Body Parts

As stated in his first appearance, Tyrant was created by the souls of Monsters who were killed in the past by the Ultras who visited Earth previously. They grudge against the Ultras manifested into the Chimera Monster known as Tyrant, and the Chimera Monster was born on the planet Neptune. The souls that make up the monsters are as follows:

In some early magazines, one of Tyrant's horns was said to have been derived from Black King, although this has long since been written out of Tyrant's backstory.

Ultra Galaxy Mega Monster Battle: Never Ending Odyssey

Tyrant reappeared in the series, Ultra Galaxy Mega Monster Battle: Never Ending Odyssey. He appeared in episodes 6 and 7, "The Strongest Reionyx" and "The Second Awakening" (respectively).[1]

In this series, Tyrant was the first Monster that belonged to a Reiblood Alien Keel named "Grande," who was on Planet Hammer. Tyrant was first used against Rei when Grande first encountered him, intially believing he would be fun to fight against. Rei summoned his Gomora and the two monsters did battle. Gomora tried his best, but Grande, having already had his Battle Nizer upgraded into a Neo Battle Nizer, proved his superiority over Rei and Gomora as Tyrant easily pummeled Gomora without any signs of difficulty. Realizing that Gomora was losing badly, Rei was forced to call him back and summoned Eleking to fight instead. Like Gomora though, nothing Eleking could do could harm Tyrant due to the Chimera Monster's superior strength and after Grande decided it would be more fun to fight to the death, he ordered Tyrant to fight more seriously. Almost immediately, Tyrant's assaults on Eleking turned vicious, all while Rei is left to take hit-after-hit, unable to fight back. Even worse during their torture, Rei lost his Battle Nizer and was unable to retrieve it as Tyrant continued to pummel Eleking. Even with the ZAP SPACY arriving to try and weaken Tyrant by firing their missiles at it. Tyrant continued to show no signs of damage taken. Finally in one sick attack, Tyrant sliced Eleking's throat, and Eleking died from his injuries, leaving Rei comatose and Grande victorious, who took his leave by recalling Tyrant and taunting Rei for his inexperience.

In the following episode, after Rei awoken from his coma, Grande was seen having summoned Tyrant once more to fight off a fleet of Alien Pedan ships who were looking for Rei (and presumably Grande as well.) When Rei awoken and had his Battle Nizer upgraded into a Neo Battle Nizer, the two Reibloods did battle once more. This time though, Gomora was now on the same level of strength as Tyrant was, thus the two monsters' battle came to a Standstill. Finally during a beam battle between Tyrant's Flamethrower and Gomora's Super Oscillatory Ray, Gomora overpowered Tyrant's attack and the battle shifted to Gomora's favor from that point on. This time, Gomora pummeled Tyrant to a pulp, and using the same tactic they used on Bemstar on Boris, Litra transformed into Fire Litra and discharged a huge burst of Fire from its body towards Tyrant. Tyrant absorbed the attack and left himself wide open for Gomora to stab Tyrant with his horn, charging the Monster's innards with his Super Oscillatory Ray from the inside, destroying Tyrant.

Ultra Zero Fight

Tyrant reappeared in the segment series, Ultra Zero Fight.[2]

In this mini-series, Tyrant served as the "newest" member of Kaiser Darkness's servents known as the "Darkness Five." After Jathar's failure in stopping Ultraman Zero, the Ultra was confronted by the next member of the Darkness Five, an Alien Temperor known as "Villanius." To assist him in battling Zero, Villanius revived Tyrant and together they formed a pairing known as the "Ominous Duo." While Zero found their name humorous, Villanius and Tyrant together formed a much more threatening pair than Jathar alone was, and both Monster and Alien proceeded to double-team Zero in battle. Worse still, just as Zero was managing to overcome their assaults, he learned from the Darkness Five's (then) Leader, an Armored Mefilas named "Sly" has taken a hostage in the form of Zero's friend, Pigmon! Taken advantage of the Distraction, the rest of the Darkness Five appeared (excluding Sly) assisted Villanius and Tyrant in overwhelming Zero with no mercy.

Fortunately for Zero, backup had arrived in the form of his own team: The Ultimate Force Zero! Arriving to ward off the Darkness Five while Ultraman Zero went off to face Sly and rescue Pigmon, each member of each faction faced off fiercely with one another, with Tyrant facing Jean-Nine specifically. Afterwards, Tyrant and the rest of the Darkness Five were left to watch from afar once Ultraman Zero returned as Zero Darkness to fight and kill the members of the Ultimate Force Zero members (after Zero had been possessed by Ultraman Belial's Ghost.) However, once Zero Darkness transformed into Shining Zero after Zero expelled Belial from his body, Tyrant and the rest of the Darkness Five were forced to retreat in fear of being attacked by Zero next. The Darkness Five was last seen together having regrouped with a revived Ultraman Belial, waiting for the next time to fight Zero again.

Notes

  • The only part of Tyrant's body that is not confirmed to be made from are his feet.
  • Originally, Tyrant's Body Parts were chosen for different parts of his body:
    • Tyrant's Tail was to originally come from Hanzagiran.
    • Tyrant's Feet were to originally come from Barabas.
    • Tyrant's Arms were to originally come from Red King.
  • One Monster that has played an unusually part in the creation of Tyrant is the monster, Black King (from The Return of Ultraman.) A few magazine articles in the past have stated that Tyrant's second horn on his head was to have come from Black King's own horn, but as of Tyrant's newest appearance in Ultraman Ginga, Black King's inclusion has been proven false (or at the very least, retconned out.) Another possible theory to Black King's involvement in Tyrant's creation is possibly Tyrant's Feet. In the episode's original script, Two monsters were to be placed on Tyrant's head, one being Black King, and the other being a placeholder known as "XXX." In said script, Tyrant's feet was also labelled as "XXX."
