Biollante is one of the more unusual one-off Godzilla foes. For one, she’s a plant. For two, she’s a she.

A genetic engineer, grieving over the death of his daughter, splices her DNA with a rosebush in order to save her soul. Because, Japan. Then he takes the extra step of splicing in some of Godzilla’s genetic material. Nothing good can come of this.

Pretty soon, there’s a 200-foot-tall rose squatting in the middle of a nearby lake. Godzilla’s well-documented hatred of flowers leads him there. While the first battle goes in favor of the monster that can actually walk around, Biollante dissolves into a cloud of spores and floats away.

When she returns, Biollante’s in the form of a horrid plant/Godzilla hybrid with leafy spines, toothy vines and a fang-filled mouth which spits radioactive sap. Nearly 400 feet tall and weighing in at 220,000 tons, she’s officially the biggest creature in the Toho Studios canon.
