Ultraman Zearth (ウルトラマンゼアス Urutoraman zeasu?) and Ultraman Zearth 2: Superhuman Giant Battle - Light and Shadow (ウルトラマンゼアス2 超人大戦 光と影 Urutoraman zeasu 2 chōjin taisen hikatokage?) are two Ultraman movies produced by Tsuburaya Productions in 1996 and 1997 respectively. The first movie was released as a celebration of Tsuberaya's 30th anniversary, as part of the Ultraman Wonderful World project. Both movies feature many homages to previous series, including some of the members of the original Science Patrol from Ultraman. It is succeeded by Ultraman Tiga.

Trivia/NotesEdit

  • Actors/Actresses from previous Ultraman series made cameos in 2 movies:
    • Arashi is a helicopter reporter (which is not too far from what he currently does in real life). In Ultraman Zearth, Hayata is a night watchman (who holds his flashlight up like a Beta Capsule) and in Ultraman Zearth 2 he is a common citizen who tries to transform into Ultraman with a spoon (echoing Hayata's performance from episode 34), Fuji (the only woman who ever catches the MYDO plane taking off from a secret base exit, which happens to be a billboard), Ide (as a photographer), and Captain Muramatsu, as a fisherman. In Ultraman Zearth 2, Ide shows up as the fisherman's son with the a photograph of his dad (actor Akiji Kobayashi, who played Captain Muramatsu, died between films). And finally, in Ultraman Zearth 2, we are treated to a rare cameo reappearance of Jiro Dan, who played Hideki Goh from Return of Ultraman as a telecast reporter on TV.
  • ​Product placement:
    • Movie 1: An Ultra Hero Series Ultraman, a larger Ultraman Taro figure, & a Sound Battler Ultraman Powered figure is shown in the beginning of the movie.
    • Movie 2: An Ultra Hero Series Ultraman Zearth figure is shown being wielded by Lady Benzene, only to be stomped by it.
