A Quartet of Creatures is the 3rd episode of Ultraman: The Ultimate Hero.


A documentary film crew working in South America has discovered a place where gigantic, prehistoric monsters freely roam the land as they did millions of years ago. When the crew's gear mysteriously disappears along with their only method of calling for aid, WINR comes to the rescue. Cornered in a mountain cavern by the ferocious female Red King and a ancient flightless bird called Chandora (who is named Chondra instead), the film crew find their equipment being guarded by another tiny, red creature named Pigmon. The creature's benign nature gives them the idea of taking back a live specimen to put on display rather than just film footage of monsters fighting each other. While Sanders and Young try to divert Red King's attention in one of the Hawk fighter craft, Kai ventures in on foot for a rescue. But when it becomes evident that WINR's weapons are having no effect on the monster, Kai transforms into Ultraman Powered. The humanoid giant has no problem holding off the female Red King until its larger, more ferocious and more powerful mate shows up! and the two monster briefly double-team Powered. After being dazed by WINR, The female Red King wanders off a cliff to her doom, which leaves her mate in sorrow and loss. Ultraman Powered allows the male Red King to live, feeling sympathy for the monster.
