- Takayama was the second woman to write a Godzilla screenplay, after Kazue Kiba, who collaborated with Shinichi Sekizawa on Son of Godzilla.
- In Takayama's original scenario for Terror of Mechagodzilla, the role of Titanosaurus was filled by two dinosaurs called Titans, who became violent only when their necks were entangled. Her script also called for the total annihilation of Tokyo by Titanosaurus and Mechagodzilla, who would enter the city through Tokyo Bay and target Shinagawa ward first. Budget constraints forced Toho to scale back the destruction.
