- America's Godzilla has lesser fans than Japan's Godzilla.
- While Japan's Godzilla first appeared in 1954, America's Godzilla first appeared in 1956.
- The myths America's Godzilla foster so far are that: Godzilla breathes fire, he is green, he is either a hero or a villain, he is a lizard, he is based on a real life dinosaur and he eats people.
