Ultra warriors

Ultraman Powered (ウルトラマンパワード, Urutoraman Pawādo?) was the second Ultraman to be made outside of Japan (The series he headlined was called Ultraman: The Ultimate Hero in the United States). His story is very similar to the original Ultraman, as the series was an American adaptation of the original Ultraman series. The monsters are the same, but with different, more "realistic" designs. He came into contact with his human host, Kenichi Kai, when Kenichi was investigating Powered's crashed ship. He is the sworn enemy of the Baltan Aliens.

History

Ultraman: The Ultimate Hero

Ultraman Powered was on a mission to bring down the Baltan Aliens, an empire that brought death and destruction to countless worlds. Soon his hunt came to Earth, where he proved to be unable to survive without a human host. Choosing a suitable host, the young member of the World Investigation Network Response, Kenichi Kai (Kane Kosugi), Ultraman Powered brought the fight to the giant Baltan rampaging through the city.

The fight was fast and brief, but brutal, as the two knocked one another across the streets and into the buildings around them. As the other members of WINR watched on, the fight took to the sky and then back to the streets, where Baltan tried its best to bring down Ultraman. But the hero would not fail and launched the Mega-Specium Ray, a weapon so powerful it completely vaporized the Baltan.

While this threat was over, the mission of protecting Earth had just begun. While the Baltans retreated and re-planned, more monsters, some native and others alien to the Earth, began to rise. With the help of WINR, Ultraman Powered would put an end to the reign of several giant monsters and got in the middle of many battles between creatures such as Aboras and Banila. But as his adventures continued on, the Baltans soon returned. Watching over every battle with cruel eyes, they created a monster designed to dissect the hero: Dorako. The monster not only handed Ultraman his first defeat, but threatened millions of lives. As the winged creature rampaged, Kai again summoned Powered, but ultimately, it was a battle that would permanently end their bond.

Dorako’s sharp blade cut through Ultraman Powered's chest, and while ultimately the hero managed to kill the fiend, something unexpected had happened: Kai also felt the wound and pain! Hospitalized, Kai’s wounds healed quickly, but the hero refused to put his host in any such danger again. He parted with Kai and headed directly for the WINR base to confront the final monster: Zetton.

With the base in ruins, Powered tried his best to vanquish it before his energy ran out, but it was futile. After his normal attacks failed, he quickly fired away his Mega-Specium Ray, but Zetton either reflected or shrugged off each blast. As the final seconds ticked, Ultraman fired one last time at Zetton’s weakened body, and it finally gave out. The alien menace was destroyed, but with his power depleted, Ultraman was doomed.

He fell unconscious, his body lying helpless as WINR confronted the Baltan ship head-on. However, descending from the sky, two orbs came and rescued the crew and destroyed the invasion force before gathering up Powered's body. Now three orbs flew back into space, possibly to return in the future.

Mega Monster Battle: Ultra Galaxy Legends The Movie

UltramanPowered,Great,andBarbaraUltras

Powered, Great and the Ultra Force about to fight against Belial.

After Ultraman Belial was freed from his prison, he went to the Land of Light with a weak Ultraman Taro. All the Ultras were already waiting for Belial to arrive, after Belial showed the Ultras that he defeated Taro, Ultraman Powered immediately along many Ultramen charged against Belial to fight him. At a certain point during the fight, Powered uses his Mega Specium Ray against Belial, but he blocked it by using Ultrawoman Beth as a shield, and then Belial fired a blast of energy from the Giga-Battlenizer against Powered, hurting him and defeating him. After defeat almost Ultramen in the Land of Light, Belial stolen the Plasma Spark, which make the Land of Light quickly freezes over, as well as all of its denizens, including Powered as well (except Ultraman and Ultraseven survive by defending themselves at the last moment). In the ending, after the Plasma Spark was recovered, every Ultra, including Powered , was seen listening to Ultraman King's speech. Powered was seen along The Ultra Force, Ultraman Great and Ultraman Max

Ultraman Powered's rise

Flash Prism/Beta Capsule: Kenichi Kai transforms into Powered by using an item known as the Flash Prism, or a second Beta Capsule in the English version. Much like how Shin Hayata transformed into the original Ultraman, but unlike Hayata, Kai clenches his "beta capsule" in his fist before transforming into Powered. After Powered separated from Kai for the final battle with Zetton, WINR used the abandoned device to attack the Alien Baltan ship.

Trivia

  • Ultraman Powered is the first Ultra to have blue-colored eyes.
    Powered's rise

    Powered's rise with white eyes

    • He is also the only Ultra whose eyes can also change depending on his energy level.
    • Ultraman Powered's eyes are normally blue but in his rise, his eyes were white instead.
  • Ultraman Powered is the only Ultra that almost never made grunts in battle. The only times when he grunted was when he fired his Mega Specium Ray to Alien Baltan in episode 1 and when he flies away after every battle. And his grunts are just reused sound bites from the Original Ultraman.
  • Ultraman Powered's color timer sound was a high pitched version of Ultraman's.
  • Both in English and Japanese-dub, Ultraman Powered's talking voice provided by Sho Kosugi - who is Kane Kosugi's father, who plays Kenichi Kai in the series.
    • However, Powered's grunts in combat is voiced by Kane Kosugi in the English version.
  • Ultraman Powered's Mega Specium Ray is the second ray fired from both hands at the same time, the first was Ultraman Taro's Storium Ray.
  • Ultraman Powered's rising sound is a modified and high pitched Ultraman Ace's rising sound.
  • Due to the high cost of producing the costumes, the American Producers were concerned that they'd be damaged in a violent fight scene. As such, Powered has some of the weakest fight choreography in the entire Ultra franchise, consisting mostly of the actors nudging each other and SFX attacks with minimal physical contact. Hence, this is one of the key downsides to this series.
  • Ultraman Powered's fight with Dada is the only times his Color Timer didn't blink.
  • Ultraman Powered's Costume was reused for an unnamed petrified giant of light in 'Ultraman Tiga: The Final Odyssey .
  • Ultraman Powered, although he appeared in the Mega Monster Battle film, he didn't appear in its sequel Ultraman Zero The Movie: The Revenge of Belial. The only non-canon Ultras to appear are Ultraman Max and Ultraman Xenon.
  • Dorako is the only monster in Ultraman: The Ultimate Hero to make Ultraman Powered retreat.
  • He is the only Ultra to fight his last battle without his host.
  • He is the second Ultra whose series ended with the ultra being defeated.
    • Interesting enough, the first one was the original Ultraman, and the monster who defeated them both was Zetton.
      • Also to note, the Baltans were the one who created the Zetton that defeated Powered, the same aliens who later created the Zetton in Ultraman: THE FIRST manga.
