We all love Pokémon. They’re cute, they’re cuddly, and best of all, they fit in your pocket. However, in Pokémon Sword and Shield, some of our favourite creatures are getting a makeover of gargantuan proportions in the form of the new feature – Dynamaxing.

Dynamaxing turns your pocket-sized buddies into huge Godzilla-style beasts, for some seriously spectacular showdowns. In celebration of this gigantic new feature, we’re looking back to some of the largest monsters we’ve encountered in our gaming escapades.

Darkside – Kingdom Hearts

Size: 30ft

Darkside is the first boss you face in Kingdom Hearts and becomes a recurring enemy throughout the series. His chilling introduction marks the end of the tutorial letting the player know that despite it being a Disney game, Kingdom Hearts ain’t kids’ stuff.

Ludwig, The Accursed – Bloodborne

Size: approx. 40ft

This man-turned-eldritch horse-like being is perhaps the ultimate cautionary tale against messing with the occult. His hulking size makes him a tough opponent, and you’ll have to use every dodge technique in your arsenal to avoid his furious charges. Can we get giant Pikachu back?

Ancient Wyvern – Dark Souls 3

Size: approx. 90 ft

Dark Souls 3 is without a doubt one of the most visually-stunning games the series has to offer and to demonstrate this, we’ve got the huge Ancient Wyvern boss. This imposing beast chases you down, breathing fire from above before you get the chance to deliver the killing blow.

Adamantoise – Final Fantasy XV

Size: 2,341 ft

The Adamantoise is a recurring enemy-type in the Final Fantasy series, but never has he appeared in quite such a gigantic form. In XV, Adamantoise is a one-of-a-kind superboss who dwarves the game’s heroes with a frankly absurd mass. Pack a few potions for this one.

Jörmungandr (The World Serpent) – God of War

Size: Massive

Despite his imposing appearance, The World Serpent is actually a peaceful being, who becomes Kratos’ ally throughout the course of the story. What a sweet slithery boy.
