** It's been a slow process, but Zilla (aka American!Godzilla, aka GINO) has been gradually redeemed in the eyes of the fandom. The animated series featuring his more Godzilla-like son (with Zilla as an undead, robotic antagonist) helped, as did his brief appearance in ''Final Wars'', where he received a beating from the original Godzilla. It's in the IDW comic ''Rulers of Earth'' however, that Zilla reached his final redemption, [[TookALevelInBadass taking a huge level in badass]] and holding his own with the real Godzilla. The comic more or less indicates that Godzilla was the stronger of the two and would have killed Zilla if the fight had continued, but Zilla put up a fantastic fight against big G. The fandom universally acknowledging it as a great moment for both combatants. Zilla also gets some good moments later in the series such as surviving a fight with Destoroyah and being one of the only monsters to evade capture buy the alien Tripods and destroyed several of them.

** The movies are claimed to have undergone a dork age starting with either ''Film/SonOfGodzilla'' in 1967 or (more commonly) ''Film/AllMonstersAttack'' in 1969 that lasted through TheSeventies, though one is hard-pressed to explain exactly ''how'' the '70s flicks were any sillier than the films that preceded them, given that Godzilla was already [[Film/KingKongvsGodzilla setting King Kong's crotch on fire]], [[Film/MothraVsGodzilla drunkenly tripping over buildings]], [[Film/GhidorahTheThreeHeadedMonster chatting up a storm with Mothra and Rodan]], [[Film/InvasionOfAstroMonster dancing in outer space]], and [[Film/EbirahHorrorOfTheDeep playing volleyrock with a giant shrimp]] during the '60s. It probably has more to do with the outlandishly low production values for a few of those films coupled with bad direction and poor acting. In fact, [[Film/GodzillaVsGigan only]] [[Film/GodzillaVsMegalon two]] of the '70s films are considered irredeemably bad, with [[Film/GodzillaVsMechagodzilla two]] [[Film/TerrorOfMechagodzilla films]] being considered almost on par with the '60s films and a [[Film/GodzillaVsHedorah fifth]] falling squarely into LoveItOrHateIt territory. Even the aforementioned bad films often fall into the SoBadItsGood category for some people, with ''Film/MothraVsGodzilla'' actually often considered the ''best'' Showa-era Godzilla film out of all of them.

** Lately, the Millennium series seems to be taking over this role, due to a lack of continuity and a perceived overuse of tropes [[FollowTheLeader lifted from]] popular {{anime}} of the time, though there is still some contention within the fandom on this.

** Mothra was incredibly popular amongst fans of both genders, and still is today.

** That scene makes more sense in the Japanese version of the film. One of them spoke chinese to the soldiers(and just wished them good luck), and the girl traduce what he said.

* Fans that often argue toward one another on whether ''[[Film/AllMonstersAttack Godzilla's Revenge]]'', ''Film/GodzillaVsSpaceGodzilla'', [[Film/{{Godzilla 1998}} the 1998 American remake]], or ''Film/GodzillaFinalWars'' is the worst Godzilla movie ever for various reasons. Said reasons include excessive stock footage (''Revenge''), bad music (''Space Godzilla''), adaptation rape (remake and ''Final Wars''), lackluster action (''Revenge'' and ''Final Wars''), ripping off ideas from other movies (remake and ''Final Wars''), bland story and/or characters (all of them), bad dubbing even worse than usual (''Revenge'' and ''Space Godzilla''), [[TheyChangedItNowItSucks bad updated appearances]] or the monsters themselves be them new or old (''Revenge'', remake, and ''Final Wars'').
* Also hotly debtated: the best era of Godzilla films. Were the Showa (1955-1975) films fun yet cheesy films or low-budget over-the-top messes? Was the Heisei (1984-1995) era a good throwback to Godzilla's darker roots or were they nothing but wangst and boring "beam war" fights? And, then there's the aforementioned Millennium era. Good luck getting the fans to agree on any one era.

* AmericansHateTingle: Japan's reception of the game was pretty positive, with it earning a score of 30 out of 40 in Famitsu. Western response however, has been almost unanimously negative [[http://www.metacritic.com/game/playstation-4/godzilla with both critic and user scores]] on Metacritic reaching extreme lows. [[CriticalDissonance Godzilla fans however, have been more welcoming to the game than most of the general public or reviewers.]]
