Trivia / Godzilla Tokyo SOS

  • Executive Meddling: See below, where Kamoebas was originally going to be Anguirus.
  • What Could Have Been:
    • The role of a dead monster who washes up ashore having had its throat slit by Godzilla was originally going to be Anguirus, but Toho decided against it, feeling that fans may not be too keen on seeing such a fan-favorite being killed like that. A gigantic Liopleurodon kaiju was also considered for this part, but Toho felt it would be a waste of a new monster. Therefore, they settled on Kameobas - whose death serves as a Take That! to Gamera.
      • Toho then considered having Godzilla kill Anguirus again in "Final Wars" but budgetary restraints saved him.

    • Supplemental material for the film suggests the Kaiju DNA Freezer would be used to create more cyborg kaiju and escalate into a full-out Mecha Apocalypse.
    • Tezuka was apparently given four different story outlines to choose from for the film, but he found them all boring and wrote his own that ended up being the final version.
    • Tezuka also submitted a draft for a potential solo Kiryu film some time after production on this film wrapped, but it never came to be.
