* BadassNormal: Rodan is just a plain big pterosaur, but can go toe to toe with Godzilla, and pull awesome move after awesome move on the King of Terror himself.
** Then again, heís a giant pterosaur capable of withstanding all known military weapons and direct hits from Godzilla and King Ghidorahís respective breath weapons. The only thing that makes him significantly weaker than Godzilla is Rodanís inability to breathe nuclear fire, but even then he compensates for that by being able to fly.

The fifth film in the ''Franchise/{{Godzilla}}'' franchise, ''"Ghidorah the Three Headed Monster"'' marked a few changes in the series. It was the first to deviate from the tried and true "giant irradiated mutants from a LostWorld trample Tokyo" plot of the previous four films by introducing elements of the Space Operas and UFO culture that was prevalent in the 50's and 60's. This experiment would be expanded upon in later films. Called ''San Daikaijū: Chikyū Saidai no Kessen'' in Japan.

More importantly, ''"Ghidorah the Three Headed Monster"'' marked a change in Godzilla as a character, one that was arguably necessary for the franchise to continue. After having played the villain for four movies straight, Godzilla switches sides in the third act of this film to fight an even worse monster than himself: the Planet Destroying King Ghidorah. This change in Godzilla's role would be slowly built upon in the following movies, and set the groundwork for the change in tone that would occur between the first and later halves of the Showa Godzilla series.

In the Japanese version of the scene, Rodan and Godzilla come close to ''agreeing'' with Mothra at that point instead.

* FreudianExcuse: This film gives Godzilla one; stating that he doesn't like humans because humans attack him. This may be justified as Godzilla tends to mind his own business since ''Film/GodzillaRaidsAgain'' and humans usually responds by attacking him, pissing him off to no end. Rodan agrees with him as well.
