Subtitle: Root of Destruction Angel (根源破滅天使 Kongen Hametsu Tenshi?)
Zogu, better known as the Root of Destruction and the ruler of the Dark Zone wished to conquer Earth by sending many aliens to attack it from her galaxy. With the destruction of Shinigami as Zebub she decided to use her trump card by using the Dobishi. But even at their full potential, the Dobishi where still having trouble against the guardians of the earth and sea. Finally descending to make her entrance, Zogu destroyed the three Dobishi that had been fighting the two ultras, and descended from a long beam of light. To show the heroes what she was capable of she restored Ultraman Gaia and Ultraman Agul to their full power. She then put Agul in a trance to come towards her, Zogu then used a shock wave ball to send him flying across the city and fired at Gaia as he tried to help Agul. Agul tried to hold his own, but it cost him his life gauge. After Zogu finished off Gaia and Agul she took their energy to prevent them from returning. Team Hercules and an EX Fighter driven by the artificial intelligence program, PAL, fought Zogu only for her to destroy the EX Fighter and ascend to her wormhole.
The team XIG uses the monster's energy and convert it to light for Gamu and Fujimiya to transform.The light went all around the world to reach them,Both of them raised their hand a few times and they transformed.Once they transformed,Gaia became Gaia Supreme and they fought. Zogu used a shockwave ball but they used power shields to block it. They pushed the shockwave ball to her then used many types of balls and beams. Zogu was in pain and got annoyed, she transformed into her true form.
Demon formZogu's true form, a demon into which she transforms into during the final episode of Ultraman Gaia.
After being ravaged by Agul and Gaia’s attacks, the God of Monsters known as Zogu shed her angelic appearance to reveal the true demon she was. The unbelievably huge beast crushed buildings below her massive feet and soon attacked with an energy ball, only for the two to combine their shields to defend themselves. Gaia Supreme flew at Zogu, only to be batted down and crushed under her foot. Agul freed his ally, then together smashed off Zogu’s horns, only annoying the titanic ruler of M91, who batted them to the ground and levelled them with her energy ball.
As the two recovered, the legendary Mizunoeno Dragon arrived on the scene and attacked her with everything he had, but it was like a mosquito attacking the demon, succeeding in nothing but annoyance. The Root of Destruction unleashed another energy ball, striking the brave guardian with enough force to take him out of the battle. However, Agul and Gaia had recovered from the attack and flew straight through her throat, erupting out her back. But even this did little more than enrage the tyrant, who chased after them crushing everything in her wake. But the two Earth heroes managed to get far enough to charge up and fire their Proton Streams together, forming a blast of energy that tore clean through Zogu’s massive body. Roaring in agony, Zogu’s huge form exploded into a shower of flesh, ending not only Zogu’s reign of terror but the invasion from Galaxy M91 once and for all.
