* ArtisticLicenseMilitary: Mansley snatches General Rogard's walkie-talkie and [[spoiler:orders a nuclear strike on Rockwell.]] In the (partial) defense of that scene, [[the submarine crew was already all set for firing and waiting for the order, so Mansley's "LAUNCH NOW!" could have been taken for it... although considering that they know it's a "danger close" launch of a nuke ''inside of a town full of American citizens'', it still probably would have merited at least a "come again?".]]

Added DiffLines:

* ArtisticLicenseHistory: At one point, Dean jokingly describes espresso as "coffee-zilla" when warning Hogarth against drinking it. Franchise/{{Godzilla}} definitely wasn't a household name in America in 1957, as there were only two ''Godzilla'' movies in existence at the time, only one of which (''Film/GodzillaKingOfTheMonsters'') had actually been released in the United States. The sole sequel (''Film/GodzillaRaidsAgain'') didn't come out in the United States until 1959.

Added DiffLines:

* RealityEnsues: Both in-universe and in regards to public perception in real life at the time when it comes to an atomic bomb. As much as we wish it wasn't true, if an A-bomb is dropped on your town, a fallout shelter isn't going to save you.

* FourStarBadass: General Rogard stays absolutely in control during the battle with the Giant, at one point shooting at him ''with his pistol''. Compare this to some of his more panicky subordinates, and especially [[DirtyCoward Mansley]].
