Trivia

  • Kujira Gami, along with the novel and film featuring it, are based on 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 Kujira Gami God Gein (鯨神 ゴッドゲイン,   Kujira Gami Goddo Gein), a certain reference to Kujira Gami.[1] This whale battles a Zigran in New York.[2]
