Game ModesEdit

Ultra ModeEdit

This is the main story mode. The player battles as the Ultra Warriors in stories identical to TV show episodes and movies.

The game features a ranking system, in which depending on how well the player completed the stage, they will be awarded a rank, with D being the worst rank and S being the best rank. Each stage has its own health and time remaining requirement, that when completed boosts the rank. Two other special tasks must be completed to achieve an S Rank. Lots of stages include more than 2 special tasks, meaning there are multiple ways to get an S rank for each stage. Some of these tasks can achieve an S rank immediately, regardless of any other special tasks or the health and time requirements.

Errors & GoofsEdit

  • Glitter Tiga's Glittering Shield in this game is full of gold, like in The Final Odyssey, while in the series, the Glittering Shield is solely and just like Multi Type. It could be for anyone to not mistake Glitter Tiga for Multi Type like in the series.
  • Ultraman Dyna can only change into either Miracle Type or Strong Type by transforming from Flash Type. However, in this game Ultraman Dyna can change between all types without needing to change back to Flash Type.
  • Dyna's battle theme plays the Strong Type theme instead.
  • Ultraman Cosmos shouldn't be able to transform from Luna Mode straight to Eclipse Mode. Corona Mode was later featured in Ultraman Fighting Evolution Rebirth. This is most likely because of the limited hardware from the console.
  • Ultraman Cosmos' grunts are reused from Eclipse Mode.
  • Ace Killer has grunts.
  • Zoffy's grunts in the game are the same as Father of Ultra's ones. While in the series, his grunts are the same as Ultraman's.
  • When Jack used beam attacks, the sound effect of Ultraman's Specium Ray was heard instead of Ultraseven's Emerium Ray like in the series.
  • Ultraman Dyna Strong Type can uses Hand Slash as an energy ability like Ultraman Tiga while in the series, he has yet to perform this ability until now.
  • Agul's fighting stance in the game was an "arrogant" standing position. While in the series, his fighting stance was similar to Gaia's.
  • In Ultraman's story mode mission, "Farewell, Ultraman", when Ultraman goes into Zoffy's Travel Sphere, Ultraman's Color Timer is blue, despite having his energy drained by Zetton. This is only when Zoffy is the one who defeats Zetton.
  • Fire Golza's Empowered Ultrasonic Ray finisher is purple instead of yellow whereas the purple color supposed to be his normal version's beam color not the Fire version.
    • He also uses roars from regular Golza.

Special highlights of the gameEdit

  • In the story mode of Ultraman, depending on what conditions are met, Zetton will either be destroyed by the Science Patrol or confronted by Zoffy. Either way, while playing as Ultraman, you must intentionally lose to Zetton.
  • This game has the most number of playable characters among the five Ultraman Fighting Evolution games in the series.
  • None of the Western Ultramen (Ultraman Great, and Ultraman Powered) were featured in this game.
  • None of the Anime Ultramen from The ☆ Ultraman or Ultraman USA (Ultraman Chuck, Ultraman Scott, Ultraman Jonias, and Ultrawoman Beth) were featured in this game.
