Ultraman Lightning, formerly known as Adam, is an Ultra who mysteriously gained electric powers when he fell into a massive storm on a distant planet.

He is the main hero of his series.

PersonalityEdit

It's sometimes hard to convince Lightning to do things, but once he puts his mind to something, there's no stopping him. Despite his ambition, he is easily distracted, as even small observations can cause his whole train of thought to derail and him to physically mess up.

Lightning has a soft spot for natural kaiju and won't kill them unless they are truly evil, but flies into a rage when his allies are hurt. He greatly respects Ultras who have defended Earth in the past, considering them his superiors even with his unique powers.

He also has an elaborate sense of humor, finding it particularly funny when enemies are beaten by their own tactics. If an alien puts Lightning in a situation that could easily go wrong, he will make it go wrong, as Alien Tilt Vahta and Alien Nackle Versaille learned the hard way.

Initially, Lightning was completely clueless about human life, functions and customs, although he managed to learn the basics from his teammates in CAKE. When Lightning first came to Earth, he would rather be anywhere else. Then he saw what it was really like. He’s a tourist in a strange foreign country, and wants to see all he can, but won’t let that distract him from his job as guardian of the Earth.

HistoryEdit

Lightning was born Adam, the son of two high-ranking Space Rangers. He was born with a crest weapon like his mom, Ultrawoman Tetra, and arm blades like his dad, Ultraman Magnus. Although born with one detachable slugger, by training with his mother, Adam eventually learned to use Ultra Psychokinesis to conjure a pair of additional sluggers from his arm blades.

Ultra Fight Adam Edit

Newly graduated from the Space Ranger Academy and having just received his Color Timer Ring, Adam's first mission assigned him as part of a squad sent to Planet Grom, a massive gas giant. Their goal was to defeat Alien Helix Deox, a mad scientist seeking to amass an army of genetically-amplified monsters.

Led by Ultraman, Ultraman Taro and Ultraman 80, the Ultras broke into Deox's satellite base. There, Adam and several allies battled against and defeated Deox's various alien generals and their monsters, with help from a Zandrias that Adam himself freed from the aliens' capture. Adam would ultimately end up destroying the core of the base, however, Deox had escaped.

As a last resort, Deox commanded several of his Helix Hunter machines to combine into the super robot monster Helixtreme, which materialized on one of Groms' moons. Adam and his allies battled Helixtreme to a standstill until it made the fateful mistake of killing Zandrias.

Enraged, Adam tackled Helextreme and flew it into the Great Vortex, a storm several times the size and intensity of the Great Red Spot. There, the robot was reduced to scrap by the intense winds and storms. Adam was caught in the storm too, but instead of being killed, his body was altered.

The Ultras who Adam had joined on the mission promptly contacted the Space Garrison HQ in an attempt to rescue him. He would ultimately be found floating in Grom's orbit. Adam awoke in a Silver Cross hospital to discover that his red markings had become black and he bore yellow patterns. After his release, Adam discovered his electric powers. He needed special instruction to learn how to control them, and got them from Ultraman Mebius.

After he had gotten used to his powers, and reaffirmed his parents that everything was fine, Adam decided to change his name to Ultraman Lightning, and he was soon sent on a mission to Earth when an age of monsters popped up.

Ultraman Lightning, Legacy, Blizzard: Baron of Darkness Edit

After an encounter with Alien Nackle Versaille, Lightning was suddenly thrown into Ultraman Blizzard's world, where the two elemental ultras had to team up with Ultraman Legacy to defeat not only a more powerful version of one of Lightning's deadliest foes, but also a nightmarish fusion beast.

Ultraman Lightning: Aftershocks Edit

Deox was defeated, but the Age of Monsters was still in full swing. Lightning stole acquired a brand new form to fight increasingly deadly foes, culminating in him coming face to face with the mastermind behind his past enemies.

Ultra Hero Taisen 2 Edit

Lightning appeared in this sequel to Ultra Hero Taisen! as one of the main characters.

At an unknown point before the events of the story, Lightning along with his parents were sucked up by a portal and brought into a large area with multiple Ultras. Lightning was inexplicably reverted into the form of Adam, as well as having his Eye Slugger disappear, causing him great distress, although he was reassured by his father while his mother complained about them never listening to her anymore. Soon the announcer of the Great Taisen revealed to the Ultras what was going on and sent out armies of monsters for them to slaughter.

After the first round, Adam was reunited with Blizzard, although it was confusing at first since both of their appearances had changed since they last met. The two of them also met Ultraseven AX, with Adam being the latest of many people to mistake him for Zero. More Ultras soon approached them, forging a plan to end the Great Taisen halfway through.

Round 2 soon started and the Ultras got in pairs. The group stayed close and finished off their foes with combined beams causing a massive cloud, giving off the illusion that all Ultras but Zora, Junior and Yugo had been destroyed by their own beams. However, this was all part of their plan, as the group used the smoke as cover to fly up to the barrier surrounding the planet and attempt to destroy it, only for a random portal to suck them up and drop them in a strange building. The group decided to explore the castle, eventually finding the doors to a throne room. Adam grabbed the knob to open the door, causing a discharge of static electricity which turned him back into Lightning, much to his approval.

The Fight King greeted the Ultras to his castle before summoning several Yorjimborgs to eliminate them, he also introduced his partner in crime to them, Ultimate, who suddenly destroyed all of the robots, revealing himself to be a double agent and the source of the portal that brought them to the castle. Fight King tried teleporting all the Ultras to different parts of the castle, but Ultimate undid it twice before giving the group immunity to it. However, during the teleportations, Lightning had seen that they had many more Yorjimborgs in storage.

Fight King then attempted to fight the group, but together they were too much for him, with Lightning himself even absorbing and negating the villain's strongest attack. Fight King was injured by a combo beam from the Ultras and retreated afterward. As they were safe for now, Ultimate after some horrifying trial and error gave them all Super Hyper Ultimate Watches to let them switch Phase Frequencies.

The group split up and Lightning alongside Blizzard, Prime and Aegis found a massive room filled with inactive Yorjimborgs. Upon switching Phase Frequencies they saw a manufacturing line. They were soon stopped by Ibilhakas and his Yorjimborg EXs that easily overpowered Lightning and Blizzard. However thanks to Heckari and Star finding the weapon room, they regained Lightning's Attacker Armor, Blizzard's Riser V2, and presumably Lightning's Slugger, although he didn't need it now.

Ultraman Mebius Returns: Burning Heart, Freezing Heart Edit

Lightning will have a minor role in this special.

Into Ultra Space Edit

Shortly after Lightning's departure from Earth, Onyx returned, having merged with Necrozma and created many portals between universes. Lightning and various other heroes were dragged into Ultra Space, and had to survive hordes of Ultra Beasts and Necronyx's true power to escape.

Children of Tiga: Attack on Glacier Edit

Soon after his adventure in Ultra Space, Lightning found himself pursuing Shadow Servant Waroga between worlds. They eventually got back to Lightning's home universe, upon which Lightning discovered the fiend had met up with its master on Planet Glacier. Logically, Lightning investigated, upon which he finally met the Ultra his teacher told him about and two completely new faces, one of which he didn't know, but had actually met before (though it got retconned.)

Ultraman Lightning: Revenge of the Black Star Edit

After leaving Planet Glacier behind, Lightning was confronted by two past friends of Onyx, the Black Brothers, who had revived all the Saucer Beasts. He also showed himself to be borderline incapable of working together with Ultraman Geed. Soon Leo and Astra got involved and forced the two into a harsh regiment that ultimately paid off with both of them receiving not only a new form, but also an upgraded version of one of their past ones. Defeating all the remaining Saucer Beasts, they would have confronted the Black Brothers themselves had Onyx not appeared to rescue them. He stated that his final gambit against the Ultras would soon commence before disappearing once more.

Ultraman Junior: Invasion of the Light Edit

Immediately after their return to the Land of Light, Lightning and Geed were faced with an inter dimensional crisis. TBA

Battle Against the Great Anathium Plague Edit

Lightning was among the Ultras who joined forces to battle against the Anathium Emperor. Afterwards, a bit of Lightning's power was formed into an Ultra Essence Crystal, which would later be recovered by Ultraman Zora and used along with Ultrawoman Six's crystal to access his Megawatt Rainbow form.

Ultraman Zora Edit

Lightning may make another appearance in this series to assist Zora, Junior and the rest against who knows what.

Unite! Ultras from 26 Universes: Defeat the Dark Sorcerer! Edit

Immediately after the finale of Ultraman Zora, Lightning was among the group of Ultras warned of Kumasaga's campaign in an alternate Side Space Universe, and headed off to a new mission.

Ultraman Lightning the Movie: Awakening of a God Edit

Upon returning home, Lightning was thrown back into action for what may be the last time. Onyx now possessed the Giga Battlenizer, and with the help of Ultimate Force Zero, Lightning returned to Earth to stop the Dark Ultra's master plan to claim an item of legendary power from before even the time of King. He also finally learned why he gained such power from the Great Vortex.

After the Movie Edit

With Onyx no longer a threat and the age of monsters brought to an end, Lightning returned to the Land of Light and moved back in with his parents, but he would also continue training with Mebius and Onyx.

Battle with the Planetary Invasion Syndicate Edit

TBA

Ultraman 0 Chronicle Edit

At some point in his travels, Lightning encountered Ultraman 0 and challenged him to a fight. After battling to a standstill, Lightning decided to give some of his energy to 0 as thanks for a good fight, granting 0 access to Blitz form. It isn't exactly known when this takes place in their histories, though presumably sometime before or after Ultra Hero Taisen 2.

Ultraman Morte Edit

Lightning's R/B Crystal is among the crystals to land in Morte's universe, where it is somehow damaged. It is later used by an alternate Taji Kawabata to become Ultraman Lightning Dark. Ultraman Morte himself also summons projections of Lightning's forms to utilize the Quintuple Megawatt Current.

Ultras' Bizarre Adventure Edit

Lightning made his debut in UBA Gaiden: Something is Very Fishy! He has been a recurring character since then.

In this series, he has gained a joke form called Ultraman Lightning McQueen, which he occasionally uses when the RP goes out of control.

Other Random RPs Edit

Outside of UBA, Lightning has appeared in a whole bunch of non-canon roleplays where he teams up with a bunch of other heroes. In them, he has gained two capsule monsters: a Dwarf Bulborb and a Kineticlops.

The ball then pops open, releasing black mist and electric bolts which transform Taji into Lightning.

RiseEdit

Ultraman Lightning's rise is similar to Ultraman Blu Wind's rise, but in a more natural black and yellow color scheme compared to Blu's shades of purple. Lightning's original form, Adam, falls into the whirling cloud at the beginning, before flying towards the screen in his current form.

DetransformationEdit

When changing back into his human form, Lightning releases a black cloud. A thunderbolt is released from the cloud and strikes the ground, revealing Taji.

CombinationEdit

  • Legacy Element Ray: Lightning fires the Megawatt Current alongside Ultraman Blizzard's Glacier Ray and Ultraman Legacy's Enhanced Legacy Beam, creating a single beam enhanced with ice and electric energy. It is powerful enough to overwhelm Super Death Zetton's Blazing Shutter and destroy the monster itself.

AbilitiesEdit

  • Lightning Warp: A fancy word for teleportation. Lightning can teleport anything to anywhere he wants, disappearing and reappearing with a flash of electricity and a boom of thunder. This can also damage his opponents. If he uses this too much in a short period of time, it can severely drain his energy.
  • Ultra Defibrillation: Lightning can heal himself or others by absorbing their electrons and using them to stimulate molecules, renewing damaged cells. He can also provide electrical energy to reduce fatigue, allowing optimal health, as well as restarting the heart and repairing any brain damage.

High Voltage
Quotation

"I'm not holding back!"

―Pre-battle catchphrase
UltramanLightningHighVoltageWithProtector

High Voltage is Lightning's upgraded form, which he suddenly accessed in the middle of his and Mebius' battle with Drachium Death Zetton. This form is akin to Mebius' own Burning Brave form, as it is a natural evolution of Lightning's own power activated by his will and bonds.

StatsEdit

  • Flight Speed: Mach 13
  • Running Speed: Mach 5.5
  • Jumping Distance: 1,800 m
  • Jumping Height: 450 m

  • Double Lightning Blades: Lightning gains an additional pair of blades on his legs in addition to the ones on his arms. All four can generate energy copies.
  • Protectors: Lightning gains protector armor on his chest and back.

TechniquesEdit

PhysicalEdit

  • Voltage Windmill: Lightning cartwheels at or past his opponent, the blades on his arms and legs slashing at them.
  • Lightning-Speed Punch: A series of rapid punches charged with electricity.
  • Lightning-Speed Kick: A high-speed kick charged with electricity.
  • Lightning-Speed Chop: A series of rapid chops charged with electricity.

OtherEdit

  • Lightning Way: By either punching the ground or stabbing the Lightning Mega-Blade into it, Lightning can generate a tunnel of electricity between himself and the target, so they cannot escape. This also gives the Lightning Sword's attacks a temporary boost.

WeaponsEdit

  • Lightning Sword: A large sword summoned from Lightning's crest, it is High Voltage's main weapon. At the bottom of the sword is a plug in a socket, which can be removed and inserted into one of three sockets on the side of the blade, used to activate special attacks.
    • Thunderipper: After inserting the plug into the left socket, Lightning releases an energy wave from the sword. He can swing it to launch a crescent of electricity, trace a circle to release an Ultra Slash-like projectile, or fire an electric beam from the broad of the sword.
    • Voltangler: After inserting the plug into the right socket, the blade transforms into an electric whip. It can be used to whip monsters or constrain them while shocking them.
      • Voltrasher: If Lightning activates the Voltangler while the Lightning Sword is still on his head rather than in sword mode, he can perform a Photon Edge-like beam attack.
    • Gigawattracer: After inserting the plug into the top socket, Lightning dashes forwards at Mach 15 with the blade in hand. He rapidly slashes his opponent at high speeds, before delivering five final slashes charged with electricity, leaving a thunderbolt symbol cut through the opponent.
  • Double Lightning Blade Beams: Lightning retains the blades on his arms, but now gains two more blades running up his legs to his knees. Like the ones on his arms, they can emit copies of energy, which have the same functions as they did in his base form.
    • Slugger Typhoon: The Lightning Blade Beams rapidly circle the opponent, trapping them in a powerful whirlwind that carries them off the ground. Lightning then flies into the air and slashes the opponent with the Lightning Sword.
    • Omega Knock Tactics: An enhanced version of the Tri-Blade Assault, using all four of his blades.
    • Double Lightning Slicer: Lightning can combine the Double Lightning Blade Beams into two energy swords that resemble the Zero Twin Sword and Beyond Twin Edge.
      • Spinning Final Lightning: Holding the Double Lightning Slicers, Lightning spins in a tornado with his arms out, rapidly slashing the opponent.

AbilitiesEdit

  • Lightning-Speed Burst: Lightning can generate an aura of electricity around himself, which increases his already impressive speed on the ground or in the air. In this state, his reflexes are improved, and he is protected from indirect damage. Using this ability even allowed him to keep up with Drachium Death Zetton's teleportation.

  • Lightning Blitz Charge: This version of the armor further increases Lightning's electricity absorption capabilities. He can choose to recharge his own energy, or have electricity go into the armor, further increasing its power and performance.
    • Lightning Blitz Boost: When the armor is at maximum charge, Lightning gains a boost aura similar to that of High Voltage. This increases his strength as well as speed, and electrocutes anything touching him.
  • Enhanced Mobility: Compared to the original, this armor is lighter and less bulky, negating the slowness of the original Attacker Armor form.
  • Durability: His armored portions are even more protected than the original, allowing Lightning to shrug off even blows that would normally be fatal.
  • Digitize: Lightning can digitize and enter cyberspace.
  • Armor Transfer: If he wishes, Lightning can materialize the Attacker Armor for the use of other Ultras rather than himself.

Quotation

"I call upon the might of the storm!"

―Transformation call

God of Thunder is Lightning's ultimate form. it wields the power of Ultraman Thor, one of a race of Ultras who preceded the Land of Light and inspired Norse mythology.

Thor's spirit chose Lightning to wield his power to fight Ultraman Onyx, who was merged with the latent power of Dark Ultra Loki.

This form exceeds all of Lightning's others in every aspect, and bears all three of Thor's greatest possessions, most notably the legendary hammer Mjolnir.

StatsEdit

  • Flight Speed: Mach 20
  • Running Speed: Mach 12
  • Jumping Distance: 2,500 m
  • Jumping Height: 700 m
  • Underwater Traveling Speed: Mach 8
  • Underground Traveling Speed: Mach 7
  • Brute Strength: 310,000 t
  • Grip Strength: 195,000 t

Body FeaturesEdit

  • Megingjord: Lightning wears Ultraman Thor's Belt of Strength, which doubles this form's already impressive physical might.
  • Jarngriepr: Lightning wears Ultraman Thor's metal gloves/gauntlets, which he needs to hold the short handle of Mjolnir. These replace the blades on his arms, and increase his punching power.
  • Armor: Lightning possesses armor plates across his body.
  • Cape: Lightning wears a red cape.

TechniquesEdit

PhysicalEdit

  • Armored Lightning Punch: A powerful punch attack, boosted by Jarngriepr's armor.
  • Armored Lightning Chop: A powerful chop attack, boosted by Jarngriepr's armor.
  • Armored Lightning Kick: A powerful kick attack.

WeaponsEdit

  • Mjolnir: As expected by the source of this form's powers, Lightning wields the legendary hammer in battle.
    • Godly Barrier: Mjolnir can erect a force field to protect Lightning from attacks.
    • Cosmic Storm Break: A basic melee attack with Mjolnir, albeit empowered by energy/electricity, making it much stronger.
    • Great Ground Impact: Lightning slams Mjolnir into the ground, releasing waves of electricity around him. Similar to the Orb Ground Calibur, but more powerful.
    • Hammer Vortex: Lightning spins in a circle, holding Mjolnir out, to eventually create a deadly tornado charged with electric bolts.
    • Wrath of Asgard: A massive beam of divine golden light and electricity fired from Mjolnir. Lightning's ultimate attack.
  • Lightning Slugger: Lightning's arm blades are gone, leaving him with the one slugger on his head. He can still use it to great effect.
    • Thunderbolt Slugger: Using Thor's power, Lightning charges incredible amounts of electrical energy into his slugger and throws it, a thunderbolt-shaped beam trailing it as it flies.
    • Ultimate Slugger Storm: Lightning telekinetically holds the slugger in front of him, then hits it with Mjolnir, causing it to multiply into hundreds of electric blades that decimate the enemy before merging back into one and returning to his head.

AbilitiesEdit

  • Weather Control: Lightning can freely manipulate the weather. For example, he can create a thunderstorm to hinder his enemies and empower himself, or he can intensify sunlight to allow his Ultra allies to absorb it and regain energy.
  • Geokinesis: Lightning can now control the earth, allowing him to cause earthquakes or make pillars of earth erupt beneath the target's feet.
  • Dimensional Travel: Using Mjolnir, Lightning can tear open a dimensional portal, allowing him to travel through the multiverse. However, just like Ultimate Zero, this will leave him unable to access God of Thunder's power for a while.
  • Super Strength: Due to Megingjord's power and Ultraman Thor's own, Lightning's physical strength skyrockets, able to perform feats that even Magnus at his maximum effort would struggle to do.
  • Super Senses: Lightning's senses are incredibly enhanced, easily on par with Tetra's.
  • Durability: Lightning's durability is increased beyond even that of the Attacker Armor.
    • Extreme Temperature Resistance: Lightning can withstand both extreme heat and extreme cold.


Standard AbilitiesEdit

  • Fulgurkinetic Power: Thanks to his dip in one of the biggest storms in the universe, Lightning somehow gained the powers of electricity. In addition to his many electric beams, he also can use it for many less flashy purposes.
    • Electrical Immunity: Being charged with electricity, Lightning is immune to its adverse effects.
    • Electricity Absorption: Lightning can absorb electricity to regain energy and increase his time limit.
    • Shark Sense: Lightning can sense an individual's electromagnetic field, just like a shark. This allows him to see invisible opponents, although electric-based monsters such as Neronga can hide themselves from this ability.
  • Ultra Psychokinesis: Like most other Ultraseven-type Ultras, Lightning can use telekinesis to control his Sluggers. He cannot do much else with these abilities, as he has only taken Slugger classes and not other willpower electives despite his mother's encouragement.

Taji Kawabata is Lightning's human disguise. He takes on the appearance of a 21-year old Japanese man with blond hair, gray eyes and medium-pale skin. His outfits are typically composed of long-sleeved shirts, Capri pants and tall boots, varying in color. He always wears a pair of yellow sunglasses, usually keeping them up.

Having skipped Earth class at the Space Patrol Academy and only just begun reading the Space Ranger’s Guide when he arrived on Earth, Lightning left himself in a bad position. He only took on this human form at the very end of episode 1, and even then had no knowledge of basic human functions like eating or using the bathroom at first. After some coaching from his fellow CAKE members, he knows how to do these and now rather enjoys eating, especially some of the confections made right in CAKE's bakery base, despite actually being lactose intolerant.

As the newest member and the Ultra the group supports, he is known as "the icing" of CAKE.

AbilitiesEdit

  • Ultra Physiology: As with any disguised Ultra, Taji's physical ability greatly surpasses that of a normal human:
    • Superhuman Leap: Taji can easily jump 30 feet in the air.
    • Endurance: Taji is able to survive physical beatdowns from aliens, and even keep going after being hit by rays such as Alien Dais Nanzo's stun blast.
    • Super Speed: For brief moments, Taji can increase his speed to appear as a blur. Overusing this skill can leave him exhausted, however.
    • Acute Senses: Taji can see more colors and hear more frequencies of sound than a normal human.
  • Fulgurkinesis: While not as much as his true form, Taji can manipulate electricity to an extent.
    • Electricity Immunity: Like his true form, Taji is still immune to electricity's negative effects.
    • Shark Sense: Taji can sense an individual's electromagnetic field, just like a shark. This allows him to see invisible enemies.
    • Electric Bolt: Taji can fire a small thunderbolt from his hand, which can shock smaller opponents into submission.
    • Electric Touch: If an enemy touches Taji, he can surge his energy through the point of contact, electrocuting them. He can also use this to short-circuit machinery, or even electrify his hands to catch an enemy's projectiles.
    • Ultra Defibrillation: Taji can heal himself or others by absorbing their electrons and using them to stimulate molecules, renewing damaged cells. He can also provide electrical energy to reduce fatigue, allowing optimal health, as well as restarting the heart and repairing any brain damage.
  • Parkour Skills: After his series, Lightning trained to improve his agility and strength. He demonstrates what he's learned by being able to perform acrobatic leaps and hang from narrow ledges in human form.

GearEdit

Ultra EquipmentEdit

  • Thunder Ball: Taji's Poke Ball-like transformation device.
  • Monster Hunter's Guide: Taji possesses a copy of the Monster Hunter's Guide, which takes the form of a small, thin tablet. Although he presumably has had access to the full Space Ranger's Guide back on the Land of Light, he only has a personal copy of one of its sub-books.

CAKE GearEdit

  • Brace Com: A mobile device which can be worn on a member's wrist or detached for use as a phone. It can function as a watch, communicator, map, or scanner/analyzer for monsters and materials.
  • Beam Sounder: CAKE's standard weapon, a gun-like device that shoots waves/bolts of sonic energy, which can shatter solid objects or cause lethal injuries to human-sized foes. It also has a weaker setting to disorient or stun opponents.

TriviaEdit

  • Kit would like to thank the following people:
    • MoarCrossovers for making his original render.
    • UltraGrenburr12678 for rendering his other forms.
    • SolZen321, Furnozilla, BigD2003 and Sentinel 72 for submitting High Voltage's techniques.
  • Although not intentional, Lightning's powers and personality are both very similar to DC Comics' Static.
    • Kit has embraced the similarities by giving Lightning's High Voltage form some purple markings like Static's costume.
      • Lightning was originally capable of manipulating magnetism and radio waves like Static, but this was scrapped.
  • The Lightning Sword was originally similar to the Xlugger and Orb Slasher. Its current design is based on Billy the Rod from Kamen Rider Fourze, although with more of a blade.
  • According to Lightning himself, his real full name is Adam Adan Shining Golden Goldilocks Corncob Dandruff Gabriel Amazing Mighty Superman Ironclad. He was joking.
  • I got Taji's name from a random name generator.
    • Based on Google Translate, the name "Taji" translates to "Many circumstances," which can fit Lightning, as the circumstances in which he received his powers and was sent to Earth, are very strange, and numerous indeed.
  • Taji being lactose intolerant spawned from a joke in RPs where Lightning is shown to be drunk despite having only had milk.
