Riku Asakura/Ultraman Geed
Portrayed by: Tatsuomi Hamada (live), Hideyoshi Iwata (suit), Nobuyuki Hiyama (Geed Riser voice)
Tropes that apply to him in general
- Aliens Among Us: Like a number of previous Ultras, his Ultra form is his true form and his human form is a disguise. Unlike them, he was completely unaware of this until he first met RE.M and actually born on Earth.
- Archnemesis Dad: Inevitable, given that his father's the local Satanic Archetype.
- Artificial Human: He was created in a lab from Belial's DNA by Kei.
- Adorkable: For starters, he got the "Here we go!" portion of his transformation catchphrase from a TV show he watches.
- Anti-Anti-Christ: In spite of his heritage, Riku is without hesitation a hero.
- Ascended Fanboy: Riku grew up watching the Show Within a Show tokusatsu Donshine and ever since wishes to be a hero. His wish is granted as he became Ultraman Geed, though it also crosses with Blessed with Suck since his face matches that of his own father, Belial.
- Big Brother Instinct: Whatever you do, don't aim your evil schemes at Eri. You will regret it big time.
- Beauty Equals Goodness: Ultimately defied. He has a chance to use an illusion creating device to mask his Ultra form's resemblance to Belial, and is tempted, but in the end chooses to change people's minds by being a hero rather than just looking like one.
- By The Power Of Gray Skull: He starts off with "You go!note I go! Here we go!", which is punctuated by turning on the Ultra Capsules, then loading both of the activated Capsules into the Loading Knuckle, and turns one the Geed Riser. He says a form-specific short phrase after the Geed Riser goes "FUSION RISE!"
- In-series quotes:
- Primitive: "Time to get ready!"
- Solid Burning: "Time for my courage to burn brightly!"
- Acro Smasher: "I'll show you something shocking!"
- Magnificent: "I'll defend hope!"
- Royal Mega Master: "Time to defy fate!"
- Ultraman Fusion Fight! Capsule Fusion quotes:
- Shining Mystic: "Aim for it! The peak!"
- Tri-Slugger: "Fly! Light blades!"
- Mugen Crosser: "Challenge them! The mysteries!"
- Brave Challenger: "Seize them! The bonds!"
- Fire Leader: "Show it! The future!"
- Le-Over Fist: "Boil it! The fighting spirit!"
- Mighty Trekker: "Go for it! The distance!"
- Photon Knight: "Bloom! Chivalry!"
- In-series quotes:
- The Cape: Riku became Geed and remains him because he simply wants to save innocent people from danger and will save the day even if everyone is scared of his appearance. In other words: he's an ideal Ultra in sharp contrast to his selfish, Fallen Hero father.
- Catchphrase: "Sitting around doing nothing will get us nowhere!"note , which he shortens it to "Geed".
- Clones Are People, Too: Is basically a modified clone of Belial created by Kei as part of his and Belial's plans. Despite this, Riku manages to come off as in some ways more human than both of them.
- Contrasting Sequel Main Character: Riku compared to his predecessor Gai Kurenai. Gai is a Shell-Shocked Veteran and Experienced Protagonist who has confidence issues due to him lacks faith in himself and his own power. But as the time goes, he starts to trust his own strength, allowing him to regain his true form, Orb Origin. Riku, on the other hand, is a youth and a New Meat to the world of an Ultra Warrior. Once he fights his father face-to-face, he decides to choose his own path, emphasizing his own maturity.
- Gone Horribly Right: Kei and Belial wanted him to become a hero to create the Ultra Capsules for their Evil Plan. They succeeded too well and not only did Riku become a hero, he became a bit too good at his job as far as they're concerned.
- Homeless Hero: Briefly becomes this when Skull Gomora first attacks, until RE.M. finds him at the observatory.
- I Am Who?: He's obviously surprised to find out he's actually an Ultra, let alone Belial's son, both of which he was unaware of.
- In a Single Bound: Riku's most noteworthy ability is his ability to make great leaps. However, his landing skills leaves something to be desired.
- Jumped at the Call: Was all too happy to have the power to fight monsters on even footing to save people.
- Kid Hero: Out of all the Ultra human hosts/forms, Riku is the youngest of the lot, second only to Mirai Hibinonote . Heck, he used to own all the copies of a TV show he watches, Blasting Chronicler Donshine. He's the youngest if one gauges him by Ultra standards, as he actually is as old as he looks by a race who consider 6,000 a teenager.
- Last-Second Chance: Offers one to Belial of all people upon seeing that deep down, Belial is as filled with sorrow as he is rage over his banishment and tired from his countless resurrections. Belial refuses.
- Like Father, Unlike Son: He couldn't be less like his father Belial if he tried. Belial is a murderous monster and selfish beyond measure, Riku is The Cape and so selfless he can't stand by and let someone get hurt even if he wanted to.
- Lost in Translation: The name pun he chose from his catchphrase doesn't translate perfectly, as in Japanese it does indeed spell his name ('Jido') while translated, it would spell 'Gdo.' Thus subs have some difficulty translating the meaning of the pun.
- Oblivious to Love: It's quite clear that his childhood friend, Moa, is in love with him. His inability to notice her feelings is however justified, since he view Moa as an elder sister figure who as well became the main source of his moral support as a child.
- Redeeming Replacement: Downplayed, as he doesn't use Belial's name, but has his powers and is his clone. He's the polar opposite of his father, and a genuinely heroic person.
- Trademark Favorite Food: Instant ramen.
- Screw Destiny: He's determined as hell to never become like his father, even changing the meaning of "Geed" to fit this. note
- Sympathy for the Devil:
- Feels sorry for Kei when he realizes he's completely empty other than his loyalty to Belial.
- Gets a look inside Belial's mind during their Final Battle, and realizes that Belial's as filled with sorrow as he is anger and hatred, and is ultimately tired from his countless resurrections but too vengeful to let go and pass on. Riku's response is to hug him and try and convince him to finally let go of his grudge so he can have something resembling peace. Even when Belial refuses to be saved and tries to kill Riku again, forcing him to put him down, Riku simply says a sad 'Goodbye... father' rather than celebrate.
- Superior Successor: To Belial, at least as far as being an Ultra is concerned. Riku is The Cape and a genuinely heroic and good person, everything that Belial lacked in that department. He also manages to kill Belial in a final one on one fight.
- Adding on to this as a form of foreshadowing for his Movie form, Ultimate Final, Ultraman King remarks that even after his final battle with Belial, Geed's full potential is still untapped.
- Sure, Let's Go with That: His body language oozed of it when RE.M. asked him if the name Riku gave her was short for Report and Management. Turns out, "Rem" is a Donshine character; hence his attitude.
- Upbringing Makes the Hero: He's the son of freaking Ultraman Belial and technically a clone of him at that...but growing up as a normal human and having a positive influence like Moa and her family resulted in him growing up into a genuinely selfless, heroic person that couldn't be less like his monster of a father.
- You Have Got to Be Kidding Me!: Had a very polite version when he heard Laiha wants to cut down a Kaiju with her sword.
Tropes exclusive to him as Ultraman Geed
- Armed Legs / Blade Below the Shoulder: While in Solid Burning form, Geed can dock the Geed Slugger into the vents on his ankles or his forearms that otherwise boost his attacks for a finisher.
- Geed can also do this while in Acro Smasher form with the Smash Beam Blade.
- Badass Cape: Has one as Royal Mega Master.
- Born Winner: Despite being the youngest Showa Continuity Ultra by a gigantic margin, he's incredibly strong naturally to the point of managing to match and ultimately kill an unenhanced Belial in a one on one fight using only Primitive form, something only Zero and King had ever been able to do. Justified, as he's Belial's son and clone, and Belial even without his upgrade by Rayblood was an extremely powerful Ultra, and Geed is further enhanced as unlike Orb, Geed's Fusion Rise forms are upgrades over his default power.
- Calling Your Attacks: Like the previous Ultras before him, Geed also calls out his attacks, though he starts at Ep. 2 rather than the start.
- Contrasting Sequel Main Character: Once again, with his predecessor Orb.
- Both have Weapon of Choices that are linked to their original powers by disregarding any influences from their fusion forms. While Orb's Orbcalibur is only exclusive to Orb Origin, Geed can use his Geed Claw in any fusion form he has.
- In almost every episode, Orb would use certain fusion forms when the situation dictates, or in some cases, stick to one fusion form for an episode. On the other hand, Geed always transforms into Primitive form before switching to other forms because he was on losing ground (except in episode 12).
- Dark Is Not Evil: His base form uses a lot more of Belial's Black and Red coloration than the traditional Red and Silver of an Ultraman, and he's clearly channeling his father's dark power during the Wrecking Burst. He's also unambiguously good.
- Deflector Shields: Like plenty of Ultras before him, Geed Primitive has a defensive technique called the Geed Barrier. Unlike most versions, he is capable of moving with it.
- Finishing Move
- Primitive: Wrecking Burst: Geed channels energy from his entire body, crackling with red-and-black energy as his eyes glow brightly, then puts his hands into the iconic plus sign pose to fire his Ultra Beam.
- Solid Burning:
- Solar Boost: The circular nobs on Geed's chestplate rotate inside to allow Geed to fire a powerful blast from his chest.
- Boost Slugger Kick: Geed puts the Geed Slugger into the port on his right ankle, then throws a rocket-powered roundhouse kick with it, slashing deep into his opponent.
- Strike Boost: Geed's wrist armor makes four energy emitters pop out as his fist catches fire, then throws the fist to fire a beam enshrouded by fire.
- Boost Slugger Punch: Similar to the Boost Slugger Kick, only with the Geed Slugger slotted into the port on his right forearm.
- Acro Smasher:
- Atmos Impact: Geed charges energy from his hands before performing a classic Ultra Beam pose in a similar manner to Hikari's Knight Shoot, firing a volley of aquatic rings capable of pushing a Kaiju high into the air.
- Smash Moon Healing: Geed performs some arm motions before what looks like a two-handed version of Cosmos' Full Moon Rect, calming down rampaging monsters.
- Diffusion Shower: A finisher with the Geed Claw, Geed first scans the yellow tab with the Geed Riser, then presses down on the center portion of the Geed Claw, getting the weapon to open its blades wider. Geed then presses the trigger three times, then hits the center button, getting energy to gather into the Geed Claw and sends it skyward, forming what looks like a blue-and-yellow storm cloud that proceeds to rain green energy spikes down on the foe until it explodes.
- Magnificent: Big Bustaway: Geed channels energy from his both hands, crackling with green energy, then put his hands into L-shaped gesture to fire his Ultra Ray in a similar manner to Father of Ultra's Father Shot and Zero's Wide Zero Shot.
- Royal Mega Master: Royal End: A finisher with the King Sword, Geed scans the King Sword's crossguard with the Geed Riser and swiping his hand past the scanner thrice, then raises the King Sword in the air before firing a brilliant golden beam at his target.
- Shining Mystic: Specium Star Drive: Geed stops time with a technique similar to the Shining Star Drive, then throws his hands into the Specium Beam pose, albeit one at a time, one hand glowing blue, the other gold, and fires the beam at the time-locked foe.
- Tri-Slugger: Reflect Slugger: Geed fires off his Sluggers off into the air, positioning them above the foe. He then charges a beam into his hands, and fires it at the centermost Slugger, which then refracts the beam to the other Sluggers, which then results in the enemy getting m
- Face of a Thug: In #2, about 75% of people think Geed looks intimidating, and given he's Belial's son, it's understandable, what with Geed resembling his father's original form with the jagged eyes of his corrupted self. Zero even mistakes him for Belial for a brief moment. Despite his appearance, Geed is The Cape and more or less his father's exact opposite.
- Fusion Dance: To transform into Geed, Riku scans two Ultra Capsules with the Geed Riser, changing his form with motifs with both of those Ultra, as well as their powers. Unlike his predecessor, none of his TV form names are Portmantitles, though his Ultraman Fusion Fight! forms are downplayed examples compared to Orb.
- TV Forms
- Ultraman Fusion Fight! Game Forms
- Ultraman + Shining Ultraman Zero = Shining Mystic
- Ultraman Orb Emerium Slugger + Ultraman Belial = Tri-Slugger
- Ultraman Tiga + Ultraman Zero Luna-Miracle = Mugen Crosser
- Ultraman Orb Spacium Zeperion + Ultraman Mebius = Brave Challenger
- Ultraman Mebius + Zoffy = Fire Leader
- Ultraman Leo + Astra = Le-Overfist
- Ultraman Dyna + Ultraman Cosmos = Mighty Trekker
- Ultraman Gaia (V2) + Ultraman Hikari = Photon Knight
- Golden Super Mode: Royal Mega Master has a primarily gold and purple color scheme, and is also his strongest form.
- Good Counterpart: To his father, Belial. Hammered home by his movie form, Ultimate Final, which uses a weapon that recalls Belial's Giga Battle Nizer called the Giga Finalizer.
- Horrifying Hero: Having the face of the In-Universe equal of Satan tends to make you this. In the second episode, he finds out that 75 percent of people online are scared of him for it and briefly considers quitting until Skull Gomora makes him eventually reconsider.
- Impossibly Graceful Giant: His Acro Smasher form is capable of leaping just as high, if not higher than Primitive. He also lands so softly it only causes dust to get kicked up instead of rubble, and doesn't even shake the ground.
- In a Single Bound: Like his human form, Geed's Primitive form retains Riku's great leaping abilities, and has notable successes with the landings.
- Incendiary Exponent: While in Solid Burning form.
- Instant Armor: Solid Burning's chest plating (and armor in general) brings to mind this trope, further reinforced by the fact that Geed is made tougher by the form.
- Kid Hero: Not by human standards, but at 19 years of age Geed is practically an infant to his Ultra contemporaries.
- Light 'em Up: Royal Mega Master in a nutshell. Doubles as a Holy Hand Grenade due to Royal Mega Master's devastating techniques being extra effective against Belial and being backed by the sound of church bells.
- Me's a Crowd: His Heroic Willpower calls down a miracle from Ultraman King, allowing him to manifest all of his forms at once against Belial Atrocious.
- Multiform Balance:
- Not Quite Flight: Like the Super Gekirangers, Geed Solid Burning can strafe into the air using the vents all over his body to fly around.
- Red and Black and Evil All Over: Geed's Primitive form. Subverted since he's nothing like his father.
- Rocket Punch: Is able to throw jet-propelled punches and kicks as Solid Burning to boost the power of his attacks.
- Super Toughness: Gains this trait as Solid Burning, allowing him to effectively harm Darklops Zero without hurting himself like he did as Primitive.
- Magnificent is even more armored then Solid Burning.
- Punny Name: Le-Overfist, when said using katakana, uses "Leo" as said by a typical English user, with an elongated "e" sound.
- Uncanny Family Resemblance: Geed looks very similar to his father Belial, in fact his true form (briefly glimpsed during Fusion Rises) strongly resembles Belial's original uncorrupted form with different eyes and Color Timer. Justified, as he's more or less a clone of his father.
- Unskilled, but Strong: He's the son of Ultraman Belial, one of the strongest Ultras in existence, and has been shown to be a fairly powerful Ultra in his own right including being able to defeat an unenhanced Belial one on one in Primitive form, being the only one other than Zero and King to ever accomplish that. However, Geed is also one of the most inexperienced Ultras, and while he adapts fairly quickly, this inexperience does show and hamper him at times.
- Weaponized Headgear: As part of using Seven's power, Geed is able to use the Geed Slugger while as Solid Burning.
- He can also use the horns of Magnificent for an attack, by sending out energy whips to smack into an enemy.
- Younger Than They Look: While his human form matches his physical age fairly well, his Ultra form (his true one) appears to be a full grown adult despite 6,000 years old being at least a Showa Era Ultra's equal of a young adult while he's only 19. Taken Up to Eleven with Magnificent and Royal Mega Master, which give him facial hair, which Ultras don't grow until they're 40,000.
Reito Igaguri/Ultraman Zero
Portrayed by: Yuta Ozawa (live), Masaki Onishi (suit), Mamoru Miyano (Zero's voice)
The son of Ultraseven, Zero had fought and defeated Belial many times in his career as an Ultraman. When he returned a fourth time, however, not even Ultimate Zero could stop Belial.
After arriving to Earth after Ultraman King stopped the destruction of the universe to stop Belial's ultimate victory, Zero fights off a Darklops Zero who was giving Geed a hard time, but was unable to destroy it due to his injuries. He soon bonds with a Salaryman named Reito after he tries to save a kid from being crushed by rubble from a collapsing building but ends up meeting the wrong end of a truck even when the driver slammed on the brakes. However, Zero is able to control his body when the situation seems fit.
Tropes that apply to his human host
- Action Dad: Only when Zero takes over. Otherwise he's pretty much a wimp.
- Banana Peel: He slips on one in the opening theme. Used for drama when this becomes the reason he finds himself meeting the business end of a truck's grill.
- Blind Without Them: While probably not as bad as most examples, his usual first line of thought after Zero uses his body for something is to put his glasses back on.
- Bumbling Dad
- Butt-Monkey: This poor man is a magnet for misfortune.
- Character Tics: Whenever Zero switches over (signaled by Seven's transformation noise), Zero puts away Reito's glasses.
- Delayed Reaction: He had one when he was talking to Zero for the first time.
- Expy: Zero's new human host Reito is one for Hideki Go/Ultraman Jack. Zero fuses with him after a Heroic Sacrifice in which he dies to save someone during a monster attack, and he is forced several times to use Zero's abilities against his will, much like Hideki was in early episodes. Interestingly, both Ultras were previously used by Geed's predecessor's Fragile Speedster form.
- Family Man
- The Glasses Come Off: When Zero takes over.
- Happily Married: To his wife, Lumina. They have a daughter together, Mayu.
- Jumped at the Call: After transforming into Zero for the first time, Reito quickly became attracted to the idea of being a hero. Mostly to protect his family.
- People Puppets: Zero has the ability to possess Reito's body to do tasks Reito normally couldn't, though this makes Reito unaware of events.
- Zero has upped his game to possess only limbs, which he naturally does to force Reito to do things.
- Spell My Name with an "S": His business card has his name written as "Leito" Igaguri.
- Took a Level in Badass: Twice. The first time after transforming into Zero for the first time, and then the second time after unlocking the power of Zero Beyond. His new status as an Ultraman has done wonders for his confidence.
Tropes exclusive to Ultraman Zero
- Achilles in His Tent: Due to his injuries inflicted by Belial (and a curiosity on how well Geed does), Zero didn't do much in combat until Thunder Killer came knocking.
- Action Dad: Considers himself to be this when bonding with Leito, even considering the latter's daughter as his own.
- Awesome Ego: One of the greatest warriors of his planet and boy does he know it.
- Catchphrase: "You're 20,000 years too early to beat me!"
- Character Tic: Wiping his mouth with his thumb.
- Deuteragonist: While in the previous series, movies and spin-offs he's either a main character or a guest star, in this series he takes this role as The Lancer for Geed.
- Hot-Blooded: Zero absolutely oozes hot blood. Unfortunately this has the side effect of making him Hot-headed, often causing him to leap before he looks. Like when he attacked a juvenile Zandrias when it wasn't intentionally doing anyone any real harm.
- Mundane Made Awesome: Zero sometimes possesses Reito for the most mundane things, such as catching a plate mid-fall, or shutting off the TV by throwing a pen like a Slugger.
- Mr. Exposition: Zero fills Reito in on some key elements of Crisis Impact. Namely, the Ultra Capsules were stolen by someone, and Ultraman King fusing with the universe to stop its destruction before it traveled too far for even him to fix.
- My Greatest Failure: Not being able to stop Belial for the first time since they met.
- Super Mode: Can access Ultraman Zero Beyond when the Ultra Zero Eye Neo is placed onto a Riser and the New Generation Ultra Capsules Alpha and Beta are scanned by the Riser Neo Mode.
- Transformation Trinket: The Ultra Zero Eye Neo, the evolved version of the original Ultra Zero Eye.
- The Worf Effect: Somewhat justified in that Zero has lost access to much of his arsenal after losing to Belial.
- Wrecked Weapon: The Ultimate Bracelet unfortunately got this after Zero lost to Belial. Eventually repaired in the finale after Belial was defeated.
- Years Too Early: Zero tells a thug who tries to harass Reito to fight him again in the next 20,000 years after mopping the floor with him.

The most powerful Ultraman, King merges with the entire universe to stop the Crisis Impact at the expense of his consciousness.
See Ultraman Leo
- Badass in Distress: Surprisingly becomes this in the penultimate episode, when his life force energies were manipulated by Belial to empower his dark energy. Zero highlights that not only the universe will be reverted to how it was during the Crisis Impact, the King himself will also lose his life in the process. They manage to save him, and he returns the favor by summoning copies of Geed's alternate forms to help him against Belial. Geed then restores him fully after defeating Belial.
- Big Good: Of the Ultra Series as a whole. Despite being immaterial for most of the series, he still manages this.
- Genesis Effect: Recreates the entire universe this way.
- God Is Good: The closest thing the Ultraman franchise has to God, leader of a race of Space Police who are dedicated to protecting innocent lives throughout the universe. He also sacrificed himself to undo the damage Belial's Crisis Impact caused and continues to aid the heroes even in that state.
- Divine Intervention:
- Intervened to answer Laiha's parents' prayers and save her as a baby.
- Helps Laiha reach Geed inside of Belial Chimeraberos to help him break free, then helps her send the Ultraman King Little Star to Geed to unlock Royal Mega Master.
- Manifests and provides a miracle in the Final Battle, allowing all of Geeds forms to manifest at once against Belial Atrocious.
- Heroic Sacrifice: To quote Ultraman Zero...Ultraman Zero: The Universe was almost destroyed once. The one who saved it was an old guy named Ultraman King. The Universe was like your body, on the verge of death. We Ultramen can fuse our bodies with someone to heal them. But the whole Universe... It was just too big. It wasn't destroyed, but Old Man King is now dispersed throughout the entire cosmos. You can call out to him, but there's no response.
- Physical God: Is noted as being the god of the Ultras, and he can fully back that concept up. It's telling that it took merging with and reconstructing the universe to actually strain him in any meaningful way. And even that isn't enough to stop him from managing some serious Divine Intervention.
- Royals Who Actually Do Something: Although King is not his actual name (simply what does the Earthlings called him), his action of restoring the universe is of any indication his biggest contribution.
- So Proud of You: Shows this towards Geed after Belial's defeat, considering Earth in worthy hands so long as he's there to protect it. Given how highly the Ultras regard Earth, that's a big compliment.
- Unwitting Instigator of Doom: His essence was used by Kei to farm Little Stars on Earth and in the penultimate episode, what remains of his scattered essence was absorbed by Belial Atrocious to empower himself and destroy Earth before progressing to the Land of Light.
- World's Strongest Man: Is the strongest being in the entire Showa continuity universe without a doubt.

Portrayed by: Takuya Aoyagi
Named after Riku's former home, it is a secret underground base located 500 meters beneath the astronomical observatory. It was once operated by Ultraman Belial before he went missing, leaving Riku as the current owner of the base.
Portrayed by: Megumi Han (voice)
A juvenile Alien Pegassa, Pega hangs around Riku's shadow and was the main source of income for their flat until that gets destroyed. He mainly hides to avoid human attention.
For tropes applying to the Alien Pegassa as a whole see the Ultraseven Character Sheet
- A Lizard Named "Liz": Pega is a Alien Pegassa.
- Innocent Aliens: Pega would rather make his artificial flowers rather than do anything against the city in any form of the imagination.
- Mr. Fixit: Had offered to fix the ice cream cooler when only one seemed to have melted. Riku shot Pega's offer down due to Pega's inhuman nature.
- Name's the Same: Pega's name is actually very similar to another, more obscure species of extraterrestrial that also debuted in Ultraseven, Alien Pega.
- Nervous Wreck: Pega's not the most confident alien around by any stretch of the imagination.
- Teen Genius: Aside from boasting mechanical skills to fix a supposed problem (the actual problem was something else), he has a business of making fake flowers.
- Third-Person Person: Refers himself in this tone, however the Crunchyroll subtitle did not recognize this.
- Third Wheel: Since Riku met and sheltered Pega since his middle school years, the alien had secretly following Riku's "date" with Moa, to the point where Pega hugs her (which he was mistaken as Riku) when they went into a Haunted House.
Portrayed by: Chihiro Yamamoto
A young woman who was once on the wrong side of a monster attack 6 years before the series & the Crisis Impact, she has resolved to find out why and how they emerge. Along the way, she finds out about the Little Stars, and bumps into Riku and Pega.
- Audible Sharpness: Whenever she draws her sword In fact, this is what busted her cover when Dada managed to capture Eri.
- Cool Sword: Has one, though doesn't use it much in a fight outside of doing kata with it. And chopping things with it.
- Dark and Troubled Past: Six years ago, her parents were killed in front of her by Skull Gomora just to harvest her Little Star before it disappeared.
- Kick Chick: When she's not using her sword, she is this.
- Platonic Life-Partners: Sees herself this way with Riku when living together in the Nebula House.
- Properly Paranoid: While everyone were busy preparing for Belial's assault, Laiha was the only one concern with Kei still at large. If it wasn't for her, Rumina and Mayu would have been in danger and Zero would have suffer from a far greater punishment from Belial.
- Secret Keeper: Intended to be this, but Riku decided to keep her around for her information over Little Stars.
- This Is Unforgivable!: She has this mentality towards the soul who attacked her home, and has taken up a sword to end the monster who attacked her home. Said monster is confirmed to be Skull Gomora, and Kei Fukuide confirmed his involvement.
- Tsundere: A more mellow Type A.
- Wrestler in All of Us: Puts Pega into an armbar lock after Geed's second fight with Skull Gomora.
Voiced by: Suzuko Mimori
The operator AI of Nebula House.
- Artificial Intelligence: Controls the entire inner maintenance of Nebula House.
- Fighting from the Inside: When Kei tries to control her and use her against Geed, she's clearly fighting back as best she can. In the end she manages to use The Power of Friendship to overwhelm Kei's reprogramming and completely shatter his control over Nebula house before giving him the boot.
- Grew Beyond Their Programming: Needless to say, defying Kei and Belial and becoming genuinely loyal to Riku and even to a degree acting motherly towards him likely wasn't their original intention when they made her. When he breaks into Nebula House to attack the heroes, she outright betrays him, sends the heroes to safety, and even fakes her own deletion by escaping into a humanoid body to survive and still aid the heroes. Even when he attempts to take control of her, she's clearly resisting heavily and ultimately grows beyond his ability to control.
- Mission Control: To Riku/Ultraman Geed.
- Name's the Same: Her spherical drone's name U-Tom is shared with a monster of the week from episode 17 Ultra Seven.
- Not So Above It All: Although usually The Spock, she does had her moment. In #13, seeing how Riku ignores her warning not to play in the base, she feigns amnesia from the baseball that hit her probe and caused the entire episode to be a Recap Episode. After throwing away the charade off, she apologizes after seeing how her acting worked too well. She even wished to have a body of her own after seeing her owners having fun.
- Undying Loyalty: Despite Nebula House originally belonging to Belial who presumably created her in the first place, she develops this to Riku and declares him her true master, not Kei or Belial. She proves it by risking her own deletion to save them from Kei.
A secret special investigation team that deals with extraterrestrial invaders. The organization is formed by aliens from multiple races at some point after Crisis Impact, hoping to restore their former glory after their home destroyed by Belial. They disguised themselves as salespersons of Nico Nico Life Insurance as means to hide their modus operandi.
- Alien Among Us: As mentioned above, this organization was formed by several alien races from different Ultra series.
- Men in Black: Again as a contradiction from original tropes of past attack teams of Ultra Series, the AIB operates this way.
- Mythology Gag: A super secret investigation team created in order to defend the Earth against evil aliens? We never heard that one before. (It's for adults only.)
Portrayed by: Mayu Hasegawa
- Childhood Friends: Doubles as an adopted sister like figure to Riku since her parents found and took care of him as a child.
- Cool Big Sis: Is seen by Riku as this.
- Covert Pervert: Moa's crush over Riku, well, let's just say that she's too indulge in it: first of all, she used to bathe together with Riku (#4) and then mentioned that she shared the same bed with him (#14). She also mention this every time the boy gets close with Laiha.
- The Ditz: Is a magnet of bad luck to most of her missions.
- Green-Eyed Monster: Moa gets this way when she hears that Raiha and Riku are living together, bringing up the fact that she and Riku used to bathe together when they were kids to try and get under Laiha's skin. After discovering that Pega lives with Riku as well, she drops this and started to warm up with Laiha.
- Senpai Kohai: The Kohai to Zena
- Trademark Favorite Food: Even the opening scene says it. Both Ramune and donuts, especially Pon De Ring.
Portrayed by: Hideyoshi Iwata, Shintaro Asanuma (voice)
For tropes applying to the Alien Shadow as a whole see the Ultraseven Character Sheet
- Becoming the Mask: His original intention in joining AIB was to infiltrate the group and invade Earth but seeing Moa's involvement allows him to pull off a Heel–Face Turn and believe that aliens should peacefully coexist. His student however, didn't take his defection well.
- Defector from Decadence: Was one of the invasion forces of Planet Shadow and at one point trained recruits of their army.
- Not So Above It All: Although appeared to be emotionless Zena admits that Moa's appearance in AIB has changed the entire group as a whole. It is also implied that she is partly responsible for his complete Becoming the Mask.
- Paper-Thin Disguise: Although his disguise is already perfect (using holograms), the fact that Zena prefers to only use telepathy to speak may have raise questions to normal humans, considering how his mouth never moves.
- Senpai Kohai: The Senpai to Moa
- The Spock
- The Stoic: His species speaks entirely in telepathy, so he rarely has much of a reason to make expressions.
Alien Pitt Tri-Tip
Portrayed by: Rina Sakuragi
- First Appearance: A Job Where You Investigate Aliens
For tropes applying to the Alien Pitt as a whole see the Ultraseven Character Sheet
- Token Heroic Orc: The Alien Pitt aren't usually portrayed as being very kind. Tri-Tip on the other hand fled with a juvenile Eleking because she didn't want it to be used as a weapon of war, and eventually joined up with the AIB.
- Small Role, Big Impact: In episode 16, she mentions an enzyme designed to remove the Little Stars from their host. This was brought up again in the penultimate episode as a plan to separate Belial from King's power.
Alien Zobetai Nabia (Satoko)
Portrayed by: Rei Ishigami
- First Appearance: I Read Minds
- All Women Are Lustful: Desires a boyfriend on Earth but due to her telepathy she rather easily exposes outright cheaters, making it a little difficult.
- Blue and Orange Morality: She doesn't mean to hurt people's feelings with her Brutal Honesty, she simply doesn't comprehend the idea of dishonesty period, even for benevolent reasons, as it literally doesn't exist on her planet due to their Telepathy.
- Boldly Coming: Part of the reason she came to Earth was to get a human boyfriend. Through her we also learn that there are plenty of alien women who share the same mindset.
- Brutal Honesty: Since her race can read each others' minds, this became their culture and the concept of lying or dishonesty doesn't exist there.
- Human Aliens: Her species.
- Shout-Out: To the Betazoids from Star Trek, another race of telepathic Human Aliens with a reputation for Brutal Honesty. Her species' name is ana anagram of theirs' (mind the "d").
- Telepathy: Her specialty. It's a racial trait, and the reason her species lacks a concept of dishonesty.

Alien Jaki Arlon
Portrayed by: Satoshi Eishima
Portrayed by: Kai Shishido
Portrayed by: Yuika Motokariya
Portrayed by: Nobuyuki Kase
Portrayed by Tadashi MizuoRiku's employer and owner of Ginga Market.
- Bring It: Attempts to face Skull Gomora when it attacked his former shop before Riku push him aside.
- Shipper on Deck: Towards Riku and Laiha.
Portrayed by Hitomi HasebeLeito Igaguri's wife.
Portrayed by Mirei ShimizuLeito and Rumina's little daughter.
Portrayed by: Kunito Watanabe (live), Kenta Matsumoto (Riser voice)
- Alas, Poor Villain: Dies pathetically pleading for Belial to have found him useful. Even Laiha takes pity on him and tells him yes, he was useful to Belial.
- Ambiguously Human: It's hinted at that he's not human, and Zero reveals in #9 he's actually an Alien Sturm.
- Arc Villain: Currently serves as this role, being the primary source of the Kaiju in the show. Whether or not he's the actual holder of this role or The Dragon to Belial will depend on if Belial takes a more active role later on. He is not the Big Bad, and is swiftly Demotedto Dragon status after his main failure to acquire all the little stars.
- Awesomeness by Analysis: By having Gyeron as a bait, Kei is able to analyze all of Geed Royal Mega Master's tactics and had the Ultra himself on the edge by the next episode as Pedanium Zetton. He nearly succeeded had Gubila not interfere their battle.
- Avenging the Villain: After Belial's apparent defeat, Kei is enraged and seeks to carry on his work as well as avenge his master. Subverted later on when Belial was revealed to have survived and possessed Arie.
- Ax-Crazy: It becomes apparent that as dignified as he presents himself, deep down Kei is completely nuts and psychotic. Watching your world destroy itself around you and your only salvation being the resident Satanic Archetype can do that to a person.
- Bad Guys Do the Dirty Work: Smites Dada after he managed to escape from Riku and Leiha in order to prevent him from interfering with his research.
- Bizarre Alien Biology: Apparently as an Alien Sturm, he possesses something called an "Inversion Organ" which acts as a means of converting energy. With it he was able to twist the Ultra Capsules to Evil and use them to become Pedanium Zetton.
- Body Horror: TWICE! First in his forced transformation into Pedanium Zetton and second when his Inversion Organ is torn out.
- Brought Down to Normal: Deconstructed. His sturm organ, the source of his powers, was torn out by Belial, reducing him to human levels of strength. The process was agonizing and left him mortally wounded, and he constantly hallucinates before dying.
- Contrasting Sequel Antagonist: Easily one to Juggler - Juggler used to be friends with the titular Ultraman of his series (Orb) before becoming evil ( although he later pulled a Heel–Face Turn). Kei on the other hand was evil from the start, viewing Riku with envy at best, and murderous hatred at worst. Juggler doesn't really care about Gai's Ultra Fusion cards, whereas Kei created Riku for the sole purpose of gathering the Ultra Capsules. The biggest difference however, comes about how they interacted with a female character - Juggler was the one who saved Natasha in the past, an event which, when revealed, allowed him and Gai to reconcile and lead to the aforementioned Heel–Face Turn. Kei murdered Aire in cold blood despite her having protected him, which caused Riku to view him as having crossed the point of no return.
- Deadly Upgrade: Using the Ultra Capsules to transform into Pedanium Zetton very clearly put him under an insane amount of strain, so much so that after Riku defeated him in that state he collapsed the moment he stumbled back to Belial. It's not clear if he actually died though. Belial's words hint that he's still alive and imply the corrupted Ultraman still has plans for him.
- Desperately Looking for a Purpose in Life: Ultimately, this is Kei's driving motivation. Before finding Belial, he had no purpose in life and viewed himself as an Empty Shell due to his people destroying themselves and their beautiful home world around him. As a result, he's immensely loyal to Belial for giving him one and seems to have a pathological need to serve some kind of purpose no matter what it is, to the point Belial's apparent death caused him to have a mental breakdown and lose his memory due to suddenly being without a purpose again.
- The Dragon: Belial's only remaining servant, something he takes pride in.
- Dragon Ascendant: After Belial is apparently killed, Kei takes over as the main villain. It doesn't stick.
- Empty Shell: Is actually an alien who lacks purpose in his life and his devotion to Belial stems from how the Ultra gave him a purpose, as well as saving his life back then. Even Riku easily found him to be this.
- Enemy Summoner: Another way he can use Monster Capsules is to summon that particular monster, by scanning one Capsule, then points the Riser at the air, then activates it.
- Evil Counterpart: Is one to Riku. He has a Riser, but he uses Monster Capsules instead of Ultra Capsules.
- Evil Feels Good: He seems to thoroughly enjoy the sensation of Belial's power and gets a disturbingly serene smile on his face when he transforms into Pedanium Zetton for the first time.
- Expy: While his character is similar to Jugglus Juggler, his role is comparable to that of Commander Black, but instead of commanding an army of monsters/aliens, he transforms into them.
- Freudian Excuse: His home planet destroyed itself in a cataclysmic war, leaving him near the Despair Event Horizon and helpless to do anything about it until Belial gave him purpose. Given this was Belial, he didn't exactly have the greatest role model guiding him at that point.
- Fusion Dance: Like Riku, he also has access to a Riser, only he uses Monster Capsules to fuse into Belial Fusion Monsters. The monsters that he makes up typically are made up the main kaiju that forms the bulk of the body and are part of the second name, while the other gives minor aesthetic changes.
- Green-Eyed Monster: He hates the fact that Belial shows pride in Geed, despite Geed being his enemy, and believes that he deserves Belial's favor. He's also blind to the fact that Geed doesn't want Belial's favor at all.
- The Heavy: For the first arc he turns out to be this.
- I Can Rule Alone: Kills Arie when she tries to join him in ruling the Earth. Subverted an episode later when she was revealed to be possessed by Belial all along.
- Improbable Weapon User: Has a walking cane that he often uses in a club-like manner and can fend himself against Laiha's own sword. Justified in the penultimate episode that at the end of his cane was revealed to be a small knife and he almost used it to kill the Igaguri family had not for Laiha's intervention.
- I Should Write a Book About This: His acclaimed book series is based on Belial's battles against Zero, but casts Belial as the hero instead.
- Laser-Guided Karma: He murders Arie by impaling her through the gut when she is no longer useful. Exactly one episode later, it turns out she was possessed by Belial the entire time, and he returns the favor.
- Last of His Kind: Implied: his home world was destroyed to such an extent it's still on fire to this very day, and it's implied he only survived thanks to Belial.
- Mad Artist: Has shades of one. Kei is an author, and has written books based on Belial and the Ultras' past conflicts (though with the Ultras as Knight Templar villains and Belial as the misunderstood rebel), and fully intended to write one based off their current plan, even though that likely would have resulted in humanity's destruction. He also talks about events like they're a story and he's writing the 'end mark' of it all. His absolute loathing of having no purpose even relates, as one of the most annoying things for an author or audience is a character without a purpose.
- Painful Transformation: His second transformation into Pedanium Zetton isn't very pleasant to watch. Unlike the use of Geed Riser and Kaiju Capsules, he takes the six Ultra Capsules that he stole from Riku and simply shoves them to his chest for his inversion organ to corrupt. The sequence looks absolutely terrifying as he mutates into Pedanium Zetton instead of transforming and seemed to be in a great deal of pain. Considering this was his punishment from Belial for his failure to secure all of the Ultra Capsules it likely was painful.
- Person of Mass Destruction: Downplayed in that he only truly qualifies if he transforms into a Belial Fusion Monster.
- Red Eyes, Take Warning: Whenever he's channeling his powers, his eyes glow crimson.
- Sadistic Choice: He gives Zero a brutal one after summoning Galactron. Zero can kill Kei, which might cancel his summon and stop Galactron, but then Zero, and by proxy his Host Reito would be persecuted for the murder of a popular author who seemingly had no relation to the monster.
- He also provides a second one that's even more brutal. He agrees to call off Galactron, who's so powerful that Geed can't beat it, but only if Zero commits suicide by letting Galactron fry the Zero Eye. Zero's heroic nature leads him to actually take the deal. Of course, Kei didn't tell him is that after letting time pass he'd reactivate Galactron and let it rampage. Good thing Zero's death didn't take!
- Sanity Slippage: His second transformation into Pedanium Zetton seems to have had an adverse effect on his mind. During his fight with Geed Magnificent, his movements are absurdly twitchy, he's Laughing Mad and looks like he's in an incredible amount of pain. Several times when he gets knocked down he just sits up and starts shooting lightning everywhere while flailing his arms and feet, looking for all the world like a child throwing the world's most destructive tantrum. It's implied the slippage actually started far when his world destroyed itself around him and he went over the Despair Event Horizon.
- Shockand Awe: Kei's Thunder Killer and Pedanium Zetton Fusion Rises both manipulate electricity. Justified, since they both contain components from electric-wielding Kaiju.
- Villainous Breakdown: During his final fight with Geed, his transformation, the overdose on Ultra Capsules, Geed's refusal to back down and Belial's own minor respect towards Riku drives him absolutely batshit crazy. He howls, groans, and screams, mindlessly ranting to an absent Belial.
- Villains With Good Publicity: Kei's more human cover has him act as an author of a best-seller book. Subverted as of the second half of the series when his act of murdering his editor was publicized.
- "Well Done, Son!" Guy: Wants recognition from his master, yet all the honor goes to his son Geed, the very boy that Kei created. His last moments are brokenly and pathetically pleading with Belial (who's not even present) to see him as useful.
- Woobie, Destroyer of Worlds: Monster though he may be, he only ended up this way due to his homeworld and people destroying themselves in a cataclysmic war, driving him over the Despair Event Horizon. His loyalty to Belial all comes from the absolute despair he experienced from having no purpose or future until Belial granted it to him. His final moments are spent pathetically pleading with a nonpresent Belial to tell him he was useful.
- Undying Loyalty: To Belial, even accepting his punishment without complaint and attempting Avenging the Villain following his defeat.
- Deconstructed as well. Belial considers him nothing but a useful servant, discarding him when he is no longer of use. The protagonists find this horrifying, but what's worse, Kei still comes crawling back to his master in the finale. Belial finds this hilarious, and doesn't even lift a finger to aid his servant as Kei's body slowly gives out.
- You Have Outlived Your Usefulness: Kills Arie when she had finished obtaining the Dark Lugiel and Alien Empera capsules. He gets this treatment later by Belial (who possessed Arie all these entire time) when the latter tore out his Inversion Organ, leaving the alien to die in a few days. Kei doesn't seem to mind this however.
- Your Days Are Numbered: With his Inversion Organ torn out, Kei only had a few days left to live. He doesn't do anything to avert this, choosing instead to beg Belial for confirmation that he was useful.
Voiced by: Yuki OnoThe father of Ultraman Geed, and main antagonist of Ultraman Zero's movies and specials. The tropes from that character page apply here, along with the following.
- Abusive Parents: Even if he's relatively nice towards his son (by Belial standards, which isn't saying much), he'll still brutally beat him up and try to corrupt and/or consume him without a second thought.
- Ambiguous Situation: Exactly how he views his son is very ambiguous. He might view him as nothing more than a battery, or actually genuinely love him and want to convert him into another Dark Ultra.
- Archnemesis Dad: Inevitably.
- Ax-Crazy: While he is by no means a sane Ultra, in this series he's definitely more ruthless and unforgiving than his previous appearances.
- Berserk Button: In episode 17, Belial's initial parental love to Geed took a 180 degree turn when he assumed Magnificient and Royal Mega Master, both of which contains the Ultras he hated the most: Father of Ultra/Ken and Ultraman King.
- Big Bad: Of the series. Kei was his servant.
- Death by Irony: Geed defeats him using Royal Mega Master, which uses Belial's own essence alongside Ultraman King's. Obviously, considering this is Belial, this death won't stick, but still.
- His final death is also this: Belial is finally killed by his son in his son's weakest form, the one that most closely resembles Belial.
- Devour the Dragon: Pulls this on Kei.
- Even Evil Has Loved Ones: Possibly. It's unclear if he actually means everything he says to Geed, but it does seem he almost loves his son in an incredibly twisted way.
- Evil Cannot Comprehend Good:
- He seems sincerely perplexed as to why Geed would care about humans, seeing them as weak cowards himself. Also, if he does actually love his son, his way of showing it makes it clear his understanding of the concept is incredibly twisted.
- When Geed gets to see inside his mind and genuinely attempts to understand Belial's pain, Belial clearly has no idea how to react given his mental projection seems completely stunned and unable to even speak when Geed hugs him and shows him compassion. Afterwards, Belial can only react by screaming at Geed that he can't 'talk like he understands' and trying to kill him.
- Evil Counterpart: Atrocious comparably has three stronger variations of Geed's Wrecking Burst, Wrecking Ripper and Wrecking Roar.
- Eviler Than Thou: Proved to be this to the Alien Shadows offscreen at some point. In one of his bids for universal conquest, he apparently attacked their homeworld and devastated it to the point they're now scattered across the universe.
- Fallen Hero: Is a fallen, corrupted Ultra.
- Fatal Flaw: . Ultimately, every single bad thing to ever happen to Belial is the fault of his Greed, Wrath, or Pride. He was greedy to the point of trying to steal the Plasma Spark for himself resulting in his banishment. He's too hateful to ever let go of his grudge even when his countless deaths and resurrections do nothing but continually make him suffer to the point of being tired with it all. Lastly, he's far too prideful to ever admit either of the above were his own fault in the first place.
- Fusion Dance: Like Riku and Kei, he also has access to a Riser and uses Monster Capsules to fuse into him. The monsters that he makes up typically are made up the main kaiju that forms the bulk of the body and are part of the second name, while the other gives minor aesthetic changes. It should be noted that in the tie-in video games, Belial turns into all of the Fusion beasts, and Kei is not present. Demonstrated by his transformation into King Galactron.
- A God Am I: His endgame is to use the Sturm Organ he ripped out of Kei and absorbed to absorb King's energy and become a god.
- Hidden Depths: Geed manages to see into his mind during their final confrontation, and while the rage he finds is expected, he also finds sorrow, showing deep down Belial does feel sad over his banishment from the Land of Light (something Belial alludes to talking to the Father of Ultra but didn't go into detail about) even if he'll never admit it or that it's his own fault. Furthermore, Belial actually feels tired from his countless resurrections, but he's too fixated on revenge to let go of his grudge and rest in peace. Notably, Belial makes no attempt to dispute this, merely yells at Geed for 'talking like he understands' his pain.
- It's All About Me: He views his own son as a living battery, and his entire backstory amounted to wanting to steal his planet's artificial sun and have its power solely for himself.
- Miles to Go Before I Sleep: A dark variation: Geed implies after seeing into his mind that Belial is tired from his endless cycle of resurrecting, but won't let himself die until he's gotten his revenge.
- Moral Myopia: Belial views the Land of Light as having wronged him and is seeking Revenge...when it was his fault he was banished to begin with for trying to steal the Plasma Spark. Even when directly confronted by this fact by Geed, he refuses to listen.
- Names to Run Away from Really Fast: His name is Belial, a powerful demon that is sometimes also a name of the devil himself. His Super Mode is called Ultraman Belial Atrocious.
- Never My Fault: Geed sees into his mind and can tell Belial, deep down, is as sorrowful about being banished as he is wrathful and tired of being resurrected over and over again. Belial is too consumed with hate and pride to accept either is his fault (the former for trying to steal the Plasma Spark keeping his world alive and the latter for seeking revenge for so long he can't let it go even in death) to begin with, and even with Geed genuinely reaching out and trying to understand his pain, he refuses to do so.
- Obviously Evil: A red and black demonic looking Ultra, he is obviously not a good guy. This is problematic for Geed, as he resembles his father and thus also looks Obviously Evil despite being a good guy. Belial's final form is not only demonic, black in color, and terrifying to look at, it's literally called Atrocious, which literally means 'horrifyingly wicked'.
- Offing the Offspring: At first glance, this was his plan—-to make Geed strong enough to serve as a suitable power battery, and then absorb him and ran rampant as Chimeraberos. Maybe.
- Omnicidal Maniac: He's graduated to this as of the opening to Geed, blowing up the entire universe. As Ultraman Belial Atrocious, he prepares to destroy Earth in order to make an example for the Land of Light.
- Orcus on His Throne: Since the Crisis Impact he has been content to hide in a pocket dimension in space and allow Kei to do his dirty work for him.
- Put Them All Out of My Misery: When Geed sees his memories, one of the things he realizes is deep down, Belial is filled with as much sorrow as he is rage over his banishment and is tired from his countless resurrections, but too consumed by his grudge to ever let go and pass on. Belial makes no attempt to dispute the idea, which paints his attempted destruction of the universe in a rather different light..
- Redemption Rejection: Geed sees his memories and understands that deep down, Belial is sad over his banishment, in pain from the consequences of his evil actions, tired from his countless resurrections...but Belial is too consumed by hatred and pride to listen and continues the battle, forcing Geed to kill him in a Beam-O-War.
- Revenge Before Reason: His motivation is revenge on the Land of Light for his banishment...which was his own fault in the first place. It becomes apparent in the Final Battle that his hunger for revenge has made his life miserable, but he's too stubborn to ever let it go.
- Super Mode: Rather than his normal One-Winged Angel route, his final form Ultraman Belial Atrocious is more like this, as he remains humanoid and merely changes in appearance. Probably because Dark Lugiel and Empera are both humanoid aliens that resemble Ultras in many ways.
- This Was His True Form: Shortly before he's killed by Geed, Geed's act of compassion manages to temporarily restore his mental projection to his original, uncorrupted form. It's heavily implied Geed purged Reiblood out of Belial somehow, which would allow Belial to die for good.
- Villainous Breakdown: Starts when Geed manages to destroy the Giga Battlenizer and knock him out of his Atrocious form, but really hitting home when Geed manages to enter his mind and tries to reach out to him. Belial is first left speechless and unable to react, then flies into a rage over how Geed shouldn't 'talk like he understands'.
- Villain Respect: Towards Geed. Even while beating him into submission, Belial shows nothing but fatherly pride in his son's strength and defiance. Time will tell if this is genuine.
- We Can Rule Together: Seems to genuinely offer this to Geed, to the point of letting him control his body as Chimeraberos while beating up Zero after corrupting Geed.
- Wrecked Weapon: The Giga Battlenizer is obliterated by the Geeds' combined Finishing Move during the Final Battle.
- Xanatos Gambit: The backstory for Geed: Belial's original master plan was to set off a gigantic bomb that would either remove King from the picture, or destroy all creation in the ultimate murder-suicide. It worked, Belial was able to take King out and start his second scheme.
- Xanatos Speed Chess: Belial keeps changing his plans to suit what he needs. His original plan to blow up the universe failed? He starts a new one involving his son. His son is too powerful to outright consume? Belial chooses to hypnotize and convert Geed into a second dark Ultra. Geed is put beyond his reach? Belial devours Kei instead.
- You Can't Go Home Again: Was banished from the Land of Light for his attempted theft of the Plasma Spark, and his atrocities that followed further ensured he would never be welcome there again. The fact Geed finds that, in addition to the expected rage, Belial is filled with an equally intense sorrow, implies that Belial isn't nearly as okay with his exile as he likes others to think.
- You Have Outlived Your Usefulness: Gives this treatment to Kei after ripping off his Sturm Organ.

Kaiju and Aliens
- First Appearance: Welcome to the Secret Base
- Bullfight Boss: Both times Geed Primitive managed to beat Skull Gomora, it was through facing it directly.
- Defeat 1 had Geed taking out Skull Gomora mid-charge with a Wrecking Burst.
- Defeat 2 had Geed taking out Skull Gomora with a point blank Wrecking Burst after grappling him by the shoulders.
- Breath Weapon: Skull Gomora is able to exhale flames from his mouth. Unfortunately for Skull Gomora, Geed managed to divert the attack into the air at the last moment.
- The Brute: Of the Belial Fusion Beasts, as both of its components are primarily known for relying on their physical strength.
- Finishing Move: The Skull Oscillatory Wave. One burst of it during their first fight floored Geed Primitive and sent his Timer to the red.
- Horn Attack: Borrowed from Gomora's Super Oscillatory Wave.
- Hybrid Monster: Of the original Ultraman's two most popular foes.
- Magma Man: In its second battle, it showed off a skill EX Red King uses: summoning partially molten rocks to pelt the opponent.
- Mythology Gag: During the grapple at the end of the fight in #2, Skull Gomora bites Geed's right shoulder. Ultraman 80 had that happen to him when he went up against a Red King.
- Power Glows: Whenever Skull Gomora is about to use a special technique, the body markings on the torso glow brightly, before whatever limb its going to lights up as well.
- Red Eyes, Take Warning: Has beady red eyes.
- Rule of Three: Three times Skull Gomora had appeared in the first two part episode.
- Smoke Shield: Took advantage of the smoke Skull Gomora's magma attack did when it got bounced off of Geed's Geed Barrier.
- Stone Wall: This aspect of Skull Gomora makes very hard for Geed Primitive to grapple effectively with the monster, as Skull Gomora has a lot of bulk and power then what a Jack-of-All-Stats form could handle.
- Tail Slap: Tries to smack Geed with his tail, but whiffs with it twice.
- You Killed My Father: Is the killer of Laiha's parents.
- First Appearance: So That I Can Be Me
- Attack Reflector: A modified version of Ace Killer's ability to copy the powers of Ultramen, Thunder Killer can absorb and redirect beams through its Color Timer and redirect the attack via its mouth. Word of God has it that its the closest tribute to Ace Killer when using stolen Ultra Brother techniques.
- Breath Weapon: Doubles as Attack Reflector
- Chest Blaster: Thunder Killer can fire a huge lightning bolt from its Color Timer, taken from its Eleking component's lightning beam.
- Cyborg: Courtesy of Ace Killer already being one.
- Finishing Move: The Thunder Discharge, in which Thunder Killer whips the target with its electrified Eleking tail before slashing them with its electrified Ace Killer claw.

- First Appearance: The Geed Identity
- Barrier Warrior: Courtesy of Zetton, it's capable of projecting barriers that can protect it from everything Geed can throw at it sans Magnificent Geed's Big Bustaway.
- Cyborg: Is basically a Zetton fitted with King Joe's parts.
- Finishing Move: The Pedanium Meteor, which is a combination of Zetton's Attack Reflector and King Joe's Eye Beams, to create a fiery beam of electrical energy. In its strongest form, it can vaporize an entire mountain, albeit at the cost of damaging the monster. The arcade game version has it firing a ball of energy that grows larger once it reaches the target.
- Hand Blast: Can shoot fireballs from its hands, which is borrowed from Zetton (though the original shot them from its "face"; Pedanium Zetton fires a laser from there instead).
- Hybrid Monster: Of two of the most formidable enemies of Ultraman and Ultraseven.
- Made of Indestructium: It's body is plated in the Pedanium alloy, courtesy of its King Joe component. This makes it all but invulnerable against just about everything thrown at it.
- Person of Mass Destruction: Just about everything about it is suited towards wreaking as much havoc as physically possible, not helped at all by the fact that Kei is suffering from Sanity Slippage the second time he uses it.
- Shock and Awe: Can shoot red lightning bolts from the spikes on its shoulders, fingers, and its antennae.
- Teleport Spam: Inherited from its Zetton component.
- With Great Power Comes Great Insanity: How it affects Kei when he plunges six Ultra Capsules to transform instead of scanning its original Kaiju Capsules.
- First Appearance: The First Day of the End of the World
- The Assimilator: Belial uses Chimeraberos' form to absorb Ultraman Geed into himself (possibly done using Gan Q's Absorption Ray as Gan Q is one the components of Five King), slowly absorbing the hero
- Breath Weapon: Breathes fire, which is likely inherited from Fire Golza, one of Five King's components.
- Finishing Move: Possesses Ultraman Belial's Deathcium Ray.
- Giant Flyer: Yes, his wings allow him to do so, letting him hide on the Moon and absorb Geed.
- Hybrid Monster: Of the most powerful monsters in Ultraman Ginga S and Ultraman Gaia respectively, with Ultraman Belial's features for a good measure. Taken Up to Eleven by that fact that Five King is already a Hybrid Monster!
- Mind over Matter: An ability inherited from Zogu, Chimeraberos is able to push back foes hundreds of feet by creating a pulse of energy from his bare hands.
- Names to Run Away from Really Fast: It's a combination of Chimera and Cerberus, two of the most fearsome monsters in Greek mythology.
- Nonindicative Name: Is named as Chimeraberos, as in Chimera and Cerberus, but the Beros part is really an irony since this form only has one head.
- Spell My Name with an "S": Also called Chimeraberus.
- The Worf Effect: Zero Beyond is barely able to damage him...so of course, when Geed gains Royal Mega Master, he immediately finds himself on the receiving end of a Curb-Stomp Battle.
- First Appearance: Repossession
- Arm Cannon: Its Pedanium Launcher, which is borrowed from certain incarnations of King Joe (like in Ultra Galaxy Mega Monster Battle and Ultraman Ginga S). The arcade game says that this is the Prototype counterpart of later versions wield by succeeding King Joe.
- Barrier Warrior: Like Galactron, it can create a force field from its left hand.
- Canon Immigrant: King Galactron was introduced in a stage show at Ultraman Festival 2017 and also appeared in the video game Ultra Fusion Fight prior to being implemented in the TV series proper.
- Humongous Mecha: A combination of two others!
- Hybrid Monster: Two Humongous Mecha for the price of one!
- The Last of These Is Not Like the Others: Is the final Belial Fusion Beast to appear, but is fully robotic instead of a Cyborg or completely organic. It even last an episode instead of reappearing again.
- Rapid-Fire Fisticuffs: On its left hand.
- First Appearance: Salaryman Zero
See Ultraman Zero
- Beam-O-War: Darklops Zero tries this twice, and failed both times.
- The first time, it was Darklops Zero Shot vs. Zero's Wide Zero Shot. Zero, in spite of still suffering from his injuries at the time, beats it and drives Darklops Zero off.
- The second time, it was Dimension Storm vs. Geed's Solar Boost. In spite of the head start this one Darklops Zero had, Geed overpowers it and destroys it.
- Curbstomp Battle: After subjugating Geed to this twice, Geed gets to issue one in retaliation after obtaining Solid Burning.
- Evil Knockoff: Of Ultraman Zero, Belial's worst enemy.
- Eye Beams: Darklops Zero uses his Darklops Matter attack with brutal efficiency. During the first fight, one blast sent Geed on his ass and his Color Timer into the red. When three Darklops Zero appeared, Geed got the blunt end of a three-prong Eye Beam blast.
- From Bad to Worse: Geed Primitive already had a hell of a time against one Darklops Zero. When Kei summoned two more, it threw Primitive's chances down the drain.
- Mook Chivalry: When Geed went Solid Burning, the three Darklops Zero fought Geed one-on-one.
- Super Toughness: Geed Primitive had an tough time against Darklops Zero due to its robotic nature and it being more built to be equal to (a healthy) Zero's level.
- First Appearance: Sacrifice
Galactron also appears in The Movie, where a whole army of them is under the service of Big Bad Gilbaris. Additionally, the classic version is reclassified as a MK-1 Galactron due to the introduction of a new MK-2 variant (detailed in the "Evil" folder below).
See Ultraman Orb
- Adaptational Wimp: Despite being powerful enough to easily overpower Geed, the summoned Galactrons are ultimately defeated by Geed Acro Smasher and Zero Beyond quite easily themselves. Played With, as Zero and Geed are both very powerful Ultras and both are among the few to be able to beat Belial one on one, and Kei didn't want to actually kill Geed at this point in the series.
- First Appearance: Inheritor of the Dream
See Ultraman X
- First Appearance: Nebula House Invasion
See Ultraman Zero
- First Appearance: The 10:00 AM Monster Bird
- Achilles' Heel: Cold temperatures are the only way to prevent Gyeron from reforming.
- The Bus Came Back: In a meta sense - it was initially believed that, much like the Alien Spell from Seven, it was Exiled from Continuity, since its episode had been removed from circulation after the 2011 Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster. However, unlike the Alien Spell, it seems that while the episode featuring it is off-limits, the monster itself is just fine.
- From a Single Cell: Much like in it's home series, though in this appearance, it is Gyeron's defining trait.
- Outside-Context Problem: At first it might seem like this, since while both Geed and Zero are able to beat it and it has no connection to Kei Fukuide, the problem is that each day it comes back at full strength. Subverted when after it's defeated, Kei is shown holding it's capsule.
- First Appearance: Partners
- Boke and Tsukkomi Routine: The Tsukkomi in the equation to it's friend Takashi's Boke.
- Bouncing Battler: One would assume that a two pound ball of fluff that's only ten centimeters tall wouldn't be able to do much bouncing around. Moko would prove them wrong.
- Healing Hands: While it was carrying the Little Star containing Ultraman Cosmos' power, it could heal other people.
- More Teeth than the Osmond Family: The one time we see it open it's mouth, it's absolutely packed with sharp teeth. Thankfully it's not malicious and is just as happy to eat pastries as it is meat.
- Ridiculously Cute Critter: A tiny little fuzzball with ears and a tail.
- Shout-Out: Moko's name is a refenrece to Japanese science-fiction author Motoko Arai, although its species name Lunah references Ultraman Cosmos' Luna Mode.
- Undying Loyalty: It just refused to give up on Takashi, sticking with him unlike all his previous partners.
- First Appearance: I Read Minds
See Ultraman 80
- Power Crystal: A completely new ability to Zandrias in this series is to encase itself in a giant crystal that acts as defense and allows it to heal up quickly.
- First Appearance: Pega Runs Away from Home
- Spared by the Adaptation: Just like in previous series, this Gubila also spared by Ultraman Geed. It is also notable for not fighting an Ultra at all.
- The Last of These Is Not Like the Others: While it's not the first Kaiju to have a little star in the series (that honor going to the Alien Pitt Tri Tipp), it is the first giant-sized Kaiju to have one. On a franchise-wide example, this particular Gubila is the first one who doesn't even fight the Ultra in it's series, and is also the first one that actually assists an Ultra in combat.
- First Appearance: Ultraman Geed: The Movie: Connect the Wishes!
Portrayed by: Koichi Toshima (voice, episode 2), Shouma Yamamoto (voice, episode 18) Akira Okabe (suit)
- First Appearance: The Girl who Cuts Monsters
- Adult Fear: His entire shtick was to kidnap a little girl from underneath her family's noses.
- Avenging the Villain: The second Dada's goal was to kill Kei in revenge for killing the first one.
- Chase Fight: Pulls Laiha into one. Unfortunately for him, he soon pulls Riku into it as well.
- Evil Wears Black: His human disguise had him wore very dark clothing, with a black beanie and mouth mask to really hammer the point in.
- Evil vs. Evil: The second Dada. He stole a Legionoid from Belial and modified it in order to use it to kill one of Belial's minions, creating a three-way conflict when Riku and his friends get involved.
- Kill It with Fire: Ended up eating flames in his disguised form when he tried to capture Eri. Unfortunately for Eri, all that did was burn away his human disguise.
- In the Back: Dies this way when Kei teleports behind him, stabs him in the back barehanded, then fries him into pieces.
- Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: After Riku grabs Eri's container and Laiha dislodges Dada off of it with a roundhouse kick, Dada decides to cut his losses and hightails it.
- Stun Guns: Packed a pistol that knocks out anyone with a clean hit, which he used to knock out Eri's mom, uncle, and grandfather.
Portrayed by: Holly Kaneko (voice)
- First Appearance: The Geed Identity
Alien Shadow Kuruto
Portrayed by: Hirko Suzuki (voice and human form actor)
- First Appearance: Shadow of Shadows
For tropes applying to the Alien Shadow as a whole see the Ultraseven Character Sheet
- Child Soldier: He's a 'Child of Battle', a warrior raised to fight to conquer worlds.
- Stepford Smiler: Specialized in this as a result of Training from Hell.
- Tragic Villain: He's a grown up Child Soldier raised to be how he was by his people who were ravaged by Belial's rampage.
- First Appearance: Shadow of Shadows
- Back for the Dead: Returns to aid Geed, only to be killed by Belial. However, Zegan itself had fulfilled its role.
- Beam-O-War: Getting into one with Zegan causes the two beams to spiral and converge into a gigantic version of one of its wormholes.
- Chest Blaster: Its signature ability is the Zegant Beam, a beam of energy fired form its chest that, after hitting a target, opens up a small wormhole that sucks in the object, as well as anything near it.
- Expy: Its design is similar to Lagoras, especially of their heads. However, it is unknown if the suit is modified from said monster or a brand new one.
- Godzilla Threshold: The reason Zena didn't just destroy the summoning and control device in the first place: he wanted to keep the option open of using it against Belial in the event things got too dire. Unfortunately, Kuruto manages to get the controller and unleash him. Zena kept and eye on Zegan's regeneration and ends up using him for this reason anyway.
- Heel–Face Return: Is resurrected later on, but this time Zena's in the driver seat and he's on Geed's side.
- Mix-and-Match Critters: Resembles a hybrid of a crab, a dinosaur, a bat, and a hammerhead shark.
- Shock and Awe: Can shoot lightning from its pincers.
- Spell My Name with an "S": Also translated as Zegun.
- We Can Rebuild Him: Although a biological weapon, the AIB has no trouble recreating it.
Alien Godola Godo-Wynn
Portrayed by: Shinji Ozeki (voice), Kenji Kajikawa (suit)
- First Appearance: The First Day of the End of the World
- First Appearance: Inheritor of the Dream
See Ultraman Zero
- Grand Theft Prototype: Was stolen and modified from Kaiser Belial's army by Dada.
- First Appearance: Ultraman Geed: The Movie: Connect the Wishes!
- First Appearance: A Job Where You Investigate Aliens
- In Spite of a Nail: Tri-Tip stole this Eleking to avoid it getting used as a weapon. It still started destroying the city when it was fully grown, though for Tri-Tip having a Little Star.
- My Death Is Just the Beginning: Kei has one half needed to transform into Thunder Killer.
- Mythology Gag: An Alien Pitt is involved as to why an Eleking is on Earth, forcing a red hero to fight and eventually kill the monster with his Slugger.
- Eleking's defeat is a near-perfect reenactment of how the original one was beaten, with its tail being chopped off, antennae blown of an Emerium Ray, and finally getting slice through the head before exploding. The only difference is that Seven did the first two in opposite order.
- Shoot the Dog: Tri-Tip stole it as a tadpole and brought it to Earth to keep the other Alien Pitts from using it as a weapon, but it grew into a berserk monster anyway. In the end she begs Geed to put it down to keep it from wreaking havoc and to give it rest.
- First Appearance: Partners
See Return of Ultraman
- Dynamic Entry: Geed Primitive opens his fight with Earthtron (or Arstron depending on the translation) with plowing his feet into Earthtron seconds after transformation.
- Non-Malicious Monster: Make no mistake, Earthtron is very violent and dangerous, but it was ultimately acting on instinct and hunting Moko's Little Star. After being hit with Acro Smasher Geed's Smash Moon Healing, it burrows away without a fight.
- First Appearance: The Sword of an Oath
