Ultraman X - "Jolly"

Samekujira jolly - ultra series

"Jolly," Haruki's Pet Samekujira.

A younger Samekujira named "Jolly" appeared in the series, Ultraman X.[1]

In this series, Jolly was the pet of an Alien Valkie named "Haruki" who lived in the Nebula House along with Alien Icarus "Ikari", Alien Nackle "Nakuri", and Isamu. Because it was still a baby though, Jolly was rather docile and was the source of Haruki's love and affection. However, Jolly was also being targeted by the Crime Organization, the "Dark Star Cluster" which consisted of Alien Babalou, Alien Zetton, Kemur Man, and Dada, who wanted to use Jolly as a Weapon. It was decided that Jolly's fate would be held over a game of Rugby (which Isamu and Alien Babalou were skilled players of,) with the winners getting possession over Jolly. Fortunately, the Dark Star Cluster were defeated by Nebula House, and the Criminals themselves were driven off by Ultraman X himself. With Jolly now safe, the Samekujira would go on to live the rest of its days with Haruki and the others in the Nebula House.We Are Nebula!
