Spark Dolls (スパークドール Supāku Dōru?) are the transformed bodies of Ultras, monsters and Aliens from various universes.
New Ultraman RetsudenEdit
Some time prior to the series, a multiversal war named the Dark Spark War raged between the side of good and the side of evil side, with the participants being comprised of the Ultramen versus the monsters and aliens for the universe. In the middle of the battle a dark giant appeared, looming over everyone else and transformed them into Spark Dolls. It was then that an Ultraman named Ginga fought the dark figure however their battle ended in a draw, resulting in both being changed into Spark Dolls locked away in their respective devices. The devices and the Spark Dolls fell to Earth where the Ginga Spark was eventually found and housed in the Ginga Shrine as a holy object. Years later, Hikaru Raido found the Ginga Spark and the presence of this object caused the various Spark Dolls hidden around his hometown to being to activate. In response the villain's lackey Alien Valky began going about giving the Dark Dummy Spark to corrupt minded individuals to sow chaos on Earth.
Ultraman Ginga SEdit
The spark dolls appeared again in the second season of Ultraman Ginga. Their sudden appearance seems to be caused by the Alien Chibu known as Exceller. Their origin is unknown, but some dialogue implies that may have also been in some manner of battle. It is also noted that the Victorium Crystals apparently have a similar energy signature to that of Spark Dolls.
In Ultraman X, Spark Dolls were scattered around the globe and stored beneath the Earth's surface and in its oceans. They were also treated as OOParts, possibly since said world is a parallel dimension in contrast to the Ultraman Ginga timeline. However, a strange purple solar flare bathed the Earth and triggered OOPArts from around the world, thus they awakened and rampaged, causing worldwide panic. Due to this, Xio was formed and fifteen years later, Ultraman X arrived on Earth to fight these threats. Later, Sparks Dolls from defeated Kaiju and Seijin would be kept by Xio as they used the Spark Dolls' elements in creating Cyber Cards.
Ultraman X's Zanadium Ray had a similar effect to Dark Lugiel, which involved turning/reverting a target to its Spark Doll state.
In this universe, Spark Dolls were not only OOPArts in Earth, but also weapons used by intergalactic criminals, as shown when Alien Zarab reanimated Bemstar and Alien Nackle Bandero stole them to sell for his client.
- The Spark Dolls are similar to the Ranger Keys of Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger and the Rider Cards in Kamen Rider Decade.
- They are similar to the Ranger Keys in that they hold the powers of the beings they resemble. Only in this case they are the beings they represent.
- They are similar to the Rider Cards, specifically in the movie Kamen Rider × Kamen Rider W & Decade: Movie War 2010, Decade: The Last Story, in which they both were acquired when they defeat an opponent.
- Another similarity with the Rider Cards is that they both have their own monster variations (Kaijin Ride Cards)
- They are also similar to the Rider Cards of Kamen Rider Diend whom can summon holographic manifestations of riders.
- The only known conscious Spark Doll appeared to be Ultraman Taro, however, Ginga spoke in Episode 6, revealing that he too, was still conscious, which was why Hikaru cannot transform at will. Despite speaking in Spark Doll Theater, all of Hikaru's Spark Dolls have had their consciousness sealed (Spark Doll Theater is a comedy show and not canon).
- They are the first transformation items to have a major toyline, as they replace the Ultra Monster Series and Ultra Hero Series.
- They also have their official name called the Monster 500 series due to the fact that the figures are 500 yen each.
