* PrecisionFStrike: A mild one, but in a mid-70s' Godzilla movie it really stands out. The alien leader spouts this gem before unveiling Mechagodzilla in his true form:
"Damn Godzilla! You're mistaken if you think your powers are a match for Mechagodzilla!"

* BeingWatched: There are two instances of this.
**In Act I, a man is seen watching another man who is watching the professor. The same man who was being watched (and was watching the professor) reappears later in the movie on a boat because [[spoiler:he's an alien trying to prevent King Caeser from being summoned.]]
**When Godzilla is fighting Godzilla, the aliens are watching the fight.

Both of the prophecies above are put to the test in Godzilla's 20th anniversary outing, ''Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla'' (''Gojira Tai Mekagojira'', [[NamesTheSame not to be confused with]] [[Film/GodzillaVsMechagodzillaII the Heisei]] [[Film/GodzillaAgainstMechagodzilla and Millenium]] films). The monster that will try to save the people of Okinawa is King Shisa, the ancient guardian of the Azumi Royal Family. The monster that will destroy the world... is at first believed to be Godzilla, but after Godzilla's ally Anguirus is brutally attacked and wounded by the beast, people start to notice that something is off. When Godzilla attacks a refinery, another Godzilla appears. A vicious battle soon follows, where the first Godzilla soon sheds its skin in a fiery display to reveal a mechanical weapon of destruction: Mechagodzilla. The resulting battle ends in a draw, but questions remain. Who built Mechagodzilla, and why?

However, there is still the issue of the Azumi prophecy, and with it, King Shisa. If King Shisa can be awakened, then other monsters may soon follow, and so the Simians attempt to gain control of a precious statue that is instrumental to the legend to prevent the divine monster's awakening. Deciding to launch a two-pronged plan, the Simians capture an Earth scientist who is familiar with the technology they used to create Mechagodzilla, to speed up repairs, and send their own agents out to capture that damn statue. What follows are gunfights, interpol agents with some bad hair-dos, and archaeologists fighting in a race against time to awaken King Shisa and stop the Simians. Fortunately, Godzilla is still alive, but will he be able to rejoin the fray before it's too late?

* Foreshadowing: Mechagodzilla might be well disguised as Godzilla when he first appears, but does not copy Godzilla's iconic roar, providing the first clue that something is off.
