YMMV / Ultra Series

  • Awesome Music: Has its own sub-page.
  • Crowning Moment of Funny: Ultraman rap. Set to I'm a Scatman.
  • Crowning Moment of Heartwarming:
    • Seiji and Yuuko's reunion and Ultraman 80's reunion with his students in Ultraman Mebius. The fact that the brought all the original actors back to reprise their parts makes it all the sweeter.
    • The fact that the Showa Ultras' reaction to their entire species being subjected to a Mass Super-Empowering Event that gave them incredible power was to collectively choose to protect peace in the universe and protect the innocent from harm.
  • Fridge Horror - Zetton (and its successors) look more cool than scary. Supply material note that those boxes that appear to be its eyes are actually the ears. So where are Zetton's eyes? Those glowing spots on its chest. Suddenly, the beast look much more creepy than before.
  • Germans Love David Hasselhoff: Go ahead and ask any Malaysian kid (or their parents) if they've heard of Ultraman. Chances are, they would be at least familiar with one incarnation of Ultraman or another (even the American attempts). Being one of the earliest Kaiju/Tokukatsu show to make it over (the first versions of Ultraman first aired in the late 70s) and there being an official toy distributor in the country helps. Technically, this explain the Hong Kong Dubs, since the show, along with Doraemon, is just that popular over here.
  • Nightmare Fuel:
    • Gan-Q is a whole is freaky inside and outside.
    • Ohhhh yes. Tiga and Nexus (and Cosmos) seemed to have particularly nasty kaiju every so often, sometimes going beyond simply terrifying.
    • 100 Union Kaiju Beryudora, Ultraman Belial's One-Winged Angel form. Not only is the thing downright demonic in nature, it's body is made up of scores of complete and LIVING KAIJU, each of which is moving and roaring, grabbing at opponents that are attacking.
    • Fake Agul in episode 16 of Ultraman Gaia. His creepy smile was something that scarred kids' memories for a very, very long time.
    • At least once a season you get a horrific creature that seems to be melted in how its mutations worked out.
    • Also, anything which involves an Assimilation Plot monster. Or Dada, who wiped out an entire base of scientists.
    • Yapool can get pretty scary at times.
    • Zetton for the very first series-the first monster to actually kill Ultraman. And its appearance on the whole is terrifying.
    • Baltan's laugh was terrifying enough that it's now a Hell Is That Noise for the whole series.
  • Rooting for the Empire: Many of the monsters are very well-loved by the large fanbase. Some of the favourites are Baltan, Metron, Antlar, Red King, Gomora, Dinosaur Tank, Jiras, Eleking, King Joe, Zetton, Gan-Q, Alien Guts and Pigmon.
  • Visual Effects of Awesome: Given that it is originally made by a special effects team, the franchise itself is known for its hgh qualiy miniature sets and costumes.
