The story outline was composed by Shin'ichi Sekizawa, one of the Godzilla series' most prolific writers, but the actual script was written by director Jun Fukuda and completed just before filming began. See more »
Megalon can only fire one beam, but in certain shots during the city destruction, multiple beams are seen. This is because these shots have been taken from movies featuring the three-headed monster King Ghidirah firing beams from his multiple heads. See more »
Inventor Goro Ibuki:
[speaking into the Miniature Control Transmitter]
Jet Jaguar, lets go now.
[an idle Jet Jaguar nods in response and walks away]
Oh? What's the matter with him?
Inventor Goro Ibuki:
[smiles in fascination]
Dunno... I guess he decided his job was done. But still, I reckon he'd do it again, if the need ever rose again.
Well, let's just hope that it doesn't. We'll warn the scientists to be more careful in the future, and let Seatopia rest in peace.
[Goro nods in agreement]

The German dub of the film infamously renamed Jet Jaguar to King Kong in an attempt to fool audiences, but it also contained other differences. Most importantly, Goro was changed from being Rokuro's much older brother to his father. And instead of contacting the aliens of M Space Hunter Nebula, the Seatopian people contact a certain "Alpha Base". See more »
Godzilla vs. Megalon was one of the DUMBEST Toho movies in the 1970's. The way they did the monsters in this movie looked embarrassing like Jet Jaguar for an example. By the end of this film, the song called "Jet Jaguar" was worse than the whole soundtrack and it should not have been part of the movie. The fight scenes in this film were so silly. It didn't feel like they were fighting, they looked more like kids playing with each other in costumes. The human scenes were as bad as the monster scenes. Godzilla's face really looked like a monkey instead of a dinosaur face, like it should have. The story was horrible in many ways. This movie didn't really feel like a Godzilla movie at all.
