* In Film/GodzillaVsKingGhidorah, Emi Kano stated Godzilla never destroyed Japan. 2 movies later, we are introduced to [=BabyGodzilla=] that would not kill a human being. In Film/GodzillaVsDestoroyah, both Godzilla and Junior dies, but guess who gets [[BackFromTheDead came back to life]]? Junior.

* In Film/ShinGodzilla, it might at first seem odd that Godzilla is firing violet atomic blasts instead of the typical blue, or even the occasional red or orange, until you take a look at the electromagnetic spectrum. Violet is the last color on the visible light part of the spectrum, and therefore has the shortest wavelength in that range. This also means that the next shortest wavelength range in the electromagnetic spectrum is ''ultraviolet''. Atomic bombs emit the highest radiation in the ultraviolet range. It might be a stretch, but the violet coloring is perhaps the closest our we can get to "seeing" the sheer level of radiation that Godzilla's atomic blasts emit.

**** The second Godzilla initially did, too. Godzilla said as such during its conversation with Mothra when Mothra reached out to Godzilla and Rodan for aid against King Ghidorah.

The kaiju always outnumber the mecha/weapons (outside the Heisei continuity, [[TheSwarm unless you count Destoroyah as multiple organisms]]), which is Fridge Horror when you remember the destruction just ''one'' kaiju is capable of; imagine 6, or 9, or 18 kaiju all working together to destroy a city, and there'd be almost ''nothing'' that could stop them.

* I've read in Mothra's bio that over the years she gains new abilities and powers. Not exactly exciting, giving that she is just a butterfly that has to go up against a three headed dragon and a lizard that breaths atomic blasts. Then I thought about the fact that Mothra is a LegacyCharacter. She passes on her legacy through her heirs and offspring. So, why does is this fridge brilliance? Because she is preforming a sort of Evolution, not against the environment, but against her enemies! She's preparing and bettering herself/her kids for the challenges that they'll/she'll face in the future!

** The Oxygen Destroyer. Long story short, it kills its victims by ''asphyxiation''. To make matters worse, end the end, you're either reduced to a skeleton... or dust. It also doesn't help that the Oxygen Destroyer is ''worse'' than the atomic bomb and is the only weapon powerful enough to kill Godzilla. Then, later in the Heisei series we find out it spawned something much more evil than Godzilla.
*** Adding to this, if Godzilla hadn't been inadvertently freed by the Saradian agent in GodzillavsBiollante, indirectly causing most everything post Mothra, Destroyah would've utterly destroyed all life on earth since there wouldn't be powerful enough monsters and tech to stop him.
** In the 1964 film, ''Mothra VS Godzilla'', the egg hatches into twin Mothra larvae. Ok, nothing scary about that. But, the next film that came out the same year, ''Ghidorah: The Three-Headed Monster'', there's now only '''one''' Mothra larvae. So, what happened to the other one? [[spoiler: It's implied in the film that the other Mothra larvae died. And, remember how Godzilla wanted to ''eat'' the egg in MVG?]]. Also its injuries fighting Godzilla may also be a factor as Godzilla smacks the poor thing with his tail.

* In ''Film/DestroyAllMonsters'', The monsters, namely Godzilla knew where the Kilaaks's base was. If you think about this, that means the original Godzilla ''[[ItCanThink knows]]'' where and what he's [[AcceptableTargets targeting]].
** It's been explicitly stated that Godzilla absolutely ''hates'' humanity (with only a few notable exceptions) due to them mutating him into a monster via nuclear radiation. You think a giant monster mindlessly rampaging across a city is bad? Try dealing with a monster that not only ''knows'' where he is and what he's doing, but is deliberately trying to wipe out all of humanity as an act of vengence.

** Actually, this troper read both the official screenplay and novelezation. Quite a bit was cut for the movie. The screenplay explicitly states that the only part of the 1954 movie that is "canon" to the 1998 film is the legend. In the film, "Gojira" is merely the term for a gigantic, marine dragon from Japanese myth. The cook was referring to Zilla as a MYTHICAL CREATURE, likely one his grandparents told him about.

*** Alleviated somewhat considering Junior is friendly towards humans and is a GentleGiant. But others of his kind may not be so noble...
