[[quoteright:250:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Emperor_of_Darkness_979.jpg]]

The Emperor of Darkness was the supreme ruler and warlord of the Mykene. Its main goal was leading the Mykene back to the surface. However, he left the war planning and development of operations to its commanders, limiting itself to replace them when they failed too much or died. He never left his throne and never travelled to the surface. Its most important action in the series was [[spoiler:bring Dr. Hell back to life.]]

The Great General of Darkness (Ankoku Daishogun)

!!Tropes:

* BadassBiker
* BadassAndChildDuo: His little brother usually hangs around him. Needless to say, threaten Shiro and the pain you will feel will depend on whether Kouji is or is not riding his HumongousMecha in the time.
* BattleCouple: The male half, with Sayaka as the female.
* BelligerentSexualTension: With Sayaka.
* BigEater: Kouji is occasionally shown to be one. Hell, in the ''Mazinkaizer'' movie, he eats about ten times as much as the rest of the table ''combined'' ([[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/vlcsnap-1738084.JPG yes, those dishes are all his]]) before insisting that he's ''still'' hungry.
* BigNo: Kouji screams one when his grandfather dies.
* BrainwashedAndCrazy: By the Vegans in the Anime/UFORoboGrendizer Creator/GoNagai manga, and the UFO Robot Grendizer tai Great Mazinger movie.
** And by Viscount Pygman in the series.
* TheBusCameBack: He and Sayaka went to America after the end of the original series, and they were not seen again until the end of Great Mazinger.
* CallingYourAttacks In GratuitousEnglish: Koji's most famous trait (and indeed, his legacy) is his habit of yelling out weapon names before using them. His most famous battle cries, "RocketPunch!" (that sent one or both of Mazinger's forearms flying at a foe), "[[ChestBlaster Breast Fire]]!" (which activated the red heat sinks on Mazinger's chest, melting most enemies to slag) and "Majin Go!" are well-known in Japan, even by people who have never watched Mazinger before. This has since become [[TropeCodifier the trademark]] of SuperRobot pilots everywhere.
** The only ones that averted this were the [[EyeBeams Photon Beam]], spoken in Japanese as "Koushiryoku Beam", Great Wheel Rocket Punch (Daisharin Rocket Punch), and the Freeze Ray.
* ChasteHero
* ChefOfIron: In original Manga. He is shown on screen to be the one that cooks for his household breakfast. It is also implied that his cooking is pretty good no matter how ridiculous it is (his croquette is huge (Sayaka said it’s a Mazinger class croquette referring to its size) and can shoot Rust Tornado (Unleash wind when cut) and Rocket Punch (launch a part of it when its cut, directly to Shiro's mouth), and of course he kicks ass in battle.
* CombatPragmatist: Like you wouldn't believe. In his first appearance, in which he just received Mazinger, his fight is filled by abusing the fact that Mazinger really IS invincible (at least for that point). During his second appearance, he is not above tricking his opponent to think that he gives up the fight only to kick ass. And he does this several time during the course of the series.
* {{Delinquents}}
* DistaffCounterpart: In the Mazinger Angels Z manga (a sequel to Mazinger Angels, a ''Series/CharliesAngels'' parody starring the female main characters of the Mazinger trilogy, with countless {{ShoutOut}}s to other Creator/GoNagai works), Kouji's role was given to Kikunosuke Abashiri, a character of Abashiri Ikka, an early manga from Go Nagai.
* DubNameChange
** In Tranzor Z, Koji was named Tommy Davis, which was somewhat confusing as he was unrelated to the counterparts of Sayaka Yumi and her father, whose last names were also Davis. He was voiced by Creator/GreggBerger in the dub.
** When ''Anime/UFORoboGrendizer'' was shown in the United States as part of ForceFive, Koji's name was Lance Hyatt.
** Italian translators never identified Kabuto as the same character in Grendizer and in the Mazinger series. In the Italian version of Grendizer (broadcast for first in Italy), Koji was called Alcor; in Mazinger Z, Ryo Kabuto; in Great Mazinger, Koji Kabuto. As a result, many in Italy thought that the heroes of Japanese cartoons all looked alike. In the Italian version of Mazinkaiser, he was called Koji Kabuto again.
** The same confusion took place in France: he was called Alcor in the French version of Grendizer (from which the Italian one was taken), and Koji in the French version of Mazinger Z (which was broadcast much later in France).
** The same kind of confusion took place in Arabic speaking nations: While he was still called Koji in the Arabic version of Grendizer, he was called ''Maher'' in the Arabic version of Mazinger Z that was translated after Grendizer's success in the Middle East.
** And in Spain he was called [[AlliterativeName Carlos Caribe]] in the Grendizer dub, despite of he was not renamed in the Mazinger Z dub.
* GeniusDitz: Unlike many similar hot-heads, Koji ''is'' actually exceptionally bright when he allows himself to think things through. This is demonstrated both in the Mazinger Z series, when at least twice he had to completely disable mechanical beasts with hostages inside (one of them being Sayaka's [[IllGirl disabled]] cousin, Yuri); and in the ''Anime/UFORoboGrendizer'' series, where he builds his flying saucer all by himself and later develops the Cyclone Beam. He is also an excellent shot (demonstrated in the Mazinkaiser VS Ankoku Dai Shogun movie when he shoots Archduke Gorgon in both his tiger head and human head with one shot).
** It should be noted, that Koji is sent to America in Anime/GreatMazinger to study, so he can become a scientist since [[spoiler: Kenzo, Koji's father]] mentions that he has the scientist blood of Kabuto inside him. So, it’s pretty much hereditary.
* HamToHamCombat: In the Dynamic Heroes e-manga, Kouji fought the Great Marshall of Hell while riding Mazinger. It is noteworthy as it was, maybe, the first time in the history of the franchise Kouji and [[spoiler:Dr. Hell]] faced each other as both were riding giant robots. Too bad it was a CurbStompBattle.
* HeroicSacrifice: In Anime/CBCharaGoNagaiWorld, [[spoiler: Koji blowing up the Mazinger]]
* HotBlooded: Poster boy for this.
* HotbloodedSideburns: Their sideburns are unmistakable.
* IdiotHero
* IndyPloy: He is able to think strategically and plotting strategies beforehand. However, given his rash, hotheaded nature, he is VERY prone to impulsively rush/leap/dive headfirst into a dangerous situation and figuring out along the way how he will walk out of it alive. These [[http://www.mangago.com/r/l_manga/manga/mazinger_z_relic_of_terror/mf/manga/mazinger_z_relic_of_terror/c000/26/ two]] [[http://www.mangago.com/r/l_manga/manga/mazinger_z_relic_of_terror/mf/manga/mazinger_z_relic_of_terror/c000/27/ pages]] of the "Mazinger Z: Relic of Terror" one-shot are a godd example:
-->'''Kouji:''' There's no choice but for me to go and take it back!
-->'''Sayaka:''' But you don't even know what the enemy is...!
-->'''Kouji:''' I'll find out along the way!
* ItRunsInTheFamily: Despite the fact that he is kind of an IdiotHero at time he is as much as a genius as his father and grandfather. [[spoiler:He is also as bad as his father when it comes to ParentalAbandonment. At least in Anime/GreatMazinger.]]
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold
* TheLancer: To Tetsuya Tsurugi.
* LargeHam
* ManlyTears: He has three VERY memorable tears moments. One is in the beginning, when his grandfather dies in his arms. The other two are in the "Anime/{{Mazinkaiser}} vs. the General of Darkness", [[spoiler: with Dr. Morimori's HeroicSacrifice, and when he finally defeats ALL the Mikene Empire and tearfully screams "My dead friends... I AVENGED YOU ALL!"]]
* MeaningfulName: Kabuto means "Helmet", and Kouji pilots his machine by attaching the Jet Pilder to its head.
* MissingMom: [[spoiler:Tsubasa Nishikori]]
** In episode 90, Dr. Hell fabricated a cyborg looked exactly like her and sent it to the Institute in order to wreak havoc while he made preparations for the final battle. Naturally, that stratagem caused much grief, especially to Shiro.
* NoIndoorVoice: Indoor Voice? What is that “Indoor Voice” stuff you speak of?

!!Shiro Kabuto
!!!Voice Actor: Kazuko Sawada
[[quoteright:262:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Kabuto_Shiro_9865.jpg]]

Shiro is Kouji's younger brother. He is hard-headed, hot-tempered, enthusiastic and nosy. Most of the time, Shiro's role is to add some comic relief to the plot, being the voice of reason when Kouji is doing something dumb or dangerous, and often getting in trouble himself. He remains in Japan when Kouji departs at the beginning of ‘’Anime/GreatMazinger’’, and even he gets given his own HumongousMecha, Junior.

His character acquires a bit more depth in Great Mazinger, as he becomes acquainted with his father Kenzo, who was previously thought to be dead. Toward the end of the series, Shiro finally bonds with Kenzo, [[spoiler: who died shortly thereafter]].



* ActionGirl: She was one of the first female characters in the genre to regularly take an active role in battles and conflicts, rather than be relegated to the sidelines once fighting began or offering non-combat support.
* BattleCouple: With Kouji.
* BelligerentSexualTension: With Kouji.
* BikerBabe
* TheBusCameBack: She and Kouji went to America after the end of the original series, and they were not seen again until the end of Great Mazinger.
* DubNameChange: Jessica Davis in Tranzor Z

* MouthyKid
* PluckyComicRelief
* SmarterThanYouLook: During his first few appearances, his acts make him looking like TooDumbToLive (for starters, while Koji is horrified by the Iron Mask, especially after killing it, all he says is that Koji is so cool for killing the Iron Mask). Later on in the series, he learned to pilot the Pilder in relatively short time ([[FallingIntoTheCockpit bonus points since unlike Koji, he has practically zero experience in piloting the Pilder,]] while Koji mentions that the control is similar to his motorbike) and pulls a BigDamnHeroes several times, that really says something. ([[FridgeBrilliance Of course, he IS a member of Kabuto family]])
* WiseBeyondHisYears: He seems pretty mature for his age. Then again, maybe it is due to he constantly hangs around his brother, who is somewhat immature for his age.
** More because he is forced to life on his own without a parents care. Juzo is implied to spend most of his time to build Anime/MazingerZ, and Koji is handling the household jobs, and go to school, thus leaving him alone.

His character acquires a bit more depth in Great Mazinger, as he becomes acquainted with his father Kenzo, who was previously thought to be dead. Toward the end of the series, Shiro finally bonds with Kenzo, [[spoiler: who died shortly thereafter]].

!! Tropes:

* AnnoyingYoungerSibling: Though [[DumbassHasAPoint he did have good points from time to time]], and sometimes was more mature than ''Kouji'' himself.
* BadassAdorable: He could make some impressive feats when he wanted or needed. [[spoiler:In episode 9 the Professors Morimori, Sewashi and Nossori had been brainwashed by Baron Ashura in helping him. Shiro beat the crap out of them. Agreed, they were brainwashed and they were older men; still, it was one single child against three adult men]]
* MouthyKid
* PluckyComicRelief
* SmarterThanYouLook: During his first few appearances, his acts make him looking like TooDumbToLive (for starters, while Koji is horrified by the Iron Mask, especially after killing it, all he says is that Koji is so cool for killing the Iron Mask). Later on in the series, he learned to pilot the Pilder in relatively short time ([[FallingIntoTheCockpit bonus points since unlike Koji, he has practically zero experience in piloting the Pilder,]] while Koji mentions that the control is similar to his motorbike) and pulls a BigDamnHeroes several times, that really says something. ([[FridgeBrilliance Of course, he IS a member of Kabuto family]])
* WiseBeyondHisYears: He seems pretty mature for his age. Then again, maybe it is due to he constantly hangs around his brother, who is somewhat immature for his age.
** More because he is forced to life on his own without a parents care. Juzo is implied to spend most of his time to build Anime/MazingerZ, and Koji is handling the household jobs, and go to school, thus leaving him alone.
*** And let's not forget [[spoiler:his supposedly dead father was too busy building Great Mazinger to take care of them AND tell them he was alive.]]

She was daughter of Professor Yumi, director of the Photon Lab Institute, and she piloted Aphrodite A, a test prototype giant robot Yumi built. Her mother was deceased and she has a cousin –named Yuri-. Her father was not exactly cold and uncaring, but Sayaka realized that his first priority was his work, and sometimes she felt somewhat alone and craving for proving herself to him.
