"What in the depths of hell is that?" --Sergeant Jasper Pattenson, Second Kaiju War
Antlion is a Category 7 Kaiju that was created during the Second Kaiju War. It emerged from the Australian Breach to attack, but instead of hitting Australia, it turned its attention to New Zealand.
Antlion has a very large, muscular body, similar to Slattern's. He has six enormous, insectoid legs, each with joints and small spines all over their segments. The ends of the legs contain huge, dark brownish-gray claws, capable of easily breaking through a building or piercing the armor of a Jaeger. The legs also have large, unusual plumes on the ends, used to help the Kaiju flow through the water when it is swimming. The legs are also quite skinny, and appear as two fused insectoid legs instead of just one.
Antlion's head has two mouths; a primary one, and a secondary one. The Kaiju's primary mouth has jaws identical to that of an Ant Lion, but are much longer and tougher, unlike the insect larva. The inside of the mouth glows a deep ocean blue, and can emit corrosive gases that can damage a Jaeger's armor. The secondary mouth has the ability to make the corrosive gases solidify and then explode on contact with anything, including the Kaiju itself. Antlion's second mouth contains sharp tooth-like plates instead of actual teeth, similar to a Dunkleosteus. Antlion also has four large, glowing orange and compound eyes.
Antlion's body consists of a thorax and an abdomen. The thorax contains the first pair of legs, and has large spikes running down the back. The abdomen is segmented differently than the creature's legs, and has eight addition segments, with glowing blue lines all over the body. Antlion's abdomen has an earwig-like pincer on the end, but it cannot do too much damage if the Jaeger is aiming for the front of the Kaiju. Antlion has smallish wings, but they do not allow it to fly whatsoever.
Antlion's modified form made it three times larger than its original size, elongated its Ant-Lion jaws, gave it a stinger to replace the pincer, and more spikes bloomed from its back, both the abdomen and the thorax.
Antlion was originally a modified clone of another clone of Slattern, which was finished right before.
Antlion first emerged from the Australian Breach on May 16th, 2028, and was originally planned to aim for eastern Australia instead of New Zealand. However, it payed no attention to Australia, and began to destroy the island of New Zealand and neighboring locations. In the middle of its rampage, Valcary was deployed onto the scene, and put a brief stop to Antlion's wrath. The ensuing fight nearly killed Antlion, as Valcary managed to break and slice off one of it's Ant Lion-jaws, and create a deep wound in its stomach. Antlion managed to escape a violent death, and hid under the waters off New Zealand's coast.
It patiently waited for Valcary to search elsewhere, and then slowly swam back into the Australian Breach (not without difficulty of course, for it was slowly dying because of the stomach wound.) Valcary was told to stay on alert in case Antlion returned. Years later, Antlion re-emerged from the Australian Breach on December 22, 2039 (the Breach was, in the meantime, expanded to allow Antlion through due to its larger size), and resumed its earlier destruction of New Zealand. Valcary was repaired and re-deployed to finish off Antlion once and for all.
Valcary managed to keep Antlion away from New Zealand for a short time, but had difficulty stopping the Kaiju, for it was modified by the Precursors to withstand the Jaeger's attacks. After almost an hour of battle with neither Jaeger nor Kaiju gaining the upper hand, Valcary managed to have stabbed the Kaiju through the back, slicing many of its insides apart and cutting up its neck, killing it. The Jaeger watched as Antlion slowly fell into the ocean, dead.
Antlion's remains were put inside of an Australian museum, although the major remains were the skull and a jaw-bone.
Antlion's desecration of New Zealand took a year to clean up, and its Kaiju Blue was quickly disposed of from the ocean.
