Mecha-King Ghidorah has got to be up there for me. Phenomenal lighting. Also Destoroyah's final form. Will second Godzilla in TOMG. Heck, I'll even throw GMK Ghiddy in there, post-Mothra revival.

Agree on that dude

When Godzilla proper shows up in Vs. King Ghidorah I get goosebumps every time.
I also have to mention Destroy All Monsters. There's something great about the chill journey through all the kaiju on the island just going about their business.

Godzilla coming ashore in GvKG is one of the greatest scenes in the genre. I absolutely love the theme that plays then (it also works fantastically in G2K), and that shot of Godzilla passing by the farm. As much crap as I give Heisei, when it got things right, it got things right.

And yes, those monster roster scenes in the Showa series are so cool. That's something every series since has been lacking, is a good lineup of monsters active all at once. KOTM '19 set that up for the Monsterverse; hopefully future entries capitalize on it and give us a scene where Monarch is rattling off a list of active Titans or something.

Literally every entrence in ToMG. Holy poop there are some phenomenal entrances. There's Titano lurking in the dark water and pouncing on the sub, then coming out of the water in spectacular fashion, MG2 rising from the ground, and doing his awesome salute, and of course Godzilla coming from the shadows to save the day.

All 3 of those entrances also have fantastic themes playing to them.
