** [[spoiler: Raleigh was left a near-basked case for years because he was Drifting with Yancy when his brother died. Imagine what it was like for ''the last of the Wei triplets to die'', who had to feel '''both''' his brothers' deaths!]]

** Even worse: imagine being one of the test subjects who volunteered for the initial rounds of ''solo'' Drift research, knowing that practically everyone who's done it before you has had their brain fried.

* Though they're not intended to be sympathetic, some of the Kaiju die in drawn-out and gruesome ways that can be hard to watch. Leatherback gets its skull battered repeatedly and finally drops dead after its body cavity is blasted until it bursts open like a grape. Otachi has both its tail shattered and its venom sack forcefully ripped out, and lets out a chilling shriek as it's decapitated. Otachi's offspring is too premature to survive on its own and has nightmarish, bloodshot eyes. It's both sad and horrific to see that giant, half-formed fetus trying to kill humans, only to be strangled to death by its own umbilical cord. Then there's Raiju who [[spoiler: gets vivisected by Gipsy's Chain sword]] and Slattern who [[spoiler: has his innards roasted by Gipsy's Nuclear Turbine]]. Of all the Kaiju, the one who had the most merciful death was Scunner who got [[spoiler: vaporized by the thermonuclear bomb on Striker]].

** It gets worse: [[spoiler:Yancy]] and Raleigh were still neural-linked when [[spoiler:the former died.]] Raleigh literally [[spoiler:felt the terror and agony of Yancy's final moments; he ''felt Yancy's death as if it were his own, and saw himself through his brother's eyes''.]] Can you even begin to imagine what that must have felt like, what it did to his mind?

Keep in mind that there is also a good chance that Yancy was ''eaten alive'' by the Kaiju.

** As noted on the {{Fridge Horror}} page, it's not just humans the Kaiju are affecting. While they were [[spoiler: created to destroy humanity]], the impact they have on the Ocean's environment must be a thousand times worse. Coral reefs and Kelp forests cover thousands of square miles of the Pacific. A single Kaiju could cause irreversible damage just by ''stepping on them''. There are also specific breeding grounds some species migrate to, such as California Sea Lions, that have probably become contaminated with Kaiju blue. Hundreds of species may have gone extinct during the Kaiju war, resulting in food chain depletion and starvation for millions.

** I just wanted to chime in that if you watch the opening of the movie when Knifehead is attacking you can actually see Raleigh's torso be burned by the circuitry on his suit shorting out. Later on he takes his shirt off and you can see the same pattern imprinted in his skin.

** If I remember right, the novelization mentions that the scars are burns from where the circuitry overheats and burns it's pattern into the skin (and the deleted [[ShirtlessScene scene where Idris Elba struts around half-naked]] shows his scars are very uniform and circuitry-like). Also, I think Raleigh's armor was torn open and blood spattered when he stumbled out of Gipsy Danger.
