Not to mention that they kept calling Mechagodzilla a cyborg in 1974.

Yeah, I never did understand why they kept referring to him as a cyborg. Mechagodzilla's a machine in both Showa, and Heisei film, the millennium films maybe since he contains the bones and DNA of the original Godzilla inside him.

I think they where refering to the fact that Mechagodzilla was covered in (what appeared to be) living tissue.

The 800 series Terminators are also called Cyborgs for this reason. Living tissue mixed with mechanical components.

There's always the off chance Showa Mechagodzilla's "skin" was stolen from Godzilla and grown. We're never really told what it is.

Ew.

Which is coincidently how Skynet manufactures the human tissue for their Terminators.

Im starting to think that this might have inspired the Terminator. It's probably just a coincidence though (an eerie one at that)

Speaking of Terminators and Mechagodzilla, everytime I see Kiryu collapse his hand into a drill I'm reminded of the T-1000 turning his hands into weapons.

"Cyborg" is thrown around pretty loosely in older science-fiction. He may be using "cyborg" in reference to how it's a machine emulating a living creature. However, Mechagodzilla Mk. II does share a brain with an actual cyborg.

I think what is more interesting is Showa Mechagodzilla's A.I. The Simians don't control him like a mech; they give him orders and he carries them out whatever way he feels like doing. Only in emergency situations did they take direct control.

" If you have an idea, won't you tell us. We have tried every power known to us. We can't kill him."

That's one of my all time favorites.

Even though the Controller was bull-s***ting at that point (though I like the fan-generated idea that only after Godzilla and Rodan beat down KG a second time was his energy level low enough for the Xilians to gain control of him)... it's still a pure awe moment.

I love the understatement involved in his first rejoinder to Fuji's question. "If you have an idea how to do it, please, won't you tell us?

I like Glenn's snarkey response to the Controller telling them the danger is over: "Glad to hear it, now what else have you got to tell us?"

Dont know if these have been said already.

Shortly after that...

I don't recall that, was it in FCTW?

Also, "It's big and terrible" has undergone a bit of memetic mutation in my family.

From the international dub of DAM during the press conference after the monsters escape Monster Land:

"Remember 20 years ago, that typhoon?"

Was this supposed to reference an earlier film, or was it just a bad choice of words for the dub?

^ I can't recall what the subs on the JP version say, but it's a reference to a typhoon that happened on MonsterLand around the time of it's inception.
