** Hell, even the events leading up to Godzilla Jr.'s death was a TearJerker when you really think about them. Up until the final battle, Godzilla was desperately in search of his son, following him from location to location. Godzilla apparently KNEW he was dying, and like any father on his death bed, wanted to see his son one last time. And just as they're about to embrace, [[KickTheDog Destroyah breaks up the reunion and kills Junior.]] No wonder Godzilla got so pissed and started beating Destroyah so savagely. [[DoNotGoGentle Godzilla had nothing left to lose.]]
** 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 was she 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...
** Come on. Godzilla's death is EASILY one. Just watching Godzilla, a massive, symbol of POWER, melt into radioactive sludge is just sad. Ifukube's haunting score just hammers home how sad this moment is.

* 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.

*** The fact that Destoroyah is the living embodiment of the only weapon to ever permanently kill Godzilla. No last minute radiation, no magic, no nothing, that Godzilla was '''dead'''. And now that weapon is a giant monster. Imagine if the Tsar Bomba gained physical form and started walking around.

* 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.

Better yet, due to his upbringing among humans, he'll likely be actively defending humanity a la the Showa series.

Added DiffLines:

** For starters, it is Junior who attacks Destoroyah first and causes the whole battle to escalate. Also, once a dying Godzilla uses the Spiral atomic breath on Destoroyah, leaving him coughing up blood and mortally wounded, Destoroyah actively attempts to [[ScrewThisImOuttaHere flee the scene]], only to have his wings frozen solid by the military, causing him to fall down to the ground and die for once. On the other hand, his micro form actively targets the fishes in the aquarium and he also appears to laugh sadistically while fighting Godzilla.

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

* 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 is acting on instinct, and lashing out at everyone after it/they had been harmed to remove threats to itself.
* CreepyAwesome: Destroyah is one the purest examples of NightmareFuel in the franchise, and the fans love him for it.

** 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.
