** The film itself was renamed by Toho for greater appeal in overseas distribution, Atragon being a portmanteau of the English words ''Atlantis Dragon'', a clear reference to Manda. The net result of this ExecutiveMeddling is that the movie's native-language title refers to the protagonist supership, and its overseas title does the same, but said overseas title was actually created in reference to the kaiju antagonist... a dragon that technically isn't even from Atlantis!
