** This particular TakeThat backfired on Emmerich, as Gene Siskel said if the filmmakers wanted to get the insulting jab ''right,'' they would have had Godzilla eat the Mayor and the aide (though to be fair, {{Creator/Toho}} specified that Godzilla wasn't allowed to eat people) or squash them.

* FromBadToWorse: For the crew of the USS Anchorage, certainly. Godzilla swims straight at them, using his dorsal spines to rip open the sub's hull, simultaneously crippling and leaving the sub sinking in the middle of the Hudson River. Seconds later, the torpedoes the sub fired at Godzilla smash into its side, destroying it and killing everyone aboard.


Added DiffLines:

** During the battle in the Hudson River, while being attacked by three U.S. Navy submarines, Godzilla swims straight at one of the subs, using the dorsal spines on his back to rip open the sub's hull, leaving it dead in the water and helpless as the torpedoes the Navy fired at him smash into the crippled sub, destroying it.


Added DiffLines:

** During the Hudson River battle, the crew of the submarine USS Anchorage experience this when they realise Godzilla is swimming straight at them with the torpedoes ''they'' fired at him close behind.

* TruthInTelevision: Although it wasn't really known at the time, some lizards actually ''are'' capable of asexual reproduction via a process called parthenogenesis.

* 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.

** There is no way a human pregnancy test would work on a lizard, much less a giant radioactive lizard, as Human (and mammal) pregnancy tests are searching for the presence of Chorionic Gonadotrophin hormone, which is only produced in placental animals, as the 'chorion' is another word for the placenta. Reptiles are not placental animals, and do not produce CG. Thus, the test wouldn't work.

* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: In a meta sense. In the track recorded specifically for the movie, Music/RageAgainstTheMachine managed to sneak in the line ''criticizing'' it.
-->Godzilla, pure motherfucking filler, get your eyes off the real killer.

** There is no way a human pregnancy test would work on a lizard, much less a giant radioactive lizard.
*** And here's why: Human (and mammal) pregnancy tests are searching for the presence of Chorionic Gonadotrophin hormone (CG). CG is only produced in placental animals, as the 'chorion' is another word for the placenta. Reptiles are not placental animals, and do not produce CG. Thus, the test wouldn't work.
