The Zero Sluggers (ゼロスラッガー Zero Suraggā) are twin Sluggers, similar to Ultraseven's Eye Slugger, that are wielded by Ultraman Zero, Darklops Zero, and Ultraman Zero Darkness.

Usage

Like the Eye Slugger and most Sluggers in general, the Zero Sluggers can be used as projectiles, or as hand-held blades. Like all Sluggers, 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 four of these Sluggers, however they are non-detachable and energy projections take their place when used in combat.

Powers

Normal
  • Zero Slugger Attack (ゼロスラッガーアタック Zero Suraggā Atakku): A slashing attack with the Zero Sluggers.
  • Zero Twin Sword (ゼロツインソード Zero Tsuin Sōdo): The Zero Sluggers turn into a crescent-shaped blade using the Plasma Spark's energy. This can be thrown like a giant boomerang.
    • Plasma Spark Slash (プラズマスパークスラッシュ Purazuma Supāku Surasshu): A slashing attack performed after energizing the Zero Twin Sword.
  • Combination Zero (コンビネーションゼロ Konbinēshon Zero): A combination attack with Ultraseven, using both of their Slugger weapons. The bladed projectiles circle around each other at high speeds and are then launched at the enemy, cutting them apart.
  • Reflection: Naturally resembling the Eye Slugger, the Zero Sluggers are capable of acting as mirror-like substances, which he used in a strategic attack against Villainous and his Tyrant.
  • Zero Twin Shoot (ゼロツインシュート Zero Tsuin Shūto): A powerful beam from his chest fired with with the Zero Sluggers attached.
Luna-Miracle Zero
  • Miracle Zero Slugger (ミラクルゼロスラッガー Mirakuru Zero Suraggā): Zero can generate three pairs or more of his Zero Sluggers, controlling them all mentally. He can bring them together in an attack similar to Combination Zero.
Zero Darkness
  • Cutting Attack: A technique that was used on Glenfire, it uses the Dark Zero Sluggers. He slashes the opponent in a blink of an eye, tearing through their flesh.
  • Dark Zero Twin Shoot (ダークゼロツインシュート Dāku Zero Tsuin Shūto): A dark version of Zero's Zero Twin Shoot.
Zero Beyond
  • Quattro Slugger (クアトロスラッガー Kuatoro Suraggā): Zero creates projections of the 4 non-detachable Sluggers on his head and launches them at his target(s). They can defend against incoming attacks by having them spin around each other at high speeds.
  • Boost Megaphone (ブーストメガホン Būsuto Megahon): The Quattro Slugger can also be used as a makeshift megaphone if need be, and can produce sounds loud enough to launch a monster off into space.
  • Beyond Twin Edge (ビヨンドツインソエッジ Biyondo Tsuin Ejji): Zero can wield two Zero Twin Swords made purely of energy, at once. They are also somewhat capable of ranged attack by launching energy slashes. Zero is able to summon a solid type of the Beyond Twin Edge as well. A purple energy slash is released when sliced at foes in solid type.
    • Twin Giga Break (ツインギガブレイク Tsuin Giga Bureiku): Zero enlarges the solid Beyond Twin Edge into a projection, then slashes the enemy, leaving a "Z" shaped cut through the opponent.
  • Slugging Chorus (スラッギングコーラス Suraggingu Kōrasu): Zero launches the Quattro Sluggers and the Bulky Chorus simultaneously at the enemy. Used against Star Bem Gyeron.
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
  • Darklops Zero Sluggers (ダークロプスゼロスラッガー Dākuropsu Zero Suraggā): A variation used by Darklops Zero. They lack the Zero Twin Sword form due to their robotic nature.
Darklops
  • Darklops Sluggers (ダークロプススラッガー Dākuropsu Suraggā): Variations used by the Darklops. The models are no different to the ones used by their prototype, Darklops Zero.

Trivia

  • 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.
