|Damage Type||Energy Type|
Heat damage is inflicted when a monster is struck by flames or super-heated liquids, such as lava or plasma. Heat damages an object by exciting the molecules to the point where they begin to dissipate as liquid or gas, or sear those objects such that they experience a chemical change. To defend against Heat, a kaiju must have high surface area features (to dissipate the heat quickly), layers of insulation (to slow down thermal penetration), or be built of a material which does not react chemically at high temperatures. Kaiju are especially vulnerable to Heat if they rely upon surface moisture, have chemically reactive exteriors, or have no insulation between their vital organs and the outside.
