...They left pieces of themselves...keys to their genetic structures which a crazed scientific genius found a way to combine, and thus was born...Kongzilla.

— Narrator in the one-page comic

Kongzilla (コングジラ,   Kongujira) is a kaiju sold as a 12-inch-tall statue by Bowen Designs in 1998. He was designed by Randy Bowen and accompanied by an Arthur Adams comic explaining his origins.


In 1962, a giant ape and a giant reptile battled in Tokyo. After their fight, a "crazed scientific genius" used skin samples from both monsters to create Kongzilla.



Wikizilla: YouTube What is KONGZILLA?


  • Bowen Designs did not license Godzilla from Toho when it produced the statue, and Adams' comic does not refer to Godzilla by name. Consequently, when title designer Kyle Cooper showed off his Kongzilla statue for a Godzilla Final Wars DVD featurette, it was pixelated and covered in a flashing "no" symbol.
  • A creature named Kongzilla appeared in DC Comics' humor/horror anthology comic book series Plop! #1 (Sept./Oct. 1973). Unlike the statue, this version has the upper body of King Kong and Godzilla's legs and tail. In this story, Kongzilla is shown to be female.
  • REBOR revealed a sculpt for a Godzilla/Kong hybrid figure in 2020,[1] but it was never released.
