Gango (ギャンゴ Gyango?), also spelled Gyango, is an unnatural kaiju created by the wishing stone. It disappeared after the creator willed it out of existence, and Ultraman carried the wishing stone away.
Subtitle: Brain Wave Monster (脳波怪獣 Nōha Kaijū?)
- Height: 2.2 ~ 50 m
- Weight: 60 ~ 60,000 t
- Origin: Tokyo suburbs, alternate dimension (Orb Chapter 3)
Originally a small space rock capable of granting any wish, Gyango was created after a criminal got his hands on the space rock. Wanting the rock to do his dirty work, the thief wished for a kaiju to do his bidding, creating Gyango. After using Gyango to scare people for his enjoyment, the criminal wished for Gyango to grow to a gigantic size, and that it did! The kaiju smashed through the walls and ceiling, causing the structure to collapse and unintentionally injuring the man, sending him into a coma. With the criminal unable to tell the kaiju to stop, Gyango began a relentless assault!
It was met by the SDF and the Science Patrol, but all their weapons could do was sever one of its radar-like ears, which sent Gyango in an enraged frenzy. Finally Shin Hayata transformed into Ultraman, to stop the kaiju, but Gyango's cowardly nature took the "fight" long enough for Ultraman to weaken. As it saw that Ultraman was running out a time, the criminal awoke from his coma. Seeing what his creation was doing, he wished the creature away. The towering kaiju turned back into the softball-sized space rock and was gathered by Ultraman and taken back into space.
- Suit actor: Teruo Aragaki (新垣輝雄 Aragaki Teruo?).
- Gango's suit is a modified Bemular suit.
- Gango is ticklish.
- Gango's screeching (as well as Red King's, briefly) are re-used as dragon roars at the climax of the 1998 anime film, Crimson Wolf.
- Gango's name originates from the English word "Gang", which recaps the fact that Gango's rock was stolen by a gangster.
- Although not physically seen in the film, Gango is one of the kaiju that makes up Beryudora's Right Horn in Mega Monster Battle: Ultra Galaxy Legend The Movie. This does not make sense, as Gango never actually died; He was simply reverted back to the Wishing Stone.
- The Kaiju Encyclopedia on the Ultraman complete collection DVD says that Gango can summon any type of metal with his claws, but this never happens.
- On July 21, 2011, Gango and Ultraman Taro were featured in a PSA about helping others in need to support the flood victims of March 2011. This PSA can be viewed here. Gango and Taro fight, but Taro realises that this is because Gango has a branch stuck in his foot like a thorn. Eventually, Gango falls down, giving Taro a chance to remove the branch and heal Gango's injured foot, calming the Kaiju. Gango, thankful for Taro's intervention, thanks Taro as Mother of Ultra and Father of Ultra watch.
- Gango's ghost is seen in the monster graveyard in episode 35.
- Gango's roar is a Gamera roar, reversed and sped up, also slightly modified.
It is likely that he returned to space in his original form after Ultraman Ginga defeated Dark Lugiel.
Ultraman Orb Chapter 3 "The Man Who Steals the Black Hole" arc
Gango was an alternate dimension monster which Biranki manipulated to destroy an alien city, resulting in her imprisonment in Planet 484 in the first place.
After Juggler freed her, Biranki summoned Gango again to destroy a tower on Planet 484 and assisted the two in escaping.
- In an interesting sense, Gango was summoned by Biranki, who is also a criminal like the summoner from the original series.
Powers and Abilities
- Metal Summon: Gango can summon any type of metal using his claws. This power was not used in the show.
