Ultraman Mebius

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ultraman_mebius_movie.png
Voiced by: Shunji Igarashi (from Ultraman Mebius to Mega Monster Battle: Ultra Galaxy Legends), Jun Fukuyama (from Ultraman Ginga S movie onwards)
The Ultra hero of the franchise's 40th anniversary, Ultraman Mebius is the first Ultra hero of the original Showa universe to appear on Earth since Ultraman 80. He is inexperienced and relatively young compared to his predecessors, but learns about living up to the legacy of the Ultra heroes before him as the series goes on. He takes on the form of Mirai Hibino. Ultraman Mebius would also have a few appearances in later entries of the franchise.
  • Action Bomb: The Mebium Dynamite, which he learned from his mentor Ultraman Taro.
  • Barrier Warrior: Can create a small force field with his hands.
  • Blade Below the Shoulder: The Mebium Blade is a mix of Type 1 and Type 2. It's also his main ability in Brave Mode.
  • Dead Person Impersonation: It's revealed in Episode 22 that his human form, Mirai, is actually that of Hiroto Ban, the son of a spaceship captain who had sacrificed his life to rescue the ship in a crisis. Mebius had chosen that form because when he arrived at Earth, he was unable to save Hiroto but also admired his selflessness.
  • The Hero: Duh!
  • Naïve Newcomer: Ultraman Mebius is very inexperienced in comparison to previous Ultra warriors, so the series focuses a lot on his development as a hero.
  • Playing with Fire: His Burning Brave mode gives him the Mebium Burst that allows him to create a ball of fire to finish off monsters barbecue-style.
  • The Power of Friendship: His Burning Brave mode is formed by such. Taken a step further with Phoenix Mode in the Grand Finale.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The red to Hikari's blue.
  • Rookie Red Ranger: As stated above, Ultraman Mebius is pretty new to the whole "Ultra Hero" thing, but that doesn't stop him from trying his best.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": Sometimes called Ultraman Moebius.
  • Spin Attack: The Mebium Drill Kick, which he learns in Episode 34 in order to defeat Alien Reflect.

Hunter Knight Tsurugi / Ultraman Hikari

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ultraman_hikari_movie_i.png
Click here  for Hunter Knight Tsurugi
Voiced by: Keiichi Nanba
Originally an Ultraman scientist tasked with looking over the Aarb for study, Ultraman Hikari became Hunter Knight Tsurugi through his thirst for vengeance when the Aarb were devoured by Bogal. He came to Earth for Bogal and took on the form of Ryu's late hero and previous leader of the GUYS team, Kazuya Serizawa. After the defeat of Bogal, he was healed by the Ultra Mother and freed from his Armour of Vengeance, becoming Ultraman Hikari again. Afterwards, he would make sporadic appearances in the series, as well as later shows. He also starred in a 3-episode miniseries about his backstory.
  • Anti-Hero: As Hunter Knight Tsurugi.
  • Badass Bookworm: He used to be a scientist and still has a knack for it (such as creating the Knight Timbre for Ultraman Victory's use in Ultra Fight Victory and Ultra Capsules of Ultraman Geed), but that doesn't mean he's a capable fighter (albeit not before he became Tsurugi).
  • Bilingual Bonus: Hikari means "light", which Ryu had suggested. However, the team finds it to be an unimpressive name.
  • Blade Below the Shoulder: Largely relies on his Knight Beam Blade, which is similar to Mebius' own blade.
  • Dead Person Impersonation: His human form, Captain Serizawa, was killed when Dinozaur attacked Earth. However, to Ryu, Ultraman Hikari will always just be Captain Serizawa.
  • Friendly Rivalry: With Ultraman Mebius. He likes to show up at the last minute of monster battles and steal the victory from Mebius.
  • Master Swordsman: Whereas most Ultramen rely mostly on martial arts and beam attacks, Ultraman Hikari primarily relies on his Knight Beam Blade to finish off monsters and duel with foes.
  • My Greatest Failure: His inability to protect Aarb from Bogal, which was what originally transformed him into Hunter Knight Tsurugi.
  • Put On The Bus: He leaves Earth in Episode 17 and only reappears in Episode 35 and the finale.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The blue (literally) to Mebius' red. It's also worth noting that he's the first blue Ultraman to appear in the original Showa continuity.
  • Roaring Rampage of Revenge: Was so consumed by his desire to avenge Aarb as Tsurugi that he never stopped to think about how his actions affected others. Best shown in Episode 7 "Fanton's Lost Item", where he blows up some buildings when he attempts to kill Bogal with his Knight Shoot and shows no regret for it.

    GUYS (Guards for UtilitY Situations) 

The attack team of this series was founded during the Ultramen's absence in case the monsters suddenly returned. As almost every member of the original team was killed when the monsters reappeared, the team of the series are a very inexperienced lot made primarily from random civilians. However, they slowly grow to become a close-knit group of friends dedicated to not being left on the sidelines whenever Ultraman shows up to save the day.

The Main Team

As a whole

  • Badass Crew: Unlike the other defense teams of the Showa timeline, GUYS has proven themselves to be equals to Ultraman Mebius. Many battles in the series see them play a pivotal role in helping defeat the Monster of the Week more than almost any other entry in the Ultra Series.
  • Fire-Forged Friends: They all encountered each other by fate during Dinozaur's attack on Tokyo and were asked to join GUYS by Mirai. Dozens of battles later, they've become one of the closest-knit teams the franchise has seen.
  • Odd Friendship: A tomboyish motorcyclist, a grandstanding soccer player, a hot-blooded defense team veteran, a timid preschool teacher, a medical student/kaiju nerd, and Ultraman Mebius disguised as a human. They may not be the most normal of defense teams, but they're True Companions through and through.
  • True Companions: Perhaps, the truest companions of all the defense teams.

Mirai Hibino

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mirai.png
Played by: Shunji Igarashi
The series protagonist, Mirai Hibino is Ultraman Mebius in a human disguise. He is a naive, but warm-hearted and earnest individual who loves everyone equally. Like all Ultramen, he keeps his identity secret from his team, but this changes in Episodes 29 and 30. He transforms into Ultraman Mebius via the Mebium Brace on his wrist.
  • Adorkable: He's really naive but also really kindhearted, which makes him extremely endearing. Even moreso when you consider that he's literally Ultraman Mebius in human form. He's even been referred as "the cute weirdo".
  • Aliens Among Us: Since he's Ultraman Mebius in human form.
  • All-Loving Hero: He's very close with all his teammates (they're all his best friend), treats everybody respectfully, and sees the best in people. Naturally, the bad guys attempt to break his faith in humanity in their schemes.
    Aya Jinguji: (bringing Mirai on a "date") Mirai, is there anybody you like?
    Mirai: (unaware of the "date") Of course! There's Ryu, there's Captain Sakomizu — I like everyone at GUYS!
  • The Heart: He was the one who brought GUYS together, after all.
  • Idiot Hero: Downplayed, he's better described as extremely naive as he doesn't quite understand how things work on Earth.
  • Meaningful Name: Hibi no Mirai means "Days of Future" in Japanese which he chose when Hiroto Ban's father told him to live out "his days of future" in place of his late son.
  • Nice Guy: Mirai is as kind and sincere as they get with Ultraman protagonists.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The blue to the hot-blooded Ryu's red.
  • Sensitive Guy and Manly Man: The sensitive guy to Ryu's manly man.
  • Transformation Trinket: The Mebium Brace, which is actually part of his wrist. It can also shoot small bolts of energy when needed.

Ryu Aihara

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ryu_3.jpg
Played by: Masaki Nishina
The only member of GUYS from the original crew (who were all killed by Dinozaur), Ryu is hot-blooded and rather cold on the outside. Inside, he is deeply passionate of his duties in protecting people from kaiju. He can often be seen reciting the Five Ultra Pledges, something passed down to him by his hero and previous GUYS captain, Kazuya Serizawa.
  • A Day in the Limelight: "Formation of Our Vows", "The Resurrection of Yapool", and the two-parter "Day of Farewell" and "Flames of Promise".
  • Bash Brothers: His friendship with Mirai can be best described as such.
  • Hot-Blooded: And how! Marina often refers to him as "a hot-blooded idiot".
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: It's easy to call him out for his rashness and short temper, but he's also extremely devoted to GUYS and deeply passionate about just causes.
  • The Lancer: To Mirai.
  • Leeroy Jenkins: Occasionally, his Hot-Blooded attitude leads him into this role, like when he attacked Beo while the Alien Mates was in the middle of discussing potential for peace talks with Mirai and enraging the alien.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: The red to the warmhearted Mirai's blue.
  • Sensitive Guy and Manly Man: The manly man to Mirai's sensitive guy.

George Ikaruga

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/george_0.png
Played by: Daisuke Watanabe
A former all-star soccer player on the Spanish team, George is a somewhat arrogant fellow and something of a loner, but also an excellent pilot and sharpshooter with excellent vision.
  • A Day in the Limelight: "Reverse Shot", "The Lonely Grandstander", and "Deathrem's Plan".
  • Berserk Button: He doesn't like it when people call him "Mr. Ikaruga".
  • Casanova Wannabe: A Running Gag is him attempting to impress various women by pulling out a rose from nowhere. He even once tried to hit on Teppei's mom!
  • Gratuitous Spanish: He tends to pepper his speech with random Spanish words. Justified as he was formerly a part of Spain's national soccer team.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Even though he's something of an arrogant loner, he's genuinely a good guy devoted to his team and his job.
  • Loner-Turned-Friend: A big part of his development is about this, as even when he was a soccer player, he was unpopular with his teammates for his "lone wolf" attitude in a team game.
  • Super Senses: He has above-average sight, allowing him to see fast-moving objects better than the rest of GUYS.
  • Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?: Despite being a perfectly good swimmer, he's afraid of the ocean. He insists that it's because the ocean has it's own rules, thus not meant for people like him to go to (he said the same about going to space as well), but in Episode 25, it turns out that when he was younger, every time he went to the ocean, something terrible happened to him, so he decided the sea just had it out for him.

Marina Kazama

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/marina_4.png
Played by: Ai Saikawa
Once a motorcyclist with dreams of becoming famous, Marina often acts as a sister to other members of the team — particularly George and Konomi. She also has superhuman hearing which gives her faster reflexes — a trait useful for fighting kaiju.
  • A Day in the Limelight: "Marina of the Wind", "The Ocean Waves of Time", and "Ace's Wish".
  • Action Girl: Of GUYS, in comparison to the more timid Konomi.
  • Cool Big Sis: Plays this role to GUYS, particularly George and Konomi. She's also revealed to have been one to her actual brothers.
  • Super Senses: Has highly enhanced hearing, allowing her to pick up on sounds that the rest of GUYS can't hear. However, as a motorcyclist it also distracts her as she gets unnerved if the engine makes even the slightest suspicious noise.
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: The Tomboy to Konomi's Girly Girl.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: Her relationship with Ryu, as she frequently snarks and rolls her eyes at his Hot-Blooded attitude.
  • Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?: A minor Running Gag is her arachnophobia. George even uses a toy spider to chase her off when she starts pestering him and gives one for Ryu to use in Episode 25.

Teppei Kuze

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/teppei.jpg
Played by: Kenta Uchino
Medical student and monster maniac, Teppei is the team's tactician and can tell you everything about any kaiju that's appeared in a previous series on sight. Teppei is expected by his incredibly rich parents to inherit his father's hospital — a source of tension for him, GUYS, and his extremely worrying mother.
  • A Day in the Limelight: "One Path", "Lady of the Blue Flame", and "Mefilas' Game".
  • Adorkable: He pretty much geeks out every time a character or kaiju from a previous series appears.
  • Mission Control: Though he occasionally gets to come out with the rest of the team.
  • Non-Action Guy: Unlike the other male members of GUYS. Teppei is usually stationed at Phoenix Nest, where he communicates strategies and information to his comrades on the field.
  • The Smart Guy: Both the team's tactician and the one with most knowledge of kaiju.
  • The Strategist: He comes up with all sorts of odd but clever tactics to counter kaiju.

Konomi Amagai

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/konomi.png
Played by: Misato Hirata
Konomi is a timid, gentle, and hard-working lady who loves animals and children — fitting for a former preschool teacher. Despite her non-combative nature, she has formed a close bond with GUYS' Maquette Monster Miclas, thus making her the team's Maquette user when on the field.
  • A Day in the Limelight: Is the first member of GUYS to get one in the fourth episode, "Broken Bonds". She gets one in "Konomi's Treasure" and "Immortal Grozam".
  • Adorkable: She's a timid Meganekko who loves cute things, how could she not be?
  • Animal Motifs: Rabbits. Other characters have likened them with her timid personality and non-combative role. Helps that the preschool she worked at keeps a bunch of them as pets.
  • Badass Adorable: She has her moments, such as blowing off Kelbeam's horn in Episode 4 or piloting the Gun Phoenix against Grozam in Episode 46.
  • Fluffy Tamer: She has the job of managing the Maquette Monsters (mostly Miclas and Lim. Eleking; Windam is much less dependent on her). Miclas is especially dependent on her as it views her as a motherly figure, making her the only one who can command it effectively and give it the courage to fight.
  • Meganekko: She has tried not wearing her glasses, but always ends up going back to them in the end.
  • Mission Control: Alongside Teppei, unless GUYS needs to use Miclas.
  • Nice Girl: Easily the second kindest member of GUYS after Mirai.
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl: The Girly Girl to Marina's Tomboy.

Captain Shingo Sakomizu

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/sakomizu.jpg
Played by: Minoru Tanaka
The captain of GUYS, Sakomizu is an easygoing and wise leader who often drops advice for his subordinates.
  • A Day in the Limelight: "A Visit from an Old Friend".
  • A Father to His Men: Especially to Mirai, but he cares about the whole team in general.
  • The Captain: Of GUYS.
  • Catchphrase: He's always the one who gives the order "GUYS, Sally Go!", usually followed by the team answering with a "G.I.G!"
  • The Comically Serious: He has his moments.
  • Cool Old Guy: He's a friendly and laidback guy who acts as a sort of mentor for GUYS, and see Older Than They Look.
  • Embarrassing Nickname: His friends tend to give him these — Dr. Asami Fujisawa likes to call him "Sako-chan" and Supreme Chairman Takenaka called him "Sakkochi" in front of the team, to his embarrassment!
  • Mentor Archetype: He's the only one besides Ryu who wasn't part of GUYS prior to the series, so he helps the new members out a fair bit with understanding what it means to be a part of the team
  • Older Than They Look: It is revealed in "A Visit from an Old Friend" that he's actually over 70 despite looking to be in his 40s, due to the fact that he was originally a space patrol officer and the effects of light speed travel have slowed his aging.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: His laidback and easygoing attitude make him quite approachable for the rest of GUYS. He's also pretty competent when on the field.
  • Secret Keeper: Until Episode 29, he's the only person who knows that Mirai is Ultraman Mebius.
  • Tomato Surprise: He's the Chief Inspector of GUYS.
  • Trademark Favourite Food: Loves coffee.

Other GUYS members

Adjutant Toriyama

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/toriyama.png
Played by: Kenichi Ishii
The head of GUYS Japan, Toriyama is a cowardly, bumbling sycophant who isn't taken seriously by...pretty much everyone at GUYS.
  • A Day in the Limelight: "The First Errand" and "The Chief Inspector's Message".
  • The Alleged Boss: Despite heading GUYS Japan, no one really takes him seriously, except for perhaps Mirai. But then again, it's not like he deserves to be.
  • Buttmonkey: Due to his foolish schemes and general bumbling. He's been teleported to Antarctica, arrested by a police officer, had his pants pulled down in public, is constantly embarrassed by his attempts to appear superior to the rest of GUYS, and frequently gets scolded by his subordinates for his laziness and stupidity.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: As Maru explains in "The Chief Inspector's Message", Toriyama may be a stingy and cowardly oaf, but he cares a lot about GUYS and generally means well.
  • Pointy-Haired Boss: It's a good thing GUYS also has Captain Sakomizu and Yuki Misaki though.

Secretary Maru

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/maru_5.png
Played by: Yutaka Maido
Toriyama's Beleaguered Assistant.
  • Beleaguered Assistant: Due to the fact that Toriyama constantly drags him into his dumb schemes, which he is powerless to stop.
  • Buttmonkey: Not as much as Toriyama, though he still has his moments.
  • Hypercompetent Sidekick: He frequently has to correct Toriyama's statements and deflate his ego when necessary.

Deputy Chief Yuki Misaki

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/misaki_5.jpg
Played by: Saaya Ishikawa
Assistant and substitute of the enigmatic Chief Inspector.
  • A Day in the Limelight: "Soaring to Tomorrow".
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: In contrast to Toriyama. She basically acts as the Chief Inspector for GUYS since the real one is nowhere to be found.
  • Silk Hiding Steel: She's a pleasant and approachable figure, but certainly deserves the respect that GUYS gives her.
  • Sugar-and-Ice Personality: She usually keeps a professional and collected attitude, even more so than Sakomizu, but as her friend Dr. Asami Fujisawa explained, she also has a smile that can bring courage in even the gloomiest moments.

Kazuya Serizawa

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/serizawa_5.png
Played by: Shin Ishikawa
The original captain of GUYS, Serizawa taught Ryu all about being on a defense team, making him Ryu's mentor and hero. Serizawa is killed in GUYS' first monster battle, but his form is adopted by Hunter Knight Tsurugi.
  • The Captain: Before Sakomizu was put in the position, he led GUYS and trained them in hopes of creating a defense team that could protect Earth without Ultraman.
  • Mentor Archetype: Towards Ryu, in the same manner that Sakomizu is towards the rest of GUYS. Ryu also inherited a lot of his ideals as a result.
  • Posthumous Character: Although he dies at the beginning of the series, his character is highly important to both Ryu and Ultraman Hikari throughout the series.

Chief Mechanic Araiso

Played by: Katsuhiko Watabiki
The mind behind every fighter jet used by GUYS and the previous defense teams, Araiso is a stubborn and crabby fellow whose as passionate about his creations as he is about the lives of the many who have piloted them over the forty years of Ultraman history.
  • Berserk Button: Never insult any of the fighter jets he's worked on. He will fight you. Seriously, he will. When Ryu derided how the planes of previous series were useless due to how they always crashed unlike the Gun Phoenix, it took all of GUYS to stop the two from brawling each other.
  • Cool Old Guy: He's a pretty cranky dude, but you gotta give the guy who created every single fighter plane in the Showa Ultra series some credit — he's pretty dang genius.
  • The Engineer: Comes with being the creator of the fighter jets used by GUYS and all the defense teams before them.

Dr. Asami Fujisawa

Played by: Kei Ishibashi
A friend of Deputy Chief Misaki. Dr. Fujisawa is an utterly brilliant scientist, but also extremely eccentric and playful in attitude. She appears a few times in the series to assist GUYS against major villains.
  • Bunny-Ears Lawyer: She's described as one of the most renowned experts in the world and having earned her doctorate before she was 20, but you wouldn't know that from her quirky, oddball behavior.
  • Hot Scientist: Case in point — George instantly falls in love with her the moment they meet (to Marina's annoyance).

Supreme Chairman Takenaka

Played by: Kenji Sahara
The supreme leader of GUYS and a friend of Captain Sakomizu. He's normally stationed at GUYS' chief headquarters in New York, but he comes over to Japan in Episode 42, marking the beginning of the series finale.

    Maquette Monsters 

Data-based duplicates of kaiju created from METEOR (Much Extreme Technology of Extraterrestrial ORigin), a technology program that harnesses the technology from failed alien invasions. They are used to assist GUYS and Ultraman Mebius against kaiju, lasting only for one minute before vanishing to recharge.

As a whole:

  • Hour of Power: The monsters only last for one minute before vanishing. Justified as all METEOR technology is programmed to be active for only only minute in order to reduce the risks of using salvaged extraterrestrial technology.
  • Mons: Carried over from Ultraseven, but they're digital duplicates of the original monsters instead.
  • Undying Loyalty: They readily obey GUYS and help Ultraman Mebius battle enemies.

Miclas / Eleki-Miclas

First Appearance: Broken Bonds
The first monster selected as a Maquette Monster. Unfortunately, Miclas' natural cowardice proved to be problematic, as he requires an encouraging master to fight. Later on, Miclas would be upgraded with the electrical powers of Eleking, Neronga, and Eledortoise to create Eleki-Miclas, though he stilled retained his timid personality.
See Ultraseven
  • Cowardly Lion: Miclas is extremely lacking in confidence and needs encouragement to be able to face enemies. This would later become a major trait of future incarnations of Miclas, including the original Ultraseven one. Teppei justifies this, explaining that the original Miclas was much braver as Ultraseven was a strong and benevolent leader to it.
  • Invisibility: Thanks to Neronga and Eledortoise.
  • Shock and Awe: When upgraded to Eleki-Miclas, he gains the ability to channel lightning through his body and shoot it from his horns. Additionally, he's immune to electric attacks.
  • Spring Jump: Capable of this, but his landing skill is much less impressive.

Lim. Eleking

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/lim_eleking_render.png
First Appearance: Terrible Predator
A chibi Eleking that spawned from an error in the Maquette Monster creator when Miclas rejected a miniscule amount of Eleking's data during his upgrade to Eleki-Miclas and the system, unsure of what to do with, spawned an Eleking. Although it unnerved everyone (except Konomi) at first, GUYS decided to let it stay and play the role of mascot. The chibi monster also made a brief return in Ultra Galaxy Mega Monster Battle.
  • Cuteness Proximity: Konomi's heart melts at the sight of it when it first appears, although the rest of GUYS is freaked out by it. The scene is both hilarious and adorable.
  • Energy Absorption: Has a habit of eating the electricity around Phoenix Nest.
  • Fun Size: Comes in this size due to being created from a very tiny amount of Eleking data from the Maquette Monster creator.
  • Ridiculously Cute Critter: A playful, chibi version of one of the franchise's most popular Kaiju.
  • Shock and Awe: Like the normal Eleking, it can deliver powerful shocks when disturbed, as George learned the hard way.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": Sometimes called Rimu Eleking.
  • Super-Deformed: It's a chibi after all.
  • Team Pet: For GUYS.

Windam / Fire Windam

First Appearance: Mother's Miracle
The second Maquette Monster chosen by GUYS. Windam is less cowardly than Miclas and takes orders better, but is also rather mindless in comparison. Later on, GUYS downloaded the fire powers of Zetton, Pandon, and Black End, allowing GUYS to use the robot as Fire Windam when needed.
See Ultraseven
  • Playing with Fire: Fire Windam possesses the ability to shoot fireballs from the flamethrower on its left hand.
  • Right Hand of Doom: As Fire Windam, he possesses a flamethrower in place on his left hand. His head fin is also changed to a red colour.
  • Spring Jump: Can jump clean over the heads of other kaiju, a trait not seen in Ultraseven.
  • Took a Level in Badass: In Ultraseven, Windam was basically a 40 meter tall punching bag for the bad guys who could be fooled by simply running around it in circles! In Mebius, Windam is now capable of taking on other kaiju without breaking too much of a sweat, even without its Fire upgrade.

    Antagonists 

Bogal / Bogalmons

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/bogal_new_6.png
Click here  for Bogalmons
Click here  for her Lady in White form
First Appearance: Two From the Deep Sea
Voiced by: Moeko Koyama (also human form actor)
A terrible creature that has devoured life on countless worlds, Bogal came to Earth from the planet Aarb in the form of a Lady in White to call forth monsters that were dealt with by GUYS. Her presence remained unknown to the team until Tsurugi's arrival forced her to change tactics, and she began to consume the monsters she summoned in order to transform into a more horrid and powerful form called Bogalmons.
  • Achilles' Heel: Electricity. Unfortunately for GUYS, she loses this when she becomes Bogalmons.
  • Action Bomb: When Tsurugi arrives on Earth, Bogal starts consuming monsters to build enormous amounts of energy into her body and become one as Bogalmons.
  • Animal Motifs: Snakes. Her back mouth is meant to resemble a cobra's hood while her methods of consumption are similar to those of any snake.
  • Archenemy: To Hunter Knight Tsurugi, who protected Aarb one of the planets whose inhabitants she devoured.
  • Arc Villain: Of the first 10 episodes.
  • Big Eater: For Bogal, the kaiju are just appetizers. The main dish is the rest of Earth.
  • The Dreaded: Other kaiju are terrified of her, even when they see her human form
  • Early-Bird Cameo: Until Episode 6, she appears throughout the series in a human disguise.
  • Expy: Her design is actually based off some scrapped concept art for Orga from the Godzilla movies.
  • Food Chain of Evil: An intelligent kaiju that lives to consume other kaiju. There's a reason why Kelbeam fled in terror upon spotting her human form.
  • Hand Blast: Can shoot purple orbs of energy from her hands.
  • The Heavy: Although only appearing in the first 10 episodes, her presence is what kickstarts the plot.
  • Mind over Matter: Has shown telekinesis in both monster and human form.
  • More Teeth than the Osmond Family: Her mouth, which is disguised as her back!
  • Not Quite Dead: In Episode 8, Tsurugi and Mebius seemingly kill her, but then it turns out she simply fled with an illusion in her place.
  • Omnicidal Maniac: For Bogal, the universe is nothing more than her personal buffet.
  • One-Winged Angel: Bogalmons.
  • Overly Long Tongue: In her human form. She tends to lick her lips with it hungrily whenever the Monster of the Week appears.
  • Prehensile Tail: She uses it to to grab objects, including trying to snatch the C-PIN 929 (although Mebius was able to slice it off as a result) and even subduing Twin Tail to tak on Gudon when she interrupted their battle to eat them.
  • Shock and Awe: As Bogalmons, she can shoot beams of lightning from her back.
  • Snakes Are Sinister: Snakes are a large part of her design.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": Bogal or Bogar?
  • The Stoic: In human form.
  • Swallowed Whole: Her favoured form of finishing off other monsters.
  • Taking You with Me: What she intended to do with Tsurugi and Japan as Bogalmons. See Action Bomb above.
  • Villain Teleportation: In human form.
  • Villainous Glutton: A rare female example.
  • Voluntary Shapeshifting: Can turn into a Lady in White to go around unseen. Monsters will still recognize her presence though.

Zamusha

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/zamusha_new.png
First Appearance: The Swordsman from Space
Voiced by: Isamu Sugaya
The greatest swordsman in the universe, Zamusha had battled Hunter Knight Tsurugi many years ago and lost. He hitched a ride on the Oshima Comet, which was making a collision course with Earth, in order to avenge this defeat and once again prove himself to be the mightiest warrior in the cosmos — unaware that Tsurugi had given up his bloodthirsty ways to become a heroic protector.
  • Anti-Hero: Fills in the role left vacant by Tsurugi's redemption into Ultraman Hikari.
  • Arch-Enemy: Considers Tsurugi to be his.
  • Badass Normal: Despite having no powers, he was able to fight against the Ultramen and survive as well as take on some of the most powerful characters evenly.
  • Back for the Finale: Where he battles Empera alongside Hikari.
  • Bilingual Bonus: His name literally means "The Warrior" in Japanese.
  • Blood Knight: He fights for the sheer sake of it.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: Against almost anyone who battles him as Alien Valky and the two Alien Magmas found out.
  • Eyepatch of Power: His right eye.
  • Glory Seeker: He fights in order to prove himself as the most powerful warrior in the universe. However, he later realizes the true meaning of fighting is about protecting others.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: In the final battle against Empera, he saves GUYS from a potentially fatal attack.
  • Katanas Are Just Better: His Hoshikirimaru is capable of slicing the Mebium Blade in two, chopping up giant robots, and even slicing a comet into hundreds of shards of rock and ice.
  • Master Swordsman: He fancies himself the greatest swordsman in all of space, and has certainly lived up to it, having fought toe on toe with the likes of Hunter Knight Tsurugi and (according to Expanded Universe material) Emperor Galtan, Alien Tsuruk, and Alien Terrorist.
  • Named Weapons: His sword is called Hoshikirimaru, meaning "Star Slash Circle".
  • Noodle Incident: Exactly what went down in the battle between Zamusha and Tsurugi is never explained.
  • The Only One Allowed to Defeat You: His reason for coming to Earth is this to Tsurugi.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: Technically "red eye", but still.
  • Samurai: A space samurai!
  • The Worf Effect: Defeats three aliens all in short order without breaking a sweat and kills several Imperisers too. Becomes a victim of this when he battles Empera.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": Zamusha, Zamsher, Zamsha, Zamshar, etc.

Lesser Bogals

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/bogal_jr_new.png
First Appearance: A Call from Space
Bogal's human-sized children that continued to call monsters to Earth. Two opened up a gateway to the Monster Graveyard and encountered GUYS there when a distress call from the ship Arandas trapped in the Monster Graveyard came to the team's attention. Three more later appeared on Earth, where they attacked Mirai and attempted to pull Ryu into the Monster Graveyard.
  • Eye Beams: They shoot purple orbs of energy from their eyes.
  • Food Chain of Evil: Like their mother, they consume other monsters. However, since their too small to attack kaiju, they usually just scavenge from the corpses floating around the Monster Graveyard.
  • Hand Blast: They can spam dark blue bolts of energy from their claws.
  • Make My Monster Grow: They turn kaiju-sized through Monstrous Cannibalism, changing appearance if they eat at least two of their fallen kin.
  • Monstrous Cannibalism: They consume their own dead to grow in power and size much like how Bogal became Bogalmons.
  • More Teeth than the Osmond Family: The final Lesser Bogal.
  • One-Winged Angel: The last Lesser Bogal consumes its fallen comrades to gain a horrid visage reminiscent of a Venus Flytrap.
  • Overly Long Tongue: The last one of them uses this to snag Ryu's plane and try pull him into a portal to the Monster Graveyard.
  • Villainous Glutton: As ravenous as Bogal, but far more feral.

Yapool

First Appearance: Ultraman Mebius and the Ultra Brothers, The Resurrection of Yapool (in series)
Voiced by: Tessho Genda
One of Empera's generals, the 4 Heavenly Kings, Yapool attacked Earth with his Choju U-Killersaurus five years after Ultraman 80's departure, but was sealed under the sea off Kobe by Ultraman, Ultraseven, Ultraman Jack, and Ultraman Ace. He and his monster were resurrected by an alliance of evil aliens, and he escaped to his home dimension, where he would later resurrect some older Choju and team up with the rest of the 4 Heavenly Kings. He was the first of them to try and defeat Mebius by using more Choju and trapping the hero in his home dimension.
See Ultraman Ace
  • Demoted to Dragon: This time, he's just one of the 4 Heavenly Kings (except in The Movie, where he controls U-Killersaurus against Mebius and the Ultra Brothers).
  • Dragon Ascendant: He was apparently Empera's Dragon during the original war with the Ultras, but went on to become a Big Bad himself in until Empera returned.
  • The Dragon: Of the 4 Heavenly Kings towards Empera, being the emperor's most loyal servant and the most passionate enemy of the Ultramen out of the 4 Heavenly Kings.
  • The Man Behind the Man: He subtly swayed the minds of Aliens Zarab, Guts, Nackle, and Temperor to free him and U-Killersaurus from their underwater prison off Kobe.
  • Sealed Evil in a Can: In The Movie, due to the Ultra Brothers sealing him under the sea while he was in the body of U-Killersaurus.

Mitsuhiko Hirukawa

Played by: Kato Kosei
An unscrupulous journalist notorious for his tabloid style of writing and penchant for digging up or creating dirt around celebrities. Hirukawa particularly likes trying to ruin GUYS' reputation, having no respect for the team and their work.
  • Chekhov's Gunman: Originally appeared in Episode 28 "Konomi's Treasure" working with a childhood friend of Konomi to make a scandal around GUYS. Nobody ever expected his reappearance alongside that of Yapool and Aya Jinguji, or that he would reveal Mirai's secret identity to the rest of the world.
  • Jerkass: You might notice he's the only human character in the antagonists folder. That would be because he is quite easily the most despicable human character in the show, having zero redeeming qualities or any sense of morality.
  • Paparazzi: Though he's not a photographer, he certainly fits the mode, as he specializes in creating slanderous stories using superficial evidence.

Imperiser

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/inpelaizer_render.png
First Appearance: Day of Farewell
Empera's robotic soldiers. One was sent as a scout to devastate GUYS, Mebius, and even a visiting Ultraman Taro, forcing Mebius to gain his Burning Brave Mode. Later, thirteen Mass-Produced Imperisers were placed across the globe by Empera to threaten humanity and fight Mebius. Mebius would later encounter the original one when it was resurrected in the Monster Graveyard, but Mecha-Zam slew it.

The Imperisers have also appeared a few more times in other Ultra Series.


  • Back from the Dead: The first one returns from the Monster Graveyard in Ghost Rebirth.
  • Blade Below the Shoulder: If Imperiser's arms get blown off, it simply regenerates them into a sword.
  • Boss in Mook's Clothing: Despite being Empera's footsoldiers, a single one was virtually unkillable by even the experienced Ultraman Taro.
  • Conservation of Ninjutsu: A single Imperiser? Decimates GUYS and two Ultramen. A whole army of Mass-Produced Imperisers? Each one dies in one hit.
  • From a Single Cell: Despite being a robot, it can do this due to its highly advanced self-repair system. The only way to destroy one permanently is to destroy that
  • Humongous Mecha: Used by Empera as his army's scouts and cannon fodder.
  • Hydra Problem: The Mass-Produced Imperisers used this by teleporting in every time Mebius killed one.
  • The Juggernaut: Not even Taro's Ultra Dynamite could kill even one these guys, as when Taro blew the top half off, its legs still survived and teleported away!
  • Knight of Cerebus: As the monster of the Wham Episode as well as the most powerful Mebius has faced yet, definitely.
  • Mecha-Mooks: Of Empera's armies.
  • More Dakka: Their combat tactics are to simply spam lasers and energy orbs from the cannons mounted on their "head" and shoulders.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": Imperiser, Imperializer, Imperizer, Inpelaizer... Nobody's too sure.
  • Spin Attack: Has a 360-degree waist that allows it to simply spin around while shooting for maximum destruction.
  • Teleport Spam: Displayed by the Mass-Produced Imperisers, but even the original could teleport to evade GUYS.
  • This Is a Drill: The Mass-Produced Imperisers created these instead of the standard Blade Below the Shoulder.
  • The Worf Effect: On Ultraman Taro.

Alien Deathre Deathrem

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/deathrem_new.png
First Appearance: Threat of Mebius Killer
Voiced by: Daisuke Gori
The second of the 4 Heavenly Kings. Deathrem plotted to destroy the trust that humans had in Ultramen by trapping GUYS in a containment field and telling Earth that GUYS would only be freed if he was allowed to defeat Mebius. He then returned when the 4 Heavenly Kings were resurrected in the Monster Graveyard.

Other members of Deathrem's species have appeared in the Ultra Series since.


  • A Lizard Named "Liz": Justified as he was the only member of his species known until much later.
  • Back from the Dead: In Ghost Rebirth.
  • Body Horror: His design is meant to look like he's been turned inside-out.
  • Cyclops: Has a single yellow eye.
  • The Dark Chick: Of the 4 Heavenly Kings, being the most manipulative of the bunch and able to turn humanity against Ultraman Mebius and GUYS.
  • Dem Bones: He looks like he’s decorated with bones.
  • Evil Sounds Deep: Has the deepest voice of the 4 Heavenly Kings, due to being voiced by Daisuke Gori.
  • Manipulative Bastard: His eponymous plan was to imprison GUYS in a containment field and decree that he must destroy Ultraman Mebius if GUYS is to be freed, leaving Mirai in a crisis about whether it was more important to save his friends or the civilian populace, who were angry at the indecisiveness of GUYS.
  • Names to Run Away from Really Fast: Deathrem.
  • Playing with Fire: The Deathrem Inferno, which is his ability to open portals that shoot out homing fireballs at targets.
  • Right Hand of Doom: His left hand is equipped with massive claws.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": Also known as Desrem.

Alien Groza Grozam

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/grozam_new.png
First Appearance: Threat of Mebius Killer
Voiced by: Hisao Egawa
The third Heavenly King, Grozam's plan was to simply challenge Mebius in battle. He easily defeated the hero with his freezing breath, leaving GUYS to figure out how to get past his unmeltable ice and nigh-immortal form. Grozam later returned when the 4 Heavenly Kings were reborn in the Monster Graveyard.

Other members of Grozam's species have appeared in the other entries of the Ultra Series.


  • A Lizard Named "Liz": Justified as his species wasn't established until much later.
  • An Ice Person: Not only is he able to breath blasts of freezing air, but he's also completely made out of ice.
  • Back from the Dead: In Ghost Rebirth.
  • Blade Below the Shoulder: His weapons of choice.
  • Breath Weapon: Breathes an icy mist so powerful that it could freeze fire.
  • The Brute: Of the 4 Heavenly Kings, as his evil plan is simply to pummel Mebius and let humanity despair at the defeat of their hero, without considering that GUYS would try to do something about it.
  • Cyclops: A single blue eye.
  • From a Single Cell: Being blown to bits doesn't stop him from regenerating either.
  • Healing Factor: He even regenerated from being sliced in two by Ultraseven!
  • Horned Humanoid: Two downward-curving horns on his head.
  • Mythology Gag: His imprisonment of Mebius is an intentional parallel to Ultraseven's crucifixion at the hands of Alien Guts.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": Also called Glozam due to "L-R" confusion in the Japanese language.
  • Weaksauce Weakness: Defeated by using superheated air to completely melt him into nothingness.

Alien Mefilas

First Appearance: Threat of Mebius Killer
Voiced by: Seizo Kato
The last of the 4 Heavenly Kings, Alien Mefilas planned to defeat Mebius in the most humiliating way possible — altering the minds of everyone on Earth so they would view Mefilas as a hero and Mebius as a villain, turning even Mirai's friends against him. Mefilas would later return when the 4 Heavenly Kings were resurrected, though inexplicably as Armoured Mefilas.
See Ultraman
  • Back from the Dead: In Ghost Rebirth, albeit now wearing a suit of armour.
  • The Evil Genius: Of the 4 Heavenly Kings towards Empera, for he's the most intelligent of the group and uses advanced technology to brainwash the world into seeing Mebius as an evil alien and him as the protector of Earth.
  • Genre Savvy: When Grozam gloats about GUYS is helpless to rescue Mebius and defeat him, Mefilas is quick to point out that he should not be underestimating the humans as they have saved the Ultras and defeated monsters by themselves many times before. He was correct.
    • Mefilas also wasn't kidding when he said he would kill Mirai in a manner that would leave him in utter despair. In a series themed around friendship, there's truly no worse way for a villain to kill the hero than by turning friends against them. Of course, Mefilas is eventually foiled by his underestimation of the strength of GUYS' bonds.
  • Mind over Matter: In this series, Mefilas has telekinetic abilities, which he uses to redirect beam attacks or guide his own energy attacks.
  • Mythology Gag: His We Will Meet Again statement to Mebius and Ultraman, as well as his admittance to defeat, are what the original Mefilas told Ultraman. They even vanish in the same manner.
    • Additionally, a brief bit of Mefilas firing one of his Hand Blasts at Ultraman's chest to no avail is a near-perfect shot of when the monster Neronga did something similar to Ultraman as well.
  • You Have Failed Me: His fate.

Alien Empera

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/emperor_new.png
First Appearance: Mefilas' Game
Voiced by: Kenji Utsumi
The Lord of Darkness, Empera was defeated thousands of years ago when he conquered the Land of Light only for the Ultras to fight back and defeat the Emperor. However he would return, as made clear in Mebius' battles against the first Imperiser and the 4 Heavenly Kings. Upon arrival, Empera decreed that humanity must submit to him by banishing Mebius, encased the sun in solid darkness, sent out Mass-Produced Imperisers, and personally ravaged Tokyo — putting Mebius, GUYS, and all their allies up against the greatest threat the world had seen.
  • Achilles' Heel: He has a few wounds of light near his waist left from his battle with the Father of Ultra. By exploiting these wounds, Ultraman Hikari is able to injure him and Mebius in Phoenix Mode is able to destroy him by completely opening them up in the final battle.
  • Arch-Enemy: Of the Father of Ultra, who fought him one on one in the Land of Light thirty thousand years ago in a duel that ended in a draw.
  • Badass Cape: It can actually act as a force field.
  • Big Bad: One of the Biggest Bads in the Ultra Series, and can be considered the Big Bad of not just Ultraman Mebius, but the classic Showa continuity in general (at least until Ultraman Belial was introduced).
  • Casting a Shadow: Has numerous shadow-themed powers
  • Dark Is Evil: Has a dark color scheme and yes, he is evil. His goal is to destroy light and spread darkness throughout the galaxy.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: Is actually first seen in Ultraman Taro in a flashback, and was actually supposed to be the villain of Alien Temperor's 2-part debut.
  • The Emperor: Obviously.
  • Evil Overlord: Leads an army of monsters and seeks to conquer the galaxy and enshroud it in darkness.
  • Finishing Move: The Rezolium Ray, his answer to the Ultras' beams and what he uses to kill Ultraman Mebius.
  • Galactic Conqueror: His goal isn't just to conquer the galaxy, but to purge all light from it as well.
  • Healing Magic Is the Hardest: While immensely powerful, it took him 30,000 years to recover from the war enough to make a second attempt, while the Father of Ultra received an identical wound and didn't take nearly as long. Any attempt to actually revive him is also shown to be far more difficult than is typical in this universe.
  • The Juggernaut: He was able to block swords with his bare hands and caused explosions all over Tokyo by simply landing in the middle of the city.
  • Last of His Kind: According to some sources, he was the last of a race of aliens who were killed off when their planet's sun went died. How did he survive? By embracing the power of darkness, of course!
  • The Man Behind the Man: Implied to have manipulated the events of the series (and to a lesser extent, every monster and alien attack in the previous series, considering the Space-Time Emitter) to ensure his arrival.
  • Mind over Matter: Has immense psychic power, with his favorite being telekinesis, which he uses to stop even a single hit from landing on him.
  • Playing with Fire: Can conjure deep red fireballs as projectiles.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": His name has been translated as both "Alien Empera" and "Alien Emperor", though the former is the spelling most commonly used.

    Regular Monsters and Aliens 

Dinozaur

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/dinozuar.png
First Appearance: A Fateful Encounter
The first monster to appear on Earth since Margodon was defeated 25 years ago, the extraterrestrial, razor-tongued Dinozaur is Ultraman Mebius and GUYS' first opponent summoned to Earth by Bogal. Several more appear in the early part of the series, but are dispatched by the heroes before they cause any trouble.
  • Bilingual Bonus: Dinozaur's name is the Polish word for "dinosaur".
  • Bizarre Alien Biology: It uses its razor tongue to snatch particles floating about in the depths of space. Weirder still, blowing off its head will result in a Dinozaur Reverse!
  • Early-Bird Cameo: A small clay model of Dinozaur appears in Episode 22 of Ultraman Max. See here.
  • Everything's Better with Dinosaurs: Space dinosaurs!
  • Expy: Its design is based on Sandros, Big Bad of Ultraman Cosmos 2: The Blue Planet, as well as early concept art for Orga from Godzilla 2000.
  • Multiple-Tailed Beast: Two tails. They carry large nerve clusters within them, so they effectively act like secondary brains.
  • Overly Long Tongue: Extremely thin and razor sharp. Capable of slicing a skyscraper in half.
  • Shoulder Cannon: Fires hailstorms of laser bolts from its shoulders.
  • Starter Villain: For Ultraman Mebius, serving as an excellent demonstration of his inexperience.
  • The Worf Effect: Used with GUYS. A single one totally decimates the original GUYS in Episode 1, but in Episode 11, GUYS destroy an entire herd of the monsters and manages to blow the survivor's head off.
  • Your Head Asplode: The surviving Dinozaur in Episode 11 is defeated this way, allowing it to become Dinozaur Reverse.

Gudon

First Appearance: Our Wings
The second monster summoned by Bogal, appearing at the outskirts of Tokyo while GUYS still needed new recruits after their disastrous first fight with Dinozaur. A second individual later appeared fighting Twin Tail, but had its battle interrupted when Bogal came to eat the two.
See Return of Ultraman
  • Curbstomp Battle: On the receiving end twice. First by Bogal in Episode 9, and then by Zetton in Episode 27.
  • Mons: In Episode 27, Teppei uses a Maquette version of Gudon as a test monster against the Maquette Zetton.
  • Mythology Gag: Seen battling Twin Tail again in its reappearance.
    • Also the first one emerges near a construction site at sundown, mirroring what happened in the original Gudon's battles with Ultraman Jack.
  • Starter Villain: GUYS' very first enemy after the original team (except Ryu, of course) was all killed by Dinozaur.

Birdon

First Appearance: Only One Life
The third monster summoned by Bogal, appearing out of Mt. Okutama where it was able to incapacitate Mebius with its powerful poisons and leave GUYS fretting about how to defeat a monster infamous for killing two Ultra heroes in the past.
See Ultraman Taro
  • Achilles' Heel: As dangerous as it is, if a vein in its poison sacks is damaged, the poison floods its system and leaves it vulnerable.
  • Continuity Nod: It reappears where the original in Ultraman Taro did, at Mt. Okutama. A few have theorized that it's supposed to be the original Birdon too, since Taro only managed to seal the monster back inside the volcano at the end of the three-parter.
  • The Dreaded: Managing to kill two Ultras in the past tends to make you this. Everyone has an Oh, Crap! when it shows up, because the past event is still remembered. It manages to give Mebius a Curbstomp Battle in their first fight and injures him so badly he's still weakened in their rematch.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: Its defeat comes from having the sacks holding the venom damaged in such a way that it's flooded with its own venom.
  • Poisonous Person: Whereas the original Birdon simply had a very sharp beak, this incarnation (and all subsequent ones) has a venomous beak.

Kelbeam

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/cherubim.png
First Appearance: Broken Bonds
A vicious alien monster called to Earth by Bogal while GUYS was testing their new Maquette Monster Miclas, who although too cowardly to face Kelbeam was also their only hope against its arsenal of weapons. A second one later appeared working in unison with an Earthtron it mind controlled by manipulating GUYS' new monster-commanding radiowaves, and a third one then appeared when Armoured Darkness made a beeline for Earth, but was dispatched by Miclas.

Kelbeam proved to be a fairly popular kaiju and has since made appearances in other Ultra Series.


  • Beware My Stinger Tail: A spiked club perfect for bashing Ultramen or other monsters.
  • Breath Weapon: A rapid stream of fireballs.
  • Everything's Better with Dinosaurs: Extraterrestrial, club-tailed ones.
  • Expressive Ears: Has two ears that flash up whenever he breathes his fireballs. They also catch radio waves to manipulate them.
  • Female Monster Surprise: Apparently, the first Kelbeam laid an egg while hiding in the sea that became the second Kelbeam!
  • Half the Man He Used to Be: The first one's fate.
  • Horn Attack: In point-blank combat, Kelbeam can use its horn to smack enemies.
  • Jerkass: Best shown in Episode 20 when he mind controls Earthtron and proceeds to bully the lesser monster into fighting Mebius for him. When he loses control over Earthtron, prompting the former servant to leave, he steps on Earthtron's tail!
  • Kick the Dog: A lot.
    • Brutally beats up the timid Miclas.
    • Mind controls and bullies Earthtron.
    • Taken almost literally when he nearly kills Takato's dog in a flashback in Ultraman Mebius & the Ultra Brothers, destroying the boy's self-confidence and his faith in Ultraman.
  • Screw This, I'm Out of Here!: Why the first one leaves during the first fight with Mebius. When Kelbeam catches sight of Bogal in her human form, it is scared to death and runs away in terror.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": Kelbeam or Cherubim?
  • Spin Attack: Kelbeam can levitate himself and spin rapidly like a tornado, smashing everything in its vicinity with its tail.
  • Villain Team-Up: With Earthtron in Episode 20, not that Earthtron wanted to.
  • Wolverine Claws: Long nasty claws for slashing his enemies.

Sadorah

First Appearance: Reverse Shot
Several of these monsters were summoned by the Lady in White to be consumed by after she learned Hunter Knight Tsurugi was coming to Earth. They hid in the Japanese mountains striking at victims with their extending claws from the mists they created.
See Return of Ultraman
  • Dirty Coward: They rely on creating fog to cloak themselves while striking from behind with their pincers. Even during the battle with Mebius, the Sadorahs are content to let one of their kind fight Mebius until he is killed, which is when the rest strike.
  • Extendable Arms: A trait of Sadorah new to this series that ended up becoming one of its primary abilities in all subsequent appearances.
  • Mythology Gag: The fog-making powers for Sadorah are derived from the excessive amounts of mist in the mountains where the original lived.
  • Ominous Fog: From this series onwards, Sadorah has the ability to create these.
  • Zerg Rush: A new trait in Sadorah that would become one of its defining traits in Ultra Galaxy Mega Monster Battle.

Twin Tail

First Appearance: Two From the Deep Sea
The final monster to be awoken by Bogal, this time at the bottom of the ocean in a massive egg she was incubating in order to lure GUYS to the bottom of the sea and be destroyed. A second one later appeared alongside a second Gudon it was battling, only to be devoured by Bogal when she showed up.
See Return of Ultraman
  • Art Evolution: Twin Tail's glowing spots are changed from green to blue in this series onwards.
  • Home Field Advantage: Twin Tail is not an extremely powerful kaiju on land, but when Mebius fights it underwater, he's quickly overwhelmed by the monster's increased agility and speed in its natural environment.
  • Mythology Gag: Seen battling Gudon again when they two return in Episode 9.
  • Sea Monster: Revealed to be one in this series. Also displays a change in body shape, switching from the iconic "upside-down" position to a flattened form like a horseshoe crab in order to swim.

Alien Fanton

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/alien_fanton_3.png
First Appearance: Fanton's Lost Item
Voiced by: Yasuhiko Kawazu
A race of gluttonous but friendly aliens who solved their homeworld's food shortage problems with the marvelous C-PIN 929, a ball-sized foodstuff that could grow based on the amount of oxygen on a planet. However, Bogal attacked the ship delivering it to consume the C-PIN 929 for herself. The item fell on Earth in its capsule, so they requested GUYS to assist them GUYS in finding it before Bogal could.

The Fanton aliens have made a few more appearances in the Ultra Series since, with the most prominent being Dr. Gourman from Ultraman X, the chief scientist of the series' defense team Xio and one of the show's main characters.


  • Amusing Alien: The Fanton sent to speak to GUYS proceeds to drive Toriyama and Maru nuts with his demands for food while staying at Phoenix Nest.
  • Animal Motifs: Snails as seen in their eyestalks and the spiraled shoulders.
  • Back for the Finale: Though unlike Kako and Zamusha, he doesn't help to battle Empera.
  • Big Eater: The Fanton representative eats an entire month's worth of food in a single sitting, and according to Dr. Gourman, his species eats 13 meals a day!
  • Obsessed with Food: Their culture takes mealtime very seriously, with the Fanton we see performing elaborate ceremonies and ritual dances upon receiving his meal from GUYS.
  • Punny Name: Befitting for a species of alien whose culture revolves almost entirely around eating, their name is derived from the Chinese insult "Fan Tong", which is used for people who only think about food.

Dinozaur Reverse

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/dinozuar_reverse.png
First Appearance: Mother's Miracle
When Ryu blew the head off the second Dinozaur encountered by GUYS, the corpse underwent a bizarre transformation and became a more powerful, two-headed form dubbed Dinozaur Reverse — requiring GUYS to get a new Maquette Monster in the form of Windam and Mebius to get help from a reformed Hunter Knight Tsurugi, or Ultraman Hikari.

Kodaigon Jiaza

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/kodaigon_the_other.png
First Appearance: The First Errand
Voiced by: Keiichi Nanba
A statue of the god Ebisu carrying a fish that was brought to life by a canister of Grotescell lost by Adjutant Toriyama when he was assigned to get rid of the stuff after some failed experiments by GUYS to use the alien substance for good.
  • Achilles' Heel: The statuette had a crack in its legs that allowed Mebius and Hikari to destroy the Grotescell within by firing their beams into it.
  • Beware the Silly Ones: A giant giggling statue of a little old fisherman that proved to be a surprisingly formidable opponent.
  • Breath Weapon: The fish breathes fire.
  • Continuity Nod: To the original Kodaigon from Return of Ultraman, right down to being brought to life by the same substance used by Alien Grotes.
  • Flying Seafood Special: The fish is also able to fly.
  • Golem: Essentially.
  • The Juggernaut: The crack in its legs was the only part of its body that GUYS and the Ultras' attacks could show some affect on.
  • Improbable Weapon User: Being a statuette of the Japanese patron of fishermen, it uses a fishing rod in combat.
  • Madness Mantra: The fish constantly shouts "Wealth and Good Fortune!"

Mukadender

First Appearance: Marina of the Wind
A monster that made itself at home in the Japanese wilds, eating any creature that entered its territory — and it happened to be that Marina and some friends were meeting together in the forest where it lived. Another Mukadender appeared when Armoured Darkness came to Earth, but GUYS quickly destroyed it.
See Ultraman Taro
  • Not Quite Dead: Mebius blows up Mukadender with a well-placed Mebium Beam, only for the separated head to lunge out of the smoke while his back is turned. Fortunately, Hikari shows up to destroy it at the last minute.
  • Super-Persistent Predator: Mukadender nearly spends the entire episode chasing after Marina and her friends, even waiting for them to come back out when they hide inside a cave.

Insectas

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/insectas_male_new.jpg
The male Insectas
First Appearance: One Path
Two insect-like monsters, with the male being the female's spawn. GUYS easily destroyed the female shortly after encountering it, but the male larva managed to crawl into Toriyama's ears where it drove him mad until it switched hosts to Teppei's mother and accompanied her to her husband's hospital, where it quickly completed its growth and battled Ultraman Mebius.
  • Achilles' Heel: The monsters' weak points are their mouths, which shooting at also helps to disable their ability to command lesser insects.
  • Big Creepy-Crawlies: Gigantic beetles with the features of the stag and rhino beetle.
  • Female Monster Surprise: For GUYS when they find out why Toriyama had gone nuts. The baby Insectas is an unpleasant surprise after they learn the gender of the Insectas they had first encountered.
  • Gigantic Adults, Tiny Babies: The larva was small enough to fit inside a human ear and the adult male it grows into is 45 meters tall. The growth happens within a matter of hours too once the larva had enough of living in a human ear.
  • Pest Controller: Both sexes can summon swarms of insects to harass their enemies by calling at a certain frequency.
  • Shock and Awe: Both sexes can shoot lightning bolts from their horns.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": Insectas or Insectus?

Gromite

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/gromite_2.png
First Appearance: Phoenix Stronghold
A meteor-like monster from outer space that consumes rock to regenerate itself, requiring GUYS to find a way to penetrate its stony skin with their aircraft. Gromite later returned when Alien Mefilas modified everyone's memories to make them believe that he was the protector of Earth. He summoned a Gromite and assisted GUYS, destroying the monster. Gromite also appeared in Ultra Galaxy Mega Monster Battle.
  • Achilles' Heel: There's a tiny opening in its neck that reveals the fleshy insides. Harming this area will cause Gromite great pain, but the monster only exposes it when it lowers it head down to feed.
  • Breath Weapon: Dark red fireballs.
  • Eat Dirt, Cheap: Rock, dirt, rubble, anything like that.
  • Healing Factor: Consuming rock gives it this ability, allowing it to strengthen its armour and heal injuries.
  • Mythology Gag: His design is based on a scrapped Ultraman Nexus monster, yet he was also made using the suit of the Nexus monster Golgolem (with the modified head of Ultraman Max's Grangon).
  • Rock Monster: Weird example. It's more akin to a mass of internal organs that can gather mineral matter to give itself the rocky body it needs to survive.
  • Throat Light: When it consumes rock, a light glows in its throat, allowing it to levitate rock into its mouth.

Alien Magma

First Appearance: The Swordsman from Space
Voiced by: Tetsu Inada (both)
A pair of Magma brothers headed for Earth by riding on the Oshima Comet. The duo hoped to take advantage of the resulting chaos from the collision with Earth and conquer it. They did not expect Zamusha to be on the same comet though and decided to kill him. It was something they never lived to regret as both aliens were sliced in two with the comet by Zamusha's sword.
See Ultraman Leo
  • Art Evolution: Whereas the first brother closely resembles the original Magma, with red hair and blue eyes, the second possesses white hair and red eyes.
  • Avenging the Villain: They intended to complete the original Magma's conquest of Earth.
  • Bullying a Dragon: Considering the fate of almost any warrior who tries to duel Zamusha, the two Magmas really should not have made their unprovoked attack on him.
  • Half the Man He Used to Be: The fate of the second Magma (which also causes the Oshima Comet to split in two).
  • Long-Lost Relative: The Magmas claim to be related to the one from Ultraman Leo.

Alien Valky

First Appearance: The Swordsman from Space
Voiced by: Makoto Kamiya
Watching Zamusha battle the two Magmas on the Oshima Comet in secrecy, Alien Valky wished to become known as the greatest warrior in the universe by defeating Zamusha. When the comet and the Magmas were destroyed, Valky stepped out to challenge the samurai. Fighting near GUYS' headquarters, Phoenix Nest, Valky soon met his end at the end of Zamusha's sword like all before him.
See Ultraman Taro

Salamandoras

First Appearance: Formation of Our Vows
Appearing suddenly from space, GUYS was more troubled with Salamandoras than UGM was due to its potent regeneration powers. Another one appeared as part of the prelude to Armoured Darkness' arrival to Earth, but GUYS destroyed it easily.
See Ultraman 80
  • Achilles' Heel: Has a regeneration organ in its throat that it hurt, will prevent the monster from reforming. In its original appearance, this was merely just a very sensitive body part with no other significance.
  • Continuity Nod: GUYS applies the same tactics UGM used to destroy the original.
  • From a Single Cell: In its original appearance, it had to be resurrected by the Alien Gorgon. Here, Salamandoras is capable of regenerating by itself.

Bemstar

First Appearance: Pressure on Ultraman
Two Bemstars appear in this series, both following the trail of the Oshima Comet. One was encountered by Ultraman Hikari and defeated by him, while Zoffy convinced him to spare the other Bemstar as a test for Mebius. Sure enough, the monster would trouble Mebius greatly, as he felt very vulnerable against the infamous monster. Fortunately, he would also earn Brave Mode in the battle against it.
See Return of Ultraman
  • The Dreaded: Mirai was pretty worried about having to face this guy, as he had heard about how the original monster was so tough that Ultraseven had to show up and help Jack defeat it — and Hikari has just left Earth.
  • Evil Laugh: Makes the kaiju version of one when it attempts to eat Marina in her plane, Mebius' arm, and Hikari's fist.
  • Mythology Gag: A lot of elements of Bemstar's appearance in the episode are borrowed from its debut episode in Return of Ultraman, "Ultraseven Arrives". Coincidentally, they're both the 18th episodes of their respective series.
  • Playing with Fire: In this series, Bemstar is able to create a pulse of extreme heat from its Belly Mouth in order to vaporize anything that clogs it.
  • There Is Another: The Bemstar that Mebius fights is actually one that Hikari and Zoffy had sighted in space after Hikari succeeded in defeating another one.

Daigarugu

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/daigarugu_i.png
First Appearance: The Lonely Grandstander

  • Big Creepy-Crawlies: Resembles a giant bipedal rhinoceros beetle.
  • Breath Weapon: Energy bombs.
  • Came from the Sky: Daigarugu first appears as orb of energy hurtling through space before it crashes on Earth.
  • Doppelgänger Attack: Daigarugu creates two perfect copies of itself, splitting into three identical monsters with a third of the power of the full creature. This also means the only way to harm Daigarugu is to somehow hit all three monsters at once with a single attack.
  • Horn Attack: Can shoot energy bolts from its horn.

Earthtron

First Appearance: The Chief Inspector's Message
A monster that unexpectedly appeared while GUYS was testing a new device that allowed them to command monsters with radio waves. The creature had been mind controlled by the second Kelbeam, who was manipulating the device's radio waves to boss Earthtron around.
See Return of Ultraman
  • Buttmonkey: Due to being constantly bossed around by Kelbeam (who decides to let Earthtron do all the fighting for him), which makes for some funny communication scenes between the two that intentionally parallel Adjutant Toriyama and Maru.
  • Non-Malicious Monster: Earthtron was only attacking because of Kelbeam's mind control. After GUYS manages to end Kelbeam's control over Earthtron, the latter monster attempts to leave, only for Kelbeam to attack him and the enraged Earthtron goes back into the fight, forcing Mebius to kill both of them.

Chronorm

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/chronorm_1.jpg
First Appearance: The Ocean Waves of Time
A nudibranch-like beast that travels across the universe in search of memories to consume. It warps people to the exact time and place of the memory it wishes to eat and then kills their past self, erasing the victim from existence. When it arrived on Earth, it targeted Marina's summer childhood, warping her, Torii, and Mirai into the past.
  • Achilles' Heel: Destroying Chronorm's eyestalks nullifies its time-warping powers.
  • Arch-Enemy: To Torii for destroying his people.
  • Brown Note: Its warping abilities make the sound of ocean waves, which is what warps victims (or anybody else unlucky enough to hear them) through time.
  • Combat Tentacles: Can sprout two from its front which it uses to fight Mebius.
  • Eldritch Abomination: Giant monster that consumes memories, warping victims to the time and location of the memory to eat their past self yet...
  • Eye Beams: Chronorm can charge up a red orb of energy from its eyes to be launched at foes.
  • Eye Scream: Marina blows out the monster's eyestalks as they're the source of its warping powers.
  • Invisibility: Can spray a white mist to turn itself invisible.
  • Shock and Awe: Its tentacles can generate powerful electric shocks.
  • Time Master: Combined with the ability to consume memories.
  • Would Hurt a Child: Chronorm's goal in the episode was to kill the child Marina.

Alien Angel Torii

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/angel_seijin.jpg
First Appearance: The Ocean Waves of Time
Played by: Ryuichi Ohura
The last of the aliens of Planet Angel. All of Torii's kind had been devoured by Chronorm and he escaped to Earth disguising himself as a human. There, he soon learned that Chronorm had come to Earth and hired Marina to assist him in subduing the monster.
  • Animal Motifs: Birds, specifically albino peacocks.
  • Bilingual Bonus: Torii's name is Japanese for "Bird".
  • Bird People: His species.

  • Heroic Sacrifice: Torii performs one to save Marina from Chronorm when she gets distracted by her past self's injuries.
  • Last of His Kind: Chronorm ate most of them. The few others that escaped died on the journey to a new home.
  • Nice Guy: Torii was gentle, very friendly, and very sincere to others.
  • Our Angels Are Different: A race of graceful bird-like aliens all wiped out by a giant space slug.
  • Winged Humanoid: Of course.

Vakishim

First Appearance: The Resurrection of Yapool
The first Choju brought back by Yapool when he returned after the events of The Movie. The evil entity used it to capture Ryu and possess him in order to torment Mirai, later siccing the Choju on Phoenix Nest when the Yapool-possessed Ryu sabotaged GUYS.
See Ultraman Ace
  • Mythology Gag: Yapool possesses Vakishim to battle an Ultraman...again.
  • Tractor Beam: In this series, Vakishim possesses one in its eyes that allows it to capture humans and bring them into Yapool's dimension for him to use.

Doragory

First Appearance: Program of the Poisonous Moth
The second Choju resurrected by Yapool. This Doragory is the original one, so it still remembers its original purpose (prevent a missile from destroying a comet about to hit Earth). It possessed Dr. Fujisawa in order to fulfill this mission, believing her work on developing the Dimensonal Dissolver for GUYS was going to be used to stop it.
See Ultraman Ace

Velokron

First Appearance: Soaring to Tomorrow
The third Choju to be brought back by Yapool. Velokron was sent out to injure Captain Sakomizu and prevent GUYS from successfully utilizing their Dimensional Dissolver to seal off Yapool's Dimension from theirs for the prevention of further Choju attacks.
See Ultraman Ace

Maquette Zetton

First Appearance: Champion of Fierce Fighting
GUYS' choice for a third Maquette Monster, which quickly went rogue due to its capsule being accidentally damaged by Toriyama. Due to the Maquette battle testing zone being inside a computer, the rogue Zetton threatened to destroy GUYS' software in its rampage.
See Ultraman
  • A.I. Is a Crapshoot: The Maquette Monster went rogue as Toriyama had damaged its capsule, meaning GUYS could no longer control such a powerful monster anymore.
  • The Dreaded: Mirai is pretty nervous about having to battle Zetton, even if it's just a Maquette version, due to how infamously powerful the monster is.
  • Mons: A rogue one in this case.
  • Mythology Gag: Maquette Zetton defeats a Maquette version of Mebius in the exact same way the original Zetton killed the original Ultraman. They even parody Ultraman's death scene when Maquette Mebius collapses.
  • Shout-Out: The concept of a digital monster that the hero has to battle in the virtual world isn't new for Tsuburaya Productions, as those who have seen Denkou Choujin Gridman will tell you.

Nova

First Appearance: Konomi's Treasure
A Flying Saucer Beast that somehow snuck into Phoenix Nest unseen and began to siphon Maquette energy, creating a miniature Maquette version of itself that began haunting GUYS' base in a scheme to eventually make a full-sized replica as a red herring.
See Ultraman Leo
  • Our Ghosts Are Different: The Maquette Nova begins as a ghost-like entity haunting the Phoenix Nest, spreading rumours of a spectre in the base.
  • Mons: Nova creates a Maquette version of itself by stealing the energy that creates Lim. Eleking.
  • Red Herring: The Maquette Nova it created was intended to distract GUYS and waste Mebius' colour timer energy while the real deal attacked Phoenix Nest.

Roberuga

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/roberuga_2.png
First Appearance: The Hopes of Comrades
Voiced by: Hisao Egawa
A Flying Saucer Beast formed by Empera from the remains of the Black Star. Roberuga was sent to kill Mebius shortly after his exhaustive battle against the first Imperiser. A second Roberuga later came to Earth, only to be defeated in the South Pacific by Mebius and Ultraman 80. A third then appeared with the arrival of Armoured Darkness, but Fire Windam eliminated the monster.
  • Art Evolution: The second Roberuga is yellow instead of red.
  • Continuity Nod: The Black Star from which its remains were made from was the planet that the Flying Saucer Beasts of Ultraman Leo came from, which also makes Roberuga the only one of the Living Saucers to have never been under the control of Commander Black.
  • Cyber Cyclops: Essentially, though it's not clear how much of Roberuga is robotic.
  • Eye Beams: Shoots purple energy bolts from its eye.
  • Hand Blast: Roberuga's preferred tactic is to spam purple orbs of explosive energy from its hands.
  • Madness Mantra: The first Roberuga only muttered "Obliterate Ultraman Mebius".
  • Spell My Name with an "S": Also translated as Roberugal or Lobegal, due to the "L-R" confusion of the Japanese language.
  • Voluntary Shapeshifting: Can transform into a flying saucer like all other Flying Saucer Beasts, but unlike the rest, Roberuga's body is totally retracted into the spaceship-like head rather than simply curled up into the appropriate shape.

Alien Mates Beo

First Appearance: The Monster Master's Legacy
Voiced by: Toshinori Yoshida (also human form actor)
The son of the original Alien Mates. Beo came to Earth to fulfill his father's hopes of creating a friendly relationship between humans and his people, but brought along Zoa Muruchi just in case things got hostile. Unfortunately they did, leading to another conflict between Earth and Planet Mates.
See Return of Ultraman

Zoa Muruchi

First Appearance: The Monster Master's Legacy
A variant of Muruchi brought by Beo just in case negotiations with Earth went the way of his father's attempt. When things went exactly as Beo feared they would, he called the monster forth to destroy a nearby town as his way of repaying humans for their hatred.
See Return of Ultraman
  • Art Evolution: Zoa Muruchi possesses green fins and dark blue spots on its body while its skin is a lighter shade of blue. Otherwise, it is the exact same as the original Muruchi.
  • Mythology Gag: Muruchi does a Battle in the Rain with an Ultraman again.
  • The Power of Hate: Beo explains to GUYS that Zoa Muruchi is literally driven by Beo's own anger towards humans for the death of his father. Appropriately, "zoa" is supposed to mean "hate" in the Mates' language,

Femigon

First Appearance: Lady of the Blue Flame
A monster that possessed a lovely new classmate of Teppei named Misa, giving her pyrokinetic powers. Unlike what happened with Ultraman Jack and the original Femigon, GUYS faced a serious crisis as they ran the risk of killing Misa if they destroyed Femigon.
See Return of Ultraman
  • Synchronization: Unlike MAT, GUYS is faced with the fact that if they destroy Femigon, its host will die. In fact, Ultraman Jack's defeat of Femigon in Return of Ultraman is retconned to explain that his Specium Ray's energies were somehow able to separate the monster from its host.

Alien Reflect

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/reflecto_new.png
First Appearance: The Man Without a Home
Voiced by: Hirohiko Kakegawa
An alien with armour-like skin that deflects all energy attacks, Reflect came to Earth to defeat Ultraman Mebius. As Mebius could not bypass Reflect's powerful shell, he had to turn to Ultraman Leo in order to learn the techniques that would defeat the alien. Alien Reflect also made a brief appearance in Ultra Galaxy Mega Monster Battle NEO.
  • A Taste of Defeat: What he showed to Mebius, as well as his reaction to having his wrist shield broken by the Mebium Drill Kick.
  • Arm Cannon: On his left wrist shield.
  • Attack Reflector: His skin acts like a mirror, reflecting all forms of light up to and including Ultraman beam attacks. He can also catch beam attacks with his bare hands and shoot them back out of his "mouth".
  • Blade Below the Shoulder: His preferred melee weapon, hidden in his right wrist shield.
  • Expy: Not of anyone specific, but rather all the aliens and monsters in the first few episodes of Ultraman Leo. Like them, Reflect had a technique or ability that made him difficult for the hero to kill, forcing them to train and find a way to defeat the villain and overcome their powers.
  • Grappling-Hook Pistol: On his right wrist shield.
  • Luckily, My Shield Will Protect Me: His wrist shields have the same properties as his skin. He tries to use them when Mebius uses the Mebium Drill Kick and fails.
  • No Mouth: Has a series of bars that glow when he talks.
  • No-Sell: Able to survive any beam attack no matter how powerful thanks to his armour. The same can't be said for intensely strong melee.
  • Smug Snake: Was very full of himself thanks to the self-given belief that he was invincible.
  • Spikes of Doom: Several spikes on his shell-like body.
  • Spin Attack: One of his abilities was to spin around rapidly, turning himself into a deflective weapon.
  • Torso with a View: Mebius and Leo defeat him by using their Diving Kicks to smash straight through his body.

Alien Babalou

First Appearance: Azure Waves of Light and Shadow
Voiced by: Motomu Kiyokawa
Initially encountered by Ultraman Hikari when he received a suspicious message from Mebius to meet him at Aarb, Babalou impersonated Mebius to capture Hikari, but the blue Ultra defeated the alien and forced him to flee. But in an act of vengeance, Babalou headed for Earth and disguised himself as Hunter Knight Tsurugi to attack cities. Although GUYS saw through the disguise, Babalou successfully revived Japan's fears of the blue Ultra, forcing Hikari to almost literally come face to face with his past self and his crimes.
See Ultraman Leo
  • An Ice Person: This incarnation of Babalou possesses the ability to breathe freezing mist. This ability was used to explain how Astra was trapped in ice by the alien in his original appearance in Ultraman Leo.

Alien Psychokino Kako

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/alien_psychokino.png
Kako is the one on the far right
First Appearance: Mirai's Younger Sister
Played by: Ayumi Takamune
One of a race of troublemakers who had destroyed their own world from abusing their psychic abilities, Kako is the leader of a small gang of her kind who came to Earth in the disguise of middle school students to make destructive mischief with the monster Angross. She also tried to pull the wool over GUYS' eyes by claiming to Mirai's younger sister. GUYS was not fooled by this, but decided to use as an opportunity to try and befriend her.
  • Back for the Finale: Kako returns one last time to help GUYS against Empera.
  • Defrosting Ice Queen: Kako starts off very cold and rather mischievous to others, but the words of Mirai leave her changed.
  • The Greys: Although Kako and the rest of her kind on Earth spend the majority of the episode disguised as schoolchildren, they're revealed to be this at the episode's end scene.
  • Meaningful Name: Since she claims to be Mirai's sister, it's only appropriate that "Kako" means "Past" in Japanese.
  • Psychic Powers: The whole gamut of them, including levitation, telepathy, teleportation, creating psychic shockwaves, mind and body control, and empathy. Most of these are for the sole purpose of annoying, humiliating, or even harming others.
  • The Trickster: Her species are a whole race of them, travelling from planet to planet to cause chaos and screw around with locals.

Angross

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/angross_better.png
First Appearance: Mirai's Younger Sister
A drill-snouted, mole-like monster created out of soil by Kako and the rest of her Psychokino friends to wreak havoc across Japan through its incredible tunneling power. Angross also appeared in Ultra Galaxy Mega Monster Battle.
  • Drill Mole: Angross' motif.
  • Golem: Kako made the monster out of earth to act as a servant, so it definitely could be considered one. Later appearances of Angross are left with unexplained origins though.
  • In a Single Bound: Angross is a very strong leaper, going far and wide in its jumps.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: Especially after Kako increases its power for the final battle.
  • Spikes of Doom: Three retractable ones on its back.
  • This Is a Drill: Its nose, though it can also act as a jackhammer.
  • Tunnel King: Thanks to its drill-nose, which allows it to dig far faster than any other monster.

Jashrine

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/jashrine_new.png
First Appearance: Father's Return
Voiced by: Dai Matsumoto (Angry Face), Shintaro Asanuma (Happy Face), Haji (Sad Face)
An alien criminal and fighter from the Eridanus System who had made a reputation out of turning those he defeated to gold. He came to Earth during a festival celebrating the Father of Ultra with dreams of adding an Ultraman to his collection, turning Mebius to gold and forcing the Father of Ultra to come save the day. Jashrine also appeared in Ultraman Ginga.
  • Battle Boomerang: The Angry Face's combat method is a massive boomerang that works just as well as a hammer.
  • Collector of the Strange: He collects the petrified bodies of those he defeats.
  • Expy: Of Alien Hipporito from Ultraman Ace. Both are very powerful aliens with petrification abilities, and Hipporito's episode also saw the debut of the Father of Ultra, who makes a similar return to save Mebius from Jashrine.
  • Jerkass: A cocky, sadistic, and aggressive alien.
  • Mayincatec: His motif is Mesoamerican totem poles.
  • Mind over Matter: The Sad Face uses telekinesis capable of manipulating even energy beams.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": Also called Jasyuline.
  • Spin Attack: His most powerful move asides from the Gold-Coating Ray. Capable of causing massive earthquakes that can shatter a planet.
  • Taken for Granite: He can fire a powerful ray of energy from his "wings" that turns targets to gold.
  • Two Beings, One Body / Multiple Head Case: Somewhere between both with his Angry, Happy, and Sad Faces. Each has their own distinct voice and personality, but only one face can be active at a given moment. They have a tendency to finish each other's sentences as they switch between dominance.
  • Victory Dance: Performs a rather humorous one after he defeats Mebius.

Arigera

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/arigera_6.png
First Appearance: Isana of the Ocean
An extraterrestrial monster capable of gliding through both seas and skies at incalculable speeds, which meant that GUYS had to team up with Captain Hiroshi Isana and his crew from GUYS Ocean to defeat it. Arigera also appeared in Ultra Galaxy Mega Monster Battle.

Alien Serpent

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/serpento_better.png
First Appearance: The Invincible Mother
Voiced by: Tetsuo Sakaguchi
Alien invaders whose leader merged with a loving mother and wife, as well as lunchlady at GUYS' mess hall, named Sayuri Hinode after she was killed in a car accident, promising to let her see her children and husband once more if she helped them with his mysterious agenda.
  • Bitch in Sheep's Clothing: The Serpent leader told Sayuri she could see her loved ones as long as she fulfilled some important duties to him. She had no idea they were just using her as a pawn to open an invasion gateway inside Phoenix Nest.
  • Deal with the Devil: What Sayrui essentially did with the Serpents to see her family again.
  • Demonic Possession: Something akin to an evil version of the Ultramen's merging powers.
  • Elemental Shapeshifter: Due to being composed entirely of water, they are able to turn into living puddles of water at will.
  • Expy: Their design was based off Alien Hook and Alien Borg, primarily in their ridged and featureless faces, metallic bodies, and simplistic clothes.
  • Evil Counterpart: Of the Ultramen. In fact, the scene where Sayrui and the Serpentian leader become one is a shot-for-shot imitation of what happened between Goh and Ultraman Jack in Return of Ultraman
  • Fusion Dance: The Serpents fuse themselves into a giant-sized being for the fight with Ultraman Mebius.
  • Hand Blast: They can shoot blue blasts of energy from their wrists.
  • Healing Factor: As long as they're exposed to moisture, this applies.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: The lead Serpent did not expect Sayuri's willpower to see her loved ones again to be stronger than his ability to take over her body.
  • Weaksauce Weakness: Salt, as their bodies are almost entirely made out of water.

Solitura

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/solitura_new.png
First Appearance: Lonely Paradise
A creature that traveled across the universe assimilating life from planet to planet. It landed in a Japanese forest, assuming a tree-like form and creating Soliturans that would target lonely and miserable people to be assimilated into the monster's form.
  • The Assimilator: Absorbs life into its mass, but since it can't move, the Soliturans look for the victims. It also takes on the form of its surroundings, as it first appears as a mass of pale white tendrils that then gain a woody texture and pile themselves up into the form of a tree monster upon grabbing some trees.
  • Half the Man He Used to Be: His fate.
  • Lotus-Eater Machine: Solitura's power is to put victims into a state of happiness and bliss in such a fashion while it assimilates them.
  • Meaningful Name: Solitura's name is Latin for "loneliness", as its minions target people unhappy with being alone in life.
  • Mook Maker: Creates Soliturans from the flowers on its mass to collect victims. The Soliturans can also remerge with Solitura as needed.
  • Planetary Parasite: Essentially what Solitura is — a monster that assimilates all life on a planet, merging their consciousnesses and the planet with itself.
  • Poisonous Person: Sprays poison pollen from its forehead.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": Also known as Sorichra.
  • When Trees Attack: Takes on the form of a tree kaiju upon the immediate assimilation of its forested surroundings, though it can disassemble this form to remain hidden until it desires to attack.

Soliturans

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/solituran.jpg
First Appearance: Lonely Paradise
Voiced by: Nobuhiko Tanaka (also human form actor)
Flower-headed men created by Solitura to search for victims. They disguise themselves as ordinary people and targeted lonely and miserable humans with temptations of paradise.
  • Foul Flower: They're flower-headed people spawned by flower growing from Solitura's body and then sent to find victims for assimilation.
  • I Am Legion: The Soliturans call themselves "we", as they are offshoots of Solitura rather than individual beings.
  • Man in White: Their human forms, wearing hoods like creepy cultists.
  • Plant Person: Their true form is essentially a humanoid mass of vines with a flower-topped head.
  • Poisonous Person: They possess the same poison pollen as Solitura, which paralyzes the nervous system.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": Sometimes called Sorichrans.
  • Voluntary Shapeshifting: They disguise themselves as white-robed humans to make their search for victims easier.
  • Whip It Good: They can transform their arms into whip-like vines to lash and strangle people.

Hoe

First Appearance: Teacher's Memories
A Minus Energy monster formed from massive amounts of Minus Energy created when the original class of Takeshi Yamato gathered at the soon-to-be-demolished Sakuragaoka Middle School for a final reunion where they hoped to reunite with their teacher again.
See Ultraman 80
  • Continuity Nod: The student whose Minus Energy had created the original Hoe in Ultraman 80 appears in the episode, and his old classmates ask him if he somehow did it again when Hoe reappears.
  • Non-Malicious Monster: Hoe doesn't attack its surroundings, as it was conjured by Sakuragaoka Middle School in an effort to bring back Ultraman 80 to see his students one more time. When 80 shows up, Hoe doesn't even fight back and lets him kill it.

Gadiba

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/gadiba.png
First Appearance: A Visit From an Old Friend
Yapool's personal pet, Gadiba is a Choju unique in its ability to steal the DNA of other lifeforms and either duplicate them or increase the power of others with it. It assimilated Gomora and Red King to take their forms to fight Ultraman Mebius. Later, Yapool used Gadiba to create Mebius Killer, using the information it had acquired on Ultraman Mebius in their initial encounter.
  • The Assimilator: Gadiba assimilates the DNA of other monsters in order to take their forms, which it does to Gomora and Red King. Worse still, it can steal the DNA of those it battles in order to strengthen other monsters, like using Ultraman Mebius' powers to create Mebius Killer.
  • Continuity Nod: To assimilate Gomora and Red King, Gadiba visits Johnson Island and Tatara Island, where the original ones appeared in Ultraman.
  • Evil Doppelgänger: In its Gomora and Red King forms, which also benefit from being more powerful than the standard versions.
  • Fog of Doom: It's a Choju made entirely of smoke.
  • Knight of Cerebus: Though GUYS doesn't realize it at the time, Gadiba's appearance marks the beginning of the series finale's 4 Heavenly Kings story arc and the buildup to the arrival of Empera.
  • Pet Monstrosity: Unlike other Choju, it's more of a pet to Yapool than a weapon.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: Its only clear features.
  • Shapeshifter: Takes on the form of Red King to battle GUYS, but after being defeated by Mebius, it immediately transforms into Gomora for Round 2.

Mebius Killer

First Appearance: Threat of Mebius Killer
Voiced by: Ryoichi Tanaka (in Ghost Rebirth)
The resurrected Ace Killer, this time empowered with the information amassed by Gadiba needed to destroy Ultraman Mebius by giving it Mebius' powers.

Lunatyx

First Appearance: Ace's Wish
A Choju sent by Yapool to destroy GUYS when he lured them with the Space-Time Emitter to the Moon while he isolated Mebius. Fortunately for GUYS and Mebius, Ultraman Ace helped to battle the rabbit-like monster while the team focused on other priorities.

Click here  to see U-Killersaurus Neo
First Appearance: Ultraman Mebius and the Ultra Brothers
The most powerful of all of Yapool's Choju, U-Killersaurus was sent by the extradimnensional entity to attack Earth five years after the events of Ultraman 80 and battled Ultraman, Ultraseven, Ultraman Jack, and Ultraman Ace on the Moon. The four heroes managed to imprison it and Yapool in the seafloor off Kobe, but the immense drainage on their powers forced them to revert to their human forms to regenerate strength and hide as citizens of Kobe. Unfortunately, it was freed by the alliance of alien warlords during Mebius' time and returned more powerful than before as the gargantuan U-Killersaurus Neo.
  • Big Bad: Of The Movie, albeit with Yapool controlling its mind via Demonic Possession.

  • Eye Beams: Shoots blue lasers from is eyes.
  • The Juggernaut: This thing is so damn powerful that the combined efforts of four veteran Ultra warriors could only barely succeed in imprisoning it (and at the cost of so much energy that they had to remain in human forms for 20 years). And don't get us started on its second form, which not even the arrival of Ultraman Taro and Zoffy could help in tipping the balance very much..
  • Made of Evil: According to Yapool, he created U-Killersaurus from his sheer hatred of the Ultras.
  • Names to Run Away from Really Fast: The "U" stands for "Ultra", which should give a good idea of why Yapool created the creature.
  • One-Winged Angel: Its second form, U-Killersaurus Neo. It grows from 79 meters to a whopping 303 meters in height, with the original body being reduced to where the stinger tail would be on a scorpion-like colossus.

See Ultraman Taro
  • Art Evolution: Alien Temperor receives a more menacing redesign, with a slimmer body, a thinner head, longer limbs, and narrower eyes
  • Badass Cape: It now possesses the ability to transform into a pair of wings for flight.

Alien Zarab

First Appearance: Ultraman Mebius and the Ultra Brothers
Voiced by: Takeshi Aono
The second alien warlord, Zarab plotted to incapacitate Mebius as part of the alliance's plans to resurrect U-Killersaurus. He did this by impersonating Aya to poison Mirai, and then took on Mebius' form to destroy Kobe. He was also destroyed by Mebius shortly afterwards, but weakened the hero enough for the remaining two aliens to strike.
See Ultraman
  • Art Evolution: Alien Zarab has a narrower and more detailed head, as well as more distinct skin texture than the original one.
  • Barrier Warrior: Unlike in his original appearance, Zarab can create a small force field to block attacks.
  • Eye Beams: Another ability the original Zarab did not possess.
  • Mythology Gag: Zarab gives Mirai a poisoned drink while in the form of Aya. Likewise, the original Zarab in Ultraman took the form of Fuji to incapacitate Arashi by spiking his tea.

Alien Guts

First Appearance: Ultraman Mebius and the Ultra Brothers
Voiced by: Piston Nishizawa
The third alien warlord, Gut entered the battle alongside Nackle immediately after Zarab's death.

See Ultraseven
  • Art Evolution: Alien GUTS receives a burlier and more armoured appearance in this series. The suit's details were refined too, creating more defined feet and skin textures.
  • Mythology Gag: Alien Guts crucifies Ultramen in crystal crosses...again.

Alien Nackle

First Appearance: Ultraman Mebius and the Ultra Brothers
Voiced by: Ryusei Nakao
The fourth alien warlord, Nackle joined Guts to help defeat Ultraman, Ultraseven, Ultraman Jack, and Ultraman Ace, as well as complete the revival of U-Killersaurus with the intent of using the Ultras' own power to bring back the ultimate Choju.
See Return of Ultraman
  • Art Evolution: Like the other three aliens, Nackle receives a redesign in this series, with smaller eyes, a narrower head, a bumpier and darker skin texture, and smaller spots.
  • Hand Blast: Whereas the original Nackle only had Eye Beams, this one can shoot chargeable energy blasts from his hands as well.
  • Mythology Gag: This isn't the first time Alien Nackle has crucified an Ultra hero. Just ask poor Ultraman Jack.
  • You Have Outlived Your Usefulness: Yapool has U-Killersaurus kill him after being resurrected.

From Gaidens

Aarb

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/aabu.jpg
First Appearance: Ultraman Mebius Gaiden: Hikari Saga
A race of crystalline beings at one with their namesake world — great intellectuals and peace lovers studied by a visiting Ultraman Hikari. However, the Aarb were devoured by Bogal, whom Hikari was no match for. In Hikari's grief, the spirits of Aarb merged themselves with Hikari, whose anger at Bogal transformed him into Hunter Knight Tsurugi.
  • Genius Loci: The Aarb are both the planet they live upon and the crystals that grow all over its surface.
  • I Am Legion: Due to the Aarb being as much the planet as they are its inhabitants, they refer themselves as "we".
  • Shock and Awe: Although a peaceful people, the Aarb are able to fire lightning bolts from their forms for self-defense, though it proved futile against Bogal.
  • Silicon-Based Life: They're essentially sentient crystals. When they speak to Hikari, they uproot themselves and make a figure with a vaguely humanoid outline.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": Also called Aabu or Arb.

Armored Darkness

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/armored_darkness_i.png
First Appearance: Ultraman Mebius Gaiden: Armored Darkness
Voiced by: Ryuzaburo Otomo
Empera's personal suit of armour animated to avenge him if he died. It came to Earth after the events of the series in the form of a huge ball of destructive darkness, resurrecting Kelbeam, Mukadender, Salamandoras, and Roberuga, and bringing GUYS back together one last time. Armored Darkness would appear in a few other series afterwards, notably in Ultra Galaxy Mega Monster Battle NEO.
  • Animated Armour: Of Empera, designed specifically to avenge him.
  • Assimilation Backfire: Armored Darkness becomes paralyzed if the one it is controlling somehow regains control of themselves. Ultraman Hikari was able to do this, giving GUYS the time they needed to formulate a plan to free him from Armored Darkness.
  • Avenging the Villain: Its purpose was to destroy Earth after Ultraman Mebius and GUYS defeated Empera.
  • Casting a Shadow: Armored Darkness can fire beams of darkness from its trident.
  • Clingy Costume: As an animated suit of armour, it requires a wearer in order to use its power to its fullest. For this reason, it can force itself on somebody, imprisoning the wearer inside it and controlling them to use it (as Ultraman Hikari, and later Ultraseven, found out).
  • Demonic Possession: Anybody who is forced to wears Armored Darkness becomes a victim of this as the suit of armour gains full control over their bodies to move about.
  • Phantom Zone: Its Darkness Sphere, which it intended to use to crash into Earth and cause a cataclysm. Entering the sphere brings one into a shadowy and desolated wasteland that nullifies light-based powers. According to some materials, it's meant to be a representation of what Empera's homeworld looks like.
  • Prongs of Poseidon: It carries a two-headed trident that can shoot beams of dark energy.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: Its Glowing Eyes of Doom.

Mecha-Zam

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mechazam_new.png
First Appearance: Ultraman Mebius Gaiden: Ghost Rebirth
Voiced by: Hideyuki Hori
A mysterious cyborg who appeared when the 4 Heavenly Kings were resurrected in the Monster Graveyard. He first appeared to Mebius to help him battle an Imperiser, and accompanied the hero in his quest to retrieve the Giga-Battlenizer, but insisted that his sole interest was to fight for the sheer sake of it.
  • Anti-Hero: Opposes the 4 Heavenly Kings as much as Mebius does in the story, but only because fighting is the one thing he cares about.
  • Back from the Dead: Is actually Zamusha revived by the 4 Heavenly Kings as a cyborg to become the new body for a resurrected Empera.
  • Blade Below the Shoulder: Mecha-Zam's weapon of choice, known as the Zanbar.
  • Blood Knight: Mecha-Zam battles for the sole interest of fighting, as he believes that it is his purpose
  • Cyborg: Though from who and for what reason he was built, he cannot remember.
  • Healing Factor: Like those of the Imperisers.
  • Soulless Shell: Due to the fact that he's actually meant to be Empera's new body, though the ritual to put Empera's spirit inside him requires the Giga-Battlenizer.

EX Zetton

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ex_zetton_tall_1.png
First Appearance: Ultraman Mebius Gaiden: Ghost Rebirth
A more powerful version of Zetton placed by Ultraman King to protect the Giga-Battlenizer from thieves. Ultraman Mebius and Mecha-Zam faced it when the 4 Heavenly Kings demanded they retrieve the Giga-Battlenizer in exchange for releasing Taro and Ace from imprisonment.
  • Canon Immigrant: Originally from the Mega Monster Battle: Ultra Coliseum video game series.
