Great Decisive Battle! The Super 8 Ultra Brothers
With all of the King Monsters now destroyed by the Ultra Brothers, the combined number of Black Silhouette around the city summoned the souls of all 5 King Monsters and combined them into a towering monstrosity that was Giga Khimaira. Tiga, Dyna, and Gaia, being the only ultras around to fight, tried to battle the towering monster. However, the Giga Khimaira simply swatted away the Ultra trio and bombarded them with their fireballs. However, touched by the 3 ultra undying spirit to protect the ones they love, Hayata, Dan, Goh, and Hokuto, transformed into their respective Ultra forms: Ultraman, Ultraseven, Jack, and Ace. Shortly after releasing the imprisoned Ultraman Mebius. All 8 Ultra Brothers converged to battle Giga Khimaira as one. Unable to stop the 8 Ultras, Giga Khimaira fired its Disaster Burst at the group, only to have its ray reflected back at him, mortally wounding the monster. Outnumbered and weakened, Giga Khimaira tried to flea the planet but was futilely pursued by the Ultra Brothers and was weakened even further by Ultraseven's Eye Slugger. Finally, the 8 Ultra Brothers destroyed the monster by firing their signature beams simultaneously at the monster destroying it in a magnificent explosion in the Earth's atmosphere.
- Originally, Giga Khimaira was completely different from what its current appearance is now. It was to be shaped like a centaur and composed of a different cast of monsters who were to appear in the film instead of the current cast. The monsters that were going to make up this Giga Khimaira were to be Vakishim, Twin Tail, Astromons, Tyrant, Monsarger, Eleking, Red King, and Gomora, and given the name Grand Tyrant (グランドタイラント Gurando Tairanto). It is be possible that the reason it was rejected was due to the combination being complicated.
- Originally Giga Khimaira was not going to have its current name. Instead was to have the name Ultizaura (アルティザウラー Arutizaurā) but was given the name "Giga Khimaira" by the public as a name suggestion from Tsuburaya.
- Due to Giga Khimaira's name confusion during pre-production, his name is never fully stated in the film.
- Giga Khimaira's appearance is based on the Greek mythological monsters, the Chimera and Lernaean Hydra.
- According to the original design, it was probably based on the Campe and Centaur, as it had a quadruped body but also arms.
