Hiroya Fujimiya (藤宮博也 Fujimiya Hiroya) is the secondary character in Ultraman Gaia TV series. He's the human host for the power of Ultraman Agul. Later, he appeared as Reiko Yoshi's husband in Great Decisive Battle! The Super 8 Ultra Brothers.
Hiroya was first introduced as an intelligent star student from Alchemy Stars. He started out as a cold, arrogant loner who disliked Gamu, his rival, and Gaia's human host.
Hiroya desired to save the world, but due to the manipulations of the Root of Destruction Entity and the corrupted super computer Crises, he came to believe that mankind was a threat to the Earth, ultimately turning him against them. Despite this he could not truly let go of his humanity, and when the truth was revealed he ended his crusade against humanity.
Although he no longer desired to destroy mankind, he still holds some contempt for them and how they have treated their world.
After the final fight between Gaia and Agul, he holds a respect for him and decided to fight beside Gaia as Agul.
Finding Agul's light
- Main article: Ultraman Agul
Hiroya Fujimiya was a smart young scholar in Alchemy Stars. Working on a project for the organization he developed the supercomputer known as Crisis, to predict the most likely outcome of the Earth's future. The answer shocked him when the computer told him that the world's fate was destruction and its cause: Mankind. Abandoning the project he began several other research projects, one was to control monsters to keep them away from populated areas and the other was to find the 'will of the Earth', to devise a solution for the world's problem. In a room filled with special water tanks, Hiroya encountered a blue light that pulled him giving him the power of Ultraman Agul. As the blue Ultra, he attacks monsters but pays no heed to possible human casualties, in one instance Agul transformed Gaia into anti-matter to fight a monster in a special zone and almost refused to convert him back, possibly leaving him stranded in space.
Soon after his first battle, he learns that Gamu Takayama is Ultraman Gaia and Gamu learns of his identity. Their conflicting beliefs and ideal cause them to clash, once when Agul tried to destroy the aerial base of XIG, and finally when Gamu challenged him to a battle near a coast. Both fights released energy that caused a wormhole, the source of most of the monster and alien attacks, to summon forth a large monster. Gamu later reveals to Hiroya that Crisis was infected by the being that sends the monsters through the wormhole and that its predictions were all lies. Knowing that Hiroya would potentially become Agul, it worked to subvert the guardian of the Earth into its unknowing pawn. Upon hearing this and seeing the evidence Hiroya suffered an emotional collapse and gave Gamu his Light of the Sea, upgrading Gaia to Version 2 and giving him Supreme Version. After that, he disappeared for some time.
"After I'll get the power back, I was thinking about why there is two Ultraman. Now I realize, if one down, there's still have another one."

Later he reappears when Gamu is captured by a robot sent through the wormhole. Pleading to the will of the Earth for the strength to fight for his friend, Hiroya is enveloped by a light from the sea as time seemingly stops and he emerges as Agul Version 2. Saving Gamu, he fights with him to protect the Earth until the entity known as the Root of Destruction attacks the Earth directly. Though they were both temporarily defeated, the two restored their powers and defeated the cosmic monster saving their world. Later, he becomes Reiko Yoshi's husband.

Powers and Weapons
- Intelligence: Hiroya is one of the first members of the Alchemy Stars, a group of young geniuses who created all the technology used by XIG. Fujimiya himself also created systems, to control monsters in order to lure them away from cities, and the computer Crisis before it was infected by Zogu's villainy.
- Agulater: Using a device of his own creation Fujimiya can summon the Agul force to transform into Ultraman Agul.
- Agul Force: Fujimiya used the power from his Agulater to give it to Gamu by transferring it to Esplender. Only shown in episode 26.
- Ultra Powers: Unlike Gamu, who never demonstrated the ability, Fujimiya could manifest the powers of Agul in human form. Usually, this meant powering something with a beam from the Agulater, or superhuman abilities such as speed and strength, such as when he took out the guards of Geo Base.
