To be added.


  • The Killer Whale, along with the novel and film featuring it, is inspired by the American novel Moby-Dick.
  • You're the Strongest, Gamera, a 1995 Japanese book, includes a scenario of the author's invention similar to Toho's Destroy All Monsters, in which Gamera joins 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,   Geishin Goddo Gein), a certain reference to the Killer Whale.[1] This whale is physically powerful, immune to W's cell activity suspension beams, and later battles a Zigran in New York.[2]
  • The title Kujira Gami (lit. Whale God) has also been used in several other franchises, most notably in the GeGeGe no Kitarō series as an alias of Dai-Kaijū. A scene in GeGeGe no Kitarō closely resembles one of visuals of Daiei's Whale God.
