History

Ultraman Taro

A powerful walrus monster from the Arctic, Depparas grew to a great size, and traveled beneath the ground in an underground tunnel system. He soon found a way out, and arrived in Japan. There, he started feeding on Tomato Ketchup and other food items in a Japanese city.

When ZAT was called in, they unleashed all their firepower on the Kaiju with no effect. They then managed to use massive mirrors to draw the creature back to the pit it came from and then fired all of their weapons at it, successfully blowing it to smithereens, leaving little more than bloody chunks! Despite being blown to pieces, Depparas returned. Its body reformed and it attacked with a vengeance!

Now Re-Depparas appeared near the ZAT base and used its flame breath to cause chaos in the city of Ginza. With ZAT being called back to base late after watching Kotaro's boxing match, Re-Depparas used its horn to damage the ZAT base causing the base to go for a emergency takeoff and hurting Depperas. After being driven off, Depparas was confronted by Ultraman Taro. The walrus-like monster managed to impale its foe with one of its tusks, and yet Ultraman Taroh wouldn’t give. He beat the rampaging creature down and then unleashed the Strium Ray, once again blowing Depparas to pieces, but this time there would be no return. Taro then marked the monster's grave with its tusks in the shape of a cross.

  • According to Saburo Shinoda, Kotaro Higashi's actor and Ultraman Taro's first voice actor, Depparas is his favorite monster.
  • Depparas' suit will later be modified into Rindon.
  • Depparas' reforming powers, as well as his animalistic, savage fighting style after reviving are akin to that of zombies in the horror genre, who return after death but lose their personality in the process, becoming vicious predators.
