Invasion of Astro-Monster, known in Japan as Kaijū Daisensō (怪獣大戦争, lit. "Great Monster War"), is a 1965 Japanese science fiction Kaiju film in which aliens from Planet X request the use of Godzilla and Rodan to fight off King Ghidorah, but actually have a better use for the three monsters.

Directed by Ishirō Honda.  Written by Shinichi Sekizawa.

Controller of Planet X[edit]

  • Our actions are controlled by electronic computers, not by human emotions.
  • Fools! Our computers are always invincible. Adjust them to normal!

Dialogue[edit]

Controller of Planet X:  We need an exterminator, one that would drive away King Ghidorah.  We need from you Monster Zero 1 and Monster Zero 2, Godzilla and Rodan.
Astronaut K. Fuji:  Are you serious?
Controller of Planet X:  Of course.  Deadly serious.  King Ghidorah was driven from Earth only with the combined strengths of Godzilla and Rodan.  Would you help us?
Astronaut K. Fuji:  Well, your request is quite unusual.  We do not know how to answer that.
Glenn:  Plus, we did not know where Godzilla and Rodan are.  If we did, how are we suppose to catch them and bring them here?

Quotes about Invasion of Astro-Monster[edit]

  • Not as popular as its two predecessors, the Daisenso-Godzilla featured a head slightly larger than that of the Mosugoji, with a round face and jaws. The body was thin and had no defined shape, appearing sack-like and unnatural. The fingers were not held apart like the Mosugoji but were grouped together, with the claws becoming less menacing; all following Godzilla suits until the 84 Godzilla would have this feature. On the plus side, the dorsal plates and the tail of the Daisenso-Godzilla were nicely detailed and the eyes were movable.
    • Robert Biondi, "The Evolution of Godzilla – G-Suit Variations Throughout the Monster King’s Twenty One Films", G-FAN #16 (July/August 1995)
