** The Dragonars themselves. D-1 is an obvious reference to the original RX-78, with beam sabers, a laser bazooka and a shield. D-2 is for the guntank with its shoulder-mounted turret cannons, while D3 is a more humanoid version of the Gunroller.

If that sounded similar to ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam'' to you, you're quite right - this 1987-1988 series is, in fact, very similar to YoshiyukiTomino 's masterpiece. However, ''Metal Armor Dragonar'' is much LighterAndSofter than the series it parallels, not only keeping death to a minimum, but also engaging in refreshing comedic episodes which manage not to detract anything from the action and the development. People who liked ''Gundam'''s bleak setting might be somewhat put off by this, but ''Metal Armor Dragonar'' presents itself as a worthy alternative.

* SmugSnake / TheStarscream: Dorchenov. He thinks he's a MagnificentBastard and a {{Badass}}, but in most cases, his plans either fails or only succeed due to overwhelming power or dumb luck.

** D-1, Kaine's Dragonar, is a JackOfAllStats, a cross between Fighter and Thief. It has the best speed among all three, is the only one with a dedicated melee weapon, but has less firepower and range detection. It can be outfitted with a MechaExpansionPack to provide it with more guns at the cost of looking ridiculous and reducing speed.
** D-2, Tapp's Dragonar, is a MightyGlacier, a cross between Fighter and Mage, being slow and with the heaviest firepower and defense.

->''[[GratuitousEnglish CHASER! Dead heat!]]''

The year is 2087, and mankind has started expanding into outer space, founding colonies on the Moon and advancing dramatically in technology and generally improving the living conditions for everyone. However, a dark shadow is cast over this future, as the Moon colonies, under the leadership of Marshall [[SpaceBattleshipYamato Iskandar]] Guiltorre, declare themselves independent under the collective name of Giganos Empire. After years of excalating tensions, brought on by the ever-growing discrimination against Earthlings on the Moon colonies, and by the construction of Giganos' Mass Driver, war finally breaks out, with Giganos Empire in an overwhelming advantage thanks to its technological superiority and the use of anthropomorphic HumongousMecha called Metal Armors. A few months in the conflict, already 70% of Earth is under Giganos' dictatorship, and the Earth Federation is getting desperate...

Fortunately for the Federation, three new-model Metal Armors codenamed Dragonar are captured by an Allied fleet during transportation. Unfortunately, the Giganos forces immediately start pursuit, with the order of taking them back at all costs... and in the whole mess, the Dragonar end up being [[FallingIntoTheCockpit boarded and piloted by three teenagers from the neutral colony of Arcadia]], which Giganos attacked to take back their prototypes. Of course, much mayhem ensues, and Kain, Tapp and Light find themselves forcibly enlisted into Federation army because [[EmpathicWeapon their mechs' AIs will only allow them to pilot it]], fighting an almost hopeless war against extremely bleak odds as they try to keep Giganos Empire from reclaiming the Dragonar.
