* DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment: "We'll have to shoot it point blank, from very close range!" Ah, yeah, that's what "point blank" means, dude.

* DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment: "We'll have to shoot it point blank, from very close range!" Ah, yeah, that's what "point blank" means, dude. To be fair, Grayson is explaining this to a group including scientists, who might not necessarily know what "point blank" means.

* TheEndOrIsIt: Yay! The army [[spoiler: made Reptilicus swallow a poison missile, and now it's dead]]! Denmark can now go back to normal life! [[spoiler: Except that the piece of Reptilicus severed by a depth charge is now twitching...]]

* CoversAlwaysLie: The poster art for the U.S. version showed a gigantic draconic monster ripping San Francisco apart, destroying the Golden Gate Bridge, and laying waste to US Navy ships. The Danish poster art was comparatively much more honest.

* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: General Grayson is introduced as an unpleasant sourpuss, and his friendliness level never really makes it past "brusque" (though he does hit it off with Svend fairly well); at heart, however, he's a good man trying his best to handle a terrible situation.

'''''Reptilicus''''' is a 1961 [[UsefulNotes/{{Denmark}} Danish]] {{Kaiju}} movie, in the vein of ''Franchise/{{Godzilla}}''. It is notable for being the first and only Danish Kaiju film. A Danish-American co-production, an English-speaking version was filmed simultaneously with the Danish one, which led to the frequent misunderstanding that the two versions are the same except for language, but in practice there are quite a few differences between the two versions, as the two projects each had their own separate director attached and a couple of differences in cast. Notably, the American version also went through a somewhat heavier post-production and editing process than its Danish counterpart, [[ExecutiveMeddling due to demands from studio executives]], resulting in it first getting released in 1962.

** And the American general is the one who delivers the death-blow with the rocket launcher. In real life, if a general is firing a rocket launcher at the enemy, something has gone very, very wrong.

* FromASingleCell: The whole of Reptilicus regenerates from its tail. This is also the reason why the scientists claim that the Army can't just blow Reptilicus up - if they fail to police up all of the pieces, in a few months they'll just have several more of them running around. [[spoiler:And TheStinger implies that this does in fact happen...]]

* GodzillaThreshold: Averted. The Danish army refuses to break out its' more powerful ordinance while Reptilicus is in urban areas: First to avoid civilian casualties, and later out of fear that blowing Reptilicus up will cause pieces of it to scatter and eventually form more monsters.

* {{Novelization}}: Written by Dean Owen, who also did the novelization for ''{{Film/Konga}}''. Owen adds in numerous sex scenes between the characters to spice things up.

** One excuse's the soldiers couldn't burn Reptilicus up close as it'd slime 'em to death.
