Pandon was released by the Ghoth Aliens as a last resort against the Ultra Garrison. Pandon immobilized the Ultra Garrison by using his flames to scorch the entire battlefield. Just as Pandon was about to drop a rock on the Ultra Garrison and crush them to death, Ultraseven arrived to fight him, even when knowing the battle could kill him due to that his time on Earth has ended. Ultraseven managed to save the Ultra Garrison, but Pandon was too much for him to handle as he was weakened sharply due to the depletion of his energy, unable to even generate an Emerium Ray. Luckily with the help of the Ultra Garrison who distracted Pandon, Ultraseven managed to use the Eye Slugger, cutting off Pandon's left arm and right leg, killing him.
Reconstructed PandonEditHowever knowing of Ultraseven's weakened state, the Ghoth Aliens resumed their assult on earth by reviving Pandon and replaced his severed arm and leg with metal, robotic appendages, thus turning Pandon into Reconstructed Pandon (改造パンドン, Kaizō Pandon?)
After his masters were killed by the Ultra Garrison, Reconstructed Pandon returned to fight a rejuvenated Ultraseven, where the battle was fought to a stand-still. As the battle went on Reconstructed Pandon catches Ultraseven's Eye Slugger and taunts him with it. However before he could throw it, Reconstructed Pandon was temporarily distracted by the Ultra Garrison allowing Ultraseven to charge up his Ultra willpower. Finally after throwing it, Ultraseven re-took control of the Eye Slugger and turned it back around, decapitating Reconstructed Pandon and finally ending the threat of the Alien Ghoth and Pandon.
- The name of "Pandon" was inspired by the term "Pandora's box," as demonstrated when Pandon emerges from the Ghose Aliens' ship.
- Pandon's earliest design before his current Showa design called for the monster to have two separate heads that lacked any texture in his necks. It was eventually changed into its current design due to technical difficulties with operating two separate heads at the same time from within the suit. The design would be incorporated into the design Pandon had used in the Heisei series and the 8 Brothers film.
- Ultraseven and Reconstructed Pandon's final battle features the classical music piece Concerto in A minor Op. 54 (first movement) by Robert Schumann. This choice was made both to make the climax more emotional and due to a short schedule and not enough time to make a music piece for the battle.
- While not appearing in the series, Pandon's fire power would be used (along with Zetton's and Black End's fire power) to modify Windam into "Fire Windam" in Ultraman Mebius.
- Pandon and Alien Ghose were the last two -ultraman kaiju- made by Eiji Tsubaraya.
- Although not physically seen in the film (save for his King Pandon incarnation,) Pandon is one of the monsters that makes up Beryudora's 2nd Support group in Mega Monster Battle: Ultra Galaxy Legend The Movie.
- in the TNT english dub pandon's name was changed to the "winser fire breather".

Heisei Ultraseven EvoloutionEditPandon reappeared in Ultraseven EVOLUTION 5 trilogy as Neo Pandon (ネオパンドン, Neo Pandon?)
In this series, The Ghose Aliens return and enhance the body of the original Pandon that was killed and transform it into Neo Pandon. Neo Pandon surfaces and destroys a nearby city, Ultraseven appears and the two battle to a standstill until Neo Pandon burrows away with the control of a man who uses the "Phantom Controller."
Neo Pandon later returns being called by the man wielding the Phantom Controller, but Ultraseven returns as well and the two resume battling. With the Phantom Controller, Neo Pandon easily beats down Ultraseven until the Space Garrison get involved and destroys it, severely weakening Neo Pandon. With an opportunity, Ultraseven destroys Neo Pandon with a slicing attack.
- Neo Pandon was designed after the original Pandon design, hence why he looks different from the original Pandon.
- Neo pandon possesses a modified Melba roar.
- Although not physically seen in the film (save for his King Pandon incarnation,) Neo Pandon is one of the monsters that makes up Beryudora's Body group in Mega Monster Battle: Ultra Galaxy Legend The Movie.
Great Decisive Battle! The Super 8 Ultra Brothers EditPandon reappeared in Great Decisive Battle! The Super 8 Ultra Brothers as King Pandon (キングパンドン, Kingu Pandon?).
Appearing from a Tornado that appeared out of nowhere, King Pandon was the second King Monster to appear after King Gesura was destroyed. King Pandon quickly began destroying a water front, but the beast would soon face Ultraman Mebius, who was brought to the real world for unknown reasons. The two seemed evenly matched, until King Pandon gained the upper hand using a barrage of beams. Thankfully, Mebius managed to recover and challenged the monster again. Finally, Mebius unleashed the Medium Shot, blowing King Pandon to bits.
- In this film, King Pandon possesses the ability to fire energy rays that are blue and purple from his mouths, as well as the ability to travel via a Tornado.
