* HeyItsThatGuy
** Lots of ''Series/{{Ultraman}}'' cast members appear from time to time:
*** What's Arashi doing in this team? Really, did he have a twin? [[FridgeBrilliance Or maybe he and Furuhashi are alien clones?]]
*** Fuji plays Sanae, a friend of Anne's, in the controversial Episode 12.
*** In "Who are You?", Captain Muramatsu goes home from work, [[UnPerson only to find nobody recognizes him, not even his wife]]...
*** Ide rides in a submarine in "Envoy from Nonmalto".
*** Dr. Iwamoto is now at TPC (higher headquarters).
** Also, isn't the scientist in "The Lonely Earthling" [[YouLookFamiliar played by the same actor who also plays]] the [[spoiler:Robot Commander android]] in "Nightmare on the Fourth Planet", and [[spoiler:Alien Knackle's human form]] in ''Series/ReturnOfUltraman''?
** As far as suit actors go, [[Series/{{Ultraman}} Bin Furuya]] as Amagi. [[Franchise/{{Godzilla}} Haruo Nakajima]] played Yutom the robot.
** [[Series/{{Spectreman}} Kohji Uenishi]] is Series/UltraSeven. [[Series/ReturnOfUltraman Eiichi Kikuchi]] donned the suit in "The Ultra Garrison Goes West" two-parter.
** Dr. Kitamura from Episode 22 and the beginning of Episode 49 turns up as [[ChekhovsGunman that other doctor]] in ''Series/ReturnOfUltraman''

** [[Franchise/{{Godzilla}} Dr. Serizawa]] turned up, minus eyepatch, in the first episode.
* HeyItsThatVoice
** In the Spanish dub, Kiriyama is [[{{Film/Superman}} Clark Kent]]! Dan and Anne were [[{{Film/StarWars}} Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia]], respectively (for a while, anyway), and [[{{Series/Batman}} Robin the Boy Wonder]] was both Furuhashi and the Narrator.
** When [[spoiler:Alien Metron]] returns in ''Series/UltramanMax'', the actor who played his voice in his original appearance reprises his role, even in human form.
** Narrator Hikaru Urano was the voice actor for Creator/JimmyStewart. Urano also narrated ''{{Series/Mirrorman}}'' and ''{{Series/Ultraman}}''.
** When Seven returned in the 1994 video episode and henceforth, Kohji Moritsugu himself became TheNarrator.
** Agira's first appearance had him possessing Film/{{Rodan}}'s roar while his second appearance was Franchise/{{Gamera}}'s. Windam is [[Film/KingKongEscapes Mechani-Kong]] and Eleking is [[Film/SonOfGodzilla Kamacuras]]. Alien Guts uses [[Series/{{Ultraman}} Dada]]'s roar-like groans.

** Was originally supposed to be a more hard sci-fi show similar to ''Series/LostInSpace'' called ''The Ultra Garrison'', but TBS urged a rewrite due to being too similar to rival show ''Captain Ultra'', and the show was turned into ''[[WorkingTitle Ultra Eye]]'', where Dan was supposed to transform into Redman, who was also [[SpinOffspring Ultraman Junior]]. The Capsule Monsters were supposed to be kaiju from ''Series/UltraQ'' and ''Series/{{Ultraman}}'', but Tsuburaya wanted to do more with their budget, so the capsule monsters became new monsters. ''Ultra Eye'' was reworked into ''Ultra Seven'' and the rest is history.

** "From Another Planet With Love" was banned in the 1970s after a support group for atomic bomb survivors complained about comparisons between bomb victims and Spehl Aliens.

** "From Another Planet With Love" was banned in the 1970s after a support group for atomic bomb survivors complained about comparisons between bomb victims and Spehl Aliens.[[note]]That's literal, by the way - the episode was actually rerun several times without incident or comment, but a third party published a set of cards that happened to describe Spehl-Seijin as "A-Bomb Survivor Spehl-Seijin" (which isn't inaccurate, but can really only invite bad-taste comparisons). Tsuburaya banned the episode outright as a result of the controversy, as well as all elements from it.[[/note]]



* MissingEpisode: Ultra Seven is this and then some. Tsuburaya has a self-imposed ban on Episode 12. Out of the Hawaiian Dub, only episodes 21, 22, and 35 survived. In the Cinar/Turner dub, all episodes were dubbed, but between 1985 and 1994, Turner's own video copies of episodes 5, 6, and 7 disappeared. Strangely enough, the banned Episode 12 was dubbed and broadcast in the States, and can even be found online. Nowadays, "Super Weapon R-1" is banned due to parallels to the Fukushima-Daiichi disaster.

* BadExportForYou: It's nice to have it on R1, but the set itself lies and says its mono, when it's really a 5.1 remix with new sound effects, and the video is taken from basically ripping the R2s.
