In the year 1965, Yanakargi came to Earth pursued by Ultraman. The Ultra sealed the beast at the bottom of a lake in Japan. Thirty-one years later, an alien by the name of Charija travelled to Earth to find or buy a new monster. Unable to find a kaiju, Charija used a device to travel back to 1965. There he released Yanakargi from his wet tomb.
Daigo Madoka pursued the alien, but could not stand and watch as a monster went on a rampage. He transformed into Ultraman Tiga and began to fight the kaiju. After a long battle, Yanakargi began to drain Tiga's energy. Suddenly, due to Eiji Tsuburaya's strong will, Ultraman was summoned. Ultraman came to the rescue and healed his brother-in-arms. The two Ultras then fired their signature beams, the Zepellion Ray and Specium Ray, killing Yanakargi. Charija then disappeared, vowing to return.
