Character History

Ultraman

Alien Baltan appeared a few times throughout his original debut in the original Ultraman series.

Alien Baltan I

In his original debut, Alien Baltan's race once lived in solitude on their own home planet until it was destroyed by a Mad Scientist in a Nuclear Test. Since the unfortunate event, the entire race of Baltans (which consisted of 2.3 Billion members and had shrunk down to the size of Bacteria to board a single ship) went on a long journey to seek out a new World to live on. During their journey, the Baltans' ship was pulled to Earth by the Planet's Gravitational Pull, causing it to become inoperable. During their stay on Earth, the Baltans' initially intended to look for a Diode, the one component that could fix their Ship so that they could continue their journey. However, the Baltans' quickly grew accustomed to Earth during their stay, thus the Aliens decided to live on Earth instead... No matter who stood in their way.

During their stay, a few members of the Alien Baltan emerged from the ship and hijacked a Science Center in the Heart of Tokyo, petrifying the other people who were still inside the Science Center. The Science Patrol was alerted of the Aliens' presence and they were sent to investigate. Arriving at the location, Arashi and several Defense Force members were attacked by the Alien Baltan, while Hayata managed to take out one of the Aliens. However he was unable to fight for long, and he was forced to retreat. Later that night, Hayata returned to the Science Center (this time with Ide) and the both of them were confronted by a hypnotized Arashi who was used as a translator for the Aliens to reveal their plan for taking the Earth for themselves. While Hayata insisted that the Aliens find their home on Mars due to Earth's population already being roughly the same as the Baltans, it fell on deaf ears, and the Alien became aggressive by attempting to attack the Science Patrol itself.

Hayata managed to drive the Alien away temporarily by hurling a Dagger at it, but Alien Baltan was now provoked and it took on a gigantic form to attack the Science Patrol instead! The Defense Force (who were also on the scene outside the Science Center) fired their Nuke: the "Hagetaka," at the Alien, but Alien Baltan managed to "molt" its damaged self and it recovered to resume attacking Tokyo before flying away! Realizing what had to be done, Hayata transformed into Ultraman to battle Alien Baltan himself! Ultraman and Alien Baltan engaged in an aerial battle above Tokyo until finally the Hero struck the Alien by blasting him with his Specium Ray, causing Alien Baltan to crash and burn to death. With the Alien Baltan no longer a threat, Ultraman found the Aliens' invisible ship which stored the Baltans' race, and the Hero took the ship off to a far away location to wipe out the Alien Baltan's race.

Or so he had hoped...

Alien Baltan II

In episode 16, (entitled "Science Special Search Party Into Space,") The Alien Baltan race was revealed to have survived their battle on Earth with Ultraman and Humanity, but only a small amount of them have survived and have found a new home on "Planet R" to sustain themselves. The Aliens however were still intent on taking the Earth for themselves, and now with their vendetta against humanity for nearly wiping out their race, two of the Alien Baltans ambushed the Otori, an Earth Rocket that was on its way to Venus. One of the Baltans kidnapped and possessed the only pilot on the rocket, Dr. Mori, taking control of the man's mind and body in order to distract the Science Patrol (who were en route to rescue the doctor.), while the other one was ordered to invade the Earth.

Falling for the disguise, the Science Patrol took Dr. Mori with them on their way back to Earth, but the doctor quickly sabotaged their plan and hijacked their VTOL, causing it to crash on Planet R itself! Now with the Science Patrol injured and stranded, Alien Baltan II took on his true form and attempted to kill the team by using his telepathy. Luckily, Hayata managed to shake off the alien's ambush and he transformed into Ultraman to fight the Alien himself! At first the battle was tricky for Ultraman as the new Baltan's Optical Barrier managed to reflect his Specium Ray back at him, and the Alien's telepathy kept Ultraman from getting close to battle. Ultraman however did not give up, and he then struck Alien Baltan II with the Ultra-Slash, which sliced the Alien down the middle and killed him! Meanwhile back on Earth, the 2nd Alien Baltan II's plan went into effect as it landed on Earth and began his attack by spliting itself into multiple tinier forms to attack multiple areas at once. Luckily he was confronted by Ide (who was left behind on Earth) and he managed to fend off a group of the smaller Baltans with his new weapon: the Mars-133.

Ultraman knew of the invasion going on on Earth too (earlier on, the Science Patrol found out of the Aliens' ploy) and using a rare but dangerous technique, Ultraman used teleportation to instantly appear on Earth so that he could help fend off the Invasion as well. However just before he arrived, the tinier Aliens recombined back into one form and Alien Baltan II confronted him instead. Like the one before him, Ultraman fought through the 2nd Alien's Optical Barrier and after catching it off guard, Ultraman sliced it down the middle with the Ultra-Slash and destroyed the two pieces with his Specium Ray, preventing it from spliting apart again, and ending the Alien's 2nd attack on Earth.

Alien Baltan III

Alien Baltan's last appearance was in episode 33, (entitled "The Forbidden Word") where another member of its race was kidnapped and held prisoner by Alien Mefilas sometime prior to the Alien's arrival on Earth. Upon Mefilas's arrival on Earth, the Alien used Alien Baltan III as his puppet (much like he did to Fuji, Alien Zarab II, and Kemur Man II) to demonstrate the power he was capable of inflicting onto Earth if humanity did not surrender to him. Alien Mefilas's plan was thwarted however, and the Alien's shipped was destroyed by both the Defense Force and the Science Patrol. What became of Alien Baltan III however was unknown, but it is most likely that he was killed by accident when Alien Mefilas's ship was destroyed.
