Ultraman Tiga Gaiden: Revival of the Ancient Giant

Seen in the beginning, Mahoroba, the passing-through monster slayer had killed Kurayaminoorochi with a single slash. Later, she took the legendary blade, Yaminaginotsurugi (ヤミナギノツルギ) which was believed to be inside the monster all along that would be given to anyone whom killed the beast. At the same time, she also discovered the Bronze Spark Lens that was among the rubble.


  • Kurayaminoorochi's suit was modified to create the Mizunoeno Dragon suit.
  • Kurayaminoorochi's roar was reused from the Toho monster Rodan's roar.
  • Kurayaminoorochi's death draws from ancient Japanese Mythology, specifically the tale of Yamata no Orochi and the tale of Grasscutter. Wherein a special blade is retrieved from the corpse of the defeated dragon.
  • Despite his name technically spelled as "Eight-headed Serpent of Darkness", but only one head was shown, either due to filming or as a resemblance to the original suit's monster, Mizunoeno Dragon.
