Ultraman X

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ultraman_x_3.png

Voiced by: Yuuichi Nakamura
The titular Ultra, he once tried to stop Greeza in space. As they traveled in the solar system, they clashed against each other until X throws him into the sun but it eventually causes the Ultra Flare incident to happened. At that time, the solar flare also turned his body into a mass of data and thus, he seeks Daichi's help to regain his old form.
  • Bash Brothers: With Daichi.
  • The Cape: As typical of most Ultramen, X is very much a straightforward, noble hero.
  • Equippable Ally: X can utilize the Cyber Cards, which contain data of Cyber Monsters, to materialize on Ultraman X Mons Armors — sets of armor and weaponry based on classic Ultra Kaiju.
    • Gomora Armor:
      • Finishing Move: The Gomora Oscillatory Wave, based on Gomora's Super Oscillatory Wave and used in a similar fashion (except fired from his hands).
      • Shout-Out: All of us were hyped when we realized that the Gomora Armor looks like WarGreymon from Digimon franchise.
      • Wolverine Claws: The Gomora Claws on his armor — enlarged, cybernetic versions of Gomora's own claws.
    • Eleking Armor:
      • Arm Cannon: The BFG on its left arm.
      • Finishing Move: The Eleking Electric Shockwave, which is a huge beam of lightning fired from its Arm Cannon.
      • Shock and Awe: Since it's based on Eleking. According to X, Eleking Armor allows him to control electricity, but in the series, he only uses it to create a rope of electrical energy based on Eleking's Prehensile Tail.
    • Bemstar Armor:
    • Zetton Armor:
      • Arm Cannon: Is equipped with two of these on each arm.
      • Barrier Warrior: The arm cannons can also produce Zetton's infamous force field, the Zetton Shutter.
      • Playing with Fire: Taken from Zetton's ability to shoot fireballs, the Zetton Armor can shoot a powerful fireball to burn monsters into crisp.
      • Spin Attack: A modification of the Zetton Shutter, Ultraman X creates a force field around himself before spinning rapidly like a tornado and slamming himself into the enemy like a gigantic crystal shard.
      • Super Strength: Even by Ultra Standards, because it uses Zetton's strength stacked on top of Ultraman X's.
      • Teleport Spam: Inherited from Zetton, though X does it by temporarily digitizing himself to move about.
    • Hybrid Armor:
    • Xlugger:
  • Fusion Dance:
    • With all the Spark Dolls in the finale in order to gain his Hybrid Armor form.
    • While the Beta Spark is just another, albeit very strong armor, Ultraman and Ultraman Tiga fuse with him to give him the added boost to put Zaigorg down for good.
  • Let X Be the Unknown: Daichi originally gives X that name because of how little Xio knows about him.
  • Motor Mouth: Downplayed. X isn't a chatterbox in-series, but he and Daichi are unusual in that they actually have a bond that grows throughout the series. Usually the Ultraman doesn't get this level of dialogue or development, but X stands out.
  • My Greatest Failure: X thought that when he threw the villain into the sun, he ended its reign of terror. However, the villain's death unleashed uncontrollable energy which then reacted with the sun and initiated the Ultra Flare. This leads to an awakening and subsequent rampage of slumbering spark dolls.
  • Sealed Good in a Can: Or sealed good in cyberspace.

    Xio (Xeno Invasion Outcutters) 

Daichi Ozora

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/daichi_2.png

The protagonist of the series, Daichi is a member of Xio's Lab Team Division, but often joins the attack team on the battle field, where he uses the X Devizer to transform into Ultraman X. He owns a Spark Doll of Gomora, his beloved companion since his parents vanished in the Spark Flare incident when he was just five.
  • Conveniently an Orphan: Daichi loses his parents 15 years ago in the Ultra Flare when his dad's office was mysteriously digitized.
  • Friend to All Living Things: His ultimate dream is to see a world where kaiju and humans can live together peacefully, so naturally, he's this.
  • Gadgeteer Genius: Builds at least one of Ultraman X's armors from scratch.
  • Memento MacGuffin: After his parents' disappearance, he keeps the Gomora Spark Doll from his dad and the space communicator from his mother.
  • Technical Pacifist: Wants peace between humans and monsters, but willing to fight to save people if need be.
  • Thou Shalt Not Kill: Daichi is a pacifistic person, wishes that one day, humans will peacefully coexist with monsters. This eventually fits him partnering with X, as the Ultra turns monsters into Spark Dolls.

  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Despite her bad criticism towards Asuna in episode 3 for her mistake, she buys her a new pair of shoes for her birthday present.

  • The Smart Guy: Tactical leader
  • Team Mom: She's a mom herself and shares that affection with her subordinates.

Dr. Guruman

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

Xio's Alien Fanton inventor and the main benefactor for their technologies, as head of the Lab Team. He is the only member of the team aware that Daichi is Ultraman X.
For tropes applying to the Alien Fanton in general, see the Ultraman Mebius Character Sheet

  • All There in the Manual: According to the magazines, the Fantonian race were one of the founders of Xio alongside United Nations. They also said that should Xio went out of food supply, Guruman has an emergency C-Pin 929 stored inside.
  • Amusing Alien: He could be pretty silly sometimes.
  • Big Eater: He eats thirteen meals a day due to his race being gluttonous.
  • Gadgeteer Genius: He created the Cyber Kaiju technology Xio and Ultraman X use.
  • Genius Ditz: Is the main supporter to Xio's techs but on one occasion drank Rui's invisible potion by accident.
  • Heavy Sleeper: When he sleeps from his post lunch, almost nothing is capable of awakening him.
  • Meaningful Name: Due to his species being a race of Big Eaters, it's appropriate that his name is derived from the Japanese pronunciation of "gourmet" or "gourmand".
  • The Professor: Fills this role for Xio quite often. He's quite versed in alien history and culture, as well as science, allowing him to fill the humans in on any aliens they meet.
  • Secret Secret-Keeper: Implied to be the only one who knows Daichi is Ultraman X (at least before the finale)).
  • Spell My Name with an "S": Sometimes translated as "Dr. Gourman".

Cyber Gomora/Gomora/EX Gomora

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

First Appearance: An Unknown Friend (Gomora and EX Gomora appear in "Living Together")
Daichi's prized Spark Doll companion from his childhood and the main subject of Xio's tests to resurrect Spark Dolls safely, Gomora is eventually resurrected as Cyber Gomora in the battle against King Joe. Afterwards, Xio would use Cyber Gomora to fight other monsters like Zaragas and Gomess. Towards the end of the series, they successfully revive Gomora in his normal form, only for Dark Thunder Energy to transform it into the out-of-control EX Gomora.
See the Ultraman Character Sheet for tropes applying to Gomora in general

  • Adaptational Heroism: This is the second heroic Gomora in the franchise after the one from Ultra Galaxy Mega Monster Battle. Likewise, he also possesses the Super Oscillatory Wave.
  • Empowered Badass Normal: Gomora is already a serious badass, but as Cyber Gomora, it's taken Up to Eleven.
  • Humongous Mecha: As Cyber Gomora, a materialized version of Ultraman X's Cyber Gomora Card.
  • Mythology Gag:
    • The series Blu-Ray release reveals Daichi's father discovered Gomora's Spark Doll on a place called Johnson Island — the island where Science Patrol countered the original Gomora in Ultraman!
    • His battle against Zaragas was an homage to Mega Monster Battle: Ultra Galaxy Legends, in which the other heroic Gomora of theUltra Series battled the monster.
  • Power Fist: As Cyber Gomora, Gomora's normal punches are enhanced with the ability to charge its claws with energy. Often used in combination with the Super Oscillatory Wave for maximum damage.
  • Sealed Good in a Can: Due to the fact that he's in the form of a Spark Doll for the first half of the series.
  • Superpowered Evil Side: EX Gomora when he gets hit by a bolt of Dark Thunder Energy.
  • Undying Loyalty: Gomora and Daichi are very close companions, as they've only had each other for the past fifteen years. Gomora is thus very loyal to Daichi and Ultraman X, first manifesting as Cyber Gomora as a result of its determination to help him battle King Joe.

    Monsters and Aliens 

Demaaga

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

  • Breath Weapon: Able to breathe a heat beam.
  • Everything's Better with Dinosaurs: Molten iron dinosaurs!
  • Expy: Of Zambolar from the original Ultraman, who had many of Demaaga's powers. The primary difference was that Zambolar was a quadruped.
  • Extra-ore-dinary: Demaaga's body is 79% molten iron.
  • Not Zilla: The design borrows heavily from Godzilla, much like Earthtron. But like Earthtron, Demaaga is an original suit.
  • Our Demons Are Different: Described in ancient texts as an "iron demon" and confirmed by Word of God to literally originate from Hell like Zaigorg.
  • Playing with Fire: His powers were all based on fire, as he is capable of launching fireballs from his spikes and unleashes the deadly heat ray from his mouth.

Birdon

First Appearance: A Collection of Possibilities
A pregnant female monster that had been constructing a nest and attacking vehicles passing through her home in order to prepare for the arrival of her egg.
See Ultraman Taro

Underground Woman

First Appearance: The Song that Calls the Night
Portrayed by: Hinako Saeki
A mysterious lady that, according to urban legends, if one was unlucky to encounter in the subway systems at night, would unleash a scream that caused the ground to devour the victim (implied to actually be Telesdon attacking). She despises humanity for brightening the night with their city lights, but what baffles Xio further is her identity.
See Ultraman

  • Urban Legend: The subject of one.

Alien Zarab

First Appearance: All for One
Voiced by: You Murakami
A wicked alien criminal who somehow got his hands on the Bemstar Spark Doll. He plans to use the monster to defeat Ultraman X, allowing him to then destroy Earth without any opposition.
See Ultraman.

  • Art Evolution: Due to a refurbishing of the suit, Zarab's body is now a darker shade of gray with a smaller head and a skinnier form. Additionally, the mouth was changed to more closely resemble Bemstar's Belly Mouth to play up their connection.
  • Forgot About His Powers: This is the first series in which Alien Zarab never uses his shapeshifting powers, which writer Hisako Kurosawa would later state regret for not including into the story.
  • Mad Bomber: He makes a career of destroying other planets.
  • Mythology Gag: The remote detonator he uses resembles a tiny version of the translator the original Alien Zarab carried with him. Could be an in-joke by the writer's part.

Bemstar

First Appearance: All for One
Alien Zarab's monster, which the wicked invader used to get rid of Ultraman X by having Bemstar devour X and then sending the creature to hide on the Moon where it could digest the Ultraman in peace while he dealt with Xio.
See Return of Ultraman

  • Black Hole Belly: Literally too, although not seen in Bemstar's previous appearances.
  • Magma Man: Bemstar's Black Hole Belly Mouth contains what is called a Magma Enzyme, which basically turns Bemstar's stomach into a volcano that digests anything swimming in its lava.
  • Unrealistic Black Hole: Bemstar's gorge sucks up objects like a black hole in this series, up to and including Ultraman X.

Alien Nackle Bandero

First Appearance: When the Aegis Shines
Voiced by: Tetsuo Kishi

First Appearance: The Man with the Memories of a Planet
The mechanical guardian of Planet Gold, Rudian was hidden by tE-rU's ancestors as a Spark Doll on Earth in case of great danger. So when the monster Gargorgon attacks Earth in search of the alien prince, he resurrects the robot to fight alongside Ultraman X.
  • Arm Cannon: Its gattling gun arms are able to fire powerful missiles from the center.
  • Crippling Overspecialisation: Having gatling guns for arms sure is difficult, especially when dealing blows with Gargorgon, so Rudian is only a ranged fighter compared to her.
  • Humongous Mecha: Its sort of a dog-headed guardian robot.
  • More Dakka: Its arms are gattling guns.
  • Sealed Good in a Can: The Gold aliens keep Rudian in the form of a Spark Doll when it isn't needed.

Gargorgon

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

First Appearance: The Man with the Memories of a Planet
Voiced by: Jenya
A horrible alien monster that feeds on the energies of planets, turning all its inhabitants to stone. She attacked the planet Gold five years ago, forcing tE-rU to flee to Earth and find Rudian, but little did he realize the monster had followed him, and Gargorgon soon proved to be Ultraman X's most challenging foe yet.
  • Attack Its Weakpoint: Her petrifying eye is also where she stores her stolen energy. Destroying it instantly cures all her petrified victims. However, unlike most, she can heal from having it destroyed.

  • Eyes Do Not Belong There: Her petrifying eye is in her mouth.
  • Healing Factor: Slowly regenerates body parts over time.

  • It Can Think: At first she appears to just be a mindless beast, but then it reveals it is indeed fully sapient.
  • Killed Off for Real: Unlike the majority of monsters, she's not turned into a Spark Doll. Instead she's turned to stone and shattered.
  • Literally Shattered Lives: Is turned to stone when X uses the Bemstar Armor to reflect her Taken for Granite attack back at her, after which Rudian shatters her with its gattling guns.
  • Long Neck: her smaller heads can stretch out to great distances to strike at enemies by surprise.

See Ultraman Max

  • Avenging the Villain: Quila sought to destroy Ultraman Max in revenge for the death of the original Alien Sran.

  • Combat Tentacles: Mainly uses its multiple blue tentacles to battle Ultraman X.
  • Gentle Giant: Houlinga is a peaceful monster that mainly just sits in one spot and lets things happen around it as it waits to become a mountain. However, Xio gives the monster medicine, making it extremely active, and it grows even more furious when they attempt to move it to a new location.

Gina Spectre

https://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/gina_spectre_1.jpg

First Appearance: End of the Rainbow
Played by: Minami Tsukui
The sister of the recently deceased Galactic Conqueror Juda, having been resurrected by Yapool in the events of Ultra Fight Victory. She escaped from Ultraman Ginga's universe to wreak havoc in the world of Ultraman X.
  • Adaptational Attractiveness: In Andro Melos, Gina looked a lot more like a female version of her brothers (like this, to be exact), so she couldn't exactly be called "sexy". Here, she's the most human-like of the three, though it's completely possible that this is merely a form she has decided to take.
  • Badass Normal: She shows no special combat abilities, relying solely on her martial arts and agility (as well as a little help from lackeys) to fight her enemies
  • Back from the Dead: She was originally one of the Big Bads of the obscure 1984 spin-off Andro Melos, but was revived by Yapool alongside her siblings during Ultra Fighty Victory. Unlike her brothers though, she never appears in her true form.
  • The Baroness: Natch. She's got the whip, the looks, the asskicking power, and the mercilessness of one.
  • Dark Action Girl: Although she never fights any of the Ultramen due to remaining human-sized for the whole story arc, she fights Asuna and later Arisa and puts up a strong battle against the two Action Girls
  • Fusion Dance: In the final battle against Ultramen X, Ginga, and Victory, she merges with Mold to become Guar Spectre (Mold with a power boost essentially).
  • Galactic Conqueror: Her goal, alongside Mold, is to restore their old armies and restart their conquest of the universe.
  • Knight of Cerebus: Her appearance also marks the introduction of the mysterious Dark Thunder Energy and Ultraman X gaining Exceed Mode, which begins the slow buildup to the events of the finale.
  • Whip It Good: Her weapon of choice is a whip. She also likes to use it to beat her minions when they fail her, as Aliens Shaplay and Magma found out after their first battle.

Tsurugi Demaaga

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

First Appearance: End of the Rainbow
A more powerful version of Demaaga transformed by Gina, using the mysterious power known as Dark Thunder Energy. Its enhanced powers proved to be nearly fatal for Ultraman X, and as a result, Daichi has to find a way to rescue his partner and gains a new power in the process — the Xlugger. An army of them are later resurrected by Zaigorg in The Movie to destroy Chicago, Cairo, Buenos Aires, Shanghai, and Geneva.
  • Blade Below the Shoulder: Though it possesses additional ones on its shoulders.
  • Breath Weapon: Like the original Demaaga, it breathes fire.
  • Elite Mook: It's a more powerful version of Demaaga, thanks to the power of Dark Thunder Energy.
  • The Juggernaut: Immune to the Xanadium Ray, which is one of the boons of Dark Thunder Energy.
  • Knight of Cerebus: This monster was no joke when it came to battling Ultraman X, as its Dark Thunder Energy empowerment makes it deadly to Ultraman X, which eventually leads to Daichi and X unlocking the Xlugger.
  • Mook Carryover: Despite originally being a minion of Gina, more Tsurugi Demaagas are seen under Zaigorg's control in The Movie.

See Ultraseven

Alien Magma

First Appearance: End of the Rainbow
Voiced by: Isamu Yusen
An alien mercenary hired by Gina and one of the first members of the new Guar Army. The cat-like alien mainly assisted Mold in battling the Ultra heroes by turning giant-sized.
See Ultraman Leo

  • Dual Wielding: Variant. Due to his species' signature skill being their Shapeshifter Weapons, he instead turns both of his arms into sabers, rather than just his right arm.

Mold Spectre

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

First Appearance: The Sword of Victory
Voiced by: Hidenari Ugaki
Gina and Juda's brother, who was also resurrected by Yapool. He escaped with his sister into the world of Ultraman X, accidentally bringing Hikaru Raido (Ultraman Ginga), Shou (Ultraman Victory), and Arisa Sugita in the process.
  • Avenging the Villain: He's mad at Victory for killing Juda, thus part of his reason to kill Ultras is to avenge his youngest sibling.
  • An Axe to Grind: His weapon of choice is a battleaxe. It can also be thrown like a boomerang.
  • Back from the Dead: Like Gina and Juda, he was originally one of the Big Bads of Andro Melos. Yapool resurrected them about thirty years later, and although Juda was killed quickly, he and Gina fled to Ultraman X's universe.
  • The Brute: In comparison to his siblings, Mold prefers to rely on brute force in combat, whereas Gina uses her agility and wits while Juda takes the best of both.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: A tyrant he may be, Mold is caring for his siblings and part of his reason to kill the Ultramen is to avenge Juda.
  • Fusion Dance: Gina merges with him to give him a power boost, turning them into Guar Spectre for the final battle against the Ultramen.
  • Galactic Conqueror: Before he was killed, he was one. After being resurrected, he and Gina intend to go back to it, starting with Earth and getting rid of those pesky Ultra heroes first.

Mecha-Gomora

First Appearance: The Shining Sky and the Land Beneath It
A Spark Doll given to Gina and her minions by Alien Markind (who was then "paid" with a shot to the chest). It was used by Gina and Mold to distract Xio while they launched a major assault on the team's headquarters, leading to a battle against its fellow robot Gomora, Cyber Gomora.
See Ultraman Zero

Gomess

First Appearance: A Soldier's Back
A buried Spark Doll resurrected by Dark Thunder Energy and later empowered by another strike, making it far deadlier than it normally was.
See Ultra Q

  • Breath Weapon Due to the Dark Thunder Energy, Gomess can breathe a beam of atomic energy.
  • Shout-Out: Since the original Gomess was created with a Godzilla suit, the crew took a few opportunities to add Godzilla references. Including the atomic breath mentioned above, Gomess' roars are enhanced with some of Jirass' roars. Incidentally, the episode Gomess appears in here first aired on November 3, the date the original Godzilla (1954) debuted.

Cicada Woman

First Appearance: Feature Report! 24 Hours Inside Xio!
Portrayed by: Una
An alien working alongside Kemur and Dada in an underground human abduction network. She was spotted by Xio when they tracked down the location of the smuggling ring and was arrested soon afterwards.
See Ultra Q

Gubila

First Appearance: Feature Report! 24 Hours Inside Xio!
Another monster awoken and empowered by strikes of Dark Thunder Energy. It suddenly appeared in the middle of Tokyo during an interview with Mamoru and Rui.
See Ultraman

Pigmon

First Appearance: My Friend's a Monster
One of a species of small monster that had started appearing across the world after the Ultra Flare incident. Pigmon lived at the outskirts of Tatara City where it befriended a girl named Sakura who had just moved there. However, the presence of Dark Thunder Energy in the region deeply unnerved the creature, and it sought to warn Sakura and the other humans that something bad was going to happen.
See Ultraman

  • Friend to All Children: While Pigmon is always a friendly monster towards humans, in this series, Pigmon shows a particular affinity for children and likes to play with them.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: As per Pigmon appearances. This time, he saves a man from being crushed by King Gesura, only to be seemingly killed. Fortunately, this time he survives.

King Gesura

First Appearance: My Friend's a Monster
Another Spark Doll turned berserk by strikes of Dark Thunder Energy. It appeared at a mall near Tatara City, with its rampage being what Pigmon feared would arrive.
See Ultraman

  • Spike Shooter: Gesura's usual venomous spines are upgraded to these, thanks to the Dark Thunder Energy.

Space Cat Mu

First Appearance: Wataru's Romance
Voiced by: Jenya
A strange monster mysteriously attracted to Ultraman X for reasons that Ultraman X does not remember. The bigger problem was its presence made electronics go haywire and attracted numerous strikes of Dark Thunder Energy, one of which resurrected Red King.
See Ultraman Max

  • Art Evolution: Unlike the original Space Cats, Mu possesses two large cat-like ears and two extra tentacles that act as arms. These were added to make her more expressive and maneuverable.
  • Laser-Guided Amnesia: Whereas the original Space Cats caused general amnesia with their presence, Mu instead releases an amnesiac gas from her rear that causes people to forget who she is. Her tears instantly cure it, but they cause her to lose her own memories!

Red King/EX Red King

First Appearance: Wataru's Romance
Another monster awoken by Dark Thunder Energy, this time bursting out in the middle of the city. It is transformed into EX Red King by another strike of energy, causing havoc for both Mu and Ultraman X as it rampages.
See Ultraman

M1

First Appearance: Living Together
Voiced by: Shozo Iizuka
An artificial lifeform created many years ago by a failed science experiment. M1 was jettisoned into orbit where he became bitter and disgusted of humanity, believing humans could not coexist with other beings. He bore witness to the successful resurrection of Gomora and its transformation into EX Gomora by Dark Thunder Energy. When Ultraman X was about to destroy Gomora, M1 teleported the hero into space to speak to him and debate with Daichi on the idea of "peace to all beings".
See Ultra Q

  • Freudian Excuse: His disbelief in humanity's ability to live peacefully with others originates from how he was jettisoned into space for being a failed experiment.
  • Humans Are Bastards: He believes that humans are inherently incapable of coexisting with other creatures and challenges Daichi on his ideals about it.
  • Mythology Gag: The third and final recap episode of Ultraman X states this is the original M1 from Ultra Q (who was launched into space at the end of his appearance).
  • Psychic Powers: Possesses these in this series, allowing him to subdue Ultraman X and speak to him and Daichi.
  • Shout-Out: His trapping of Ultraman X in a glass vial is a reference to Ultraseven, when Seven ends up in the same situation after being shrunk by the undead Shadowmen.

Bemular

First Appearance: Bonds -Unite-
A monster that suddenly appeared in Canada where it attacked the lakeside town where Lieutenant Tachibana's husband and two daughters lived, almost killing the two girls. At the height of Tachibana's despair of helplessness to save her family, the Evolthruster appeared in front of her, turning her into Ultraman Nexus! Nexus immediately flew all the way to Canada, where he quickly destroyed Bemular offscreen.
See Ultraman

  • Adult Fear: Bemular's attack on Tachibana's daughters Michiru and Kaoru was definitely intended to invoke this.
  • Early-Bird Cameo: Bemular was shown as early as episode 1, 15 years ago when the Ultra Flare happened. Whether the one who fought Nexus is the one from the past is unknown.
  • Mythology Gag: Bemular's battle with Nexus at a lake homages Bemular's appearance in the original Ultraman where a lake was the stage of combat, as well as Nexus' battle against The One (who is based on Bemular) in Ultraman: The Next

Bugbuzun Brood

First Appearance: Bonds -Unite-
Human-sized Space Beasts, a pack of Bugbuzun Broods were attacking people in an underground parking lot. Xio managed to kill most of them, but the sole survivor escaped and was later struck by Dark Thunder Energy, turning it into a towering monster.
See Ultraman Nexus

  • Art Evolution: Compared to the original Bugbuzun Broods (who had human-like builds and were able to wear clothes), these ones are based on the giant form the Unknown Hand turned them into in Ultraman Nexus EX. So instead, their new giant form sports large shoulder spikes borrowed from fellow Space Beast Arakunia.
  • Reality Ensues: Space Beasts by extension are violent monsters, whose sole purpose of existence is to feed on the fear of others. As pacifist as Daichi is, he has no choice but to agree destroying these monsters.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: Bugbuzun Broods are spawned by a Bugbuzun Golar in their Nexus appearance, but Xio makes no attempt to find the Bugbuzun Golar, nor is it ever mentioned by even Ultraman X. Director Yuichi Abe explained that Bugbuzun Golar was dropped as he wanted the Broods to be more threatening.

Greeza

Spoiler 

First Appearance: A Beautiful End
The evil entity that Ultraman X was battling in the series' prologue. He defeated it by tossing it into the sun, causing the Ultra Flare incident that resurrected Spark Dolls across Earth and cost a young Daichi his parents. Unfortunately, events afterward indicate it might not be as defeated as it seems.
  • All Your Powers Combined: After absorbing all of Xio's Spark Dolls, it puts their powers to good use against Ultraman X.
  • The Assimilator: Can absorb Spark Dolls to gain the powers of the monsters.
  • Attack Reflector: Able to absorb attacks, store them in its body, and then fire them back.
  • Barrier Warrior: Could create a powerful force field.
  • Big Bad: Of the series. It's also revealed to be the creator of Dark Thunder Energy.
  • The Blank: Its humanoid form possesses one, which is intended to be a Shout-Out to Zetton. It can also fire a massive laser from there.
  • Chest Blaster: The Greeza Double Helix, its most powerful ability.
  • Evil Counterpart: To X. More obvious in its final form, when it starts using attacks stolen from the Spark Dolls in a manner similar to X's Armors. Additionally, one can argue that its final form is wearing a set of armor like X's Mons Armor.
  • Eldritch Abomination / Humanoid Abomination: A strange purplish humanoid who seems to waver in and out of reality as if he's not really there. Xio's radar shows a mass of literally nothing when it appears.
    Guruman: "If there was a space energy reading of zero, then there's nothing in front of Space Musketty. Literally nothing, I mean. Zero, a void. That light shown is our senses trying to perceive a total lack of information."
  • EMP: Able to create EMP shockwaves from its body.
  • Giggling Villain: His roar is a series of psychotic giggles.
  • Homing Lasers: can fire innumerable numbers of these from all over its body.
  • Hurl It into the Sun: X tried to kill him this way. It only put him out of commission for awhile and caused the Ultra Flare.
  • Metamorphosis Monster: Begins as a large orb-like object, but after arriving on Earth it take son a humanoid form similar to Zetton. After absorbing all of Xio's Spark Dolls, it transforms into an armoured verison covered in spikes and equipped with numerous weapons.
  • Negative Space Wedgie: Word of God describes it as a living space anomaly, making it a sentient version of the trope.
  • Nigh Invulnerable: Its reality-bending nature makes it nearly impossible to damage. It's still insanely hard to damage after X self destructing solves that problem.
  • No-Sell: Everything thrown at it doesn't even make it flinch until X's Hybrid Armor.
  • Not Quite Dead: It survived being thrown into the sun at the start of the series!
  • Oh, Crap!: Despite literally not having a face, manages to get a good one when X fires a Wave Motion Gun at him.
  • Omnicidal Maniac: Seeks to destroy all life in the universe!
  • Person of Mass Destruction: Wiped three planets barren of life and intends to do the same to the entire universe.
  • Power of the Void: The best way to describe it is a sapient all-consuming void that destroys everything around it. Its Boss Subtitles are even "Void Monster".
  • Reality Warper: As it technically doesn't exist (hence why Xio's detectors showed a blank spot where it should be), its connection with reality is unstable, causing all sorts of minor weirdness around it.
  • Space Master: Due to its loose connection to reality, its movements are highly erratic. This can result in it suddenly teleporting, hyper-speed traveling, suddenly stopping its enemy mid-punch, and a reflective force field randomly appearing in front of it.
  • Whip It Good: Able to conjure five orbs that create energy whips to lash enemies.

Zaigorg

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

First Appearance: Ultraman X the Movie: Here Comes Our Ultraman!
A monster sealed long ago by Ultraman Tiga in a Barraj temple. Unfortunately, it was accidentally freed in the present by a greedy treasure hunter named Carlos Kurosaki. The creature soon began to rampage across Japan, summoning an army of Tsurugi Demaaga to take on the rest of the world, while its own Gorg Monsters assisted it in battling Ultraman X, Ultraman Tiga, and Ultraman.
  • An Arm and a Leg: After getting his Beta Spark Armor, X slices his mace hand clean off with his sword.
  • Ancient Evil: Was imprisoned in ancient times until it escaped in the present day.

  • Chest Blaster: Can open up its chest mouth and fire a gigantic beam of red energy.
  • Evil Counterpart: Another one to X. While also being a Final-Exam Boss and capable of summoning up past monsters to fight alongside it, notice the way the opening on its chest unfolds into a four-petaled flower.
  • Evil Laugh: It's roar sounds like one. Unlike Greeza's, which sounded like psychotic giggling, his sounds deep and threatening.
  • Hell on Earth: Zaigorg's end goal is to create a world were the earth smolders and the oceans boil. He did it in ancient times until the Ultramen defeated him.
  • It Can Think: Given it was smart enough to track down the thing that kept it sealed in the first place in an attempt to prevent if from being sealed again, it's implied it's no mindless beast.
  • Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: Ultraman X's Beta Spark Arrow goes straight through his chest and comes out the other side.
  • The Juggernaut: Was able to survive not only multiple Specium Rays, Zepellion Rays, and the like, but survived the Xlugger!
  • Meaningful Name: Zaigorg's name is a mutation of "Jigoku", the Japanese word for "hell", also romanized as "Zigoku". It can also be read as "Sin Suffering."
  • Mook Maker: Is capable of creating cloned 'Gorg' Monsters.
  • More Teeth than the Osmond Family: Not only does it's mouth have plenty of teeth already, a close look shows he has a second set inside his mouth.
  • Names to Run Away from Really Fast: Zaigorg's name is a mutation of the word "Jigoku", the Japanese word for "Hell." It can also mean "Sin Suffering." His subtitle can mean Devil Beast or refer to the Ruler of Hell in Japanese mythology.
  • Our Demons Are Different: Word of God is that the creature originated from Hell itself, and its deign is intended to invoke Japanese concepts of Hell.
    • Its horns are those of an oni, while its Right Hand of Doom is meant to invoke the kanabo, a spiked club frequently used by oni.
    • The spikes on its back recall the mountains of knives the damned are forced to climb and be impaled on, while its mouth is reminiscent of Blood Pond Hell (one of the Hells of Beppu).
    • Its tail is based on the saws that demons use to torture the damned, while its multiple eyes reference Avici Hell, in which the worst of the damned are tortured by a multi-eyed demon.
  • Right Hand of Doom: Possesses a spiked mace in place of its right hand.
  • Sadist: Zaigorg is laughs his head off at every act of cruelty and evil he commits.
  • Satanic Archetype: His subtitle is Devil Beast, and in Japanese specifically refers to Enma, the mythological ruler of Hell. He's also a walking collection of demon and Hell references. He explicitly came from Hell and desires to bring about Hell on Earth.
  • Sealed Evil in a Can: Was imprisoned in an ancient Barraj temple centuries ago until a treasure hunter took the thing keeping him sealed away thinking it was a priceless artifact and accidentally set him free.
  • Spike Shooter: Able to fire the spines from its back like bolts. It can also sprout and fire two blades from its shoulder as missiles. They can also grow into Gorg Monsters as needed.
  • Tail Slap: Even deadlier, thanks to its spiked tail.
