I like Woo too. The more supernatural kaiju in general was something I always loved.

Speaking of which, I like Jirass as well, but not because of the re-used suit but because he's canonically the Loch Ness Monster in Ultraman IIRC. I always thought that was pretty cool.

The usual, Gomora, Red King, Eleking, Golza, Silvergon, Goldras, yet i'm also particularly fond of the monsters who really deserve a comeback, like Arigera, Daigarugu, Dinozaur, Melba, Femigon... too many monsters who don't get enough love.

And of course, i really love the holy trinity of Godzilla lookalikes, Gomess, Jirass and Earthtron

Kaiju are just like people- giant, radioactive people.

Megalon went into a bar and saw Gigan. Megalon said, " Again? I thought you gave this up."
" What can I say," Gigan asked. " I'm hooked."

What was the name of that yeti-like kaiju that appeared in the same episode as Dorako I and Red King II? I'd like to add his name to my list.

I need four more kaiju names:

*the two kaiju that appeared in the same episode as Red King I and Pigmon I, plus the "strangler vines" from that episode,
*the fish-dinosaur kaiju that liked chocolate and if you shot at it, it'd get violent.

Thanks again!

Now I'll need three more:

*the two kaiju that were on another planet in an episode near the end of the series; one of them was bipedal and had a beetle-like head with big, round compound eyes that emitted a bright flash of light whenever it slowly opened them that caused temporary blindness to its victims,
*a burrowing kaiju that had a drill-like point on its nose.

5: Zaragas
I haven't seen the original Ultraman (or any non-anime entry in the series) but his presence in the Ultraman N/A short has made me very intrigued. Combined with the fact that he was apparently the first to give Ultraman a really hard time, Zaragas is very cool to me.

4: Alien Spell/Talk
All of the unused/unaired kaiju are equally intriguing and great but this one takes the cake when it comes to purely Ultraman. Its appearance is terrifying and the alleged reasons why its episode was banned are very interesting. Overall, this one immediately surpassed Dada as my favorite seijin.

3: Pigmon
I tend to gravitate more towards ugly-cute than cute-cute and honestly, Pigmon is the perfect example! The only thing I don't like about Pigmon is the absolutely horrifying Powered design. Seriously, the design team did a great job on every kaiju except for Pigmon and (at a lesser extent) Zetton. Despite that atrocity, I still love Pigmon and hope that he somehow appears in Shin Ultraman as an easter egg at the least.

2: Majaba
While Ultraman Powered used Tsubaraya-made kaiju, Ultraman Great had a cast of entirely new foes. While Gigasaurus and Derugadon had a good chance at landing on this spot, my favorite has to be Majaba, the poisonous mantis kaiju. Their design is amazing, their story slightly reminds me of the MUTOs (who happen to be my favorite Monsterverse Titans at the moment), and overall, they feel like they could fit in wiht the Japanese kaiju better than the rest.

1: Bemular/Nova
Honestly, I couldn't choose between these two. At one hand, Bemular is an amazing kaiju to start off the franchise and looks like my favorite type of theropod dinosaur. But there's also the fact that Nova was the first Ultraman monster I ever saw in my life and has a very unique design. So, these two share the number 1 spot.
