"My name is Fuma. I arrive with the wind of the galaxy!"
- ―Fuma's introduction, Requiem of the Wolves
Ultraman Fuma (ウルトラマン
Fuma's name is most likely derived off of the real life ninja(s) known as Fūma Kotarō, which fits Ultraman Fuma's ninja theme. Additionally, fitting of his title, his name written in kanji is "風真", the first character of which translates to "wind".
Fuma is the most playful of the Tri-Squad, as he can be seen goading his enemies to attack him only to outrun them with his speed. Much like Taiga, he also gets enraged when he sees Tregear and will not hesitate to attack him, much to his comrades' dismay. He is also prone to arguing with Taiga, and they seem to have a friendly rivalry. Fuma believes people should be able to say what's on their mind, which is why he yells out the names of his attacks. He can also be manipulative, as shown by the fact that he previously made a living by robbing people who were searching for the Warrior's Peak.
Fuma has the tendency to refer to others as "bro" (兄ちゃん Nii-chan), whether they are friend or enemy.
Becoming an Ultraman
Fuma was born to someone who tried to climb the Warrior's Peak, but gave up halfway. For that, he was called a "loser's son" throughout his entire life. However, his father told him that "All living beings are like containers. If you shove too many things into them, they will break. It is a talent to be able to see how much one can contain". Fuma interpreted this as "people who have no talents should just give up".
A long time ago, Fuma met a monstrous four-armed fish-like alien named Gerg, who approached him to ask for directions to the Warrior's Peak. Fuma brought him along, but explained that most people don't make it to the Warrior's Peak due to them killing each other, despite supposedly having the noble intention of becoming a giant of light to fight for peace. Just at the bottom of the mountain, Fuma tricked Gerg into giving him money to "buy climbing gear", but he simply made his way down along with the money, knowing that at some point Gerg would realize that he was being scammed. A group of bandits stopped him in his tracks, but Gerg went to his defense without Fuma knowing, standing up for him when they called him a "loser's son". Gerg then grew to giant size, scaring off the bandits by throwing a shuriken made of energy from his hands. Gerg shrunk back down and encouraged Fuma, saying that he can become more than just a "loser's son".
Inspired by Gerg, Fuma decided to learn from him, and adopted his ninja techniques, as well making as his "peace sign" gesture for the first time. The pair noticed that for previous warriors to have gained the power of light, they all had to have had something in common, which was their accumulated good deeds. They set up a place in the city where they would do jobs for people, hoping that it would be sufficient for them to be chosen by the Ring of Light. After a while, Gerg decided to climb the peak on his own, but never came back. Eventually, the Interstellar Alliance hired Fuma to track down a monster that was killing hikers. They informed him that the son of the Interstellar Alliance's highest ranking officer was one of the people who came in contact with the monster, and ran away as soon as he saw it.
Having a bad feeling, Fuma found his target, Gerg. Gerg took off his protective gear and they began to fight each other, and Fuma finally understood his father's words, thinking to himself that people can find other ways to live. Suddenly, the Interstellar Alliance officers attacked them both to get rid of them, and Fuma was fatally struck, but he was saved by Gerg, who grew into a giant once more. Believing that the Ring of Light would save his life if he were chosen, Gerg brought the dying Fuma up the Warrior's Peak, telling the Ring of Light of Fuma's good nature and accomplishments. Fuma told Gerg he didn't care if they obtained the power, and that they should feel lucky to have lived their own lives. Just then, another blast was fired by an Interstellar Alliance ship. Fuma survived, having been turned into an Ultraman. He stood there alone, thinking about Gerg, who wanted to prove that even a monster can obtain the power of light. Believing his humanoid form to be an unfair reason for him to be chosen over Gerg, Fuma abandoned his previous form and remained as an Ultra for his life.
Wind and Flowers
The Ring of Light had Fuma perform various deeds as an Ultraman. In his travels, he had seen golden birds with blue eyes, fought against gigantic insects, helped white-haired lovers travel across space, and seen amusement park spaceships. After defeating a monster on one of his travels, he met a plant-like alien girl named Ilia, who was supposedly ill, and had never left the house. However, she had a dream of going into space based on the stories that people would tell her. One day, Fuma secretly brought her on a trip to another planet, implied to be Planet Juran. Much to their horror, the small animals around Ilia suddenly died of poisoning. When they returned, they learned the terrible truth from Ilia's father Balt. He told them that their species' natural scents turn into poisonous gas outside their home world's atmosphere. Feeling guilty for what he had done, Fuma left the planet.
A long time passes and Fuma stops counting the number of missions he has completed. By some chance, somewhere in the universe, he found a picture book titled "the Champion of Wind", telling the tale of a blue hero who was as fast as the wind. The book also depicted many things that Fuma talked to Ilia about, and his heart was touched, even though he was unsure whether or not Ilia was the author. From then on, he decided to call himself the Champion of Wind, hoping that Ilia would hear of it one day.
Fuma met Taiga and Titas when they arrived at Planet O-50 to defend the Warrior’s Peak from aliens who wanted to destroy it. Thus, the Tri-Squad was formed. At some time, they went to Planet Dino to fight against a robot army, and were almost sucked into a black hole.
Once, the Tri-Squad visited the Remote Planet Rashuwa (辺境の惑星ラシュワ Henkyō no Wakusei Rashuwa) after fighting a few monsters together. Seeing the winter-like scenery the planet, along with the people living in peace, Taiga proposed that the Tri-Squad should help them celebrate Christmas, which he learned about from his father. Taiga and Titas took on human forms, but Fuma refused to join in because of his beliefs, stating that he had given up his human form for a reason. Taiga and Titas make presents and were about to deliver them, but were attacked by a hornworm-like kaiju that emerged from the ground in their imago form. They were hesitant to transform and fight as the presents were likely to be destroyed, but they saved by Fuma. Two more of the kaiju appeared, and they had no choice but to transform and fight. After the battle was over, they were surprised to see a bright light shining upon them, with a real 'Santa Claus' appearing. By the time they were leaving the planet, the three of them saw lights on the surface forming a giant Christmas tree.
Twelve years ago, Taiga and his team, the Tri-Squad, attempted to fight Ultraman Tregear after the other New Generation Ultras had been defeated. As a gift, the New Generation Ultras gave their light to the Tri-Squad, with Fuma receiving the lights of Ultraman Ginga and Ultraman Victory. Taiga, Titas and Fuma ignored Taro's warning not to fight Tregear and attacked him. Despite being able to strike him a few times, their combined strength was not even close to enough to defeat their opponent. Titas and Fuma were reduced to particles, which enraged Taiga. He charged ahead, but soon shared the fate of his comrades.
Fuma's light was bound to a crystal in a pendant, that had been traded around many times and somehow ended up in the possession of the Villain Guild, but was stolen by Volk. When the Deavorick (MB) was released, the building it was stored in collapsed in an explosion, injuring Volk, who decided to show the pendant over Homare Soya. Fuma's voice unexpectedly speaks to Taiga, and his light flies over to Hiroyuki Kudo, finally reuniting the Tri-Squad. Fuma defeated Deavorick easily but just as he was about to fly away, Tregear showed up to meddle with him, but he eventually left as well.
The Tri-Squad continues to protect the Earth along with Hiroyuki and EGIS.
As a side effect of Taiga using the Kaiju Rings, his soul starts to get flooded with darkness. As a result, some of it is carried over to Hiroyuki, who had been having sudden, violent outbursts. Titas and Fuma notice that Taiga had been getting far more aggressive in his battles. This was actually part of Tregear's plan to turn Taiga to the dark side. Skull Gomora, Tregear took the chance to release the darkness within Taiga, shutting out Hiroyuki, Titas and Fuma in the process. Kirisaki knocks Hiroyuki out using psychic powers. Hiroyuki sees Taiga in the darkness and tries to get him to snap out of it, but Tregear appears and guides him further down the path of darkness, leading him to banish Hiroyuki from inside him.Just after Taiga had fought against
The EGIS members synchronize their brainwaves using devices to reach out to Hiroyuki, who, with the encouragement from his friends, dispels the darkness within himself, while somehow creating the Tri-Squad-let. With Titas and Fuma, they make an attempt to rescue Taiga. Hiroyuki dives into Taiga's Color Timer and clears the darkness inside him. With the Tri-Squad now reunited, Taiga gains a new form, Tri-Strium. With this new power, he defeats Tregear for the first time.
Fuma continued to support the Tri-Squad and EGIS throughout their continuous battles against monster and alien forces. Following Woola's destruction, the Tri-Squad take turns in fighting Tregear as Hiroyuki activated the Quattro Squad Blaster, simultaneously having all members combine their attacks into Tregear and seemingly defeating him when the fallen Ultra rejects a chance of redemption.

- Fuma is the first Ultra who has most of his techniques' names written only in Kanji. He is also the first to have a name that can be written in Kanji. Along with other O-50 Ultras being associated with Kanji words in their motif (Orbcalibur, R/B Crystals), Masayuki Goto said it was done because "it's cool".
- Some of the sounds associated with Fuma's appearances include Orb's "dying" sound and the R/B Slugger's slashing sound effects.
- Fuma finds Grigio cute.
- Fuma's possession of Ginga and Victory bracelets is ironic, since Taiga is the one who uses the powers of Fuma's predecessors from the same planet. However, this is also attributed to the fact that Fuma's title is the "champion of the wind", which parallels Ginga being the "champion of the galaxy" and Victory's name is used to denote someone winning in a competition.
- If Fuma had obtained Photon-Earth's power for himself, he would have named his hypothetical finisher Gold Star Light Wave Shuriken (金星光波手裏剣 Kin Sei Kōha Shuriken).
