Tetsuon was originally a kid named Tetsuo who was a poor baseball player struggling to play the game and get along with his fellow members. After one of opposing baseball players accidentally knocked down a small UFO, the kids fought for ownership of the small disc when it deteriorated and revealed a small egg-like object that the kids fought for that two when Tetsuo accidentally caught the thing in his mouth and ate it. He suddenly felt tired when he left and decided to take a nap. When he woke up, he didn't realize that he turned into the monster, Tetsuon until his friend Taku showed him his reflection in a puddle and Tetsuon used his powers to bring back a lost ball.
To keep his monster friend safe, Taku and the other kids convinced UGM by telling them that the earlier UFO sighting was a hoax and then, they convinced him to enter a costume contest and he won, with the prize being a camera set. The kids then decided to use that camera set to film Tetsuon fighting a kid named Nii in an Ultraman 80 costume with a city background and everything even though Tetsuon refuses to be the bad guy. The next day, the kids realized that Tetsuon was a pro when it came to school work so they convinced him to do others' school work in exchange for cake, but then UGM appeared and agreed to take Tetsuon for a regular check-up in exchange for letting him eat his cakes soon afterwards.
The team then realized that the thing Tetsuon ate wasn't an egg at all, but a seed from a Space Plant. The thing is Tetsuo wanted to stay Tetsuon because he had these amazing powers much to the chagrin of his parents. However, negative consequences soon befell him when he was disqualified from the contest, taking back the prize, his studying meant nothing, and that his baseball skills have improved so much that the kids no longer wanted him on the team, leaving Tetsuon with no friends or family to hang out with. Feeling rejected, Tetsuon decided he wanted to return to normal, and Takeshi Yamato turned into Ultraman 80 and shrank into micro size to fight the Space Plant in his stomach and he eventually defeated the monster and Tetsuon finally reverted back to his normal child form. From then on, with encouragement from Takeshi, Tetsuo put in more effort into his life and eventually, he life improved physically and socially.
