The original premise of this series was the monsters are created by "Minus Energy" as result of negative emotions of humans, after three episodes this premise seems to be all but forgotten as the space monsters and alliens start appearing. Ocassionally the writers will make a brief return the idea of "Minus Energy" monsters. "Minus Energy" monsters appear in episodes 1, 2, 3, 36 and 49.

Episode 8: Tabra - 3,000 years ago this monster fed on the people of Japan until a mysterious "Warrior of Light" sealed it under a mountain (apparently in 1980 Tsuburaya hadn't decided how long the people from M78 live or what Ultraman 80's age is because Yamato, Takeshi thiinks this warrior might be one of his ancestors, however the Ultras are now said to live for many thousands of years and Ultraman 80 is said to be 8,000 years old, so calling it his ancestor no longer fits), an archaeologist who knew of the existance of the monster and the warrior also knew from hieroglyphics on a rock that Ultramane usually take a human form but everyoneelse laughs at the idea that it could possible by Yamato, Takeshi

Episode 11: Medan - tiny monster hatches from an egg, destroyed but some cells survived inside a sea shell which was taken into UGM base, where they grew into a new monster, which attacked UGM support personnel and passed through UGM natural gas pipes into the city's natural gas pipe lines, this monster is so full of natural gas UGM cannot fire on it out of fear it explode and take the pipelines wiith it, and to make matters worse a thunder storm rolls in and a lightning strike could have the same effect (first episode in which Yamato, Takeshi is seen only as UGM officer not as a school teacher though he does mention having a class the tomorrow)

Milly Alien Vibros Gora

Episode 12: Alien Vibros & Gora - the girls in Yamato, Takeshi's class attempt to pull a trick on "Professor" (glasses wearing litttle boy) by leaving him a fake "secret admirer" letter but then he actually meets a girl named Milly, where the letter signed "M" told him to meet the girl, unfortunantly for "Professor" the girl Aoyama, Milly is not actually the daughter of an American man and a Japenese woman, who has been living in the Netherlands and so doesn't know Japan very well, as she tells Yamato, Takeshi but is actually an Alien Vibros who has made several attempts on the life of Yamato, Takeshi and ultimately releases the monster Gora to kill Ultraman 80, so her kind can conquer the Earth to use it as a base for further conquest of the universe, despite actually developing feelings for Hiroshi aka "Professor" (Yamato, Takeshi lies to Hiroshi, telling him Milly went back to the Netherlands when in fact she went back to her world, probably to be executed for failing to conquer the Earth, this is the last episode featuring the school or the students)

Episode 13: Alien Gorgon & Saramandora - Alien Gorgon send Saramandora to attack Japan, while their agents assassinate the UGM Europe and UGM North American captains, when the assassin sent after Japan's Captain Oyama, Kazuki is killed by the captain its body turns into that of a woman and he is accused of murder, the aliens digused as humans lead protests against UGM , then they send a second version of the monster when they are exposed for what they really are (Saramandora reappears in Ultraman Mebius episode 17)
Episode 14: Zarudon - can hypnotise humans and teleport them it so it can eat them, but teleporting too many people is, exhausting it so it spends most of the episode sleeping

Mue Alien Ruria Devilon

Episode 15: Mue - a tiny, passive, alien creature brought to Earth by a member of the Space Mammy crew, a mad scientist aubducted it, experimented on it (torturing it). transforming it into a human sized creature and then into an agressive giant monster, which stepped on the scientist crushing him to death, Ultraman 80 shrinks Mue back to its original size and carries it back into space where it belongs
Episode 16 Alien Ruria & Devilon - Alien Ruria defeated a space monster Devilon, and trapped in inside a crystal which they launched into space, the crystal included a warning message, the crystal was found by an Earth space shuttle and taken to Earth where it was treated as a work of art, the message was translated too late, UGM Communications Officer Jono, Em was possessed by Devilon which transformed her body into its own, Devilon initiallty appears as a human sized monster, using telekiness to destroy property and telepathy to turn peaceful people into rampaging mobs, it only giantizes after some idiot solders from the United Nations Defense Army (the UN never gets anything right) shoos it with laser rifles, giving it the energy boost it was waiting for (it actually lifted two UMG officers out of the way of the soliders so they could fire, which should have clued those idiot soliders into the that fact it wanted to be shot), Devilon then used its telepahty on the three male human members of UMG so they would attack Ultraman 80 when Takeshi transformed

Lavras Daron Gymaira

Episodes 17 & 18: Lavras - UGM Chief Ito, Junkichi was transformed into this monster (the woman he's looking at is his girlfriend, a friendly alien in disguise), initially passive Lavras does not become aggressive until a strange roaring coming from a cave drives Lavras and the sea monster Daron mad, Ultraman 80 is at a disadvantage as he knows this monster is a human turned into a monster against his will
Episodes 17 & 18: Daron - sea monster, not once human according to the alien woman, controlled by roariing coming from a cave, Ultraman 80 doesn't care about sparing this monster at all and kills it at start of episode 18
Episodes 17 & 18: Gymaira - uses hypnotic gas to control humans so it can drain their blood, uses a ray that can turn living things into giant monsters, just destroys inanamite objects, the monsters howling drives other monsters into a killing frenzy, all that is seen of Gymaira in episode 17 are tenticles which attach to human's necks to suck blood out of them, Gymaira doesn't show itself the end end of episode 18, when Lavras comes to the aid of Ultraman 80, Gymaira apparently forgot its roat could control other monsters because it killed Lavras instead which leaves the Chief's dead body on the sure, this so aggrevates Ultraman 80 he rallies to kill Gymaira, the alien woman than sacrifices her life energy to revive the human she loved

Gaus Okorin Ball

Episode 19: Gaus - only survivor of a planet blown up by Earth, a red star was on a collison course with Earth so Space Mammy wes sent to delive almost all of Earth's nuclear weapons to blow it up, Yamato, Takeshi, knew that one of the planets orbiting the star, Gaus, was inhabited but he couldn't figure out how to tell the humans without revealing how he knows, that he is Ultraman 80, as Ultraman 80 he lets the attacking monster surrender and teleports to a new planet since it was after all just responding to the destruction of its home planet (not the first time the humans in an Ultraman series destroyed an inhabited world and the last survivor came seaking revenge)
Episode 20: Okorin Ball - probably the silliest episode, after a space ship carrying 50 men home to Earth after a mission of one year on the moon reports being attacked by "space balls"before vanishing, the balls appear on Earth disguised as various sizes and types of balls,in reality they are space vampires, eventually they form the monster Okorin Ball

Episode 21: Gamos - the monster Zuckal is hunting, which actually resoinsible for the death and detruction

Episode 26: Akuzone & Gera - Yamato, Takeshi and Jono, Emi are sucked into in an alternate reality fighting the dimension hopping Akuzone (human sized) and their giant monster Gera or were they? After Ultraman 80 flies Joni, Emi back through the dimensonal rift, Yamato, Takeshi and Jono, Emi wake up, on the ground, on Earth not far from the smoking ruines of their crashed Silver Gul.

Episode 33: Gazera - a glowing green sphere enters a child's toy monster which the boy calls Gazera, to turn into into a real giant monster, according to Jono, Emi the glowing sphere was the spirit of a previouslu killed monster looking to rampage once more [I thought it was going to be a "Minus Energy" monster caused by the sick boy's fear of surgery]

Ghostdon Tetsuon Space Plant

Episode 38: Ghostdon - two men die in a truck crash, the driver lives long enough to tell his son a monster caused the crash but no one believes the boy until the monster strikes again (this episode is as annoying as Ultraman Leo episode 46 which it copies, monster after monster appears on the Earth yet know one belives a monster forced a truck off the road), Ghostdon is actually an evil spirit seaking a physical form, when two boy indulge in a kite fight (a discusting concept teaching young boys exactly the wrong things) with one kite painted with Ultraman 80 on it and the other with a monster painted on it, Ghostdon picks the monster on the kite for its form, lightning from this monster causes Sky Higer piloted by Yamato, Takeshi to crash, he parchutes out but the monster hits him with a bolt, on the ground Yamato, Takeshi tires but failes to transform, for the first time he's afraid he's going to die, then he hears the voice of the Father of Ultra speaking to him from the Land of Light and spured on by his commanding officer's command to "rise and fight as a bolt of justice against evil" he does so

Episode 45: Alien Baltan VI - 2nd attempt by a Baltan to conquer Earth while Ultraman 80 is there, first appears humansized, and disguises itself as various humans, its evil scheme is to get a boy to take fake UFO pictures, this episode makes no sense to me at al,l and again Yamato, Takeshi lies to children, good thing he's no longer a school teacher after all,

Episode 47: Glovusk - a disgarded baseball glove is turned into a giant monster by ultraviolet rays (once again this should have been a "Minus Energy" monster, created by a child's anger and disappointment but wasn't) [the "science" in this episode is totally wrong, ozone is actually created by ultraviolet rays and it absorbs infrared rays, not ultraviolet, as long as the sun exists there will be ultraviolet rays producing ozone, pollution is not destroying the ozone layer, on the contarary it is increasing ozone layers at the surface of the Earth, and that is a problem as too much ozone is toxic]
Episode 48: Idantenran - a normally friendly monster which lives on 'Death Mountain" and only comes to town disguised as a teenage boy to race in marathons, only becomes its monster and runs around at high speeds destroying nearby buildings, since he's not actually evil or a mindless beast Ultraman 80 defeats him without killing him. and back in his human form he runs back to Death Mountain.
