Ultraman Joneus

Ultraman Joneus (ウルトラマンジョーニアス Urutoraman Jōniasu?), also known as Ultraman Joe, and Ultraman J, is the main Ultra featured in The Ultraman anime series. Unlike the majority of other Showa Ultras, he hails from Planet U40. His human host is Choichiro Hikari.


The UltramanEdit

A being from the planet U40, Joneus was the strongest of the Great Eight, Eight of the strongest warriors of the Planet. During the war with the Hellar Fleet, the former Ultras targeted the Earth hoping to divide the Ultra forces. Ultraman Joneus was sent to protect the Earth from danger.

On the way he merged with the human Choichiro Hikari. Since then Joneus only appeared in Ultra Form when Hikari wielded his Beam Flasher. During the conflict against the Hellar Fleet Joneus, and therefore Hikari, fell in battle.

Hikari was taken back to U40 by another Giant Ultra where the pair were revived and Hikari met his younger sister Amia. Eventually the pair met up with the Scientific Guard and the group assisted the Ultras in battling the Hellar Fleet. Eventually Hellar was defeated and Hikari and Joneus returned to Earth to continue protecting it, being assisted occasionally by Amia.

Ultraman Joneus was successful in protecting Earth from various monsters and aliens. After man long battles Joneus eventually separated from his host allowing Hikari to meet him in human form before he returned home.
