His true form is the monster Lethal Doggler, whose parent was killed by the original Tube Royal family for attempting to take over the throne. Lethal Doggler the 1st managed to spawn an egg that resulted in Lethal Doggler the 2nd's birth. Lethal Doggler the first allowed his son to eat him to make his son stronger. Lethal Doggler the 2nd grew with nothing on its mind but revenge, disguising itself as Zeba and infiltrating his way into the Igam kingdom. Upon assuming the throne, Zeba corrupts it into a violent kingdom where strength rules all, and enslaves the underground humans.

After one failure too many, Baraba is sentenced to death by the Emperor Zeba and is told that he can only redeem himself by destroying the Maskman. He makes a deal with Kiros and gets the Princess Ial as a hostage without knowing that Kiros had other plans. When this happens, he is later turned down by his underling Oyubu for despising the Emperor's methods. He challenged Red Mask into a final duel between the two of them. He was killed by his rival Red Mask. Baraba's warrior stereotype is clearly similar to Adjuntant Booba from Changeman, and also Baraba is a biblical name, referring to one of the two thieves who witnessed Jesus Christ's crucification.

She revives the Igam Dragon, who was a peaceful being who once served the Igam no matter what the situation, and forced it to fight with her against the Maskmen. Amongst her abilities is the Death Ring, an electrified force field which leaves her tired and drained of energy. Later Red Mask was hesitant when her true identity was exposed before them. She became a Buddhist nun in the finale of the series to repent for her sins, while leaving her sister to become the new heir to the Igam kingdom.

After this, he makes an agreement with Zeba in which after he will defeat the Maskman by any means if they let him have Ial. He steals the imprisoned Ial and kidnaps Oyobu and offers him any of the treasure he has stolen if he could melt Ial. Oyobu refuses and Igam and her army arrive shortly with orders to eliminate Ial and Kiros is mortally wounded in an attempt to protect her. He dies after seeing Takeru and Ial reunite. He lived and died for what he thought was love.
    * Energy Beast Okelampa (エネルギー獣オケランパ, Enerugījū Okeranpa?) - A bug/mollusk hybrid that emerges when the monsters of the Tube Empire were always destroyed by the Maskman. With its ray, the Doggler monsters were enlarged. The only dialogue spoken each episode by Okelampa, after tiring from firing his ray of enlargement, is "yare-yare" ("Good heavens!") His last appearance was in episode 50, when he enlarged Anagumas. What happens to him later is unknown.
    * Princess Ial (イアル姫, Iaru-hime?) / Mio (美緒, Mio?) - She is the twin sister of Igam, sent by Tube as a spy aboveground, when she met and fell in love with Takeru.

    Ito ang mga bayaning, magiting
    Walang takot, sa bangis ng kalaba'y di umuurong
    Matatag na tagapagtanggol, ng inaapi
    Mga huwaran, sa tungkuli'y tapat
    Nakahandang mag-alay ng buhay

    Ang mga masukuman tanod ng kapayapaan
    Ang mga masukuman laging maaasahan
    Dapat nating tularan, ang kagitingan
    Laser Squadron Maskuman, Masukuman!

    Humanda na kayo
    Kampon ng kadiliman
    Oras na ng pagtotoos
    Kasamaaan niyo’y dapat matapos
    Narito na sila

    Bayaning tagapangtanggol
    Sa masama’y lilipol
    Kayo lang ang pagasa
    Iligtas kami sa marahas na kadiliman
    Kami’y inyong ipaglaban
    Sigi sigi laban Maskman
    Ipagtangggol ang kapayapaan
    Sugod sugod laban Maskman ipagsanggalang ninyo ang katarungan
    Buong mundo’y magpupuri’t magpupugay mabuhay
    Laser Squadron Mas…ku…man
