* EarWorm: "Up from the depths/[[WritersHaveNoSenseOfScale Thirty stories high]]/Breathing fire/His head in the sky/[[SayMyName GODZILLA! GODZILLA!]]"
* EnsembleDarkHorse: Axor. Being perhaps one of the most recognized monsters, if not ''the'' most recognized, in a series filled with expies, a monster with a personality [[AGodAmI of a god complex]], and being a part of [[FanficRecs/{{Godzilla}} Matt Frank's "Godzilla Neo" FanFiction series]].
* HilariousInHindsight: The initial leaked teaser for ''Film/{{Godzilla 2014}}'' shows the corpse of some centipede-like monster with prehensile fingers. One of the monsters on this show [[http://skreeonk.files.wordpress.com/2013/10/1385895_511535462272503_1798025594_n.jpg looks pretty similar]].
** Godzilla battles a terrorist group called COBRA years before ''WesternAnimation/GIJoe'' came along.
** Because of {{NuclearWeaponsTaboo}}, Godzilla's backstory here deviates from the films. He wasn't created by atomic bomb tests in the Pacific, he's essentially a sea monster, [[WeAreAsMayFlies an ancient alpha predator pre-dating mankind]]. This is the exact same backstory used in ''Film/{{Godzilla 2014}}''.
* JustHereForGodzilla: A textbook example. The main human cast is largely interchangeable with the typical Hanna-Barbera cast, and fans generally hate Godzooky, but the battles between Godzilla and the other monsters can still make up for it.
* RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap: In one episode, Godzooky actually did something useful and became powered up enough to give ''[[DidYouJustFlipOffCthulhu freaking Axor]]'' a hard time. Sadly, [[StatusQuoIsGod it didn't last]].
* TheScrappy: Godzooky. He gets a lot of hate from the Kaiju community, though in his defense, he's just a baby monster and may mature into something bigger and more likable if the series ever gets rebooted.
* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot: As unloved as he is, Godzooky actually could have been the basis for a promising storyline. He's canonically said to be Godzilla's ''nephew''--and unless the Big G is merely his HonoraryUncle, this would presumably mean that Godzilla also has at least one ''sibling''. But for some reason, this idea was never explored, and Godzooky's parentage is unknown.
** Well, technically, the original Godzilla did die in the original movie. Maybe Zooky is ''his'' kid.
