Created by J.R.R Tolkien, the Smaug became lifelike in the adaption of the movie “The Desolation of Smaug”. but unlike other monsters from pop-culture who rarely ever display any specific personality traits, Smaug was a greedy psychopath and arrogant. The monster’s height was 200 feet as depicted in the film but he could stretch up to 426 feet if he stretched his entire wingspan.

#2.  Godzilla- “Godzilla, 1954”

#4.  The Kraken- “Clash of the Titans”

The Kraken from clash of the titans is quite different from the one seen in ‘The Pirates of the Caribbean’ who looks like a giant squid. The original Kraken was humanoid and was created by Hades as the most powerful sea creature who could destroy all Titans and allow Olympians to rule over mankind.
