After Daigo realized his dream to become an astronaut, a light grants him the Spark Lens and becomes Ultraman Tiga. As the giant rises, the whole city begins to support him as he fights King Silvergon and King Goldras. Though Tiga gains the upper hand at first but only to be captured in Super Alien Hipporito's cylinder. Asuka and Gamu then also remember their own hopes and dreams with the help of Ryo and Atsuko which enable them to transform into Dyna and Gaia. The two giant later frees Tiga from Hipporito's prison and fights the two monsters. With both King Silvergon and King Goldras defeated, Super Alien Hipporito appears and attacks. The alien finally met his end when Tiga fires his Zepellion Ray.
However, the mysterious cloaked being and many other similar looking beings use their magic to revive the souls of the defeated monsters. The souls combine to form Giga Khimaira. The monster knocks down the three Ultras, however, their friends and the city continuously cheer them on and they rise up to right Giga Khimaira. Soon, Hayata, Dan, Goh, and Seiji transform into the Ultra Brothers with the help of their wives. Together, they free Ultraman Mebius from his imprisonment. The five then join Tiga, Dyna, and Gaia help fight Giga Khimaira. After repelling several attacks from Giga Khimaira, it flees into space. The Super 8 Ultra Brothers follow it and finish it off. However after returning to Earth, the cloaked beings once again rise.
The mysterious beings, called Black Silhouette, fuse to become the Giant Black Silhouette. The Giant Black Silhouette states that he will make more powerful monsters and bring despair to Earth. Tiga however replies back that it's useless and that the light in everyone's heart will always protect them. The Super 8 Ultra Brothers combine their powers to use the Superior Myth Flasher and destroy the Giant Black Silhouette.
