Ultra Q

Gomess 1

Gomess was a kaiju who, in ancient times, was the predator of the kaiju Litra. In the present day, he was disturbed from his hibernation by a group of miners. He attacks the mining site where he was awakened. However, a Litra was hatching from her egg and engaged Gomess in battle. Gomess is killed by Litra's Citronella Acid attack. However, this cost Litra her life as well and both monsters died together.


  • Gomess is infamously known for being created from a loosely disguised Godzilla suit. Around the time of Toho's film, Mothra vs. Godzilla. Eiji Tsuburaya was beginning his work on the show, Ultra Q, and during the time of Ghidorah, the Three-Headed Monster, a new Godzilla suit was to be used for the film. However when Tsuburaya pleaded with Toho Studios to use the suit, the MosuGoji suit was reused for the film instead. Once filming for episode 1 of Ultra Q was finished, the Godzilla suit that was used to make Gomess would later be given back to Toho Studios to create the film Invasion of Astro Monster.
  • In episode 18, Gomess was intended to return. But due to filming of Invasion of Astro Monster, Toho lent the Baragon suit to Tsuburaya and Pagos was created instead.
  • Gomess has some of the many firsts in the Ultra Series, including:
    • Gomess is one of the two very first monsters in the Ultra series, the other goes to Litra itself.
    • Being the first monster to appear from underground.
    • First monster to fight another monster.
    • First kaiju to actually die on screen.

Alien Guts' Gomess

Gomess appeared in this series as a bigger variation of its species, called Gomess (S) (ゴメス(S) Gomesu (Esu)).[6]

When the ZAP SPACY's ship, the Pendragon, crashes on the desert planet Hammer, Gomess is the first monster to appear. Magular also appears and does battle against Gomess, but Gomess easily overpowers Magular until he turns his attention to the Pendragon. Rei sends out Gomora to battle the two kaiju and manages to destroy Magular. Gomess was revealed to be a Battlenizer monster and was called back by his unseen master before Gomora could finish him off. Gomess reappeared in the next episode when Rei used Litra to search for Alien Hook. This time, his master, Alien Guts appeared. After a battle with Gomora and Litra, Gomess was destroyed and Guts fled the scene.


  • This series is Gomess's first appearance in color.
  • In this series due to the more staggering sizes of the other monsters, Gomess's size is boosted to 40 meters rather than his original 10 meters. To differentiate from this previous appearance in Ultra Q, this incarnation of Gomess is referred to as "Gomess (S)" (the "S" denotation equals Special (スペシャル Supesharu)) by Tsuburaya.
  • During the opening credits to the series, Gomess is seen battling Arstron, even though neither monster fought or met each other in the series.
  • During the Daikaiju files at the end of the show it is stated that Gomess is a mammal.

Mega Monster Battle: Ultra Galaxy Legends The Movie


Gomess (S) in Mega Monster Battle: Ultra Galaxy Legends The Movie

Gomess (S) was revived by in the movie by Ultraman Belial as part of his 100 Monster Army He was first seen as a spirit in a shot of the Monster Graveyard along with Alien Reflect and Eleking. He was then seen rising out of the ground along with Alien Baltan, Verokron, King Joe Black, Nova, and Antlar. He teamed up with Alien Baltan, Antlar, Magular, Zetton, Arigera, Gudon, Twin Tail, Guesra, Silvergon, and Goldras to take on Ultraman. He was betrayed and killed along with Alien Baltan by Ultraman Belial's Belial Geno Thunder during the final battle. Gomess later became one of the monsters to make up Beryudora's neck.


  • This film features Gomess' first battle against an Ultraman after 44 years from its debut.

Ultraman Saga


Gomess (S) in Ultraman Saga

Gomess (as well as Arstron and Gubila) is one of the monsters who has been revived by Alien Bat to serve him. Gomess works alongside Gubila and double teams Ultraman Cosmos. Shortly into the fight, Ultraman Zero (whom was only 5 meters tall,) shows up and evens the odds by battling Gomess (S). Despite his smaller size, Zero is strong enough to hold off Gomess (S) long enough for Ultraman Cosmos to calm down Gomess with the Full Moon Rect, turning the monster good. However, Gomess (S) was tragically murdered by Alien Bat for his failure.


  • According to the film's director, Hideki Oka, Gomess's introduction scene of him rising out of the ground is a tribute to the film, Mothra vs. Godzilla. Hideki Oka acknowledged that he is aware that the original Gomess' suit was originally created from the Godzilla suit.[7]

Ultraman Ginga

Gomess participated in the Dark Spark War fighting alongside various monsters against Ultras until he was turned into a Spark Doll by Dark Lugiel.

It is likely that he returned to space in his original form after Ultraman Ginga defeated Dark Lugiel.

Ultraman X

X vs. Gomess (S)

X vs Gomess (S)

Gomess (S) reappeared in Ultraman X episode 15. Like the other monsters, it can be assumed that he was turned back to normal after his Spark Doll was completely restored by the Ultra Flare event.

It first appeared at 4:13 in the morning, burrowing out of the ground and causing destruction to a local village until it burrowed back underground and caused local earthquakes as it moved underground until it arrived in Area S2-6.

Once there, he started to rampage again, but this time, he had opposition from Xio but their attacks couldn't hurt the monster and decided to retreat when Daichi transformed into Ultraman X. They both fought well until Gomess (S)'s strength gained the advantage causing X to use his Cyber Bemstar armor. He threw his shield at Gomess (S) causing him to flinch and decided to retreat and dug back underground before X could finish him off with the Xanadium Ray.

He stayed inactive for a while until he was struck by the Dark Thunder Energy and sported red eyes, in a similar fashion to Tsurugi Demaaga and was meet by Xio and Ultraman X in opposition again and this time he used his new abilities to gain the upper hand against them until the Xio captain, Shotaro Kamiki, realized Cyber Gomora to help out X and gains the advantage over Gomess by using his combat skills to let Cyber Gomora fight at close combat with him. Unfortunately, he ended up losing but wasn't about to give up when X transformed into his Exceed X form and double teamed Gomess (S).

Gomess (S) ultimately lost when X used his Exceed X Slash on the monster, relinquishing the Dark Thunder Energy from within his body, Cyber Gomora launched him into the air with his Cyber Super Oscillatory Wave and X turned him into a Spark Doll with his Xanadium Ray. A Soldier's Back

In the final episode of Ultraman X, after Greeza destroyed the Xio base, Gomess' Spark Doll was absorbed by Greeza. After speaking out to Gomora and striking Greeza right in the center of his chest, Gomess, along with all of the other Spark Dolls, traveled to X and united with him. Cyber Gomess' power was used to help form the Hybrid Armor and power up the Ultimate Xanadium to defeat Greeza once and for all. Gomess, along with the numerous other Cyber Cards and Spark Dolls, then appeared and thanked Daichi as he thanked them.The Rainbow Land


  • Gomess (S) appeared in the episode released on November 3. His appearance in this episode is a tribute to Godzilla, whom celebrated its birthday also on November 3, since the first Gomess suit was modified from Godzilla.[8]
  • As a reference to Godzilla, Gomess uses a radioactive beam attack similar to Godzilla's Atomic Breath after being afflicted by Dark Thunder Energy.
    • Coincidentally, Gomess's roars while afflicted are reused from Jirass, another monster made by reusing Godzilla suits.
  • Despite its gigantic size, it was called Gomess in the series, dropping out the (S) distinction.
  • In the original planning, Gomess (S) was planned to travel around the world but was reduced to Japan due to the location constraints.[9]

Ultraman Orb

Gomess appeared in episode 24 of Ultraman Orb, where he, alongside Demaaga and Telesdon, rose from underneath Tokyo, but before they could attack, Ultraman Orb appeared in his Hurricane Slash form. However, as he said his catchphrase and the three monsters gathered to start the fight, all three of them suddenly fell to the ground, dead. Orb could only stare at the massacred monsters as he was saddened by their deaths.


  • According to Kiyotaka Taguchi via his Twitter account, Gomess (S), Demaaga and Telesdon were all chosen due to their past appearance in Ultraman X. The reason for their deaths were due to Magata no Orochi eating the ground's nutrients and their energies but once surfaces due to the disturbance, they passed away due to energy depletion.[10]

Ultraman R/B


Gomess appeared in episode 10 of Ultraman R/B. He was first seen fighting Ultraman Blu in the city and when the former knocked down the latter, Ultraman Rosso appeared in his Wind form to save him, but the kaiju's brute strength was too much for the Ultra, causing his Color Timer to flash.

Seeing his brother in trouble, Blu transformed into his Ground form for the first time and held the upper hand against Gomess. When his Color Timer began to flash, Blu used his Earth Bringer attack on the kaiju and Rosso, using the Orb Ring NEO, destroyed Gomess with his Sperion Ray.
