Added DiffLines:

* SolarPunk: As a notable background plot point, Godzilla's constant rampaging through Japan to get to nuclear reactors to feed from forced the country to invest in alternative power sources that hopfully won't attract Godzilla. In the end, the massive efforts to make such a switch were AllForNothing: Godzilla will still go for reactors, be they nuclear or plasma... or, at least, the gigantic plasma reactor that a CorruptCorporateExecutive decided to hide smack in the middle of Japan's relocated capital [[WorseWithContext and Godzilla marches towards in the third act]].


** One that hits full SeriesContinuityError levels: in the opening it's explained that Godzilla has a drive to rampage towards nuclear reactors that forced Japan to go green and create plasma reactors as an anti-Godzilla measure... and then at the climax it is discovered that Godzilla is targeting the new Japanese capital of Osaka because it has a '''plasma''' reactor. Further specifics are not given on why the reactor type that supposedly shouldn't attract Godzilla all of a sudden attracts Godzilla ([[MST3KMantra other than the fact Godzilla rampaging through whichever is the current capitol of Japan is a franchise standard]]).

* {{Retcon}}: Considering that this is the same Godzilla from ''Film/{{Gojira}}'', he does not die at the hands of Daisuke Serizawa's Oxygen Destroyer (nor if that existed).

This film introduces the first human character to climb onto Godzilla's back in the main film franchise and begins the Millennium tradition of introducing older veterans in older, more authoritarian roles. Although it was well recieved by fans overall, the film tanked at the box office in Japan, selling fewer tickets than any Godzilla movie since ''Film/TerrorOfMechagodzilla''. Like ''Film/GodzillaVsBiollante'', this set the tone for reintroducing older, popular monsters in future films.

Added DiffLines:

* FunnyBackgroundEvent: When the G-Graspers at the end are celebrating, someone grabs Kudo by the injured arm, resulting in him wincing in pain. It's a darkly entertaining contrast to everyone else's celebrations

Added DiffLines:

* AlternateHistory: Unlike other ''Godzilla'' movies, which reflected reality and kept Tokyo as Japan's capital, Godzilla's original rampage caused Japan to move the capital to Osaka.

Added DiffLines:

* FlyingFirepower: Megaguirus flies at supersonic speed and is able to fire a ball of radioactive energy from her tail.


The 24th entry of the ''Franchise/{{Godzilla}}'' franchise and the second of the Millennium era. Another ContinuityReboot (albeit with some BroadStrokes cues from ''Film/{{Godzilla 2000}}''), it's a direct sequel to the first film. It involves the return of the obscure Meganulon from ''Film/{{Rodan}}'' and the introduction of Megaguirus, their queen and an addition to the tiny number of female monsters. Called ''Gojira tai Megagirasu Jī Shōmetsu Sakusen'' (''Godzilla x Megaguirus: The G Elimination Project War'') in Japan.
