- 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.

- 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

- 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.

- Five-Man Band: All but Kiriyama fit into the trope very snugly.
- Secret Keeper: First Anne, then the rest of the team, in the last episode.
- Portrayed by: Kohji Moritsugu, Rob Roy (TNT dub)
- 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
- Changing of the Guard: With Gen Ootori in Ultraman Leo and Masaki Kazamori in Ultraseven Evolution.
- Character Aged with the Actor: Kohji Moritsugu has played Dan for over fifty years.
- Doppelgänger: Jiro Satsuma, whom he identifies as a clone. Dan impersonates Masaki Kazamori in the video specials.
- 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 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.

- Sixth Ranger: joined the Ultra Garrison last.
- Spell My Name with an "S": Dan Moroboshe?

- 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.

- 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.
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
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.
- Brainwashed and Crazy: By Alien Kanan. Seven just wore him down.

- First Appearance: The Secret of the Lake
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.

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.
- Badass Normal: Despite possessing no powers (beyond the supposed super speed below), Agira is just as capable as Miclas and Windam are in battles with other monsters.
- Dub Name Change: In his first appearance in the TNT dub, they call him Burken, but in his reappearance he's back to being Agira.

- 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 Dorako.
- What Happened to the Mouse?: The ending of his second and last fight in the series (against Robot Ultraseven) is rather abrupt. He does return to the franchise later on, none the worse for wear.

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.

- Well-Intentioned Extremist: They simply wanted to save their skins from total destruction even if it meant blowing up Earth!

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.
- First Appearance: Alien Prisoner 303
- Aliens Are Bastards: A rare aversion here. The Quraso race themselves are not bad or even the problem of the episode, its one dangerous criminal from their planet. The Quraso race themselves even sent a warning to the Ultra Garrison about the criminal. Its one of the rare times an episode ends with Ultra Garrison on good terms with an alien race.

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.

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.

- Dragon Their Feet: In the Heisei continuity. After being rebuilt, it remembers its original purpose and continues its late creators' mission.

- Humongous Mecha: A gigantic robot, and the most famous one in the Ultra Series.
- Implacable Man: His armour makes him nearly unkillable except when hit by the most powerful attacks.
- The Juggernaut: Huge, slow, but nearly unstoppable. Taken Up to Eleven when equipped with the arm cannon, which actually killed other monsters in a single shot.

- Human Aliens: Though not seen beyond the Anderson double, they are revealed to be such in Ultra Galaxy.
- Humans Are the Real Monsters: If humans hadn't visited the Pedan planet without warning, the whole crisis would have never happened! Then again, the Pedan leader revealed they always had plans to invade Earth anyway.
- I Lied: Seriously, Anderson? You flat-out promised alien-on-alien with Dan not to invade Earth, and now you call for the invasion fleet!
- Jerk with a Heart of Jerk: This is what the Alien Pedan truly are. They are first introduced attacking the Earth and sending King Joe to attack Ultraseven. When Dan confronts Fake Dorothy, they claim that they wouldnt have invaded if it werent for the satellite. Dan shows sympathy and makes an alien-to-alien peace deal with the Pedans, which they appear to accept. 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.

For a while, it was believed that, much like the aforementioned Alien Spell, this monster was effectively Exiled from Continuity due to controversy surrounding its episode (which was removed from circulation following the 2011 Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster, as said episode revolved around nuclear deterrents). However, these fears seem to have been baseless, as it returned in Ultraman Geed.

- Does This Remind You of Anything?: Although western viewers my be inclined to think of the Native Americans, the backstory of the Nonmalts was based on Okinawan writer Tetsuo Kinjo's own experiences with the repression of the people of the Ryukyu Islands by the imperial Japanese government in World War 2.
- Dub Name Change: The Tomatans.
- Humans Are the Real Monsters: IF the Nonmalts were telling the truth, then humans are really invaders from another planet.
- Ultraterrestrials: If what Shinichi (the eponymous envoy) said was true, then the Nonmalts are the original inhabitants of Earth.

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!
