Subtitle: Giant ape-man (巨大猿人 Kyodai Enjin?)
The male Gigantes was a very strong ape-like monster wishing to get the attention of a female, Gigantes blasted Asuka’s plane out of the sky when passing overhead. After the Asuka was discovered by the female, and the ape seemed to be attracted to him more than the male Gigantes, the monster went on a rampage! It left the forest to kill humanity and regain the love of its life. When the two met up, he was denied his love. This drove the male even more and continued its attack. Knowing what the monster wanted, Asuka transformed into Ultraman Dyna and challenged it. Normal strength wasn't enough to contend with such a brute and Dyna turned into his strong mode.
Even then, however, Dyna had trouble keeping up. He had never faced such a brutal monster before, but when he saw the female was watching, he knew the victor would take her. Knowing that this rampage was caused by the female falling for Asuka, Dyna allowed himself to be thrown around and seemingly beaten. The female, impressed by the battle, took the male as her mate. The pair retreated back to the forest, never to be seen again.
