A human member of a defense force is given the life and ability to change into a giant super-hero to battle the monsters that wrecks havoc on Earth.
As is the case with his previous series, Urutora Q (1965), series creator Eiji Tsuburaya uses and redecorates famous Toho monsters for the show. Baragon (from Frankenstein Conquers the World (1965)), who was also used in aforementioned series (as the monster Pagos), was used as monsters Neronga in Episode 3 ("Sally Forth, Science Patrol!") and Gabora in Episode 9 ("Operation Lightining Speed"). And the King of the Monsters himself, Godzilla (who was also used as the monster Gomess in the first episode of Q), was used as the frillnecked lizard monster Jirass in Episode 10 ("The Mysterious Dinosaur Base"). Using the body of the "Mosu-Goji" suit and the head of the "Daisensô-Goji" suit, Godzilla/Jirass was fitted with a frill collar around his neck, as well as a minor paint job. This was because the script called for a lizard monster, so Eiji said, "Okay, then, let's use a Godzilla suit!"
Using his beta capsule, Hayata becomes Ultraman!
During the show's opening credits, black silhouettes of the show's various characters (Ultraman, some of the show's monsters, and the Science Patrol logo) are shown against a colorful smoky background. In the US version, most of the silhouettes are featured, sans credits.
