Alien and Kaiju[edit]

Listed in the order of appearance.

Alien Valkie[edit]

バルキー星人

GingaChara Alien Valkie.png

  • Voiced by: Hashimoto Tatsuya (橋本達也)
  • Height: 49m (In doll form: 14cm)
  • Weight: 22000t (In doll form: 150g)
  • Originated Series: Ultraman Taro
  • Information: First appeared in episode 1. Revived from doll form by the Dark Power to do his bidding.
  • Trivia::
  1. Alien Valkie is a space fisherman. He came to earth in Ultraman Taro to hunt the Samekujira to make his mark in the universe. Alien Valkie made his next appearance in Ultraman Mebius episode 16 as one of the aliens fighting Zamusha.
  • Translation trivia:
  1. Technically, Alien Valkie's name ought to be "Being from Valkie". バルキー星 = Planet of Valkie, while 人 = Man/Being. A more 'accurate' translation might be "Valkyrian" or "Valkierian". However, since "Alien Valkie" is rather established in the Ultraman fanbase, I went with that instead. In general, when there's 星人 (seijin) in the kaiju's name, it's usually translated as "Alien". For example, "Alien Baltan" is actually "Baltan Seijin".
  2. Another translation you'll find online would be "Alien Valky".

Black King[edit]

ブラックキング

GingaKaiju Black King.png

  • Originated Series: In Ultraman Dyna as Darambia
  • Information: First appeared in episode 1. Transformed from two illegal junk disposal trader. It's able to generate lighting attacks from the horns on its back.
  • Trivia:
  1. This Darambia is actually the fourth incarnation of Darambia. The first Darambia is a gour-legged monster that kinda looks like a spider. The second Darambia is Neo Darambia, which is a bipedal dinosaur-like, recreated from the remains of Darambia. Neo Darambia II is simply a black-colored Neo Darambia (Neo Darambia I is light brown in color). Thunder Darambia is basically a slight modification of Neo Darambia, the major change being that the back of Thunder Darambia has been modified to look like lightning conductor rods.

  • Translation trivia:
  1. The Ultraman fans have long called it as "Kemur Man". However, this isn't a very accurate translation. A more accurate translation would be "Man from Kemur", which is quite a mouthful. Possible translations include "Kemurroid", "Kemurloid", "Kemurrian", "Kemurlian". I went with "Kemurloid" instead.
