Mega Monster Battle: Ultra Galaxy Legends The Movie

Alien Nackle reappeared in the film, Mega Monster Battle: Ultra Galaxy Legends The Movie as one of Ultraman Belial's revived 100 Monster Army.

Alien Nackle teamed up with fellow aliens, Dada, Alien Babalou, and Alien Magma to take on Rei in the Monster Graveyard. He was eventually killed after Rei transformed into Reimon and knocked him into into a Rock Formation after a spin kick, causing Alien Nackle to explode.

Later, Alien Nackle joined the rest of Ultraman Belial's Monsters in forming the Conglomerate Monster, Beryudora. Alien Nackle is one of the monsters that makes up the left horn.

Ultraman X

Two Alien Nackle, one named "Bandello" (バンデロ - Bandero) and the other named "Nakuri" (ナクリ - Nakuri) appeared in the series, Ultraman X. Bandello appeared in episode 5, entitled "When the Aegis Shines," and Nakuri appeared in episode 9, entitled "We Are Nebula!".[2]


Bandello was an Intergalactic Arms' Dealer who had come to Earth to steal any valuable weapons that he could find. To protect him from anyone from stopping him, Bandello had brought with him a Black King to fend off anyone who could threaten him. As Black King was battling against Ultraman X, Bandello took out Wataru of Xio and grew into his giant form to assist Black King in double-teaming Ultraman X. Ultraman X was quickly overwhelmed by the combined efforts of Bandello and Black King and was left weakened and unable to fight back. Suddenly before Bandello could leave with Xio's Spark Dolls, a portal opened up in the sky and out of it appeared Ultraman Zero! The newly arrived Ultra proved to be much stronger than X and even managed to break off Black King's horn with his Ultra Zero Kick. As Zero was busy however, Bandello took advantage of the distraction to steal the Spark Dolls (along with a frightened Rui of Xio,) and together both Alien Nackle and the injured Black King retreated to Planet Gilmo, with Ultraman Zero in hot pursuit.

On Planet Gilmo, Bandello was soon caught in a game of "Cat and Mouse" with Rui, after the young Scientist managed to (albeit clumsily) steal back the Weapons and Spark Dolls that Bandello stole. When Bandello offered her to work alongside him, Rui refuseed, causing Bandello to sadistically attack her. Before he could finish her off, Ultraman Zero arrived on Gilmo to re-confront the Alien Nackle. Bandello then unleashed the now-upgraded "Black King Drill Custom" to assist him, and like X, Bandello and Black King Drill Custom proceeded to double-team Zero in battle. During the fight however, Ultraman X arrived on Gilmo too, now wearing an Aegis Armor much like Zero! Working together, Ultramen Zero and X battle against Bandello and Black King Drill Custom. Ultimately, neither Alien Nackle nor Monster were any match for the Ultras, and Bandello was destroyed by a combination of Ultraman Zero attacks in his Strong Corona and Luna Miracle Modes and finished off with the Zero Twin Shoot.


In contrast, Nakuri was a much more friendlier alien of his species, who had already been spending some time on Earth, living with fellow aliens Ikari and Haruki in their home, "The Nebula House." However with the aliens in need of money to survive, they took in ex-Rugby Player, Isamu as their new tenant to help them. Isamu eventually found out that they were aliens in disguise, but upon noticing the aliens' kind demeanor even when disguised as humans, he saw a different side to them and continued to stay with them. Eventually, the Nebula House Aliens' true identities were exposed when they were visited by the sudden appearance of Haruki's pet Samekujira, Jolly, (who appeared from a small meteor that crashed into their home while they were eating lunch.) Fearing that Isamu would react hostily towards their true selves, the Aliens fled the scene, only to run into both Xio and the Criminal Gang known as "the Dark Star Cluster," who had arrived to take Jolly to sell it. Not wanting to give up their pet, The Nebula House instead challenged the Dark Star Cluster to a game of Rugby (hoping to take advantage of Wataru's brother, Isamu's rugby skills against them,) to which the Dark Star Cluster agreed to participate in, in 3 days.

Come the day of the event, the Dark Star Cluster easily outwitted and overpowered the Nebula House aliens by using cheap tactics and their own superpowers to help themselves for the first half of the game, ultimately ending the first half of the game with a staggering score of 51-0. During the second half however when the Dark Star Cluster continued to cheat with the help of their Alien Akumania referee, Isamu's became fired up from the frustration being caused to him by the Dark Star Cluster and his newfound ambition allowed him to turn the tables on the team, bringing the score to 51-52, leaving the Nebula House Aliens victorious. Despite being victorious though, the Dark Star Cluster didn't take losing lightly, and they took on their Giant Forms to crush everyone in attendance. Luckily, Daichi transformed into Ultraman X and after shortly tangling with all four Aliens at once, Ultraman X activated his Gomora Armor and sent all four aliens flying away with Gomora's Oscillation Wave.

With the Dark Star Cluster gone and Jolly safe again, Isamu resumed his Rugby career, while Nakuri, Ikari, and Haruki resumed living their quiet but happy lives in secrecy.
