Ultraman King

Voiced by: Motomu Kiyokawa (Ultraman Leo and Ultraman Mebius), Junichiro Koizumi (Mega Monster Battle: Ultra Galaxy Legends), Nobuyuki Hiyama (Ultraman Geed), Masao Nakasone (stock grunts, since Ultraman Zero: The Chronicle)
The most powerful Ultraman in existence and a virtual god amongst the Ultras, Ultraman King is a reclusive and mysterious hermit who resides on a Zen Garden-like planet near M78 where he is its sole inhabitant. He most often appears in times of serious crisis when all seems completely lost against forces of evil. King is supposedly one of the oldest living Ultras, and in the series' lore was around before the Plasma Spark existed, thus making him one of, if not the only inhabitant of the Land of Light to possess memories of what life was like before the planet's star died, necessitating the construction of the Spark.
  • Appeal to Worse Problems: In Episode 39, he admonished the Ultra Brothers for fighting with Leo and reminded them of the imminent collision of the Ultra planet with Earth.
  • Badass Beard: One of the few Ultras to sport facial hair.
  • Badass Cape: His Ultra Mantle, which can transform into anything he wishes and can even deflect attacks. He gave it to Leo for the series, but got it back afterwards.
  • Big Good: of the entire Ultra Series, although since he's a hermit, the Father of Ultra tends to fill in the more active needs of the role.
  • Deus ex Machina: His role in Ultraman Leo is to make sure the day can be saved whenever things seem totally hopeless. He does against Alien Pressure (when Leo is shrunken down by the wizard), Alien Babalou (revealing him to be disguised as Astra to end the conflict between the Leo Brothers and Ultra Brothers), and Alien Bunyo (when Bunyo and Commander Black chop Leo into pieces).
  • Godzilla Threshold: He only gets involved in the Ultra warriors' battles if there is no other way for whatever crisis they are facing to be solved, such as the Land of Light about to collide with Earth while the Ultra and Leo Brothers are engaged in in-fighting or Ultraman Belial successfully activating a weapon capable of destroying the universe.
  • Hermit Guru: Usually lives as one, spending his time meditating and observing the Space Garrison from an isolated planet. In fact, no Ultra had ever seen King until Leo's battle against Alien Pressure forced him to make an appearance.
  • I Have Many Names: He tells this to Ultraman Hikari in the Hikari Saga Gaiden, saying that "Ultraman King" is simply what humans have given him.
  • Mysterious Past: It's known that the Ultras developed their powers from the Plasma Spark, but Ultraman King was already an Ultra long before that and his origin is unknown. Only Ultraman Nexus is more ancient than him.
  • Non-Indicative Name: Despite his given title of "king", Ultraman King isn't actually the ruler of the Land of Light. It just befits his incredible power.
  • Non-Standard Character Design: He's the only good Ultra with red eyes.
  • The Omnipotent: His powers are virtually infinite and he's regarded as all powerful, and more than backs up that claim. He's capable of effortlessly bring back a dismembered Leo to life and curbstomped the immensely powerful Ultraman Belial, then created the Land of Light's moon around him to seal him away. In Ultraman Geed, he recreates the freaking universe.
  • Physical God: When a species of immensely strong, 50 meter tall energy beings considers you their deity, you have to be this.
  • Time Abyss: In keeping with the longevity of his kind, though He predates the Plasma Spark, and is at LEAST 300,000 years old, probably older.


Land of Light

See Ultra Series Belial Empire for information on him.

     Ultraman Tregear 

Ultraman Tregear

Portrayed by: Yuuma Uchida (voice)

Ultraman Tregear is an evil Ultraman and the main antagonist of Ultraman R/B The Movie. This enigmatic warrior has ended lives on countless worlds by meddling with the hearts of its inhabitants. Arriving on Earth, he has met Katsumi's friend Yukio Toi, manipulating him and nurturing his hatred to transform him into the kaiju Snake Darkness.

Tregear returns in the succeeding series, Ultraman Taiga, as one of its primary antagonists, with more of his motives and backstory being revealed.

  • Barrier Warrior: Ischyros Heba, An energy shield, durable enough to withstand Grigio Regina's Erga-Trio Cannon.
  • Big Bad: Of Ultraman R/B The Movie: Select! The Crystal of Bond and later a recurring antagonist in Ultraman Taiga.
  • Cool Mask: Has a shadowy black mask over his eyes and forehead that furthers his sinister appearance.
  • Dark Is Evil: Black and blue it is.
  • Dimensional Traveler: Is presented as this, he also brought Riku and Pega to this Earth and Katsumi to an alternate dimension of Pigmons.
  • Diving Kick: Geargy Dirge, which he leaps and flying kicks his opponent with a drilling kick, effectively de-transforming an Ultra.
  • The Dreaded: Perhaps even more so than Belial. Even before the premier of the movie, Tregear is noted to have the equal strength with Geed Ultimate Final and Ultraman Gruebe.
  • Expy: Argubably to Ultraman Belial, as both Ultras originates from Nebula M78 and both were estranged from Father of Ultra and Taro. The R/B movie director Masayoshi Takesue confirms this and even states that he is planning to turn Tregear into a recurring evil Ultraman, like Belial.
  • Eye Beams: Opto Dacrys.
  • Fallen Hero: He was once a hero, and even a friend to Ultraman Taro. Once, but no longer.
  • Finishing Move: Trera Ultigizer, an attack which he summons five energy balls that unleash dark blue beams.
