* RippedFromTheHeadlines: The United States did in fact conduct an underground nuclear test in 1971 on the Aleutian island of [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amchitka Amchitka]], but, contrary to the opening narration, it was in November, not the "first part" of the year.

* TheSongRemainsTheSame: Foreign dubs usually end with the untranslated version of "Godzilla and Jet Jaguar: Punch! Punch! Punch!"[[note]]the Italian dub just uses the instrumental bed[[/note]]. The song's [[http://godzilla.wikia.com/wiki/Godzilla_and_Jet_Jaguar:_Punch!_Punch!_Punch! Japanese lyrics]] are only ''slightly'' less goofy than the ''Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000'' GagSub.

With the guidance of Jet Jaguar removed, Megalon is reduced to flailing around and stomping on a few redshirts. Upon [[OhCrap learning of Jet Jaguar's recapture]], the Seatopians send out a distress call to [[Film/GodzillaVsGigan the Nebula M aliens]], requesting Gigan's assistance, [[BlatantLies which in no way is an excuse to rely overly on stock footage, no sir.]]

* PoorlyDisguisedPilot / StillBornFranchise: This was going to be a vehicle to cash in on ''Series/{{Ultraman}}''. Needless to say, it didn't work. Which makes Godzilla's [[CanonImmigrant appearance]] in ''Ultraman'' HilariousInHindsight.

* RecursiveTranslation: Robert Dunham, who played the Seatopian Leader, read his lines in English on set, was dubbed into Japanese (by GoroNaya), and then those lines were translated back into English. [[HongKongDub It shows]].

* PlotHole: A minor one: Our heroes suddenly know Megalon's name despite never being informed of it. Averted in the dub, in which Megalon is only referred to as "the monster" by the surface dwellers.

* CompletelyDifferentTitle / MarketBasedTitle: For some reason, the Spanish translators decided to rename Godzilla and Jet Jaguar for this movie, and it was released in Spain as "Film/{{Gorgo}} y Franchise/{{Superman}} se citan en Tokio" [[MakesJustAsMuchSenseInContext ("Gorgo and Superman meet in Tokyo")]]. Ironically, it and the French version haven't seen release on video.
** Germany got "Film/KingKong Dämonen aus dem Weltall", or "King Kong - Demons from Space", in which Jet Jaguar was renamed King Kong to most likely cash in on the previous theatrical success of ''Film/KingKongEscapes'' [[note]](which bared the subtitle "Frankenstein's Son" to cash in on the previous success of ''Film/FrankensteinConquersTheWorld...''[[/note]]. Of course, Masato Shimon's song remains intact despite this.
** Italy rechristened it as "Ai Confini Della Realtà", which happens to be the Italian title for ''Franchise/TheTwilightZone''. France's "lost" dubbed version also changed the title, to ''Godzilla 1980''.

** The footage of the "nuclear test" at the beginning is from the end of ''Film/EbirahHorrorOfTheDeep''.
