Trivia

  • The titles of most episodes are the same as their main series counterparts, with a few words added.
  • Episode 1 is a revised version of Ultraman Orb's pre-series Retrospective Special.
  • Unlike Ultraman Zero: The Chronicle before it, this series does not have an updated version of the star Ultra's theme song, until episode 8 was aired, where it used a new version of Orb no Inori featuring May J., who also sung the series' ending song HERO, and the theme song of Ultraman Geed The Movie.
  • At the time of its airing, there were essentially two separate runs of Ultraman Orb on Tsuburaya's YouTube Channel; this series, and the Mandarin dub of the main series for Taiwanese audiences.
  • This series references elements present in the Ultraman Orb Chronicle several times (For example, on the titles of episodes 8 and 9 are also lifted from the title of the 7th chapter of the Ultraman Orb Chronicle - "Chapter 7: 'Space Witch Mulnau's Counterattack, Sadeath's Return' (第7章「宇宙魔女賊ムルナウの逆襲・サデスの帰還」 Dai Nana-shō 'Uchū Majo Zoku Murunau no Gyakushū・Sadesu no Kikan')"
  • Episode 16's title extension, "Shibukawa's Long Day", was the initial title for the original episode.
  • In episode 21, the rerun of Ultra Fight Orb has many scenes that were cut out due to time restraints. The scenes are:
    • The many scenes where Gai sees visions of Emerium Slugger.
    • Zero's venture on Planet Yomi and the appearance of Juda Spectre before him.
    • The disappearance of the Giga Battle Nizer.
    • The entire epilogue.
    • Many other minor scenes.
