Ultraman Nice (ウルトラマンナイス Urutoraman Naisu) is an Ultra who came from Planet TOY-1 (トーイ一番星 Tōi Ichiban-sei) 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 by the name of Ultraman Nice was active. Much like the characters in the shows, Nice defended humans from Alien Zagon and his trio of monsters. Taking on the host of Ginga Yumeboshi, the vice-captain of GOKAZOKU, he was called into action when Ginga eats a piece of chocolate from his Nice Dreamer wrist band. While pysically weaker then his peers, he often is able to defeat his enemies in a pinch.

Ultra Galaxy Fight: The Destined Crossroad

With the looming threat of The Kingdom becoming larger, Nice, alongside Ultraman Zearth and Ultraman Boy, trained at the Ultra Colosseum together. Nice and Zearth practiced fighting together, but Nice became annoyed after Zearth messed up their routine. The two began squabbling, which escalted to the point where the two simultaneously punched each other in the face. Ultrawoman Grigio broke up the argument and came to heal them, before the three introduced themselves to Grigio.

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.
