* PyrrhicVictory: In her second form, Biollante was able to do massive amounts of damage to Godzilla and [[spoiler: the fight even ended with Godzilla finally collapsing from exhaustion...]] but not before [[spoiler: Godzilla struck her with a fatal blast that made Biollante break apart into spores.]]

* EyeBeam: For a long time, movie posters and video games had a tendency to give him this despite him not having one in his first two appearances, which most games based him on. Many people believed [[GodNeverSaidThat it was due to budget reasons as to why it was never shown]]. It was later reveal however by [[WordOfGod Teruyoshi Nakano]] that the REAL reason it was never shown was because [[FlipFlopOfGod he didn't believe it fit with the character, so neither film demonstrated this ability for said reason]]. Ultimately, the ability was added and retooled in ''Final Wars''.

* DragonsAreDemonic: Destroyah's final form looks like a cross between a dragon and the devil itself. He is treated as the most vile kaiju to face Godzilla since he [[spoiler:killed his son]].

** Then again, we're talking about a creature who possibly survived having his throat ripped out and being burned to a crisp by ''Godzilla'' (and shows no visible scars from any of that to boot), so the broken-jaw becomes rather moot.

In 2004, director Ryuhei Kitamura and producer Shogo Tomiyama wanted to pit the American Godzilla against the Japanese Godzilla to establish which was superior. Since Toho had to share film rights with Tristar but owned the American Godzilla's likeness,[[note]]And thus the 1998 film's title and the titular creature remain trademarked as "Godzilla".[[/note]] they created their own version, dubbed Zilla, which appeared as a mutant monster of the alien invaders in ''Final Wars'', rampaging through Sydney before being effortlessly killed by Godzilla.

Zilla - specified as being the ''Final Wars'' incarnation but having the appearance of the 1998 Godzilla - appeared in ''ComicBook/GodzillaRulersOfEarth'', one of the IDW Godzilla comics, and fights Godzilla. This time, though, Zilla not only lasts more than a few seconds, but he ''survives'' the fight itself (albeit from [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere getting the hell out of Dodge when Godzilla was distracted]]).

* AlternateSelf: Emmerich's, Devlin's, and Toho's stance is that the 1998 film is set in its own continuity unrelated to any of the other films, aside from a brief TakeThat in ''GMK''. Ergo, the version of the monster that appeared in ''Final Wars'' is ''not'' the same monster that was gunned down on the Brooklyn Bridge, but an seperate incarnation of the character.

* BreathWeapon: The Godzilla in the 1998 movie sent cars flying and set off a massive explosion [[MakeMeWannaShout by screeching]], and the Zilla in ''Final Wars'' had an "acid fire breath" but was only shown using it once from off-screen. In ''Godzilla: The Series'', Cyber-Zilla gained a blue version of his son's atomic breath thanks to the aliens' tampering.

* FemaleMonsterSurprise: Nick is ''very'' surprised when a pregnancy test reveals the giant radioactive lizard ransacking NYC is about to lay eggs. It's then subverted by everyone continuing to call Zilla a "very unusual he" due to it being asexually reproducing.

* ItCanThink: Movie!Zilla is somewhat cunning, as far as an animal goes, but his only surviving offspring takes it UpToEleven. The ''Final Wars'' incarnation is incredibly animalistic; in contrast the ''Rulers Of Earth'' version is as smart as his cartoon son, and able to effectively strategize in a battle with Godzilla.

* MisterSeahorse: Is consistently referred to as a male, even after it lays a few hundred eggs.
* MonsterIsAMommy: Lays over 200 eggs, which hatch into ravenous baby Zillas. [[SequelHook One happens to survive the end of the movie.]]

* NotZilla: Was originally meant to be a new version of Godzilla but eventually became this. Understandably many fans and critics alike feel this way about Tri-Star's 1998 "remake". Although he is more of an Expy of obscure Godzilla monster Gorosaurus. He has a more traditionally theropod design, an affinity for burrowing (Originally a trademark of Baragon but given to Gorosaurus for ''Destroy All Monsters''), all he lacks is the jump kick.
* OffModel: His appearance in ''Final Wars'' when compared to his appearance in ''Godzilla'' and the ''Rulers of Earth'' comic.

* CompositeCharacter: As his film was originally supposed to have Frankenstein's Monster, he gains buffs from electricity (which, one would assume, would've buffed the former back in his version).
