    Ultraman Ginga 

Ultraman Ginga
Ultlive! Ultraman Ginga!

Voiced by: Tomokazu Sugita, Nicholas Clark (English dub), Victor Ruiz (Latin American Spanish dub)
A mysterious Ultraman whose Spark Doll resides in the Ginga Spark, Ultraman Ginga hails from the Land of Light's distant future and was prophesied in M78 legend. He has fought against his sworn enemy Dark Lugiel across the cosmos and through time, eventually arriving in the present where he manifested in Hikaru.
  • All Your Powers Combined: Ginga Strium, accessed by the fusing with Ultraman Taro via the Strium Brace. In this form he can use the special moves of the Six Ultra Brothers – Ultraman, Zoffy, Ultraseven, Jack, Ace, and Taro. This form is no longer accesible after Taro left with his job on Earth is done.
  • Blade Below the Shoulder: The Ginga Saber, an energy blade formed from his right arm.
  • Color-Coded for Your Convenience: Ginga's light-up panels change color for each of his moves — blue default, red for fireballs, yellow for thunderbolts, green for healing, and purple for the Ginga Slash.
  • Cosmic Motifs: His name is literally the Japanese for Galaxy. In addition, his crystals change color as a reference to the multitude colors of the galaxy.
  • Healing Hands: The Ginga Comfort, which works a lot like many of Ultraman Cosmos' powers by showering the enemy with a calming, healing light.
  • The Hero: This is as much his story as it is Hikaru's. He's the one who beat Dark Lugiel in the original Dark Spark War and their battle continues into the present day.
  • Playing with Fire: The Ginga Fireballs, in which he summons homing orbs of fire that he can direct at his foes as he pleases.
  • Shock and Awe: The Ginga Thunderbolt creates a vortex of lightning to engulf monsters.
  • Your Size May Vary: Ginga's height can be somewhat inconsistent at times, from as tall as a classic Ultra to half the avergae Ultra's height, with objects like lamp posts and overhead powerlines standing to Ginga's waist. This is due to financial issues faced by TsuPro during filming, where they can only adjust the size of foreground objects based off the sets. Later TsuPro would provide a canonical height for Ginga: Micro to infinity.

    Ultraman Victory 

Ultraman Victory
Ultlive! Ultraman Victory!

Voiced by: Kiyotaka Uji, Bryan Forrest (English dub)
An Ultraman who hails from the ancient underground civilization of the Victorian people, Ultraman Victory is the guardian of the Victorium stones that allow their civilization to flourish, with his Victory Lance passed through generations. But when dark forces begin to steal the crystals, Victory is forced to head to the surface to find the enemy, lending his power to the Victorian prince Shou. He debuts in Ultraman Ginga S.
  • Brought to You by the Letter "S": Victory has several V-shaped crystals adorning his body.
  • Equippable Ally: How the Spark Dolls work for him. Instead of turning into a monster, he gains a piece of them to use as a weapon on his right arm.
    • Arm Cannon: By using the King Joe Custom Spark Doll, Victory gains the robot's powerful Pedanium Launcher.
    • Cool Sword: By scanning Shepherdon's Spark Doll, Victory will be armed with the Shepherdon Saber, a sword that resembles said monster's back crystal.
    • Playing with Fire: Gains this with the EX Red King Spark Doll.
    • Power Fist: The EX Red King Spark Doll gives him the monster's massive fist, allowing him to not only punch harder, but create fiery eruptions by slamming the ground.
    • Power Pincers: His Sadorah Scissors, gained from using the Sadorah Spark Doll. Like the monster, he can stretch out the pincer arm to impossible lengths to hit foes from afar.
    • Shock and Awe: The Eleking Spark Doll grants him lightning-based abilities.
    • Lightning Lash: He gains a whip from Eleking Spark Dolls, which keeps Eleking's electric powers.
  • Finishing Move: Victorium Shoot: His signature move, which appears as an orange beam with multiple light orange Vs in it. Victory draws an energy V by raising his hands and the V and yellow energy is absorbed in the V Crystal on his right arm. It is fired from an "L" position from the V Crystal on Victory's wrists, which means it is fired from the back of his hand.
  • The Lancer: To Ultraman Ginga.
  • Multiform Balance:
    • Jack of All Stats: His normal form.
    • Super Form: Ultraman Victory Knight, an enhanced version of Victory. His red and black markings replaced with blue and silver and his V Crystals turned red. His main weapon is the Knight Timbre, a sword/flute object.
  • Non-Standard Character Design: Ultraman Victory is one of the few Ultras that doesn't have a circular color timer, instead having a V-shaped one. He also has a lot of black in his design, something rare for a good-aligned Ultra
  • Your Size May Vary: In a manner similar to Ginga, Victory's height as an Ultraman tends to bounce around a bit when compared to foreground objects. Once more, TsuPro would later provide a canonical height for Victory: Micro to infinity.

    Ultramen from Previous Series 

Ultraman Taro

Voiced by: Hiroya Ishimaru
The hero of his respective series an one of the most beloved Ultramen. During the Dark Spark War, Taro alongside his fellow Ultras was turned into a Spark Doll. For reasons unknown he kept his consciousness and some of his powers. He was the only Spark Doll that Hikaru could not Ultra Live into.
See Ultraman Taro for tropes applying to him in general

  • Height Angst: Taro bemoans over the fact that he's stuck as a figurine-sized Spark Doll and is powerless against giant kaiju.
    Taro: I wanna be big again!
  • The Mentor: To Hikaru, teaching our human protagonist about being an Ultra hero and battling the mysterious forces behind the Spark Dolls.
  • Sealed Good in a Can: Like all Spark Dolls, Ultraman Taro has been reduced to a toy-like figurine. Unlike all of them though, he has retained his consciousness.

  • Heel–Face Turn: Afte Jean-Killer is defeated by Ginga, and understanding the importance of dreams.

The only female member of UPG, Arisa is a capable fighter and excels with the team's vehicles.
  • Action Girl: She may be the sole female member of the team, but that doesn't mean that Arisa isn't capable of putting up a fight against human-sized foes or distracting the giant ones with some well-aimed shots.
  • The Smurfette Principle: Once again, she's the only female member of the UPG team.

  • Heel–Face Turn: Starts out as an enemy of the Victorians and the heroes but comes around after being talked down.
  • Revenge by Proxy: She plotted to avenge the deaths of her tribe by killing Shou, who was merely a descendant of the perpetrators (not that they were unjustified in sealing her tribe away).
  • Sealed Evil in a Can: Started out as this, as her tribe was sealed away in a parallel dimension for their attempts to weaponize the Victorium, but she broke out through unknown means. That said, by the end of the episode she's dropped the "evil" part.
  • You Killed My Father: Lost her entire tribe/family while they were sealed away by the other Victorians and initially allied with Exceller to avenge them by killing Shou.


    Dark Lugiel 

Dark Lugiel / Vict Lugiel
Click here for 

Voiced by: Tomokazu Sugita
The Big Bad of the series. Dark Lugiel is the mysterious entity behind the Dark Spark War that created the Spark Dolls. He despises Ultraman Ginga and seeks to destroy him for reasons unknown. He owns an enormous collection of Spark Dolls, hiding from our heroes and animating them to carry out his bidding.
  • Beam-O-War: His penultimate confrontation with Utraman Ginga is this, which lasts for nearly 2 minutes. He earlier gets into one with Taro, which is mostly tied until Taro gives his energy to a downed Ginga to let the latter fight again.
  • Big Bad: Of Ultraman Ginga, although his presence is unknown to the main characters. In Ginga S he takes this spot from Exceller once he's fully resurrected.
  • Dark Is Evil: As his name indicates, he embodies darkness and is an evil tyrant bent on making life itself come to a cease forever.
  • Demonic Possession: Spends most of Ginga possessing Shinrai Kyoko up until he gets explunged from her body.
  • Evil Counterpart: Of Ultraman Ginga, but reasons are too spoilerific to get into.
  • Expy: With his name, colour scheme, design elements like having visible toes and shoulder spikes and his origin as an Evil Counterpart of Ultraman Ginga possessing a protagonist, he reuses many aspects of Dark Lucifer, the scrapped final boss of Ultraman Nexus.
  • Forced Transformation: He possesses the ability to turn living beings into Spark Dolls, hoping to turn the entire universe into a place of unchanging stillness by doing so either directly through the Dark Spark or with his beams.
  • Hero Killer: Took out almost every single hero in the Ultra Series multiverse at the end of the Dark Spark War, defeated Ginga and nearly killed him and was able to match Taro in a fair fight for the most part. In Ginga S he easily defeats both Ginga and Victory as Vict Lugiel, turning them into Spark Dolls and their bodies to stone, and it takes a massive group effort with Mana requiring to sacrifice herself after linking herself to his robotic body as Vict Lugiel for him to be defeated.
  • The Juggernaut: As Vict Lugiel he's strong enough to handle both Ginga and Victory with ease, defeating them in one attack in their first true fight and it takes them giving their all with a Heroic Second Wind along with Mana weakening him to finally destroy him.
  • Knight of Cerebus: Most of the series is rather lighthearted and Dark Lugiel's minions are fairly silly and comedic despite their legitimate threat. Lugiel himself is devoid of any comedic qualities and his appearance shifts the tone towards a more serious situation. In Ginga S his resurrection marks the start of the Darkest Hour and he temporaily takes out both Ginga and Victory.
  • He Who Must Not Be Seen: In Ultraman Ginga, only his hands are seen for almost the entirety of the series.
  • Literal Split Personality: He and Ginga used to be a single entity, but due to their internal conflict on how to deal with living beings, they split and became mortal enemies.
  • Sizeshifter: Like all Ultras, Lugiel can change his size according to his needs, like Ginga he can even turn to infinite size.
  • Toy Transmutation: His Dark Spark allows him to transform other living beings into motionless Spark Dolls, lifeless toys. He can bring them back to life if he chooses to.

    Ultraman Ginga Antagonists 

Alien Valky

Voiced by: Tatsuya Hashimoto
The first Spark Doll resurrected by Dark Lugiel to distribute other Spark Dolls to dark-hearted humans, making him the first major antagonist in the series. This particular Valky is an energetic fellow who tends to spout random English phrases.
See the Ultraman Taro character sheet for tropes applying to the Alien Valky as a whole

  • Beware the Silly Ones: He looks like a cheery and energetic goofball with his upbeat attitude and habit of randomly shouting in English, but he's also a sly and manipulative villain who corrupts the hearts of people and almost succeeds in breaking apart Hikaru's friendships.
  • The Dragon: The first of several aliens revived by Dark Lugiel to carry out his bidding.
  • Gratuitous English: He has a habit of speaking in English randomly.
  • No Name Given: Despite being considered a character instead of a Monster of the Week, Alien Valky is all he's ever known as.

Jean-Killer / Jean-Nine

A Spark Doll of a giant robot that Ultraman Zero had once encountered when battling Alien Bat. It was used by a mysterious enemy to oppose Ultraman Ginga, although how he got it is something of a mystery.

See Ultraman Zero

  • Transforming Mecha: In this series, Jean-Nine can transform into a fighter jet called the Jean-Star — a trait unseen in the Ultraman Zero movies and specials.

Alien Icarus

Voiced by: Tomokazu Seki
The second agent of Dark Lugiel after Alien Valky is killed. This incarnation of Alien Icarus is a simpleminded fellow who collects six Spark Dolls in order to become Tyrant.
See the Ultraseven character sheet for tropes applying to the Alien Icarus as a whole

  • Beware the Silly Ones: Although a bumbling simpleton compared to other incarnations of Alien Icarus, this guy still proved to be a challenge for Hikaru and his friends, thanks to his transformation into the terrifying Tyrant.
  • The Dragon: The shortest-lived of the three aliens who are freed from Spark Doll form to carry out Dark Lugiel's bidding.
  • No Name Given: Despite being treated as a character rather than a typical Monster of the Week, this Alien Icarus is never given a name.
  • Simpleton Voice: Talks in a slow and low-pitched voice befitting of his bumbling nature.

Alien Nackle Gray

Voiced by: Kunji Hirano
The third alien revived to serve Dark Lugiel when Alien Icarus fails him. This Alien Nackle is extremely effeminate, but like Alien Valky before him, mainly hands out Spark Dolls to unwitting humans to transform.
See the Return of Ultraman character sheet for tropes applying to the Alien Nackle as a whole

  • Ambiguously Gay: He acts like a gay stereotype with his extremely camp and effeminate demeanor. He even blows a kiss at the Big Bad when he is first awoken from Spark Doll form.
  • Art Evolution: Gray uses a completely new Alien Nackle design, with a light gray body, a semi-rectangular head with larger eyes and a more pronounced "mouth", and white fur on his shoulders.
  • Beware the Silly Ones: A comically camp and effeminate alien seems like a joke villain, but Gray proved himself to be the most dangerous of the three aliens sent to carry out Dark Lugiel's bidding.
  • The Dragon: The last of the aliens revived by Lugiel to destroy Hikaru and his friends.

    Ultraman Ginga S Antagonists 


Voiced by: Takuya Eguchi
The Big Bad of Ultraman Ginga S and the self-proclaimed "Greatest Mind in the Universe". Exceller is an Alien Chibu who seeks to harness the power of Victorium for mysterious but nefarious purposes that force the Victorians to send Shou to the surface world. He relies on a variety of alien and robot minions to carry out his plans due to his lack of physical power.
See the Ultraseven character sheet for tropes applying to the Alien Chibu as a whole

  • Big Bad: Of Ultraman Ginga S as he's the one drawing out the Victorium Crystals from the ground for his evil plans. Though ends up usurped by Dark Lugiel once the latter is fully resurrected.
  • Big Bad Wannabe: Once Lugiel's mind is revived, he turns Exceller back into a Spark Doll and seizes control of Vict Lugiel for himself.
  • Gratuitous English: He tends to shout in English when he's furious at his lackeys.
  • Gratuitous French: He often refer to his allies as "Monsieur" Vorst, Muerte, Berume, etc.
  • Insufferable Genius: Exceller fancies himself as the "Greatest Mind in the Universe", and it shows through his arrogance towards everyone, including his allies, who he tends to trash-talk behind their backs.
  • Hate Sink: Jesus, this dude is just as bad as Lugiel, and unlike Lugiel, Exceller doesn't have the excuse of being a Literal Split Personality to explain the reasons behind his villainy. He has a massive superiority complex and sees everyone else beneath him. He treats his own minions, including One-Zero like trash especially once everything is all said and done. He has caused so much misery throughout Ginga S all for the sake of power and made Lugiel look inferior.
  • Jerkass: Arrogant to the extreme, abusive to his lackeys, and merciless to his enemies. Exceller cares only for absolute power, hoping that by using the Victorium Crystals, he will become not just the smartest creature in the cosmos, but the strongest.
  • Mini-Mecha: Due to the fact that his species are essentially giant brains with faces and tentacles, he pilots a small mecha called Chibu Loader Strong in order to do things only a humanoid could do.
  • Non-Action Big Bad: Exceller remains on his spaceship near the Moon 95% of the time, sending his various minions to do his dirty work. Justified for as an Alien Chibu, he's physically very weak and only has the brains to come up with schemes for others to carry out, and part of his plan is to gain a body powerful enough to match his mind. When he does acquire such a body as Five King, he nearly beats Victory and Ginga to death.
  • One-Winged Angel: Eventually transforms into Five King to deal with Victory and Ginga personally.
  • Uncertain Doom: His spark doll was left inside Vict Lugiel's body and wasn't retrieved after Vict Lugiel's destruction, which doesn't bode well for him.
  • You Have Outlived Your Usefulness: He likes to deliver this fate to his minions. Lugiel does this to him in turn once the latter has fully resurrected.

Android One-Zero (Mana)

Played by: Moga Mogami
Exceller's second-in-command, an android girl built to act as his Spark Doll-using agent on Earth.
  • Co-Dragons: With Vorst, as both are Exceller's most important lackeys, command his Chiburoid troopers, and carry out the majority of his Spark Doll-using schemes. Until her Heel–Face Turn, that is.
  • Heel–Face Turn: She joins UPG about halfway through the series when Exceller sends her on a suicide mission and she takes enough of the alien's general mistreatment of her.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Makes sure to weaken Vict Lugiel so Ginga and Victory can defeat him, but at the cost of her life when she perishes in the destruction of Lugiel. Luckily UPG backed up her data to rebuild her
  • Shock and Awe: She can shoot lightning from her hands, a variation of the original Alien Chibu android's killer joy buzzer.
  • Robot Girl: She's a modernized version of Android Zero-One, another android lackey who had appeared in Alien Chibu's debut episode of Ultraseven.
  • We Can Rebuild Him: UPG managed to back up her data and prepare to restore and rebuild her in The Stinger of the final episode.

Alien Guts Vorst

Voiced by: Horii Kaneko
The self-declared "Strongest in Space", Vorst is an Alien Guts mercenary hired by Exceller to assist Android One-Zero.
See the Ultraseven character sheet for tropes applying to the Alien Guts as a whole

  • Co-Dragons: Alongside Android One-Zero, though Vorst is promoted to a solo Dragon about halfway through the series.
  • Evil Sounds Deep: Has a gruff and booming voice.
  • It's All About Me: Vorst has a huge sense of pride, calling himself the strongest person in the universe and referring himself as Ore-Sama ("my magnificent self"). He will often disobey Exceller's direct orders to do as he pleases thus.
  • Spell My Name With An S: Due to the confusion with "B" and "V" as well as "L" and "R" in the Japanese language, Vorst's name is just as often translated as Bolst.

Alien Zetton Berume

First Appearance: The Resurrection of Lugiel
Voiced by: Yuki Ono
A new alien mercenary hired by Exceller. This Alien Zetton dresses and behaves like a disco artist.
See Ultraman TV Series
  • Dance Battler: Likes to dance and incorporates some of that style in his fights.
  • The Dragon: To Alien Chibu Exceller... Or so he claimed. In reality he actually serves Dark Lugiel and is quick to ditch his servitude to Exceller once Lugiel is close to resurrecting.
  • You Shall Not Pass!: A villainous example. When Hikaru and Shou prepare for a rematch against Vict Lugiel, he leads the remaining Chiburoids and Lugiel's Dark Agents (Icarus, Nackle and Valky) as the Dark Lugiel Rangers to stop them, forcing their allies to clear the coast for them.


Exceller's robot soldiers who serve as cannon fodder for the villains and are also able to use Spark Dolls.

  • Mecha-Mooks: Their role is to act as expendable and unintelligent footsoldiers for Exceller and his henchmen.

Kaiju and Aliens

    Appearing in Ultraman Ginga 

Black King

First Appearance: Town of Falling Stars
The first monster Spark Doll discovered by Hikaru and his friends. Hikaru uses it to battle the enemy whenever Ultraman Ginga isn't available.
See Return of Ultraman

  • Adaptational Heroism: Due to the fact that Hikaru and his friends discovered the Spark Doll before any villains got to use it, this is the only series in which Black King is a good guy.

Thunder Darambia

First Appearance: Town of Falling Stars
The first Spark Doll Alien Valky gives out, this one being an electrical version of Neo Darambia. He hands it to a pair of sleazy garbagemen who have just been dumping their trash into the forest
See Ultraman Dyna

  • Art Evolution: Compared to Neo Darambia, Thunder Darambia possesses the five eyes on the basic Darambia, clawed hands, some sort of organ on its chest, and, most distinctly, four electrical rods growing from its back.
  • Shock and Awe: The original Neo Darambia had some electrical powers, but Thunder Darambia is entirely centered around it. It still possesses the shocking hand tentacles of the original, but can also fire lightning bolts from the coils growing on its back.
  • Starter Villain: For Ultraman Ginga.
  • Your Size May Vary: Thunder Darambia is only 40 meters tall compared to the 65-meter height of the original Neo Darambia. Justified as many Ultra monsters that appear in this series are not as tall as Neo Darambia (usually 40-50 meters), so Thunder Darambia had to be scaled down to avoid inconsistency.


First Appearance: A Midsummer Night's Dream
Voiced by: Koichi Toshima
The second Spark Doll from Alien Valky. The user is a bullying biker who likes to chase women around to scare them for kicks.
See Ultra Q

King Pandon

First Appearance: The Twin-Headed Flame Beast
Alien Valky's third Spark Doll. It is given to a woman who seeks to burn down Furoboshi Elementary School.
See Ultraseven


First Appearance: The Idol is Ragon
A Spark Doll given to Chigusa by Alien Valky.
See Ultra Q

  • Sizeshifter: In this series, Ragon possesses the ability to change its size, referencing the human-sized original of Ultra Q and the one that was turned giant by an atomic bomb in Ultraman (gaining atomic breath likewise).


First Appearance: The Hater of Dreams
A Spark Doll that Alien Valky had given to Kenta as part of his gambit to destroy the bonds between Hikaru and his friends. Later in Ultraman Ginga S, Vorst uses it alongside Velokron's. It returns again in Ultra Fight Victory when Yapool resurrects it alongside Vakishim and Velokron to battle Ultraman Leo and his brother Astra.
See Ultraman Ace

  • Villain Team-Up: With Velokron in Ultraman Ginga S and Vakishim as well in Ultra Fight Victory.

Dark Ultra Warriors

First Appearance: The Hater of Dreams (Ultraman Tiga) The Jet-Black Ultra Brothers (Ultraman and Ultraseven)
Evil versions of Ultraman, Ultraseven, and Ultraman Tiga used by the forces of evil from the Ultra heroes' respective Spark Dolls.


First Appearance: Ultraman Ginga Theater Special
Alien Icarus' One-Winged Angel, made by merging himself with the Spark Dolls of Red King, Bemstar, Seagorath, Hanzagrian, King Crab, and Barabas.
See Ultraman Taro

  • One-Winged Angel: Referencing Alien Icarus' ears being part pf Tyrant's composition, this appearance from Tyrant is simply Alien Icarus merging himself with the Spark Dolls of its remaining components to become a monster.

Dark Zagi

First Appearance: Ultraman Ginga Theater Special
The Big Bad of Ultraman Nexus resurrected by Dark Lugiel to defeat Ultraman Ginga after Alien Icarus' failure as Tyrant.
See Ultraman Nexus

  • Villain Decay: The savage and calculating Big Bad of one of the Ultra Series' darkest entries is reduced to simply being an expendable minion in this series (though he still maintains his strength and fierceness).

Dark Galberos

First Appearance: The Closed World
The first Spark Doll used by Gray, picking a disgraced professional boxer as its user.
See Ultraman Nexus

  • Art Evolution: The only difference between Dark Galberos and the original Galberos is that the former is simply painted black.


First Appearance: The Stolen Ginga Spark
A Spark Doll given by Gray to an executive from Ichinotani Construction, the company that seeks to build over Furoboshi Elementary School.
See Ultraman TV Series

  • Metamorphosis Monster: For the first time since its original appearance, Zaragas displays its adaptation ability, as its user deliberately sheds off the monster's armour to grow huge spines all over its body.
  • Mythology Gag: The spikes were actually a scrapped concept from Zaragas' debut episode in the original Ultraman.
  • Shock and Awe: Zaragas has the ability to shoot lightning from its spikes and electrocute those it impales on its spikes in this series.
  • Spikes of Doom: In this series, Zaragas switches out its blinding flashes for long spikes growing from where its bulb sockets usually are.

Red King

First Appearance: The Stolen Ginga Spark
A Spark Doll used by Misuzu to battle Zaragas.
See Ultraman TV Series

  • Adaptational Heroism: While Ultra Galaxy Mega Monster Battle NEO also featured a Red King fighting the bad guys, that one was used by Anti-Hero Grande. Here, Red King is used by Misuzu, making this the first true heroic appearance of Red King.
  • Adaptational Wimp: However, Misuzu is not experienced with using Spark Dolls to fight, so Red King doesn't do very well against Zaragas. In any other appearance, Zaragas would have been toast.


First Appearance: The Jet-Black Ultra Brothers
A Spark Doll given by Gray to the general manager of Ichinotani Construction.
See Ultraman TV Series


First Appearance: The Jet-Black Ultra Brothers
A Spark Doll used by Kenta, Chigusa, and Misuzu to battle Antlar.
See Ultraman Mebius

  • Adaptational Heroism: Like Black King, this is the only series in which Jashrine is a good guy, due to the fact that Hikaru's grandpa already had the Spark Doll for some reason.
  • Adaptational Wimp: Justified as Misuzu, Kenta, and Chigusa were unable to coordinate well enough to make use of Jashrine's powers against Antlar.

Super Grand King

First Appearance: Darkness and Light
A Spark Doll used by Gray himself to battle Ultraman Ginga, the Ultra warriors, and Jean-Nine in one final attempt to destroy the school. It is later resurrected by Yapool in the events of Ultra Fight Victory. This is Grand King's first appearance in a proper series, having debuted in the 1984 movie Ultraman Story.
See Ultraman Taro

  • Art Evolution: Due to the fact that this is Grand King's first appearance in nearly 30 years, the robot monster is a brighter metallic colour, larger horns and spikes, more detailed legs, a thicker tail, orange eyes and chest patterns, and different arms as described below.
  • Attack Reflector: Super Grand King can absorb energy through its back and launch the beams from its Chest Blaster. This ability was not present in the original Grand King.
  • Back from the Dead: Yapool revives the monster alongside its original creator Juda in Ultra Fight Victory, turning the monster into Super Grand King Spectre. It's still really friggin' unstoppable.
  • Chest Blaster: Another power not present in the original Grand King is Super Grand King's ability to fire a devastating red laser from the orange lines on its chest. This ability was carried onto Maga-Grand King in Ultraman Orb.
  • Right Hand of Doom: Whereas the original had a drill hand, Super Grand King has a massive pincer to go with its giant claw. When Yapool revives it, the pincer becomes a sword.

    Appearing in Ultraman Ginga S 


First Appearance: The Opening Force
An ally of the Victorian civilization. He often helps Ultraman Victory against Android One-Zero's monsters.
  • Breath Weapon: Can breathe a beam of Victorium Energy by charging up the Victorium Crsytal on his back.
  • Expy: In the same way that the Victorians are based on the Underground People from Ultraman, Shepherdon is based on their monster Telesdon.
  • Equippable Ally: As the Shepherdon Sabre, where the monster is transformed into a powerful sword for it's master to wield.
  • Gentle Giant: It must be emphasized that Shepherdon is a completely peaceful monster that lives in harmony with the Victorians. Its appearance does alarm UPG as the creature comes to the surface to try stop Exceller from pulling Victorium Crystals out of the earth, but the surface-dwelling heroes quickly realize that the monster is on their side.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: During the battle against Velokron and Doragory, Shepherdon pushes Victory out of the way to take Velokron's missiles for the hero, causing the monster to become a Spark Doll for the rest of the series.
  • Power Crystal: The source of Shepherdon's abilities is the Victorium Crystal growing on his back. This crystal is 10 times more powerful than a standard Victorium Crystal and possesses healing powers. Naturally, this makes him a target for those seeking immense power like Exceller and Commander Kamiyama of UPG.
  • Tunnel King: Being a subterranean monster, Shepherdon can burrow very well.
  • Undying Loyalty: Shepherdon is a devoted ally of Ultraman Victory and Shou, having befriended the Victorian prince when he was a boy. He helps Victory out in the battles against Gudon, Fire Golza, Gan Q, Velokron and Doragory, and Lunatyx and Victory Killer when the odds turn against the hero, even when Shepherdon's own life was potentially at a greater risk as a result.

First Appearance: The Forgotten Past
A Spark Doll given by Exceller to a Victorian named Hiyori to get her revenge on Shou and Queen Kisara.
See Ultraman TV Series

  • Villain Team-Up: With Fire Golza until Hiyori is convinced to turn against Exceller.

Fire Golza

Gan Q

First Appearance: Activate! Magnewave Strategy
A Spark Doll used by Vorst to draw out Victorium energy from Shepherdon using its Absorption Beam powers.

Five King

First Appearance: Activate! Magnewave Strategy
A hybrid of Fire Golza, Melba, Reicubas, Gan Q, and Super C.O.V. used by Exceller to battle Ginga and Victory by himself. He created it in the same way Alien Icarus transformed into Tyrant.
  • Achilles' Heel: Five King relies on a Victorium Crystal in its back as the source of its immense power. Destroying the crystal weakens the monster greatly.
  • All Your Powers Combined: Has the abilities of all five of the monsters that compose its form, able to combine all of them into one supermassive attack.
    • Also, its Reicubas component's fire and ice powers are combined into a single beam of fire and ice energies, and it can fire a combo of Golza's Ultrasonic Ray and Melba's Eye Beams from its head.
  • Attack Reflector: Thanks to its Gan Q component, Five King can absorb beam attacks through its Gan Q hand and shoot them back out.
  • Chest Blaster: A modified version of C.O.V.'s Flash Beam.
  • Clip Its Wings: Gets both its wings shredded off by the Ultramen duo, Ginga and Victory, in the final battle, rendering it flightless and a sitting duck.
  • Continuity Nod: Exceller made Five King by studying how Alien Icarus turned himself into Tyrant in the events of Ultraman Ginga.
  • Eyes Do Not Belong There: In addition to the Gan-Q eye taking up Five King's left hand? The monster also has Melba's eyes on it's forehead and Super C.O.V's on it's belly. But that's what would happen when you comine five monsters into one and add the facial features of all five across it's body.
  • Giant Flyer: Borrowed from Melba's wings.
  • Hand Blast: Its hands are the bodies of Reicubas and Gan Q, allowing it to fire Reicubas' elemental attacks and Gan Q's Eye Beams.
  • Hybrid Monster: Of the five most iconic kaiju from the three Ultra Series that revived the franchise in the 90s with great success (two from Tiga, one from Dyna, and two from Gaia). To boot:
    • Head: Fire Golza and Melba
    • Torso: Fire Golza and Super C.O.V.
    • Right arm: Reigubas
    • Left arm: Gan Q
    • Wings: Melba
    • Legs: Super C.O.V.
    • Tail: Melba

  • One-Winged Angel: Exceller MonsLived into Five King for the specific purpose of dealing with Ginga and Victory by himself after his latest plan's failure proved to be the final straw.


First Appearance: Resurrected Life
A Spark Doll used by Vorst alongside Bemstar when Exceller grants him a Chibu Circuit that allows him to use his Doppelgänger Spin abilities to Mons Live as two individuals.
See Ultraman TV Series

  • Breath Weapon: Asides from its usual blue energy beam, Bemular has gained Vorst's binding energy beam (though the alien normally fires those from his hands).
  • Doppelgänger Spin: This ability is not normal to Bemular, but rather gained as a result of Vorst's MonsLive.
  • Teleport Spam: Also an ability inherited from Vorst.
  • Villain Team-Up: With Bemstar, thanks to Vorst' double MonsLive.

Alien Akumania Muerte

First Appearance: Gan Q's Tears
Voiced by: Kiyohiko Ueki (also human form actor)
Another alien thug hired by Exceller. He is given Gan Q's Spark Doll, which he gives to a salaryman named Yoshida, only to end up with a friendly, human-sized Gan Q instead.
See Ultraman Leo

  • Gratuitous Spanish: He peppers his speech with Spanish phrases, even addressing Ginga as "Señor Ginga".
  • Large Ham: Speaks like a villain from a Spaghetti Western.

Alien Metron Jace

First Appearance: In Order to Meet You
Voiced by: Kohei Shiotsuka (also human form actor)
An Alien Metron who is secretly a huge fan of Chigusa's work when she begins her career as a singer. He was originally a chemist hired by Exceller to create a serum that would causes people using glowsticks at Chigusa's concerts to become violently insane.
See Ultraseven

  • Back for the Finale Reappears in the final episode alongside Chigusa and Kenta, though no longer is his human disguise.
  • Heel–Face Turn: He was originally a mercenary hired by Exceller, but changed his mind and decided to live on Earth as a human after becoming a fan of Chigusa's work.
  • Mythology Gag: His plan to create glowsticks that would drive people into violent insanity is a callback to the original Alien Metron's scheme to do the same with cigarettes.
    • He also helps Ginga and Victory battle Zoa Muruchi at sunset, referencing the original's iconic sunset battle with Ultraseven.
  • Token Heroic Orc: Jace is the first non-evil Alien Metron in the franchise.

Zoa Muruchi

A Spark Doll used by Vorst to try kill Jace.
See Return of Ultraman


First Appearance: Split UPG!
Tired of Vorst's constant failures, Exceller gives him this powerful Spark Doll to kill Ginga and Victory, but warns that if the Alien Guts fails, it will be the last one he gets.
See Ultraman Taro

Hyper Zetton

First Appearance: The Resurrection of Lugiel
The Spark Doll Exceller gives Berume.
See Ultraman Zero

  • Art Evolution: Hyper Zetton's wings are removed from its appearance in Ultraman Saga. Considering the characters call it just "Zetton", this might have been to make the monster more like the normal Zetton (complete with an Alien Zetton using it).

A lonely and disgruntled alien who attacks Chigusa and Kenta after the events of Ultraman Ginga, using the Zetton Spark Doll.

A Choju sent by Yapool to attack Shou, Sakuya, and Repi. Ultraman Hikari shows up to help Victory fight it.

Ace Killer, who has now been modified by Yapool with the purpose of destroying Ultraman Victory.
See Ultraman Ace

  • Art Evolution: Compared to Ace Killer and Mebius Killer, Victory Killer possesses the same golden coloring as the latter, but no longer has the Mebium Brace, as it now has Ultraman Victory's powers alongside those of the original Ace Killer.

Juda Spectre

First Appearance: Ultra Fight Victory
Voiced by: Nobuaki Kanemitsu
The Big Bad of the 1984 movie Ultraman Story, as well as the lesser-known spinoff Andro Melos. He is resurrected, alongside his creation Grand King, by Yapool to destroy Ultraman Ginga and Ultraman Victory. His siblings Gina and Mold are revealed in Ultraman X to also have been revived by Yapool.
See Ultraman Taro

  • Back from the Dead: He had been killed by Zoffy in the events of Andro Melos, but now Yapool has resurrected him, as well as Grand King and his siblings.
  • Good Hurts Evil: The holy melody played on the Knight Timbre can weaken him.
  • Master Swordsman: Whereas he was a Non-Action Big Bad in his debut, here Juda shows off incredible strength and skill when it comes to using his trusty sword.
  • Playing with Fire: Can fire blasts of purple flame from his sword.
  • Retcon: In Ultraman Story, he was born from a distortion in space. With this series, it has been changed to that instead he has the power to create spatial distortions, which served to explain the contradictions between Andro Melos and Ultraman Story about his exact nature.
  • Space Master: See Retcon above.


Voiced by: Tatsuhisa Suzuki, G. Larry Butler (English dub)
The Big Bad of The Movie. Etelgar is a powerful demon-like being who seeks to capture Ultramen, successfully imprisoning Ultraman Tiga, Ultraman Dyna, Ultraman Gaia, Ultraman Cosmos, Ultraman Nexus, Ultraman Max, and Ultraman Mebius, with Ultraman Zero in hot pursuit of him. He then turns his attention to Ginga and Victory...
  • Barrier Warrior: Able to make a shield of purple energy from his hands to block Ultras' Finishing Moves.
  • Big Bad: Of The Movie.

  • The Collector: His goal is to capture and imprison all of the Ultramen so that they will no longer be able to stand in the way of him conquering The Multiverse.
  • Gold-Colored Superiority: He's mostly gold and is a powerful enemy capable of defeating even Ultraman Noa.
  • I Know What You Fear: His most powerful ability. Etelgar can fire a beam of light from his hands that causes those who look at it to experience their worst fears. He can also collect the fear of other beings and use them to create Eteldummies, duplicates of one's most feared enemies, including a gigantic version of Dark Lugiel.
  • Mook Maker: Uses his Eteldummies to obstruct the 10 Ultra Warriors, creating Five King for Tiga, Dyna, and Gaia (as the monster is a hybrid of some of their most famous enemies), Dark Mephisto for Nexus, Alien Sran for Max, Alien Empera for Mebius, and Ultraman Belial for Zero.
  • Multiversal Conqueror: His ultimate goal is to conquer all the Ultra Series universes, but in order to do that he'll need to eliminate all their respective heroes first.
  • Our Demons Are Different: Strongly resembles the part, although he's actually an alien.
  • Playing with Fire: Can launch barrages of fireballs from his body.
  • Skull for a Head: He covers it up with a mask in his early appearances, but once Zero burns it away, even he's taken aback by is disturbing appearance.
  • Super-Strength: To put it simply, He was so powerful that Ultraman Noa was turned back into Nexus as a result of battling against him.
  • Super-Toughness: Was able to survive almost every finishing move thrown at him. Hikaru and Shou had to learn to do their Fusion Dance Ginga-Victory to even stand a chance.
  • Weaponized Teleportation: Able to fire a purple laser form his eyes and hands that teleports targets.

Princess Arena

Portrayed by: Arisa Komiya, Beth Ann Sweezer (English dub)
The princess of the peaceful planet Zant. She had been captured by Etelgar and had her mind altered into believing that the Ultramen had destroyed her homeworld so that she would help the vile being capture all of the Ultra warriors by using her species' mirror-based powers to imprison them in Etelgar's Space-Time Castle.
  • The Dragon: Serves as Etelgar's main henchwoman while she's brainwashed by her. In the movie she has a Lancer vs. Dragon battle against Ultraman Cosmos (one of The Lancer duo besides Ultraman Zero) in human form.
  • Fake Memories: When Etelgar kidnapped her, he altered her mind so that she would believe the Ultramen had destroyed her homeworld (in reality, the planet is still fine) and Etelgar rescued her, thus making her eager to assist him in his quest to capture the Ultra heroes.
  • Human Aliens: Her species are shown as such.
  • Magic Mirror: Etelgar specifically enslaved her due to her species' powers over such. To wit:
    • She carries with her a mirror that fires a golden ray that imprisons its targets inside a floating mirror. This is what Etelgar uses to capture the Ultra heroes.
    • She can summon several mirrors that then fire bolts of energy.
    • She can deflect attacks.
    • She can teleport between reflective surfaces.
    • She can see wherever she wishes by looking through a mirror.
