Monstrous Meltdown, known in Japan as Blitz Defense Strategy (電撃防衛作戦 Dengeki Bōei Sakusen), is the fifth episode of Ultraman: The Ultimate Hero.
An energy company has been tracking what they believe to be a moving underground uranium mine. Mr. Keins, the head of the company comes to WINR after one of his drivers is seemingly swallowed by the ground itself. WINR arrives at the site where the company plans to blast open the uranium mine with dynamite. However, instead of a mine, they end up bringing a giant monster called Gabora (who isn't referred by the name) to the surface. WINR manages to drive the creature back underground but it alters its course heading for a nearby nuclear facility. WINR manages to drive the creature back underground but it alters its course heading for a nearby nuclear facility. WINR makes the amazing discovery that the creature's body is radioactive and that it actually appears to consume uranium. WINR prepares to defend the nuclear facility against the creature, believing they can use uranium to lure the creature away from the plant. However, when the plan fails and it appears that the creature's attack will cause a destructive nuclear meltdown, it's up to Kai to transform into Ultraman Powered to save the day. Ultraman Powered appeared to take matters into his own hands. The battle was at a standstill until WINR exposed Gabora's weak spot: his head. Given this opportunity, Powered fired the Mega Specium Ray at the kaiju's head, destroying him.
