Tri Squad

     In General 
Fuma: Even if we come from different planets...
Titas: We share the same common goal.
Taiga: For we are...
All three: The Tri-Squad!

A trio of Ultramen, each from different backgrounds and with different strengths. They consist of Ultraman Taiga from the Land of Light in Nebula M78, Ultraman Titas from Planet U-40, and Ultraman Fuma from Planet O-50. These inseparable companions have worked together for years, and their primary goal is to dedicate their combined power to fight for and protect peace on Earth.


  • But Now I Must Go: After Tregear and Grimdo's destruction in New Generation Climax, they part ways with Hiroyuki and company once finished of their duties on earth.
  • The Chosen One: So far, only two out of three can be consider this:
    • If one were to watch The Ultraman anime, Ultras of U40 are as tall as normal humans and can only become as large as a Kaiju if they wore Star Symbols (their people's equivalent to normal Ultras' Color Timer). Only eight of them exist to be worn by eight qualified warriors. Titas however was chosen by the Great Sage and given a blue colored Star Symbol as opposed to the great 8 warriors, but this alone cemented the fact that he's on equal terms with the great 8.
    • Fuma comes from Planet O-50 like Ultraman Orb, Rosso and Blu, which means that he is one of the chosen warriors who had climbed up to the top of Warrior's Peak.
  • Foil: To the Ultimate Force Zero: both are actually Ragtag Bunch of Misfits from different point of origin and are also LegacyCharacters but whereas Zero's teammates are those from different works of Tsuburaya Productions, the Tri-Squad are from Ultra Series that featured different point of origin for the Ultras (Land of Light, U40, O-50).
  • I Am Not My Father: All three Tri-Squad members have issues with their fathers and each wanted to step out of it as they develop their identities.
    • As a youth in the Land of Light, Taiga hates living under the shadow of his father's popularity and strives to become different, which leads to him seeking comfort under an older Ultra, Firis. At the end of the series, he finally proclaims himself as son of Taro.
    • Titas is the son of a pair of Hellar Armies who wanted their child to be exempted from joining them, which gives him insecurities about his point of origin until he transformed for the first time.
    • Fuma was the son of an O-50 mountain climber who gave up midway and lived for the rest of his life haunted by his father's failure. After becoming an Ultraman and discovering his adventures chronicled by a young girl, he decided to adopt the title Champion of the Wind, which is a departure from how he was called as "the loser's son".
  • Multiform Balance: Played With. The three Ultras act like this instead of the titular Ultra changing forms.
  • Power Copying: With the Taiga Spark, they can augment their finishers with the previous New Generation Heroes' powers.
  • Power Trio: Three Ultramen share the same host (Hiroyuki) and forms a team named Tri Squad.
  • True Companions: Just like their creed above shows, even if they are born from different planets, they always fight together, through thick or thin.

    Ultraman Taiga 

Ultraman Taiga

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

Portrayed by: Takuma Terashima (voice)

The titular hero of the series and the son of Ultraman Taro, who once protected the Earth. Deep inside, he wishes his father Taro to understand and recognize him, but he cannot admit his true feelings. He has a strong sense of justice and is very enthusiastic. Along with Titas and Fuma, he founded the “Tri Squad”. Although still young and unskilled, he is dedicated in his mission to protect Earth.

Together with Hiroyuki, he grows to become a true Ultraman.


  • A Child Shall Lead Them: While the Tri-Squad lacks a definitive leader, Taiga sees himself as one despite being younger than the other two members and is an Ultra equivalent to a high school freshman (15-16 years old).
  • Badass Family: Taiga is the son of Ultraman Taro which makes him the grandson of Father of Ultra and Mother of Ultra, adopted nephew/first cousin once removed of Ultraman Ace and Ultraseven, and he's second cousins with Ultraman Zero.
  • Cerebus Retcon: Taiga using both the New Generation Heroes' Bracelets and Kaiju Rings as his arsenal, later on gaining Photon Earth may seemed like a blatant Protagonist Power-Up Privileges. However, episode 15 revealed that Tregear was trying to corrupt Taiga through prolonged use of the Kaiju Rings, thus brainwashing the young Ultra at the moment where he is at his strongest.
  • Contrasting Sequel Main Character: To Ultraman Zero, of all people. They're both children of an Ultra Brother member, but Zero is a cocky and rebellious child due to an implied Parental Abandonment from his previously unseen father, while Taiga is raised by Taro but has inferiority complex issue as a result of being constantly compared to each other. Zero is already an Ultra with a strong potential and requires training/isolation to discipline himself, allowing him to take on Belial and save his planet. Taiga on the other hand is stated by extracanonical sources as an trained, but inexperienced warrior and failed to even defeat Tregear in his first encounter.
  • Cool Sword: The Taiga Tri-Blade, a flame-like sword and Transformation Trinket to Hiroyuki who can transform into Taiga Tri-Strium.
  • Drunk on the Dark Side: Aside from being Tregear's mindless puppet, Hiroyuki gets a good look at his tainted soul where Taiga went drunk with power and was quick to reject his former human host. It took a single punch from Hiroyuki to bring him to his senses.
  • Finishing Move:
    • Strium Blaster, Similar to his father's Storium Ray, Taiga's beam is fired from a "T" style, but with mirrored position. It is fired from the Taiga Spark. It also have different variations scanning with the Bracelets on the Taiga Spark:
      • Supreme Blaster: By scanning the Orb-let, Taiga's Strium Blaster is enhanced in energy of light resembling Orb Origin's Supreme Calibur.
      • Flame Blaster: By scanning the Rosso-let, Taiga's Strium Blaster is enhanced in flame energy.
      • Aqua Blaster: By Scanning the Blu-let, Taiga's Strium Blaster is enhanced in water energy.
    • Aurum Strium: In Photon Earth form, Taiga's enhanced finisher beam, where he summons a golden aurora to charge up and fire a golden beam from the Taiga Spark.
  • Foreshadowing: Taiga gets called by Ai Tennoji in episode 8 as Aka Oni (meaning "red devil"), a nickname which he finds irritating. Remember that this series has another evil Ultraman named Tregear, who embraced the title of the devil after his Face–Heel Turn. Three guesses as to what happened to Taiga in the mid-season.
  • Fusion Dance: Taiga Tri-Strium is a combination form between the bonds of Taiga, Titas, Fuma and Hiroyuki.
  • Golden Super Mode: Photon Earth, which gives him the power of Earth and Sun.
  • Jack-of-All-Stats: Despite his inexperience, Taiga is said to be a balanced fighter.
  • Kid Hero: His age is 4,800, which makes him around 15-16 years old in terms of human standard.
  • Kirk Summation: Delivers this to Tregear in the Final Battle against the fallen Ultra. Tregear refuses to listen, but at least he tried.
    Taiga: That would have been impossible only with my own power. It was the power of light from both of us Ultramen that saved that monster's heart. No matter how much you deny it...you are an Ultraman; something that exists to protect the light! Weren't you my father's friend who left the Land of Light? You can become a guardian of light once more!
  • Horned Humanoid: The Ultra Horns, courtesy of his grandfather's line.
  • Mid-Season Upgrade: See Golden Super Mode above.
  • Mythology Gag: Episode 16 confirmed that Taro was the one who gave Taiga his Taiga Spark. Flash back to year 2006, the Father of Ultra was the one who give Ultraman Mebius his Mebius Brace, alongside choosing the rookie Ultraman as the next protector of Earth.
  • Non-Standard Character Design: Even from the Father of Ultra's lineage, Taiga is the first to have his silver coloration dominating most of his color scheme and the fact that his horns are shorter than his predecessors, even to the point of leaning 45 degree backwards.
  • Power Copying: Like all Tri-Squad members, Taiga can use the power of past Ultramen, but other than that, he also uses the power of Kaiju Rings for his own. As shown, Hellberus' Hell Slash, Galactron MK 2's Mons Beam Ray, Segmeger's Seger Flame, Night Fang's Fang Wave Gigadelos' Delos Illusion and lastly, Gorothunder's Thunder Spark. Unfortunately for him, he learns the hard way not to use too much of the Kaiju Rings.
  • Red Baron: His title is the "Hero of Light". As Photon Earth and Tri-Strium, he was called as the "Hero of Earth and Sky" and "Hero of Bonds".
  • Rookie Red Ranger: Taiga is actually very young inexperienced in battle but is dedicated in his mission to protect Earth. To note, he's even younger than Ultraman Zero.
  • Shared Family Quirks: Can perform somersaults and spinning jumps like his father, Taro.
  • "Well Done, Son!" Guy: He longs for his father's approval, but at the same time wants to do things on his own, so that he would not be overshadowed by Taro's popularity.

    Ultraman Titas 

Ultraman Titas

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/titus3.png

Portrayed by: Satoshi Hino (voice)

Ultraman Titas is the second Ultra Warrior that dwells inside Hiroyuki. He is a warrior and a sage from Planet U40, the birthplace of Ultraman Joneus, as opposed to the Land of Light in Nebula M78. With his carefully trained body and healthy spirit, he is skilled in heavyweight battles.


  • Anti-Antichrist: The reason why Titas has a black coloration than his kind: his birth parents are soldiers of Heller Army, the traitorous faction which splits from U40 after discarding their Ultramen forms for a lifelong immortality. Titas' father puts him in the care of a U40 commander but Titas can freely shift into his Ultraman form despite his family lineage. His fellow Tri-Squad members lampshaded his origin to Ultraman Geed, the Ultra whose bracelet is also part of Titas' powers.
  • Badass Baritone: Courtesy of Satoshi Hino.
  • Badass Bookworm: Aside from his muscles, the voice drama revealed that Titas is well informed in the Earth culture, since he studied it on his home planet. The series played it further by revealing that he also knows the legend of Gorothunder like the rest of the Tri-Squad and Woola's existence, ultimately leading to Pirika's true identity.
  • Big Damn Heroes: He saves Taiga and the Earth from the wrath of a deceased astronaut in his debut appearance.
  • The Big Guy: It's obvious when you see his body built.
  • Dark Is Not Evil: His body may be predominantly black with red linings that makes him similar to Ultraman Belial but like Ultraman Orb Thunder Breastar, he's a good guy through and through. The audio drama however reveals that there's a reason for his black coloration.
  • Finishing Move:
    • Planium Buster, he charges a green energy orb before punching it to the opponent. It is almost a recreation of the second variation of Joneus' Planium Ray.
      • Wrecking Buster: By scanning the Geed-let, Titas' Planium Buster is enhanced in dark energy reminiscent of Geed's Wrecking Burst.
      • Electro Buster: By scanning the X-let, Titas' Planium Buster is enhanced in green electric energy before forming his arms in "X" position to push it, reminiscing X's Xanadium Ray.
  • Jumped at the Call: Whereas Tregear grants the deceased astronaut his wish for revenge, Titas granted the spirit of said astronaut's wife to be reunited with her husband. This allows Titas to return to Earth and join Taiga in the fight against Galactron MK 2.
  • Lovable Jock: He may be obsessive with maintaining his body build but Titas is easily recognized as the nicest member of the Tri-Squad.
  • Meaningful Name: Titas' name may have been derived from "Titus", which can be interpreted as "Title of Honor" according to Biblical Latin. Though, it could also come from the term "titan" (タイタン Taitan), meaning a person of great strength or size.
  • Mighty Glacier: He's the closest equivalent to a Heisei Ultraman's red colored brute strength forms.
  • Muggle Foster Parents: Titas may be a descendant of a traitor, but he's neither a copy of his parent(s) because of his background being raised by Mattia and Zamias, both are his adopted family members but treat him as a genuine one.
  • Mythology Gag: He's The Big Guy of the team and is visibly muscular. In The Ultraman his fellow U40 brethren Joneus was sent to protect Earth because he was declared as the strongest of the eight chosen warriors.
  • Non-Standard Character Design:
    • Even from the standard of U40 Ultramen, Titas stands out for having silver parts for his shoulder, glove and leg armors, as well as the black colored body, and having blue eyes instead of standard yellow eyes. His body built being ridiculously muscular also counted for, since even the strongest like Joneus has a slender body.
    • In addition, despite having a Star Symbol, Titas stands only at 50m instead of the 70m height as seen by his fellow U40 Ultramen, possibly he opted not to grow to that size.
  • Odd Name Out: Titas stands out by being named after a Greek word instead of a Japanese name like Taiga and Fuma.
  • Pec Flex: He does this before most of his battles to intimidate kaijus and aliens. Especially notable in his debut in Episode 2, right before facing Galactron.
  • Proud Warrior Race Guy: His pride is not to himself, but to the planet he's raised on (U40) and insulting it or anything that symbolizes his planet is his Berserk Button.
  • Punched Across the Room: His punches tends to result in kaijus being punched across the city. Alien Gapiya tries to block him with a Punch Parry, and ends up landing at the edge of a lake a hundred miles away.
  • Red Baron: His title is "Sage of Power".
  • Upbringing Makes the Hero: Contrary to his parents (Heller Army members), Titas' background makes him one of the strongest warriors in U40, both physically and mentally self control. This granted him the title of a "sage" and even the Star Symbol from the Great Sage.
  • Warrior Monk: A sage from U40.

    Ultraman Fuma 

Ultraman Fuma

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/fuma3.png

Portrayed by: Shota Hayama (voice)

He is the third Ultra Warrior that dwells inside Hiroyuki. Ultraman Fuma is from Planet O-50, the planet where both Ultraman Orb and Ultra brothers Rosso and Blu acquired the power to become Warriors of Light. He has quick reflexes and various techniques that make him strong in battles that require speed. He has a rough personality, but also a strong sense of duty.


  • Blue Is Heroic: His main color is blue.
  • Finishing Move:
    • Polar Star Light Wave Shuriken, he charges a giant energy shuriken and flings it to the opponent.
      • Seven Stars Light Wave Shuriken: By scanning the Ginga-let, Fuma can unleash to projectiles of Polar Star Light Wave Shuriken, both are multi-colored based on the seven colors of rainbow.
      • Sharp Star Light Wave Shuriken: By scanning the Victory-let, Fuma's Polar Star Light Wave Shuriken becomes the construct of a V-shaped energy bow ready to be launched at the target.
  • Flash Step: Fitting to his motif as a ninja, he can accelerate so that his movements appear to be blurs and also capable of creating afterimages of his own.
  • Fragile Speedster: Fuma is described to be adept in close combat and speed-based techniques.
  • Fuuma Shuriken: His "Light Wave Shuriken" attacks and its variations.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Fuma may be snarky, but his kindness isn't one that goes unnoticed.
  • Loser Son of Loser Dad: Previously, Fuma lives under the notoriety of his father's failed legacy to climb to the top of O-50's mountain peak. By the time he becomes an Ultraman, he resort to embrace the title of "Champion of the Wind".
  • The Nicknamer: Fuma sometimes referring his friends as "big bro".
  • Ninja: Has this as his theme. Made more obvious when you see that some of his attacks revolve around using shuriken.
  • Non-Standard Character Design: Fuma isn't a dark blue like Agul and Hikari or normal blue like Cosmos and Zero. He's what can be considered as light blue/cyan, which is a contrast to past Ultras with aforementioned color. Additionally whereas O-50 Ultramen have dominant black and silver colors, Fuma's light blue is the most dominant part with black linings being the minority.
  • Red Baron: His title is "Champion of the Wind".
  • Shout-Out: His status as a ninja and his name seems to be one for Fuuma Kotaro, a famous ninja in the Sengoku Period of Japan.
  • Street Urchin: Before becoming an Ultraman, Fuma was a young humanoid boy whose father is a climber that gave up halfway to the peak of O-50. Fuma had been living on the streets since he was a child, scamming others of their money and is implied to have been disowned by his father.
  • Was Once a Man: Like all of O-50's chosen Ultramen, he was a human before being given his powers. His flashback reveals that unlike Orb, Rosso and Blu, Fuma was implied to have been an Ultraman at a teen age.
  • Whip It Good: Utilizes an energy variation in episode 11.

Other Ultra Warriors

    New Generation Heroes 

A group of Ultramen debuted after Ultraman Zero related medias. 12 years prior to the series, they faced against Ultra Dark-Killer when he plans to assemble an army of fake Ultraman and his group, League of Darkness. After the fight, they faced against Tregear near the Land of Light but was defeated easily. They gave the Tri Squad their lights as a parting gift.

The team returns in the upcoming Ultraman Taiga The Movie: New Generation Climax to protect Hiroyuki from a mysterious threat that was sent to attack him.

Hikaru Raido/Ultraman Ginga

Portrayed by: Takuya Negishi (Japanese), Peter Von Gomm (English; voice)

An Ultraman from an unknown future who was once one entity with Dark Lugiel.

For tropes applying to him in general, see the character sheet for Ultraman Ginga.


  • Action Bomb: Once all of the New Generation Heroes supply him with theur energy, Ginga Strium performs New Generation Dynamite as the final blow in against Ultra Dark-Killer.
  • All Your Powers Combined: See above
  • A Day in the Limelight: Ultra Galaxy Fight supposedly features the entire New Generation Heroes of Heisei Era getting their fair share of focus, but according to director Koichi Sakamoto, Ginga is the intended protagonist of the miniseries.
  • Big Damn Heroes: Rescued the heavily drained X and Geed in Planet Sundowin from Dark Lugiel in order to have the entire New Generation Heroes assembled.
  • Break Out the Museum Piece: The last time Ginga utilizes Ginga Strium was back in 2014, after his final battle with Vict Lugiel. Taro gives him access to this form once more in the final battle against Dark-Killer.
  • The Leader: Per Word of God, yes, Ultraman Ginga (or his human host, Hikaru, depending on how you see him) is the leading man of the New Generation Heroes despite Gai/Ultraman Orb being the older and wiser of the team.
  • Passing the Torch: Leads the other New Generation Ultraman in doing this to the Tri-Squad.
  • Stock Shōnen Hero: According to Koichi Sakamoto, Hikaru is this since his debut in Ultraman Ginga, but Galaxy Fight takes this trope to a T when he leads the New Generation Heroes in against League of Darkness.

Shou/Ultraman Victory

Portrayed by: Kiyotaka Uji (Japanese), Michael Jose Rivas-Micoud (English; voice)

An ancient Ultra born from the power of the Victorium Stone and Ginga's partner.

For tropes applying to him in general, see the character sheet for Ultraman Ginga.


  • Big Damn Heroes: Quickly bails Orb away from O-50 when X and Geed Darkness steals his light energy to create his own Evil Knockoff. Its also thanks to Victory's involvement that Orb Darkness was created as an Imperfect Ritual.
  • Continuity Nod: Victory recalls another sibling pair Ultramen duo, the Leo Brothers and recommended Rosso and Blu to be trained by them.
  • What the Hell, Hero?: A downplayed example; he chastised Rosso and Blu for quickly going out to save Grigio without any forms of preparation beforehand, which leads to their encounter with Etelgar.

Daichi Ozora/Ultraman X

Portrayed by: Kensuke Takahashi (Japanese), Mark Stein (English; voice)

An Ultra from space who merges with Daichi Ozora as his host to combat against monster threats. While not in transformed state, he resides in the X Devizer.

For tropes applying to him in general, see the character sheet for Ultraman X.


  • Badass in Distress: He was originally this with Geed at the start of Galaxy Fight after Dark-Killer drain their energies to create their Darkness copies and left Lugiel to finish them on Planet Sundowin before Ginga bails them out.
  • Break Out the Museum Piece: The miniseries features X fighting with all MonsArmors he had up to that point, but what actually takes the cake was his use of Ultraman Zero Armor and even the Beta Spark Armor after its final appearance 3 years ago in X's feature movie.
  • Not Himself: The miniseries make it obvious that X is in the same case like Ginga, where he appears only as a living shell for his human host (Daichi) to communicate. It becomes apparent that not even Yuuichi Nakamura returned in any capacity as a voice actor or stock voice.

Gai Kurenai/Ultraman Orb

Portrayed by: Hideo Ishiguro (Japanese), Chris Wells (English; voice)

A vagabond Ultraman with a unique ability to fuse two different Ultras into one unique form.

Katsumi Minato/Ultraman Rosso

Portrayed by: Yuya Hirata (Japanese), Jeff Manning (English; voice)

Ultraman Rosso is the elder brother of the pair of Ultramen who had come to Earth centuries ago to defeat the monster Grigio Bone only to be defeated and scattered into the many R/B Crystals the Minato brothers must collect. He naturally wields the power of fire.

For tropes applying to him in general, see the character sheet for Ultraman R/B.


  • The Call Knows Where You Live: In the receiving end; he was teleported from Milan, Italy to the Land of Light, transformed into his Ultraman form once he get there.
  • Double Take: Instantly after being teleported to the Land of Light, the brothers made their usual fist bump, but quickly came to their senses when they realized where they are, less when remembering how each others are supposed to be in different countries altogether.
  • Idiot Ball: No pun intended because of his tendency to use spherical attacks. While supposedly the more mature and sensible of the pair, Rosso and Blu quickly flies to outer space to save Grigio, without even knowing where or how to save her. Of course, Ribut and Victory are understandably irritated by their hasty decision. If Rosso was in his original series, he would have been the one to formulate plans on how to act or even analyzing the gravity of the situation altogether.
  • This Is Unforgivable!: Says this word for word when Tregear's act of pitting Taiga against a brainwashed Taro is an act that's beyond redemption.

Isami Minato/Ultraman Blu

  • Double Take: Instantly after being teleported to the Land of Light, the brothers made their usual fist bump, but quickly came to their senses when they realized where they are, less when remembering how each others are supposed to be in different countries altogether.
  • Idiot Ball: Rosso and Blu quickly flies to outer space to save Grigio, without even knowing where or how to save her. Of course, Ribut and Victory are understandably irritated by their hasty decision. Blu being the usual Leeroy Jenkins in his original series is a Justified Trope, but Rosso on the other hand...

Ultrawoman Grigio

Voiced by: Arisa Sonohara (Japanese), Rumiko Varnes (English)

Ultrawoman Grigio is Asahi Minato's transformed form, making her Rosso and Blu's youngest sister. With both her brothers studying abroad, she becomes the protector of Ayaka City on her own.

For tropes applying to her in general, see the character sheet for Ultraman R/B.


  • Action Girl: Slowly becomes this in Galaxy Fight.
  • Big Damn Heroes: She shows up in the middle of Taiga The Movie to fuse with her brothers into Groob.
  • Damsel in Distress: She was trapped into the Ultra Dark Killer's pocket dimension, when Zero try to stop the dark Ultra from taking her.
  • Fake Shemp: Be it Galaxy Fight or Taiga The Movie, her human host Asahi is non-present and is entirely in her Ultrawoman form.
  • Passing the Torch: On the receiving end, now it's her job to defend her home city in the absence of her brothers.
  • Took a Level in Badass: While severely weakened in the Dark-Killer Zone, she muster enough strength to get pass over Zero Darkness (who is an Evil Knockoff of Zero, one the most powerful Ultraman alive) and uses her energy to recharge her brothers to give them a Heroic Second Wind. Quite a bit of a Downplayed Trope from how we first saw her in Ultraman R/B The Movie.
  • World-Healing Wave: She unleashes one to recharge her drained brothers while Dark Killer drains their energies.

    Ultraman Taro 

Ultraman Taro

Voiced by: Hiroya Ishimaru (Japanese), Bill Sullivan (English)

Also known as Ultraman No. 6 and Master Taro by his fellow Ultra Brothers and his apprentices respectively, he is the son of Father of Ultra and Mother of Ultra, as well as Taiga's father. 12 years ago, he reappeared confronting his old friend Tregear near the Land of Light after the New Generation Ultras were defeated by the rogue Ultraman. He warned the Tri Squad not to face against Tregear but the Tri Squad ignored his advice and they are easily defeated for their trouble. He was last seen clashing with Tregear with his Ultra Dynamite.

For tropes applying to him in general, see the character sheet for Ultraman Taro.


  • Adult Fear: Seeing his son Taiga, seemingly, killed in front of him causes him to break down and attack Tregear without regard for his own safety.
  • All Your Powers Combined: Taro recalls that he was charged with his brothers' powers in order to perform Super Ultra Dynamite and defeating Dark Killer in his first appearance. He also instructed the New Generation Heroes in this same manner to fight his revived old foe.
  • Brainwashed and Crazy: Taro becomes one after being possessed by Grimdo in Taiga's feature movie.
  • Properly Paranoid: He advises the Tri-Squad to back down from the battle, knowing that Tregear is a far worse opponent. He has every right to worry, except from the fact that his son survived.
  • Rage Breaking Point: Seemingly killing his son enrages him enough to perform Ultra Dynamite.
  • Say My Name: TAIGA!!!!!

    Firis 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/filis.png

Portrayed by: Takehisa Hirose (voice)

A blue tribe Ultra of the Land of Light, who worked as an archivist to preserve artifacts from civilizations. He served as a counselor to a young Taiga when the boy felt burdened for living under Taro's shadow.
  • Big Brother Instinct: He's a bit older than Taiga and acts like an older brother of sort to the depressed boy.
  • Continuity Nod: He mentions to archive a weapon named Triger Shot belonging to a certain apprentice of Taro. For keen-eyed fans, the Triger Shot is a weapon used by GUYS on Ultraman Mebius and the title Ultra's human form Mirai Hibino used in Mega Monster Battle: Ultra Galaxy Legends when his Mebius Brace damaged.
  • The Faceless: His face is never shown, since he appears only in the voice drama.
  • Generation Xerox: Like Tregear, he's a blue Ultra and a friend to someone from Father of Ultra's family lineage. Time will tell if he falls like the former too.
  • Mr. Exposition: Explains to the young Taiga of their kind's body color and its meaning.

    Ultraman Ribut 

Ultraman Ribut

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

Voiced by: Wataru Komada (Japanese), Iain Gibb (English)

A member of the Galaxy Rescue Force (His own version of the Space Garrison in another universe) and an ultra who was originally created by the joint collaboration of Tsubaraya and Les' Copaque Productions, the creators of the CGI animated series of Malaysia called Upin & Ipin.
  • Breakout Character: Proved to popular enough to be one of the three central characters of Ultra Galaxy Fight: the Absolute Conspiracy, starring along side Zero and Belial.
  • Canon Immigrant: As mentioned above, he was originally created as a joint collaboration between Tsubaraya Productions and Malaysian and Indonesian CGI cartoon series Upin & Ipin by Les' Copaque Productions in 2014. Initially introduced as a dream character, he is proven to exist in the real world when the titular twins wake up to find his Transformation Trinket present in their bedroom, although this event is de-canonized. This miniseries, however, is his first live appearance.
  • Expy: He's based of Ultraman, Zoffy and Ultraman Jack. His overall design is based of the original (sharing the same Color Timer), the middle has his shoulder and chest design minus the Chest of Medals, and the latter had flatter face and multipurpose tool on his left hand to aid him in battle.
  • Finishing Move: Galaxium Blaster, Ribut's personal Ultra Beam. He fires his Ultra Beam in an L position. Done after swirling his hands around each other. Can destroy a monster in one hit.
  • Hypercompetent Sidekick: In Galaxy Fight, Ribut seems to got everything under his control and prepared than any of the New Generation Heroes. When Taro asked him to go on a patrol, Ribut even revealed that he already had arranged his teammate from Galaxy Rescue Force to do the job. It gets to the point that he goes on fighting against Tregear, although the trickster Ultra managed to escape again.
  • Lightning Bruiser: Ribut is perhaps one of the most agile Ultramen, being able to dodge enemy fire that he is running towards. He often performs jumps and flips and has excellent reaction time for something so massive as an Ultra. He is also capable of fighting on equal terms with Ultraman Tregear, who is an evil Ultraman in the same power level as Geed's Ultimate Final form and Ultraman Gruebe.
  • Luckily, My Shield Will Protect Me: Ribut Blocker, a shield armament worn on his left arm that is a blue crystal, is used to erect his barriers. He can erect a circular shield of blue energy to protect himself.
  • Meaningful Name: His name "Ribut" is the Malay word for "Storm". The name suits him as he's usually seen flying, running, and dodging enemy attacks with amazing speed.
  • Mythology Gag: He is the second Ultra that is named after a word from the Malay language (and by proxy Indonesian) after Ultraman Tiga.
  • What the Hell, Hero?: While saving Rosso and Blu from Etelgar, Ribut even took the time to chastise the two for simply disregarding Taro's orders and go straight into saving their little sister without any kind of plans in preparation.

Ultraman Zero

Voiced by: Mamoru Miyano (Japanese), Jack Merluzzi (English)

The son of Ultraseven and the disciple of Ultraman Leo, as well as Taiga's second cousin, he is one of the most powerful young veteran Ultra Hero in history.

In Ultra Galaxy Fight: New Generation Heroes, he is sent by Space Garrison (also known as Intergalactic Defense Force) to stop Ultra Dark Killer from kidnapping Grigio, only to wind up trapped in Dark Killer Zone by the demonic monster for his trouble.

In Ultraman Taiga, he appears in #23 to aid Tri-Squad in battle against Imit-Ultraman Belial and Ultraman Tregear after hearing about aliens who were using Belial's genetic samples. Zero arrives just in time to help his cousin against two evil Ultras and grants him the Plasma Zero-let to help him. After the duplicate of his arch-enemy destroyed, Zero giving some words of encouragement to Hiroyuki and the Tri-Squad before he leaves.

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/post_5406_taigamovie_01.jpg
A new Ultraman that was born from the Fusion of all New Generation Heroes. He served as an 11th-Hour Superpower to Ultraman Taiga The Movie in against Grimud. Despite sharing the same physical feature with Ultraman Taiga, he is considered a separate entity with a different name instead of being a power up form.
  • All Your Powers Combined: He is the result of Hiroyuki transforming with the New Generation Eye, which itself resulted from all members of New Generation Heroes combining.
  • Fusion Dance: Again as stated above, this form actually combines all of the New Generation Heroes in the strongest forms, which includes Ultraman Ginga Victory, Exceed X Beta Spark Armor, Orb Trinity, Geed Ultimate Final, Gruebe and last but not least Taiga Tri-Strium, which out of the group, three of them are already Fusion Dances on their own right. Eeesshh
  • Meaningful Name: Played with. His name is a fusion of Taiga and Reiwa, which is the current Japanese era. Due to the time his movie was released, Reiga is the first Ultra of any kind to debut in the Reiwa era.

As the story goes on, he encounters Titas and Fuma as well, and become buddies with them.


  • Chronic Hero Syndrome: It doesn't matter if the person in need is their client or not, Hiroyuki wouldn't just sit down and ignore them. Case in point: helping Kawazu in saving Baby Zandrias from the Villain Guild.
    • This is also the reason why Taiga bonded with him: during Hiroyuki's failed attempt to grab onto Rekyum Man to save Chibisuke, Taiga bonded with him after seeing the boy's fearlessness and saved him from a fatal drop.

Portrayed by: Ayuri Yoshinaga

Homare Souya

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

Portrayed by: Ryotaro

Homare Souya is a 25-year-old member with a sense of justice and is faithful to any given mission. He is Hiroyuki's senior and is often enraged when the former runs away in important missions. As he often took on dangerous tasks, Homare puts his high physicality to use while usually partnering with Hiroyuki. He is a working member of E.G.I.S. and often takes on a dangerous task, but he follows Hiroyuki with an activity that makes use of his high physical ability.


  • All There in the Manual: According to the Uchusen Yearbook 2020, his race's name is Alien Amayarum
  • Dark and Troubled Past: He was a street gangster who always pick up a fight with any nearby aliens and at one point worked under the Villain Guild. After finding a new resolve in life, he joined EGIS and becomes one of its most dedicated member.
  • Defector from Decadence: Doubles as Reformed Criminal; he left the Villain Guild and joined EGIS after finding a new purpose in life.
  • Foreshadowing: After being exposed as an alien by a young girl's invention, Homare quickly had Hiroyuki to be scanned and helped revalidate his disguise by making it as if her machine broke. Why would he pull Hiroyuki (a normal human), who would give a negative reading unless he knows that the Tri-Squad inhabited Hiroyuki's body can give mixed results?
  • Human Aliens: He's actually revealed to be an alien belonged to an unknown race, who was exiled from his home planet for unknown reasons. Homare would later reveal his identity to his fellow EGIS members, who did not mind at all.
  • Senpai Kouhai: The senpai to Hiroyuki's kohai.

  • Token Non-Human: At first, he was the only EGIS member to be this, until the last two episodes came around when Pirika was revealed to be a Robot Girl and later on two ex-Villain Guild members joined the team. Looks like he won't be alone anymore.

Kana Sasaki

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

Portrayed by: Chiharu Niyama

Kana Sasaki is the 38-year-old president of EGIS. She previously worked as a police officer in External Affairs Division X before leaving her job to establish EGIS. She puts up a rather playful facade but shows a serious attitude when handling an alien case and is observant of her employees. She is a reliable captain who watches over young members while pretending to be vague.
  • A Mother to Her Men: She is observant of the EGIS members and even hiring those who are regardless aliens or having criminal background. In turn, said members are also loyal to her.
  • Everyone Has Standards: As money pinching as Kana is, she tore the client from #3's check in half and threw it out after it turned out that he was a total scumbag. Given he paid the group 10 million yen for the job, that's not nothing.
  • My Greatest Failure: The reason why she founded EGIS is not just to provide security, but also to handle alien-related cases that her previous job in External Affairs Division X cannot handle. This includes a Dark and Troubled Past where she wasn't able to help an orphaned alien girl and the latter was brought to a research facility.
  • Only in It for the Money: To quote her line from episode 1, "Oh well, at least he paid, right?" Of course, she also tore the client from #3's check in half and threw it out.
  • Obfuscating Stupidity: She acts like a carefree leader of EGIS but is observant of the members' attitude.
  • Secret Keeper: Already know about Hiroyuki's secret identity as Ultraman Taiga, Titas, & Fuma, but chose to keep it for herself until the last episode.

Antagonists

    Kirisaki/Ultraman Tregear 
https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/kirisaki.jpg
Tregear's human form, Kirisaki.

Portrayed by: Yuuma Uchida (voice; Japanese), Michael Rhys (voice; English) Kou Nanase (Kirisaki)

The show's main villain, Ultraman Tregear had previously menaced Rosso and Blu in their Movie but has returned to spread further strife. He assumes a human form in order to blend in with human society, calling himself Kirisaki, but otherwise operates fairly similarly to how he did previously.
For tropes applying to him in general, see the character sheet for Ultraman R/B.

  • Action Bomb: Turns out, Tregear is able to uses his own version of the Ultra Dynamite. His flame is blue to contrast with Taro's red.
  • Alas, Poor Villain: The last thing Tregear does before he and Grimdo are obliterated by Reiga is to cry out Taro's name in sorrow.
  • Ambiguously Gay: The Ultraman Taiga novel Black Shadow reveals that when Taro was his only friend, Tregear secretly wrote poems of him in admiration. Back when he created the Taiga Spark, he was also planning to name the item as Taro Spark.
  • And Your Little Dog, Too!: Unlike his movie debut, Tregear has a knack of doing this:
    • His purpose of corrupting Taiga into an evil Ultraman is to serve as a middle finger to Taro, who he has a feud with to this day.
    • Once Hiroyuki and the others saved Taiga from Tregear's corruption, the evil Ultra targeted EGIS members, especially Hiroyuki for no other purposes than to spite him even further.
  • Ax-Crazy: And how, even more so than Belial of all people. Nevertheless, Tregear is very good at hiding it.
  • Badass Bookworm: Extracanonical sources stated that he was a scientist in the Land of Light, but his current self also proves to be a bigger threat.
  • Berserk Button: There are only two things that can piss him off: 1) The Power of Friendship that recent Ultraman uses to this day, and 2) disagreeing the fact that light and darkness are the same side of a coin.
  • Big Bad: Shaping up to be one for the series.
  • Blue-and-Orange Morality: He is a firm believer that there is no such thing as good or evil. His human form Kirisaki wears a T-shirt with white on the right and black on the left, further symbolizing his morality.
    "This is exactly what I mean. You guys are always labeling things as black and white. I'm telling you, there is no such thing as good or evil in this universe."
  • Broken Pedestal: Ultraman Hikari became one for Tregear according to the Blue Shadow novel. Tregear became bitter and resentful when he learns of Hikari's path of revenge following the incident on Planet Arb.
    "That intelligent Ultraman Hikari, who was skeptical about fighting! The boss who I used to respect and a proud scientist of the Blue Tribe had fallen into darkness and degenerated into someone seeking vengeance. Ultramen aren't gods. Although we're not gods, we worked to maintaining the balance of the universe, good and evil, light and shadow. The existence of Belial and Hikari were cracks that ran into the Land of Light. Born as an Ultraman, there are some who have enormous power and fascinated by the darkness. Other than our gigantic proportions, the Ultramen are exactly the same as the Earthlings. So aren't we immature creatures?
  • Cerebus Retcon: His final moments before being obliterated by Taiga Tri-Strium's Quattro Squad Blaster has him comparing Taiga's backlit figure from Earth's sun to Taro. Unlike most of the time when he calls the young Ultra as Taro's son just to mess with him, the Blue Shadow novel revealed that Tregear's start of friendship with Taro was after his former friend jumped with his back lit by the sun and that image stuck into Tregear's head as his (regrettably) happier moments of his childhood life.
  • Contrasting Sequel Antagonist:
    • While just as bombastic and over the top as Makoto Aizen/Cereza, Tregear is actually an Ultraman, albeit, one fallen, while Makoto was a Loony Fan who could only become an Evil Knockoff of his favorite Ultraman. There also a wide contrast between their personalities and motivations: Aizen was genuinely Affably Evil and arranged for Engineered Heroics to he can "save" the day as the hero the people wanted. Meanwhile, Tregear positively revels in being Faux Affably Evil while causing as much pain and misery as he can due to sincerely believing that good and evil are just made up ideas
    • Despite his similarities with Belial given that they were fallen Ultras and close friends with one of the members of the Space Garrison, the differences that Tregear was more of a Straw Nihilist sadistic trickster and manipulator who enjoys causing mayhem for the hell of it, whereas Belial is more of a power-hungry, intergalactic tyrant.
  • Cry for the Devil: Tregear might be a messed up, sociopathic Straw Nihilist; calling out Taro's name in a sorrowful voice just as before he is destroyed along with Grimdo makes enough sense not only that they were once friends, but at least he can see his former friend's suffering end and find peace.
  • Deal with the Devil: To fully severe his connection to his Ultraman heritage, Tregear has the evil gods from Planet Volhes absorbed into his body and embrace his current title as a demon.
  • The Dreaded: So much so that evil aliens like Markind of Villain Guild is willing to call off their auction when he's on the scene.
  • Enemy Summoner: Simply calling their name, Kirisaki is able to summon monsters through a purple vortex in the sky.
  • Evil Cannot Comprehend Good: Given his twisted belief towards the idea of justice, as well as his implied Ineffectual Loner attitude, he doesn't and possibly never understand The Power of Friendship and True Companions; those two ideas which various Ultra heroes including New Generation Heroes and the Tri Squad have frequently relied on. He mocks the idea and is quite clearly disgusted by mentioning the word "bonds", let alone showing it right in front of his face. Best shown in episode 16, when Taiga manages to overcome the darkness through the power of bonds, he's drops his scheming attitude and becomes more enraged. Afterwards, he develops an intense hatred towards Hiroyuki and starts targeting him directly, but not before he hurts his friends, just for the sake to spite him.
  • Evil Counterpart:
    • To Ultraman Hikari. It's made even more apparent in the Blue Shadow novel, as they are both blue-bodied Ultras who gave in to the darkness after a fateful incident that changed their lives. Hikari became Hunter Knight Tsurugi out of his vendetta quest against Bogar, while Tregear became more cynical and nihilistic after overhearing Hikari and Belial's fall from grace, as well dismissing the concept of good and evil as nothing more but false beliefs, and willingly absorbed an all-powerful Kaiju into himself into becoming the most dangerous being in the universe. Unlike Tregear though, Hikari pulled a Heel Realization after being scolded by Zoffy for his lack of concern for the second life he was given by Mother of Ultra and reasoned by Ryu Aihara into releasing Kazuya Serizawa and reclaimed his identity as an Ultraman.
    • He is also this to the New Generation Heroes as a whole as they represent The Power of Friendship where the Ultras and their host have embodied their bonds they have for their respective close friends. As Tregear himself embodies The Power of Hate, he is presented as a Straw Nihilist and pathological sociopath whose loyalty is to no one but himself.
  • Fallen Hero: He was an Ultraman from the Land of Light, but like Belial before him, Tregear was swayed from the path of good and becomes evil. The Blue Shadow novel revealed that his disappointment in Ultramen like Belial and Hikari being swayed from the path of good, and the Land of Light heroes' failure to ensure permanent peace in outer space is what turning him into the path of madness.
  • Famous Last Words: Taro...
  • Faux Affably Evil: Be it in his Ultra or human form, Tregear always keeps a formal and friendly gesture, all while pissing off his enemies on a regular basis, all with a smile on his face.
  • For the Evulz: As far as his motives concerned, almost everything he did in the series was only for his own amusement and enjoys seeing anyone suffer, both the good guys and already evil aliens alike.
    • He also empowered Dark-Killer and Zero Darkness in the final scenes of Galaxy Fight just to screw the New Generation Heroes again.
  • Generation Xerox:
    • His past with Taro is basically a retread of Father of Ultra's with Belial. Its even acknowledged in-universe in the pre-premiere special Episode 0.
    • Like Belial as well, Tregear abandoned his identity as an Ultraman by merging with an ancient Eldritch Abomination into his body, effectively changing his appearance and gaining improvements in strength.
  • Greater-Scope Villain:
    • He's the mastermind behind the League of Darkness in Ultra Galaxy Fight and is also the one who orders the kidnapping of Ultrawoman Grigio, which sets the motion of the miniseries. Tsuburaya did very little to hide his presence.
    • His feature novel reveals that he is responsible for Mulnau's development of crystal powers and turning Reugosite into an evil monster.
  • Hypocrite: In any scenes he's in, Tregear would be mad if anyone ever tried to classify the differences of light and shadow as if a person in real life demands for equal rights between races, yet as seen in episode 5, he calls Ultraman Fuma by his home world, Planet O-50 a la Fantastic Racism.
  • I've Come Too Far: It's implied that Tregear's Redemption Rejection in the final episode was because of how he reflected all of the atrocities he done before and risk the same fate as Belial. His apparent Suicide by Cop moments later seems to indicate this as well.
  • Joker Immunity: Absolutely nothing can kill this devil of a trickster. His feature novel reveals that its because of the ability to cheat death by having a body double from an alternate universe taking his place.
  • Kick the Dog: Befitting his Sadist nature, Tregear seems to enjoy killing or hurting anyone that his targets cherished. He kills Chibisuke/King Guesra and torments EGIS just to spite Hiroyuki, kills Black King to provoke Odyssa into his fighting spirit and slices Pandon into pieces when Taiga refused to kill that bird monster.
  • Knight of Cerebus: If his appearance Ultraman R/B The Movie wasn't enough to remove all lighthearted and humorous moments, every time Tregear shows up in the series, the chances are that all hell breaks loose.
  • Mask of Sanity: In a literal and figurative sense, his human form Kirisaki serves to hide his ruthless and vicious personality while blending in among Earthlings. But, when he puts on the Tregear Eye and reveals himself, that's where he unleashes the raving lunatic that we come to know about him.
  • Meaningful Name: In the Land of Light's language, Tregear translates to madness and curiosity.
  • Nice Job Fixing It, Villain!: He attempts to stop Taiga from feeding Woola with his energy and launched an energy ball attack, but Taiga fired a Wide Shot and combined it with Tregear's own attack to completely satiate Woola's hunger for good.
  • Only Friend: As a child, the young Tregear regarded Taro as his only companion despite his introversion. Every moment of friendship they shared in the past went down the drain after his Face–Heel Turn.
  • OOC Is Serious Business: He's basically Affably Evil and a trickster, but when Ultraman Taro appears, he drops all the aforementioned traits.
    Tregear: Don't act like some galactic guardsman! Who decided the light is justice?!
  • Pass the Popcorn: Most of the time as Kirisaki, he is always seen eating his popcorn, biting a beef jerky, cracking walnuts and even drinking bubble tea while bear witness of the ensuing chaos.
  • Perpetual Smiler: Kirisaki always sports a sinister smile.
  • Power Limiter: The armor he wears, according to magazine. The feature movie added that its actually to contain the monster named Grimdo from escaping.
  • Redemption Rejection: Taiga tries to offer him another chance of redemption by returning to their home world again. He quickly shot down the offer.
  • Shout-Out: Kirisaki's habit of carrying balloons cause viewers to instantly compare him to Pennywise, while his monochrome shirt leans on Monokuma. Likewise, their current appearance is merely a disguise and they have a penchant for inducing mental torture to their targets.
  • The Shadow Knows: Just before episode 1's ending, Kirisaki's shadow took the shape of Tregear as his eyes shine red.
  • The Sociopath: Tregear, for all his diluted morality and nihilistic worldview, has the criteria of a textbook sociopath. While he has the charm and charisma, he enjoys manipulating (both good and bad guys alike) and tormenting everybody he comes across with, along with the pathological need to orchestrate chain of, if not entirely, catastrophic events for his own sick amusement. His rap sheet can even be as petty as blowing a young girl's balloon.
  • Straw Nihilist: This is everything what Tregear stood for. Tregear's Start of Darkness also roots from overhearing both Belial and Hikari's fall from grace in the novel. To him, good and evil, light and darkness are devoid of meaning. He also has a pathological urge to cause mayhem across the galaxy just to fuel his hatred for anything that resemble the "bonds" that every Ultramen stood for.
  • Suicide by Cop: His apparent final fate at the end of the series was to open his arms and allow himself to be fired upon by Taiga Tri-Strium's Quattro Squad Blaster. Considering that this is Tregear, we knew that it takes more than an Ultraman fusion to kill him.
  • Transformation Trinket: He has the Tregear Eye, which functions similarly to the Ultra Eye and Ultra Zero Eye. Episode 17 reveals that he can just morph freely into his Ultraman form at will, but that's the only instance we've seen of it.
  • Troll: He enjoys poking fun the Tri Squad, especially Taiga whom he called "son of Ultraman Taro" instead of his name to get on the young Ultra his nerves even further.
  • We Used to Be Friends: With Taro.
  • You Can't Go Home Again: Taro says this to Tregear after he fell into the dark side.

  • Demoted to Dragon: Assuming that the League of Darkness is actually acting under Tregear and Lugiel simply joins the wagon under Dark-Killer, then its a huge step from how he was a dark mastermind from his home series.
  • The Only One Allowed to Defeat You: He's only in to the wagon of League of Darkness, so long that he can defeat Ginga all for himself.
  • Those Two Bad Guys: With Etelgar as the guard within the Dark Palace.
  • Villain Decay: Gets killed by Ginga Victory using the Wide Zero Shot, despite his first appearance and resurrection as Vict Lugiel requires a full power attack to kick the bucket altogether.

Etelgar

Voiced by: Tatsuhisa Suzuki (Japanese), Lyle Carr (English)

The super space-time demon that had once fought against Heisei Era Ultramen to imprison them in mirrors before he was defeated by Ultraman Ginga Victory.

Ultraman X Darkness

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/xdarknessnoarmorrender.png
An evil clone of Ultraman X, created by Ultra Dark Killer by sampling on X's light energy and merged it with his Killer Plasma.

Ultraman Geed Darkness

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ultraman_geed_darkness_render.png
An evil clone of Ultraman Geed, created by Ultra Dark Killer by sampling on Geed's light energy and merged it with his Killer Plasma.
  • Composite Character:
    • He is visually appears as Ultraman Geed back when he was Brainwashed and Crazy from episode 17 with the color schemes of Ultraman Belial. In other words, he is the ideal version of how Belial sees his son if the latter accept his offer to rule together.
    • Additionally, he is also based on the concept of Geed's "older brothers" from the 2018 Ultra Heroes EXPO, who consist of a trio of failed clones of Belial created before Ultraman Geed, making them his older brothers of sorts.
  • Evil Knockoff: Of Ultraman Geed
  • Evil Sounds Deep: His own grunts are deep and distorted versions of the original Geed.
  • Finishing Move: Wrecking Darkness Burst.
  • Make Me Wanna Shout: Wrecking Darkness Roar, launching a sonic roar towards his target.
  • Mythology Gag: His color scheme is a reference to episode 16 of Ultraman Geed when Belial slammed Geed's face against the ground, getting dirt on it. His red eyes were demonstrated twice on his template; first when he was under Belial's trance and second when Riku gave in to his anger to destroy Galactron MK2.
  • Power Copying: Being a copy of Geed, he also has a set of his template's original powers.
  • Red and Black and Evil All Over: His color scheme, as well as a bit of purple to his chest and shoulders, and even his face.

Ultraman Orb Darkness

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ultraman_orb_darkness_render_2.png
An evil clone of Ultraman Orb, created by Ultramen X and Geed Darkness by sampling on Orb's light energy and merged it with their Killer Plasma.
  • BFS: Darkness Calibur, an Evil Knockoff of Orbcalibur. Like the original as well, the sword can still utilize all the same abilities.
  • Composite Character: He is basically a case of real life Prop Recycling, wherein he reuses the suit of Ultraman Orb Dark with the metallic parts on his chest colored blue and his face gains tribal markings, especially blue "tear" lines to emphasize Chaos Ultraman.
  • Dark Is Evil: Is entirely black, and the red portion only goes to his eyes and Color Timer.
  • Evil Sounds Deep: A given by all Darkness copies of New Generation Heroes, his is the deepened version of Orb's grunts.
  • Imperfect Ritual: The October 2019 magazine revealed that Orb Darkness' lack of red color is this, due to Ultraman Victory stopping their process halfway before saving Orb. This does not hinder him however, as Orb Darkness is already as strong as the original template.
  • Mythology Gag: All those four metallic parts on his chest and his red Color Timer eerily gives him the resemblance to Juggler's Dark Ring.
  • Power Copying: He was seen using a copy of Orbcalibur and can also initiate the same Orb Supreme Calibur.

Ultraman Zero Darkness

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/zerodarkness.png
An evil clone of Ultraman Zero, created by Ultra Dark Killer by sampling on Zero's light energy and merged it with his Killer Plasma. Unlike the others, he is a literal copy based on Zero's existing form during Belial's Demonic Possession on the hot-blooded hero in the events of Ultra Zero Fight 2.
For the original Ultraman Zero or Belial's tropes, see here.

    Grimdo 

Grimud

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/post_5406_taigamovie_04.jpg
The major antagonist of Ultraman Taiga The Movie, this being was a monster that already sealed within Tregear's body, which explains his ridiculously overpowered status in most of his appearances. When Taiga Tri-Strium defeated Tregear at the final season, it broke the seal that leads to Grimdo's escape, so the New Generation Heroes have to seal it again in a special barrier at the cost of their transformations. Not that it would stop the monster from appearing in the movie's climax, though.
  • Deal with the Devil: In the novel, Tregear purposefully had Grimdo absorbed and locked into his body to sever his heritage as an Ultraman, giving him lightning powers, teleportation and the ability to cheat death.
  • Demonic Possession: When Taro performs Ultra Dynamite to save his son, Grimdo took that opportunity to possess him when his body was about to reform, causing the whole drama in the movie. Taiga frees Taro using the Tri Squad's own variation of Ultra Dynamite.
  • Devour the Dragon: Tregear allows himself to be consumed by Grimdo for the monster to become several times larger than any of the present Ultras.
  • Eldritch Abomination: Just look at this monster's menacing figure on the right. If that mono eye isn't frightening enough, then its body build and a face-like torso does counts.
  • Eyes Do Not Belong There: Has a pair of them on its chest in addition to a cyclops-like mono eye on his head.
  • Foreshadowing: In the movie, Grimdo unleashes energy spikes that empowers Tregear's summoned monsters. Flash forward toUltraman Z has a similar plot where spikes from remains of Ultraman Belial's body turns monsters into berserkers.
  • God of Evil: Its subtitle is Evil Deity Monster.
  • Sealed Evil in a Can: Grimdo was originally sealed in the Space Ruins Volhes before Tregear invited the monster into his body, and Taiga Tri-Strium accidentally opened the lock by unleashing Quattro Squad Blaster on Tregear. Its second seal was made by the New Generation Heroes at the cost of their transformation powers.
  • Sealed Inside a Person-Shaped Can: Grimdo's true nature is that it was imprisoned within Tregear's own body and had been the source of his tremendous power ever since.
  • Walking Spoiler: We have a very good reason on why this entry has so many hidden spoilers, especially when Grimdo is behind the secret of Tregear's powers.

Monsters and Aliens

    Ultraman Taiga 

Zegun

First Appearance: Buddy Go!
The first kaiju seen in the series. An alien bioweapon utilized by an Alien Magma to fight the Mother Zandrias as part of a live demonstration to auction the creature off to intergalactic conquerors. However, the fight was interrupted by the unexpected arrival of Hellberus.
See Ultraman Geed
  • Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: Faces this fate at the tip of Hellberus' tail.
  • Mythology Gag: Zegan's role in this series is based on Oil Drinker from Ultraman Taro. Both were bio-weapons from a previous season (Oil Drinker is a Choju, a sub-type of monsters from Ultraman Ace) and were beaten by a natural-born but stronger monsters who get to be the titular Ultra's first kill.
  • The Worf Effect: Zegan was no slouch when it fought Ultraman Geed and continues to further demonstrate its power for potential buyers in the battle against Zandrias. Of course, the tables got turned the moment Hellberus showed up.

Zandrias

First Appearance: Buddy Go!
A young mother monster that came to Earth in pursuit of its baby, which had been captured by Alien Magma in order to give Zegun something to demonstrate its power against. The battle did not go very well for the bat-like kaiju, but things got even worse with the arrival of Hellberus.
See Ultraman 80

  • Mama Bear: So ferociously protective of its child that it was willing to battle the far stronger Zegun and Hellberus to save it.
  • I Have Your Wife: Alien Magma has her son, and is using the baby as leverage to force her into combat.

Hellberus

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/hellberus_render_6.png
First Appearance: Buddy Go!
Hellberus is the first kaiju that was summoned by Kirisaki to Earth, interrupting the ongoing battle between Zegun and Zandrias. With sharp blades growing all over parts of its body, it can slice through nearly any objects easily, making it an appropriately formidable beginner enemy in Hiroyuki's career as Ultraman Taiga. The monster was later brought back by Kirisaki alongside Night Fang to fight against Fuma and Titas when Taiga was successfully corrupted by Tregear.

Chibisuke/King Gesura

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/chibisuke.png
Chibisuke, aka. young Gesura.
First Appearance: Tregear
Long ago, Chibisuke was a baby Gesura who befriended Hiroyuki until it was kidnapped by the Rekyum Man. Within the span of 12 years, Chibisuke was modified into the gigantic King Gesura as a monster weapon to be auctioned by the Villain Guild and attacks cacao bean storage areas to attract bidders for the Villain Guild.
See Ultraman TV Series

  • Brainwashed and Crazy: Courtesy of the microchip in its brain, which linked to the Rekyum Man's controller, and later Kirisaki through his psychokinesis.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: For all the trouble Hiroyuki goes into saving Chibisuke, the monster sacrificed itself to protect Taiga and its old friend from Tregear's attack.
  • Mythology Gag: According to outside sources, the first King Gesura, which appeared in Superior Ultraman 8 Brothers is the original Gesura from Ultraman modified into a stronger form. Chibisuke follows that example, although instead of being resurrected from the dead, it was subjected to remodeling at a younger age.
    • Additionally, it eats cacao beans, just like the first Gesura.
  • Reforged into a Minion: Chibisuke was kidnapped in its juvenile state by the Rekyum Man and spends the next 12 years remodeled into a giant monster weapon to be sold by the Villain Guild.
  • Secret Handshake: Hiroyuki (and Taiga) performs one to make Chibisuke return to its senses. It works, but...
  • She's All Grown Up: In a rather twisted way, Hiroyuki learns that Chibisuke is no longer the innocent critter he used to befriend with.
  • Spike Shooter: Like in Ultraman X, King Gesura can shoot out a hailstorm of the poisonous spines on its back.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: It likes eating cacao beans, and as Chibisuke, it feeds on Hiroyuki's chocolate.

Rento Kujo/Galactron MK 2

Portrayed by: Kenta Mishima

First Appearance: Avenger of the Stars
Originally an astronaut named Rento Kujo, he and his wife Nana was killed when a rocket launched by the president of Cozmo Technica accidentally blew up their space station. He was resurrected by Tregear and given the ability to become Galactron MK 2, which he used to get revenge for Nana's death. The monster robot was brought back in the finale by Kirisaki to battle Taiga and draw out the planet-eating garbage monster Woola.
See Ultraman Geed

  • Back for the Finale: Kirisaki uses its Kaiju Ring to bring it back and fight Taiga again, only for the giant robot to get eaten by Woola.
  • Came Back Wrong: He is a human astronaut who died in the cold vacuum of space and got revived as a Humongous Mecha.
  • Cool Gun: He gains one that can create portals and doubles as his Transformation Trinket into Galactron.
  • Deal with the Devil: He was revived by Tregear to enact his revenge in a month after his death.
  • The Lost Lenore: While Rento died with his wife, he becomes this when Tregear revived only him.
  • Mythology Gag: Rento is based on both incarnations of Jamila, as they were astronauts who return to Earth for revenge when their disappearances were covered up by a big conspiracy.
  • The Power of Hate: Like Snake Darkness, this Galactron runs on Rento's hatred for the narcissistic president of a space exploration group. Even with Rento's spirit exorcised, said Galactron just continues to function.
  • Together in Death: Titas exorcised Rento from Galactron MK 2, allowing reunite with his wife and their spirit passes on to the outer space. Galactron MK 2 on the other hand remains functional.
  • The Worf Effect: As its episode marks the return of Ultraman Titas, Galactron MK 2 also serves to demonstrate the new hero's sheer strength. Later on, Galactron MK 2 is hit by this again when Kirisaki uses it to as bait to lure out Woola, with the giant robot getting completely wrecked and devoured by the new monster.
  • Wrecked Weapon: Its Galactron Veil shattered to pieces by a single punch from Titas.

Alien Fanton

Portrayed by: Makoto Takahashi

First Appearance: Requiem of the Wolves
An informant for the EGIS who disguises himself as a hippie living under a bridge and selling junk.
See Ultraman Mebius

  • Drunk on Milk: Almost literally. It is revealed in the series that his species become intoxicated by yogurt.
  • Mundane Object Amazement: When he notices a bottle cap Hiroyuki has been carrying around, he becomes extremely interested in it, claiming they are extremely valuable on his homeworld.

Deavorick (MB)

First Appearance: Requiem of the Wolves
A monster sealed inside of a bomb that was acquired by the ex-Villain Guild member Volk from his former master, the Alien Zetton Zolin. Volk used the explosive and the monster it was carrying to blackmail the Japanese government for a massive ransom.
See Ultraman Orb

  • Adaptational Wimp: It is justified that the original Deavorick was summoned by Mulnau and the Dark Ring, hence the ability to crystallize everything on its sight and able to defeat Ultraman X himself. Here, Deavorick is just a monster weapon whose easily trashed by another Ultraman from O-50, Fuma.
  • Sealed Evil in a Can: It was placed inside of an explosive that when detonated released the monster at its full size.
  • The Worf Effect: Its appearance also marks the return of Ultraman Fuma, whose Super Speed allows him to overcome the kaiju's Beam Spam in ways that Taiga was unable to.
  • Wrecked Weapon: Fuma knocks off its Arm Cannon during the fight.

Alien Seger Aoi

Portrayed by: Rion Tanamoto

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/segerseijinaoi.png
First Appearance: The Future You Decide
An alien race that values working endlessly above all else, the Segers take over habitable planets using the monster Segmeger, which is conjured to a targeted world by an individual known as the Summoner. With the aliens targeting Earth, a Summoner named Aoi is sent to command Segmeger, but there, she befriends Pirika .
  • Crystal Ball: Much like Commander Black in Ultraman Leo, Aoi summons her kaiju using one.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: In penitence for all the planets she has destroyed in her career, Aoi transfers her life force from her crystal ball to re-energize Titas and weaken Segmeger.
  • Human Aliens: They appear to be such based on what we see of Aoi.
  • Punch-Clock Villain: Aoi sees her job position as a Summoner in the same way others would view a white-collar working job. Even despite her destructive occupation, she's very friendly. Ultimately, however, she comes to realize the horrendous nature of her job and chooses to sacrifice herself.
  • Soul Jar: Aoi's crystal ball acts as one.
  • Workaholic: The species' entire culture is based around such, with even things like planetary conquest being treated in the same way as a highly competitive (and very toxic) office space.

Alien Damara

Portrayed by: Isamu Kurihashi

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/damara.png
First Appearance: The Future You Decide
An alien whose homeworld was one of several planets destroyed by the Seger aliens in their galactic conquest. He was the one who told EGIS that Segmeger was an alien tool of conquest and not a simple rampaging brute.

Segmeger

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/segmeger_2.jpg
First Appearance: The Future You Decide
A highly poisonous monster used by the Alien Seger to invade and destroy other planets. Not only were its deadly toxins injurious to Hiroyuki, but its connection to the Summoner Aoi meant the creature could be called forth endlessly no matter how many times it was destroyed.
  • Achilles' Heel: Because Segemeger is completely tied to Aoi's crystal ball and the life force contained within it, removing said life force weakens Segmeger and neutralizes its poisons.
  • Bloody Murder: Its purple blood is as every bit as poisonous as its breath, which makes injuring every bit as dangerous.
  • Breath Weapon: Its Seger Flame, a purple jet of poisonous fire.
  • Poisonous Person: Its Seger Flame is a poisonous fire and apart from that, its even in its blood, which the monster can weaponize to disorient Titas when he dismembered its tail.
  • Prehensile Tail: Uses its tail to constrict Titas in their battle. Titas rips it off, only to receive a gush of poisonous blood to the face.
  • Resurrective Immortality: So long that Segmeger is tied to Aoi's life force, it can endlessly revive itself whenever she wanted the monster to commence attacking another time.
  • Shock and Awe: The only non-poisonous attack is a ray of lightning charged from its back spikes.

Alien Gapiya Abel

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

Voiced by: Shunichi Maki

First Appearance: The Flying Saucer is Not Coming
The younger brother of Sadeath, Abel longed to be as great as him and thus became a hitman to follow his footsteps. Due his long-time grudge for the Ultra Warriors, he was hired by Kirisaki to eliminate Taiga, Titas, and Fuma. However, when Perolynga and Kana witness his arrival, they get added to Abel's personal list.
See Ultraman Orb

  • Arm Cannon: Unlike his brother's automated Gapiya Snake, Abel's version is a railgun that shoots purple harpoons.
  • Art Evolution: Abel is basically a Palette Swap of Sadeath, with blue color scheme and red eyes.
  • Backup Twin: Played With. He sees himself as one and receives an almost similar cybernetic modification to follow his late brother.
  • Big Brother Worship: Idolizes his older brother, which makes his Cyborg conversion a bit creepier. Amused by his client Tregear being a Fallen Hero, Abel shook and caresses his hand long enough for the blue Ultra to get his handkerchief and wipe his hand in disgust.
  • Can't Catch Up: Sadly, Abel is far from being a copy of his older brother. His attempt to imitate his brother's signature punch only sends him yards away before landing safely.
  • Cyborg: Has modified his own body into one
  • Deal with the Devil: Abel sees himself doing a Faustian bargain with Tregear, but its the other way round as the alien is offering his service to the Ultra. This may be a two-fold symbolism, as Tregear allows Abel to kill Ultras out of amusement for his late brother.
  • Fantastic Racism: He has a large hatred for the Ultras due to their part in Sadeath's demise. When his client, Tregear, was revealed to be an Ultra, Abel hesitated at first until the dark giant proclaims that the "Ultraman" title was only in his past and is referred to as a "demon" in the present day.
  • Finishing Move: Fantastic Abelfiction, an inferior copy to his late brother's flying punch attack.
  • Gratuitous English: Picking up some of this from his late brother.
  • Half the Man He Used to Be: Is the receiving end of Fuma's Sharp Star Light Wave Shuriken, splitting Abel in vertical half like Sadeath.
  • He Knows Too Much: Spends the entire episode hunting a stranded Perolynga and Kana just for witnessing his presence on Earth.
  • Irony: He spends the entire episode idolizing his older brother Sadeath, yet is the receiving end of being killed by an Ultra from O-50, the same kind of Ultra that killed the former.
  • It's Personal: Aside from carrying out Tregear's wish, he also sees amusement in hunting the Tri-Squad to avenge his older brother.
  • Meaningful Name: Named after Abel, the Biblical brother of Cain.
  • Professional Killer: He's a hitman with a particular vendetta against Ultramen.
  • Sword and Gun: Uses this combo like his older brother.

Alien Perolynga

Portrayed by: Hiroyuki Takano

First Appearance: The Flying Saucer is Not Coming
A lone alien had arrived on Earth about 50 years ago and befriended a human. When this friend refused to follow him back into space, he was abandoned on Earth. In the present, he continues to long to leave Earth, but his encounters with Abel and Kana lead him to rethink his life goals
See Ultraseven

  • Adaptational Heroism: It's implied he's the same Perolynga from Ultraseven, but is depicted as a much friendlier person without any intentions of world domination. Of course, the original Perolynga was killed by Ultraseven...
  • I Choose to Stay: After an Armor-Piercing Question from Kana that day, Perolynga realizes that he likes Earth after all and decline an invitation from his brother to return, wanting to spend his time on Earth again.
  • Mythology Gag: His entire appearance is one big homage to his original appearance, with his scenes in the Cold Opening and ending of the episode mimicking those of Saburu, the stargazer from his debut. His human form actor is even the same kid who played the original one's human disguise!
  • There's No Place Like Home: Spends most of the episode talking about how much he wants to go back to his home planet after 50 years on Earth.

Night Fang

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/night_fang.jpg
First Appearance: To The Demon's Mountain
A demonic entity that terrorized Kuzuryu Village centuries ago, worshiped by the locals out of fear until it was sealed away by a miko in Akame Mountain. However in the present, it is freed by a pair of aliens using the powers of a psychic idol girl named Ai Tennoji that EGIS had been assigned to protect. The monster was later brought back by Kirisaki alongside Hellberus to fight against Fuma and Titas when Taiga was successfully corrupted by Tregear.
  • Achilles' Heel: Its body still carries some of the Earth energy used by the miko to seal it away. Awakening that power briefly stuns Night Fang and gives Taiga the Photon Earth power to defeat it.
  • Back from the Dead: In episode 16, thanks to Kirisaki using its Kaiju Ring.
  • Brown Note: Its main ability is the Fang Wave, a wave of sound released from its hidden eyeball that causes humans to fall into a nightmare-plagued sleep.
  • Combat Tentacles: Possesses numerous tentacles on its body, but its most formidable set are the whip-like ones on its arms.
  • Dream Eater: Feeds on the nightmares of those put to sleep by its Fang Wave.
  • Eldritch Abomination: Bat wings aside, Night Fang bears a Cthulhu-like face on its torso, several tendrils on its head, and a singular eyeball hidden on its forehead. Director Makoto Kamiya stated that Night Fang is meant to resemble a monster from Cthulhu Mythos.
  • Eyes Do Not Belong There: Has a pair of them on its chest and even a singular eyeball that shoots waves which caused its target to be trapped in a nightmare-laden sleep.
  • God of Evil: Worshiped as one by the people of Kuzuryu Village, who sacrificed humans to it so they would be spared of its wrath. They called it Lord Akame.
  • Giant Flyer: Its bat-like wings allow it to take to the air.
  • Names to Run Away from Really Fast: Night Fang.
  • Our Demons Are Different: Its Boss Subtitles translate as Nightmare Demon Beast, but due to an error on the part of Tsuburaya's website, it became Lost in Translation as Nightmare Monster.
  • Playing with Fire: Shoots fireballs from its forehead.
  • Purple Is Powerful: Possesses a lot of purple in its colour scheme and proves to be a deadly foe for Taiga and Fuma.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: It possesses two baleful red eyes. Its nickname of Lord Akame even means "Lord Red-Eyes".
  • Sealed Evil in a Can: Was imprisoned centuries ago inside a mountain by a shrine maiden, where it remained until Alien Hook and Babalou freed it.
  • Villain Team-Up: With Hellberus in episode 16 when the two are resurrected by Kirisaki.

Alien Babalou and Alien Hook

First Appearance: To the Demon's Mountain!
A pair of aliens intent on freeing Night Fang from its prison as part of an invasion scheme. Disguised as cultists of "Lord Akame", they drew EGIS and Ai to Kuzuryu Village in order to harness the latter's psychic powers in a ritual to free the demon during an eclipse.
See Ultraman Leo for Alien Babalou and Ultraseven for Alien Hook

Majappa

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/majappa.png
First Appearance: The Present for Each
A monster that was long sealed away by an alien race, Majappa's sealed glass bottle was passed onto the sealer's descendants, with the current one being Homare's childhood friend Maiko "Majiko" Namekata. However, the Villain Guild targets Maiko and her bottle to use the creature for their own ends, only to end up unsealing the creature.
For its original appearance as Maga-Jappa, see Ultraman Orb

  • Adaptational Badass: While retaining most of Maga-Jappa's attacks, Majappa trade its awful stench for one that is capable of disorienting the opponent with painful effect.
  • Continuity Nod: According to Word of God, Majappa is the original version of Maga-Jappa.
  • Making a Splash: Majappa is already a water-based monster like its template, but since it lacks the ability to pollute water, Majappa can shoot high pressured stream of water from its snout, which is powerful enough to send an Ultra flying.
  • Mythology Gag: Like the original Maga-Jappa, Majappa was killed by an Ultraman who is related to Taro.
  • Sealed Evil in a Can: This time, it's in a glass bottle in the form of water rather than being placed in slumber or having regressed into a card.

Alien Nackle Odyssa

Portrayed by: Tamotsu Ishibashi (human form and voice actor)

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

First Appearance: Warriors in the Evening Glow
A long time ago, a lone Nackle and his Black King were criminal duo that made their name in the galaxy before his defeat by an unspecified Ultraman (implied to be Ultraman Jack) on an unnamed planet. 50 years later, this Nackle lives peacefully on Earth as an artist named Oda and befriended Hiroyuki. Unfortunately his battle instinct is desiring for his younger days as an invader, and Kirisaki would do anything to provoke this Nackle.
See Return of Ultraman

  • Art Evolution: Odyssa's suit is newly made and based after the very first Nackle from Return of Ultraman (save for its lack of "wrinkles") while the head is from Bandello.
  • Beam-O-War: Meets his end engaging in one with Taiga.
  • Blood Knight: Odyssa explains that his species is like this, possessing a natural instinct to fight.
  • Gender-Blender Name: Odyssa is a female given name that is seldom used in United States. Averted with his human name, Oda.
  • Intergenerational Friendship: The 50+ year old Odyssa as Oda with the 22 year old Hiroyuki Kudo.
  • Mythology Gag: Odyssa is said to have fought "a certain Ultraman" on an alien planet in 50 years prior at the sunset, based on Ultraman Jack's fight and defeat by both Alien Nackle and his Black King on sunset. Ironically, Odyssa's final fight with Taiga took place in the same scenery, which lead to the alien's own death.
  • Red Baron: He was known as the Warrior of the Evening Glow prior to his retirement.
  • Retired Badass: He has long forsaken his ways as an invader, but his species' natural fighting instinct wouldn't just sit down and let that happen.
  • Suicide by Cop: It's implied that Odyssa chooses death to end his suffering from losing his Black King and his instinct as an invader.

Black King

First Appearance: Warriors in the Evening Glow
Odyssa's former monster companion and partner-in-crime. The two wreaked havoc across the universe until they were both defeated by a mysterious Ultra. As a result, Odyssa chose to retire from his bloodthirsty ways and consequently sealed Black King in the form of an egg. But even in its egg, Black King still yearns for the good old days, and Kirisaki is all too eager to help Odyssa realize he still shares his monster's sentiments.
See Return of Ultraman

Maria

Portrayed by: Ryoko Oshima

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/maria_8.png

First Appearance: One Afternoon When the Magic Was Lost From the Star
A benevolent alien sorceress from the planet Sarasa, a world destroyed years ago by the monster Gimyra when it drained the planet of its natural magical energy, forcing her to flee to Earth where she lived in peace. However, her new life was interrupted by her magical powers being disrupted and drained by Gimyra's presence on Earth and by the Zelan known as Oshoro coming to the planet to kidnap her to help him control Gimyra.
  • Aliens Among Us: She's been living on Earth for several years after the destruction of Sarasa, with only her magical powers giving away her alien origins.
  • Cute Witch: She's a kind and pretty young lady with magical powers.
  • Human Aliens: She's never seen in any other form, but it's implied this may just be a disguise given that she states her homeworld is a planet entirely made of oceans.
  • Magic Wand: Carries one with her at all times, capable of all sorts of spells from erasing memories to making things levitate to transforming into a broom for flight.
  • Nice Girl: She's a kind and gentle girl who uses her powers for good. In her Establishing Character Moment, she uses her magic to give back a lost hat to a young girl.
  • Telepathy: She is able to read the minds of others, even sensing Taiga's presence inside of Hiroyuki's body.
  • Wizards from Outer Space: She's a witch from an ocean planet who channels the natural magical energy inherent to all planets.

Alien Zelan Oshoro

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

First Appearance: One Afternoon When the Magic Was Lost From the Star
An alien who sought to take control of the monster Gimyra, hoping to use its magic-consuming abilities to rob humans of their ability to dream. To this end, he hunted down Maria to help him control the beast, only for his schemes to be foiled by the accidental summoning of Pagos and Tregear taking interest in the monster for his own plans.
See Return of Ultraman

  • Mythology Gag: Oshoro's monster controlling device is identical to the one that the original Zelan used on the monster Plooma.
  • Sharp-Dressed Man: He wears a golden tuxedo similar to that of Berume.
  • Villain: Exit, Stage Left: He flees Earth on his spaceship after Gimyra is destroyed, lamenting the failure of his scheme.

Pagos

First Appearance: One Afternoon When the Magic Was Lost From the Star
A monster that was summoned by accident by Oshoro's monster-controlling device, which he intended to use on Gimyra. The creature was mistakenly assumed by Maria and EGIS to be responsible for the numerous strange tentacles that had been erupting from the ground to attack people and consume Earth's magic, but soon learned Pagos was actually fleeing the true culprit — Gimyra.
See Ultra Q

  • Achilles' Heel: Its soft underbelly is its only vulnerable point.
  • The Bus Came Back: Pagos' previous appearance? Ultra Q, 53 years ago.
  • Horn Attack: A new ability to Pagos in this series. It can fire a drill-shaped energy beam from its horns.
  • The Juggernaut: Proved highly resistant to almost all of the Tri-Squad's attacks, thanks to its thick skin, and was also physically strong enough to stand toe on toe with Titas' Super Strength.
  • Non-Malicious Monster: Pagos was a peaceful underground monster driven to the surface by Gimyra's part, where it went berserk only because of its inability to adjust to the surface world. The episode after its death even shows EGIS members paying respect to it.
  • Reality Ensues: After Pagos dies, construction vehicles and cleanup crews are seen working at disposing of the monster's petrified corpse. Word of God admits to have intentionally added this part to add a sense of realism to the aftermath of a kaiju attack.
  • Taken for Granite: Turns to stone upon death.
  • Took a Level in Badass: The original Pagos never fought any Ultras (since they hadn't been introduced to the franchise yet) and was killed by the power of science. Here, it fought against all three Tri-Squad members and can even withstand Titas' punches.

Gimyra

First Appearance: One Afternoon When the Magic Was Lost From the Star
A vile alien monster that travels from planet to planet, draining inhabitants of their life and worlds of their magic. After destroying Maria's homeworld of Sarasa, the monster came to Earth, where it terrorized Japan by striking from underground with its tentacle-like tongue and was sought after by both Oshoro and Tregear, who hoped to utilize its powers against humanity.
See Ultraman 80

  • Half the Man He Used to Be : Was cleaved into half vertically by Taiga's energy beam.
  • Magic Eater: Drains planets of their natural magical energy, causing Maria to lose her powers and humans to lose the ability to dream.

Gigadelos

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

First Appearance: The Power to Protect and the Power to Fight
A series of robot monsters created by an alien scientist named Ilt to protect planets from kaiju. However, Tregear tampered with their programming by inserting his personality into them, causing the machines to go berserk and destroy the very planets they were protecting. Ilt managed to get rid of most of them, but the last surviving model was then brought by Kirisaki to Earth, where Ilt came to stop it.
  • Achilles' Heel: Ultrasonic waves like those produced by the Night Fang Ring nullify its duplication powers, and will even cause any existing clones to remerge into a singular Gigadelos.
  • A.I. Is a Crapshoot: The Gigadelos were a series of guardian robots built for different planets until Tregear tampered with their programming to attack the inhabitants and even each other.
  • Arm Cannon: Its left hand is equipped with a series of small machine guns.
  • Batman Gambit: Its true purpose was to descend Taiga further into darkness through his continuous usage of the Kaiju Rings.
  • Blade Below the Shoulder: Its right hand is equipped with a massive sword.
  • Humongous Mecha: One constructed by an alien scientist to defend various planets, only for everything to go horribly wrong.
  • Hydra Problem: Its main ability is to split into a pair of clones whenever it is struck by energy attacks (such as the Finishing Moves of Ultras). These clones can split even further.
  • The Juggernaut: Definitely one of Taiga's strongest opponents yet. Had Taiga not use the Night Fang Ring, Gigadelos would have easily been victorious.
  • Purple Is Powerful: And how! It's got a lot of purple in is colour scheme and the only thing that can destroy it was another model of it.

Ilt

Portrayed by: Airu Shiozaki

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

First Appearance: The Power to Protect and the Power to Fight
An alien scientist who constructed the Gigadelos robots to protect numerous planets across his galaxy. Unfortunately, Tregear meddled with the robots to turn them evil, forcing him to destroy all of his creations. Unfortunately, it turned out the evil Ultra had brought the very last Gigadelos to Earth to use against Taiga, forcing Ilt to come to the planet and destroy it.
  • Gadgeteer Genius: He constructed a series of immensely powerful, self-duplicating giant robots to protect an entire galaxy. Granted, things ended up going horribly wrong, thanks to Tregear, but still.
  • Human Aliens: Appears as one as he's never seen in any other form.
  • It's Personal: He intended to destroy Tregear's Gigadelos by himself, due to his history with the robot.
  • My Greatest Failure: Considered his construction of Gigadelos to be this due to the robots going rogue and forcing him to destroy all of them as a result.
  • Unwitting Pawn: As if the rampage of his creation Gigadelos across the universe wasn't enough, he didn't took it well when one model was exploited by Tregear as part of a Batman Gambit to slowly corrupt Taiga to the dark side.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: He kidnapped Hiroyuki and stole the Taiga Accessories that allow the Tri-Squad to transform, believing that Hiroyuki wielding said power was too dangerous for Earth. Eventually he realized his mistake shortly after.

Moko

First Appearance: I Can't Hear Your Voice
A small fuzzy alien creature belonging to a species known as the Lunah. Moko was the pet of a boy named Kanta, who come to EGIS for help when he lost the creature. Eventually, Hiroyuki and Kanta discovered that Moko had been captured by the Chibu scientist Mabuze for his vile experiments.
See Ultraman Geed

  • Mythology Gag: Moko was also the name of the Lunah that appeared in Ultraman Geed.
  • Telepathy / The Empath: Can read other beings' minds and feel their emotions, such as Skull Gomora's pain and distress when a berserk and corrupted Taiga begins brutally pummelling the creature.

Alien Chibu Mabuze

Voiced by: Takahiro Mizushima

First Appearance: I Can't Hear Your Voice
An alien Mad Scientist who kidnaps various little critters for all sorts of horrible projects. To this end, he kidnapped Moko, which leads EGIS and Kanta to his lab, where they discover that the alien scientist has acquired DNA from Gomora, Red King, and Ultraman Belial from the Villain Guild and is planning to use those DNA samples to create the perfect lifeform. He later returns to assist Alien Sran, Alien Godola, and Alien Zarab in defeating the Tri-Squad and Tregear by creating a mindless clone of Ultraman Belial called Imit-Belial to fight the four Ultras.
See Ultraseven

  • Back for the Dead: He returns in episode 23, where he finally makes an in-flesh appearance. Of course, this seals the deal of his final fate.
  • Didn't Think This Through: His Fatal Flaw. He and his cronies realized way too late after juicing up the Imitation Belial with too much of the evil Ultra's cells, causing the clone to turn against its creator and kill him.
  • Evil Is Not a Toy: Mabuze soon learns the hard way that giving too much Belial cells on the Belial clone caused it to turn against its creator.
  • Foreshadowing: It seems that Mabuze is not the only one exploiting some of Belial's genetic essences, the next season after ''Taiga'' introduces the Devil Splinters, which is also revealed to be essences of Belial scattered across the multiverses.
  • For Science!: His motivation, which he proudly proclaims can be realized by bypassing one's morality.
  • Freeze-Frame Bonus: Aside from Moko, some of his captives include Alien Galo, Dethmon, Purana, Baby Samekujira, Lim. Eleking and Baby Vadata.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: He was killed after Imit-Belial (his own creation) accidentally crashed the building where he based on.
  • Hologram: He only appears as such in his debut episode.
  • Mad Scientist: He captures various small creatures in order to conduct evil experiments on them, seeks to create the ultimate lifeform, and even created a mindless clone of one of the franchise's biggest Big Bads to destroy the heroes. To drive the point even further, he claims that the full potential of science can only be realized by disregarding the limits of morality.
  • Meaningful Name: He's name after Dr. Mabuse, a literary character created by German author Norbert Jacques.
  • Mecha-Mooks: He has several Chiburoids under his service that guard his lab.
  • Proud Scholar Race: Proclaims that his species' science is the best in the universe as his Famous Last Words.
  • Too Dumb to Live: He probably should've known better about giving too much of Belial's cells on the Imitation Belial, and what happened next led to his death.

Skull Gomora

First Appearance: I Can't Hear Your Voice
Originally introduced as one of the many Belial Fusion Beasts battled by Ultraman Geed, this version of the creature is the culmination of a project by Mabuze to create the perfect lifeform, using DNA samples taken from Gomora, Red King and Ultraman Belial that were somehow acquired by the Villain Guild and sold to him at one of their auctions.
See Ultraman Geed

  • Mook Horror Show: Is the receiving end of Taiga's corruption-induced rampage, first by having its horns severed, then gets a brutal beating before being blown into smithereens by Aurum Strium. Definitely not a good way to go.
  • Shock and Awe: An ability new to Skull Gomora in this series. When Taiga jumps onto its back to gain an advantage during the fight, the monster channels electricity through its body to electrocute and dislodge him.
  • Ultimate Lifeform: Mabuze considers it to be this.

Alien Semon Meed

Portrayed by: Sento Takemori

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

First Appearance: Guardian Angel
An alien conman who Kana had arrested several times in the past, forming a sort of friendship with him as a result. After his latest release from prison, he has decided to return to his home planet, but since he lacks the money to do so, he has stolen a monster-controlling device from the Villain Guild to sell to an Alien Kukaratch named Hoshijin, which also means he has to turn to his old friend for protection from pursuing Villain Guild thugs.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: He was killed by Kirisaki while shielding Kana from the blow meant for her. He was the first victim that signify Kirisaki's attempt to harass Hiroyuki.
  • Human Aliens: Appears as one, although it's implied to be a disguise.
  • I Lied: Happily admits to this to Kana when EGIS learns that the rendezvous point he wanted them to escort him to was not to be picked up by others of his kind to return home but actually to sell the stolen monster-controlling device he had been carrying with him in secret.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: He may be a sleazy, lying conman who will do anything for money, but he struck a genuine friendship with Kana, showed kindness towards children, and openly states he only works as a conman because of how difficult life as an alien living on Earth is. And then there's the moment when he Took The Bullet meant for his friend.
  • Odd Friendship: He's a lying alien con artist who befriended Kana, a former law enforcement official. He seems to have a deep admiration for her too, calling her "a guardian angel to aliens everywhere".
  • Took The Bullet: His death.

Demaaga

First Appearance: Guardian Angel
A fiery subterranean monster summoned by Kirisaki when he hacked into the monster controlling device that Meed was intent on selling for cash to return to his home planet, forcing Hiroyuki to choose between helping his friends as they were fighting Villain Guild thugs or helping the city as Demaaga rampaged through it.
See Ultraman X

Alien Bat Seiji Komori and Alien Pitt Hitomi Mizuno

Portrayed by: Masanori Mimoto (Seiji Komori) and Seiko Iwaido (Hitomi Mizuno)

First Appearance: For The New World
Alien partners living together in human disguises. The two had lived in peace for most of their time on Earth, but things changed with Kirisaki paid them a visit and convinced Komori that aliens should not be living in disguise among humans but openly ruling over them. As a result, Komori became bitter about how aliens would never be able to come out in the open on Earth.
See Return of Ultraman for Alien Bat and Ultraseven for Alien Pitt

  • Aliens Among Us: They lived on Earth as perfectly normal people for many years until Kirisaki filled Komori's head with alien supremacist nonsense in order to cause chaos.
  • Hand Blast: Komori uses a variant that binds Hiroyuki in energy and levitates him.
  • Interspecies Romance: They're the first ever cross-species relationship in the Ultra Series not involving humans and Human Aliens.
  • Punny Name / Bilingual Bonus: "Komori" means "bat" in Japanese, which hints to Seiji Komori's true identity as an Alien Bat.
  • Shock and Awe: Komori displayed the ability to electrocute others by grasping them — an ability not seen in other incarnations of Alien Bat.
  • Token Heroic Orc: Komori is the very first Alien Bat that isn't outright evil, with his brief stint as a villain being a result of Kirisaki's machinations.

Bemular

First Appearance: For The New World
A monster battled at the beginning of the episode by Fuma and Titas. The creature was quickly dispatched by the latter hero, but unbeknownst to them or anyone else, it had actually been released by an Alien Hook who had been convinced by Kirisaki to unleash the creature after the disguised evil Ultra told the alien the same ideas that he fed Komori.
See Ultraman TV Series

Zetton

First Appearance: For The New World

A monster lent to Komori and Hitomi by Kirisaki after he told the two that aliens did not deserve to live in disguise amongst humans but rather should be ruling over them. Komori unleashed Zetton on the city as part of a plot to bring upheaval to human society so that the aliens could finally come out of hiding and take what he believed to be their rightful places as humanity's superiors.

Gorothunder

Portrayed by: Takanori Tsujimoto (voice)

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ultraman_taiga_gorothunder_render_by_zer0stylinx_ddmincf_fullview.png

First Appearance: Withstand the Lightning Strike!
A space monster possessing great strength and a love for battle, Gorothunder is spoken of across the universe as a god of thunder that brings calamity to any who meet him. The electrical creature was summoned to Earth by Tregear to defeat the Tri-Squad by having the monster trap Kana in the its navel gem to emotionally wound Hiroyuki (who had been demoralized by Kirisaki's deliberate targeting of his friends).
  • Abhorrent Admirer: Gorothunder has an affinity for Kana, hence his reason of placing her in the gem on his belly button. Considering his looks, it's surely going to be a one-sided crush.
  • Beware the Silly Ones: Despite his comedic behaviour and oddball appearance, he's a very powerful fighter and actually manages to put up a serious challenge for the Tri-Squad.
  • Blood Knight: He loves to fight for the sake of it.
  • Carry a Big Stick: Has a giant wooden club for a weapon.
  • The Dreaded: He's famed as a harbinger of doom, so much so that even the Tri-Squad knows full well of his fearsome reputation despite all three of them coming from different worlds.
  • Expy: The director states that Gorothunder is designed after the lighthearted and whimsical fairy tale-inspired monsters of Ultraman Taro, particularly Live King, who shares his large belly, duck-like bill, and humorous disposition.
  • Fighting Clown: Despite his infamous in-universe reputation, Gorothunder is depicted as a more lighthearted creature compared to most of the other kaiju the Tri-Squad fight, with his battle against Taiga having a handful of humorous moments.
  • Flying on a Cloud: His shrunken human size uses this as a form of transportation.
  • Gasshole: He manages to propel himself quite high into the sky by simply unleashing a very powerful fart.
  • God of Thunder: Based on one and described by the Tri-Squad as being known as one across the cosmos.
  • Hammered into the Ground: Ultraman Titas defeats him this way.
  • I Have Your Wife: Traps Kana in his bellybutton gem as a leverage for the Tri-Squad.
  • Oni: While he does have some traits shared with them, he is actually based on the Shinto lightning god Raijin, who creates the sound of thunder by beating his drums, which have Tomoe markings on them (just like Gorothunder's chest). Raijin is also said to steal the uncovered bellybuttons of children who go out during a thunderstorm, hence why the Gorothunder's bellybutton is so prominent.
  • Primal Chest-Pound: Performs this in order to charge up his electrical attacks.
  • Sizeshifter: Grew into a human-sized being on a cloud to a giant monster by beating his chest.
  • Shock and Awe: His main ability revolves around lightning. By simply drumming the Tomoe symbols on his chest, Gorothunder can generate enough voltage from the spikes on his shoulders to be fired at opponents from his palms.
  • Thunder Drum: His sound cue is drumbeats, befitting of his inspirations and chest-beating.
  • Tractor Beam: The gem covering his bellybutton can perform this, which Gorothunder uses to capture Kana.

Aribunta

First Appearance: Sand Castle
A tunnelling ant-like monster utilized by Villain Guild members Zolin and El-Ray to destroy power plants belonging to an Earth-based energy company called Eneclone as part of an elaborate scheme to exploit and take over the Earth stock market.
See Ultraman Ace

Alien Ghose

First Appearance: Friend in Earth
An unintelligible alien who had lived on Earth in peace for many years. While he currently has plans to return home, he becomes the unfortunate target of Kirisaki, who has been goading a new EGIS recruit named Osamu Tasaki to attack the innocent alien by manipulating Osamu's hatred of aliens following the hospitalization of his mother during Zetton's rampage from earlier.
See Ultraseven

  • Aliens Among Us: He lived a normal life as a street food vendor and posed no threat to anyone on Earth. Unfortunately, Kirisaki needed something from him and manipulated the Fantastic Racism of EGIS' new recruit to get it.
  • Mind Control: Due to the fact his species are The Unintelligible, he mind controls Homare and projects his speech through him in order to communicate in Japanese with Osamu Tasaki.
  • Mythology Gag: Ghose's spaceship resembles a smaller version of the box-like object the original Ghose aliens released Pandon from during their invasion of Earth. It's even equipped with a smaller and less powerful version of the drill-tipped missiles the aliens used to destroy major cities in their debut.
  • Small Role, Big Impact: Although only a minor character in the great series, the missiles on his spaceship contained the tools Kirisaki needed to call forth Woola to Earth.

Pandon

First Appearance: Friend in Earth
Alien Ghose's longtime monster companion. The two-headed, one-necked creature arose from its hiding place when its alien owner was threatened by a xenophobic EGIS recruit named Osamu Tasaki, who was convinced Alien Ghose had been storing the monster for an invasion of Earth.
See Ultraseven

  • Non-Malicious Monster: This Pandon is not relatively dangerous and is only trying to protect the Alien Ghose, who it saw as its parent.
  • Not So Different: Pandon was only driven berserk because of its owner/"parent", Alien Ghose, was threatened by Osamu Tasaki, a teenager who became prejudiced against aliens after his mother was hospitalized as a result of Zetton's attack earlier.
  • Gigantic Adults, Tiny Babies: A flashback shows Alien Ghoe taking care of Pandon as a chick, showing the creature to be the size of a baseball. Try comparing that to its actual 40-meter height as an adult.
  • Shoot the Shaggy Dog: Although Pandon stops fighting Taiga after the misunderstandings were cleared, it was killed by Tregear shortly after. The evil Ultra even revealed that he was expecting Taiga to kill the monster, further adding salt to the wound if his previous act wasn't enough.
  • Undying Loyalty: As Ghose's Pet Monstrosity, the monster will stop at nothing to protect its master.

Takkong

First Appearance: What's up with Takkong?

An octopus-based guardian monster from the depths of the sea. It having fought against Giestron and sealed the monster away years ago, but in in the present day, Giestron threatens to return and Takkong is now too weak to battle it as a result of old age. Thus, the strange sea monster must join forces with the Tri-Squad joining forces with the Tri-Squad to fight against its old rival.


See Return of Ultraman

  • All There in the Manual: Contrary to popular belief, its Breath Weapon of fire and oil isn't new to this series, but was predated since as far as early magazines from 1990 and 1984.
  • Adaptational Heroism: Most versions of Takkong are either villainous or animalistic, but this Takkong is the guardian of humanity themselves.
  • Breath Weapon: Breathes a stream of fire from its mouth.
  • Feeling Their Age: According to Shinji, Takkong was originally powerful enough to even rival Giestron in its younger years. It can still prove as a challenge to its rival in the present day, but its old age made Takkong weaker than how it used to be.
  • Funny Octopus: In its first appearance, where the Tri-Squad mistook it for an enemy, Takkong hardly ever made an effort to defend itself and was being comical, proving itself only as a nuisance to the three with its octopus-based abilities.
  • Invisibility: Can turn invisible in the same way an octopus can camouflage itself.
  • Mythology Gag: Takkong's role as having to battle an updated version of Earthtron references the fact the two monsters debuted in the same episode.
  • Spin Attack: By exhaling fire and spinning rapidly, Takkong creates a barrier of fire around it to deflect attacks from Giestron and then ram itself into the enemy.
  • Super Spit: Can spray slippery ink from its mouth.
  • Took a Level in Badass: True to being an opponent of Giestron before, Takkong possess additional abilities, such as fire breath and invisibility. If Shinji's claims were to be true, Takkong could have been the strongest monster if it was in an appropriate age before.

Shinji

Portrayed by: Ayumu Yokoyama

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/shinji_0.png

First Appearance: What's up with Takkong?
A mysterious young boy whose serves as the messenger and herald of the guardian sea monster Takkong. He approached Hiroyuki and asked for the Tri-Squad's help to assist said monster in against Giestron.
  • Ambiguously Human: At first glance, he appears to be nothing more than just a young boy, but it's heavily implied he's entirely related to Takkong in some way as he shows some clearly extraordinary qualities like already knowing that Hiroyuki was the human host of the Tri-Squad and the ability to command and understand Takkong. Furthermore, at the end of the episode that he reveals his limbs to be octopus tentacles.
  • Expy: Of Shinichi, the mysterious young boy who served as the envoy of the Nonmalts in Ultraseven. Their names are even one kana apart, Shinichi and Shinji.
  • Herald: Of Takkong, acting as the monster's messenger and servant.

Giestron

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ultraman_taiga_giestron_render_by_zer0stylinx_ddminc2_fullview.png
First Appearance: What's up with Takkong?

An updated version of Earthtron that represents the fury of the Earth itself towards human pollution and land development. Giestron was originally defeated and sealed away by Takkong some time in the past, but as its rival grew weaker with old age, the monster was able to resurface from its prison to carry out the task of cleansing the land and humanity.


See the Return of Ultraman Character Sheet for tropes that also apply to Earthtron

  • Blade Below the Shoulder: Its body spikes even extend to its arms, allowing it to use them as weapons.
  • Canon Immigrant: Giestron was first used as a stageshow-exclusive suit in Ultraman Festival 2019 before appearing in episode 22 of Taiga.
  • Gaia's Vengeance: Shinji describes Giestron as the rage of Earth itself, saying the creature was angered by human activities and is trying to eliminate humanity in hopes of cleansing the Earth of the damage they've done.
  • Horn Attack: Replacing Earthtron's traditional magma beam Breath Weapon, Giestron can fire a laser beam from its horn that is able to cut through structures with ease.
  • Magma Man: Gistron can channel electromagnetic energy in order to cause volcanic eruptions.
  • Mythology Gag: It's an updated version of Earthtron appearing alongside Takkong, referencing how the two kaiju debuted together in the first episode of Return of Ultraman.
  • Sword Beam: Can fire a purplish variant that spins in akin to a boomerang.

Alien Godola, Alien Sran, and Alien Zarab

First Appearance: Clash! Ultra Big Match
A bungling trio of alien criminals fed up with the constant interference that Ultraman Tregear and the Tri-Squad had done for various evil aliens' schemes. The Alien Chibu known as Mabuze all too eager to help the three get rid of the four Ultras, offering his services in the form of a mindless clone of Ultraman Belial he created specifically to destroy the Tri-Squad and Tregear.
See Ultraseven for Alien Godola, Ultraman Max for Alien Sran, and Ultraman TV Series for Alien Zarab

  • Forgot About His Powers: Subverted. Zarab proposes the plan of disguising himself as Ultraman Taiga to ruin his reputation, just like how his previous generations did before, but his other teammates are against the idea, since Tregear will also appear to kick his butt.

Imit-Ultraman Belial

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/_282.jpg

First Appearance: Clash! Ultra Big Match
A mindless clone of Ultraman Belial created by Mabuze from evil Ultra's DNA. The evil alien lent the monster to the trio of Godola, Sran, and Zarab to help them defeat the Tri-Squad and Tregear. Lacking the original Belial's intelligence and retaining all of his strength, the Tri-Squad and Tregear were challenged by this monster until Ultraman Zero showed up to even the odds.
For tropes that also apply to the original Ultraman Belial, see the Ultraman Zero Character Sheet.

  • Artificial Human: It's a mindless clone of Ultraman Belial. The only physical difference between the clone and the original Belial is that the clone's crest and claws are gold instead of black
  • Dumb Muscle: He evidently only has Belial's strength and lust for battle, but lacks his calculating and scheming mind.
  • Enemy Mine: It didn't last long, but Imit-Belial and Tregear were more than willing to stand side-by-side to fight both Zero and Taiga, to the point of trading opponents.
  • Fake Shemp: He only laughs and grunts in his appearances, due to the fact that he is a mindless clone to begin with. Because of this, said grunts and laughs were recycled from past appearances of the original Belial, particularly that of Yuki Ono's stock voices.
  • Human Shield: Is killed when he is forcibly used as a shield by Tregear in order to protect himself from Taiga Tri-Strium's Taiga Dynamite Shoot.
  • Mythology Gag: Its gold and/or yellow bits on the fingers and head crest are based on the defects of Alien Zarab's disguises as Imitation Ultraman from the original series, all while an Alien Zarab happens to appear in the same episode as Imit-Belial.
  • Shock and Awe: Shoots lightning bolts from his claws as part of his first attack after scanning his surroundings upon creation.
  • Ultimate Showdown of Ultimate Destiny: A battle of Ultras between a pair of Spin-Offspring children of Ultra Brothers' members (Taiga and Zero), versus Fallen Hero duo (Belial and Tregear). The result is very spectacular as it takes almost half of the show's screen time. It's even lampshaded in the episode title.

Woola

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

First Appearance: I'm Pirika
A monster born from the space trash of countless advanced alien civilizations, Woola is a creature of insatiable hunger that travels from planet to planet consuming everything in its path. Tregear called the creature to Earth (with a little unwilling help from Pirika and Alien Ghose) for one last grand scheme of chaos-raising, subsequently reawakening a long-lost directive of Pirika she had been holding in secret from the rest of EGIS.
  • Big Eater: The creature is so ravenous that it consumes entire planets and everything on their surface in an attempt to slake its endless hunger.
  • Black Hole Belly: A non-attack variation. Inside its stomach is a miniature Unrealistic Black Hole that absorbs anything Woola eats, making the monster constantly hungry.
  • Came from the Sky: Lands on Earth in the form of a giant meteor.
  • Eldritch Abomination: An even worse take of Yumenokatamari, Woola is a living heap of space trash formed in the likeness of a monster whose lot in life is to eat anything in its path due to being cursed to never have its hunger satiated.
  • Energy Absorption: It manages to eat Taiga Tri-Strium's Tri Strium Burst before biting Taiga's arm to absorb his energy.
  • Everything's Better with Dinosaurs: Despite being a living mass of space junk, Woola's physical appearance bears resemblance to an Earth dinosaur, specifically a T-rex, with its giant head and tiny arms.
  • Extreme Omnivore: Will consume literally anything from buildings to energy attacks to other kaiju to entire planets.
  • I Cannot Self-Terminate: Woola's constant hunger was its own curse, and it sought to find someone that could free it from its own existence.
  • Laser-Guided Karma: Woola was born as a result of alien civilizations dumping their trash into outer space. As a fitting end, the first planet that Woola ate was the very one responsible for its birth.
  • Meaningful Name: Woola's name comes from the Chinese phrase for "I am hungry" (我饿了, Wǒ è le), which lends credence to the monster's never-ending gluttony.
  • Mercy Kill: Being fed with Taiga and Tregear's energy beam allowed Woola to finally dissipate into energy and free itself from its own existence.
  • Non-Malicious Monster: Despite being a notorious Planet Eater, Woola's status is actually more like a curse to itself than anything else and it ultimately seeks to be freed from the suffering of its never-ending starvation. When EGIS managed to temporarily neutralize the black hole in its belly, Wool supported Taiga by attempting to bite Tregear.
  • Number of the Beast: The countdown to Woola's arrival on Earth starts at 666.
  • Planet Eater: Woola first eats the crust of a planet (and everything on said crust) before burrowing itself underground and eating the planet's core, destroying the planet.
  • Tunnel King: Woola largely gets around by burrowing, consuming everything above it.
  • Unrealistic Black Hole: Contains one inside of its stomach, hence its unending appetite.
  • The Worf Effect: The first thing it does when it shows up is eat Galactron MK 2 while Taiga is in the middle of fighting the infamously powerful robot monster.

    Ultra Galaxy Fight 

Peguila

A giant monster that threaten a lone Ragon on Planet Liquitor. He is also Ultraman Ribut's Starter Villain in his live action debut.
See Ultra Q

  • The Bully: Peguila seems to have no ulterior motive to hunt Ragon, other than simply picking on the harmless creature.

Ragon


See Ultra Q

Red King and Red King II

A pair of monsters sent by Ultraman Tregear to cover his escape and fight against Ribut. This is the first time since 52 years that the second generation of Red King appear in the TV series.
See Ultraman TV Series

  • Co-Dragons: They serve as Tregear's servant in covering his escape.
  • Mythology Gag: Both Red Kings were killed by Ribut's Remote Cutter circular saws. The Red King II can be seen sliced in the same way the original Ultraman did to him in episode 25 of his original series.
