The Multiverse (マルチバース Maruchibāsu) is a present theme in the Ultraman Series. It is the setting in which all of the Ultraman Series shows and series take place in. The multiverse is comprised of a near-infinite number of separate universes, or Worlds (ワールド Wārudo), with some having native Ultras of their own in some form.
The multiverse was first implied in the Showa Era with Ultra Q and later, in the Heisei series with Ultraman Tiga. It was first truly confirmed in Ultraseven X and first shown in the movie, Ultraman Zero The Movie: Super Deciding Fight! The Belial Galactic Empire. Since then it has been openly acknowledged and is a part of some plot points. In the Ultra Galaxy Legend Gaiden: Ultraman Zero vs. Darklops Zero, an Alien Salome named Herodia and her henchmen attempted to gain access to the multiverse and conquer it with an army of Imitation Ultra Brothers (SR Team) and Darklops Zero. Kaiser Belial later launched two separate attacks on the Land of Light, from another universe. In Ultraman Saga, it was stated that the Ultramen had moved from not just protecting one universe, but parts of the multiverse. In Ultraman X, many Ultras from different universes visited X's universe either by accident or on purpose, but always with the same goal, to help defend it.

Known Means of Inter-Universal Travel
- Certain powers and/or devices: Devices such as the Ultimate Aegis or Etelgar's ship allow the user to travel to different worlds, usually by creating a portal. Some Ultras such as Ultraman Noa and Ultraman Tregear have abilities that allow them to traverse the multiverse at will.
- Naturally occurring or artificial wormholes: Some wormholes, such as the Stargate in Ultraman Orb THE ORIGIN SAGA or the huge wormhole that sucked in Ultraman Dyna after Gransphire's destruction, can be used to traverse the multiverse.
- Flying beyond the universe's physical borders: Ultraman Zero did so in Ultraman Zero The Movie: Super Deciding Fight! The Belial Galactic Empire, though he had to receive energy from most, if not all the Residents of the Land of Light to do so.
