After five grueling rounds, we can finally declare that Godzilla has won the Movie Monster Showdown, proving that he is, in fact, the King of the Monsters! As it turned out, the only opponent that gave our favorite radioactive lizard anything close to a challenge was King Kong, who lost to Godzilla by a margin of 54% to 46% in the final round of voting. Until that point, the closest match-up the killer kaiju faced was from Pirates of the Caribbean’s Kraken, who failed to muster higher than 16% of the vote. On the other hand, while Kong also defeated all of his opponents pretty handily, his average margin of victory was a bit slimmer, with his greatest challenge coming from the T-Rex of Jurassic Park. Will the latest big screen face-off between the two, Godzilla vs. Kong, finish with a similar result? Only those who have seen the film know the answer.

Thanks again to everyone who participated, and we hope you had as much fun following along with the contest as we had putting it together. You never know when the next showdown bracket will appear on RT, so stay tuned, and stay out of the way of any giant monsters stomping through your city.
