The Kilaaks (キラアク星人 are a race of aliens and are the main antagonists of the 1968 film, Kiraaku Seijin, lit. Kilaak Planet People)Destroy All Monsters. They hail from Planet Kilaak, an undiscovered planet somewhere within the Asteroid Belt.
Name[edit | edit source]
This alien race's Japanese name simply translates to "Kilaak Aliens," which comes from the name of their home planet. In the English dubs and subtitles for Destroy All Monsters, the aliens are called "Kilaaks." English fans sometimes also give the race the alternate English name of "Kilaakians." In the book Godzilla 1954-1999 Super Complete Works, they are given the English name Kiraaku.
Design[edit | edit source]
The Kilaaks take the form of female humans wearing light blue robes that cover all except their faces. However, these forms are actually a disguise, as the Kilaaks' true forms resemble small metallic worms.
History[edit | edit source]
The Kilaaks were a race of female humanoids from the planet Kilaak, which was said to be between Mars and Jupiter. The aliens invaded Monsterland and assumed control of the kaiju and resident scientists. Soon the monsters were attacking cities across the globe - Godzilla attacked New York, Rodan assaulted Moscow, Mothra invaded Beijing, Manda attacked London, and Gorosaurus destroyed Paris. Despite the military's efforts to stop them, the aliens remained unscathed until their base on the moon was destroyed by the rocketship, Moonlight SY-3. When humanity broke the kaiju from their control, the aliens pulled out their trump card - King Ghidorah. However, up against the combined might of Godzilla, Anguirus, Gorosaurus, Rodan, Mothra, Kumonga, and Minilla, Ghidorah was easily slain. Godzilla then destroyed the Kilaaks' base on Earth, ending their threat.

Abilities[edit | edit source]
The Kilaaks attempted to conquer Earth in order to create a great scientific civilization, which they stated needed some death to create. The aliens thrived in high temperatures and were greatly susceptible to cold. When they were struck by low temperatures, they shed their human guises and reverted to their true forms: small, metallic worm-like creatures. However, in this form, the aliens are almost incapable of moving due to the form's sheer weight.
Aside from their mind control devices (that can enslave both humans and kaiju alike), the Kilaaks don't seem to possess any particularly notable technology, though they do have forcefields that can't be penetrated even by bullets. Their flying saucers aren't much of a threat in and of themselves, but they have the ability to engulf their outer hulls in flames, burning anything the ship may touch. This mode is called a "Fire Dragon."
