Added DiffLines:

* AndThenWhat: How Gudis is ultimately defeated. Jack points out how "consuming all life in the universe" is an evil-sounding goal, but in the end it's self-defeating.


* AssholeVictim: The citizen shooting kangaroos with an assault gun from Episode 4. He’s a trigger happy nut ball who is shooting at animals for no reason, not even for sport. He even leaves his friend behind when he see Deganja’s tornado. It’s safe to say, no tears are shed for his death.



* {{Irony}}: When Ryugulo finally [[spoiler:decides to take human form after a heated argument with Ultraman, his form resembles Charles Morgan (but with a moustache), the other corner of the love triangle in that episode.]]

* {{Irony}}: When Ryugulo finally [[spoiler:decides to take human form after a heated argument with Ultraman, his form resembles Charles Morgan (but with a moustache), the other corner of the love triangle in that episode.]] Charles is actually amused by this, even comments that at least Ryugulo "has good tastes."]]


'''Page pretty much in progress. Help is appreciated.'''


* ArchEnemy: Ultraman and Gudis.



* GeniusLoci [[spoiler:The Earth is revealed to be this, and it's ''angry''.]] Also alluded to in the mysterious prophecy in the final two episodes: "One that was bound in the deep; one that was born to the sky; one shall be called from its sleep, and darkness shall follow the cry."
** Another one goes "The final plague the world shall know; the one banished; the one buried; the one who sleeps below."

** When Ultraman is facing-off with Bios in episode nine, the scene is filmed like a spaghetti western, complete with twitching fingers on both sides. In this case, Ultraman proves to be better at the quick draw.

* AerithAndBob: At least from Morgan's point of view in episode eleven, when he finds out that Veronica's husband is named Ryugulo, he wonders if he's Italian. Justified, however, because they're ''both'' aliens, but Ryugulo probably didn't bother using a human name.
