Trivia / Superior Ultraman 8 Brothers

Go To

  • Casting Gag: Hayata works as the owner of a bike shop in the movie, but this isn't the first time Susumu Kurobe has appeared in the Ultra Series as a bike shop owner. Similarly, Dan Moroboshi being a restaurant owner reflects Koji Moritsugu's real-life present-day job as a restauranteur.
  • "No Talking or Phones" Warning: A hilarious one featuring Hipporito and the eight eponymous Ultra Brothers is featured in the teaser trailer. Seen here.
  • Real-Life Relative:
    • Rena is portrayed as Hayata's daughter here, reflecting the fact that Takami Yoshimoto is the daughter of Susumu Kurobe.
    • Similarly, Goh and Aki's daughter, as well Hokuto and Minami's, are in fact the real-life daughters of Rumi Sakakibara and Mitsuko Hoshi respectively.
    • Fujimiya's family seen at the end of the movie are the actual wife and child of Hassei Takano.
  • Role Reprise: Tons. Susumu Kurobe, Koji Moritsugu, Jiro Dan, Keiji Takamine, Hiroshi Nagano, Takeshi Tsuruno, Takeshi Yoshioka, Hassei Takano, and Shunji Igarashi all reprise their respective Ultras' human identities. We also have Hiroko Sakurai as Fuji, Yuriko Hishimi as Anne, Rumi Sakakibara as Aki, Mitsuko Hoshi as Minami, Takami Yoshimoto as Rena, Risa Saito as Ryo, and Ai Hashimoto as Atsuko.
    • This film was Hiroshi Nagano's last outing as Daigo. To some extent, this can be seen as a grand send-off to the character.
  • What Could Have Been
    • Originally, the monsters intended for the film were Vakishim, Twin Tail, Astromons, Tyrant, Monsarger, Eleking, Red King, and Gomora. The result would have been a much more complex Giga Chimera (which would have been called Grand Tyrant instead), but the monsters were changed and reduced in number in order to simplify things.
      • After being changed from Grand Tyrant to the final design, Giga Chimera was going to be called Ultisaur, but Tsuburaya chose to rename it after receiving suggestions to do so from the public.
    • Advertisement:
    • Yapool was originally envisioned as the film's Big Bad. However, since Yapool was already featured in the previous Ultraman movie, Ultraman Mebius And The Ultra Brothers, another villain was selected.
    • One of the returning kaijus to be resurrected by Alien Hipporito would've been Black King, but was ultimately replaced by Pandon, probably because the naming conventions given to the monsters being christened as "King" would've made Black King "King Black King"
