The many, many incarnations of Ultraman over the decades gave fans a decorative Rogue’s Gallery of foes, most of whom were out to destroy Earth or conquer it. The show’s writers were careful to give them all distinctive names, which, oddly, the attack teams somehow always knew despite never seeing that monster before. Most sounded Japanese, such as Gomora, Dorako or Saigo. Others got names in English like Dinosaur Tank, Sea Killersaurus, or King Joe, which must have sounded exotically threatening to the Japanese audience but made the American one snigger. In spite of this, most ill-named kaiju overcame the handicap to give the Ultra hero a run for his money in the martial arts showdown.
The names below were inspired by the kaiju of the Ultraman Leo series.
