Ultraman Tiga (ウルトラマンティガUrutoraman Tiga?) is a Japanese tokusatsu TV show and is the 11th show in the Ultra Series. Produced by Tsuburaya Productions, Ultraman Tiga was aired at 6:00pm and aired between September 7, 1996 to August 30, 1997, with a total of 52 episodes with 4 movies (3 being crossovers, 1 a direct sequel to the series) After a franchise hiatus of over 15 years, set in a universe different from all previous series and updated with a new look and feel. Tiga is the first Ultraman with multiple combat modes and non-red colors.Ultraman Tiga was also dubbed in English by 4Kids Entertainment and broadcast in the United States as part of the Fox Boxprogramming block on Fox Broadcasting Company affiliates, the third Ultra Series to air in the United States.
Ultraman Tiga was the first full length Ultraman series in over 15 years since the airing of Ultraman 80 in 1980 and after the abandoned plans for an Ultraman Neos television series and created in part to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the series. This became the first Japanese Ultraman show to be set in its own continuity with no characters from previous shows appearing. Much of the mythology for the series is based on the Cthulhu universe.
Before production on the series began, Japan was experiencing an Ultraman boom with the release of the show on home video and recent movies. This prompted Bandai to begin what was called the Plan 99 strategy in which they hoped to advance the yearly revenues from Ultraman from 200 billionYen to 500 billion with the introduction of a new series on television.
Hiroshi Nagano, member of V6, a successful Japanese pop band, was selected as the lead in the series. Producers state that he had a refreshing aura and energy about him that children would enjoy and Nagano would later state that his time on the show allowed him to express the joys of youth to an entire generation of children. V6 would also provide the opening theme for the series entitled TAKE ME HIGHER. Due to Nagano's time commitments with V6, there were often scheduling conflicts involved in filming the series. The character of Daigo would often be taken off screen due to plot conveniences so that guest characters and members of GUTS would have the focus when Nagano was not available to film full time. This also allowed for many cast members from past shows to guest star as new characters.
The series was seen as reflecting the social condition and evolution of Japan and the world at the time. Tiga was the first series to have a woman as captain of the science team and be the senior character. Women were often portrayed as more competent than their Shouwa counterparts and rarely fell into the damsel in distress scenario. The lead female character, Megumi Rena, was also played by Mio Takagi, daughter of Ultraman star Susumu Kurobe.
Ultraman Tiga was the first series to implement the form change aspect of an Ultraman in where he can change his body's visual appearance to adjust himself to different battle situations. This was a change made from former series at the request of Bandai, who now had a greater hand in series production than in the past. Since the introduction of form changes, Ultraman Max has been the only series to not utilize them in some form.
The name Tiga comes from an Indonesian word for “three” which contains religious connotations. Series writer Chiaki Konoka also states that the name came about to symbolize change within the franchise.
A difficult pre-production period lead to the show having higher than usual production costs, leading to Tsuburaya needing to handle one-third of the costs.
The series suffered from a rushed production run that the crew were never able to surpass. A production announcement was made in May of 1996 with the series to air in September of the same year. The first episode of the series was finished in July of 1996, giving the crew an advantage of having only two or three episodes filmed ahead of schedule, behind the average of six to seven at the time.
Ultraman Tiga would go on to win the Nebula Award in Japan, honoring it as the best science fiction production of its year.
Set in the years 2007 (2049 in the U.S. dub) , giant monsters and conquering aliens start to appear, as was foretold by an apocalyptic prophecy about an uncontrollable chaos over the Earth. Facing the threat, the TPC (Terrestrial Peaceable Consortium) is created, such as its branch, GUTS (Global Unlimited Task Squad). Through a holographic message in a capsule found by researchers, the GUTS gets knowledge about a golden pyramid built by an ancient civilization. At the site, three statues of a race of giants who defended early human civilization on Earth about 30,000,000 years ago from Super-Ancient Monsters and other forces of darkness are found, but two of them are destroyed by the monsters Golza and Melba. The third one gains life from the spiritual energy of officer Daigo, descendant of the ancient race. Daigo and the remaining statue merge into a single being, made of light. Shortly after defeating the two monsters, Daigo is revealed by the hologram of the prophecy that 30 million years in the past, a great evil that not even the giants could stop, destroyed the ancient civilization. The same evil reappears in the finale of the series, the Ruler of Darkness Ghatanothoa, and his servants, Gijera and Zoigar. Ghatanothoa defeats Ultraman Tiga with ease, withstanding the Delcalium Light Stream and a modified version of the Zepellion Ray, both Tiga's finishes, and turns him back into a statue, but the light of humanity is able to turn him into Glitter Tiga, giving him the power to defeat Ghatanothoa and save the Earth.
However, Tiga's victory came at a cost. Daigo was no longer able to become Tiga after the Spark Lens disintegrated into dust after his final battle. It is ultimately revealed that Tiga, although no longer bound to Daigo, its energy now remains in the heart of all those who believe in Tiga, inner-strength and justice. Given the right conditions such as times of despair, the sparks will gather and Tiga statue will be revitalized.
In the movie "The Final Odyssey", set in two years after Tiga's final battle, Daigo was approached by a mysterious woman 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 Dark Tiga, the woman in gold 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 the weakest of the four, Tiga quickly became a target of the group. However, unbeknownst to the group, the original "talentless" Dark Tiga possessed the ability to absorb powers from fallen enemies. As he eliminated each of the three dark members, he absorbed their powers which explains new Tiga's color patterns (purple, red 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 again once again, survives his inner struggles and vanishes the darkness within.
GUTS (Global Unlimited Task Squad) is the "peace-keeping" force of the Tiga universe. A special investigation team of the TPC (Terrestrial PeaceableConsortium).
- Daigo Madoka/Ultraman Tiga (マドカ・ダイゴ／ウルトラマンティガMadoka Daigo/Urutoraman Tiga?)
- The main protagonist and the title character. Ultraman Tiga's human form, is passionately naïve, wide-eyed, eager, earnest and good-hearted with the right kind of DNA that makes him worthy of being Ultraman Tiga. He is Rena's love interest, and later becomes her husband. Though not necessarily physically strong or particularly bright, he accepts and embraces his destiny to be Ultraman Tiga and shows that Ultraman Tiga's strength comes from his very human courage, love and spirit. Prior to the series, Daigo was only an ordinary TPC officer, that belonged to the transport division. He was able to enter GUTS after he was recruited by General Sawai for being able to prevent General Sawai's kidnapping by an invader's UFO. He believes that humanity is not a weak existence that always repeats old mistakes, but can make a brighter future for future generations. He fights to protect humanity and the world as Ultraman Tiga based on that reason. Daigo is also different from other Ultraman Hosts, where he does not possess any supernatural ability like his predecessors and Ultraman Tiga also suffers the injuries Daigo sustains. Thus making them one entity, not separate beings. In episode 43, his transformation item, the Spark Lance, was stolen by Keigo Masaki. By this point, Daigo proved he is not invincible or a special existence, despite being able to transform into a giant of light and just a feeble human outside. Masaki, who is also a descendant from the ancient human race like Daigo, continues to manipulate the Spark Lance and change his body into light particles and merge with the giant statue he found. But, Masaki's greedy and selfish intentions turned and corrupted the new giant of light into Evil Tiga, a giant of darkness. Ultimately, Daigo was able to recover the Spark Lance and defeat Keigo Masaki/Evil Tiga with his very human feelings and strength. Daigo finally confesses his true identity as Ultraman Tiga to Rena in episode 50 and transforms in front of her. After trying hard to fight Ghatanothoa "the Ruler of Darkness", Ultraman Tiga was defeated and turned back into a lifeless statue. Seemingly, there was no hope left and even GUTS plan to bathe the Tiga Statue with light energy from Maxima Overdrive was foiled by Ghatanothoa. The children of earth who still had not lost their faith and hope, were finally able to revive Ultraman Tiga and awaken Daigo, who was trapped inside the statue, through their light to become Glitter Tiga. In the end, with Glitter Tiga's tremendous power, Daigo was able to defeat Ghatanothoa but lost his power and couldn't transform anymore when the Spark Lance turned into stone and faded away. However with this, Daigo tells Rena he believes that every human could also become light with their own power.

- Jun Yazumi (ヤズミ・ジュンYazumi Jun?)
- Rounding off the crew is young Yazumi, the communications and computer expert who goes out into the field even less than Captain Iruma.

- A world class top scientist. He is also a descendant of the ancient race, like Daigo, and bears similar DNA. He found another Ultraman statue in Kumamoto, similar to the ones that Tiga was imprisoned as. Masaki feels he has just as much right as Daigo to inherit the light and transcend his humanity to become god-like but the only thing he lacks is a transformation item, like Daigo's Spark Lens, to allow him to transform into the Ultraman. To prepare himself for what he feels is his birthright, Masaki has trained his body to be strong and powerful, and physically worthy of being an Ultraman. Masaki feels Daigo does not deserve the monopoly he has on the light, so Masaki beats an exhausted Daigo, who just defeated Geoshark, and thus acquires the transformation item he lacks. A stray dog leads Daigo to Masaki's base in a cavern, but Daigo is unable to talk Masaki out of it. Masaki places the stolen Spark Lens in a converter, which is protected by an electric barrier, changing his body into light particle and merging with the Ultraman statue. However he lacks the heart and has greedy and selfish intention, thus corrupting the new giant of light into a giant of darkness, Evil Tiga, and causing him to start rampaging into the city. Ultimately, Daigo able to recover the Spark Lens as he forces himself to endure the electricity and is able to break through by force of will to the Spark Lens. After a bitter fight, Tiga gains the upper hand and wounds Evil Tiga enough that he can fire his Zepellion Beam, vaporising his corrupted counterpart. While sharing most of Tiga's powers, Evil Tiga also shared his weakness of only being able to remain on Earth for a certain period of time. Its unknown if Evil Tiga can switch forms like Tiga can, due to the short period of time in which he appeared. While Evil Tiga was destroyed, Keigo survived and was captured by authorities. In the end of the series, Keigo returned to help GUTS revive Ultraman Tiga after his defeat at Gatanozoa's hands, in order to redem his misdeeds. While GUTS kept Gatanozoa busy, Keigo went down in a submarine and used a beam of light in an attempt to revive the hero and while Gatanozoa stopped him, Keigo's attempt revived Daigo deep inside the statue, allowing him to see the children of the world call out to him and use their light to revive Tiga as Glitter Tiga.
- Makio Kirino (キリノ・マキオKirino Makio?)
- A man with extraordinary ability who is able to predict future events and communicate with others through telepathy. Thanks to this ability, he knew Daigo's identity as Ultraman Tiga. He became jealous of Daigo, because Daigo/Ultraman Tiga was praised as a hero with his "extraordinary power", while Makio himself was seen by others as a monster. Makio then blackmailed Daigo to play games with him and told him to defeat the monster Galra without transforming, and even threatened to reveal Daigo's identity as Ultraman Tiga to the world if he lost or transformed against the rules. But after seeing Daigo's eagerness to protect Rena, he is touched and redeemed himself by telling Daigo Galra's weak spot, so he could finally defeat it.

Eventually Ghatanothoa's reign over the Earth ended when he and his followers went into hibernation.

Even though Ultraman Tiga stood in his way, he was no match for the Ruler of Darkness who turned him back to stone. However, the light of humanity revive Ultraman Tiga as Glitter Tiga who finally killed Ghatanothoa, completely obliterating him with a blast of energy from his color timer.

The studio featured is actually Tsuburaya Productions, however, the glitzy corporate office building is not.
