30 million years ago, Darramb existed as one of the Ancient Giants of Light that existed during the time of the Ultra-Ancient Civilization at R'lyeh. However, he, Camearra, Hudra and Tiga found a great power of "darkness" within their hearts and became Giants of Darkness, who used their powers for evil and began to destroy the world amidst a civil war between the Ancient Giants. Eventually, Yuzare somehow convinced Tiga to follow the path of light again, betraying his former comrades. Tiga defeated the three Giants of Darkness and took their powers, gaining his Type Changes, and sealed them as stone statues in the R'lyeh ruins. From Darramb's dark energy converted to light, Tiga gained his Power Type.
Ultraman Tiga: The Final Odyssey
Trapped in stone as 30 million years passed, Gatanothor's war with Ultraman Tiga would reveal the location of their ancient tomb to mankind, soon resulting in an exploration discovering them. Soon the ancient trio awakened and began to assault those who had awakened them, Darramb throwing a column at the humans. It was then the duo plunged their fists into the cave walls, awakening the army of Shibito-Zoiger on the area. However, Yuzare, a spirit of the ancient civilization appeared and sealed the island in a pyramid of light, stopping the Giants of Darkness and there army from escaping. After this, Darramb and Hudra would follow their master as she made preparations for their escape from the island. However, the two males were impatient and tried to break free on their own, only to be blasted to the ground. Camearra lead her trio back into Daigo’s dreams, allowing Hudra and Darramb to blow off steam on the human before calling them off to present him with the Black Sparklence, before the trio left.
Daigo soon confronted the trio on R'lyeh, becoming Tiga Dark and breaking the barrier, letting darkness spread over the world. Hudra and Darramb transformed to confront him, and when he refused to join them, Darramb cut Hudra off to fight Tiga himself. The two giants fought and Darramb grabbed Tiga’s legs, lifting him overhead with ease before dragging him down into the Dark Water. The two giants battled but out of fear of falling into the Darkness, Tiga didn’t use his full power of darkness and was thrown like a rag doll, slammed through a building. Darramb caught Tiga as he flew at him and sent him flying into a cliff.
"Goodbye... dear, my friend."
As Tiga attempted another such move, Darramb punched him out of the air, but the overconfident Darramb was tripped by Tiga, who began to gain the upper hand. However, the ground gave way under Tiga’s feet and he sunk up to his waist, allowing Darramb to jump on him repeatedly to bury him further. With Tiga buried up to his neck, Darramb prepared to apply the finishing blow with his Fire Magnum. But when the dust cleared, Tiga stood unharmed, having converted Darramb’s attack into light energy and becoming Tiga Tornado. Darramb charged but was cut off with a blast of the Deracium Beam Torrent, striking him in the chest and destroying the first Dark Giant in a huge explosion.
