** In ''Unleashed'', destroying the rock formations and boulders on Monster Island will cause the military to turn on you. Let me repeat: ''they treat rocks and boulders as human-built structures''.

* AdaptationalWimp: Mothra is simply an assist character in the earlier games and when she gets PromotedToPlayable she's the weakest monster in the game due to having weak attacks and less defensive power. Not helped by the fact that you start out in her larvae stage.



* TheBadGuyWins: If a villainous monster wins, then the ending has them destroying the world.



* GenericDoomsdayVillain: The Vortaak. The game even lampshades they're PanetLooters hat by saying "It's what we do..."

* ClimaxBoss: Critical Mass King Ghidorah in ''Unleashed'', unless of course you're playing on the Alien side. The Atoragon is also this unless you're allied the GDF. To a lesser extent, Biollante, despite being a normal foe, often winds up with its own boss mission simply titled "Biollante".

Added DiffLines:

* DestructiveSavior: Whoever you use in the first two games, and if you don't get the "Tyrant" ending ''Unleashed'', you will also play this a monster from the "Earth Defender" and "GDF" factions. In all the above, you're trying to thwart the AlienInvasion, and in ''Unleashed'', also prevent TheEndoftheWorldasWeKnowIt , but since the game revolves around fights between giant monsters, you are inevitably going to be causing a lot of collateral damage and destroy a number of buildings.
* DifficultySpike: Taking the difficulty off the easy setting in ''Save the Earth'', which causes the AI to go from a pushover to being able to outright destroy you.

Later in "Alien" opening of ''Unleashed'', Vorticia is seen presiding over a new invasion fleet and boasts NothingCanStopUsNow, only for her fleet to


Added DiffLines:

* VideoGameCrueltyPotential: OH GOD YES! The developers knew how much causing damage to the cities would be so they included the "Destruction Mod" where two players compete to see how causes the most damage.

* WhatCouldHaveBeen:
** ''Save The Earth'''s [[ExcusePlot story mode]] had an actual plot that was cut during development, with the green barriers being set up by the Vortaak and Vorticia posing as a reporter. Concept art also exists for an Arctic stage, and Biollante was to be playable but was removed from the console versions due to Pipeworks not getting the green light from Toho.
** Bagan, Monster X/Kaiser Ghidorah, Hedorah, Zilla, and King Kong were all considered for ''Unleashed'', but not included for various reasons.
** The developer diary for ''Unleashed'' mentioned a lot of things that ultimately didn't make it into the final version of the game.
