* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: Whatever happened to that patrol helicopter that Godzilla surfaced in front of in Tokyo Bay? In the Manga adaptation it's destroyed by Godzilla's tail, but in the film it just, well, vanishes. Also, the Bum, who is last seen fainting as Godzilla approaches, is not seen again.

again. (Although the ''1985'' version edits the scene to imply he was stepped on, to solve this.)

The sixteenth ''Franchise/{{Godzilla}}'' film, also known as just ''[[NamesTheSame Godzilla]]'' or ''Godzilla 1985'', and first after a nearly decade long break. It is a direct sequel to the original ''[[Film/Godzilla1954 Godzilla]]'' (even sharing the title in Japan) and ignores all other films. Godzilla returns after a thirty years absence and in the midst of high UsefulNotes/ColdWar tensions between the U.S.A. and Soviets. It is the first Godzilla film to feature Kenpachiro Satsuma in the role of Godzilla, and it would be the last movie to ''not'' feature any Ifukube music until 2002's ''[[Film/GodzillaAgainstMechagodzilla Godzilla X Mechagodzilla]]'', and is still currently the last movie to not feature Godzilla ''fighting'' another monster (outside of the first American remake), although another one does appear, but it is a small, man-sized monster, and it does not interact with Godzilla at all onscreen.

* CuttingOffTheBranches: Non-video game version. The American version places the events of ''Film/GodzillaKingOfTheMonsters'' in 1956, while Japanese continuity of the Heisei films likewise places the events of the first film in 1954 instead.

* StockFootage: It's easy to miss prior to repeated viewings, but the movie lifts some stock footage from ''Submersion of Japan'' and ''Prophecies of Nostradamus''. For continuity purposes, scenes from the [[Film/GodzillaKingOfTheMonsters original film]] are used for the American version.

Was released theatrically in the United States the following year in the heavily altered form of ''Godzilla 1985'', which like ''Film/GodzillaKingOfTheMonsters'' before it, compressed the plot and included new scenes once again featuring Raymond Burr as Steve-*ahem*, Mr. Martin, filmed by a low budget American unit, though their integration and usefulness leans towards the often panned Americanizations of ''Half Human'', ''Film/KingKongVsGodzilla'' and ''Tidal Wave'' (also distributed by New World).

* DeathByIrony: See ShoutOut below. In the first film, it is the engineer's failure to stop the train which results in an accident, while here, it would've been wiser to let the bullet train just keep on going, as Godzilla decides to have a little fun with a car before tossing it aside.

* MythologyGag: To ''[[Film/{{Gojira}} Godzilla (1954)]]''. The opening scene depicts a fishing boat in a middle of a disaster (but in a different case). Goro Maki wants the existence of Godzilla's to be known publicly, despite objections from the government, and despite Godzilla's existence is known, people are still killed anyway when the monster makes his rampage in Tokyo. And Godzilla attacks a train, although in the original movie, the train attack was during his first raid on the mainland, while here it's during his second raid.

And Godzilla attacks a train, although in the original movie, the train attack was during his first raid on the mainland, while here it's during his second raid.
** The scene where Hayashida shows Okumura photographs of Godzilla's original attack in the hospital is reminiscent of a scene in ''{{Film/Rodan}}'' where Shigeru is shown photos of the Meganulon to jog his amnesiac memory. Okumura has Shigeru's same horrified expression.

*** If you watched the Japanese original version before the New World Dub, Kashirin becomes this. In the original film, he's a heroic character who dies trying to stop the KillSat from activating. In the New World Dub, he's just a heartless Russian who's way too eager to use the Nukes.



* AsLongAsItSoundsForeign: The Russian dialogue in ''1985'', specifically "I have to stop it!" being subtitled as "I'm the only one who can do it!" when Kashrin "launches" the missile.
