Weapons, vehicles, and races

  • Galactic Peace Union
  • Galactic Peace Union spaceship



  • "Kenichiro Terasawa" is likely a pseudonym, as it matches the name of the writer character in Godzilla vs. King Ghidorah.
  • This manga was illustrated by Hurricane Ryu Hariken, a suit actor for many Toho monsters during the Heisei series.
  • This manga features several new monsters based on Garasharp and the unmade monsters Marukobukarappa and Nezura.
  • The Galactic Peace Union's spaceship in the manga resembles a giant-sized version of the Pairans; benevolent starfish-shaped aliens from the 1956 Daiei film Warning from Space.
  • Despite its name, Powered Gyaos is actually a multi-headed, Chimera-like combination of all of Gamera's foes, from the original Showa era film series.
