* KarmaHoudini: Interestingly, Mothra is actually one. She literally cause so much damage and killed thousands of people in her quest to save the Shobijin. Yet, the humans are perfectly content with letting her go free without her or the Shobijin answer for what has happened.

* OvershadowedByAwesome: Meta Example- While this film is beloved by many Godzilla and Kaiju fans, it's main problem is that it's overshadowed by the more famous ''Film/MothraVsGodzilla'' (1964).

* MacabreMothMotif: Inverted, Mothra is a symbol of peace and hope. Battra, the evil moth on the other hand...

* EasilyForgiven- Despite causing so much destruction and killing many people, the humans seem to be quite happy with letting her go back home with her Shobijin. Heck they even waive goodbye to her like a friend.

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: Unlike later incarnations, this Mothra appears much more ruthless. All she cares about is fairy companions and nothing else. She is perfectly fine with killing many people just to get them back. For example, she sinks an ocean liner maned Orion Maru, despite it only being in the way.

* {{Expy}}: Infant Island is the closest Toho ever got to their own [[Film/KingKong Skull Island]]. The story itself is closer to ''Film/KingKong1933'' than any other Toho Kaiju film -- including, interestingly, ''Film/KingKongvsGodzilla''.

* BigApplesauce: New Kirk City's an obvious stand-in for it.

* LighterAndSofter: This is perhaps Ishiro Honda's first kaiju film that isn't dark by any means. However the villagers being gunned down, not so much. Hoewever, it does end in a lighter note.

* CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass: Zenichiro manages to defeat four of Nelson's mooks ''by himself.'' Later, when Mothra destroys a dam, a couple trying to escape the flood waters inadvertently leave their baby on a bridge that's about to be destroyed. Zenichiro, without a moment's hesitation, runs out onto the bridge, grabs the baby, and brings the child to safety just in time.
