** On top of that, Ghidorah has her cornered in Fenway and is getting ready to vaporize her. Does she cry? Panic? Quietly accept her fate? Nope. When the Kaiju equivalent of Satan roars in her face, [[DefiantToTheEnd she roars right back]]. Humans are ALPHAS.

Added DiffLines:

* After all the Titans are released on Emma's doing, Madison has this to say to her mother: "You're a monster"

* [[HeroicSacrifice Serizawa knowingly powers through lethal radiation to hand-deliver a nuke]] to the downed Godzilla. That the man is standing against such rads is astonishing of itself, but he also drags a damn heavy bomb up a giant temple and takes a final few moments as the timer is set to call Godzilla an old friend in earnest serenity.
* You wouldn't think the oft-played trailer scene where Godzilla rises out the water in front of a submarine of stunned onlookers and fires his atomic breath heavenwards could still be awesome, having seen it so many times--but then the film combines it with [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d6FvFfVmngs this breathtaking redo of the original Ifukube Godzilla themes]]. This being the first we see of Godzilla after Serizawa's HeroicSacrifice to charge him up once more, it really gives it a "[[HesBack The King is BACK, baby]]" feel.

** It really looks as if the military is escorting Godzilla into battle, and in a way, are going to fight alongside him.

** It really looks as if the military is escorting Godzilla into battle, and in a way, are going to fight alongside him. Given the stakes and what they're up against, it's like the military is saying to Godzilla, "We'll distract him, but it's up to you to kill the son of a bitch."


* Godzilla's atomic breath has historically never been that effective against Ghidorah, except on rare occasions like ''Film/GodzillaVsKingGhidorah'' (where he'd both gotten a major power-up not long beforehand and had hit the weak point of Ghidorah's middle neck) or ''Film/GodzillaMothraKingGhidorahGiantMonstersAllOutAttack'' (where he was the villain and way more powerful than normal). As such, it's incredibly satisfying to see it knock Ghidorah flat on his ass when [[BigDamnHeroes Godzilla arrives to save Madison]].

As such, it's incredibly satisfying to see it knock Ghidorah flat on his ass when [[BigDamnHeroes Godzilla arrives to save Madison]].


* For the first time in the franchise's history, the military actively teams up with the Godzilla in his fight against King Ghidorah. In a series that has over 30 films and has lasted 60+ years with multiple incarnations of the character, never has there been ''one'' instance of the two factions teaming up. The closest it got was in ''[[Film/GodzillaFinalWars Final Wars]]'', but even then it wasn’t the military, just a small faction of remaining survivors, and they weren’t technically fighting with Godzilla, just using him as a weapon to stop the Xiliens. Here? Battleships sail alongside him and fighter jets fly above the Kaiju king, soaring in to shoot the Three-Headed Monster as Godzilla triumphantly marches his way to Ghidorah. All with Godzilla's original theme playing as he advances. Many cheers, applause and tears of joy were had at the sight alone.

Added DiffLines:

*[[OhCrap Rodan's reaction upon sensing just what's ''in'' the storm.]]


* Godzilla's roar-off with Ghidorah in the Antarctic. In the previous movie when he did this with the Mutos, Godzilla's roar was significantly louder and more forceful than that of the former. This time around, when Ghidorah roars in return, it's every bit as powerful, showing that this new enemy is every bit a match for our protagonist.

** Rodan actually pushing Ghidorah back after they collide. This is a kaiju that's twice his size and Rodan's still able to push him back in midair.



* Rodan actually lasts about two minutes against Ghidorah with no back up at all, and is winning for most of the fight. Until Ghidorah cheats by using his other two heads to pull his wings out before blasting him in the chest.

* The fact that this film is being nominated in four different categories at the Saturn Awards is very awesome. The categories include Best Fantasy film, Best Music Score for Bear McCreay, Best Performance By A Young Actor for Millie Bobby Brown and Best Special Effects. Proving the film made enough of a splash to be recognized by the Saturn Awards.
