Trivia[edit]

  • Ultraman was filmed with a total of three suits throughout the series. The suits easily got damaged during filming due to the lack of quality in the manufacturing. When in production, they were codenamed as Type A (used from episode 1 to 13), Type B (used from episode 14 to 29), and Type C (used from episode 30 to the final episode) to distinguish the differences between the suits. Ultraman was later introduced into other media over the years, many suits were made based on the three types using various technology to acheive better quality in tailoring.
