* UnexplainedRecovery: Anguirus' jaw must have healed some time between ''GodzillaVsMechagodzilla'' and this movie. ''Destroy All Monsters'' was made first, of course, so perhaps Toho just forgot about that detail when making the former film. Or the jaw breaking healed and made it come back stronger.

* CharacterizationMarchesOn: Remember that this Godzilla is from ''Film/GodzillaRaidsAgain''? The next several films made him even more... wackier.

* BadExportForYou: The ADV release has no menus or chapter stops. That has thankfully been fixed with Media Blasters giving the film a proper Blu-Ray and DVD release.

* NewscasterCameo: For the umpteenth time in a Toho sci-fi film (Look carefully, his cameos go as far back as the original film), Japanese news reporter Saburo Iketani appeared as himself, even if the film was set in 1999. Maybe it's his son?
