War God (戰神,   Zhànshén) is a 1976 tokusatsu kaiju film produced by Dominic Pictures. The movie was released to Taiwanese theaters on July 24, 1976.


A trio of gigantic white-colored aliens (supposedly Martians) attack Hong Kong. With humanity desperate and with no scientific means to combat the invaders, a statue of the legendary Guan Yu comes alive. And grows to a matching height, in order to face the aliens in battle.

That was Taiwanese, But that reminds of Tsu Hong Wu aka A Story of Lou Po-Wen 朱洪武 1971, Monster from the Sea aka Devil from the Bottom of the Sea 海魔 (Hai Mo) 1974 or 1975, Sea God and Ghosts aka Prince of Dragon King

龍王三太子 (Longwang San Taizi) 1977, and The Fairy and the Devil 觀世音與海龍王 (Guan Shiyin yu Hai Longwang) 1982.

Where did this title come from? I've seen it called War God everywhere else.

This page is quite old, so I'm really not sure. God of War and War God are minor translation differences though, so its understandable. If its more accurate as War God, go ahead and change it.

This is the original and the PlayStation games are ripoffs.

Uh, I highly doubt that the people who made God of War were aware of the existence of an obscure Japanese movie from 1976 with the same name as their game series.

I'm pretty sure he was being sarcastic.
