Worker

Eight meters tall and rather small for a kaijuu, it still poses a huge threat to humans. They come in large numbers and barge through buildings like solider ants.

A kaijuu that specializes in attacking with missiles and Gatling guns.

Drum Mine

13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim

A kaijuu filled with hexogen, which detonates itself when it comes close to its target for an explosive attack.

Apsos

13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim

A kaijuu that protects other kaijuu by shielding them. When a kaijuu is covered with its shield, they will not take any damage. Prioritizing this kaijuu before it emits its shield will be key to combat.

Mobile Fac

13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim

13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim

A heavy machine-type kaijuu that is over 100 meters tall. It has many weapons and thick armor. The plasma cannon fired from the upper middle part of its body is extremely strong, and even melts the armor of the Sentinels.
