Reimon (レイモン Reimon?), better known as Rei (レイ?) is a Reionics and is the main protagonist of the Ultra Galaxy TV series. At the beginning of the show he suffered from amnesia and became a honorary member of the ZAP SPACY crew of the Pendragon space-ship. At first he was hostile towards kaiju, and fought against them with his own Battle Nizer Kaiju: Gomora, Litra, Eleking, and later Miclas, but after his time with the crew of the Pedragon, Rei grew as a person and became more compassionate towards all kaiju. Rei was portrayed by Shota Minami.
Ultra Galaxy Mega Monster Battle
Rei first came to Planet Boris as a baby inside one part of the monster Bullton, who summoned the many monsters who plagued the planet. He was cared for by a little girl but he eventually disappeared. His present state was found by the crew of the Pendragon bursting out of the frozen body of a Peguila. Despite a rocky first impression and the crew's fear at his power to control monsters, Rei joined the ZAP SPACY crew. At first he was uncomfortable with his position and his team but later warmed up to them as the series progressed. He crosses paths with the mysterious Kate while having visions of a mysterious giant trapped in the side of a mountain, later revealed to be the red and silver giant hero Ultraman, who plays a part in Rei recovering his identity. As the series progresses, Rei, his monsters, and the ZAP SPACY battle various monsters from the transparent Neronga, the Brutal Red King, the Energy Devourer Bemstar, the two missile and moth choju Verokron and Doragory, to the giant robot King Joe Black.
At end of the series Kate contacts him during his dreams and tells him that he is a member of the Alien Reiblood and calls him out for one final battle. While this is happening it is made clear that Planet Boris' artificial sun is broken and will explode to collide with his planet and turned it into a burning crisp. Rei faces Kate and her Zetton with all three of his monsters Gomora, Litra and Eleking but they are eventually beat down until only Gomora is left and he did not fare any better alone. Rei also notices that he was feeling the pain of his monsters just like Kate, something that never happened before. It was at this time that their battle was interrupted by King Joe Black who left Gomora all but dead and proceeded to battle with Zetton. As King Joe Black and Zetton proved evenly matched and battled to a standstill, it was then that Rei taped into his unknown power and became Reimon, causing Gomora to become EX Gomora. EX Gomora proceeded to defeat both opponents, incapacitating King Joe Black and destroying Zetton.
With his newfound power Rei instinctively knew what to do and used his Reimium Revival Ray on Ultraman, freeing him and turning him back to normal. As the crew of the Pendragon celebrated his victory Kate showed up, beaten and seemingly dying she warned Rei of the Reiyonix battle, revealed his true name of Reimon and that he was her younger brother. With that she faded away and the crew rushed to their ship to escape Planet Boris' end. However as they attempted to flee they were attacked by King Joe but saved by Ultraman, leaving the atmosphere before it became like a sun. After the crew escaped the planet of kaiju, Rei and his three monsters Gomora, Litra, and Eleking went with the crew to the ZAP SPACY headquarters on their way to Earth, a planet which Rei has never been to or even seen.

Elsewhere the ZAP SPACY crew, after their battle against Alien Reiblood, have now landed on an Earth-like Planet known as "Dent." However their visit is quickly interrupted by the appearance of the monster Zaragas, who appears before them in a meteorite. After a short battle using their weapons, Rei sends his Gomora battle against the monster and after some assistance by the ZAP SPACY, Zaragas is destroyed. Immediately afterwards, the ZAP SPACY is shocked by the sudden appearance of Ultraman Mebius, who takes Rei and teleports away before the ZAP SPACY can respond.

Battle Nizer Monsters
Rei controls a great number of monsters thanks to his Battle Nizer, they are:
- Gomora (Primary monster), The Prince of Monters himself has been Rei's first monster and monster of choice in almost every monster fight Rei finds himself in. It is unknown how Rei first came across Gomora. Gomora is also believed and described as the leader of all of Rei's monsters.
- Litra, The Prehistoric Bird Monster has been one of Rei's monsters and one of Gomora's allies for almost as long as Gomora. She has been right by Gomora's side to defeat other monsters right up to the end and became a staple member of Rei’s arsenal, often using her as a means of flight transportation.
- Eleking (which is killed by Tyrant later), The Electrical Water King himself, was a monster who became one of Rei's monsters after he was defeated by Gomora. More than impressed with the creature and his combat skills and effectiveness, Rei pulled out his Battlenizer and captured Eleking, making it his third monster ally and the only one of his monsters able to fight underwater. However, Eleking's run on Rei's team came to an end when it faced Grande 's Tyrant in Ultra Galaxy NEO. Overpowered by its fearsome adversary, Eleking was brutally beaten without any chance for a counterattack and was quickly rendered motionless from the onslaught. Even in its severely weakened state, Eleking managed to shield the Pendragon from Tyrant's beam attack before being ultimately brought down by Tyrant's scythe to its neck. Collapsing to the ground, the valiant monster dissipated in a burst of light particles.
- Miclas (given to him by Ultraseven), Ultraseven's second capsule monster of choice, was given to Rei in gratitude for Rei aiding Ultraseven in defeating Armored Darkness and since then has been Rei's newest monster. But before the destruction of the Planet Hammer, Miclas was given back to Ultraseven after Rei bid farewell to the monster.

In this form, Reimon becomes extremely powerful but violent in battle, as does Gomora, and will fight both friend and foe alike. He also evolved into this form after being mind controlled by Belial. Later in the series, however, he learns to evolve Gomora into Reionic Burst mode without himself entering Burst mode himself.
