Greetings Ultra Fan, and general users of the community. I'm making this post today to deal with a problem. In the upper echelons of the Wiki's community and management, there is an impasse. We have found ourselves at each other's throat over this topic, and I've since decided that it's best, if the entire community chooses, since we cannot break this stalemate ourselves. The question is thus: should we name the character page Ultraman Z or Ultraman Zett?
The basis of this debate is a debate of intent, what did the writers, the creators actually intend as the pronunciation and spelling of the character's name. For this reason the divide has resulted in two camps; Z or Zett.
- Prior instances, such as Ace, where the series is spelled Ultraman A…

Welcome to Villains in Review, the blog series were I rant about villain in the franchise. A few things first. Outside material does not matter. I'm not judging these villains based on some extra piece of information added in a magazine, or novel to expand them. This is about how they were presented to us in the TV Series and movies. Secondly, if you cannot separate your opinion from your tastes, or just simply downright cannot tell the difference, you're a fanboy and your opinion is trivial. If you like a character is dislike, or vice versa, I have no problem with that or you. However, if you assume that's ground for a flame war, go suck on a...hose, and stop bothering everyone else.
Now if you're not a fanboy/girl, then lets continue, and…Read more >
Sol here, with a Fan theory, one not directly connected to Ultra Biology (for once) but instead, about a whole bunch of biologies probably inspired by one Ultra in particular, Noa.
There's so much we as Western Fans don't get to see about the series, or know because that information is not accessible to most of us. This theory is based on findings and noticing certain...similarities between the Visitors, Zagi, and even the Space Beasts and certainly ties into a certain theme in Nexus that connects it with Cosmic Horror.
The Basic theory is that the Visitors, Zagi, especially when dealing with his form deprived of his Ultra body, and by extension his Dark Giant brood, and especially the Space Beasts, are all examples of the same type of Bio T…

Hey, guys and gals of the Wiki Community and to the Ultraman fandom at large, heck, even the Tokusatsu fans in general. This message is to all of them, the Goji fans, the Rider fans, the Power Ranger fans, the Super Sentai fans (Don't ask me why I need to seperate those two, tis the season to not ask those questions), and our fellow Ultraman fans and all fans of all obscure tokusatsu world wide.
Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukah, and Happy Holidays, to even those who are no longer with us, wether because of the unfortunate fragility of life, or because we can no longer agree on things, even the trolls that haunt us like an incurable disease, I wish you all a glad Yuletime and hopefully a better New Year.
So again, Merry Christmas, Happy Holiday…Read more >
Hey guys, Sol here again. I decided to talk about Aliens this time, so no long winded discussions into the theoretical biological nature of a theoretical species. This is less a theory and more...observation primarily on how the portrayal of aliens in the Ultra series has changed. Why? Why not?
Let's go back, back to the beginning of it all, Ultra Q, Ultraman, and Ultraseven. In this time, aliens were rather stereotypical for that time. Most science fiction was what we would call, 'pulp fiction', tales of adventures, dastardly space invaders, heroic and/or intelligent men saving the day. Aliens were rather simple, usually they were an invader, or the race helpful, almost fey like creatures. The fey comparison was especially true in Ultraman…
