The show’s main catchphrases are “I’m borrowing the power of your lights!” (光の力、おかりします!, Hikari no chikara, okarishimasu!) and “Awaken, the warrior of light.” (覚醒せよ、光の戦士。, Kakusei seyo, hikari no senshi.) A long time ago, the Earth was on the brink of destruction after King Demon Beasts wreaked havoc, but the monsters were sealed with the help of Ultra Warriors.

In the present day, these monsters were unsealed by Jugglus Juggler as cases of monster attacks started to appear in Japan. During Maga-Basser’s attack, Gai made his debut by saving Naomi, the leader of the paranormal website SSP and started his mission to stop the resurrection of King Demon Beasts while taking refuge in the SSP’s office. Unknown to the others, Gai secretly transforms into Ultraman Orb, a warrior of light who borrows the power of past Ultra Warriors upon losing his original form to fight against frequent monster attacks while facing Juggler, his original ally turned adversary after being rejected to be chosen for Orb’s power.[9][10] In the middle of the series, Juggler awakened the legendary monster Maga-Orochi who surpasses Orb in every one of his available forms. Through the use of Zoffy and Ultraman Belial’s powers as Thunder Breastar, Gai/Orb managed to defeat the infamous destroyer but his little control of its immense power almost killed Naomi when she was captured by Galactron. After learning to have faith in his strength, Gai manages to control Thunder Breastar and regains his lost form, Orb Origin.

At the end of the series, it was revealed that Maga-Orochi survived and matured into its original form Magata no Orochi. Its awakening was sensed by various monsters and aliens on Earth, with several of them already having left Japan and caused an unstable change of climate. Juggler tricked the VTL Squad into launching their strongest missile, which unintentionally helped the monster in its revival while proceeding to consume the entire planet. Following Orb’s defeat, he took this opportunity to taunt Gai by attempting to kill Naomi in front of him but failed to do so when she claimed responsibility of her own death. Juggler’s action of saving Naomi brings forth a revelation that he had rescued her ancestor Natasha during the year 1908, allowing him to be redeemed in front of his own rival Gai. When assisting Orb in facing Magata no Orochi, Juggler held off the monster long enough for the Ultra to use his predecessor’s powers and destroy it. In the aftermath of the battle, Gai decided to depart on his travel once more while Juggler survived his apparent destruction and watched the former’s departure from a safe distance.

Ultraman Orb (ウルトラマンオーブ Urutoraman Ōbu) is the titular character of the Ultraman Orb series. Described as a ‘wanderer’, Orb continues the theme of Ultra Heroes powered by devices that was started three years earlier by Ginga’s debut series. He is able to utilize the abilities of his fellow Ultras to transform and gain their powers. At the same time, the Spark Dollstrend of said series has also finally ended.

Aesthetically, Ultraman Orb’s motif is based on past Ultra Warriors, which is meant to coincide with Tsuburaya’s 50th year anniversary of the Ultra Series. The most concrete evidence is his basic form, Spacium Zeperion, which is based on Ultraman and Ultraman Tiga. Of course, it is also meant as a milestone celebration for the two aforementioned Ultra Warriors’ titular series, celebrating their 50th and 20th anniversary respectively. Originally, Ultraman Orb was first teased in a promotional video by Tsuburaya Productions which commemorates the aforementioned anniversary. At the end of the video, a black background with a pair of Ultraman eyes can be seen, with the English letters shown “What’s next…?”

Background wise, according to one of Ultraman Orb’s writers, Takao Nakano, Orb (and by extension his human form, Gai Kurenai) had his conception based on Ultraseven, whom, like Orb, uses human disguises and started their lives as wanderers on Earth sometime before the setting of their series.

Aside from that, other motives and elements include Japanese novel Lone Samurai Monjiro, American actor Clint Eastwood (whose known for his role as wanderers) and singer Tsunehiko Kamijō’s image song, Dareka ga Kaze no Naka de. All this is done under the purpose to “re-invoke the wanderer hero in the 21st century world”
