- Origin: Space
Hellberus was a kaiju that made its reputation for being the strongest in space. It was summoned by Kirisaki to Earth in order to lure out Ultraman Taiga. Upon being summoned, it rained down spike projectiles on Zegan and a Young Mother Zandrias, who were fighting in the city. Hellberus then used its spiked tail to impale and destroy Zegan before descending. After which it attacked Zandrias using its tail, Hell Slash and fireballs, setting ablaze the building that Hiroyuki Kudo and Baby Zandrias were in. Desperate to save the life of Baby Zandrias, Hiroyuki's wishes were heard by Ultraman Taiga, who allowed him to transform and fight against Hellberus. It was a fairly easy battle for Taiga, who managed to beat Hellberus down while blocking most of its attacks. Taiga then fired the Strium Blaster at it, but it survived. Then, using the Supreme Blaster via the Orb-let, Taiga finally finished off Hellberus and gained its ring in the process.
Hellberus returned when Kirisaki summoned it from its Kaiju Ring to stop Ultraman Fuma and Ultraman Titas from reaching Taiga, who had been corrupted by Ultraman Tregear. However, Titas, Fuma and Hiroyuki had managed to rescue Taiga from the darkness, granting him his newest form - Tri-Strium. Using the Taiga Tri Blade, Taiga finished off Hellberus using the Titas Burning Hammer.

- Hellberus's 'fight' with Zegan maybe a homage to Astromons's fight with Oil Drinker in Ultraman Taro, having a stronger than normal monster known for being dangerous, Oil Drinker in Taro and Zegan in Taiga, being easily defeated by a new arrival that the hero fights instead, Astromons in Taro and Hellberus in Taiga.
- Hellberus' design motif is based off of Sengoku-era Warlords, specifically Sanada Yukimura when donning his red armor, due to its color scheme.
