  • I know it's supposed to be for humour and to have a scene after credits, but it doesn't make sense. How was he supposed to survive in there for what was likely several hours or at least minutes without air and being soaked in the Kaiju's toxic blood and saliva?

    • You're right. It doesn't make sense. I suppose if; when the baby Kaiju died; its mouth was open a little; then Chau could get air to breathe. Upon death; the heart stops pumping, so toxic blood might not be a problem. Same thing with saliva. At death; the mouth stops secreting saliva, so no saliva problem. Chau; being a showman; would of course waited a while before cutting himself out so as to heighten the drama of his return. That's how I would've done it; anyway.

    • Just a thought here....But maybe the baby Otachi was there, and designed, specifically to keep a human alive? Otachi's mission was to go find Newt for study or return...it had to have a way to bring Newt back to the rift, or at least keep him alive and safe until they were done with him...So, they designed the baby as a cage....its the only kaiju baby there has been, and this was the only mission sent out to capture a human...and we know a human can, and did survive in the baby for a long time.

      It's a crazy idea...but it does make sense of a lot of stuff :)

      Well in some points I agree, however, in the scene where Otachi breaks the roof from the Public Refuge and puts this sort of "tongue" inside the refuge to what seemed to examine Newt, maybe this organ had some sort of method to obtain what the Precursors needed or wanted, there's no need of getting a human to the Ante-Verse for studies, but you as a Precursor can send a Kaiju with the abilities to study the human.

      Now, about Chau's comeback: Yes, the baby Kaiju died, the heart stops, so does the blood, but it is still there, the toxic properties from the blood are always there, secreted saliva before death is present as well, for a short time I suppose, now, Chau when he came out of the Kaiju was soaked in what seemed to be the Kaiju's blood.


      That's my point of view.

    • We don't know for sure that baby Kaiju are as toxic as adult ones. After all, we only have the one example.

      Heck, for all we know, Chau might be terminally ill now (blasphemy, I know).

    • Chau was probably only exposed to the inside of its stomach, which probably had not fully formed, so not much acid. mabye a pocket of oxygen from when it gulped him down sustained him. Im just wondering why none of his people attempted a rescue. Also - mabye Chau consumed the Kaiju parts himself and developed an immunity of sorts from the harmful effects.

    • Ii think they didn't rescue him because A) they thought he was dead, B) They were afraid off interferring with Newt's experiment (Pentecost would have their heads) or C) he wasn't a very good boss.

    • Another point (or continuity error, take your pick) is that the WORKERS were handling the Kaiju flesh and fluids barehandedly. Now, they were likely paid little and just expendable workers (why bother with extra protection if he doesnt care about them?) but, one exceedingly stressed point in the movie was Otachi's toxicity. EXCESSIVELY TOXIC. 

      And yet they can work with her remains barehanded? Maybe Otachi's only toxicity was in her acid and nowhere else. Like she had a concentrated acidic spot that drew it out from everywhere... bleh, getting ahead of myself here but maybe her acid-sac was more like an acid-sponge-y-liquid holder :P

      If it is possible to develop an immunity in one lifetime, then it wasn't very toxic to begin with.

      They presumably didn't touch it until they had neutralized the acidic factor (note how Newt and Chau are conversing about that very thing and how it makes the process slow).

      Yes; come to think of it. Recall that there's a black market in Kaiju body parts. So there must be a way to detoxify Kaiju flesh to make it safe or else you couldn't sell it to people without them dying as soon as they touched it bare-handed. Hmmm. Food for thought (pun intended).

      People can develop immunity to snake venom with repeated low level exposure.

      The comparison was to show a real world example of how someone can survive exposure to a deadly poison and survive. if you know exactly how Chau lived inside a supposedly very toxic creature for many hours, please share.

      This does make sense. And to be honest, I didn't expect for there to be this many replies! Thanks for your input, everyone!

    • The baby kaiju's stomach acids probably werent strong enough to dissolve a human. Additionally, Chau most likely was immune to kaiju acid, saliva, and stomach acids from using kaiju products. Im 10 years old.

    • Ok, sorry. I had just woke up and was tired, so my judgement lapsed. I do agree with the first point, as in nature, most animals with some sort of defense mechanisms (porcupines, for example) typically have the mechanism undeveloped, so no undue harm comes to either undeveloped, or missing. I think they mentioned that they nuetralize the toxicity before they harvest it. You can't buid immunity from what melts your body on contact.

    • Maybe Kaiju Blue is a charictoristic of mature Kaiju and that the acid starts developing when a Kaiju reaches maturity, and in the case of the seen kaiju, they were all built as full grown mature beast

    • Do we actually know when Chau escapes the baby kaiju? This might nave been minutes after Newt and Hermann left.

    • I know this is kind of a dead topic, but I just thought I should point out that acid isn't something you can build up an immunity to, as it is a simple matter of H3O+ ion concentration. I'm not sure which part of a cell is affected by H3O+, but I would presume all of them are, with H3O+ allowing for the oxidation of the component materials of the cell.

      The theory that the baby kaiju wasn't as toxic makes more sense to me, though. Having that high a toxicity might interfere with developmental processes, which would in turn imply that only some parts of kaiju are toxic, with that particular part being a definite exception.

    • It's possible that, like rattlesnake babies, it was toxic, just the bloodstream wasn't able to produce as it as powerful, or destructive as Otachi's (fully grown) bloodstream, making the blood less potent. Otherwise, if it was attached to the hive mind, it would have used it's acid blood spit. The other Kaiju would know that Otachi had acid spitting abilities as I swear I saw a acid sack on the thing. (I am of the mind that the acid was actually just Kaiju Blue being dispensed, said blood would be donated by the heart to the acid containment sack)

      Maybe the filmmakers though he can survive anything so that's why he survived inside the baby Kaju perhaps?
