Ultraman Tiga

Back in the year of 1965, Yanakargi came to Earth while, Ultraman pursued it. Then he sealed the beast at the bottom of a lake in Japan. 31 years later, an alien by the name of Charija, comes to Earth to find or buy a new monster for unknown purposes. Charija realizes that he had to go back to the year of 1965 if, he wanted to get a new monster. He used a strange machine that took him back in time! Then he released Yanakargi from his wet tomb. Daigo could not just stand there as a monster went on a rampage. He transforms to Ultraman Tiga and fight. After a long fight, Yanakargi drained Tiga's energy. Suddenly, due to Tsuburaya's strong will, he summoned Ultraman. Ultraman came to the rescue and healed Tiga. Ultraman Tiga shot his Zepellion Ray and Ultraman shot his Specium Ray. They were too much for Yanakargi to withstand. He fell and exploded. Charija then disappeared, vowing to return.
