Ultraman Tiga


#101 "The Prophecy" (Airdate: 09-14-02)
It is the year 2049. The world has been at peace for decades but not for much longer. A meteor containing a space capsule crashes to Earth, suspiciously close to The Citagon, headquarters of the Terrestrial Peacekeeping Commission (TPC). Inside the space capsule is a holographic message intended for the members of GUTS (the Global Unlimited Task Squad), TPC’s investigative agency and special combat squad. The message warns that monstrous creatures will soon destroy the planet. GUTS is told that their only hope is to locate the Pyramid of Light in the ancient land of Tiga. Inside the Pyramid they will find the statue of an ancient warrior, who protected mankind 30 million years ago. They’re told that one person, and one person only, has the power to awaken this giant so that it can resume its role as protector of the planet. Just as the hologram is about to reveal that person’s identity, there’s a malfunction with the space capsule and the holographic image disintegrates. Now time is running out because two monsters, Melba and Golza, have been sighted and they’re headed for Tiga. The GUTS team gets to the Pyramid ahead of the monsters but they’re confused about which one of the three statues inside is the true ancient warrior. They also don’t know how they would go about reviving it. The monsters arrive and begin to destroy the Pyramid, along with the statues of the three ancient warriors. The GUTS team watches helplessly from their Gutswing jets overhead but Daigo, one of the GUTS fighter pilots, decides to take matters into his own hands. Using laser beam artillery on Gutswing 1, he attacks the Golza & Melba. His lasers are no match for these monsters, who have already completely destroyed the Pyramid of Light and two of the three warrior statues inside. Suddenly Daigo’s jet is hit and he loses control. At the brink of disaster, just as his jet is about to crash to the ground, Daigo is transformed into light and merges with the one remaining giant warrior statue. It is at this sudden and secret moment that Ultraman Tiga is born. Incredibly it is Daigo who, according to the hologram, was that one and only person able to revive the ancient warrior. Ultraman Tiga battles Golza and Melba and defeats them both. Soon after, Daigo emerges unscathed from the GUTS Wing crash site but his colleagues at GUTS have no idea that their friend is Ultraman Tiga. World peace has been restored... at least for now.
