Description: The Kraken is an ancient sea monster that has long demanded tribute (i.e. human sacrifice) from the islands of Greece. He has not confronted any other kaiju yet, but it can be assured that should he encounter one a fight would ensue, as the Kraken is a foul-tempered beast that is not taken to friendly discourse.

Description: The Kraken was seen again, almost three times larger than ever before, and a lot weirder. Although he was much more powerful, he was still vulnerable to petrification, but that comes with the eyes, plus he had six of those so he was doomed.
