Gojira Tai Megagirasu: Ji Shometsu Sakusen (2000) Godzilla returns to terrorize Japan! This time, however, Japan has two new weapons to defend themselves. The Gryphon, a high-tech ship, and the Dimension Tide, a device that creates artificial black holes! During a test of the Dimension Tide, eggs appear in the city of Shibuya and hatch into terrifying Meganurons! These creatures need water to grow and flood the city of Shibuya by breaking underground water veins. As they multiply and grow, they start to feed on the energy of humans. After gathering enough energy, they transform in to giant dragonfly monsters called Meganuras! And now they target Godzilla for energy to feed to the larva of their queen, which eventually hatches into the terrifying 60-meter Megaguirus who also begins to attack Godzilla for his energy. Now a 3-way battle between Godzilla, the Megaguirus, and humans begins! Will Godzilla win? Will humanity survive?

Movie Trivia:
  • Although they do not look alike, the Meganuron (a.k.a Meganulon) in this movie is based on the Meganurons that attack the villagers in the Toho monster movie classic, Sora no daikaijū Radon (1956).
  • The infamous "Giant Leap" Godzilla performs against Megaguirus during the final battle is a tribute to Godzilla suit actor Tsutomu Kitagawa's stuntwork in Toei's Super Sentai Series (featured as "Dynaman" (1988) and "Power Rangers" in the US).
  • Toho continued their tradition of casting actors from their science fiction films of the 1950s and 1960s. The character of Yoshino Yoshizawa is played by Yuriko Hoshi who had previously starred as Yoka in _Gojira tai Mosura (1964)_ and as Naoko (a completely different character) in the sequel _San daikaiju: Chikyu saidai no kessen (1964)_.
  • Some of the footage from the original 'Gojira (1954)' was recreated since Godzilla's appearance has changed from the original version.
