Ultraman Tiga

Gobnu Vaha

What it is of the Gobnu (Vaha) before their invasion of Tokyo was unknown, but certain facts indicate that they were created by the Kyrieloid to keep humans away from finding out the immeasurable powers of the Maxima Overdrive, a matter-antimatter powered device which gave off pure light as a waste product. After the technology was developed, the Vaha were dispatched to Earth, where they stalked the streets of Tokyo at night. After countless reports of the "Iron Masks", GUTS was sent to investigate and soon found a single Vaha walking across the street. After Shinjo shot the robot with the Hyper Gun, it was discovered that it was hollow inside. Soon, TPC began to collect the remains of the discovered Vaha and keep them in the GUTS base. Once there, they came in contact with the Maxima Overdrive power when the new super-ship, Artdessi, was activated. They soon revived and attacked the base. The GUTS members were ordered to board the Artdessi while Daigo fended off the Vaha, keeping them at bay until the Artdessi lifted off. In order to pursue, the Vaha combined themselves into the powerful Gobnu (Giga). Later, when Gobunyu (Ogma) was destroyed, the Vaha and the Mechanical Island was destroyed along with Ogma.

Gobnu Giga


Giga arise

Shortly after the Artdessi lifted off, the Gobnu Vaha began to pursuit by first smashing a hole in the float tank of the GUTS Base, then combining into Gobnu Giga after landing in the ocean. As the basement began to flood, Daigo transformed into Ultraman Tiga to prevent Giga from pursuit. However, even in Power Type, Giga's strength still proved superior to Tiga's. The battle turned to worse as the water heavily slowed down Tiga, who was already extremely slow for being in Power Type, while Giga still maintained a constant speed. Soon, Giga knocked Tiga over and held him to his chest. Suddenly, the lights on his head began to blink and go off, signaling his time bomb. Tiga, helpless with his color timer already red, struggled with the last of his strength to kick off Giga's right leg. He then lifted Giga into the air and threw him well out of Earth's atmosphere, allowing Giga to explode. However, this battle will cost Tiga, as he then disappeared. Later, the robot's component was brought to Dive Hangar for research.

Gobnu Ogma

After the Artdessi landed on the Mechanical Island, a hole appeared and trapped them in. Meanwhile, Daigo landed as well using the Snow White and tried to contact them, but the usage of the Maxima Overdrive on his trip aroused Gobnu Ogma. Daigo quickly transformed, but even then, Ogma outclassed Tiga using electro blasts and began to torture him. The GUTS crew then unleashed their Maxima Overdrive on reverse to escape the island and unleashed their Dellaku Cannon on the robot while Tiga used his Zepellion Ray on the island, destroying both threats.

  • The name Gobnu comes from Irish Mythology Gobunyu. Gobunyu was the son of the sun goddess Danu and god of blacksmiths and technology.
    • Oguma was Gobunyu's brother and god of eloquence and inspiration.
  • Although not appearing in the movie, Gobnu Ogma (along with Geo Shark, Kyrieloid, and Bizaamo) appears in Daigo's flashback in Ultraman Tiga: The Final Odyssey.
  • The pattern on Ogma's head in fact is the director's name (ムライシ).
