Then, he became an ape and knocked out the officers. The Ultra Garrison decided to investigate. They found blood at the scene of the attack. After doing some examining, they found out it was human blood! Dan Moroboshi and Anne Yuri went to a monkey research center for more information. As Anne went to talk to some of the scientists (possessed by Goron) Dan took a look at some of the monkeys. He came upon one and said in his mind that he detected higher intelligence. As they looked around, they realized they were being spied. Dan had a plan that they will pretend to leave then, they go around and see what they're up to. Then, Gorry secretly sabotaged their car so, they couldn't leave! As Dan tried to fix his car, Gorry ambushed him. After a lot of powerful hits, Dan was knocked out. As Anne was still exploring, she was attacked by the scientist that planned to turn Anne into a primape! As Anne was about to be a turned, Gorry broke free from the chains that were holding him back. Gorry wrestled down one of the scientist as Anne tried to escape. As Gorry approached Anne and carried her outside, Dan forced Gorryto retreat by attacking him. Dan and Anne were reunited. Anne decided to go on a raft back to H.Q. until Gorry was on the boat and was finally killed by the other Ultra Garrison members. While Dan was still investigating, Alien Goron revealed his plan to turn man back into a primeape. With no other option, Dan became Ultraseven. Ultraseven was about to attack but, Goron disappeared! Ultraseven threw his Eye Slugger high into the air as Goron was hit hard. As Ultraseven charged at the powerful ape, Alien Goron shot his eye beams. Ultraseven became dizzy and was knocked out. As Alien Goron was dragging Ultraseven, he shot the Emerium beam at Goron, freeing himself from the ape's grip. As Ultraseven and Alien Goron were both in a grip, arm to arm.
