|Behind the Scenes|
Megamind's Species are a fictional sapient race of aliens which first appear in DreamWorks' animated film Megamind. They are now mostly extinct and the last, most famous member of them is Megamind himself.
Megamind's Species are a sapient race of blue-skinned humanoids from a planet in the Glaupunk Quadrant that conjure several similarities with the Greys, particularly the over-sized head typical of that species. Judging from their large heads, it can be assumed they have an equally big brain and are quite intelligent; which is evident in Megamind being able to easily build advanced technology even as an infant. There is also evidence that they are able to retain memories since very early in life, as Megamind clearly remembers his first thoughts and the details of his home world's destruction despite being a newborn then. Not much is known about their culture, but they are shown to be greatly technologically advanced and are caring, loving parents. They are also able to grown facial hair, like mustaches, beards and goatees, and also possess eyebrows, but have no hair on their scalps, not even on the females. They are vaguely similar to Gallaxhar's species, both being blue-skinned and large-headed, and are nowadays extinct because their home world was sucked by a huge black hole, being destroyed in the process.
The species home world shared its star system/galaxy, the Glaupunk Quadrant, with the home world of the species from which Metroman is a member. If there was any contact between these two species we do not know just as we know not how the black hole which destroyed both worlds spawned. It seems to have been rather sudden as the opening scene of the film which is set on the home world starts off rather peaceful before alarms of panic are sounded and a sudden jolt (the instant pull of the black hole) takes effect. If either species was indirectly or directly responsible we may never know. It could have been anything from a science experiment gone wrong, a natural formation that the planetary authority chose to ignore, or a weapon of war deployed against them. Regardless of this speculation one has to take into consideration that Megamind's parents had a pod prepared for their son which implies some awareness of things to come.
