But TOTT kind of feels that Pacific Rim is somewhat inspired by Shingeki No Kyojin aka Attack on Titan S1? We are here with some solid instances, that prove our point of view. So, let us get started with-

9 Similarities Between Pacific Rim And Shingeki No Kyojin Season 1

Similarity #1 There Is A Yeager(Jaeger)

Well, starting the argument with the most obvious one which is the presence of Jagear/Yeager in the movie. In Pacific Rim Jeagar represents giant robots that fight Kaijus. In the anime, we have Eren Yeager who transforms into the Attack titan to fight those pure breed titans.

In the movie, the threat to humanity is the presence of Kaijus, whereas, in the anime, it is the pure breed titans. You are getting the points right??

Similarity #2 Both The Shows Have An Intense Asian Character

Just like the anime the movie also has a fighter Asian girl; they resemble each other as well. Pacific Rim has Mako Mori and Shingeki No Kyojin has Mikasa Ackerman.

Both come from a disturbing past, both are orphans and both are raised by a kind-hearted father figure. However, as for Mikasa the story behind the father figure changes in just some days. In addition, both Mako and Mikasa excel in their job too.

Similarity #3 You Need To Bond With The Jaeger

The giant robots that fight Kaijus need a pair of a bond. The criteria normally suit family or best of friends. In the anime, the Titan shifter operates the Titan body seating inside, bonding entirely with the physical entity from head to toe.

This puts muscular and physical strain on the Titan shifter. But they need to keep on fighting the pure breed titans or Kaijus in case of Pacific Rim.

Similarity #4 Mako And Marshal Stacker Pentecost

The movie brings an adoptive duo of Mako and Marshal Stacker Pentecost. They share a father and daughter bond, which somehow reminded me of Levi and Mikasa. Well, of course, Levi and Mikasa do not share any family or sibling bond, but the Ackerman duo is badass. They fight like beasts, just like this Pacific Rim duo.

Similarity #5 The Leads Lost Someone Precious

Yes, Eren lost his mother as a kid due to a massive Titan attack on his village. And here in Pacific Rim, Raleigh Becket also loses someone very dear to his life which was his brother. They drove Gypsy Danger together and displayed an unmatched performance.

However, in their journey, the brother duo meets their fate while battling a category 3 kaiju named ‘Knifehead’. In the battle, Raleigh loses his big brother that shatters him up.

Similarity #6 The Presence of Wall

Both the series have the concept of wall, to protect the remaining human civilization. Well, isn’t it obvious now?

Similarity #7 The Kaijus

In Shingeki no Kyojin Season 1 we, see that no one knows the reality behind the existence of Titans. How they are produced or where do they come from? Very little information is shared in the very first season of this Goat anime.

The movie also shows something nearby to the subject. The alien species suddenly emerge from an interdimensional portal deep down from the Pacific ocean.

Fighting the kaijus are definitely not easy. Therefore to battle, this impending doom human race comes up with Jagears(Eren Yeager in the anime helps the human race to fight the Titan attacks ), which needs two pilots to sync(Drift) and balance the operative stress.

Similarity #8 Hanges

Yes, we also have a freak who shows passion for these enormous menaces in Pacific Rim. We have Hange in Shingeki No Kyojin while in Pacific Rim we have Dr. Newton ‘Newt’ Geiszler, both showing their love for Kaiju in different universes.

Similarity #9 Levi & Erwin

In Pacific Rim Marshal Stacker Pentecost represents both Levi and Erwin. Yes, Idris Elba plays both brain and balls in this jaw-dropping sci-fi flick. He manages the Jaeger program with brain and fights the Kaiju when crisis lands down on the earthlings.
