Monster Profile: GYANGO (Ultraman)

(ギャンゴ, Gyango)

Classification: Brain Wave Monster

A rock from space that can transform into whatever the holder wills ends up in the hands of a gangster. He wills it to become a bizarre giant monster dubbed Gyango. He uses Gyango to terrorize the Japanese suburbs. Unfortunately, when the gangster is put into a coma, Gyango doesn't disappear.

Ultraman is deployed to stop Gyango's wave of destruction. Fighting with a goofy, playful style, Gyango battles with Ultraman until the Science Patrol can find a way to wake the gangster from his coma and sever the mental connection with Gyango that's keeping it in monster form.

Height: 2.2 - 50 m (7-164 feet)

Weight: 60 - 60, 000 tons

Powers: As one form of the space rock, Gyango can technically transform into anything a human wishes.

Gango can summon any type of metal using his claws but this power is never used or referenced in the show.

First Appearance

Ultraman (1966) - "The Ruffian from Outer Space"

  • Gyango is built from the Bemular suit used in the very first episode of the 1966 Ultraman series.
