Trivia / Ultraman Tiga

  • Acting for Two: Hiroshi Nagano plays both Daigo and an errand boy/intern named Nagano in episode 49.
  • Contest Winner Cameo: Taraban was the winner of a Create Your Own Monster contest held by Tsuburaya Productions.
  • Hey, It's That Sound!:
    • Rodan's roar is borrowed for the Weaponizers and Zoiger.
    • Gatanozoa's trumpeting is borrowed from Rebirth of Mothra's Death Ghidorah, while Gagi uses a modified version of Mothra's chirps.
  • Keep Circulating the Tapes: The series was released subbed in DVD, but due to 4Kids Entertainment's closure and Funimation moving on to other projects, the DVDs are no longer made, with Volume 3 in particular being almost impossible to find.
  • Milestone Celebration: Of Ultraman's 30th anniversary. Episode 49 "The Ultra Star" even has Daigo travel back to 1965 and stumble into Eiji Tsuburaya beginning the production of Ultraman, as well as Ultramn Tiga taming up with the original deal to battle the Monster of the Week.
  • Overly Preprepared Gag: One of the theories about why 4Kids went for a Gag Dub is that they weren't that interested in the show itself, but there was reference to the Ultraman series in Kirby: Right Back at Ya! that viewers wouldn't get unless they had seen the show before. That's right: 4Kids may have acquired Ultraman Tiga for the sole purpose of explaining a joke in another series.
  • Prop Recycling:
    • Melba was modified into Zoiger.
    • Silvergon was created from Sealizar, with added parts from Gagi.
    • Goldras was remade into Yanakagi.
  • What Could Have Been:
    • Tiga's Protector was intended to be removable and be used just like the Eye Slugger. It's unknown exactly why this idea was dropped.
    • Golza was originally going to be named Orgo.
  • You Look Familiar: Alien Muzan's human form actor later played that of Hudra (and voiced him) in The Final Odyssey
