** Ryuhei Kitamura and Shogo Tomiyama wanted the Japanese Godzilla to fight the [[Film/{{Godzilla 1998}} American Godzilla]] to show which was superior, resulting in one of the most brutal examples of this trope in action: Godzilla fights "Zilla" and effortlessly wins in less than 20 seconds. Just to rub it in further, the frustrated [[BigBad X]] then mutters: "I knew that tuna-eating lizard was useless!" (or, in the English dub, "I knew that tuna-head wasn't up to much!"). The name of the scene in question, "Pretender to the Throne", and the music used in the fight,[[note]]Sum 41's ''All To Blame''[[/note]] serve to further highlight Toho's opinion of the American Godzilla. It's very likely deliberate that Zilla is also the only kaiju who is rendered with CG graphics, and faces off against a Godzilla depicted through old-school rubber suit effects.

The 28th Franchise/{{Godzilla}} film and the sixth and final entry in the Millennium era. Due to the previous films not making enough yen, Creator/{{Toho}} decided to temporarily retire Godzilla with a bang. They brought back many Kaiju that haven't been seen in many decades, a music soundtrack different to previous movies, and a more action-oriented story. Unfortunately, it was the least attended film of the Millennium series and reviews were mixed. Some criticized it for not developing the story and characters enough while others lauded it for being a fun celebration of the King of the Monsters.

In an act of desperation, the remaining EDF members and their allies decide to free Godzilla. With their [[MilitaryMashupMachine flying submarine battleship]] [[Film/{{Atragon}} Gotengo]], they guide him across the world, where he makes short work of the monsters; first [[CurbStompBattle trouncing Zilla in Sydney]], than facing Kumonga in New Guinea. He duels Kamacuras in Osaka, Anguirus, Rodan and King Ceasar at Mount Fuji, Ebirah and Hedorah on the outskirts of Tokyo and finally arrives in Tokyo proper. As the mutants take their battle to the Xilians, though, Godzilla faces Monster X in Tokyo, who proves himself to be very powerful indeed, even mutating into a quadrapedal, golden beast known as Monster X-II, or Kaiser Ghidorah...

** A boy throws a [[VideoGame/{{Pokemon}} Squirtle]] action figure into his fireplace while screaming insults at it. This was a clear jab at the both the popularity of the ''Pokemon'' series rivaling Godzilla's (a bit hypocritical, since Toho iis the one who produces and releases the ''Pokemon'' films, and in recent films, has even started using sound effects from the ''Godzilla'' series for Legendary Pokemon), and the ''Franchise/{{Gamera}}'' franchise, the ''Godzilla'' series' biggest rival.

* NeverBringAKnifeToAGunfight: Double [[InvertedTrope Inverted]]. Captain Gordon is cornered by two Xilians who draw laser pistols on him. He then proceeds to put away his katana and raise up his ''[[{{Badass}} fists]].'' In response, they toss their guns.
