Kaiju is a Japanese word for "strange beast," but it's often translated in English as "monster".
It may refer to any bizarre creature, but in recent times kaiju is typically associated with a genre of films originally made popular in Japan in the 1950s.
The most famous Kaiju in history is Godzilla, the humongous lizard. Other well-known Kaiju monsters include Mothra, Anguirus, Rodan, Gamera and King Ghidorah.
According to GDT at CCNY, there will be 9 different Kaiju, each one with it own personnality and abilities. 40 different Kaiju have been designed, then they chose 9. There will be different type: sea Kaiju, flying Kaiju...but no "legendary Kaiju" (such as Godzilla). One of the Kaiju will vomit corrosive magma-like liquid.
”The Kaiju are created as perfect traps. They’re not carbon-based organisms. They’re silicon-based organisms. It takes a while to figure out something that is not carbon-based. They decompose and release an agent called Kaiju Blue that completely destroys the cities, makes air impossible to breathe and their blood is completely acidic.”
GDT gave more informations about how army and scientiste dealt with it:"So they figure out that the base of fluid of the Kaiju is ammonia-based. So how do they neutralize it? But it takes a while because, first of all, it melts the pavement, melts the structures around it, makes a noxious gas. By the time they get to a Kaiju, the first few attacks, they can't even get samples or corpses or pieces to analyze it. The Kaijus are essentially triggered to self destroy if they fall. So it's a very smart weapon. "
