    • As far as we know, tresspasser resulted not only in the destruction of 3 cities, but also the contaminaion of a large area of california thanks to the nukes needed to take it down. 

      however, during the whole "fall of the jaeger program" period, jaegers were being destroyed by kaiju and large areas of the city were being destroyed. If only one jaeger was deployed, then it would be killed and the kaiju would be free to rampage around the city until another jaeger could be flown in. but most likely no kaiju was able to rampage around for 6 days again.

      Yea, if we're talking effectiveness against Jaegers, they went against the best and still almost won. Otachi got one kill and crippled another. Leatherback finished that one and shut down Striker. They were so close to winning the whole thing for team Kaiju.

        Loading editor
    • Effectiveness against Jaegers? The trio of Scunner, Slattern, and Raiju were murderous. Striker was destroyed and Raiju nearly destroyed Gipsy before death. Not to mention, besides Otachi, they were some of the worst IV's they've seen.


      Does Trespasser really count, though? He was sucessful, but not for long until he was nuked. Didn't fight a Jaeger either.

      I believe it was a question to how much damage they did to cities, because it really doesn't matter what damage they did to the Jaegers... Jaegers were just forces standing in their way... the reason they were sent here was to wipe out the human race and make way for the Precursor's domination, so really, the destruction of Jaegers wouldn't matter, as long as they were out of the way.

    • Trespasser. Destroyed SIX cities in a week (Said by Beacham on tumbler) and survived three nukes before dying. I was going to say Scissure was the next sucessful kaiju, but then I remebered that he only attacked Sydney. After Tressy, it would be Otachi. She destroyed Typhoon, critically weakened Cherno, smashed HK, and almost destroyed Gipsy. She also had a baby who killed Chau.

      It destroyed FIVE cities. Beacham's tumbler says so.

      Depending on how you interpret Mutavore's function, he/she might count too. That body seems to be built around the idea that he/she's a tool, so even though (s)he was killed, the job of cracking open the wall was still done.

      Sure they did. Raiju tore off Gipsy's arm, and Scunner managed to hold Gipsy off for a decent while.


      Slattern though, prettymuch did nothing but get torn apart by Striker the moment they made contact.

    • In overall effectiveness and endurance, Otachi might be the toughest Kaiju ever faced, it took C.Typhoon's thundercloud directly, got flailed over by C.Typhoon's throw straight into a beatdown from Cherno Alpha, then it took out C.Typhoon, and that was all before Leatherback showed up to tackle C.Alpha.

      Then, it withstood a massive beatdown from Striker Eureka before Leatherback shut that badass down, and then it had a city-wrecking skirmish with G.Danger which it almost won even after it's tail was frozen and broken, Otachi is pretty hardcore.

      But that's most likely because Otachi was tailored to fight Jaegers, who knows how well Trespasser would've done in a Jaeger fight?

      A Prehensile Tail, An Acid Spray, And the Ability to Fly, Otachi is pretty damn versatile.

        Loading editor
    • I don't know what it is with you guys and Trespasser. He took 3 cold war nukes that were most probably aimed at him but hit buildings instead (This is the skyline of San Fransicso we're talking about)... Slattern, meanwhile, survived a thermonuclear bomb that had an equivalent of 1.2 million tons of TNT.

      Even Tacit Ronin (sorry TR fans, but he only has 2 kills) can kill that Kaiju in one slash of his knives.

      For me, Otachi was the most successful as she took out Crimson Typhoon in a matter of seconds (minutes, if you remember that a Kaiju battle takes 1 hr atleast usually, so I estimate 15 minutes of battle). She clearly overran Cherno but didn't get the kill as Leatherback came in for the finishing bonus. She then intercepts (or tries, atleast) Striker long enough for Leatherback to destroy Cherno. She then proceeds to basically defeat Gipsy Danger in a fair fight (How would you like it if you were literally backstabbed ?)

      Scunner was the most underused Kaiju in the movie, and for me, Slattern was the biggest fail of the entire war. He was sent to destroy Striker-he failed. Sure he survived the blast of the bomb but then he tried to defend the Breach against a crippled Jaeger(right hemisphere dead as right arm and leg broken) and fails again. Only thing he did was jam the release of the bomb, drive Striker to suicide (no big deal), damage AKM Launcher of Striker and break an O2 tube of Gipsy.

        Loading editor
    • Trespasser Godzilla'd three cities. What other kaiju did that well?

      Otachi failed to kill Newt. That was her goal. 

      "Fair fight" doesn't mean anything here. This isn't a competition, it's humans trying to kill giant monsters.

      Slattern actually succeeded. The bomb was rendered useless (it exploded). Also, Slattern was only killed by what would be considered a dirty trick (if there was such a thing in this scenario) on Gipsy's part. (How'd you like it if you were hugging some guy and he burned a hole through your chest?)

      We aren't judging best kaiju, we're trying to figure out whch kaiju did the most damage based on its goals.

        Loading editor
    • Tres did do enormous damage, but if yoou say Slattern had it unfair as a hugger burned a hole thru his chest, what about Otachi ? She was giving a metal monster easily 2000 tons to the adge of space...and Gipsy breaks Otachi's heart (literally) by cutting a hole thru her chest...

    • Slattern took a nuke before it fought Gipsy. Sounds like a fair fight to me.

      "Fair" still doesn't mean anything, this is a movie about robots fighting monsters, not boxing. We're still talking about most successful, too.

      Now, my vote is for Trespasser, because as a giant monster that suddenly appeared in a world ill-equipped to deal with said giant monsters, I wouldn't be surprised if he caused massive damage.

      Three cities are pretty damn expensive. Besides, it's possible to rebuild the destruction in Hong Kong, since it wasn't, y'know, nuked.

      Killing Jaegers is not that notable, considering the fact that only four were left at the start of the movie. 

        Loading editor
    • While Striker Eureka is beating the crap out of Mutavore, does Sydney look like it had been nuked ? Even when Mutavore breaks down the AK Wall, Sydney looks brand new...and it took two nukes DIRECTLY + Scissure at the same time. Trespasser, on the other hand, got 3 nukes one after another...and STILL if you care enough to venture into some pages on this wiki labelled "PPDC Archives" or something like that, you will see that San Francisco was in habitable condition by 2017 and damage was NOT as bad as imagined...People were living in hordes over there till the UN deciced to trust the AK Wall and moved them further inland.

      Striker Eureka's construction cost 100 billion Australian $...so I'm guessing Crimson Typhoon cost atleast 70 billion $... and Cherno, around 10 billion...

      But Cherno was repaired too in 2021...and how much did the Plasmacasters of Gipsy cost ?? Otachi disabled them too...and Hong Kong was pretty badly damaged by both Otachi and Leatherback before Gipsy decided to wreck even more havoc(Couldn't Mako have had enough sense to try and land Gipsy in the water ??? A tsunami would have been caused but the damage would be lesser atleast)...and EVEN before Otachi took off from Hong Kong, Gipsy had damaged quite a few buildings....

      Kaiju bunkers are supposed to be Kaiju proof, and Otachi tears into one within a minute...that would have been expensive too....

      So my rough estimate of damage by Otachi or caused by her=100 billion ASD

      Damage caused by Tres=3 nukes: 45 billion ASD...+ 3cities=20 billion ASD

        Loading editor
    • Cherno was killed by Leatherback. Doing minor damage doesn't count as a kill.

      People could still live in Hong Kong, just like they could still live in San Francisco.

      Trespasser did way more than 45 bil.

      Once again, how did you reach the estimate that Otachi destroyed half of Hong Kong? 

        Loading editor
    • Have you seen Avnegers:Age of Ultron ??? In the movie, the plan to destroy Earth is to get a city 35k feet up in the air and then drop it to the ground for World-wide annhilation.

      Gipsy Danger weighs 3k tons...and has MUCH lesser surface area than a city...remember Pressure=Force/Area.

      Gipsy ALSO went up 40000 feet + Otachi's corpse, in two parts, had the same amount of gravity acting on it...

      Basically, 3 asteroids that can destroy a city(remember the Siberian one in 1900s and the one last year in Russia ?) hit Hong Kong...

      And EVEN before the flight of Otachi, Leatherback and Gipsy do some damage in their fight, after which Otachi just takes down buildings for the heck of it against Gipsy, and Gipsy herself punched the cement out of a few buildings...so half of Hong Kong really is destroyed...

      Maybe MC was trying to imply that Slattern indirectly caused Hong Kong to be (not) flooded by the nuke Striker detonated and therefore imply that Slattern was a huge (flop of a) sucess since she (didn't) managed to cause the (apparant destruction) of a city

    • Slattern did better than Scunner. Slattern took down half of Striker's systems with one hit. Scunner just bit Gipsy's knee and looked to have caused a bit of torso damage. And of course Slattern also rammed into Striker, smashed it through one of those sea things, rolled it through the sediment (how Striker wasn't disoriented, I don't know), and almost took down Gipsy even after taking a nuke to the face. And of course Raiju only took off one of Gipsy's arms until inertia and a chain sword killed him. And Slattern is male. First off, the two arguments saying he's female (the name, and him being the biggest) are invalid. The names of the Kaiju, with the (obvious) exception of Knifehead, are meant to be insulting, rather than descriptive, and remember how he got the name in the novel? As for the argument of him being the biggest, and it being common in reptilian species for females to be larger, is also invalid, because, y'know, the kaiju are engineered life forms. And there are arguments for him being male. He's commonly referred to as "he" or "him". And of course, he's been called the king of the kaiju, not the queen. And he was likened to the Devil, which is generally depicted as male.
