Chronology of Ultraman Zero Appearances

Ultraman Zero: Revenge Of Belial
To stop the invasion plan of the revived Belial, who created an empire in another universe as Kaiser Belial, Ultraman Zero gathered a group of new allies, including Glenfire, Mirror Knight, and Jean-Bot. Entrusted with the Ultimate Aegis from Ultraman Noa, he foiled and defeated Belial once again. Afterwards, he founded the “Ultimate Force Zero” supergroup with his new comrades.
Ultraman Zero Side Story: Killer the Beatstar
To stop Beatstar’s plan of destroying all organic life in the universe, the Ultimate Force Zero reunited to fight against the mad AI’s Mecha Robot Army. By the end of the battle, they recruited a new member, Jean-Nine, to the team.
To save the alternate “Future Earth” of a universe without Ultras, Ultraman Zero, Ultraman Dyna, and Ultraman Cosmos (each hailing from a different universe) came together to form a single being, Ultraman Saga, and defeated the powerful menace Hyper Zetton

Ultra Zero Fight Part 2
The Ultimate Force Zero reunited once again to stop the “Darkness Five,” an army serving under the returned Ultraman Belial. In the middle of the fight, Zero himself was possessed by Belial and became “Zero Darkness.” Just before his consciousness was fully subsumed by Belial, the voices and love of his comrades allowed him to expel Belial’s spirit, reviving Zero as Shining Ultraman Zero! With this new power, Zero defeated the Darkness Five.

Chasing the evil Etelgar, Ultraman Zero came to the Earth protected by Ultraman Ginga. He trained Hikaru Raido (a.k.a. Ultraman Ginga) and Sho (a.k.a. Ultraman Victory) so that they could become Ultraman Ginga Victory, using the power of the Ultra Fusion Brace entrusted to them by Ultraman King.

To retrieve the Ultra Capsules stolen from the Land of Light, Zero went to the Earth located in the universe known as “Side Space,” where he met with Ultraman Geed. As Ultraman Zero Beyond, he defeated Ultraman Belial together with Geed, hopefully once and for all.
