Ultraman Geed The Movie: Connect The Wishes! is a 2018 tokatsu film produced by Tsuburaya, the Big Damn Movie for Ultraman Geed set after the series have ended.

Gilbaris, the Giant Artificial Brain which is a destroyer of planets, assumed to be destroyed by the Ultra Brothers, has reawakened itself, and is resuming its mission to eliminate all life in the universe. Now targeting Planet Earth, the powerful mechanical villain is sending its army of monsters, the Galactron, to Okinawa, where a mysterious shrine holds an ancient weapon which is Gilbaris' only weakness.

Riku and the AIB, after the events of Ultraman Geed, ends up meeting Jugglus Juggler, formerly the villain of Ultraman Orb, who informed them of the impending threat. They immediately set off to Okinawa, where an encounter with Airu Higa, the lone survivor of Planet Kushan, wiped out by Gilbaris several millennia ago, will help Riku and Ultraman Geed defeat his most terrifying opponent yet.

Ultraman Geed The Movie: Connect The Wishes! provides examples of the following tropes:

  • A.I. Is a Crapshoot: Gilbaris was an ancient computer system meant for peacekeeping reasons, but it gradually develops a mind of its own, until it decides the best way to maintain peace is to become an Omnicidal Maniac who wants to exterminate all life in the universe.
  • Bad-Guy Bar: There’s a nightclub district in the seedy streets of Okinawa where aliens of all varieties are allowed to hang out in public without any worries of being seen by humans. It’s the same place where Riku accidentally causes a Bar Brawl before suddenly meeting Gai Kurenai.
  • Been There, Shaped History: As it turns out, Airu Higa arriving on Okinawa in ancient times inspired the clothing style of the ethnic Okinawan Ryukyuan people.
  • Big Damn Heroes:
    • Gai Kurenai arriving in the middle of the bar fight and beating the snot out of various alien thugs harassing Riku and the AIB.
    • Advertisement:
    • Ultraman Orb and Ultraman Zero revealing themselves to be Not Quite Dead in the climax, arriving just in time to help defend Okinawa from the rampaging Galactron army.
  • The Cameo: Ultraman Taro defeating the original form of Gilbaris in a flashback, only for the core to escape and regenerate itself. Audiences only see Taro finishing off Gilbaris however; the actual battle itself is more of an Offscreen Moment of Awesome.
  • The Cavalry Arrives Late: The Ultimate Force Zero, after multiple attempts, finally, finally, finally breached through the planetary shield Gilbaris forms around Earth that forces them out, where they try locating Ultraman Zero… just in time to see Ultraman Zero, Orb and Geed victorious in the battle against Gilbaris.
  • Conservation of Ninjutsu: The combined efforts of Ultraman Geed, Orb and Zero can barely take down a single Galactron Mark II, and their victory nearly cost Geed his life. Later on, however, the three Ultras can fight various Galactrons at the same time, killing Galactrons on 1-on-1 battles... while Geed can be excused because he's now equipped with the Giga Finalizer which makes him multiple times more powerful than ever, but the trope definitely applies to Orb and Zero.
  • Continuity Nod:
    • Planet Earth facing a countdown before extermination of all life, where legions of the Big Bad’s Galactron army is stationed in all corners to eliminate all resistance, seems reminiscent of Alien Empera’s Imperializer doing the same thing back in Ultraman Mebius.
    • Airu Higa performing a Heroic Sacrifice for Riku, her death being crucial to assist Riku unlock his inner potential and activate the Giga Finalizer, is similar to Tamayura doing the same thing to help Gai Kurenai in Ultraman Orb, allowing Gai to unleash Belial’s power and ultimately activating his Thunder Breaster form.
    • Upon defeat, the millions of civilians digitalized by Gilbaris re-materializes all over the city, in a manner similar to how humans abducted by Alien Bat re-materialize in the ending of Ultraman Saga.
  • Contrived Coincidence: Riku and AIB’s visit to Okinawa coincides with the Gilbaris’ first invasion attempt happening there, which is also the same time where Reito Igaguri happens to stop by for a business trip just as Ultraman Zero and Gai Kurenai decides to drop by.
  • Cores-and-Turrets Boss: The Perfect Form of Gilbaris resembles this. Its an immobile fortress-like structure surrounded by turrets and missiles, armed to the teeth with weapons, and can only be destroyed when its external defenses are stripped down and its inner core is destroyed.
  • Disney Death: Ultraman Orb and Ultraman Zero apparently gets vaporized after doing a Heroic Sacrifice to save Ultraman Geed from Galactron Mark II’s beam attack. But as it turns out, Ultraman Zero actually unlocked his Shinning Zero form, which allows him and Orb to transport themselves to another time later in the future.
  • Evil Counterpart: Inverted, the Giga-Finalizer is the Good Counterpart of Ultraman Belial’s Giga-Battlenizer.
  • Golden Super Mode: Ultraman Geed's Ultimate form - Ultimate Final, complete with extremely bright Power Glows, an epic golden motif, and bright Tron Lines running all around his sides.
  • Half the Man He Used to Be: More than one Galactron suffers this fate, either getting sliced by Ultraman Zero's Twin Sluggers, carved apart by Jugglus Juggler's katana, or bisected vertically by Ultraman Orb Trinity's Trinitium Break. And in their final confrontation, Ultraman Geed, unleashing his most powerful form of all, cleaves Gilbaris' core into two.
  • Henshin Hero: Riku and Gai, in the penultimate showdown we get a shot of both of them transforming at the same time, their henshin sequences being spliced together before Ultraman Geed and Ultraman Orb emerged.
  • Heroic RRoD: Ultraman Geed, witnessing the apparent death of the Ultramen Orb and Zero, completely loses it and flies into a rage as he brutally assaults the updated Galactron Mark II. While he wins, he ends up passing out and losing his powers, and self-confidence, for a good chunk of the movie.
  • Heroic Second Wind: The arrival of Ultraman Zero helps Ultraman Geed and Orb turn the tide of battle against Galactron Mark II... for a short while. Later there is Ultraman Geed finally regaining his confidence and unleashing his most powerful form.
  • Hold the Line: For the time being when Riku is knocked out, and both Ultramen Orb and Zero are out of commission, Jugglus Juggler and Gukuru Shisa tries their best to hold off the first wave of Galactrons. They succeed for a short period, even killing a few Galactrons, but they were overwhelmed until the Ultras are back in action.
  • Kaiju: There’s a friendly, lion-like Panthera Awesome kaiju called Gukuru Shisha which is Airu Higa’s Cool Pet and a Gentle Giant, but there’s also the Galactron army, a legion of Mechanical Monster hell-bent on exterminating all life on earth.
  • Last of Her Kind: Airu Higa is the last member of the Kushan race of aliens, the planet’s entire population having been wiped out by Gilbaris and the Galactron army.
  • Only the Chosen May Wield: The Red Steel can only be activated by the most worthy of wielder, which turns out to be Riku / Ultraman Geed after regaining his confidence, at which point it turns into the powerful Giga Finalizer allowing a victory against Gilbaris to be possible.
  • Really 700 Years Old: Airu Higa looks like she’s in her late-20s/early-30s, but she’s actually 3,300 years old, having arrived on planet earth before culture and civilization actually developed in Okinawa Island.
  • Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: After battling the initial wave of Galactrons and barely surviving the victory, upon learning that the next confrontation is against Gilbaris itself, Jugglus Juggler decides he's had enough fighting in one day and promptly leaves.
  • Spoiler Cover: Gilbaris’ final attempt to destroy the Ultras, where it unleashes its devastating Perfect Form, happens quite late in the final act. But it’s already well-displayed on the poster above. The Giga Finalizer, which doesn't appear until the finale, is clearly shown on the same poster.
  • Thought You Were Dead: Ultraman Zero and Ultraman Orb died trying to save Geed… or so he thought. Turns out they managed to escape by jumping a few hours into the future thanks to Zero’s Shinning Form.
