YMMV: Terror Of Mechagodzilla

  • Fridge Brilliance: Mafune being angry because the scientific community denying his claims 15 years prior must have a reason, and they do: In the events of Godzilla, the original Godzilla was responsible for destroying Tokyo while the second Godzilla in this series reopened Japanese's fears the year after before his Heel-Face Turn. This means the scientific community were Properly Paranoid, and did not want such events to happened again (until King Kong vs. Godzilla happened).
  • True Art Is Angsty: The film has received alot of popularity with the darker and more serious Japanese version becoming available in the United States, but the film is still full of plot holes. Sure, it's a good movie, but being dark doesn't necessarily make it an underappreciated masterpiece.
  • Vindicated by History: It has its flaws, as do all Godzilla movies to various levels. This film had the lowest box office attendance but is well liked by many fans today.
