Antlar (アントラー Antora) is a fictional beetle-like kaiju featured in the tokusatsu 1966 TV series, Ultraman. He first appeared in episode seven of the series, The Blue Stone of Baraji, and has made subsequent returns in more recent entries of the Ultraman franchise.
Antlar's character subtitle is (Magnet Monster (磁力怪獣) - Jiryoku Kaijū), which has also been used as an alias for him, especially in 2005's Ultraman Max.
His height is around 40 Meters tall and weighs around 20,000 Tons.
During an excavation mission deep in a desert region, the Science Patrol was ambushed by the monster Antlar, whom had dug an antlion-like hole in the middle of the desert. They tried attacking the massive instectiod monster with their lasers, but Antlar's rough hide was impenetrable by far and proceeded to fire his magnetism ray from his mandibles, sucking in The Science Patrol's weapons. Luckily, the Science Patrol managed to escape while Antlar burrowed away.
While on their mission, The Science Patrol then found an ancient civilization that was being attacked by the monster too, to which they learned was called "Antlar." They also learned that the civilization hailed Ultraman as a prophet, naming their city after a blue stone "Baraji" that was given to them by Ultraman himself, many years ago.
Suddenly Antlar returned, attacking the City of Baraji. Hayata transformed into Ultraman to face Antlar, but the giant was tricked countlessly by Antlar's burrowing and his magnetic ray to reel Ultraman in. Ultraman managed to tear off on Antlar’s two pincers and fired a Specium Ray, but Antlar's exoskeleton was too tough and the two continued to fight. Realizing Ultraman was running out of time, The Princess grabbed the Stone of Baraji and asked the Science Patrol to throw it at Antlar in hope of destroying it. As soon as they did, a shower of sparks erupted from all over Antlar's body, ending its life and destruction.
Ultraman Max Edit
This Monster reappeared in the series Ultraman Max
In this series, Antlar was a monster that destroyed the city of "Barrage" long ago and that Antlar would return in the future to punish those that polluted the environment in a prophecy. Four thousand years later, Antlar returned in Tokyo, attacking the city with his magnetic beam with little to nothing that DASH could to stop it as Antlar left to rest.
Once DASH found out that the Blue Stone of Barrage was the only thing that could weaken Antlar, the monster returned to attack once again. While DASH's weapons were powerless, Kaito turned into Ultraman Max to fight Antlar himself. It seemed the two were evenly matched until Antlar used his magnetic ray to his advantage on Max, attacking him with a transformer and even blocking his Maxium Cannon. Finally once DASH found a Stone of Barrage, they fired it at Antlar, greatly weakening the monster enough for Ultraman Max to finish it off with the Maxium Cannon.
Ultra Galaxy Mega Monster Battle: Never Ending Odyssey Edit
This Monster reappeared in the series Ultra Galaxy Mega Monster Battle: Never Ending Odyssey.
In this series, Antlar was a monster owned by an Alien Balbalu who used him for his own sadistic pleasure, attacking the ZAP SPACY and its Captain. However, Reimon appeared in his Burst Mode as well as his Gomora and both Gomora and Antlar fought hard and brutally. Once the ZAP SPACY was reunited, Antlar tried to attack it's main ship the Spacy Pendragon. Gomora however transformed into Reionic Burst mode and viciously attacked Antlar, tearing off its pincers. Greatly weakened by his monster's state, Alien Balbalu called back his Antlar to safety and retreated.
Mega Monster Battle: Ultra Galaxy Legend The Movie Edit
This Monster reappeared in the movie Mega Monster Battle: Ultra Galaxy Legend The Movie.
Antlar is one of Ultraman Belial's 100 Monster Army. Antlar was killed by Ultraman's Ultra Attack Ray. This also marks Ultraman's actual victory over the monster due to that he never did truly beat Antlar in the original show.
