Subtitle: Beetle-type Space Monster (甲虫型宇宙怪獣 Kabutomushi-gata Uchū Kaijū)
Imprisoned in a meteor for centuries, Bugdalas emerged from the confines of its rock to feast on the life energy from people. DASH soldiers intercepted the beast, only to have their energy being sucked from them. As the humans grew weaker, Budalas grew stronger and larger. Kaito shot the beast with a special weapon and after being momentarily stunned, the insectoid escaped BASE Titan. Kaito followed Bugdalas in DASH Bird 1 but was shot down. Kaito summoned Ultraman Max and the two giants fought. With its invisibility and infared vision, Bugdalas seems to get the upper hand. However, Ultraman Max fired his Maxium Cannon at the creature, defeating it.
- Design: Ichiro Itano
- The monster's attack on DASH is in tribute to Silver Bloome's attack on MAC Base.
- Bugdalas's roar is a stock dinosaur sound.
- Height: 25 cm ~ 50 m
- Weight: 970 g ~ 35,000 t
- Origin: Unnamed meteorite
- Powers and Weapons
- Energy Waves: By energizing his wings and then flapping them at extremely fast speeds, Bugdalas can launch large waves of energy at a target when his back is turned to them. These waves can cover an opponent in small explosions and also force them back.
- Drain Ray: Bugdalas can emit a stream of energy from his mouth. When striking prey, the energy will siphon its energy, transmitting it back to Bugdalas. The more energy it absorbs, the bigger it will grow.
- Invisibility: When needed, Bugdalas can turn completely invisible to the naked eye.
- Pincers: Bugdalas has a pair of very large, crushing pincer mandibles on each side of its mouth.
