I can't believe that Godzilla was the only surviving member of its species. If we continue nuclear testing, very soon, another Godzilla might appear, somewhere else in the world, again... „ 

Kyohei Yamane

The menace was gone. So was a great man. But the whole world could wake up and live again. „ 

Steve Martin


This story begins in the faraway Pacific, on a tiny island atoll miles away from inhabited land and used for testing the atomic and hydrogen bomb. Inside an unimposing-looking shelter, such as this, is housed the mightiest weapon of destruction known to man. Strategy teams, composed of the finest military and scientific minds, are finalizing their plans for Mission: Gigantic, the explosion of this new 20th century weapon. The most complicated and sensitive instruments yet devised are brought into play for this all-important mission.
And now on a battleship in the remote Pacific, from which all shipping has been banned, the moment of command approaches. The seconds are running out.

— Post-opening credits narration

And there you see it, the explosion of the mighty hydrogen bomb. Buildings disintegrate. Concrete is reduced to powder. Steel vaporizes. Solids turn liquid and liquids change into gas. Destruction is total and complete.
And then, the downward shockwave, like some gigantic and murderous hammer, pulverizing all that remains. The shock is recorded ten thousand miles away, as the angry mushroom cloud advances toward the stratosphere.
On a another portion of the globe, the Air Force is engaged in the testing of a second bomb, even mightier than the Navy testing bomb. The bomb bay doors are open. The bomb is in position. Target: a clustered semicircle of modern battleships. If all calculations are correct, in less than two minutes, there will be no ships at all below. Nothing but boiling sea and the sullen, fire filled sky.

— Post-opening credits narration

On target! The kill is complete. But what have these tests done to Mother Earth? Can the human race continue to deliver these staggering blows without arousing somewhere in the depths of Earth a reaction, a counter attack, a horror still undreamed of? There are persons in the Japanese islands who believe that the horror has already been seen.
What is the aftermath? This is the story of such an aftermath.

— Post-opening credits narration

After studying all of the relevant data, I can now state that the unidentified flying object is a giant flying reptile, closely related to the extinct Pteranodon. So far, here are the data we have gathered for you:
Its weight is over 100 tons and it has a wingspread of perhaps 500 feet. Because of its size and supersonic flight, it generates a shockwave with all the destructive force of a typhoon. Just one thing more: Although related to the Pteranodon, the creature is a carnivorous reptile and belongs to a species called Rodan.

— Kyuichiro Kashiwagi

And when, still calling to each other, one of them fell at last into the molten lava stream, the other still refused to save itself. Last of its kind, blasters of the air and Earth, strongest, swiftest creatures that ever breathed, now they sank against the Earth like weary children. Each had refused to live without the other, and so they were dying together. I wondered whether I, a twentieth-century man, could ever hope to die as well. „ 

Shigeru Kawamura

King Kong vs. Godzilla

I said I would attempt to explain. After examining photographs of Godzilla taken by the I.C.S., I tend to classify him as a prehistoric species of dinosaur, possibly a cross between the gigantic Tyrannosaurus rex and the Stegosaurus, which is sometimes known as the "plated dinosaur". Roughly, this, uh, particular form of reptile existed somewhere between 97 and 125 million years ago. „ 

— Dr. Arnold Johnson

Well, in Mexico, they found a frog which they think laid dormant for two million years. In Japan, the flowers bloomed recently from lotus seeds 3,000 years old. The fact that Godzilla is here, and alive, forces us to reconsider many theories on suspended animation. „ 

— Dr. Arnold Johnson

Fossils found in Japan resemble Godzilla. Also, he headed instinctively for Japan, like a salmon returning to the waters in which he was born. It's my opinion Godzilla thinks he's heading home. „ 

— Dr. Arnold Johnson

Well, I know the atom bomb is being considered, but that would be more destructive than the creature itself. As a reptile, Godzilla might shy away from electricity. But, at this time, I wouldn't care to hazard a guess. „ 

— Dr. Arnold Johnson

Legends of giant gorillas have persisted for some time. Now, the fact that Kong and Godzilla have appeared at the same time is interesting, scientifically.
Godzilla has a brain about this size. He is sheer brute force, while Kong is a thinking animal. His brain is considerably larger, about ten times the size of this gorilla skull.
Being instinctive rivals, there is no doubt that they will attempt to destroy one another.

— Dr. Arnold Johnson

I do. Being amphibious, Godzilla is probably lurking in the ocean depths off Japan, where the depths go to about 20,000 fathoms. He could be puzzled at the changes taken place during his long sleep. But I have no doubt that when he decides to return to land, he'll select Japan. „ 

— Dr. Arnold Johnson

It appears that King Kong, scenting the presence of a hated enemy, is determined to destroy Godzilla. Thus, a battle of the giants, which may or may not have taken place millions of years ago, may be recreated soon on the Nasu plain. „ 

— Dr. Arnold Johnson

Mothra vs. Godzilla

Just as you distrust us, so we distrust others as well. It's wrong. We're all human. As humans we are responsible for each other. We are related. Refuse us and you abandon your brothers. We must learn to help each other. „ 

Ichiro Sakai

Are you saying you have power of attorney from Mothra? „ 

Jiro Torahata

I undersand you mistrust us... but even as we speak, many people are losing their lives to Godzilla. There are many good people among them, but even bad ones have the right to live. You may call it God's punishment, but all people are equal before God. God plays no favorites. „ 

Junko Nakanishi

Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla

When a black mountain appears above the clouds, a monster will arive and try to destroy the world. But when the red moon sets and the sun rises in the west, two monsters will appear to save the people. „ 

— Azumi Prophecy

The Return of Godzilla

When mankind falls into conflict with nature, monsters are born. „ 

Makoto Hayashida

Nature has a way sometimes of reminding man of just how small he is. She occasionally throws up the terrible offsprings of our pride and carelessness, to remind us of how puny we really are in the face of a tornado, an earthquake, or a Godzilla. The reckless ambitions of man are often dwarfed by their dangerous consequences. For now, Godzilla, that strangely innocent and tragic monster, has gone to Earth. Whether he returns or not, or is never again seen by human eyes, the things he has taught us remain. „ 

Steve Martin

Godzilla vs. Biollante

Godzilla and Biollante aren't monsters. It's the unscrupulous scientists who create them who are monsters. „ 

Genshiro Shiragami

Biollante. A spirit of the plant in Norse mythology. Only this plant has a human spirit. „ 

Genshiro Shiragami

Godzilla vs. Mothra

Over 12,000 years ago, there was a guardian of the Earth named Mothra. At that time, there was an advanced civilization on Earth and the Cosmos were in perfect order. But then something terrible happened. Some scientists created a device to control Earth's climate. This device greatly offended the Earth... So it created the black Mothra... Battra was its name, and it was a very fierce beast. It destroyed everything and anything that was endangering the life of the Earth. „ 

Cosmos explaining the origins of Mothra and Battra

If the world lives to see another century, please remember what Mothra did for you and the planet you live on. „ 


Godzilla vs. Destoroyah

If [the Oxygen Destroyer] had have been used on the ground, it is quite obvious that Tokyo would have become a cemetery. „ 

Kensaku Ijuin

He's not a baby anymore. He is a Godzilla. More like Godzilla Junior. „ 

Takaki Aso


He's not some monster trying to evade you. He's just an animal. If you find what he wants, then he'll come to you „ 

Niko Tatopoulos

Niko Tatopoulos: “At least they could've hired a real actor. This guy is embarrassing!
Elsie Chapman: “What do you mean?
Niko Tatopoulos: "And is that thing made of rubber?"
Elsie Chapman: "I don't know, it's too blurry to tell. Maybe the creature-"
Niko Tatopoulos: "Elsie, please. This is a publicity stunt. Tourism must be down in Scotland, so the locals faked an attack.
Niko Tatopoulos and Elsie Chapman discussing the validity of some footage of Nessie in DeadLoch

Godzilla: Cataclysm

They were gone. The Monsters. Gone at last. And we prayed. Even those who were too young to remember the era of the kaiju offered their prayers... As if paying homage to ancient gods. Some prayed to Mothra for good fortune. Others called on Ghidorah to bring the rain. Still others believed Ebirah would bring plentiful fishing trips. Even I prayed. I did not believe the monsters to be gods. I knew better. But I prayed just the same. I prayed to Godzilla. I prayed... Begging Godzilla to never return. But... in my experience... prayers are seldom answered. „

And now, ladies and gentlemen, before I tell you any more, I'm going to show you the greatest thing your eyes have ever beheld. He was a king and a god in the world he knew, but now he comes to civilization merely a captive, a show to gratify your curiosity.

Real Life

Tomoyuki Tanaka

The thesis was very simple. What if a dinosaur sleeping in the Southern Hemisphere had been awakened and transformed by the bomb? What if it attacked Tokyo? „ 

Tomoyuki Tanaka

As long as the arrogance of mankind exists, Godzilla will survive. „ 

Tomoyuki Tanaka

Godzilla is the son of the atomic bomb. He is a nightmare created out of the darkness of the human soul. He is the sacred beast of the apocalypse. „ 

Tomoyuki Tanaka

Jun Fukuda

I can hardly call it acting, but I talk big about it now! „ 

Kenpachiro Satsuma on his role as Hedorah[1]

Ishiro Honda

Monsters are tragic beings; they are born too tall, too strong, too heavy, they are not evil by choice. That is their tragedy. „ 

Ishiro Honda

They do not attack people because they want to, but because of their size and strength, mankind has no other choice but to defend himself. After several stories such as this, people end up having a kind of affection for the monsters. They end up caring about them. „ 

— Ishiro Honda

Haruo Nakajima

I already knew I could hardly become a star like Akira Takarada. I didn't have the face for it. At first, I could only become a bit player; and then, I was offered this. For the first time in Japanese film history. And once I was inside Godzilla, I became irreplaceable; it would be possible to replace all of the other actors, but not me. If I didn't get to work because I was sick, none of the staff would be able to do their work. All of this gave me a tremendous sense of pride. „
