History

Ultraman Ace

Jumbo King was Yapool's strongest Terrible-Monster and final attempt to kill Ultraman Ace, created by combining the souls of the deceased Terrible-Monster: Unitang, Cowra, Mazaron Man, and Mazarius. Unleashed by Yapool (in the form of Alien Simon, and in the company of TAC). Yapool appeared with the dead Terrible-Monster and combined with them to form Jumbo King before them. TAC quickly opened fire, but Jumbo King's hide made him impervious to their assault and during the scuffle, Hokuto was injured by the Terrible-Monster. With Hokuto out of the picture, Jumbo King vanished.

Later Yapool released Jumbo King again, this time in the heart of a city. With only TAC as it's opposition, Jumbo King easily withstood their assaults and downed them all at once when they tried to ensnare him with a net. With the city leveled from his Terrible-Monster's rampage, Yapool recalled Jumbo King again. The next day Yapool unleashed Jumbo King again, this time in the city where Hokuto was hiding out in. Endangering the lives of several children, Hokuto was quick to evacuate them while TAC tried to destroy the monster with a newly crafted weapon they've created (which failed). Shortly after killing Alien Simon for revealing his true nature, Hokuto transformed into Ultraman Ace for the final time to battle against Jumbo King. Unfortunately, Jumbo King's size and durability was too much for the ultra to handle and Ace was quickly overpowered. Motivated by the words of all his friends he had made, Ace didn't give up and continued fighting. Ace then fired his Metalium Beam at Jumbo King's head, weakening the Terrible-Monster enough for Ace to use the Guillotine Shot, decapitating the Terrible-Monster and killing it. With Jumbo King dead, Yapool's reign of terror on Earth had seemingly come to an end.
