What, you didn't think the King of Monsters could pull off a Dynamic Entry?

Showa Era

King Kong vs. Godzilla:

  • Mr. Tako resting his arm on the TNT plunger.
  • 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.

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."

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:

  • Godzilla's "flying dropkick" must be seen to be appreciated.

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

Comics

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:

  • Zilla getting the hell out of Dodge when Godzilla (whom he'd been battling with) gets distracted by the military in Rulers Of Earth.
  • 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 Reality Ensues moment 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.
