  • The second sentence of the series' first tagline is a homage to the third verse from Ultraman Taro.
  • The "T" denoting Taiga's name in the title card is similar to Taro's title card, which also did the same albeit in a more visible manner.

List of Ultraman Taiga characters

Characters from the Japanese television series Ultraman Taiga

This is the character list of 2019 Ultra SeriesUltraman Taiga. Starting with September 29, 2019, the show will coincide its airing with YouTube-exclusive miniseries Ultra Galaxy Fight: New Generation Heroes.

E.G.I.S.[edit]

The Enterprise of Guard and Investigation Services (警備及び調査を専門とする会社, Keibi Oyobi Chōsa o Senmon to Suru Kaisha), shortened as E.G.I.S. (イージス, Ījisu) is a private security organization which handles alien-related cases on a daily basis.[1][2]

Hiroyuki Kudo[edit]

Hiroyuki Kudo (工藤 ヒロユキ, Kudō Hiroyuki)[a] is the 22-year-old protagonist who has a kind personality and strong sense of justice, dreaming of becoming a bridge between humankind, aliens and Ultramen.[3][4][5][2]

As a child, Hiroyuki tried to save Chibisuke from the Lecuumm alien but was rescued by Taiga's wandering particles of light to survive his fall. During his adulthood and membership in E.G.I.S., Hiroyuki was given the means to become Taiga during combat and eventually two other members of Tri-Squad that made their way to Earth. After his attempt in freeing Taiga from Tregear's corruption, he was accepted as the honorary member of the Tri-Squad. In the final episodes, Hiroyuki's double life as a Tri-Squad member was revealed to have been known by Kana and Homare, both of them chastise him for his poor attempt in keeping secret.

In Ultraman Taiga The Movie, Hiroyuki becomes the target of the Villain Guild, which lead to the members of New Generation Heroes appearing one after another to protect him.[6][7][8] Hiroyuki became reckless in the fight, which resulted in Taiga's concern for the youth.[9]

Hiroyuki Kudo is portrayed by Yuki Inoue (井上 祐貴, Inoue Yūki).[3][4][5][10][2] As a child, Hiroyuki is portrayed by Kōki Ishige (石毛 宏樹, Ishige Kōki).

Homare Soya[edit]

Homare Soya (宗谷 ホマレ, Sōya Homare) is a 25-year-old member with a sense of justice and is faithful to any given mission. He is Hiroyuki's senior and is often enraged when the former ran away in important missions. As he often took on dangerous tasks, Homare puts his high physicality to use while usually partnering with Hiroyuki.[1]

In his past, Homare was actually an Alien Amayarm (アマヤルム星人, Amayarumu Seijin)[11] banished from his homeworld and made his reputation as a renowned fighter in an alien gang. He provided refuge to an outcast Volk and joined the Villain Guild at a very young age but quit it after finding a new resolve in his life, which lead to his membership in E.G.I.S.. Despite his human-like appearance, Homare displays several of his alien physicality, including the ability to jump from high places and break free from metal chains.

Homare Soya is portrayed by Ryotaro (諒太郎, Ryōtarō).[1][2]

Pirika Asahikawa[edit]

Pirika Asahikawa (旭川 ピリカ, Asahikawa Pirika) is a 23-year-old operator who is capable of handling cyber security-related cases.[1] Although usually did her job from the office, she can also participate in outside missions, having did so to replace Hiroyuki due to his arm injury.

Her true identity is an android named Pirika 03 (ピリカ03, Pirika Zero San), one of the many androids created by scientists of Planet Eomapp (エオマップ星, Eomappu Sei) that went scattered to eliminate Woola at the cost of their own well-being.[12] She was discovered by Kana 7 years prior to the series and was given a place in E.G.I.S.. After her boss Kana was rescued from Gorothunder, Kirisaki attempts to harass her in order to spite Hiroyuki but switched plans by summoning Woola after probing through Pirika's mind. Fully aware of her mission, Pirika used the Villain Guild's brainwave controlling device (脳波コントロール装置, Nōha Kontorōru Sōchi) to digitize herself, only to discover the planet eater was only troubled by its own existence.[12] Because of this, she instructed E.G.I.S. in an operation to satiate its hunger. Although seemingly killed in Woola's explosion, Taiga managed to salvage at least her memories and inspector Sakura contacted former residents of Planet Eomapp to provide a spare body for her, allowing Pirika to be restored and reunited with E.G.I.S..

In Ultraman Taiga The Movie, Pirika was infected by a virus during her undercover in the alien hideout. She was saved by Daichi Ozora, who lost his ability to unite with X.[9]

Pirika Asahikawa is portrayed by Ayuri Yoshinaga (吉永 アユリ, Yoshinaga Ayuri), who replaces Momoka (桃果) from the same talent agency due to the latter's scheduling conflict.[13][2]

Kana Sasaki[edit]

Kana Sasaki (佐々木 カナ, Sasaki Kana) is the 38-year-old president of E.G.I.S., whose previously worked as a police officer in External Affairs Division X (外事X課, Gaiji Ekkusu-ka). After her failure to protect a Cicada Girl from being delivered to a research lab from a murder case, Kana left her job to establish E.G.I.S. She puts up a rather playful facade but shows a serious attitude when handling an alien case and is observant of her workers.[1] Additionally as a result from her past trauma, Kana becomes dedicated to help both human and aliens alike, going as far as to give the former Villain Guild aliens Homare, Magma and Merkind and the android Pirika a membership in E.G.I.S.. Alongside Homare, Kana was already aware of Hiroyuki's double life as the Tri-Squad but keeps it to herself until the final battle with Woola.

In Ultraman Taiga The Movie, Kana lead the E.G.I.S. members in an undercover operation within the Villain Guild's hideout. There, she found herself under allying with Gai Kurenai.[9]

Kana Sasaki is portrayed by Chiharu Niiyama (新山 千春, Niiyama Chiharu).[1][2]

Alien Magma[edit]

Saber Tyrant Alien Magma (サーベル暴君 マグマ星人, Sāberu Bōkun Maguma Seijin, 1, 24, 25, Movie) is a former member of Villain Guild who kidnapped the Baby Zandrias as a leverage to call its mother in a fight against their Zegun, forced to fall back when Zegun was killed by Hellberus. After Zolin's arrest and Woola's arrival, Magma and Merkind attempted to leave Earth but changed their mind after being inspired by Pirika's bravery, offering their assistance to E.G.I.S. in an operation to neutralize Woola.[12] Magma rode his Magma Saucer (マグマ円盤, Maguma Enban) alongside Homare to launch a white hole missile, therefore allowing Taiga to free the monster from its own existence.[12] As a result of their cooperation, both aliens were given membership in E.G.I.S. by Kana.

In Ultraman Taiga The Movie, Alien Magma was injured from E.G.I.S.'s fight with Dada's team of Villain Guild. He was absent during the New Generation Heroes' fight with Tregear, but assisted Homare off-camera to provide a map of the possessed-Taro's locations.

Alien Magma is voiced by Takaya Kuroda (黒田 崇矢, Kuroda Takaya), his species first appearing in episode 1 of Ultraman Leo.[12]

Alien Merkind[edit]

Space Merchant Alien Merkind (宇宙商人 マーキンド星人, Uchū Shōnin Mākindo Seijin, 1, 2, 24, 25, Movie) is a former auctioneer of Villain Guild, responsible for selling the group's captured monsters to the highest bidders. Although not appeared, Merkind was responsible for purchasing the Monster Bomb Darebolic alongside the Alien Zetton "Zolin". At some point after Zolin's capture and Pirika's digitization into Woola's body, Merkind and Alien Magma offer their assistance, wherein the former took over Pirika's position as the analyzer of E.G.I.S.' attempt to satiate Woola.[12] His involvement earned him a membership in E.G.I.S. by Kana at the end of the series, currently working as the team's accountant.

Merkind was present during the cold opening of Ultraman Taiga The Movie, but was absent during the New Generation Heroes' fight with Tregear.

Alien Merkind is voiced by Takehisa Hirose (廣瀬 武央, Hirose Takehisa), his species first appearing in episode 3 of Ultraseven X.[12]

Ultra Warriors[edit]

Tri-Squad[edit]

The Tri-Squad (トライスクワッド, Torai Sukuwaddo) is a trio of Ultramen with different origins who join forces to preserve peace in space. Initially thought to have killed by Tregear, their scattered lights wandered in outer space as they reunite on Earth bonding with the same host, Hiroyuki.[2]

Hiroyuki transforms into either one of them through the Taiga Spark (タイガスパーク, Taiga Supāku), an item which was developed by Ultraman Taro and Tregear and was originally his Taro-let (タロウレット, Tarō-retto).[3][4][5][2] The item functions by scanning Ultra Taiga Accessory (ウルトラタイガアクセサリー, Urutora Taiga Akusesarī), each with different results:[14][2]

  • Key Holder Type (キーホルダータイプ, Kī Horudā Taipu): Represents the Tri-Squad's transformations.[2]
  • Bracelet Type (ブレスレットタイプ, Buresuretto Taipu): Powers of past Ultra Warriors, specifically the New Generation Heroes. It functions by empowering the Tri-Squad's finishing techniques.
  • Ring Type (指輪タイプ, Yubiwa Taipu): Also called as Monster Rings (怪獣リング, Kaijū Ringu), it was created from remains of defeated monsters.[15] Its mainly used by Taiga to tap into the monster's own power, but was carefully planned by Tregear as a way of influencing him through slow corruption.[15]

Ultraman Taiga[edit]

Ultraman Taiga (ウルトラマンタイガ, Urutoraman Taiga) is the eponymous Ultraman who is the son of Ultraman Taro and is also known as the "Hero of Light" (光の勇者, Hikari no Yūsha).[2] Although the founder and leader of Tri-Squad, he yearns for his father's respect and grows to become a proper hero despite his youthful age, 4,800 years old.[10][b]

In his younger days, Taiga found solace in the blue Ultra named Firis and trains harder after being overshadowed by his father's popularity. During his journey in outer space, he join forces with Andro Ares in Planet Maiji to fight against Imbeeza's platoon of Guar Army. He would soon met Titas and Fuma within their respective homeworlds, which resulted in the formation of Tri-Squad. Following his defeat by Tregear, Taiga's particles of light wandered in space-time continuum and bonded with Hiroyuki to save the boy from a great fall. As his body recuperated in the span of 12 years, Taiga reveal himself to save the Zandrias family from Hellberus while dedicating his life to save Earth from multiple threats. Taiga grew stronger with his own set of powers, but slowly fell into the corruption induced from prolonged use of the Monster Rings. He was rescued by Hiroyuki and eventually gains a new form, Tri-Strium, as a result. After the battle against Woola, Taiga offered Tregear a chance of redemption, but was rejected and forced to defeat him with Quattro Squad Blaster.[12]

At some point later on, Taiga found himself facing against his corrupted father and dealt with a reckless Hiroyuki. Riku give the Ultra an advice of facing one's father, and that only their son that could save them.[9]

Taiga's fighting skill is balanced and utilizes the same stance as his father. His finisher is Strium Blaster (ストリウムブラスター, Sutoriumu Burasutā).[10] After being given the Plasma Zero-let (プラズマゼロレット, Purazuma Zero-retto) by Zero,[12] Taiga and any of his forms can augment Zero's abilities to his own; Taiga Dynamite Shoot (タイガダイナマイトシュート, Taiga Dainamaito Shūto), Taiga Emerium Blaster (タイガエメリウムブラスター, Taiga Emeriumu Burasutā) and Wide Taiga Shot (ワイドタイガショット, Waido Taiga Shotto). Taiga would later gain access to other forms in the series progress:

  • Photon-Earth (フォトンアース, Foton Āsu): Taiga's power-up form, which he obtained through Ai Tennoji's help. His personal Key Holder was upgraded into Photon-Earth Key Holder (フォトンアースキーホルダー, Foton Āsu Kī Horudā) as Hiroyuki scans it thrice and empowers the Ultra with the energy of the Earth and Sun. Declaring himself as the "Hero of the Land and Sky" (大地天空の勇者, Daichi Tenkū no Yūsha), his body color becomes predominantly black and dons a set of gold and silver armor. His finisher in this form is Aurum Strium (オーラムストリウム, Ōramu Sutoriumu).[15]
  • Tri-Strium (トライストリウム, Torai Sutoriumu): Taiga's strongest form also known as the "Hero of Bonds" (絆の勇者, Kizuna no Yūsha) when Hiroyuki accessed the Tri-Squad-let (トライスクワッドレット, Torai Sukuwaddo-retto), combining with the rest of the Tri-Squad members and his human host. Taiga obtains the sword named Taiga Tri Blade (タイガトライブレード, Taiga Torai Burēdo), allowing him to utilize enhanced versions of the Tri-Squad members' finishing moves or his independent attack, Tri-Strium Burst (トライストリウムバースト, Torai Sutoriumu Bāsuto).[15]

Ultraman Taiga is voiced by Takuma Terashima (寺島 拓篤, Terashima Takuma).[1][2][12]

Ultraman Titas[edit]

Ultraman Titas (ウルトラマンタイタス, Urutoraman Taitasu) is the 9,000-year-old "Wise Man of Power" (力の賢者, Chikara no Kenja) from Planet U40, the birthplace of Ultraman Joneus.[10] Unlike the rest of his kind, Titas is actually the son to a pair of Heller's Soldiers as he was jettisoned to the Planet U40 by his father, who wanted his son to follow a different path. During the Ultra People's final stand against the Heller Empire, Titas was hesitant in initiating Ultra Change until the death of Matia triggered his first transformation and killed the monster Kishiadar. Titas met Taiga when the latter visited U40 and later on forms the Tri-Squad after Fuma joined them.

Following his defeat from Tregear, Titas' particles of light roamed in outer space and assisted the spirit of Nana Kujō to stop her vengeful husband from destroying Cozmo Technica.[2] After fulfilling her wish and stopping Galactron MK2, Titas bonded with Hiroyuki as he reunited with Taiga.

With his carefully trained body and healthy spirit, Titas is skilled in heavyweight battles. Being an Ultra Person of U40, Titas bears a Star Symbol (スターシンボル, Sutā Shinboru) that he obtained by the Great Sage but operates normally like a Land of Light Ultra's Color Timer.[2] His black coloration is said to be a remnant from his Anti-Ultra Humanoid origin. His finisher is Planium Buster (プラニウムバスター, Puraniumu Basutā).[10] In the Voice Drama, Titas originally transformed with his race's Beam Flasher before he acquired his copy of Taiga Spark.

Ultraman Titas is voiced by Satoshi Hino (日野 聡, Hino Satoshi).[1][2][12]

Ultraman Fuma[edit]

Ultraman Fuma (ウルトラマンフーマ, Urutoraman Fūma) is the 5,000-year-old "Ruler of Wind" (風の覇者, Kaze no Hasha) from Planet O-50, the origin of Ultraman Orb, Ultraman Rosso and Ultraman Blu.[10][2] Prior to the series, Fuma was originally a human-like son of a climber who gave up halfway to the Warrior's Peak of Planet O-50. He was born on said planet as his father was incapable of returning to his home world out of embarrassment. While making his living as a street child, the boy received tutelage under an alien named Gerg and the two since then took various odd jobs in hopes of being recognized by O-50's Ring of Light. After being injured by the Interstellar Alliance due to being tricked into fighting his mentor, Fuma was brought to the Warrior's Peak and becomes an Ultraman in order to save his life. He had since remain as an Ultraman to honor Gerg. Fuma would met Taiga and Titas when his home world was under attack by alien forces and together, the three defend the Warrior's Peak and form the Tri-Squad.

After his seeming death from Tregear, Fuma's particles entered a jewelry which passed on to various users, with the recent owner being the Villain Guild itself. Volk stole it in hopes of selling it to support the impoverished alien children before Fuma escaped to fight Darebolic and rejoin the Tri-Squad.

He has a rough personality, but also a strong sense of duty. Fuma utilizes speed and agility during combat, as well as firing energy shuriken.[2] His finisher is Polar Star Light Wave Shuriken (極星光波手裏剣, Kyokusei Kōha Shuriken),[10][2] which is said to be taught by his alien instructor Gerg even before his transition into an Ultra.

Ultraman Fuma is voiced by Shōta Hayama (葉山 翔太, Hayama Shōta).[1][12]

Ultraman Ribut[edit]

Ultraman Ribut (ウルトラマンリブット, Urutoraman Ributto) is an Ultraman from the Land of Light that previously debuted from the 2014 season of Malaysian animation Upin & Ipin, later on making his live debut in Ultra Galaxy Fight: New Generation Heroes. Aged 5,700 years old, he 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.[18][19] After rescuing a Ragon in Planet Liquitor, Ribut fulfills Taro's request to rescue Rosso and Blu from Planet Penol but failed to apprehend an escaping Tregear before the evil Ultra sent his Red Kings as distractions.

In battle, Ribut utilizes the Asian martial art silat and has G-Crystals (Gクリスタル, Jī Kurisutaru) on each of his arms and legs, while his finisher is Galaxium Blaster (ギャラクシウムブラスター, Gyarakushiumu Burasutā).[18] His weapons are the Ribut Blocker (リブットブロッカー, Ributto Burokkā) on his left forearm to utilize beam attacks and the Spreader Rod (スプレッダーロッド, Supureddā Roddo)Bō for melee combat.[18]

Ultraman Ribut is voiced by Wataru Komada (駒田 航, Komada Wataru) in Japanese[19][18] and Iain Gibb in English. His appearance is designed by Takeuchi (竹内), a young designer of Tsuburaya Productions.[20]

Ultraman Reiga[edit]

Ultraman Reiga (ウルトラマンレイガ, Urutoraman Reiga) is an Ultra that debuted in Ultraman Taiga The Movie. He is a result of all New Generation Heroes combining with Hiroyuki into a new warrior.[21]

To transform, Hiroyuki drags the New Generation Eye (ニュージェネレーションアイ, Nyū Jenerēshon Ai) to his face and press the activation button.[21] As it contains all 11 New Generation Heroes, Reiga has the ability to fight on par with Grimdo. He retains the Tri-Squad's Taiga Spark, allowing him to execute Reiga Ultimate Blaster (レイガ・アルティメットブラスター, Reiga Arutimetto Burasutā) as his finishing move once Hiroyuki scans the New Generation-let (ニュージェネレーションレット, Nyū Jenerēshon-retto).

Ultraman Reiga is voiced by Takuma Terashima, who is also Taiga's voice actor.

Grimdo[edit]

Malicious Demonic Monster Grimdo (邪神魔獣 グリムド, Jashin Majū Gurimudo) is the final villain of Ultraman Taiga The Movie. Long ago, Grimdo existed as a primordial deity since the era of chaos and was sealed within Planet Borges (惑星ボルヘス, Wakusei Boruhesu) to maintain the balance of the universe. During Tregear's self-exile from the Land of Light, he freed Grimdo from its prison and form a pact by absorbing the monster into his body, with a set of restraints keeping its presence at bay. With Grimdo's nigh-omnipotent powers, Tregear strength surpassed even a Super Ultraman and is capable of using bodies of his alternate selves as backups to cheat death.

After his defeat by Ultraman Taiga Tri-Strium's Quattro Squad Blaster, the seal broke and Grimdo was temporarily sealed through the New Generation Heroes after sacrificing their transformation powers.[21] Six months later in Ultraman Taiga The Movie, Grimdo was unleashed from its seal and possessed Ultraman Taro during his attempt on using Ultra Dynamite, placing him under Tregear's control. When the Tri-Squad expelled Grimdo from Taro, Tregear merged with the ancient god to restore its full power as it fought against and was defeated by Ultraman Reiga's Reiga Ultimate Blaster.

"The story of the Son of Taro. And here before us stands Taiga!"

"Let's go, partner! Buddy Go!"

Tagline

Ultraman Taiga is a 2019 tokusatsu series created by Tsuburaya Productions and the 31st entry in the Ultra Series. While this show is officially the first entry of the Ultra Series in the Reiwa Era, it is still counted as part of the New Generation Heroes trend that started from Ultraman Ginga.

Long ago, the son of Ultraman Taro named Taiga had saved Earth from an unknown catastrophe and merged with a young boy named Hiroyuki Kudo, remaining dormant ever since. Years later, the boy grows up to join E.G.I.S. (Enterprise of Guard and Investigation Services), a private security organization tasked in handling alien-related cases. Unbeknownst to him, Hiroyuki carries Ultraman Taiga’s “particle of light”. The new story begins as Taiga's powers revive from Hiroyuki's body, and later the boy bonded with two more Ultras of different origin. Meanwhile, Ultraman Tregear returns from Ultraman R/B the Movie as the major Big Bad.

Starting with September 29, 2019, Ultraman Taiga will coincide its airing with the YouTube-exclusive miniseries Ultra Galaxy Fight: New Generation Heroes, the latter is a prequel to the former itself.

The first trailer can be seen here.


Ultraman Taiga provides examples of the following tropes:

  • Alien Among Us: According to the story description, aliens had been living secretly in the human society.
  • Badass Crew: The first series in a while to actually focus on one, with the last time being Ultraman X.
  • Balance, Speed, Strength Trio: The Three Ultramen share the same host (Hiroyuki) and form a team named Tri Squad. In respecitve order, Taiga as the Balanced, Fuma as the Speed, Titas as the Strength.
  • Big Bad: Tregear is the main antagonist of the series, although later the Big Damn Movie titled Ultraman Taiga The Movie: New Generation Climax reveals the Malicious Demon Grimdo to be The Man Behind the Man and the source of Tregear's powers.
  • Bookends:
    • The first episode's title is "Buddy, Go!", the transformation call used by Hiroyuki to transform into one of the three Tri-Squad Ultras. The final episode's title is "Buddy, Steady, Go!", the opening theme of the series.
    • Ultra Galaxy Fight: New Generation Heroes begins with the New Generation Ultras (Ginga, Victory,X, Orb, Geed, Rosso and Blu) team up to rescue Ultrawoman Grigio and Ultraman Zero from Ultra Dark Killer, which then leads up to their confrontation Tregear in the first episode. In New Generation Climax, which serves as the Fully Absorbed Finale of the series; the New Generation Heroes and their human hosts team up with Hiroyuki and the Tri-Squad to battle Tregear and save Taro from the latter's brainwashing.
      • Again in Ultra Galaxy Fight, Taro instructs the New Generation Heroes to give Ginga power to defeat Ultra Dark Killer with the New Generation Dynamite. In New Generation Climax, Taro does the same to the New Generation Heroes by fusing themselves with Taiga to form Ultraman Reiga and destroy Grimdo.
    • For the New Generation Hero era as a whole. Beginning with Ultraman Ginga where Taro serves as The Mentor to Hikaru. Taiga in general serves as the finale for the New Generation Hero trend, with the titular Ultra being the son of Taro.
  • Continuity Nod: When the above trailer for Ultraman Taiga was released, the three Ultras are displayed with their home planet backgrounds: Taiga is Land of Light, Titas is the Greece-like scenery of U40, and Fuma is the peak of O-50.
  • "Do It Yourself" Theme Tune: The series' opening, "Buddy, Steady, Go" is written and sung by Takuma Terashima, who also voiced Ultraman Taiga himself.
  • Foreshadowing:
    • Episode 0 of Taiga (which can be watched in YouTube for free) is about Taiga viewing three past battles of his seniors. Two of them involves fighting their own friend while struggling with the power of bonds. That same thing happened in episode 16 when Taiga was brainwashed by Tregear and it took the help of Hiroyuki, Titas and Fuma to save him back.
    • How the villains in the show being able to create a Skull Gomora and a mindless clone of Ultraman Belial had the viewers wonder how they were able to obtain Belial's genetic samples. The next season after Taiga reveals that fragmented remnants of Belial's cells are called the Devil Splinters. It's possible Mabuze is gathering Devil Splinters (which isn't mentioned yet at the time) to create these aformentioned monstrosities before Celebro did.
  • Generation Xerox: The relationship between Tregear and Taro can be seen by many as a parallel to Belial and Father of Ultra.
  • In a Single Bound: The first trailer reveals that Taiga inherited his father's acrobatic leap.
  • Jerkass: The Victim of the Week of #3, Imari. He's the president of a company called Cozmo Technica who's entirely self absorbed and doesn't really show any real sense of understanding just how much danger his life is in. It turns out he's also Lethally Stupid as his monumentally idiotic "birthday rocket" that he shot into space collided with a satellite and got two innocent people killed, something he shows no remorse for. He refuses to take orders from E.G.I.S. due to his ego despite having hired them to protect him and when Hiroyuki pulls a Diving Save to keep him from being sucked into the vacuum of space he shoves Hiroyuki for shoving him and nearly gets him killed. He even callously suggests a memorial to the astronauts he killed... on another rocket, proving he'd learned nothing. No one's really crying for him when Souya punches him out for even suggesting that.
  • Mythology Gag
    • The first episode does this to Ultraman Taro's first episode. As a Kaiju from/related to the previous series is killed easily by a brand-new Kaiju to demonstrate its might.
    • Taiga watching previous events like in Ultraman Story
    • Taiga Tri-Strium form has the same colors as the ZAT uniform and the Taiga Blast Attack is based on Ultra Dynamite.
    • To other series
    • In Episode 10 we hava a homage to episode Ultraman Dies at Sunset.
    • In Episode 15 we have return from Skull Gomora.
  • Multiform Balance: Played with. Instead of the title Ultraman having different forms, it's his host that has different Ultramen to choose from. Taiga is the Jack-of-All-Stats, Titas is the Mighty Glacier and Fuma is Fragile Speedster.
  • Raiju: Gorothunder is a Monster of the Week whose motif is based on the Raiju. Its design is inspired by Shinto lightning god and it can summon thunder and lighting.
  • Red Is Heroic: Taiga is the most obvious, Titas also counts.
  • Rookie Red Ranger: Taiga is actually very young and inexperienced in battle but is dedicated in his mission to protect Earth.
  • Shout-Out:
    • In episode 16, when the other members of E.G.I.S. try a Journey to the Center of the Mind via a neural link device in order to save Hiroyuki from the nightmares that affected his bond with Taiga, Pirika shouts "Link Start!" to start the neural link.
    • Episode 23 has twice references of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: first was during Titas and Belial's fights referencing Jojo and Dio's stand cries while Alien Chibull Mabuze's death was proclaiming how his race's science is the best in the universe.
  • Spin-Offspring: The titular Ultraman is the son of Ultraman Taro.
  • Spiritual Successor: To Ultraman Tiga. Apart from their similar-sounding names, they are the first Ultra shows of a new Japanese imperial era (Heisei for Tiga, Reiwa for Taiga), and also breaking the trend of the Ultra Series (multicolored forms and body coloration for Tiga, three Ultras sharing the same human hosts in Taiga).
  • Transformation Trinket: The Taiga Spark brace, which by installing an Ultra Taiga Accessory, allows Hiroyuki to transform into either Taiga, Titas and Fuma. Tregear also has one, called the Tregear Eye.
  • We Used to Be Friends: Tregear is presented as an old friend of Taro before his downfall.

Ultraman Taiga

Ultraman Taiga(ウルトラマンタイガUrutoraman Taiga) is the titular Ultra Hero of the series Ultraman Taigaand is one of the three Ultra Warriorswho merge with Hiroyuki Kudo. He is the son of Ultraman Taro, and debuts along with Ultraman Titasand Ultraman Fumaas the first Ultra Warriors in the Reiwa era. Deep inside, he wishes his father Taro to understand and recognize him, but he cannot admit his true feelings. He has a strong sense of justice and is very enthusiastic. Along with Titas and Fuma, he founded the Tri-Squad. Although he is still young and not skilled, he is dedicated to fighting for peace on Earth. Together with Hiroyuki, he grows to become a true Ultraman.[1]

Conception

Etymology

Just like how his father Taro has a common Japanese name, Taiga does as well. In-universe, "Taiga" on the Land of Light means "A brave one who embraces the Sun". Contrary to what he believes, he is named after the Taiga Spark instead of the other way around.

Personality

Despite being relatively young, Taiga is shown to be very enthusiastic in being an Ultra Warrior and has the expected qualities of one, exhibiting both bravery and kindness. Although he is the youngest and described as the hothead of the Tri-Squad, he is also the leader of the team and cares deeply for his friends.

Being the son of Ultraman Taro, Taiga is almost always only referred to as such instead of himself and thus, he is almost never called by his name by others, except for those close to him such as his friend Filis, which is a source of frustration for Taiga. Other than that, he also has a desire to be acknowledged by his father, which reminds Taro of his youthful self and his relation with his own father, Father of Ultra.

Taiga is not without flaws. He overestimates his ability in combat which could lead to him being impulsive and careless, despite being a highly competent fighter. Taiga also harbors a great hatred towards Tregear for seemingly destroying his friends in the past. This hatred usually makes him lose his temper and become enraged just at the mere sight of Tregear.

Taiga became more reckless during a battle due to the side effect of using the Kaiju Rings, which slowly corrupt his soul. He has since overcome those side effects after his friends saved him from the darkness.

By the end of the series, Taiga accepts himself as Taro's son and can confidently announce that to others, showing that he has overcome his mental complexes as well.

History

Past

Taiga was one of the top cadets in the Inter Galactic Defense Force, long before he ever met Titas and Fuma. He trained on Planet Maijii[2] (惑星マイジーWakusei Maijī), a beautiful planet far away, located between a giant sun and a black hole. During his youth, Taiga used to confide in his friend Filis, who acknowledged him as himself, and not just the son of Taro. He would often visit Filis at work, and learned about Ultraman Mebius and his human friends from the stories that Filis told him.

Conflict Against the Gua Army

During his training, Taiga once had a run-in with the Gua Army general, Imbiza, who summoned Mecha Birdon (メカバードンMeka Bādon) and Modified Brocken (改造ブロッケンKaizō Burokken) to attack him. Taiga had heard of the Gua Army before, from Zoffy. The cyborg Kaiju attacked Taiga, but he was saved by an armored warrior Andro Ares. For Whom Is That Fist For - Part 1

Taiga offered Andro Ares his assistance, but was told to stay back. He watched Ares fight off Alien Iyros, Beacon and Zaragas, finishing them off by himself before going to fight Imbiza. However, a Modified Muruchi (改造ムルチKaizō Muruchi) attacked Taiga and took him hostage. Imbiza used this situation to force Andro Ares to drop his weapons, and blasted him. Enraged, Taiga attacked Modified Muruchi, but was surprised to see Ares return. He shoots Imbiza in the chest, forcing him to retreat temporarily. Taiga wanted to chase after Imbiza, but Ares told him to stay back again. Suddenly, the space around them cracked like glass and started to fall apart. For Whom Is That Fist For - Part 2

Imbiza taunted the two of them before the Monster Battleship Pestria appeared from a dimensional distortion. However, Imbiza's master Gua betrayed him, making Pestria fire its Black Hole Cannon directly at Imbiza, destroying him. Taiga and Ares are attacked by the ship using its lasers and missiles, so Ares decided to expend his energy to destroy it. His attack fails to destroy Pestria, and he is captured. Taiga resolves to rescue Ares, and dived into the monster ship, despite Ares' protests. Taiga fired his Ultra Beam, destroying the spaceship's computer systems before rescuing Ares. Taiga ran out of energy and is returned to Planet Maijii. He and Ares have a conversation, with the latter telling Taiga that he reminds Ares of himself. Ares leaves through a black hole, saying goodbye to the Hero of Light, a name which Taiga took for himself. Taiga went back to the Land of Light to report the situation to Zoffy and his father. For Whom Is That Fist For - Part 3

Other Events

At some point in time, Taiga went off to defend a planet from alien invaders by himself, but was eventually overwhelmed. He was saved by Ultraman Mebius and Ultraman Hikari. Hikari lectured Taiga on his recklessness, and Mebius told him to talk to his father, since he sensed that Taiga was repressing certain feelings of his. After going back to the Land of Light, Taiga told Taro that he wanted to officially become a part of the Inter Galactic Defense Force, but Taro told him that he still had to improve first. Taro entrusted Taiga with the Taiga Spark, advising him to form bonds with others and explore the worlds around him, and told his son to go to Planet U40.

There, he met Ultraman Titas and Ultraman Joneus, who were being invaded by Zett and a new Zetton Army, seeking to fight strong warriors and defeat them all to claim his title as "the strongest life form in the universe". While Joneus fought Zett, he told Titas and Taiga to retrieve the Wise Man's Sword in order to seal Zett away. They individually attempted to do so, but the sword rejected the both of them since the lights in their heart were weak. The two of them decided to pull the sword out of the stone together, and it worked because they were able to combine their powers. Impaling Zett with the sword, they managed to seal him away using the weapon's powers. Taiga invites Titas to go on a journey with him, though he was skeptical at first. However, Joneus managed to convince Titas to go along with him so that he may be able to learn something about his own true potential.

Some time later, they went to Planet O-50. Ultraman Fuma was defending O-50 by himself from the Planet Invasion Union who wanted to destroy the Crusader's Peak to prevent it from creating more Ultra Warriors, but he was almost shot by a sniper. Taiga noticed it and took down the sniper before helping Fuma against the other aliens, who escaped. Due to their hotheadedness, Taiga and Fuma argued when the latter said he could have done all the work by himself. Ultraman Orb then appeared and told Taiga and Titas not to think too badly of Fuma because he is actually a good person. After saving Fuma from aliens yet again, another argument broke out between Taiga and Fuma, and they started fighting. The aliens reappeared, taking the chance to finish them off while they were weakened. Titas lent the both of them some of his energy, and Orb joined the battle against the aliens, managing to defeat them. Fuma was still reluctant to team up with Taiga and Titas of them, until Orb advised him to go. Thus, the Tri-Squad was formed, and the two new members received their own Taiga Sparks as well.

At some time, they went to Planet Dino to fight against a robot army, and were almost sucked into a black hole. The Return of Titas

The Tri-Squad went to a jungle planet to fight against the Alien Gazariya (ガザリヤ星人Gazariya Seijin), who sent their Dinosaur Tamer Dargen (恐竜調教師ダルゲンKyōryū Chōkyōshi Darugen) and his Dinosaur Army. The Tri-Squad's Beginning!

Once, the Tri-Squad visited the Remote Planet Rashuwa (辺境の惑星・ラシュアHenkyō no Wakusei Rashua) after fighting a few monsters together. Seeing the winter-like scenery the planet, along with the people living in peace, Taiga proposed that the Tri-Squad should help them celebrate Christmas, which he learned about from his father. Taiga and Titas took on human forms, but Fuma refused to join in because of his beliefs, stating that he had given up his human form for a reason. Taiga and Titas make presents and were about to deliver them, but were attacked by a hornworm-like Kaiju that emerged from the ground in their imago form. They were hesitant to transform and fight as the presents were likely to be destroyed, but they saved by Fuma. Two more of the Kaiju appeared, and they had no choice but to transform and fight. After the battle was over, they were surprised to see a bright light shining upon them, with a real 'Santa Claus' appearing. By the time they were leaving the planet, the three of them saw lights on the surface forming a giant Christmas tree. The Miracle of Christmas Night

The Tri-Squad left for Planet Chrono (惑星クロノWakusei Kurono) when the Godmes Army was attacking there. They assisted the Koseidon Corps in repelling them. Defeat Godmes

Pre-Ultraman Taiga

Twelve years ago, Taiga and his team, the Tri-Squad, attempted to fight Ultraman Tregear after the other New Generation Heroes had been defeated. As a gift, the New Generation Heroes gave their light to the Tri-Squad, with Taiga receiving the lights of Ultraman Orb, Ultraman Rosso and Ultraman Blu. Taiga, Titas and Fuma ignored Taro's warning not to fight Tregear and attacked him. Despite being able to strike him a few times, their combined strength was not even close to enough to defeat their opponent. Titas and Fuma were reduced to particles, which enraged Taiga. He charged ahead, but soon shared the fate of his comrades, and was turned into particles of light that drifted through space.

Somehow, Taiga's particles descended to Earth. When Hiroyuki Kudo was attacked by an alien while trying to save his pet, Taiga saved the boy and bonded with him as he was falling from the sky, without him finding out until years later.

Ultraman Taiga

Battles on Earth

After twelve years, Hiroyuki worked under EGIS. Taiga helped Hiroyuki out during a mission with Alien Rivers Kawazu, talking to the man through telepathy. After Hellberus attacks Young Mother Zandrias and sets the building Hiroyuki was in ablaze, Taiga emerges, allowing him to transform and fight Hellberus and save both the mother and baby Zandrias. After the battle, Taiga appears before Hiroyuki to talk to him. Buddy Go!

Back at the EGIS base, Taiga explained to Hiroyuki the circumstances of how he came to dwell in Hiroyuki. While dealing with a King Guesra, who happened to be Hiroyuki's old pet Chibisuke, Tregear appeared and toyed with Taiga by beating and mocking him. Taiga and Chibisuke try to fight Tregear, but they are no match for him. Tregear kills Chibisuke, further enraging Taiga and Hiroyuki. Tregear disappeared after Taiga uses his Flame Blaster. Tregear

Taiga, Titas and Fuma are reunited during the battle against Darebolic, and the Tri-Squad continues to protect the Earth along with Hiroyuki and EGIS. Requiem of the Wolves

The Earth And the Sun

Night Fang appeared upon being unsealed by Alien Babarue through Ai Tennoji's latent powers. The monster first bested Fuma and then Taiga before taking off towards the city to begin feeding. To the Demon's Mountain!! As soon as it landed, Night Fang emitted sound waves from its third eye, causing everyone in the vicinity to fall asleep and get trapped in nightmares, which Night Fang fed off of. Luckily, Pirika Asahikawa, who was still awake, woke the city up using noise cancelling devices. Hiroyuki Kudo quickly transformed into Taiga, but was still not a match for Night Fang. Seeing this, Ai Tennoji went to aid Taiga by drawing out whatever remained of the Earth's energy within Night Fang, to summon the sword of light that once sealed it away, and granted it to Taiga. The Taiga Key Holder reacted with it and absorbed its energy, transforming Taiga into his new form, Photon-Earth. With the power of the Earth within him, Taiga trounced Night Fang and destroyed it once and for all with the Aurum Strium.

Watching the battle, Kirisaki changed into Ultraman Tregear to test Taiga's new power, but it was still not enough to even injure him. Tregear left shortly afterwards, expecting nothing less of the son of Taro. Returning back to the form of Kirisaki, he draws a tarot card from a deck he was shuffling earlier, revealing the Fool. Defeat the Demon Photon-Earth's power continued to prove useful against other threats such as Majappa, Alien Nackle Odyssa, and Gymaira.

Taiga's Fall to Darkness

Unbeknownst to Taiga, his soul had been flooded with darkness as a result of using the Kaiju Rings. He started to become more aggressive when fighting his enemies, as seen during his battle against Gigadelos. The Power to Protect and the Power to Fight As Taiga fought against Skull Gomora, he nearly went berserk and demanded that Hiroyuki use the Kaiju Rings. Taiga proceeded to violently maul Skull Gomora, but was shocked at his own actions when the battle was over. Ultraman Tregear then appeared before him once again, and they got into a brief fight.

Still, Taiga wanted more power and forced Hiroyuki to use the Hellberus Ring against his will. Tregear took the chance to release the accumulated darkness within Taiga, gradually turning him into an unresponsive puppet while shutting Hiroyuki, Titas and Fuma out while losing his Taiga Spark in the process. Tregear taunted Taro and claimed Taiga as his partner in the darkness. I Can't Hear Your Voice

After being knocked out by Kirisaki, Hiroyuki sees Taiga in the darkness and tries to bring him back. Tregear suddenly appears and tempts Taiga further down the path of darkness, kicking Hiroyuki out of his soul. In an attempt to find out what was wrong with Hiroyuki, the other members of EGIS used brain wave synchronizing devices to enter his mind. The encouragement from his friends, as well as Titas and Fuma, allowed Hiroyuki to clear the darkness inside Taiga and bring him back to his senses. The Tri-Squad and Hiroyuki were once again reunited.

Having been freed from the dark influence by his friends, the power of bonds between them culminated in a new form for Taiga: Tri-Strium. Using this new power, Taiga easily defeated the two Kaiju Kirisaki summoned; Hellberus and Night Fang. Enraged at the fact that Taiga had overcome the darkness and ruined his plans, Kirisaki transformed into Tregear to fight him. However, Taiga was even stronger now and could fight evenly against Tregear. Taiga drives him away using the Tri-Strium Burst. We Are One

Tregear's Final Plan

Defeated by Taiga, Tregear changes his plans and starts targeting Hiroyuki's friends instead. He launches an attack on Pirika and learns of Woola, and plans to bring it to Earth and allow it to destroy the entire planet. As Taiga fights off more threats such as Gorothunder, Demaaga, Pandon and Giestron, Tregear gets closer to fulfilling his goal and eventually accomplishes it by using the drill missile from Alien Ghose' ship to disrupt the Ether in the Earth, turning the plane into a beacon that attracted Woola's attention. Withstand the Lightning Strike!Sand CastleFriend in EarthWhat's up with Takkong?

Taiga and the Tri-Squad faced off against Imit-Ultraman Belial, but their battle was interrupted by Tregear, who targeted Imit-Belial for getting in the way. The three of them are unable to defeat Imit-Belial until Ultraman Zero arrived, having heard about aliens using Belial's genetic material for evil deeds. Tregear switched sides and as the battle raged on, Taiga started to get exhausted. Zero lent him his power in the form of the Plasma Zero-let, which he used to defeat Imit-Belial. Just before Zero left, he gave some words to encouragement to Hiroyuki and the Tri-Squad. Clash! Ultra Big Match!

As Woola finally arrived on Earth, Kirisaki summoned Galactron MK2 as bait for it to come to the surface. Taiga fought against the robot but was unable to do any significant damage, despite holding his own against the machine. Suddenly, Galactron MK2 was dragged down into the ground, destroyed, and then consumed by Woola, who emerged from underground. Taiga tried to fight it, but he failed, as Woola drained his energy, forcing him to retreat. After Pirika revealed her true nature and disrupted Woola's core, Hiroyuki and the Tri-Squad ran up to the monster to challenge it once more. I'm Pirika However, their efforts proved futile as Taiga was defeated once again.

Pirika, now within Woola's core, sympathized with it. EGIS forms an alliance with Maguma and Markind to save Woola and the planet, relying on Taiga to fire his Strium Blaster at the monster as the final step. However, Tregear interfered and fought against the Tri-Squad, obstructing them and their last window of pulling the plan off. Woola tried to help the Tri-Squad after recognizing them as allies, but easily gets shoved aside by Tregear. Tregear made the mistake of firing a dark energy sphere at Taiga, which he redirects to Woola using the Wide Taiga Shot. Woola ate both attacks and its body is destroyed, while its core floated upwards and dissipated into a glittering light that spread across the Earth, simultaneously redeeming and ending the once world-threatening Kaiju.

"This light...is warm...."
"That would have been impossible only with my own power. It was the power of light from both of us Ultramen that saved that monster's heart. No matter how much you deny it...you are an Ultraman; something that exists to protect the light! Weren't you my father's friend who left the Land of Light? You can become a guardian of light once more!"
"How many times do I have to tell you? This world has neither light nor darkness!
"

―Taiga's attempt at redeeming Tregear

Taiga attempted to convince Tregear to return to the path of light, but he finds those claims rubbish and attacks Taiga, forcing him to fight back. Taiga changed to Tri-Strium, which reminds Tregear of Taro. Taiga, Titas, Fuma and Hiroyuki put their powers together to fire the Quattro Squad Blaster, but Tregear made no attempt to defend himself and laughed maniacally as he is defeated. Buddy, Steady, Go!

Ultraman Taiga The Movie: New Generation Climax

After spending their time on Earth, the Tri-Squad's original bodies were fully repaired, allowing them to separate from Hiroyuki when the time was right. Taiga, Titas and Fuma fought against a Dada's customized Legionoid, after the alien's attempt to steal the Blue Stone of Baradhi was foiled by the EGIS members. Taiga used the Taiga Dynamite Shoot to destroy the robot.

Soon, Hiroyuki transformed into Taiga again when Grimdo landed on the Earth, struggling against it even with Ultraman Rosso and Ultraman Blu with him, though he was saved by the sudden appearance of his father, Ultraman Taro, who used the Ultra Dynamite on Grimdo. Now possessed by Grimdo, Taro defeated the three Ultras, putting Taiga under distress. He is comforted by Hiroyuki and Riku Asakura, who told him that his father is Ultraman Belial and how he struggled to fight him.

On the way to confronting Kirisaki/Tregear, Taiga, Titas and Fuma suddenly appear and inform Hiroyuki that he no longer had to fight, since their bodies were repaired and could separate from him. Hiroyuki retorted by stating that they were a team and had to face their final battle together, touching Taiga's feelings. Taiga, Titas, Fuma and the New Generation Heroes face off against Taro, Tregear, and the monsters he summoned, with the Tri-Squad taking on Tregear before getting interrupted by Taro. The Tri-Squad fuse into Tri-Strium and clashed with Taro head-on with the Ultra Dynamite, attempting to force out Grimdo's darkness from within. Believing in their bonds, they succeeded at driving out Grimdo from Taro's body. Tregear offered himself to Grimdo, allowing it to devour him and reach its perfect form, and cover the Earth with its mass of chaos.

After a futile attempt at fighting Grimdo, even with their greatest powers, the New Generation Heroes fused into Ultraman Reiga via Taiga's Ultra Horns, and managed to defeat Grimdo and Tregear along with it. The Tri-Squad and Taro thank Hiroyuki and EGIS before departing to space. Ultraman Taiga The Movie: New Generation Climax

Ultra Galaxy Fight: The Absolute Conspiracy

TriSquadLoLTAC.png

The Tri-Squad were training on Planet Maijii, due to its optimal gravitational pull for muscle development, when Zett appeared before them. Taiga and Titas recounted their previous encounter with the demon on Planet U40. The alternate version of Zett spawned an army of Zetton to take on the team. Taiga fought against the two normal Zettons, with his Hand Beam being no match for the Kaijus' defenses. With the three warriors struggling, they were aided by Andro Melos and Ultraman Ribut. Together, they managed to defeat the Zetton Army while Taiga went to face Zett, forcing him to retreat after firing the Aurum Strium at him. Receiving a message from Taro, they all went to the Land of Light to regroup, where Ribut briefed the three of them on the situation with Absolute Tartarus. Taro advised the Tri-Squad that they would soon have to help Zero on the front lines to deal with Tartarus, and Taiga went to train with his senior, Mebius. While looking for him, Taiga also met with Ultraman Z. Mebius and Taiga talked about the bond between Ultras, such as Seven, Leo and Zero's master and student relationship and compared it to their own with Taro, while watching Z practice.

Yullian and Ultraman 80 had crash landed on Planet Ebil on the way to a Galactic Federation Peace Conference on Planet Kanon and were soon attacked by Zett and his Zetton army. They sent a distress signal to the Land of Light. Responding to the message, Taiga, Mebius and Z immediately left the Land of Light and arrived on Planet Ebil to assist them. They were later joined by Ultraman Zero, Ultraman Joneus, Ultraman Titas, Ultraman Fuma, Ultrawoman Grigio, Ultraman Ribut and Andro Melos, and they all fought the Zetton army together. After fusing into Tri-Strium, Taiga handled Zett in place of 80 and Mebius, attacking him with a barrage of finishers while being helped by Ultraman Z, who fired the Zestium Beam at Zett just after Taiga had impaled him with the Taiga Blast Attack. In desperation, Zett treid to regenerate his Zetton army once more, but they were promptly finished off by Taiga Tri-Strium's new move, Rainbow Strium Burst.

Soon after defeating Ultimate Shining Zero in Narak, Absolute Tartarus appeared, taking Yullian hostage and informing the heroes of his true motives before getting Belial and Tregear to fire their beams at them all. The group also received word from Ultraman Hikari that Genegarg had stolen a Z Riser and Ultra Medals from the Land of Light, causing Z to fly off in a hurry while Zero followed him. The Ultra League and the Tri-Squad prepare to recruit more heroes for the upcoming fight against The Kingdom. The Appearance

Ultraman Taiga

Japanese television series

Ultraman Taiga (ウルトラマン, Urutoraman Taiga) is a Japanese tokusatsu drama produced by Tsuburaya Productions. It is the 31st entry to the Ultra Series, the first series released in the Reiwa period and the seventh entry to the New Generation Hero (ニュージェネレーションヒーロー, Nyū Jenerēshon Hīrō) lineup.[2][3] It began airing on TV Tokyo on July 6, 2019.[4]

The series's main catchphrases are "The story of the son of "Taro". And "Taiga" is here!" (「タロウ」の息子の物語。そして「タイガ」がここにいる!, Tarō no musuko no monogatari. Soshite Taiga ga koko ni iru!) and "Let's go, buddy! Buddy Go!" (行くぜ相棒!バディゴー!, Iku ze aibō! Badi Gō!).

Synopsis[edit]

Main article: List of Ultraman Taiga characters

12 years prior, Tregear incapacitated the New Generation Heroes after misleading them to a minefield asteroid. Inheriting their powers, the Tri-Squad attempted to continue the battle but it leads to their particles scattered in outer space. Taiga's particle of light merged with a young boy named Hiroyuki to save him from a fall after his Guesra companion "Chibisuke" was kidnapped.

In the present day, Hiroyuki joined a private security organization E.G.I.S. (Enterprise of Guard and Investigation Services) to handle extraterrestrial cases while living in a society mixed with aliens from various point of origin.[5] While handling a Villain Guild-related case, a fully recuperated Taiga awakens and therefore allows Hiroyuki to transform in order to combat giant monsters[2][3][4] as two other Tri-Squad members, Titas and Fuma made their way to Earth and bonded with the former as a shared host. Tregear on the other hand was revealed to have been anticipating the Tri-Squad's arrival and orchestrated several monster and alien attacks for his own twisted enjoyment of tormenting others. In the middle of the series, his true agenda was revealed to corrupt Taiga into an evil Ultraman in order to fulfill his twisted vendetta against the former's father, Taro. Hiroyuki and the Tri-Squad's sheer bond purified Taiga and gave them the ability to fuse into Ultraman Taiga Tri-Strium. Growing desperate for the situation, Tregear initially tries to harass the E.G.I.S. members and eventually summoned the planet-devouring monster Woola to Earth for his final endgame to consume both light and darkness.

As the tension between humans and aliens begin to grow, Pirika's attempt to sacrifice herself in order to eliminate Woola leads to the realization that it was only cursed by its own hunger. Former Villain Guild members Alien Magma and Merkind offer their assistance to neutralize Woola as Taiga fed the monster with his and Tregear's energy, ending the monster's life in a peaceful way. After rejecting his last chance at redemption, Tregear fought against Taiga Tri-Strium and seemingly obliterated by exposing himself to the Quattro Squad Blaster, seeing Taro's image in the young hero in his final moments.
