Manda premiered in the Toho non-Godzilla film Atrogon (1963). In the film, Manda was a sea serphent who was the god and protector of the undersea kingdom of Mu. His first Godzilla movie appearance was Destroy All Monsters. He, along with Godzilla, Rodan, and Mothra, attack and destroy most of Tokyo. Manda is marching with the other monsters for the final battle with the Kilaaks, but he doesn't participate in the brawl with King Ghidorah. A clip of Manda is shown in Godzilla's Revenge, while Ichiro, the little boy who is the main character of the film, observes Monster Island from the treetops. In Terror of Mechagodzilla, Manda is shown along with Rodan, King Ghidorah, and Godzilla as Katsura recalls the destructive power of previous monsters.
