So this was an interested find….some photos from the 1970’s  Kaijū-Kaijin Daizenshū movie monster book series that detail the anatomy of the Japanese movie monsters (or kaiju) in the films produced by Daiei Motion Picture Company in the 1960’s. The kaiju films were a response to the popularity of the Godzilla movies, but produced by a different company. Pretty awesome and interesting, they got down to their favorite food for some, lol. Thanks pinktentacle!
Gamera
Gamera’s features include infrared eyes with night vision, arms that can lift 50,000 tons, an organ for producing the flames he shoots from his hands, electrical spikes on his back, poison claws, sac-like organs for storing lava, coal, oil and uranium, balloon-like organs that blast jets of air out through the feet, and a tail of elastic cartilage that can deliver a powerful punch.
Guiron

Guiron’s most prominent feature is his knife-shaped head, which is 100 times harder than diamond and is packed with shuriken-like stars that can be fired from a pair of openings above the eyes. The creature has 360-degree radar vision, 60 times more teeth than a piranha, lungs adapted for long-distance space travel, sac-like organs for storing energy and uranium, balloon-like organs in the legs that blast jets of liquid through the feet, webbed fins for stability in water, and magnetic suction cups on the hands.

Viras

Viras’s features include a spike-shaped head capable of piercing through a meter of steel, a brain with an IQ of 2500, organs for producing a force field and controlling the minds of others, tentacles that are 10,000 times stronger than an elephant’s trunk and which can emit powerful beams for space travel, and organs to break down cell tissue and control metamorphosis (for creating its human disguise).

Barugon

Barugon’s features include dorsal spikes that produce a deadly rainbow ray, an organ to produce frosty liquid (-100 degree Celsius) that can be shot from his 30-meter-long weaponized tongue, a stomach that can digest diamonds (his favorite food), and radar horns atop his head.

Jiger

Jiger’s features include a pair of horns that shoot missiles made of hardened saliva and one that fires a deadly “magnetium” beam, powerful suction cups covering her entire body, an organ for shooting jets of seawater at 300 kilometers per hour, a stomach that can melt iron ore, and an ovipositor tail.
