This article contains early or scrapped production information about Legendary Pictures's Pacific Rim, and is intended to work as a history book on the film's development progress.
According to the script, Dengue is a large arachnid-type Kaiju that stands "thirty stories tall", and resembles a tarantula and a dragon. It has numerous eyes above a wide mouth that resembles a reptile's. Some unholy fusion of tarantula and dragon. Despite its purported and weight and height, it can move across land "unexpectedly fast".
In the script, Dengue is the first Kaiju attack demonstrated in the narrative not in a flashback or a simulated environment. The Kaiju attacks the city of Lima, Peru, and engages the Mark-2 Jaeger, Puma Real. Its skull is cracked by a punch from Puma Real and obliterated from the Jaeger's canon weapon.
