Woo (ウー, Ū?) is a strange supernatural kaiju that terrorized Phantom Mountain, seemingly protecting an orphan girl. After several attempts were made at the girl's life, Woo began to rampage about the mountain and Ultraman intervened. Woo only stopped after the orphan girl succumbed to the cold after being chased by local huntsmen. Woo disappeared, and yet appeared again to fight the choju Iceron several years later.
Subtitle: Legend Monster (伝説怪獣, Densetsu Kaijū?)
Named such for its never-ending white coat of snow, Phantom Mountain was the home of a unique legend. It was said a furry creature, Woo, watched over the land and protected a mysterious young girl named Yuki after her mother and former guardian died. When the girl was threatened, the monster would appear, warding off any hunters that scared her. Sightings of the monster began to grow more numerous, thus the Science Patrol was called in. Soon the creature appeared near the ski resort! A lone hunter shot it repeatedly, but before the monster could retaliate, Yuki begged it to leave. The creature did as it was told and left as mysteriously as it had arrived, but now a full hunt was on for not just the beast, but also the girl that could control it! The Science Patrol managed to discover the furry monster just as a group of hunters gave chase after the girl. Pummeling the beast with rockets, the patrol couldn’t destroy Woo, and the beast forced their VTOL down.
Enraged at both its attack and the hunting of Yuki, Woo attacked the resort! Resting with a twisted ankle, Hayata saw the creature coming and summoned Ultraman. The hero challenged Woo and the two quickly engaged in combat, trading blows one after another. As the war raged, however, the injured Yuki finally collapsed in the snow. The chase had drained her and the cold was sending her into hypothermia. As Ultraman watched on, Woo began to vanish as the life faded away from Yuki. Once her heart stopped beating, the strange monster vanished.

Ultraman AceEditWoo reappears in episode 42 of Ultraman Ace, as Woo II (ウー（二代目) Ū (Nidaime)?).
With a new mountain-dwelling monster named Iceron on the loose, attacking TAC and threatening several locals, one such individual, a small boy, manages to summon a second Woo, who was the ghost of the boy's late father.
Woo battled with Iceron, but was quickly beaten and sent falling down a mountian. Unable to fight further, Ultraman Ace stepped in to save to finnish Iceron. Woo II later was shown to still be "alive" and disappeared into the mist upon Iceron's defeat.

Woo first appeared in episode 19 of the 1972 Redman tokusatsu series where he got chased after he distracted Redman from chasing Kanegon and then the two monsters teleported behind the hero and fought him. They proved to be a worthy challenge for him but then the two ended up getting killed by impalement from the Red Arrow simultaneously.

Woo's final appearance on the show was in episode 76, where he teamed up with Garamon to take on Redman at a beach. Despite having the odds stacked against him, the alien hero held his own against both monsters with his judo prowess even with his Red Knife thrown out of his grip by the monsters. Woo was eventually defeated when the hero chopped him so hard he fell to the ground, with Garamon following pursuit. He then threw his Red Arrow at the monsters that exploded soon afterwards.
- Since this series was so low budget, they used sneakers for Woo's feet.
Woo appears as a character in the OVA Ultraman Grafiti, how ever, the fur surrounding the monster has become long flowing hair. As such, her full body is shown, but wearing a bikini. She appears in the opening, walking by Ultraman, his two children and Gango, causing a small blizzard, acting as a YukiOnna of Japanese Mythology. Woo became the love interest of the OVA's perverted Kanegon, despite being 'rich', the coin eating monster got no where, and it was up to the Ultraman family to make them see a romantic connection.
She appeared in the game, Ultraman Ball.
