Godzilla vs. Hedorah

Ken was attacked by a Hedorah during his father's dive, giving him a scar on his right hand. When a news crew came to his house, he mentioned that he named the monster Hedorah, and the name spread through the press. He had a dream about Godzilla attacking a pile of pollution and believed that Godzilla would save them from Hedorah. He spotted Godzilla from a rollercoaster at an amusement park when Hedorah first appears in its Flying Stage. He later attended a party on Mount Fuji and was nearly killed by Hedorah, but was saved by Godzilla. He later said goodbye to Godzilla when he returns to the sea after defeating Hedorah, and Godzilla gazed back.
