* DeletedScene: An unfinished scene that was filmed shows that Destoroyah was to have the ability to [[ChestBlaster fire an energy beam from his chest]] known as the "[[WaveMotionGun Wave-Motion Ray]]". He was to fire it 1-2 times on Godzilla with it. It was ultimately scrapped due to it's little usage in the film. This explains the mandible crevasse in his chest.
** The original story was Godzilla fighting his predcessor in a form of a ghost (the 1954 Godzilla by the way), but the idea's been scrapped due to the idea of two of Godzilla's enemies being another Godzilla or Godzilla-like monster had already had its use. So now, they used the elements of the [[Film/Godzilla1954 original film]], and made out a monster born from the very weapon that killed the first Godzilla. Anguirus was originally to be a part of this scrapped idea as a guest character. The Ghost Godzilla idea was later revisited into ''Film/GodzillaMothraKingGhidorahGiantMonstersAllOutAttack''.
** Another idea that ultimately morphed into this movie was an idea known as "''Godzilla vs. Barubaroi''," a film in which Godzilla (who wasn't having a meltdown) and Junior were to fight a shape-shifting monster known as ''Barubaroi''. The best way to describe this idea was what if Godzilla fought [[Film/TheThing1982 the Thing]] (and no, [[Film/MothraVsGodzilla not that Thing...]])
** Junior's resurrection was originally a [[TheStinger stinger]], but Toho felt no one would see the scene by the time the film was over. So it was put as a final scene.
** Originally, the plan for the series following this film was to take a break and let the American series run. Then, Toho would resume making new films in 2005. Of course, the 1998 remake was a disaster, so Toho brought Godzilla out of retirement six years early.
