Geronimon (ジェロニモン Jeronimon) is a Kaiju from Ultraman, appearing in episode 37. A mysterious monster who was at one point rumoured to be the leader of all of Earth's natural monsters, Geronimon is also an extremely capable necromancer, able to revive any monster he chooses using a strange power only he has access to. Angered by Ultraman and the SSSP constantly destroying the monsters under his command, Geronimon battled Ultraman in a duel, only to be defeated himself from a combination of the hero and humankind.
Subtitle: Monster Chief (怪獣酋長 Kaijū Shūchō)
Geronimon's name comes from the Geronimo, the chief of the Chiricaha tribe of the Apache Native Americans, hence his nickname as the Monster Chief and the numerous feathers decorating his head.
Geronimon was a incredibly powerful monster who was reputed to be the leader of the Earth monsters. He was angered by the Science Patrol and Ultraman for constantly killing his monsters, so, in revenge he, revived Telesdon, Dorako, and Pigmon as a warning to the Earth. Re-Pigmon revealed that Geronimon's plan was to revive 60 more monsters in order to take over the planet and defeat Ultraman with this army of monsters.
After Telesdon and Dorako were killed by the Science Patrol (Re-Pigmon was killed by Re-Dorako), Geronimon appeared from within a mountain and attacked the Science Patrol himself. Ultraman eventually showed up, rescuing the Science Patrol and confronting the Monster Chief. Geronimon used his razor-sharp feathers to attack Ultraman and chase him into the sky, but Ultraman destroyed most of the them and then he pounced on Geronimon, restraining the monster using his knees. Ultraman then enraged Geronimon by tearing out all the feathers on his head. Geronimon tried to use his Anti-Gravity Mist on Ultraman, but the hero redirected the mist with his Ultra Barrier, lifting Geronimon into the air. Ultraman held Geronimon steady as his colour timer started to blink, and the monster was shot and killed by the Science Patrol.
