Character History

Ultraman 80

Gymaira was a monster who came to Earth from space 20 years ago, chasing after an alien woman named Sawako. Upon landing on Earth, Gymaira took up residence inside of a massive cave on Shiokaze Island, where he would feed on the humans' blood through the use of his hypnotic gases to give himself the energy he needed for the next 20 years. During Ultraman 80’s time, one of UGM's members named chief Ito was sent to investigate the island, only for Ito to be mutated into the monster Lovrus by Gymaira, whom had felt threatened by his intrusion. Shortly after, UGM visited the island too to look for Ito. Gymaira would try to drive off UGM from his feeding grounds by means of using the island's hypnotized tourists to attack them, as well as calling upon Lovrus, and the octopus monster Daron to eliminate UGM. However, Ultraman 80 managed to defeat Daron in battle and Lovrus was left to wander away in pain.

Finally while Gymaira was feeding on his hypnotized tourists yet again, the vengeful Sawako journeyed into his cave with a powerful explosive that belonged to UGM, and she detonated it as Gymaira was feeding. Enraged, Gymaira burst out of the cave to attack his provokers himself. At first, the SDF tried to fight off Gymaira, but it was no good due to the space monster's immense strength. Takeshi was able to transform into Ultraman 80 to do battle against the space monster, but again, Gymaira's strength allowed him to overpower 80. Then after Gymaira whipped out his long tongue and started electrocuting 80, Lovrus returned from before and quickly saved 80 by stabbing Gymaira in the neck. Despite Lovrus's heroic efforts though, it only provoked Gymaira into attacking him instead. The sadistic monster bombarded Lovrus with its hypnotic gas and its tail before stabbing Lovrus with its horn and charging its innards, killing Lovrus and Ito in the process. Having witnessed what had happened, 80 was determined to avenge him, and using the last of his available strength, the Ultra obliterated Gymaira with his Moonsault Kick.

Weapons and Abilities

  • Tongue: Gymaira uses his tongue to suck the blood out of his victims to give him energy. Gymaira's tongue also can electrocute any opponent he ensnares with it.
  • Poisonous Gas/Fog: Gymaira can spew a white gas from his mouth. Breathing in the gas causes its victim to fall into a hypnotic state and is placed under Gymaira's control (This can be conquered by either possessing a strong will or a certain amount of pain.) It also has highly explosive properties.
  • Monsterified Ray (怪獣化光線 - Kaijūka Kōsen): Gymaira can fire a purple bolt of energy from the tip of his horn. Being struck by the ray will cause anyone to mutate into a monster that will serve Gymaira. This ray however does not affect inorganic material.
  • Physical Strength: Gymaira's strength is considerably impressive, being able to overpower Ultraman 80 with relative ease.
