History

Ultraman 

Generation I

Zarab

Alien Zarab in Ultraman

Another 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.

Trivia
  • Alien Zarab was created from a heavily modified Ragon suit.
  • Alien Zarab's name is actually the word "Brother" pronounced backwards, as Zarab claims himself to be an elderly brother to the humanity.
  • The voice in the english translation for Zarab is a lot stronger and deeper.
  • The mobile suit MSM-07 Z'Gok from Mobile Suit Gundam and Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn highly resembles Alien Zarab.

Generation II

33 - alien zarab

Zarab II

A few months later, Alien Zarab was "resurrected" along with Kemur Man Ⅱ and Baltan Ⅲ as Alien Zarab Ⅱ (ザラブ星人二代目 Zarabu Seijin Nidaime?) by Alien Mefilas. Mefilas did not want to use violence so he made the aliens disappear. They were only a presentation of his power. 

Trivia
  • Zarab II is rather pale compared to the somewhat colorful original Zarab. His head is completely silver and his body is darker.
  • This Zarab (like the other two aliens) was not resurrected. It was a second one created by Mefilas' ship in order to trick the people of earth that it was the original revivied.
  • The Alien Zarab created by Mephilas constantly sucked in breath through it's mouth hole, the only incarnation of Zarab known to do this.
  • This Zarab is mistakenly refered to as Therrob (II)
  • However, Therrob is actually an anagram for the word Brother which makes sense as the original Zarab claimed himself to be the elderly brother to humanity, also the name Zarab is said to be the word "Brother" pronounced backwards.

Ultraman Mebius & The Ultra Brothers

ZarabandMebiuseam

In 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 paralysing Mirai, Zarab transformed into Imitation Ultraman Mebius (にせウルトラマンメビウス Nise Urutoraman Mebiusu?) 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.

Trivia

  • This incarnation of Alien Zarab is a lot more muscular than his old form.

Ultra Galaxy Mega Monster Battle: Never Ending Odyssey

NEO Zarab

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.

Trivia

  • 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.

Trivia

Alien Zarab was popular among fans because he was the first alien to have a form which imitated that of the series' respective Ultra. Yet, he was the first to have disguised himself as multiple Ultras. The original Ultraman is slightly taller than Imitation Ultraman though statistics shown they were similar in sizes. However, several comparisons can be identified to differ the imitation from the real one. Among them are:

Original Ultraman

  • His eyes are a bright white, his chest had red markings, his ears are rectangle-shaped and his feet are just like white boots.

Imitation Ultraman

  • Imitation Ultraman has larger, pointy eyes which are coloured yellow orange, his chest has black stripes, his ears are triangle-shaped and his feet are pointed at their tips.
