Mega Monster Battle: Ultra Galaxy Legends is 2009 film produced by Tsuburaya Productions and directed by Koichi Sakamoto for Tsuburaya's Ultra Series. It was the first appearance for Ultraman Zero and Ultraman Belial, and was followed by a sequel movie Ultraman Zero: The Revenge of Belial.

Ultraman Belial, a fallen Ultra now fused with Rayblood DNA, has come to the Land of Light seeking revenge. After kicking an entire planet's worth of Ultra asses, he goes on to steal the Plasma Spark, the source of all Ultra's energy. With the planet now frozen, and Ultraman and Ultraseven stuck in human form, is there no-one to stop Belial's ultimate plan of taking over the universe with his Hundred Monster Army?!

...well, yes, there are: Rei, the monster controlling Rayblood/Human hybrid, and Ultraman Zero, an extraordinarily powerful rookie Ultra, said to hold unlimited potential. Ultraman Mebius, who escaped the freeze as he was thrown into orbit, is sent to fetch Rei.

Mega Monster Battle: Ultra Galaxy Legends provides examples of the following tropes:

  • And I Must Scream:
    • Ultraman King punishes Belial by imprisoning him inside the Land of Light's moon for all eternity. However, he is freed by Alien Zarab.... 457,542 years later.
    • After Belial steals the plasma spark and flies away with it, a massive ice storm descends upon the Land of Light and leaves all the Ultras (minus Mebius, Leo, Astra, King and Zero, who were off-world at that time and Ultraman and Seven, who shielded themselves at the very last moment) helplessly frozen solid in a state of semi-consciousness. Thankfully, they're all thawed out after Zero returns the plasma spark to its rightful place.
  • Authority Equals Asskicking: He didn't win, but after Belial tears his way through most of the Land of Light, the Father of Ultra confronts him and gives him a decent thrashing. Belial only wins by attacking the scar the Father has from fighting Alien Emepror.

  • Badass Normal: The ZAP SPACY crew, especially Boss.
  • Barrier Maiden: Taro uses up his own energy to keep M78 alive.
  • Big Bad: Belial
  • Body Horror: Beryudora is made up of an entire army of still living kaiju. Not composed of parts of them, the whole kaiju forming its skin and body!
  • Body of Bodies: Beryudora.
  • Canon Immigrant:
    • The King Monsters (Guesra, Pandon, Goldras and Silvergon) and Super Alien Hipporito previously appeared in Superior Ultraman 8 Brothers, which was set in an alternate universe.
    • Ultraman Max and his superior, Ultraman Xenon, are part of the multiple Ultras that try and fail to stop Belial's rampage. Both of them originated from a series set in a different universe.
  • The Cavalry: The ZAP SPACY crew and Ultraman Dyna show up to help the heroes against the Monster Army and snap Rei out of his rage, but sadly none of them are able to overpower Belial and it takes Zero's arrival (Alongside Astra and Leo) to finally defeat Belial.
  • Cold Snap
  • Crossover
    • Ultraman Dyna has a guest role in the climax, assisting the heroes against the 100 Monster Army and guiding ZAP Spacy Crew in finding the Monster Graveyard.
    • Ultraman Cosmos, sort of, an alternate version of Musashi, working as a member of ZAP Spacy, makes a quick cameo at the beginning of the film.
  • Crisis Crossover: For the Ultra Series. Noticeably, almost every single past Ultra makes an appearance, even the foreign Powered, Great and the Ultras from Ultraman: The Adventure Begins all make cameos.
  • Cold Open: Possible candidate — the fight between Mebius and Bemular takes place before the intro sequence. Yes, this movie has an intro sequence.
  • Cool Old Guy:
    • Both Hayata and Ultraseven kick ass even when trapped in human form.
    • The Father of Ultra. One of the oldest Ultras in the franchise, but if it weren't for the scar he had from fighting the Emperor being hit by Belial, he would've ended the movie pretty early.
  • Curbstomp Battle: Belial destroys the entire defense line for the Land of Light. The first time he only failed because Ultraman King delivered an bigger curbstomp to him in return.
    • Up until Belial hits his scar, the Father of Ultra pretty much dishes one out to Belial.
    • Zero delivers one to the remnants of Belial's army and then follows by dishing one out to Belial.
    • AND then, Beryudora delivers one to all the heroes, even Zero.
  • Eldritch Abomination: Beryudora, the fusion between Belial and his kaiju army, is a gargantuan-sized demonic monstrosity with unholy powers made of multiple kaiju and aliens the Ultras have fought before.
  • Face–Heel Turn: Gomora and Reimon, temporarily.
  • Fallen Hero: Belial was once an Ultraman, but became corrupted by his lust for power.
  • Henshin Hero
  • Human Shield: During the skirmish on Planet M78, Belial briefly uses Ultrawoman Beth as a meatshield to protect himself from Ultraman Powered's beam attack.
  • I Am X, Son of Y
    Belial: Who are you?
    Ultraman Zero: ZERO! ULTRAMAN ZERO! SON OF SEVEN!
  • I Am Your Opponent: Used word for word when Asuka pulls a Big Damn Heroes for the crew of the Space Pendragon, saving them from Alien Zetton.
  • I Can Rule Alone: Alien Zarab awakens Ultraman Belial and gives him the Giga-Battlenizer in hopes that they can rule the universe together. But Belial isn't having any of it.
    Alien Zarab: I've done it! The universe is ours!
    (Belial kills Alien Zarab)
    Belial: Mine.
  • "I Know You're in There Somewhere" Fight: Between Reimon and the ZAP SPACY crew who attempt to snap him out of his rage, and succeed.
  • Jacob Marley Warning: It turns out that Zero's quest for power, trying to take the Plasma Spark for his own, was no different from Belial's attempt a long time ago, which is why Seven stopped him.
  • Kaiju: More than 100 all appear here.
  • Lamarck Was Right: Zero inherits Seven's Eye Slugger weapon, except Zero has two.
  • Large Ham: You know which Zap Spacy crewmember we're talking about.
  • Leader Forms the Head: Beryudora has Belial as the brain.
  • Master-Apprentice Chain: Who else would be picked to train Ultra Seven's son Zero than Seven's own protege, Ultraman Leo.
  • Mirrored Confrontation Shot: See the movie poster.
  • One-Man Army: Belial defeats the entire defense force of the Land of Light. Zero himself returns the favor by eliminating the remnants of Belial's army before kicking Belial's ass.
  • One-Winged Angel: Belial merges with his monster army (And pretty much every single past Ultraman monster) to transform into Beryudora, a 4,000 meter tall monster.
  • The Reveal: Zero's appearance is always obscured until he finally appears in the Monster Graveyard.
  • Sealed Evil in a Can: Belial was defeated by Ultraman King and sealed inside the Land of Light's moon a long time. Until Zarab frees him
  • Sequel Hook: Belial is shown to be alive at the end of the film, setting up his role as a recurring antagonist.
  • Stock Footage: Footage from Ultra Galaxy Mega Monster Battle is shown in the intro sequence.
  • Training from Hell: What Ultraman Leo gives to Zero.
  • The Worf Effect: Every past Ultra (Even the likes of Taro, Zoffy and Mebius) gets demolished by Belial, even with numbers advantage. Rei's Gomora and Litra don't fair well against Belial either.
    • Zero then applies this to Belial, disarming and defeating him quickly.
  • Worf Had the Flu: The Father of Ultra would very likely have defeated Belial had it not been for his scar from fighting Alien Emperor, and was thrashing him before he hit it.
