Cotton-Poppe was the weapon and bodyguard of Alien Benzene in his plan to kill Ultraman Zearth and to steal all of Earth's Gold in order to cure his illness. Cotton-Poppe's presence was felt all over the Earth by several different countries as he consumed mass quantites of them with his tongue. MYDO set up a trap to try and stop the monster from one of its gold raids, but ultimately was taken down by the monster's spike lightning and Cotton-Poppe again fed on more gold. One night while MYDO was investigating, they found the monster transfer its gold contents as energy waves to his master, but it was only just enough to temporarily cure Alien Benzene of his illness and so he sent Cotton-Poppe to begin phase 2 of his plan.
After abducting a few friends of Katsuto Asahi (Ultraman Zearth's human form), Alien Benzene and Cotton-Poppe surrounded them on a rock-like formation as a trap for Ultraman Zearth to come and save them. MYDO was on the scene to rescue the group first, but again they were taken out of commission by Cotton-Poppe. Once Ultraman Zearth arrived, Alien Benzene created a tarpit surrounding his friends while Cotton-Poppe threatened to strike them with his lightning. Once Ultraman Zearth gained control of his fears, he freed his friends from the tarpit and battled with Cotton-Poppe. As it seemed Zearth was winning, Alien Benzene emerged and assisted the monster in beating up the Ultra. Zearth however wouldn't give up and after striking the monster in the gut with his Zearth Knee Kick, Cotton-Poppe collapsed, unable to continue fighting. After Zearth defeated Alien Benzene, he took Cotton-Poppe's body into space, where he destroy it with his Speshusshura Ray, where it exploded safety without harming the Earth.
