Phenomena in artwork: The Alien

The real aliens in this movie are the earthlings who arrived on the planet Mongo in a spaceship. There they meet aliens of several types:

  • Emperor Ming and his subjects, who look like regular people. Ming calls himself the Emperor of the Universe, and all the other aliens treat him with respect, that does not prevent them to attack the forces of the Emperor their flying ships.
  • People-Lions, which look like regular people with dense vegetation on the head.
  • People-the Hawks, whose back grow huge wings like the wings of birds. They can fly and live in a city floating in the clouds thanks to the antigravity beam, powered by the energy of constantly operating nuclear furnaces.

All the aliens speak English. Their technology is developed stronger than humans: they use beam weapons, and the Emperor Ming and the People-lion has a fleet of flying ships. He Ming can control the trajectory of the planet Mongo in space. The clothing of the aliens is similar to ancient apparel earthlings.

In addition to intelligent humanoids on the planet and is inhabited by wild beasts, for example giant lizards attacking the Terran ship immediately after arrival, or horned gorilla with which Flash grapple in mortal combat.

Phenomena in artwork: UFO

In the film there are several types of aircraft.

First of all it is a space rocket, built by Dr. Surkovym where the Terrans arrive on the planet Mongo. Other devices are the alien ships used mainly for military purposes.

The flying ships of the Emperor of Migna in appearance it is very similar to a space rocket earthlings. Ships of People-lions represent the inverted cones and superficially resemble a flying saucer, which will become very popular in 10-15 years.

It is unknown whether they can fly into space, because the film is not demonstrated. Perhaps the aliens are simply not required, as they move around the space, changing the trajectory of the planet Mongo.
