Basical (ベーシカル Bēshikaru) was an Alien Baltan and the main antagonist of Ultraman Cosmos: The First Contact. His antagonistic role was due to his striving desire for the remaining Alien Baltan's survival after their planet's destruction.
Ultraman Cosmos: The First Contact
Basical was the ruler of his dying world, the last adult of his species, with thousands of child Baltans looking to him for their protection and future. His only choice was to seek a new world for his kind, and he did, finding the Planet Earth. However, it was already populated by billions of humans, forcing Baltan to plan conquest over it. As he sped through space towards the blue planet, he was cut off by the heroic Ultraman Cosmos, while the alien's reasons for doing so were pure, his invasion of Earth could not be allowed. After a heated battle in space, which was sighted by young Musashi Haruno and detected by SRC, the two giants fell into the Earth.
Basical managed to survive his fall but realized it was likely his rival had also survived his impact as well (he was rescued by Musashi) and quickly planned to initiate his plan before the alien hero could recover and stop him from succeeding. Basical discovered the sleeping Don Dragon and possess it on a rampaging spree. After EYES and Sharks killed his host, Baltan emerged in person, growing to his full size and deliberate almost every Shark fighters effortlessly before retreating. Basical soon communicates with humanity and declared his invasion while chastises humanity's warfare.
The next day, alarmed by Shark's assault on Basical's homeworld, he quickly rose and deliberate every fighters until SRC played the national anthem alongside the citizens. Despite this successful peaceful method, Sharks took this opportunity to counter strike, which only worsen the condition until Musashi (with the help of Shirubyi) summons Ultraman Cosmos and both giants engaged in a fiery combat. In the middle of the battle, he engaged into a more brutish appearance, Neo Baltan (ネオバルタン Neo Barutan). Eventually, after Cosmos Corona Mode delivered the finishing blow, Basical halted their fight and tearfully died after knowing that his race had no other protector left. Cosmos turned his body back into his normal form, realizing even though Baltan had tried to conquer the Earth, his heart had been with his people the entire time. After watching the grueling battle, the Child Baltans came down and retrieved their king's body, taking it back to their homeworld so Basical could be laid to rest among the people he’d died trying to save.

- Basical is a misguided survivor, rather than a strictly evil alien - although his methods caused chaos and destruction, he was simply trying to ensure the endurance of his fellow Baltans, being the last adult of his kind.
- While Basical still has Crayfish and Cicada design elements like other Baltans, his large horns and strong armour are based on that of a stag beetle.
