The Ultraman Tiga series includes 52 episodes along with the special Ultraman Tiga Side Story: Revival of the Ancient Giant. Premiering in 1996, Ultraman Tiga was the first new Ultraman Japanese television series in fifteen years. Tiga was also the first transforming Ultraman, with three body types each with their own unique abilities. The story begins early in the 21st century as the Global Unlimited Task Squad (GUTS) deciphers an ancient prophecy regarding the return of two horrifying monsters the menaced the world thirty million years ago. As predicted, the two beasts reappear, demolishing everything in their path. As GUTS battle the monsters in the Land of Tiga, they discover a Pyramid of Light containing statues of three gigantic Ultra Warriors. Daigo, the GUTS Team’s most daring young fighter, becomes joined with one of the Ancient Ultra Warriors. The mighty Ultraman Tiga is reborn! Now when danger strikes, Daigo holds aloft the Sparklence and transforms into Ultraman Tiga!

Seven years after the events of Ultraman Tiga, humanity has embarked on the Neo Frontier project of building settlements throughout the solar system. When the Martian settlement is attacked without warning by an immense insect-like monster, a colossal Tiga-like humanoid appears to battle the beast. The new warrior is Ultraman Dyna, a being of light who was born after a light merged with Agent Asuka of the Super GUTS Team to wage war against the marauding aliens and monsters who threaten humankind. Dyna and Tiga would eventually join forces in the theatrical movie, Warriors of the Star of Light.
