Godzilla vs. Destoroyah is a 1995 Japanese science fiction Kaiju film. It is the last film in the Heisei series, and revolves around Godzilla dying as he battles a race of mutant Pre-Cambrian crustaceans.
- Directed by Takao Okawara. Written by Kazuki Ōmori.
- As we all know, there's a hypothesis that Godzilla's power source, which is equal to the heart in a man, is nothing but a power reactor. Apparently, something is happening there, in the reactor, in Godzilla's heart. Look at this. I have here a thesis which accurately analyzes it from every point of view. It came through the Internet from a Japanese college boy. It's an interesting and certainly unusual opinion about Godzilla.
- Dr. Kensaku Ijuin: First you come and see me to warn me not to make an Oxygen Destroyer... now you want me to make one?
- Kenichi Yamane: It's the only way Godzilla can be destroyed now. Every other means has failed. You're the only one who can do it.
- Dr. Kensaku Ijuin: I said I could make one, but I didn't say it was going to be easy, did I? Besides-
- Yukari Yamane: Besides?
- Dr. Kensaku Ijuin: I made an analysis of the surrounding soil. I've seen the effect the Oxygen Destroyer had on it. If it had have been used on the ground, it's quite obvious that Tokyo would've become a cemetery.
- It's a major monster meltdown!
Quotes about Godzilla vs. Destoroyah
- I was surprised that Godzilla was going to die on land instead of in the ocean, which was his cradle. I think it's natural for Godzilla to die because he is a living thing, but I envisioned his death differently. My idea was based on the legend of the tomb of elephants. According to the legend, when an elephant begins to feel that he is going to die, he secretly goes to the tomb. I envisioned Godzilla returning to the South Pacific when he began to feel that his end was coming. There then would have been some implication that Godzilla had died.
- I had to wear an oxygen mask both in the water and on land because of the carbon monoxide. I fainted four times during the first day of filming. We were shooting the scene in which Godzilla emerges from the water as he approaches Hong Kong. I wasn't warned about the carbon monoxide, so I wasn't wearing an oxygen mask. We were shooting in water, so nobody could just run up to me when they saw me acting strangely. We were filming a long shot, so nobody was very close to me. The members of the staff didn't realize I'd fainted that first time until they started opening up the costume so I could get out.
