Karloff is the fifth Kaiju to attack humanity.[1] It makes landfall in Vancouver, BC on April 23, 2015. It is the first Kaiju slain by a Jaeger.[1]


Karloff is a notably thin Kaiju as opposed to its more heavily muscled brethren. It has a large long head, with two sets of double eyes. Its skin is grey and leathery, with brown and red marking on its shoulders, back, fingers, and chin.[1]


The Pacific tracking network first spots Karloff making its way to Vancouver. With the line of battle ready Jaegers weeks away from official deployment, the Pan Pacific Defense Corps decides to deploy the Mark-1 prototype, Brawler Yukon, to defend the city.[1]

Half way into the city, Karloff's path is cut off by Brawler Yukon. Karloff charges the Jaeger not a moment after. However, it is quickly overpowered by the Jaeger's strength, and forced out of the city by the combined efforts of the Jaeger and a volley of missile fire. Karloff is killed from a blow to the face.[1]
