Wikizilla (ウィキジラ Wikijira), the encyclopedia of Godzilla, Gamera, King Kong, Toho monsters, and more that anyone can contribute to, is a collaborative Godzilla encyclopedia based on the wiki concept. Wikizilla's main focus is documenting the Godzilla franchise and the Godzilla fandom. It is powered by MediaWiki, and also uses the Semantic MediaWiki extension. Hosted by WikiTeq, Wikizilla is a member of the Tokupedia Hub.


Wikizilla was founded by user Danielwang on 22 July 2005, and was hosted by, focusing on films about Godzilla and King Kong. Over time, Gamera articles were also created, and eventually several non-Toho monsters appeared. Most of the non-Toho, Gamera and non-Godzilla articles were removed in early 2013 so that a general cleanup could take place, but they were gradually reinstated from 2014 onward, as Wikizilla absorbed the Gamera and King Kong wikis. In addition to these franchises, Wikizilla introduced pages for more obscure giant monsters that lacked an established series of their own, such as Gappa, Guilala and Gorgo. In July 2016, Wikizilla became independent from Wikia and received a new home at The new Wikizilla was founded by Titanollante,[1] who had been a user on the original Wikizilla since 25 January 2011. The decision to become independent from Wikia was made when the community came to the consensus that it desired greater freedom following the implementation of various policies and changes by Wikia that were considered detrimental to the site. Following the founding of the new site, the original site was re-christened Kaijupedia[2][3] in order to distinguish it from the new Wikizilla. Only 47 days after the establishment of Kaijupedia, Wikia began restoring it to its former condition, including the reversion of the name change. On 15 June 2017, it was renamed to Gojipedia.[4]
