    Giant, mythical, magical dragons, wrecking havoc on local towns and mayor cities, some even fighting each other as well.
    Can Skyrim be considered part of the kaiju genre? Even unintentionally?

    those arent really dragons. they're wyverns (dragons head with wings, back legs, and a reptilian body). a kailu would represent something from the japanese culture, like godzilla, which is known as a kaiju. so unless theres wyverns in japanese mythology, I would say no.

    Wyverns are defined as "a winged two-legged dragon with a barbed tail" so that's just nitpicking.

    True, but wyverns are classified as a type of dragons, and plus i wouldn't exactly call them wyverns since skyrim's dragons can breathe fire, while wyverns cannot, though i get that it's the way of the voice and not actually fire-breathing.
