Kobayashi... we beat Godzilla for you.
Early in the film during the Osaka night club scenes, stock footage of a stage performance from World War II is used. On the left side of the screen you will see the Japanese red sun banner and next to it is a swastika banner. This would not happen in the post-war years. Some versions of the film have the swastika blurred out with a gray circle.
In the closing credits, Minoru Chiaki's name is misspelled as "Mindru Chiaki".
In the American version, the scene where the film of Gojira's first attack on Tokyo is shown has several seconds added on to it as well as stop motion footage provided by Warner Bros. Also, the film adds narration to the sequence.
