A list of the Progenitor kaiju from the Kickstarter and first three rounds of votes, who had a chance of being featured in future releases following Fall of Nemesis. Due to CKC being indefinitely postponed as of 2017, the Progenitor kaiju from the third, fourth, and fifth voting rounds were not developed. For the main index of all Colossal Kaiju Combat kaiju, click here.



  • The Comically Serious: Giant chicken-like alien that perceives herself very seriously.
  • Clucking Funny: Looks like a giant chicken. Acts nothing like one.
  • Dishing Out Dirt: Spits out stones from her mouth.
  • Dude, Where's My Respect?: Her chicken-like appearance and inability to communicate with others often results in dismissal and ridicule, much to her chagrin.
  • Fighting Clown: Despite her chicken-like appearance, she is a gladiator kaiju and every bit as formidable as that sounds.
  • Gender Bender: Meta Example. Had her gender changed after being male for a while.
  • Giant Flyer: Can fly for a short amount of time.
  • Gladiator Games: Despite her appearance, she's a professional gladiator.

  • Blood Knight: Constructed to fight a war and never stopped fighting.
  • Body Horror: To a minor extent of having muscles big enough to tear his skin in places.
  • Cyborg: With a mostly biological upper body and four mechanical legs.
  • Glowing Mechanical Eyes: His left eye is cybernetic, the glow of it matching the rest of his augmentations.
  • Gone Horribly Wrong: He won the war he was made for, but then Turned Against His Masters and wiped out all life on Burria Prime.
  • Nothing Personal: He doesn't actually feel any hatred or malice to anyone in particular, he's just a machine meant for beating the crap out of things and killing them.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: One of his modes uses a red colour, causing it to become this trope.
  • Stance System: Transforms between his neutral form to regain energy, and either a combo-based brawling form, powerful grappling one or long-ranged bombardment one.
  • Swiss Army Hero: Can switch between several modes of combat,
  • Transforming Mecha: Has several modes that he can switch between to alter his fighting style, altering his stance and changing the colours on his cybernetics.
  • Where I Was Born and Razed: He is the last being on Burria Prime on account of destroying everything else.

  • Cast from Hit Points: He can recharge his energy by taking damage, although doing so when his energy is full backfires on him.
  • Cool Mask: On his technological side.
  • Dual Mode Unit: Can flip over to switch between his magical and technological sides.
  • Gatling Good: His arms for his more technological side.
  • Humongous Mecha: With a generous definition of "mecha," but the principle is the same.
  • Lost Superweapon: Mystical body found heavily damaged and inoperable in India, the broken bits replaced with modern technology.
  • Magitek: Mystical entity augmented with technological components.
  • The Magic Versus Technology War: Subverted; as opposed to a conflict, this kaiju presents it more like a duality, one side more mystical and other more technological.
  • Mysterious Past: How Gandiva was broken and his history beforehand is unknown.
  • Remote Body: He's mostly autonomous, but he can be controlled via remote when needed.
  • We Can Rebuild Him: Much of his body was destroyed before he was found, which was then replaced with modern weapons.


    Scaos: The Sinkeeper 
  • And I Must Scream: Both metaphorically (due to being forced to eat negative emotions forever) and literally. He wears a muzzle to prevent him from unleashing his psychic powers. If his muzzle is removed, he can channel the negativity within himself into a powerful attack called "Cry of Despair."
  • Attack Deflector: His shackles can act like this when they have enough energy.
  • Ax-Crazy: His mind is filled to the bursting point with negativity, so it goes without saying that his first impulse is not to cuddle fluffy rabbits.
  • Bondage Is Bad: Though the bondage itself doesn't make him bad. Rather, it's to restrain his evil-mutated body.
  • Captured Super-Entity: He is bound up and locked away so he can't cause harm with his evil-warped body and mind.
  • Emotion Eater: He comes from an "empath species" that feeds on powerful emotions. The Vellians turned him into a dumping ground for the negative emotions of their whole race.
  • Evil Makes You Ugly: Absorbing all the evil and negativity from the Vellians has warped him into a hideous and deadly kaiju.
  • Names to Run Away from Really Fast: Scaos the Sinkeeper. That's right, you better run.
  • Powered by a Forsaken Child: He is the forsaken child powering someone else's utopia.
  • Psychic Powers: Normally locked by his muzzle, but if it were to come off...
  • Red Baron: The Sinkeeper.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: In case the large metallic muzzle immediately below (or, indeed, the rest of him) was enough of a clue.
  • Sealed in a Person-Shaped Can: Serves as the can for the Vellian race.
  • Shout-Out: His backstory may be inspired by The Ones Who Walk Away from Omelas.
  • Sinister Scythe: He has Arm Scythes locked under his shackles, being unable to use them unless they're broken.
  • Some Kind of Force Field: Provided by his shackles as long as they are active.
  • Spikes of Villainy: Has a very projected spine/tail and has other spikes pointing out of his back.
  • Stance System: Goes from a Stone Wall capable of deflecting and even reflecting blows using his shackles to a Glass Cannon capable of shredding opponents with lethal natural scythes and devastating blasts of negative energy. There is an intermediary state of weakness in-between the two if the shackles run out of power before being broken, where Scaos can neither use their defensive capabilities nor unleash his full offensive arsenal.
  • Tortured Monster: His backstory. The poor guy is used to dispose of all the negative emotions of the Vellians, a process which drove him insane. To top it off, he is also imprisoned.


  • Humongous Mecha: Made by the British in the 19th century to combat an underwater menace.
  • Lost Technology: Despite winning the war, he lost contact with his British superiors and vanished from history until resurfacing in modern times.
  • Rated M for Manly: Thanks to the Badass Mustache sculpted onto his face.
  • Steampunk: Consists of this, even relying on furnaces to keep it running.
  • Turtle Power: A mechanized steampunk turtle, to be precise.

  • Apocalyptic Log: The last transmissions from the space station, the very last being the phrase "Must not survive."
  • Body Horror: Besides her blob nature, she has a large humanoid skull and spine floating within her, the spine even extending out and serving as a tail.
  • Blob Monster: One that can grow and shrink based on how much mass she absorbs and expends.
  • Came from the Sky/Colony Drop: The space station containing her fell from orbit and crashed into downtown Houston.
  • Dishing Out Dirt: Her artwork displays rocky chunks studding her gelatinous "fists."
  • Freak Lab Accident: The irradiation of a skunk on a space station went haywire when the station was hit by an unknown energy pulse.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: Within the skull floating in the yellow blob are two red eye lights.
  • Rubber Man: Her gelatinous Blob Monster body has a slight degree of elasticity to it.


  • Empowered Badass Normal: Peanut was a massive alligator with a sizable kill count (about two dozen) even before her posthumous resurrection into Grimmgarl.
  • Fluffy the Terrible: As a normal yet ferocious alligator, she was known as "Peanut."
  • Gone Horribly Wrong: Two rivals tried to make her a Voodoo Zombie at the same time. The conflicting magic transformed her into a kaiju.
  • Magical Eye: One of her offensive mystical powers, both damaging and weakening her foes.
  • Raising the Steaks: She's an undead alligator turned into a kaiju.
  • Swamps Are Evil: Well, oversized kaiju zombies from them are, at least.
  • Voodoo Zombie: With two Loa (specifically, Baron Kriminel and Kalfu) whose conflicting nature caused enough magical energy to warp Grimmgarl to her current size.
  • The Undead: Specifically, a Voodoo Zombie gone haywire.


    Hound of Nita 



  • Alien Invasion: Technically just a probe, but given its size and behaviour, the denizens of Earth see little difference.
  • Energy Absorption: Its primary directive is to collect energy from Earth and return home with it. Oh hi, very electrical urban centre...
  • Exactly What It Says on the Tin: Cryx is just shorthand for "Crystalline Xenomorph."
  • Giant Enemy Crab: Not really, though its hands are relatively crab-like.
  • No Biological Sex: It's basically a genderless crystal construct, though it's known as a "he" by observers.
  • Rock Monster: Cryx is a sapient quasi-humanoid of crystal.

  • Bad with the Bone: One way this skeletal kaiju fights is shooting the bone blades that make up her wings.
  • Dem Bones: She is a draconic skeleton-monster.
  • Ghostapo: Ancient bones bound together with technology and infused with dark magic - made by Nazis.
  • Glass Cannon: Despite her power, consisting of ancient bones and long-waterlogged Nazi electronics have not been kind on her structural integrity.
  • Hired Guns: How Eliza Taylors and her crew uses her after learning how she works.
  • Lost Superweapon: Psychically-controlled Nazi skeleton-mecha that was lost at sea near Borneo.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: The mechanical eye-lights give off an orange-red glow.
  • Shock and Awe: She can shoot black lighting as a Breath Weapon.



    Shadow of Red 


  • Anchors Away: His right arm has many anchors hanging off it, serving as the "impact" side of his melee attacks.
  • Big Ol' Eyebrows: Doesn't technically have them, but his eye slots are shaped into this general aesthetic.
  • Cool Boat: His "bones" consist of this, especially the ones sticking out of his head, including the namesake "Angel of Gijón." He also has an icebreaker as his left hand.
  • Gone Horribly Wrong: The oil-eating seaweed worked well enough, but it intermingled with a particularly nasty strain of ship-sinking seaweed, the absorbed oil producing enough energy to form a rudimentary intelligence in the process.
  • Plant Person: More like "Plant Kaiju," but still a humanoid mass of seaweed.
  • Sea Monster: Aggressive, ship-sinking seaweed intermingled with oil-eating seaweed with a skeleton made of the aforementioned sunk ships.
  • Slippery Skid: Can leave globs of seaweed around to cause this effect.
  • Sticky Situation: Can shoot oil at his foes to this effect. Given that he also eats oil, this is his equivalent of soaking his foe in BBQ sauce.

  • Bat Out of Hell: Her head and wings carry this general aesthetic.
  • Gender Bender: Both through Identity Amnesia and having a completely different body.
  • Identity Amnesia: Used to be the destructive Adradon, but after being defeated and scattered apart, he lost his memory and instead became the peaceful and motherly Aggredora.
  • Killer Gorilla: Her torso and right arm consist of this.
  • Mix-and-Match Critters: Bat-like head that sprouts tendrils to incorporate the following as its body: a primate's torso and right arm, a frog's right arm, a sea monster's legs, a rattlesnake tail, and bat-like wings.
  • Mook Maker: Can spawn "children" that can serve as ammunition for either her long-range Eye Beams or short-range Breath Weapon.
  • Poisonous Person: Though only her frog hand is this.
  • Tail Slap: Able to do this with her rattlesnake tail.


  • Action Duo/Battle Couple: Bull (male) and Dozer (female) are two smaller kaiju that work together as one.
  • Breath Weapon: Dozer can shoot tranquilizing spray and webbing at long range. Bull has a mouth-based heat blast, but it has a very short range and barely extends beyond his mouth; however, it is still effective at enhancing his bite attacks.
  • Big Creepy-Crawlies: Dozer, a giant caterpillar.
  • For Science!: Why their home islands were bombarded with radiation - to study "macro-fauna."
  • Guys Smash, Girls Shoot: Bull (male) is the melee fighter of the duo while Dozer (female) handles ranged combat.
  • Horn Attack: Bull's primary form of attack is ramming with his Dual Crest.
  • Nuclear Nasty: How they were transformed into "macro-fauna." Many animals died, and while Bull and Dozer were successfully transformed, they were actually some of the weaker results and were pushed around as a result, hence why they teamed up.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: Both kaiju have red eyes, Bull having red irises and Dozer having red compound eyes.
  • The Spiny: Dozer's back is covered in long spines.
  • The Symbiote: In the non-malicious Equippable Ally sense.
  • Tail Slap: One way that Dozer can contribute to melee combat.

  • The Brute: While not exactly villainous, Tian-Lung is destructive and the largest Kaiju in the roster so far.
  • Dragons Up the Yin Yang: Was engineered to be one, but only resembles it physically.
  • Giant Flyer: More like gliding, but you get the point.
  • Gone Horribly Wrong: A scientist tries to genetically engineer a Chinese-style dragon to fight for humanity. He managed to get all the physical components in place, but he couldn't integrate the right personality.
  • Hollywood Heart Attack: Tian-Lung's creator, overwhelmed by shame, died of one when she broke free.
  • Purple Is Powerful: Aside from her yellow underbelly and limbs, her body is a lavender colour.
  • Raptor Attack: Partially, as the legs have raptor-style claws.
  • Reptiles Are Abhorrent: Despite being made in the image of a Chinese dragon, she's a cruel, vicious non-sentient.
  • Super Smoke: Not her strongest ability, but she does have some power over smoke, steam, and wind.


  • Blood Magic: He replaced his blood with magical ether, which he uses as offensive magic.
  • Cast from Hit Points: If he expends to much of his blood, he will end up damaging himself.
  • Deadly Gaze: His stare can stop the heart of his opponent, causing seizures or even death.
  • Non-Mammalian Hair: Despite being a member of the reptilian race that Heart Eater's armour is based on, he has somewhat lengthy white hair.
  • Power at a Price: Sacrificed his wings, carved runes into his skin, and drained all his blood to become a living vessel of mystic energy.
  • Power Gives You Wings: He sacrificed his wings for power, but can create magical replacements with his mystical blood.

    Mecha Stego Maximo 

    The Tri'Moloch 

  • Belly Mouth: Within his torso is the Maw of Greed.
  • Deal with the Devil: Rather, with an Entity of Chaos. The deal in question was to a man who jumped to his death; in exchange for his life and pretty much living like a king, he'd give up his first born. When the Entity came to collect, he turned the son into Bakuyoku.
  • Extra Eyes: Has three pairs of eyes on his head and one on his chest above his Belly Mouth.
  • Humanity Is Infectious: Thanks to being raised by a loving mother, Bakuyoku has a little bit of humanity left in him.
  • Mana Drain: He can use his greed to slash out energy from an opponent, siphoning their power instead of causing physical harm.
  • Make Me Wanna Shout: Rapture's Shriek. Which he uses to knock down/flatten opponents, ideally when their backs are turned.
  • More Teeth than the Osmond Family: On account of the Maw of Greed in his torso.
  • Multi-Armed and Dangerous: Has four arms emitting from his torso.
  • Power Floats: He perpetually hovers above the ground on account of having no legs.
  • Seven Deadly Sins: Represents Greed. His entire chest is made from the Maw of Greed - the direct conduit to the raw essence of Greed and he even gains energy from his opponent's greedy/selfish acts. Word of God is that the representative of pride killed his mother.
  • Spikes of Villainy: Across his head, shoulders, elbows, and spine.
  • Tail Slap: His "Grim Scythe" attack, which uses the tail that exists in the place of his legs.


  • Beware My Stinger Tail: The end of his tail has a large, spherical end that resembles a morning-star.
  • Boss Vulnerability: Part of Gaidragon's energy system, leaving him exposed as he gathers energy.
  • Defeating the Undefeatable: The Red Dragon Final Boss from one particular "Dragon Slayer" arcade game cabinet was never defeated for so long that when a professional player managed to do so, the dragon refused to die and went One-Winged Angel, becoming Gaidragon.
  • Disintegrator Ray: His De-Rez Beam, though unusually it's not a One-Hit Kill (at least on other Kaijus).
  • Final Boss: Was one in an in-universe arcade game called "Dragon Slayer."
  • Meaningful Name: Gai translates to "out"; in Gaidragon's case, breaking out of the virtual realm.
    • Meaningful Rename: From "Red Dragon," both for the above reasons and the fact that he turned blue (ceasing to be red in the process).
  • Nintendo Hard: His in-universe game is known for being extremely hard to beat, with Gaidragon's personal cabinet never being beaten.
  • One-Hit Kill: When it was in the video game, its weapons could kill the Player Character on contact.
  • One-Winged Angel: What Gaidragon is to the original Red Dragon Final Boss.
  • Our Dragons Are Different: Gaidragon is a digital life form augmented by an unknown source and is not actually organic.
  • Refugee from TV Land: Because he drew upon an unknown source of power in his video game, he became a sort of digital kaiju, which drew the attention of the Kaijujin. The Kaijujin can bring kaiju from across time and space, so bringing him to the real world was no more difficult.
  • Shock and Awe: Can push enemies back with a "Bolt Blast" after taking excessive damage.
  • Spikes of Villainy: Curved ones run all the way down his back and tail, plus the spiky ball at the end of said tail.
  • Tactical Suicide Boss: Upon running out of energy, he has to recharge, and when he starts recharging he cannot stop.
  • Tron Lines: He has a few glowing lines on his body to emphasize his digital nature.


     Prospector Pete 
  • Breath Weapon: Has two variants: fire and toxins. Both deal damage over time, but each require different treatment. The toxins react to oxygen and thus get worse with rapid movement, while the fire is quickly snuffed out by that same method.
  • Fighting Clown: A hermit crab using a themed restaurant is pretty ridiculous, doesn't mean she's any less dangerous. Her breath weapon if you think about it is an inverted game of "Red Light Green Light" to make things even more preposterous.
  • Gender-Blender Name: Justified as the name comes from the restaurant she carries on her back.
  • Giant Enemy Crab: She's a mutated hermit crab.
  • Greasy Spoon: Prospector Pete's All American Diner, a 1800's Gold Rush-themed restaurant which Prospector Pete uses as her shell and gets her name.
  • Nuclear Nasty: She was mutated by radiation after being unwittingly scooped up by a US cargo plane with the water for an emergency dousing of a nuclear reactor.

  • Absolute Xenophobe: Due to his Bizarre Alien Biology making him The Needless, he views other life forms irritable and disgusting, seeing no difference between zebra or lichen. Consequently, he has absolutely no compunctions about obliterating them for his own personal comfort.
  • Beware My Stinger Tail: Has three large spikes at the end of his tail, which he'll happily utilize in combat.
  • By the Lights of Their Eyes: Has a dark strip around his eyes that result in this effect.
  • Combat Tentacles: His clawed arms can extend into full whip-like tentacles.
  • Disintegrator Ray: At massive cost to his energy, he can project an energy field that causes nearby objects to crumble on a microscopic level.
  • Names to Run Away from Really Fast: Though he doesn't do any enslaving...
  • The Needless: Doesn't need to eat, drink, breathe, or dispose of waste. Doesn't even have a mouth.
  • Non-Indicative Name: Oddly, he does not actually enslave anyone or anything - he prefers killing anything he sees.
  • Sealed Evil in a Can: Got imprisoned on Earth because of his Absolute Xenophobe behavior. Though his creators seem to have neglected to put anything in the way to stop him from killing all native life on the planet.
  • Shock and Awe: He can channel electricity through his claws and extendable limbs.
  • Spikes of Villainy: Has a lot of pointy bits across his body, including spikes on the upper torso, elbows, and sides of the head, plus large pointed plates jutting out of the shoulders (though not quite to Shoulders of Doom level) and along the back.


  • Best Her to Bed Her: Implied, as her bio states that she's "in search of a mate, a challenge, or perhaps both."
  • Death Glare: Has a hypnotic variant that can paralyze opponents with fear.
  • Extra Eyes: Played with; while her hood and underbelly don't actually have extra eyes, the gaps from which the Sickly Green Glow emit from are shaped like menacing sets of Glowing Eyes of Doom.
  • I Love Nuclear Power/Nuclear Nasty: She was already a kaiju, but her adaptive cells learned how to feed off radiation from the nuclear plant built where she was hibernating, making her even more powerful than she was before. She grows stronger when exposed to radioactivity and can emit a devastating wave of such from her hood.
  • Mix-and-Match Critters: As the progenitor of many kaiju, she resembles a number of other snake breeds. Her main body has the head of a cobra and the tail of a rattle snake, while she has four other snake heads, each different, sticking from the lower portion of the cobra hood.
  • Mother of a Thousand Young: Many of Earth's snakes spawned from Ouroboros' mutable DNA, having been split from her during conflicts from the last kaiju age.
  • Mysterious Past: She hails from "the last kaiju age," but aside from her going into hibernation 8,000 years ago and her various skirmishes resulting in a lot of Earth's snake breeds, nothing else is known about said age. Word of God states that the Earth has these in cycles.
  • Poison Is Corrosive: Well, it is now that she's undergone a Nuclear Nasty makeover.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: Her main cobra head and her secondary black head both have red eyes.
  • Sickly Green Glow: The glow given by her radioactivity has this aesthetic.
  • Spikes of Villainy: Although not evil, her cobra hood is outlined with them.
  • Vertebrate with Extra Limbs: She's a serpentine kaiju with five heads, one main head plus four others positioned like limbs. In the original concept art, she had a total of seven.

  • Combat by Champion: Her worshipping tribe used her to settle disputes, battling the kaiju guardians of other tribes.
  • Face–Heel Revolving Door: Alternately worshipped as a guardian spirit and feared as a boogeyman-like figure.
  • God Guise: She isn't actually spiritual or magical in any way, though a tribe worshipped her as a guardian spirit regardless.
  • Make Me Wanna Shout: Her "Frog Song" ability results in croaks loud enough to stun kaiju that are too close.
  • More Teeth than the Osmond Family: Frogs to not typically have a row of large, pronounced teeth along both lips.
  • Overly Long Tongue: She's a frog, after all. Against bulkier opponents that can't be drawn in, she can use it to yank herself towards them.
  • Spikes of Villainy: Her head and back have numerous spikes sticking out of them. Counts as "villainy" due to her Face–Heel Revolving Door treatment.
  • Tribal Facepaint: The tribe that worshipped her painted them on during her longer periods of rest.
    • Power Tattoo: They were used as spiritual glyphs to seal Saltora in the spirit world after her tribe "retired" her.

  • An Axe to Grind: Has a double-bladed, axe-like attachment on his tail.
  • Arm Cannon: Has two mounted on his arms.
  • Artificial Limbs: Among his cybernetic enhancements was an artificial leg to make up for the one he never had.
  • Beware My Stinger Tail: Thanks to the An Axe to Grind attachment.
  • Breath Weapon: His long-range cannons vent heat into his body, allowing him to spew Plasma Bile.
  • Cyborg: The upgrades he got include two Arm Cannons, two long-range cannons, An Axe to Grind tail attachment, and a Cool Helmet that doubles as a cybernetic bridle.
  • Gentle Giant: Friendly to everyone and lovable enough to become a tourist attraction.
  • Harbinger of Impending Doom: When kaiju attacks increased, he started to be viewed as one, hence the cybernetic upgrades.
  • Inspirationally Disadvantaged: When he was found in Philadelphia, his right leg was a stump, his skull was malformed, and he was badly injured besides. He was not expected to survive long, but he did and became the city's mascot. When kaiju attacks became an all-too-real threat, the city revived old facilities to upgrade him to a Handicapped Badass Adorable to protect the city from any such attack.
  • Keet: He's pretty energetic and lovable for a giant monster. His design notes state to use Precious Puppies as animation references.
  • More Dakka: Between his short-range Arm Cannons and long-range ballistic cannons, he relies much more on firepower than physical attacks.
  • Pet Baby Wild Animal: A more communal example, the city of Philadelphia adopting him as something of a mascot.
  • Pint-Sized Powerhouse: He's smaller compared to most kaiju but more then makes up for it in firepower.

  • Abusive Parents: After being rejected as a hero by Kharbin Corp's board, he's now used as a shadowy enforcer for the company and test dummy for his colossi replacements.
  • Blade Below the Shoulder: His hands can project long wrist spikes made from the same metal/calcium material as his teeth.
  • Breath Weapon: Can spew an energy arc from his mouth, prematurely expelling the energy used for his Baseborn Ray.
  • Combat Stilettos: His feet have two spikes - one sticking up at the end of his foot, and the other propping him up like a high-heel.
  • Corrupt Corporate Executive: The Kharbin Corp leaders, who double as Abusive Parents for Kakushigo.
  • Cyclops: Has a single eye poking out at the top of his head.
  • Eye Beams: Can shoot his "Baseborn Ray" from his eye to knock opponents away or to the ground.
  • Meaningful Name: It translates to "illegitimate child" in Japanese.
  • Monster Protection Racket: In a sense. The Kharbin Corp uses Kakushigo to create kaiju assaults anywhere they want to test the effectiveness of their colossi program.
  • Red Eye Take Warning: His eye has a small green iris with a red cornea.
  • Spikes of Villainy: Has several spikes extending from his shoulders, though he only counts as villainous because of Abusive Parents.
  • Tail Slap: Uses his cudgel-like tail in combat.
  • Volumetric Mouth: Has a weaponized variant in the form of a telescoping mouth that allows for ranged bite attacks.
  • What Measure Is a Non-Cute?: Kharbin Corp's board of executives shut down Kakushigo's program because he was considered too ugly to be a hero, instead deciding that robotic colossi were more cost-efficient and popular with shareholders.

    Akua Ka 
  • First Church of Mecha: Popular legends from Hawaii and Polynesia paint Akua Ka as an instrument of the gods, when its actually an alien scout stuck on Earth.


  • Difficult, but Awesome: Rosie's main drawback is how many different features she uses, and having to use them all at once.
  • Drone Deployer: Has 4 different Drones she can build and deploy.
  • Expy: Can be seen as one to Moguera, sharing it's ranged fighting style, melee incompetence and ability to power down to recharge.
  • Fun with Acronyms: Her name stands for Robotic Operations Station International Exercise.
  • Giant Mecha: Is 80 meters tall and weighs 70,000 metric tons.
  • Gravity Master: Her Kinetic Kill Weapon, which can rip kaiju apart.
  • Long-Range Fighter: Not very good at hand-to-hand, given she has one particularly noneflexible "hand" and a Pile Bunker, which are basically it.
  • Mook Maker: Specializes in sending out smaller anti-kaiju drones.
  • Multi National Team: It's components are an American high-speed anti-kaiju tank, a Chinese anti-kaiju drone factory, a German kaiju-killer Wave-Motion Gun, an Indian manipulator claw, a variety of European missiles, and Japanese Drone AI all put together into one giant mech.
  • Shout-Out:
  • Tank Goodness: Has four sets of treads.

  • Anti-Magic: Ordo Maximus purges status buffs from his enemies.
  • Be Careful What You Wish For: Rome once summoned him to help defeat Carthage, but Orikalkos decided that Rome was too chaotic and unstable, so he turned on his summoners.
  • Blow You Away: Can create an Aether Vortex that knocks enemies around.
  • Breath Weapon: His Ordo Maximus is a stream of mystic energy emitted from his mouth.
  • Feathered Fiend: A very, very big humanoid bird.
  • Giant Flyer: Averted despite being birdlike.
  • Gratuitous Latin: His primary attack name, "Ordo Maximus".
  • Light Is Good: Seems to be one of the kaiju most firmly on humanity's side, though he cannot be controlled.
  • Order Versus Chaos: Firmly on the Order side of the scale.
  • Standard Status Effects: He can improve his melee capacities with his "Blessing of Iron". Conversely, his Ordo Maximus removes status effects from his opponents.
  • The Power of the Sun: Orikalkos can spread his wings to derive energy from the sun's rays.
  • Toothy Bird: He has teeth inside his beak.

  • Agony Beam: The Stinging Gaze inflicts little damage, but distrupts opponents.
  • Ascended to Carnivorism: A more minor example - she is normally not a herbivore, but a parasite. However, in a world where even the biggest creatures are barely bigger than herself, she happily becomes a full-fledged carnivore.
  • Belly Mouth: More like chest mouth, but still.
  • Beware My Stinger Tail: Takes it a step further with a tail that has its own mouth and bites opponents.
  • Big Eater: She gains energy by eating stuff.
  • Bizarre Alien Biology: She comes from a different dimension, which is why she looks so alien.
  • Body Horror: One of the most fearsome, monstrous kaiju. Just look at her gaping maw running through her chest.
  • Evil Eye: Her Stinging Gaze.
  • More Teeth than the Osmond Family: Both in her chest and in her tail.
  • Reptiles Are Abhorrent: Described as lizard-like in her bio.
  • Revenge: Formerly a tiny appetizing snack for any predator passing nearby, she has found herself in dimension deprived of any predators bigger than herself - and she intends to make the most of it.
  • Spikes of Villainy: She is covered in nasty spikes. They are not just aesthetic though, they deal damage to opponents that attack her in melee, which makes her also The Spiny.
  • Super Spit: She can vomit slime from her chest-mouth to encase and paralyze opponents.
  • The Symbiote: Of the parasitic kind. Her homeworld is full of creatures so immense that Iracundus is the size of a tick compared to them - so her feeding method is also that of a tick, attaching herself to other animals and feeding off them.
  • The Hunter Becomes the Hunted: Enjoys inflicting this trope on others.

    Jet Maiden 
  • Batter Up!: Her main weapon is a gigantic, metallic baseball bat. The little human in her official art (for size comparison purposes) even says "Batter up!"
  • Cool Mask: Her face has a futuristic-looking visor.
  • Combat Stilettos: Of which the heels are rocket jets.
  • Dash Attack: Her specialty is charging opponents and slamming them with her bat using her momentum.
  • Forgot I Could Fly: Or more like too lazy to do so: "Jet Maiden was built with significant defensive options, but her pilots are too lazy to engage them".
  • Humongous Mecha: Obviously.
  • Jet Pack: She comes equipped with a ton of rocket boosters that do not allow her to fly, but help her zoom around the battlefield.
  • Knight in Shining Armor: Obviously modeled to invoke this feeling in observers, though with a fairly fearsome toothy grin.
  • More Teeth than the Osmond Family: Her face has a very nasty-looking grin.
  • Lazy Bum: Her operators, which translates into the machine itself.
  • Lightning Bruiser: She reaches massive speeds with the help of her rocket boosters.
  • Nitro Boost: Her Jet Boost is her main way to engage opponents.
  • Nuke 'em: Her Atomic Blast.
  • Rocket Jump: She can fire a nuclear blast downwards to extend her jumps.
  • Shoulders of Doom: Her shoulderpads, equipped with yet more rocket boosters, are quite massive.

  • Emotion Bomb: The Manor projects an aura of horror which terrifies anything nearby. The Manor then consumes said fear and uses it as energy.

  • Morton's Fork: Fight the Manor head-on? Prepare to be crushed. Avoid it? Prepare to be annihilated by its magic, due to its special regeneration when not attacked.
