Favorite Fictional Material in a Toho Film

Post by Masterofsome01 »

In it's long history of sci-fi films Toho has come up with several made up substances and I'd like to know what is the one that has stuck with you the most and why? Is it because of it's name, creation or even the impact it had on the story it was in?

Personally my favorite is Space Titanium; the metal used to build the first Mechagodzilla, partly for the fact I'll never get over how generic and lackluster that name sounds

I thought this meant like fictional works in the Godzilla franchise, like Gengo Kotaka's manga in Godzilla vs. Gigan....

The ANEB. It was one of the few effective weapons against Godzilla, even if it proved temporary.
Are you saying that I put an abnormal brain into a 7 1/2 foot long, 54 inch wide....Gorilla! Is that what you're telling me?

Nanometal. Pretty damn memorable, I think.

Micro-Oxygen for sure. Space Titanium is pretty iconic, though.

Isn't Space Titanium just generic super-alloy #1029348320192834902183749?
