He even mentioned that he based the Jaeger, Cherno Alpha, from the mobile suit, Zaku.

Critically acclaimed filmmaker and author from Mexico, widely known for his work on the SpeculativeFiction genre. He is perhaps best recognized by moviegoers as director of the ''Film/{{Hellboy}}'' film series, as well as his best-received film, ''PansLabyrinth''.

* ProductionPosse: His movies tend to have Creator/RonPerlman, Luke Goss, and/or Doug Jones; ''Film/{{Hellboy}} II'' featured all three of them in notable roles. The cinematography is usually done by Guillermo Navarro and Marco Beltrami scores most of his films. He also collaborates frequently with Mike Mignola and Creator/WayneBarlowe on the visual aspect of his work. And finally, his friend Santiago Segura often has a DeathByCameo in his films.

* AwesomeMcCoolname: His works tend to have lots of these. Reaches it's height at Pacific Rim, where almost every named character has an impossibly cool name (probably an homage to ''Gundam's'' unusual character names).

* LonelyRichKid: His father won the Mexican lottery when he was little, built a Chrystler dealership empire from the money, and Guillermo was living in a gigantic mansion by the time he was seven. He said if his sister wasn't around, he could have genuinely died of boredom as a child in that place.

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: It was rumored that he was approached to direct the upcoming Godzilla [[{{Film/Godzilla2014}} remake]] (which is actually being directed by Creator/GarethEdwards), though Guillermo has since debunked those rumors.
** He ''was'' offered the HarryPotter movies (specifically ''[[Literature/HarryPotterAndThePrisonerOfAzkaban Prisoner of Azkaban]]'' and ''[[Literature/HarryPotterAndTheHalfBloodPrince Half-Blood Prince]]'') but turned them down since he felt the movies didn't jibe with his dark vision of the Potterverse. He is a fan of the books however, and was the one who encouraged Creator/AlfonsoCuaron to direct ''[=PoA=]''.
