In Attack on Titan, humanity is besieged to the point of extinction by fearsome, man-eating, nigh-unkillable giants known as Titans. Though the Titans might be terrifyingly powerful monsters, they wouldn’t stand a chance against other movie monsters. They might be large and have Wolverine’s fast healing, but they’re still ultimately giant humans.

So Eren (the protagonist of Attack on Titan) and his friends don’t actually have to equip themselves with fancy manoeuvrable gear or razor sharp stainless steel swords. What they really need to do is build a portal to one of these other movie universes, and summon one of these monsters to unleash on the Titans.

Which monsters, you ask? Here are seven that could wipe the floor with the Titans.

1) Godzilla from Godzilla (2014)

Radioactive breath. A gigantic prehensile tail that’s as large as his body itself. Giant jaws that can break steel. Plus, he emits radiation, making him deadly to any living creature (unless we’re talking about aliens). He could easily slaughter an army of Titans and still go on to battle Mothra or whatever alien creature has descended upon the planet. Plus, Godzilla is 107 metres tall. The largest Titan of them all, the Colossal Titan (the first Titan you see in the movie), only comes up to 60 metres – just a little over half of Godzilla’s height.

Godzilla would be a Titan to those Titans.

2) Toshio Saeki from Ju-On 4: The Final Curse

As powerful as the Titans maybe, they’re still creatures of brute physical force. There’s no evidence to show that they’re immune to the supernatural. That’s where Toshio comes in. Imagine a Titan coming in and accidentally stomping on the house of Toshio and Kayako (Toshio’s mother), utterly wrecking it (which is completely possible since the movie takes place in Japan). Then the rest of the Titans wantonly stampede over the ruins of the house in their haste to get to the tasty, tasty humans.

They’ve just incurred the grudge of Toshio and Kayako upon their whole race. No Titan will be safe after that. Toshio will appear underneath their blankets, turn their bath waters into black ooze and strangle them with Kayako’s tentacle-like tresses. Attack on Titan would have ended really quickly if they stomped on the wrong house.

3) Indominus rex from Jurassic World

Remember the Indominus rex, a genetically engineered killing machine? It’s bad enough that dinosaurs like the Tyrannosaurus rex are already the deadliest of nature’s killing machines. The Indominus rex has the prodigious bite strength of the Tyrannosaurus rex, the intelligence and cunning of Velociraptors, and can camouflage itself and hide its own thermal signature. The Titans won’t even see the Indominus rex coming until it bites their nape (the weak spot of Titans) off.

4) The Kaiju from Pacific Rim

Quick, place your bets. Which race would dominate in an all-out battle – Kaiju or Titans? I’m placing my money on the Kaiju. While the Titans possess only vast physical strength and endurance, the Kaiju each have their own unique powers. It’s like watching humans (Titans) fighting mutants (Kaiju). It’d take a horde of Titans just to take down one Kaiju. And let’s not forget that the Kaiju have different power levels, with a Category 5 Kaiju being able to wipe out entire cities by itself. The Colossal Titan might be big, but it’ll have nothing on a Category 5 Kaiju.

5) Clover from Cloverfield

The horrifying thing about Clover is that you never really get a full, proper view of the monster. All that’s left is to your imagination, and whatever the Internet can turn up. That gives you an idea of how fast and lethal this monster is. And it’s between 75 to 90 metres tall – larger than even the Colossal Titan. In Cloverfield, the monster is a scared creature that’s lashing out at its environment. Fear is a very powerful motivator (it enabled Eren to kill as many Titans as he did), so imagine that fear turned on the Titans.

6) The Hulk from Avengers: Age of Ultron

Who can forget Iron Man’s classic comeback to Loki’s threat of “having an army” in the first Avengers?

“We have a Hulk.”

The Hulk is indestructible. And the angrier Hulk gets, the stronger Hulk gets. He might be tinier than the Titans, but that’s not going to be much of a problem when he gets angry enough to hit with the force of a nuclear missile. Just look at how Ant-Man‘s punches pack such a wallop because he’s minuscule but has the strength of a regular human. That’s how the Hulk’s going to take out the Titans – except his punches will probably knock their heads clean off.

7) Titans from Wrath of the Titans

Titans from Greek Mythology were far more than giant humans with super strength and fast healing. They were the ancestors of the gods, and held power on a par with the the deities that ruled the universe. A Titan from Wrath of the Titans was an elemental deity that held the power to wreck the world. Titans from Wrath of the Titans or Titans from Attack on Titan? It’s not even a fair fight.

But to truly understand the scale on which these monsters stand, you have to see what the Titans are like for yourself in Attack on Titan. It’s available at all Golden Village Cinemas, so watch it and judge for yourself – could the Titans defeat any of the monsters on this page?
