** 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 aid.

* MisguidedMissile: When the Navy tries to take out Godzilla with subs, Godzilla dodges two of their torpedoes then swims under the ''Anchorage'', causing the torpedoes to sink it.

* MyCountryRightOrWrong: Roache says he's a patriot, despite the horrible things it has done in the past.
** There are some pretty damn RoseTintedGlasses at play here, though: the US did at least as much nuclear testing as the French in Polynesia!

* FailedASpotCheck: One of the army guys overlooks Godzilla in the tunnels because he failed to recognize that the "rocks" in front of him were an eyelid. That's excusable, but there is no justification for him missing the rumbling when Godzilla moves away while he's barely a couple dozen feets away.



* MissedHimByThatMuch: The Jerkass news anchor twice misses seeing Godzilla walk past the station windows because he's too busy complaining on the phone that he doesn't have a good story to cover. One of the army guys overlooks Godzilla in the tunnels because he failed to recognize that the "rocks" in front of him were an eyelid; it opens right behind him and moves after he's turned away.

* SteelEarDrums: There's one moment where Godzilla ends up almost nose to nose with Nick, only a couple of feet between them, and Godzilla roars right in Nick's face. With a beast that size, you'd think that the least that would happen would be Nick's eardrums rupturing, but he doesn't even stop to cover his ears.

**MythologyGag: In the 1954 original, Godzilla absolutely hates bright lights as they remind him of the flash of the nuclear bombs going off.

* Understatement: "Negative impact" indeed; It's only the freaking ''Chrysler Building''.

* UnexplainedRecovery: It's never really touched upon how Godzilla managed to stay hidden after getting shot in the Hudson River, but maybe the military is really just that bad at looking for a 250ft long mutant lizard.

* {{Wormsign}}: When Godzilla arrives from the ocean, the pier splits most satisfyingly.

* 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 long, while in a later scene it seems to dwarf an entire person.

** ''Theropoda Allosaurus'' is just unbelievable. The evidence gathered has clearly indicated an animal many magnitudes larger than any ''Allosaurus'', which maxed out at around 30 feet in length. What's more, specifying "Allosaurus" among other similarly-sized therapods is ridiculous, because there's no certain way to distinguish between different therapods within the same size range based on footprint alone. The idea that any real paleontologist would say or suggest such a thing is complete nonsense.

* ArtisticLicensePhysics: Leaving aside the usual issues with giant monsters and the SquareCubeLaw, even if Godzilla was cold blooded, its internal heat should be more than enough for heat seeking missiles to track it.
