Godzilla vs. Gamera (ゴジラ対ガメラ,   Gojira tai Gamera) was a one-act tokusatsu kaiju stage show co-created by Toho and Daiei, which took place in March of 1970 at the Expo's Festival Plaza venue during the Children Festival in the Osaka World's Fair.[1][2] The show was performed once every night for 10 days. Haruo Nakajima was initially booked to perform three times a day as Godzilla, but the complexity of the event caused the show times to be reduced to once a night.[1]


Several kaiju, including Godzilla, Gorosaurus, Minilla, Gamera, Space Gyaos, and Jiger, appear and engage in a titanic battle.[2]

  • Godzilla and Gamera have crossed paths extremely few times since this stage show. They met again in another series of live performances at the 1996 Hero Festival, held by the puppet group Atelier Koganemushi, which would go on to produce the web series Godziban.[3] In 2002, Kadokawa approached Toho with an offer to co-produce a Godzilla and Gamera crossover film, but Toho declined. Since then, Gamera and Godzilla both appeared in the 2017 video game City Shrouded in Shadow, although not in the same levels, and the Gamera incarnation from GAMERA -Rebirth- was added to the video game Godzilla Battle Line in September 2023.[4]
