Trivia

  • Most of the locations on (and around) Godzilla Island are named after various Toho special effects films and monsters that did not appear in the series. For example, Matango Island is named after the Matango. Gorath Volcano is named after the collapsed star from 1961's Gorath. The Sanda Plains are named after Sanda the "Brown Gargantua" from 1966's The War of the Gargantuas. Both Gabara Pond and Gaira Mountain are also named after monsters that, like the Matango and Sanda, did not appear in the Godzilla Island series, a tribute to the long and rich history of Toho's monster movies.
  • Near the end of the series, it is discovered that Godzilla Island is located on what used to be the ancient continent of Mu, the home of the villains in the 1963 film Atragon. While the sea dragon Manda never appears, the Gotengo (known here as the "Gyotengo") does make an appearance.
