Return of Ultraman
First spotted by Go who was patrolling in the mountains, he told his story to MAT, who were very skeptical about it. When the captain went searching the area though, Sadola appeared and attacked him. Go found him after Sadola disappeared, but Detton appeared from out of a mountainside to menace them. Sadola reappeared to fight Detton viciously, as Hideki Go transformed into Ultraman Jack. Facing two monsters simultaneously, Jack had a tough time fighting them both at first, but in the end, he destroyed Detton using the Spacium Ray and killed Sadola shortly afterwards using the Ultra Slash.
- Sadola and Detton's episode marks the first time in the Ultraman Series that more than one kaiju/seijin fought an Ultra at the same time.
- Sadola's roar is a modified Kiyla roar.
- At one point in the episode, while chasing after the captain, Sadola's face hits the camera.
- Sadola's design was intended to be more scorpion-like, thus his name was set to be Sasolar (サソラー Sasorā) after "Sasori" meaning scorpion.
- Sadola's roar would be used backwards for Geegon.
- During Taro's broadcast, the original Sadola suit was divided into 20 pieces and each became a prize for a magazine lottery.
Sadola reappeared throughout the early episodes of the series Ultraman Mebius.
In this series, there are multiple Sadolas that appear at a time. Feeding on whoever entered their territory, the Sadolas hid near a forest, concealing themselves in fog and using their extendable arms to snatch their prey. As Crew GUYS arrived to battle one Sadola, it ultimately fled the scene upon discovering Bogarl was in the area (ultimately, it was eaten by Bogarl). Later that evening another Sadola appeared in Tokyo, (this time called forth by Bogarl) where it fed on the populace in the city. As Crew GUYS were dispatched to subdue it, Mirai transformed into Ultraman Mebius and fought the monster himself. After a long battle, the Sadola was destroyed with the Mebium Shoot. However, two more Sadolas appeared in the area and double-teamed Mebius. At that moment, the two Sadolas were destroyed by a Ultra-like figure known as "Tsurugi" with his Knight Shoot (whom would later be revealed to be Ultraman Hikari).
- Sadolas would continue to appear, but only as victims to Bogarl's hunger.
Ultra Galaxy Mega Monster Battle
Sadoras reappeared throughout the series Ultra Galaxy Mega Monster Battle.
In this series, Sadolas appear as herds of monsters that inhabit the planet (more than any other monster that also appears at least.) Its first appearance was when one fought against a Telesdon that appeared from underground. As the two monsters were fighting, a Red King suddenly appeared and ambushed the two monsters, killing the Sadola by strangling it to death.
Their last appearances were when a group of five Sadolas appeared before the ZAP SPACY during a battle between Kate's Gan-Q and Rei's Gomora. However they were easily destroyed by the ZAP SPACY's missiles. It is likely that more Sadola inhabited Planet Boris, but were eventually wiped out when a satellite collided with the planet, destroying it.
- Telesdon and Sadola's battle in the beginning was to pay homage to "their" battle in Return of Ultraman (Telesdon being similar to Detton).
- During the opening credits to the series, Sadola is seen battling Doragory, even though neither monster fought nor met each other in the series.
- Sadola, as well as Telesdon and Red King were referenced by the Spark Dolls Troupe in New Ultraman Retsuden episode 16 to demonstrate the "Rampaging hordes of monsters" living on Planet Boris.

Sadola first appeared in episode 26 of the series Redman where he fought Dangar and won by beating him to death with his pincer claws. He then came face to face with Redman and decided to fight. Redman won by stabbing Sadola with Red Knife, killing the monster as a result.
Sadola reappeared in episode 28 where he fought Ghostron and was too occupied with the brute to notice Redman's appearance. He was eventually killed when Ghostron beats him to death.
In episode 112, Sadola teamed up with Shugaron and Gudon to fight Redman at a field. He, along with the other monsters, knocked away the alien hero's Red Knives when he threw them at them and then engaged him in an evenly matched fight with the usual grapples, throws, chops, punches, and kicks. Despite having the team advantage against him, Redman didn't give up and eventually, after he defeated Gudon and Shugaron, the alien hero defeated Sadola with a Red Chop to the head.
Sadola reappeared in episode 116, where he once again teamed up with Shugaron to fight Redman in a grassy field. Both monsters had the advantage over the alien hero due to their combined brute force and strategic know how in teamwork, but nonetheless, Redman didn't lose hope and he managed to hold his own against the two monsters with his usual brutal moveset and then, he defeated Sadola with a Red Chop to the head.
In episode 117, Sadola teamed up with Gudon and Zagoras to fight Redman in a grassy field. He was the one who caught the alien hero's Red Knife when it was thrown at the monsters. He, along with the others, took turns holding the alien hero and punching and kicking him while he was at a disadvantage, giving the monsters the advantage at first. However, Redman didn't give up and fought back against the trio. After he defeated Gudon and Zagoras, the alien hero defeated Sadola by stabbing him in the mouth with his Red Knife, killing him as a result.
Sadola reappeared in episode 118 where he teamed up with not only Gudon and Zagoras again, but also with Alien Icarus. While Gudon and Alien Icarus were taking on Redman, Sadola and Zagoras, joined in on the fight, making it very unfair for Redman. Even though all four monsters had the upper hand against the hero due to them overpowering him with their teamwork and strength, the former didn't give up and eventually, he killed all four monsters by throwing his Red Knife at them, killing them all in the process.
In episode 119, Sadola teamed up with Gudon, Zagoras, Alien Icarus, and Shugaron to take on Redman. All five of them avoided getting killed by the alien hero's Red Knife twice by crossing their arms simultaneously. Redman tried to take on the monsters one at a time with his usual moveset of throws, grapples, punches and chops, but he was overpowered by their sheer ferocity and well-rounded teamwork. However, Redman didn't give up and kept up his assault until eventually, he defeated all five of them by throwing his Red Knife in the center of the circle of monsters, resulting in them getting knocked down and out by the explosion.
Sadola reappeared in episode 120 where he teamed up with Draculas to take on Redman. Even though the alien hero held his own against both monsters, the two of them managed to overpower the alien hero with their brute strength and well-coordinated teamwork. Even though the monsters managed to dodge Redman's Red Arrow when the latter controlled the outcome of the fight, he still pulled through and defeated both monsters one at a time with his Red Kick.
In episode 122, Sadola teamed up with Beacon to take on Redman. Sadola met up with his partner Beacon when he teleported to the top of the hill he was on and then went down that hill to regroup with that monster after he teleported back down. While the alien hero managed to hold his own against both monsters, they had the upper hand in the fight by dodging and countering his moveset. Nonetheless, Redman didn't give up and eventually, after he killed Beacon, defeated Sadola with a hard double kick to the neck.
Sadola reappeared in episode 125, where he ganged up with Alien Icarus and Draculas to take on Redman. All three of them managed to give the alien hero a hard time in battle due to their overwhelming teamwork and brute force. Even though he fell down every time he had a chance to turn the tide, Redman didn't give up and after a long struggle, he defeated Sadola with a hard kick to the stomach after he killed Icarus and Draculas soon followed.
In episode 126, Sadola teamed up with Alien Bat and Beacon to take on Redman. The three monsters duked it out with the alien hero at the cliffs and the advantage over him due to their brute force and overwhelming teamwork. All four of them then got into a ditch and climbed back out eventually to continue the fight. During that time, Redman managed to hold his own against all three monsters and eventually he defeated them all by firing a Red Shot from his Red Knife.
Sadola reappeared in episode 127 where he teamed up with the same monsters from last time to fight Redman. They started their fight on top of a hill but then Redman sent them tumbling down and they resumed their fight at the bottom. Even though the monsters had the team advantage against him, the alien hero managed to hold his own against the trio much better than last time with his usual moveset and successfully defeated the three monsters by jumping up to the top of the hill and threw his Red Arrow at the monsters and they got knocked out by the explosion from that said weapon.
In episode 131, Sadola faced off against Redman alone. Learning his mistakes from his past fights, Sadola's skills have improved yet he still managed to hold even ground against the alien hero. After the two endured a very long, evenly matched fight, Sadola eventually lost when Redman delivered a hard Red Kick on him, resulting in his defeat.
Sadora reappeared in episode 133 where he teamed up with Kodaigon to battle Redman. At the start of the fight, the alien hero tricked the two monsters into running into each other but they avoided major damage by crossing their arms simultaneously when Redman threw two Red Knives at them. After that, the two of them gained the upper hand over Redman due to their well-coordinated teamwork and brute force, however, the latter didn't give up and eventually gained the upper hand back in battle. Sadora was eventually killed when he got stabbed in the chest by Redman's Red Arrow and Kodaigon soon followed suit.
Sadola made his final appearance on the show in episode 134, where he teamed up with not only Kodaigon once more, but also with Dorako and Zetton II to battle Redman. All four monsters confused the alien hero by jumping up and teleporting with each other and then teleported back into a horizontal line. Even though all four monsters held the upper hand against the alien hero for the majority of the fight, Redman persevered. In the end, after a long fight, he defeated all four monsters by throwing his Red Arrow at them from the top of a hill and they fell down due to the resulting explosion.
Sadola reappeared in the series, Ultra Zone. Sadola first appeared in episode 1 in the segment "Monster transfer student," where he shows off his superpowers to students in a classroom.
- The Sadola suit from Ultraman Mebius was reused in Ultra Zone.
