Alien Mefilas (メフィラス星人 Mefirasu Seijin? Mefilas Star-people), alternatively spelled Alien Mephilas, are a race of recurring aliens in the Ultra Series who originate from the Planet Mefilas. Alien Mefilas' name originates from the German book "Mephistopheles", also they are colored black and silver as opposed to Ultraman's red and silver. Several of their people have tried to take control of the Earth, the first being thwarted by Ultraman, second was killed by Taro, and the final was a servant of the Alien Empera (Possibly the first encountered by Ultraman). Two other members had encountered the Ultra Crusaders away from Earth.
Subtitle: Malicious Alien (悪質宇星人 Akushitsu Uchūjin? Malicious Space-man)
Alien Mefilas, much like most other aliens of the show, came to Earth to conquer it. Unlike his fellow aliens before him, however, his motive was simply to show off his abilities to the rest of the aliens who had tried to conquer the Earth themselves, such as Kemur Man and Alien Zarab.
Alien Mefilas's plan was to have a child of the Earth give him the Earth willingly in return for a new star. Hiding in a forest inside his ship, Alien Mefilas spied Shin Hayata, Akiko Fuji and Akiko's younger brother, Satoru, watching an air show. Alien Mefilas spoke to Satoru, telling him to pay close attention, and then made the air show vanish into the clouds. Hayata and Fuji where baffled, but Satoru was still listening to Alien Mefilas. The alien then put a freighter vessel in place of the air show, then destroyed it in midair. Satoru then told Hayata that someone was talking to him, but before Hayata could do anything, Alien Mefilas captured all three of them.
Alien Mefilas turned Fuji into a giant and placed her in the middle of a city, and tried to convince Satoru to give him the Earth in return for a star, explaining that he wanted to "challenge the heart of an Earthling". But Satoru refused to give Alien Mefilas the Earth. Annoyed, Alien Mefilas put Satoru in his anti-gravity room. Witnessing the man of Mefilas's failure, Hayata (Ultraman) burst out laughing at him. Insulted, Alien Mefilas demanded to know what was so funny, to which Hayata replied that he couldn't convince a child to give up his planet in exchange for a new one because it was inhuman. Alien Mefilas then asked "Ultraman" whether he was an alien or a man. Ultraman simply said "I'm both", he then reached for the Beta Capsule, but Alien Mephilas froze him where he stood.
Alien Mefilas asked Satoru again if he would give him the Earth, but Satoru wouldn't answer. Enraged, Alien Mefilas made the giant Fuji go on a rampage in the city. The SSSP, who had arrived earlier, tried to keep the police from hurting Fuji. Alien Mefilas then made his presence known to them and took away Fuji and replaced her with illusions of Alien Baltan, Kemur Man, and Alien Zarab. Captain Mura demanded that Alien Mefilas show himself, but the alien said he could see them and said he wanted the hearts of the Earth. The SSSP asked what he meant, but heard him arguing with Satoru, who still refused to give into the alien's wishes. Alien Mefilas then turned off his illusions and left the SSSP dumbfounded. However, the conversation gave the SSSP the time they needed to locate Mefilas's spaceship, and an air strike was sent.
With his ship under attack and again with no other option, Alien Mefilas seemed to escape and leave his ship behind, while the Science Patrol rescued Fuji and Satoru. Although they could not rescue Hayata in time, Hayata managed to transform into Ultraman to face off against Alien Mefilas, who emerged from his destroyed ship as a giant. Ultraman offered him a choice to either leave the planet or die like the other aliens. Alien Mefilas refused to leave and went head-to-head with Ultraman in a very evenly matched battle, as all of Alien Mefilas's attacks were strong enough to counter Ultraman's attacks and his physical strength was on par with the hero's. Then shockingly, in the middle of the fight, Alien Mefilas surrendered, seeing no point in continuing. However, before leaving, he promised to Ultraman that they would meet again and he would get his revenge in the future.
- Voice actor: Seizo Kato
- Alien Mefilas has an IQ of 10,000 or more.
- Alien Mefilas was supposed to conjure up an illusion of Dada as well as having a scene of Mefilas with the aliens he restored on Mars, outside of the meeting room, Juran and Namegon wandering the red planet.
- Similar to Ultraman's lift off shout "Shuwatch!", Alien Mefilas has his own, "Fuwa! (フワッ?)".
- It's unknown how the spirit of the first Mefilas was used to create Grand King. He may have died sometime after he had left Earth or it could've possibly been the soul of the second Mefilas who (at the time) had recently been killed by Ultraman Taro.
- This Episode was later featured in episode 84 of Ultraman Retsuden: The Forbidden Word! The Challenge of Alien Mephilas!!
- Originally in the Forbidden Words, Alien Mephilas was to team up with Alien Baltan, Alien Zarab, and Kemurman in a great invasion, and use Zetton and Saigo to defeat Ultraman.
Ultraman TaroAnother Alien Mefilas appeared in episode 27 of the series Ultraman Taro, as Alien Mefilas Ⅱ (メフィラス星人二代目 Mefirasu Seijin Nidaime?).
After the first Alien Mefilas left Earth in Ultraman's time to find a new colony for his species, another member sought to dominate Earth. This Alien Mefilas tried to use a highly advanced bio-weapon called the Mandarin Grass to slowly kill off humans one by one. However after it was destroyed by ZAT, Alien Mefilas revealed himself, and suffers a major injury to his left eye from ZAT's weaponry. He then picks up the Mandarin grass, and wipes it over his damaged eye, restoring it. The second Alien Mefilas now prepared to take matters into his own hands by attacking ZAT directly. Before the situation could get worse, Kotaro turned into Ultraman Taro to do battle. Alien Mefilas was easily tossed around by Taro and after the hero punched a hole through his body, Taro used the Storium Ray, reducing Alien Mefilas into slime, therefore killing it.

- This Alien Mefilas is very differently redesigned from the original Alien Mefilas's appearance. This Alien Mefilas had a golden-colored hip and his neck was stretched out more to make him look taller. The white color around his eyes were dark pink and the lights in his "mouth" moved in a triangular motion when he spoke rather than a vertical motion like the original. His body is also more slender than the more bulkier appearance of the original Alien Mefilas.
- His original design was meant to be a copy of his original design only with the red lining around his eyes. The previously mentioned design above was only as such due to the budget restricting the company to use a modified cheaper suit that was used for attractions.
- Originally the mushroom monster, Mushra was suppose to appear in Alien Mefilas's episode appearance, but was pushed back for a later episode.
- In Ultraman Story it is said that he is the original and that he was the one in control of Re-Eleking.
- Many magazines at the time stated this Alien Mefilas is the younger brother of the original who sought Earth whilst his brother was busy managing an unseen monster army.
- Alien Mefilas II is one of Beryudora's body parts.
Alien Mefilas appeared again in the 1984 movie Ultraman Story. He is only shown as stock footage from Ultraman Taro and is the original Alien Meflias from Ultraman as stated in the movie.
After his Re-Eleking was defeated by Ultraman Taro, he decided to attack Earth himself. Ultra Father hears about this and quickly trains Taro to fight of Alien Mefilas' comeback. Once Taro was ready, he headed to Earth and defeated Alien Mefilas only to see there was a bigger threat.
- Although claimed as the first Mefilas that the original Ultraman fought, ironically his scene and defeat reuses the footage from Generation II's. If the movie is canon, then the story itself had concluded the alien's fate after retreating from a fight against his rival Ultraman.
Alien Mefilas appeared in episodes 43 through 47 of the series, Ultraman Mebius. In this series, Alien Mefilas has formed an alliance with Yapool, Deathrem, and Glozam under the team Dark Four Heavenly Kings
After Yapool, Deathrem, and Glozam were all defeated, Alien Mefilas comes to Japan in a new ship and this time he uses mind control on the populace to turn them all, as well as Team GUYS against Ultraman Mebius. He further panders to the people of Japan by demonstrating his power to destroy a Gromite he creates only to destroy shortly after out of false heroism and accolade. All the while, the original Ultraman returns to confront Mefilas into stopping him from doing any harm to the humans. However seeing as Mefilas has not harmed any humans, Ultraman cannot fight him. Eventually Ultraman Mebius (as Mirai) manages to show Team GUYS the control that Alien Mefilas has put them under, Mefilas tries to attack them out of self-defense and shortly afterwards appears himself to battle Mebius. Ultraman shows up and both Ultraman and Ultraman Mebius shortly double-team Alien Mefilas. After shrugging off one of Mefilas' lightning attacks, Ultraman persuades Alien Mefilas to surrender in order to save his own life knowing that he cannot beat two Ultras and Team GUYS. Once again, Alien Mefilas wisely surrenders and even acknowledges to Team GUYS of their efforts from defeating the other three Aliens. However before leaving, he promises to Ultraman that he would return to personally challenge him again. However, the promise was shortly broken as Alien Mefilas was then killed himself by the entity of the Emperor himself: Alien Empera.
- Voice actor: Seizo Kato
- This Alien Mefilas is not the original Alien Mefilas, but a third, separated from both the first Alien Mefilas and second. Tsuburaya decided to make this character a third character after having him masquerade as the first until the April Fools Day after the episode aired. However, some fans refuse to believe this and still insist that this Mefilas is, indeed, the first one, due in part to the original's unknown fate.
- This Alien Mefilas more closely resembles the original Mefilas than any other in the many ultra series.
- This Alien Mefilas' suit is frequently used in stage shows, where he often is shown scheming over plans. In homage to the first Mefilas, this Mefilas very rarely chooses to attack directly, instead watching the others fight and only joining in if cornered or forced.
Ultra Galaxy Mega Monster Battle: Never Ending Odyssey
Alien Mefilas reappeared in episodes 9, 12, and 13 of the series, Ultra Galaxy Mega Monster Battle: Never Ending Odyssey. In this series, an Alien Mefilas is a Reionics who once wielded a Battle Nizer until he was defeated and left for dead by an Alien Temperor prior to certain events in the show. After discovering Armored Darkness's sword, Mefilas is transformed into Armored Mefilas (アーマードメフィラス Āmādo Mefirasu?) and thus goes on a killing spree for those who mock him or get in his way, all while being controlled by Armored Darkness's conscience. He kills a Dada that mocked him earlier, and attacks Reimon for standing in his way. He later confronts the Alien Temperor that defeated him earlier for a rematch and winds up killing both and his monster, Arigera. Shortly afterwards, Armored Mefilas revives Armored Darkness to serve "his master" (Possibly Empera), only for Darkness to kill Mefilas and retrieve the sword he had taken away.
During the series finale, Armored Mefilas was revived as a giant-sized and mindless slave being controlled by Alien Reiblood. After facing off against Rei's monsters (Gomora and Miclas), Alien Mefilas is eventually freed from both Reiblood's control and the Armor that possessing him. After being transformed back into his normal form, Alien Mefilas frees the Pendragon from an inter-dimensional rift underground created by Reiblood to keep them from contacting Rei out of gratitude to Rei for saving him.
- Voice actor: Seizo Kato
- The Alien Mefilas Suit from Ultraman Mebius was reused for Alien Mefilas' appearance in the series. Meanwhile, the Armored Mefilas suit was modified from the backup suit of the original.
- When Alien Mefilas was controlled by Reiblood he never talked but instead only emitted grunts.
- He is also the second Reionics that didn't have any nefarious desires.
Ultraman Mebius Side Story: Ghost Reverse
"Mecha-Zamu! It's your fate to resurrect the Emperor. You cannot escape from this fate!"
- ―Alien Mefilas, while penetrating the Giga Battle Nizer to Mecha-Zamu's chest
Alien Mefilas reappeared in the prequel to Mega Monster Battle: Ultra Galaxy Legend The Movie, this version is known as Armored Mefilas (G).
Alien Mefilas was revived as Armored Mefilas (G) along with Deathrem, Glozam, and Yapool (In the form of Mebius Killer) assault the Ultra Brothers in an attempt to reunite the Giga Battle Nizer and Mechazam in an attempt to resurrect Alien Empera. However, their plans are foiled when Ultraman Mebius looses the Giga Battle Nizer. After the Ultra's fight with Deathrem & Ace Killer, the four Ultramen surrounded the two surviving Heavenly Kings. As Glozam struggled to get up, Mefilas kicked him aside towards Mebius and Hikari. While he cursed, Mefilas fired an energy blast that killed him, saying that its for the resurrection of their emperor. After Mebius attempted to get Mecha Zamu back with his bleeding light, Mefilas kicked Mebius aside and penetrates the Giga Battle Nizer to Mecha Zamu's chest, but only get killed by Hikari after this.
- Voice actor: Seizo Kato
- This is the final Alien Mefilas to be voiced by Seizo, following his death in 2014.
- The G in Alien Mefilas (G) stands for Ghost.
- Alien Mefilas (G) is rather out-of-character. Here, he is seen as arrogant, cocky, and somewhat cowardly, as opposed to his predecessors who where composed and cunning.
- Unusually, the Armored Mefilas Suit from Ultra Galaxy NEO was reused for Alien Mefilas' appearance in the film. This is a major continuity error as the Alien Mefilas displayed is suppose to be the same Alien Mefilas that served as one of the Four Heavenly Kings in Ultraman Mebius though it can be presumed that when the Ultra Galaxy NEO Mefilas died, the Mebius Mefilas seems to use his information on his newly revived form. This was done as the Ultraman Mebius Alien Mefilas suit was already modified into the "Armored" form, and couldn't be modified backwards due to short schedule.
- Given that the Armored Mefilas see in Ultra Galaxy NEO also appeared to be a servant of Empera, it is possible that G is actually that incarnation rather than the one seen in Mebius.
