The Showa series (昭和シリーズ?, Shōwa shirīzu) is a term used to identify the years between 1930 and 1979.

The first Godzilla film was to begin the Showa era of the kaiju industry, and is the usual kaiju to be affiliated with this era. During the beginning of this era, Godzilla was mainly antagonistic in nature, taking on the likes of Anguirus and Mothra. By the time of Ghidorah, the Three-Headed Monster, Godzilla adopted what would soon become his most famous image: a heroic monster, battling terrible villains with other monsters by his side.
