* ThreeDMovie: Post converted. [[http://www.comingsoon.net/news/movienews.php?id=95084 But del Toro has worked his hardest to make sure the 3D is good]] by having the full 40 week conversion. All of the big Kaiju/Jaeger fight scenes were rendered in native 3D, however.

** The Kaiju all emerge from a known undersea location at predictable intervals, yet the Jaegers are spread all around the world to intercept them at the coast instead of focusing on that one spot. It isn't like it's beyond their mechanical capabilities, we see them fight there later in the movie. For that matter their are no static defenses or obstacles in place there either, not even naval mines; after nuking it failed to close the portal they basically left an automated listening station and otherwise abandoned the idea.

* 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]]''.

* AlienBlood: The Kaiju have toxic blue acidic blood. The art book ''Man, Machines and Monsters'' implies that the colour was a deliberate choice to make the film more kid-friendly.
