aka Godzilla vs The Cosmic Monster
A robot Godzilla is built by aliens from the Third Planet of the Black Hole who think they can use it to conquer Earth by defeating the real thing who is currently up and about after giving Angilas a hiding. They reckon without help for Godzilla from King Seesar, silly boys!



1975
Terror Of Mechagodzilla
aka Monsters From An Unknown Planet
Aliens from the Third Planet of the Black Hole use a reconstructed Mechagodzilla to help them invade Earth. Titanosaurus, a giant underwater monster controlled by a mad scientist also gets involved and poor old Godzilla is on the receiving end, but eventually triumphs with a little help from the puny humans who manage to neutralise Titanosaurus long enough for Godzilla to get the upper hand.



1980
Gamera: Super Monster
aka Uchu Kaiju Gamera
Alien 'Zanons' send all the super-monsters Gamera has ever fought to try and destroy Earth's hero monster in a final battle. The film uses a lot of footage from previous Gamera movies.

1992
Godzilla vs Mothra
aka The Battle For Earth
Godzilla, Mothra and Battra are awoken when a meteorite hits the Earth. Mothra and Battra resume their ancient battle while Godzilla kicks Japanese buildings about. The Moths end up having to fight together against Godzilla in order to protect their eggs, Battra dying as they despatch the big green one back into the ocean.

1996
Mothra

It fights new versions of Mothra in MothraLeo and AquaMothra before it is defeated.


1998
Godzilla
The giant radiation-mutated dinosaur comes ashore in New York which it has chosen as its ideal nesting site and causes huge destruction in avoiding the efforts of all and sundry to destroy him. Brand new computer-generated Godzilla from Tristar. Pretty, but lacks personality.

In order to save the present-day world Metal Mothra travels back in time to slice up a younger version of King Ghidorah.

A young girl, whose parents were killed by Gamera in 1995 during his battle with the Gyaos, found a monster egg at the time and has been raising it (called 'Iris') on blood ever since in order to get revenge on Gamera. Huge destruction follows and it includes a bit more human interest than others.


1999
Godzilla 2000
aka Gojira Ni-Sen Mireniamu
The Godzilla Prediction Network tracks a Godzilla as it starts destroying a coastal city. A recently discovered 60 million year old underwater rock starts to float towards the creature which destroys it with its atomic breath, revealing a UFO inside.

Godzilla tracks it down and the UFO mysteriously transforms itself into a gigantic monster called Orga for the final showdown.


2000
Godzilla vs Megaguirus: G-Eradication Operation
Godzilla's old human adversaries get together again to create a plasma based ultimate anti-Godzilla weapon - 'Dimension Tide' - but a badly-aimed shot hits a nest of insect eggs, creating giant dragonflies called Meganura. Their queen, Megaguiras, sees Godzilla as a rival and the usual city-stomping action follows, with the evil scientists apparently trying to wipe out anything that is left standing as well.

2001
Gojira, Mosura, Kingu Gidora: Daikaiju Soukougeki
50 years on, Godzilla is attacking Japan again. Isayama, an aged member of a holy cult which protected Japan in ancient times, calls on his brotherhood to raise the three monsters King Ghidorah, Mothra and Baragon to protect them from the lizard. A survivor of Godzilla's last visit, now General Tachibana, has also been preparing for a rematch should Godzilla ever raise his head again. Tachibana's daughter Yuri follows the monster battles as a TV reporter and is uneasy about the strong sensation of hatred which she feels emanating from the Godzilla.
