Dorako (ドラコ Dorako) is a monster from the television show Ultraman. Dorako appears in an episode which in English is entitled "Night of the Comet."Dorako appeared in Episodes 25.
Subtitle: Comet Monster (彗星怪獣 Suisei Kaijū ).
His height is around 45 Meters tall. He weighs around 20,000 Tons.
Dorako was one of three monsters who was awakened by the effects of a comet that was passing through Earth's atmosphere. He fights one of the monsters who was awakened, a Yeti-like monster called "Gigass" to a stand still with both of them evenly matched. Later, the third monster awakened was Red King who briefly sided with Gigass and attacked Dorako, tearing off his wings and beating the monster to death. Eventually, Dorako died of his injuries and Red King and Gigass fought each other.
Towards the end of the series, Dorako was revived as "Re-Dorako," (His wings and claws are missing, but he has now been given hands and a crown of spikes on his head.) He, along with Telesdon and Pigmon were revived by Geronimon as a warning to humanity of Geronimon's plan for conquest. However, both Telesdon and Re-Dorako were killed by The Science Patrol before Geronimon could appear himself, while Pigmon was killed by Re-Dorako for distracting him.
This Monster reappeared in Redman.
Ultraman Powered Edit
This Monster reappeared in the series Ultraman: The Ultimate Hero.
In this series, Dorako was a bioweapon created by the Alien Baltan. It was first confronted by a Male Red King of the series, but it had little trouble with the monster, sliting his throat and killing him instantly. Ultraman Powered showed up and trying to fight the monster, but Dorako's power was too much for him to handle and defeated Ultraman Powered too and flew away. In the middle of the fight, Dorako made a low-pitch bellow that awakened the Baltans Main Weapon against Powered. Later that night, Ultraman Powered confronted Dorako again in the heart of Los Angeles and two faced off again. This time Powered was successful in destroying Dorako, but not before Dorako left a gigantic gash on Powered's chest revealing Ultraman Powered's true identity...
This Dorako greatly differed in appearance from its original look. It kept its beak, but that beak had been segmented and its wings turned into more avian in design. Its hooked claws were usually kept under sleeve-like folds of skin around its hands. It also displayed the ability to throw small serrated hooks from these folds.

However, Rei summoned Eleking to protect them and after a lengthy battle, Dorako started to gain the upper hand, until Eleking received help from the Space Pendragon as it shot missiles at Dorako. Eleking starting to gain the upper hand, tearing off Dorako's wings and killing him with a power blast of electricity while Rei attacked Dorako's master.
In the third quarter fo the series, Dorako returns as Re-Dorako owned by an Alien Hook (possibly the same one from before.) He was sent out to battle a Telesdon that belonged to an Alien Zetton. The two fought fiercely in a battle that was reminiscent to their first encounter, but shortly into the fight, both monsters were destroyed by a King Joe Black and their masters were killed by the Reionyx Hunters.
