The Aliens ( エイリアン , Eirian) are the main antagonists in the Tokyo Mew Mew series.
The Alien's Purpose
They arrive on Earth wishing to "reclaim" it. Apparently, the alien's ancestors lived on Earth three million years ago. However, they left after a series of disasters that nearly led to their extinction. The aliens ended up on an unnamed planet which had an inhospitable surface environment, so they were forced to live underground. There were also sandstorms and high temperatures. The aliens never forget about Earth and later return, but were horrified by humanity and felt as if the humans were destroying the planet. The aliens then decided to use Chimera Animas to speed up the humans' damage to the Earth's environment so that they could destroy all life and finally reclaim the planet as theirs again.
The Alien's Defeat
The first alien to return was Deep Blue. He took the form of a human boy and went to sleep within him. Quiche, Pie and Tart arrived later to remove all the humans from Earth and allow the remaining aliens to return. The Mew Mews defeated Deep Blue and the aliens, so in the end they returned to their own planet. They took some Mew Aqua with them so they could make their world as beautiful as Earth is.
In most of the Mew Mew Power dubs, the aliens are named "Cyniclons" and their history is changed so that they came from an uninhabitable planet and, jealous of the humans, decided to conquer the Earth and make it their new home. The name "Cyniclon" is a pun on the word cynical.
