Ultraman Belial (Zero Darkness)
|Powers:||Combat item, can be used to fire beams|
|First Appearance:||Mega Monster Battle: Ultra Galaxy Legends The Movie|
The Zero Sluggers (ゼロスラッガー Zero Suraggā) are double Crest Weapons similar to Ultraseven's Eye Slugger that are wielded by Ultraman Zero, Darklops Zero, and Ultraman Belial (as Zero Darkness). They can be used in combat and to fire beams.
Like the Eye Slugger, and all crest weapons in general, the Zero Sluggers can be used as projectiles, or as hand-held blades. Like all Crest Weapons, they can cut through dense materials. Energy can be directed into them to improve their cutting ability.
Unlike his father, Zero can use his blades to fire an Ultra Beam.
Thanks to his empowerment and various forms, Zero can use them for other means. This includes combining them into one larger crescent blade, known as the Zero Twin Sword (ゼロツインソード Zero Tsuin Sōdo) and multiplying them and controlling them mentally. As Ultraman Zero Beyond, he has 4 of these Crest Weapons, however they are non-detachable and energy projections take their place when used in combat.
Zero Slugger Gear
In 2010, Tsuburaya Prod. and Televi-Kun launched a competition called New Power-up Armor Design Contest (新強化アーマーデザインコンテスト Shin Kyōka Amā Dezain Kontesuto) for the readers to design armed forms of Ultraman Zero, where he would turn his Zero Sluggers into battle armor.
After the competition was over, the two winning entries made their appearance in Ultraman Festival 2010, as Zero splits into three and the two copies initiate the Zero Slugger Gear (ゼロスラッガーギア Zero Suraggā Gia).
Two armors had been identified, namely Super Form (スーパーフォーム Sūpā Fōmu) and Keeper Form (キーパーフォーム Kīpā Fōmu) respectively.

Darklops Zero Sluggers
Dark Zero Sluggers
- They were originally called the Double ISluggers (Pronounced Eye Sluggers), during Zero's development phase, when he was called Ultraseven AX and was all red, until it was changed as it made Zero more like another revamp of his father Ultraseven.
- As Zero Darkness, the Zero Sluggers glowed purple instead of the usual green. Also, Belial holds the blades in a manner of pinch grip, except when he initiates Dark Zero Twin Shoot unlike Zero.
- In Ultraman Geed, Darklops Zero didn't remove its Darklops Zero Sluggers by hand, instead energy hues surround them and went to his hands in a similar manner to Zero.
