"Now the REAL party starts! The whole galaxy will dance for me!"


'Purge (パージ, Pāji) is the leader of the dancing group the Rhythm Rogues and the main antagonist of Space Channel 5 Part 2. With his robots and his henchman Shadow, he plans on making the galaxy happy through dance.

Character InfoEdit

When Purge was 9 years of age, he was successful in the field of wave mechanics. Because of this, he had a powerful enough social and economical status to live on his own.

Eventually however, he started to believe that everyone in the galaxy was stupid and unhappy and that he had to lead them to paradise. With that belief in his head, he decided that he had to make the galaxy dance for him.[1]

Purge's birthday is unknown. He is 18 years old and his blood type is A. When he made his first robot, he didn't give them emotions. This was because he didn't want them to run away [2]and grew up surrounded by them. [3]

At certain points in the game, Purge is revealed to be able to use Dance Energy similar to Ulala, even getting his own "Groove Aura". His is blue, with electricity surrounding it.


Purge has an extremely playful, almost childlike, personality. It's rare for him to take anything seriously and he considers everything to be a game, including life or death situations.

He has unusually strong self-esteem, which is partially due to Hubris. Purge sometimes tends to exaggerate things.

"You saw it...."

During the opening cutscene, Purge attacks Jaguar off screen and turns him into Shadow, later, during the game's intro, he appears at the end, watching Ulala's journey through the first game. Purge is first seen in the opening intro of Space Channel 5 Part 2, watching Ulala's journey through the first game.

Ulala Back in Action! Edit

"They call me Purge! I'll make the galaxy dance for me!"

In the first report, Purge's shadow can be seen in the background monitors of the Kin Kon Kan battle. He faces off against Fuse in a singing battle as Ulala and the rescued hostages take on the robots. Depending upon if the player saved the hostages or not, Purge's dialogue changes significantly, for example: "I'll never give up!" becomes "You don't stand a chance!"

After beating Kin Kon Kan, Purge exclaims that the "party's just begun" and leaves.

Pre-Report 2 Intermission Cutscene Edit

"Your precious Space President, Peace... Has been captured by us, the Rhythm Rogues!"

In the cutscene that happens between report 1 and 2, Purge takes over Moro Channel 5's broadcast to give the player information. In this cutscene, he's taunting the fact that he kidnapped President Peace using a plant mutation ray to create Pon Piriri.

Pre-Report 3 Intermission Cutscene Edit

"I'll exchange the President AND the hostages for 6.6 trillion Space Dollars! Meet me at Point Double X!"

Once again, he takes over Moro Channel 5' broadcast and gives a message to Ulala and Pine. He tells them that he will return all the people he's kidnapped for 6.6 trillion Space Dollars and to meet him at Point Double X.

It's later revealed that this ransom scoop was only a trap to distract everyone long enough for Purge to put his true plan into action.

Report 4: The End for Space Channel 5!? Edit

"I need this Space Transmitter to complete my grand plan! Soon enough... none of you... will have a thing to worry about!"


Purge personally takes on Ulala in The Core.

After saving Space Michael from Shadow, Ulala heads for the core of the station where Purge appears on his Hovercraft and with the Peace Carrier to fight Ulala. Purge and the mecha fight her indidually, where Purge will try to shoot at her while the Peace Carrier will fight her on a dance battle.

After the sequence happening twice, a new segment will begin where he hides behind the Peace Carrier, using the president as a human shield, the player must shoot at the opposite direction Purge says, If the they fail, they will hit the President and Purge will fire a bright pink laser similar at Ulala.

Once the segment is over, Purge will fuse his Hovercraft with the Peace Carrier to create Purge the King and a singing battle will Space Michael takes the lead as the main singer to counter Peace's forced attacks and Ulala meanwhile uses Chu and Hey to counter Purge's singing . As the battle goes on, the station starts to fall apart and more people come to your aid.

Eventually, Purge is left weak as Fuse flys into the station. Using the collective power of everyone in the Core helping Ulala, Fuse fires a shot of energy at Purge the King, but for everybody's surprise, the mecha is capable to reflect it back at Ulala, Fuse takes the hit to save her and is sent flying to his "doom". Purge takes this moment to take the satellite and leave, taunting Ulala. His Robos are seen trying to stop Ulala as she tries to escape the station before it self-destructs.

Report 5: The Spies Get Revenge Edit

"Couldn't you buy me just a little more time? You can't change back yet!"

During the first half of the trap set up for Ulala and her comrades in the Mystery Zone, Shadow laughs everytime you clear a room.

Purge is seen again after Ulala and her friends make it past the Dark Rhythm Robots and duel The Robotic Band in a Battle of the Bands. Shadow is defeated, slightly changing back into Jaguar for a moment, before Purge appears and tells him that he can't change back. At that point, Purge reactivates the brainwashing signal, making Jaguar scream in pain and stay in his Shadow form. Purge then asks Ulala if she can spot the real one amongst the impostors, laughing manically.

During the battle, when Shadow is trying to fight the control, Purge can be seen dancing in the background.

After rescuing Jaguar and finishing the report, Purge will grade the player depending how well they did in the report. One of three lines can be said depending on your rating:

  • 49% or lower: "I wonder how long you'll last..."
  • 50 to 99%: "Not bad at all!"
  • 100%: "We're going to have fun together..."

Report 6: Purge's T.V. Special! Edit

"Welcome to my very own TV Show! This antenna you gave me is working just great!"

Dancing Purge as seen in the Space Channel 5 Part 2 Guide Book. (Japan Only)

Using the newly finished Ballistic Groove Gun, Purge fires a test run, forcing a whole arena of hostages to dance to his whim. Ulala and her group arrive and start taking on the Mass-produced Peace Carriers and Purge's Bodyguard Robos through a singing battle.

After beating the Robot, Ulala will run onto Purge's stage only to find that she and the rest of her group have been separated by an invisible wall. Purge wants to take Ulala on alone as he reveals his own Super Form: Dancing Purge.

He takes Ulala in a Solo Dance Battle with her Dance Energy slowly charging the Ballistic Groove Gun. Soon enough, Purge reveals his power source to be President Peace trapped in a dome that focuses on his energy. With Ulala, President Peace and the Audience's power free for him to use, Purge creates the Dance Dimension X and becomes Purge the Great. Ulala tries to dodge the attacks, but Purge eventually fires multiple attacks at the same time, presumably killing her, after that he fully charges the Ballistic Groove Gun.

One second before Purge launches the Ballistic Groove Gun, Ulala is brought back to life thanks to the support of everyone helping the dancer and she becomes Super Ulala. With everyone by her side, she takes on Purge the Great once more in a dance battle.

After beating Purge in this battle, she saves President Peace and starts a singing battle against Purge. After beating him, the Dance Dimension is broken and Purge retreats into the Ballistic Groove Gun, now transformed into a satellite. Fuse surprises everyone revealing that he's alive and helps focus the power of the 86,429 fans into one funkified force! Ulala tells Purge that she's had enough of his 'trash TV show's. Jaguar tells him that 'strength without love won't change anything'. Pudding tells Purge that 'he's the one that isn't happy'. Pine tells him that she's 'gonna heal that sick mind of his'.

Purge trapped in the Good Ending.

Missing the last 3 chus in the game has Fuse's antenna fail at the most critical moment as the game cuts to a black screen. It is presumed that Purge wins, but this is not confirmed. Another point of view that could be seen is that both Purge and Fuse's antenna's failed.

Not missing though, will make Purge gets sent into deep space trapped in the Giant P seen earlier in Report 6. With the rogue defeated, the galaxy is finally at peace again.

Purge is seen at the end of the Credits March, showing that he survived. He's strutting like Ulala as he walks to the other side of the screen.

When Purge leaves the screen, he will give one last command to confuse the player and keep them from getting a 200% rating.

Others Edit

The game features two unlockable Purge costumes, one which is his Cloaked Purge outfit, that is unlocked through Ulala's Dance Mode minigame, Purge will appear in the minigame if the player is wearing the Morolian suit as the final challenge, beating him will unlock the outfit, the other one is his Dancing Purge outfit, which is unlocked by cleaning the report 6 on Extra Mode..

Ulala's Channel JEdit


Purge got his own game in Ulala's Channel J, released only in Japan for the Vodaphone called "Purge's Electric Shock Punishment Show", which takes place after the events of Part 2.

  • When playing as Cloaked Purge in report 5, there is a glitch during the Battle of the Bands section that shows his reflection without his goggles.
  • In Report 4, Purge is visually seen losing balance on his hovercraft each time you shoot him.
    • He is able to stay on his hovercraft due to magnetic boots. [4]
  • Purge is the only male Main Character in the series to wear a sleeveless shirt.

  • Purge calls Ulala "sweets" once. After that, he will address her by her name.
  • Purge's name comes from the word purge. There is another usage of the word, in which to purge stands to purify. This makes his name meaningful, as his mission was to purify the masses in a way.
  • The second round with the Purge Hovercraft has Purge yell out his commands much more furiously. In the Japanese version, Purge yells out "Shoot" instead of "Chu" here. This makes Purge the only other character other than Ulala to have the sound of their commands change with the situation. (Ulala would sound more worried when taking on Purge the Great, and more confident when as Super Ulala.)
  • Purge doesn't comprehend love, but he does understand sexual attraction, as shown in UGA's official documents about him where it mentions him feeling "a tiny bit aroused" when he addresses Shadow by his name for the first time.
  • Purge is possibly bisexual, as he sometimes flirts with Ulala and, as mentioned above, is slightly attracted to Shadow.
  • Out of all the villains, Purge is the one who came the closest to win, as Ulala was brough back to life one second before he makes the whole Galaxy dance for him.
  • Purge is the only character besides Ulala to have more than one unlockable outfit.
  • He is responsible for kidnapping Jaguar and brainwashing him into Shadow to do his dirty work.
  • His Japanese voice actor, Akira Ishida is known for voicing Gaara from Naruto, Kuja from Final Fantasy IX, Ienzo/Zexion from the Kingdom Hearts Series and Makoto Yuki/Minato Arisato from Persona 3.
