Magular (マグラー Magurā) is a burrowing, thorny devil-like kaiju that appeared on Tatara Island from the original Ultraman TV series. Unlike most kaiju in the series, he was destroyed by the SSSP instead of an Ultra Warrior. A second one appeared on the Planet Hammer, only to be destroyed by Rei's Gomora.

A monstrous subterranean behemoth thriving in the Monster Lawless Zone, Magura kept to himself, only poking his head out on occasion to witness the colossal clashes between the island's inhabitants. Magular was first seen emerging from the ground during a fight between Red King and Chandora. Frightened off by Red King, he burrowed away again and later ran into Hayata and the Captain. The monster attacked and managed to injure Hayata by knocking him down a hill and causing him to lose the Beta Capsule, but was killed by grenades that the SSSP threw at it.

- Magular was originally planned to appear in Ultraman: The Ultimate Hero in the same episode with Red King and Chandora (much like his original counterpart did,) but ultimately never appeared.
- Magular shares the same subtitles as the monsters: Telesdon and Gudon.
- Magular is the first non-Ultra Q monster to not be killed by an Ultra.
- Magular is the first kaiju to fall exclusively to the might of the Monster Fight Team, in this case, the Science Patrol.
- This episode was featured in New Ultraman Retsuden episode 131, "The Lawless Monster Zone! Fight, Ultraman!".
- In Ultraman: The Ultimate Hero, Magular's roar makes cameos in episode 3.
- Magular's roar was reused for most of the monsters in Ultraman ZOFFY: Ultra Warriors vs. the Giant Monster Army for unknown reasons.
Ultra Galaxy Mega Monster Battle: Never Ending Odyssey
Magular reappeared in the 1st episode of the series, Ultra Galaxy Mega Monster Battle: Never Ending Odyssey.
After Rei and the Pendragon's captain, Hyuga, escaped Dale's detonated explosions at a ZAP SPACY space station (using a spare fighter plane), a black hole came out of nowhere and sucked them both in, while the Pendragon was incapable of saving them. The black hole was really a wormhole that sent them crashing onto a desert planet much like Bolias. The first monster to appear was Gomess (S), alongside the monster Magular. The two battled, but it was seemingly one sided as Gomess was easily defeating Magular, until he tossed him aside and aimed for Rei and Hyuga. Rei summoned Gomora to due battle against Gomess, who could do little to save himself from Gomora's onslaughts, until Magular joined the fray. Even with two against one, Gomora easily knocked them around and destroyed Magular with the Super Oscillatory Wave, after stabbing him with his nasal horn.
- In akin to his original creation, the Neronga suit from the original Ultra Galaxy was reused for Magular's appearance in the series.
- During the opening credits to the series, Magular is seen battling Eleking, even though neither monster fought nor met each other in the series.
Mega Monster Battle: Ultra Galaxy Legends The Movie
Magular reappeared in the movie Mega Monster Battle: Ultra Galaxy Legends The Movie as one of Ultraman Belial's 100 Monster Army. He teamed up with King Silvergon, King Goldras, King Guesra, Gomess (S), Alien Baltan, Zetton, Arigera, Twin Tail, Antlar, and Gudon to take on Ultraman. He was Ultraman's first explosive kill as he flipped him over and causing him crash to the ground and explode.
- The Magular suit from the Ultra Galaxy NEO was reused for Magular's appearance in the film.
- This film marked the first actual confrontation between Ultraman and Magular as Ultraman never fought Magular in his original appearance.
- Magular is one of the monsters that makes up Beryudora's neck in the movie.
- Magular's Spark Doll can be seen in the second Ultraman Ginga: Theater Special next to Chandora's.
- Magular's attack on the Arc de Triomphe could be seen as a tribute to Baragon as the monster was meant to destroy the Paris' landmark in 1968's Destroy All Monsters. Ironically his attack was given to Gorosaurus, due to the Baragon suit being damaged from being Magular.
- Originally, one of the series' writers Kiyotaka Taguchi was hoping for Gabora to attack said place instead but was forced to use Magular since said suit was available.

Magular reappeared in the puzzle role-playing game for mobile devices, Ultraman Galaxy as a UC (Uncommon) card that you can unlock him in one of the levels in the game with a rare chance of getting Magular.
