The Kaiju (怪獣 kaijū?, Strange Beast) are a race of amphibious creatures biologically engineered for warfare by the Precursors, a sentient race from the Anteverse. In 2013, the Precursors opened a dimensional portal at the bottom of the Pacific Ocean that transported the Kaiju from the Anteverse and Earth. The Kaiju were the Precursors primary proponents against the Jaegers in the twelve-year Kaiju War.[1] In 2035, the Kaiju return to Earth, reigniting a second conflict between the Precursors and mankind.[2][3]


At the end of the Kaiju War in 2025, pilots Mako Mori and Raleigh Becket used Gipsy Danger’s nuclear reactor to destroy the Breach and the facility the Precursors used to create the Kaiju that were able weaken the defenses of the Pan Pacific Defense Corps.[1]

Ten years following the war, the absence of the Kaiju was a catalyst for the reformation of the Pan Pacific Defense Corps., and the Jaeger Program. The program became a global defense force, and allowed for the reconstruction of the Jaegers.[2]

Through means yet to be revealed, the Precursors were able to discover another means that allowed the Kaiju to reenter Earth and attack the populace living along the Pacific Rim or someone from the human world let them in.



Main article: Kaiju#Biology

As aquatic creatures, the Kaiju are able to traverse in underwater environments in addition to surface environments. The Kaiju that return to Earth appear to have elements of technology incorporated into their biology, allowing them to use weaponry otherwise unavailable to the original waves of Kaiju. In addition to technological elements, Kaiju appear able to regenerate grievous injuries and merge together to create larger Kaiju.[2]


Like their predecessors, the Kaiju that reemerge on Earth continue to work as a coordinated force, either fighting in groups or swarms that can overwhelm an individual or a number of Jaegers.[2]
