Ultraman Zero: The Revenge of Belial (known as Ultraman Zero The Movie: Super Deciding Fight! The Belial Galactic Empire) is a 2010 film made by Tsuburaya Productions and directed by Yuichi Abe for the Ultra Series. It serves as a sequel to the Mega Monster Battle: Ultra Galaxy Legends movie and focuses on Ultraman Zero as its main hero. It was followed by a sequel movie Ultraman Saga, which was released 2 years later in 2012. The movie itself is notable for several expies of other Tsuburaya characters joining Zero, such as GlenFire, Mirror Knight and Jean Botnote .

Somewhere in another universe, Ultraman Belial has set himself up as Galactic Emperor Kaiser Belial, despotic ruler of the galaxy. He has set his sights on the planet Esmeralda, wanting its emeralds for their great power. The planet itself is decimated, with its champion Mirror Knight infected by Belial's evil. All seems lost for this universe.


Meanwhile, in the M78 universe, Darklopses are invading. They are all easily dispatched thanks to Ultaman Zero and his father Ultraseven. Upon inspecting a Darklops core, The Ultras see that the energy is coming from another universe. Zero is sent, with the "Zero Bracelet" as a backup power, to investigate who is attacking Galaxy M78 and why. Taking the form of Run, a young man from the planet Anu, he goes with Run's brother Nao, Princess of Esmeralda Emerana and her ship Jean Bird, they travel the galaxy making allies with the Pirates of Flame and Glen Fire, cleanse mirror Knight and the hunt for the fabled "Shield of Baradhi" to stop Belial's evil once and for all...


Ultraman Zero: The Revenge of Belial provides examples of the following tropes:

  • Bond Villain Stupidity: Belial has Zero stuck in human form, captured and defenseless. So naturally, he takes this time to show him the entire revenge plan.
  • The Cavalry: GlenFire shows up with three entire space fleets at the Darkest Hour to help turn the tide of the Final Battle.
  • Cool Starship: All over the place.
  • Critical Annoyance: Ultraman Zero, after adopting a human host, had to contend with the three-minute rule all Ultras had to face.
  • Evil Overlord: Belial
  • Evil Plan: 1: Make Darklopses. 2: Power them with emeralds. 3: Send armies of them to destroy the Land of Light.
  • Kaiju
  • McGuffin: The Shield of Baradhi.
  • Mooks: Legionoids and Darklopses.
  • The Multiverse: Zero (and the audience) get a small peek of it as Zero investigates the strange energy.
  • My Hero, Zero: Ultraman Zero
  • Not Quite Dead: Ultraman Belial. And GlenFire later on.
  • One-Winged Angel: Kaiser Belial absorbs all the emeralds and transforms into the gigantic Arch Belial for the final battle.
  • Playing with Fire: GlenFire, of course. From launching fireballs to creating an inferno and erupting himself into an inferno...
  • Revenge: Belial's main motivation. Given that the movie's subtitle is THE REVENGE OF BELIAL, that's to be expected.
  • Revenge of the Sequel: See the title?
  • Rule of Cool: Glen Fire and the Pirates of Flame having fire IN SPACE!
  • Scenery Porn: Land of Light, Esmeralda, various space shots, starship interiors, etc.
  • Shout-Out: The music cues for GlenFire, Mirror Knight and Jean Bot sound similar to their inspirations (Fireman, Mirrorman and Jumborg Ace respectively).
  • Slasher Smile: Ultraman Belial constantly has this.
  • Unexplained Recovery: Both GlenFire and Ultraman Zero do this.
  • The Virus: What's inside Mirror Knight after he was attacked by Ultraman Belial.
  • Villain Ball: At the climax of the film, Belial has imprisoned Run/Zero in a forcefield. Instead of destroying him, Belial decides to partake in Evil Gloating. Worse, throughout the whole scene Belial has the Transformation Trinket in his hands; did he destroy it so Zero won't be able to transform and thus ensure Belial's victory? Nope, he just holds it up for everyone to see.


How well does it match the trope?
