Stuff like “Ghidrah,” “Angilas,” and “Hedrah”came about because those used to be the spellings Toho preferred, but over time they’ve gotten stricter about using spellings closer to the actual Japanese names, so you end up with “Ghidorah,” “Anguirus,” and “Hedoarh.” Hope that clears things up a little!

Yeah, I remember growing up calling “Ghidorah”, “Ghidrah” as well. I never understood why suddenly Toho changed the way everything was spelled and pronounced.

I think the book is counting the tentacles that are folded in the front of the body (they are hard to see). You’re thinking “one” tentacle on each side with three finger-like tentacles per arm. “Two on each side” means that each side has two tentacle arms, making it four arm-tentacles altogether.
I can’t tell if there are finger-tentacles on the forward two arms, however.

Oops, I think I mistook what you were saying in the text. I thought you meant six tentacle-fingers all together, but I guess you meant six on each side given how James put it.
Tentacle math is hard!

Then again… James would still be wrong since he said three on each side, adding up to six. But there are really twelve tentacle-fingers since each side has six.
My head hurts!

Hey James! I remember how you made a music video for Black Sabbath using lots of footage from your home movies! Well check out this video I made for The Ernies Here and Now song!

The reason it’s Ghidorah or Ghidrah, is because in Japanese, you can’t have 2 consecutive consonants (except for the “n”), thus, they can’t pronounce “Ghidrah”, they instead say “Gidora” (that’s the actual romanization).
The actual name would be Ghidrah, but if you watch the film in Japanese, you’ll see they pronounce the name like Ghidorah, and eventually that’s the name that stuck.
Actually in Castlevania something similar happens. In Japan, it’s not the Belmont, but rather the Belmondo, or, in the literal romanization, Berumondo (as in Japanese there is no “L”)
