|Behind the Scenes|
|Universe||Men In Black Universe|
Arquillians are a species of hand-sized humanoids with greenish-white skin, a large head, large, blue eyes, and very long arms and legs. They wear a Human-sized mechanical suit, which is used for both protection and movement (also hiding their true identity). Much of their energy goes towards operating the mechanical human suit, but they also have an "autopilot" mode for making their life easier. To get the human suit to work, they have to download software programs to the brain. Too much information and the computer can have a meltdown, resulting in them divulging their true identity or catastrophic damage to the suit. They also apparently possess an extremely powerful weapon capable of destroying planets.
In the movie the MiB need to find the galaxy and return it to the Arquillians, who are threatening to annihilate Earth if it is not returned within a certain time period.
- A member of the Arqullian Royal Family was killed on Earth, resulting in its near destruction.
- In the Men In Black animated series it is revealed Martin Luther King Jr. and John Lennon were Arquillians. This probably means Mark David Chapman and James Earl Ray were the Fmeks, sworn enemies of the Arquillians.
