Gojira Tai Mekagojira (2002) As a typhoon is raging across Japan, and a loud roar alerts the populace that they are once again being visited by a rampaging monster. The military manages to drive the beast back into the ocean, but another attack looks inevitable. In preparation, the Ministry of Science designs Kiriyu, a enormous lizard-like robot constructed from the bones of the first giant monster that attacked Tokyo almost fifty years earlier. Sure enough, just as the finishing touches are being put on Kiriyu, the real monster comes back to settle some old scores. Will the team of crack soldiers at Kiriyu's controls have what it takes to keep Shinagawa, and all of Japan, monster-free?

Movie Quote(s):
  • Akane Yashiro: I'll show you what Kiryu can do!
  • 2003 Prime Minister Hayato Igarashi: Kick his ass!
  • [Hayama sees Akane and Dr. Yuhara sitting together at a coffee bar] JSDF 2nd Lieutenant Hayama: [to Akane] You seem to have a lot of older fans. Are you giving off some kind of pheromone? Tokumitsu Yuhara: [stands up] How dare you! JSDF 2nd Lieutenant Hayama: [Pushes him away] Piss off! Akane Yashiro: [Akane hits Hayama in the back and pins him to the table] Hayama... that's enough.
  • Sara Yuhara: [after learning Godzilla is back] Why couldn't they bring my mother back... instead of a monster?
Movie Trivia:
  • Famed Japanese baseball player Hideki Matsui, a member of the New York Yankees since 2003, appears as himself. He. hits the massive home run as Kiriyu is flown towards Godzilla for the first time and helps a group of children get to a safe place during the sequence when Shinagawa's population is evacuated to make room for the fighting monsters. Matsui's nickname in Japan is "Gojira (Godzilla)."
  • Director Cameo: [Masaaki Tezuka] The maintenance worker who walks past Akane in the scene following the end credits.
  • Mechagodzilla's nickname is Kiryu. "Kiryu" means "Machine Dragon" or "Mechanized Dragon".
  • In Dr. Yuhara's first scene, he is showcasing an mechanical Trilobite and then is asked to help construct Kiryu from the first Godzilla's bones not long after. In Gojira (1954) a Trilobite was discovered in the first Godzilla's footprints.
  • Intended to be the first installment of a trilogy, but only one sequel was produced: Gojira tai Mosura tai Mekagojira: T˘ky˘ S.O.S. (2003). The next film, Gojira: Fainaru u˘zu (2004), had no connection with the previous two.
