Muruchi (ムルチ Muruchi ) is a fictional kaiju from the tokusatsu TV series, Return of Ultraman. Muruchi appeared in Episodes 33.
Subtitle: Giant Fish Monster (巨大魚怪獣 Kyodai Sakana Kaijuu ).
Return of Ultraman Edit
His height is around 48 Meters tall and weighs around 10,000 Tons.
A biological weapon created by Alien Mates, Muruchi was a weapon created in case negotiations would become rough. Mates kept him contained in his UFO, which he had buried underground due to the sheer amounts of pollution. However, Alien Mates was tragically shot and killed by a police officer in an angry mob (who were trying to kill Alien Mates too,) Muruchi arose from underground and caused havoc, believe that the planet was against Alien Mates due to his murder. Goh transformed into Ultraman Jack and both he and Muruchi fought in a local refinery plant until he destroyed Muruchi with a single use of the Specium Beam.
Ultraman Ace Edit
This Monster reappeared in the series Ultraman Ace
Appearing in the middle of a battle between Ultraman Ace, Doragoris, and Metron Jr. Muruchi joined the fray and began to fight Ace along with the Choju and his Alien Master. However, his reappearance was short-lived as after Muruchi accidentally rammed into Doragoris while trying to attack Ace, Doragoris angrily attacked Muruchi, viciously killing the monster by tearing off his lower jaw and his left leg.
Muruchi's sudden appearance in the series has caused some confusion as to why he appeared. Some believe that this Muruchi was in fact the original, having survived his fight with Ultraman Jack, or that the Alien Mates sent another of its kind to either attack Ace or Yapool. The true reason remains a mystery to this day.
Ultraman Mebius Edit
This Monster reappeared in the series Ultraman Mebius as Zoa Muruchi.
Zoa Muruchi was created by the son of the original Alien Mates (from Return of Ultraman,) but this time as a means of vengeance against the humans for killing his father. While Zoa Muruchi and Ultraman Mebius fought, Alien Mates met the principal of the boy his father adopted. After learning of a tragic story about his efforts to find the original Mates's UFO, Mates realized he had not only made a grave mistake, but he also sealed the fate of an innocent, undeserving monster. Overcome with grief, but wanted to believe in human kindness again. He then called out to Mebius to end it. Mebius used the Mebium beam, and destroyed Zoa Muruchi, after it let out one last anguish-filled cry, ending the suffering the Alien Mates have gone through.
Ultra Galaxy Mega Monster Battle Edit
This Monster reappeared in the series Ultra Galaxy Mega Monster Battle again as Zoa Muruchi.
Confronting the ZAP SPACY underwater (after King Joe Black shot the Pendragon down into the ocean) Zoa Muruchi was attrached by a sonar frequency that the ZAP SPACY had created to scare away a group of Arigeras. Threatened by the imposing monster, Rei sent out Eleking to battle it, as Gomora wasn't as adept at fighting underwater. The battle went back and forth, but eventually, Eleking's electric attacks proved too strong, and Zoa Muruchi was destroyed by his electric tail shock.
