Subtitle: Gluttonous Alien (健啖宇宙人 Kentan Uchūjin?)
The Alien Fanton was one of the few aliens in the universe to maintain a peaceful relationship with Earth. When one of the Fantons contacted GUYS to alert him of his arrival, GUYS arranged to meet him in a forest. When they did arrive, he told GUYS of something called "C-Pin 929;" an item he was looking for. After the introductions, GUYS brought him back to their HQ for a feast. The Fanton then proceeded to eat everything on the table, and then fell asleep shortly after finishing. After finding Alien Fanton's C-Pin 929 and returning it, Alien Fanton bid farewell to GUYS and repayed them with clues about Tsurugi's identity, as well as a gift worth a great fortune for their kindness.
Fanton would return many months later (in episodes 49 and 50) when he, Zamsher, Alien Psychokino, and Ultraman Hikari came to help GUYS fight Alien Emperor. Fanton himself however did not participate in the fight physically. After Alien Emperor was soon destroyed, Fanton and Psychokino left quietly and happily.

- Their race's name, Fanton comes from the Chinese word "Fan Tong" (饭桶, Rice Bucket), which is commonly a slang used as an insult, mainly used to call people that only think of food.
- The Alien Fanton are based off of the Ultra Q kaiju Kanegon and a snail.
- In certain stageshows, another Alien Fanton suit was made, which called Fonta (フォンタ Fonta?), the son of the original Alien Fanton in Ultraman Mebius. Its appears to be a little miniaturized version of Fantonians, true to being that of a child or adolescence. Fonta had a friend named Djidji, a Dada and the two were accidentally involved in a scheme enacted by the Four Heavenly Kings whom tried to attack the Ultras as a revenge from their defeat. This suit was modified once into the Fanegon People in Ultra Zero Fight and later used again in Ultraman Festival 2015 as a young Alien Fanton scientist that worked for Xio in an outer space branch.
Ultraman Hikari Saga
While Ultraman Hikari searched the galaxy for the being known as Tsurugi, he met up with two Alien Fanton, who directed him in the direction of a desert-like planet, in which Tsurugi himself did not exist, but something better; The Ultraman King!

An Alien Fanton appeared in this new series by the name of Dr. Guruman (グルマン博士 Guruman Hakase?). He is a member of Xio's Research and Development lab team and the team's benefactor in designing combat vehicles. He takes refuge at the base's lab, where he is given a Japanese-style room next to Daichi Ozora's cubicle and sometimes can be seen sleeping after eating his meals.
Also, a cybernetic version of Alien Fanton, Cyber Fanton (サイバーファントン Saibā Fanton?) was created by incorporating the specs of an Alien Fanton to a Cyber Card. It appeared In the final episode of Ultraman X. After Ultraman X spoke out to Gomora and striked Greeza right in the center of his chest, Fanton's Cyber Card, along with all of the other Cyber Cards, traveled to X and united with him. Cyber Fanton's power was used to help form the Hybrid armor and power up the Ultimate Xanadium to defeat Greeza once and for all. Fanton, along with the numerous other Cyber Cards and Spark Dolls, then appeared and thanked Daichi as he thanked them.
