Kiyla (キーラ, Kīra?) is an alien kaiju from the TV series, Ultraman. He appeared in episode 38.

Subtitle: Photothermal Monster (光熱怪獣, Kōnetu Kaijū?)


  • Height: 40 m
  • 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.

Other MediaEdit

Ultra FightEdit

Kiyla reappeared in several episodes of the series Ultra Fight.

  • Kiyla reappeared in episode 169, where he, alongside Alien Icarus and Woo, played a game with Ultraseven before they escalated into an all-out brawl with the majority of it being the three monsters against the Ultra. After a long fight, Kiyla, alongside Icarus, was knocked out by Seven after he knocked out Woo.
  • In episode 174, Kiyla met up with Alien Icarus, who was digging for something at the time. It is soon revealed to be a sword. He unsheathed it and then briefly used it to fight the monster before the latter knocked it away, resulting in a fisticuff fight with the monster actually managing to hold his own against the alien, who was super strong. Suddenly, Ultraseven showed up and convinced the monsters to stop fighting each other. All three of them decided to dig together and managed to find a cattle skull, which made them faint.
  • In episode 178, Kiyla the majority of his time squaring off against woo with swords on the beach and both of them didn't make a move until the end where, after their swords clashed, Kiyla defeated Woo with slash to the chest, resulting in him being knocked out cold.
  • Kiyla reappeared in episode 184, where he fought Eleking on even terms at a beach. Afterwards, Kiyla convinced Eleking to call a truce with each other, only for the former to backstab the latter by knocking him out with a fierce blow to the head via a hammer.
  • Kiyla reappeared in episode 194 where he was just was minding his own business, walking about on the beach. 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.


  • 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.
