Powers and Abilities:Edit
- Piloting skills: Like any Super GUTS member, Taiga is trained in the use of the machines, he also considered a piloting prodigy
- Combat Training: As any Super GUTS member, Taiga is trained in combat, obviously armed combat and unharmed combat
- Agility: Taiga displayed somewhat superhuman agility as he jumped between flying debris and balanced himself on a monster's spinning drill all while holding a young boy. Zero stated this was because of his presence in Taiga's body.
- Transformation: While he was the host of Ultraman Zero, he could transform using the Ultra Eye like Ultraseven's.
Some time in his childhood Taiga witnessed firsthand a monster attack or alien invasion where in his mother and father were killed. He blamed his parent's death on the Ultras since none had appeared to protect mankind after the disappearance of Dyna. Since then he refused to accept the power of Ultra and believed that mankind had grown past the need for their help as a mask for his trauma and spite. Some time later, Taiga Nozomu became a new rookie pilot from Super GUTS, with a cocky attitude similar to Shin Asuka. However unlike Shin who ultimately respected his predecessors, Taiga was disrespectful to the memory of his MIA superior due to his dislike of all ultras. When a set of Gran Sphere drones attacked the Mars colony Daigo took a fighter and defeated them despite being ordered to return to base by his commander.
Eventually Taiga found himself lodged into the energy sphere of an unknown ship and transported to Earth in another universe. The same one that Zero was transported to. Watching the Ultra battle the alien fighter drones, Taiga refused to fight out of spite he directed to the Ultra
His first debut is in the movie He fused with Asuka and Musashi to become a new hero called Ultraman Saga.
- Taiga's actor, Daigo is from the band, "Stardust Breakerz."
- According to some earlier reports by Tsuburaya, Taiga had a great dislike for Ultraman, Aliens, and Monsters in general after his parents were killed in the battle between Ultraman Jack and the original Alien Bat. This is proven false as that battle took place in the Showa universe not the Tiga universe.
- Nozomu Taiga's name is similar to the Nobori Taiga aka Kamen Rider Saga from Kamen Rider Kiva series.
