Deep within the heart of the Amazon rainforests, an alien force of humanoid plant creatures gathered. Countless ages on Earth, they fed on the blood of human beings and posed as their victims, hid among the humans and destroyed their defenses. One scientist, Dr. Gotoh, that discovered the Keronia, was able to research them before falling to the lethal monsters. When Dr. Gotoh returned to Japan from his adventures in the jungle, it was not the man that left, but an agent of the Keronia. Infiltrating the SSSP, the plant-man began to spread mushroom-like growths all over the city, preparing for his people's invasion of the Earth.
However, as his goals were being met, the forces of good began to catch on, and soon Dr. Gotoh’s disguise was lifted. He was revealed to be the vile Keronia, but escaped the SSSP. The invader quickly grew to a gigantic size as his invasion force arrived, blotting out the skies with high-tech war machines.
The Earth fought back, throwing tanks against the invasion force. Keronia, however, aided its army and fired back with its energy beams, demolishing numerous tanks until Shin Hayata summoned Ultraman. The Ultra Warrior battled the fiendish plant being, keeping the attacker at bay.
Keronia put up a fight against the red and silver giant but Ultraman proved the stronger. Soon the plant was downed but Ultraman was unable to destroy it with his Specium Ray, so he unleashed his most powerful attack, the Ultra-Attack Ray. Upon impact Keronia was completely destroyed in a huge fireball. With their inside man down, the invading Keronia forces were at a total loss and were at the mercy of Ultraman, and the hero finished the fight. With swiftness, Ultraman decimated the invasion force.

As their fight went on, the two kaiju spent their time grabbing hold of each other and throwing them down and it went on for quite a while.

Even though the kaiju held the advantage in numbers, the Ultra didn't waver as usual and held his own against the two of them.

- Keronia reappeared in episode 124, where he went up against Seabozu and did his best to keep up with his opponent in the beginning, but later on, he proved to be no match for Seabozu, who finished him off by pushing him over after grappling him for quite a while and then socked him in the face, knocking him out.
