Ultrawoman Grigio (ウルトラウーマングリージョ Urutoraūman Gurījo) is a female Ultra Warrior, and is the younger sister of Ultraman Rosso and Ultraman Blu. She first appeared in Ultraman R/B The Movie.

Conception

Etymology

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 former Katakana was indeed from Saki Mitsurugi's true name, which Asahi adopted as her Ultrawoman alter-ego in her memory.[1][2]

History

Ultraman R/B The Movie: Select! The Crystal of Bond

The Minato Siblings teaming up with Geed

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 Beam and freed Yukio from Tregear's dark influence. Ultraman R/B The Movie: Select! The Crystal of Bond

Ultra Galaxy Fight: New Generation Heroes

Grigio and Zero vs Zero Darkness

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. Ultra Galaxy Fight: New Generation Heroes

By unknown means, Grigio travelled to Taiga's universe to assist her brothers against Tregear once more. She later fuses with the brothers to become Groob in order to fight Gorothunder and Grimdo. Ultraman Taiga The Movie: New Generation Climax

Trivia

  • Grigio is:

    • The only live-action heroic female Ultra Warrior in the Heisei Era, as Camearra and Faust were both villains.
    • The second female Ultra Warrior in canon to actually use the title "Ultrawoman" after Ultrawoman Beth, and the first to debut in a Japanese-created and live-action series.
    • The first Ultra Warrior to feature orange coloring on her body, and the first New Generation Ultra Hero to not heavily feature black coloring since Ultraman X.
    • The first Ultra Warrior to have "evolved" from a Kaiju.
  • One of her concept art designs depicted her having long strands of hair, as well as pink eyes.[5]
  • Grigio's Color Timer sound effect is appropriately a mix of her brothers', just like Ruebe's.
  • Grigio presented a non-canon 30-minute special released just before the initial release of Ultraman Taiga The Movie, in which she was on the Land of Light while her brothers and the other New Generation Heroes were fighting Grimdo as in the events of the movie, which she later joins.
  • Although never seen, after her first appearance, Asahi transforms into Grigio using Saki's Gyro.[6]
