Might be cool on future kaiju:

Post by Defenestar » Thu Apr 07, 2016 10:26 pm

In no particular order, some things that might be neat to have on later additions to the roster of city-crushing monsters:


Upgrades that improve both the monster's armour and speed. This would actually make sense if the monster has an external skeleton of some kind, as a stronger outer layer allows whatever the beast uses for muscles to haul on its frame harder without risk of hurting itself as it scampers gleefully through a burning suburb.

Spare kaiju prepared in advance. Constructing most of the monster ahead of time so that when the creature's core returns after a defeat, it can be made immediately ready for action again. This would be sort of a next step beyond Armagordon's upgrade which allows him to send his loot home even if he doesn't make it out himself.

Upgrades allowing a kaiju to leave some lingering horror in a town they visit. Car-eating monsterlings in the sewers. Ghostly embezzlers in the banks. Extradimensional monstrosities haunting the dreams of the surviving citizens. Nanotech sabotage making the KDF's weapons in that town backfire destructively sometime during the next attack. Terrible curses shrouding the city in fog and making it easier to sneak up on next time. Stuff like that.

Kaiju power slots that do require equipping, but do not require activation. Maybe displayed in the training wheel as squares or something. For powers that just go off on their own, like passive guns or Gordo's fully-loaded shield. Possibly still appearing on the kaiju's action bar so we can see when they'll be ready to go off again, and tell if our +cooldown powers are helping them. Actually something like Gord's shield should maybe be octagonal so as to have the option of dropping it in to a round slot to fire it manually or a square one to leave it on auto.

Additional items:

Shield tricks! Shields that regenerate until either the timer goes or something pops them! Shields that pop up repeatedly with low hitpoint totals are are great against large individual attacks but kinda crap against lots of tiny ones! Shields that go up if you take actual kaiju damage while they're up!

Kaiju with ninja reflexes and long tendrils that turn missiles around to make someone else sad instead.

Kaiju that can be upgraded to move out to cities with lighting speed, but have to walk back. Yog might be a candidate for this. Leave through the creepy blood-soaked stone circle, walk back because this sack of loot isn't going to carry itself.
