*** Newt's introduction was originally longer with him and Raleigh antagonizing one another.
*** Another cut scene focuses Chuck and his father Herc after the fight between Chuck and Raleigh. Herc chastises Chuck for his behavior only for Chuck to retaliate by claiming that Herc was a bad or at least often absent father and saying that they wouldn't have anything to do with each other at all if it weren't for their drift compatibility. Without this scene Stacker's line about Chuck having "daddy issues" becomes more random and ultimately makes Chuck a less sympathetic character than he could have been.

* BoxOfficeBomb: [[SubvertedTrope Subverted]]. It did not do well domestically taking in [[http://boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=pacificrim.htm $101 million on a $190 million budget]], with every sign of it. However the overseas market unexpectedly pulled in $309 million with a huge $111 million return from China coming as a complete surprise. Including marketing and the less profitable ratios for overseas releases though means [[DoubleSubversion it still didn't become profitable in theaters]]. Did not stop the [[FIlm/PacificRimUprising sequel]] from getting the green light, though.

** Writer Travis Beacham came up with the idea that Rinko Kikuchi's character Mako Mori was going to speak entirely in Japanese for the first half of the movie and her partner Raleigh wouldn't understand her. Then when they finally got their connection calibrated in the Jaeger he would hear her in English. Despite him seeing it as a good idea, he realised it would have been a chore to have the two leads speaking in different languages for the first half of the movie.

** One of the earlier outlines had less diversity, with the Russian, Chinese and Australians swapped out for more Japanese pilots and the Shatterdome being in Japan. Also, Knifehead's death was going to be more akin to [[spoiler:[[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion Shinji blacking out and Eva 01 going berserk]]]]

* BigNameFan: Although the film was relatively unsuccessful in Japan, many big names of the mecha/kaiju genres loved it, particularly Creator/GoNagai (''Manga/MazingerZ''), Yoshiyuki Sadamoto (''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion'', ''Anime/GunBuster''), Creator/HideoKojima (''VideoGame/ZoneOfTheEnders'') and Fumito Ueda (''VideoGame/ShadowOfTheColossus''). Ironically, Sadamoto's colleague Creator/HideakiAnno found it "not so interesting", though he admitted the things he finds interesting would be very have been difficult to do in live action cinema.
