History

Ultraman Dyna

Sphere first appeared when Training Squad ZERO were having their first outer space training, in which Asuka got the highest score and successfully tagged Kariya and Ryo. The spheres then proceeded to attack the minor auto-pilot station that they were around and were later driven away. However, they gunned down Asuka's GUTS Wing 1 and had Asuka meet the mysterious light while in space.

While the Spheres began to hail an assault on the TPC Mars Base, they fuse themselves with a Mars mineral which formed Darambia and walked through its way to the base until a new Ultra that would later named as Dyna emerge and fought Darambia. Later, the Ultra and Super GUTS forces battle them until a remaining one left, merging into Giralen and make its way to Super GUTS base until the Ultra vanquished it with his Revolium Wave.

The Spheres, however, absent throughout the rest series until they made their return in episode 35 and near the end of the series where they would be responsible for the creation of synthetic beasts such as Gaigareid, Geomos, Graikis, and finally Zelganoid after fusing with TPC's artificial Ultra, Terranoid.

After Zelganoid was destroyed, the Spheres left to join their sister and Gransphere was formed while eating Pluto. Meanwhile, Super GUTS developes a campaign (Battle Against Spheres (BAS) Campaign) and Ryo flys Asuka home after finding him rescued by Daigo Madoka. During the battle at Saturn, the weapon: Neo-Maxima Cannon, was used to destroy Gransphere's most powerful monster: Neo Gaigeried. However, the cannon was not powerful enough to kill Gransphere and Saturn was lost. A final effort was made to kill Gransphere at Mars. After the battle (read the Shin Asuka article for more on the BAS Campaign), Gransphere was destroyed. But her death would bring a wormhole of a gap between dimensions to existence. After Dyna was sucked into it, her victims were released and the another wormhole opened, to the Land of Light.

Ultraman Saga

Sphere in Ultraman Saga

In the sequence of events between Ultraman Dyna and Ultraman Saga, Gransphere was destroyed in the last episode of Dyna. However, several survivor Spheres existed and attack the TPC Mars Base again as they have done in the first episode of Dyna, only to be driven off by Super GUTS. However, during the raid, several were captured by Alien Bat and later fed to the developing Hyper Zetton, Hyper Zetton (Gigant), in a form that is rather gruesome; having Gigant Zetton's spikes penetrate the Spheres completely before draging them in for feeding.

Later in the final battle between Hyper Zetton and Ultraman Saga, the former summoned several Spheres from its body and used them to awaken the modified Kaiju that Alien Bat created. Ultraman Saga
