Godzilla vs. Hedorah
- Base Breaker: Either an awesome film hearkening back to the original or a terrible film that ruined Godzilla.
- Big Lipped Alligator Moment: The random cartoon moments and the fish heads in the club.
- Don't forget Godzilla flying.
- Crowning Music of Awesome: Taiyou Kaese or Save The Earth, a piece very reflective of late 60s, early 70s music.
- Ear Worm: The main theme, "Save the Earth."
- Freud Was Right: Hedorah's eyes were modeled after vaginas according to Yoshimitsu Banno.
- Narm: Godzilla FLYING. 'nuff said
- Nausea Fuel: The sludge in the bay, which was mostly real.
- Nightmare Fuel: For the first time since the first Godzilla, human death is shown graphically. Especially unsettling is that in one scene, a baby is shown drowning in Hedorah's sludge.
- Some Anvils Need to Be Dropped: In Japan, in the 1970s, pollution levels were far worse than in the USA, due to rapid post-war industrialization, with no governmental checks. Despite its silliness, this movie was as relevant to the fears of 1970s Japan as the original was to the atomic fears of 1950s Japan.
- This Is Your Premise on Drugs
- Visual Effects of Awesome: Hedorah is arguably one of the better-portrayed monsters of the Showa series, with the movements of the monster eerily alien looking.
- What Do You Mean, It Wasn't Made on Drugs?: Banno himself wasn't a drug user, he just loved weird things like avant-garde film.
