** Zetton [[spoiler: ''killing Ultraman'' in the finale was bad enough, but then when Zoffy comes to pick Ultraman up he begs his senior Ultra to let him die and give his life to his host Hayata instead. Luckily Zoffy [[ContrivedConvenience happened to bring two lives along]] when he came to pick Ultraman up, but there's still the fact that Ultraman has to leave Earth ''forever'' afterwards.]]

--->'''Ultraman:''' [[spoiler: Zoffy... I would like to leave Earth by giving my life... To Hayata then.]]
--->'''Zoffy:''' [[spoiler: You don't care if you die?]]
--->'''Ultraman:''' [[spoiler: No, I don't. I've already lived for 20,000 years. Earthling's lives are very short. And Hayata is still very young. I don't want him to be a victim.]]

**Meta-example: After the finale aired in which Zoffy returns Ultraman back to the M78 nebula after his fight with Zetton, many children throughout Japan were reported to have [[TearJerker gone by their windows and wave "Goodbye Ultraman" to the sky.]]

* HellIsThatNoise: Alien Baltan's laugh[[note]]FWO FWO FWO FWO... MUO-FWO FWO FWO FWO FWO...[[/note]], which is so distinctive that it has a high chance of resonating inside viewers' heads for eternity. It's even this trope ''in universe''.

* GenreTurningPoint: It's difficult to overstate just how much this show rebuilt and codified the {{Kaiju}} genre. Whereas before, a giant monster coming out of the sea to wreck up the place would be like a typhoon or hurricane: unstoppable, and the little humans scurrying away from it could only hope to rebuild afterwards or put up token resistance. The cost of stopping one would be horrendously high Film/({{Gojira}}) or worryingly public (Film/KingKong), requiring military deployment. From ''this'' show onwards, it became entirely believable that those little humans could fight back on their own terms, and do it [[MonsterOfTheWeek once a friggin' week]] at that. Oh, and the big guy on Earth's side - the idea that Earth could have external, fairly long-lasting help from elsewhere - is also a nice change of pace.

* ShoutOut: Hayata using a spoon instead of the Beta Capsule (he was in a restaurant and rushed out to engage) is possibly the inspiration for TheTick using "Spoon!" as a battlecry.
