"Don't worry. Planet Andro, my birthplace, is situated at the other side of that black hole. My friends are over there. Just like you, I will join forces with them to defeat Gua."

―Andro Ares to Ultraman Taiga.

Andro Ares (アンドロアレス Andoro Aresu) is an Andro Super Warrior who first appeared in the Ultraman Taiga spin-off, Tri-Squad VoiceDrama.

Conception

Etymology

His name "Ares" refers to the god of war in the Greek mythology. In addition, Ares' counterpart in the Roman mythology, is Mars, who is also the namesake of Andro Mars.

Personality

Although an excellent Andro Super Warrior, Ares is a cocky person who remains confident in his own abilities and underestimates others, be it his opponents or his own allies such as Taiga during his time as an Inter Galactic Defense Force cadet. Despite this, Ares also values his missions and duties given by Andro Melos, as he is well aware that his failure in protecting Taiga would discredit him in front of his superior. The incident with Imbiza and Pestria taught him of humility, as he apologized to Taiga for his earlier insults and eventually becoming a starting point for their friendship.

History

Tri-Squad VoiceDrama

Ares was recruited into the Andro Defense Force at some unknown point of time and was groomed by Andro Melos to be the new leader of their team, as he was about to leave to join the Galaxy Rescue Force upon Queen Izana's invitation.

After trailing the Gua Army's Battle Captain Imbiza to Planet Maijii, he saved Ultraman Taiga from Mecha Birdon and Re-Brocken. 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 Zabiden, Dakumiran, Bazelia, Re-Alien Iyros, Re-Beacon and Re-Zaragas, finishing them off by himself before going to fight Imbiza.

However, Re-Muruchi attacked Taiga and took him hostage. Imbiza used this situation to force Andro Ares to drop his weapons, and blasted him. Enraged, Taiga killed Re-Muruchi, but was surprised to see Ares return. He incinerated Imbiza's right arm and shoulder, forcing the Battle Captain 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 fires his Ultra Beam, destroying the spaceship's computer systems before rescuing Ares. Taiga ran out of energy and was returned to Planet Maiji. He and Ares have a conversation, with the latter apologizing for his earlier arrogance and promising to reunite with Taiga once the fight with Gua Army has ended. Ares left through a black hole to continue his mission, 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

  • When performing the Strike Burst, Ares' eyes shine from his Cosmo Tector's visor. This is a reference to the magazine releases of Ultra Brothers Story: Andro Melos magazines, wherein the Andro Super Warriors had visible yellow oval eyes plastered on their visors before they were removed in the Andro Melos series and rendered as red-tinted beneath said visors.
