Nelonga is an invisible monster (“transparent monster” as the Japanese alias) which appears when charging electricity.

Originally it was a monster dwelling in a well dug 300 years ago.

Legend (in the drama) has it that a samurai named Tsuyoemon Murai (a name which doesn’t sound real unfortunately) got rid of it in the Edo Period (1603-1868).

While hiding in the well, it learnt to turn electricity into energy somehow (What a smart guy!), which made it grow huge.

It grew up so huge that it came out of the ground.

To absorb electricity through the unicorn, it attacked a hydro power plant, electric transmission plant and finally the Third Heat Power Plant.

Putting the unicorn and the two antennas together, it gives out an electric attack.

The unicorn gleaming in relay while absorbing electricity and before emitting the electric attack looks quite attractive.

In the drama, the Spider Shot Shonen (boy) Hoshino got from Arashi and used without permission made the monster one eyed.

Its electric attack which destroyed the power plant had no effect on Ultraman.

Though its battle with Ultraman made Ultraman’s strength stand out, it’s a four-footed monster just like a monster which attracts fans even now.
