As this happens a meteorite falls from the sky containing Ghidorah, the monster responsible for her planet's destruction. At the same time, Godzilla and Rodan emerge from hibernation and not only attack Japan, but each other as well. Mothra, along with its twin priestesses, attempt to convince Godzilla and Rodan to stop their fighting each other and to team up to fight the new monster.

More Movie Taglines:
  • The Three-Headed Monster battles Godzilla, Mothra and Rodan for the world!
Movie Quote(s):
  • Shobijin: Oh Godzilla, such terrible language!
  • Naoko Shindo: [Godzilla, Rodan, and Mothra are conversing] Naoko Shindo: Oh it looks like they're having a conversation. Oh Shindo, what do you think they're saying to each other? Detective Shindo: Huh, how would I know? You expect me to understand monster talk?
  • Detective Shindo: Ahhh, these monsters are as stupid as human beings!
  • [the twin fairies translate a conversation between Godzilla, Rodan and Mothra] Shobijin, Shobijin: Oh, Godzilla, what terrible language.
Movie Trivia:
  • In the original concept King Ghidorah's wings were rainbow colored. Also, the creature was to breath fire from it's three heads. In the final concept they emit gravity rays.
  • Director Ishirô Honda originally wanted Yoshio Tsuchiya for the role of Malness. But he was unavailable due to his commitment to the Akira Kurosawa film Akahige (1965).
  • Toho did not reveal to the public that Godzilla was played by a person in a costume until this film was released because the people who worked in the Japanese film industry in the 1950s and early 1960s tried to keep their techniques as secret as possible. The purpose was to create a mythical atmosphere, surrounding the industry. No one would be allowed to visit the set.
  • This is the only film in the original Godzilla series in which King Ghidorah is not controlled by aliens.
  • This was the first movie to feature King Ghidorah, who would later go on to be Toho's main villain monster, fighting both Godzilla and Mothra as well as making appearances on Japanese television.
