UltramanAnother alien that planned to take over Earth, Zarab claimed to be the friend of humanity. The science patrol thought he was peaceful because, he wiped out a poison mist that was killing people in Japan. Zarab knew that this was his chance to strike, since, he had the element of surprise. Before he could do anything, he captured Hayata, who was spying on him. He commanded Hayata to hand over the beta capsule. Hayata refused to give into his orders. Later on, Ultraman appeared over the city and started destroying it! The next day, there was a council meeting,with Zarab present. He insisted that the science patrol should attack Ultraman if he returns! Zarab was secretly trying to frame Ultraman but, nobody else realized that. Except for Hoshino. He said that Ultraman would not do that. But, the science patrol had to attack Ultraman. Later that night, Ultraman began his rampage. Hoshino found Hayata in a building. Hayata was freed. Then he became Ultraman! The science patrol realized the first one was an impostor. As the fake ultra tried to escape, Ultraman shot the Specium Ray at him. It was really Zarab all along! After Ultraman fought Zarab in a long fight, Ultraman killed the evil alien, thus, ending his invasion. But, that was not the end. A few months later, Zarab was resurrected along with Kemular and Baltan as Zarab II. Mephilas did not want to use violence so he made the images disappear. They were only a presentation of his power.

- Alien Zarab's name is actually the word "Brother" pronounced backwards, as Zarab claims himself to be an elderly brother to the humanity.
- The Alien Zarab holograph created by Mephilas constantly sucked in breath through it's mouth hole, the only incarnation of Zarab known to do this.
- The voice in the english translation for Zarab is a lot stronger and deeper.
Ultraman Mebius & The Ultra BrothersIn the film Ultraman Mebius & Ultraman Brothers, Alien Zarab has formed an alliance with fellow aliens: Alien Temperor, Alien Guts, and Alien Nackle in order to kill Ultraman Mebius and release U-Killersaurus and Yapool from the seaside of Kobe. After Temperor was destroyed by Mebius, Zarab was sent to take care of "Phase 2" of the plan. After kidnapping Aya Jinguji (Mirai/Ultraman Mebius's human disguise's close friend) as well as both poisoning and paralyzing Mirai, Zarab transformed into "Imitation Mebius" and attacked the city of Kobe. Luckily, Mirai transforms into Ultraman Mebius again and after a long battle, manages to destroy Alien Zarab using Mebius shot . However, Zarab managed to complete phase 2 before dying and left Mebius weak enough for Guts and Nackle to attack Mebius.
- This incarnation of Alien Zarab is a lot more muscular than his old form.
Ultra Galaxy Mega Monster Battle: Never Ending Odyssey
This Alien reappeared in the series Ultra Galaxy Mega Monster Battle: Never Ending Odyssey. In this series, Alien Zarab is portrayed as a moronic, and comedic character who steals useless Battle Nizers for unexplained reasons. He does however manage to kidnap Haruna (the female member of the ZAP SPACY crew) and disguises himself as her to masquerade as her to the rest of the ZAP SPACY crew members, but fails miserably and comically when he cannot cope with the simple life of humanity, mistaking insignificant terms for danger. However the real Haruna returns and Zarab is exposed as the fake. However before the ZAP SPACY can take action, Alien Zarab transforms into Imitation Ultraman and becomes more of a threat to the ZAP SPACY crew. However, after a short and comedic battle against Rei's Gomora and a vengeful Haruna, Alien Zarab's true form is revealed. Hurting and humiliated, Alien Zarab flees from Planet Hammer never to bother anyone ever again.
- The anatomy page that Zarab stumbles upon lists several organs as 'Medusa,' 'Misery,' 'The Cat with Nine Lives,' and 'Greedy Neighbors.' It is unknown whether this is a case of random english insertion to make the page look impressive, or whether the organs unique to Zarab were literally named that.
