Ultra Seven

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ultraseven_movie_i.png

Suit Actor: Kohji Uenishinote , Voiced by: Kohji Moritsugu

The second hero of the Land of Light (or the first and only in the Heisei continuity), Ultra Seven (or Ultraseven, either is acceptable) was originally sent to map the Milky Way for M78. He found himself attracted to Earth and went there, rescuing a brave man named Jiro Satsuma and taking on the human's form with the alias Dan Moroboshi. He joined Ultra garrison after assiting them defeat an invasion force from Alien Cool and would assist them in many adventures. Since his debut, Ultraseven has become an important character in the franchise, possibly even more than the original Ultraman! He was the first Ultra to appear outside his own series when he assisted Jack against Bemstar in Return of Ultraman and later returned as a major character in Ultraman Leo. His biggest contribution to the franchise's history though is probably his son, Ultraman Zero, who would go onto become one of the most powerful heroes in Ultraman history and star in a few movies and several specials.
  • Abnormal Ammo: Shrank down to about an inch high, ran into Furuhashi's BFG, and let Furuhashi fire the next round, all to destroy Crazygon.
  • Anatomy Arsenal
    • The Eye Slugger from the top of his head, by itself, with energy, and combined with telekinesis
    • The Emerium Beam lamp from his forehead which also acts as his Colour Timer
    • His L-shaped Wide Shot from his right forearm
    • His eyes can see invisible aliens
    • Knife and shuriken-shaped energy blasts from his hands
    • A spiral beam from an outstretched arm
  • Badass: His son, Zero, and pupil, Leo, inherited it!
  • Cerebus Retcon: In Episode 48, he had nearly run out of energy due to past injuries. Nothing in previous episodes mentioned this.
  • Dented Iron: As noted above all of his previous battles caught up with him and he was in terrible shape by the end of the series, as opposed the Ultra Crusader who came before him who had no such problems.
  • Evil Doppelganger: Robot Ultraseven, Delusion Ultraseven in Ultraman Eighty, Dark Seven in Ultraman Ginga
  • Heroic Safe Mode: In Ultraman Leo, after losing the ability to transform, he became focused on the mission and on training Gen, not on himself or collateral damage.
  • Humanoid Aliens: Like all Ultramen, he has a human-shaped body
  • Impossibly Cool Weapon: The Eye Slugger
  • Improbable Weapon User: Flew out of Furuhashi's gun to defeat Crazygon.
  • Kryptonite Factor: Extreme cold. Also, he could run out of energy if he overexerts himself.
  • One Hero, Hold the Weaksauce: He lacked a Color Timer (or a time limit in his true form, for that matter), unlike his predecessor. The fact that the light panel on his chest and shoulders can collect solar energy as needed made him more powerful in comparison.
    • Somewhat averted because unlike the original Ultraman He was weakened by extreme cold and could still run out of energy and sustain severe injuries if faced with a powerful enough enemy. Also unlike the original Ultraman his injuries stacked up overtime to the point where he was on death's door in the last two episodes, whereas the original was stronger by comparison because he was still fighting fit when he faced his final opponent.
  • Off with His Head!: Seven's main use for the Eye Slugger was decapitation.
  • Precision-Guided Boomerang: How The Eye Slugger behaves
  • Sizeshifter: From micro-sized to several hundred feet
  • Super Strength: Almost on par with Ultraman's.
  • Telekinesis: Was able to levitate kaijuu, as well as control the Eye Slugger this way
  • Telepathy: He talked to other aliens this way
  • Teleporters and Transporters: Limited ability, used in Episode 18.
  • Voluntary Shapeshifting/Humanshifting: From human to his M78 form and back
  • You Are Number 6: Stationary Post Observer # 340, UG member # 6.

Amagi

Anne Yuri

    Capsule Monsters 
These three monsters are used by Dan whenever he is incapable of transforming into Ultraseven for some reason. Although only appearing in a handful of episodes, they've become very popular and make regular reappearances in the franchise.
  • Breakout Character: Miclas and Windam more than Agira, but all three are among the most well-remembered monsters from Ultraseven even if they only appeared in a total of 7 episodes.
  • Buttmonkey: All 3 in their original appearances. They never won any battles and largely served as punching bags for the aliens and monster until Dan could turn into Ultraseven. Finally lifted from them in Ultraman Mebius and climaxed in in Mega Monster Battle: Ultra Galaxy Legends where Windam beats Salamandoras, Miclas defeats Bemstar, and Agira kills Dorako with no help from the Ultra heroes or Rei's Gomora.
  • Hour of Power: In Ultraman Mebius they can only be active for 1 minute before returning to recharge.
  • Mons: Beating Pokemon by some 20+ years!
  • Pet Monstrosity: A rare non-evil example towards Ultraseven/Dan.
  • Sealed Good in a Can: Lived in small capsules that Dan carried in a case. When Dan needed to slow his enemies down, he threw a capsule into the distance and one of these kaiju would appear. This would be used again in Ultraman Mebius.
  • Undying Loyalty: To Dan and GUYS.

Windam

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/windom_movie_ii.png

First Appearance: The Invisible Invader

The first capsule monster we're introduced to, Windam is robotic creature from the planet Metal in M78 (the home galaxy of the Ultramen). Dan first unleashed Windam to destroy Alien Cool's spaceship armada, which it did successfully, using the laser from its forehead. The aliens' retaliation forced Dan to call Windam back. He released Windam again to destroy Alien Kanan's lighthouse spaceship, but the aliens mind controlled the robotic titan and used him to battle Ultraseven. Fortunately, Seven managed to outwit his monster, breaking the hypnosis and calling him back. Windam met his end at the hand of Alien Guts, who used his spaceship to blast Windam into scrap metal.

Despite his untimely death, Windam has returned many times in the Ultra Series, most prominently in Ultraman Mebius as one of GUYS Maquette Monsters. Later in Mebius, GUYS gives Windam an elemental upgrade that transforms him into Fire Windam.

Miclas

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/miclas_movie.png

First Appearance: The Secret of the Lake

A horned monster from the planet Buffalo in M78, Miclas is the most popular of the Capsule Monsters. He was first seen battling Eleking while Dan searched for his stolen Ultra Eye. Eleking got the upper hand, and Dan was forced to call Miclas to safety. Later, Dan encountered Gandar and called Miclas once more while he rummaged the snow for his Ultra Eye. Miclas fought well, but Gandar overpowered him and left him to freeze to death in the snow. After Ultraseven killed the ice monster, he called Miclas back to his capsule for safekeeping.

Miclas has made many reappearances since. In that time, he's been given characterization as timid until riled up by a strong but benevolent master. He was the first Maquette Monster chosen by GUYS for their operations, but he proved to be too cowardly to fight anything until they upgraded him with some of Eleking's electrical abilities from the database. He also returned as one of Rei's monsters after the death of his Eleking, specially given to him by Ultraseven.
  • A Load of Bull: Reminiscent of a bipedal bison.
  • Arch-Enemy: Eleking and Kelbeam are typically associated as his opponents. The former is also referenced in Ultraman Mebius when its theorized that Lim. Eleking was the result of Miclas rejecting some of the upgrade information due to memories of the battle with Eleking.
  • The Big Guy: Most likely to use sheer force.
  • Breath Weapon: Ultra Seven is the only series in which Miclas possesses one of these. He can fire a red Heat Ray from his mouth.
  • Cowardly Lion: His behaviour since Ultraman Mebius. His previous personality was retconned to explain that a strong leader (like Ultraseven) can keep Miclas from chickening out quickly.
  • Invisibility: Eleking wasn't the only monster GUYS upgraded Miclas with! They also added Neronga's giving Miclas his invisibility powers.
  • Shock and Awe: As Eleki-Miclas, he can grasp opponents to deliver a powerful shock and shoot lightning from his horns.
  • Sleep-Mode Size: In Ultraman Mebius.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": Miclas, Mikulas, Miklas, Miculas....
  • Spring Jump: Can jump very high and very well. His landing is another story...
  • Took a Level in Badass: As Eleki-Miclas, he's given some electrical powers and invisibility! He was even able to stand up to Bogal!
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: He disappeared after Episode 25.

Agira

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/agira_lgnds_8.png

First Appearance: The Wandering Planet

A dinosaur-like beast from the planet Animal in M78, Agira was first used to fight the monster Rigger, which he did until Dan was able to transform into Ultraseven. He was later called forth to battle Alien Salome's Robot Ultraseven. This didn't work out so well as Agira was left confused and hurt that his master was attacking him. Eventually, Dan retrieved his Ultra Eye and called Agira back to do the fighting himself.

Agira did not appear in Ultraman Mebius like Miclas and Windam, nor was he in the Heisei Ultraseven series, but later reappeared in Mega Monster Battle:Ultra Galaxy Legends.
  • Badass Normal: Despite possessing no powers (beyond the supposed super speed below), Agira is more than capable of battling other monsters with no trouble.
  • Everything's Better with Dinosaurs: Resemble a bipedal one-horned triceratops.
  • Fearless Fool: Will charge right into battle against any monster, no matter how powerful.
  • Spell Myname With An S: Agila has also be used.
  • Super Speed: According to supplementary sources, Agira possesses this, but has yet to actually use it in combat.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: The ending of his second and last fight in the series (against Robot Ultraseven) is rather abrupt.

    Monsters and Aliens 

Alien Cool

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/alien_cool.png

First Appearance: The Invisible Invader

The very first opponent of Ultraseven, Alien Cool invaded Earth with an invisible spaceship, kidnapping humans and holding them hostage. When Earth refused to submit to his demands, he sent his invasion fleet to decimate Japan. Ultra Garrison sent their planes after the aliens and Dan Moroboshi sent Windam to fight. They managed to down the spaceships, but the leader refused to surrender. So Dan transformed into Ultraseven and flew into Cool's ship, freeing the hostages and slicing the alien in two with his Eye Slugger.

Alien Wyann

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ultrsvn_aln_wyn.png

First Appearance: The Green Terror

This plant-like alien came to Earth in search of blood. Kidnapping an Ultra Garrison member and impersonating him, he would transform into his true form every night to feed on blood. Soon, dozens of Wyanns were attacking people left and right, infecting them too. Ultra Garrison managed to discover the real UG member's location and Wyann changed tactics. He turned giant-sized and Ultraseven fought him. The battle was brief and Wyann ended up being sliced in two.

Alien Pitt

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/alienpitt.jpg

First Appearance: The Secret of the Lake

The Pitts came to Earth disguised as cute twin girls. They placed their larval Eleking in a nearby lake for safekeeping and turned their attention to investigating Ultra Garrison members. One stole Dan's Ultra Eye while the other faking illness to be taken in by Ultra Garrison for healthcare. Inside the base, she sabotaged the controls while the other called forth Eleking. After Dan got his Ultra Eye back and killed Eleking, he turned his attention on their fleeing spacecraft, destroying them and their spaceship. The Pitts have made a few more appearances in the franchise, always in association with Eleking.

Eleking

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/eleking.png

First Appearance: The Secret of the Lake

The monster used by the Pitts to conquer Earth, Eleking was hidden as a tadpole in the lake near their ship biding his time. When the Pitts were ready, they called forth Eleking, now fully matured, to destroy all opposition. Dan sent Miclas to battle the electric monster, but the buffalo-like beast was overpowered. Even Ultra Garrison was having trouble halting its march. When Dan got his Ultra Eye back from the Pitts, he headed into battle as Ultraseven, quickly defeating the monster.

Eleking is one of the most popular monsters in the Ultra Series, making numerous appearances. He was even one of Rei's monsters in Ultra Galaxy until Eleking's untimely death at the hands of Grande's Tyrant. He has also received new powers, an EX form, and a chibi form.

Alien Godola

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/alien_godola_i.png

First Appearance: Respond, Max!

The dastardly Godolas were abducting ships at sea. Ultra Garrison got hold of the news and sent in some members to investigate. Of course, they were kidnapped too, while Dan encountered a strange lady who knocked him out and stole his Ultra Eye. Later Dan encountered that individual in the UG engine room where she planted a bomb and imprisoned Dan, leaving him to die in the base-destroying explosion. Dan escaped though, killing the bomber and transforming into Ultraseven! He then went after the Godola leader, fighting him and winning before heading into space to kill off the remaining aliens and save the kidnapped UG members.

Alien Bira

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/bira_i.png

First Appearance: The Erased Time

The Bira were interested in universal domination and Earth was their next target. The froze time and transformed UG scienstist Dr. Yushima into their minion. They used him to sabotage Ultra Garrison headquarters, but Dan's alien powers let him see through the doctor's masquerade. However, the Bira's minion pinned the blame on Dan, saying that he was an alien double-agent in disguise. Ultra Garrison imprisoned Dan, but were forced to leave for battle when the Bira fleet began to invade. In that time, Dan transformed into Ultraseven, breaking out of the prison and knowcking Dr. Yushima out. He then turned his attention to the aliens, destroying as many spaceships as he could before chopping their leader in two with the Eye Slugger.

Alien Pegassa

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/pegassa_5_5.jpg

First Appearance: Dark Zone

The Pegassa were forced to flee their homeworld many years ago, building a space city that became the grandest civilisation in the universe. However, their city's engines malfunctioned, sending them on collision course with Earth. One of them came to UG headquarters to request that humanity adjust Earth's orbit. Of course, humans weren't capable of such a feat, so the Pegassa hatched a plan to blow up Earth. Meanwhile, UG attempted to contact the Pegassa city to evacuate its occupants, but got no response. They were forced to blow up the city to save Earth, killing all it inhabitants. The remaining Pegassa, unaware of this, carried out his superiors' plans. When Dan arrived to tell him, he was furious, planting a bomb that would drill through the Earth's crust and blow up the core. Dan fought him as Ultraseven, injuring the alien and forcing him to flee. Seven then got the bomb and took it to the safety of space while the last Pegassa was never heard from again.
  • Anti-Villain: Although very condescending to more primitive species, they were just wanting to protect their doomed city.
  • Casting a Shadow: Showed the ability to cloak himself in shadows.

  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: They simply wanted to save their skins from total destruction even if it meant blowing up Earth!

  • What Measure Is a Non-Human?: A major element of them was the moral dilemma between blowing up the city or blowing up the planet and the city.

Alien Quraso

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/quraso.png

First Appearance: Alien Prisoner 303

A homicidal maniac from a distant world, Alien Quraso came to Earth to escape his planet's lawmen. There, he made a life out of murdering humans and guzzling down any available gasoline he could find. UG received word on these murders and later from Quraso's people on the situation. They eventually found the alien, but he escaped in one of UG's cars, kidnapping Anne. He forced Anne to take on the Ultra Hawks, taking off. UG went after him and Dan managed to board the stolen aircraft. Quraso's flames set the plane of fire and tumbling to the ground. In the chaos, Dan transformed into Ultraseven flying out of the plane with Anne in hands. Quraso crashed down with his plane, burning to death in the wreckage. Earth began to develop friendly relations with Planet Quraso afterwards.

Alien Metron

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ultrsvn_aln_mtrn.png

First Appearance: The Targeted Town

In the small town of Kitegawa, people were suddenly going berserk and attacking others in brief but violent rampages. UG investigated and, while Dan was attacked by a driverless truck and warned not to interfere, Soga and Furuhashi found nothing, but they brought some local cigarettes back to base. At base, they took smokes and began to behave just like the townspeople from earlier. Studying the cigarettes, UG found an alien substance in them and sent Dan to take a look. He followed it back to a cigarette dealer who turned out to be Alien Metron in disguise. The two battled each other and Metron eventually fled, only to be destroyed by Ultraseven's Emerium Beam.

Alien Metron is one of the most iconic aliens in Ultraseven, earning him numerous appearances in the franchise notably Ultraman Ace, Ultraman Max, and Ultraman Ginga S. The latter also introduced a non-evil Metron named Jace while the Max appearance was one big Shout-Out to his original one.
  • Affably Evil: Very friendly and polite to the point of having a cup of tea with the characters.
  • Avenging the Villain: Metron Jr. from Ultraman Ace.
  • But Now I Must Go: What happens to him in Max is that his people finally come back to pick him up.
  • Flaw Exploitation: Using the human tendency to turn to violence to his advantage, but in Max, he decides that humans are already doomed, so he quit the plans to go home.
  • Half the Man He Used to Be: In Seven and Ace.
  • Hate Plague: In Seven, he plants little crystals inside cigarettes that makes people go crazy, and in Max, he's doing it with cellphones.
  • Heel–Face Turn: Jace from Ultraman Ginga S was a former minion of Alien Chibu Exceller until meeting an Earth pop star he fell in love with.
  • Humans Are the Real Monsters: Believes this in Ultraman Max to the point where he decides not to conquer Earth.
  • No Mouth: Has a series of yellow patches that flashes when he talks! Metron Jr. had a mouth though.
  • Nobody Could Have Survived That: Never mind that Ultraseven doesn't even take place in the same universe as Max, there's no way the original Metron could have survived being chopped in half, shot with a laser beam, and knocked from hundreds of feet in the sky!
  • Not Quite Dead: Turns out to be quite alive and well in Max.
  • Starfish Aliens: Meant to resemble an upright shellfish of some sort.
  • Villain Team-Up: With Doragory and Muruchi in Ultraman Ace. Has also been seen controlling Vakishim and Doragory in Ultra Galaxy Mega Monster battle

Alien Chibu

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/alien_chibu_ginga_s_5.png

First Appearance: Android Zero Directive

Disguising himself as an elderly toymaker, Alien Chibu sold disturbingly realistic toy weapons and little badges to children while sending his Android 01 to try assassinate Dan. UG investigated the assassination attempts and found that the badges worn by the android were same as those of the children. Following the source back to the toymaker, he revealed that they would mind control children into soldiers to kill adults and then tried to kill Dan and Amagi with living toy tanks and planes. Dan turned into Ultraseven and killed Android 01 while Chibu transformed into his true form. The battle was brief and ended with Seven victorious and the Earth safe once more.

Although having a relatively minor appearance, an Alien Chibu named Exceller was used as the Big Bad of Ultraman Ginga S where he is attempting to revive the previous one, Dark Lugiel. Once again he is accompanied by Android 01 (or One-Zero in this case) until her Heel–Face Turn, and commands various alien minions with Spark Dolls to defeat Ultramen Ginga and Victory.

Android 01

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/zero_one.png

First Appearance: Android Zero Directive

Alien Chibu's servant, Android 01 was sent to try assassinate Ultraseven as Dan, but she failed. Undeterred, her master later used her to kill Dan again when they met in the middle of the night. Dan transformed into Ultraseven and killed her with his Emerium Beam.

In Ultraman Ginga S, Android 01 is referred as Android 10, but goes by the name of Mana later on. The robot girl carries a similar role to her original appearance otherwise. She changed sides midway through the series, eventually climaxing in her Heroic Sacrifice. Tropes for her will go on Ultraman Ginga though.

Alien Icarus

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/icary.JPG

First Appearance: The Suspicious Neighbour

Disguised as a human, Alien Icarus moved into a house, working away at a piece of technology that would allow him and his homeworld's troops to get to earth through another dimension. A sick boy living next door noticed the odd activity and UG was called over. They did not believe him until they saw a dead bird floating in midair - a side effect of the alien's work. So, Icarus kidnapped Dan and imprisoned him in the fourth dimension, leaving Dan unable to transform while the aliens invaded. However Dan discovered a weak spot in the dimension, allowing him to escape and transform into Ultraseven. Encountering the alien, the two fought each other and Seven was able to kill Icarus and destroy the fleet. Alien Icarus has reappeared a few times since then, notably as a minion of Dark Lugiel in Ultraman Ginga.

Alien Wild

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ultrsvn_aln_wild.png

First Appearance: Fly to the Mountain of Evil

A yeti-like extraterrestrial, Alien Wild came to Earth to capture humans for eternal youth. Behind the sudden deaths of numerous hikers and Dan Moroboshi with a soul-stealing camera, UG surrounded him and captured his camera, but lost a member to Wild's stun rays. They discovered the camera's properties after testing on a guinea pig. While UG developed a solution, other members were sent out to give a fake camera to the alien and get their paralyzed member back. Hostages were exchanged and the alien found out the camera was fake, summoning Narse in his rage. UG incinerated the hairy alien while he ran back to his spaceship-monster. Dan, the hikers, and the guinea pig were freed from the camera.

Narse

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/narse_i.png

First Appearance: Fly to the Mountain of Evil

When Alien Wild came to Earth, he rode a draconic spaceship which he stored within his mountain lair. When his plans were foiled, he called forth the spaceship to destroy Ultra Garrison. In that time, UG freed Dan from Wild's soul-catching camera and Dan headed off to transform into Ultraseven and fight Narse. Narse managed to disorient him in spaceship form before attempting to constrict the hero. Seven merely used all his strength to break free of Narse, scattering the dragon's body parts all over the landscape. Narse would later reappear in Mega Monster Battle: Ultra Galaxy Legends under control of Alien Zetton, attempting to crush the Pendragon with his coils, before both were killed by Ultraman Dyna.

Alien Spell

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/alien_spell_full.jpg

First Appearance: From Another Planet with Love

The Spell came to Earth in search of the blood of young women to cure their radiation sickness. They gave out watches to victims that drained them of blood, but UG caught on. However, the little brother of one of the women put on the watch, and the aliens discovered that children's blood is much more delicious! They began to try lure children while UG managed to prevent the kids from getting watches. Enraged, the lead alien turned giant while an invasion fleet arrived to fight UG's planes. Ultraseven fought the alien, overpowering and forcing him to flee. Before he could get away safely, Seven sliced him in two with the Eye Slugger.]]

Chances are you're aware that this alien is better known for being in "the banned episode". An atomic bomb survivor noticed the unfortunate (and non-intentional) resemblance and Unfortunate Implications they had on atom bomb survivors. Thus, the episode has never been aired since it was noticed and pointed out. DVD and English releases won't include it either, so we likely won't being seeing this alien in a very long time.

Alien Iyros

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/iyros2.jpg

First Appearance: The Man from V3

After making an unprovoked attack on UG's space station V3, Alien Iyros landed on Earth when pursued by UG. He escaped, kidnapping Furuhashi and Soga. He created clones of the men to infiltrate UG's base, but Dan killed both of them. Later, Kiriyama and V3's Kurata were informed that the alien would leave and return the hostages if given fuel for his spaceship. UG obliged, but the alien turned out to be lying! Iyros attacked UG's planes while Dan transformed into Ultraseven and rescued Soga and Furuhashi. Seven then went for the saucer, but Iyros transformed into a giant to fight Seven. The battles was fierce, but Seven obliterated the evil alien with his Wide Shot and UG destroyed the escaping saucer.]]

King Joe

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/king_j0e.png

First Appearance: The Ultra Garrison Goes West Pt. 1

The ultimate weapon of war among the Pedans, the aliens sent the titanic robot to Earth in the form of several spaceships. The ships destroyed a submarine and later attacked the UN Embassy in Japan. Seven fought the robot, but it overpowered him. With Seven defeated, King Joe left while UG studied how to bypass the robot's pedanium plating. The Pedans then sent King Joe again when they broke their peace promises to Dan and UG, this time at a harbour. Ultraseven fought the machine and UG fired a special chemical made to destroy pedanium, greatly harming the robot, whom Seven fisnish off with his Wide Shot.

King Joe is the most iconic Kaiju in Ultraseven asides from Eleking. He has made numerous reappearances, often as a Pedan monster, but sometimes under other aliens' control. He has also received an incredibly powerful arm cannon in several incarnations, capable of killing weak monsters in a few blasts.
  • Achilles' Heel: Being made of Pedanium, he's vulnerable to a certain type of chemical.
  • Adaptational Species Change: Well, sort of, in Ultraman Max, the species that made him was changed. In every other continuity, he's a creation of the Alien Pedan, in Max he was created by Alien Zetton instead.
  • A.I. Is a Crapshoot: In the Heisei series, UG rebuilds him as an Earth defender. It still remembers its original purpose.
  • Arm Cannon: As King Joe Black and Custom.
  • Breakout Villain: Has appeared in nearly every entry of the Ultra Series since returning in Ultraman Max.
  • Combining Mecha: Made from several spaceships. They're capable of separating and combining at will.
  • The Dragon: To the Pedans in most series and Alien Zetton in Ultraman Max.
  • Eye Beams: His usual power when not equipped with the arm cannon.
  • Humongous Mecha: A gigantic robot.
  • Implacable Man: His armour makes him nearly unkillable except when hit by the most powerful attacks.
  • The Juggernaut: Huge, slow, but nearly unstoppable.
  • Sizeshifter: In Max, he spends most of episode disguised as a children's model.
  • Took a Level in Badass: As King Joe Black, he kills Angross, Gromite, Lunatyx, and Salamandoras with only two or three blasts.
  • Tuckerization: Named after Tetsuo Kinjo, a producer for Ultraseven.
  • Villain Decay: In Ultra galaxy NEO onwards, he becomes a victim of this as he is easily defeated by other monsters like Gomora and Red King. In fact, an entire of army of King Joe Blacks are decimated by human weaponry!
  • The Worf Effect: Absolutely pummels Ultraseven in the first fight. Later used again as King Joe Black when he singlehandedly defeats Gomora, Eleking, and Litra. Then, the tables turn on him when he battles Grande's Red King.

Alien Pedan

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ultr_glxy_aln_pndn.png

First Appearance: The Ultra Garrison Goes West Pt. 1

When a Terrestrial Defense Forces satellite visited the planet Pedan, they did not believe it was inhabited. However, the residents mistook the satellite as a weapon and declared war on Earth. They sent an agent to disguise herself as TDF member Dorothy Anderson and assassinate all involved. Eventually, Ultra Garrison with the help of an American agent uncovered the plan and rescued the real Anderson. Meanwhile Dan visited the fake Anderson to discuss peace. She agreed…seemingly. The Pedans had changed their plans from fighting off supposed invaders to taking Earth for themselves. After destroying their King Joe, Seven killed the Pedan leader, sending his fleet into retreat. The Pedans have only appeared a few times in the series since, but they have a major role in Ultra Galaxy NEO as one of the Big Bads.
  • Big Bad: Their leader Harlan in Ultra Galaxy NEO
  • Human Aliens: Though not seen beyond the Anderson double, they are revealed to be such in Ultra Galaxy.
  • Humans Are the Real Monsters: If humans hadn't visited the Pedan planet without warning, the whole crisis would have never happened!
  • I Lied: Seriously, Anderson? You flat-out promised alien-on-alien with Dan not to invade Earth, and now you call for the invasion fleet!
  • Jerkass: Even if Earth started the war in the first place, the Pedans aren't exactly a friendly people as seen in later series.

Annon

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/annon_wowow.png

First Appearance: Eyes Shining in the Darkness

When a satellite sent to planet Annon crashed on Earth, UG was sent to take a look. They found nothing, but Dan kept hearing some alien sound. Nobody noticed an eye appear behind them either, disappearing with the noise. Later, a boy named Hiroshi found a strange rock at the site and was once followed by the eye. The eye told him to return the rock that was its body to the site and he would give Hiroshi whatever he wanted. Hiroshi obliged and the eye defended him from UG members who had uncovered its identity. Soon, the eye reunited with its stony body becoming the monster Annon. Dan transformed into Ultraseven to fight Annon, and soon learned the alien’s true intentions. It had come down with the satellite to tell humans to stay away from its homeworld, but in the crash, Iit was separated from its stone vessel. Understanding, Seven took Annon back into space.

The Burako aliens had discovered that the fungus that made up their diet grew in great abundance when exposed to the chromosomes of a human female. So, they began attacking women, including UG member Anne, and placing the fungus on them. The result was that the women began to be slowly killed off by the fungus while it grew overwhelmingly on them. UG's study of the fungus showed that it could only be neutralized and killed by exposing it to an element only found on Saturn. Meanwhile, the Burako invasion fleet headed for Earth. So, Dan transformed into Ultraseven, flying to Saturn in a race against time. The aliens tried to imprison him, but UG destroyed their ships, allowing Seven to retrieve the element and save Earth's women.

However, the sinister Kill aliens had gotten the news and wanted the bomb to destroy UG. So, UG got Dan and Amagi to unwittingly carry a fake of the explosive and enter a 700-km race. The Kills had also entered the race and made numerous attempts from planting mines to using a helicopter, but they all failed. Eventually the last one was a sniper killed trying to shoot Dan and Amagi, but they had one more trick up their sleeves.

However UG had received reports of alien sightings at the university, so they sent Soga to investigate. Soga was kidnapped by the alien and the team mobilized. Dan turned into Ultraseven and battled the alien, but Prote left an illusion of himself while his people's invasion fleet arrived on Earth. Inchinomiya, angry that he had been just a pawn to Prote's scheme, tried to kill Prote. The satellite had been for informing the invasion fleet and the teleporter was just for getting put while Earth was attacked. Ichinomiya and Prote fought each other, eventually falling into the teleporter. The machine couldn't take both at once, so it self-desructed,vaporised both of them.

Dan eventually destroyed the source, allowing UG to get off the asteroid and use their planes too while Dan turned into Ultraseven and fought in Agira's place. Soon, he sliced the monster's head with the Eye Slugger and took the decapitated head into the skies with the asteroid following it.

Maya gave the Eye back to Dan with the explanation of the situation and Seven destroyed the space misile. Maya went to a machine and pressed a few buttons on it, vaporizing her.

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/aron_3.png

First Appearance: The Seven Assassination Plan. Pt.1

A monster sent by the Alien Guts, Arlon solely existed to test Ultraseven and let the aliens study his combat methods. Sure enough, Arlon was defeated, but the Guts got the necessary information.

  • Invisibility: Capable of such, though his reflection is still visible.
  • Off with His Head!: How Seven kills him.
  • Pet Monstrosity: Sort of. Guts really wanted to use him just to study Ultraseven.
  • We Hardly Knew Ye: The Guts only made him for the purpose of taking a look at Ultraseven in combat, so he only appears in a flashback with the Guts explaining the situation.
  • Wings Do Nothing: Despite having wings, he's never seen flying.

Alien Guts

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/alien_guts_info.png

First Appearance: The Seven Assassination Plan Pt. 1

The Guts, like all before them, sought world domination, but more than every other race, they had come prepared. After the defeat of their monster Arlon, the Guts tried to tempt Dan into battling them. The first try saw Dan send out Windam to kill the aliens, but their spaceship made short work of the capsule monster. Later, the Guts staged an attack, which UG could not defeat, so Dan turned into Ultraseven -exactly what the aliens wanted. Making short work of Seven, the Guts imprisoned him in a glass crucifix and announced to the world that they would execute him at dawn. UG set to work on a plan that would free the hero of Earth. They gathered the necessary materials and stayed low from the aliens' sight. By morning, they had finished the plan and freed Ultraseven. Seven quickly destroyed Guts' UFO, ending the greatest threat so far.

The parakeet-headed Guts have become one of the most iconic aliens in the Ultra Series, making numerous reappearances as important antagonists due to their cunning and power.

  • Art Evolution: Is given a burlier, more armoured design in Ultraman Mebius onward (the one shown above).
  • Bird People: Resemble featherless anthropomorphic parrots.
  • Dangerously Genre Savvy: They forced Dan to do the one thing he always had to do Once per Episode as part of defeating him in their original appearance.
  • Doppelgänger Attack: Their method of combat is to create illusions of themselves. These illusions are just as capable of hurting Ultras as the real one.
  • The Dragon: A few times, notably Bolst from Ultraman Ginga S.
  • Dub Name Change: The Buffins of Abadon in English.
  • Evil Sounds Deep: Have deep guttural voices in their original appearance and Ginga S.
  • Eye Beams: Can fire stun bolts from his eyes.
  • Intangibility: Another ability.
  • Kick the Dog: Kills Windam.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": Gutz and Gutts is also used.
    • Bolst has also been spelt as Vorst.
  • Super Empowering: In Ginga S, Bolst can do this to Spark Dolls. For example, Bemular and Bemstar gain his various energy bolts along with their normal powers.
  • Villain Team-Up: A few.
    • Controls the pollution monster Sulfas in the Heisei series.
    • With Temperor, Nackle, and Zarab in Ultraman Mebius.
    • Controls Gomess and Kelbeam in Ultra Galaxy NEO.
    • One of Chibu's minions in Ultraman Ginga S.
  • Villain Teleportation: Could also do this.

First Appearance: Challenge from the Waters

A race of kappa-like aliens, the Tepeto (or Tepetonians) set up base at the bottom of a lake, but sightings of kappas drew in the attention of UG as well as journalists.

Tepeto

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/tepeto_2.jpg

First Appearance: Challenge from the Waters

Like his namesake masters, Tepeto was a kappa-like thing. Unlike them, he was a weapon of war for attacking Earth. Hatching from an enormous egg-like capsule, Tepeto marched through the lake attacking UG jets. Dan, however, managed to escape his prison and turned into Ultraseven to battle the monster. After a fierce battle, Tepeto tries to swim away, but Seven threw his Eye Slugger underwater, and up floated the two halves of Tepeto's body.

Guyros

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/guyros2.jpg

First Appearance: Envoy of the Nonmalts

UG fought the monster as it attacked ships, but they could merely annoy the creature. Eventually, Ultraseven stepped in allowing UG to attack the Nonmalts themselves. Seven used his Eye Slugger to chop the monster into pieces, ending the Nomalt threat.

Nonmalt

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/nonmalt.jpg

First Appearance: Envoy of the Nonmalts

According to the history of the Nonmalts, they were the original inhabitants of Earth. The one day, humans invaded from the depths of space, driving the Nonmalts into the sea, where they hoped that humans would never find them. Then, humans began to build submarine bases, and the Nonmalts declared war upon their enemies. They sent the monster Guyros to attack the land dwellers while destroying all the submarine bases they could. While Ultraseven battled Guyros, and UG turned its attention to the Nonmalt cities. Kiriyama told his men that the Nonmalts were aliens who had set up base in the depths of the sea, making up the story as a justification to invade Earth and they destroyed the Nonmalt bases, leaving the mystery of who was the original invader unsolved.
  • Humans Are the Real Monsters: IF the Nonmalts were telling the truth, then humans are really invaders from another planet.
  • Ultraterrestrials: If what Shinichi (the eponymous envoy) said was true, then the Nonmalts are the original inhabitants of Earth.
  • Unreliable Narrator: A major point of the story is whether the Nonmalts were really the original Earthlings or simply spouting bullshit to justify their invasion. It's revealed that they weren't lying in the Heisei series.

People of Planet 4

First Appearance: Nightmare of Planet 4

Long ago, the People of Planet 4 constructed androids to do their work, but these robots overthrew their masters forming a dictatorship of the machine. The biological inhabitants of the planet were ruthlessly oppressed by the Robot Chief, treated as expendables only worthy of pain and suffering. This reign of terror ended when Ultraseven killed the Robot Chief and destroyed much of the mechanical forces.
  • Does This Remind You of Anything?: Their living conditions are very similar to communist nations and Nazi Germany.
  • Human Aliens: It's implied that they're more than just that...they're humans!
  • We Have Reserves: A variant. The Robot Chief clearly did not care about how the people were killed en masse, but it ended up with the planet running out of humans to use.

Robot Chief and Robot Commissioner

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/robo_chokan.jpg

First Appearance: Nightmare of Planet 4

These two machine-men were the absolute rulers of Planet 4. They treated the original people of the planet without heart or mercy, shooting them for TV entertainment and arresting those hit by cars for not giving into the rights of the machine. Inevitably, this oppression resulted in most of the population dying off, so the Robots looked for a solution. They noticed that Earth had a large reservoir of biologically similar species and sought to enslave them. Now it happened to be that Dan and Soga were on the planet due to a malfunction in the spaceship they had been testing for UG and learned of the invasion plans for Earth. Dan transformed into Ultraseven inside a building with the Robot Chief and Commissioner, toppling the structure and killing the automaton tyrant and his minion. Seven soon destroyed the Chief's robot armies, liberating the people of Planet 4. He and Soga returned to Earth shortly after. Nobody believed their story though.
  • A.I. Is a Crapshoot: Essentially how the robots got power was through their AI being too advanced for the good of the people of Planet 4.
  • Clockwork Creature: In one scene, the Chief has his secretary polish his internal workings, so he removes his face to reveal a mass of constantly rotating gears and his eyes.
  • The Dragon: The Robot Commissioner
  • Evil Is Petty: Hits his secretary for making coffee he disliked.
  • Faux Affably Evil: Yes, the Chief seems friendly and smiles a lot, but he's every bit as emotionless as you would expect from a robot dictator.
  • No Celebrities Were Harmed: The Robot Chief was meant to be like Hitler and Stalin, right down to the mustache.
  • Ridiculously Human Robots: Both of the look exactly like humans except for what lies underneath.
  • Scary Dogmatic Aliens: Of the Communist and Nazi type.
  • Turned Against Their Masters: How the Robot Chief became dictator.
  • Would Hit a Girl: The Chief beats up his human secretary for making bad coffee.

Alien Goron

First Appearance: The Terrifying Super-Simian

A simian extraterrestrial, Alien Goron came to Earth to create a new order of human-ape hybrids. He mind-controlled two scientists into helping him out with the project and disguised himself as one of the monkeys at the primate zoo they managed. Eventually, Dan and Anne uncovered the plot, freeing the scientists from his control. In a rage, Goron became a giant to battle Ultraseven while Anne dealt with Gori. Ultraseven managed to kill the simian alien, ending the threat.

Gori

First Appearance: The Terrifying Super-Simian

The very first result of Alien Goron's man-ape project, Gori acted as a bodyguard for the two scientists under Goron's control. Dan and Anne came to investigate when a man-ape was seen killing a police officer, encountering Gori - the killer. Gori got into a brief scuffle with Dan until Anne and the scientists broke the fight up. When Goron's plans were foiled, he sent Gori after Anne while the alien dealt with Ultraseven. Anne fled from Gori eventually meeting up with the rest of UG and then killed the man-ape monster

Alien Perolynga

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/alien_perolynga_2.png

First Appearance: The Boy who Cried Flying Saucer

Alien Perolynga came to Earth disguised as a little boy. There, he met a stargazer named Saburu who had seen his incoming invasion fleet, but when Saburu had told UG, they saw nothing. Perolynga convinced Saburu to try again night after night. And night after night, the same thing happened. Eventually, Perolynga forced Saburu to make a call telling UG that he was being informed by an alien, assuming they wouldn't buy it. However, UG had been studying the photos sent by Saburu and discovered that the spaceships were meant to camouflage with the stars, so they did! UG came into the scene, destroying all of Perolynga's spaceships while Ultraseven killed the invader.
  • Creepy Child: His human disguise.
  • Crying Wolf: Essentially, the nature of his whole gambit. He didn't count on UG being forced to take the photos seriously anyway).
  • Faux Affably Evil: Acts very friendly to Saburu, but was really just using him as a pawn.

Alien Salome

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/salome_8.jpg

First Appearance: The Duel: Dan vs. Seven

The most brilliant minds in the universe, the Salome sought to conquer Earth. They did so by creating a robot duplicate of Ultraseven to do battle with Earth's defender. The problem was they were unable to replicate Ultraseven's abilities, so they lured Dan away from his Ultra Eye and to their lair, capturing him. There, they tortured Dan into giving away the secret of his powers and applied it to their robot. As a parting gift, they placed a bomb in their base to explode once they got far enough, to kill Dan. What they hadn't counted on was that Dan would use the extra time to escape. After Seven destroyed their duplicate, they mistook Ultraseven heading for them to be their robot destroying Seven until Ultraseven destroyed them. Since then, the Salome have also appeared with a major role in Mega Monster Battle:Ultra Galaxy Legends Gaiden (the prequel to Ultraman Zero: The Revenge of Belial), where they use more robot Ultramen and a mechanical doppelganger Rei's Gomora.
  • Big Bad: Their leader, Dr. Herodia in the Ultra Galaxy Legends Gaiden - Ultraman Zero vs. Darklops Zero.
  • Human Aliens: It would seem so since they don't ever take any other forms.
  • Insufferable Genius: The greatest minds in the universe and very pretentious about it.
  • Mecha-Mooks: Not the Salomes themselves, but heir main gimmick is legions upon legions of robot Ultramen and other Ultra Heroes like Rei's Gomora.
  • Mind Probe: They use this get the necessary information from Dan.

Robot Ultra Seven

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rob0t_svn_4.jpg

First Appearance: The Duel: Dan vs. Seven

The Salome's weapon for conquering Earth, Robot Ultraseven was unleashed upon the base of operations being abandoned. Dan sent out Agira to fight while he retrieved his Ultra Eye from the car. Agira was easily defeated as the capsule monster did not understand why his own master was attacking him. Fortunately, the real Seven stepped in and, after a difficult battle, destroyed the robot lookalike.

Alien Hook

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/hook.png

First Appearance: Who Are You?

The Hook aliens came to Earth with one of the most bizarre bases yet. Using an apartment complex as the veil, they would replace the denizens and buildings every night with exact lookalikes and them disguised as the denizens. This plan failed when a drunken man returned home late at night, unsure of why nobody recognized him. He contacted UG before being abducted by the aliens and they went in to investigate. Furuhashi and Dan stayed and discovered what was going on, infiltrating the base and finding the man locked away. With their disguises blown, the Hooks revealed their true forms and Dan battled them while UG fought off the spaceships. Eventually, the forces of Earth were victorious and everything went back to normal for the good people of the complex. The Hooks have appeared a few more times since.

Alien Ghose

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/alien_goth.png

First Appearance: The Ultimate Invasion Pt. 1

The Ghose invaded Earth with a announcement for humans - They would become their slaves or be driven to extinction. Refusing either choice, TDF and UG waged war against the aliens who sent their monster Pandon to decimate them. After Seven killed Pandon, the Ghose retrieved his body and rebuilt it while continuing their assault on Earth. Eventually, Dan as Ultraseven and UG decimated the Ghose's base and eventually the rebuilt Pandon too.
  • Knight of Cerebus: The first invasion in the Ultraseven in which Japan is not the only country attacked definitely makes them this for UG.
  • No Mouth: Despite being capable of speech, they don't have a mouth.
  • Sadistic Choice: Their decree to Earth - Become our slaves or we'll annihilate you all.
  • The Unintelligible: They're incapable of speaking human languages, so they kidnap Amagi to do the talking for them.

Pandon

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/pandon_fll.png

First Appearance: The Ultimate Invasion Pt. 1

The two-faced Pandon was the Ghose's ultimate weapon of war. They dropped it on Earth in a gigantic box-like capsule and it proceeded to do much destruction to UG's forces. Despite being told not to by his superiors at M78, Dan turned into Ultraseven and battled the monster, slicing off one of its arms and one of its legs. Even so, Ultraseven had been critically wounded from all the battles prior and almost died. When the Ghose retrieved Pandon's body, they rebuilt its missing arm and leg, creating Reconstructed Pandon. After the aliens' base was destroyed with them, Pandon was unleashed one last time. The heavily injured Ultraseven fought anyways, eventually slicing the monster's head off. With that the grievously wounded hero headed back to the Land of Light where he would stay until the time of Ultraman Leo.

In later incarnations of the monster, Pandon has been depicted with two heads on two necks as opposed to the original two-headed, one-necked creature. He's also gotten a few renames in these incarnations like Neo Pandon and King Pandon, but generally Pandon is best remembered as one of Ultraseven's most dangerous and bizarre-looking foes.
  • An Arm and a Leg: Seven chops one of each off, but the Ghose give him new ones, durable enough to actually catch the Eye Slugger without injury.
  • Breath Weapon: A stream of fire. Later incarnations added energy beams too, one red and one blue.
  • Cyborg: As Reconstructed Pandon.
  • Dub Name Change: A Winser Fire-Beather in the TNT dub.
  • Hermaphrodite: In Ultraman Ginga, it's revealed that one head is male while the other is female!
  • Multiple Head Case: Two heads. The original one had one neck while later ones had two, separating the heads.
  • Mythology Gag: His later two heads, two necks design are based on the original one's concept art. The reason for the change was that Tsuburaya was having trouble operating both heads in the suit.
  • Off with His Head!: The fate of the original one.
  • Pet Monstrosity: Of the Ghose.
  • Playing with Fire: Two streams of flame are better than one!
  • Stealth Pun: Pandon comes out of a large box-like object -Pandora's Box!
  • We Can Rebuild Him: What the Ghose did with him.
  • The Worf Effect: The original one pummeled Ultraseven tirelessly, but...
  • Worf Had the Flu: This was mostly because Seven was far too injured to fight. He couldn't even create an Emerium Beam!
