The Nazca Aliens are one-time characters, monsters (aliens), and the main villains of the episode, They Lurk Beneath from the first season of the animated series, Martin Mystery.


They are an alien race of conquerors who seek to take over the Earth.

Physical Appearance

The Nazca Aliens' body was humanoid, roughly the same height as a human. They had dark green skin, yellow glowing eyes, black side-hairs on their bald heads, three-fingered hands, two-toed feet and their entire body was constantly producing a thick light green slime which covered them from head to toe. Their brain glowed bright green when they were talking or using their psychic powers. They were always hunched over.


While the true name of their species was never given, all that is known about the Nazca Aliens' culture is their intentions to conquer the planet Earth and claim it for themselves. The reasons behind their plans to take over the world are never revealed either. They could easily understand and communicate in human dialects such as English or, presumably, Ancient Peruvian.

Role in the series


Having come to Earth thousands of years ago, the aliens resided under the Nazca Lines in Peru. It is unknown how they became trapped underground, though it is possible ancient Peruvians trapped them when they figured out the aliens' plans for this world. They required a special key which looked like a tablet to activate their technology. Without it, all they could do was go into suspended animation and wait until someone would find them using the key.

They Lurk Beneath

In the 21st century, an archaeologist, Professor Melanie Samson with the tablet in her possession accidentally triggered their alarm system during an expedition at the Nazca Lines and she was sucked underground and taken prisoner.

Her disappearance alerted the Center and M.O.M. sent Martin, Diana & Java to check it out. Upon their arrival, they too were sucked into the ground and discovered the aliens' ships. An alien appeared before them and tried to stop them, impressing Martin with its telekinetic powers. They managed to escape it and found Samson.

Hoping to find a way out while avoiding the aliens, Martin happened upon the hibernation facilities that contained hundreds of dormant aliens. The commander discovered him and revealed to him their intentions of invading the planet and how the tablet was in fact an activation key. The army began to awake, but Martin managed to snatch the key and all the hibernating aliens dissolved into puddles of slime. Enraged by this loss, the remaining aliens tried to prevent Martin's gang from getting away, only to end up trapped once again under the Nazca Plateau.

Powers and Abilities

The Nazca Aliens had highly developed brains which granted them the following psychic powers:

  • Telekinesis: an individual Nazca Alien possessed an advanced level of telekinesis, being able to levitate objects or people into the air and immobilize them. However, it could not control multiple people at once unless they were close.
  • Energy projection: They could fire destructive green laser beams of psionic energy from their heads.
  • Technopathy: They could psionically interface with their own technology and activate their ships mentally. However, their ships and all of their systems required the tablet to work.
