* OpeningNarration: Parodied. It's revealed the ominous narration was only part of the show Tako was sponsoring and the host laughs before shifting focus to the arctic ocean. Played straight in the U.S. cut, complete with the same fake spinning globe and a stock quote from ''Theatre/{{Hamlet}}''. Averted in the Champion Festival edit, which begins with Tako watching the show on TV instead.

* IndecisiveParody: The film contains numerous, humorous homages to the original ''Godzilla'' and ''King Kong'', but at the same time to plays itself as its own thing.

* GlassCannon GeniusBruiser vs. MightyGlacier DumbMuscle: The matchup between King Kong and Godzilla is framed this way. Kong has greater intelligence, speed and physical strength, while Godzilla has superior durability and can fight from a distance with his tail and atomic breath.

Added DiffLines:

* CantHoldHisLiquor: Kong spends the majority of the film literally passed out drunk or feeling the aftereffects of a severe hangover.

** An example of this is the scene where Kong ascends the Diet Building, Fumiko in tow, which is an obvious reference to the climax of ''King Kong'', but Kong's performance is more in vein of a confused animal instead of a jungle king asserting its dominance.

* ContinuityReboot: On Kong's side, it seems. He lives on a place called Faro Island instead of Skull Island, and the events of the original ''King Kong'' are never brought up- nor those of ''SonOfKong'', for that matter. And it's certainly never mentioned that, if those movies are to be counted, he should be dead.

''King Kong vs. Godzilla'', released in 1962, is notable for many things. First, it was the first movie to feature both KingKong and Godzilla in color and widescreen. Second, and this is really important, [[RuleOfCool it had both King Kong and Godzilla in sharing the screen at the same time.]]
