Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Killer Whale, along with the novel and film featuring it, is inspired by the American novel Moby-Dick.
  • A Japanese book about Daiei's giant monster films presents a scenario similar to Toho's Destroy All Monsters, featuring Gamera joining forces with several Earth monsters and former enemies of his against an alliance between the Zigrans and the Virasians. One of the Earth monsters that aids Gamera is a giant whale named Whale God God Gein (鯨神 ゴッドゲイン,   Kujira Gami Goddo Gein), a certain reference to the Killer Whale.[1] This whale battles a Zigran in New York.[2]
