History

Ultraman Nexus

One night at a gas station, a truck pulled up to get some gas, but a strange liquid from underneath the truck began to reform and would cause problems. The liquid turned into Pedoleon Kureain (ペドレオンクライン Petoleion Kurain), the first of many Space Beasts to come to Earth, and was close to eating a gas station worker had a shot not been fired, forcing it to flee. The assailants of Pedoleon Klein were none other than the elite task force created by TLT, Night Raiders, who soon tracked the bizarre organism into a tunnel and blasted it to pieces. However, it wasn't the only member of its species to come to Earth. Another Pedoleon Klein later appeared mysteriously as it attacked a bus full of people. Kazuki Komon, an unknowing transfer member of Night Raiders, found the bus and was soon found by Pedoleon Kureain. Before the Kaiju could devour him, a fire ball from the sky destroyed the organism and the fire ball revealed itself to be a silver giant. This would be the first of many appearances of Ultraman Nexus and faded away just as Night Raiders showed up. Night Assault - Night Raid -

Night Raiders was ordered to shoot the Space Beast, but before anything was done it began to walk away. Just then, a man in black turned into Ultraman Nexus and used the Savage Belt to free Pedoleon Guros's two hostages and placed them down gently. Before the battle could start, Night Raiders member, Nagi began to open fire on Nexus. It wasn't enough to stop Nexus as he began to assault the Space beast until it began to emit gas from its back that was highly flammable and turned into Pedoleon Furigen. After Pedoleon Furigen turned into Pedoleon Furigen (ペドレオンフリーゲン Petoleion Furiken), Ultraman Nexus and Night Raiders went after the space beast by air. Nexus quickly switched from Anphans mode to Junis, and trapped Pedoleon Fliegen in the Meta Field and destroyed him. Giant - Ultraman -
