Ultraman Wiki

GUTS-Select is a defense team formed by the TPU to fight against monsters. They appear in Ultraman Trigger: New Generation Tiga[1][2] and its sequel series Ultraman Decker.[3][4]


Ultraman Trigger: New Generation Tiga


Mitsukuni Shizuma, the founder of the Sizuma Foundation, had found evidence of a dark power that would return and threaten the Earth. He worked to unite the governments of the world and formed the TPU in response to that. GUTS-Select is a team of experts within the TPU's Japan branch and headquarters, specializing in anti-monster operations. Their engineer, Akito Hijiri, invented all their equipment.[5][6][7][8]

Ultraman Decker

After Trigger's time, the Earth started to regain its peace. The TPU had been shrinking monster defense measures, but was forced to reorganize GUTS-Select when the Spheres attack the Earth.[3][4]
