Kang is a Rigellian from Rigel VI. His sister/brother is Kodos. Together, Kang and Kodos try to take over Earth and are usually seen attacking Springfield.

He went to summer camp with Roger and are friends with Lrrr and Ndnd

Kang & Kodos have a lot of space weaponry at hand and have their own spaceship. They speak the Rigellian language, which, by coincidence, is identical to English. Although they look identical, Kang has a deeper voice than Kodos.


Kang once impersonated Bill Clinton in order to become elected President of the United States, in Treehouse of Horror VII's Citizen Kang/Mr. Kang goes to Washington. When Kang was revealed to be an alien, he was still more popular than a third party.

Kang and Kodos have both ruled over Springfield until they were found out to not be welcome and fled from their primitive weapons.

The Simpsons GameEdit

Kang (along with Kodos) appears at the end of Mob Rules, when they cause Dolphins to attack humans, cause Lard Lad to assault the industrial zone of Springfield, and invade the mall. However, when they were thwarted, they decided to start attacking Springfield. This causes the Simpson family to enter the game engine to find Matt Groening, but Groening wasn't enough to defeat the aliens because he didn't want to. Soon after God is defeated, God decides to replenish Springfield, returning peace to the city.

Notes Edit

  • Matt Groening had an idea about Kang and Kodos appearing on Futurama, but strangely they never did.
  • In the video game, Simpsons Hit & Run, Kodos works with Kang to make an Intergalactic reality show in Springfield, Foolish Earthlings and is killed in the production due to the actions of Homer's plans of using nuclear waste to destroy the UFO.


  1. While both have been referred to as a male, in "Treehouse of Horror VII" Kodos was introduced as Kang's sister. However, this has been contradicted in several episodes both before and since. The episode "Simpsorama" refers to both of them as female.
