Saramandora (サラマンドラ Saramandora /Salamandra ) is a fictional kaiju from the tokusatsu TV series, Ultraman 80.Saramandora appeared in Episodes 13.
Ultraman 80 Edit
His height is around 60 Meters tall and weighs around 40,000 Tons.
A tool of destruction used by the Gorgon, Saramandora went on a rampage in Tokyo. Buildings crumbled into piles of debris as it assaulted everything in sight, and U.G.M’s weapons were proving useless against the beast. Before Ultraman 80 could come into play, however, its alien masters summoned Saramandora back. The reptile would be unleashed yet again after their real plan failed.
The creature was again on the offensive, and this time it was also using its cannon-like blasts! Destroying several jets and bringing down the specialized aircraft utilized by U.G.M, Ultraman 80 was forced into action to contend with the beast. The monster’s cannon blasts were no use against such a being, but when he switched to his flames, the giant put up a shield and fought back, eventually using the Saxium Ray, but it did little against the creature! Surprised by this, Ultraman 80 moved in again, pummeling Saramandora again before firing his eye beams, destroying the monster.
Ultraman Mebius Edit
This Monster reappeared in the series Ultraman Mebius.
In this series, Saramandora's history is never explained as he ambushes both Mirai and Serizawa (Ultraman Mebius and Hikari's human forms.) Both quickly assumed their Ultra forms, with Mebius managing to toss Saramandora aside and used his Mebium Beam to finish him quickly. However, Saramandora's armored-plated skin allowed him to shrug it off and then he beat Mebius to the ground, so Hikari fought the monster. Hikari had little to no trouble beating and tossing Saramandora around and then finished it off with a quick slash from his Hikari Blade, which seemingly destroyed Saramandora.
At first it seemed Saramandora was destroyed, but in fact introduced a new superpower, Regeneration. Not every single cell was destroyed when Hikari "destroyed" him with his blade and so Saramandora later returned that day to resume his rampage. Team GUYS tried to take care of the monster themselves but were no match for Saramandora. Ultraman Hikari later returned and tried to take Saramandora by himself, but was beaten down by the monster. Once GUYS found a weak spot underneath Saramandora's chin they struck it, stunning Saramandora temporarily. With that opening, Ultraman Mebius returned to aid Hikari and together they both destroyed Saramandora completely by blasting him with the Mebium Shot and the Knight Shot together.
Ultraman Mebius Side Story: Armored Darkness Edit
In this sequel to the above series, Saramandora is revived (along with Roberuga, Mukadender, and Kelbeam) by Armored Darkness to attack Earth. Ultimately, Saramandora and Mukadender were both killed by Team GUYS.
Ultra Galaxy Mega Monster Battle Edit
This Monster reappeared in the series Ultra Galaxy Mega Monster Battle.
In this series, Saramandora is partnered with the monsters Nova and Lunaticks and all three monsters were guarding a military base that had supplies that the ZAP SPACY needed for their ship. Rei sent Gomora as the ZAP SPACY retrieved the parts they needed. Gomora easily destroyed Nova, vaporizing him instantly with the Super Oscilatory Wave, but Saramandora and Lunaticks double-teamed Gomora and beat him down. Before the battle could progress much further, both Saramndora and Lunaticks were destroyed by the appearance of four black ships that would immediately reveal themselves to be King Joe Black.
