YMMV / All Monsters Attack

Go To

  • Awesome Music: The Japanese version has a very kid friendly song naming off various monsters. While the U.S. version had a bizarre but So Bad, It's Good showing clips from this movie and Destroy All Monsters that some find more interesting than the original opening credits.
  • Designated Hero: We are supposed to feel sorry for Ichiro because he was bullied. Yet right after he stood up against said bully he goes on to pull a prank on a sign painter, who did nothing to deserve such a prank. Which in turn just made Ichiro just as bad as the bullies.

  • Family-Unfriendly Aesop: If you're being bullied, violence is the answer.
  • Memetic Mutation: "Godzilla says that I should learn to fight my own battles, you know", from the dub.
  • Most Annoying Sound: Minya’s voice in the U.S. release of the movie, which predates Barney in terms of annoying, dopey sounding dinosaurs that also doesn’t fit Minya’s age either as he’s supposed to be a kid himself. Averted in the Japanese version, however, in which Minya was voiced by a woman and does a better job at capturing the childlike sound for the character.
  • Narm: The Gabara suit is pretty narmy, but the goofy design is most likely intentional when considering who the film was made foar.
  • The Scrappy
    • While the Son of Godzilla introduced the not-so-well liked Minya, there are many lovely moments and he is tolerable. But this movie cemented Minya's scrappy status.

    • As is typical for kids in Kaiju films, Ichiro is pretty annoying as well.
  • So Bad, It's Good: Often seen as the bottom of the barrel of the whole Godzilla franchise, but it does have its audience that loves it for all the wrong reason.
  • Values Dissonance: After defeating the bullies, Ichiro proves his new coolness by... pulling a mean prank on a sign painter (one that, in a more serious film, likely would have killed him). Keep in mind, the sign painter did nothing to provoke such a prank!

How well does it match the trope?
