The manga version of Taro, this is a younger and much more brash and arrogant version to the one seen in the TV series.


Ultraman Story 0

The son of Father and Mother of Ultra, Taro was the first Ultra born after his people mutated into giants of light. Taro was first seen fully formed by his father and future teacher Colorless, after Ultraman's light ray found its way to the Ultra Tower, its fire was being used to power his gestation tank. Upon freeing himself, Taro gave off an intense light that surprised his teacher, noting that it may have been the end result of two powerful Ultras having a child together.

Later on Taro and Colorless watched as Seven, Zaji and members of the Silver Cross flew off to help Ultraman after his battle with the Baltans. While Taro was anxious to go with them, Colorless told him they had another task to perform.

Taro UltraBadge Story0

Ultra Badge's manga counterpart

Taro transforms the same way he does in the TV series. He uses the Ultra Badge which materializes on his left shoulder whenever he is ready to transform. He uses the same movements and shout as his TV counterpart's human host and the light of his transformation is much more intense than that of other Ultras, burning away all evil entities nearby if he allows it.
