* PlayingAgainstType: Akihiko Hirata plays as TheDragon, Mu agent 23. He plays another Dragon later in ''Film/EbirahHorrorOfTheDeep'' with [[ActorAllusion an eyepatch]].

Added DiffLines:

** 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!

Added DiffLines:

* RentAZilla: Manda


** Subverted with the Red Satan, supposed to be a super-advanced submarine but is destroyed after one encounter when is pursues a Mu submarine past crush depth.
