50~Season 3 - Richard Kiel plays Malak in two episodes and is simply horrible - its not clear why the Sleestak fear him

Malak, the self-proclaimed "God of the Cro-Magnon" from the Land of the Lost (1974 TV series), is a bit of a cypher.


For a Cro-Magnon, Malak was quite evolved and possesses knowledge more on a Bronze Age level as he carried a sword, knew what a ship is, and has the ability to divert an underground river into the Sleestak egg caves if they didn't pay him tribute.

In addition, he spoke fluent English and fully understood the concept of time travel as he once asked Jack Marshall what age and time he came from. Malak claimed to be "King of the Teutons".

  • While Malak's true origins and title (if any) remain unknown, it is clear he was an opportunistic barbarian not above lying, stealing, threatening, or bullying people to get what he wanted.
  • How and when Malak came to the Land of the Lost is never revealed.
