And Ghidorah. And Anguirus. And Gaira. And Sanda, ok, but he doesn't count because they were grown from the same cells. And King Seesar. And Mechagodzilla, but he was blown up. And that big spider those guys were talking about in the South Pacific. And the big shrimp. And Kong, too, but he's not a monster REALLY, just a giant anthropoid. And Baragon. And Varan. But that is absolutely it. Fool."

Unless he was, like, a Ph.D. in English or something...

I'm convinced it was a "wrong time, wrong place" kind of issue. Like they were discussing budgets and he started bombarding them with dinosaur diagrams.

When, exactly, did Dr. Mafune discover Titanosaurus? The day & age may have something to do with it.

Well, considering that b&w pic of him looks as though he were in his 30's, and in TOMG he's most certainly older than 60 with all that white hair, he could've discovered him before the events of G'54.

This makes so much since it should be made canon.

But it doesn't say so in the film. So it shouldn't be canon.

But it would explain why they called him crazy when there were some many other monsters in Japan.

Wasn't he banished because of his claim to be able to control Titanosaurus, as well as other sea life?

I've always kinda thought that Mafune's claims of Titanosaurus were made in 1955 right after the events of Godzilla Raids Again. It says in the film that it was 20 years ago and I sorta think that after the Osaka attack, Mafune's claims that he found a dinosaur and that he could control it where seen in poor taste, like he was trying to capitalize on the kaiju attack. I know the Showa continuity is very loose, but I kinda like to think that Mafune presented his discovery at a bad time which led to his banishment.

I agree with Megalon-5 (an inside joke from the Godzilla Fan Club on Facebook. Connor is that you?!). Makes enough sense to me. While the obvious answer is that Toho didn't care about this kind of continuity, this at least makes sense, unlike some of the other nonsensical theories that some people come up with around these parts.

Yes, it's me Goji, I've just joined the forums like a week ago, lol. Anyways, although the Showa era is reeeaally lose at best, I kinda like to think there's several little loose ends that can be connected without making a huge headache. Of course the filmmakers never really intended huge connections, but it's fun in it's own little way.

I believe they say it was 15 years prior to Terror of Mechagodzilla, so 1960. Japan was still in its "What, a monster? That's absurd!" stage then.

Welcome, Connor! :xilien:

And I agree completely. I especially have fun with all of the MonsterLand/Monster Island debates, and whether or not they're in fact the same place.

Thanks Goji! Yeah, the whole Monster Island/Monster Land plot point is a bit silly in my mind, but I still treat them as the same place sorta. They're both tropical islands where the monsters live and they serve the same function. I know in canon they're not the same place, but hey it's like the multiple Godzillas thing. The Showa Godzilla and the 1954 Godzilla are the same character so to speak, but not the same monster.

Isn't ''Monster Island'' just an invention of the little kid from All Monsters Attack?

Monster Island is mentioned in Godzilla's Revenge, but it's also mentioned in Godzilla vs. Gigan and Godzilla vs. Megalon too.

I assume you are the one that made the Godzilla Fan Club Page?
(It was also kind of humorous how fast I got my request to join approved :lol:)

And I like your theories, they make pretty good sense. I like the idea of Mufane being shunned for wanting to take control of something so similar to a monster that was already attacking them
