Anachronisms 

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.

Continuity 

In this movie, Godzilla's spikes don't light up when he charges his atomic breath, even though they do in practically every other occasion in the series.

Godzilla's look radically changes in closeups, when he's portrayed by a hand puppet rather than a suit. This is most apparent when he's seen from the front: the suit has a very wide head with noticeable ears, whereas the puppet's head is more narrow, and the teeth are far more crooked. The eyes also look different.

When Godzilla smashes the lighthouse with his tail, in the close up of his tail doing that, the model is much smaller than the one in the wide shot after he has smashed it.

Godzilla is mistakenly called Anguirus in the documentary film.

When the authorities first inspect the dinosaur book, there is a picture of Anguirus in it (put in by the filmmakers). When the book is being read later in the same scene, this picture is gone and replaced by a drawing of two duck-billed dinosaurs (which was the picture really printed in the book).

Crew or equipment visible 

During one of Godzilla and Angurius' fights, you can see where the Godzilla hand puppet ends and the technician's arm begins.

Plot holes 

If Godzilla easily makes his way through demolished, burning cities and withstands military bombardment, why does the fire coming out of the barrels stop him when the military traps him on the island? He could simply walk through it.

Revealing mistakes 

When Osaka's blackout is put into effect, all lights turn off including the car lights.

When Godzilla breathes radiation on Anguirus, it is clear as the sun that the footage of Anguirus' head has simply been pasted over some footage of buildings being destroyed. He also moves his head around in a very unnatural (and quite goofy-looking) manner.

In the final battle, the strings holding the plane models are visible in several instances.

In the shot where a few people are washed away in a flood in an underground-station, they appear to be transparent, as their images were apparently printed upon the background where the flood was actually filmed.

As the two monsters rampage across the city, various pieces fly out of the destroyed building miniatures that wouldn't be found in real buildings.

When the jets find Godzilla on the iceberg and fly above him, it is clear that he's actually an unmoving model.

The effect of the crumbling building's closeup was done via stop-motion, shot frame by frame. However for a frame or two, the entire screen "jumps" to the side and then back, likely because someone accidentally moved the camera before taking a picture.

One of Godzilla's back plates constantly wobbles around a lot every time he moves.

When Godzilla uses his atomic breath, drops of water are visible, revealing that there's actually a spray in his mouth.

The crew members of the boats arriving to the island at the end are unconvincing puppets.

The final shot of the film is obviously a painting, with the ocean water being static.

In the final scene, as Godzilla's getting buried under an avalanche, the holes on the suit's neck can clearly be seen as the actor's head presses against the rubber skin.
