  • The storyline, monsters featured, and consequences of each monster's actions of this novelization are strongly based on, and reference past Toho films. For example, some of the included monsters' appearances and their locations are compatible with those in Destroy All Monsters and Godzilla: Final Wars. As is the concept of Godzilla's supremacy over other monsters in the timeline, which was also seen in Godzilla Against Mechagodzilla and Godzilla: Tokyo S.O.S..
  • Biology of monsters, and their inherent targeting of humanity purposely, while being attracted to urban and populated areas are similar to that of the kaiju in the Pacific Rim series.
  • This novelization and film continuity shares similarities to the Kaiju Apocalypse series by Eric S. Brown and Jason Cordova in 2014, regarding global attacks by monsters and humanity's revenge against the creatures with the help of alien immigrants.
