Ultraman Dyna (ウルトラマンダイナ Urutoraman Daina?) is a Japanese tokusatsu TV show which aired between 6 September 1997 until 29 August 1998. The series is a direct sequel to the previous Ultraman series, Ultraman Tiga. The catchphrase of this series is "See The Explosive Power of the Ultimate Hot Battle !" (究極の爆発力!熱い闘いを見ろ! Kyūkyoku no bakuhatsu-ryoku! Atsui tatakai o miro!?).

PlotEdit

In the year 2017 (9 years after the final episode of Ultraman Tiga), TPC has advanced beyond earth, and has created a new GUTS team, "Super GUTS". Humans have begun terra-forming Mars and other planets in what is known as the "Age of the Neo Frontier". One day, however, the Neo Frontier is attacked by an alien race known as the Spheres. Shin Asuka has just joined Super GUTS and is in the middle of training maneuvers above Earth's atmosphere when he and his comrades are attacked. He proves himself in battle, and can hold his own against ace pilot Ryoh. However, his ship is damaged and he ejects, after which he encounters a shining light. It is then that a new giant of light merges with the bewildered Asuka, saving his life. When the Spheres enter Mars' atmosphere and merge with the Martian rocks to form monsters, Asuka again participates in the battle, now equipped with a mysterious device known as the "Reflasher". Upon the Sphere's new attack, Asuka suddenly transforms into a colossal giant, and manages to protect Mars from a group of monsters sent by the Spheres. The members of Super GUTS quickly catch on that this giant being is not Ultraman Tiga, but a new giant of light, "Ultraman Dyna". In contrast to the serious tone of Ultraman Tiga, Ultraman Dyna is a far more light hearted show, featuring more upbeat stories and comical character personalities for its cast.

The final story arc is rather somber, in contrast to the rest of the series. Dyna/Asuka apparently sacrifice themselves to save the Earth from Gran Sphere, the planet-sized mother form of the Spheres. In the series finale, we do get to see that Asuka rejoins his father as they ride off toward the light in their two spaceships, though the fate of Dyna / Asuka and Asuka's father remains unknown. Eleven years after the end of the television series, the movie Mega Monster Battle: Ultra Galaxy is intended as a direct follow-up for Dyna / Asuka after events of the Dyna series finale. It is revealed that the wormhole resulting from Gran Sphere's destruction transported him to the M78 universe, where the film takes place. At the end of the movie, as the featured ZAP SPACY members require help back to Earth, Dyna / Asuka decides to direct them home personally. They are shown disappearing into a self-made wormhole together.

Also in the film of Ultraman Saga, it was revealed that the Mars had successfully colonized by humans with a new Super GUTS member Taiga appeared as he is unintentionally kidnapped by a mysterious spaceship pilot by Alien Bat as he finally regains his trust on Ultraman while becoming Ultraman Zero and fights along with Dyna and Cosmos against a new threat. Asuka also briefly returns to his universe, telling his friends that Taiga still lives and resides a new universe while vanishes into light and bids them farewell.

It is unclear if the Dyna that participated in the Dark Spark War in Ultraman Ginga is the same Dyna from the Tiga Universe.

Super GUTSEdit

Main article: Super GUTS: Super Global Unlimited Task Force

Super GUTS is a branch of TPC (Terrestrial Peaceable Consortium) and is the direct successor to GUTS.

  • Gousuke Hibiki (ヒビキ・ゴウスケ Hibiki Gōsuke?): The team captain. He is loud and boisterous, often joking with his subordinates and shouting orders. At the same time, however, he is a caring leader with a good heart and good intentions for Super GUTS.
  • Shin Asuka/Ultraman Dyna (アスカ・シン/ウルトラマンダイナ Asuka Shin/Urutoraman Daina?): Ultraman Dyna's human host. He is light-hearted overall, and is one of the rare Ultra human hosts who also serves as the comic relief of the show. Asuka often whines and pouts immaturely, and sometimes pretends that he is killed in combat just to see his teammates freak out. Asuka is not all just fun and games, though. He can also be headstrong and overly courageous. His well-known motto is "Never give up." Asuka's dad disappeared years ago when his space ship disappeared into a mysterious light, which Asuka himself enters alongside his father in the final episode. In the end, Asuka ended up transported to the Showa timeline. Despite his personality, Asuka is an exceptional fighter, fending off aliens far stronger than normal humans with only his hand to hand combat skills.
  • Ryo Yumimura (ユミムラ・リョウ Yumimura Ryō?): The tomboy ace pilot of Super GUTS, who has a short temper and often yells at Asuka for his goof ball antics and recklessness. They have a pilot rivalry going on. However, deep down inside she likes the guy, they do like each other, which becomes quite clear toward the end. She also plays a big sister role for the less experienced Mai. Ryoh is slightly cross-eyed, which add charm for her.
  • Toshiyuki Kohda (コウダ・トシユキ Kōda Toshiyuki?): The cool and slick haircut guy who is eventually promoted to Dept. Captain.
  • Mai Midorikawa (ミドリカワ・マイ Midorikawa Mai?): A cute, bubbly, loud cadet-type with little combat experience. She mostly serves as the communication person, but she has multiple crushes (baseball players, cute exploratory robots, bike racers, etc.), gets peoples' attention by saying 'neh-neh-neh,' and has the amazing ability to hide multiple items behind her back, only to whip them out in rapid succession.
  • Tsutomu Nakajima (ナカジマ・ツトム Nakajima Tsutomu?): The pudgy technician and researcher of the Super GUTS team, often becomes panicked or overly serious.
  • Kouhei Kariya (カリヤ・コウヘイ Kariya Kōhei?): An expert of shooting of the Super GUTS and is well versed in archaeology.
  • Hanejiro (ハネジロー Hanejirō?): A strange alien which Asuka befriended on a mission to mysterious planet, it first helped Asuka (as Dyna) by pointing out a monster's weak spot during a battle, and was since made Super GUTS' "mascot" of sorts. Bids farewell to Super GUTS in Episode 47, but returns in the Dyna movie "Return of Hanejiro".
