* ArtisticLicenseEngineering: When all the destruction from Godzilla's first appearance is looked over, the [=MetLife=] building is seen with a huge hole through it, implying that Godzilla somehow jumped through it. It looks cool, but it's still difficult to believe that it would still be standing after that.

* MisterSeahorse: [[spoiler:Godilla turns out to be a hermaphrodite.]] [[note]]Which in [[RealityIsUnrealistic real life]] is known as [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Parthogenesis parthogenesis]]. Alternately, it could be a case of [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Asexual_reproduction asexual reproduction]], since the only genitals visible on the CG Godzilla model are female.[[/note]]



* YourSizeMayVary: Godzilla is very inconsistent throughout the film; for example, when he first emerges from the sewer, his eye appears to be roughly a metre in diameter, while in a later scene it seems to completely dwarf an entire person.

* MonsterIsAMommy: [[spoiler:About halfway through the film, Nick finds out Godzilla had changed gender and laid eggs. If any one of them get out, they'll start a new disaster. It turns out one DID survive, setting up the plot of WesternAnimation/GodzillaTheSeries]].

** The movie claims that heat-seeking missiles can't track Godzilla because, being a giant iguana, he's cold-blooded. An animal as huge as Godzilla would be warm-blooded simply due to the shear mass of its body making heat take a long time to escape, much like the largest dinosaurs. The process is called Gigantothermy and is already seen in animals like large crocodiles and sharks, all of which are shrimp compared to Godzilla.

** This particular TakeThat backfired on Emmerich, as Roger Ebert said if the filmmakers wanted to get the insulting jab right, they would have had Godzilla eat the Mayor and the aide.
