The Wei's are former street fighters who have fought the Kaiju several times and became local heroes in China. Their personal dragon symbol is found all over Hong Kong. In 2015 they joined the Jaeger Academy to become Jaeger pilots.
Pan Pacific Defense Corps.Edit
The Wei's assist the Pan Pacific Defense Corps with their extensive knowledge on the Jaeger's systems, weapons and deployment strategies. The brothers are famous for their use of the signature "Thundercloud Formation" in battle against the Kaiju.
Hong Kong IncidentEdit
The Wei's are airlifted from the Shatterdome in Crimson Typhoon to help defend Victoria Harbour from two category IV Kaiju, Otachi and Leatherback. Herc and Chuck Hansen are ordered by Marshall Stacker Pentecost to defend the coastline, not wanting to risk Striker Eureka's destruction. The Wei's and the Kaidonovsky's in Cherno Alpha move into position to engage Otachi. The Wei's are the first to spot Otachi and immediately activate Crimson Typhoon's triple saw blades in the "Thundercloud Formation" after the Kaiju knocks them over with its tail. The triplets wound Otachi several times with the Jaeger's blades.
The Wei's grapple with Otachi. Using a handstand maneuver, they rotate Crimson's lower body in a 180 degree turn and use the momentum to throw Otachi over to Cherno Alpha. The other Jaeger takes advantage the creature's weakness and begins pummeling the dazed Kaiju. As the triplets move to assist Cherno Alpha in eliminating Otachi, its tail grabs Crimson's Conn-Pod and crushes the head, killing the Wei's in the process.
The body of Crimson Typhoon sinks to the bottom of the harbor.
- According to Travis Beacham "Tang" is a component to the triplet's family name, "Wei". As such, their names would likely be arranged as "Tang Cheung Wei", "Tang Hu Wei", and "Tang Jin Wei".
- Crimson Typhoon was originally intended to be piloted by quadruplets. However, Guillermo Del Toro realized this was asking too much. He was amazed when identical triplets were found. Thus, extra camera effects were not needed anymore.
- According to the Luu brothers, Crimson Typhoon's pilots were originally American women. However, according to Travis Beacham, they were originally intended to be Chinese women.
- The Triplets screen time lasted approximately 3 minutes.
- When asked about the survival of the Wei's and the Kaidanovskys, Travis Beacham confirms that none of them survived.
- In the novelization, when Stacker Pentecost describes the cranial damage to Crimson Typhoon's Conn-Pod, it is suggested that at least one of the Wei's might have survived Otachi's attack by swimming out while it was submerged, but none of them reappear.
- According to one of the Luu brothers' facebook post, there was a deleted scene involving a confrontation between the Chinese Jaeger team and the newly arrived Russian team at the Shatterdome. The result of the confrontation was never revealed.
- The names on Wei Triplet's team jackets reads as such: "煒虎 (wei hu)", "煒龍 (wei long)", "偉祥 (wei xiang)"
