She appears not as the silver and red Ultra person, she is most commonly known as, but manifests as a talking star. However, later manga chapters has her appear in her more familiar form, making it unclear for now whether this was her travel sphere, or a retcon as later chapter are more in line with the Television show than the earlier chapters and there are flashbacks of ancient Ultras.
At the start of the series, Mother sent two disguised Ultra Brothers to capture a kaiju hiding as a dog. When the beast went on its rampage, and nearly killed Kotaro and a young boy. They were saved when Mother contacted Kotaro in a limbo state, warning him of the coming age of monsters and transforming the young man into Ultraman Taro.
Later during Taro's final battle with the mutant Ken, she would appear again. With Ken's destruction, Mother would depart Earth with Taro to heal his injuries.
