Ultraman 80

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ultraman_80.png

Voiced by: Hasunori Hasegawa
The last of the original generation of Ultra heroes to come to Earth and the first one to be seen since Ultraman Leo left five years ago, Ultraman 80 studies Minus Energy — a dark energy formed from negative emotions and evil deeds — and specializes in fighting kaiju formed from this energy. As a teacher on the Land of Light, he takes the form of a schoolteacher named Takeshi Yamato, hoping to pass the ideals of the Ultramen to Earth children. He is one of the less popular Ultra heroes, so he doesn't appear as frequently as most others, but is often seen alongside the classic heroes.


  • Badass Teacher: Is a teacher both on his home planet and Earth. In fact, his entire plan is to teach human children to be more positive and kind to counter Minus Energy. Given it's a long time until Earth faces monsters and aliens again after his departure, one can't argue with the results.
  • Demoted to Extra: Ultraman 80 is not the most publicized main series Showa Ultra. Aside from his appearances on Ultraman Mebius, he has only made two different appearances in film, both of which are Ultraman Zero films.

Yullian

  • Hollywood Acid: Hoe constantly cries tears of explosive acid.
  • Intangibility: Albeit only towards the majority of beam attacks. Punching and kicking him works fine though.
  • No-Sell: Due to the fact that Hoe is completely made of Minus Energy, most beam attacks phase through its body.

  • Blow You Away: Like all winged kaiju, Zandrias and his mother can create hurricanes by flapping their wings.

  • Breath Weapon: Breathes a heat beam.
  • Came from the Sky: Zandrias lands on Earth in the form of a meteorite before proceeding with throwing his tantrums.
  • Eye Beams: Only the mother was shown using it, but it can be assumed the juvenile also had the ability as well.
  • Giant Flyer: Both mother and son.

Alien Bam

First Appearance: The Boy from the Stars
An alien monster that was suddenly beamed down to Earth one night by mysterious extraterrestrial invaders (who left shortly after sending the monster out).

Noiseler

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/noiseler.PNG

Tabra

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/tabra.jpg

Jakki

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/jakki.jpg

First Appearance: The Visitor from Space
Alma's snail-like pet, which she brought with her to help examine Earth's Minus Energy. However, Jakki absorbs too much Minus Energy during Alma's stay on Earth, turning it evil and causing it to run away and create the monster Zruzular.
  • Energy Absorption: Jakki absorbs the Minus Energy generated from what it witnesses (like two men fighting over a car accident or kids bickering over a pencil), which is how it becomes corrupted.
  • Flying Seafood Special: Capable of flying about despite resembling a sea snail, which is how it escapes so quickly from Alma.

Zruzular

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/zuruzla3.jpg

First Appearance: The Visitor from Space

  • Making a Splash: Like normal elephants, Zruzular can suck up water and spray it from his trunk, which he uses in his battle against UGM.
  • The Power of Hate: Zruzular is normally just a zoo elephant. It only became a Minus Energy monster as a result of accidentally consuming Jakki during its lunch when Alma's pet was corrupted by Minus Energy into an evil monster.

Medan

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/medan.jpg

  • Breath Weapon: Breathes poison gas, but only by consuming enough chemicals to create its toxic gases.
  • From a Single Cell: Medan can reform from being blown to pieces.
  • Kill It with Ice: Medan's regeneration is powered by heat, so UGM employs freeze missiles to help 80 kill the monster permanently.

  • Sea Monster: Originated from the ocean and strongly resembles some kind of fish.

Gorah

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/gora.png

  • Cyclops: They have a single red eye.

Salamandoras

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/salamandora.png

First Appearance: Formation Yamato
The Gorgon aliens' weapon of choice. Salamandoras' only weak point is a patch on its throat, and to make matters worse, its masters keep some of its DNA with them to completely regenerate the monster whenever necessary.

Salamandoras is also one of the few Ultraman 80 monsters to appear against other Ultra heroes, but references to its alien masters were dropped with the regeneration reworked into a natural ability caused by the throat patch actually being a highly sensitive organ that allows for the regeneration.


Zarudon

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/zarudon.jpg

  • Tragic Monster: Myu was a completely peaceful creature captured, experimented, and tortured by an unscrupulous scientist into a kaiju.

A powerful monster imprisoned long ago by the Ruria aliens in a snowflake-like object dubbed the "Snow Art" by the Earthlings who discovered it. Unfortunately, humans studying the object accidentally free it, allowing it possess Emi and cause havoc in the city.
  • Demonic Possession: Upon escaping, Devilon takes over the body of Emi to manifest in a physical form and wreak havoc on Japan.
  • Mind Control: Uses this on UGM to make them attack Ultraman 80 during their battle.
  • Our Demons Are Different: As it's name suggests, it's very demon-like in nature, being an ancient and powerful evil with the ability to possess people. However, Devilon is purely extraterrestrial in origin rather than a supernatural entity.
  • Sealed Evil in a Can: Was imprisoned in a snowflake-like object by Alien Ruria, but ultimately escaped as a result of human curiosity and a fascination for the prison's beauty.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": Also called Debiron, due to the common confusion between "B" and "V", as well as "L" and "R", in translating Japanese to English.

  • Was Once a Man: Chief Ito had taken a vacation to the resort island that Gimyra had taken over, turning the second-in-command of UGM into the first victim of his monster-mutating powers. Fortunately, he still retains a shred of his human memories that UGM and Sawako are able to unlock and bring him to his senses.

Daron

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/daron.jpg

First Appearance: Flight to the Eerie Monster Island Pt. 1
An octopus-like monster of unknown origin under the control of Gimyra. It appears out of the sea to help Raburas battle Ultraman 80, but is destroyed at the end of the fight when Raburas turns against him.

  • Giant Squid: Is an octopus kaiju.
  • Giant Space Flea from Nowhere: Daron is never indicated to be a former human like Raburas and just suddenly appears from the ocean to help him battle Ultraman 80. All that is really clear about this guy is that it was under the control of Gimyra.

  • Breath Weapon: Breathes an explosive and poisonous gas.
  • Everything's Better with Dinosaurs: Especially if they're vampire space dinosaurs!
  • Horn Attack: Gimyra can fire a blue energy beam from his horn. And like Gomora in Ultra Galaxy Mega Monster Battle, his favorite tactic is to impale the enemy with his horn and charge energy through it into their bodies for massive damage.
  • Mind Control: Gimiyra's primary ability is to mentally subjugate both humans and other monsters, so long as he has already drank some of their blood.
  • Overly Long Tongue: Which he uses to drink the blood of his slaves. It also has multiple tips and can be used like an electrified whip.
  • Our Vampires Are Different: While he obviously doesn't resemble anything like a traditional vampire, Gimyra's bloodsucking traits (even leaving strange bitemarks) and his ability to mind control people or transform them into monsters after drinking their blood are very reminiscent of one.
  • Shock and Awe: Gimyra's tongue can conduct electricity to shock foes.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": Also spelled as Gimaira, Gimira, and Gymaira.

Gauss

First Appearance: Shine On, Space G-Man of L85!
Played by: Takeshi Obayashi (voice and suit actor)
A member of the Space G-Men, an alien organization much like the Ultramen in that they specialize in keeping peace by fighting giant monsters. Zuckal is a longtime member of the organization with a vendetta against the monster Gamos, but with retirement coming soon, he comes to Earth on a solo pursuit, refusing to let Ultraman 80 get in his way.
  • Anti-Hero: Although Zuckal serves in an organization with many of the same goals as the Ultramen and is quite admirable in his quest to kill Gamos, he is so consumed by revenge that he refuses to let even Ultraman 80 stand in his way, despite Takeshi's requests to assist him.
  • Hulking Out: He can transform into a giant, monstrous version of himself, but doing so will kill him, so he only saves it for what he believes will be his final battle with Gamos.
  • It's Personal: He despises Gamos vehemently because the monster attacked his homeworld and killed his wife and children.
  • Ursine Aliens: Resembles a mix of a bear and some kind of small dog.

Gamos

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/gamos.jpg

First Appearance: Shine On, Space G-Man of L85!

  • Everything's Better with Dinosaurs: Looks like a bog-standard dinosaur-type kaiju until Ultraman 80 busts its armour open.

  • Humongous Mecha: It's a giant robot ship that increases its mass by amassing other ships!

  • Breath Weapon: Breathes fire.

  • The Heartless: Being a Minus Energy Monster and all that.
  • The Juggernaut: Ultraman 80 had a lot of trouble with this guy until he discovered its Achilles' Heel as Gazera was unfazed by even the Saxium Beam. Part of the problem was that the kid who built the monster toy Gazera possessed had fantasized the creature as being powerful enough to defeat Ultraman 80, and Gazera was perfectly willing to make that a reality.

Angoras

  • Breath Weapon: Obviously, he breathes fire, but Fire-Draco can also shoot a beam of energy from his red head.
  • Multiple Head Case: Each of Fire-Draco's three heads has its own personality, appearance, and powers. In fact, when the monster was originally defeated long ago, the heads' souls reincarnated as three separate humans.
  • Our Dragons Are Different: While his body is fairly typical for a kaiju and name is suggestive of a western dragon, all three of Fire-Draco's heads are modeled after Japanese dragons.
  • Playing with Fire: The red head breathes fire, as the monster's name suggests. Helps that Kubiryu, the red head's reincarnation, is a fire-eater.
  • Sealed Evil in a Can: Fire-Draco's essence was sealed inside a magical gemstone by the priest who defeated him originally, but as legend prophesied, the monster would be reborn if its reincarnations managed to get a hold of the jewel.

He even helps Ultraman 80 against the other two heads during their battle, allowing 80 to eventually separate Mitsuo from the monster to continue living his life as a human.
  • Use Your Head: The blue head can swing itself like a club to bash opponents, which in its human reincarnation, Takeshi, comes in the form of being able to bend steel with his forehead.

Voiced by: Mizuzi Tetsuo (first appearance), Minoru Nishimura (second appearance)

  • Shrink Ray: The second Baltan uses this ability to kidnap kids and stuff them into a giant bag.

Gosdon

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/gosdon_i.jpg

  • Gentle Giant: Fortunately for 80, Barebadon is a completely peaceful creature that only comes to Earth every fifty to sixty years to rest during its intergalactic wanderings. The only reason why Takeshi had to even transform was to get the monster to spit out the toy plane it had swallowed by accident.

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/zurasuimar.jpg

First Appearance: Kannon is the Strongest

  • Genie in a Bottle: He resides in a clay vase.
  • Our Genies Are Different: Marjinn is a very human-like genie (except for the bright facial markings around his eyes) and can grant as many wishes as he pleases. Additionally, he is imprisoned in a vase instead of a lamp and destroying the vase will free him from having to grant wishes.

Right: Minazma

First Appearance: 80's Greatest Challenge
A pair of extremely powerful Minus Energy monsters and the final ones to be spawned in an attempt to defeat Ultraman 80 once and for all. Their combined threat was so great that it forced Yullian to come in help 80 fight for the first and last time.

  • The Juggernaut: Both monsters are pretty tough individually, but together they proved to be among Ultraman 80's most powerful enemies, forcing Ryoko to become Yullian for the first time.
  • The Heartless: Like all Minus Energy Monsters.
  • Punny Name: Plazma and Minazma, or Plus and Minus.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": Minazma or Minuzma?
  • Those Two Bad Guys: Plazma and Minazma are brothers spawned from Minus Energy in one last attempt to destroy Ultraman 80.
  • Too Many Mouths: Plazma has three mouths stack on top of each other.

Margodon

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/margodon_new.jpg

First Appearance: Oh No! All the Animals Have Been Frozen!
A mammoth-like alien monster whose presence saps all heat from the air and turns the surroundings into ice. Margodon is notable for being the final monster of the Showa era of the Ultra Series and for the next 25 years in-universe.
  • Achilles' Heel: Margodon's heat-draining abilities means its body is extremely brittle.
  • An Ice Person: Margodon's presence freezes its surroundings as the monster completely drains all heat from the air. Also, it shoots freezing gas from its trunk.
  • Fake Ultimate Mook: Despite being the final opponent of the series (and of the next sixteen yearsnote ), Margodon is destroyed by UGM without ANY help from Ultraman 80 or Yullian. However, UGM had requested Takeshi and Ryoko not to transform as they wanted to prove that humanity no longer needed the protection of the Ultramen and would be able to take care of any future monsters by themselves.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: The same freezing gas that Margodon uses turns out to be the perfect way to defeat it, thanks to its extremely brittle body.
  • Literally Shattered Lives: UGM destroys Margodon by using a gigantic wrecking ball to smash it to pieces
