** 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 (of course {{Creator/Toho}} specified that Godzilla wasn't allowed to eat people).

** This becomes inverted and HilariousInHindsight in the Japanese Godzilla film ''GodzillaMothraAndKingGhidorahGiantMonstersAllOutAttack''. There's a scene where a group of American reporters claim they saw Godzilla in New York in 1998. The Japanese correct them, stating that that monster was called 'Zilla'. (An alternate name for G '98, introduced in ''[=GMK=]'' after Toho got the rights to TriStar's monster.)

***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.

* HamAndCheese: Jean Reno refuses to [[TookTheBadFilmSeriously take this cheeseburger seriously]]. He hams it up shamelessly, sneering down his Gallic schnoz at everything American (despite being ''one of the good guys''), and the film is much better for it.

** Apaches also don't have a pair of guns bracketing the cockpit; they have a single 30mm cannon in a chin mount beneath the front of the fuselage. Ironically, attempts WERE made to increase the Apache's air to air capabilities by making it able to launch the Sidewinder, complete with test firings. These were ceased in favor of a modified Stinger missile design.

* [[PoliceAreUseless Militaries Are Useless]]: The only time the military accomplishes anything is [[spoiler: with the 3 F-18s that both destroy Madison Square Gardens and kill Godzilla]]. Every other time, they [[EpicFail fail miserably]] and either damage other buildings or hit other military units.
