- Monsters of mass destruction.
- The Battle Cry that Could Save the World!
- The Monsters in in revolt. And the world is on the brink of destruction!!
- News Reader: The major cities of the world are being destroyed, one-by-one by the monsters: Moscow by Rodan, Peking by Mothra, London by Manda, Paris by Baragon. And, here's a special news bulletin. Godzilla is now in New York City. The city is being invaded by Godzilla!
Major Tada: I didn't think Tokyo would escape this terror, but Rodan, Godzilla and Manda are all here at the same time. Enraged Soldier: That's correct. New York, London, Moscow - they were all very unlucky. Announcer: Emergency! Emergency! Mothra is now in District Number 5.
Kilaak Queen: Ghidorah is a space monster. The monsters from Earth cannot win. I will get in touch with you, when you feel like giving up. Major Tada: Why that...
- Until Gojira: Fainaru u˘zu (2004), this movie featured more monsters than any other in the Godzilla series, with eleven total: Godzilla, Mothra, Rodan, King Ghidorah, Anguirus, Minya, Spiega (aka Kumonga), Baragon, Gorosaurus, Manda, and Varan!
Toho decided to include monsters that have not been seen in a while, along with some of their other monsters whose movies were not connected to the Godzilla series. Anguirus had made his first appearance since "Godzilla Raids Again" (1955); Baragon was last seen in "Frankenstein Conquers the World" (1965); Gorosaurus starred in "King Kong Escapes" (1967); Manda was in "Atragon" (1963) and Varan starred in "Varan the Unbelievable" (1958).
Destroy All Monsters brought Ishir˘ Honda back as director and Akira Ifukube as the musical composer for the first time in three years. The previous two Godzilla movies, Godzilla vs. the Sea Monster, and Son of Godzilla, were directed by Jun Fukuda, while the score was composed by Masaru Sato. During this time period, producer Tomoyuki Tanaka wanted to see if another team was capable of directing kaiju movies. The installment after Destroy All Monsters, Godzilla's Revenge, would be Honda's last time directing the series until its last entry, Terror of Mechagodzilla (1975).
The "friendly" look continued in Godzilla's appearance from 1968 to 1972. Godzilla, by this time, was percieved as the "hero of the world in his movies instead of an indestructable demon from the nuclear age. This Godzilla suit went on a diet by being slimmed down a lot to fit the actor better, and for better mobility while filming Godzilla's battles. Godzilla's neck became much longer and his head more rounded. His pupils were made a little smaller and the width of his mouth became much longer, traveling down to the upper part of his neck. His dorsal fins became smaller in size and, like the head, was also rounded. His two end dorsal fins became much smaller, and appear as mere little bumps traveling down the back of the suit. The tail was also made shorter.
This was the last Godzilla movie that was made with all 4 "Godzilla Fathers." They are: TANAKA (producer), HONDA (director), IFUKUBE (music) and TSUBURAYA (special effects, although he only worked as an advisor).
