As per the size of the Kaiju, they seemed like they could be monsters from Earth, but in the movie they showed that they may be alien too. So I just want to know, what exactly are these Kaijus?

And the definitions of what you call a "monster" or an "alien" would be...? –  Sonny Burnett Dec 30 '13 at 14:52
    
Dinosaur, we can call them monsters, but I don't think so we can call Alian to them. –  Neelesh Pandey Dec 30 '13 at 15:13

A dinosaur is an animal, a werewolf for me would be a monster, a kaiju is some kind of alien monster. "Monster" is a pretty broad term, that's why I would have liked to hear your definition of it, as otherwise the question is pretty moot. –  Sonny Burnett Dec 30 '13 at 16:34
    
Do you mean if they are monsters originating from Earth or from outer space? –  System Down Dec 30 '13 at 18:21

@NeeleshPandey - As you can see from our many questions your distinction is not clear. It doesn't matter if you find it clear (of course you do, you wrote it!), but if readers find it clear. –  System Down Dec 31 '13 at 8:22

The Kaiju are a race of amphibious creatures genetically engineered by the Precursors, a sentient race from the Anteverse. In 2013, the Precursors opened a portal between dimensions at the bottom of the Pacific Ocean, allowing the Kaiju to enter Earth's dimension. (Source:pacificrim.wikia.com)

So its clear from that, Kaiju are the monster created by Alien scientists.
