The Prince of Monsters: Part 1 (怪獣殿下 前篇 Kaijū Denka Zenpen) is the twenty-sixth episode of Ultraman. On the DVD release this episode was renamed His Majesty Monster, Part 1/The Monster Prince, Beginning.


Scientists capture a monster in order to put in on display at the World's Fair. Their attempt fails and the monster is on the loose. After the monster begins tunneling underground, the Science Patrol must track its location so they can prevent it from harming nearby populated areas.

However, when the monster (called Goora in the English-language version) attracts the attention of Ultraman, inexplicably, he loses the Beta Capsule. A boy by the name of Hajime finds it. The narrator of the English-language version concludes the installment with these ominous words:
"Too weak to fight any longer, Ultraman must replenish his energy--but will he have enough to destroy Goora?
"See the next thrilling episode of--ULTRAMAN!!!"
