Mass Effect Size Comparison with Kalros by Euderion Mass Effect Size Comparison with Kalros by Euderion
After i made my Mass Effect Size Comparisons, alot of people asked me how big the Thresher Maws and Kalros are. So here is the answer.
I added some known ships like the Alliance Cruisers or the Reapers to demonstrate the massive size of Kalros.

The common Thresher Maw we see in Mass Effect 1 and 2 are around 90 m based on the Codex entries and the wiki wich stated: "They can grow in excess of 30 meters above the ground, with a body nearly twice that size beneath the surface."
For Kalros i simply scale up the basic Thresher Maw until it match to the Reaper Destroyer wich epic fight we see in Mass Effect 3. So Kalros must be around 3 km long. Thats a big worm, right?

I use mostly the Reference pictures from :icontroodon80: for the starship side views.
Mass Effect is (c) by Bioware & EA

Use the download function for the full size!!!

The max I got was 1350m that was giving the benefit of the doubt that in order to come up and on top of the destroyer; she must have had at most 450m of her body above ground, which is about a regular thresher maw’s visible body length over being 2.5 x the height of the destroyer. Having twice that length below ground would have maxed her out, at being 1530m upon going as far as stretching her out to being 3x the size of the destroyer. 2980m would still be nearly 2 and a quarter times larger than the max minimal length, and just 10m less than a regular thresher maw’s full body length below being exactly 2x the length of the max possible length of 1530m. So 3km might have over shot it a bit. Even if scaling the size up by using the method of her being 15 times larger and going another 15 for width and length, after cutting it by the it 3 for the visible 1/3 and hidden 2/3 of her full body legth, it would have left her at an absolute maximum length of 2,250m still placing her size here as being larger by nearly 8x a regular thresher maw's full body length. My Respect to Kalros and all, but I would'nt place her as being too much over 1.5km in length at max.

Well, if Kalros is thousands of years old, it could keep growing, easily becoming huge.

Yep right. She has no natural enemies, and is at least 1000 years old. Who know, how big these Thresher Queens can be.

Kalros's picture in the ruins of the City of Ancients, the fact that the Salarians build the Shroud during the Rachni Wars (2000 years before ME1) in an arena dedicated to Kalros and the fact that seems that the last time that the Krogan makes any building in Tuchanka was 4000 years before ME1, all indicates that Kalros is over 4000 years old.

Also, Javik confirms in the Datapad app that Thresher Maws existed during the Prothean Cycle, wich means that, if the title "Mother of All Thresher Maws" was indeed true, Kalros will be over 50.000 years old.

PD: I always believe that Kalros is a 1000 meters long.

So, Joker's proposed cannon is out of the question... Or, they are going to need bigger ships. Great chart!

For Kalros, for sure.
Maybe with the basic Thresher Maws. There are less than 100 meters.

I was a bit surprised too when i made my calculations. I know Kalros was more than Dreadnought Size. But that is a epic size for the Mother of all Thresher Maws.

I don't doubt your calculations; I've seen how meticulous you are with them. And we can see side-by-side in-game comparisons between Kalros and a Reaper Destroyer, and between Reaper Destroyers and Reaper Dreadnoughts, so I'm sure your measurements are correct. It's simply surprising, as you said.

You see Kalros in Mass Effect 3 on Tuchanka when you try to cure the krogans from the genophage.
Here is the epic cutscene with Kalros: www.youtube.com/watch?v=e13eHP…
