Grigio means "Gray" in Italian, a name shared with a species of kaiju in the series. Despite this, their Japanese names are spelled and pronounced differently: Ultrawoman Grigio (ウルトラウーマングリージョ Urutoraūman Gurījo) vs Grigio Bone (グルジオボーン Gurujio Bōn). The official website further reveals that the former Katakana was indeed from Saki Mitsurugi's true name, which Asahi adopted as her Ultrawoman alter-ego in her memory.
Ultraman R/B The Movie: Select! The Crystal of Bond
During the battle against Ultraman Tregear and Snake Darkness, Asahi had transformed into Grigio Regina. However, her attacks, as well as those of Ultramen Rosso, Blu and Geed were ineffective against them. As they were about to be beaten, Saki Mitsurugi's spirit reached out to Asahi, who unlocked her true power. Grigio Regina's exoskeleton then split open, and Ultrawoman Grigio emerged from it. Restoring the energy of the three Ultra Warriors, she helped them against their opponents but they were still outclassed. To finish the battle, the Minato siblings joined hands and called upon the Makoto Crystal, fusing Rosso, Blu and Grigio into Ultraman Groob, joining Geed Ultimate Final in a more evenly-matched battle. Eventually, Groob destroyed Snake Darkness via the Groobing Ray and freed Yukio from Tregear's dark influence.
Ultra Galaxy Fight: New Generation Heroes
With her brothers overseas, Asahi remained in Ayaka City to protect it from danger. She transforms into Ultrawoman Grigio to train, but Ultra Dark-Killer suddenly arrives through a portal chasing Ultraman Zero. Dark-Killer demanded that Zero hand her over, but he refuses, so Dark-Killer sends them both to his Dark-Killer Zone. Refusing to give up, a weakened Grigio managed to protect Zero and hold her own against Ultraman Zero Darkness before proceeding to replenish the energies of her brothers, allowing them to merge into Ruebe, who later overwhelmed the combined efforts of Zero Darkness and Dark-Killer. However, Tregear revives both Zero Darkness and Dark-Killer, the latter of which growing to gigantic size.
To battle him, the Minato siblings fuse into Ultraman Groob. Once the New Generation Heroes had finally defeated Dark-Killer, Rosso and Blu decide to send Grigio back to Ayaka City because they needed someone to protect it. While her brothers and the other New Generation Heroes fight against Tregear near the Land of Light, Zero sends her back home.
