* DubNameChange: Organizer G-1 was renamed as Regenerator G-1 in the American version, because Regenerator makes a lot more sense in the context that was being used.

* ComicBookMoviesDontUseCodenames: In some of the early scenes in the Toho cut, Godzilla is not directly mentioned by name by the characters, who resort to vague "it" pronouns. Shinoda finally drops the name about 12 minutes in.
** Averted completely in the Mike Schlesinger script, which purposefully inserts "Godzilla" into the dialogue as many times as possible. An extra "Godzilla Prediction Network Mobile Unit" optical is even added to the first shot of Shinoda and Yuki inside the GPN car.

* MythologyGag: Miyasaka at one point realizes his tie is outside his shirt and promptly readjusts it, a direct reference to a scene in the [[Film/Godzilla1954 first film]] where Dr. Yamane does the same.

* GenreDeconstruction: The film heavily deconstructs the "G-Force" concept that plagued the later half of the Heisei series, by dividing it into two smaller entities more grounded in reality: A small scale civilian observation network run out of a brewery by a father and daughter, and a larger scale operation with government funding and more advanced equipment. Neither is equipped to actually combat Godzilla. Katagiri just uses his status as Deputy Chief Cabinet Secretary and connections to get the Self-Defense Force involved when necessary. Far less lofty than enormous international coalitions capable of building gigantic, impractical fighting machines.

* LullDestruction: Acknowledged by Mike Schlesinger, Darenn Pascal and Mike Mahoney in their commentary track. The U.S. version adds a lot of additional music to scenes that went unscored originally, and is general noisier sound design-wise. The sound design is completely different from the Toho cut, with even minor foley such as footsteps and keyboard typing redone.
