Neo Ultra Q
Puranas are a species of strange creatures that live in the atmosphere, where they consume chemicals such as carbon dioxide. Due to the increase in global warming, the Purana had a larger supply of food, naturally causing them to swell in size as they consumed many toxic chemicals from factory smokestacks. Upon their discovery, the people of Japan tolerated the Purana believing they were helping to dampen a massive heatwave, but within weeks the balloon-like parasites appeared all over cities, feasting on the abundant chemicals in the air.
Eventually the Puranas began to look crusty and hard which concerned the citizens and government alike. One day the Puranas exploded violently, leaving in their wake clean air and gigantic plants which were celebrated across Japan.
- One of the Purana props was modified into the prop of Greeza's first form.
A Purana was seen as one of the test subjects of Mabuze's experiments to create the ultimate creature. Its actual fate prior to Skull Gomora's rampage was unknown, but it was most likely that the creature fled from the scene after Hiroyuki freed most of the captives.
- Purana has seemingly been "de-modified" from its use as Greeza's first form.
