Darantulas (ダランチュラス Daranshurasu) was a monster that appeared in The☆Ultraman.
Subtitle: Freezing Monster (氷結怪獣 Hyōketsu Kaijū)
A blizzard had hit the Japanese countryside for an extended period of time with temperatures becoming so low that people started to become frozen solid even in their own trucks. The Scientific Defense Guard decided to investigate the weather phenomenon upon hearing reports of a snow woman. During the investigation Choichi heard something from the nearby wilderness and followed it to a chasm. From that chasm emerged a giant spider-like monster named Darantulas. Before Darantulas could kill Choichi a wolf showed him an entrance to an ice cave where he escaped and found a flying saucer stuck in the ice. Choichi was lead into the saucer by the wolf and met the mysterious snow woman in the reports. It was then that she explained to Choichi that Darantulas was an out of control laboratory experiment originally mutated by the energy system designed to regulate the temperatures of her desert home world. Darantulas went out of control and killed her father, but not before he told her that Darantulas could be defeated if she gave Ultraman the Super Magma capsule to stop the monster. Just as Choichi agreed to help her, Darantulas attacked with the Scientific Defense Guard arriving on the scene to fight it. After the Scientific Defense Guard was overwhelmed, Choichi turned into Ultraman Joneus to fight Darantulas. Despite Darantulas being able to overwhelm Joneus with its freezing powers, once the sun was out the hero was able to replenish his energy with the Super Magma device the snow woman gave him and soon managed to get the upper hand on the giant flying spider. After Joneus executed a powerful toss he finished Darantulas with the Planium Ray.
