Biography

Bullton (ブルトン Buruton)[1] is a meteorite-like creature that can manipulate reality. It first appeared in episode 17 of the TV series Ultraman.

Subtitle: Four-Dimensional Monster (四次元怪獣 Yojigen Kaijū)[1]

Conception

Etymology

Bullton's name comes from the katakana for the French surrealist poet André Breton, who had died a few weeks before the episode's airing. Breton was also part of the Dadaism art movement which helped inspire the design of the Dada aliens.

Design

According to Tohl Narita, he designed Bullton to be a 'moving abstract form' and also based it on a sea anemone.

History

Ultraman

First arriving as two small meteor fragments, one red and one blue, the fragments possessed reality-altering capabilities and thus were studied further by the Science Patrol scientists for further examination of this new power. After some accidents took place involving its warping abilities with the scientists, the fragments were placed together and locked up avoid any further problems within the Science Patrol's HQ. A mistake that would only worsen the problem.

Now together, the fragments combined and created the giant Bullton creature from within the HQ. Once free, Bullton used its warping powers to meddle with the Science Patrol's affairs, trapping everyone in the 4th dimension, with the exception of Fuji and Hoshino, whom were outside at the moment. Fuji called for backup into the form of Japan's Self Defense Force to battle the creature, but Bullton used its reality warping abilities to swap vehicles from their positions (tanks in the air and jets on the ground.) While the SDF couldn't do anything to harm Bullton, they did manage to lead Bullton away from the Science Patrol's HQ, allowing Hayata to transform into Ultraman to battle with the creature instead.

However, once in combat Bullton used its warping capabilities to confuse and outsmart Ultraman from harming it, eventually trapping the hero underground. Ultraman however fought back and after resurfacing, created his own temporal-spatial rips and tears, which damaged Bullton's antennae, stunning the creature. With the opportunity, Ultraman fired two Spacium Beams at the object, reducing it to a tiny and weaker rock, which was crushed shortly after by Ultraman.

Trivia

Symbol at bottom right

  • A symbol was seen in a Fourth Dimension landscape that appeared from behind a door when the scientists attempted to escape. The design was taken from one of Tohl Narita's artworks.
  • Originally during Ultraman vs. Bullton, Bullton was to run over Ultraman in battle, but the scene was cut due to its complexity. The scene would later be constructed for Bullton's final attack in Ultraman Fighting Evolution Rebirth, and finally carried out on-screen by Bullton in episode 14 of Ultraman Z, Four-Dimensional Capriccio.
  • In real life, Ilinden in Yugoslavia's Spomenik Monuments coincidentally resembles Bullton.

Ultra Galaxy Mega Monster Battle

Bullton appeared long ago on Planet Boris as two fragments which were found by human research scientists, who took them back to their lab at Belargo City for further study. The fragments soon combine and take its true form, and uses its time and space bending abilities to summon forth multiple giant monsters from across time and space. Resulting in mass destruction and deaths of many human colonists on the planet, turning it into a barren wasteland.

Sometime afterwards, the ZAP SPACY arrives at this location and disturb Bullton from an underground resting place, who then summoned the monster Froguros in an attempt to rid the intruders. Frogros was quickly destroyed by Litra, forcing Bullton itself to appear and attack them itself. Rei then summons Gomora to battle Bullton, but Bullton retaliated by resurrecting the previously killed Red King, Telesdon, and Neronga to battle Gomora. Despite outnumbering Gomora, Bullton and his monster soldiers were destroyed, thanks to Telesdon's misfire. The Stone Which Calls Monsters

Bullton's Kaiju Card was used by Mulnau to send Gai Kurenai to where Sadeath was. It was also used on the SSP members and Ittetsu Shibukawa when they trespassed into her mansion-looking spaceship.

Ultraman Z

A Bullton was swallowed by Genegarg while it was being pursued by Ultraman Zero for swallowing several Ultra Medals. After Genegarg threw up a meteorite on Ultraman Z, he threw up Bullton towards Zero. Zero, thinking it was just another meteorite, tried to deflect it, but it instead warped him into its pocket dimension in which the Ultra slowly losing his strength. Chant My Name!The Man Returns! Although Zero escaped using Shining Zero to reverse time, what happened to Bullton after that was unknown. His Majesty's Medal

Bullton later appeared under the ownership of Shinya Kaburagi, who put its two pieces together and used its Four-Dimensional Willpower and Four-Dimensional Phenomena abilities to wreak havoc on the STORAGE HQ. After some time, Bullton was sent to attack a nearby city, but was confronted by King Joe STORAGE Custom, but the robot was little match for the rock-like creature. Fortunately, Z arrived on the scene, and began a counterattack, but Bullton trapped him in the ground and rolled over the Ultra's head several times, being stopped only by King Joe's intervention, giving Z enough time to escape and transform into his Beta Smash form. After crippling Bullton's warping powers by ripping out its feelers and impaling it with the Z Lance Arrow, Z hurled Bullton into the air and destroyed it with the M78 Style Shining Tornado Slash, seemingly for good this time. Four-Dimensional Capriccio

After Bullton’s defeat, a rift in space was left behind, allowing Greeza to materialise and attack Earth. It was theorised that beings capable of manipulating the fabric of space and time like Bullton were required for the universe to maintain its integrity, and that the rift needed to be repaired to stop Greeza’s attack.
