Ultraman is a Japanese Tokusatsu television series that first aired in 1966. Ultraman is a follow-up to the television series Ultra Q, though not technically a sequel or spin-off. The show was produced by the Tsuburaya Productions, and was broadcast on Tokyo Broadcasting System (TBS) from July 17, 1966 to April 9, 1967, with a total of 39 episodes (40, counting the pre-premiere special that aired on July 10, 1966).
Although Ultraman is the first series to feature an Ultra-Crusader, it is actually the second show in the Ultra Series. Ultra Q was the first. In fact, Ultraman opens with the Ultra Q logo exploding into the Ultraman logo. Ultraman ultimately became a major pop culture phenomenon in Japan. The show's success spawned dozens of sequels, spin-offs, imitators, parodies and remakes.

Ultraman Zero (ウルトラマンゼロ, Urutoraman Zero) is a fictional character from the Ultra Series. He first appeared in Mega Monster Battle: Ultra Galaxy before starring in his own film Ultraman Zero: The Revenge of Belial. Lacking a TV series of his own, he became the main navigator of Ultraman Retsuden/Shin Ultraman Retsuden and made guest appearances in subsequent Ultra Series media. Introduced as an energetic, boastful, and stubborn warrior, Zero was sent into banishment by Ultraseven after his failed attempt to steal the Plasma Spark. Zero was trained under Ultraman Leo and was forced to wear the Techtor Gear. When Ultraman Belial returned to the Land of Light and steal the Plasma Spark, Zero redeemed himself by defeating Belial and retrieving the Plasma Spark, at the same time learned of his origin as the son of Seven (セブンの息子, Sebun no Musuko). Although he retained his hotheaded traits, Zero slowly went through character development and matured as his roles in the Ultra Series progressed. After helping to defeat Belial's invasion attempt in another dimension, he founded Ultimate Force Zero (ウルティメイトフォースゼロ, Urutimeito Fōsu Zero), dedicating to protect the universe from evil threats and wiping out remnants of Belial's former army. Ultraman Zero is voiced by Mamoru Miyano (宮野 真守, Miyano Mamoru), whose known for his role as Setsuna F. Seiei in Mobile Suit Gundam 00. In tribute to his voice actor, Ultraman Zero utters his pre-battle catchphrase, “I am Zero, Ultraman Zero!” (俺がゼロ, ウルトラマンゼロ!, Ore ga Zero, Urutoraman Zero!), which is based on Setsuna's infamous line, “I am Gundam!”. In the English dub movies, he is voiced by Daniel Van Thomas.
