Kotaro, who is a photographer, finds out the very shocking fact that some aliens have been making use of special camera devices to make people disappear.
Shinjiro was with Rena when an alien attack attracted his attention. Kotaro is present at the scene and sees a group of women dressed up as maids. As the fight between Shinjiro, Moroboshi, and the attacking alien gets more intense, one of the maids uses a device because of which everyone disappears into thin air. Only Moroboshi, Kotaro, and Izumi get left behind. Kotaro tries his best to find out about the strange group of people dressed as maids.
While trying to discover about the group of maids, he reaches their den where he sees the leader of the group, Maya, and also gets to know that Maya is planning to capture another Ultraman.
Agent Adad informs Moroboshi that he thinks that the disappearances are the work of Alien Wadoran, which is a species of aliens who are making use of the lives of humans so that they can sustain their own. He also briefs him about how they do this. The aliens make use of a life-energy camera to break down humans and eventually transport them to the Star of Darkness ship.
Kotaro on the other hand tries to capture the aliens by making their video but gets caught in the process. The video however reaches Moroboshi. The aliens are successfully able to capture Izumi and she also gets transported but when they try to capture Kotaro, the transportation fails and Kotaro ultimately becomes a fire-yielding alien.
Jack reaches the spot as Ultraman and makes use of his powers to handle the situation. He uses another Ultraman suit to trap Kotaro to prevent a nuclear fission reaction which might have caused a lot of harm to everyone.
When all this was happening, Alien Pedan who is the leader of Star of Darkness, a terrorist organization, appeared. He sends a message to the people of the earth seeking a sacrifice of half the population so that he could be spared in return.
Kotaro gets back to his human form and helps Jack. When Jack declines to take Kotaro with him, Kotaro steals Jack’s Ultraman suit. He then goes to the location where the main unit is situated. It is that point through which the people are being transported.
