  • It had to happen. Ultraman vs. Godzilla.

    9.4
    As an episode of Ultraman, this one is pretty average. However, it's Ultraman's battle with Keyla/Jirass that makes this so memorable. First their do giant monster version of skeet shooting to compare their shooting prowess, then Ultraman rips off the monster's frill and fights him like a matador! I only wish I could come up with stuff that out there.

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (2)

    • In a rare moment for the series, Ultraman, after slaying the monster Jirass, places it's torn-off neck frill back upon its body as a gesture of respect and offers a brief moment of silence before flying away. This sign of respect was never shown with any other monster in the series. This was due to Bin Furuya, the suit actor for Ultraman, being a former apprentice of Haruo Nakajima, the original suit actor for Godzilla (and who played Jirass in this episode).

    • This is the only episode where we hear Ultraman laugh.

  • NOTES (2)

    • Featured monster: Frillnecked Dinosaur Jirass (Erimaki Kyouryuu Jiraasu)

    • A favorite episode among fans, the episode's monster Jirass is a Godzilla suit (technically the head of the Daisensou-Goji from Monster Zero with the body of the Mosu-Goji from Godzilla Vs. the Thing), painted and fitted with a frill-like collar around his neck. When Ultraman tears off the collar during the climactic fight, he looks exactly like Godzilla (albeit the minor paint job)! Haruo Nakajima, the suit actor for Godzilla, of course, plays Jirass.
