* 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.

Had a short-lived adaptation from Creator/CharltonComics, but because they bought the film rights from the American distributor and not the Danish creators, they had to drop the title after issue 2. The story continued, however as ''Reptisaurus''.

Long a considered a cult classic by kaiju fans and especially in its home country. The film would gain notoriety again in 2017 when it was featured in the first episode of Website/{{Netflix}}'s revival of the popular movie-riffing series ''Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000''. For tropes in that episode, [[Recap/MysteryScienceTheater3000S11E01Reptilicus see here]].

Added DiffLines:

* ConvectionSchmonvection: The opposite of the usual version of the trope. Leaving the door to a walk-in freezer set to twenty below freezing ajar overnight does not noticeably cool the room next to it, but does allow the contents of the freezer to completely thaw in a matter of hours. For that matter, storing Reptilicus' tail in there should have frozen it solid, but a scientist is able to scrape off some tissue samples to examine with a scalpel rather than needing a hammer and chisel.
