    Cherno Alpha
The Big C, Mark II configuration

Near enough to the protagonist of the roleplay. Cherno Alpha is the only surviving T-90 Mark I Jaeger in Russian service, and continues to fight in humanity's stead.

  • Bishōnen Line: Mark II configuration is much closer to human proportions than before, thanks to focusing upgrades on Agility and Dexterity.
  • Combat Pragmatist: Extremely ruthless and will use any method that can be considered efficient, repeatedly.
  • Lightning Bruiser: After an agility upgrade, Cherno can run as fast as helicopter and still hit like a massive freight train.
  • Mighty Glacier: Started as one, with such low Agility it couldn't even run, but the strongest armour of all Jaegers.
  • Nice Hat: His Cooling Tower, shaped like typical nuclear reactor building.

    Cossack Delta
Cossack Delta, Mark I configuration

Vladivostok's second Jaeger. Piloted by Nina and Fyodor Kuznetzov.

  • Abnormal Limb Rotation Range: Cossack's Flex Joints gives her this, which translates into better grappling capabilities.
  • Action Girl: Like Gipsy Danger, Cossack is built on a female humanoid frame. Also, one of her pilots was an active infantryman before being chosen as a Jaeger pilot.
  • Anti-Armor: The Impact Hammer deals more damage to heavily armored areas than lightly armored ones.

    The Red Army 

Supporting Cherno Alpha and helping keep the people of Vladivostok safe.

  • Armor Is Useless: If any conventional force is hit by a Kaiju they they will die, regardless of armour they have.
  • Awesome, but Impractical: They have a Giant Tank and a supermassive Cargo Flyer, which are actually tough enough to not be One-Hit Kill by Kaiju. Problem is that these have their own crippling weakness (too expensive, penalty etc).
  • A Day in the Limelight: Whenever Cherno is too busy/faraway to punch kaijus, it's up to the Red Army to fight them off. They do a pretty good job at it, even defeating a Category III all by themselves!
  • Overshadowed by Awesome: As the GM elucidates in this post, the "conventional" forces in play are far more powerful than any present day military equipment, which is why they're at all relevant to a Kaiju fight. It's just that Jaegers are so much more potent.


  • Meaningful Name: Dexter and Sinister are identical, save for a swollen right/left arm, respectively.

  • Wake-Up Call Boss: For the first two weeks, the Red Army were doing well against the Kaiju. Then along comes Gogiora and destroys five out of six Anti-Kaiju-Tank squadrons!




  • Boss in Mook's Clothing: The players got three targets to pick from, and selected the easiest-looking one. They were so wrong.
  • Flunky Boss: Summons Cat I & II, Leo and Ulagon, to fight for it.
  • Mook Maker: Creates Category 0 Kaijus to feed it.

  • Evil Counterpart: Like Cherno it was a heavily-armoured close combat specialist. It even used the same taunt. Also like Cherno it ended up losing one of its arms.


  • Boss in Mook's Clothing: Ontaru may have been classed as a Category III but in practice was on par with weaker Category IVs.


  • Action Bomb: Detonates upon death. Luckily Cherno kills it from afar using its rockets.
  • Breath Weapon: Shoots burning fuel as its ranged attack.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: Uses fuel as an attack... gets killed by said fuel when Cherno ignited it. Justified, as it was meant to self destruct on Cherno Alpha.

  • Fan Nickname: In-universe; Stupid Jetpack Kaiju.
  • Oh, Crap!: The Red Army's (and the players') reaction to when after getting damaged severely, Garago's gills opens out to reveal it has a jetpack.

  • Beware My Stinger Tail: The Kaiju resembles a scorpion with a railgun tail.
  • Healing Factor: It can consume the scrap metal surrounding it to regenerate.
  • Magnetic Weapons: One of its gimmicks is an organic railgun able to shoot a round clean through Cherno's chest armour and out the other side.

  • Determinator: Even more so than Cherno. He feels no penalties for injury, and keeps attacking Cherno after he's officially dead.
  • Feel No Pain: One of his perks is being so stupid he ignores brain damage.
  • Super Toughness: Very first thing he does is take no damage from a Piston Punch in his mouth.

  • Wake-Up Call Boss: The first Kaiju to successfully disable Cherno Alpha. The result was a massive Oh, Crap! on behalf of the players.

Japan's Kaiju

    The Deathlist 

The 5 most dangerous Kaiju in Japan, marked for death in the future.

  • Tsukemono, Category III. A small, fast Cat 3 which has been consuming petrol and industrial chemicals from destroyed factories to supercharge it's metabolism.
  • Sensoha, Category III. A quick and nimble Kaiju who seems to have a particular fascination with destroying transportation infrastructure.
  • Gar, Category IV. An extremely tall creature who emits constant sonic pulses which have devistated JSDF attempts to disrupt it's movements.
  • Satsujin-gao, Category IV. A brooding giant with gnarled claws, it hasn't actually gone out of it's way to destroy anything yet, but it's sheer size makes it a priority target.
  • Bakuhatsu, Category V. A massive flaming beast surrounded by a pyroclastic aura; everything for kilometers around it burns. Oh, and we're pretty sure it can fly.

The UN

Warning: Everything under here is a big spoiler.

  • Didn't See That Coming: No one considered hostile Jaegers as a serious possibility until these guys showed up.
  • Wham Episode: Someone is sending around automated Jaegers using the name of the UN. They hunt all Kaiju and Jaegers. The things run off a miniature breach and send comm signals from canon and the other quests through them.

    Mark 6. 0 
  • Attack Drone: Has two drone helicopters that give targeting data. Itself has no human pilot.
  • BFG: Uses a 200mm gyro-jet rifle oversized even in proportion to its size.
  • There Is Another: Before it appeared, everyone thought Cherno was the last Jaeger.
