The Circle Arms (サークルアームズ Sākuru Āmuzu) is Ultraman Trigger's signature weapon. It can change its modes to suit his various Type Changes. Its default form is the Multi Sword (マルチソード Maruchi Sōdo), which Trigger uses in in Multi Type. The weapon can change into the Power Claw (パワークロー Pawā Kurō) in Power Type and Sky Arrow (スカイアロー Sukai Arō) in Sky Type, with each mode having different specializations.[1][2] It is also capable of drawing out power from GUTS Hyper Keys for finisher attacks.[3]

History

Pre-Ultraman Trigger

Exactly how the Circle Arms came to being is unknown, but the weapon is first seen in 30 million years prior to the series directly after Ultraman Trigger defected to the light. He and his Type Change copies each wield the weapon in their respective forms, but all three of them were defeated until Yuzare summons the power of Eternity Core to petrify all giants into stone statues. Alongside Trigger, the Circle Arms is also petrified and placed within an upside down pyramid, it being placed on the upper floor while Trigger at the lower floor.

Ultraman Trigger: New Generation Tiga

The weapon was rediscovered in the pyramid ruins on Mars by Reina Manaka and her team of archaeologists in the Sizuma Foundation. Although it initially reacted within Kengo Manaka's presence, it soon restored to its true form when Trigger was reawakened in the present day to face against the threat of Carmeara and Golba.

On Earth, as Trigger gain the ability to Type Change, the weapon follow in suit. For once, the weapon also displayed compatibility with Trigger Dark, who is Ultraman Trigger's past self as a Giant of Darkness splintered into his own separate being. The Circle Arms Multi Sword was used in the dark Ultra's futile attempt to deliver his attack against Carmeara and eventually returned to Trigger upon his defeat.
