Battle Against Radical Destruction Bringer Part 1
"Ultraman! The Earth is in danger! I need to be like you! I need your power! Please, give it to me!"
- ―Gamu Takayama to Ultraman Gaia, Seize the Light!
During one of the virtual reality experiments (performed with the secret purpose of discovering the will of the Earth), science protege Gamu Takayama briefly encountered the mysterious glowing red giant, Ultraman Gaia, at the end of a tunnel of light.
When the Radical Destruction Bringer commenced its first wave of attacks on Earth with the C.O.V., XIG was too new to be effective. Frustrated on how to stop the monster, time stopped and Gamu fell through another light tunnel, where he encountered Gaia again. Because Gamu was so passionately concerned with the fate of Earth and humanity, Gaia accepted Gamu’s will and gave him the Light. Thus, Gamu transformed into Ultraman Gaia and fought and defeated the monster.
From then on, more Radical Destruction Bringer-generated monsters were sent to Earth. Adding to the matter, Earth-based monsters were mysteriously awoken. Gamu joined XIG as an analyzer, and later created the Esplender to store the Light that was the essence of Gaia.
While on a mission, Gamu had an unexpected reunion with the mysterious Hiroya Fujimiya, the foreboding youth who possessed the Light of Ultraman Agul. Fujimiya was responsible for developing the CRISIS computer array and its dire predictions, whom after many recalculations, learned that the only way to save the Earth from Radical Destruction Bringer was to eliminate humans from the equation. He left the Alchemy Stars in pursue of his own research, only accompanied by Professor Kyoko Inamori. During his attempt to find the will of the Earth, he discovered Agul.
Agul and Gaia both fought against the Radical Destruction Bringer and occasionally helped each other out, although Agul made it clear their alliances were based on his duty for the Earth and his own ambitions, not out of friendship or gratitude. Fujimiya grew more agitated and reckless, and had less and less regard for his fellow humans in his desperate mission to save the Earth. He pushed himself to the point of endangering his own health, and became feverish and irresponsible. After involving himself in a bar fight, he declared that humans must be purged from the Earth.
Gaia and Agul had a major clash and both were badly wounded. Incredible energy was released during the fight, which generated a giant wormhole. An immense serpent named Zoruim partially emerged to invade Earth. It turned out that Zoruim was anticipating this clash, and was able to influence CRISIS's computations. Gamu explained to Fujimiya that Crisis was sabotaged all along, and its analysis was fundamentally flawed. Fujimiya realized everything he believed in was based on this flaw, and became dejected, losing faith in himself. He gave Gamu the Light of Agul so that he could use it to defeat Zoruim. Fujimiya left the scene, seemingly killed by a blast from Zoruim.
To ensure his sacrifice wasn't in vain, Gamu accepted Agul's Light into his Esplender, and afterwards transformed into a new and improved Ultraman Gaia: Gaia V2. Gaia headed for Zoruim and attacked it with the Quantum Stream, but it did little than annoy him. Gaia switched into his new Supreme Version and went into Zoruim through its mouth, and used the Photon Stream to destroy the monster from the inside. The wormhole closed shortly afterwards.
The Crisis Ghost Virus infected GUARD Europe and the Aerial Base’s computer. GUARD Europe was forced to shutdown their computer, and the Aerial Base was nearly taken down. Although Atsuko and Georgie's joined efforts seemingly destroyed the virus, the Crisis Ghost escaped to Geo Base, where it invaded the storage containing the fragments of Apatee and Algyuros. After melding the pieces together, it morphed into Fake Ultraman Gaia. However, it misjudged Ultraman Gaia's power, and its imitation form was quickly revealed to its true face: Meemos, a combination of Apatee and Algyuros from the past. Gaia quickly engaged in combat, but soon Meemos gained the upper hand with its new weapons. Meemos pinned Gaia with a fork while its four active boomerangs lashed his hands and feet. Thanks to XIG's air support, Gaia was soon freed and transformed into Supreme Version. Turning the tide, Gaia used the Photon Stream to defeat Meemos.
Ultraman Tiga, Ultraman Dyna, & Ultraman Gaia: The Decisive Battle in Hyperspace
In a world where ultramen and kaiju were fictional, a young boy named Tsutomu was failing school due to his addiction to Ultraman Gaia. One night, while watching an episode of Gaia, he was brought to a hyperspace where he saw a girl. Behind the girl was a scene of mass destruction. The next day, a transfer student strongly resembling the girl, named Lisa, was introduced to his class. Later on, he found a mysterious glowing red ball that told him it could make any wish come true. The one thing Tsutomu wanted more than anything else was to meet Gamu Takayama, who was also Ultraman Gaia. His wish came true and Gamu appeared in his world, but a bully took the ball and made his own wish; for a kaiju, Satanbizor, to fight Gaia.
Gamu instructed PAL to land the Fighter EX on a safe location, then transformed into Ultraman Gaia. He was quick to realize that he was losing energy faster than usual, but managed to defeat the kaiju regardless. Afterwards, reverting back to Gamu, he was chased by children who were a fan of him. He managed to elude them by hiding in a toy shop. Inside, Gamu was fascinated to see toys and merchandise of various ultraman shows (and surprised the shop owner). Tsutomu and his friends found Gamu and explained how he was brought to their world. Tsutomu suggested hiding Gamu and his Fighter EX in his secret base, an abandoned hanger. During his stay, Gamu noticed that Tsutomu had a present for Lisa. It was a book called "Gulliver's Travels", which was a favorite of Gamu's as a child. While Gamu was scanning the red ball for answers, the local police had the hangar surrounded after trailing his aircraft. Gamu attempted to persuade them but was met with clashes. Suddenly, he vanished into thin air and found himself back in his own world, along with Tsutomu's story book. He was soon able to recall the events and checked the data he scanned from the ball, and received a vision telling him that Tsutomu's world would soon be destroyed.
Unfortunately, during the confusion, Tsutomu lost the ball and was recovered by the bully and his companions. The bullies wished for the existence of the strongest monster. This wish created the King of Mons, who immediately started destroying their neighborhood. Meanwhile, Gamu became determined to save Tsutomu's world. He soon found his way there with the aid of an experimental container mecha, the Adventure. The Adventure did little damage on the King of Mons and was destroyed. Gamu then transformed into Gaia to battle the giant kaiju. The King of Mons spawned two more kaiju; Bajiris and Scylla. Tsutomu, seeing Gaia struggling in battle, wished for help only to be thrown into the air by one of the kaiju's stray beams. Just as all seemed lost he was rescued by Ultraman Tiga and Ultraman Dyna, who had appeared after his wishing. The three giants battled the kaiju. Tiga and Dyna defeated the King of Mons' spawns while Gaia, now in Supreme Version, managed to obliterate the King of Mons with his Photon Stream. Later, Gamu revealed Lisa's secret to Tsutomu: she was the human-interface of the red ball. Although Lisa would disappear forever, she urged Tsutomu to wish for the ball to vanish forever, repairing all of the damage that had been caused by it to the world. Before leaving for his world, Gamu returned the story book to Tsutomu and thanked it for allowing him to meet Tsutomu again.
Tiga, Dyna, and Ultraman Gaia Novel: The Adventure in Hyperspace
Battle Against Radical Destruction Bringer Part 2
Agul eventually returned, and he and Gaia set their differences aside to fight the common enemy. When Gamu's life was threatened by the robotic monster Σ-Zuigul, Fujimiya pleaded the Earth itself to let him fight one more time. The Earth accepted him and once again granted him the power of Agul, as Agul Version 2.
Later in the series, GUARD became more proactive in defending Earth. They tried to eliminate the dormant monster Tigris by sending a ground-penetrating nuclear bomb into the ground, a plan that backfired horribly. In another attempt, they created an artificial wormhole to send a planet-killer missile to the home planet of the monsters C.O.V. and Pazuzu, also suffering from disastrous consequences.
The Radical Destruction Bringer took this opportunity to send in enhanced versions of the C.O.V. and a Pazuzu through the wormhole. What became evident to Gamu was that monsters like Tigris, Mizunoeno Dragon, Syazac, and Izac were inhabitants of the Earth like humans were, and perhaps it was not fair to eradicate them when their only instinct was to survive. As for the creatures sent by the Radical Destruction Bringer, they were not inherently evil. When they were sent to Earth their first instinct was simply to survive in an alien environment. Thus, Gamu/Gaia confronted his morals and human motives. Gaia and Agul finally joined forces to defeat the monsters.
Blitz Blots, a black and white avian monster who had the ability to absorb and fire back energy attacks with the its chest, systematically destroyed GUARD's bases, and almost defeated Agul V2 in the process. Tigris II emerged to fight Blitz-Blots and with the combined forces of GUARD and Gaia, defeated Blitz Blots.
The Radical Destruction Bringer commenced their final stages of assault on Earth by deploying the Shinigami and his Mokian. Inside Mokian was a monopole, a theoretical object that had enough magnetic power to pull apart the Earth's crust and end civilization. It was revealed by the Shinigami that the Radical Destruction Bringer considered humans as a threat to the entire universe and must be eradicated. XIG launched an all-out attack on Mokian but to no avail. When Commander Ishimuro was about to ram the now-evacuated Aerial Base into the monster, Gamu transformed into Gaia and tried to destroy it. Gaia inflicted moderate damage on Mokian, but was restrained and tortured by it. To destroy Mokian and save Gaia, the Commander rammed the Aerial Base as originally planned. The Commander was rescued by Gaia at the very last moment before the Aerial Base exploded along with Mokian.
Shinigami then wrecked havoc on the cities in the form of Zebub. Agul arrived to fight him, but he ended up getting his leg pierced with Zebub's spear. Gaia (after Gamu had revealed his identity to XIG) soon came in to heal Agul and let him retreat. After a brutal fight Zebub was defeated.
Final Battle Against Zogu
The Radical Destruction Bringer sets into motion its ultimate plan, sending one of its most powerful agents: Zogu, a giant, white angel. She kills the Kaiser Dobishis that the Ultramen are fighting, and replenishes Gaia and Agul's power, only to completely overpower the two and make their Life Gauges expire. The two Ultramen turn back into Gamu and Fujimiya, which is telecast by the two KCB cameramen, despite Reiko's protests to turn off the camera. The battle is broadcasted across the entire world. They survive, but can no longer transform into Gaia and Agul.
At this point, all of Earth's monsters start emerging again all around the world to protect Earth from the Dobishis and Kizer Dobishis.
Everyone is brought back and united to participate together in the final battle against Zogu. Gaia, Agul, XIG, the Earth monsters, the Alchemy Stars, the KCB TV crew, and even Gamu's parents show up to encourage him. Gamu hatches a final scheme, in which the Alchemy Stars network is used to assist the last of the XIG fighters (some are flying normal military planes that have been modified by the Alchemy Stars) to channel energy from the Earth monsters to give Gamu and Fujimiya the ability to transform back into Gaia and Agul.
Boosted with this huge supply of energy, Gaia and Agul wipe the Earth clean of the hordes of Dobishi. However, as Gaia finishes off the Dobishi, Zogu reappears. She strikes down Gaia and Agul, but they fiercely counterattack. After being briefly staggered by the counterattack, Zogu morphs from her angel form into a colossal demon-like monster.
Gaia and Agul then worked together as a team and they destroy Zogu with their strongest attack, formed by combining their energy beams. Zogu is vanquished and people come out into the open to cheers for their heroes.
Ultraman Gaia: Once Again Gaia
Having lost the ability to transform into Gaia and Agul after their battles against Zogu, Gamu and Fujimiya returned to their normal lives. Shortly after, the underwater civilization sought for humanity's help. They restored Gaia's Light to Gamu, allowing him to become Gaia again to battle the remnants of the Radical Destruction Bringer, Gakuzom. He was joined by Fujimiya, who had also regained his powers from the same source. After the battle, Gamu and Fujimiya parted ways as they continued living their normal lives.
Great Decisive Battle! The Super 8 Ultra Brothers
- Main article: Ultraman Gaia (Superior Universe)
Ultraman Gaia appears as an alternate universe version of himself in this movie.
Prior to the Ultraman Ginga series, Ultraman Gaia participated in the Dark Spark War but this time he fought not only alongside with the Ultraman Agul but, with the other Ultras and their allies against the evil side. In the war, Ultraman faced Zetton while in their midst battle, Dark Lugiel appeared and turned every Ultra alongside their allies, monsters and aliens into Spark Dolls with Gamu still as his human host. Just as the war was about to end, an unknown warrior appeared and faced Dark Lugiel but like the others he was also turned into a Spark Doll but he was kept within his Spark Device and fell alongside the other Spark Dolls to Earth.
After Ginga defeated Lugiel, Gaia is presumed to have returned to his original form and returned home in the form of a ball of light along with Agul and the other Spark Dolls.
