Alien Keel (キール星人 Kīru Seijin) are a race of aliens that are first mentioned in episode 21 of the TV series, Ultra Q, but made their physical appearance in Ultra Galaxy as Vittorio in game and manga, and Grande in live-action.
Subtitle: Alien Strategist (戦略星人 Senryaku Seijin)
Although despite not appearing physically in the series, the Alien Keel (according to Alien Ruperts) are described as being a belligerent and barbaric race of aliens that thrive on war and hatred. They had already ravaged the home planet of the Alien Ruperts and had planned to assault Earth with their weapon, the Stingray monster Bostang. Fortunately, their plan failed when Bostang was killed by Japan's SDF, and the Alien Keel were never mentioned again.
- Alien Keel's name is based on the English word kill.
- Alien Keel is one of the few Ultra Kaiju that do not possess a subtitle. This remained until Ultraman Taiga's airing, where the official website finally gave them one.
