In the spring of 1975, peace returned to the universe once more. But then members of the Ultra Brothers started being assasinated by someone, one by one. The perpetrator was Jackal the Demonic Space Overlord. Jackal was an alien defeated by Ultraman King and banished to spend an eternity in a black hole. Having returned, Jackal sent his armies to Earth to uncover any Ultra Warriors that may be hiding in humanoid form there. Jackal's minions resorted to threatening to kill human beings held as hostages in order to force Ultra Warriors to reveal themselves.

Just when it seemed all hope was lost, a mysterious warrior wearing a suit of armor that obscured his identity appeared from the heavens...[2]


The events of "Jackal vs. Ultraman" takes place in the spring of 1975, a short time after the events of Ultraman Leo.

Ultraman fighting in space

It begins with the original Ultraman flying through space, when he suddenly encounters Zetton, a monster who had defeated Ultraman before. The two fought in space in an unknown star system, as Zetton had the upper hand, and the battle soon ends with Ultraman being brutally shot in the chest at point blank range, straight at his Color Timer. A red crystal formed over his Timer as his lifeless body drifted through space and into a star.

Ultraman was not the only one to die. Jack would be seen lying dead on the ground of an unknown planet, Taro's lifeless body was left floating in an asteroid field, and Ace was crucified. Even Astra met his demise by someone who appeared to be Zoffy, although the real Zoffy, along with Ultraman Leo and other Inter Galactic Defense Force officers were there to witness impostor. He soon reveal himself to be the Demon King Jackal, an evil alien who was sealed in a black hole by Ultraman King a long time ago.

Jackal was revealed to have been the real killer of the Ultra Brothers, as he had the power to transform into other creatures he saw fit. The situation with Jackal's assault on the universe became so severe that Zoffy, the Mother of Ultra, and various other Ultras had taken human disguises and went to hiding on Earth, which was being assaulted directly by Jackal's army.

King Jackal's minions threatened the lives of humans to bring Zoffy out of hiding, but soon were attacked by an unknown warrior who wore a suit of armor. It was soon revealed to be the captain of the Andromeda Nebula Branch of the Inter Galactic Defense Force: Melos. With the arsenal of his armor, the Cosmo Tector, Melos had set in motion the chance for Zoffy and other Ultras to counterattack against King Jackal on his home world, eventually leading to a showdown between Melos and Jackal.

They both fought, and despite Jackal's ability to shapeshift, he was brought to his knees as his left horn was cut off by Melos' Andrang. As the evil alien feigned defeat and pretended to beg for mercy, he waited to catch Melos at his vulnerable, betting on Melos' compassion to give him an opening. The trick worked, and the evil alien soon broke Melos' arm and deactivated his armor, before unloading his powerful Jackal Destruction Ray upon the Ultra.

Believing Melos to be dead, Jackal prepared to resume his universal conquest,when suddenly, a being inside the Cosmo Techtor armor stepped forward to challenge Jackal. Believing him to be Melos, King Jackal soon opened fire upon the armored warrior, caught by surprised when he suddenly fires the M87 Beam at Jackal and his army.

It was soon revealed to be Zoffy, as Melos' own intervention had saved him and given the other Ultra Brothers: Ultraman, Ultraseven, Jack, Ace, and Taro, time to arrive and fire their signature beams at King Jackal, destroying the vile alien. Seeing this, the other Jackal aliens decided to stop fighting and leave, seeing the futility of their struggle. Meanwhile Melos is revealed to have survived Jackal's attack. Peace was once again restored to the Galactic Republic.
