** You could even throw in Raleigh, to some extant, since she's felt the pain of the loss of Yancy in the drift. Which becomes rather Heartwarming if you think that Mako now considers Raleigh her family.

* The Kwoon Fight between Mako and Raleigh
** The fight ends when Mako takes Raleigh down with a 4 to 3 win, showing how compatible they are as fighters. Considering that Raleigh had been outclassing everyone he fought with this is awesome all on it's own, but it's even better when you consider the FridgeBrilliance of Mako's tactics.
*** The first thing Raleigh says to her is "Remember, it's a dialogue, not a fight." And then Mako proceeds to ''let'' him score with a strike to her head and then quickly responds with a defense and strike to ''his'' head, as in "Hi, nice to meet you" to "Hi, nice to meet you too." Then she deliberately braces and does not defend against his next strike against her hip and ''out of nowhere'' begins to actually fight and parry and ''repeats'' the strike against his head - even better, you can see Raleigh's visible frustration like "Oops, underestimated here." And then they go all out and she ends up ''flipping'' him and landing a strike ''back'' at his head and this time you can see his ''awe.'' At this point, Raleigh actually flips her back they go full tilt and you can see Raleigh is actually visibly working this time to keep up as he has not had to do with any other opponent until Mako takes him down ''again'' and Raleigh declares them drift compatible. What makes this Mako so brilliant? Not only did she take Raleigh's advice about dialogue vs fight, she actually used Raleigh's own tactics against him. The thing that originally got her on the mat with him? ''Her frustration that he could have taken all of them '''two''' moves sooner.'' Since she didn't actually defend against the first few strikes, Raleigh only actually scored '''one''' legitimate point.

* When Otachi ambushes Gypsy in Hong Kong, she bursts out of a building with mirrored-glass windows. All the other buildings nearby have obvious lighted windows, which would have gone dark from power outage if Otachi had tried the same trick with any of them. She, or at least the HiveMind that directed her, may have been a ''lot'' smarter than anyone realized, to choose the one building that wouldn't give her position away.

** And what is to say Kaiju won't eat any sealife in the ocean as well?

* The Kaiju are confirmed to have a digestive system, presumably need a huge amount of food, and target population centers. [[ImAHumanitarian This says quite a bit about their eating habits.]]

* In Mako's memory of the Tokyo attack, little-Mako's every gasp and whimper seems ''very'' loud in comparison to the background noise of rampaging kaiju, which can seem like over-the-top Narm at first. However, it's a great indicator that the memory is from ''her'' point of view: vocal sounds always seem a bit louder to the person who makes them, and hears them resonating within their own head, than to nearby listeners. We're literally hearing her desperate breaths as if we were that terrified little girl.

** Unfortunately this would be pretty easy for the Masters to counter: just reprogram the gate so it only opens for ''living'' Kaiju. Or make it reject metal. Or make it password-protected. More likely than not, ItOnlyWorksOnce.
