Created by the pioneer special effects team Creator/TsuburayaProductions (founded by [[Creator/EijiTsuburaya the man]] who brought Franchise/{{Godzilla}} himself to life) and with the reputation and cultural impact comparable to Franchise/StarWars and Franchise/{{Superman}} in its native land, the live-action Japanese {{toku}}satsu-superhero [[SeriesFranchise franchise]] is a juggernaut spanning through generations since its creation in 1966, rivaling other [[TheVerse 'verses]] with expansive lore and merchandising that go from toys to museums to golf-caddies and beyond.

Based around humans who attain the power of gigantic, light-based alien heroes and fight [[AttackOfThe50FootWhatever attacks of the fifty foot]] [[MonsterOfTheWeek monster/alien of the week]], often with the help of scientific paramilitary organizations with multitude of cool and futuristic gadgets along the way.

Ultraman spawned a mini-genre of half-hour {{Kaiju}} action shows, such as ''Series/AmbassadorMagma'' (''The Space Giants'') which actually came 3 months before ''Ultraman'', ''Johnny Sokko and the Flying Robot'' (a.k.a.: ''Manga/GiantRobo''), and ''Series/{{Spectreman}}'', as well as several shows that extended the Ultraman lore, and helped transitioning {{toku}}satsu from the big screen features dominated by giant destructive monsters to great heroes fighting for peace and justice on television sets.

While many of its aforementioned imitators and successors are quite popular in Japan, no other Kaiju-based shows have been replayed anywhere in syndication as often as ''Ultraman'' in the United States or even hope to receive several attempts at Western adaptations (Ultraman USA, Ultraman Towards the Future, Ultraman The Ultimate Hero, even several attempts at an unmade American Ultraman movie).

The many incarnations over time vary widely over tone, shifting into DarkerAndEdgier territory with ''Ultra Seven'', ''Ultraman Leo'', ''Ultraman Gaia'', and ''Ultraman Nexus''; others, like ''Ultraman Cosmos'' were much LighterAndSofter; finally, series such as ''Ultraman Tiga'' maintained a balance between the two extremes. Tonal shifts were sometimes brought on by ExecutiveMeddling, ie. ''Cosmos'' being toned down due to [[TooSoon current events]] or ''Nexus'' becoming edgier in an attempt to reverse declining ratings.
