* DesecratingTheDead: After downing the Kaiju Leatherback, Raleigh "checks for a pulse" by unloading several rounds into the corpse to the point where its chest cracks open and ''starts disintegrating''.

* AbsurdlyIneffectiveBarricade: In a scaled up (and serious) version: the Wall, the "viable alternative" the Jaeger program was scrapped in favor of. It breaks in less than an hour under the assault of a single Kaiju, and later on, we're introduced to a Kaiju [[spoiler:that can ''fly'' and spit acid. At the end class 5 Kaiju start coming through that are twice as tall as the class 4s, making the wall literally waist-high]].

* NaturalSpotlight: Though not sunlight, del Toro was determined to keep the light sources diegetic in nature. Hence, the large number of helicopters flying around during battle scenes, and large lights on the Jaeger themselves. Raleigh even asks a nearby chopper if it has a visual on the nearby Kaiju at one point, which neatly explains what they're there for.

* LightEqualsHope: Shared with CueTheSun and EmpathicEnvironment. From the moment we see the Beckett brothers go into battle for the first time, the weather is inclement: snow, rain, monsoons, etc. Only after Raleigh and Mako score a decisive victory against the Kaiju does the sun finally come out -- now that humanity has hope to survive.

** Gipsy Danger's sword [[EleventhHourSuperpower is suddenly revealed]] at the end of the fight with Otachi. We see it deployed again in the final battle outside the Breach, before another Kaiju rips the arm off. But the left arm had the sword in it the first time, and the second time, the right arm had the sword. Both arms have swords, and Gipsy is far from defenseless.

* {{DeathByIrony}}: The {{Kaiju}} Otachi is translated into "great sword". [[spoiler:It gets slain by the debut of Gipsy Danger's sword]].

** Leatherback also takes a flare to the eye, though since he's a Kaiju it doesn't do much more than annoy him.

** The first thing Gipsy does against both Leatherback and Otachi is to neutralize their new weapons by physically yanking off the organs containing them, Leatherback's EMP device and Otachi's acid-spitting sacs.

** PlayedWith at the end of Gipsy Danger's fight with Otachi. [[Raleigh laments that they're out of options, and Mako replies they have something left, and hits a button on the console. Gipsy's computer calmly announces "Sword deploying."]]
