Trivia

When Universal Studios, responsible for both the "Six Million Dollar Man, The" (1974) and the "Bionic Woman, The" (1976) threatened to sue Cinema Shares Releasing over the title (Godzilla Vs. the Bionic Monster), the movie was quickly retitled Godzilla vs. the Cosmic Monster.

This was the final appearance of Angilas.

This was produced as Godzilla's 20th Anniversary film (which was also stated in the original Japanese theatrical trailers).

This was the last Godzilla film scored by composer Masaru Sato.

The guardian monster King Shisar is based on the actual "shisa" lion-dog guardian statues in Okinawa. Originally from China, they are statues that ward off evil spirits. Another Japanese name for them is "komainu" (lion-dog).
