Did You Know?
The Manda puppet is the same one used in Atragon
(1963). However, a new head was designed for it minus the horns due to the fact that the old one looked too similar to King Ghidorah's. See more
When Ghidorah fires his rays at Rodan and Mothra, Mothra is knocked into the air by the ensuing explosions, then stops in the air for a moment, and suddenly continues flying up again. See more
I didn't think Tokyo would escape this terror, but Rodan, Godzilla and Manda are all here at the same time.
That's correct. New York, London, Moscow - they were all very unlucky.
Emergency! Emergency! Mothra is now in District Number 5.
In Toho's international version, their English language credits list special effect director Sademasa Arikawa as "Sanemasa Arikawa." See more
A Toho Video documentary released in the 1980s contained several unused and deleted takes from this film. The majority of this footage consists of alternate takes of finished scenes, such as the raids on Moscow and Paris by Rodan and Gorosaurus (respectively). Toho also filmed much more footage of the UN's defense of Tokyo, including a number of shots of missile launchers being deployed from the roofs of skyscrapers.
The most notable unused shot in this feature has Godzilla thrashing the monster Manda against several Tokyo buildings. According to Haruo Nakajima, this was an impromptu act at the end of a take. This was likely removed from the finished film as both monsters were under Kilaak control and shouldn't have been fighting. See more
