History

Showa Series

Ultraman

Kiyla was one of two monsters residing on Planet Q, a mysterious planet that an expedition had been sent to investigate for rare metals and other valuable resources. When the SSSP sent a satellite to observe the planet, a massive orange eye appeared, stared up the satellite's lens, and then emitted a blinding flash. When they landed, they explored for a moment and went to search for the missing miners, but were forced to run for their lives after Kiyla emerged in vicious combat with Saigo, a reptile-like monster. The two continued to fight while the SSSP escaped back to their ship. Eventually Saigo and Kiyla burrowed back underground after Saigo was blinded by more flashes from Kiyla's eyes, and Kiyla was likewise blinded by a jet of sand that Saigo spat at him.

Later, Saigo burrowed back out of the ground, prepared to attack the humans once and for all, but he was defeated by the SSSP's freezing guns. Kiyla then appeared and planned to do what his enemy could not, but Shin Hayata transformed into Ultraman to ward Kiyla off. The two fought, and Ultraman seemed to have the upper hand, until Kiyla began blasting him with his blinding flashes. Unable to see, Ultraman was assaulted with a flurry of attacks from Kiyla, throwing him to the ground and forcing him to suffer more attacks until his eyesight returned. When it did, Ultraman used the Ultra Catch Ray V2 to throw Kiyla into the distance and make it explode, allowing the SSSP to escape.

He of the Sun

A year later, Kiyla was featured in an episode of Toho's very first television series, titled He of the Sun. Although primarily a television drama, Kiyla's addition to the show made the episode reminiscent of a classic kaiju film, with Kiyla pitted against Gaira. The two monsters briefly engaged in a dramatic conflict, making it the first time both companies allowed one of their monsters to come in contact with one another.
