Ultraman Rosso (ウルトラマンロッソ Urutoraman Rosso) is one of the two main heroes of Ultraman R/B, and is the elder brother of Ultraman Blu.

Etymology

His name means "Red" in Italian, which refers to his main form's body color being red.

History

Pre-Ultraman R/B

RBVSGrugeo

Rosso and Blu lose to Grigio Bone

1300 years ago, a meteor crashed down in what became Ayaka City, making a massive crater and unleashed Grigio Bone. The R/B brothers fought it, but they lost, scattering the R/B Crystals.

Ultraman R/B

In the present day, Rosso and Blu return to fight Grigio Bone again, as as well as other monsters summoned by a mysterious enemy, through the Minato brothers - Katsumi and Isami.

Profile

Stats

  • Height: 52 m
  • Weight: 45,000 t
  • Weakness: Like all Ultras, Rosso is subjected to the three-minutes limit. On occasion, he will revert back to human form even when the time is not up. It also appears that, like the Riser, the R/B Gyro has to cooldown before Katsumi can transform again.

Body Features

  • Color Timer (カラータイマー Karā Taimā): Rosso possesses a circle shaped Color Timer.
  • Ultra Armor: Rosso has the standard Ultra Armor.
  • Protectors (プロテクター Purotekutā): Rosso possess protectors on his chest area that represents the element of the form he is in.

Transformation

Katsumi takes an R/B Crystal from the R/B Crystal Holder and flips out the side horns of the crystal. He then inserts the crystal and the R/B Gyro opens. The Gyro is placed at chest level and the handles are pulled twice. Katsumi then thrusts the Gyro forward and pulls the handles one last time and places the Gyro on his chest, before transforming utilizing the elemental power of the crystal. When swapping crystals with Isami, instead of getting the crystal from the holder, the new crystal will appear and fall from above. The same sequence continues afterwards.

Trivia

  • Although fired from a common Ultra Beam position, the Flame Sphere Shoot takes the form of an energy ball. This means Rosso is the second Ultraman overall not to have a traditional Ultra Beam. He is preceeded only by Ultraman Great.
  • When injured, Rosso appears to bleed red, rather than the light-like blood of most Ultras. This is likely a reference to Ultraman Taro, who Rosso gains his powers from, bleeding after being injured by Birdon.
  • Rosso pointed out on Zero that his Zero Sluggers resembles cat ears, to which Blu also agreed. This is ironic, as it was Rosso's crests that have such resemblance.
