Added DiffLines:

* LighterAndSofter: Probably the most light-hearted of all the Godzilla films, [[UpToEleven even among the Showa movies]]. A series that started as a grim allegory for a nuclear holocaust made flesh is now a coming-of-age story of a young boy learning to overcome bullying and all the kaiju sequences are relegated to [[AllJustADream dream sequences]].

Added DiffLines:

* BrokenAesop: The movie attempts to tell an anti-bullying message by having Ichiro stand up for himself after being bullied relentlessly throughout the film, and while it does a decent job at first in delivering its message, it immediately falls flat when at the end Ichiro decides to win over his bullies by pranking an innocent man just painting a sign by scaring him off his ladder. A man who had nothing to do with his bullying to begin with, and in any other movie would’ve likely gotten him either seriously injured or killed.

Added DiffLines:

* AlternateHistory: Unlike the rest of the Showa era which are connected to each other in one way, this film plays out as if Godzilla, Minya and his monster allies were fictional characters that Ichiro looks up to and enjoys.


* FreeRangeChildren: Ichiro wanders around a lot around the city, going into places a kid like him has no business being in. Justified in that both his parents lead busy work lives, which leaves him on his own most of the time.

It uses extensive stock footage of various previous movies. Because of its mostly irrelevant nature, it remains one of the easiest targets for criticism and sometimes hatred from the fanbase at large. It is the last Godzilla movie that Creator/EijiTsuburaya, special effects master of the series would be involved in before his death.

* TooDumbToLive: Sure, Gabara, attack the giant dinosaur that has [[BreathWeapon atomic breath]], has defeated monsters far more powerful than you, and is pretty much synonymous with [[PhysicalGod a godlike being]]. [[SarcasmMode This won't end poorly...]]

* SuddenlyVoiced: Minya, who sounds like some mix of {{Goofy}} and [[TheFlintstones Barney Rubble]] in the English dub. He was voiced by a woman in the original Japanese.

* CurbStompBattle: After being outsmarted by Minya, Gabara shows that he's a [[SoreLoser sore loser]] by starting a fight with Godzilla. Unsurprisingly, it's a mostly one-sided scrap.



* ShockAndAwe: Gabara's primary powers

* BullyingADragon: Really Gabara? You're gonna attack the father of the kid monster you just got your ass handed to, when said father is a capable fighter and judo throws you over his shoulder? This action also fits as TooDumbToLive.

The start of the ''Matsuri'' sub-period that lasted until 1975, this film was fully aimed at a youth demographic. Instead of playing in first run theaters, it instead played at the Toho Champion Festival, an biannual summer/winter matinee program intended for schoolchildren.

* CelebrityParadox: Young Ichiro is a fan of Godzilla, ''as a character''. This is evident of being one of Creator/IshiroHonda's entries, meaning Honda is one himself.

* NeverTrustATrailer: "''Godzilla's Revenge'' knows no limit, no end, no stopping!" The U.S. theatrical trailer promises Godzilla's supposed revenge, but... This type of advertising happened after the film's failed east coast run as ''Minya - Son of Godzilla'', which was all too honest about the content of the film.
