Trivia / Ultraman Leo

Go To

General Trivia

  • Alien Magma's reappearance in Episode 30 was a suggestion from the show's child actors.

Trope Trivia

  • Acting for Two: Tatsumi Nikamoto, Leo's suit actor, also played Ultraseven, more prominently in Episode 1, where he rescues himself.
  • Actor Allusion: Takeshi sure likes to throw boomerangs.
  • The Cast Showoff: Ryu Manatsu (Gen) sings the first theme song, does the awesome martial arts/gymnastics demonstration in the very first scene, as well as sings a song in which Gen yearns for his home planet.
    • According to the Ultra Wiki, Ryu Manatsu did nearly all his own stunts, except in Episode 3 (some of the fights vs human-sized Tsuruk) and Episode 8 (possibly somebody else did the Parkour?).

  • Creator Backlash: Kohji Moritsugu has said that he disliked the way Dan treated Gen, although he's added that he understands Dan's intention to strengthen Gen.
  • Fan Nickname: Nova is sometimes called "Blanket Man", both affectionately and derogatorily, due to the simplicity of its design making it look like the suit actor was simply draped in a red blanket.
  • Hey, It's That Sound!:
    • From the original Ultraman: Black Garon uses Gomora's roar, Ashuran uses Red King's, and Alien Flip's is recycled from Baltan.
    • In Black End's introductory appearance, the monster makes Anguirus sounds, but when he battles Leo, his roar is changed to that of the Toho King Kong.
  • Prop Recycling
    • Alien Babalou was created from the Alien Magma suit.
    • Rolan's costume is a feathered mix of the Alien Wolf and Northsatan suits.
  • Recycled Soundtrack: A few selections from Return of Ultraman and Ultraseven are used alongside plenty of original music.

  • What Could Have Been: When Tsuburaya Productions cast Kohji Moritsugu as captain of MAC, his character was meant to be a new character named Tetsutaro Kawakami. However, Kohji Moritsugu was concerned viewers would confuse Kawakami with Dan, so the character was changed, which probably explains the complete change of character.
  • You Look Familiar: Kaoru Sugita played a supporting role in Episode 31 before she reappeared in Episode 40, playing Azumi Miyama, Nurse Miyama's youngest daughter.
