Sabotendar (サボテンダー Sabotenda) was a choju created by Yapool in the TV series, Ultraman Ace. Sabotendar appeared in Episode 12.

Subtitle: Cactus Super Beast (さぼてん超獣 Saboten Choju)


Ultraman Ace

One of Yapool's choju, Sabotendar was unleashed in a city where it smashed everything in site, even with TAC and Japan's SDF on the assult. Ultraman Ace was quick to arrive on the scene and both Ultra and Choju battled. Ace's arm was briefly stabbed by the choju in the middle of battle, but backup for Ace came in the form of TAC, who teamed up with the Ultra to attack the choju. However, before it could be finished off, Sabotendar escaped by turning itself into a tiny cactus.

In its Cactus form, it was taken under refuge by an oblivious boy who used the cactus as a pet, feeding it bugs. Eventually, Sabotendar regained its health and resumed its attack on the city. Again, Ultraman Ace and TAC returned to engage Sabotendar in battle into a standstill. Despite revealing some new powers which included its tongue and its ball form, Ace fougth back and caught the cactus monster off guard, hurling it into the air while it was in its ball form and sliced it in half with the Ultra Guillotine, killing Sabotendar.


  • Sabotendar's costume would later be reused to create the choju Mazarius.
  • Sabotendar's roar is a heavily modifyed Gango roar.
  • Although not physically seen, Sabotendar is one of the monsters that makes up Beryudora's body in Mega Monster Battle: Ultra Galaxy Legend The Movie.
  • Sabaotendar's name is derived from Saboten (サボテン) meaning cactus in japanese.

Ultraman Taro

Sabotendar reappeared in episode 30 of the series Ultraman Taro as Reconstructed Sabotendar (改造サボテンダー Kaizō Sabotendā), also known as Sabotendar II.

After Reconstructed Bemstar was starting to lose to Ultraman Taro, Yapool summoned weaker versions of his choju, Sabotendar and Verokron to help it. However, they were no match for Taro's might and ZAT's assaults. In the end, Sabotendar II was destroyed by Ultraman Taro's Storium Ray.


  • Re-Sabotendar's roar is a reused Mukadendar roar.
  • Re-Sabotendar's costume is not the same as the one from Ultraman Ace, as the original was modified into Mazarius. His spikes are longer, his colors are brighter and he lacks some of the detail present on the original.
