A Knifehead is a Category III kaiju that appeared in the film, Pacific Rim.


Knifehead is a heavily built Kaiju. Its most notable feature is the long and broad sharp-ended nose and its head similar to a goblin shark, its nose could easily cut through the armor of a Jaeger. Atop the center of its head resides a blowhole that forcefully expels air whenever it resurfaces from the water like a whale. It has a large shell-like armor on its back, It has two large dominant arms and two smaller secondary arms protrude from its belly. Its large arms each have three clawed digits, the middle digit being significantly larger. It is infamously known for almost attacking Alaska, but did not and murdering Raleigh Becket's brother, Yancy.
