Salaryman Zero (サラリーマンゼロ Sararīman Zero) is the third episode of Ultraman Geed.
Ultraman Geed runs into trouble when he is unable to defeat the mechanical menace, Darklops Zero. Help arrives in the form of Ultraman Zero, but is he willing to see the son of his arch-enemy Belial as an ally.
Ultraman Zero reaches Earth with the last amount of power of the ruined Ultimate Bracelet before it finally failed. In Kogawa, Geed fought against a bronze mechanical giant before Zero appears and assisted him. Seeing Geed's similarity to Belial, Zero tries to approach him but failed when the latter untransformed from exhaustion. At the same time, a salaryman witness a boy about to be crushed from incoming debris. He tries to dash in but slipped into an accident by a banana peel.
RE.M. identifies Zero and his robotic doppelganger Darklops Zero to Riku as he believed that the former's arrival is to confront him for being Belial's son. At the hospital, Zero bonded with/revived the salaryman as he quickly realises he is too late. Having being yelled at a work, Zero introduced himself once more and saved the man again from thugs by taking over his body. Pega found on the internet that a strange boy (which the salaryman failed to save) emits an energy barrier and thus hinted to be the work of a Little Star.
Being approached by a man who congratulated his work, Kei hints that he is reuniting with a person he dislike and detected a nearby Little Star. While Riku and Laiha rush towards the boy named Toru Honda while he was testing his newfound power, Zero told the salaryman of the Crisis Impact: a long time ago, the Earth and entire universe were almost destroyed until Ultraman King merged with it, rendering him unresponsive to the other Ultras. At the same time, the Ultra Capsules were stolen and Zero went all the way to Earth to trace the perpetrator. Kei unleashed Darklops Zero to the city and Riku transforms into Geed to fight him despite what happened from their earlier conflict. Trying to lure Zero into the battle, Kei summons two other Darklops Zero and all three of them proceed to overpower Geed.
Zero was forced to back down due to his injuries and wanted to see more of Geed's progress. Despite the dangers ahead, Toru still proceed to cheer on for Geed, allowing his Little Star to be harvested by Riku into Seven Capsule. With the Leo Capsule, Riku proceed to transform into Geed Solid Burning. Unlike before, Solid Burning's power allowed him to turn the tables and defeated all three Darklops. With the battle ended, Kei simply smiles as four Capsules left to be uncovered.
The next day, Riku met with Toru at a Gashapon machine while the salaryman watches in confusion when the thugs from before running in fear of his presence.
