"Moving human capital beyond tomorrow."
―Company slogan

The Yutani Corporation was a Japanese cybernetics company.[1] It was officially founded in 2074,[2] although evidence suggests the company may have been operating in a clandestine fashion for some time before this.[3][4] The CEO, Yutani, acquired a Yautja Plasma Pistol originally from Wolf, the Yautja who arrived on Earth in 2004 to clean up the Xenomorph infestation in Gunnison, Colorado through Colonel Stevens and she utilized it to advance human technology.[5] By 2030, the company was known to do business with Borgia Industries.[3]

On December 12, 2029, the Yutani Corporation filed a lawsuit against Weyland Corp over a patent dispute with the David series. Weyland Corp won the David patent lawsuit years later.

In 2099, Weyland Corp supposedly acquired the Yutani Corporation in a hostile takeover, thus forming the Weyland-Yutani Corporation.[1] This was however, an inaccurate entry in the Weyland-Yutani Report of 2381, as it was actually the Yutani Corporation under Hideo Yutani's leadership that conducted a corporate takeover of Weyland Corp.[6]

Trivia

  • According to the Colonial Marines Technical Manual, the Yutani Corporation (or Yutani Corporation assets, following the merger with Weyland Corp) manufactured the faster-than-light drive fitted aboard the USCSS Nostromo.[7]
  • In Peter Briggs' unproduced Alien vs. Predator script, titled The Hunt: Alien vs. Predator, a "Yutani-Templin" company is mentioned, implying that the Yutani Corporation was involved in other corporate mergers in addition to its merger with Weyland-Yutani, and that these other conglomerates are still in operation. However, the exact nature of the company is never elaborated upon, and the script was never produced.
