An isolated scientific facility is thrown into chaos when a horrific creature tears through its corridors, killing its military personnel. Sara Mizuhara, a leading scientist at the facility, attempts to kill the beast with specially made bullets filled with a special poison. She falters, and the creature escapes...

Shunichi Maki is a First Lieutenant in the Japanese Air Self-Defense Force and pilots F-15 Eagle jets. It's been his dream to do so since he witnessed the "silver meteors" passing overhead as a child, but now he has a new dream. He wishes to be with his family: his wife Yoko and his sickly son Tsugumu. Right before he fully resigns, though, a strange light appears in the sky and he is scrambled with the other pilots to investigate. Unfortunately, his partner has to pull away when the strange light nearly crashes his plane, and Maki then has a head on collision with the light, but little does he know that he is now going to be major part in a battle for the fate of the Earth.

Aliens, possession, giant monsters and lessons about responsibility and fatherly commitments make up this big budget movie that takes a new spin on the beloved character alongside UltramanNexus .

----
!!This flim provides examples of:
* ActionGirl: Sara is pretty tough for a scientist and takes on The One twice.
* AlternateContinuity: In the first place the movie makes no mention of the Ultra Garrison and everyone treats Ultraman and "The One" as the crazy things that they are. In UltramanZeroTheRevengeOfBelial it's revealed that the UltramanNexus universe, and by extension this film, takes place within a wholly different universe than the rest of the Ultra shows!
* {{Backstory}}: For ''UltramanNexus''
* {{Badass}}: Both Ultraman and The One, naturally.
* BigBad: The One.
* DarkIsEvil: The One is a thoroughly dark looking creature, having mostly black colors.
* DarkerAndEdgier: Keeping in tone with Nexus, this film is a pretty realistic take on the series, meaning it's a bit darker than your standard Ultraman fare.
* DemonicPossession: Basically what The One did to his host, Udo.
* TheDeterminator: Maki for sure. [[spoiler: To the point where he survives going past the limits of his body while battling The One at the end.]]
* EldritchAbomination: The One is constantly evolving until it becomes some strange... horrific... doomy thing.
* EvilCounterpart: What with the possession and all of that, The One functions as a twisted version of this particular Ultraman, especially when you realize this one changes and evolves as it changes hosts.
* FinishingMove: The iconic Specium Beam of course!
* GondorCallsForAid: [[spoiler: The military shows up in the nick of time to save Ultraman during the final battle.]]
* HourOfPower: As with all Ultra shows, Ultraman can only stay on Earth for a few minutes. In this case, it's because Maki's body can't take it.
* HowDoIShotWeb: Maki slowly learns how to use his new-found powers, starting off with just beating the hell out of things.
* IAmAHumanitarian: The One.
* IllBoy: Tsuguma has a bad bill of health, which is what spurs Maki to resign from the military.
* MakeMyMonsterGrow: Twice, for both Ultraman and The One. [[spoiler: And the second time is a real growth spurt.]]
* NewPowersAsThePlotDemands: Justified with The One, who absorbs things to gain new abilities and more mass.
* OmnicidalManiac: The One is this through and through.
* TitleDrop: When explaining that the first monster to appear is "The One", Maki asks what Sara and the others will call him. She suggests "the Next." [[spoiler: At the end of the film, people start referring to the mysterious red and silver giant as "Ultraman".]]
* WithGreatPower: A major theme of the movie.
