Showa Era

King Kong vs. Godzilla

Mothra vs. Godzilla

  • Nakamura (Yu Fujiki) has a funny line:.
    "Well I'm not as afraid of Godzilla, as I am of the editor. He's meaner."
  • Godzilla in this movie is meaner, volatile, and...kind of a klutz. At one point he crushes a building not by charging at it, because he was walking on the embankment next to it, his foot slipped, and he fell on it.

Invasion of Astro-Monster

  • After driving away King Ghidorah, Godzilla does a victory dance. It's a happy moment.
  • After recovering from being Mind Controlled, Godzilla kicks a rock at King Ghidorah, and smacks Rodan with his tail.
  • Earlier in the film there's a nice Deadpan Snarker moment courtesy of the Controller of Planet X:
    Glenn: "Can't you drive [King Ghidorah] away?"
    Controller: "If you have an idea how to do it, won't you tell us?"

Son of Godzilla

Godzilla vs. Megalon

  • 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.

Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla

  • During the climactic final battle between Godzilla, Mechagodzilla and King Caesar, Godzilla attempts to fire a blast of his atomic breath at Mechagodzilla, only for him to rapidly leap out of the way, with Godzilla blasting King Caesar instead. That alone would be funny enough, except it's followed up immediately with Godzilla making an exaggerated 'dang it!' motion with his arm!

Heisei Era

Godzilla vs. Biollante
  • 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.

Godzilla vs. SpaceGodzilla

  • This exchange near the end:
    Miki: "I was worried!"
    Koji: "About Godzilla?"
    Miki: "...And about you."

Godzilla vs. Destoroyah

Millenium Era

Godzilla vs. Megaguirus

Godzilla Against Mechagodzilla


Dark Horse Comics one-shot Godzilla Color Special

  • When G-Force is trying to get a town of villagers to safety Kino asks why they've stopped... and then sees the reason.
    Kino: There are times when I hate this job.
    Reiko: Less talking more running.

The IDW comics:

Godzilla Ongoing
  • When Kiryu is running low on power, Hikari sarcastically remarks "What, are you just going to pull up to a power plant and ask them to fill 'er up?" Minutes later...
    Boxer: (in front of a power plant) "It's a global emergency, fill 'er up!"
  • Kiryu giving Kumonga a piggyback ride to New York City.

Godzilla: Rulers of Earth

  • 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.

Godzilla: The Half-Century War

  • When the Anti-Megalosaur Force realizes they've got a human foe:
    Ota: ...Did anyone bring... a gun?
    Col. Schooler: Sometimes I wonder about this crack team that I have assembled.
    • There's another realistic outcome later when Ken chews out Ota for smoking near him when he's trying to quit, which results in this gem:
      "...Ken, we chase a giant, radioactive dinosaur for a living and you're worried about getting cancer from a cigarette.
  • Also from Half-Century War, the Mothra van. Just the Mothra van.
