* HellIsThatNoise: Alien Baltan's laugh[[note]]FWO FWO FWO FWO... MUO-FWO FWO FWO FWO FWO...[[/note]], which is so distinctive that it has a high chance of resonating inside viewers' heads for eternity. It's even this trope ''in universe''.

* GenreTurningPoint: It's difficult to overstate just how much this show rebuilt and codified the {{Kaiju}} genre. Whereas before, a giant monster coming out of the sea to wreck up the place would be like a typhoon or hurricane: unstoppable, and the little humans scurrying away from it could only hope to rebuild afterwards or put up token resistance. The cost of stopping one would be horrendously high Film/({{Gojira}}) or worryingly public (Film/KingKong), requiring military deployment. From ''this'' show onwards, it became entirely believable that those little humans could fight back on their own terms, and do it [[MonsterOfTheWeek once a friggin' week]] at that. Oh, and the big guy on Earth's side - the idea that Earth could have external, fairly long-lasting help from elsewhere - is also a nice change of pace.

* ShoutOut: Hayata using a spoon instead of the Beta Capsule (he was in a restaurant and rushed out to engage) is possibly the inspiration for TheTick using "Spoon!" as a battlecry.

* SugarWiki/VisualEffectsOfAwesome: Put it this way - it's 1966, and most of the crazy shit you see in a typical episode would have looked good in a theatrically-released film. This was a ''half-hour kids' television show'', filmed in color at a time when there were barely enough black-and-white [=TVs=] to watch it on. They could've fudged things here and there, but ''didn't'', and wow does their effort show even nearly 60 years after the fact.
