History

Ultraman Neos

On one sunny day in a small construction site, a giant bug-like monster appeared by the name of Shildoban. Two HEART Winners showed up and easily destroyed the cockroach Kaiju with a single missile that tore through his body. Shildoban was buried underneath the construction site and was given an honorable burial. The next day Backacoon was easily out done by Ultraman Neos and became desperate by using a mushroom from his tail to revive Shildoban to assist him. HEART tried to disconnect the root that was keeping Shildoban under Backacoon's control, but failed as the two monsters were more than Neos could handle. Hino showed up in the other HEART Winner and distracted Backacoon while Neos dealt with Shildoban. Hino disconnected the root on Backacoon's tail making Shildoban return to being dead.

Trivia

  • Suit actor: Yokoo Kazunori
  • Designer: Hiroshi Maruyama
  • As pointed out by the HEART members, Shildoban's status as Backacoon's zombie puppet is a reference to caterpillar fungus in real life and how they influences infected caterpillars in terms behavior.
  • Shildoban's suit would later be modified into Bugbuzun in Ultraman Nexus.
