Many haven't seen Godzilla Singular Point, but luckily there's a fun topic everyone can participate in that include no spoilers: The end credits. In fact you can watch the end credits right here:
Godzilla Singular Point Ending Credits
If that's the first time you've watched them, I guarantee there's no way you caught all the Easter Eggs from the series. You could almost write a book on all of it--I don't even think I've caught them all.
But here's a guide for what I have caught.
The entire end credits sequence centers around Mei as she wakes up on her desk from a night of studying. There's a TV on and a book with Godzilla's silhouette. Not to mention a book just ahead of it. Look familiar?
- Mothra's Symbol
PURPLE CIRCLE: Mothra's symbol is pretty indistinguishable. Inspired by her Judeo-Christian roots from the novella she's based from.The comparison images are from Godzilla: Tokyo SOS (2003) (left) and Godzilla vs. Mothra (1992) (right).
The next frame shows Mei looking up at her television and a close up on her pencil.
- Mei's Pencil
PURPLE CIRCLE: It's a little difficult to tell, but it looks like the Super X, from The Return of Godzilla (1984) is stuck to the top of her pencil.
- Baby Godzilla's Egg
PURPLE CIRCLE: Baby Godzilla's egg from Godzilla vs. MechaGodzilla (1993) is shown on television in a similar way it was found on Adonoa Island. Next to it are two character characters from the film. The egg is also lighting up red as it did in the film:
RED CIRCLE: Professor Hiroshi Omae who led the research group that found the egg in Godzilla vs. MechaGodzilla.
GREEN CIRCLE: Azusa Gojo, the engineer whom Baby Godzilla "adopts" as his surrogate mother since she's the first thing he sees.
As we pan over Mei and get a better look at the television we two familiar characters.
- Biollante, Flower Beast Form
Biollante, as it appears at Lake Ashi in Godzilla vs. Biollante (1989), becomes the highlight of a news bullet reported by none other than...
- Kayoco Anne Patterson
The Japanese-American daughter of a US senator from Shin Godzilla (2016), appears as if she was ripped out of the scene she meets Yaguchi's team. Her shirt and the way her hair falls to one side says it all. But Biollante isn't the only monster she's reporting on.
As we get a close up on Patterson's news show, more visuals reveal a slew of Easter eggs.
- 1968 Showa Anguirus
This one seems pretty obvious. What appears to be the 1968 design of Showa Anguirus burrows out of the ground for an attack.
Though not exactly a new frame, a new visual appears next to Patterson's head which is rich with characters from Godzilla, Mothra, King Ghidorah: Giant Monsters All-Out Attack (2001) and Godzilla vs. Biollante.
- BS Digital Q Crew from Godzilla, Mothra, King Ghidorah
PURPLE CIRCLE: Yuri Tachibana, the main character from Godzilla, Mothra, King Ghidorah: Giant Monsters All-Out Attack (GMK), appears in her same yellow shirt and head injury from the climax of 2001's film.
Yuri's boss, Haruki Kadokura, is seen hanging around with his usual pinstripe suit smoking a cigarette.
Yuri's co-worker, Jun Maruo, is seen recording sound for her report.
- Miki Saegusa
The fan favorite psychic makes an appearance. She looks as she did in her debut film, Godzilla vs. Biollante, with the white jacket, yellow shirt and hair bow.
Though looking more like the Pokemon Gastly than Hedorah, the eyes are unmistakable. Hedorah appears in his flying form here.
The last frame for Patterson's report includes a pretty obvious nod to the franchise.
- Monsterverse Rodan
The last frame pays homage to Rodan's aerial attack from Godzilla: King of the Monsters (2019).
As Mei finally leaves her apartment she runs by a military truck and passes a few more fan favorites.
- Characters from Godzilla x MechaGodzilla
PURPLE CIRCLE: Lt. Akane Yashiro, the main character of Godzilla x MechaGodzilla (2002), is seen speaking with her friends.
GREEN CIRCLE: Those friends being Professor Ohara and his daughter Sara. Note, Sara is holding her favorite plant in both images.
The Kiryu Saga references continue in the next frame as Mei closes up her umbrella.
- Kiryu Squad patch
GREEN CIRCLE: Mei is wearing a Kiryu Squad patch seen on the squad jackets in Godzilla x MechaGodzilla.
As Mei takes a brief stop to her destination she is surrounded by a whole fleet of characters from the Godzilla franchise.
- Godzilla Prediction Network
To the left of the frame is Shinoda's "Godzilla Prediction Network" (GPN) van from Godzilla 2000 (1999).
RED CIRCLE: Yuji Shinoda looks across the yellow tape at the Meganulon.
GREEN CIRCLE: Shinoda's daughter, Io, is there as well. Note she's wearing the same jacket as she does during the climax of Godzilla 2000.
YELLOW CIRCLE: Yuki Ichinose, the Shinoda's news reporter friend, hangs out with them. Her hat is the biggest giveaway.
It's very possible this character is Shiro Miyasaka of the Crisis Control Intelligence from Godzilla 2000. Though I'm not convinced of it since his suit doesn't match up.
- Characters from Godzilla: Final Wars
PURPLE CIRCLE: Earth Defense Force members from Godzilla: Final Wars (2004) stand in the lower left of the frame. Highlighted in purple is biologist Miyuki Otonashi, wearing her trademark red, leather jacket.
YELLOW CIRCLE: Her escort is none other than the main character from Godzilla: Final Wars, Shinichi Ozaki, wearing his M-Force uniform. The uniform is distinguished by its red arm band.
RED CIRCLE: It's possible this could merely be nobody, but given the proximity to the other Godzilla: Final Wars characters it's worth the guess. Could it be the Gotengo's, Capt. Douglas Gordon. He seems burly enough.
- Characters from All Monsters Attack
PURPLE CIRCLE: Standing next to Mei's right, is Ichiro Miki holding hands with his friend Sachiko. Are they an item? Ichiro is wearing his yellow hat and blue jacket. Sachiko is in her yellow shirt--Both straight out of All Monsters Attack (1969).
- Characters from Godzilla vs. Gigan
RED CIRCLE: The cast of characters from Godzilla vs. Gigan (1972) seems to take up the majority of the frame. Main character and manga artist Gengo Odaka is circled in red wearing his long jacket and satchel.
YELLOW CIRCLE: The "enemies of peace" in Godzilla vs. Gigan are also there. The beloved "corn-cob-eating-hippie" Shosaku Takasugi is accompanied Machiko Shima. Both are wearing familiar garb from the film.
TEAL CIRCLE: Even the main villains have invested interest in this frame. Fumio Suda (the shorter one in orange) and Kabota (holding the umbrella) observe the scene next to their henchmen.
PURPLE CIRCLE: Suda and Kabota's henchmen are never far behind it seems. Their black jackets with orange scarfs are lifted straight out of the film.
ORANGE CIRCLE: In case there was any doubt these were the aliens from Nebula M Spacehunter, the shadows of Suda, Kabota and their henchmen hint at their true forms. A similar moment is in Godzilla vs. Gigan.
BLUE CIRCLE: The references to Godzilla vs. Gigan aren't over just yet. Gengo's girlfriend, Tomoko Tomoe, is easy to spot in the shirt Gengo used as inspiration for his "Mamagon" monster design.
GREEN CIRCLE: Behind Tomoko appears to be Machiko's brother, Takeshi Shima, who was held captive by the Nebula M aliens. His suit seems to match the one he wears on screen.
- Dr. Serizawa and the Showa Meganulon
All eyes seem to be on the dead Meganulon. The design is based off its first appearance in Rodan (1956).
YELLOW CIRCLE: Of course one of the most well known characters in the franchise had to make a cameo. Dr. Daisuke Serizawa, from the original Godzilla (1954), observes the Meganulon carcass in his staple lab coat--Eyepatch and all.
- Shin Godzilla characters?
RED CIRCLE: It's very possible they're just nobody, but everyone else seems so specific it's hard to believe that. Is this Rando Yaguchi, Shin Godzilla's (2016) main character circled in red?
PURPLE CIRCLE: And does Hiromi Ogashira make an appearance as well? Her short hair and black suit isn't exactly something that sticks out.
In the next frame we see the cast of Godzilla vs. the Sea Monster (1966) take on a Shockirus from The Return of Godzilla.
- Characters from Godzilla vs. the Sea Monster
TEAL CIRCLE: A famous Kumi Mizuno role, Dayo from Infant Island watches on in shock.
BLUE CIRCLE: Next to Dayo is Yata, the character whose disappearance sets the entire movie in motion. He's noticeable here due to the shirt he was given by the Infant Islanders.
RED CIRCLE: Stabbing Shockirus is the leading man of Godzilla vs. the Sea Monster, Yoshimura. His striped shirt and orange jacket being his go-to attire.
GREEN CIRCLE: The brown hoodie belongs to Nita, a college student caught up in the mayhem.
Shockirus not only shows itself here, but is stabbed in the same exact way as we see it in The Return of Godzilla.
I suspect I've yet to catch everything in this frame. But here we see Godzilla's footprint in the middle of a street. Given the number of toes it seems to be the late Showa Godzilla's impression. Once again characters are referenced from All Monsters Attack.
- Characters from All Monsters Attack
YELLOW CIRCLE: Who can't spot Ichiro Miki in his blue jacket and yellow hat? This time he doesn't care about the yellow tape and wants to get a closer looks at Godzilla's footprint.
GREEN CIRCLE: Ichiro's human tormentor, "Gabara", appears in his red shirt and black hat.
RED CIRCLE: Ichiro's friend, Sachiko must be one of the most obscure minor roles in the Godzilla franchise. Yet here she is, appearing in the end credits twice. The yellow shirt and brown overalls give her away again.
Is it possible Ichiro's neighbor, Shinpei Minami is here as well? He's wearing glasses and it looks like his apron.
- Characters from Godzilla vs. Hedorah
This was an easy one to put together since the entire cast seems to be wearing the same attire in this one shot. Although they are a bit close, making them harder to circle:
1: Miki Fujinomiya, the nightclub dancer, is seen here in her dark coat.
2: Yuki Keuchi is Miki's boyfriend, Ken's uncle and Toshie Yano's brother. His red sports jacket with white sleeves makes him easy to pick out.
3: Toshie Yano, Yuki's older sister who is married to Toru Yano. Her son is the film's main protagonist, Ken.
4: Toru Yano, Ken's father and creator of the giant electrode system that dried up Hedorah. He's another that's easy to pick out of a crowd thanks to the head bandages.
5: Ken Yano, son of Toru and Toshie. He seems to have some kind of "esper" connection with Godzilla. I find it interesting both he and Ichrio are in the same frame, given their love for the Monster King.
Kumonga arrives to say hello to a plethora of characters. This one includes some more obscure additions that are, technically, a part of the Godzilla franchise. But first the monster:
- Showa Kumonga
So why is it specifically the Showa incarnation of Sollgel Island's giant arachnid? Easy! The red eyes. Showa Kumonga's eyes turned red when agitated in Son of Godzilla (1967) and were permanently red in Destroy All Monsters (1969).
- The Zone FamilyFront and center are the Zone Family, survivors of the planet Peaceland from the television series Zone Fighter (1973). They seem to be ready to fight Kumonga.
1: Zone Angel aka, Hotaru Sakimori. Zone Fighter's sister.
2: Zone Fighter aka, Hikaru Sakimori. The eldest of the Zone siblings and the only one who can transform into a giant to fight monsters.
3: Zone Junior aka, Akira Sakimori. Youngest sibling to Zone Fighter and Zone Angel.
- Miss Namikawa
Planet X's femme fatale, and F. Glenn's love interest, from Invasion of Astro Monster (1965) seems to be enjoying the era of smartphones.
- Showa Shobijin (Ghidorah ver.)
The Showa Shobijin are seen on a billboard. Fittingly enough, it's their attire from Ghidorah: The Three Headed Monster (1964), where they agreed to come to Japan for a television appearance.
- Hiromi Ogashira?
I've mentioned Ogashira from Shin Godzilla before; she wouldn't be the first character to appear twice in Singular Point's end credits. Could it be?
The attire here looks extraordinarily familiar. I know I've seen it before, but can't put my finger on it. If anyone has any guesses, let me know.
There's not too much in this frame and it largely speaks for itself. Mothra's flyby is accompanied by the Shobijin, but which ones?
- Heisei MothraI'm fairly positive we're looking at the Heisei Mothra, from Godzilla vs. Mothra and Godzilla vs. SpaceGodzilla (1994). The specific design choices and the lack of fur outlining the base of the wings may be a tip off.
- Kiryu Saga ShobijinThe Shobijin depicted here, however, are from Godzilla: Tokyo SOS. The costume designs and hair line up perfectly with their look in the Kiryu Saga's finale. Although the same costumes and actresses were used for Godzilla: Final Wars, their hair was much shorter in that film.
Here comes another dense frame, and one I have unfortunately struggled to complete. King Caesar does battle with Manda ahead of a fleeing crowd. But who is in the crowd?
- Showa King Caesar & 1963 Showa Manda
Showa King Caesar is easy enough to pin down given the red eyes--A feature his Godzilla: Final Wars incarnation lacked. The Showa Manda is definitely the 1963 design from the film Atragon. The latter 1968 design, from Destroy All Monsters, lacked any horns, while the 2004 design from Godzilla: Final Wars didn't include the nose tendtrils.
- Characters from Godzilla vs. MechaGodzilla
TEAL CIRCLE: Keisuke Shimizu, the male lead of Godzilla vs. MechaGodzilla '74, takes off in his fairly distinguishable tie with a red box in hand. (We'll get to that later.)
YELLOW CIRCLE: Godzilla vs. MechaGodzilla '74's female lead, archealogist Saeko Kanagusuku flees in her third act attire and hat.
RED CIRCLE: Interpol Agent Tamura. Detective Nanbara's partner.
YELLOW CIRCLE: The red box? Notable for carrying the King Caesar statue the Black Hole Planet 3 aliens are after.
GREEN CIRCLE: Nami Ku****mi, the Azumi Princess that sings "Miyarabi's Prayer" to wake up King Caesar.
PURPLE CIRCLE: Tengan Ku****mi, Nami's grandfather later held hostage by the Black Hole Planet 3 aliens.
RED CIRCLE: Black Hole Planet 3 alien. This is the uniform the guards wear in the underground base: Black gloves, shimmering white jumpsuit and a black collar.
PURPLE CIRCLE: Interpol Detective Nanbara in his all-black attire. The trenchcoat and longer hair singles him out.
TEAL CIRCLE: Prof. Miyajima, who is unmistakable in his coat and satchel out of the MechaGodzilla cast.
- Characters from Godzilla '98
YELLOW CIRCLE: Yup, even the 1998 disaster gets references. Nick Tatopoulus, the worm guy himself is spotted wearing the black shirt, red undershirt and hat he does in the movie.
GREEN CIRCLE: News reporter Audrey Timmonds, winner of the 1999 Razzie Award for Worst Actress, takes off in an outfit seen in the movie.
RED CIRCLE: Animal, the camera guy, runs away with his camera in hand, jacket and yellow shirt.
PURPLE CIRCLE: Although I'm having a hard time figuring out if he ever wore a shirt with suspenders, French Agent Phillippe Roache's facial hair (and hairline) seem fairly spot on.
Unfortunately there's plenty of characters I'm unable to identify. It seems like most of these are from Godzilla (1998), which would make sense as to why I'm having a hard time identifying them.
The next frame is (mercifully) not as dense, but has plenty of easy-to-miss Easter eggs--Including one I'm uncertain of.
- Jet Jaguar and 2002 Kiryu
The monsters in the room are pretty obvious. Jet Jaguar from Godzilla vs. Megalon (1973) is shown damaged next to MFS Kiryu. Specifically, this is the 2002 Kiryu design from Godzilla x MechaGodzilla, before the refit in Godzilla: Tokyo SOS.
However, I'm drawing a blank on what Jet Jaguar is holding. It seems fairly significant.
- Characters from The Return of Godzilla
GREEN CIRCLE: The main cast of The Return of Godzilla is pretty identifiable once you realize they're in their third act garb. Hiroshi Okumura is in his white shirt next to...
YELLOW CIRCLE: ...news reporter Goro Maki. Maki is in his brown jacket, which he seemed to wear perpetuity on screen, taking Hiroshi's sister by the shoulders. (Which is something else he does often in The Return of Godzilla.)
TEAL CIRCLE: Naoko Okumura, Hiroshi's sister, is with her boys wearing her late-movie blazer.
RED CIRCLE: Dr. Hayashida, the character who comes up with the technology to lure Godzilla into Mt. Mihara.
TEAL CIRCLE: The beloved "hobo" who raided a dinner during Godzilla's attack shows up.
PURPLE CIRCLE: Initially I thought this was Prime Minister Mitamura, but he never wears a brown suit. Instead, I'm pretty positive this is Hiroshi Koizumi's Dr. Minami who helped Dr. Hayashida concoct the plan to trap Godzilla. He wore this suit while explaining the plan to beuracrats.
A fiery Godzilla blasts his ray while characters look every which-way in the mayhem. There's some pretty big guests in this frame.
- Burning Godzilla?
It could just be the art style's reflection of bolstered flames against Godzilla's skin, but it very well could also be the Heisei Godzilla's final form from Godzilla vs. Destoroyah (1995).
It's also worth pointing out the homage to Godzilla's train attack seen in publicity shots of the original 1954 film. Though it happens in the movie, this photo tends to inspire other merchandise. It wouldn't shock me if it was also the inspiration for the moment above.
- Characters from Godzilla / Godzilla, King of the Monsters
PURPLE CIRCLE: Dr. Yamane from the original Godzilla makes a not so shocking guest appearance with his specific mustache and hat. (Although I think it would've been a nice touch to keep his coat closed with the tie hanging out.)
GREEN CIRCLE: Steve Martin's addition comes off a little more shocking. The character from the 1956, American re-cut of the original film was a news reporter and old friend of Yamane. He appears with his pipe and hat upon reaching Japan.
- UN Secretary Daigo
United Nations Secretary-General Naotaro Daigo is also on the scene. He's pretty easy to place in his white coat/tie and Takarada's full beard.
Finally we get to the last frame and Mei's destination. A shop where she is doing homework includes a full restaurant with some familiar faces. Although I have no doubt there may be other known characters with her, there was only one set that jumped out at me.
- Ogata and Emiko
RED CIRCLE: How fantastic is it that the final homoge next to Mei be the main characters from the original, 1954 masterwork? Hideto Ogata, with his rolled up sleeves sits opposite to the love of his life.
YELLOW CIRCLE: Emiko Yamane sits in the same attire she wore to help the victims of Godzilla's attack. What's even more impressive is the color of her clothes matches colorizations of scenes from the movie:
Not only is Godzilla Singular Point turning out to be a fantastic show in its own right, but the loving tribute to great characters and minutiae from the series is a fantastic detail to add without interfering with its story. I loved playing the game of, "who is who" through this and hope I can nail down the other Easter Eggs I missed.
Damn, That's a lot of easter eggs...
...and you're sure none of these are spoilers?
Nope. The end credits is completely separate of the story in the show.
wow............ thats alot of [email protected]$t
Man, that's a lot to put in the credits, especially if it's not part of the show.
The thing is, many likely don't notice all of this is going on unless you stop to look for it. I only started to realize how much was really in there every time I caught something new.
Incredible. This is one quality thread, as always GMan. Bravo!
I noticed some of these too, but not nearly as many characters.
Did you have to slow down parts. Because it moves pretty fast.
Also, You said the credits are a different storyline. How literally do you want me to take that?
So, uh, exactly how many times did you watch these credits to notice all this...?
Either way, this does give me more hope for the show. At least the people in charge of it are familiar with the older Godzilla movies and seem to know what their doing.
(Unlike the Polygon Anime Trilogy...)
I liked the Anime Trilogy, Not every Goji film is reliant on fighting.
That's fine, I personally did not.
I really didn't like the characters (I thought Haruo was annoying and the others were useless), the changes to Godzilla (Why did they make him a metallic plant that barely moved?), the false advertisement (they marketed City on the Edge of Battle as Godzilla fighting Mechagodzilla, only to have Mechagodzilla turn itself into a city and not fight Godzilla, and don't get me started on the Ghidorah "fight"), and I really didn't like the preachiness of the films (I like Godzilla films with deeper messages, but these ones came off as kind of pretentious).
Overall, I thought it was kind of a mess with a lot wasted potential, that really didn't understand Godzilla that well (The people in charge didn't even watch the older films, they thought they were "above it"). Plus the Directors' arrogant comments (mainly Se****a's) on how the story was "Too Complicated" for older fans to understand (implying that fans who didn't like it were dumb) really annoyed me.
I know it has its fans and it's cool that you liked it, but for me they're some of my least favorite movies in the franchise (which is sad because I had high hopes for them and really wanted to like them).
I agree. But to me the film connected more with the themes of 1954. The arrogance wasn’t really explained until the third film.
I do not agree with the comment made by Se****a, but I didn’t hate it for the “misadvertisement” (not trying to be rude) but I thought it was interesting with these new concepts.
Better Ghidorah fight?
Can you PLEASE do your GVK review now?
I like seeing new concepts in the series (I liked Shin Godzilla, and I'm pretty excited for Singular Point), however I feel like the Anime Trilogy really didn't do much with these new concepts. Turning Godzilla into a plant monster was pointless (the most we got was a throw away line about photosynthesis), and as dumb as the idea of "Mechagodzilla City" is, they could of done something interesting and unique with it, but they didn't. But the thing that bugs me the most is that the idea of the Earth completely changing to conform to Godzilla is a really cool idea, and at first it looks like they're going to explore that idea but then they completely drop it and ingnore the idea completely.
As for the themes, it tries to be like 54', but it doesn't seem to get what made 54's theme work, and it mostly seems to not know what it's doing.
Also it's sad that an MMD animation did a better Godzilla Earth vs Ghidorah fight then Polygon and Toho did...
(Now That's What Anime Ghidorah Should've Been!!!)
Smoke hedorah hype!
It was less about watching it over and over, more about getting screenshots. Even then I've yet to find everything.
It was only recently pointed out to me that Jet Jaguar is holding Megalon's horn and there are three more characters in Shin Godzilla for the Kumonga frame. I'm still trying to figure out everyone in the final frame as well as who all the G'98 cast members are.
I'll try to clarify my comment. The end credits is literally just a big Easter egg hunt for fans. Other than Mei it doesn't have anything to do with, or give away anything about, Singular Point's main story line.
Which is ultimately why I posted it. Had the end credits had anything to do with the story proper, I would've avoided the spoilers.
The great thing about Godzilla Singular Point is that instead of funneling fan service into story stopping moments that might leave casual audiences confused, it usually ends on well earned cliffhangers that justify this end montage of fun Easter eggs. The show gets back to character, ala, earlier Showa films, so the emphasis on them during the credits is telling.
As for the Anime Trilogy, I liked it. I'll agree with SasquaDash only as far as the quality and execution being debatable. However, I enjoyed its themes and I enjoyed the fact that the directors looked at the Godzilla franchise as something different than a monster mash. They're not crowd pleasers, no, but I find them to be more interesting movies than a great deal of the films in the franchise. And I'd rather watch them than some specific titles.
But comparing Singular Point to the Anime trilogy in terms of expectation is very silly. It's a completely different production staff, with a completely different production company, with a completely different style, with a completely different story. It would be like seeing Planet Eater in 2019 and expecting King of the Monsters to be exactly like it, simply because they're both back-to-back Godzilla movies. (Which, by the by, I loved Planet Eater.)
Jet Jaguar is holding a megalon horn!!!!
i just figured it out?
Sorry for bad typing I was just excited
Oh dang it, noticed it too late.
Also the older woman in the background of frame 16 looks like Emiko in Godzilla vs Destroyah
Yup. It's Megalon's horn!
Also the Kumonga frame has:
Also I was just speculating the possibility of the credits being a separate story...
Its fun nonetheless.
Don't look too deeply into the end credits as a storytelling device. Just think of it as a friendly hello from old friends.
you probably already new, but the castle that hedorah is over, is the same on Godzilla and King Kong destroyed in 1963
It's hard for me to tell if it's Atami Castle from King Kong vs. Godzilla or Nagoya Castle, from Mothra vs. Godzilla. I think you're right though. It's the former.
Rewatching movies and noticing something new is always fun.
One of my favorite hidden details in a movie that I didn't notice the first few times was in Godzilla 2014. During the train scene with the Female MUTO, I noticed that she actually mimics the sounds of the radio static and train whistle, which honestly makes the scene somewhat creepier.
Oh, I need to see that
I mean not the movie, but that scene again
G. H. (Gman)
The Origami in the desk in frame one is a shape of the origami in Shin Godzilla. The scene where they find data by folding the paper
