The Resisty is an organization created to overthrow the Irken Empire. They consist of various alien species, presumably those whose planets have been conquered by the Irkens, most likely during Operation Impending Doom II (given the presence of Lard Nar, whose home world was recently conquered by Invader Larb). Their first and only major appearance was in "Backseat Drivers from Beyond the Stars".

Their name, derived from the word "resistance", was originally chosen by Spleenk. However, the Resisty eventually realized that it was a stupid name, after they had identified themselves as such to the Almighty Tallest.


The Resisty made their first move by attacking the Massive, piercing a hole into the Massive's snack-filled hull so the Almighty Tallest would have no snacks, weakening them as well as giving the Resisty something to feed the "growing resistance". From the start, however, they botched the plan; even as they identified themselves to the Tallest, the Irken leaders started to power up their cannon to blow them up. Right when they were about to fire, Zim took remote control of the Massive and began trying to fly it to Earth.

The Resisty first attacked the Tallest's vessel with a Vortian ship, which was armed with four laser blasters on the tips of its wings, as well as one larger laser cannon resembling a hovering sphere at the back of the ship. Despite the Resisty's fire-power, it was no match for the Irken Armada. It had the power to carve lettering into the Massive's hull ("RESISTY ROCKS!"), and small dents, but apparently not enough force to pierce the Massive's side snack pods.

When the Resisty crew members had to abandon ship after the faulty power core of the Massive is transferred into their ship, they left via the ship's escape pods. The Vortian ship has "shrinky self-destruct" technology, which was put to use when it was caught in a pull towards Earth. Instead of allowing potential enemies to gain Vortian technology, Lard Nar opted for allowing the ship to shrink until it disappeared.

The Resisty logo can be seen in various places: Lard Nar's control panel, on the Shrinky Self-Destruct screen, on the back of the Vortian ship, and on the front of the escape pods. It appears to be the kid from "The Frycook What Came from All That Space" giving a thumbs up. The logo is sometimes accompanied by the slogan "RESIST OR DON'T" (much like the restaurant "Eat or die", changed from "Eat or Don't", from Jhonen Vasquez's other comic work, I Feel Sick).


Lard Nar

Main article: Lard Nar

The Resisty leader Lard Nar.

Lard Nar is a Vortian from the conquered planet of Vort. He is the captain of the Resisty. He commands the ship from a chair attached to the wall by a mechanical arm, allowing him to swivel around. Back in the day, Lard Nar worked for the Irkens in a military research station on Vort. He was part of the design team for the Massive, along with the Vortian who became Prisoner 777.

How about the PIRATE-MONKEYS!?

Lard Nar's right-hand cone, Shloonktapooxis, mans the laser cannon and makes useless, comic-relief comments. He is presumably second in command. He thought the "Pirate Monkeys" was an "awesome name" for the resistance. He's in charge of firing the lasers when the Massive first loses control. He also has the ability to levitate, however how he does this is unknown. He does not appear to have any limbs.

He makes a cameo in the restaurant Shloogorgh's Flavor Monster in the episode "The Frycook What Came from All That Space". His species name is unknown.


Main article: Spleenk

Spleenk is a Resisty member of an unknown species, although his planet is likely to be conquered, as he has a strong hatred for the Irken Empire, as do the rest of the Resisty. Spleenk is full of bad ideas which Lard Nar always listens to for some reason. He suggested attacking the Massive, which almost got them all killed, and he also suggested the name "The Resisty" for the resistance, which Lard Nar used. Spleenk appears to have four arms without thumbs. Spleenk may be third in command.


Main article: Ixane


This alien named Ixane wears a cloak that obscures what she looks like with only her eyes visible, similar to the Jawas in Star Wars. She is the only Resisty alien besides the vomiting blob that is clearly female.

She looks humanoid, although her skin color is unknown, as she is always in her cloak which may or may not be a common thing for her species. It's hinted that she may the fourth in command, as she's one of the few members of the Resisty whose name is known.

Names unknown


This member of the Resisty is a little green blob who vomits all over herself all the time. This alien is one of the few members that is clearly female, she looks similar to the mascot of the restaurant Shloogorgh's Flavor Monster from "The Frycook What Came from All That Space", and thus is possibly from the same species which may have been a marketing strategy by the Irkens as several members of this species are seen eating not only on Sizz-Lorr's restaurant but all over Foodcourtia.

This member of the Resisty has three heads. He set the blob girl upright after it fell over. He worked with Lard Nar and Zim in a science research lab. He also appeared in the angered crowd at the register in "The Frycook What Came From All That Space".
This member of the Resisty is a bug-like alien with fly like eyes, four legs and no arms and a horn like beard. Its appearance resembles a more insectoid version of the Irkens.

Another member of the Resisty has eyes similar to the Irkens and Abductors, appears to lack a mouth, has a long neck, a large, deformed head, exaggerated shoulders pads and pale skin.

Unknown Alien

This alien has its brain floating where its head would be. Its brains have many stimulant inputs, implying the body is robotic. It is one of the first Resisty members that the camera pans in on, manning the controls on board. This alien seems to have evolved to the point where it no longer needs a body, which makes the fact that it needs a robotic body quite strange.


This alien race is very robotic in appearance. It can be assumed that they are in fact robots created by another alien race that eventually inhabited another world that got conquered by the Irkens. There are at least two of them on the ship. They also hover. They are usually seen with the spider-like people.


There are a good deal of these spider aliens on the Resisty ship. Spleenk pushes through the crowd of them whenever he has something to say. This would've been a generic running gag had the show continued. They appear to be totally expressionless.


A few big-headed cloaked aliens sit at consoles. One of them activates the shrinky self-destruct. They seem to have hoods, but it's unclear whether that's clothing or skin coloration. They have points on the end of their heads, making them look similar to Dib.



In the cancelled two parter season two finale and the series finale "Invader Dib", it was to be revealed that the Meekrob were in league with the Resisty, as the Meekrob are sworn enemies of the Irken Empire, and are currently fighting in a war with them on their home planet. A plot speculation suggested they could have been banished to Saturn along with Dib and Tak, who teamed up to launch one final universe-wide attack against Zim and Gaz, as well as their forces.


  • It's unknown what planet if any the Resisty take residence on to plan out any other strikes against the Irken Empire, as it seems unlikely that they're permanently on Foodcourtia, seeing as it's under Irken control.
  • The Resisty were scheduled to return for the untitled season two finale as well as the "Invader Dib" movie, hence Lard Nar saying "You haven't seen the last of the Resisty!"
  • It is possible that the Resisty would have gotten new members by the point the Meekrob captured Invader Tenn.
