* DVDCommentary: The DVD release by Classic Media includes one by Steve Ryfle and a few others. It plays over and talks mainly about the american version, but it also talks about the japanese version as well and how the movie in general compares to the original.



* FollowTheLeader: Subverted. Although this film marks the first time two monsters would fight each other in Japanese cinema, this doesn't mean the formula is anything similar to the [[Film/KingKongVsGodzilla film that really kicked off the "monster against monster" boom]].



* RecycledScript: It's basically ''Godzilla 1954'' with another monster added in. However, since Creator/IshiroHonda was not involved in this film (as Honda directed a love story afterwards), Shigeru Koyama wrote the script with no alterations from Motoyoshi Oda. However, without a means to defeat Godzilla without Daisuke Serizawa, the Japanese are screwed.

As noted above, originally distributed by WarnerBros on a double-bill with ''Film/TeenagersFromOuterSpace'' in the states. Guess [[Film/{{Godzilla2014}} what else]] they're distributing...

Added DiffLines:

** What are the odds that an Armored Truck full of convicts would ''just so happen'' to drive into Osaka, ''easily'' overpower their captors, ''quite serendipitously'' pick an Oil Truck as the getaway vehicle, and accidentally crash it into what else? oil tanks at a Power Station, thus causing an enormous explosion that attracts Godzilla back to Osaka? Not good, I can tell you that.

Added DiffLines:

* BehemothBattle: The first of the Godzilla series: Godzilla vs Anguirus in Osaka.


Added DiffLines:

* FamilyUnfriendlyDeath: Rather than Anguirus being killed by Godzilla's atomic ray or escaping, Godzilla brutally bites into his neck until he dies.

Despite poor reception by critics and fans, the film became the third most attended entry in Japan. The film was dubbed as ''Gigantis, the Fire Monster'', which did things like give Godzilla Anguirus' roar in order to convince audiences this wasn't a Godzilla sequel (no, [[ExecutiveMeddling really]]), because Paul Schreibman, who distributed the film through Warner Brothers, believed that a stand alone film would be more successful. The dub was notable for having GeorgeTakei, Marvin Miller, and Keye Luke among the cast, but it wasn't well received and Schreibman himself later lamented his decision. Depending on your point of view, it's either an embarrassment or comedy gold. Known in Japan as ''Gojira no Gyakushū''.

Also known as '''''Gojira no Gyakushu''''' (''Godzilla Strikes Back'') is the first sequel in the ''Franchise/{{Godzilla}}'' franchise and the second entry in the Showa era, ''Godzilla Raids Again'' was made soon after the success of ''Film/{{Gojira}}''. Its notable for introducing the monster Anguirus and the tradition of always having Godzilla fight another foe. The last black-and-white film, it kept with the grim tone of the previous film.

* NoPronunciationGuide: While not an extreme case, all the male dubbers pronounce Tsukioka as "Sue-Kee-Oh-Ka", while the female dubbers pronounce it correctly as "Skyo-Ka".

** Then there's this: Shigeru Kayama = Shigem Kayama, Eiji Tsuburaya = Eliji Tsuburaya, Minoru Chiaki = Mindru Chiaki, and Motoyoshi Oda = Motoyoshi [[TheUnpronounceable QDQ]]. Obviously whoever did transcription from Creator/{{Toho}}'s notes to the WB credits department [[TheyJustDidntCare was having an off day]].
