''Ultraman Gaia'' takes place in yet another universe, one that is totally different from the world of the original Ultramen(the inhabitants of the Land of Light), as well as the world of ''Series/UltramanTiga'' and ''Series/UltramanDyna''. It is the first series to feature two Ultramen as the main characters -- Ultraman Gaia and Ultraman Agul, [[RedOniBlueOni both having conflicting philosophies in regards to defending the Earth]] from a mysterious, malevolent and extremely intelligent cosmic entity.

* LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters: Probably holds the record for being the {{Franchise/Ultra Series}} with the most number of characters. This trope comes into play mainly due to the nature of XIG. Unlike the defense teams of previous entries in the {{Franchise/Ultra Series}} which usually has one team of about five members as the sole focus of the series, XIG consists of multiple three-person teams with specialized roles. There are also three commanders and three {{Bridge Bunnies}}(though one is a support recruit). Then there are the members of G.U.A.R.D.(the American division and the Japanese division). Then there is the trio from KCB, the Alchemy Stars Network and Gamu's peers at Jounan University. And the list goes on.

** Before Gamu using his Esplender to store Gaia's essence, Gamu transform into Gaia with a photoelectron tube, mirroring [[Series/{{Ultraman}} Shin Hayata's transformation as Ultraman via Beta Capsule]].

* SecretChaser: Kenji, Reiko, and Michifumi from KCB are constantly trying to uncover the identity of both Ultramen and the true cause of the wave of monsters. They end up succeeding with dire consequences. [[spoiler:: Gamu and Hiroya's de-transformation are broadcast to the world.]]

* AIIsACrapshoot: The CRISIS integrated-circuit supercomputer. Although it manages to predict in 1997 that Earth would be annihilated by something known as "Kongenteki Hametsu Shorai Tai" (Entity that Brings Radical Destruction), it calculations had been sabotaged by the monster Zorlim, and it gets infected by a computer virus in episode 27.

* BadassBookworm: Gamu Takayama. A scientist who can assume a superhero form to fight monsters. Hiroya Fujimiya too, but Gamu is the more obvious example. Something of a subversion for the franchise, as this is only time TheSmartGuy(s) transforms into the Ultra until Ultraman X.

** In episode 24, just as Gaia is about to perform his {{Finishing Move}} on Zonnel II, he recalls the agonizing last moments of C.O.V. (episode 1), Psycho Mezard II (episode 19) and Pazuzu (episode 22). He decides not to destroy Zonnel II, instead using a beam to calm the kaijiu.

* TransformationTrinket: Gaia's Esplender and Agul's Agulator.

to:

* TransformationTrinket: Gaia's Esplender and Agul's Agulator. The Esplender (and likely the Agulator) is unique in that it's the only Ultra TransformationTrinket to be made by a human instead of given to them by the Ultra.

** Episode 5 feature monster call Bokurag. The direct-to-DVD ''Once again Gaia'' has a flying monster called Byakhee and underwater city Celephais. Yeah, tributes to Franchise/CthulhuMythos.
