Homemade Kaiju
« on: January 25, 2009, 10:10:02 am »
I myself am a huge Godzilla fan. However, I've always felt that Toho's famous line of Kaiju, such as Godzilla, King Ghidora, and Gamera, all had their each unrealistic flaws. So I've made my own Kaiju that are at least somewhat plausible.













(Yes, it is, in fact, possible for a creature to breathe fire.)
So what do you guys think?

Those are nice.

But what bugs me is that you can breathe fire through some sort of chemical reaction, but fireballs?

For things so huge, they seem pretty light.

My estimation for the weight of Octuarga gave me some 55000 metric tonnes. Which is more than 11000 times the weight you have, since metric tonnes are bigger than imperial.

Of course I had to convert his height to metric and estimate his volume, so it's probably quite far off what he'd actually weigh. But, still, he probably weighs more than an unloaded articulated truck.
Not a winner anymore.

Huh. I just took the weight of a Northwestern Pacific giant octopus and multiplied it by how much larger Octuarga is. But I guess I'll go with what you say, not what i wrote down.
Oh, and madis, those are technically giant flaming balls of spew. He does that when his stomach is full. Otherwise, he just breathes fire.

Probably better to estimate its volume, then multiply it by the density of water.


If Octuarga is resonably spherical, and his height is about 62 metres, then his radius is 31 metres. Volume of a sphere is 4/3*pi*r(cubed)

Plugging the numbers into that gives me approximately 125000 cubic metres (which is different from what I had last time, since I didn't notice how spherical he was and did it differently)

Since the density of water is pretty close to the desnity of flesh, we can say that since 1 cubic metre of water = 1 metric tonne, he weighs about 125000 metric tonnes.

Soooo yeah. You underestimated a little.

Every time something doubles in size its volume (and therefore probably also weight) more than doubles.

Its pretty easy to see when you take into account that the volume of a 1x1x1m cube is 1 cubic meter but doubling the size of the cube to make it 2x2x2m gives you a volume of 8 cubic meters.
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

I like Gigurma the best because he's a giant leech thing!  :D

Actually, she has a tough, rocky outer shell, instead of slimy, wrinkled skin. So she's more like an earthworm with armor.
Yes, that thing is a female.
