"Tonight, I present for your amusement... the death of Rena Sayama! And when that's done... I'll slaughter everyone else for an encore!"

―Adad

Adad (アダド Adado) is an alien that appears in the 2011 manga ULTRAMAN. He is an Alien Scruda (スクルーダ星人 Sukurūda Seijin).

History

ULTRAMAN

An agent of the Star Cluster Council, Adad was sent to Earth to perform several very important missions, among them, searching for the lost genius Yapool and monitor the being known as Bemular.

Despite being an agent of the Alliance, he is not well trusted, due to his unorthodox behavior. He sometimes behaves with no concern for his mission and his orders.

Adad first revealed himself at a Rena Sayama concert, breaking a man's neck before appearing on stage, where he explained that he planned on killing Rena, and then everyone else "as an encore." Shinjiro and Moroboshi responded in their Ultraman Suits, causing the crowd to think it was a publicity stunt, where they fought the alien to a standstill until Bemular arrived.

When Alien Igaru arrived to protect Rena, Adad stopped the battle, allowing Bemular to leave and revealing that the entire thing was staged to draw out Pigmon, last survivor of Planet Igaru. The floating mines he had set up before, which hovered over the crowd's head, were revealed to be projectors, which he used to reveal the truth, that aliens were living peacefully on Earth and that the murders were perpetrated by humans, who had befriended and used Pigmon to kill any naysayers of Rena, and in jealousy had put a bounty on Ultraman (Shinjiro). Adad slay Pigmon on stage, before teleporting away. Edo stopped Moroboshi from stopping him, due to Adad revealing his position as an agent of the Star Cluster Council.

He later appeared before his superior to be given a new mission, going to Bemular to ask why he tried to save the airplane. He was unable to get much out of him and left.

Adad re-emerged when Yapool and Jack went missing. Adad approached Red and warned him about the Star of Darkness getting more active, and recruited him to find Yapool, who was in America with Jack. He and Red recruited Kotaro after nursing him back to health, having heard about him in the news.

Adad joined the others in the battle against the Star of Darkness, taking on the footsoldiers, but soon found themselves overwhelmed by the Golden Fortress. Fortunately, Moroboshi arrived with new weapons and single-handedly destroyed the giant robot, leaving them and the other Ultramen to fight against the Star of Darkness' members. Adad dealt with the alien who could control gravity by smashing his head in with his staff.

Later on, Adad began to defect from the Star Cluster Alliance, hiding alien refugees in Hong Kong with some help from friends. The shady organization decided to get rid of him because he knew too much, and sent the Leo Brothers to kill Adad. He fought them while protecting his friends, using some drugs he acquired in order to keep up with the assassins. However, when the brothers transformed, they were simply too tough for Adad to handle. Moroboshi then came and rescued him using Windom, but then the Star Cluster Alliance decided to unleash Nova to kill everyone involved, including the Leo Brothers, to completely cover their tracks. Adad, Moroboshi and the Leo Brothers defeat Nova together with Shinjiro's help.

Trivia

  • Adad is clearly a homage to Dada.
    • Further tying into this idea, the original Dada was an 'Agent' sent by his people on a mission.
    • More obviously, Adad is Dada spelled backwards.
    • Adad is 271 years old during the story. The original Dada who appeared is Agent #271.
  • Adad speaks in an eloquent way, but has a cruel streak and mocks others.
  • Adad's species are warlike due to having inferior physical abilities to most of the aliens in the Ultraman Series. Adad himself was subject to genetic manipulation procedures to increase his combat ability. He was the first to undergo this procedure.
  • Adad's full title is Agent Adad of the Immigration Administration Bureau under the Star Cluster Council.
