Ultraman Tiga: The Final Odyssey (ウルトラマンティガ THE FINAL ODYSSEY Urutoraman Tiga Za Fainaru Odesei?) is a tokusatsu movie that released in 2000. The movie is a direct sequel to the original Ultraman Tiga television series, serving as an epilogue to the events between Tiga and the successor series, Ultraman Dyna. A TPC excursion (including GUTS' Captain Megumi Iruma) headed to an old ruins and unintentionally woke up three evil ancient giants whom Daigo, later on, has visions of. What's so haunting about his visions is that they're not only three but four evil giants, including Ultraman Tiga in a very dark physique and a very evil aura. After a series of visions, Daigo was able to meet the three evils who beat him up and left the Black Spark Lens to him. Later on, the ultimate battle begins in the ancient ruins. Daigo as Ultraman Tiga, who is supposed to be the warrior of light, must use his powers, however dark, in order to defeat the three evils.

Plot

This section requires expansion.

Set in two years after Tiga's final battle, Daigo was approached by a mysterious woman, Camearra, who possessed a dark version of the Spark Lens. It is then revealed that more than 30,000,000 years ago, Tiga was originally evil in nature, part of a group of four that dominated Earth. The group consisted of Tiga Dark, the woman in yellow (Camearra) with telepathic abilities, an evil Ultraman in red with superhuman strength, and another in purple with superhuman speed. One day, Tiga fell in love with a local human, and decided to convert from darkness to protect her from harm. Being the weakest of the four, Tiga quickly became a target of the group. However, unbeknownst to the group, the original "talentless" Tiga Dark possessed the ability to absorb powers from fallen enemies. As he eliminated each of the three dark members and sealed them away, he absorbed their powers which explains new Tiga's color patterns (red, purple, and gold lined with his original silver). Convinced by his ability to convert the last known Spark Lens to good, Daigo accepts the gift and becomes Tiga once again, survives his inner struggles and vanishes the darkness within. After leaving the Black Spark Lens in the hands of the dying Camearra, he eventually marries Rena Yanase, fellow GUTS member and longtime love interest. This was Daigo's last battle as Tiga. (Shin Asuka has also appeared at the last scene as Daigo was leaving Earth, he was the guy who greeted him).

Trivia

  • In Daigo's flashback in the start of the movie (many battles which Daigo/Tiga has fought 2 years ago), Ultraman Tiga's grunts was re-dubbed by Hiroshi Nagano's instead of using Yuji Machi's. This is due to Yuji's contract ended and he was replaced by Hiroshi Nagano since this movies until The Super 8 Ultra Brothers. This gave Tiga's voice a smoother transition between grunts and dialogue.
  • In this movie, Ultraman Tiga's grunts and voices were provided by Hiroshi Nagano in conjunction with Daigo's speaking voice but when the movie was featured in episode 8 of Shin Ultraman Retsuden, Tiga's scene was re-dubbed with Yuji Machi's grunts instead. 
  • This movie and Great Decisive Battle! The Super 8 Ultra Brothers were the only time that both Tiga's speaking voice and grunts were voiced by Hiroshi Nagano. 
  • Nearing the end of the movie Daigo and Rena are departing for research studies on Mars. Daigo and Rena walk down a hallway with other members of the research team behind them. A junior walks the opposite direction and takes off his hat and bows to Daigo and Rena. That junior is Shin Asuka, the human host of Ultraman Dyna
  • At the end, right after Daigo met Asuka for the first time, he said, 'Good luck, junior' under his breath. This was a passing the torch scene. 
  • This movie is a prequel to Ultraman Dyna.
  • Ultra Nyan makes a cameo appearance, as an amusement park mascot.
  • This movie was Daigo's last battle as Ultraman Tiga. (Great Decisive Battle! The Super 8 Ultra Brothers doesn't count)
