Godzilla Dictionary (ゴジラ大辞典,   Gojira Dai-jiten, lit. "Godzilla Great Dictionary") is a 2004 informational book. It profiles information on every Godzilla film produced from 1954 to 2003 — thus excluding Godzilla Final Wars. An updated edition was released a decade later.


The book was published by Kasakura Publishing on November 1, 2004. Read from right-to-left, it contains 359 pages, the first 8 being in full color and the rest black-and-white. The book contains a vast array of in-universe information about the Godzilla franchise, segregating entries on the Toho films toward the end, separate from the monsters, weapons, vehicles, races, characters, terminology and so on found throughout the bulk of its pages.
