** It should be noted that the WhatCouldHaveBeen american [[Film/Godzilla1994 Godzilla incarnation]] had a similar origin to the Heisei Gamera. With the success of this Gamera, and the hype in Japan for the Godzilla 1994, this would have probably been a ContrivedCoincidence.
*** Speaking of WhatCouldHaveBeen, there was a theatre play in the 70's planned Godzilla/Gamera movie crossover around 2002. Imagine if they were basically the Kaiju Avengers.

* HilariousInHindsight: Gamera's Mana beam is one when you realize it's basically a KamehameHadouken. In ''Manga/DragonBall'' not only was Master Roshi a trainer of Turtle-Style Martial arts, but also rode a baby Gamera, and the KamehameHa can be translated as "'''Turtle''' Destruction Wave". Even better, it's a combined energy attack using the power of the planet akin to Goku's Spirit Bomb.

* HomegrownHero: The Showa-era films have token American children shoehorned into stories set in Japan. Daiei did this specifically because their film distributor assured them the movies would be better-received in the US if there were Americans in the cast.

* CompleteMonster: Onodera from Gamera vs. Barugon, let's count the ways...[[spoiler: He let's one partner get stung by a scorpion and causes a cave-in to try to kill the other, even after they saved his life. He beats up a man on a crutch and his wife, stole their money, and burned their house down. And still he wouldn't stop! Even after getting beaten up by the film's human hero he steals the diamond that was luring Barugon into the water and FINALLY gets what was coming to him by getting eaten.]]

* ItWasHisSled: Gamera can fly. The original film actually had this power come as a surprise with him not displaying it till he's flipped on his back, but now it's as well known as his [[BreathWeapon power to breath fire]].

* TheyCopiedItSoItSucks: Gamera has been hit with criticism of being a rip-off of Godzilla, [[FandomRivalry especially from the Godzilla fanbase]]. This is mostly warranted with the first two films, which do rather blatantly steal scenes from Godzilla's first two movies, but later films avoided this.



* [[SurprisinglyImprovedSequel Surprisingly Improved New Series]]: Almost unanimously regarded as superior to the the Showa series, and made Gamera his own distinct character with more to separate him from Godzilla.



** If her dreams are accurate, he walked through her apartment building after plumeting to the ground. Whatever the case, her not holding a grudge against him would be very odd!
