Showa era

Gamera Super Monster

After revealing his plans to invade the Earth, the captain of the Zanon released the kaiju Gyaos, Zigra, Viras, Jiger, Guiron and Barugon, and also briefly utilized a mind-control device released from the ship to control Gamera. After Gamera defeated all of the monsters, Giruge arrived to fight the Spacewomen personally, but was defeated by them and chose to defect after she was spared by the heroes. Unfortunately, this didn't last long, as the Zanon killed Giruge using a laser beam. The Zanon flew into battle to kill Gamera, but was destroyed after Gamera sacrificed himself by slamming into the ship and detonating it.


Gamera the Giant Monster

The Zanon is mentioned briefly when explaining that Gamera was resurrected using Atlantean technology after sacrificing himself.
