Big things are happening on TV Tropes! New admins, new designs, fewer ads, mobile versions, beta testing opportunities, thematic discovery engine, fun trope tools and toys, and much more - Learn how to help here and discuss here.
These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
Despite the movie itself not being well received, Megalon himself was very much well accepted by the fans for having a cool design and some decent fighting ability. It helps he has appeared in the Atari/Pipeworks Godzilla games as an easy to pickup and play fighter.
Gigan's status as one no doubt was the reason for his inclusion in this title.
Ho Yay: Goro and Hiroshi are often interpreted as a gay couple.
Gigan got hit with this. In the new footage, Gigan's mouth and mandibles rarely move when he roars, and the mandibles are hanging at an angle the entire time like the internal supports are broken. He also never uses his belly buzzsaw, and the individual blades are all set at weird angles.
Look carefully and you'll find Gigan sucker-swipe in Godzilla from behind and slice open the top of his head with his buzzsaw. A spray of blood can even be seen before Godzilla falls down.
Visual Effects of Awesome: All that being said, a scene where Megalon destroys a dam is very impressive and obviously ate up a considerable chunk of the film's budget.
