Jake Pentecost, son of Stacker Pentecost, reunites with Mako Mori to lead a new generation of Jaeger pilots, including rival Lambert and 15-year-old hacker Amara, against a new Kaiju threat.
The Kaiju that Gipsy Avenger and Bracer Phoenix fight is named Raijin, which sounds similar to Raiju, the name of a Category 4 Kaiju that was killed by Gipsy Danger in Pacific Rim (2013).
You ready for this?
Nate Lambert: No! You?
Jake Pentecost: No. On three.
Nate Lambert: Great.
Jake Pentecost: One, two...
Put simply, Stacker Pentecost never had a son. He said his adopted daughter Mako Mori, was "all he had" in Pacific Rim (2013). Jake Pentecost was never mentioned, seen, or even hinted at in Pacific Rim (2013) or any of the comics.
The Universal Studios and Legendary Pictures logos appear as Jaeger displays.
