- Hallucination Alien (幻覚宇宙人 Genkaku Uchūjin)
- Ultraman Max: Interactive Alien (対話宇宙人 Taiwa Uchūjin)
Throughout a city district many outbreaks of violence occurred without warning from innocent people. After one of the violent men mysteriously died, the Ultra Garrison was to investigate the matter. During this time Dan Moroboshi encountered a truck that tried to run him over him, but found it had no driver. He was contacted by the Alien Metron telepathically, who told Dan that he knew he was Ultraseven in disguise. After two Ultra Garrison members became violent, they assumed the cigarettes might be responsible. After breaking one open they found a red substance inside, not native to Earth. During some reconnaissance work the Ultra Garrison traced a cigarette supplier to an abandoned warehouse. Dan went in to find the strange man in black and found his true form of Alien Metron, who acted like a friendly alien. However, when Dan managed to see pass his deception Alien Metron attempted to flee in his spaceship. The Ultra Garrison was quick to respond and managed to bring down Alien Metron's ship even when it split in half with Dan turning into Ultraseven and his adversary escaping the first destroyed attack. After a short fight Ultraseven proved more maneuverable and managed to cut Alien Metron in half while he was in midair with the Eye Slugger and finished him with the Emerium Ray.
- Alien Metron's design is based primarily off of a variety of aquatic shellfish all over Japan. He resembles a whale if he was lying on his back.
- Alien Metron's head originally arrived on set unpainted, so color was quickly applied minutes before shooting began.
- Alien Metron is named after the "Metro Subway" in Tokyo as Metron's actions and strategy were mostly conducted "underground" (without the knowledge of humanity or the Ultra Garrison).
- The battle at sunset between Ultraseven and Alien Metron was shot at the same time with Ultraseven's battle against Alien Spell.
- Though completely destroyed by Ultraseven in the main continuity, this Alien Metron reappears in the Ultraman Max continuity and is said to have only been "greatly injured" by Ultraseven's Eye Slugger and NOT hit with the Emerium Ray. This does explain how he is never shown completely exploding, just suffering an explosion to the top of his spine.
- Alien Metron's appearance began a tradition of associating him with meeting the protagonist over a drink, usually with a coffee table between them.
- He was seen in the Ultraseven [SNES] game and the arcade game Ultra Toukun Densetsu in the second stage.
- The TNT Dub of Ultraseven refers to Alien Metron's homeworld as the Planet Kierlon.
- Alien Metron and Ultraseven made special guess appearances in the wrestling tournament known as "DDT Expo - progress and harmony of pro wrestling", wrestling each other in the third round.
Alien Metron reappeared in episodes 7 and 8 of the series Ultraman Ace, as the son of the original Alien Metron: Alien Metron Jr. (メトロン星人 Jr. Metoron Seijin Junia)
A large planet known as Goron was detected far out in space, and would destroy the Earth in seven days. It was sent by Alien Metron Jr., who later emerged from the ground near the TAC HQ, and began destroying the nearby buildings. Before TAC could act, it disappeared into thin air. Unknown to the rest of the crew, Metron Jr. reappeared in the HQ, and attacked a woman known as Maya who worked for TAC with his finger bolts. He then entered her body, and used it as a disguise.
Maya ran out of her room and planted a bomb exploding a sector in TAC, Maya changed back into Metron. Hokuto found Metron Jr. inside the HQ later, and shot it in the arm. Metron Jr. ran off to Maya's room, and changed back into her. Hokuto at first was confused, but then saw she had a wound on her arm as well. He knew she was really Metron Jr., but before he could act, the newest Choju, Doragory, mysteriously appeared in a forest nearby. It was making its way toward the HQ, and TAC was deployed to stop it. Doragory easily withstood the attack, and fought back with his deadly flames. Hokuto and Minami merged and became Ultraman Ace, who began to fight with the new Chouju. During all this, Metron Jr. attacked the main control center of TAC, and destroyed most of their machines, as well some of the staff. This way, they could not use any weapons to destroy Planet Goron.
The fight lasted a long time before Ace used the Ace Barrier, which took up significant energy, but managed to send Doragory into another dimension. However, Metron Jr. was back in human form, and persuaded a TAC member to take him to the control centre where the main weapon for destroying the planet was held. But Minami and Hokuto managed to expose Metron Jr. to the others, and were able to chase it outside, where the entire TAC crew shot it to the ground. But Metron Jr. was not dead, as it then assumed its gigantic sized form! It attacked TAC while, in another dimension, Yapool brought Doragory back to the Earth to fight, revealing Metron Jr. was helping Yapool. Minami and Hokuto had no choice but to become Ultraman Ace again.
Ace fought both Doragory and Metron Jr. at the same time, but was soon being knocked back and forth by both. Things only got worse when the monster Muruchi suddenly appeared without warning! Muruchi joined in on the fray and attacked Ace as well. Against three foes; a Monster, a Choju, and a Seijin, all hope for victory seemed lost. Muruchi then charged at Ace, who was able to leap over him. Muruchi accidentally rammed into Doragory, who grew angry and instantly started beating Muruchi to the ground. It then used its immense strength to tear Muruchi's lower jaw off, as well as the flesh from his jaw to his belly. Muruchi screamed in agony as Doragory continued his onslaught by tearing off his left leg. Muruchi then grew silent as Ace attacked Doragory from behind. But it was pointless, as Metron Jr. and Doragory soon gained the upper hand once again.
Ace had no choice but to use the Ace Barrier again, this time sending both to another dimension by splitting in two. However, Metron Jr. soon returned to Earth, encased in a blue orb. He was found by two TAC members, who saw him resting. Going against their commander's wishes, they attacked it. Metron Jr. was unfazed by the attack, but soon woke up. Metron Jr. attacked both the ground crew and the aircraft with its destructive flashes. After sending their aircraft to the ground, it disappeared. It later reappeared when Doragory returned to the Earth from the other dimension, as the missile for destroying the meteor was nearing its launch. TAC attacked both with all of their might until Minami and Hokuto were able to merge into Ultraman Ace one last time. Ace managed to hold both at bay until the missile launched, and it eventually destroyed the meteor. However, Ace was still too weak to fight off both Metron Jr. and Doragory. He used the majority of his energy to attack Metron Jr. with the Ultra Guillotine, a cutting move that sliced Metron Jr. in half right down the middle, ending his attack on the Earth.
- This suit of Alien Metron Jr. is different from the other suits. A difference can be seen clearly as the head has a "mouth".
- Furthermore, some sources claim the suit to be modified from Ultraman's due to their similar texture.
- Metron Jr. was the second example of the an alien that came to opppose an Ultra after his father was killed on Earth. The first would be Alien Baltan Jr.
- Although the newer suits are different suits from the first one,They were just more modern versions of the first one, This one had a mouth and non-yellow lights.
- Aside from his disguised form, Metron Jr. never speaks, but instead makes a low growling noise.
- Metron Jr. is also refered to as "Metron II".
- Alien Metron Jr. was seen in one of the flashbacks of Ultraman Mebius & the Ultra Brothers.
- Although not physically seen, Alien Metron Jr. was one of the monsters who made up Beryudora's left arm in Mega Monster Battle: Ultra Galaxy Legends The Movie.
This alien re-appeared in an Ultraseven 1994 TV Special - Ultraseven the Ground of the Earth Aliens.
Ultraseven is first seen battling an Alien Metron in space defeating him with his Wide Shot. Later on Earth the same Metron's son and daughter attempted to take over the Earth. They kidnapped a researcher forcing him to build a device for them before they were confronted by the Ultra Garrison and Dan. After being trounced by Dan, and the scientist escaping, the two dropped their disguises. While the daughter was killed the son took giant size and fought Seven with his beast Dinosaur. Alien Metron used the device to cover the sky in clouds, cutting Ultraseven of from the sun and limiting his energy supply. The two began to trounce Ultraseven until his old friend from his days in the Ultra garrison took a jet and cleared the sky for him. Seven then proceeded to destroy the two ending their threat to mankind.
- The Metrons' human form and their gear may have inspired the Xialiens of Godzilla: Final Wars.
- One of the two Metron's human disguise was played by Kamui Kyoji, who later played Leader Suwa, Yuki Kisaragi's former colleague, in EVOLUTION series.
The original Alien Metron reappeared in the series Ultraman Max episode 24. He appeared with a scar that traveled down his body from his front to his back.
Violent outbreaks have been occurring in a city when people answer their cellphones. It is related to a similar incident 40 years ago when people would become violent after smoking cigarettes. Detective Narasaki is put on the case to track down the cause, along with DASH. Kaito eventually spots a suspicious old man, and follows him until he finds a cell phone on the ground. After answering it, he finds himself falling under the control of the violence wave, and notices the old man approaching him. The old man explains that he is not of his planet, and deduces Kaito's identity as Ultraman Max. After a run in with the detective, who seems to have met Alien Metron in the past, he escapes, with Kaito following close behind. Narasaki tells Mizuki about an alien that his father treated 40 years ago for a large cut down his middle (possibly given to him by Ultraseven's Eye Slugger). Narasaki believes Metron to not be evil, just angry that his town has changed. Alien Metron takes Kaito back to his warehouse, where he tells him that he has been studying Earth for 40 years, and intends to leave soon. He theorizes that mankind will eventually destroy itself, and he was just speeding up the inevitable. After beating Kaito in a round of rock-paper-scissors, Metron turns into his giant form, and begins jumping around. Ultraman Max appears, expecting a fight, but Metron merely bids him farewell before his spaceship arrives. He then transforms into a ball of light and boards the ship, leaving the Earth.
- To further cement him as a survivor from Ultraseven's Eye Slugger attack, a huge scar lining was shown visible on his face.
- This episode was later featured in episode 50 of Ultraman Retsuden, "Resurrection of Metron! The Untargeted City!!".
Ultra Galaxy Mega Monster Battle: Never Ending Odyssey
An Alien Metron appeared in the series, Ultra Galaxy Mega Monster Battle: Never Ending Odyssey. This alien was also a Reionics.
Alien Metron was another Reionics taking part in the battle but he would soon find himself face to face with Reimon Burst Mode and Reionic Burst Gomora. He sent Doragory after him and the fight was on but Gomora's new found power was far too great. In the end, Doragory was badly hurt by the Super Oscillatory Wave, hurting Metron through the link. Metron had no choice but to recall Doragory, both to save his kaiju and himself. However, Reimon wouldn’t allow it and assaulted the alien as Rei watched helplessly from within the power mad entity. Metron found himself pinned down by Reimon, begging for mercy but Reimon knew none in Burst Mode and merely kept the attack. However, luckily for Metron, something drew Reimon's attention in the wilderness, causing him to leave the alien alive, much to Metron’s relief. However, Metron was not one to forgive and forget. He found the Pendragon and monitored through the windows, seeing what was happening with interest before entering the vessel and asking Rei if he remembered him. Metron was unhappy and taunted Rei, nearly triggering another Reimon Burst Mode transformation. Metron teleported to await his challenge, sitting at a table with a drink but the Pendragon launched into the sky, much to Metron’s annoyance. To stop their escape, Metron sent out Vakishim. Finally, Reimon summoned Reionic Burst Gomora into the fight, giving Metron his chance at revenge. While Vakishim was strong enough to put up a good fight, Gomora's power was too great and he drove his horn into the Chouju, killing him with the Super Oscillatory Wave. With Vakishim’s demise, Metron was killed as well, as were the rules of the Reionics Battle.

- Doragory being one of Alien Metron's monsters was intended to pay homage to his first appearance, being the bodyguard to Metron Jr.

Ultra Super Fight
In an episode of Ultra Super Fight, it is shown through a flashback that an Alien Pegassa was abusing an Alien Metron by whipping him with a chain. Despite Metron's pleas for forgiveness and for the punishment to stop, Pegassa continued until Metron grabbed hold of the chain, pulling it from Pegassa and turning the tables. Metron carried out a similar punishment on Pegassa until he got bored, and tied Pegassa's hands together with the chain before leaving.
In another episode, Metron (possibly the same one) was smoking a large cigar and drinking coffee in a field when Pandon came by. Interested by the tobacco, Pandon wanted to take one of Metron's cigars, and begged Metron to give him one under the guise of trying to make him stop smoking. Metron pushed Pandon away, to which Pandon responded by kicking Metron over, and he dropped the cigar, which Pandon quickly snatched. The two squabbled over the tobacco until Metron hurled his coffee table at Pandon, knocking him over. Metron grabbed and threw Pandon around, with Pandon getting a few punches in. Metron eventually stepped on Pandon's tail, but Pandon jabbed Metron with a stick, then sent him down a bank, knocking Metron unconscious and allowing a now-ecstatic Pandon to take what was left of Metron's tobacco.
