Select a Sub-Category


Sightings with at least one recognizable image of (or stand in likeness to) a Toho entity. This includes stock footage and unlicensed character appearances.


Sightings that imitate the style of (or subtly nod to) a Toho entity. This includes spoofing the properties with characters that are similar.


Sightings with only an audible reference to a Toho entity. This includes a verbal mention of a Toho character or film and also includes music.


Sightings where the only reference is a roar from a Toho character. Due to its nature, this may not always be an homage.
