5 Days left! Although I may extend the deadline a bit if we're still a bit light on lists at that point.

And I want to say "all kaiju are people in suits" but I'm genuinely unsure about like, Mothra, or some appearances of Ghidorah. I think, tentatively, all my picks are unambiguous but... yeah I'm not actually 100% sure.
For reference, kaiju that I know are fully puppeteered and do not have entire people inside them:

Mothra: The larva in the original film had several people inside of it. But other than that, both larva and adults were played by different forms of puppets in all appearances in live-action, Toho-made movies. GMK, Tokyo SOS, and Final Wars use a fully CGI model for some shots of the adult, but also use a puppet.

Kamacuras: puppet all the way in its old-school appearances, with some CGI in Final Wars

Kumonga: ditto

Battra: larva is a suit; adult is a puppet

Rodan: While he's a puppet in some shots, both old-school and Final Wars Rodan predominantly use person-in-suit, even for a lot of airborne scenes. The version that appears in Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla II (1993) is entirely puppet-operated, though.

Megaguirus: Puppet with some CGI shots.

We've got 9 lists, but I'd like to get a few more so I'm extending the deadline until Friday. @Lokii @Mogri @Bulgakov I noticed y'all voted for this list. If any of you want to submit one you've still got a few days.

Me: Hey, here's my draft list, take a look
Spouse: Hmm, that's not bad but what about [at least 5 characters I want to have on my list]
Me: Dammit!

Also apparently my spouse still knows all the words to United States of Whatever from the Sifl and Olly show, which is a song I definitely had completely forgotten and has now been stuck in my head all day for what I can only assume is catching up on lost time. I didn't like that show at all but have to admit the song is catchy.

Anyway list submitted, while I'm happy with it I know there's going to be a lot of "oh no I didn't even think of them" when I see other people's picks. It's very hard for me to think of a lot of these honestly, I guess the category of "puppet" isn't easily sorted through in my mind or something.

Everyone who's submitted a list so far (besides me). If you are not on this list and you submitted one, please give it another shot. If you are not on this list and still want to submit one, you technically have 12 more hours, but if you get it in by 10 AM PST tomorrow I'll still count it. I'll start banking entries over the weekend and the thread will start on Monday.
