Summary: When the Ultraman franchise undergoes a big anniversary, you can bet an equally big movie is about to happen. And for this outing, it was only fitting that the movie would feature, up to then, a truly fantastic threat that dredged up one of the most dreaded Ultraman kaiju from the original series. The legendary space dinosaur itself, Zetton...

History: Alien Bat was a tyrannical conqueror that had been travelling in his ship across universes, plucking kaiju away from said universes and even the Monster Graveyard. He even stole entire civilizations. To him, all things end in death, and he wishes to spread despair everywhere to quell the might of the Ultramen. Recently, he's targeted a small city in an alternate Earth, where both the few humans he hasn't captured yet and three Ultras are currently. While he does bring some old kaiju into the mix, his trump card is the birth of an all-new form for the monstrous Zetton. Namely, Hyper Zetton! And it can kill Ultramen dead!

Notable Kills: Took out Ultraman Dyna, Cosmos, and Zero. Had it not been for the Deus ex machina, they would have been dead permanently.

Final Fate: Bat merges with the newly-hatched Zetton to become the true Hyper Zetton, but after defeating the Ultramen, they do their own fusion, turning into Ultraman Saga! After a lengthy fight that even includes some human intervention, Saga punches Hyper Zetton so hard he hits the evil alien overlord within, obliterating both aliens at once! The day is saved!

Powers/Abilities: Bat can merge himself and his ship with Zetton to turn it into its Hyper mode. Gigant Hyper Zetton can fire Dark Fireballs, as well as grow large raptorial limbs. When fully formed, Hyper Zetton can not only fire Dark Fireballs, but summon wings, make even bigger fireballs, teleport, use the Double Strike clone technique, summon a energy barrier shield to deflect blows, and absorb attacks before reflecting them at opponents.

Weakness: Beings of equal or greater power. Also, it loses a lot of speed and durability once its wings are ripped off.

Scariness Factor: 4-The one thing holding it all back is that Gigant Hyper Zetton is made from some very unconvincing CGI. Everything else though makes damn sure that you know how dangerous the Zetton lineage truly is. Alien Bat is your typical Sentai villain, but he knows how to crush hope wherever he sees it. As for his creation, Hyper Zetton might be the most dangerous version yet. Few other kaiju have come so close to killing multiple Ultramen, but here we are.

Trivia: -In the Director's Cut, Bat uses Spires to summon other kaiju from before, such as Tyrant, Black King, and Antlar, among others.

-In the original series, Zetton appeared in the finale, and was the first to kill Ultraman (for a time). Since then, the Zetton species has taken many forms, with this one being the most recognized. Although Zetton is often referred to as a "Space Dinosaur", this is just a result of how a different and more reptilian kaiju was meant to be the final opponent of the original series.
