Gan Q (ガンQ Gan Kyu?) or alternately spelled Gun Q on some merchandise is a kaiju from another dimension. It appears as bipedal giant eye, with several smaller eyes all over its body. Being a creature from another dimension, Gan Q found everything in the human dimension to be funny. Never ending laughter can be heard from it, thus it can be considered as "insane" by human standards. It first appeared in Ultraman Gaia Episode 6.
Subtitle: Odd Beast (奇獣 Ki-jū?)
Code №00 Edit
While Team Lightning and Team Falcon were going through an aerial training exercise somewhere in the country they encountered Gan Q code №00 in the ground who suddenly started laughing at them. While analyzing it at X.I.G HQ, Gamu Takayama discovered that the Gan Q wasn't giving off any vital signs. While trying to understand what exactly Gan Q was, he began to be tormented by Gan Q's powers even though he was many miles away. Gamu impulsively told Team Lightning and Team Falcon to fire upon the giant eye. But Gan Q simply absorbed the two missiles and then fired one back at Tatsuhiko Yoneda, Team Falcon's leader. The mysterious eye then went underground and fled shortly after, but Gamu still had visions tormenting him.
Gamu took a visit to Alchemy Stars member Makoto, to do more research on all Gan Q's strange abilities. He then has XIG track Gan Q down to an oil refinery, eighty kilometers away from his first location. Gan Q resurfaced and revealed his new body that he created from the components from the one missile he kept, as well as rocks from the earth. Gan Q began to wreck wanton havoc just as soon as he emerged. When XIG arrived and began their assault, Gan Q tried to absorb Peace Carry into his biggest eye. As the kaiju continued his insane laughter Gamu morphed into Ultraman Gaia, rammed Gan Q down, and prevented Peace Carry from becoming Gan Q's victim. Gaia started to have the upper hand with the insane laughing monster until Gan Q started using his energy attacks and knocked him down. Gan Q wasted no time in absorbing Gaia into his body. Inside Gan Q's strange body, Gaia was tortured by Gan Q's laughter until he flew out of his body, blowing the laughing monster to pieces.
- Gan Q's name is a pun on the Japanese word for eye (眼球 gankyū?).
- Gan Q got his name from a press article after his first attack on Team Falcon and Team Lighting.
- On the outside of Gan Q's body there is only 17 eyes visible.
- Gan Q is possibly based off of Argus Panoptes, the Greek mythological giant with a thousand eyes, as Gan Q has many eyes inside and out of its body.
- Gan Q's design motif is based on Mokumokuren, a multi-eyed Youkai and MSM-04N Agguguy from Mobile Suit ZZ Gundam. He also bears an uncanny resemblance to Giant Robo kaiju Ganmons (Opticon in the Johnny Sokko dub)
Another Gan Q appeared in episode 53 (final batlle) "its name gaia" as a reaper and reincarnation of the evil sorcerer named humato kijuto. Gan Q appeared as a battered up Code №01 and Code №02.
In the Sengoku period the sorcerer named Kijuro Mato used his magic to predict the coming of the Root of Destruction, Mato to transform himself into a Gan Q in order to dominated the Root of Destruction when it arrived. But Mato died before the Root of Destruction ever came.
Then in the year of 2001 Kijuro Mato's ghost reincarnated himself in the damaged body of Gan Q. Gan Q appeared in in the middle of a city, and began searching for the home of a young boy named Shusaku Sawamura, Mato's descendant. When XIG's Team Lightning arrived and attacked Gan Q, he disappeared. At the same time, Mato's descendant, who had received Mato magic powers after the arrival of the kaiju C.O.V, was being harassed by Mato's soul.
Gan Q returned the next night and he did some damage, only to disappear during the first XIG attack. Once XIG learned that Gan Q was part of a prophecy about Kijuro Mato; Gamu Takayama, was sent to protect Satoshi, to prevent the one-eyed monster's full return. That night Mato decided to take one of Satshi's friends hostage, and when Gamu takayama and Satoshi arrived on the scene, Mato began to torture her to force Satoshi to cooperate. Satoshi fired his psychic energy only for Mato to return fire and use his power to restore Gan Q into Code №06.
Gamu turned into Ultraman Gaia and began to assault Gan with several hits and an Energy Surge punch. Satoshi's friend was released from Mato's power with telekinesis and left both her and Satoshi unconscious. Gan Q fired energy balls only for them to be avoided and blocked by the Energy Shield, as well as Gaia outsmarting him. When Gaia thought he was finally down, Gan Q came back up and started his assault anew on the hero. Upon using the eye holograms, Gan Q had the tr hand on Gaia. Satoshi woke up and used his powers to destroy the eye holograms and helped Gaia vanquish Mato and Gan Q. Satoshi then absorbed the power stolen from him and Gan Q reverted to his disfigured state. After Gaia turned into Supreme Version, Gan Q was destroyed by the Photon Stream.
- The Gan Q Code №02 costume was newly built.
- Gan Q Code №2 red stripes are recycled from Fire Golza's costume.
- Gan Q Code №2's laughter is a mixture of his and Kijuro's laughter, which was then greatly lowered in pitch, so that it sounded more like grunting than laughter.
Ultra Galaxy Mega Monster BattleEdit
Gan Q appears in episodes 5 and 6 of Ultra Galaxy Mega Monster Battle.
The 2nd monster controlled by Kate and unleashed upon Gomora when her Fire Golza fell, Gan Q opened up with a series of shots from his eye cannon. Gomora quickly dodged, leaping to the side. The blasts continued flying until smashing into the rising Fire Golza. His ally fell, his entire body being engulfed in an explosion. The loss of her monster didn't affect Kate who called her monster back just as the rest of ZAP SPACY arrived. While her fiery Golza was gone for good, her Gan Q would come in handy again.
After fooling ZAP SPACY into believing Rei had attacked and demolished much of the human population of Bolis, Kate attacked the team and left the Pendragon damaged. She then followed Rei, locating him after he defeated the monster Twin Tail. Gan Q attacked Litra and she demanded a battle between Gan Q and Gomora, but Rei declined.
She had another way of forcing him into battle: use a hostage! She made Oki appear before Gan Q, restrained by chains. When she demanded that Gan Q kill the human, Rei gave in and released Gomora! The two titans battled, but it took more than the combined might of Gomora and Litra to tackle such a juggernaut.
As the battle raged, the Pendragon flew in, newly repaired and armed. Flying by Litra’s side, the ship unleashed its Hyper Omega Cannon Gan Q. The beam exploded on the strange beast, sending it crashing to the ground in a fit before its entire body was destroyed in a titanic blast.
- Gan Q's suit in this series was newly built.
- This can be seen as his body is appears more like bare human muscle, and not as many veins are visible in his main eye.
- During the opening credits to the series, Gan-Q is seen battling Gudon, even though neither kaiju fought nor met each other in the series.
Mega Monster Battle: Ultra Galaxy LegendsEdit
Gan Q returns in the film Mega Monster Battle: Ultra Galaxy Legends as one of Ultraman Belial's 100 Monster Army. He was killed by Ultraseven's Eye Slugger during the final battle. He is also one of the monsters that make up Beryudora's body.

Ultra Zero FightEdit
Gan Q reappeared in episodes 1, 2, 5, and 6 of the mini-series, Ultra Zero Fight, as "The Gan Q", as a part of "The Four Beast Warriors of Hell".
In this short series, Gan Q was one of the many monsters revived by Alien Bat (along with Red King, Galberos, and Bemstar,) to battle against Ultraman Zero. Shortly after Ultraman Zero killed Galberos with his Zero Sluggers, Gan Q teamed up with Bemstar to battle Zero by using their absorption and redirection abilities to fend him off. While it was mildly successful at first, Ultraman Zero managed to transform into his Luna Miracle form and managed to destroy both Gan Q and Bemstar at the same time by destroying them from inside out their absorption regions.
- The Gan Q Suit from Ultra Galaxy Mega Monster Battle was reused for Gan Q's appearance in the mini-series.
Gan-Q reappeared in this special as a monster UltraLived by Kenta Watarai. He along with Alien Akumania, who is UltraLived by Chigusa Kuno, to attack Mochiron, who was UltraLived by Misuzu Isurugi. They taunted him without stop until Gomora, who was UltraLived by Hikaru Raido, came and slammed the two big-eyed monsters against each other.
Gan Q reappeared in this series, MonsLived by Alien Guts Vorst.
Near the final, Vorst was sent to MonsLived into Gan Q and split into two to stole Shepherdon's energies. The UPG team witnessed this and began an operation to save the monster by using a magnetic wave. Shou arrived at the scene and fired one of the two Gan Q to save Shepherdon. He fired a Gudon-charged bullet from his Victory Lancer but a Gan Q absorbed it (at the same time revealed that this Gan Q was controlled by Alien Guts Vorst) and return fire at Shou, knocking him. Shepherdon regained his strength and pushed Gan Q, knocking him down and stomped the monster rapidly but Vorst quickly turn the tables by swapping Gan Q with Fire Golza and the Vorst clone/Gan Q clone continued to absorb Shepherdon. The Live Base staffs completed their objective, managing the UPG Captain to fire a magnetic wave blast via the Base's parabolic antenna. Gan Q was knocked down from the blast but it took Fire Golza's attention as he began to attack the base.
Shou quickly recover and transform into Ultraman Victory to save them and Hikaru into Ginga to save his leader. Victory and Ginga found themselves occupied while trying to save Shepherdon until Victory used King Joe Custom's Pedanium Launcher and fired all of Gan Q's clones. The real Gan Q was destroyed by UPG Captain Yoshiaki Jinno whom used the Magnetic Wave laser that attached to the base's parabolic antenna and Victory's Victorium Shoot. Ginga morphed into Strium Mode and finished Fire Golza with Zoffy's M87 Ray. Despite all three monster and alien reverted to Spark Doll, but they were retrieved by Alien Chibu Exceller via teleportation. Nonetheless, Bolst's deed was done and Gan Q's Spark Doll was used among of those needed for Exceller to become Five King.
In episode 11, Yoshida became a victim of Alien Akumania Muerte in human disguise, he caught the boy but Gan-Q tried to fight back, as he was under control by Alien Akumania and turn to giant Gan-Q. Even after Gan-Q was control by Alien Akumania, Yoshida still in his consciousness and try to gain Ginga's help but failed. Later, Ultraman Victory appeared after pucnhing Alien Akumania with his EX Red King Knuckle, both of Ginga and Victory was beaten by Gan-Q until the boy talks to Yoshida about their days together. Alien Akumania fire his eye ray but was absorb by Gan-Q and fire back to Akumania. Ginga change to Ginga Strium and fire Zoffy's M87 ray while Victory summon his Shepardon saber, making a V Slash and destroy Alien Akumania. The boy cry after Gan-Q saying goodbye to him and appologise. Ginga once again use his Ginga Comfort to transform back Yoshida back to his self. In the last scene, Yoshida see the boy hanging the Gan-Q Spark Doll in front of the basket of his bike now that he know how to ride it causing Yoshida to be happy and smile in the end.
