* 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?

Kaiju aren't human, so them eating people isn't Im A Humanitarian
* 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.

** Even after death, Jaeger pilots are stated to often Ghost-Drift with each other, as shown with Raleigh and his brother. Herc has been piloting with his son for over ''five'' years... and [[spoiler: Chuck is now dead.]] It's very likely that Herc will be seeing his [[spoiler: dead child]] on regular basis, but only in his mind and the Ghost-Drift.

* Pentecost's last words to Mako are "You can always find me in the Drift!" It's a heartwarming reminder that he'll be there for her when she needs him--it also makes sense as more than a metaphorical statement because as we've seen earlier, Mako gives in to chasing the RABIT when Drifting, going back into her memories. On top of that, Geiszler and later Gottlieb have shown that it's possible to drift outside of a Jaeger, so it's entirely possible that, if she needs his presence, she can purposefully chase the RABIT in a safer Drift setting to be with him.

** To add further insult, Raleigh wound up working on the Wall project, which was just proven ineffective since Chuck had to use Striker Eureka to take out the kaiju that breached the Sydney wall. To Chuck, Raleigh is a reminder that the Jaeger program is being scrapped in favor of a worthless publicity stunt.

* The Drift makes it so that co-pilots while in the Drift don't really need to communicate since they are in each others heads. So when Yancy is KilledMidSentence at the start of the film, you would think that his last words were echoed in Raleigh's mind. Only, sometimes our minds get so scrambled we need to speak in order to organize them; chances are, Raleigh could only guess at what his brother wanted to say to him. Yancy could have wanted to say anything along the lines of pride, regret, reassurance--maybe even all of these things and more at once. Raleigh may have some semblance of what Yancy wanted to say to him--after all, the sentiment is there, and the connection is empathic--but the fact that Yancy never got to vocalize these thoughts to Raleigh is another painful reminder of how brutally Yancy was taken from him.

* It seems a bit awfully convenient that Leatherback doesn't attack Striker Eureka right after crippling it with his EMP generator. It's probable that he thought Striker was "dead" and didn't understand that Jaegers are actually controlled by humans. After all, we have seen Kaijus aim for the Jaegers' heads or torsos, techniques wich make more sense for a living being than for a machine.
