"Ultraman Trigger: (form name)!"

―Transformation announcement

The GUTS Sparklence (GUTSガッツスパークレンス Gattsu Supākurensu) is a dual-purpose item used by GUTS-Select members. While other members on the team use it in its Hyper Gun Mode (ハイパーガンモード Haipā Gan Mōdo) as a ranged weapon, Kengo Manaka can change it to its Sparklence Mode (スパークレンスモード Supākurensu Mōdo) when he needs to transform into Ultraman Trigger.[2][3] When not in use, it is stored in the GUTS Buckle.[4]

History

Ultraman Trigger: New Generation Tiga

After an Ancient Sparklence was discovered in Ultra-Ancient ruins, Mitsukuni Shizuma entrusted Akito Hijiri with reverse-engineering the artifact in preparation for the coming of the one to inherit the light. Akito did so in hopes that the chosen one would be him. They are handed out to GUTS-Select members as a standard-issue firearm.

Eventually, Kengo Manaka was entrusted with one of these devices when on Mars. When he encountered the stone statue of Ultraman Trigger in the upside-down pyramid ruins there, Trigger's light entered a blank Hyper Key and Kengo became one with the ancient giant, using this device to transform.

Trivia

  • As acknowledged by Bandai's commercial, the GUTS Sparklence's Hyper Gun Mode is also based on the GUTS Hyper Gun utilized by GUTS members in Ultraman Tiga. Whereas the GUTS Hyper Gun has the cartridge compartment at the back of the barrel, GUTS Sparklence has the Hyper Keys loaded into the grip akin to a magazine.
