Films: Legend of Dinosaurs and Monster Birds (1977)
Location: Forest/Lake/Civilized area
Height/Weight: That of a large submarine (plesiosaurus), that of a small plane (rhamphorynchus).
Summary: You would not believe the amount of money the Toei company sunk into this mess. If you knew, then we’re pretty sure you are making sure your investments are worthy right now. Otherwise, you end up like these clowns.
History: Somewhere in the Sea of Trees near Mount Fuji, the egg of an unknown creature was discovered. Turns out, a plesiosaur has survived the extinction, and is picking apart lake-goers every now and then. Even worse, he's not the only one. A giant rhamphorynchus is loose as well. It can only go downhill from there.
Notable Kills: Nothing special.
Final Fate: The two giants eventually meet, and after a clumsy fight, Mount Fuji begins to erupt, taking the two with it as they plummet into a chasm.
Weakness: Anything conventional.
Scariness Factor: 2-Sorry, but these things are stiff, floppy, and altogether rather ugly. Makes you really wonder where all of that money truly went.
Trivia: -The Plesiosaurus was a marine reptile, not a dinosaur. Likewise, the Rhamphorynchus was not a bird, but a pterosaur as big as one's hand.
-This film is notorious for its horribly dissonant soundtrack. One moment, you're seeing the violence these creatures unleash, the next on is you listening to funky beats and/or love songs.
