The Chitauri are a race of cybernetically enhanced humanoid creatures. The Chitauri exist in a hivemind and follow Thanos. Notably, they were involved in the Chitauri Invasion of Earth.

General information and biology[edit | edit source]

Chitauri are humanoid beings. Though they all share the same body structure, many varieties exist, due to the caste-like system that governs the Chitauri. Each Chitauri serve a collective role given by the Chitauri mothership.

Due to their cybernetic enhancements, Chitauri are capable of scaling buildings. They are given these enhancements at a young age using electronic neural networks and armor.

The Chitauri possess various weapons, including Chitauri bombs, Chitauri battle spears, Chitauri guns, and the Scepter, the latter of which was given to Loki.

The Chitauri are susceptible to a virus known as the Chitauri virus, which affects the nervous system and causes immediate death in humans.
