Powers and Abilities
- Telekinesis: By waving his tail and activating his ring, Nyan can levitate objects and hurl them at enemies or open doors.
- Matter Transmutaion: Nyan can transform objects into something else like a piece of wire into a rose or rubble from a wrecked building into doves.
- Flight: Nyan can fly. Maximum speed 881km / h
- Size change: When Nyan becomes Ultra Nyan, he grows from the size of an ordinary cat to the size of a small child around Haruka's age.
- Mankiumu Ray: Nyan's Specium style beam ability. Fired from the beckoning cat pose.
- Telepathy: In the first short, Nyan entered Haruka's dreams and communicated with her, telling her where he came from and about his mission.
- Nyan Jump: Jumping land. Maximum altitude: 45m
- Nyan Dash: Land traveling. Maximum speed: 194km / h
- Nyan Swim: Water insidious. Maximum speed: 41km / h

Nyan's Tail Ring is the source of his powers, if it gets broken he becomes weak and must wait for it to regenerate before becoming Ultra Nyan. If it gets covered in a sticky substance (like tar in the second short) he cannot transform into UItra Nyan.
- Wonder Capsule - Ultraman Series 1 (2004)
- Release Date: November 20, 2004
- Price: 200 yen
- JAN/ISBN: TBA
- Material: PVC
- Released as part of the Wonder Capsule Ultraman Series lineup, this PVC figurine of Ultra Nyan is the secret figure of the line.
- He is the first animal to be an Ultra. The second is Gardi.
- He makes a cameo in Ultraman Tiga: The Final Odyssey, as a costume during a scene, but it has no relevance to the story.
- Unlike other Ultra series, Nyan does not fight monsters or aliens of any sort, instead his foes are more domestic and native to Earth.
- The tail ring being a weakness is similar to the Digimon Gatomon, who, while an Adult Level Digimon (Champion in the English Dub), was only as strong as a Child/Rookie Level without its tail ring.
