The Return of UltramanEdit

Muruchi-Jack 0

Muruchi in Ultraman Jack

A biological weapon created by Alien Mates, Muruchi was a weapon created in case negotiations with Earth would become rough. Alien Mates kept him contained in his UFO, which he had buried underground due to the sheer amounts of pollution. However, Alien Mates was tragically shot and killed by a police officer in an angry mob (who were trying to kill Alien Mates too,) Muruchi arose from underground and caused havoc, believing that the planet was against Alien Mates due to his murder. Goh transformed into Ultraman Jack and both he and Muruchi fought in a local refinery plant until he destroyed Muruchi with a single use of the Specium Ray.


  • Muruchi is designed off of a Salmon.
  • Muruchi's name comes from the Japanese pork cuisine, Inamuruchi.
  • In earlier sketch designs Muruchi had and antenna on his head for Alien Mates' control over him.
  • Although Not physically seen, the Original Muruchi was one of the monsters that made up Beryudora's Left arm in Mega Monster Battle: Ultra Galaxy Legend The Movie.

Ultraman Ace Edit

Muruchi 2

Muruchi II, as seen in Ultraman Ace

Muruchi reappeared in Ultraman Ace, episodes 7 and 8 "Kaiju vs. Choju vs. Seijin" and "Life of The Sun, Life of Ace", as Muruchi Ⅱ (ムルチ二代目 Muruchi Nidaime?).

A second Muruchi appeared in the middle of a battle between Ultraman Ace, Doragory, and Alien Metron Jr., joining the fray and attacked Ace along with the Chouju and his Alien Master. However, Muruchi II's appearance was short-lived as during the fight, Muruchi II accidentally rammed into Doragory while trying to attack Ace. The Provoked Doragory angrily attacked Muruchi II, viciously killing the monster by tearing off his lower jaw and his left leg.


  • Muruchi II is very thin compared to the first generation, he is colored more silver, and the tip of the tail is shaped like a tail fin of a fish .
  • Muruchi II's sudden appearance in the series has caused some confusion as to how or why he appeared. Some believe that this Muruchi was in fact the original, having survived his fight with Ultraman Jack, and was disturbed by Ultraman Ace's battle.
    • However the Ultraman Encyclopedia states that Muruchi II is actually the son of the first, theorizing that the first Muruchi might had laid an egg sometime before he fought Jack.
  • Seagorath was originally intended to appear in Muruchi's place, but was changed for unclear reasons.
  • The Muruchi II costume is actually an altered first generation Muruchi costume. It was used in other works over the years and became too battered to be used any futher, which is why the developers decided to have Muruchi II ripped apart by Doragory in the screen play.

Ultraman Mebius Edit

Zoa Muruchi II


Muruchi reappeared in episode 32 of the series, UUltraman Mebius as Zoa-Muruchi (ゾアムルチ Zoa Muruchi?).

Zoa-Muruchi was created by the son of the original Alien Mates (from Return of Ultraman,) but this time as a means of vengeance against the humans for killing his father. While Zoa-Muruchi and Ultraman Mebius fought, Alien Mates met a woman, a principal of a kindergarden, who tells him that she knew the boy whom the elder Mates adopted. After learning of a tragic story about his efforts to find the original Mates's UFO, Mates realized he had not only made a grave mistake, but he also sealed the fate of an innocent, undeserving monster. Overcome with grief, but wanted to believe in human kindness again. He then called out to Mebius to end it. Mebius used the Mebium beam, and destroyed Zoa-Muruchi, after it let out one last anguish-filled cry, ending the suffering the Alien Mates have gone through.


  • The "Zoa" in Zoa-Muruchi's name means "Hate," hence Alien Mates's hatred against earth for his father's death.
  • Zoa-Muruchi looks very similar to the normal Muruchi, but they are more streamlined and have a cluster of blue spots on their belly.
  • This episode was later featured in episode 20 of New Ultraman Retsuden: Mebius and Alien Mates: The Monster Master's Legacy.

Ultra Galaxy Mega Monster BattleEdit

Zoa Muruchi galaxy

Zoa Muruchi, as seen in Ultra Galaxy

Muruchi reappeared in episode 9 of the series, Ultra Galaxy Mega Monster Battle again as Zoa-Muruchi.

Confronting the ZAP SPACY underwater (after King Joe Black shot the Pendragon down into the ocean) Zoa-Muruchi was attracted by a sonar frequency that the ZAP SPACY had created to scare away a group of Arigeras. Threatened by the imposing monster, Rei sent out Eleking to battle it, as Gomora was not as adept at fighting underwater. The battle went back and forth, but eventually, Eleking's electric attacks proved too strong, and Zoa-Muruchi was destroyed by his electric tail shock.


Mega Monster Battle: Ultra Galaxy Legend The Movie Edit

Zoa-Muruchi reappeared in the movie Mega Monster Battle: Ultra Galaxy Legend The Movie as one of Ultraman Belial's 100 Monster Army. He was first seen as a spirit in a shot of the Monster Graveyard along with Ho, King Pandon, Fire Golza, and Frogos. He then teamed up with Telesdon, Earthron, Alien Hipporito, and Alien Temperor to fight Gomora and was later killed in the final battle by Ultraman Mebius's Mebium Shoot.


New Ultraman RetsudenEdit

He makes a apperance in New Ultraman Retsuden Episode 8 as Muruchi II. His appearence is referenced by Alien Valky as he explains Doragory's time in Ultraman Ace.

Ultraman GingaEdit

Muruchi, as Zoa Muruchi, appears as a Spark Doll. He and several monsters cheer on Ultraman Ginga as he fights Dark Galberos. After Ultraman Ginga defeated Dark Lugiel, it is most likely that Zoa Muruchi returned to Alien Mate's planet.

Ultraman Ginga: Theater Special Ultra Monster Hero Battle Royale!Edit

Zoa Muruchi returned in the second movie special. He was the second monster to be UltraLived by the LivePad and the first one by Hikaru Raido. He went up against Doragory but he knocked him down immediately. After he got back up, he along with Zetton were defeated by one slash of Zamusha's katana.

Ultraman Ginga SEdit

Ginga s muruchi

Muruchi fights off Alien Metron and Ultraman Victory in Ultraman Ginga S.

Zoa Muruchi appeared in episode twelve of Ultraman Ginga S, where he was MonsLived by Alien Guts Bolst to attack Chigusa Kuno and Alien Metron. Metron grew to the monster's size but before he can strike, Muruchi fired his Energy Beam at him and he was struck down. Ultraman Victory and Ultraman Ginga appeared to assist him but they could only accomplish so much. They only distracted and held off but Muruchi only wanted to put the hurt on Metron Heist. When the alien started dancing with his lighters, thanks to Chigusa's singing, Muruchi became distracted by the alien's singing and dancing and, as a result, got blown up by a combination of Victory's Victorium Shoot and Ginga Strium's Ultra Shot.
