** The movie claims that heat-seeking missiles can't track Godzilla because, being a giant iguana, he's cold-blooded. An animal as massive as Godzilla would be warm-blooded simply due to the shear size of its body, 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 aid.

* 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.
