"So the secret of your strength lies with having good allies? I lost, Ultraman Dyna. Farewell."

―Gregore, Fight! Dyna vs. Dyna.

Gregore (グレゴール人 Guregōru Jin lit. Gregore Man) is a polymorphic alien fighter who traveled the universe seeking opponents to challenge to a battle to prove his strength. Arriving on Earth, Gregore challenged Ultraman Dyna to solidify his reputation and see who was the better fighter but lost the ensuing duel. After accepting his loss in a dignified manner, Gregore returned to space to continue his journey.

Conception

Gregore's Blitz Ring is designed by the art director Yuji Terai to be based on a sword, despite the original script intended them to be stone pillars.

The origin for Imit-Dyna's Miracle Type was ambiguous; in the 1998 special editing magazine, it was said to be a newly modeled suit specifically for suit actor Kazuya Shimizu, hence it was later modified into the real Dyna's Miracle Type suit in later appearances. Character designer Hiroshi Maruyama in his photobook contradicted this claim by stating that the suit was made from modifying an existing suit.

History

Ultraman Dyna

Gregore was an alien from the Hercules M16 Nebula, known to teleport all around the known universe seeking powerful entities to defeat. Eventually, he wandered to Earth; seeking to challenge Dyna. He released a Mons-Ahgar II and defeated it before Asuka to prove his strength. Gregore forces Asuka to accept his challenge; threatening to unleash more space monsters if their match were to be refused. Although faster and more powerful, Imit-Ultraman Dyna was finally defeated after getting in a Cross Counter Punch with Dyna in Strong Type and getting his face smashed in half with the Cross Counter Punch. After the duel, Gregore admitted defeat graciously, and, acknowledging Dyna's strength, departed Earth and returned to space.

Trivia

  • Actor: Hiroshi Miyasaka (Human form and speaking voice)
    • Hiroshi Miyasaka would later on portray Ginga Yumeboshi, the host of the eponymous Ultraman Nice, which makes it an ironic casting choice to his previous role as Gregore.
  • Suit actor: Tomoharu Nishizawa, Kazuya Shimizu (Imit-Dyna)
  • In contrast to previous aliens who impersonated Ultras as means of tarnishing the original's reputation, Gregore is an anti-villain who only wanted to fight Ultraman Dyna for the thrill of a battle, and that his impersonation is to prevent from being mistaken as an enemy. However, he was willing to attack the civilians if they interfered with him.
  • Gregore's transformation pose when turning into Imit-Ultraman Dyna is reminiscent of the way Hideki Go transforms into Ultraman Jack, by raising his hand in the air.
  • He, along with Mons-Ahgar II, was referenced by the Spark Dolls Troupe in episode 37 of New Ultraman Retsuden.

Stats
  • Height: 55 m
  • Weight: 47,000 t
  • Origin: Planet Hercules M16
Powers and Weapons
  • Dimensional Portal: Gregore can summon a pro-wrestling ring, camera saucer and Mons-Ahgar II.
  • Blitz Ring (電撃リング Dengeki Ringu): Gregore can summon a pro-wrestling ring formed by four swords. True to its name, the ring is covered with electricity to ensure that the contestants would not escape in his deathmatch.
  • Shape-shifting: Gregol-Man can transform, changing his appearances either a human form or Imit-Ultraman Dyna form. Dyna Strong Type's punch is strong enough to shatter the disguise.

Imit-Ultraman Dyna (ニセウルトラマンダイナ Nise Urutoraman Daina) is the form Gregore took to impersonate the Ultra during his arrival on Earth. In against Mons-Ahgar II, he took a form resembling Flash Type, which is nigh-identical to the real one, save for the black shading around his eyes and his curled feet.

While fighting the real Dyna, Gregore sticks to having his disguise resembling Miracle Type, which is differentiated from the real Dyna's Miracle Type by the slight shading around its eyes, pointed feet, and additional black and gold accents on its body, all of which are absent from the template's appearance.
