In 2013, the world had changed. Giant monsters, seen only in our worst nightmares had risen from the depths of the ocean with one goal: the extinction of humanity. We were expected to hide, to give up, to fail. What our enemy did not realize, was our ability to rise to the occasion. The first set of Kaiju attacks were thwarted by the use of nuclear weaponry but that method did more harm than good due to the fallout and the toxicity of Kaiju blood. A new weapon was needed. To fight monsters, we created monsters of our very own: JAEGERS.
What is a Jaeger? The word is of German origin meaning, "Hunter". They are massive mobile weapons meant to hunt down and kill any Kaiju that rises up to attack humanity. Most Jaeger's have two pilots while a few have three. This is because the machinery used to control the Jaeger is controlled by the mind but they are simply too big for one pilot to handle. When two pilots enter a Jaeger, a procedure is used, called the Drift. This is where the two pilots minds are connected, allowing man and machine to become one. The deeper the bond between the two pilots, the better control they have of a Jaeger. As the Kaiju War raged, the Jaegers became more and more advanced.
Tacit Ronin is a Mark I Jaeger, first launched on December 6, 2015. It was the first Japanese Jaeger and was also the fourth Jaeger to ever be constructed. It was originally piloted by husband and wife, Duc and Kaori Jessup.
On June 21, 2016, the Kaiju, Itak, had made it into Tokyo Bay where Tacit Ronin was to hold the Kaiju. However, Itak had caught the Jaeger off guard, damaging its nuclear reactor and rendering its pilots unconscious but Itak hesitated, allowing the pilots to recover. Tacit Ronin was then forced into the water to be destroyed but Coyote Tango had arrived to join the fight. Now distracted, Itak's chest was split open by Tacit Ronin, ensuring victory.
Due to the battle with Itak, Tacit Ronin was to remain inactive in order to be repaired but would be deployed again on July 5, 2016 when the Kaiju, Ragnarok, attacked. The Jaeger, Victory Alpha was sent in its place but had been destroyed by the Category II Kaiju, forcing Tacit Ronin into battle. The fight against Ragnarok was brief as the Jaeger had slashed the Kaiju's upper body, then proceeded to impale it in the back, driving its blades through Ragnarok's chest. Its pilots however, died due to a neural overload but Tacit Ronin remained intact after the battle.
Following the death of the Jessup's, Tacit Ronin had been assigned new pilots and remained active until late in the Kaiju War, when it was ultimately torn in half by an unnamed Kaiju. Its remains were then taken to Oblivion Bay.
is a lightly armored Jaeger. This allows it to be faster and more agile while also hitting hard. It is designed for close combat and comes equipped with retractable Fang Blades, located on its wrists. Due to its agility, Tacit Ronin
has a signature move called, "Cobra Strike", due to its fang fisted fighting style.
Romeo Blue is a Mark I Jaeger, first launched on December 15, 2015. It was the second Jaeger made in the United States after Brawler Yukon. During its time in the war, it had gained at least two confirmed kills.
During the early years of the Kaiju War, Romeo Blue would be deployed when the Kaiju, Hardship had surfaced. Both would grapple with each other, with Hardship nearly tearing off the conn pod. Romeo Blue would later gain the advantage by using the chunk of a bridge as a melee weapon, ultimately killing the Kaiju. A parade would then be held in light of the victory as the celebration was broadcasted worldwide.
On February 29, 2020, Romeo Blue would be deployed to stop the Kaiju, Knifehead, from crossing the ten mile point at Anchorage, Alaska. However, the Kaiju would manage to slip through the defenses, allowing Gipsy Danger to intercept the Kaiju at the seven mile point. Romeo Blue's last deployment would be in Seattle some time later, when an unnamed Kaiju had attacked. The Kaiju would then tear off one of Romeo Blue's arms and use it to tear into the conn pod, killing the pilots, Trevin and Bruce Gage.
As with all Mark I Jaeger's, Romeo Blue is powered by a nuclear reactor. It is also one of the slowest Jaegers due to its heavy armor and great strength, only achieving about one fifth the speed of Striker Eureka. Its weapons are primarily used for long range attacks but if it does need to close in, its long arms become very useful as it has a signature move, "Tracheal Break". In order to protect its conn pod, Romeo Blue possesses a single, large fin in its chest
Horizon Brave is a Mark I Jaeger, first launched on December 22, 2015 and was one of the very first Jaegers to be made. It had managed to gain at least two kills during its time in the Kaiju War.
In 2019, Horizon Brave, along with Gipsy Danger and Lucky Seven had been deployed to Manila to stop a Category IV Kaiju from attacking. It had managed to hold its own for a while but Horizon Brave had suffered major damage due to the Kaiju's barbed tail, forcing it out of the fight while Lucky Seven and Gipsy Danger killed the Kaiju. Some time later, while out on deployment, Horizon Brave was destroyed in Lima, Peru. It is unknown of what happened to its pilots, Xichi Po and Lo Hin Shen.
Horizon Brave lacks the strength of other Jaegers but it is well armored with very good speed. Its primary weapons are its shoulder mounted cryo-cannons, that it uses to freeze Kaiju and then shatter the ice. Because of its cryogenic weapons, Horizon Brave has two signature moves: "Flash Freeze" and "Sub Zero Suckerpunch".
Coyote Tango is a Mark I Jaeger, first launched on December 30, 2015. It was the second Japanese Jaeger to be constructed after Tacit Ronin. During its time in the PPDC, it had multiple pilots and had gained two confirmed kills.
On May 15, 2016, the Kaiju, Onibaba, had attacked Tokyo and was chasing a young girl named, Mako Mori through the streets. The Kaiju would have killed her had Tango not have been deployed. During the fight, one of the pilots, Tasmin Sevier had blacked out, forcing the co-pilot, Stacker Pentecost to finish the fight solo. After the battle, both pilots were retired due to radiation sickness.
Coyote Tango would be deployed again to assist Tacit Ronin on June 21, 2016 when the Kaiju, Itak, had surfaced. It was to hold the Kaiju until Ronin's pilots could recover. During its battle with Itak, Coyote Tango had been heavily damaged and was unable to assist Tacit Ronin when the Kaiju, Ragnarok, attacked on July 5, 2016.
Later on, Coyote Tango would be assigned new pilots: the Tunari brothers. On October 9, 2021, Coyote Tango would be deployed in Hawaii to assist Striker Eureka in fighting the Kaiju, Ceramander.
On November 6, 2022, Coyote Tango would ultimately be destroyed.
Coyote Tango is built like a naval vessal and attack helicopter in both color and appearance. Like Tacit Ronin, it possesses light armor, allowing for greater movement speed and power. It also comes equipped with two shoulder mounted, long range mortar cannons, allowing Coyote Tango to damage opponents from afar. At 85.3 meters tall (280'), Coyote Tango is tied with Cherno Alpha as the tallest Mark I.
Cherno Alpha is a Mark I Jaeger, first launched in 2015. Piloted by husband and wife Sasha and Aleksis Kaidonovsky, it is one of the toughest and most brutal Jaegers ever built. It was also the last of the Mark I series until 2025. During its time in the PPDC, Cherno Alpha guarded the Russian coast for six years, gaining six kills.
In 2025, Cherno Alpha was one of four remaining Jaegers still active towards the end of the Kaiju War and was taken to the last active Shatterdome in Hong Kong. There, it would guard the coast for eight months while the Coastal Wall was completed. However, a double event would soon occur and Cherno, Crimson Typhoon and Striker Eureka would be deployed. While covering the Miracle Mile, the Kaiju, Otachi, had made itself known and after briefly clashing with Crimson Typhoon, Otachi was thrown in Cherno's direction, allowing it to follow up on the attack but was quickly swatted aside by the Kaiju's tail. With Crimson Typhoon destroyed, Cherno taunted the Kaiju before attacking but was met with a highly corrosive acid. Otachi then bit down on Cherno's right hand, tearing it off, allowing Leatherback to leap onto the Jaeger from behind and tear it apart. It's pilots were killed before they could drown. Cherno Alpha was the only Jaeger that required two Kaiju to take it down, indicating how tough it really was.
Cherno Alpha is a brutal war machine, bring one of the oldest, heaviest and best armored Jaegers. However its armor would make it one of the slowest. It is built for melee combat which is why its fists are its deadliest weapon. Before fighting, Cherno will taunt a Kaiju by repeatedly smashing its fists together. Because its fists are powered by Tesla Cells, smashing the fists together will increase the charge. Cherno's hands also come equipped with a device called the Roll of Nickels, increasing its already high punching power. Its fists are also spring loaded. What also makes Cherno Alpha unique is that its conn pod is located in the heart of the Jaeger, decreasing the risk of it being attacked. However, it lacks escape pods but it goes with Russian customs as Russian Rangers fight or die trying.
Gipsy DangerGipsy Danger
is a Mark III Jaeger, first launched on July 10, 2017. Like Cherno Alpha
was one of the oldest Jaegers in the service but it was still a brutal fighter, gaining four kills in four years. Originally piloted by Yancy and Raleigh Beckett, Gipsy
was one of the best Jaegers the PPDC had to offer.
On February 29, 2020, Gipsy was deployed to intercept the Kaiju, Knifehead on the coast of Alaska resulting in Yancy being killed. This forced Raleigh to finish the fight alone and get the Jaeger back to shore. Due to Gipsy being heavily damaged, it was taken to Oblivion Bay in Oakland, California where it would stay until it was restored by Mako Mori in 2023.
In 2025, Gipsy Danger and its surviving pilot, Raleigh Beckett, were taken to Hong Kong where Raleigh would be given a new co-pilot. After the Kaiju, Otachi and Leatherback had invaded Hong Kong, only the Jaeger, Striker Eureka remained and would have been destroyed had Gipsy not been deployed with Mako as the new co-pilot. After a brutal fight, Gipsy had managed to kill Leatherback using its plasma cannons to blast off Leatherback's left arm as well as destroy its insides as Raleigh Beckett had learned that some Kaiju could play dead. As for Otachi, Gipsy had used its coolant to destroy the Kaiju's tail and then proceeded to rip out its acid sac. Gipsy was then taken skyward. As Otachi began to breach the upper atmosphere, Gipsy had deployed her new chain sword weapons and sliced Otachi in half while Gipsy landed safely back in the city.
Gipsy Danger would then take part in Operation Pitfall where it would aid Striker Eureka in destroying the Breach. However, the Kaiju, Scunner and Raiju attacked in unison with Raiju ripping off Gipsy's right arm while Scunner crippled the right leg. Gipsy retaliated by burning Scunner's face in a hydrothermal vent and bisecting Raiju. Despite being crippled, Gipsy attempted to aid Striker but its payload was detonated in order to have Gipsy destroy the Breach. As it carried the remains of Raiju, Gipsy was confronted by a critically injured Slattern. Gipsy then attacked the Kaiju, killing it and riding it into the Breach where Mako would be ejected while Raleigh would start the self destruct countdown. As Beckett ejected, Gipsy's nuclear reactor had reached critical levels, resulting in its destruction while destroying the Breach, ending the Kaiju War.
In order to combat the Kaiju, Gipsy has two plasma cannons built into its hands. The damage output would depend on how long a shot was charged. It has two rockets in its back that allow it to gain limited air time in order to rapidly close the distance on an opponent. Because it is a Mark III, Gipsy Danger is powered by a nuclear reactor as shown by the nuclear vortex engine in its chest which can burn through any Kaiju's hide when close enough as well use its coolant as an extra weapon. Being nuclear powered, Gipsy Danger is also analog, making it completely immune to the effects of EMP. When engaging a Kaiju at close range, Gipsy has rockets built into its arms, called elbow rockets, maximizing the damage output. After being restored, Gipsy had gained two chain swords that could be used as either solid blades or whips.
Crimson Typhoon is a Mark IV Jaeger, first launched on August 22, 2018. It is a three man rig, piloted by the Wei Tang brothers; triplets. This means that two pilots would control the body while the third would operate the weapons. Because of its high precision fighting style, Typhoon had successfully defended Hong Kong seven times.
In 2025, Crimson Typhoon was one of four remaining Jaegers. During the double event, it was sent with Cherno Alpha to hold the Miracle Mile off Hong Kong. It was also the first Jaeger of the group to face Otachi, using its Thundercloud Formation. This resulted in one of its hands being crushed, losing its advantage and forcing the Jaeger to have the Kaiju face Cherno. Typhoon attempted to attack again but its pilots had disregarded the tail which Otachi then used to crush the conn pod and rip off of the body.
Crimson Typhoon is a Jaeger built for fast, precise strikes. Its fighting style is reminiscent to that of a martial artist. It also has three rear jets on its back, allowing Typhoon to increase the speed of its strikes as well as gain limited air time. Typhoons signature fighting style is the "Thundercloud Formation" in which it activates the saw function on its arms and rips open any Kaiju. Crimson Typhoon also has the built in ability to turn its lower body 180 degrees.
Striker EurekaStriker Eureka
is a Mark V Jaeger, first launched on November 2, 2019. It was also the last Jaeger to be built, making it the first and last of its kind. Piloted by father and son, Herc and Chuck Hansen, it was the strongest and fastest Jaeger the PPDC had at the time. During its time in the Kaiju war, Striker Eureka
had managed to gain the most Kaiju kills before 2025, being nine.
Striker Eureka had been deployed to many locations, either fighting solo or part of a team. Its first mission was in Hawaii, where it fought alongside Coyote Tango against the Kaiju, Ceramander. In 2025 however, the Jaeger Program had been deactivated in favor of the Coastal Wall Program, and Striker Eureka, along with all surviving Jaegers, was decommissioned. A day later, the Kaiju, Mutavore broke through the wall in Sydney, Australia. Striker confronted the Kaiju, quickly killing it.
It was taken to the last Shatterdome in Hong Kong where Marshall Stacker Pentecost had planned to use Striker for one last assault on the Breach. It had a 2,400 pound thermonuclear bomb attached to its back in the hopes that it would destroy the portal. During a double event, Striker, along with Crimson Typhoon and Cherno Alpha were deployed to stop the Kaiju, Otachi and Leatherback. However, Otachi had destroyed Crimson Typhoon and critically damaged Cherno Alpha before engaging Striker as it attempted to save the pilots but before Striker could kill Otachi, it was disabled by Leatherback's EMP blast. As Otachi made its way into Hong Kong, Leatherback stayed behind and circled Striker, resulting in Herc's arm being broken. Both Hansen's then fired flares into Leatherbacks eyes, enraging the Kaiju. Striker would have been destroyed had it not been for Gipsy Danger being deployed.
After being repaired and now co-piloted by Stacker Pentecost, both Striker and Gipsy commenced Operation Pitfall. Despite circling the Jaegers as they approached the Breach, Raiju and Scunner stopped as the Kaiju, Slattern appeared. While Gipsy fought off Scunner and Raiju, Striker fought the much larger Sattern, resulting in it unable to deliver its payload. Despite being dwarfed by the Category V Kaiju, Striker was still a match as it nearly tore off Slattern's arms, forcing it to call the surviving Scunner to its aid. Not seeing any way out, Stacker and Chuck detonated the payload, clearing a path for Gipsy, killing Scunner and critically injuring Slattern.
Striker Eureka was easily the fastest and strongest Jaeger during the Kaiju War. Its fighting style is similar to that of a dirty boxer, making it very brutal when up close. Its punches are made stronger due to a brass steel alloy that is temperature resistant, resembling brass knuckles. Striker also comes equipped with Sting Blades that it can use to slice open any Kaiju. The blades can also reach temperatures of over 300 degrees Fahrenheit, cauterizing any wound inflicted. Finally, Striker has six anti Kaiju missile launchers in its chest, capable of killing Kaiju with direct hits.
After the Kaiju War, the PPDC had built itself back up and the Jaeger Program was reactivated. This resulted in newer, more advanced Jaegers being created and the world was ever watchful, preparing for the day when the Kaiju would inevitably return.
Bracer Phoenix is a Mark V Jaeger, first launched on November 1, 2025. Like with Crimson Typhoon, Bracer Phoenix is a three man rig, with two pilots operating the body while the third would operate the weapons. It was presumably based in China, where it would earn the nickname, "The Shanghai Sheild".
Bracer Phoenix would not be used until after the Drone attack, in which it was only one of four Jaegers that were not incapacitated. Before facing the Kaiju, Hakuja, Raijin and Shrikethorn, it was outfitted with Titan Redeemer's mace. After the Jaeger's had arrived in Tokyo, Bracer Phoenix would aid Gipsy Avenger in fighting Raijin but after the latter had been swatted away, Bracer Phoenix fired a barrage of missiles. Unfortunately, the missiles did little damage and Bracer Phoenix was backhanded through several buildings, crashing into Guardian Bravo. The Jaeger would rejoin the fight to aid Saber Athena, who had been disarmed by Shrikethorn and was now cornered by Hakuja. It activated its centrifugal vortex cannons and fired on Shrikethorn, allowing Guardian Bravo to attack Hakuja, who attempted to ambush Phoenix from behind but the Jaeger was ready and rotated its cannons to its back and continued to fire.
After the trio had combined into the Mega Kaiju, the Jaegers fired everything they had but were knocked back. Guardian Bravo and Saber Athena had already been destroyed by the Mega Kaiju, leaving only Bracer Phoenix and Gipsy Avenger. Thinking fast, Bracer Phoenix attacked using its Morning Star and landed a direct hit on the Mega Kaiju's face, breaking one of its tusks. It followed up by biting down of Phoenix's chest and then proceeded to rip the Jaeger's limbs off. Its pilots, Amara Namani, Ou-Yang Jinhai and Viktoriya Malikova however, had managed to jettison in time.
Bracer Phoenix is one of the oldest Jaegers of the new generation, but is still able to keep up with the VI's. It is heavily armored yet still agile enough to avoid most attacks. Bracer Phoenix's most prominent weapons are its central Vortex Cannons; twin mounted machine guns that can inflict major damage but are hazardous to the surrounding environment. Its gunner pod and weapons are designed to rotate 180 degrees without the Jaeger having to turn around, lowering the risk of being attacked from behind. Bracer Phoenix also comes equipped with Anti-Kaiju missiles that fire out of its legs and shoulders. After the destruction of Titan Redeemer, Bracer Phoenix's right arm had been replaced with its M-19 Morning Star, further increasing its physical power.
Guardian Bravo is a Mark VI Jaeger, first launched on December 15, 2033. It is one of the smaller Jaegers of the new fleet but it is still a deadly combatant.
Guardian Bravo was one of four Jaegers that intercepted the Kaiju, Raijin, Shrikethorn and Hakuja in Tokyo. As it closed the distance on Shrikethorn, it was knocked to the ground by Bracer Phoenix after the latter had been swatted through multiple buildings. It then recovered to assist Saber Athena, activating its Elec-16 whips, electrocuting Hakuja before slamming it through a building. As Hakuja tunneled away, its pilots, Ilya and Shuresh Khuran, mocked the Kaiju and then proceeded to taunt it.
After the trio fused into the Mega Kaiju, the Jaegers fired everything they had but had been knocked back due to the Mega Kaiju generating a massive shockwave. Guardian Bravo was the only Jaeger to land on its feet and despite being told to stay back, Ilya insisted that he and Shuresh had the situation under control. Guardian charged forward and aimed its whip at the Mega Kaiju's face but it caught the whip and slammed Guardian Bravo through multiple buildings before throwing it aside. The force of the impact killed Shuresh, leaving Ilya without a co-pilot, leaving Guardian Bravo inactive.
Guardian Bravo is made for long range combat. The burst foil on its back enable it to aid the speed of its movements over short distances. It possesses arm mounted machine guns that enable it to damage enemies as it closes in. However, Guardian's best weapons are its Elec-16 whips. These whips are made from an unbreakable material and are the successors to Gipsy Avenger's chain swords. They are capable of doing considerable damage to an opponent, delivering painful shocks.
Saber AthenaSaber Athena
is a Mark VI Jaeger, first launched on December 20, 2033. It is the sleekest, fastest, and most elegant Jaeger ever made. It also has a design invoking femininity as it is thinner than the other Jaegers.
As one of four surviving Jaegers sent to fight in Tokyo, Saber Athena was the first Jaeger to engage the Kaiju, slashing Hakuja's shoulders and kicking it away. As it continued fighting, Shrikethorn had fired several barbs from its tails, landing direct hits and disarming Saber Athena, allowing Hakuja to corner it, forcing its pilots, Renata and Ryiochi to call for help. Bracer Phoenix helped by firing on Shrikethorn and Guardian Bravo freed Saber. With Bracer Phoenix fighting Hakuja, Saber Athena engaged Shrikethorn.
When the Mega Kaiju had formed, Saber Athena combined its twinblades but had been knocked back with all the other Jaegers. After Guardian Bravo had been disabled and Gipsy Avenger had been swatted away, Saber Athena had managed to run up the Kaiju's back and destroy one of its secondary brains. Before it could attack again, the Mega Kaiju destroyed Saber Athena's legs and stabbed it through the back before tossing it aside.
Saber Athena is said to be an experimental Mark VII Jaeger with an ultra light frame. Because of its sleek design, Saber Athena is one of if not the most agile of the Jaeger's, capable of executing high jumps as well as acrobatic leaps. Its primary weapons are a pair of Ionic Twinblades, sword like weapons that it can use to combine in order to form a much larger weapon. It also contains particle chargers located in its hands.
Gipsy AvengerGipsy Avenger
is a Mark VI Jaeger, first launched on January 24, 2034. It is the flagship of the new fleet as it takes on the likeness of its predecessor as a symbol of hope. Its pilots are Nate Lambert and Jake Pentecost, son of legendary hero, Stacker Pentecost.
This Jaeger had the most prominent role in Pacific Rim Uprising. It was first deployed in Sydney to, "Stand there and look pretty," for the public during the PPDC's meeting on whether or not Drone Jaegers should be used. However, when a rogue Jaeger emerged from Sydney Bay and began attacking the populace, Gipsy was forced to fight but was easily overpowered. The rogue Jaeger then shot down the chopper carrying Secretary General, Mako Mori and Gipsy attempted to save her but failed. Before she died, Mako had sent a cryptic message to the potential whereabouts of the unidentified Jaeger, codenamed, Obsidian Fury.Gipsy
was then sent to the coordinates in Mako's message, revealing an abandoned Jaeger production facility where she encountered Obsidian Fury
again. Their fight was brief but brutal as Gipsy
ripped Obsidian Fury's
power core out of its body and removed the face of the conn pod, revealing a Kaiju brain.
After Raijin, Hakuja and Shrikethorn arrived in Tokyo, Gipsy led the attack in facing Raijin but was knocked back due to the Kaiju's ability to absorb and redirect kinetic energy. Gipsy then began downing buildings on Raijin as it advanced but had little effect. The attack however, did manage to keep Raijin down for a while.
Once the trio had combined into the Mega Kaiju, the Jaeger's began firing everything they had, only for the Mega Kaiju to knock them back. It was the last Jaeger standing after Guardian Bravo, Saber Athena and Bracer Phoenix had been destroyed. Gipsy fought back using Obsidian Fury's chainsaws and plasma cannons but Nate had been injured when the Mega Kaiju pierced the conn pod with its tails. With Nate unable to fight, Amara Namani took over and with Liwen Shao piloting the much smaller Scrapper, she had attached a thruster pack to Gipsy's hand, allowing the Jaeger to fly into the upper atmosphere. Upon reentry, Gipsy had collided with the Mega Kaiju, killing it before it could enter Mt. Fuji.
Like Gipsy Danger
, Gipsy Avenger
comes equipped with similar weapons such as twin chain swords, later replaced with Obsidian Fury's
plasma chainsaws. It also possesses a plasma cannon seen in its left hand and elbow rockets. However, Gipsy
has a weapon unique to it: the Gravity Sling. This weapon allows Gipsy Avenger
to create a gravitational field around any object, allowing it to use virtually anything as a weapon against an opponent.
Obsidian Fury is the code name given to this Jaeger as its true name is unknown. Despite its official Mark number being unknown, it can be assumed that it is similar to the Mark VI's. Unlike the other Jaegers, Obsidian Fury is an enemy to humanity.
Obsidian Fury first appeared rising out of Sydney Harbor and began attacking the populace. This forced Gipsy Avenger to fight it but the Jaeger was easily overpowered by Obsidian Fury's brutality. During the battle, Obsidian Fury had managed to shoot down the chopper carrying Mako Mori, with the crash killing her. It then disappeared beneath Sydney Harbor before it could be captured.
Before she died, Mako had sent an incomplete message that was eventually decoded by the PPDC. It marked the location of an abandoned Jaeger production facility in Siberia and Gipsy Avenger was sent in to investigate. Just as soon as Pentecost and Lambert could identify what was happening, Obsidian Fury appeared again, destroying the facility in an attempt to cover its tracks. Both Jaegers fought again, this time, with Gipsy emerging as the victor, slashing it across the chest, slowing it down, stabbing it in the leg and neck before ripping out its power core. Its pilots were told to exit the conn pod but upon removing the face, there was only a Kaiju brain. It was taken back to the PPDC to be analyzed but Amara Namani had discovered that the wiring that had kept the Kaiju's brain intact had belonged to Shao Industries.
Obsidian Fury is said to be the most powerful Jaeger. Instead of being created by the PPDC, it was in fact, made in secret by Dr. Newton Geiszler, under the influence of the Precursors, using the technology owned by Shao Industries. This is a Jaeger that is built for battle. Its shielding is made from Obsidian chrome, has clawed fingers, can fire missiles from its shoulders and arm mounted guns. It also comes equipped with signal jammers located on its spine, which it can use to disrupt communications. Finally, Obsidian Fury's deadliest weapons are its Particle Charger located in its chest and twin Plasma Chainsaws that rival Gipsy Avenger's Chain Swords.
The Jaegers are the best weapons humanity has if the Kaiju are to be completely eradicated. Ever since the last battle, humanity has been preparing to take the fight to the Precursors and end the war once and for all, not just for the sake of our world, but other worlds as well. It's just like Beckett said, "There are things you can't fight; acts of God. You see a hurricane coming, you have to get out of the way. But when you're in a Jaeger, suddenly you can fight the hurricane, and win."
