When an ancient statue is moved for display in Expo '70, a giant, vaguely Triceratops-like monster is released. The monster goes to Japan in pursuit of the statue and ends up battling Gamera, the giant flying turtle.
Aliens from space plan to conquer the world using space monsters Gigan and King Ghidrah, which they control from their secret headquarters inside the head of the Godzilla-replica building at a theme park. The only thing that can stop them is the combined efforts of Godzilla and Anguirus. Written by

For a long time it was shown on the movie's poster that Gigan could fire an eye beam from his forehead, above his eye, yet this ability was never shown in the film. Many fans speculate that this was due to budget reasons, evident by the abundant amount of Stock Footage in the film. It was later reveal however by special effects director, Teruyoshi Nakano that the real reason it was never shown was because he didn't believe it fit with the character, so neither film demonstrated this ability for said reason. Additionally, Gigan also possesses the ability to breath fire, but was never shown to in the film for the same reason as above. See more »
Ghidorah's yellow beam is white in some shots. See more »
In the opening credits of the Japanese version, colorful lasers shoot from different directions, and pop up into strips within which each credit appears in white text. In the English versions, only the sound FX of the lasers are heard (standard text credits were used). See more »
