History

Showa Series

Mothra vs. Godzilla

Godzilla approaches Nagoya Castle in Mothra vs. Godzilla
As Godzilla rampaged across the countryside, he paused. A graceful, tall and white Castle stood between him and Nagoya. The city's Castle was only slightly shorter than Godzilla, but offered no resistance as Godzilla's heavy weight was used to his full advantage. He quickly charged at the building, but he tripped on the moat, falling on top of it and breaking the castle apart.

Battra approaches Nagoya Castle in Godzilla vs. Mothra

After rising from the sea in his larval form, Battra approached Nagoya Castle, towering over it. He quickly dealt with the building by blasting it several times with his horn, and what was left was quickly crushed under his body. The attacks dealt on Battra by the opposing MBAW-93s and Type 90 Tanks did little damage to him as he moved on into the city of Nagoya itself.

Trivia

  • The Nagoya Castle prop is responsible for giving the MosuGoji suit its characteristic 'wobbly-lip.' During filming, Haruo Nakajima fell onto the prop while still in the suit after tripping on some of the miniatures, and loosened several of the teeth, as well as crushing the castle underneath him as he fell. Eiji Tsuburaya liked the scene, and thus kept it in the finished product.
