This is the first of the kaiju pieces that I am doing for all the people that participated in my Ultraman Tyrant Contest.
wanted the Evil Alien, Zarab Seijin.
Zarab Alien is a dangerous being that hails from the deepest regions of space. He first appeared in the original Ultraman television series. In “A Brother from Another Planet”
, Zarab tried to take over the planet Earth by first gaining it’s trust. He rescued a damaged Spaceship of the humans, as well as dispelled a toxic smoky mist that was blanketing the city. He claimed that he was an older brother to humanity. Someone that would watch over them. Unbeknownst to Earthlings, it was Zarab who damaged their spaceship in the first place. And it was also the alien that created the deadly smog as well. Hayata saw through the creatures scheme though. But before he could act, the alien carried out the final piece of his plan. By taking on the form of Ultraman, he attacked the city. Zarab sought to turn the world against it’s red and silver savior. But the real Ultraman soon showed up and battled his fake brother. In the end, Ultraman destroyed the cunning alien Zarab with a shot from his Specium beam.
Zarab would not show up again until the Ultraman Mebius and Ultraman Brothers film. In this film, the alien formed a fellowship with other aliens in order to conquer the planet Earth. Together with Temperor, Guts, and Nackle, they sought to raise the imprisoned Yapool and U-Killersaurus that was trapped in Kobe Bay. The aliens were defeated but not before they succeeded in raising the giant demon from the ocean. But Mebius and his brothers were able to defeat the monster.
Zarab’s only other important appearances was in Mega Monster Battle: Ultra Galaxy Legend the Movie. In here, Zarab disguises himself as a fake Ultra in order to gain access to Ultraman Belial’s prison. He had in tow, the Giga Battle Nizer, (a weapon that he found in the Ultraman Mebius Ghost Rebirth special). The weapon is a giant black staff that can hold the souls of vanquished monsters. The alien defeats the guards and frees the vile Belial. In gratitude, the evil Ultra uses the Battle Nizer and blasts Zarab into dust with it’s incredible power.
Zarab has had a few other appearances but really they were pointless and can be glanced over. What I laid out is really the most important tales of his existence. The alien in his original series could shoot missiles out of his fingertips, fly, and transform into a fake Ultra. In the newer versions he can still fly, but has the ability to shoot purple energy out of his hands. As well as turn into a fake Ultra. His energy bolts look cool and all but it is nothing in strength when you compare it to a typical Ultra’s Specium beam. All in all Zarab is a very cool seijin that I am glad got a chance to come back. With his ability to be like a chameleon, it does lend a lot of potential to stories with him. He is an average fighter mainly cause he tries to rely on tricks to win his battle. I based this piece off of the new suit of him, and also gave him his energy attack in order to show how much of a badass he is
