Keylla is a space monster dwelling on Planet Q to which humans sent a space probe named Prospector.

It emits such an intense flashlight from the big eyes as to blind people temporarily who have looked at it.

Besides the eyes, it’s characterized by the slated, segmented body like a sea slater and the face which makes us imagine a longicorn beetle.


It went into battle with Saigo, another monster living on Planet Q.

Although the big-eyed monster was almost overwhelmed by Saigo initially, the eye flash caused Saigo to run away into underground.

Contrary to appearances, Keylla is such a strong monster that the Needle S80, (as always) new weapon invented and developed by Ide, Ultra Slash and Spaceum Beam had no effect on it.

But it’s often the case with Ultraman that he uses a technique unseen before all of a sudden in such a critical situation.

Keylla was hurled into space by Ultra Psychokinesis and exploded eventually.

Although I think it’s an attractive monster with the characteristic big eyes, along with the darkness of Plant Q, it is regrettable Keylla was not such an impressive monster somehow.

But the story of this episode depicting the activities of the SSSP on another planet in space is much fun.
