The Ultlive (ウルトライブ UrutoRaibu) process is an ability which Hikaru Raido, Prince Sho and Daichi Oozora primarily use to call and transform into Ultraman Ginga, Ultraman Victory and Ultraman X using the Ginga Spark, Victory Lancer and X Devizer respectively.
The diabolical Dark Lugiel somehow transformed all kaijus and Ultramen in the greater Ultra Multiverse into Spark Dolls. The powerful Ultraman Ginga gives the Ginga Spark to a young man, named Hikaru Raido, so that he can use his Ginga Spark using the Ultlive power to bring the Ultramen and Kaiju back to their regular forms.
This mysterious ability makes his host able to turn the transformed kaiju and Ultras to their regular forms. It also grants the ability to use the powers of said monster or Ultra either as a puppet or by transforming into the entity themselves.
Hikaru Raido and his friends can perform Ultlive when their courageous intentions resonate with the Ginga Spark. Unlike Hikaru who already has the Ginga Spark, his friends can only use this process when a Ginga Light Spark is granted to them.
Prince Sho's Victory Lancer also has this function variation, but it is still unrevealed if he can Ultlive into others aside from Ultraman Victory.
For reasons that were not revealed in the series, Hikaru and Misuzu had failed to Ultlive Ultraman Taro before. But Taro was eventually Lived back to his original form when he absorbed the collective courageous intentions from the Ginga Light Sparks of the people around Hikaru's school.
Dark Lugiel and his minions can perform a similar process called Darklive. Similar to Ultlive, it needs to connect with the hosts' intents, although Darklive needs malicious intents instead of courageous ones.
Ultramen called on using this process transform to their respective Darks. Dark Ultras do not appear to have a time-limit, since they aren't beings of light in this form.
An anomaly of the Darklive process can occur when a user of a Dark Dummy Spark has neither courageous nor malicious intents, as shown with Tomoya Ichijouji. In this state, Tomoya was able to use his Dummy Spark without succumbing to its harmful effects and maintain his own will. This anomaly also caused Jean-Nine's consciousness to return and the creation of the Gunpad, which Tomoya used to control the robot warrior instead of the Dummy Spark.
First seen in the Ultraman Ginga S series, Alien Chibull Exceller and his minions can perform Monslive (モンスライブ Monsuraibu), a process derived from the Darklive process, and possibly from the Reionics Battle Nizer's MonsLoad function. Exceller's minions can use a copy of this power via the Chibull Spark. Exceller's own variant however can be used without a Chibull Spark or any other device, whether he himself is his own Chibull Spark, or a modified device is implanted within him is unrevealed. Although it was based on the Darklive process, it can be used even without a malicious intent.

In its Gun Form, the Victory Lancer can use an alternative Ultlive. Instead of summoning or transforming into the Spark Doll monster, the Victory Lancer can "Load" the Spark Doll's powers into its projectiles. When Sho uses this, the Victory Lancer says "Ultlive, Go! <kaiju's name>". So far, Sho has only shown to have fired EX Red King's, Gudon's, and King Joe Custom's Spark Dolls using this method.
In the world of Ultraman X, where Spark Dolls are treated as OOPArts, Ultraman X is the only one that was shown performing the Ultlive transformation. However, as this process is only used by him, the X Devizer only recognizes it as "Unite" (ユナイト Yunaito).
Other Notable Ultlive Functions
Fusion and Super Fusion
Fusion (合体 gattai) and Super Fusion (超合体 chō gattai) are Ultlive variations which fuses a number of Spark Dolls to summon a more powerful Kaiju. So far in the series, the only devices shown to have used these functions are the Dark Dummy Spark and the Chibull Spark in summoning Tyrant and Five King respectively.
Switch is an Ultlive function that is more elaborately observed in Seiichiro Isurugi's use of the Ultraman and Ultraseven Spark Dolls. The user simply needs to "Live" another Spark Doll to switch into it. This function is seen used by Hikaru Raido, Seiichiro Isurugi, and Vorst.
