The film has tons of sound effects (and music) from Toho's golden age sci-fi films, it was absolutely a stylistic choice lol. Anno is a known fan of Showa kino, he wasn't sloppily merging roars here and there to a Godzilla incarnation which already had it's own distinct character.
The more I think about, the fan-edit thing Smuggers originally said fits KOTM to a tee. The design approach of photoshopping 54 spines onto Godzilla, slapped on old roars, changing the skreeonking feet and tail, the new atomic breath, etc. all feel like sloppy Dougherty spent too much time reading r/godzilla discussions on G14's biggest flaws and tried amending them. Obvious fan service and allusions like the outpost numbers, Serizawa's suicide reversal, Burning Godzilla, queen of the monsters poop, """Anguirus""" at the temple, and legitimizing the KING OF DA MONSTAS as an in-universe title is overbearing wish-fulfillment that gets in the way. It appeals solely to the crowd who get caught up on whether or not Edwards is a TRUE FAN because his Godzilla has too much of a T-rex like jaw.
