Random Alphabet Quiz 4

It’s been a while since I last did a Quiz Post on my blog, so in need of a quick post I decided to write one. Once again, following the tradition of my Random Alphabet Quiz’s, this one involves 26 questions, with the first question’s answer beginning with A, then the second question’s answer beginning with B, and the third question’s answer beginning C and so on, all the way through the alphabet. Now I also thought I would mix it up a little bit more this time by having an Animal based theme; so not necessarily random, but still, it’s a random idea, and I might throw a dinosaur or two in there just to mix it up a bit. Anyway, basic rules, answer as many as you can, either on paper or in the comments (or on Facebook if you want to share the post……….please), and then check back next week to find out if you were correct.

Godzilla Quiz (Heisei 1984 – 1995)

27 10 2014

Godzilla (Heisei - Toho Co., Ltd.)

Building on from the quiz I did back in May. This time around I thought I would do another little quiz but this time focusing on the Heisei Series of Godzilla films. This time it is going to work differently due to the amount of film’s produced in the Heisei period. As only 7 films were made during the period, what will happen this time is that there will be 15 questions overall. So two questions for each film. So why 15 and not 14, well, just because it was around about the same time but not actually a Heisei film I thought I would include the 1998 film just to round the number of questions up to 15 just like the previous quiz had 15 questions. Anyway, 15 questions in a random order and not every question will have the film title in. I will post the answers up later in the week, until then grab a pen and paper or some other form of note taking to write your answers down on and enjoy.

  1. From which monster’s remains is MechaGodzilla built from in Godzilla vs MechaGodzilla II?
  2. In which film does Miki Saegusa (Megumi Odaka) make her series debut?
  3. True or False: Godzilla fights another monster in The Return of Godzilla (Godzilla 1985)?
  4. In which location is Destoroyah first spotted?
  5. Which two monsters are credited with sending Godzilla Cells into space; creating SpaceGodzilla in the process?
  6. Who directed Godzilla 1998?
  7. Which monster’s remains are found at the bottom of the ocean at the beginning of Godzilla vs King Ghidorah?
  8. What is the name of Mothra’s rival/counterpart in Godzilla vs Mothra?
  9. Which building is used by SpaceGodzilla as a power source/converter?
  10. Which series regular makes a major appearance in Godzilla vs MechaGodzilla II?
  11. What flying vehicle is used to freeze Godzilla?
  12. Which Monster resurfaces out of Mount Fuji after it Erupts?
  13. What plant cells does Dr. Genshiro Shiragami combine with the cells of his Daughter?
  14. True or False: King Ghidorah loses its middle head in Godzilla vs King Ghidorah?
  15. What is the name of the fishing boat in The Return of Godzilla?
