Pacific Rim: RISING VALOR by ZEroePHYRt Pacific Rim: RISING VALOR by ZEroePHYRt
A custom Jaeger designed for IGN's "Design your own Jaeger" contest.
Modeled after a knight, it's made for high-mobility and articulation to better melee the crap out of Kaijuu.
It has 5 nuclear engines, located in the chest, shoulders and thighs. The exhaust flames and surface temperature are used as a defensive weapon.
It's also very tall, at about 54 humans high, about 30-40ft higher than the current five Jaegers.

It should've probably been the UK/European Union's Jaeger, but putting it next to the Eiffel tower was a cool idea in my head.

Just gotta say, i really F***ING LOVE THIS JAEGER!!! :D
I really like how lanky and lightweight you made the jaeger, it kinda reminds me of a typical teenager. ;P And the fact that it is a mk: 8 makes it look like a sequel fitting jaeger wich also makes It's height make more sence.

This is one of the best looking fan made jaegers i have ever seen.

This Jaeger seems to capitalize on fencing and mobility, unlike other Jaegers which seem to be made to tank everything that hits them, however this throws defense out the window and focuses on offensive tactics like mobility, speed of joints, extremely hot surface temp and exhaust, etc.
Well done! Well done!

Out of the fan made Jaeger naming so far, I find Rising Valor quite appropriate with naming rules in the movie.

Thanks! I tried to match everything about the movie as much as possible, and the naming scheme of "put two cool/formidable/military words together that may or may not have anything to do with the robot" is really important when separating a Jaeger from other giant mecha.
I don't get why there are so many entries like "Ghost" and "Beta Blocker"

Really quite outstanding! (no pun intended:P)

Great design, wonderful presentation and layout. The mech doesn't give the appearance of being over-powered, but nicely balanced in weaponry and agility.

Thanks! I really wanted to make it seem cool, formidable and universe-fitting without being over-powered. In fact, it's missing spammable long-range weaponry like every other Jaeger seems to have (in the form of chest cannons and etc) so it might even be at a slight disadvantage.

I even denoted it as a Mark VIII (3 Mks newer than the ones in the movie) to make its more eccentric design/construction more reasonable. I really tried to put a lot of thought into everything. I really hope I make the top 15
