"Yes: we should not depend upon others, but to trust ourselves, out potential power."
"Correct, this is the very power to keep peace.

―Joneus and Hikari regards to why they keep their secret till the very end, To The Ultra Star! Conclusion: Towards Peace and Victory

Ultraman Joneus (ウルトラマンジョーニアス Urutoraman Jōniasu) is the main Ultra featured in The☆Ultraman. Unlike the majority of other Showa Ultras, he hails from Planet U40.



A being from the Planet U40, Joneus was the strongest of the Great Eight, eight of the strongest warriors on his planet and wears the Star Symbol as his proof of the Great Eight. Joneus was assigned to Planet Earth long before the start of the series and witnessed the bravery of Choichiro Hikari defending his space station from a single Goglan trying to eat the station's wires despite his declining oxygen level. Combined with Hikari's selfless act of keeping it a secret, this convinced Joneus to mark the youth as his potential human host.


Ultraman Joneus in The☆Ultraman

Joneus merged with Hikari during the youth's return to Earth after he was scouted to enlist in the Science Guard Party. Starting with their fight against four Seagras, Joneus assisted mankind in fending off against monsters and alien attacks brought to Earth. At one point, Joneus was killed by the Spirit Parasite, forcing both him and Hikari to be transported to Planet U40 for resurrection. Hikari met with his recuperating Ultra again, but in addition to revealing his true name, Joneus purposely obscured his appearance from his host. The two merged again and finally helped in repelling the Bader Group's invasion on both U40 and Earth. Both Joneus and Hikari were returned to the latter planet, but his human host was wiped of his memory to maintain U40's existence as a secret.

Several months later, Planet U40 was invaded by the Heller Empire, consisting of Heller and his other like-minded followers who announced their galactic conquest as a revenge for their banishment. As his other brethren were recuperating outside their home world, Joneus was left behind on Earth to protect it from Heller's forces. Both him and the Science Guard Party joined the U40 fleet to reclaim their home world and launch their attack on Heller City. Joneus at first parted ways with Hikari to fight against the aerial fleet, leaving the Science Guard Party to infiltrate the fortress until he merged with his host again to save them from Makdatar. With Heller's death, Joneus and the Science Guard were awarded for their bravery. Both him and his sister Amia stayed on Earth to observe its recovery from their war. Although the two parted ways months later, Joneus swore to return to Earth at the time of need, hinting that he might choose a different host by the time they reunited.

Ultraman: Great Monster Decisive Battle

For the first time Ultraman Joneus appeared live in the 1979 film. In the film however Ultraman Joneus is referred to as Ultraman Joe.

Like most of the other Ultras featured in the movie, he was only given a short bio featuring his ray the Planium Beam. However unlike the other Ultras, his fight scene is new live footage as he fought Bedran in a mossy forest. Ultraman Joe and Bedran were at a close match until Joe used his Planium Beam to eliminate the deadly beast. He is later shown as stock footage for most Ultra Brothers movies. Ultraman: Great Monster Decisive Battle

Pre-Ultraman Taiga

After the death of his friend Mattia, Ultraman Titas was taken under the wing of Joneus, whom he trained and looked after for a long time after.

Later, Ultraman Taro sent his son Ultraman Taiga to Planet U40 to gain experience and meet new people. There, he met Ultraman Titas and Ultraman Joneus, who were being invaded by Zett and a new Zetton Army, seeking to fight strong warriors and defeat them all to claim his title as "the strongest life form in the universe". While Joneus fought Zett, he told Titas and Taiga to retrieve the Wise Man's Sword in order to seal Zett away. They individually attempted to do so, but the sword rejected the both of them since the lights in their heart were weak. The two of them decided to pull the sword out of the stone together, and it worked because they were able to combine their powers. Impaling Zett with the sword, they managed to seal him away using the weapon's powers. Taiga invites Titas to go on a journey with him, though he was skeptical at first. However, Joneus managed to convince Titas to go along with him so that he may be able to learn something about his own true potential.

Galaxy Rescue Force Voice Dramas

The higher powers of Planet U40, including the Great Sage, became increasingly aware of the activity of the Galaxy Rescue Force. Joneus was sent as a messenger to them, informing Queen Izana that the people f his planet would be bound by oath to ally with them for any future threats that may occur, as well as providing assistance in general operations if necessary. One such instance occured when Joneus accompanied Sora on an operation to investigate an alien disturbing a planet's ecosystem.

Ultra Galaxy Fight: The Absolute Conspiracy

Ultraman Joneus fighting against Absolute Tartarus

As Absolute Tartarus scouted out Planet U40, Joneus appeared before him. As he and Tartarus fought, Joneus was declared a potential threat to the Absolutian's plans. They blasted at each other with energy bolts, and Tartarus fled the scene through his golden portal. Ultraman Zero then arrived and asked for Joneus' help in forming a team to face Tartarus. Having heard from Zoffy that U40 had been attacked, Ultraman Titas went back to his home planet to check on Joneus. Joneus reassured Titas that he was fine, and asked him to join the fight against Tartarus.


Yullian and Ultraman 80 had crash landed on Planet Ebil on the way to a Galactic Federation Peace Conference on Planet Kanon and were soon attacked by Zett and his Zetton army. They sent a distress signal to the Land of Light. Responding to the message, Taiga, Mebius and Z immediately left the Land of Light and arrived on Planet Ebil to assist them. They were later joined by Ultraman Zero, Ultraman Joneus, Ultraman Titas, Ultraman Fuma, Ultrawoman Grigio, Ultraman Ribut and Andro Melos, and they all fought the Zetton army together.

Soon after defeating Ultimate Shining Zero in Narak, Absolute Tartarus appeared, taking Yullian hostage and informing the heroes of his true motives before getting Belial and Tregear to fire their beams at them all. The group also received word from Ultraman Hikari that Genegarg had stolen a Z Riser and Ultra Medals from the Land of Light, causing Z to fly off in a hurry while Zero followed him. The Ultra League and the Tri-Squad prepare to recruit more heroes for the upcoming fight against The Kingdom. The Appearance

Ultra Galaxy Fight: The Destined Crossroad

After the battle on Planet Ebil, Joneus returned to the Land of Light alongside the rest of the Ultra League. Zoffy requests that he stay to train the Inter Galactic Defense Force on battle tactics, to which he accepts. He then agrees to train Zero. On Planet K76, Ultraseven, Leo and Joneus put Zero in a Tector Gear and par with him, advising him that the only way that he could stand a chance against Absolute Tartarus was to fight by using his instincts, which he could only accomplish if Zero managed to regain the wilder side he had earlier in his youth, despite the encounters he had making him stronger up to that point.
