The first example that leaps to my mind is the dam destruction sequence in Godzlla vs. Megalon. In a movie where the spfx sequences bounce mostly between awkwardly placed stock footage and new footage which cannot hide its low budget and rushed production, Megalon's attack on the dam stands out as one of the more effective bits of monster destruction in its era.

Your examples are the best that come to my mind. Although the fight between Godzilla, Jet Jaguar, Megalon and Gigan is cheesy fun those other scenes are pretty cool.

Somehow, made me think of Mothra having a "Phoenix" form or something...she does seem to be reborn through her offspring whenever she dies.

Almost all of the initial destruction scenes in GFW were fantastic - better than the actual fights for sure.
I don't think I saw the same movies as the rest of you.
I'll always miss Vega.

From ROM2, the underwater battle.
Kaiju are just like people- giant, radioactive people.

Megalon went into a bar and saw Gigan. Megalon said, " Again? I thought you gave this up."
" What can I say," Gigan asked. " I'm hooked."
