Ultraman X (ウルトラマンＸ Urutoraman Ekkusu?) is the 27th entry in the Ultra Series, trademarked by Tsuburaya Productions, with a cyber theme. It aired in mid-July as part of New Ultraman Retsuden. Spark Dolls do appear in this series, but its main gimmick is cards. Ultraman X sees the Ultra Series continue to move into a direction to be more competive with Kamen Rider and Super Sentai, and also continues the collectable gimmick concept introduced in Ultraman Ginga and Ginga S. This was the final show to be featured on the New Ultraman Retsuden block before it came to an end on July 2016.
