Aboras (アボラス Aborasu) is one of two ancient Kaiju that were released in episode 19 of Ultraman. A monster whose rivalry with the fellow ancient monster Banila has persisted for centuries, the original Aboras was sealed away by humans in the distant past, but was released after scientists found and inadvertently activated the capsule he had been contained in. The stronger of the two monsters, Aboras managed to defeat Banila, but then turned his ire on the SSSP, forcing Ultraman to take action.

Aboras is one of two ancient devil beasts sealed away eons ago and the archenemy of Banila. The destructive twin behemoths remained trapped within their capsules, until the container for both capsules was unearthed, Banila's having fallen out. While Aboras’s capsule was taken by the Science Patrol, Banila’s capsule accidentally got transported to the dump, where the dirt from the excavation was taken. Aboras's capsule was tested on by scientists, but once it surged with electricity, the capsule was opened, releasing Aboras. Aboras breathed out the light blue mist at the buildings, then the buildings covered with the mist foamed up into a sticky goo and corroded.
While Banila attacked the city, the Science Patrol was preoccupied by the monster, leaving Aboras to set his own path of destruction with no opposition. After Banila was released, both instinctive rivals met at the Olympics grounds and battled viciously. Both Banila and Aboras appeared to be evenly matched in both physical strength and special abilities. However, once the Science Patrol arrived, they focused their efforts on finishing off Banila, since he was attacked the most. As the Science Patrol attacked Banila, Aboras was faced with opposition as well, but his armor prevented any damage being taken by the Science Patrol's weapons. Once they shot out one of Banila's eyes, Aboras took the opportunity to finish him off with its acidic foam, dissolving its flesh reducing Banila to nothing.
With Banila dead, Aboras focused his wrath on the Science Patrol, but then was met with more opposition, this time by Ultraman.
Aboras breathed out acidic mist toward Ultraman, jumped up to avoid it, and kicked Aboras. But its body was so tough he merely bounced off Aboras's body and fell to the ground. Aboras took that opportunity to rush him and take the mount position, hanging over Ultraman. Ultraman released his whole strength to push Aboras off, kicking it in the stomach, about to shoot Spacium Beam. One moment earlier, Aboras breathed out acidic mist. Ultraman was completely shrouded in the fog the mist had created. The fog gradually cleared, Ultraman's limbs became visible. He was completely coated with white sticky foam, immobilized in the Spacium Beam pose. Focasing all of his energy, Ultraman shook the acid foam off, then his color timer began to blink. Ultraman overpowered Aboras. The monster was destroyed after three consecutive Spacium Beams.

- Aboras is created from a modified Red King suit. Its head was removed and replaced and the body was given a dark blue green paint-job.
- Aboras's roar is reused from the Toho Monster, Baragon.
- In the original screenplay, Banila was to team up with Aboras and battle with Ultraman. Another early concept was that Aboras was a liquid monster that could take a monstrous form and was controlled by people from the 19th century. Additionally, he would be able to hide inside of a water bottle. This plan was later kept and drafted for a Capsule Kaiju that eventually never came to fruition.
- Aboras's suit was later modified into Red King II.
- Aboras is one of the monsters to make up Belyudra's Right Arm in Mega Monster Battle: Ultra Galaxy Legends The Movie.
- This episode was later featured in episode 54 of Ultraman Retsuden, "Demons Rise Again! Aboras vs. Banila!!".
Aboras reappeared in episode 27 of the series, The☆Ultraman.
One of several monsters housed within the rocky confines of the disguised Baladon spaceship, waiting to be unleashed. When the Science Garrison moved in to investigate the new island, several Kaiju were let out of their cages, one being Aboras. The horned titan quickly drew battle against another of its kind, Banila. As chaos ripped through the island, the forces began to bomb it. This only halted the action for a brief second, but when Ultraman Joneus was summoned, Aboras and its monstrous comrades were ultimately destroyed by the hero's Planium Beam.
- In this series, Aboras possesses two spikes on his back, a feature which is not present in any of his other appearances. Same as in the regular Ultraman series, Aboras II sprays a foamy acid from his mouth.
Ultraman: The Ultimate Hero
Aboras reappeared in episode 7 of the series Ultraman: The Ultimate Hero.
Much like their original counterparts, Banila and Aboras were locked away long ago in special sarcophagus (rather than capsules) After Banila's sarcophagus was found, WINR translated the hieroglyphics and revealed the warning of the existence of the two devil Kaiju. Fortunately, they could only emerge if their sarcophagus were exposed to certain sounds. After WINR found out Aboras released, Banila's sarcophagus was released as well.
The two devil Kaiju met in a Los Angeles neighborhood on the outskirts of the main city where they began to battle. Aboras seemed to have won the battle with his melting liquid but was met by an ambush by WINR, whom tried to attack Aboras but with little success. Eventually, Banila used "acidic reformation" to continue his attack. As the two devil Kaiju fought each other again, Kenichi Kai turned into Ultraman Powered. During the battle, WINR used a special machine to emit 23,000 Hertz greatly weakening both devil Kaiju and allowed Powered to destroy Aboras and then Banila with the Mega Spacium Beam.
- In Ultraman: The Ultimate Hero, Aboras is given a distinct redesign to deviate from his recycled appearance to Red King. He is more blue in color and his body resembles that of a Tyrannosaurus. His tail is given a tadpole-like appearance as well.
- Aboras's roar is the same as in the original Ultraman with generic dinosaur sounds mixed in (the same sounds used for the Godzilla: Unleashed monster Obsidius).
- In this series, Aboras's acid is more of a liquid than a spray of gas.
- Both Banila and Aboras share a weakness in this series: high frequency sounds can stun them both.
- Powered Aboras is one of the monsters to make up Belyudra's body in Mega Monster Battle: Ultra Galaxy Legends The Movie.
It is likely that Aboras returned to space in his original form after Ginga defeated Dark Lugiel.
Aboras, along with his enemy Banila, first appeared in the opening episode of Ultraman X. Like his brother, he was reverted back to normal from a Spark Doll after a solar flare struck Earth. Aboras decided to fight Banila in Moscow.
- As with Banila and Peguila, Aboras's suit was sourced from the Attraction Division of Tsuburaya Productions, with the suit normally being reserved for use in stage shows.
