Ultraman Orb's Spacium Zeperion form
Click here  to see Gai Kurenai

Portrayed by: Hideo Ishiguro (live), Hideyoshi Iwata (suit), Takahiro Sakurai (Orb Ring voice)

The title hero of the Ultra Series 50th anniversary celebration show, Ultraman Orb is a vagabond Ultraman who has wandered across the universe for thousands of years, often in the form of his human identity Gai Kurenai, locked in a seemingly endless struggle with his rival Jugglus Juggler. He transforms using the Orb Ring and the Ultra Cards.

Tropes that apply to him in general

  • Adorkable: When there is a situation that doesn't requires him to be a badass (which is uncommon), Gai is this.
  • Alien Among Us: Like several Ultras before him, Gai is Orb's human form. Unlike them, however, is Gai's human form was his original form before being chosen by the Orb Calibur resulted in his becoming an Ultra.
  • Brown Note: Gai's harmonica can cause discomfort to aliens, enough to stop what they're doing. Juggler in particular is affected by it.
  • Bullet Catch: Is able to do this. With lasers. Justified as he has Super Toughness.
  • The Chosen One: Is revealed to have originally been a Human Alien who was chosen by the Orb Calibur, which resulted in him becoming an Ultra.
  • Dark and Troubled Past: In 1908, Natasha Romanova, a woman he befriended, was apparently killed amidst the crossfire of his battle against Maga-Zetton. This is the reason he keeps most of his new friends at SSP at arm's length lest they share the same fate as her, as well as the reason he lost both the Orb Calibur as well as the will to tap into his Origin form. The revelation that Natasha survived the event and lived to have descendants, including Naomi, led to Gai's mental breakthrough that let him recover his Origin form and the Orb Calibur.
  • Experienced Protagonist: Has been fighting monsters and protecting people for thousands of years. Even before becoming an Ultra, he was a soldier.
  • Iconic Item: Gai's Orbnica. He plays it Once an Episode.
  • Moment of Weakness: What caused him to lose access to his Origin Form: he became enraged at Maga-Zetton during their fight to the point of letting lose a blast that leveled the entire area and seemingly killing Natasha.
  • Must Make Amends: After realizing Naomi is Natasha's descendant, he decides to protect her in Natasha's memory for this reason. Doing so results in his true form being restored.
  • My God, What Have I Done?: Still has this over the event that cost him his true form. He also gets this in response to his second use of Thunder Breaster nearly getting Naomi killed.
  • Really 700 Years Old: Has been on Earth as early as 1908. The Ultraman Orb Chapter 4 reveals that he and Juggler had been on Earth since 1800 BC.
  • Serious Business: Proper bathhouse etiquette. He's especially miffed over Maga-Jappa because of it's horrendous lack of it.
  • Spell My Name with an "S": For the first ten episodes of the Indonesian dub, Gai's name is spelled as "Kai". Ironically, his actor played the Big Bad of Kamen Rider Den-O who goes by the name Kai...
  • Stuffed in the Fridge: A literal variation, of his own volition. Gai's first appearance since the Cold Opening is him getting out of a cramped refrigerated truck after a 5 hour drive, which ended when the driver gets out when he hears Gai's harmonica playing.
  • Super Toughness: Likely due to being an Ultra in human form rather than a human host, he's shown the ability to shrug off a lot of damage and punishment with very little injury. Heck, his Establishing Character Moment is emerging from a freezer truck after a long ride and suffering no ill effects at all, much to the driver's shock.
    • What makes the freezer truck scene important to knowledgeable fans is that Ultras tend to have a very bad weakness to freezing temperatures (Ultraseven in particular showed this weakness off, where Dan hardly could move when he was up to his waist in snow), yet was able to get out of it okay.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Ramune.
  • Transformation Trinket: Gai uses the Orb Ring in conjunction with Fusion Cards for his Fusion forms, as well as a miniature version of the Orb Calibur for Origin. The Orb Calibur however was his original one, as being chosen by it turned him into an Ultra. Getting the Orb Ring offscreen allowed him to evolve from Origin the First to Origin. This makes Gai rather unique as he's got two unique Transformation Trinket items that can be used independently to access different forms even if one is inaccessible.
  • Training from Hell: Gai got put through a 10 year long training course by Seven and Zero in Ultra Fight Orb in order to obtain Emerium Slugger.
  • Upgrade Artifact: Subverted with the Orb Calibur: it seems to be what gives him his Super Mode Orb Origin, but in actuality it's the other way around. The Orb Calibur is his original transformation trinket and the Orb Ring is his actual Upgrade Artifact that turned Orb Origin the First into Orb Origin.
  • Was Once a Man: Unlike other Ultras, he's neither a host to Orb nor is Orb his original form. When he was chosen by the Orb Calibur, it turned him into an Ultra.

    • Water makes Orb activate the Orb Water Calibur, where he first traps the target in a vortex of water, then slashes them.
    • Earth makes Orb activate the Orb Ground Calibur, where he stabs the Calibur into the ground, generating twin energy waves that travel in a orb pathway to crash into the opponent.
    • Wind makes Orb activate the Orb Wind Calibur, where he creates a cyclone that sends them up into the wild blue yonder. If anything else manages to get caught in the cyclone, they collide into each other.
  • Destructive Savior: Normally subverted, given he's an Ultra and thus actively tries to limit collateral damage. Played straight in his Thunder Brester form, as he becomes much more feral and has much less regard for human life.
  • Finishing Move:
    • In-series
      • Specium Zepellion - Sperion Beam: Orb's first Ultra Beam. He lifts his right arm into the air, then puts his left arm across his chest, throws it out quickly, then brings the left arm back to perform the signature Ultra Beam pose.
      • Burnmite
      • Stobium Dynamite: Orb enshrouds himself in fire, then grabs the monster and harmlessly detonates himself, taking out the monster instead of himself.
      • Strobium Burst: Orb enshrouds himself in fire, then fires it in a explosive fireball that consumes the monster.
      • Hurricane Slash
      • Orb Lancer Shoot: Pulls on the Gear Lever once on the Orb Slugger Lance and hits the button, discharging the energy as a singular beam.
      • Big Bang Thrust: With the kaiju still embedded in the business end of the Orb Slugger Lance, Orb pulls on the Gear Lever twice, hits the button, then discharges the energy into the kaiju, then lifts the kaiju into the air.
      • Trident Slash: If Orb pulls on the Gear Lever thrice and hits the button, he slashes at the kaiju like a Ultra possessed.
      • Thunder Breaster - Zedcium Ray: Orb's second Ultra Beam. He brings his hands close together, fusing the power of Zoffy's light and Belial's darkness, getting a ring of pure white and wicked red to form in front of him as he move his hands apart. He brings his hands behind his head, then performs the signature Ultra Beam pose.
      • Origin
      • Orb Supreme Calibur: Orb's third Ultra Beam and the only one that's from his weapon. He first scans the Orb Calibur into the Orb Ring, then spins the Calibur to cycle through the elements again, hits the trigger, then spin the Calibur once more. Once that's done, Orb makes a circle in the air, charges the blade with the energy from said circle, then shoots a elementally mixed beam from the Orb Calibur.
      • Orb Supreme Calibur (Super-powered variant): During the finale, the Orb Supreme Calibur was boosted by the power of the 8 Ultra Fusion Cards' respective Ultra Beams, and launches the blade at the poor sap that this attack's boring down on. Orb then quickly unleashes his own Ultra Beam, the Origium Ray.
      • Origium Ray: Orb's fourth Ultra Beam, and technically his first one. Orb fires a powerful blast by crossing his hands into a plus shape. It was first shown in the Freeze-Frame Bonus portion of the above attack, but it was shown in full in The Origins Saga.
      • Trinity
      • Trinitium Shoot: Gai slides his finger down on the Orb Slasher twice, then hits the trigger. Once done, he makes the motion for Victory's Victorium Shoot, allowing him to fire an Ultra Beam from the Orb Slasher.
      • Trinitium Break: Gai slides his finger down on the Orb Slasher thrice, then hits the trigger. Once done, he makes the motion for Ginga's Ginga Cross Shoot, then fires two light rings to cut into his opponents. Finally, he jumps up and gives them one final slash.
      • Trinitium Halo: Gai slides his finger down on the Orb Slasher thrice, then hits the button on the bottom on the Orb Slasher. He then makes the motion for X's Xanadium Beam, then creates a massive ring of light made up of the symbols of all four Ultras, and sends it roaring at the opponent.
      • Lightning Attacker:
      • Attacker Ginga X: Orb leaps into the air, and charges himself with electricity, then forms an "X" with his body to launch an energy stream.
      • Emerium Slugger
      • Wide Slugger Shot: Orb does some arm motions before resting his arms into a familiar arm motion both Seven and Zero use for their Wide Shot variants. In Ultra Fight Orb, the arm motions were removed.
      • ES Specium: A supercharged variant of Emerium Slugger. It was shown in the final episode of Ultra Fight Orb to 'kill' Reibatos, which used some arm motions from Zero's version.
      • Triple Emerium Ray: Orb fires a more powerful version of Seven's Emerium Ray from his forehead. However, instead of causing an explosion, this beam seems to pierce through its target.
      • Hyper Ultra Knock Tactic: In a similar manner to Seven's Ultra Knock Tactic, Orb unleashes all three of his crest weapons at his target, surrounding them while slashing them.
    • Fusion Fight Finishers
      • Photon Victorium - Photorium Knuckle: Orb flex his right arm out, then slams it onto the ground, sending a pillar of red light and flame skyward from the impact. He then drags it across the ground as he goes over to his opponent, then lifts it off the ground and throws a spinning haymaker.
      • Sky Dash Max - Macbalt Attack: Orb charges up the attack into his left hand. He then condenses it then dash around his opponents with high speed before appearing in front of them and fire a high impact bolt of light. In the preview trailer for Ultraman Fusion Fight!, it functioned similarly, though it ended like a Ultra Beam attack.
      • Full Moon Xanadium - Fulldium Ray: Orb raises his hands into the air, then moves his left foot in a arc along the ground in a bracing manner as he moves his arms, then fires the Ultra Beam from his extended left hand.
      • Leo Zero Knuckle - Zero Cross Beam: Orb slams a cross punch, followed by a uppercut and a side kick before firing a forehead beam.
      • Zepellion Solgent - Multi Flash Slash: Orb jumps up into the air, and spins as he charges up energy. When he stops, he throws his hands upwards before flinging them downwards, firing two simultaneous light slash attacks.
      • Thunder Miracle - Thunder Miracle Attack: Orb jumps up into the air and creates a barrier field around him. He then flies at the opponent fist first.
      • Slugger Ace - Slugger Ace Slicer: Orb does a chopping motion with the Vertical Slugger, then jumps into air and spins like a top before finishing with one last slash.
      • Knight Liquidator - Crusher Knight Liquidator: Orb charges up energy into the Light Crystal on his forehead akin to Agul's Photon Crusher, then fires a series of light waves from it.
      • Spacium Storm - Ultra Full Burst: Orb flies into the air, does a loop-de-loop, then charges energy. He then fires his Energy Core akin to Nexus' Impulse Core, which is swiftly followed by a volley of Slash Rays.
      • Power Strong - Garlacium Bomber: Orb punches his hands together, then pulls them apart as a ball of light forms. In a similar manner to Tiga's Deltacium Light Stream, he then gradually arcs his arms until he clasps the ball with his energized hands, further powering the ball, before sending it rocketing at the opponent with a great shove.
      • Thunder Stream - Thunder Stream Neptune: Orb holds aloft the Giga Trident skyward, getting water energy to gather into the trident head. He then poises to strike and thrusts forwards, firing a snaking stream of water that bores into its opponent.
      • Mebium Especially - Mebiuspecially Blade: Orb first summons the swords, making them fire five streams of energy. Then Orb grabs the middle sword, and the four others surround the grabbed blade while they all emit a beam of energy and begin spinning, creating a giant blade of light that Orb then brings crashing down in a chopping motion.
      • Breaster Knight - Knight 87 Shoot: Orb slashes his foe twice with a energy blade before jumping backwards into the air firing after making arm motions similar to both the M87 Beam and Knight Shoot.
      • Storium Galaxy - Stoxium Cannon: Orb first gathers light from his Color Timer, then, by mirroring the arm motions for the Maxium Cannon almost perfectly, Orb fires a powerful beam after glowing much like Taro does.
  • Fusion Dance: To transform into Orb, Gai scans two Ultra Fusion Cards into the Orb Ring, changing his form with motifs with both of those Ultra, as well as their powers. Orb's forms' names are portmanteaus of either a certain finisher used by those two Ultramen or something else that is pertaining to that Ultra. When Orb's Color Timer rings, Orb's fusion is in danger of breaking up.
  • Leitmotif: When transforming into any into Orb's forms, the Orb Ring plays a chord of music after announcing "FUSION UP!", and as fight music as well. Averted for any of the Ultraman Fusion Fight! forms. Except maybe Emerium Slugger and Lightning Attacker, which are appearing in Ultra Fight Orb.
    • Spacium Zeperion uses awe-striking space orchestral music.
    • Burnmite uses an energetic electric guitar chord.
    • Hurricane Slash uses fast-paced dramatic music.
    • Thunder Breaster uses ominous, villain-type music (Justified, as one half of the combination is the evil Ultraman Belial).
    • Origin uses the melody Gai frequently plays on his Orbnica (with accompanying acoustics).
  • Multiform Balance:
  • Godzilla Threshold: Thunder Breaster is this. While extremely powerful, Belial's malevolent nature turns him into an amoral berserker and the best Gai can do is choose who all that power and destruction is directed at. So naturally, Gai really doesn't like using it unless he has to.
  • Mythology Gag: Orb's rising scenes features elements from both of the used Ultramen's own rising scenes. In Thunder Breaster's transformation, since Belial has no rising scene, it instead shows a brief shot of the prison Belial was sealed in.
  • Super Prototype: Origin, as its name implies, is Orb's true form, and is also fairly powerful in conjunction with the Orb Calibur.
  • Too Awesome to Use: Origin form was so powerful it destroyed the entire area he and Maga-Zetton were fighting in as well as the Orb Calibur he needed to transform with, in the process apparently getting Natasha fatally caught in the crossfire. Luckily, Natasha gets better, but Gai doesn't know that until he realizes that Naomi is her descendant.
  • Transformation Is a Free Action: While we see an entire sequence, in the series, Orb's likely transforming in a matter of seconds.
  • Weapon of Choice:
    • While using Hurricane Slash, Orb can transform the Orb Sluggers into the Orb Slugger Lance.
    • While using Orb Origin, Orb can use the Orb Calibur.
    • While using Orb Trinity, Orb Can use the Orb Slasher.
    • While using Photon Victorium, Orb can use currently unnamed Power Fist gauntlets on both arms.
    • While using Sky Dash Max, Orb can use currently unnamed armguards with spikes attached to them.
    • While using Slugger Ace, Orb can use the Vertical Slugger.
    • While using Knight Liquidator, Orb can use the Knight Agul Blades.
    • While using Thunder Stream, Orb can use the Giga Trident.
    • While using Mebium Especially, Orb can use currently unnamed five rainbow-hued crystal-like swords.

Allies

    Something Search People (SSP) 
A motley group of paranormal investigators who frequently run into Gai Kurenai during their adventures.

As a whole:

  • Earn Your Happy Ending: As of the final episode, the SSP gets a lot of viewers from around the world.
  • Mythology Gag: They are not the first organization whose acronym consists of multiple S's that end with a P.
  • Power Trio: Enforced. The SSP consists of only 3 members whose base of operations is out of an apartment.
  • Screw the Rules, I Have Connections!: If Ittetsu wasn't Naomi's uncle, the SSP would probably have a much harder time with their investigations.
  • 0% Approval Rating: In-series example. Whatever the SSP try to do on their website, it gets ignored or derided.
    • This changes in later episodes. Notably, in episode 17, the SSP's Orb fight livestream is enough to convince the VTL to call off their attack and skepticism towards Orb's motives.

Naomi Yumeno

Portrayed by: Miyabi Matsuura

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

The protagonist and leader of the SSP. Since she was a child, she has had recurring dreams of a giant of light battling some monster, and little does she know that Gai Kurenai has something to do with it...


  • Damsel in Distress: She has a habit of getting herself into these kinds of situations.
  • Genetic Memory: As Natasha's descendant, she has constant visions of her ancestor's apparently fatal run-in with Orb Origin and Maga-Zetton.
  • The Kirk
  • Magic Music: The lullaby that she sings generally has a calming effect, and also allows Gai to regain the power of Orb Origin while having similar Brown Note properties as the Orbnica when used against Jugglus.
  • New Jobs As The Plot Demands: Due to the SSP's constant inability to pay up the apartment rent, Naomi constantly changes jobs, including a coffee saleswoman, a waitress, and a construction worker.
  • No Indoor Voice: She can't help herself; she has to shout when directing the SSP to move out.
  • The Smurfette Principle: Not only is she the sole female of the SSP, Naomi's the sole lead female in the series.
  • Reincarnation Romance: It's implied that her feelings for Gai are influenced by the visions she has relating to Gai's friend, Natasha, from a hundred years ago. Furthermore, she inexplicably knows a song that Natasha once sang that alongside Gai's Orbnica. It's eventually revealed that she is a descendant of Natasha as well, further explaining the link between them.
  • Supporting Protagonist: The show focuses more on her and SSP with Gai (Ultraman Orb himself, in other words) as the Deuteragonist.

Jetta Hayami

Portrayed by: Naoto Takahashi

    Versatile Tactical Leader (VTL) 
The defense team of this series. Unlike in previous shows, they largely act as background characters, getting involved with the Monsters of the Week whenever those show up.

As a whole

  • Armies Are Useless: Compared to most monster fighting groups in the franchise. Their attempts to fight monsters generally don't go very well.
  • Mythology Gag: Their Z-VTOL fighter jet is a Palette Swap of the Jet-VTOL used by the SSSP in Ultraman.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: The launching of their newest missile in the final two episodes designed to contain Magata-No-Orochi supplies the last bit of energy needed to awaken it instead.

Ittetsu Shibukawa

Portrayed by: Shingo Yanagisawa

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

Naomi's uncle and an officer for VTL. He tends to get involved in his niece and her friend's adventures, encountering Gai and occasionally dealing with any monsters and alien they run into.


  • A Day Inthe Limelight: Episode 18 "Hard-Boiled Liver". He gets to battle Alien Shaplay while Orb battles Bemular, and it's awesome.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: Tends to be a slapstick magnet and is generally portrayed as a professional Foil to the SSP's independence. However, he knows both Judo and Karate and he's doggedly persistant in a brawl. When necessary, he can think on the fly.
  • Cool Old Guy
  • Dub Name Change: In the Indonesian dub, he's given the nickname Kawa.
  • Family-Friendly Firearms: Subverted. Uses a very realistic-looking pistol that shoots both standard and electric anti-alien rounds. The electric rounds see more use, though.
  • Hidden Depths: He is in fact a father. Also see The Reveal below.
  • Obfuscating Stupidity: Implied. See Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass, then The Reveal.
  • Police are Useless: Played With. Ittetsu and the VTL are rather capable of keeping the peace and are seemingly doing just fine at handling minor alien issues off-screen until giant Kaiju come along. Their track record in that regard is....spotty.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: Despite being in the VTL, he's rather lenient about letting the SSP conduct their investigations and acknowledges their contributions as opposed to pushing them away.
  • Sixth Ranger: To the SSP most of the time.
  • The Chew Toy: To Naomi's mother.
  • The Reveal: He's just an officer for the VTL, right? He's actually the Intelligence Officer of the VTL.
  • The Worf Effect: Most of the time he's shown fighting, Gai has to bail him out.
    • Averted in "Hard-Boiled Liver" however, to the point where a dual-shot is shown of Ultraman Orb and Ittetsu fighting their respective enemies at the same time.
  • Too Dumb to Live: By all means shoot the fifty-foot-tall homicidal maniac that just took out Ultraman Orb with your tiny pea-shooter. That won't backfire at all.

    Royal Planet Kanon (Ultraman Orb: The Origin Saga

A planet inhabited by a race of human-like aliens whose lives are connected to an enormous tree they know as the Tree of Life. Psychi is targeting them and their world as part of his plans, but Gai and Juggler have arrived to help the people of Kanon stop him.

Antagonists

    Jugglus Juggler 

Jugglus Juggler

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/juggulus_juggler.png
Click here  to see his Majin form

Portrayed by: Takaya Aoyagi (live)

The primary antagonist of the series and longtime rival of Ultraman Orb/Gai Kurenai. Juggler is a ruthless demon-like being who wields the Janshin Ken or Serpent-Hearted Blade. He is the one who awakens the various King Demon Beasts and occasionally summons monsters for orb to fight using his Kaiju Cards and his Dark Ring.
  • Ax-Crazy: During his most unhinged moments, it becomes clear he's a complete homicidal psychopath.
  • Bad Guys Do the Dirty Work: Ironically in the series, he was never shown directly killing a human. His only victims are aliens that are as evil as he is (Nagus, Nostra and Katarohi), while the former two was justified for stabbing on his back during their deal.
  • Big-Bad Ensemble: Shares this role with Don Nostra until he kills him and takes the Ultraman Belial card from him.
  • The Dark Side Will Make You Forget: Admits his memories have faded a bit with time and caused him to repress his memories of saving Natasha.
  • Driven by Envy: By his own admission, this is the basis of his grudge on Gai: they used to have a Friendly Rivalry, but the Orb Calibur chose Gai to transform into Orb instead of him, despite, in Juggler's opinion, being inferior to him.
  • Evil Cannot Comprehend Good:
    • Despite calling out Don Nostra on this trope, he himself has it. He simply can't comprehend why Gai/Orb cares so much about humanity, nor why Naomi can just shrug off nearly being killed by Orb's use of Thunder Breaster. His problem at its core seems to be he can't comprehend why others don't get the same kicks out of causing destruction and chaos as he does. This is ultimately his undoing, as his inability to comprehend why Gai cares so much results in him accidentally giving Orb a Heroic Second Wind in their final battle by threatening the SSP.
    • He was left completely dumbfounded by saving Natasha, unsure of why he did so, causing his memories to be repressed.
  • Evil Counterpart: To Gai. His Dark Ring is a Palette Swap of Gai's Orb Ring, and it summons Kaiju from his Kaiju Cards instead of utilizing Ultra Fusion Cards. In episode 16, the Dark Ring also has the ability to fuse two Kaiju Cards. His absorbing darkness into his sword seems to turn it into an evil counterpart of the Orb Calibur.
  • Evil Feels Good: His reason for causing destruction like he does: he relishes the feeling of using the power he possesses to destroy whatever he wants. It's also why he decides he and Gai are Not So Different after Orb's first use of Thunder Breaster.
  • Evil Knockoff: Essentially turns his katana into one to the Orb Calibur by absorbing darkness into it.
  • Evil Makes You Ugly: By the finale, Juggler has tainted himself with so much darkness that he sports Creepy Shadowed Undereyes, his hair's a frazzled mess and his teeth, already naturally elongated, couldn't be yellower. Making it all the more creepy when he smiles.
  • Eviler Than Thou: To Don Nostra, who he ultimately outsmarts and kills.
  • Face–Heel Turn: Was once a soldier of the same force with Gai in the past. His Start of Darkness began when Gai was chosen as Ultraman Orb instead of him, followed by his transformation into his Demon Form. After working as a mercenary and jailed for his crimes, his Face Heel Turn becomes more tragic after obtaining the Dark Ring when said device said that he has the most evil heart.
  • Heel–Face Turn: Decides to aid Gai in battling the reawakened Orochi in the finale.
  • Katanas Are Just Better: Carries one with him as he is a practitioner of Serpent-Hearted Way sword technique. He later upgrades it by absorbing darkness into it.
  • Not Me This Time: In theMovie, Gai assumes he's scheming and somehow behind the current crisis. He's not, Mulnau is the Big Bad and Juggler is just trying to get the Dark Ring back from her. He's actually on Gai's side this time.
  • Not So Different: Considers Gai this after his first use of Thunder Breaster.
  • Oblivious to Love: In The Origin Saga, he denied Micott's offer of becoming her master and failed to notice her. Her death hits him hard so much that it gave him the final push to his Demon Form. He also met Biranki, who falls for him after a Rescue Romance, going to the point of attacking Gai on Earth just to help Juggler but never reciprocate her feelings.
  • One-Winged Angel: Zeppandon, as unlike his other monsters he FUSES with the cards to become the merged beast rather than simply summoning and controlling it.
  • Prison Dimension: Is implied to have confined the Dark Ring into one during Ultraman Orb The Movie after seizing it from an Alien Guts that had been harassing the SSP. This un-does the crystal containment of Ginga and Victory and allows the Ultras to retaliate against Mulnau and her goons. Whether it stays there is another story.
  • Really 700 Years Old: Juggler has been on Earth as long as Gai has: For about 4,000 years.
  • Stalker Without a Crush: The Ultraman Orb Chronicle implies that Juggler becomes this after the movie, choosing to follow Gai around discreetly during his adventures.
  • Strike Me Down with All of Your Hatred: In chapter 3, he gives this one to Gai when the latter tries to beat him. Good thing Gai quickly snaps back to his senses.
  • The Only One Allowed to Defeat You: His reasons for helping Gai During Ultraman Orb The Movie.
  • The Unfettered: Wants to make Gai suffer and will stop at nothing to achieve that goal. Even if it means unleashing a Planet Eater back into the universe and dooming Earth and who knows how many other planets in the process.
  • The Worf Effect: Juggler is subjected to this in the movie. After getting his very own Fusion Up scene for his transformation into Zeppandon,note  including the SSP cheering for HIM too.....he lasts less than two minutes before being overwhelmed by Mulnau's goons and rendered unconscious.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: While it appears to be subtle, it appeared that he has a penchant for coffees. The series downplayed this trait a little but Ultraman Orb Chronicle suggested that he also drank one after activating a Fantastic Nuke while threatening a prison guard to bring Gai to him.
  • Villainous Breakdown: As Maga-Orochi was getting a beatdown instead of Orb as Thunder Breaster, Juggler gets more and more unhinged before going for a shrill scream when Maga-Orochi bites it. He later lets out a shrill scream of anguish after not only does Orb regain both the means and will to transform into Origin, but also easily defeated him and Zeppandon, and in the process destroying his Dark Ring.
  • We Used to Be Friends: Gai and Juggler used to be in the same force together, but the Holy Sword ultimately chose Gai as Orb's host, causing Juggler to hate Gai.
  • With Great Power Comes Great Insanity: In the Ultraman Orb chapter 3, Juggler's first response in getting the Dark Ring was to unleash an insane laughter.

  • Heel–Face Turn: Implied at the end of the series.
  • Human Aliens: His species are referred to as Alien Wraith.
  • Hypocrite: Psychi himself is a pacifist who tries to sent his Bezelbs and infect people so no more bloodsheds can happen.

He even outright attacked the residents of Kanon itself despite giving Amate the intended time for her to surrender.
  • Large Ham

  • Unwitting Pawn: Was revealed to be this, as Queen Bezelb was the actual villain and has been influencing Psychi since his childhood.

She is a powerful alien sorceress and an old enemy of Ultraman Orb he originally encountered on Jewel Planet Cobol thousands of years ago. After the events of the TV series, she has returned with some new minions and new plans to turn the world into crystal.


  • Alas, Poor Villain: Her dying moments are spent with Gai and her talking about true beauty, and her lamenting its too late for her to truly understand it now.
  • Big Bad: Of The Movie.
  • Eviler Than Thou: The Dark Ring left Juggler for her precisely because she's more evil than him, and it actively seeks out the most evil heart to be its master. She also seems considerably more dangerous in its use than he was. While he manages to trick her and reclaim it, she's got considerable power on her own along with an incredibly powerful monster.
  • Meaningful Name: She's named after German film director F. W. Murnau.
  • Non-Action Big Bad: Mainly relies on her minions to do the fighting for her, as while she is fairly strong on her own she's not strong enough to fight Ultras head on and lacks a One-Winged Angel form.

  • Big Bad: Of Ultra Fight Orb.
  • Death by Irony: After having been defeated, he attempts to resurrect Ultraman Belial. After failing, he is promptly killed off by Ultraman Geed, Belial's son, while Geed is in primitive form, which uses Belial's essence alongside the essence of the original Ultraman. Geed retcons this to make it even more ironic, since it's shown to be Belial himself that did the deed.
  • Healing Factor: Thanks to his immortal nature, he can regenerate himself from any damage. However, it depends on how much he can reform, regardless how fatal the damage is.
  • Necromancer: As one of Reionics, he can use any abilities from Alien Rayblood. By chanting "Ujuika Reegamiyo'' note , he can revive a monster or fix the damaged Giga Battle Nizer.

First Appearance: The Sunset Wanderer
The King Demon Beast of Light defeated during the early 1900s by Ultraman Orb when he was in the European nation of Rusalka, where he encountered Natasha. Gai got the original Ultraman's Ultra Fusion Card from it.
See Ultraman

  • Light 'em Up: As the King Demon Beast of Light, Maga-Zetton replaces the original Zetton's fireballs with bolts of explosive light. Presumably, it has the same abilities of the standard Zetton as well, but we only ever see this one on-screen.
  • Light Is Not Good: He's the King Demon Beast of Light, as revealed by Juggler.
  • Mythology Gag: The original Zetton was Ultraman's last and strongest enemy.
  • Sealed Evil in a Can: Prior to being awoken, Ultraman's Ultra Fusion Card kept him at bay.
  • We Hardly Knew Ye: Appeared for the span of the first episode's Cold Opening (and flashbacks featuring said opening).

Maga-Basser

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

First Appearance: The Sunset Wanderer
The King Demon Beast of Wind and the series' first Monster of the Week, having been awoken by Juggler a few months prior to the series, resulting in an erratic change of weather patterns worldwide. Gai got Ultraman Mebius' Ultra Fusion Card from defeating it.
  • Blow You Away: Is the King Demon Beast of the Wind, and is able to summon powerful tornadoes. It can also flap its wings to build up air pressure and release a huge shockwave.
  • Expy: While the kaiju itself has no relation to its sealer, its closest equivalent is possibly Arigera. It also has combined traits from Dexador and ADR-02. However, its design motifs were Melba, Lidorias, and Bemstar.
  • Feathered Fiend: A bird-like King Demon Beast modeled as a hybrid of a dragon and a bird of prey.
  • Giant Flyer: Kaiju bird, natch.
  • Kaiju Hammer Throw: Orb subjugates Maga-Basser to one, allowing him to finish it off.

The King Demon Beast of Earth. It creates powerful seismic tremors in the ground by manipulating Dragon Veins (also known as Ley Lines), causing huge sinkholes to appear all over Tokyo and consume entire skyscrapers. Gai earns Ultraman Taro's Ultra Fusion Card from it.
See Ultraman Taro

  • Art Evolution: This incarnation of Grand King has a darker skin colour compared to its Ultraman Ginga and Ultraman Story counterparts. Aditionally, its head is based on that of the original Grand King, while its body is that of the Ginga version.
  • Chest Blaster: Maga-Grand King's primary combat ability is the Maga-Perforation, a huge laser blast from its chest that is capable of punching a hole clean through a skyscraper. Fortunately, its easily countered by reflective surfaces.
  • Dishing Out Dirt: Is the King Demon Beast of Earth, was sealed underground, and causes massive earthquakes by manipulating Feng Shui.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: Is defeated when Orb reflects its laser back at itself.
  • Ley Line: Or rather Dragon Veins, as they're called in Asian countries in the Feng Shui philosophy. Maga-Grand King is able to control these to cause earthquakes.
  • Mirrors Reflect Everything: Its Maga-Perforation beam is countered by reflective surfaces.
  • Mythology Gag: The original Grand King was defeated by Ultraman Taro in Ultraman Story.
  • Punny Name: The choice behind making a Humongous Mecha a monster of elemental earth was likely because in Japanese "grand" and "ground" are both pronounced as "gurando", meaning he could also be called 'Ground'' King.
  • Sealed Evil in a Can: Prior to being awoken, Taro's Ultra Fusion Card kept it at bay.
  • Shout-Out: A subtle one, but when Maga-Grand King first performs its Maga-Perforation, the scene directly mimics a shot from the Toho movie Dragonhead, and Tsburaya even got special permission from Toho to recreate the moment for the episode.
  • This Is a Drill: Able to spin its massive claws rapidly to use them as energy drills.
  • Tunnel King: As expected for the King Demon Beast of Earth.

Maga-Jappa

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

First Appearance: Monstrous Waters
The King Demon Beast of Water that fouls up water by its very presence, resulting in a local reservoir giving all of Tokyo extremely evil-smelling water. Gai collects Ultraman Jack's Ultra Fusion Card from it.
  • Breath Weapon: A downplayed version of the Deadly Gas variety. While it isn't lethal, it nevertheless has an extremely foul odor.
  • Expy: Its closest parallel among Ultraman Jack's foes is Muruchi, specifically the Zoa variant. It should be noted that Maga-Jappa's suit itself was modified from Zoa Muruchi's suit. Additionally, its design was intended to hybridize traits of Ganza and Tagarl, while its powers have drawn comparisons to Hedorah (incidentally, the episode came out a day after Godzilla vs. Hedorah's 45th anniversary).
  • Invisibility: Briefly displayed this ability, although the terrible stench gave away its position.
  • The Juggernaut: Maga-Jappa was able to shrug off anything Orb threw at him due to his thick hide. Until, that is, Orb went Burnmite.
  • Making a Splash: Is the King Demon Beast of Water, and as such bathes in lakes and spews pressurized streams of polluted water from its snout.
  • Sea Monster: While Maga-Jappa is comfortable in any body of water, its octopus-seahorse design and description in the Pacific Records make it more of a marine kaiju than a freshwater one.
  • Seahorses Are Dragons: Its motif.
  • Sealed Evil in a Can: Prior to being awoken, Jack's Ultra Fusion Card kept it at bay.
  • Vacuum Arms: Can produce a powerful suction force from its arms.
  • Walking Wasteland: Maga-Jappa makes pollutes waters wherever it goes, rendering them unbearable awful to smell or even use.

Maga-Pandon

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

First Appearance: Beware the Fire the Midsummer Sky
The Demon King Beast of Fire who initially appears as a second sun in the sky, creating a searing heat wave over Tokyo. Ultraman Zero's Ultra Fusion Card was added to Gai's collection by defeating it.
See Ultraseven

  • Art Evolution: Its design is a throwback to the original Pandon, after many years of Pandon designs with heads separated by necks. However, its body has more lava-like skin to differentiate it.
  • Breath Weapon: Breathes fire and spits fireballs at enemies, like all incarnations of Pandon.
  • Mythology Gag: Its sealing at the hands of Ultraman Zero references how Zero is the son of the hero who battled the original Pandon.
  • Playing with Fire: Is the King Demon Beast of Fire, and arrives as a massive sun-like fireball.
  • Sealed Evil in a Can: Prior to being awoken, Zero's Ultra Fusion Card kept it at bay.

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/maga_tanozoa.jpg
Maga-Tanozoa's Kaiju Card, also seen in the show
First Appearance: Beware the Fire the Midsummer Sky (as a Monster Card)
The King Demon Beast of Darkness. While it doesn't appear in the show, Gai collected Ultraman Tiga's Ultra Fusion Card from it long ago when he battled the monster in the ancient civilization of Ishtal 4000 years before the TV show's events.
See Ultraman Tiga

  • Casting a Shadow: As the King Demon Beast of Darkness. Word of God states that it can create a massive fog of darkness like that of the original Gatanozoa, but Maga-Tanozoa's is also electrified.
  • Mythology Gag: Gatanozoa was the Big Bad of Ultraman Tiga's series.
  • Posthumous Character: Only seen in Juggler's collection of King Demon Beast cards. However, official concept art for its still exists.
  • Sealed Evil in a Can: Prior to being awoken, Tiga's Ultra Fusion Card kept it at bay.
  • Shock and Awe: Word of God states that Maga-Tanozoa can create electric shockwaves, channel lightning down its tentacles, and has an electrified shadow fog, whereas the original Gatanozoa had no electric powers.

  • Sailor Fuku: Is the subject of one when disguising as a human girl.

Hyper Zetton Deathscythe

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

First Appearance: A Heart That Won't Flee
A more powerful version of Hyper Zetton hidden by Maddock to lure Ultraman Orb into a trap and destroy him. The creature would later reappear when Maddock was resurrected in a new body, this time inexplicably floating in the sky in suspended animation as the alien prepared for his new plans.
See Ultraman Zero

  • Back from the Dead: When Maddock returns, albeit now floating in suspended animation in the sky wherever Maya/Maddock goes.
  • Elite Mook: Hyper Zetton Deatchscythe is a more powerful version of Hyper Zetton (who is already a more powerful version of the original Zetton!). The only differences with the original Hyper Zetton is that Deatchsythe has giant scythe hands and lacks wings.
  • Make My Monster Grow: Maddock shrinks Hyper Zetton Deathscythe to 5 meters in height to hide it inside a factory. Once Orb comes out though, it returns to its original 70 meter height.
  • Playing with Fire: Alongside Zetton/Hyper Zetton's stock power of shooting fireballs from its "face", Hyper Zetton Deathscythe can also shoot fireballs from its "hands".
  • Sinister Scythe: Has scythes in place of its hands.

Aribunta

First Appearance: The Forbidden Forest

  • Ominous Fog: This incarnation of Hoe is associated with it and is able to create the stuff from its neck for stealth attacks.

Ragon Family

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

First Appearance: The Urban Merman
A pair of Ragon, parent and child, who were hiding out in a warehouse after befriending a local fish salesman after being driven from the sea by Gubila's hunger.
See Ultra Q

  • Benevolent Monsters: They don't pose any threat to anyone, only playing harmless pranks on the fisherman who takes care of them.

Gubila

First Appearance: The Urban Merman
A monstrous fish kaiju who comes on land in search of food after eating all the fish in the nearby waters, threatening the Ragon Family and the fishmonger they were living with.
See Ultraman

  • Non-Malicious Monster: It only attacks out of hunger, mostly to try and eat the Ragon child and when Ultraman Orb provokes it. Orb even leads it back to the ocean where it belongs after it has been worn out, instead of killing it.

Alien Babalou Babaryu

First Appearance: The Impostor Blues
A shapeshifting alien hired by the Planet Invasion Union to impersonate Ultraman Orb and betray the humans' trust by attacking them. However, when a real kaiju attacks, he is forced to chase it off and spend some time in a human disguise with some children who idolize him because they think he is Ultraman Orb's secret identity.
See Ultraman Leo

  • Becoming the Mask: Originally assumed Orb's form as a Frame-Up, but after having to fend off Telesdon and being supported by kids, he starts to genuinely want to remain and live as Ultraman Orb, ultimately makes a Heel–Face Turn.
  • Contrived Coincidence: Were it not for a Telesdon suddenly appearing to attack the city, Nostra's plans with Babaryu might have succeeded the first time. His protecting of children from its fire attack was also because he just happened to be in the way.
  • Evil Knockoff: The intention of him becoming an imposter Ultraman Orb, but ultimately ends up Becoming the Mask.
  • Good Feels Good: The reason he ultimately makes a Heel–Face Turn: he genuinely enjoys how it feels to make people happy instead of afraid.
  • Heel–Face Turn: Refuses to attack the kids who have been supporting him, and is nearly killed as a result when Jugglus unleashes a powerful kaiju at him.
  • Master of Disguise: As is expected for an Alien Babalou, he can transform into an Ultraman.
  • Only Known by Their Nickname: He actually made up the name Baba Ryuji when he nearly revealed that he was an Alien Babalou to Jetta and had to do some Verbal Backpedaling, so the kids started calling him "Babaryu".
  • Redemption Earns Life: His boss naturally tries to execute him for his defection, but said defection results in the real Orb coming to his aid and saving his life.

See Ultraman Mebius

Another monster summoned by Juggler to fight Orb. This one was given to him from a Kaiju Card owned by Don Nostra as part of the Planet Invasion Union's scheme to get rid of Juggler and take his King Demon Beast cards.
See Return of Ultraman

Maga-Orochi /Magata no Orochi

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/orochi_9.png

First Appearance: Trouble! Mama's Here (As Magata no Orochi) The Great King Demon Beast Strikes Back
The Great King Demon Beast, whose power surpasses all other King Demon Beasts. It was sealed by the efforts of Zoffy and Tamayura-hime in ancient times, but Juggler revived it in the present with the power of the six King Demon Beast cards. It proved to be an enemy so powerful that Gai had to use Thunder Breatser Mode for the first time, but even after its defeat, the mightiest of the King Demon Beasts would soon turn out to be Not Quite Dead...
  • All Your Powers Combined: His final form, Magata no Orochi has the combined powers of all the King Demon Beasts.
    • Blow You Away: Has Maga-Basser's tornado generating ability.
    • Combat Tentacles: Can extend tentacles from all over its body, which is confirmed to come from the unseen Maga-Tanozoa.
    • Dishing Out Dirt: Causes earthquakes just like Maga-Grand King.
    • Frickin' Laser Beams: Has Maga-Grand King's Maga-Perforation laser, which is what it uses to win its first fight with Orb.
    • Light 'em Up: Can use Maga-Zetton's Maga Light Bullets.
    • Playing with Fire: Can use Maga-Pandon's fireballs. He also generated a heat wave like Maga-Pandon coming up to his reemergence.
  • Armless Biped: Its Magata form doesn't have arms, and uses two additional heads instead.
  • An Arm and a Leg: As a sign of how savage Thunder Breaster!Orb fights, Orb hacks off Maga-Orochi's tail
  • Attack Its Weak Point: The only way Orb and Juggular was able to do any form of damage to Magata no Orochi was thanks to SSP finding a weak point and VTL showing it for the giants to exploit. It was a weak point caused when Maga-Orochi crushed the holy tree with his body all those episodes back, which prevented some of its essence from reforming properly and left an opening in its armor.
  • Breath Weapon: Maga-Orochi spews streams of electricity from its mouth that are powerful enough to blast Orb off of his feet. It gets an even stronger one in its final form, along with Maga-Jappa's and any others the rest of its components had.
  • Eldritch Abomination: His final form is one of the most Lovecraftian, D-Reaper-esque monstrosities in the entire franchise, on top of the fact it was already a Planet Eater that's devoured countless worlds. His mere awakening causes aliens and what monsters can to flee in mass, and underground monsters to just die off.
  • Energy Absorption: It's final form is capable of this and eats Orb's Orb Supreme Calibur finisher.
  • Healing Factor: It even regenerated from Orb Burnmite's Stobium Dynamite!
  • Holy Burns Evil: Its final form is only able to be destroyed because a holy tree blocked a portion of its energy from going into the ground, leaving a gap in its otherwise indestructible hide that Orb and Juggler exploit to finally kill it.
  • The Juggernaut: Nothing less than Orb's Thunder Breaster form is capable of hurting it. In it's true Maga-Tano Orochi form, even that can't make it so much as flinch and it straight up eats Orb Origin's Orb Supreme Calibur attack. It only has one vulnerability that resulted from the holy tree blocking some of its essence and preventing it from properly reforming, leaving a gap in its armor.
  • Made of Iron: Maga-Orochi is sturdy enough to No-Sell most of Orb's finishing moves until Gai obtains the Thunder Breaster form. It gets an even stronger iron hide when it matures to Magata no Orochi. Nothing Orb did could scratch it. Its one weakness is a portion of its body which, due to its essence being blocked by the holy tree, didn't reform properly and left an opening in its armor.
  • Multiple Head Case: Despite what it's named after, it only has one head because it's in it's larval stage. It's adult form has multiple heads.
  • One-Winged Angel: Turns out that his life energy entered the ground upon death and was incubating beneath the city. In episode 24 as the much stronger Maga-Tano Orochi.
  • Orochi: Based off the legend, and in universe was implied to have inspired it. It's final form even has multiple heads.
  • Planet Eater: According to Juggler, this thing devoured countless worlds before it was finally imprisoned on Earth. It begins doing just this when it revives in it's adult form.
  • Sealed Evil in a Can: It was trapped underground by Tamayura-hime, and further sealed by Zoffy's Ultra Fusion Card. Juggler's ultimate goal is to release it, which he eventually succeeds in.
  • Shock and Awe: Uses electricity prominently in its attacks, such as delivering electricity through contact and breathing lightning.
  • Superpower Lottery: Magata no Orochi has all its original powers, plus the combined powers of all of the King Demon Beasts, and a few powers unique to this form (including Energy Absorption). This gives it a LOT of powers to throw around, and due to the multiple places it can fire from, often at once.
  • Walking Spoiler: Let's just say Maga-Orochi hasn't reached his fullest potential when Orb first battles him...
  • Worf Had the Flu: When Orb defeated him, he was in his 'larval' stage. He returns in episode 24 in his much stronger adult form.

Galactron

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

First Appearance: Rampage of Justice
A Humongous Mecha appearing from another dimension. It initially appears to be on a mission of peace, but upon assimilating Naomi it becomes obvious that its "peace" involves attempting to Kill All Humans and destroy nature to eliminate all conflict. The robot later reappears in The Movie in Hawaii under the control of Mulnau, where it battles Orb at start of the story, but is soon destroyed.

Galactron has proven to be a fairly popular monster, as it makes a number of reappearances afterwards, including in the followup series Ultraman Geed.


  • A.I. Is a Crapshoot: Its creators built it as an instrument of peace, but Galactron decided the best course of action for bringing peace was to kill all living beings, so they tossed it into another dimension.
  • An Arm and a Leg: Just like Maga-Orochi, when Orb went Thunder Breaster, Galactron found itself being torn apart.
  • Arm Cannon: Can fire one from the same fist it uses its Rocket Punch if the latter ability has been used.
  • Back from the Dead: Mulnau reconstructs it at the beginning of The Movie.
  • Barrier Warrior: Galactron can create a shield of energy with its hands.
  • Blade Below the Shoulder: Has a huge energy sword built into its left hand that impales Ultraman Orb. Oh, and it shoots lasers.
  • Chest Blaster: The Galctron Spark, a huge laser cannon of devastating power.
    • Taken for Granite: Mulnau upgrades the Galactron Spark to turn its targets into crystal.
  • Enemy Scan: Performs one on Orb, allowing it to figure out how to overpower him.
  • Eye Beams: Its main weapon. They create rings of energy at a targeted location before erupting into massive explosions.
  • Humongous Mecha: Obviously.
  • The Juggernaut: So powerful that orb had to use Thunder Breaster again in order to defeat it.
  • Meaningful Name: A combination of two of its proposed names: Galaxy Dragon and Salvatron.
  • Prehensile Hair: Not true hair, but Galactron possesses a large cluster of braided wires it can use to grab enemies.
  • Rocket Punch: Galactron is able to fire its left arm as a missile.
  • Shock and Awe: Its Rocket Punch can shoot lightning bolts, though they didn't do much against Orb Thunder Breastar.
  • Tractor Beam: Its chest can fire one, which it uses to capture Naomi and assimilate her mind in order to understand Earth and determine the right course of action in dealing with the planet and its inhabitants.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: Its purpose was to bring peace to universe, but it believes peace can only be achieved by killing all creatures to prevent conflicts from ever starting in the first place.

Zeppandon

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

First Appearance: An Unforgettable Place
A hybrid of Zetton and Pandon created by Juggler from combining their cards. He used this monster in an attempt to force Gai to use Thunder Breaster again, hoping that one last taste of its immense powers would draw him into darkness. The monster then reappears in The Movie where Juggler uses it to battle Deavorick, Alien Temperor Batistsa, and Alien Hipporito Callisto.
  • Attack Reflector: Inherited from Zetton, except Zeppandon returns fire with its force field.
  • Barrier Warrior: Like Zetton, it can produce a force field.
  • Breath Weapon: Shoots fireballs and electricity from its mouth. Additionally, the vestigial Pandon heads are able to spit purple bolts of energy.
  • Hybrid Monster: Of the two final opponents in their respective series, as well as Maga-Orochi's tail
  • The Juggernaut: To an even larger degree than Maga-Orochi. It literally catches and eats Orb's energy cutter.
  • Playing with Fire: Primarily uses its fireballs to attack, like its two component monsters. It can also intensify its own body heat, so when Orb's Slugger Lance made contact with it, the heat traveled up his weapon and forced him to let go.
  • Shock and Awe: Fires electricity with its fireballs to increase the destructive effect of its attacks.
  • Teleport Spam: Borrowed from Zetton.

Alien Shaplay Katarohi

Portrayed by: Shota Yamamoto (voice), Takaya Inoue (human form)

First Appearance: Hard Boiled Liver
An alien criminal who collected the life forces of women by selling them Slimtonium jewelry under the form of a salesman named Takahiro. His plan was to use the collected life energy to empower his Bemular.
See Ultraseven

  • Power Crystal: Was selling these. He claims these Slimtonium crystals help with weight loss, but in reality, they steal life energy which he can use to empower other beings, namely Bemular.

Empowered Bemular

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

First Appearance: Hard Boiled Liver
A more powerful version of Bemular, with two horns summoned by Alien Shaplay's life-filled Slimtonium jewels.
See Ultraman

  • Achilles' Heel: Ironically, Empowered Bemular's horns are this, status-wise at least. Get rid of them, and you basically revert it to a normal Bemular.
  • Art Evolution: While the horns are simply a result of Bemular's empowerment, the monster's spines are now a more bluish color.
  • Energy Absorption: Empowered Bemular is able to absorb an Ultra Beam thanks to the horns.

Gurenki

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

First Appearance: The Demon Inside Me
An updated version of a monster from Ultraman Cosmos, Gurenki is a vengeful spirit that envies happy couples born from a love-lost couple from the Sengoku period that was sealed away inside a wishing stone for married couples, only to be freed in the present by Naomi's jealousy for her friend getting married.
See Ultraman Cosmos

  • Art Evolution: Renki is given a drastic visual update here, now donning a suit of red samurai armor and a somewhat more robotic appearance. Also, the mask, hair, and arrows stuck in his body are now removed.
  • Blade Time: Gurenki was able to do this on Orb Hurricane Slash's Trident Slash.
  • Heel Realization: Has one when Naomi asks if all those years he granted couples romantic fortune he never had in life meant something to him. It turns out it did.
  • Lightning Bruiser: Hits like a truck and can move like a Formula One racer, and is the first to give Orb Origin one hell of a fight.
  • Master Swordsman: Shows off its swordsmanship by standing toe-on-toe with the Orbcalibur.
  • Meaningful Name: Gurekni means "Crimson Lotus Knight" in Japanese, playing upon the original Renki's name meaning "Love-Demon".
  • Mercy Kill: Allows Orb to exorcise it with the Orb Water Calibur, purifying him into a rainbow.
  • Near-Villain Victory: One of the few Kaiju able to go toe-to-toe with Orb Origin form without breaking a sweat. If not for its last minute Heel Realization, it probably would've effortlessly killed Naomi's friend, and probably Orb himself.
  • Our Demons Are Different: Is a demon born from the envy and hate of a pair of Star-Crossed Lovers.
  • Sealed Evil in a Can: Was imprisoned by a monk inside the wishing stone until Naomi accidentally releases him.
  • Super Speed: Briefly displayed this ability while dueling with Orb.

Commander Black

Portrayed by: Soichiro Akaboshi

First Appearance: The Unmarked Cafe

See Ultraman Leo

  • Adaptational Heroism: The original Commander Black was a monstrous piece of work, and dies in the finale. This version, while still trying to take over the world, is much more friendly and retired from being a supervillain long ago. He also doesn't die like his original incarnation.
  • Chef of Iron: Makes delicious coffee and ramen, but is also a retired alien conqueror.
  • Friendly Enemy: Is friends with Gai/Orb despite being a retired alien invader. Even when he briefly comes out of retirement, he holds no ill will towards him and seemed to just want one last fight before retiring for good.
  • Heel–Face Turn: Used to want to take over the Earth, now he makes coffee and later on ramen.
  • Retired Monster: Sincerely wishes he is this. In the past he considered conquering the Earth his dream, but now just runs an alien coffee shop. When Nova goes on the rampage, he goes along with it, but ultimately has no ill will towards anyone and genuinely did enjoy being a coffee shop owner. After Nova's destroyed, he opens a ramen shop.
  • Supreme Chef: Both his coffee and ramen are apparently immensely delicious.
  • They Don't Make Them Like They Used To: Is of this opinion about Kaiju, feeling monsters today are 'too busy' and prefers Simple, yet Awesome kaiju like Nova.
  • Truce Zone: His establishments. When an alien tries to pick a fight with Orb, he tells them to take it outside because conflicts between good and evil aren't allowed.

Nova

First Appearance: The Unmarked Cafe
Commander Black's monster companion, usually disguised as a red Teru Teru Bozu the retired alien conqueror keeps around his coffee shop as a good luck charm. But as Earth's secret alien population begins fleeing the planet due to sensing a dire evil, Nova sees one last opportunity for Commander Black to seize Earth.
See Ultraman Leo

First Appearance: Ultraman Orb The Movie: Lend Me the Power of Bonds!
Mulnau's bodyguard. Sadeath had encountered and been defeated by Gai thousands of years ago when Ultraman Orb was on Planet Ganun Api. Then he had been in the service of a different villain, but now working with Mulnau, he is eager for a rematch.
  • Affably Evil: For a bloodthirsty warrior who enjoys fighting for the sheer sake of it, he's also quite cheery and friendly with his enemies.
  • Arm Cannon: The Gapiya Snake mounted on his right arm.
  • Barrier Warrior: Can make a small force field to block attacks.
  • Blood Knight: Oh yeah, he loves fighting. He loves it to the point where he applauds his own death as being awesome.
  • Cyborg: Due to the fact that his last battle with Orb ended with him being thrown into a volcano, he is now outfitted with various mechanical parts.
  • The Dragon: To Mulnau, he shares the role with Juggler, Callisto, Batista and Doppel but used to serve as one in Chapter 2-3 towards an evil aristocrat named Count Orlock.
  • From a Single Cell: Regenerates from being blown to pieces at one point.
  • Graceful Loser: Shows excitement in his final moments raising two thumbs up towards Orb before perishing.
  • Gratuitous English: Its subtle but he injects some of it in his speech.
  • Half the Man He Used to Be: Dies this way, although Sadeath only explodes instead of literally splitting into half.
  • Healing Factor: Sadeath can regenerate or reconstitute from most wounds, but Orb's Trinitium Kourin puts him down for good.
  • It's Personal: Treats his fight with Ultraman Orb as a revenge for his defeat back in Chapter 2-3 after surviving from a fall into a volcano.
  • Large Ham: Boy he is.
  • Master Swordsman: Uses his personal sword the Sadestein for melee combat.
  • Names to Run Away from Really Fast: His name is a combination of "sadist" and "death" to form a pun on the Japanese word for "discrimination" (sabetsu).
  • Sword and Gun: Uses the Sadestein sword in combat but also has an arm mounted Gapiya Snake on his right arm.
  • This Cannot Be!: One half of his Famous Last Words.
    Sadeath: "Impossible! But that's awesome!!"
  • Too Kinky to Torture: Apparently he do have some sense of pain but seemingly shows no discomfort of being defeated by Orb.
  • We Can Rebuild Him: Survived a fall into a volcano before he was remodeled into a Cyborg, and since then can resurrect himself by reforming his scattered body parts.

Deavorick

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ultraman_orb_deavorick_render_by_zer0stylinx_dbywcrm.png

First Appearance: Ultraman Orb The Movie: Lend Me the Power of Bonds!
An enormous mechanical kaiju created by Mulnau with Juggler's Dark Ring. The cyborg abomination's entire purpose was to turn the entire Earth into crystal, and create as much chaos and destruction as physically possible in the process, acting as the most powerful of the space witch's minions.
  • Achilles' Heel: If the Dark Ring were to be banished, victims of Deavorick's petrifaction would be cured. So Juggler did just that.
  • Arm Cannon: Its left arm is a machine gun and its right arm is a laser cannon that turns its targets into crystal.
  • Beam Spam: Deavorick's body has hundreds of lasers cannons that shoot two types of beams — blue ones fired in random directions, and red ones that are directed at targets. They're typically fired all at once.
  • BFG: In addition to a variety of them strapped to his body, he has a mouth mounted one called the "Deavorick Cannon" that requires him to allow Sadeath to link up with him to lock on to the target and pull the trigger.
  • Cyborg: Was born this way.
  • Half the Man He Used to Be: Dies after being sliced by Trinitium Kourin.
  • Homing Lasers: The red lasers fired from its Beam Spam do this.
  • The Juggernaut: Highly, highly, highly resilient to almost every attack the Ultra heroes throw at it.
  • More Dakka: Firing his weapons indiscriminately in all directions is what Deavorick was quite literally made for.
  • Taken for Granite: Crystallizes the entire town and according to Mulnau, can do the same thing on a planetary scale.
  • Wave Motion Gun: Deavorick's most powerful ability is the Deavorick Cannon, a hidden laser cannon in its mouth that fires a massive, super-powerful energy beam capable of smashing straight through a force field.
