Ultra Seven

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ultraseven_movie_i.png
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.
  • 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.
  • Off with His Head!: Seven's main use for the Eye Slugger was decapitation.
  • 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
  • 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.
  • Screw the Rules, I'm Doing What's Right!: In Heisei Ultra Seven: I am an Earthling, despite being warned that Ultra Warriors cannot interfere in any civil war and the fact that the Nonmalts are the true Earth natives, he decided to disobey it and save humanity due to his attachments to them after living on Earth for a long time.
  • 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
  • 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

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/dan_97.jpg
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
  • Doppelgänger: Jiro Satsuma, whom he identifies as a clone. Dan impersonates Masaki Kazamori in the video specials.

Commander Kaoru Kiriyama

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/kiriyama.jpg
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.

Soga

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/soga.jpg
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

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/furuhashi.jpg
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.
  • A Day in the Limelight: "Return to the North!"
  • 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, humilitaions, etc).
  • 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.

Amagi

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/amagi.jpg
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

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/anne_0.jpg
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

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.

    Capsule Monsters 
These three monsters are used by Dan 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 make regular reappearances in the Ultra Series.

As a Whole:

  • 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.
  • Buttmonkey: All 3 in their original appearances. They never won any battles and largely served as punching bags for the aliens and monsters until Dan could turn into Ultraseven. Finally lifted from them in Ultraman Mebius and climaxed in in Mega Monster Battle: Ultra Galaxy Legends where Windam beats Salamandoras, Miclas defeats Bemstar, and Agira kills Dorako with no help from any Ultra heroes.
  • Mons: Beating Pokemon by some 20+ years!
  • Pet Monstrosity: A rare non-evil example towards Ultraseven/Dan.
  • 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.

Windam

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/windom_movie_ii.png
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, against whom he was blasted into scrap metal.

Despite his untimely death, Windam has returned many more times in the later entries of the Ultra Series, most prominently in Ultraman Mebius.


Miclas

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/miclas_movie.png
First Appearance: The Secret of the Lake
A horned monster from the planet Buffalo in M78, Miclas is the most popular of the Capsule Monsters. He was used to battle Eleking when Dan's Ultra Eye was stolen by the Pitts, and later on, Miclas fought Gandar when Dan lost his Ultra Eye in the blizzard created by the monster.

Miclas has made many reappearances in the Ultra Series since, 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.


Agira

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/agira_lgnds_8.png
First Appearance: The Wandering Planet
A dinosaur-like beast from the planet Animal in M78, Agira was used to fight the monster Rigger when Dan discovered that the Ultra Eye couldn't work on the planetoid's magnetic field, and was later pitted against Alien Salome's Robot Ultraseven while Dan went to retrieve the Ultra Eye that the Salomes had separated him from.

Agira is not as popular as Miclas or Windam, thus did not appear in Ultraman Mebius or the Heisei Ultraseven series like them, but finally made a reappearance in Mega Monster Battle: Ultra Galaxy Legends.


    Monsters and Aliens 

Alien Cool

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/alien_cool.png
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

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ultrsvn_aln_wyn.png
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

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/alienpitt.jpg
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.

Eleking

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/eleking.png
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.


Alien Godola

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/godola_new.jpg
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

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/bira_i.png
First Appearance: The Erased Time
Voiced by: Mahito Tsujimura
Alien invaders who freeze 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

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/pegassa_5_5.jpg
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 engines 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.
  • The Right of a Superior Species: They believed humans were best destroyed when learning that they were incapable of adjusting their planet's orbit.
  • Villain: Exit, Stage Left: Ran into the night after failing to blow up Seven or 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 where a few have returned, debating whether to work with humans or kill them off.
  • What Measure Is a Non-Human?: A major element of them was the moral dilemma between blowing up the city or blowing up the planet and the city.

Alien Quraso

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/quraso.png
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!
  • 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.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": Kyuraso or Quraso?

Alien Metron

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/metron_classic_8.png
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 Kitegawa, 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.


Alien Chibu

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/alien_chibu_ginga_s_5.png
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 to 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.


Android Zero-One

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/zero_one.png
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

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/icary.JPG
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 him and 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.
  • Dub Name Change: To a Kyalian in English.
  • Phantom Zone: The Fourth Dimension.
  • Pointy Ears: Like those of a bat. They're also capable of firing hailstorms of energy needles.
  • Teleport Spam: Uses a short-distance of this briefly during the battle with Ultraseven.

Alien Wild

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/wild_new.jpg
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.

Narse

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/narse_i.png
First Appearance: Fly to the Mountain of Evil
A robotic dragon able to transform into a flying saucer, and used by Alien Wo;d 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

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/alienspell.jpg
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. 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

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/iyros2.jpg
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.
  • 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

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/king_j0e.png
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, UG 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 in most series and Alien Zetton in Ultraman Max. 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.
  • 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.
  • Tuckerization: Named after Tetsuo Kinjo, a friend of Eiji Tsuburaya and head writer for Ultraseven and Ultraman (with some work on Ultra Q).
  • The Worf Effect: Absolutely pummels Ultraseven in the first fight. It tends to be a recurring trait for him in many other appearances, notably Ultra Galaxy.

Alien Pedan

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ultr_glxy_aln_pndn.png
First Appearance: The Ultra Garrison Goes West Pt. 1
Portrayed by: Shun Yashiro, Hiroshi Tanabe (voices), Linda Hardisty (Dorothy Anderson impersonator)
A race of aliens who declared war on Earth when a Terrestrial Defense Forces satellite visiting their planet was mistaken for a weapon. They launched their assault by sending an assassin disguised an American TDF agent to kill all foreigners on Japanese soil, as well as calling in their robot King Joe to battle Ultraseven.

The Pedans have only appeared a few times in the Ultra Series since their debut, but one of their more notable ones would have to be in [[Ultra Galaxy Mega Monster Battle NEO, where a group of them were one of the Big Bads.


  • Dub Name Change: They become the Rodanians in the TNT dub.
  • 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 wouldn’t have invaded if it weren’t 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.
  • Jerkass: Even if Earth started the war in the first place, the Pedans aren't exactly a friendly people as seen in later series.

Annon

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/annon_wowow.png
First Appearance: Eyes Shining in the Darkness
Voiced by: Shinji Nakae
An incorporeal eye-like entity from the planet Annon who was separated from his body when he arrived on Earth via a crashed rocket ship that had been sent to his homeworld a few months back. He befriended a boy named Hiroshi to help him reunite with his body.
  • Brown Note: In eyeball form, Annon can create a high frequency sound to give others agonizing migraines.
  • Eye Beams: His power in rock monster form.
  • Faceless Eye: His normal form.
  • Non-Malicious Monster: He never wanted to conquer Earth or destroy cities, he just wanted to tell humanity to leave him alone.
  • Rock Monster: An interesting example as the monster is normally a hollow shell, but Annon needs it to be able to make contact with the physical world.

U-Tom

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ultrsvn_utm.png
First Appearance: Underground: Go! Go! Go!
A mysterious class of robots that guard an abandoned subterranean city and its seismic machine. Ultra Garrison ran into them when they had to rescue a miner trapped underground by the earthquakes created by the enigmatic underground city.
  • Achilles' Heel: Their exposed facial workings mean shooting them in the head disables them.
  • Arm Cannon: Their weapon.
  • The Blank: Just a series of gears instead of a face.
  • Drop the Hammer: Their left hands are compacted and heavy, essentially made to act as sledgehammers in melee combat.
  • Tin-Can Robot: What they are essentially.

Alien Bell

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/alien_bell.png
First Appearance: Escape Space X
A cicada-like alien who traps Soga and Amagi in an alien jungle realm called Space X to let them die lost and confused. In the meantime, he focused on tormenting Dan and Ultra Garrison with his bell-like cries whenever they tried to contact their vanished teammates.

Gumonga

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/gumonga_i.png
First Appearance: Escape Space X
A species of giant spider that lived in Alien Bell’s awful jungle realm of Space X to attack unlucky prisoners for his entertainment. Soga and Amagi encountered quite a few of these around Space X.

Space Ticks

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ticksoffalsespace.png
First Appearance: Escape Space X
When Soga first woke up in Space X, he was attacked by these strange extraterrestrial mites, which latched onto his body in an attempt to get at his blood. He killed them pretty quickly though.
  • We Hardly Knew Ye: Only appear for a singly scene as a minor nuisance and have never been brought up again since.

Sunflan

First Appearance: Escape Space X
A few of these carnivorous plants attacked Amagi and Soga as they wandered about in Bell's Space X. Fortunately, Dan, Anne, and Kiriyama arrived just in time to rescue them.
See Ultraman

Alien Bado

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/alien_badoo.png
First Appearance: Project Blue
Voiced by: Ryuji Saikachi
A ruthless race of aliens who had destroyed all life on Pluto thousands of years ago and now wanted to do the same to Earth. However, the Terrestrial Defense Forces had set up a powerful force field around Earth called Project Blue, so the aliens kidnapped the project’s head, Dr. Miyabe, to gain the plans for the shield.
  • Combat Pragmatist: The head Bado was shown to be a dirty fighter, using all sorts of underhanded tactics from pretending to surrender to knuckle spikes.
  • Dub Name Change: The leader is renamed Lord Wayne.
  • The Emperor: Self-declared ruler of the universe.
  • Invisibility: Dan is attacked by a Bado soldier using this. Killing him ends it though.
  • Jerkass: Cruel, sadistic, and arrogant beyond belief.
  • Kick the Dog: When Dr. Miyabe refuses to give away his plans, they proceed to torment his wife.
  • Mad Bomber: The Bado also place a world-destroying bomb in the Earth's core, but Seven gets rid of it before it detonates.
  • Omnicidal Maniac: Unlike most Ultra Aliens, they were solely interested in destroying all life on Earth rather than conquest.
  • Tom the Dark Lord: Wayne, Lord of the Universe in the dub.

Alien Shaplay

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/shap.png
First Appearance: Destroy Epicenter X
Portrayed by: Takashi Kitahara (human form actor)
An alien who came to Earth in search of a mineral from the center of the world called Ultonium. He disguised himself as the cheerful assistant of a crabby old seismologist named Dr. Iwamura to keep Ultra Garrison busy while they investigated the activities of his monster Giladorus.

Despite being one of Ultraseven's more obscure foes, Alien Shaplay has made a surprising number of reappearances against the Ultras and their allies in the Ultra Series, beginning with the movie Mega Monster Battle: Ultra Galaxy Legends.


  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: Disguised as a friendly, young scientist. Nobody would have guessed he was the alien.

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).

  • 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.

They dropped it on Earth in a gigantic box-like capsule and it proceeded to do much destruction to 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 rebuilt its missing limbs, 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.

  • 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 ones 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: The original one pummeled 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!
