Stationary Post Observer (or Agent) #340 from the M78 Nebula was surveying the Milky Way one time. He flew down to planet Earth when he saw a selfless mountain climber named Jiro Satsuma do a HeroicSacrifice to [[CutTheSafetyRope save his friend on a mountain climbing journey]] (Think the movie ''Film/VerticalLimit''). Agent 340 rescued Satsuma in the knick of time, and was so moved by the man's courage that he decided to stay on our planet and patterned his human identity on Satsuma's, going by the name Dan Moroboshi. People would come to know him as Ultra Seven, champion of Earth against alien attacks.

Added DiffLines:

* GoshdangItToHeck: Because it was intended for children's syndication, the Cinar English Dub has this. However, the occasional "damn" and "hell" are spoken. It was still rated TVPG anyway.

Added DiffLines:

* MundaneMadeAwesome: The pulsating background in the opening credits? It's just slow motion footage of waves, printed as a negative, sometimes run backwards, processed with pulsating colors. Or is it? Add music, singing, images, and credits to tell the viewer most of what he or she needs to know about the show.


''Ultraseven'' (sometimes ''Ultra Seven'' or ''Ultra-7''), the third entry in the ''Franchise/UltraSeries'', is more serious, had very sophisticated writing and plotting, and its style is purely Science Fiction, as opposed to its kid-friendlier predecessor. Ultra Seven is an iconic character, in fact so successful that he (and actor Kouji Moritsugu, who played Dan Moroboshi) has appeared in many subsequent shows and movies, even starring in ''Series/UltramanLeo'' seven (no pun intended) years later. Decades later, Seven receives a SpinOffspring, ''Franchise/UltramanZero''.

Added DiffLines:

** Footage was also used for various segments on the original ''WesternAnimation/CartoonPlanet'' in the mid-90s, generally as "universal travel guides" narrated by [[WesternAnimation/SpaceGhostCoastToCoast Space Ghost]]; this was possible thanks to Turner having commissioned the dub and subsequently running it on Creator/{{TNT}} (making it fair game for the editors to use- everything in the Turner library was up for grabs).

Added DiffLines:

* AliensAreBastards: 90% of the show's aliens all just want to invade or destroy Earth. Even aliens like the Pedans who play the HumansAreTheRealMonsters card end up revealing that they would rather destroy humanity instead of finding a peaceful solution.
