History[edit | edit source]

Megaloman[edit | edit source]

"Roar! Space Kenpo"[edit | edit source]

Zaninga first appeared from a pink meteor-like orb which crash landed into a body of water. The capsule released Zaninga who set off for a rampage. Eventually, Takeshi Shishido flew after the monster and transformed into Megaloman. They commenced battle, ending with Zaninga being beaten and retreating underground. It dug to a city and began destroying it without interference from Megaloman. However, Rosemary kept tabs on the monster and notified Takeshi of its location. Megaloman flew to Zaninga's location and they continued battle. This time, Zaninga was able to push Megaloman into a power line, giving itself enough time to once again burrow. Just as before, Zaninga reappeared at a different location which Megaloman flew to. This pattern repeated once more, and their battle finally ended with Zaninga's destruction to Megaloman's 'Megalo Fire'.
