|This article is about a/an group of villains in Hikari Sentai Maskman.|
Earth Imperial Beasts (地帝獣 Chiteijū) are creatures who are employed by Earth Emperor Zeba and his Underground Empire Tube to attack the surface as part of the group's crusade to conquer it and bring it under his domain.
Many of the Earth Imperial Beasts are actually two creatures working together: a parasitic creature (寄生獣 Kiseijū) and an Earth Imperial Doggler (地帝ドグラー Chitei Dogurā); the parasite gives the creature its first "name", while the "Doggler" gives it the second; all of the Earth Imperial Beasts tend to have the "Doggler" ending most likely because of the Doggler race providing the bodies for the parasite to use. All of these creatures, both the parasites and Dogglers, live within a frozen crypt near the main throne chamber of the Underground Castle of Tube; they are both dethawed when needed and used in combat generally together; though many of the early Dogglers tended to split apart quite often giving the Maskman two opponents to face simultaneously before generally combining together to be finished off. In some cases, an Imperial Beast may be in the crypt as a full physical being instead of a double combination; while others may have been sealed in other measures or remain unsealed while serving members of the Underground court as needed.
All Earth Imperial Beasts have the means to grow into a giant thanks to a special energy emitted by Energy Beast Okelampa that reacts whenever they hit them; however the shot tires Okelampa out forcing it back underground to rest until it is next needed.
