* ActionGirl: There are female Ultra heroes, like Yulian from ''Series/UltramanEighty'' and Ultrawoman Beth from ''Anime/UltramanTheAdventureBegins'', but it's more commonly seen amongst human characters in later series, like Ryo Yumimura from ''Series/UltramanDyna'', Toba Laiha from ''Series/UltramanGeed'', and Mizuki Koishikawa from ''Series/UltramanMax''. However, it is stated that the Land of Light has gender equality, so its likely there are plenty of unseen female Ultra warriors.

* AliensAndMonsters: The MonsterOfTheWeek is either a giant monster or an alien who can turn giant-sized.

to:

* AliensAndMonsters: The MonsterOfTheWeek is either a giant monster or an alien who can turn giant-sized. Though in a spin on the trope, the heroes are also aliens and many series will feature some friendly or peaceful kaiju and aliens that don't get killed.



* BloodierAndGorier: Creator/EijiTsuburaya generally didn't like the use of blood, however after his death, the series became noticeably more violent and gorier, like ''Series/UltramanAce'' and ''Series/UltramanLeo''. This would be toned down with the Heisei series with some exceptions such as ''[[Series/UltramanNexus Nexus]]''.

to:

* BladeBelowTheShoulder: Quite a few villains and monsters have these, but [[Series/UltramanMebius Ultraman Mebius and Hikari]] are among the few heroic characters to possess one.

** The Heisei ''Ultra Seven'' (Heisei ''Ultra Seven'' and ''Series/UltrasevenX'') and ''Ultra Q'' (''Series/UltraQDarkFantasy'' and ''Series/NeoUltraQ'') series are related to the series they're sequels to, but they're not entirely in the timeline either.

* HornedHumanoid: Some Ultras, like Series/UltramanTaro, Series/UltramanLeo, and the Father of Ultra.



** Some of the monsters are truly Eldritch in nature (like Bullton or Gan Q), you just won't realize it as the Ultras (nearly) always avert their effect. Sometimes though, not even they're immune to the monstrosity.

* MidSeasonUpgrade: It would be more appropriate to say Mid-Series upgrade due to the way Japanese TV airings work, but many Ultras get a new power, a new form, or a new weapon at some point in the middle of the series in order to battle an especially powerful monster. Examples include Series/UltramanMax, Series/UltramanMebius, Series/UltramanOrb, Series/UltramanCosmos, and Series/UltramanGeed.

to:

* MessianicArchetype / TheCape: Most Ultras and their human alter egos are this (especially the earlier ones).

Examples include Series/UltramanMax, Series/UltramanMebius, Series/UltramanOrb, Series/UltramanCosmos, and Series/UltramanGeed.



* NamedAfterTheirPlanet: The reason why almost all the alien foes of the Ultras are called "Alien ____" (or "____ Seijin" in Japanese). A notable exceptions is Dada from ''Series/{{Ultraman}}'', although Kemur-Man from ''Series/UltraQ'' uses a different style, but the same convention.
* NewPowersAsThePlotDemands: Although the Ultras always have a set base of powers, many develop and use one-shot attacks for specific monsters that are never seen again, or, even, completely pointless in the face of a preexisting one. And each time they would re-appear in another series, they'd only have the base powers they were known for. However, the worst offender is [[Series/ReturnOfUltraman Ultraman Jack]]'s Ultra Bracelet, which can shapeshift into whatever is needed at the time. It even revived him from the dead when he was dismembered by the monster Snowgon! But as a rule of thumb, it seems to be that Ultras prefer to use their conventional abilities, ''only'' using their "new powers" if it is absolutely critical for defeating the MonsterOfTheWeek.
* NonMaliciousMonster / BenevolentMonsters: Some series feature these, particularly ''Series/UltramanCosmos''. Pigmon is also very well known as an example of the latter trope.

** Recurring monsters are also prone to this, showing off abilities in later series that they never displayed in earlier appearances. Gomora's Super Oscillatory Wave introduced in ''Series/UltraGalaxyMegaMonsterBattle'' is a good example of this.
* NonMaliciousMonster / BenevolentMonsters: Some Many series feature these, particularly notably ''Series/UltramanCosmos''. Pigmon Pigmon[[SpellMyNameWithAnS /Pygmon]] is also very well known as an example of the latter trope.



* PsychoticSmirk: Often whoever's the EvilKnockoff of the titular giant makes this expression. Some kaiju seem to enjoy doing this too, Enomena from ''Series/UltramanTiga'' being a prime example, thanks to the wonders of CGI.

* SlasherSmile: Some kaiju manage to pull this off beyond just being toothy. Gazote ([[SpellMyNameWithAnS Gazort or Gazoto]]) and Algyuros/Fake Agul glide smoothly into mind.



* SuperPoweredAlterEgo: Although how much the Ultras and humans share the body varies. In some, like [[Series/UltramanTiga Daigo Madoka]] and [[Series/UltramanGaia Gamu Takayama]], the Ultra side is dormant until they transform. In others, like [[Series/{{Ultraman}} Shin Hayata]] and [[Series/ReturnOfUltraman Hideki Goh]], it seems to be that the Ultras are dominant.

[[Series/UltramanGeed Leito Igaguri]] presents an interesting case in that Franchise/UltramanZero can take full control of Leito's body whenever he wishes.


Added DiffLines:

* SymbioticPossession: Most Ultras do this, for when times get too tough, their human hosts can call upon their power to save the day.
