"It's no use. However hopeless it'll be, the light in people's hearts will never disappear!"
- ―Daigo (as Ultraman Tiga) to Giant Black Silhouette

After Daigo realized his dream to become an astronaut, a light grants him the Sparklence 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 Alien Super Hipporit'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 Hipporit's prison and fights the two monsters. With both King Silvergon and King Goldras defeated, Alien Super Hipporit appears and attacks. The alien finally met his end when Tiga fires his Zeperion Beam.
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, Go, 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.

The Super 8 Ultra Brothers combine their powers to use the Superior Myth Flasher and destroy the Giant Black Silhouette.
