** Come on. Godzilla's death is EASILY one. The sad music, all of the human characters staring sadly at Godzilla's death, and just watching Godzilla, a massive, symbol of POWER, melt into radioactive sludge. It depresses me.

** Emiko Yamane post-1954. In the original film, she was one of the witnesses of the original Godzilla. The film heavily implied she is suffering from SurvivorGuilt after what she did: Reveal the Oxygen Destroyer. Not only did she was unfaithful to her fiance, but Daisuke told her to be happy with Ogata. But considering her surname, the film also implies she didn't marry Ogata either. Poor woman...

* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: While Destroayh is near universally considered one of the most violent kaiju in the franchise, the reason behind the violence is left vague. Some think that it's simply a case of Destroyah being a genuine sadist and taking pleasure in the devastation it causes. Others interpret Destroyah's actions as a NonMaliciousMonster that acting on instinct and lashing out at everyone after it/they had been harmed to remove threats to itself.

* SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic: Akira Ifukube sent both Godzilla and himself out with a bang, as this was Ifukube's last film score before he retired. In an interview, Ifukube said that composing music for Godzilla's death was almost like composing music for his own death.



* FridgeBrilliance: Remember the line "Godzilla never does destroy Japan"? Remember Junior's GentleGiant nature? Now the line has a new meaning due to the mess by the Futurians. The reason why JapanTakesOverTheWorld is maybe due to Junior being a gentle giant in the movie.

* HarsherInHindsight: In the original film, Serizawa tells Ogata to be happy with Emiko when he makes his HeroicSacrifice. In this film, she did not marry him after the events of the original and is most likely suffered from SurvivorGuilt when she felt she had no choice but to reveal the Oxygen Destroyer.

* MemeticMutation: DESTOROYAH!!! In the Godzillathon review of this movie, James Rolfe always says "DESTOROYAH!" whenever he addresses him.
** He even does this in the AVGN episode "Godzilla".

* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot: A scene featuring Godzilla giving Destoroyah a NoHoldsBarredBeatdown as dies was removed because it lessened the impact of Godzilla's death, though it's still pretty satisfying to watch.
** That ending was shot as a dupe and never meant to be used. Wires and filming equipment can be seen in many of the shots, betraying its hastily put together nature.

* CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming: After a TearJerker conga at the end, we see that Junior absorbed his father's radiation (saving the world in the process) and has matured into a fully grown adult as the next Godzilla. Our little prince we've seen grow up over the last few movies has taken the throne as the new king.

** Destroroyah's unnerving appearance and his HellIsThatNoise roar. Does not help that his final for looks like "the goddamn devil".
