Darrgon (ダーゴン Dāgon) is one of the Giants of Darkness and one of the main antagonists in Ultraman Trigger: New Generation Tiga. He fights using his great strength, and considers Trigger to be his worthy opponent. Despite his battle-hardened appearance and fearsome armour, Darrgon has aspects of his personality which contrast his nature as an antagonist, such as his strong sense of honour and respect for those brave enough to challenge him.

Darrgon values his brute strength above all else as his sole means of fighting with a great deal of pride, and enjoys fighting for his amusement. Despite his incredible strength, he has a sense of honor about him, as he adheres to fair play during combat and detests cowardly tactics. Darrgon's sense of honor is not limited to fighting Ultras, as he finds the nature of human strength to be interesting, and values the humans who are brave enough to face him in combat in spite of the substantial difference in strength between them.
Ultraman Trigger: New Generation Tiga
Darrgon, with the other Giants of Darkness, arrived on Earth 30 million years ago to locate the Eternity Core, fighting against Yuzare directly or by controlling Dark Monsters. Trigger Dark captured Yuzare and used her to open the gate towards the Eternity Core, allowing the other Giants of Darkness to enter. However, Kengo Manaka convinced Trigger Dark to turn to the light, becoming Ultraman Trigger, who fought the Giants of Darkness with the help of Yuzare and the power of the Eternity Core. They were petrified into stone statues, placed at the opposite end of the universe.
In the present day, Darrgon was found by Carmeara, who reawakened him after he landed somewhere upside down. Darrgon immediately went to Earth to fight against Trigger after he had just defeated Gymaira but, now weakened, Trigger stood no chance against him and disappeared. Darrgon returned later at night, destroying the city to lure out Trigger. Having received the Power Type Hyper Key from Akito Hijiri, Kengo Manaka made use of Trigger's new power to fight against Darrgon. Bringing their battle underwater as they clashed, Trigger drove Darrgon away after the battle. Carmeara and Darrgon then went to pick up Hudram after his fight with Trigger, having to restrain him in the process. With the three Giants of Darkness reunited, they continued their quest to find the Eternity Core.
While Deathdrago attacked, Darrgon went after Yuna Shizuma, seeking to awaken Yuzare's spirit within her. After Darrgon pursued Yuna through a basement, Akito arrived to assist her, but their combined efforts were not enough to drive Darrgon away. Darrgon threw Akito into a pile of boxes before being slapped by Yuna, and left after being impressed by what she had done. Now alone, Darrgon contemplated the nature of the "human spirit" that he had seen.
Continuing to ponder the nature of the human spirit, Darrgon attempted to continue his efforts at awakening Yuzare within Yuna, this time through the emotion of love. When he was rebuffed, Darrgon grew furious, and the vibrations given off by his body inadvertently awoke the monster Zaragas from his slumber beneath the Earth. In a surprising twist of fate, Darrgon later intervened to assist Trigger in the final moments of the battle that followed, restraining Zaragas with a single finger. He then threw the monster towards his rival, who swiftly destroyed it with his Deracium Light Stream.
After repeated monster attacks, Carmeara decided to attack Trigger directly, managing to perform her Curse of Darkness on him that turned him back into Trigger Dark. However, after his ordeal in the past, Kengo returned to the future, causing the Giants of Darkness to somehow remember that he was the one who turned Trigger to the light in the first place. The Giants of Darkness attack Kengo, now transformed into Ultraman Trigger, and had the upper hand until Yuzare's spirit emerged from within Yuna and granted Trigger a fragment of the Eternity Core, allowing him to transform into Glitter Trigger Eternity. He forced the Giants of Darkness to retreat after firing his Glitter Zeperion Beam at them, and then finished off Trigger Dark.
