  • Weight: 20,000 t
  • Tail length: 60 m 
  • Origin: Planet Q



The Planet Q was a new discovery and as a robotic probe looked for useable resources, the camera revealed a gigantic eye looking into the lens. A quick flash followed, blinding those that watched the screen. With a group of astronauts trapped on the planet of kaiju, the Science Patrol was dispatched. Upon arrival, the group witnessed a battle between Kiyla and Saigo. The wicked monster drove Saigo into full retreat, allowing Kiyla to wander the alien world without any fear.

As the Science Patrol continued to explore and accomplish their mission, Kiyla appeared before two of the teammates and blinded Arashi! While they made it back to their vehicle, Kiyla again appeared, blocking their path. The group ventured outside to combat the monster, but none of their attacks could even hurt it! As they retreated to the nearby rocket, Hayata summoned Ultraman to assure their safety.

The hero attacked the space insect, pummeling it with a flurry of strikes. Victory seemed assured for the hero, a blinding flash made the red and silver giant stagger! Unable to see, Ultraman was met with a relentless attack until his eyesight returned. When it did, the hero caught the alien beast with his Ultra-Catch Ray V2 and floated it into the air, driving it off and exploding into the distance, allowing the Science Patrol to escape.


  • Suit actor: Haruo Nakajima.
  • Kiyla's name is taken from the English terms "Killer" and "Eye".
  • When Kiyla uses his blinding flash attack, the opening sfx of the cracking door from Ultra Q (and Ultraman) is heard.
  • Although not physically seen, Kiyla is one of the monsters that makes up Beryudora's body in Mega Monster Battle: Ultra Galaxy Legend The Movie.
  • In a very rare 1967 television show called He of the Sun, Kiyla was pitted against Gaira the Green Gargantua of Toho fame, making this the first time both companies let a monster from their franchises meet.

Ultraman GingaEdit

In episode 7, Kiyla's spark doll and many others are seen cheering on Ultraman Ginga as he fights Dark Galberos. It is likely that Kiyla returned to space in his original form after Ginga defeated Dark Lugiel.

Powers and WeaponsEdit

  • Blinding Eye Flashes: Kiyla can emit a flash of bright light from his eyes, capable of blinding his victims. These eye flashes can also cause explosions.
  • Exoskeleton: Kiyla's exoskeleton is powerful enough to withstand attacks like Ultraman's Specium Ray.
  • Tail Catch: Kiyla's tail can catch things like Ultraman's Ultra-Slash, even without knowing that Ultraman is using it.

  • In episode 193, Kiyla showed up on a beach and threw rocks at Eleking while he was sleeping, which agitated him into fighting him head on which went on for quite a while with Eleking winning and when Ultraseven showed up, the fight turned into a brawl with no revealed winner.

Suddenly, he came across an ax on the ground, picked it up, and then played around with it until Eleking showed up with a gun he just found and challenged Kiyla to a weapon fight. He agreed to do so and both monsters ended up evenly matched against each other until Alien Icarus showed and interfered with their fight. The two monsters then decided to team up to defeat the alien. Even though Icarus had the upper hand with his brute strength, both monsters didn't give up and eventually, Kiyla killed Icarus with his ax after the latter downed Eleking. Unfortunately, he was betrayed by Eleking when the latter shot the former numerous times with his gun, although he would eventually commit suicide afterwards.

After Seven took out Eleking, Woo, and Baltan, Seven turned his attention towards Kiyla and killed him by slashing him in the back via his wooden staff.


  • In this series, Kiyla's appearance has changed moderately. His body, arms, and legs are covered with light-green stripes, his antenna are yellow and smaller than their original size. His eyes are also half-shut, making the alien appear as if he is sleepy or unamused.
