- The first turning point in the end clash, which is Kong making a dash at Godzilla... only for him to step aside, causing Kong to slam his face into a rock, then pass out. By this time, the creators were aware of the inherited goofiness of kaiju movies, so they intentionally hammed this film up. The fact that the suits never stop looking like suits then adds an unintentional layer of hilarity to the scene.
- The Signature Scene of Kong ramming a tree down Godzilla's throat, causing the King of the Monsters to choke and spew out his atomic breath in rage. It almost looks like Kong is trying to make Godzilla eat his veggies with Godzilla acting like a bratty child. It's so iconic that it was reenacted in Godzilla vs. Kong almost 60 years later.
- Nakamura (Yu Fujiki) has a funny line:."Well I'm not as afraid of Godzilla, as I am of the editor. He's meaner."

- When Minilla first learned the atomic breath, and then tried to use the ability against the bad guys.
- Megalon and Gigan are rather expressive in this movie. At one point, when they have Godzilla and Jet Jaguar trapped in a circle of fire, Megalon actually makes a "kiss my ass" gesture. Then when Jet Jaguar flies himself and Godzilla out of there, they're visibly surprised, culminating in Megalon's expression being like, "seriously?!"
- Godzilla's "flying dropkick" must be seen to be appreciated.
- A bio-terrorist smacks someone wearing a construction worker hat in the head with what looks like a yellow board. It knocks the man out, with a cheesy, cartoonish BOING! to complete it.
- This exchange near the end:Miki: "I was worried!"Koji: "About Godzilla?"Miki: "...And about you."
- Destoroyah's realization that Godzilla (or his detonation) were likely going to slaughter him due to the intense heat; he actively tries to flee from the biggest threat; but is shot down by freeze rays and frozen, then shattering upon impact with the solid ground.
- If he survived, which is possible, (he is composed of micro organisms) he would be lying frozen and still have been killed by the meltdown.
- Godzilla's flying bodyslam is up there alongside the aforementioned flying dropkick as a ridiculous move.
- From the same movie, Megaguirus tries to perform a Diagonal Cut on Godzilla with her pincers, that Godzilla seems to dodge...then one of Megaguirus's pincers slide off, revealing that Godzilla performed a counter-Diagonal Cut with his dorsal spikes. doubles as Moment of Awesome.
- Tokumitsu Yuhara initially turns down an offer to take part in the Kiryu Project since it would separate him from his daughter Sara. Sara herself encourages her father to accept by saying she could come with him, citing the example of a baseball player who let his kid into the dugout. Tokumitsu just rolls his eyes and says those are two completely different things. Cue the government agents showing up at Tokumitsu's door to offer him again, saying that Sara can come with him. As a precedent, they cite the example of a baseball player who let his kid into the dugout.

- How does Zilla get its name in this continuity? Steven Woods asks for its name, only to be told through his static-y radio, "<skrt>zilla, sir. Sighting <skrt>zilla!" Woods assumes they're calling it Zilla. It's only a few moments later that he realizes they were trying to warn him that Godzilla was approaching
Woods: "Scratch that last order. We need heavy weapons and we needed them yesterday."

- Issue 4 of "Rulers of Earth": after Godzilla, Mothra, and her twin larvae send Destoroyah packing, Godzilla turns to leave while one larva goes to Mothra to help her. The other larva tries to bite the tip of Godzilla's tail, but he gives it a sidelong Death Glare and the larva sheepishly backs away with a guilty expression.
- Issue 17: After defeating an army of Mechagodzillas and Mecha-King Ghidorah, Godzilla and Anguirus both swim away together. Before doing so though, a physically exhausted Godzilla tries to take a quick breather, only for Anguirus to retort with an unimpressed snort by Godzilla's fatigue.
