The Ultraman suit (ウルトラマンスーツ Urutoraman Sūtsu) is an invention of Mitsuhiro Ide that first appears in the 2011 manga. In the absence of a Transformation Item, the suit is donned by the protagonists to become 'Ultramen'. The suits are essentially powered bio armors that Shinjiro, his father and others wear when in combat.

History

ULTRAMAN

A creation of Ide, though some of their technology was provided by Yapool, the suit is a device made to be worn by a bearer of the Ultraman Factor, allowing them to use a greater potential of their Ultra DNA than before. It has two known wearers, Shin Hayata and his son Shinjiro. The two wore them to fulfill their roles as 'Ultraman' for the SSSP, helping to battle evil aliens and act as a deterrent for other aliens who may think to commit similar atrocities.

Later models designed for normal humans have also been designed and built.

The Protosuit (プロトスーツ Purotosūtsu) was the first suit was worn by Shin Hayata, this black and grey armor is without a helmet or any extra features. It was used by Shin for some ten years, its first use being against the being calling itself Bemular.

It was later enhanced into the Covenience Prototype, featuring a facemask like the Ultraman suit and a modernized power core. Worn by Shin to fight Ace Killer and his goons.

Abilities
  • Focus: The suit focus the wearer's strength allowing them to make better use of their natural strength.
  • Protection: While both provide protection, the newer model seemed to hold superior defense as it took Bemular's heat ray at point-blank range and was relatively unscathed while Shin's armor was damaged by Bemular's own strength and extra arms.
  • Color Timer: On the suit, there is a mechanical Color Timer. When the suit's energy output or consumption of Specium energy from the user drops below certain levels the light turns red and begins to flash like a real Color Timer.

The newer model worn by Shinjiro, this suit more closely resembles Ultraman. It has all the same abilities as the first one but has a helmet and added armaments such as the Specium Blades and the Specium Ray. Its first use was also against Bemular in the same battle that saw the end of the prototype's use. The suit was described by Ide as a reinforced version of the prototype version, meaning greater protection and more features.

It is eventually upgraded into the B-Type suit, with more features added as well as more red coloring, and a reduction in weight. Ide upgraded the suit after noticing that the old suit could no longer keep up with Shinjiro's evolving fighting style.

Abilities
  • Ultraman Helmet: Shinjiro's suit comes with a helmet with a retractable face plate for his mouth. The helmet was obviously designed to resemble Ultraman and has a communication device installed so Ide can talk to Shinjiro when ever he needs to.
  • Focus: The suit focuses the wearer's strength allowing them to make better use of their natural strength.
  • Protection: While both provide protection, the newer model seemed to hold superior defense as it took Bemular's heat ray at point-blank range and was relatively unscathed, Shin's armor was damaged by Bemular's own strength and extra arms. Shinjiro was still injured from the heat ray, but it is unlikely he would've even survived that blast without the armor.
  • Color Timer: On both father and son's suits there is a mechanical Color Timer. When the suit's energy output or consumption of Specium energy from the user drops below certain levels the light turns red and begins to flash like a real color timer.
    • Limiter: When Shinjiro's armor is forced to its limits he can release the limiter. This gives him a speed and power boost and enhances his Specium Ray, however he has a short time before he is left completely drained of energy. When activated it appears that Shinjiro is glowing red and red streams of energy flow from his helmet's eyes and Color Timer.
  • Specium Blades (スペシウムブレード Supeshiumu Burēdo): Shinjiro's suit is armed with Specium Blades, which are multipurpose energy blades.
    • Blades: Like their names suggest they are are used for cutting and slicing through objects.
    • Acceleration/Thrusters: The blades can be used as thrusters to propel Shinjiro forward or into the air.
    • Defense: The blades can defend against energy attacks such as Bemular’s lasers. They cannot stop large beams however.
  • Specium Ray (スペシウム光線 Supeshiumu Kōsen): On Shinjiro's wrists are connectors for the control units, when the left and right connectors are joined together, Shinjiro puts arms in the classic arm position the beam is automatically fired. The beam is fired from his horizontal arm and when the beam is being prepared and used the Specium Blades are deactivated. It is fired slightly differently in the anime adaptation, whereby Shinjiro pulls down a tab on the vertical right arm to reveal a port that fires the Specium Ray.
B-Type
  • Specium Slash (スペシウムスラッシュ Supeshiumu Surasshu): Shinjiro can conjure twin rings of energy, one on each hand, and use them to slice through things. They can also be thrown.
  • MARS-133 Revised (MARS-133改 Marusu Ichi San San Kai): A Specium Rifle that was designed for Shinjiro's use, to conserve the Ultraman Suit's energy. Its name is based off an old SSSP weapon, one that worked on the same principle as Ultraman's Specium Ray.
  • Cloaking: The B-Type suit is capable of cloaking to stay out of plain sight. It takes on a far darker color scheme, mostly being black and grey, while the light-up parts turn a dark red.

Main article: Dan Moroboshi (ULTRAMAN)

Ultraman Suit Ver. 7 (ウルトラマンスーツ Ver.7 Urutoraman Sūtsu Ver.7), also called the Seven Suit (セブンスーツ Sebun Sūtsu), is a newer model made to be worn by ordinary people, who do not have the Ultraman Factor, it is armed with a blade and other edge weapons to compensate for the wearer's lack of an Ultraman Factor/Superhuman Strength. Despite it being made to be worn by a normal human, it places a great deal of strain on the user, meaning not just anyone can wear it. As it is constantly being upgraded from combat data gain through use, it is commonly referred to as just Version 'Seven'.

Abilities
  • Ultraman Helmet: Moroboshi's suit has its own version of the Ultraman Helmet, this one bears a great resemblance to Ultraseven and also Mirror Knight. His helmet has a green light on the forehead that may be the suit's equivalent of the mechanical Color Timer seen on the previous models, further increasing the resemblance to Seven, via his Beam Lamp. Unlike Shinjiro's, this one can be connected to the suit and slides down over the wearer's face as the mouthpiece rises.
  • Strength: Since he does not have the Ultraman Factor, Moroboshi's suit gives him greater strength than he would normally possess.
  • Extra Armor: The version 7 suit was built with normal humans in mind, thus it has more armor than Shinjiro's model, particularly the chest and the shoulder region.
  • Specium Sword (スぺシウムソード Supeshiumu Sōdo): Morboshi's suit comes with a high-tech katana. The blade is capable of devastating amounts of damage and using Specium Blade technology improve its cutting ability to the point that it can make a shockwave when swung. Because it is using Specium Blade technology, it is powered by Specium energy. Moroboshi wields two of these when the suit gets upgraded into Version 7.3 and beyond.
  • Throwing Knives: Moroboshi's suit is armed with throwing knives that resemble Ultraseven's Eye Slugger. They are stored in pockets on the back of the suit.
Version 7.3
  • EX-Rifle (EXライフル EX Raifuru): A modification of the rifle used by the SSSP Extermination Squads, they fire Emerium Bullets (エメリウム弾 Emeriumu Dan) tipped with crystallized alien energy. Moroboshi uses two of them.
  • Wide Shot (ワイドショット Waido Shotto): A heavy Specium cannon, its power is close to that of Shinjiro's ray. It can be used as a beam blade by continuous fire, but that consumes energy quickly. Moroboshi carries two.
Version 7.5
  • Eye Sluggers (アイスラッガー Ai Suraggā): Twin combat knives that are used by Seven. Ide made them capable of combining into a single larger weapon at Moroboshi's request. This is done by simply connecting the two blades to a intermittent connector. Despite their name and user, they are closer to the Zero Sluggers in function than the original Eye Slugger.


AceSuit


AnimeAceSuit


Main article: Seiji Hokuto (ULTRAMAN)

The Ace Suit (エーススーツ Ēsu Sūtsu) was designed by Yapool apparently designed to be worn by a normal human being, specifically Seiji Hokuto. It is similar in appearance to Ultraman Ace. Though it is technically called 'Ultraman suit Ver. A'; the 'A' standing for 'Alien' due to its origins, Seiji personally calls it the Ace suit.

Abilities
  • Ultraman Helmet: Seiji's helmet appears to be very similar to Ultraman Ace's head, complete with the forward pointed crest and hole.
  • Mechanical Color Timer: Like Shin's and Shinjiro's suits, Seiji's has a mechanical color timer that serves the same main purpose.
  • Specium Blade (スペシウムブレード Supeshiumu Burēdo): Seiji's suits also sports arm mounted Specium weapons, but unlike Shinjiro's, they connect with each other to create a blade similar to Ultraman Ace's Ultra Guillotine technique.
  • Flight: Seiji's suit is somehow able to provide flight via thrusters on his back, but they are not designed for long range flight.
  • Beam Gauntlet: The suit's arm somehow reconfigures itself to become a giant beam cannon.
  • Teleportation: When Seiji puts his fists together, a modified Mimicry System teleports the suit onto him. when he expects to go into battle.


American Suits Manga
Main article: Jack (ULTRAMAN)

The Jack Suits (ジャックスーツ Jakku Sūtsu), also called the American Suits by some, were made directly by Yapool in America. The suits are larger and bulkier due to the lack of resources Yapool worked with and because he was asked to make them look more imposing. However their size is for more than show, as they house several pieces of technology. Among them is the suit which Jack wears, from whence the name comes, while the other two sport simplified heads and chests.

Abilities
  • Forcefield: A normally unseen shield of energy that can be deployed at will to protect the user.
  • Retractable Mask: The mask can be retracted and stored within the back armor.
  • Forearms: In its forearms are several weapons.
    • Railgun: An electromagnetic high powered gun.
    • Sword: The suit sports a retractable sword stored in its forearm.


ZoffySuit
Main article: Shin Hayata (ULTRAMAN)

Shin Hayata's new suit donned at the battle of New York, Ultraman suit Ver. Z (ウルトラマンスーツ Ver. Z Urutoraman Sūtsu Ver. Z) replaces the old prototype he once wore. Its design is based on Zoffy.

Abilities
  • Focus: The suit focus the wearer's strength allowing them to make better use of their natural strength. Ver. Z takes this function a step firther via the glowing lights on the chest and shoulders, which enhance the Specium energy the suit absorbs from Shin.
  • Protection: Like the other suits, this one also provides it wearer with extra protection against attacks.
  • Color Timer: On the suit, there is a mechanical Color Timer. When the suit's energy output or consumption of Specium energy from the user drops below certain levels the light turns red and begins to flash like a real Color Timer.
  • Specium Ray: The Ver. Z suit allowed Shin to fire a Specium Ray, much like Shinjiro's suit.

Trivia

  • The Ultraman suits bares a resemblance the robots from Linebarrels of Iron, a previous work done by ULTRAMAN's penning team Eiichi Shimizu and Tomohiro Shimoguchi.
  • The suit can be seen as an artificial Ultra Armor (skin of an Ultra Warrior) since there are no transformation devices in the series, and without it, the main character would be helpless in a fight.
  • The suit is the first known, major Ultra related item to have been created by humans.
  • The eye visor of the Version 7 suit is based on Ultraman Noa's Energy Core.
  • The live-action suit used at Comic Con 2017, as well as the CGI model for the 2019 Anime has more red spots around the thighs and the neck, making it look more similar to Ultraman himself.
