Rastan Kill Monsters

T-Rexes Don't Scare Ya, Huh?

How about this guy?

Dragon (CL 20 / 64,920 XP)

This stat block is for the classical "giant, flying, fire-breathing brute," rather than for sophisticated riddle-telling tea-drinkers. To make a sophisticated riddle-telling tea-drinker, increase the Int to 18, giving the dragon five additional trained skills (presumably in the Knowledge or Perform arenas, or Spellcraft if you want it to cast spells). You can also give your dragon levels in Scholar or other appropriate classes.

Crush A dragon may attempt to land (or jump) upon its foes, crushing them under its body. Moving into its foes' space provokes an attack of opportunity. If the crush attack is successful, the targets take the crush damage immediately, are considered pinned, and begin to suffocate. They continue to take the crush damage every round until the dragon moves, at which point they are left prone in the square they occupied when they were attacked. Any foe that is not hit by the crush attack is immediately moved out of the crush-effect square to the nearest unoccupied square.
Flame Breath A dragon's flame breath may be spread in a 10-square cone or a 20-square line, automatically attacking everything within the area of effect. Any creature that takes damage from the dragon's breath catches on fire and begins to take normal fire damage on the next round (see the normal fire rules). The dragon may not use its flame breath again until 1d4 rounds have passed.
Natural Armor A dragon's thick scales give it +10 natural armor and DR 10 (bypassed by magic weapons).
Snatch A dragon that hits with a bite or claw attack may immediately attempt a grapple check against that target as a free action. If successful, the target is considered to be carried by the dragon, taking damage automatically until it escapes. The dragon is not considered grappled; a common tactic is to fly to a great height and drop the target.
Spell Resistance A dragon's inherently magical nature gives it +15 to all defense scores against the effects of spells. The dragon may choose to suppress this ability.
Tail Slap A dragon that successfully hits with its tail slap moves the target 1 square any direction as with a bull rush. The target cannot be moved into a solid object or another creature's fighting space.

Rar. ;)

Rake If a griffon begins its turn grappling a target, it may perform two claw attacks against that target as a swift action.

Damage Reduction Kaijura gains DR 50 against radiation or electricity.
Frightful Presence As a free action, Kaijura gets an attack at +30 vs. the Will defense of any creature of large size or smaller within 20 squares. A successful attack indicates that the target has -2 to all ability checks, skill checks, attacks, and defenses against Kaijura for 10 rounds.
Natural Armor Kaijura's thick, scaly hide gives it +30 natural armor and provides DR 25.
Natural Swimmer Kaijura gets training in the Swim skill for free. It may take 10 on any Swim check, even if rushed or distracted.
Spell Resistance Kaijura gets +20 to all its defense scores against spells.
Stomp By moving through the space of any creature or object of size huge or smaller, Kaijura gets an attack at +37 vs. the Ref defense of that creature as a free action. A successful attack does 3d6+20 damage to the target as Kaijura stomps on them.
Unique As a unique creature, Kaijura adds ½ its level to its defense scores and gets 3x its maximum hit die at 1st level as if it were a heroic character.

They don't get much scarier short of rising up from R'lyeh.
