This is the character list of 2020 Ultra Series Ultraman Z and its preceding YouTube-exclusive miniseries Ultra Galaxy Fight: The Absolute Cospiracy.

STORAGE[edit]

Anti-Monster Robot Unit STORAGE (対怪獣ロボット部隊 ストレイジ, Tai Kaijū Robotto Butai Sutoreiji)[a] is an attack team established to fight monsters and the disasters they create using special anti-monster combat robots.[2][3] Their preference in robots is due to Japan's popular culture with it.[1] The team itself is separated into two divisions: the Special Airborne Armor that actively combat monsters and the mechanic team that repairs SAA machines. Nonetheless both factions are easily cooperative with each other.[4] After the destruction of Kelbim through a test run with D4 Ray, STORAGE was disbanded when the majority of its members protested Kuriyama and the upper command of GAFJ for their unethical use of D4. Whereas a portion of them were relegated to different jobs in separate departments, Yoko and a handful of former members were given positions in its succeeding group, SAAG.

When a STORAGE member piloted a SAA unit, remaining operatives in the field would usually drive into the scene with a Toyota LQ-based STEGG (ステッグ, Suteggu, stands for "Storage Egg") patrol car and armed with a beam rifle.[5][6][7]

STORAGE's artificial intelligence is voiced by Katsumi Fukuhara (福原 かつみ, Fukuhara Katsumi).[8][9]

Haruki Natsukawa[edit]

Haruki Natsukawa (ナツカワ ハルキ, Natsukawa Haruki)[b][10][11] is the 23-year-old protagonist of the series, a rookie pilot of STORAGE and a Karate master with a huge sense of justice. He bonded with Z after a near-death experience and ever since then transforms into the giant to combat daily monster attacks despite the two having conflicting ideals about "lives to be protected" and "beings to be killed".[10][11]

Using the Ultra Z Riser (ウルトラゼットライザー, Urutora Zetto Raizā) and his personalized Ultra Access Card (ウルトラアクセスカード, Urutora Akusesu Kādo), Haruki can transform into Ultraman Z and his different forms. By scanning three different Ultra Medals (ウルトラメダル, Urutora Medaru) stored in his Z Holder (ゼットホルダー, Zetto Horudā), Haruki can grant Z access to different forms based on past Ultra Warriors and perform the Ultra's finishing moves.[12][13] The Z Riser was developed by Ultraman Hikari and received its name when Ultraman Z volunteered to be a tester under Zero's suggestion.

Haruki Natsukawa is portrayed by Kohshu Hirano (平野 宏周, Hirano Kōshū).[10][11][4] As a child, Haruki is portrayed by Sōma Ueno (上野 蒼真, Ueno Sōma).

Shota Hebikura/Jugglus Juggler[edit]

Shota Hebikura (ヘビクラ ショウタ, Hebikura Shōta)[b][2][3] is STORAGE's 34-year-old captain who acts as an older brother-like figure to the rest of his young teammates. Like Haruki, Hebikura is also athletic and usually puts the rookie through intensive drills in the training room.

His true identity is Phantom Demon Jugglus Juggler (無幻魔人 ジャグラスジャグラー, Mugen Majin Jagurasu Jagurā), the rival character from Ultraman Orb.[14] During Peguila's incident, he crafted his own Dark Z Riser (ダークゼットライザー, Dāku Zetto Raizā) from Haruki/Z's Z Riser, allowing him to become Zeppandon once again.[14][15] Although mostly on-duty as Hebikura, Juggler would resort to his Demon form during undercover missions.

  • Combined Lord Monster Zeppandon (合体魔王獣 ゼッパンドン, Gattai Maō-jū Zeppandon, 5):[14][16] A fusion of Zetton, Pandon and Maga-Orochi's tail that debuted in episode 16 of Ultraman Orb.[17] After creating his copy of Z Riser, the Monster Medals of their components also allow him to reform said monster for combat purposes, first used to test Z's Z Lance Arrow.[15]
  • Tri-King and Five King: See below

Takaya Aoyagi (青柳 尊哉, Aoyagi Takaya) reprises his role as Jugglus Juggler. Eager to return to the Ultra Series, Takaya immediately accepted the role after being offered in summer 2019.[2][3][4]

Yoko Nakashima[edit]

Yoko Nakashima (ナカシマ ヨウコ, Nakashima Yōko)[b][3][18] is a 24-year-old female member and ace pilot of STORAGE. She has admiration for older men and Ultraman Z, often referring to him as "Lord Z" but often challenging her admirers to arm-wrestling matches which she has never once lost. Because of her higher score in test piloting, Yoko is usually assigned to pilot the King Joe STORAGE Custom, as she is capable of handling the robot's complex systems.

After STORAGE's disbandment, Yoko was conscripted into SAAG due to her experience in piloting SAA Units, now assigned to pilot the Ultroid Zero.

Yoko Nakashima is portrayed by Rima Matsuda (松田 リマ, Matsuda Rima).[3][18][4]

Kojiro Inaba[edit]

Kojiro Inaba (イナバ コジロー, Inaba Kojirō)[b][19][20] is the 59-year-old leader of STORAGE's mechanics division in maintaining their Special Aircraft robots and is deeply trusted by other co-workers. He is nicknamed "Mr. Bako" (バコさん, Bako-san) and gives off a Shōwa atmosphere. Sometimes he displays an unexpected skill, but his past in shrouded in mystery.

Following STORAGE's disbandment, Inaba quit GAFJ and entrusting his former workers in SAAG to take care of the SAA Units.

Kojiro Inaba is portrayed by Jun Hashizume (橋爪 淳, Hashizume Jun).[19][20][4]

Yuka Ohta[edit]

Yuka Ohta (オオタ ユカ, Ōta Yuka)[b][20][21] is the 22-year-old lead scientist with passion for monsters, hence her occupation in STORAGE allows her to observe them closely. Yuka develops the anti-monster combat robots and knowledgeable about biology and historic legends, which help with her analysis. When conducting experiments on monsters, Yuka brings their essence or specific body parts to STORAGE's headquarters for examination.[22] She often makes and offers questionable juice mix with mysterious ingredients to others.

Yuka's fondness in monsters started in her great-grandmother's hometown, Shishigaoka Town (獅子ヶ丘町, Shishigaoka-chō), 18 years prior to the series. During her stay at her great-grandmother's home, after hearing the legend of Horoboros from her great-grandmother, she encountered the very monsters when she was lost in its territory at night.[23] After STORAGE's disbandment, Yuka was relegated to the work of a researcher in Monster Research Center.

Yuka usually carries a personal tablet for communication and analysis purposes. It can also act as a control console by attaching it to a SAA Unit's cockpit.[24] The only SAA she ever piloted was the King Joe STORAGE Custom, remote controlling the Leg Carrier to assist Yoko/Sevenger in finishing Barossa III.

Yuka Ohta is portrayed by Hikari Kuroki (黒木 ひかり, Kuroki Hikari).[20][21][4] As a child, Yuka is portrayed by Azuki Terada (寺田 藍月, Terada Azuki).

Maintenance group members[edit]

  • Satoshi (サトシ):[c] One of Yoko's admirers and loses in an arm-wrestling match in order to ask her out on a date. During STORAGE's disbandment and formation of SAAG, Satoshi choose to quit GAFJ out of protest against their upper management. He is portrayed by Reo Sato (佐藤 玲央, Satō Reo).
  • Seiji Siose (シオセ セイジ, Shiose Seiji): A member of Satoshi's circle of friends. Alongside Hiroshi, he choose to join the succeeding group SAAG despite Satoshi's protest, as both men wanting to provide financial support for their family members. He is portrayed by Fuma Kakuda (角田 楓馬, Kakuda Fūma).[25]
  • Hiroshi Irizuki (イリヅキ ヒロシ, Irizuki Hiroshi): He is portrayed by Daichi Takaoka (高岡 大地, Takaoka Daichi).[26][27]

SAA[edit]

The SAA (特空機, Tokkūki, acronym for "Special Airborne Armor"),[4] also known as Anti-Monster Special Airborne Armor (対怪獣特殊空挺機甲, Tai Kaijū Tokushu Kūtei Kikō) are giant robots manufactured by STORAGE in order to combat against monsters and participating in rescue operations.[28][29] The mechas were developed by lead scientist Yuka and maintained by Inaba's team of mechanics after each sortie.[19][21] Due to limited budget, only two units (Sevenger and Windom) were initially manufactured, although additional models are considered for development.[30] As revealed by the director, the SAA units were made based on GAFJ's decade-long attempt in studying and reverse-engineer of Grigio Raiden's mechanical physiology on Yamanashi Prefecture. With the sole exception of Sevenger, the SAA Units were relegated to SAAG after STORAGE's disbandment.

  • SAA 1 Sevenger (特空機1号 セブンガー, Tokkūki Ichigō Sebungā):[28][30] The first of STORAGE's mecha to be created and the first human-built robot mecha, piloted Haruki and/or Yoko.[1] Within each missions, Sevenger can only operate for 3 minutes, based on its three battery packs.[1] In terms of long-distance transportation from STORAGE's base, it has a jetpack with separate fuel. Inaba would modify Sevenger to include Rigid Core Iron Fist Rocket (硬芯鉄拳弾, Kōshin Tekken Dan) punch attack. At some point after Grigio Raiden's death, Sevenger was decommissioned to be put in a museum for display as King Joe took over its role as STORAGE's major SAA unit.[31] During STORAGE's disbandment and Alien Barossa III's attack, Yoko choose to pilot Sevenger in against the alien and finish it with Beliarok's help. First appeared in episode 34 of Ultraman Leo.[29] Sevenger's introduction to the series was suggested by director Taguchi for a cuter character and to prevent Ultraman Z from being overshadowed by stronger robots at the series' premier.[32]
  • SAA 2 Windom (特空機2号 ウインダム, Tokkūki Nigō Uindamu):[28][30] The second of STORAGE's mecha, presented as speedy and versatile.[28] Its weapons are Laser Shot (レーザーショット, Rēzā Shotto) from forehead, Fast-Rotating Rigid Core Iron Fist (高回転硬芯鉄拳, Kō Kaiten Kōshin Tekken) arms and Type-20 Anti-Monster Guided Missiles (20式対怪獣誘導弾, Nijū-Shiki Tai Kaijū Yūdō-dan) fired from its porous rocket boosters.[28] Due to its lighter built, the robot is capable of operating for a longer period than Sevenger.[1] Unfortunately, Yuka discovered too late that its internal workings were revamped from her original plan, thus the charging period took longer than the intended process. Using a piece of Neronga's horn, she was able to speed up the process, allowing Windom to assist Z in against Telesdon/Erimaki Telesdon. After that, a new battery was made based on Neronga's horn.[31] First appeared in episode 1 of Ultraseven.[29]
  • SAA 3 King Joe STORAGE Custom (特空機3号 キングジョー ストレイジカスタム, Tokkūki Sangō Kingu Jō Sutoreiji Kasutamu): STORAGE's own take on Alien Barossa's King Joe robot after they salvaged its remains. Through analysis on the Pedan technology, STORAGE was able to construct an engine with 5 times of Windom's original output.[31] Its main weapons are Pedanium Particle Cannon (ペダニウム粒子砲, Pedaniumu Ryūshi-hō) on the right, Pedanium Hammer (ペダニウムハンマー, Pedaniumu Hanmā) on the left and Pedanium Guided Missiles (ペダニウム誘導弾, Pedaniumu Yūdō-dan) from its back. It can separate into four different vehicles (Head Fighter (ヘッドファイター, Heddo Faitā), Breast Tank (ブレストタンク, Buresuto Tanku), Core Ship (コアシップ, Koa Shippu) and Leg Carrier (レッグキャリアー, Reggu Kyariā)) and reconfigure into a Tank Mode (タンクモード, Tanku Mōdo).[33] In against a group of Kelbim, King Joe STORAGE Custom was fitted with the D4 Ray under Kuriyama's order as a test run, effectively causing an entire city block to be devoured by its energy until Z neutralizes it. In addition to King Joe, Mecha Gomora was also considered as one of STORAGE's contenders for SAA Units.[32]
  • SAA 4 Ultroid Zero (特空機4号 ウルトロイドゼロ, Tokkū-ki Yon-gō Urutoroido Zero): A Special Airborne Armor unit developed by GAFJ after STORAGE's disbandment, hence its development leader was Mai Yuki instead of Inaba.[34] It was built under the purpose of handling the D4 Ray, while incorporating combat data from the Ultra Warriors that STORAGE encountered and their King Joe STORAGE Custom.[35]

GAFJ[edit]

Global Allied Forces Japan (地球防衛軍日本支部, Chikyū Bōei-gun Nihon Shibu, shortened as "GAFJ") is the Japanese branch of the Global Allied Forces, an organization authorized to deal against monster attacks.[1] At some point after Baraba's demise, GAFJ begins to experiment with Yapool's remains of his dimensional energy, using it as a Extradimensional Destruction Weapon D4 Ray (異次元壊滅兵器 D4レイ, Ijigen Kaimetsu Heiki Dī Fō Rei) as part of their warfare against monsters.[35]

Due to STORAGE members protested the D4 after seeing its unethical use to destroy a group of Kelbim, GAFJ took over their arsenal once Kuriyama had them disbanded. The team was replaced with 1st Special Airborne and Armored Group (第一特殊空挺機甲群, Dai Ichi Tokushu Kūtei Kikō-gun, SAAG) to manage the SAA units in against future monster attacks.

Director Kuriyama[edit]

Director Kuriyama (クリヤマ長官, Kuriyama chokan)[b][36][37] is the 64-year-old director of the GAFJ and founder of STORAGE. Despite his long, nagging lectures, he is actually a worrywart who is prone to stomach aches. He is often worrying of the collateral damages brought by the monster attacks and the cost for development budget.

After overseeing the creation of D4, Kuriyama had the weapon fitted into King Joe STORAGE Custom and coerced Yoko into using it against a group of Kelbims. He disband STORAGE after a majority of its members question their unethical use of D4 and reform it into SAAG.

Director Kuriyama is portrayed by Hisahiro Ogura (小倉 久寛, Ogura Hisahiro).[36][37][4]

Shinya Kaburagi[edit]

Shinya Kaburagi (カブラギ シンヤ, Kaburagi Shin'ya)[b] is a 26-year-old researcher from GAFJ's Monster Research Center (怪獣研究センター, Kaijū Kenkyū Sentā)'s biochemical research department.[37][38][1] While delivering a canister of Genegarg's remains, Celebro possessed him as a medium to operate on Earth.[14] Due to Kaburagi's body sustaining heavy injuries after months of possession, Celebro left him for Asano while pinning all of his crimes to Kaburagi to retain his cover.

Shinya Kaburagi is portrayed by Rihito Noda (野田 理人, Noda Rihito).[38][37][4]

Minor GAFJ officers[edit]

  • Asano (アサノ, 17, 21):[d] The captain of GAFJ's police division, who issued an arrest warrant to "Kaburagi" after his numerous atrocities in the monster attacks, unaware that the youth was possessed by Celebro the entire time. Although he managed to pin Kaburagi, Asano was disarmed by Juggler and forcefully possessed by Celebro to be his new host. He is portrayed by Yosuke Minokawa (三濃川 陽介, Minokawa Yōsuke).[39]
  • Mai Yuki (ユウキ マイ, Yūki Mai, 21-25): The strategic manager of the GAFJ, she is the head of the development project for Ultroid Zero.[34] She is portrayed by Maya Hayashi (林 摩耶, Hayashi Maya).[40]

Ultra Warriors[edit]

Ultraman Z[edit]

Ultraman Z (ウルトラマンゼット, Urutoraman Zetto)[e] is the titular hero of the series, an Inter Galactic Defense Force cadet whose age is 5,000 years old. Z speaks in an unusual dialect, but overall has a passionate sense of justice and seeks apprenticeship under his idol, Zero.[30] His name was given to him by Ultraman Ace back in the Land of Light, intending the young warrior to fight to the very end of his life.

During the events of Ultra Galaxy Fight: The Absolute Conspiracy, Z accompanied Mebius in the mission to track down Tartarus while facing against the Zetton Army.[41] In the series proper, he was entrusted with the Z Riser and chased Genegarg to Earth, where he bonded with Haruki to revive the young pilot's life.[10][11] In addition to reclaiming the stolen Ultra Medals, Z assisted STORAGE in fighting against monster attacks and Celebro's constant machinations on Earth.

His Ultra Z Riser, the device which he gave to Haruki as means of transformation, can also double as a combat weapon. His true form is designated as Original (オリジナル, Orijinaru) and is described as a rookie Ultra Warrior whose strength is either half or tierce of an experienced fighter.[10][11] His finishing move is Zestium Beam (ゼスティウム光線, Zesutiumu Kōsen), which can also be utilized by any of his other forms.[30][42][43] In his original form, Z can only sustain for 50 seconds on Earth and transforms only during emergency cases.

To make up for his lack of additional strength, Z can access Ultra Fusion (ウルトラフュージョン, Urutora Fyūjon) forms when Haruki scans three different Ultra Medals of past Ultra Warriors using the Z Riser.[42] These forms are capable of using a shared additional weapon named Z Lance Arrow (ゼットランスアロー, Zetto Ransu Arō), an ancient artifact from Alaska that was initially utilized by an ancient Ultra to seal Peguila.[1]

  • Alpha Edge (アルファエッジ, Arufa Ejji): A speed-based form obtained through Ultraseven, Leo and Zero's Ultra Medals. Z fights with the use of martial arts movements from master-apprentice chain components he is based on and is able to summon a pair of energy crests as makeshift nunchaku.[12][13] His finishing move is the Zestium Meizer (ゼスティウムメーザー, Zesutiumu Mēzā).[42]
  • Beta Smash (ベータスマッシュ, Bēta Sumasshu): A strength-based form obtained through Ultraman, Ace and Taro's Ultra Medals. Z fights with a dignified style akin to those of a professional wrestler.[12][13] His finishing move is the Zestium Upper (ゼスティウムアッパー, Zesutiumu Appā).[43] Through sheer will, Z can transform his crest into a set of Ultra Holes (ウルトラホール, Urutora Hōru), resembling Ace's and combine their attack to perform Space Z (スペースZ, Supēsu Zetto).
  • Gamma Future (ガンマフューチャー, Ganma Fyūchā): An agility-based form obtained through Tiga, Dyna and Gaia's Ultra Medals.[12][13] He is skilled in versatile beam attacks and tricky fighting styles.[12][13] The Medals required to access this form were originally salvaged by Juggler before he returned it to the Ultra at the height of Five King's attack. By accessing Gamma Illusion (ガンマイリュージョン, Ganma Iryūjon), he can summon the Ultras that make up his form to simultaneously fire their beam attacks. His finishing move is the Zestium Drive (ゼスティウムドライブ, Zesutiumu Doraibu).[43]
  • Sigma Breastar (シグマブレスター, Shiguma Buresutā): A form that is exclusive to Ultraman Fusion Fight: Z Heat, accessed through the use of Zoffy, Tiga and Mebius' Ultra Medals. It allows Z to freely manipulate heat and is able to exert both brute strength and super speed. His finishing move in this form is the Zestium Ray Burst (ゼスティウムレイバースト, Zesutiumu Rei Bāsuto).[44]
  • Delta Rise Claw (デルタライズクロー, Deruta Raizu Kurō): Z's strongest form, obtained from using Zero Beyond, Belial Atrocious and Geed's Rise Ultra Medals (ライズウルトラメダル, Raizu Urutora Medaru). This form allows Z to generate golden energy storms and is the only one capable of wielding the Beliarok.[45][46][47] His finishing move is the Zestium Slash (ゼスティウム光輪, Zesutiumu Kōrin).

Ultraman Z is voiced by Tasuku Hatanaka (畠中 祐, Hanata Tasuku).[12][13] In the English dub of Ultra Galaxy Fight: The Absolute Conspiracy, he is voiced by Peter von Gomm.[48][49]

Beliarok[edit]

The Phantom World Sword Beliarok (幻界魔剣 ベリアロク, Genkai Maken Beriaroku) was originally a space needle required to defeat Greeza by sewing the anomaly itself. When Geed was briefly assimilated into the monster, part of his Belial DNA merged with the sword, giving it sentience and the abilities of Ultraman Belial. Despite being Z's personal weapon, his allegiance is fickle and is able to switch to other users so long that they satisfy his own interest. Although Juggler won the Beliarok fair and square, the weapon decided to stick to Haruki after having faith in the young boy's ability to satiate his interest.

In addition to redirecting his opponent's attack, the Beliarok can execute three finishers by pressing the button behind his head. The attacks are Deathcium Slash (デスシウムスラッシュ, Desushiumu Surasshu), Deathcium Claw (デスシウムクロー, Desushiumu Kurō) and Deathcium Fang (デスシウムファング, Desushiumu Fangu). Should anyone try to wield Beliarok without his consent, he can deliver a small lightning bolt or increase its own density to prevent from being misused.

The Beliarok is voiced by Yūki Ono (小野 友樹, Ono Yūki), who also voices Ultraman Belial in recent media since Ultra Zero Fight.[50]

Ultraman Zero[edit]

Riku Asakura/Ultraman Geed[edit]

Riku Asakura (朝倉 リク, Asakura Riku) is the genetically-cloned son of late Ultraman Belial, who defy his heritage as Ultraman Geed (ウルトラマンジード, Urutoraman Jīdo) from the series of the same name.[12][13]

Due to the Devil Splinter being widespread across the universe, Riku participated in the duty to hunt and exterminate them. In Planet Ain (惑星アイン, Wakusei Ain), Riku lost his Geed Riser after being damaged from fighting Gillvalis, forcing Pega to deliver the Z Riser from Ultraman Hikari as a compensation.[15][14] While chasing the rogue AI to Earth, Riku found himself allying with Z, STORAGE and Juggler before getting kidnapped into manufacturing Belial's Monster Medal.[14] Despite wanting to assist Z in defending Earth, Haruki reassured his senior as he joined Pega in tracking the Devil Splinters in space. Riku returned at some point of time when Greeza rampaged on Earth. While assimilated into the void monster, Geed managed to briefly halt its actions while his Belial DNA created the Beliarok, which Z in the Delta Rise Claw managed to obtain in slaying Greeza. As Hikari had fixed the Geed Riser, Riku decided to give Haruki his own Ultra Medals and resume his original mission.

By inserting his own personalized Ultra Access Card and a trio of Ginga, X and Orb Medals into the Ultra Z Riser, Riku can access a new form of Geed, Galaxy Rising (ギャラクシーライジング, Gyarakushī Raijingu).[12][13] The form is based on his default Fusion Rise, Primitve, focusing on a balanced fighting style but serve as an upgrade over the former. In the same way as Z, Geed can summon an enlarged Z Riser as a handheld weapon, allowing him to execute Galaxy Burst (ギャラクシーバースト, Gyarakushī Bāsuto). His finishing move is the Wrecking Phoenix (レッキングフェニックス, Rekkingu Fenikkusu).[14] The three Medals were given to Haruki when Geed's original Riser was fixed, in addition to his own Ultraman Geed Medal (ウルトラマンジードメダル, Urutoraman Jīdo Medaru), which turns into the Ultraman Geed Rise Medal (ウルトラマンジードライズメダル, Urutoraman Jīdo Raizu Medaru) when Z assumes Delta Rise Claw.

Tatsuomi Hamada (濱田 龍臣, Hamada Tatsuomi) reprises his role as Riku Asakura.[12][13]

Sora[edit]

Sora (ソラ) is a Blue Tribe female Ultra that debuted in Ultraman Festival 2018, before making her video appearances in Ultra Galaxy Fight: The Absolute Conspiracy. She worked as a scientist under the tutelage of Ultraman Hikari and is a childhood friend of Ultraman Ribut. In Chapter 1 of The Absolute Conspiracy, Sora and Yullian were present on Planet Kanon when Leugocyte commenced its attack.[41] To rescue Max from being mutated into a monster, Sora volunteered her help to Hikari in creating the Gudis Vaccine (ゴーデスワクチン, Gōdesu Wakuchin).[51]

By herself, Sora can conjure the Shield Fleur (シールド・フルール, Shīrudo Furūru) energy barrier from her hands.

Megumi Han (潘 めぐみ, Han Megumi) reprised her voice role as Sora since Ultraman Festival 2018.[41] Megumi also voiced Ultraman Justice on a dual role in Ultra Galaxy Fight.[52][53][54]

Ultraman Ribut[edit]

First appearing in Ultra Galaxy Fight: New Generation Heroes, Ultraman Ribut (ウルトラマンリブット, Urutoraman Ributto) is a member of the peacekeeping organization Galaxy Rescue Force (ギャラクシーレスキューフォース, Gyarakushī Resukyū Fōsu) and dedicated to protect the life forms in outer space.

He was invited by Zero in episode 20 of Ultraman Z & Ultraman Zero Voice Drama to give Z a lecture about the Galaxy Rescue Force before he left on an emergency.

The first chapter of The Absolute Conspiracy focuses on Ribut's early days as a Civilization Guardian before his induction into the Galaxy Rescue Force. While patrolling with Ultraman Max, the two were caught in an attack from a revenge-seeking villain.[55][56]

Wataru Komada (駒田 航, Komada Wataru) reprises his voice role as Ultraman Ribut.[57] In the English dub, he is voiced by Josh Keller.[48][49]

Other Ultra Warriors[edit]

In Ultraman Z, the Land of Light developed both the Ultra Z Risers and Ultra Medals to combat multiple universal threats, including widespread cases of Devil Splinter attacks. The theft of these items by Genegarg and its destruction on Earth scattered the Medals across the city, with selected few are already in possession of Haruki and other humans.
