Space Sheriff Gavan: The Movie
On order of Brighton, Zan Vardo traveled to Earth to kidnap Itsuki Kawai so she could be used as a vessel to revive Don Horror. He chased her down but before he could capture her the new Gavan, Geki Jumonji, appeared to rescue her. Geki attacked Zan Vardo but the Makuu general managed to gain the upper hand until Retsu Ichijouji, the original Gavan, intervened and shot at Vardo, enabling Geki to defeat him.
Despite his destruction, Vardo would later respawn inside the derelict Makuu Castle the revived Makuu were using as their base, now possessing an elongated horn on top of his head. After Brighton kidnapped Itsuki and Geki went to rescue her, Vardo appeared alongside Witch Kill to confront him. The new Sharivan and Shaider then appeared to assist the new Gavan and battled the two while Geki went to rescue Itsuki. Vardo fought Shaider and was destroyed again by him.
