Theory Citations Notes
Uluru is actually a depiction of Sylar or a symbol thereof. None + His being invincible would have to do with the rapid regeneration ability he was planning on taking from Claire. It could also depict how his hunger for power will spiral to massive proportions.

- Tim Kring confirmed that Uluru only existed in the pages of the comic books.

+ Tim Kring's comments are not necessarily canon.
- He's the creator of the show and a writer.
Uluru can bend space and time like Hiro. None + The only time Uluru is heard speaking is when he says to Isaac Mendez, "What have you done?" Because Isaac continued to take drugs and paint the future, both Peter and Sylar found out about the explosion, leading to both their meetings with Ted Sprague, which would have lead to the explosion. However, when Uluru speaks to Isaac, he has not yet painted the explosion. This may hint at the fact that Uluru saw the explosion and believed it was Isaac's fault, which would explain why he accused Isaac of doing something.
Uluru will be the thing that the characters are actually supposed to face... after it kills Sylar. None - There is really no other evidence that Uluru will become important aside from Isaac seeing Uluru and Hiro having him as a background on his computer screen.
- How is that not evidence.
Nobody said it wasn't evidence, they said there was no other evidence....

+ Isaac also painted Uluru, and Uluru appeared on the cover of "9th Wonders" a comic produced by Isaac Mendez.
The legend of Uluru also has a creation myth attached to it: the Dingo, a supernaturally enhanced creature.
- Tim Kring confirmed that Uluru only existed in the pages of the comic books.

+ Tim Kring's comments are not necessarily canon.
- He's the creator of the show and a writer.
Uluru could be Jessica. None + She's already out of control and this can be a development of that. Or this could be her form when completely separated from Niki. She has said that she's in control now and she seems to think she's unstoppable. She might end up being the true antagonist.

- As of Landslide, it seems that Jessica and Niki are finally on friendly terms.
- Tim Kring confirmed that Uluru only existed in the pages of the comic books.

+ Tim Kring's comments are not necessarily canon.
- He's the creator of the show and a writer.

Jessica is dead.

Uluru could be Peter. None + Peter is one of only two characters powerful enough to be him (Sylar, pre-Hiro-stab being the other).

+ All his powers, especially regeneration, could easily justify him referring to himself as "invincible", just like Uluru.
+ His power comes from his depth of emotion, which is not always controllable or predictable. It could be that after being seriously hurt or betrayed by people he cares about, or from losing them, that he could utterly lose control of his emotions, turning him into a raging Uluru.
+ In Unexpected when Peter was fighting Isaac, as Peter became enraged, his voice became deep and distorted.
- Sylar also seems to have a deepened voice at times. Both Peter and Sylar's voices become deep when they use their telekinesis.

- This has been stated by a writer to be for "coolness effect".

+ "Uluru" is the aboriginal name for Ayer's Rock in Australia. According to these native tribes, this monolith was central during the events of "Dreamtime". According to Aboriginal legend regarding the Dreamtime: "every meaningful activity, event, or life process that occurs at a particular place leaves behind a vibrational residue in the earth... Everything in the natural world is a symbolic footprint of the metaphysical beings whose actions created our world. ... The Aborigines called this potency the "Dreaming" of a place, and this Dreaming constitutes the sacredness of the earth. Only in extraordinary states of consciousness can one be aware of, or attuned to, the inner dreaming of the Earth". The concept of Dreamtime is, of course, subtle and complex, and there are varying interpretations of it. However, this understanding coincides perfectly with Peter's empathic connection to other people through power absorption as well as through his apparently psychic dreams (such as knowing details about Nathan's accident as it was happening, sharing a dream with Charles Deveaux right before he died, the vision of himself exploding, and perhaps even the dream he had of his brother turning into Sylar).

+ Most important, however, is his name. His first name and last name, Peter Petrelli, both come from the Greek term 'petra' meaning "rock."
+ An aboriginal legend about the Uluru tells of warring serpent beings who scarred the rock. Peter's scar may allude to this.
+ Is the Serpent in the story of the Serpent and the Crane refers to Sylar, then the serpent scarring the rock could refer to Sylar giving Peter the hunger.
There may be religious references of note. The "rock" on which Jesus supposedly wished his church to be built was a man whose name changed from Simon to Peter. That we had a Simone in a relationship with Peter (until her death, of course) is quite the parallel.

- Tim Kring confirmed that Uluru only existed in the pages of the comic books.

This doesn't mean there will be no metaphorical allusions in the show.
+ Tim Kring's comments are not necessarily canon.
- He's the creator of the show and a writer.

+ In Isaac's First Time, Uluru says, "Isaac, what have you done?" After finding out Isaac works for the Company and prematurely ending his training with Claude, Peter says something similar. Also in the Australian legend of Uluru, it says something about a conflict between a serpent (who could be Sylar) and Uluru which parallels the conflict between Peter and Sylar.

Uluru will be a villain in a future season. None + Uluru has appeared as a formidable rock monster on the cover of 9th Wonders!, Issue #13. He also appeared in a dream/hallucination in which he menacingly towered over Isaac.

In How to Stop an Exploding Man, Molly mentions the existence of somebody "far worse" than Sylar.

- The person she mentioned has been confirmed to be Maury.

- Tim Kring confirmed that Uluru only existed in the pages of the comic books.

+ Tim Kring's comments are not necessarily canon.
- He's the creator of the show and a writer.
This doesn't mean that it will not happen. There have been other elements that Kring would like to see in the series, but NBC would not allow. It is possible that there might be things that he wouldn't want in the series, but NBC will pressure him to do anyway.
Uluru is Peter and Nathan's father. None + Angela Petrelli told Peter that his father thought he was invincible. Peter had a vision when Nathan had an accident and when Charles Deveaux died, but he did not feel anything when his dad died, so he may be alive.

- Tim Kring confirmed that Uluru only existed in the pages of the comic books.

+ Tim Kring's comments are not necessarily canon.
- He's the creator of the show and a writer.
He or the other writers are free to change their mind. For example, they originally envisioned Sylar ate brains, but changed that in Volume 3, since they had never explicitly shown it on the show.
Tim Kring also stated way back in Volume 2 that Ando and Mohinder would not be receiving powers. That changed during the re-write of Volume 3 following the writer's strike.

+ After being revealed in Volume 3, Arthur Petrelli demonstrates many attributes that would fit with him being Uluru.

+ He is the main antagonist of Volume 3, and also seemingly the most powerful evolved human yet seen, with many powerful abilities (such as rapid cellular regeneration and Space-time manipulation) which would justify him being though of as "the invincible".
+ The names Petrelli and Uluru are both heavily associated with rock.
+ Near the end of Volume 3, in Our Father, Hiro Nakamura confronts Arthur Petrelli in a similar manner to the 9th Wonders! cover which depicts Hiro confronting Uluru.
All of this may simply be a coincidental resemblance.
Uluru is tied to the show Lost. None + Isaac of Uluru is a character in the show.

- Uluru is the name of a sub-mountain, and indigenous religious location, in Australia where Isaac of Uluru (from Lost) lived. Since Australia exists in both shows, Isaac of Uluru and Uluru the Invincible are not necessarily connected.
- Lost is on ABC, while Heroes is on NBC, which are competing networks - it is unlikely that they will tie anything together with those two shows.

Heroes characters have been photographed drinking Slusho!, a fictional drink created by Lost creator J.J Abrams.

+ Jeph Loeb was a writer and supervising producer for Lost and is now co-executive producer and a writer for Heroes. Cross-references between the shows may be evidence of his influence. This fact is referenced in the commentary for Episode 20 found on NBC.com

Uluru has no role in the television series whatsoever. None + Uluru has not yet had any major role in the show.

- Uluru appears in the graphic novels on nbc.com.
- Isaac painted it.

Isaac was on drugs when he painted it.

+ Tim Kring confirmed that Uluru only existed in the pages of the comic books.

- Tim Kring's comments are not necessarily cannon.
+ He's the creator of the show and a writer.

This doesn't mean that it will not happen. There has been other elements that Kring would like to see in the series, but NBC would not allow. It is possible that there might be things that he wouldn't want in the series, but NBC will pressure him to do anyways.

For example, Mr. Kring wishing Zach to be homosexual, but NBC pressured him to not make him gay.
- Zach's sexual orientation was downplayed at the request of the producers of "Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles" because Thomas Dekker joined the cast as John Connor.
Sylar will fight Uluru in a season finale. None - Tim Kring confirmed that Uluru only existed in the pages of the comic books.
+ Tim Kring's comments are not necessarily canon.
- He's the creator of the show and a writer.
Hiro will fight against Uluru in the future. None + According to Isaac's painting of Uluru that was published in the cover of "9th Wonders, issue #13", a man is standing in front of Uluru, if you look closer at this figure, you will notice that he has a ponytail and clothes that look similar to "Future Hiro", as he looked in the end of the 4th Episode.
- The man in the picture, unlike Future Hiro, wears glasses. Also, his clothing looks more similar to the way Hiro was dressed in the season finale.

- Tim Kring confirmed that Uluru only existed in the pages of the comic books.

+ Tim Kring's comments are not necessarily canon.
- He's the creator of the show and a writer.
Uluru will encounter Hana Gitelman. None + In Isaac's painting of Uluru on the cover 13th Issue of 9th Wonders!, a person stands in front of Uluru. The person may be Hana Gitelman, with the same clothes as she wears at other times (The Death of Hana Gitelman).

+ Hana can see codes when she use her power, such as Isaac who can see the future with his paintings and he had an encounter with Uluru before (Isaac's First Time), so they both saw Uluru while using powers with ability to see things beyond normal view.
- Tim Kring confirmed that Uluru only existed in the pages of the comic books.

+ Tim Kring's comments are not necessarily canon.
- He's the creator of the show and a writer.
Uluru means Death! Every character that has been shown with him died. None + Isaac encountered Uluru (Isaac's First Time), and he died towards the end of the first season.

- Issac was off his face on drugs! This means he never met Uluru, he imagined he did.
+ The 9th Wonders! cover showing Uluru shows another individual near Uluru, who looks like Hana Gitelman (The Death of Hana Gitelman) or Future Hiro (Five Years Gone), both of whom have died.
+ If Uluru only exists in the comic books, it is possible that he will have a metaphoric meaning, as a result of Isaac's power.
+ In the 13th issue of 9th Wonders!, the unknown character says "I Fought Uluru". If you take the meaning of the theory, you get: "I fought death". If it was Hana, she fought death and now she's alive in a virtual world. If it was Future Hiro, he fought the death of Ando, and the people who died during the explosion.
+ In Isaac's First Time, Uluru says to Isaac "What have you done?!", Uluru actually said exactly what the woman at the gallery told Isaac, she was a victim to Isaac's paintings and died, and it was the first time Isaac was exposed to his powers that causes death.
+ On the cover of the 13th issue of 9th Wonders! the unknown character also says that he/she is humanity's last hope. So Uluru may also refer to the Shanti virus and the outbreak in March 2008, and the character could be the one who tries to stop it.
- Uluru was Hiro's screensaver in Genesis. He is still alive.

But Hiro never encountered Uluru face to face, and if he did, you never know his fate.

- Uluru doesn't mean death, it is another name for Ayers Rock, Australia.

Uluru is the Shanti virus. None + Uluru is from Ayers Rock legends, but it represents the aftermath of a fight when "Peter" (whose name is Latin for "rock"), and the one who represents monster fight, but only the aftermath (i.e., the Shanti virus). It will take no physical form; the person at the bottom of the image represents the person who will stop the virus. Also the lizard girl from legend who sparked the war could be Claire, which could be from a previous event or a future one.
Uluru will rip the world apart if the disaster in Season 3 isn't stopped. None. + Tokyo's destruction when Hiro visited the future bore a resemblance to the emergence of Uluru in the comics. (The Second Coming)

The painted image of the Earth being ripped apart has been seen in the background several times throughout (Season 3) so far.

Uluru is a by-product of Isaac's heroin-affected mind. None + Tim Kring confirmed that Uluru only existed in the pages of the comic books.
- Tim Kring's comments are not necessarily canon.
+ He's the creator of the show and a writer.

+ Isaac was high on heroin when he hallucinated Uluru.

Uluru is actually Mohinder Suresh. Mohinder injected himself with his experimented serum in the first episode of Season 3. + Mohinder woke up scaly, having a rocky back and slimy hands after making love to Maya. Before that, he had his own powers. He was super enhanced.

+ When Peter goes to visit Mohinder in the future, we can't see how he looks like, and it's obvious it's not human.

Uluru is Lyle. None + In a question with writers Joe Pokaski and Aron Coliete at Comic Book Resources' Behind The Eclipse, Peter asked, "Will we ever see how Lyle (Claire's adoptive brother) turns out in the future? Are Waffles involved? (What is it with the waffle motif?)' and the writers respond: Three words: "Is Lyle Uluru?"
Uluru will never be stopped until he gets his fill of waffles. None + Waffles are tasty.

- Uluru's hunger for waffles may be infinite.

A person effected by Mohinder's power giving drug will become Uluru. The serum is turning Mohinder into some kind of monster, same with another test subject in the latest episode It's Coming. It could turn somebody else into the giant rock monster Uluru as a harmful side effect like it did to Mohinder. - It is possible that the experimental serum does not manifest itself the same way in every individual.
Uluru is a combination of character's dark sides. None. + Uluru has been depicted as a dark being, he could be a symbolic meaning of what all the heroes would be like if they became villains.

+ Hiro was on the cover of Isaac's comic fighting Uluru, Hiro's been around a lot of Heroes that have either intentionally gone to the dark side (Sylar, Adam) or ones that didn't know what they were truly doing (Peter).

Uluru is referring to Ayers rock in Australia. None. + Ayers rock is called Uluru.
Uluru, while existing only within the comics, is a represenation of an imminent evil, such as Sylar, Adam, or Arthur. None.
Uluru has some connection to Usutu. None. + Their names are very similar.
Uluru is the bus accident victim from Isaac's First Time. None + They both said "What have you done?"

- Uluru said "Isaac, what have you done?"

Uluru is not a real character in the show and was drawn by Isaac in a non-precognition state. Time Kring stated he only existed in the pages of the comic books. - Tim Kring's comments are not necessarily canon.
+ He's the creator of the show and a writer.
Samuel Sullivan is Uluru. None. + Samuel can control the rocks and earth, and there have been many suggestions that he is too powerful, and/or dangerous.
