Ultraman Nice (ウルトラマンナイス Urutoraman Naisu) is an Ultra who came from the planet TOY-1 in a series of "infomercials" (1 minute toy commercials) presented during the 1999 Japan reruns of Ultraman Tiga. The 1 minute spots, advertising the wide variety of Bandai Ultraman toys, actually do have a storyline, along with some "surprise guests." He also has an alter ego: Dr. E.G. (Dr.ドクターエッグ Dokutā Eggu), a demonstrator of the toyline Ultra-E.G..

History

Ultraman Nice

In a world where Ultraman is nothing more than a television series, a hero does exist, a hero by the name of Ultraman Nice! Much like the characters on the shows, Nice exists to defend humans from the wrath of evil monsters. Taking on the host of Ginga Yumeboshi, member of the GOKAZOKU Team, he’s called into action when Ginga eats a piece of chocolate from his Nice Dreamer wrist band. Outside of his series Nice is often seen in stage shows as a comic relief character, often paired with the other parody Ultra, Ultraman Zearth.

Ultra-E.G.

In the future, humans had began to gain control of Ultra-E.G. monsters that originally Ultra Kaijus that trapped into egg-like toys by an unknown force. In response to this Dr. E.G., the head of Ultra-E.G. researchers appeared and planned to conduct further studies on these Ultra-E.G.s. He stubbornly denied his true identity as Nice, though in Tsuburaya All Monster Photobook does confirm his identity.

  • Ultraman Nice is the only Ultra not to have the Color Timer in the middle of his chest. (The Ultra Force have Beam Lamps, which act and sound like Color Timers)
  • He is the only Ultra whose human host eats something to transform.
    • This would imply that when his human host finished all his chocolate in the Nice Dreamer, he will not be able to transform anymore.
      • Unless, of course, his Nice Dreamer magically refills with chocolate when he runs out.
  • Nice is the second parody Ultra, with Zearth being the first.

  • His antics on the stage shows usually end up getting him in heaps of trouble, or even thrown off the stage by other Ultras such as Ultraman and Ultraman Zero.
  • Ultraman Nice is the first Ultra not to be from Earth to have a human family with a woman named Akimi as his wife, a daughter named Cosmo, and a son called Mirai. Despite this, none of them know of his true identity and it's also unknown if Cosmo and Mirai are his biological children or if they were adopted.
  • Ultraman Nice and Ultraman Zearth are often paired with each other in the Ultraman Land stage shows, even forming a comedy team.
