Abauta of the Research is a dobsonfly-themed alien working for the Universal Annihilation Army Warstar, able to observe and research of an opponent, to avoid the same attacks his opponents make. Also he is the main antagonist in episode 7 of the 2010 TV series Tensou Sentai Goseiger.
He was voiced by Akio Nojima.
Abauta is brought to Earth by Mons Drake to study it and find the proper information to deal both with the planet and with the Gosei Angels protecting it. In his initial battle, he takes all of the Goseigers attacks in order to study their methods and see a way to defeat them.
By the time his research is completed, Abauta's decided method is to destroy the planet's plant life, thus depriving Earth of oxygen and killing all lifeforms. The Goseiger try to fight him but his study of their weapons and methods were enough to defeat all three tribes with ease. However Agri, through his studying with a farmer, uses the methods of how to pull and take care of daikon radishes to attack Abauta, ultimately slashing him with a hoeing method with his Landick Axe to damage him and forcing Buredoran to grow him with the Bibi Bugs.
As a giant, Abauta realizes instantly that the weakness of Gosei Great is the legs controlled by Gosei Snake, making it attack only for Gosei Black to summon the Landick Brothers to prevent the attack from going through. Forming Landick Gosei Great, the Goseiger make quick work of the researcher.
