Changes to actor pages

Hello, I've proposed some changes to actor pages that you can see in this example sandbox and was wondering what everyone thinks before I implement anything. At the bottom of that sandbox page are some extra notes, but here's a basic summary:

  • The roles section will list roles in tables.
  • The roles section will be split into four areas, "Main Stuff", which includes TV series, movies, side stories, voice dramas etc., stage show roles, video game roles and stock grunts, all of which are Tsuburaya Productions works.
  • Social media links and agency profile links will be in the External Links section. The website field in the infobox will be reserved for an official website if it exists.

While I'm making these changes, there's something else we could d…

The Concept History of the Plasma Spark

Sorry to disappoint those who cannot read, but this is not a history of the Plasma Spark in-canon. Instead I'm talking about the concept of the Plasma Spark in the real world history of the franchise as I can surmise thus far. As this is clearly based on my ow experience thus far with the Ultra series and frankly....I'm no historian...if you see something incorrect or know something I don't tell me in the comments for everyone else to see.

As far as I know the earliest mention of what we would come to understand as the Plasma Spark was the 1970's manga by Mamoru Uchiyama, that would be translated to English in 1995 as 'Battle of the Ultra Brothers.' In the translated version the device is described as/called the Plasma Nuclear Fusion System…

Location Pages

I was debating making pages for locations in the series, like, Okutama, it's where Gomess, Mummy Man, Dodongo and King Jaigras all emerged from, but we don't got a page for it. Also, I'd like to know if it'd be OK to do that, since I don't want to like, spam the wiki with location things.

Who or what is Absolute Tartarus

As shown in the Absolute Conspiracy, Absolute Tartarus is a powerful being, capable of manipulating space-time to his very will. But a question in my head is Who just is Absolute Tartarus.

It is confirmed The Absolute Conspiracy takes place before the events of Ultraman Mebius (series), due to Alien Empera being alive. This would mean before the events of Ultraman Ginga. But why did I mention Ginga? I feel that Absolute Tartarus IS Ultraman Ginga (character), albeit before the split with Dark Lugiel. We have not seen Ginga yet in the whole series, nor Lugiel. We also have no idea what Ginga used to look like. So Tartarus has a chance to be Ginga.

From the words of Matpat: "But hey, that's just a theory, a Film Theory!"

How Good Ultras go Bad

Sol here, for probably the first Blog of this year of our Lord, 2021. Right now I'm going to be talking about something that's been on my mind for a while, why certain Ultras fell to darkness. Despite not falling to evil, I'll also be talking about Zero, since his original arc mirrored Belial's fall in a way.

Now I ask for patience as I attempt to play Psychologist, with fictional characters. Also, everything below is more or less theory unless Tsuburaya decides to come and say everything is corrrect. That said, i've noticed a theme among fallen Ultras as to why they turned to darkness, Self Worth.

Kaiju and Youkai

I was originally going to do this for Christmas but decided to push it back a few days. I didn't forget it I swear.

In this blog I want to talk about the cultural, religious inspirations for Kaiju., specifically Ultra Kaiju. See there are things I've noticed from the Ultra Series, and maybe a lot of what comes next is nonsense from someone who loves theories, but I've noticed it all the same.

If you've read my last Blog about Tiga, you will know that Kaiju are, for the most part, creature associated with the theme of darkness, in opposition to the umbrella theme of Ultraman's 'Light', or 'Bright Future'. Yet I feel it's a bit more than that. To make sense, I have to ask, what do you know about Youkai?

The Theme of Ultraman, or Why Tiga is the Most Important Modern Ultra

Note, before I get any haters...when I say Tiga is the most important modern Ultra, I do not mean he is the strongest, or that other Ultras don't matter. Take you fanboyism and...go away. For you sane folk let's begin.

Here's a question you don't need to answer, what is the overall theme of Ultraman? No, not theme song, I got hit by that joke alteady. No theme, like good vs evil, sacrifice, responsbility. Don't say light versus darkness because red versus blue is an almost as common theme in the series that dates back to the first episode of Ultraman.

I asked this question and the answers I got were:

  • stronger together
  • not judging those who are different
  • trying to find peaceful solutions unless there are not other options.
  • Hope

These are all wrong…

I legit don't understand why Emerald is so against having Gigass listed as an 'Also Known As' in the description. It doesn't change the creature's official name. Is it so wrong? We have Jirass as an also known. We have Bemlar as an also known as. But no. He blocks me from the page before I can provide evidence. 

We also have over 10 years of media listing him as Gigass before his re-appearance in Ultraman Z. And even his concept art is labeled 'GIGAS' in Japanese books. We also have 'Priz-Ma' in the damn Prizuma page. But god forbid we put Gigass in a page ONCE. Not like it changed anything.

Should we drop the AKAs from the other Kaiju and Aliens?

Ultraman Taiga's Possible Theme: The Struggle Between Hope and Despair

After watching the whole episodes of Ultraman Taiga, I found the show was clearly never meant for Faint of Heart not just because of what kind of person Ultraman Tregear is, but also death counts and angst moments that may too much for children to handle that parental guidance may be advised at best. It's true Ultra series has a fair amount of dark and depressing but, for me this one stood out most cuz the conflict centered more about hope and despair instead of usual light and darkness.

Although it was stated that his name became associated with disasters and temptation in seven universes in the franchise, Tregear's actions in Ultraman Taiga showed that the fallen Ultra leaned more to some sort of despair and loneliness incarnate. He was suc…

Snow White and the Seven Ultra Heroes

This idea of the non-existing story/movie, either animated, cgi or live-action, was what I was hoping and wishing for Tsuburaya and Bandai and others related to Tsuburaya and Bandai to notice this idea . It's about a Snow White character named Snowy and seven ultra heroes - Ultraman, Seven, Jack, Ace, Taro, Leo and 80. They're playing the role of the seven dwarfs, Snow White's guardians.

The story began with a queen died giving birth to Snowy. Her father, the king, married a queen, unknowing she's secretly selfish, wicked and tyrannical. In private, the wicked queen asked the spiritual face in the mirror who's the most beautiful/fairest of all. If there's any females who's the answer for that question, she'll threaten to make them ugly or h…

Ultraman Z or Ultraman Zett: A Community Poll

Greetings Ultra Fan, and general users of the community. I'm making this post today to deal with a problem. In the upper echelons of the Wiki's community and management, there is an impasse. We have found ourselves at each other's throat over this topic, and I've since decided that it's best, if the entire community chooses, since we cannot break this stalemate ourselves. The question is thus: should we name the character page Ultraman Z or Ultraman Zett?

The basis of this debate is a debate of intent, what did the writers, the creators actually intend as the pronunciation and spelling of the character's name. For this reason the divide has resulted in two camps; Z or Zett.

Welcome to Villains in Review, the blog series were I rant about villain in the franchise. A few things first. Outside material does not matter. I'm not judging these villains based on some extra piece of information added in a magazine, or novel to expand them. This is about how they were presented to us in the TV Series and movies. Secondly, if you cannot separate your opinion from your tastes, or just simply downright cannot tell the difference, you're a fanboy and your opinion is trivial. If you like a character is dislike, or vice versa, I have no problem with that or you. However, if you assume that's ground for a flame war, go suck on a...hose, and stop bothering everyone else.

Ultraman Nexus Bio Tech Theory

There's so much we as Western Fans don't get to see about the series, or know because that information is not accessible to most of us. This theory is based on findings and noticing certain...similarities between the Visitors, Zagi, and even the Space Beasts and certainly ties into a certain theme in Nexus that connects it with Cosmic Horror.

Ultraman Belial vs Tregear

So Taiga has been out for a while and even before then there has been...a split among the fandom, a civil war of sorts over who is the better evil Ultra from the Land of Light. In one corner the Ultra who was once Father of Ultra's friend, who nearly destroyed the planet three times, conquered a majority of another universe, and started a war that enveloped another, and was stepped only by the intervention King an Ultra with godly powers. In the other corner, is an Ultra who has sowed chaos and misery across the multiverse, corrupting forces of good, granting wishes in a monkey's paw like fashion and got beaten off by a bunch of kids with Ultra powers.

Okay I joke, Tregear hasn't been around as long as Belial, so of course he doesn't have a…

Excessive .gifs

The regular editors on this site have come to a consensus that there are too many .gif files, being used too liberally. This causes at least two major problems:

  1. It makes the page heavier: .gifs are considered "large" files, they can go up to 10MB in size contrasted to that of .png or .jpg images, which are typically less than 1 MB. This causes the page to take longer to load. Also, it takes up a lot of data for those browsing on data plans.
  2. .gifs can freeze: We don't know why this happens. Large gifs approaching the maximum 10MB size can randomly and unexpectedly freeze on their first frame; this problem is on Wikia/FANDOM's side and we can do nothing about it, neither can we detect when they freeze. We also don't know if/when this glitch wi…
