!!Kazuki Komon
!!! Portrayed by: Takuji Kawakubo
-->''"The reality one sees...if it were all a deception..."''

The main character of the series. Komon is a kind-hearted, straightforward person who is always willing to help others. Throughout the series he bonds with the Dunamists and grows alongside them. [[spoiler: This culminates in him becoming the fifth and final Dunamist, host to the true form of Nexus: Ultraman Noa.]]
* TenMinuteRetirement: [[spoiler: In episode 16, he leaves the Night Raiders but returns at the end of the episode.]]
* {{Adorkable}}: Komon is a {{Nice Guy}}, but rather straight-laced. Also, there is his reaction when he gets tomato ketchup on his nose during a dinner in episode 30.
* AlliterativeName: '''K'''aizuki '''K'''omon.
* ArmorPiercingSlap: Komon gets one from Nagi in episode 13.[[spoiler: She was trying to snap him out of his grief for Riko's demise.]]
* BadLiar: This is a given, as Komon is a naturally straightforward person. He lied to Ren's boss that he was Ren's cousin, something that Ren joked about upon hearing about it. Even Ren's co-worker remarked on how Komon used honorifics when referring to his 'uncle and aunt'.
* TheBigDamnKiss: Shares one with Riko in episode 10. [[spoiler: Then, she dies 2 episodes later.]]
* CatapultNightmare: Has one in episode 7 where Nagi shot him.
* DarkAndTroubledPast: When he was a child he almost drowned. In episode 1, he is terrified and loses control of himself during a rescue operation taking place near a river.
* FriendToAllChildren: Komon goes out of his way to rescue a girl trapped in a factory with her dog in episode 7. He meets up with her in episode 8 and proceeds to have a chat with her[[spoiler:, but the Memory Police had already erased the girl's memory.]]
* TheHero: Despite not being a Dunamist [[spoiler:at first.]]
* HeroicBSOD: Goes through one as a result as a result of [[spoiler: Riko's death in episode 12. It is only in episode 16 when he gets back to his normal self.]]
* InnerMonologue: As the main character, he has plenty of these.
* InstantSedation: When he wakes up in the middle of his physical examination in episode 1, he is quickly sedated before he can ask more questions.
* ItsAllMyFault: For a while, he believed that [[spoiler: Riko's death]] and a family being attacked by Nosferu in episode 12 happened because they cross paths with him.
* LotusEaterMachine: [[spoiler: Mizorogi conjures up an illusion of the late Riko, making Komon think that he can reunite with her.]]
* MasculineGirlFeminineBoy: Feminine Boy to Nagi's Masculine Girl.
* TheMedic: Komon used to be in a rescue team, so he was able to patch up an injured Ren in episode 27.
* NaiveNewcomer: At first, because he is new to the fact that TLT and Space Beasts exist.
* NewMeat: Night Raiders' newest member. The start of the series highlights his unfamiliarity with the ways of the Night Raiders and TLT.
* NiceGuy: Easily the best example in the show. He's straightforward, always willing to help others, bears no ill will towards anyone and is also quite empathetic.
* ParentalAbandonment: His girlfriend Riko's family is shown a few times, but there is hardly any mention about Komon's parents. However, he was shown on the phone with his mother in episode 13 and she seemed to care about him.
* ThePowerOfHate: Nagi tries to get him to cultivate this. On the other hand, Himeya wants Komon not to give in to his hatred.
* SayMyName:

--->'''Komon''': Riko!
* SensitiveGuyAndManlyMan: From his dialogue with Himeya in episode 15, he sees himself as the Sensitive Guy to Himeya's Manly Man.

--->'''Komon''': I'm not a strong man like you.
* StrappedToAnOperatingTable: In episode 1, when TLT perfoms a physical examination on him. When he wakes up in the middle of it, he is understandably upset and confused at the situation.
* SupportingProtagonist: Played straight, making Nexus the first show in the Franchise/UltraSeries to use this trope. The story is told mainly from Komon's point of view, even though he is not a Dunamist (in other words, he does not transform into the titular hero).
** [[spoiler:He loses his role as this when he eventually becomes the fifth Dunamist in the final episode.]]
* [[spoiler: TheLostLenore: His girlfriend, Riko. The fact that she was {{Dead All Along}} and was actually Dark Faust shook Komon considerably. Took him quite a while to get over that.]]
* ThisIsUnforgivable:
** He is visibly angry with the Memory Police for erasing the memory of a girl he rescued in episode 8. The MP leader showed him why it was needed, which gave him second thoughts.
** This is clearly on his mind when Mizorogi taunts him about [[spoiler: making Riko his {{People Puppet}} in episode 13]].
** In episode 25, he says it out loud to Mizorogi after witnessing [[spoiler: a defeated Ultraman]].
* TheWatson: [[JustifiedTrope Justified]], as he is new to the Night Raiders and TLT.
* WrongGenreSavvy: As a character, Komon would fit nicely in a typical ''Ultra Series'', something which ''Nexus'' is not.
** He is fortunate enough to be the first person to encounter Ultraman. After being saved by him in episode 1, he firmly believes that Ultraman is on the side of good and is upset when the other Night Raiders, especially Nagi do not support his belief.
** In episode 3, he is surprised when Nagi revealed to him that Space Beasts attacks are covered up and that the victims' families do not know the truth of what really happened to their loved ones who are killed by Space Beasts.
** In episode 8, he is happy to meet up with a girl he rescued during an operation. He expected her to recognize him and to name her dog with the name his suggested, much like how a typical ''Ultra Series'' episode with a {{Victim of the Week}} would end. Instead, he finds that her memory has been erased.
