Ultraman Orb Chronicle

Chapter 2: 'I am the Galaxy's Migrating Bird' Arc

Alien Gapiya Sadis met Gai several thousands years ago, during one of Gai's journeys on his second mission to collect the four elements for the Orb Calibur. Serving as the bodyguard to Count Orlok on Planet Ganun Api, Sadis faced Gai when he tried to foil Orlok's scheme until his employer accidentally awakened Gora after detonating his own mine. Gai defeated Sadis and the latter seemingly died by falling into a volcano.

Chapter 7: 'Space Witch Murnau's Counterattack, Sadis' Return'

Sadis (サデス Sadesu) is one of the aliens that appeared in the movie.

Eager for a rematch, Sadis was recruited by Murnau as a bodyguard. He faced Gai with full enthusiasm as he met with the wandering hero, stating he was glad to be back, and had no qualms with Gai but due to his role, they had to fight anyway. Later on, he would become giant forcing Gai to transform into Orb and combat him in his Burnmite and Hurricane Slash forms. Sadis complimented Orb on his skill and his new abilities, saying they put up a good fight, but soon Sadis got the upper hand when he threw away Orb's Orb Slugger Lance.

However, Sadis still saw him as a worthy opponent and when his Color Timer flashed, he slapped Jack and Zero back into Orb, ordered him to get a grip on himself (Eventually, Orb even nodded to him as if he was saying "Fine"), and if he was ok, so they could finish the fight fairly and honorably. Until then, Alien Guts, Alien Hipporit, and Alien Temperor showed up, interrupted their battle then attacked the Ultra with their signature attacks and took him hostage on Murnau's orders, leaving Sadis frustrated.

He then fired at Ultraman Orb and Ultraman X when they were about to finish off Darebolic and he soon went up against Ultraman Orb's Thunder Breastar, and defeats him after Darebolic turned X into jewelry. Orb later returns as Orb Trinity and quickly defeats him using the Trinitium Break. Later on, Sadis restored himself and targeted Orb with Darebolic's built-in cannon, and managed to defeat him again until Ultraseven arrived. He fights Ultraseven and loses.

"Impossible! But that's awesome!!"

―Sadis' last words

Eventually he switched his target back to Orb but is now not a match for him, and uses the Final Boost Charge on Darebolic's cannon, only for it to be overwhelmed by the Trinitium Light Ring and had himself sliced in half, putting an end to him for good. Ultraman Orb The Movie: Let Me Borrow the Power of Bonds!


  • Voice actor: Koichi Yamadera
    • Alongside Shingo Yanagisawa who portrayed Ittetsu Shibukawa in Ultraman Orb, Koichi Yamadera was also among the Japanese dub actors of Ultraman: Towards the Future, voicing Lloyd Wilder. Yamadera was also excited to participate in the Ultraman Series for the first time since Towards the Future. Although initially nervous with his character, Kiyotaka Taguchi encouraged him to put ad-libs into his line, which was also practiced by the other alien roles in said movie.[3]

Alien "Gapia"

Ultraman Taiga


Another Alien Gapiya named Abel (アベル Aberu) is known as an alien hitman, and the younger brother of Sadis. Abel was hired by Kirisaki to get rid of the Tri-Squad.

As soon as Abel landed, a man approached and hugged him, thinking that he would be able to bring him back to the "world of stars", and nearly suffocates Abel. They sit down and talk, but Abel wants to kill him instead, but is saved by Kana Sasaki who manages to shock Abel with a taser.

Eventually, Abel meets up with Kirisaki and introduces himself. He suspects that Kirisaki has a true form and is surprised to see that he is actually Ultraman Tregear. After shaking hands, Abel sets off to kill the people who saw him, and runs into the man and Kana once more and tries to assault them, but Kana holds Abel off until Homare Soya arrives and deals with him. Abel transforms into a giant, and in response Hiroyuki Kudo transforms into Ultraman Taiga.

They shoot at each other until Taiga was hit by a building thrown at him by Abel, who then successfully shot him. Taiga then used the Segmeger Ring before switching with Ultraman Titas. Abel, who attempted to use his Harpoon Railgun to shoot Titas, was surprised to find that the railgun's shots simply bounced off Titas's muscular body harmlessly. Annoyed, Abel calls him a "macho monkey" and insults his star motif, which angers Titas who punches him away in a fist clash. Preparing to shoot Kana and the Perolynga, Titas switched with Ultraman Fuma, who got called a "skinny monkey" and faked Abel out with an afterimage and sliced him using his own sword. He then finished off Abel with the Trenchant-Star Light Wave Shuriken, slicing the alien in half. In his final moments, Abel realizes that he died the same way as his brother did. The Flying Saucer Is Not Coming


  • Voice actor: Shunichi Maki
  • Abel turned himself into a cyborg out of admiration for his brother.
  • Abel's suit was repainted from Sadis', with some body parts recolored from red to dark blue, and his eyes replaced with red.
  • His Harpoon Railgun's firing noise is recycled from those of RX-78-2 Gundam's Beam Rifle. Additionally as a blue colored sibling to a red older brother, he may be a reference to Gridman Sigma and Ultraman Blu altogether.
  • The alien saucer that Abel rode to Earth is recycled from one of the Mysterious Saucer fleet ships in Ultraman Mebius.
  • Kirisaki himself states that Abel is the first person to ever see through his human disguise.
  • Interestingly, the order of which the Tri-Squad members fight Abel mirrors that of Orb's first fight with Sadis, each member representing one of the Ultra's forms taken during the battle.
    • Taiga = Burnmite
    • Titas = Thunder Breastar
    • Fuma = Hurricane Slash
  • As said in Ultraman Taiga Blu-ray Box I, the script originally had Abel instead be a more normal alien. However, due to Alien Perolynga's presence in the story and Sadis's design being based on him, episode director Kiyotaka Taguchi ordered for Abel to be an Alien Gapiya.
