"(Sperion/Zedcium/Origium) Ray!"

―Special attack announcement (R/B Mode)

The Orb Ring NEO (オーブリングNEOネオ Ōbu Ringu Neo) is Ultraman Orb Dark's transformation device that can also serve as a tool for Ultraman Rosso and Ultraman Blu. It is based off of the Orb Ring used by Gai Kurenai and is transformed from the Orb Origin Crystal when inserted into a Gyro.

History

Ultraman R/B

Makoto Aizen had been recruiting several people, who had the traits of Gai Kurenai, and hooked them up to a special machine to unlock the Orb Origin Crystal. Once he had enough people, he used their "power of bonds" to energize the Orb Origin Crystal, summoning the Orb Ring NEO. He then uses it to transform into Orb Dark.

After his first defeat, Makoto loses the Orb Ring NEO to Katsumi and Isami, who take it for themselves. However, Makoto reclaimed back the device after the brothers were defeated by Horoboros and transformed into Orb Dark once again to clean up his own mess. However, Makoto loses the Orb Ring Neo once again after being defeated by Horoboros, and it floats down to Asahi, who recognizes it. Asahi then gives it to Rosso and Blu while they fight Horoboros.

Functions

The Orb Ring NEO has 2 modes with different purposes. Orb Dark Mode (オーブダークモード Ōbu Dāku Mōdo) is used by Orb Dark while R/B Mode (R/Bルーブモード Rūbu Mōdo) is used by Rosso and Blu.

Trivia

  • Voice actor: Holly Kaneko (Orb Dark Mode)[1]
  • In the early toy catalog, the Orb Ring NEO's modes were formerly branded as Enemy Mode (敵モード Teki Mōdo) (Orb Dark Mode) and Hero Mode (ヒーローモード Hīrō Mōdo) (R/B Mode) respectively.
  • Design wise, the Orb Ring NEO's is similar to the Spark Lens from Ultraman Tiga, in that they are handheld devices that themed after the chest/breastplate of an Ultra Warrior. The Spark Lens and its darker counterpart are two separate devices, which is also the case with Orb Ring NEO instead of being an evolution of Orb Ring.
    • Paralleling to Ultraman Taro's 45th anniversary, it is also a homage to that of Ultra Badge, due to it being a palm-sized item.
  • Just like its original counterpart, the Orb Ring NEO is designed to resemble Ultraman Orb's Color Timer and overall color scheme.
    • The Orb Dark Mode reused several noises from the Dark Ring and a transformation swing that mimics the Orb Slasher. Just like the latter device, the Orb Ring NEO is also infamously compared to a pizza cutter due to its design.
    • Makoto was shown twice summoning the Orb Ring NEO from its crystal, whereas it remains in default mode when the Minato brothers use it.
  • Whenever Makoto or the brothers use the Orb Ring NEO, it is set to the opposite mode before they switch it. In Katsumi's case, he switches it from Orb Dark Mode to R/B Mode, even though the item never reverted into its R/B Crystal form, and from which, when the item is summoned, it is immediately in R/B Mode. The reason for this happening is unknown, though it may simply be for marketing purposes.
