- Dail (ダイル Dairu?): A member of the Reionyx Hunter (レイオニクスハンター Reionikusu Hantā?) formed by the Alien Pedan (ペダン星人 Pedan Seijin?) attacking users of Battle Nizers.
- Harlan (ハーラン Hāran?): The supreme commander of the Planet Hammer Detachment (惑星ハマー派遣部隊 Wakusei Hamā Haken Butai?) of the Reionyx Hunter.
- Grande (グランデ Gurande?): A Reionyx of the Alien Keel (キール星人 Kīru Seijin?) with the Neo Battle Nizer, which makes him one of the strongest Reionyx on Planet Hammer at the time of Rei's arrival. He has a very odd and funny personality, which hides the fact that he is one of the most dangerous and powerful Reionyx, and he would have killed Rei in their first battle had not Eleking cut the link between them. He also becomes deeply infatuated with Rei's sister, Kate (ケイト Keito?), when she appears to him. He joins Rei in battling the Alien Reiblood in the final episode, and insists that someday Rei will have to introduce his sister to him. So far, he has only summoned Tyrant (タイラント Tairanto?) and Red King (レッドキング Reddo Kingu?), and he is capable of evolving Red King to EX Mode.
- Main article: Reimon
When Reimon feels extreme anger or rage, he transforms into Burst Mode (バーストモード Bāsuto Mōdo?), a black/red form, and he has the ability to evolve Gomora into a Reionic Burst (レイオニックバースト Reionikku Bāsuto?) mode as well. In this form, Reimon becomes extremely powerful and violent in battle, as does Gomora, and will fight both friend and foe alike. Later in the series, however, he learns to evolve Gomora into Reionic Burst mode without him entering Burst mode himself.
Ultra Seven fought Armored Darkness, went into Armored Darkness himself, and sealed Armored Darkness. He showed the vision fighting Armored Darkness through his Eye Slugger to Rei after that. After Rei destroyed Armored Darkness, he gave Rei his Miclas until the end of the battle in the Planet Hammer.
