* ArbitrarySkepticism: The scientists don't believe Mafune's theory of a dinosaur living near Japan despite the fact that two Godzillas had already come to Japan before doing such (The first was a [[{{Film/Gojira}} villain]] while the other in [[Film/GodzillaRaidsAgain 1955]] had a HeelFaceTurn, serving as Japan's protector). Not to mention that other prehistoric monsters like [[Film/{{Rodan}} Rodan]], Anguirus, and [[Film/VaranTheUnbelievable Varan]] had made rather significant appearances by that point.

The movie was not well received when it was released, and Toho would not produce another Godzilla movie until the king's 30th anniversary in 1984. The film was one of only two Godzilla films to have less than a million tickets sold. It would remain the least successful Godzilla film until ''Godzilla: Final Wars'' in 2004. The music was composed by Akira Ifukube, and the special effects were directed by Teruyoshi Nakano. The film was produced by Tomoyuki Tanaka.
