Added DiffLines:

* SugarWiki/VisualEffectsOfAwesome: this movie is widely regarded as having one of the best, if not ''the'' best, Godzilla suits in the entire franchise. Like the previous two suits it could tilt its head up and down, but it could also look from side to side, allowing the widest range of motion so far outside of using separate animatronic heads. It also boasted perhaps the best proportions of any Heisei suit, looking neither too skinny nor awkwardly bulky.

Added DiffLines:

* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodPlot: Yuki has developed a unique blood coagulant meant to kill Godzilla specifically. Space Godzilla has the exact same DNA as Godzilla. Yuki has to cast aside his hatred of Godzilla to fight Space Godzilla instead...but he never thinks to try using the blood coagulant on Space Godzilla!
* WTHCostumingDepartment: Miki spends most of the first two acts wearing a [[https://static.wikia.nocookie.net/godzilla/images/7/79/Godzilla_Dawn_Of_Justice_Miki_Saegusa_Found_Her_New_Boyfriend_Julian_Roebuck.jpg/revision/latest?cb=20180905032332 truly loud orange suit]] while the Moguera pilots are given helmets that are helpfully labeled with a [[https://wikizilla.org/w/images/b/b5/Maj._Yuki.png gigantic letter M on the forehead]]. During the climax, Miki and Professor Gondo show up wearing...[[https://www.tohokingdom.com/movies/godzilla_vs_spacegodzilla.htm#lg=1&slide=111 these.]]


* CrazyAwesome: Yuki is a crazy old veteran living on an island alone, trying to kill Godzilla by shooting him in the armpit with a blood colagulent. Later he pilots a giant robot in battle against Space Godzilla and after MOGUERA is taken down, tries to continue the fight with a handheld missle launcher. The guy is out of his mind, but a total badass.

* ContestedSequel: Arguably the most polarizing entry of the Heisei era, and one for the series as a whole. Depending on who is consulted, this is either an entertaining and underrated film with fun characters and a great final fight, a SoOkayItsAverage entry that’s decent enough even if it doesn’t live up to the rest of the era, or an irredeemable atrocity with bad special effects and an inconsistent tone.

* NeverLiveItDown: Miki Saegusa’s line about feeling sorry for [=SpaceGodzilla=] after its death has been met with plenty of snark from the films detractors as an example of how poorly her character was written. This is despite the fact that this line was taken from the films notorious HongKongDub (which were known to change the dialogue for certain scenes). The actual dialogue has her say that [=SpaceGodzilla=] was a truly evil monster and that she was happy it was killed in the end.

** When Yuki’s chasing Godzilla on Birth Island, there’s a brief shot of Godzilla’s face casting a shadow on the ground, which looks more like a stiff, plastic toy slowly sliding across the ground.

* {{Narm}}: A mixture of this and NarmCharm: [=SpaceGodzilla=]'s name has been the subject of ridicule, since finding out the name ''Astrogodzilla'' sounded cooler. Nowadays, [=SpaceGodzilla=] is remembered as a clone of Godzilla with an interesting original design.

* {{Padding}}: Miki getting kidnapped by the {{Yakuza}} and G-Force going in to rescue her has been criticized by both detractors and fans as the weakest part of the movie for adding nothing to the film other than to pad out the runtime, especially since the Yakuza don’t appear again afterwords.

** Miki Saegusa. She’s either an overly preachy, {{Wangst}} filled UngratefulBitch who won’t stop flip flopping sides and complains too much, or she’s as level headed as she was before and is only trying to save the earth from an even worse threat compared to Godzilla. The fact that the more well known HongKongDub is often used when fans review the movie doesn’t help either.


* SpecialEffectsFailure: The Asteroid battle. The strings are so obvious, and like the Miki and Cosmos scenes, this could also have been cut without impacting the film, since it makes one wonder just how the Moguera could fly all the way into space in a short time, fight [=SpaceGodzilla=], return to Earth, and still have [=SpaceGodzilla=] not arrive at Earth until sometime later. It almost undoes the goodwill that Kawakita created with the spectacular editing involved in Godzilla's arrival at Birth Island.

Not helping matters is the spectacular editing involved in Godzilla's arrival at wires holding both the monster models and the asteroids are visible.
