Directed by Jun Fukuda

Original Title:
ゴジラ対メガロ
© 1973 TOHO

Story

Inventor Goro, his friend Hiroshi, and Goro’s little brother Rokuro have invented a humanoid robot they call Jet-Jaguar. But agents from an underground civilization called Seatopia has been rocked by ecological disasters since mankind began nuclear testing. Now this mysterious lost civilization wants to take revenge on the surface world.
The Seatopians steal Jet-Jaguar and their leader prays to the demon god Megalon to awaken and destroy mankind. With Jet-Jaguar as a guide, Megalon wrecks Tokyo.
Goro uses his backup remote control unit to regain control of his invention. He then sends Jet-Jaguar to bring Godzilla to defeat Megalon.
The Seatopians, realizing they have lost control of Jet-Jaguar, contact the insect aliens from Nebula M Spacehunter (last seen in Godzilla vs. Gigan). The intelligent cockroaches send Gigan to help Megalon.
Godzilla seems over-matched―until Jet-Jaguar reveals a previously unknown power. The robot grows to the size of Godzilla and joins the battle. Together, Godzilla and Jet-Jaguar defeat Gigan and Megalon.
