Gango (ギャンゴ Gyango) is an ephemeral Kaiju created by the Wishing Stone It disappeared after the human who invented it willed it out of existence, and Ultraman carried the wishing stone away where it could be kept safe from others who would use its incredible powers to wreak havoc.
Subtitle: Brain Wave Monster (脳波怪獣 Nōha Kaijū)
Originally a small space rock capable of granting any wish, Gango was created after a criminal got his hands on the space rock. Wanting the rock to do his dirty work, the thief wished for a Kaiju to do his bidding, creating Gango. After using Gango to scare people for his enjoyment, the criminal wished for Gango to grow to a gigantic size, and that it did! The Kaiju smashed through the walls and ceiling, causing the structure to collapse and unintentionally injuring the man, sending him into a coma. With the criminal unable to tell the Kaiju to stop, Gango began a relentless assault!
It was met by the SDF and the Science Patrol, but all their weapons could do was sever one of its radar-like ears, which sent Gango in an enraged frenzy. Finally Shin Hayata transformed into Ultraman, to stop the kaiju, but Gango's cowardly nature took the "fight" long enough for Ultraman to weaken. As it saw that Ultraman was running out a time, the criminal awoke from his coma. Seeing what his creation was doing, he wished the creature away. The towering Kaiju turned back into the softball-sized space rock and was gathered by Ultraman and taken back into space.
- Suit actor: Teruo Aragaki (新垣輝雄 Aragaki Teruo).
- Gango's suit is a modified Bemular suit.
- Gango's screeching (as well as Red King's, briefly) are re-used as dragon roars at the climax of the 1998 anime film, Crimson Wolf.
- Gango's name originates from the English word "Gang", which recaps the fact that Gango's rock was stolen by a gangster.
- Although not physically seen in the film, Gango is one of the Kaiju that makes up Belyudra's right horn in Mega Monster Battle: Ultra Galaxy Legends The Movie. This does not make sense, as Gango never actually died; he was simply reverted back to the Wishing Stone.
- The Kaiju Encyclopedia on the Ultraman complete collection DVD says that Gango can summon any type of metal with his claws, but this never happens.
- On July 21, 2011, Gango and Ultraman Taro were featured in a PSA about helping others in need to support the flood victims of March 2011. This PSA can be viewed here. Gango and Taro fight, but midway Gango starts gesturing towards his leg, before continuing to attempt to battle Taro. Taro realizes Gango has a branch stuck in his foot like a thorn. Eventually, Gango falls down, giving Taro a chance to remove the branch and heal Gango's injured foot, calming the Kaiju. Gango, thankful for Taro's intervention, thanks Taro as Mother of Ultra and Father of Ultra watch.
- Gango's ghost is seen in the monster graveyard in episode 35.
- Gango uses Gamera's roars, reversed, slightly sped up, and slightly modified. His roar was also reused for the monster, Telesdon.
- In an episode of the original Powerpuff Girls series, monsters that bear similarities to Gango and King Ghidorah attack the city.
It is likely that he returned to space in his original form after Ultraman Ginga defeated Dark Lugiel.
Ultraman Orb Chronicle Chapter 3: 'The Man Who Stole The Black Hole' Arc
Gango was a monster which Biranki summoned via her brain waves to destroy an alien city, resulting in her imprisonment in Planet 484 in the first place.
