* {{Badass}}: Gamera, although Gyaos is no slouch either.

Added DiffLines:

* ObstructiveBureaucrat: One insistent, TooDumbToLive one keeps wanting Gyaos to be captured and Gamera to be killed despite Gamera showing himself to be humanity's ''ally''.

* {{Atlantis}}: Gamera and Gyaos were both created by an anicent civilzation that inspired the legends of Atlantis and Mu.

* DarkerAndEdgier: Well, compared to the films of the original series, yeah. Although this can describe the entire Kaneko trilogy as a whole as well.

* HotScientist: Nagamine is one ''fine lookin' babe''.
* LastOfTheirKind: Gamera and Gyaos, although Gamera's status is not actually shown to be this until the third movie. In this movie, however, we're simply led to belive that Gamera was just the last option created to deal with the Gyaos after it was too late.

Nagamine.

* WhatCouldPossiblyGoWrong: While it's never specifically said in the movie, the very creation of the Gyaos invokes this. Let's create an organism that will eat anything, ''and'' give it only one pair of chromosomes, so that it can reproduce asexually. Nothing bad could ''possibly'' come from this!

* HeyItsThatGuy: The captain of the plutonium tanker is played by [[Film/SonOfGodzilla Akira Kubo]], and the captain of the other ship is played by [[Film/GameraVsBarugon Kojiro Hongo]]. Not only that, but Shinobu Nakayama, who plays Nagamine, had a small role two years earlier in Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla II, although it was more of an appear-in-one-or-two-scenes-and-be-forgotten-about role.
* HeyItsThatVoice: In the ADV English Dub, Nagamine has the same voice as [[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion Asuka]], and one of her colleagues has the same voice as [[SpikeSpencer Shinji]].

Made in 1995, Gamera: Guardian of the Universe was a huge success, with the film even managing a US theatrical release in 1997. Even Roger Ebert was impressed with the film. Because Gamera had become a joke, he had almost no legacy that needed to be preserved. Because of this, director Shusuke Kaneko was able to revive a franchise in a manner that had not been done since [[Film/TheReturnOfGodzilla 1984]], and would not be done again until [[Film/BatmanBegins 2005]]. The special effects were directed by Shinji Higuchi, who had worked on The Return of Godzilla under Teruyoshi Nakano, and the music was composed by Kow Otani ([[SpellMyNameWithAnS or Koh Otani]]). The film proved to be so popular that it would be followed by an equally successful sequel the next year. However, the most important thing for this film was the fact that Gamera was now capable of rivaling Godzilla, a feat almost undreamed of until now.

As Gyaos lands on the ground, Asagi holds her father's hand, and through her willpower (possibly) the flames around the refinery become to come alive, swirling together to reform Gamera. Gyaos, clearly shocked by this, prepares to unleash one final attack. Gamera, with help from Asagi, unleashes his own final attack. Gyaos is killed by Gamera's fireball, and soon falls back into the rinfery. As the plumes of smoke and flames rise into the air, one last sonic beam cuts through the sky until it finally fades, signaling that the shadow of evil has been defeated...for now. His mission completed, Gamera returns to the sea, with Asagi claiming that will Gamera come again if humanity is ever in need of him. Then the film ends with a kickass song by Bakufu Slump playing over the end credits.

* DidNotDoTheResearch: Meta example, in Roger Ebert's review, where he wonders where the Gyaos eggs from Tower Tower came from, clearly indicating that he did not pay any attention to the part of the movie where Nagamine's colleague shows her the DNA test results that revealed Gyaos as having only one pair of chromosomes, and the conversations held by the characters thereafter.
