* AliensSpeakingEnglish: This trope is played with rather unclearly. While the audience hears the Ultras speaking Japanese and their host can understand them, they rarely ever speak while transformed (except their characteristic shouts) and even when they ''do'' talk, it's normally to each other and on occasion humans watching simply won't hear what they're saying. In Ultraman Max, the rest of DASH asks Kaito if he 'understands their language' after he explains what Max and his superior were talking about, implying humans didn't understand the conversation.

Aparently, the Ultras comunicate via telepathy, and most humans simply lack this capacity.
** Made all the more confusing by the fact the invading enemy aliens often play this trope straight and almost always speak fluent Japanese.
** In Mega Monster Battle, Belial speaks to Rei, who is a human, and Rei himself clearly understands him, which may clear some doubts on the matter.
