The S-Class Species given to the Giant Unidentified Life Forms that continue to show up in Japan. The kanji for kaiju is "禍威獣" (threatening beasts of calamity). This is a pun on the normal kanji for kaiju which is "怪獣" which means "strange beast" usually.


Stands for S-Class Species Suppression Protocol.

In Japanese they're the Science Special Investigations Squad (Kagaku Tokusou Tai 科学特捜隊)or Katokutai (科特隊) for short.

  • The title shows Shin Godzilla at first, making a joke since a lot of the crew worked on that movie too. This is before the name changes to the true title, Shin Ultraman.
  • Tamura uses a flipping cell phone while Munakata uses an office phone to communicate to each other on the Kaiju matters since their conversations are kept confidential and must not be leaked to the public at all cost.
  • At one point, Kaminaga is reading "The Savage Mind" by Claude Lévi-Strauss which discusses anthropology and human thought.
  • Zarab's name comes from the word "brother" backwards in Japanese.
  • While fallen asleep, the giant-sized Asami gets tied up with wires and plastic sheets. Munakata cites the situation as Sleeping Beauty mixed with Gulliver's Travels as he looks at the computer screen.
  • Taki wears a PlayStation VR during his meeting with Earth's geniuses.
  • Furuya Bin, the suit actor in the original series, is attached to work on this movie. Ultraman is fully CGI throughout the movie, but the character's anatomy in the designs is actually based on Furuya's muscle proportion. Furuya and Anno wear a motion capture suit to supply movement data for Ultraman.
