Awesome Music: Toshiyuki Watanabe's score is easily the best part of the whole film, aside from Ghidorah.
Beam Me Up, Scotty!: Contrary to popular belief, this version of King Ghidorah is not Grand King Ghidorah and is never addressed as such in the film.
Complete Monster: Not to be outdone by his expyDesghidorah, Grand King Ghidorah was, like his Showa counterpart, a spacefaring Animalistic Abomination inimical to all life. He was also a Child Hater of truly spectacular proportions who upon arriving in Japan not only tried to obliterate major metropolitan centers, but kidnapped every child on the island, intending to eat theirsouls. Mothra journeyed to the past and slew a weaker version of the dragon who, during his first visit to Earth in the Cretaceous Period, was responsible for the extinction of the dinosaurs, only to discover that in the present, Grand King Ghidorah was still alive and well. Returning to Earth again, Grand King Ghidorah continued with his plan to leave the planet a lifeless husk, starting with the children.
Moral Event Horizon: While kidnapping children to eat is pretty dang nasty, King Ghidorah at least was using them for food. While he was waiting for them to be ready to eat, however, he decides to spend his time ravaging cities For the Evulz. What makes this stand out is it highlights how absolutely unnecessary it was for King Ghidorah to do so, as he already got his main objective without doing any damage at all to the world within a short time of his arrival, so his rampage is nothing more than him having fun.
Ugly Cute: Cretaceous Ghidorah is simply adorable with his awkward chicken walk!
Visual Effects of Awesome: Even many detractors of the film admit the King Ghidorah suit looks absolutely amazing and it remains a fan favorite design for the character for its powerful and menacing appearance.
