* 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.



* ShoutOut: In-universe example with ''[[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.

** 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.

* 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.

* ContinuityReboot: This film ignores majority of the Showa series (ironically, it is part of the era, but it's considered part of the Heisei series) while ''Film/{{Gojira}}'' is the only film not to be ignored in the Showa-Era. This tradition continues in the Millennium series.

Added DiffLines:

* OffModel: The towering 18 foot tall "Cybot" anamatronic used for closeup shots of Godzilla is rather notorious for not having a strong resemblance to its costume counterparts (the film was the first to use molds to create multiple Godzilla suits).

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/{{Gojira}} 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.

* MissingTrailerScene: There's some footage of Maki, Naoko AND Okumura in the ruined Shinjuku district running from Godzilla in the trailer. Presumably, this was done during a publicity shoot, as a still exists from the shot.
