Night Assault - Night Raid - (夜襲 - ナイトレイド - Yashū - Naito Reido -) is the first episode of Ultraman Nexus.
A man drove his van to a gas station to refuel, but was shocked to see that the pump had been filling his vehicle with far more gas than it should hold. The station attendant then checked under the van, where he found a strange ooze that was rapidly growing in size. Within seconds, the ooze grew into a creature and devoured him. Hearing the attendant's screams, the van's driver ran to check and was himself attacked. However, before he could be eaten, a mysterious energy blast struck the creature and drove it away.
The blob, a Space Beast named Pedoleon Klein, fled into the night and down a street. More energy blasts hit the creature, driving it into a tunnel. Moments later, two vehicles uncloaked and landed, dispatching armed members of TLT who entered the tunnel. They pursued the creature and cornered it, quickly opening fire and killing it.
