Trivia / Godzilla Final Wars

  • Milestone Celebration: Was released in time for the 50th anniversary of the franchise.
  • Production Posse: This movie marked the fourth time Ryuhei Kitamura, Tak Sakaguchi, and Hideo Sakaki has worked together, after Versus, Alive, and Aragami.
  • Name's the Same: This movie's Captain Gordon is unrelated to CAPTAIN GORDON, DEFENDER OF EARTH!
  • What Could Have Been:
    • A very mild case, Kiryu, Gorosaurus, and KING GHIDORAH (who Monster X would've transformed into instead of Kaiser Ghidorah) were all slated to appear in the film as well. Unfortunately, none of them made the cut, and Kiryu and Gorosaurus were replaced by the Gotengo and Zilla.
    • Additionally, the film was initially intended to be a follow-up to the Heisei series with the film's Godzilla being the adult Junior. Since one idea was for the finale to have Destoroyah instead of Kaiser Ghidorah, this could have made for a great confrontation, as Junior would want revenge on Destoroyah for killing him.
    • Godzilla was to actually kill Rodan, Anguiurus, and King Cessar, but this was ultimately changed to him sparing them as a nod to his friendly relations with them in the past. And also because they'd already lost the suits without filming it.
