Kaiju Medals (怪獣メダル Kaijū Medaru) are items that contain the physical essence and powers of an Ultra Kaiju. They are mostly created by the Celebro-possessed Shinya Kaburagi from reverse engineering of the Ultra Medals.
After possessing Shinya Kaburagi, Celebro uses the human's connection as a research officer to obtain monster samples from the Monster Research Center. Using the Z Riser's Fake Hero's Gate, he uses the Medal Gacher to process said sample into a Medal. During Peguila's rampage, Jugglus Juggler briefly stole Haruki's Z Riser to duplicate it with his own image. To do so, he performs a ritual that summons the Kaiju Medals of Zetton, Pandon and Maga-Orochi. How these three medals came to exist is unknown.
As time went by, Celebro processed quite a number of Medals for constant experimentation and transformations. Examples include transforming into Belial Fusion Monsters and Tri/Five King, or mutating a monster on the spot through force injection. Celebro kept them even after changing hosts, for example using Kuriyama to reassume Zeppandon against Juggler and having Yoko mutated Ultroid Zero into Destrudos. As of the alien parasite's capture, the only known Kaiju Medal to exist was the Ultraman Belial Medal in Haruki's possession (used only for the Delta Rise Claw's transformation) while the Zeppandon set in Juggler's possession remained unknown since the destruction of his Dark Z Riser.
Ultraman Trigger: Episode Z
While Zabil as Evil Trigger fought the 3 Ultramen: Trigger, Z, and Trigger Dark, the Celebro-possessed Ibra came to assist the Evil Ultra by using a Destrudos medal that he somehow had. He transformed into the Kaiju and interfered to battle Trigger Dark and Z. Destrudos gained the upper hand in the battle at first until Trigger got his Glitter Eternity form. He sliced Destrudos' chest using the Glitter Blade, which weakened the Kaiju. Z later changed into Delta Rise Claw and together with Trigger Dark fired their signature beams and destroyed Destrudos. What happened to the medal is unknown after the destruction.
The Kaiju Medals are manufactured though the use of Medal Gatcher (メダルガッチャー Medaru Gatchā) in the Fake Heroes Gate summoned by "Kaburagi". The process goes by placing the essence into the machine as Kaburagi spins the wheel for the essence to be converted into a Medal. In the case of Ultraman Belial, both his Devil Splinter and his high-purity B Factor (from Riku) are required at the same time to create a stable medal. In addition to fluids, crystallized essence such as those from Gan-Q and Reicubas are also sufficient.
On another monsters, Celebro can enhance them through the attribute of a certain Medal. For instance, he can upgrade a Telesdon into Erimaki Telesdon with Jirahs' Medal, giving the former a frilled neck similar to the Kaiju Medal it is based on. Medals that are fed to monsters however can only be used once, as they dissipated once its out of use.
In the same case as Kei Fukuide, Celebro (through his hosts) can transform into a past Belial Fusion Monster with their respective monster components and the Ultraman Belial Medal. This is also applicable to Juggler in transforming into Zeppandon using its components. With the help of the Phantom Universe, same three medals allow him to create his Dark Z Riser, provided that a normal Z Riser is used as a template. On the other hand, if Celebro or Juggler were to assume Five King, the limitation on the Z Riser's medal slot meant that they had to insert the first three set (Golza, Melba and Super C.O.V.) to assume Tri-King before entering the other two (Reicubas and Gan-Q) to complete the transformation.
When possessing Leyrah Ibra, Celebro is able to transform into a monster through the use of a single Kaiju Medal, as in Destrudos with a spherical canister.

- Zetton (x2)
- Red King
- King Joe
- Ace Killer

- For reasons yet to be revealed, Ultraman Belial's Medal falls under the Kaiju Medal line, unlike in previous years where his collectible was under the Ultra Hero line.
- The Medal Gatcher's name is based on the Gashapon machines. Like the latter, the Medal Gatcher emits a "cranking" noise when Kaburagi spins the wheel to process the Kaiju Medal.
