* MisaimedFandom: Several fans wondered how "a giant 30 foot tall gorilla can beat a 50-metered radioactive dinosaur". The answer is that Toho was allowed to scale up King Kong, and give him [[ShockAndAwe electric powers]]. The ending is another story. Despite who the winner is, the fans in droves believe it to be a tie. Despite [[http://imgur.com/h57idBo Toho's official English brochure clearly stating this]].

** The Octopus. . . oh dear. For the most part, it appears that the filmmakers used a real octopus and placed it in the center of a model setup, but the green screening of the humans interacting with it are......oh boy.

** The Octopus. . . oh dear. Octopus is a divisive one. For the most part, it appears that the filmmakers used a real octopus and placed it in the center of a model setup, creating a surprisingly convincing scene, but the green screening of the humans interacting with it are......oh boy.aren't as good.



* ValuesDissonance: After arriving on Faro island, Sakurai gives cigarettes to all of the natives. Back in the 1960's, people had yet to realize just how hazardous smoking was to a person's health. Sakurai even says, "It's okay. They're all smoking."

* NarmCharm: Eric Carter's deadpan stare and Dr. Johnson's hokey explanations are hard not to giggle at, even if one might despise the U.S. version. Also the dubbing for the submarine cast range from better to so bad it's good, compared to the original actors who were just bad.

* MemeticMutation: King Kong as an alcoholic has been making rounds of him being a drinker thanks to the scene after defeating a giant octopus, to the point of every incarnation of King Kong is apparently him having a withdrawal.

* BrokenBase: Oh so very much. There are those who enjoy the Japanese version while viewing the English version as a bastardization, while those who grew up with the English version still have some nostalgia for it.

* ValuesDissonance: In the Japanese version, nuclear weapons are never mentioned and it is taken for granted that they will not be used under any circumstances. The American version had to add in dialogue that explained they will only be used as a last resort.

* SomewhereAPalaeontologistIsCrying: Dr. Arnold Johnson, curator of the New York Museum of Natural History, classifies Godzilla as a dinosaur "possibly crossed between the tyrannosaurus and the stegosaurus". A carnivore and a herbivore separated by millions of years of evolution can interbreed? What!? Made worse when the doctor holds up a children's dinosaur book to support his theories. It seems he couldn't even afford a copy of ''[[Film/GodzillaRaidsAgain Anguillosaurus, Killer of the Living.]]''
