Ultraman Wiki

Alien Pedan (ペダン星人 Pedan Seijin)[2] is an alien race from Ultraseven. A race of aliens known for their highly advanced technology, the Pedan are warmongerers, intent on conquering other planets through the use of their military might, and are best known for being the original creators of King Joe, one of the Ultraman Series' most iconic robots.


  • Tactical Alien (策略宇宙人 Sakuryaku Uchūjin)
  • Ultraman Taiga: Space Phantom (宇宙怪人 Uchū Kaijin)[2]



Their name comes from the katakana translation of the word "Pedantic".



After an observation rocket sent by TDF to Planet Pedan was mistaken as an invasion attempt, the people of Pedan began retaliate by first sending off their threat to Washington. In the present day, they secretly arrived and kidnapped the American scientist Dorothy Anderson who was on her way to Japan, replacing her with an impostor and destroy identification documents of her escort Melvin Webb. "Dorothy" soon made her way to Japan and assassinate three other foreign scientists that went undercover before taking refuge in UG. After the submarine escort Arthur was destroyed, "Dorothy" escaped when Melvin exposed her and left King Joe to attack the Defense Center in Rokko Mountains.

"(laughs) Nice job! Beautiful! This is our chance to launch the attack! The moment I saw that beautiful planet I swore I'd conquer it myself. I'll give the order to stand by for a full-scale attack."

―The Alien Pedan King Joe pilot.

The next day, Dan Moroboshi confronted "Dorothy" and try to clarify the true intentions of the Earthlings. Seeing through his true nature, she complies and return the original Dorothy amnesiac but double crosses the deal after taking a liking towards Earth's beauty and wanted to take it as their own. The Earth agent already made their move by having King Joe attack the Kobe pier while a troop of spaceships were already on their way. Dan participated and fought as Seven after being duped by the Pedan spy. After King Joe's destruction by the Ryton R30 Bomb (manufactured with the real Dorothy's help), the Pedan agents try to escape with a saucer until Seven gunned them, forcing the rest of the invasion fleets to retreat.

  • Actress: Linda Hardisty ("Dorothy Anderson")
  • The appearance of Alien Pedan were originally silhouetted until a blink-and-you-miss-it scene where Seven open fired on their escape ship with the Wide Shot. This caused the interior to explode and partially exposing the alien himself. He is portrayed as a black wetsuit with a green head and a pair of antennae, which was later clarified by series director Kazuho Mitsuta in 2012.
  • In the TNT/Cinar English dub, they are called the Rodanians (no connection to the Toho monster Rodan).

In the manga adaptation of Mega Monster Battle: ULTRA MONSTERS arcade game (50 years after the Ultra Galaxy Mega Monster Battle), the Alien Pedan team are portrayed as benevolent aliens who were at war with the Alien Nackle.

A Pedan soldier was stranded on a strange planet which Io Mikura happened to be in as a result of Bullton. Their friendship was short-lived when he sacrificed his life to protect Io by ramming an Alien Hipporit with his King Joe. Io would later encounter a group of Alien Pedan led by Captain Dorothy (ドロシー艦長 Doroshī Kanchō), who sought the Reionics' help to end their war against Nackle in exchange for a trip back to Earth. During the battle, they try to use their own replica of Battlenizer but failed and the entire forces died from the battle.

In episode 17, a few Pedan thugs hunted down Alien Semon Meed, who had stolen a monster-controlling device they had made. Meed went to EGIS to escort him as he knew he was being hunted down, and needed to reach his contact. The Pedans eventually caught up with him, starting a brawl between them and the EGIS members.
