Suit Actor: Kohji Uenishinote , Voiced by: Kohji Moritsugu
The second hero of the Land of Light (or the first and only in the Heisei continuity), Ultraseven (or Ultra Seven, either is acceptable) was originally sent to map the Milky Way for M78. He found himself attracted to Earth and went there, rescuing a brave man named Jiro Satsuma and taking on the human's form with the alias Dan Moroboshi. He joined Ultra Garrison after assisting them in defeating an invasion force from Alien Cool and would assist them in many adventures. Since his debut, Ultraseven has become an important character in the Ultra Series, possibly even more than the original Ultraman! He was the first Ultra to appear outside his own series when he assisted Jack against Bemstar in Return of Ultraman and later returned as a major character in Ultraman Leo. His biggest contribution to the franchise's history though is probably his son, Ultraman Zero, who would go on to become one of the most powerful heroes in Ultraman history and star in a few movies and several specials.
  • Abnormal Ammo: Shrank down to about an inch high, ran into Furuhashi's BFG, and let Furuhashi fire the next round, all to destroy Crazygon.
  • Action Dad: He's the father to Ultraman Zero, one of the strongest Heisei Ultras.
  • Anatomy Arsenal
    • The Eye Slugger from the top of his head, by itself, with energy, and combined with telekinesis
    • The Emerium Beam lamp from his forehead which also acts as his Colour Timer
    • His L-shaped Wide Shot from his right forearm
    • His eyes can see invisible aliens
    • Knife and shuriken-shaped energy blasts from his hands
    • A spiral beam from an outstretched arm
  • Cerebus Retcon: In Episode 48, he had nearly run out of energy due to past injuries. Nothing in previous episodes mentioned this.
  • Dented Iron: As noted above all of his previous battles caught up with him and he was in terrible shape by the end of the series, as opposed the Ultra Crusader who came before him who had no such problems.
  • Evil Doppelgänger: Robot Ultraseven, Delusion Ultraseven in Ultraman 80, Dark Seven in Ultraman Ginga
  • Heroic Safe Mode: In Ultraman Leo, after losing the ability to transform, he became focused on the mission and on training Gen, not on himself or collateral damage.
  • Humanoid Aliens: Like all Ultramen, he has a human-shaped body
  • Impossibly Cool Weapon: The Eye Slugger
  • Improbable Weapon User: Flew out of Furuhashi's gun to defeat Crazygon.
  • Kryptonite Factor: Extreme cold. Also, he could run out of energy if he overexerts himself.
  • Messianic Archetype: Played out uniquely. He fights to end the flaws and feuds the humans and creatures often that the Garrison has resolved, and protects the people of earth with his own life before others.
  • Nice Guy: He's given hospitable rescues, to getting his hands dirty to protect even his capsule monsters
  • Off with His Head!: Seven's main use for the Eye Slugger was decapitation.
  • One Hero, Hold the Weaksauce: He lacked a Color Timer (or a time limit in his true form, for that matter), unlike his predecessor. The fact that the solar panels on his chest and shoulders can collect solar energy as needed made him more powerful in comparison.
    • Somewhat averted because unlike the original Ultraman, he was weakened by extreme cold and could still run out of energy and sustain severe injuries if faced with a powerful enemy. Also unlike the original Ultraman, his injuries stacked up overtime to the point where he was on death's door in the last two episodes, whereas the original was stronger by comparison because he was still fighting fit when he faced his final opponent.
  • Paper-Thin Disguise: Somehow other aliens usually have no trouble recognizing Seven for what he really is when he's disguised as Dan.
  • Precision-Guided Boomerang: How The Eye Slugger behaves.
  • Sizeshifter: From micro-sized to several hundred feet.
  • Super Strength: Almost on par with Ultraman's.
  • Telekinesis: Was able to levitate kaiju, as well as control the Eye Slugger this way
  • Telepathy: He talked to other aliens this way
  • Teleporters and Transporters: Limited ability, used in Episode 18.
  • Voluntary Shapeshifting/Humanshifting: From human to his M78 form and back
  • Worf Had the Flu: He was severely weakened by the time Episode 48 aired due to the worsening effects of past injuries.
  • You Are Number 6: Stationary Post Observer # 340, UG member # 7.

    The Ultra Garrison 
The defense team of the series, Ultra Garrison is an elite branch of the Terrestrial Defense Forces (TDF), a worldwide organization established to thwart alien invaders.

As a whole

Dan Moroboshi
Portrayed by: Kohji Moritsugu, Rob Roy (TNT dub)
The protagonist and Ultra Garrison's newest recruit, Dan Moroboshi is Ultraseven in a human disguise and can turn back into Ultraseven using the Ultra Eye. He is a friendly but enigmatic person amongst his teammates. He later reappears in Ultraman Leo, where he is the captain of the new defense team MAC.
  • Alien Among Us: Disguised as a human, aware of human's potential for good as well as their hubris and occasional cruelty.
  • All-Loving Hero: Loves the Earth, swore to protect it, and would die fighting for it rather than save his own skin.
  • Awesomeness by Analysis: He had vast previous knowledge of some of his enemies
  • Good-Looking Privates: Played by a former male model, no less.
  • Henshin Hero: The second one from Tsuburaya
  • The Hero: Main character
  • Honor Before Reason: Will keep a promise to be present during a sick child's surgery ("The brave one") and defend Earth ("The world's greatest invasion"), no matter if he's injured or in mortal danger.
  • Human Aliens: He was a shape-shifting alien who adopted a human identity in honor of a brave man he saved.
  • Human Outside, Alien Inside: No X-rays please, Anne!
  • Love Interest: To Anne.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Jarringly, his personality seems to have become much more harsh in Ultraman Leo, probably due to being unable to transform.
  • Manly Tears: After his defeat to the Gillas Brothers and Alien Magma.
  • Meaningful Name: Moroboshi = many stars
  • Mentor Occupational Hazard: A subversion in Ultraman Leo. He just vanishes instead of dying and goes back to the Land of Light, where he finishes healing his injuries, returning in time as Seven to give Leo one final pep talk before he fights Black Directive's last monster.
  • Morton's Fork: From Episode 48: Save yourself and live or save Earth and die. Dan took a third option.
  • Nice Guy: In general.
  • Non-Human Sidekick: His Capsule Monsters, and Sevengar in Ultraman Leo.
  • Official Couple: With Anne, if Super 8 Ultra Brothers and the last episode of Ultraseven X are to be believed.
  • Reality Ensues: He suffered injury after injury in giant form that eventually affected his human form. His superior warned him not to transform even as Pandon attacked the UG. After he fought Pandon to defeat the first time (and was curb-stomped throughout), he turned back into Dan and collapsed with a head injury, right where the kaijuu had kicked Seven.
    • Using his telekinetic powers in Ultraman Leo left him severely weakened, no doubt due to the same injuries that left him unable to transform.
  • Rock Beats Laser: Leg-twisting twin kaijuu beat hero's Eye Slugger in Ultraman Leo
  • Running Gag: His Ultra Eye gets stolen often.
  • Shapeshifter Mode Lock: The Ultra Eye melted down after the leg injury in his battle vs the Gillas Brothers, so he couldn't transform into giant size again until the trinket was repaired back on M-78.
  • Shell-Shocked Veteran: in Ultraman Leo, Dan is defeated by Alien Magma and the Gillas Brothers, which together with his injuries, his inability to transform, and newfound responsibilities (team captain, mentor to Gen), left him with PTSD. In the first episode, as he's talking to Gen about joining MAC, you can see his Thousand-Yard Stare, staring teary eyed into the distance. Later, tensions escalate between Gen and Dan due to Gen's inexperience and Dan's frustration and impatience.
  • Say My Name: On the receiving end of this. "DAAAAAAAAN"
  • Sixth Ranger: joined the Ultra Garrison last.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": Dan Moroboshe?
  • The Stoic: Usually...
    • Not So Stoic: In "Glory For Whom?", "Dark Zone" (look as he's trying to establish radio contact with the aliens), and Ultraman Leo
  • Transformation Trinket: The Ultra Eye, a set of red-rimmed clear goggles
  • Voluntary Shapeshifting: Being an alien, he transformed whenever the need arised.

Commander Kaoru Kiriyama
Portrayed by: Shoji Nakayama, Jean Fontaine (TNT dub)
A veteran of countless battles against alien invasions, Commander Kiriyama is a no-nonsense fellow, but also a kindhearted one.

Portrayed by: Shinsuke Achiha, Marc Denis (TNT dub)
The best shot on Ultra Garrison and Dan's closest friend on the team. Soga is pretty easygoing most of the time, but not be trifled with on the field.

Shigeru Furuhashi
Portrayed by: Sandayu Dokumamushi (credited as "Iyoshi Ishii"), Dean Hagopian (TNT dub)
The strongest man on Ultra Garrison. Furuhashi is a tough-looking but friendly man whose skills with a firearm are only outclassed by Soga.
  • Arbitrary Skepticism: In "The Saucers are Coming", complains about Saburo's sighting of flying saucers, dismissing it as a crank call. He, who has seen aliens face-to-face.
  • The Big Guy: His first scene was his exercise routine and The Narrator's description of his capabilities.
  • BFG: Shoots rounds instead of laser beams. Soga carries a similar weapon.
  • Butt-Monkey: Anything can happen to him (possession, injuries, humiliations, etc).
  • Character Aged with the Actor: Ishii played a much older Furuhashi (first as a team captain, like Kiriyama before him, and then as a TDF commander) in the '90s video specials.
  • A Day in the Limelight: "Return to the North!"
  • Expy: Of Arashi. Played by the same actor.
  • My Beloved Smother: In "Fly North!", Mrs. Furuhashi pretends to be ill so her son would visit her in Hokkaido and maybe even quit the Ultra Garrison. Upon hearing this, he went back to work. She then drops by for a visit just as he is about to crash his plane with an airliner thanks to the Kanan aliens.
  • Plucky Comic Relief: His reactions are priceless.

Portrayed by: Bin Furuya, Arthur Grosser (TNT dub)
The strategist of Ultra Garrison. Amagi is extremely intelligent, but also tends to be the most anxious in times of crisis.

Anne Yuri
Portrayed by: Yuriko Hishimi, Jane Woods (TNT dub)
Dan's love interest, as well as Ultra Garrison's nurse and communications operator. Anne is the youngest and sole female member of Ultra Garrison, but has proven herself to be quite skilled on the field.

Captain Kurata

Portrayed by: Hiroshi Minami
An old friend of Commander Kiriyama from their days as privates in Ultra Garrison, Captain Kurata is stationed on board Ultra Garrison's space station V3, but occasionally joins the Japan-based team on missions.
  • 11th-Hour Ranger: Joins the UG at the end to distract Pandon, allowing Seven to defeat it once and for all.
  • The Ace: He's a badass fighter pilot.
  • Cool Plane: The Station Hawk
  • Friendly Rival: To Kiriyama, whom he respects.
  • Hero of Another Story: He killed one or more Zampa aliens three years before the episode "Terror on the Moon".
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: He's rude, condescending, impatient, and antagonistic to those he deems incompetent, yet he's the first one to apologize to Dan/Seven (who had clashed with Kurata early in Episode 48) at the end.
  • Revenge: Alien Zampa wants him dead for what happened three years prior to "Terror on the Moon"
  • Secret Keeper: Found out Dan was Ultraseven at the same time as the UG, and didn't take it well.

    Capsule Monsters 

As a Whole:

A trio of kaiju that Dan releases from small capsules to fight in his stead whenever he is incapable of transforming into Ultraseven for some reason. Although only appearing in a handful of episodes, they've become very popular and often reappear in the Ultra Series alongside their master and other heroes, both human and Ultra.
  • Breakout Character: Miclas and Windam more than Agira, but all three are among the most well-remembered monsters from Ultraseven, even if they only appeared in a total of 7 episodes.
  • Butt-Monkey: They never won any battles and largely served as punching bags for the aliens and monsters until Dan could turn into Ultraseven.
  • Mons: Beating Pokémon by some 20+ years!
  • Sealed Good in a Can: Lived in small capsules that Dan carried in a case. When Dan needed to slow his enemies down, he threw a capsule into the distance and one of these kaiju would appear.
  • Undying Loyalty: To Dan.

First Appearance: The Invisible Invader
The first Capsule Monster we're introduced to, Windam is a robotic creature from the planet Metal in M78. Dan used Windam to destroy Alien Cool's spaceship armada and Alien Kanan's lighthouse spaceship, as well as to battle Alien Guts when the bird-like invaders challenged him to battle.

Due to his status as the very first of the Capsule Monsters to appear in the series, Windam has returned many more times in the later entries of the Ultra Series as a steadfast ally of the Ultras and humanity, most prominently in Ultraman Mebius and Ultraman Z.

First Appearance: The Secret of the Lake
A horned monster from the planet Buffalo in M78. Miclas was first seen when Dan used him to battle Eleking when his Ultra Eye was stolen by the Pitts. Later on, Miclas was brought back to fight the icy monster Gandar when Dan lost his Ultra Eye in the blizzard created by the latter kaiju.

Arguably the most popular of the Capsule Monsters, Miclas has made many reappearances in the Ultra Series, notably in Ultraman Mebius and Ultra Galaxy Mega Monster Battle NEO. In that time, he's been given characterization as timid until riled up by a strong but benevolent master.

  • The Big Guy: Most likely to use sheer force and often used by Dan against kaiju threats for such.
  • Breath Weapon: He showed the ability to fire a red heat ray from his mouth in his battle against Gandar, although this is never seen again in any subsequent appearances.
  • Diving Kick: With his jumping skills he's able to deliver devasting ones.
  • A Load of Bull: Meant to be reminiscent of a bipedal bison.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": Miclas, Mikulas, Miklas, Miculas...
  • Spring Jump: Can jump very high and very well. His landing is another story. He can also deliver a flying kick with this ability.
  • Took a Level in Badass: In Mega Monster Battle: Ultra Galaxy Legends he is able to earn his first true victory by defeating a resurrected Bemstar.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: He disappeared from the series after Episode 25. Later installments do show him alive and well, however.

First Appearance: The Wandering Planet
A dinosaur-like beast from the planet Animal in M78. Agira was first used to fight the monster Rigger when Dan discovered that the Ultra Eye couldn't work in its asteroid's magnetic field, and was later pitted against the Salome aliens' Robot Ultraseven while Dan went to retrieve the Ultra Eye that the invaders had separated him from.

Agira is not as popular as Miclas and Windam, and as a result, he is the least frequently reappearing of the Capsule Monsters, having been absent in most series that feature the other two. That said, he hasn't been totally forgotten and still has made a few reappearances to date.

    Monsters and Aliens 

Alien Cool
First Appearance: The Invisible Invader
Voiced by: Koji Yada
An alien invader who kidnapped humans by using his invisible spaceship and demanded that Earth submit to his control in exchange for the hostages. When Earth refused to accept the deal, he sent his invasion fleet to decimate Japan. Fortunately for the world, Ultraseven had arrived on the planet just a while before, now in the form of Dan Moroboshi and having his first encounter with Ultra Garrison.

Alien Wyann
First Appearance: The Green Terror
A vampiric plant-like alien that kidnapped an Ultra Garrison member named Ishiguro and impersonated him by using a mineral called Tilsonite 808. The alien would then transform into his true form every night to feed on blood, turning victims into more of his kind.

Alien Pitt
First Appearance: The Secret of the Lake
Voiced by: Reiko Takahashi (also human form actor of both)
A pair of aliens who disguised themselves as playful twin girls, bring the monster Eleking with them. They placed its tadpole form in a lake for safekeeping and then stole Dan's Ultra Eye to ensure Ultraseven could not stand in the way of Eleking. Since then, the Pitts have made a few more appearances in the Ultra Series, and almost always in association with Eleking.

First Appearance: The Secret of the Lake
An electric eel-based monster used by the Pitts as their weapon to conquer Earth. The alien girls hid the monster's tadpole form in a lake near their ship until the creature was ready to come out in its towering adult form and rampage across the countryside.

Eleking is one of Ultraseven's most recognizable foes, thus among the most popular monsters in the Ultra Series. Thus, he makes numerous appearances in the later entries of the franchise, including a heroic one in Ultra Galaxy Mega Monster Battle.

  • Attack the Tail: Miclas attempts this when fighting Eleking, only to fall victim to Eleking's electrified tail. And in the penultimate battle, Ultraseven severs Eleking's tail besides decapitating it.
  • Breakout Character: Has appeared in nearly every entry of the Ultra Series in some form since returning in Ultraman Max. He's also been on the side of the Ultramen and Rei's Gomora in several incarnations too!
  • Breath Weapon: Generally spits out a series of electrical disks, but later series have given him some additional ones.
  • Eyeless Face: Has two rotating antenna where most monsters usually have eyes.
  • Meaningful Name: It's a combination of "electric" and "king".
  • Metamorphosis Monster: Begins as a tadpole-like creature small enough to fit in a human hand before eventually growing into a bipedal salamander/electric eel monster standing 55 meters tall.
  • Off with His Head!: Ultraseven kills him this way.
  • Pet Monstrosity: Of the Pitts.
  • Prehensile Tail: A very long one for wrapping around enemies and shocking them to death.
  • Psycho Electric Eel: Is meant to resemble a mix of an electric eel and a typical kaiju.
  • Shock and Awe: His element, which allows him to spit various electrical attacks from his mouth, as well as shock opponents by touching them.

Alien Godola
First Appearance: Respond, Max!
Voiced by: Kyoji Kobayashi
Dastardly aliens who used an anti-gravity field to abduct ships at sea, capturing an Ultra Garrison investigation crew. They also attempted to destroy Ultra Garrison headquarters with a bomb and stole Dan's Ultra Eye in order to do it without opposition. The Godolas have since made a few reappearances in the Ultra Series, notably in the Heisei Ultraseven and Ultraman Geed.

Alien Bira
First Appearance: The Erased Time
Voiced by: Mahito Tsujimura
Alien invaders who froze time to mind control Ultra Garrison scientist Dr. Yushima, making him their minion and sending him to sabotage Ultra Garrison headquarters, for which they pinned the blame on Dan being a double agent in order to launch their attack without any opposition from Ultraseven.

Alien Pegassa
First Appearance: Dark Zone
Voiced by: Junichi Higasa
Aliens who built a utopian space city that ended up on a collision course with Earth when its power supply malfunctioned. One came to Ultra Garrison headquarters to request that humanity adjust Earth's orbit, or his people would be forced to blow up the planet. Meanwhile, Ultra Garrison was planning to destroy the Pegassa's space city too, hoping that the aliens would receive their warnings to evacuate.

Alien Pegassa was brought back in the Heisei Ultraseven series, but more notably, an individual named Pega appears as one of the main characters of Ultraman Geed and the best friend of the eponymous hero's human identity.

  • Anti-Villain: Although very condescending to more primitive species, they were just wanting to protect their doomed city.
  • Casting a Shadow: Showed the ability to cloak himself in shadows.
  • Last Villain Stand: A tragic example. The Pegassa on Earth sets up a bomb to destroy the planet to save his people. When Dan arrives he informs him he's too late, his people and city are gone. Enraged by this he decides to set off the bomb anyway to avenge them. Interestingly unlike most examples of this trope the Pegassa lives in the end, getting out of there after Dan becomes Ultraseven.
  • Nuke 'em: Pegassa City was destroyed with a nuclear missile before it could collide with Earth. Unfortunately it killed most of the Pegassans, as they underestimated the damage it could do. A few were able to escape and settled on the planet.
  • The Right of a Superior Species: They believed humans were best destroyed when learning that they were incapable of changing their planet's orbit. The Pegassan on Earth tried to detonate the planet so that Pegassa City would survive.
  • Too Clever by Half: Clever enough to save themselves after their planet was destroyed, clever enough to build a floating space city and manufacture everything they needed (even air), but naive or arrogant in their belief the people of Earth are willing or able to shift the planet's orbit.
  • Villain: Exit, Stage Left: The Pegassa that fought Seven ran into the night after failing to blow up the Earth.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: They simply wanted to save their skins from total destruction even if it meant blowing up Earth!
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: The original one ran off, never to be seen again. More memebers of species did return in an episode in the Heisei series, which revealed other Pegassans survived and now live on Earth. They have split into two groups, debating whether to live amongst the humans or avenge Pegassa City's destruction.
  • What Measure Is a Non-Human?: A major element of them was the moral dilemma between blowing up Pegassa City or risking the destruction of both the planet and the city.

Alien Quraso
First Appearance: Alien Prisoner 303
A homicidal maniac from a distant world who came to Earth to escape his planet's lawmen. There, he made a life out of murdering humans and guzzling down any available gasoline he could find, which ended up attracting the attention of Ultra Garrison.
  • Aliens Are Bastards: A rare aversion here. The Quraso race themselves are not bad or even the problem of the episode, it’s one dangerous criminal from their planet. The Quraso race themselves even sent a warning to the Ultra Garrison about the criminal. It’s one of the rare times an episode ends with Ultra Garrison on good terms with an alien race.
  • Ax-Crazy: A serial killer from an alien planet.
  • Breath Weapon: A stream of fire.
  • Bizarre Alien Biology: Can drink gasoline with no ill effects!
  • Dirty Coward: He loves murdering but at the same time often attempts to run away the second anyone could fight back comes along. It’s also implied in his final moments, he’s crying for mercy before he explodes.
  • Kill It with Fire: Yes, the fire-breathing, gas-guzzling alien is burned to death from crashing a plane in an escape attempt.
  • Mind Control: Able to release a flash from his forehead that puts people who see it under his control, which he uses to hold a family hostage and later get Anne to drive him to Ultra Garrison base.
  • Nothing Is Scarier: For most of the episode, it plays out like murder mystery with the alien only being shown in parts and his exact identity left ambiguous until later.
  • Reality Ensues: An alien who drinks a lot of gasoline is naturally explosive.
  • Serial Killer: Stated to have been a serial killer on his home planet before coming to earth where he continues his murder spree.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": Kyuraso or Quraso?

Alien Metron
First Appearance: The Targeted Town
Voiced by: Shinji Nakae
An alien invader who disguised himself as a cigarette deliveryman in order to place tiny red crystals inside cigarettes from vending machines all around the town of Kitagawa, causing anyone who smoked those cigarettes to go temporarily insane and attack others in brief but violent rampages.

Alien Metron is one of the most iconic aliens in the Ultra Series, with his strange appearance, sunset battle with Ultraseven, and friendly coffee table chat with Dan making him incredibly recognizable in Japan. Thus, Metron has made him numerous reappearances in the franchise against many new generations of Ultra heroes.

  • Affably Evil: Very friendly and polite to the point of having a cup of tea with the characters.
  • The Anticipator: His greeting to Dan at the end: "Welcome, UltraSeven. I've been expecting you."
  • Breakout Villain: Quickly became one of the most popular aliens in the show. The famous coffee table discussion scene in his debut borders on Memetic Mutation in Japan.
  • Dub Name Change: The Kiirlons in the TNT English dub.
  • Good Smoking, Evil Smoking: Most certainly of the evil variety as he uses cigarettes to turn humans to violence.
  • Half the Man He Used to Be: In Seven, as well as Ace.
  • Hate Plague: He plants little crystals inside cigarettes that makes people go crazy.
  • No Mouth: Has a series of yellow patches that flashes when he talks!
  • Paper Tiger: Warns Seven to stay out of their business claiming they don’t want to kill another alien. In truth, they stood no chance against Ultraseven and immediately attempt to retreat the second Dan transforms.
  • Starfish Aliens: Meant to resemble an upright shellfish of some sort.

Alien Chibu
First Appearance: Android Zero Directive
Portrayed by: Kenjiro Uemura (human form actor)
An alien who disguised himself as an elderly toymaker to make disturbingly realistic toy weapons and little badges for children while sending his Android Zero-One to assassinate Dan. He intended to use the badges to receive radio waves of his that would mind control children into soldiers that would kill all the adults on Earth.

Although Alien Chibu is not considered one of Ultraseven's most iconic foes, an individual of the species named Exceller surprisingly appeared as the Big Bad of Ultraman Ginga S.

  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: When the Ultra Garrison first meets him he seems like a kindly old man handing out toys to children, but in truth, he’s an evil alien invader who isn’t above using Child Soldiers.
  • Brain Monster: His true form is one with tentacles.
  • Child Soldiers: Plans to brainwash a large portion of the children in the city to use them as soldiers to conquer the earth.
  • Mind Control: Essentially how he'll take over the world — by turning kids into child soldiers with it.
  • My Brain Is Big: It's more than half of his body!
  • My Little Panzer: Dangerously realistic toy weapons are his choice of weapon, complete with tiny tanks and planes to shoot people.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": Chibull, Chibu, Chiburu?
  • Starfish Aliens: His normal form, a brain with a face and tentacles.

Android Zero-One
First Appearance: Android Zero Directive
Portrayed by: Yukiko Kobayashi
Alien Chibu's robotic female servant, which he sent out to locate and assassinate Dan Moroboshi using a deadly electric joy buzzer. During an early attempt, she mistook Furuhashi for Dan, almost killing him and leading Ultra Garrison to investigate for her motives and eventually uncover Alien Chibu's plan.

Alien Icarus
First Appearance: The Suspicious Neighbour
Portrayed by: Ren Yamamoto (human form actor)
An alien who disguised himself as a human and moved into a house to work on a piece of technology that would allow his homeworld's troops to get to Earth through another dimension, only to be spotted by a boy next door whose suspicions of his neighbour led to Ultra Garrison discovering his invasion plot. Alien Icarus has reappeared a few times since then, notably as an antagonist in Ultraman Ginga.
  • Badass in a Nice Suit: Its human form rocks a two-piece suit with a turtleneck.
  • Bat Out of Hell: An evil alien invader who resembles a bat.
  • Bizarre Alien Biology: Hairless body of an elephant, ears of a bat, head of a bat/rat, hair on top, high-pitched screech...
  • Dub Name Change: To a Kyalian in English.
  • Phantom Zone: The Fourth Dimension, which his species planned to use as a shortcut to invading Earth.
  • Pointy Ears: Like those of a bat. They're also capable of firing hailstorms of energy needles.
  • Spanner in the Works: His plan probably would have gone off without a hitch it wasn’t for a little kid noticing his strange activities
  • Teleport Spam: Uses a short-distance of this briefly during the battle with Ultraseven.

Alien Wild
First Appearance: Fly to the Mountain of Evil
Voiced by: Eiji Maruyama
A yeti-like extraterrestrial who came to Earth in order to help his species gain eternal youth. To this end, he used a camera that trapped the souls of humans in its film whenever it took a picture of the victims, managing to "kill" Dan Moroboshi with it.

First Appearance: Fly to the Mountain of Evil
A robotic dragon able to transform into a flying saucer, and used by Alien Wild as his ride to Earth. He stored Narse within his mountain lair until his plans were foiled by Ultra Garrison, forcing him to call out the robot to destroy Ultra Garrison and flee Earth.

Narse would later reappear in Mega Monster Battle: Ultra Galaxy Legends under control of Alien Zetton, attempting to crush the Pendragon with his coils and battling Ultraman Dyna.

Alien Spell
First Appearance: From Another Planet with Love
Aliens who came to Earth in search of the blood of young women to cure their radiation sickness after having devastated their homeworld through nuclear war. One was sent to sell watches that drained victims of their blood, while he dated a friend of Anne named Sanae. But when Sanae's little brother tried a watch, the aliens discovered that children's blood was even better!

However, this alien is better known for being in "The Banned Episode", as an atomic bomb survivor noticed the Unfortunate Implications they had on bomb survivors (who face terrible discrimination in Japanese society). DVD releases won't include the episode either (it was featured on the TNT dub though), so we likely won't being seeing this alien in a very long time.

Alien Iyros
First Appearance: The Man from V3
Voiced by: Koji Yada
An alien who made an unprovoked attack Ultra Garrison's space station V3 and hid on Earth when pursued by the space station's Captain Kurata. He kidnapped Furuhashi and Amagi, creating clones of them as spies, and made incessant demands to Ultra Garrison for fuel to be able to leave in peace.
  • Breath Weapon: A series of small energy bolts.
  • Capture and Replicate: Captured Amagi and Furuhashi, sending duplicates to the UG base to steal fuel, possibly blow the base up.
  • I Lied: Oh, he never planned on leaving Earth in peace once given the spaceship supplies.
  • Spin Attack: Can spin his body very quickly to deflect attacks.
  • Starfish Aliens: Played with a rubber suit, but nowhere near humanoid.

King Joe
First Appearance: The Ultra Garrison Goes West Pt. 1
The Pedans' ultimate war machine, sent to Earth in the form of four spaceships to attack an important international meeting in Japan. King Joe's strength was so great that it easily defeated Ultraseven, leaving Ultra Garrison to figure out how to bypass the robot's nigh-invincible Pedanium plating.

King Joe is the one of most iconic and popular kaiju in the Ultra Series, and has made numerous reappearances in other entries of the franchise, often as a Pedan monster, but sometimes under other aliens' control. He has also received an incredibly powerful arm cannon in several incarnations, beginning with Ultra Galaxy Mega Monster Battle.

  • Achilles' Heel: Being made of Pedanium, he's vulnerable to a certain type of chemical.
  • A.I. Is a Crapshoot: In the Heisei series, Ultra Garrison rebuilds him as an Earth defender. It still remembers its original purpose.
  • Barrier Warrior: Displayed the ability to coat itself in an electrical force field that serves not only to block energy rays, but zap enemies.
  • Breakout Villain: Has appeared in nearly every entry of the Ultra Series since returning in Ultraman Max.
  • Combining Mecha: Made from four spaceships that are capable of separating and combining at will, even in the middle of a fight to dodge attacks.
  • Dragon-in-Chief: To the Pedans — a trait that has been carried in most of his later appearances. While the Pedans themselves are hardly a threat to an Ultra, King Joe is their trump card.
  • Dragon Their Feet: In the Heisei continuity. After being rebuilt, it remembers its original purpose and continues its late creators' mission.
  • Eye Beams: Has this ability (called the Dest Ray), though he usually prefers to just use his own two fists. Given how tough he is, it's excusable.
  • Humongous Mecha: A gigantic robot, and the most famous one in the Ultra Series.

The Pedans reveal they never had any intentions for peace by not only flat-out lying to Dan, but reveal they were always interested in conquering Earth anyway.

  • Humans Are the Real Monsters: IF the Nonmalts were telling the truth, then humans are really invaders from another planet.

  • Crying Wolf: Essentially, the nature of his whole gambit. He didn't count on Ultra Garrison being forced to take the photos seriously anyway.
  • Faux Affably Evil: Acts very friendly to Saburo, but was really just using him as a pawn.
  • Master of Illusion: How he was able to hide his enormous saucer fleet. Also used in his battle against Ultraseven where he uses loads of psychedelic visuals to confuse both the hero and viewers.

Alien Salome
First Appearance: The Duel: Dan vs. Seven
Portrayed by: Masao Takahashi (leader), Kadena Kiyomi (female individual)
A race of super-intelligent aliens who sought to conquer Earth by creating a robot duplicate of Ultraseven to do battle with Earth's defender. However, to complete the project they needed to capture Dan in order to take the Ultra Eye from him and replicate Ultraseven's abilities in their robot.

The Salome also appeared with a major role in Ultra Galaxy Legend Gaiden: Ultraman Zero vs. Darklops Zero (the prequel to Ultraman Zero: The Revenge of Belial), where they use more robot Ultramen (along with the original Robot Ultraseven) and a mechanical doppelganger Rei's Gomora.

  • Human Aliens: It would seem so since they don't ever take any other forms.
  • Insufferable Genius: The greatest minds in the universe and very pretentious about it.
  • Meaningful Name: Salome was the daughter of King Herod in the Bible.
  • Mind Probe: They use this get the necessary information from Dan.

Robot Ultraseven
First Appearance: The Duel: Dan vs. Seven
A mechanical doppleganger of Ultraseven that was the Salome aliens' weapon for conquering Earth. However, the aliens could not duplicate Ultraseven's powers, and thus had to capture Dan to learn his secrets before unleashing their creation out to wreak havoc and break Ultra Garrison's trust in their longtime ally.
  • Beam-O-War: Does this with the real Ultraseven's Emerium Beam.
  • Evil Knockoff: The first robotic one in the Ultra Series and possesses all the basic abilities of our hero (the Eye Slugger, Emerium Beam, and Wide Shot).
  • Humongous Mecha: Being Robot Ultraseven, duh.
  • Mecha-Mooks: Robot Ultraseven is later revealed to be one of legions upon legions of robot Ultramen and other Ultra Heroes like Rei's Gomora that the Salome have constructed.
  • Robot Me: Beating Mechagodzilla by six years!

Alien Hook
First Appearance: Who Are You?
A race of aliens who used an apartment complex to hide their base, replacing the buildings every night with exact lookalikes and disguising themselves as the denizens. This plan ended up attracting the attention of Ultra Garrison when a drunken man returned home late at night and found that none of his friends or family recognized him. Alien Hook has appeared in a few more Ultra Series since.
  • The Blank: No face, just a series of ridges.
  • Invisibility: One of their abilities.
  • Master of Illusion: Created a perfect replica of an apartment complex, complete with them disguised as the denizens. They also use this ability in combat to confuse Ultraseven with psychedelic visuals.
  • Pig Man: Intended to resemble a faceless one with the ears and a vague snout.
  • Pointy Ears: In their normal form, similar to those of a pig.
  • Teleport Spam: Which they like to combine with their invisibility and illusory abilities for maximum confusion.
  • Un-person: What they did to that poor fellow returning home unaware that his family and friends were replaced by impersonators.
  • Wolfpack Boss: Ultraseven has to fight three of them.

Alien Ghose
First Appearance: The Ultimate Invasion Pt. 1
Alien invaders who declared that the human race must either give them Earth in exchange for Mars or be driven to extinction. Refusing either choice, the Terrestrial Defense Forces and Ultra Garrison waged war against the aliens, who sent their monster Pandon to decimate them and began launching attacks across the globe.
  • Dub Name Change: Referred as the Sirrulians of Winser in the dub.
  • Hand Blast: They can shoot bolts of energy that create force bubbles around targets, which they use to take Amagi hostage.
  • Knight of Cerebus: The first invasion in Ultraseven in which Japan is not the only country attacked definitely makes them this for UG.
  • No Mouth: Despite being capable of speech (albeit mostly gibbering noises), they don't have a mouth.
  • Sadistic Choice: Their decree to Earth — Go live on Mars or we'll annihilate you all.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": Known variously as the the Ghose, the Ghos, and the Goths, due to the lack of a "th" sound in the Japanese language.
  • This Is a Drill: They employ giant drill-nukes capable of destroying entire cities. These drill-nukes can go from their underground base in Japan to the other side of a planet within seconds.
  • The Unintelligible: They're incapable of speaking human languages, so they kidnap Amagi to do the talking for them.

First Appearance: The Ultimate Invasion Pt. 1
A two-headed, one-necked monster used by the Ghose as their ultimate weapon of war against Ultra Garrison's forces. Ultraseven managed to slice off one of its arms and one of its legs, but was critically wounded in the battle. Worse still, the Ghose retrieved Pandon's body and replaced its missing limbs with cybernetic ones, creating Reconstructed Pandon.

Remembered as one of Ultraseven's most dangerous foes, Pandon is a popular choice for Ultra Series reappearances due to its sheer popularity and recognizability. It is also worth noting that later incarnations of the monster have often been depicted with two heads on two necks as opposed to the original two-headed, one-necked creature.

  • An Arm and a Leg: Seven chops one of each off, but the Ghose give him new ones, durable enough to actually catch the Eye Slugger without injury.
  • Breakout Villain: Pandon is one of Ultraseven's most popular foes due to his sheer strength, and has received numerous reappearances and redesigns for it.
  • Breath Weapon: Two streams of fire. Later incarnations added energy beams too, one red and one blue.
  • Cyborg: As Reconstructed Pandon, it has a mechanical arm and a mechanical leg.
  • Dub Name Change: A Winser Fire-Beather in the TNT dub.
  • Meaningful Name: Pandon is named after Pandora of Greek mythology, as he first comes out of a large box-like object (Pandora's Box!) to bring pain and suffering into the world.
  • Multiple Head Case / Two-Faced: Two heads. The original one had one neck while many of the later incarnations had two, separating the heads. The concept art had it as a two-headed, two-necked monster as well, but it was changed because there was trouble operating both heads on the suit.
  • Off with His Head!: Seven finally finishes him off with an Eye Slugger that decapitates him.
  • Pet Monstrosity: Of the Ghose.
  • Playing with Fire: Two streams of flame are better than one! And of all the fire-breathing monsters in the franchise, few have been more closely associated with fire than Pandon, who has appeared as the King Demon Beast of Fire in Ultraman Orb and was nicknamed the Twin-Headed Flame Beast in Ultraman Ginga
  • We Can Rebuild Him: What the Ghose did with him.
  • The Worf Effect: Pummels Ultraseven tirelessly, but...
    • Worf Had the Flu: This was mostly because Seven was far too injured to fight. He couldn't even create an Emerium Beam!

How well does it match the trope?
