The Kilaak UFO (キラアク星円盤,   Kiraaku-Sei Enban, lit. Kilaak Star Disk), known as the Fire Dragon (火竜,   Hiryū) when it was encased in fire, is a spaceship used by the Kilaaks that first appeared in the 1968 Toho film, Destroy All Monsters.


Showa era

Destroy All Monsters

While flying around its lunar base, the Moonlight SY-3 sighted a Kilaak UFO flying around the Moon.

After Godzilla and the other monsters defeated King Ghidorah, a Kilaak UFO, identified as a kaiju called the "Fire Dragon," emerged from the Kilaak base. Flying across the battlefield at high speed, the Fire Dragon set Rodan ablaze, then destroyed a building as well as several JASDF jets that attempted to intercept it. Fortunately, Godzilla located the Kilaaks' base and tore his way into it, lowering the interior's temperature, forcing the Kilaaks inside to enter into hibernation. Shortly afterwards, the Moonlight SY-3, having just returned from the lunar expedition, found and took down the last one of the Kilaaks' spacecraft.

The Fire Dragon in the Destroy All Monsters manga

The 1968 manga adaptation of Destroy All Monsters features a Fire Dragon that is more true to its title, assuming the full-fledged appearance of a dragon made of flames, despite still being revealed as a Kilaak UFO in the end.

Fire Dragon

The Kilaak UFO can create a lot of heat, covering itself in flames. Like this, the spaceship can ravage anything in its path, seemingly without damaging itself in the process. This fire is strong enough to even set kaiju such as Rodan ablaze. When on fire, this mode is referred to as the "Fire Dragon."
