* EleventhHourSuperpower: Nero, Jose, and Bario view Carlos as this, even [[LampshadeHanging declaring that he'll give them an]] [[InvokedTrope extra boost when they most need it]]. They're right, and when he wakes up in the final battle, the Eldora Soul gets a massive power boost because he, [[spoiler:having actually read the manual for their upgraded armor, was the only one who was aware of the backup power supply Bucchi had installed and proceeded to promptly activate it.]]

Added DiffLines:

* DeconReconSwitch: They first appear as examples of how a career as hot-blooded pilots to a giant mecha don't have long term benefits once the peace is won, and their boasts about past glories either annoy or embarrass the people around them. But then when danger reemerges, they demonstrate that they are still fearless, noble, badass ''heroes''.

* RedOniBlueOni: Bario is/was the hot-blooded leader of the team, Jose is the cool second-in-command. After decades of adventures they ''still' come to blows over the smallest of slights.

** TheSmartGuy: Carlos is likely the smartest of them all, considering the computer skills he displayed in the penultimate episode, and also being the only one smart enough to [[YouHaveResearchedBreathing read the manual]].

A... very nice, affable old man who is a FriendToAllLivingThings, polite, soft-spoken and loves everyone... except that he's the BigBad. While his motives may seem good, his final goal is [[{{Instrumentality}} morally problematic]]. His charisma is one of his main strengths: he gathered a lot of followers by merely 'helping' them. However, he has also committed his share of murders, namely Van's bride Elena ''and'' Ray's wife Shino, which marked him as the ultimate target of their bloody revenge.
