The Ultraman Universe boasts a rich and layered story world with a language all its own. Here are some key concepts to help you navigate through this vast cosmology.
THE M78 ULTRAS
A race of giant humanoids from Nebula M78 born from the effect of the light of an artificial star called the Plasma Spark. Though each individual varies in identity, personality, and fighting style, they all fight to protect justice throughout the galaxy, particularly on Earth.
INTER GALACTIC DEFENSE FORCE
The universal peacekeeping organization to which all Ultra Heroes of the Land of Light belong.
A group of elite Ultras who are bonded by their friendship and trust towards each other. Only the ones who are extraordinary powerful and have accomplished great achievements can receive the honor of being called an Ultra Brother.
LAND OF LIGHT
Also called the Land of Ultra, it is the homeworld of the Inter Galactic Defense Force and is located in the M78 Nebula.
Giant beasts in different forms that exist across the universe. Aliens have brought some to Earth, while others are native to the planet.
Malicious artificially created beasts under the hands of the extradimensional being Yapool, these beings are often hybrids of two or more Earth and space creatures, or combinations of flesh and machine.
Various teams of talented humans who oppose the monsters and alien threats to Earth via highly advanced weaponry and technology. The human host (or incarnation) of an Ultra hero either comes from this team, or joins it after merging with the Ultra.
The light-emitting device on the chest of almost every Ultra, showing their remaining power level. If the Color Timer light goes out, Ultraman may never rise again…
Every Ultra hero has a unique beam attack: an intense, powerful emission of energy particles from their hands, arms or helm that is capable of stopping monsters.
Each Ultra hero can only transform from their human host to their true form with the use of a special device, unique to each hero.
The language of the Ultra hero is different from human script, and each individual has a specialized symbol that they can shine in the sky to communicate to others.
