* ThatRemindsMeOfASong: Dirch Passer's character, Mikkelsen, gets a completely unmotivated and random comedic song number featuring a children's choir in the chorus, in the middle of the film, apparently solely because the producers felt though the film need a bit for musical relief.

'''''Reptilicus''''' is a 1961 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, due to demands from studio executives, resulting in it first getting released in 1962.

film.

A section of a giant reptile's tail is found by a Danish mining company in the frozen grounds in Lapland. The section is flown to the Danish Aquarium in Copenhagen, where it is preserved in a cold room for scientific study. But due to careless mishandling, the room is left open and the section begins to thaw, only for scientists to find that it is starting to regenerate. Eventually having grown back to its full size, the monster goes on an unstoppable rampage from the Danish countryside to the panic-stricken streets of Copenhagen.

* HealingFactor. Ridiculous amounts of it. Not quite as bad as [[DragonBallZ Cell]] but close.

* SameLanguageDub: The film was shot with the cast phonetically speaking their lines in English to make it easier to sell in America, but the cast's thick accents forced it's American distributors to re-dub the entire film.

* [[CoversAlwaysLie Movie Posters Always Lie]]: The poster art for this movie showed a gigantic draconic monster ripping San Francisco apart, destroying the Golden Gate Bridge, and laying waste to US Navy ships. This was more exciting than anything in the actual movie itself.

* BackedByThePentagon: Featured dozens of soldiers and displays of some of the best gear possessed by the Danish army (unusual at the time; most similar movies had to rely on Stock Footage).
