Ultra Fight (ウルトラファイト?) is a television series which ran from September 1970 to September 1971 on Tokyo Broadcasting System.

Following the end of Ultraseven's run on television, Tsuburaya Productions suffered low viewership for its two follow-up series, so in a last-ditch effort, conceived a "zero production cost" program consisting simply of battle scenes from the first Ultraman and Ultra Seven series. The episodes were 5 minutes long, with no true plot. They involved Ultraseven fighting (and mostly being beaten by) various kaiju including ones he did not face in his series, such as Baltan. The initial plan was to use nothing but recycled footage. However, it became apparent that there was insufficient material for the planned 130 episodes, so Tsuburaya decided to shoot new scenes using existing costumes, on a minimal budget in various outdoor locations, with no special effects at all. 195 episodes were eventually produced.

In keeping with the "fight" theme, the battles were accompanied by a boxing-style play-by-play, provided by TBS professional sports announcer Jiro Yamada.

Among notable episodes include one where Ultraseven tears the wings off a kaiju and then beats it to death with them. Another has Seven on a hilltop and accidentally causing a rockslide, that awakens a sleeping Eleking who is less than pleased to have rocks falling on him. What follows is an one-sided battle where Eleking takes his anger out on Seven while he, accepting his mistake, tries to apologize.

While far from epic, the Ultra Fight series rekindled interest in the Ultra Series, enough that shortly after, The Return of Ultraman was aired. The series continues today.
