* After Mothra gives Godzilla an assist at Boston, Ghidorah ends up deciding to keep her busy. We get a particularly ominous moment as a result of this--as Mothra wheels back, claws bared, ready to attack Ghidorah, we see the sky behind her slowly beginning to glow a fiery red...and she barely has any time to react as Rodan swoops in from the clouds and intercepts her.

* Despite being shown as nothing less than heroic the whole movie, the way Godzilla suddenly takes note of the humans watching him after his PillarOfLight is very subtly terrifying for fans familiar with older Godzilla films, as this one scene ''will'' bring to mind the many, many times Godzilla's regarded humans in the past and the destruction that always followed.


** Even worse, we hear something buzzing around Ghidorah's head. The same head that survived being in the ocean at the epicenter of the Oxygen Destroyer's blast. [[FridgeHorror This is a perfect breeding ground for Destoroyah...]]



** In [[Film/Godzilla1954 the original film]], Dr. Serizawa feared the Oxygen Destroyer's potential so much he sacrificed himself so it could never be remade. Here? It was ''created'' by the military, and they know it's true potential since it nearly killed ''Godzilla.''

Added DiffLines:

** Even more horrifying: Somewhere in the universe is a world filled with creatures just. Like. Him. And apparently they're capable of traveling through space.


* The movie's final line of dialogue is truly nightmare inducing: Dr. Stanton been glad Godzilla is on the humans' side, and Dr. Chen replying with a "For now." Considering men like Jonah still exist, it's not impossible that Godzilla will have to face ''human threats'' one day...and it would not be a merciful sight.

** The cave painting of Rodan is noted to have human blood in its pigment. Dr. Chen posits two possibilities behind this. The first is that it's the blood of warriors who died fighting Rodan and done as a tribute to them. The other? That it's the blood of people who were ''[[HumanSacrifice sacrificed]]'' to Rodan to make sure he stays benevolent.


* What ACTUALLY killed Emma at the end - the car flip, the falling rubble, or Godzilla? Because the last one could have been either his mere presence which was ''melting steel and concrete'' or the Nuclear Pulse, which was frying Ghidorah to ash. No matter which way you slice it, it was agonizing if brief.

*** Ghidorah literally is never touched by Godzilla in the entire first fight except for the choke slam at the beginning. The rest is Ghidorah completely dominating Godzilla. He even knocks Godzilla into the hole he came from after dodging Godzilla atomic breath before blasting him with gravity beams from all three of his heads.

* '''Ghidorah's death.''' The first nuclear pulse roasts his wings to a crisp. The second melts his two side heads, screaming in agony as they are reduced to charred skulls. Ghidorah backs up in obvious terror as Godzilla advances. The middle head survives this...and by the look on his face, [[ThisIsGonnaSuck he knows he's utterly screwed.]] Then comes the third pulse, delivered by Godzilla right to his chest, which completely and utterly ''vaporizes'' Ghidorah's body. Everything bar the head itself...which is ''still alive!'' Roaring and struggling as Godzilla grasps it in his mouth, charges one final Atomic Breath and reduces Ghidorah to atoms.

* Ghidorah's entrance in the Isla de Mara battle. The Argo is being pursued by Rodan into his storm, and is about to grab it - when suddenly it veers away, and the lightning suddenly illuminates the far larger Ghidorah looming out of the darkness ''right in front of everyone in the Argo''. No wonder Sam and Chen look terrified.

* During the climactic battle, Godzilla seems to have Ghidorah on the ropes when one of the heads bites down on an electric transformer. Thereís a wide shot of the power draining shown by the whole city going dark...and then Ghidorah flares his wings and lights it right back up again, spewing lightning bolts from pretty much every point on his body. Itís a terrifying sight to behold.

* To further amp up Ghidorah's SatanicArchetype, one of the shots in the latest trailer has him perched atop Rodan's volcano, wreathed in flames while a crucifix is seen looming ominously in the foreground. He seems to almost be saying, "WHERE IS YOUR GOD NOW!?"
** ...or maybe it's saying '''"NOW, [[AGodAmI I AM GOD!]]"'''.

** Heck, ''Rodan'' looks terrified in the split second before Ghidorah arrives. Let that sink in: The 154 foot tall, 39043 ton pterodactyl that sleeps in volcanoes and can level cities just by flying over them is ''terrified by Ghidorah's presence''. [[SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome Though this doesn't stop him from fighting the guy]].
