* DesignatedVillain: Godzilla [[spoiler:Fillius]], [[Administrivia/TropesAreTools though this is the point]]. Everyone treats him with contempt, and not ''once'' did he attacked the humans out of spite. He only did so out of self-defense and if he did attack, he would have ended his fight swiftly. After killing Leland, he goes on his way. [[spoiler: His father would have [[NoNonsenseNemesis held every single person on sight dead-to-rights as soon as he attacked]]]].

* UnintentionallyUnsympathetic: Though it's really hard to sympathize with Haruo throughout the film despite his parents death at the hands of Godzilla, but considering that it's entirely his fault that nearly everybody dies or in danger when he drag everyone along for his endeavors to take out the kaiju in the first place. In the end [[spoiler: it wasn't Godzilla they've killed, ''it's his son'' which pissed off the awoken Big G himself.]]

Added DiffLines:

* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodCharacter: ''Tons'' of kaiju emerge and attack humanity in mass...but by the present when the film ''actually'' takes place, Godzilla killed ''all of them'' off screen.


* AcceptableTargets: Haruo, mostly due to his overly angst personality, and his [[DesignatedHero questionably "heroic" decisions]].



* SnarkBait: Haruo gets a lot of heat among fans who didnít like the movie, mostly due to his overly angst personality, and his [[DesignatedHero questionably "heroic" decisions]].

Added DiffLines:

* SignatureScene: The reveal of Godzilla [[spoiler:Earth, moments after Hauro and his men killed his son, and it [[CurbStompBattle decimating his remaining forces]]]].

* SugarWiki/HeReallyCanAct: Who expected ''Chris "Kirbopher" Niosi'', the creator of WebAnimation/{{TOME}} as the protagonist Haruo?

* HolyShitQuotient: Godzilla is not only massive, [[spoiler: he so tall the humans have no choice but to retreat. And that's not all: He has a power breath and a tailwhip that can destroy a mountain]]. Truly a God Incarnate indeed.

* FirstInstallmentWins: While opinions on the film are overall quite divisive, for many fans itís usually seen as the most coherent, better animated and memorable entry in the trilogy, as ''[[Anime/GodzillaCityOnTheEdgeOfBattle City On the Edge of Battle]]'' is often seen as a [[SophomoreSlump as a step down by comparison]] and ''[[Anime/GodzillaThePlanetEater The Planet Eater]]'' is [[BrokenBase highly controversial amongst the fanbase]].

Added DiffLines:

* ToughActToFollow: Needless to say, this movie had ''massive'' shoes to fill after the huge critical and financial success of ''[[Film/ShinGodzilla Shin Godzilla]]''.

Added DiffLines:

** Many joke that any possible adaptations of Toku from Creator/PolygonPictures will [[SeinfeldIsUnfunny repeat the plots from the trilogy over and over again]].


* JerkassWoobie: Haruo, a vengeful protagonist and crew member of the ''Aratrum'' whose so keen on killing Godzilla for driving humanity out of earth and killing his family in a process which is understandable for him to be very vengeful and angry, but doesn't stop from him being a massive JerkAss of the highest order towards anyone he comes across.

Added DiffLines:

* UnintentionallySympathetic: Godzilla himself. He's clearly supposed to be malevolent and dangerous, but we don't actually see him killing anybody before his NonMaliciousMonster son is killed. Given that Fillius was itself Non-malicious, it's not unreasonable for fans to extrapolate that the same ''may'' have been true of Godzilla before humans went to war with him. [[note]]We do, after all, only have one side of the story to go off of.[[/note]] Not helping is the fact that in both sequels he faces off against far worse evils who are more dangerous than he ever was, or that unlike them, Godzilla is satisfied with humans simply leaving Earth and never coming back.


* ValuesDissonance: Some have noted that Haruo -- who is determined to kill Godzilla to avenge his parents' deaths and the 22 years of suffering and humiliation that humanity has endured -- speaks to Japanese cultural values regarding dignity and honor. Most Western viewers instead see this as suicidal recklessness, incompetence, and Captain Ahab syndrome.

Most Western viewers instead see this as suicidal recklessness, incompetence, and Captain Ahab syndrome. However, the trilogy explores both points of view by its conclusion. [[spoiler:Haruo's desire for revenge leads to an even bigger threat that is never resolved. But humanity is able to integrate and rebuild with the help of their allies as a result.]]
