Neo Ultra Q
Puranas were parasites that consumed chemicals while living in Earth's atmosphere. Due to increase in global warming their food increased, 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. 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 gigantic fauna which was celebrated across Japan.

A Purana was seen as one of the test subjects of Mabuze's experiments to create the ultimate creature.

- Chemical Consumption: Puranas can consume toxic chemicals up to a month without any negative side effects. Once they grow large enough they will explode, upon which they release electricity and spawn giant plants.
