History

Ultra Nyan

An alien red and white cat, Nyan was adopted by a human family and made friends with the local cats. He later saved his owner and other cats from a duo of crooks who were stealing cats to sell to pet shops.

Ultra Nyan 2

Still living on Earth, his neighborhood came under assault from a gang of crows, one of whom he made friends with. In the end, to save his friends, particularly some kittens from the boss crow, he transformed and eventually calmed the crows.

Transformation

Ultra Nyan transforms by the power from his Tail Ring. He jumps through the ring, then appears out on the other side in his "giant" form.

Techniques

  • Mankiumu Ray: Nyan's Specium style beam ability. Fired from the beckoning cat pose.
  • Telekinesis: By waving his tail and activating his ring, Nyan can levitate objects and hurl them at enemies.
  • Matter Transmutation: Nyan can transform objects into something else like a piece of wire into a rose or rubble from a wrecked building into doves.
  • Flight: Like all Ultras, Ultra Nyan can fly.
  • Telepathy: In the first short, Nyan entered Haruka's dreams and communicated with her, telling her where he came from and about his mission.
