He's so big, he causes tsunamis where he emerges. He is more ancient then anything and everything we do is beneath his notice like something out of a Lovecraft novel. Our weapons can't hurt him and we can only try and get out of his way. And then, there's the fact that if Godzilla has arrived in an area, it means something even worse probably drew him there. It would definitely be the Godzilla I would be most scared to encounter in the real world.

Shin Godzilla to me, is the most terrifying Godzilla I have ever seen. Even I can't come up with a terrifying design as awesome as this. And yet, I can't help but be awe-struck by its unique design. The extremely small beady eyes, the jagged teeth, its jagged robot-like movements, its slender, malnourished body with the exception of his EXTRA THICC legs, and very long tail. And with the ability to fire his atomic beam from his mouth, his dorsal plates AND his tail!?! Screw that, I'm getting the hell out of here.

I'd choose Burning Godzilla and GMK Godzilla.

Burning Godzilla is incredibly powerful, and the pain he feels as he comes closer to meltdown makes him more aggressive. This Godzilla was lashing out at the water as well as buildings. But the biggest fear is what happens after the meltdown. Godzilla's body will unleash massive rads of radiation, radiation that will stick around for years. Wherever it happens, the area will be uninhabitable for a long time. Not to mention how that radiation might effect living organisms.

GMK Godzilla is one of the few incarnations that purposely targets people. He would kill and destroy all in his path.

I don't include Shin Godzilla here, but that version does have a danger factor. Godzilla was evolving at a quick pace, and who knows what Godzilla might become given enough time.
Kaiju are just like people- giant, radioactive people.

Burning Godzilla and GMK due to the former being able to destroy the Earth and the latter for its malice.

Showa Godzilla would be the most terrifying because the physics of his tail slide would force scientists to re-evaluate all their models and thereby induce an existential crisis in civilization at the true nightmare that is this unknowable universe.

So far Shin leads with Filius(Earth) not far behind followed by Burning and GMK. I don't really foresee this trend changing much and expect the end results to be the same. I love these polls, may do another soon. Hmmm.

I still love how Godzilla Earth took over the Earth and beat humanity and aliens while he was 50 meters in the modern world. Just shows how it's really Godzilla's power that matters, not necessarily him being the biggest. (Although that would change later of course with him evolving)

Terrifying shmerifying. I'd probably be cheering him on like those demented football fans you see on stadium cameras.

Godzilla GMK for one reason: like many other Godzilla, we brought him on ourselves. Unlike the other Godzilla, this is personal as its the manifestation of all the souls lost on Pearl Harbor crying out for blood. Us humans would be facing a monster (or kaiju in this case) we ourselves created and whatever damages or deaths it causes would be our fault.

Wouldn't it be hilarious if Godzilla showed up and kaiju fans were brought on as subject matter experts to help stop him, lol.

If we could create ANEB, and then use napalm on him, it might do the trick. The kicker, though, is making sure he doesn't cool off.
