Yapool (ヤプール Yapūru) is an evil entity and the main antagonist from Ultraman Ace. He has been defeated many times but proves to be immortal because of his eternal resentment for Ultras. He also tends to avoid death due to his cunning and intelligence, and use of alternate forms and his creations, the Choju, to avoid detection.

Yapool, as seen throughout Ace.

Yapool, an ancient creature from another dimension with similarities to Satan and Legion, was an extremely skilled being of many conciousnesses with a knack for creating biological creations known as Choju. Yapool set his sights for Earth, but the original Five Ultra Brothers sent with their youngest member, Ultraman Ace and Earth's attack team at that time, TAC would came to stop him. Yapool would send many monsters to defeat Ultraman Ace, even seeking alien allies but all failed.


Main article: Vakishim

Vakishim in Ultraman Ace

For once, Yapool decided to take the matters on his own by turning himself into Vakishim (バキシム Bakishimu) to attack Earth, first by attacking Minami (the female co-host of Ultraman Ace). While she managed to survive, Vakishim managed to possess (or possibly impersonate) a small boy and used him as a puppet to hide from TAC. As the boy, he set his parents' and his home village on fire in a brutal display. Once TAC found out about the truth, Vakishim escaped from the boy's body and transformed into his true form and fled through his dimensional portal. Vakishim reappeared out from a different portal near TAC's HQ and proceeded to attack, with nothing that TAC's fighter jets could do. Finally, Ultraman Ace arrived to do battle and after a long brutal fight, Ultraman Ace destroyed Vakishim's horn with the Star Beam Cutter and kills Vakishim with the Palm Cutter followed by the Ace Slash. Despite Vakishim's defeat, but Yapool managed to survive in his own. Burn! Choju Hell

Strange Old Man and Giant Yapool

Yapool original

Giant Yapool in Ultraman Ace

Old Man Yapool

Yapool in his Strange Old Man form.

In episode 23, Yapool took action on his own again, plotting a global scale plan with his two new alias, Strange Old Man (怪老人 Kai Rōjin) and Giant Yapool (巨大ヤプール Kyodai Yapūru).

One day, Yapool for the first time schemed an invasion on their own hands without using Chojus. They started off by sending an agent of them in disguise as an old man, manipulating children from around the globe by singing a hypnotic music and said the world will end. While Hokuto was patrolling, he saw them but it took Yapool's teleporting ability to catch his attention and rushed to the beach where his kidnapping plot took place. Once arrived, the Strange Old Man transformed his head into that of a gorilla and summoned a snowstorm before he attacked Hokuto with his Fire Breath. Hokuto shot him but that made him fell from a cliff. Fortunately, he survived but heavily injured.

Knowing how far Yapool had gone through TAC decided to attack Yapool in his own domain. Using a special dimensional traveling device TAC sent Hokuto first because he volunteered. However, as the traveling started Yapool began to disrupt it and nearly teleported him into another dimension, but Zoffy arrived and managed to allow him and Minami to become Ultraman Ace. Once Ace was in his dimension Yapool combined themselves and used their anger over Ace and TAC to turn into a single entity, Giant Yapool. The battle between the two giants commenced as Giant Yapool and Ace exchanged beams until he was incapable of going on much further. With Giant Yapool beaten, Ace decided to leave his dimension. The Strange Old Man fainted after his comrades' defeat affect him as well and returning the kidnapped children once and for all. Although Yapol was not killed he would be incapacitated long enough for other aliens to attack Earth while he recovered. Reversal! Zoffy Now Arrives

  • NOTE: According to past magazines and episode 23 and 24 of "Ultraman Ace", the destruction of Giant Yapool caused his cells to disperse around the Earth and therefore leads to multiple Super Beast attacks in spite of his absence. This claim is even confirmed in the manual for Ultraman Ace Blu-ray BOX.

Yapool Woman

Yapool later schemed his vengeance on Hokuto, who was now the sole host of Ace since Minami had left after countless failure of his plans. He disguised himself as a female dentist and tried to make Hokuto to cause him to go insane by placing a hallucination chip on his teeth while he was given a dental care, causing Verokron II to appear only in front of his eyes everywhere. After Hokuto saw several delusions of Verokron II not seen by anyone else and had taken action himself, he was fired from TAC for his unwarranted assault on what they did not see.

Without Hokuto in TAC anymore Yapool felt satisfied and unleashed the real Verokron II to attack the city. The real Verokron II was eliminated by Ace afterwards as Woman Yapool's tricks were later foiled and was killed by Hokuto himself when he fired his gun at the fiend, as he fainted and was reduced to bubbles. But as he was about to report the dental clinic, the entire premise disappeared alongside Yapool's cadaver.The Revenge of Verokron

Alien Simon

Although seemingly dead, Yapool had survived, and then used this alien form (in a juvenile state) as a disguise. He first pretended to be targeted by Yapool in order to get closer to TAC. He later escorted some kids away to safety when Jumbo King attacked the city. Despite talking only in his kind's language but later he told Hokuto via specialized telepathy that he is Yapool in disguise and his true plan was to getting his revenge on TAC, Hokuto/Ace and depriving the children's kindness. Once again, Yapool was killed (seemingly for the last time) by Hokuto before transforming into Ace and fighting Jumbo King. Jumbo King was defeated and Yapool's reign on Earth seemingly ended. Tomorrow's Ace Is You!

Ultraman Taro

  • NOTE: While not mentioned in the series, but a 1990 magazine stated that Yapool collaborated with Alien Empera during his presence, with Reconstructed Bemstar being one of the products of their collaboration. This entry in the franchise also establishes Yapool's giant form to be his standard form, and from here on the form becomes his most-used appearance in the Ultra Series.
Giant yapool 2

Giant Yapool, as seen in Ultraman Taro.

Many months after Ultraman Ace defeated his most powerful choju, Jumbo King, Yapool hid himself into exile and somehow created a vehicle that not only allowed him to enter Earth's dimension, but also travel through space. He first made Oil Drinker to attack Earth, but it was killed by Astromons, Afterwards, he revived Bemstar. But unlike the original, Yapool made his own modifications to turn it into Reconstructed Bemstar. ZAT was well aware and alert of the situation and tested a new type of giant buzzsaw on Reconstructed Bemstar they claimed was exactly like Jack's Ultra Bracelet, but Yapool's modifications proved that it was not enough to defeat Reconstructed Bemstar. After Reconstructed Bemstar defeated Taro, Yapool demanded him to eat the rest of the oil refinery he was attacking. ZAT returned and began to attack Bemstar. After Bemstar was starting to lose his spirit after being repetitively stabbed in the eyes by a man Yapool revived Sabotendar to kill the man. Soon Kotaro returned, transformed into Taro and began to fight Bemstar and Sabotender. Furious that Taro was still alive, Yapool revived Verokron II to take care of the situation only for all the Monsters to be defeated. Yapool tried to retreat from Earth's atmosphere, but Taro made his vehicle explode with him inside using his Storium Ray, defeating him once again. Bemstar Resurrected! Taro Absolutely Sacrificed! Counterattack! Monster Army

Ultraman Mebius & the Ultra Brothers

In the 1986, the ever plotting Yapool sent a new choju of his, called the U-Killersaurus, to dispose of Ultraman, Ultraseven, Jack, and Ace. The battle began on the moon, with the four Ultras dodging everything U-Killersaurus threw at them. Grappling with the beast proved futile, as its strength was enough to hold off two Ultras at once. Yapool laughed at their efforts. He claimed that U-Killersaurus was created from the hate of the Yapool. When the four Bros. tried to use their beams on the choju, it flew towards Earth. The heroes tried to stop U-Killersaurus, only to be met by a barrage of his organic missiles. Avoiding those, the Bros. prepared to launch their beams again, when Ultraman halted them; firing their beams so close to the Earth could harm the citizens. After grappling with U-Killersaurus' extendable claws, it was then that the four of them did the only thing they could do without harming Earth: imprison U-Killersaurus in a dimensional prison with its creator, Yapool. After crippling U-Killersaurus by blasting off his limbs, Jack and Ace combined their Specium and Metallium Rays to send U-Killersaurus plummeting into the Earth. The Bros. arrived at the scene, and, using the Final Cross Shield, the four Bros. sealed U-Killersaurus and Yapool into the bay they had landed in.

"Commrade? Don't make me laugh. He was nothing but sacrificial pawn."

―Yapool as he reveal his betrayal against Alien Nackle.

For twenty years both Yapool and U-Killersaurus would remain sealed, until he duped a group of aliens, Temperor, Zarab, Guts, and Nackle into free them. After finally being revived by Alien Nackle and Alien Guts, U-Killersaurus was even more powerful than before. Yapool was revived as well, and casually killed his supposed ally, Nackle (Guts was destroyed by Mebius). As far as he was concerned, Nackle was just a pawn. U-Killersaurus then proceeded to mercilessly beat the Ultra Bros. with his new strength. Even when Ultraman Taro and Zoffy arrived to assist the brothers, they still could not stop this juggernaut of a monster. U-Killersaurus Neo soon caught Mebius with his large pinchers, and prepared his ultmite attack in order to kill him. However, the remaining Ultra Bros. combined their power with Mebius, and the result was Ultraman Mebius Infinity. U-Killersaurus Neo was helpless against him, as he easily smashed into his body and came out the other side, causing U-Killersaurus Neo to decay into dust, along with Yapool, ending his terror until Alien Empera revived him months later.Ultraman Mebius & the Ultra Brothers

Ultraman Mebius


Yapool's first appearance in Mebius

Yapool then reappeared in Ultraman Mebius episode 24 and became a recurring antagonist in the show.

Having escaped death, Yapool sought his revenge on Mebius by kidnapping Ryu Aihara and possess him in a plot to frame Mirai. His plan almost worked (sabotaged a GUYS aircraft) until Sakomizu appeared and foil his plot. Under Ryu's assurance, Mirai fired his GUYS Memory Display, forcing Yapool to exit and took over Vakishim before retreated.The Resurrection of Yapool When Asami Fujisawa presented GUYS with a Meteor capable of sealing the dimensional portal, Yapool possessed her in hopes of disposing the device but realised too late that it was all a ploy to lure his Super Beast Doragory.The Poisonous Moth's Program Yapool's dimension was sealed with Dimensional Dissolver in hopes of preventing him to attack Earth.Flying to Tomorrow

Several months later, he appeared to have unseal the portal and utilized Gadiba in possessing Red King within Tatar Island. Although fought by Mebius, Gadiba soon expelled under Yapool's orders, leaving Gomora (who borrowed the appearance of Red King) to deal with the Ultra.An Old Friend's Visit He would soon join the ranks of Dark Four Heavenly Kings, confidently being the first to left and attack Mebius in hopes of giving the Earth to Alien Empera. His first mission is by luring GUYS to outer space with a crystal missile and for Lunaticks to deal them while personally sending his revived Ace Killer to fight Mebius. In the middle of the battle, he assimilated Gadiba with Ace Killer into Mebius Killer, overpowering Mebius until he comes up with a new tactic; Mebium Dynamite. Once Mebius revert to Mirai, he kidnapped the Ultra and two other humans, Aya and Hirukawa.Threatening Mebius-Killer

He brought his targets to a dimension which appeared to be Tokyo in ruins. Seeing Hirukawa's irrational desperation to survive, he coerced the man to shoot both Aya and Mirai, ultimately exposing the latter as an Ultra in disguise. When Mirai refused to admit the ugly truth of humanity, Yapool engages in a battle against the Ultra and successfully weaken him. He shift his attention to Aya and blasted the area in front of her, nearly killing her. Encouraged by Seiji, Mebius' power and spirit were restored, and much to Yapool's surprise, he stood up once more, and assumed his Burning Brave Mode. This time, the tide of the battle turned, as Mebius went on an all-out attack on Yapool before dealing the finishing blow. His last words were that of informing Mebius that more foes, even stronger, would come, such as Deathrem, and Grozam.Ace's Wish

After a battle with Ultraman Ace, he was finally destroyed by a single shot of his Metallium Ray. Ultraman Mebius Gaiden: Ghost Rebirth

Ultraman Ginga

Yapool appeared in Ultraman Ginga as a Spark Doll. In episode 7, he along with many monsters are seen cheering on Ultraman Ginga as he fights Dark Galberos. It is likely that Yapool departed back to his dimension after the defeat of Dark Lugiel.

Yapool GingaS

Yapool harassed Gouki

Yapool return with Vakishim on Ultraman Ginga S episode 5, this time inside his Giant Yapool body for most of his appearance.

Yapool appears when Vakishim was fighting Ginga. Angry at Android One Zero for using Vakishim's Spark Doll without permission, he took control of the Choju away from the android and cast her out of the Lived Doll. He then sent the choju back to his home dimension and told One Zero and Exceller that he will deal with Ginga, knowing about the Chibu's plan to steal the Victorium, and then he vanished, planning on something diabolical with the humans. This event revealed that Yapool was in Vakishim when the monster had turned into a Spark Doll, thus resulting him slumbering inside the choju.

Soon he possessed Gouki Matsumoto and went on a small rampage and even trapped Hikaru Raido in a Dimensional Rift. When Gouki struggled with Yapool for control after seeing a pregant woman needing help and taking her to a nearby hospital, the choju maker transformed into his giant form with Gouki still possessed and was about to strike Arisa Sugita and her UPG vehicle but Gouki fought back until Ginga kicked Yapool, freeing Gouki from his possession. He then ordered Vakishim to retreat back into their dimension but Ultraman Victory followed suit and brought it back. He then fought with Ginga himself who transformed into Strium form and Victory "UITrans" his right hand into the Gudon Whip. After Vakishim's defeat, he tried to return to his dimension, but Victory stopped him and he was then defeated by Ginga using the Metallium Ray. Friend & Demon

Ultra Fight Victory

"Evil dimensional people never die, and the bitter animosity towards the Ultra Warriors allowed me to return with deeper darkness than ever."

―Yapool explaining to Sakuya how he survived his last fight with Ginga and Victory.

"(Laugh) Don't think you're win yet. Now, nobody can stop the revival of the Emperor. Soon, the whole universe will end now!"

―Yapool's last words.


Yapool in Ultra Fight Victory.

Yapool returned in Ultra Fight Victory as the one responsible for sending the Choju. He somehow survived his destruction during his previous defeat at the hands of Ultraman Ginga.

He was first seen studying Ultraman Victory's UlTrans ability, while he was fighting Aribunta. Yapool appeared to Sakuya and confiscated her Victorium Necklace, while stating his plan to go to the Victorium Core. Afterwards, he went down to the Victorium core and used Sakuya's necklace to gather energy from the core itself. Yapool then revealed himself after Victory defeated Aribunta and stated he already had enough power to revive Juda. He then sent Doragory, Verokron, and Vakishim to fight Leo and Astra and protect the distortion that housed the reviving Space Emperor and ordered Ace Killer to stop Ace from saving Ultraman Ginga.

When Victory arrived, Yapool explained that he was able to copy the Ultra's UITrans, and had given it to Ace Killer, declaring him, Victory Killer and later summoned Lunaticks to kill Ginga. After both choju have been killed by Victory and Shepherdon, and Ginga and Ace have been restored, Yapool went to Planet Gua and used the Victorium he stole from the core to kickstart the revival of Juda. He reveled in his glory until Ginga, Victory, and Ace showed up and fired the Victorium Shoot, Ginga Cross Shot, and Punch Laser respectively at the choju. Yapool then grew in size and joined the choju in fighting the Ultras and was winning over the new Ultras thanks to his bitter animosity towards the Ultra Brothers empowering him until the old Ultras suggested that they merge to form Ultraman Ginga Victory and they did. The fight quickly swung into Ginga Victory's favor, and Yapool was defeated with the Ultra Fusion Shoot. In his last act, Yapool gives in his own energy to revive Juda.Ultra Fight Victory

Other Media

  • NOTE: Before the novel was bundled into a book, it was first published in monthly magazines. Yapool's chapter was indeed a filler that exclusive to the novel book itself.

Giant Yapool appeared in this novel as one of the many antagonists.

Through a dimensional crack created by Soso via Clone Bullton, Yapool emerged on Nagoya, Japan, having fused to his Super Beast U-Killersaurus. He demanded an Ultraman for him to fight and thus Hayata (who was separated from Ultraman) appeared. Although declared as a "remnant of the original Ultraman", Yapool was quick to dismiss the former Ultra Host and held Ultraman F as a hostage. F retaliated by escaping and destroy both alien and Super Beast.

  • The Strange Old Man that Yapool uses as a disguise, uses the Toho's Frankenstein's roar from Frankenstein Conquers the World.
  • Since Giant Yapool only fought Ace in his own dimension, none of TAC's documents mentioned him, as revealed in Ultraman Mebius.
  • Giant Yapool's motif is based on a crab and Great King Enma, the god who judge the dead and preside over the Narakas ("Hells" or "Purgatories"), and the cycle of rebirth in Buddhism.
  • When Giant Yapool fights Ace in his own dimension, he doesn't speak at all, instead producing a loud roar similar to Black King's.
  • Though Giant Yapool only appeared in one episode of Ultraman Ace, his form's silhouette can be seen when Jumbo King was being created. In the 2002 magazine, he and Alien Steal were also proclaimed to be one of the components of Jumbo King.
  • In aftermath of his appearance in Ace, Giant Yapool was used as an attraction suit until its head component deteriorated, causing a new head to be made for his return in Ultraman Taro. The children's magazine at that time explained that Giant Yapool was revived and had to perform a plastic surgery to recover from his last battle with Ace. However, the result was crudely done that his head becomes different and a metallic headpiece was installed on his head to replace the original one that had lost.
  • Giant Yapool's suit was reused from Ultraman Mebius with some slight alterations made to it.
  • Yapool in Ultraman Ginga S was the only alien not to have any relation with Alien Chibu Exceller and the latter was surprised to see him not as a Spark Doll.
    • He was also the only alien not to have been in a Spark Doll form.
  • Yapool in Vakishim's body from prior events was a tribute to the choju's appearance in Ultraman Ace whom originally was a form of Yapool before the real one would appear in Ultraman Mebius.
  • This was the first time Giant Yapool battled in the real world instead of his own dimension.
  • While his defeat by the Metallium Ray was a homage to the series he first appeared in, Yapool was then shown to be able to survive that attack back then.
  • This is the first time Yapool failed to escape to his dimensional travel.
  • Yapool is the first opponent in Ginga S to not become a Spark Doll upon defeat or even drop one.
    • This was since he never turned into one.
