!Steel Dragon Battle Group

The "Steel Dragon Battle Group" (''Kouryuu Sentai''; officially named in the ''Second Original Generation'') are the collective protagonists of ''Super Robot Wars Original Generation''. Although there are multiple characters from many different games appearing in this group, those listed here are the ones who debut exclusively in ''Original Generation'' {{Continuity}}.

Tropes common to the Steel Dragon Battle Group are:
[[hardline]]
* BadassArmy: Is the "1st Independent Special Squad" of the Earth Federation Army comprised of the best squadrons of HumongousMecha on the planet.
%%* BunnyEarsLawyer
* TheDreaded: According to [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAlpha Selena Recital]], she'd prefer not to engage the group in [[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsGaiden La]] [[BeneathTheEarth Gias]] during the events of ''Dark Prison'', given their extensive campaign success and combat record.
* {{Leitmotif}}: Until ''[[VideoGameRemake Original Generations]]'', certain characters didn't have designated theme songs. "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MGHwR8UprWs Born to Fight]]" and "Rail to the Dangerzone" were the available defaults.
* MeaningfulName: "Kouryuu" is derived from the callsigns of the ''Hagane'' ("Steel 2") and ''Hiryu Custom'' ("Dragon 3") battleships. "Steel" and "dragon" in Japanese are ''koutetsu'' and ''ryuu'', respectively, hence ''kouryuu''.
* ProperlyParanoid: In the ''Second Original Generation'', the crew of the ''Hagane'' becomes this while Ing Egret is staying with them. They had him thoroughly analyzed as to whether he was {{Brainwashed}} or a spy, but nothing came of it. Justified as he was found in the middle of a wreckage in the Pacific Ocean.
* SeenItAll: Extraterrestrials, {{Alternate Universe}}s, ancient HumongousMecha, [[FaceHeelTurn double-crossings]], [[HeelFaceTurn former enemies-turned-allies]], {{Artificial Human}}s, {{Eldritch Abomination}}s, etc...The group has been through a lot, so it should come as no surprise almost all of them show this trope from time to time, particularly members who have been around since the first game. Naturally {{Lampshaded}} by newcomers.
--> (Paraphrased)
-->'''[[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAlpha Arado Balanga]]''': "Wait a minute: you're saying you [[HeelFaceTurn want me to join your team]]?! We were enemies a few days ago!"
-->'''[[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAlpha Ryusei Date]]''': "Eh, it's no big deal. This sort of thing has happened to us before."

!!Elzam von Branstein/Ratsel Feinschmeker (Voiced by Creator/TetsuInada)
[[quoteright:224:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ratsel.jpg]]
[[caption-width-right:224: This caption has been overriden by [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BvbkVAnpcR4 Trombe!]]]]
-->''"Dash, Trombe!"''

The [[HeterosexualLifePartners lifetime partner]] of [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAlpha Sanger Zonvolt]], Elzam von Branstein is the AloofBigBrother of [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAlpha Raidiese F. Branstein]]. He hails from the esteemed Branstein family, HappilyMarried and a SupremeChef. Elzam debuts in ''Original Generation'', but it's filled with a GoodBadBug: due to programming errors, priority for his {{Leitmotif}} was given the highest, thus it always overrides any song, even the FinalBoss. Banpresto took it as a RunningGag and incorporated this "bug" into subsequent games. Although Elzam's one of the headlining generals of the [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsClassic Divine Crusaders]], with the death of [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsClassic Bian Zoldark]], he secretly aids [[TheFederation the Earth Federation Army]] to fight against the invading "Aerogaters". Following the end of the "L5 Campaign", the Earth Federation Army's offensive at defeating the Aerogaters, he and his crew of the battleship ''Kurogane'' vanishes.

Elzam reappears in the sequel, now sporting a [[PaperThinDisguise pair of glasses, calling himself "Ratsel Feinschmecker"]] (erroneously translated by [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsClassic Inspector Vigagi]] as "Mysterious Gourmet"). Once again, he and the ''Kurogane'' crew operate and support the Earth Federation Army in secret. To prove "[[MemeticMutation Real Men Ride Each Other]]", Ratsel's new MidSeasonUpgrade received when liberating the Tesla-Leicht Institute can ''[[TransformingMecha turn into a horse]]'' and have Sanger's own MidSeasonUpgrade mount it (no, '''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yGTlE8w5r_A REALLY]]''').

His debut was popular enough to warrant him a place in the ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsAlpha'' series, ''despite'' appearing first in ''Original Generation'' as his Ratsel persona (which is ''also'' the persona's debut), though he did exist in the background of ''Alpha'' and the earlier, yet obscure ''VideoGame/SuperRobotSpirits''. Still, his first on-screen appearance is in ''Original Generation'', thus he's placed in this category.

Elzam pilots a variety of machines, such as a Guarlion and Huckebein MK III, all painted with black/red/gold colors and called "Trombe", after his black stallion. His definitive mecha is the Dynamic General Guardian "Aussenseiter" ([[GratuitousGerman German for "outsider"]], or less literally, "[[EnsembleDarkhorse dark]] [[IncrediblyLamePun horse]]"). He embodies these tropes:

----------
* AcePilot: A former member of the "Aggressors" (including him, Sanger, Kai Kitamura and [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsClassic Gilliam Yeager]]), a group that had the first use of a HumongousMecha InUniverse. To date, Elzam is still one of the best pilots in the world.
* AceCustom: A Huckebein MK II, Huckebein MK III and a Guarlion Custom, all of them following his [[LawOfChromaticSuperiority black/red/gold coloring motif]]. Although specially designed by Bian for him to use, the Aussenseiter qualifies more as a SuperPrototype.
** Exclusively in ''The Inspectors'', the AnimatedAdaptation of ''Original Generation 2'', Ratsel uses the "[=GuarBein=]" MK III (basically a Huckebein MK III outfitted with parts from his old Guarlion Custom) before receiving the Aussenseiter.
* AFatherToHisMen: He even cooks for them. As a result, the crew of the ''Kurogane'' is fiercely loyal to him.
* AloofBigBrother: As Elzam, he's very good at concealing his emotions, which causes his brother to misunderstand him. His Ratsel persona drops this trope, to the point of being goofy.
** It's possible he adopted the "Ratsel" personality as a means to move away from this trope.
* ArchEnemy: Archibald Grims for Ratsel
* ArtEvolution: Evident in the CoolShades he wears as Ratsel - while they were oblong in the games, they become hexagonal in ''The Inspectors''.
* BadassCape: Aussenseiter has one; in the "Sturm Angriff" attack for ''Original Generations'', the cape is thrown at an enemy to conceal its vision before being blasted to shreds. During the Earth Cradle event in ''The Inspectors'', the cape is used as an AttackReflector.
* BashBrothers: It's a good idea to be part of the good guys' side just to avoid being on the opposite side to him and Sanger. Enemies are unlikely to survive that.
* BGMOverride[=/=] MusicalisInterruptus: [[Pantheon/{{Music}} His trademark]]; in fact, the ''Second Original Generation'' makes it clear players ''cannot change his default BGM to anything else''. However, the games also downplay this as Ratsel is unable to override certain {{Leitmotif}}s such as "[[Characters/SuperRobotWarsDestiny Despair]]", "[[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAlpha Twin Icon]]" and "[[spoiler:Ultra One]]", as well as the orchestrated version of "Destinies" [[spoiler:and the vocal versions of "Victory", "Skill" and "Wings of the Legend"]].
** Amusingly, the first music track Ratsel was unable to override was because an enemy from the anime ''Anime/GoShogun'' was playing ''The Blue Danube'' [[GameplayAndStoryIntegration with gigantic external speakers mounted on the ship]].
* BigDamnHeroes: His debut as Ratsel is basically doing this to the "[[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAlpha2 Project Terrestial Dream]]" crew in ''Original Generation 2''; he also did this earlier in ''Alpha 2'' for whomever is the protagonist in Scenario 31.
* CanonImmigrant: From ''Original Generation'' to ''Alpha''. Interestingly, he exists (sort of) before ''Original Generation'', appearing in [[AllThereInTheManual supplemental materials]] to ''Super Hero Sakusen'' ("Super Hero Operations"). While not directly named, Raidiese recognizes the emblem on a passing-by black mecha as the Branstein family crest. The same applies to the Aussenseiter - it does not appear in ''Alpha 2'', but winds up as Ratsel's machine for the ''Alpha 3'' finale.
* CaptainErsatz: The ''Kurogane'' to the "[[Film/{{Atragon}} Gotengo]]"; naturally, the character himself was created to fill one of the obvious casting holes in the first game (see below).
* CharClone: Primarily more of the {{Trope Maker}} [[TheMentor mentor persona]], [[Anime/MobileSuitZetaGundam Quattro Bajeena]]. He even gives a ShoutOut to Quattro by stating he's "Ratsel Feinschmeker: no more, no less". He also possesses similarities with [[VideoGame/DynastyWarriors Lu Bu]], with whom he shares his voice with.
** The comparisons continue when Creator/TetsuInada also voices another Quattro {{Expy}}, [[Anime/TurnAGundam Harry Ord]]; in fact, one of Ratsel's Gespenst Kick quotes is Ord's {{Kiai}}.
* CombinationAttack: ''Tatsumaki Zankantou'' ("Tornado Battleship-Cleaving Blade")
* CoolHorse: His black stallion Trombe back on his home colony of "Elpis"
* DueToTheDead: Temporarily shelves his Ratsel persona (by removing his shades, no less) during [[spoiler:Captain Daitetsu Minase's]] funeral.
* GratuitousGerman: All of the Aussenseiter's attacks are named in German
* GunsAkimbo: Aussenseiter's DualWielding "Lanze Kanone" {{BFG}}s
* TheGunslinger: Switches between "The Vaporizer" and the "The Woo", especially in the ''Second Original Generation''. Little bits of GunKata are also thrown in.
* HeterosexualLifePartners: Bordering on HoYay; the fact he spends so much time with Sanger has caused this to be a RunningGag among fans. [[spoiler:Taken UpToEleven in the end credits of episode 15 in ''The Inspectors'' with a '''LoinCloth''']].
* ICallItVera: Any machine he uses are always designated by him as "Trombe", ''including the [[CoolShip Kurogane]]'', which was the name of his favorite horse.
* KillTheOnesYouLove, ShootTheDog: When [[spoiler:his wife Cattleya Fujiwara-Branstein]] was held hostage in a hangar bay on Elpis being pumped with poison gas, the terrorist Archibald Grims threatened to gas the rest of Elpis. Elzam was urged by [[spoiler:Cattleya]] to destroy the hangar bay to prevent the gas from seeping into the rest of the colony. He complied.
* {{Leitmotif}}: Most characters have this, but "Trombe!" has reached memetic status due to a bug that caused it to override boss themes.
* LightningBruiser: Elzam carries the defensive stats of a super robot pilot, evasion stat of a real robot pilot and a well-balanced offensive stat tailored to ranged attacks. Coupled with the "Genius" pilot skill[[note]]+20 to accuracy and evasion stats and critical hit rate automatically[[/note]], and his Huckebein MK II "Trombe", Elzam becomes one of the best real robot pilots in the first game. Further augmented in the sequel when he receives the Aussenseiter, which comes with high attack power and armor, alongside mobility that most supers don't usually have and his "Ace Bonus"[[note]]When Ratsel achieves 50 kills or more, +10% to ranged stat[[/note]].
* MechanicalHorse: Aussenseiter's "Pferd Mode"
* PaperThinDisguise: No one knows why he insists on doing this, though the going theory is it's [[TheAtoner his way of turning over a new leaf]]. Everybody goes along with it since it's easier to play dumb than it is to explain why a former (and infamous) Divine Crusaders general is working with them.
** StartingANewLife: It seems he's not trying to hide ''who'' he is, rather he's trying to project a new image for himself. Elzam had a reputation for being aloof and hard to read, but as "Ratsel", he's much more approachable.
* RealMenWearPink: Even with a bare minimum of ingredients, [[RealMenCook Ratsel can still churn out a world-class gourmet feast]].
* RedAndBlackAndEvilAllOver: Subverted; began as a villain, but [[NobleDemon he's squarely built on original intentions of Bian's Divine Crusaders]]. When he pulls a HeelFaceTurn, he disappears soon afterwards, only to he reappear as Ratsel, gets the Aussenseiter, [[BunnyEarsLawyer but occasionally winds up playing exceptionally goofy that his brother considers it an embarrassment]].
* SupremeChef: Doubling with ChefOfIron, he's one of the few to be immune to the GargleBlaster made by [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAlpha Kusuha Mizuha]], going so far as to ''identify every ingredient'' in the dreaded drink.
* ATasteOfPower: In the prologue scenario of the first ''Original Generation'' game for Ryusei's route
* ThemeMusicPowerUp: "Trombe!" overrides all...except maybe [[Anime/GoShogun Bundol's]] "Blue Danube"
** Banpresto seems to be getting a little tired of the glitch as well. "Free Battle Mode" in ''Original Generation Gaiden'' allows players to force [=BGMs=] on battles, meaning they have the power to (finally) override "Trombe".
* ThrowingYourShieldAlwaysWorks: Aussenseiter's "Schulterplatte"

!!Latooni Subota (Voiced by Riko Hirai)
[[quoteright:220:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/latooni.jpg]]
Latooni Subota is one of the "Boosted Children" of the "The School", a Federation-funded academy that trained children to become mecha pilots. Unfortunately, as the technology was still in its infancy, many were mentally and physically conditioned to handle the stress of piloting. It was so harsh that by the time advances rendered the program obsolete, only three students survived: Latooni was ''not'' one of them. During a routine training regiment, she was lost in a crash and deemed "killed-in-action" by The School. However, Latooni was found by two Federation fighter pilots, Giado Venerdi and Garnet Sandi, who took her to a hospital and, unable to find any identification other than her designation "Latooni 11", effectively raised her as their daughter and gave her a surname ([[TemporalThemeNaming "Subota" is Russian for "saturday", which falls between "venerdi" (friday) and "sandi" (sunday)]]). Despite being a child, she's allowed to become a fighter pilot, even placed in the same squad as Giado and Garnet. The rather shy and withdrawn girl responds only to them, but her skills as a pilot more than makes up for it.

When assigned to the ''Hagane'' battleship, Latooni meets the Ryusei of the "[[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAlpha SRX Team]]". Being around the AscendedFanboy considerably opens up her personality and loosens her reservations, including a wardrobe change, courtesy of Garnet. Sporting [[Main/ElegantGothicLolita a really cute, frilly dress]], she's complemented by many of the crew, furthering her CharacterDevelopment. After the [[CivilWar Divine Crusaders War]], [[Main/TheRemnant Divine Crusader Remnants]] attempt to seize the [[Main/TheKingdom Dukedom of Riskent]]. Assigned to protect the nation's headstrong [[MySignificanceSenseIsTingling and clairvoyent]] Princess Shine Hausen, Latooni is assigned to her as a bodyguard. Unfortunately, the princess is kidnapped by a Federation traitor and taken to Adler Koch, a Main/MadScientist who happens to be the former head instructor at The School. With the help of her allies, Latooni saves her new friend, and permanently rids the world of a big source of her early misery. Following the L5 Campaign, Latooni vows to find the rest of the Boosted Children.

In the sequel, Latooni is working alongside Raidiese and Kai as part of the reformed Aggressors. While testing the new Wild Falken, they are attacked by Divine Crusader Remnants and they [[GrandTheftPrototype steal the machine]]. To her horror, Latooni discovers [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAlpha Arado Balanga and Seolla Schweizer]], her former Schoolmates and close friends, are aligned with the Remnants, including their mutual CoolBigSis Ouka Nagisa. Worse, they are under the influence of Agilla Setme, another ex-School instructor [[MadScientist with a penchant]] [[MindManipulation for brainwashing]]. By ''Original Generation Gaiden'', she still continues to serve on the Aggressors, now accompanied by Arado, Seolla and ex-[[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAdvance Shadow-Mirror operative Lamia Loveless]].

During the onset of the "Sealing War" in the ''Second Original Generation'', Latooni finds out there are ''more'' Boosted Children survivors. However, Chienne, Chien and Chiot are not as willing to reform like Arado and Seolla and turn from their new Gaia Sabers employer. Although she pities their delusions of being the greatest there is, Latooni is forced to kill them. At the end of the game, Princess Shine offers her a small job of being an IdolSinger for ceremonial purposes in Riksent.

Latooni originally used a generic fighter jet, but is quickly switched out to a spare Gespenst aboard the ''Hagane'' as soon as it's available. In ''Original Generations'', she ends up in Ryusei's hand-me-down "Wildraubtier"[[note]]To reflect what wasn't mandated by plot in the original release of the first game, but what virtually everyone did by the end-game[[/note]]. When Riksent is attacked by the "Neo Divine Crusaders" in ''Original Generation 2'', Princess Shine unveils the "Fairlions", a pair of ceremonial mecha she personally commissioned, giving Latooni the Fairlion-S(ilver) to use as her personal unit. By the ''Second Original Generation'', the old Wildraubtier is retooled into the new "Wildraubtier Schnabel", though she can use the Schnabel and Fairlion-S interchangeably. She and her machines follow these tropes:
[[hardline]]
* AceCustom: Fairlion-S and Wildraubtier Schnabel
* BadassAdorable [[ElegantGothicLolita Gothic Lolita]]: The "gothic" part's been retconned due to ''Original Generations''. To date, Latooni's only worn the outfit when piloting twice. She still wears it off-duty, though.
** The ''Second Original Generation'' takes this to new heights: when executing its CombinationAttack, the Fairlion-S will ''switch out her uniform for the outfit'', then switch back afterwards. It seems a sense of fashion is a crucial part of the attack.
* BeautifulAllAlong: To the point her ''adoptive parents'' briefly have trouble recognizing her.
* BiTheWay: ''[[ZigzaggingTrope Possibly]]''; while she generally seems very committed to Ryusei and doesn't really have eyes for anyone else, there's a fair bit of "suggestive" content with Shine (see her entry). That said, the tone is very different from her flat-out, textbook affection for Ryusei and is mostly limited to subtext, thus it's hard to say definitively.
* BreakTheCutie: Until she escapes The School, but even then, boatloads of this re-occurs as School instructors and surviving Boosted Children re-appear in her life.
* ChestBlaster: Fairlion's "Vostok Laser".
* CombinationAttack, DancingTheme: "Royal Heart Breaker".
* Deuteragonist: In ''Original Generation 2'', Latooni can be considered this (co-sharing with Arado) due to The School story-line being the one with the most focus next to the ''[[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsCompact2 Super Robot Wars Impact]]'' plot.
* DistaffCounterpart: Loosely to [[Anime/SuperDimensionFortressMacross Maxmillian Jenius/Sterling]], in order to fill the playable roster in the first game[[note]]Both characters fly [[TransformingMecha transformable fighter planes]], wear glasses, have [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair exotic-colored hair]], very good stats and growths (particularly evasion), yet socially distant from their teammates before opening up[[/note]]. As CharacterizationMarchesOn, this trope becomes less evident; the ''Second Original Generation'' brings this back a bit, if only because the Wildrauptier Schnabel's strongest attack literally looks like it's lifted frame-for-frame from one of Maximillian's maneuvers in ''Anime/SuperDimensionFortressMacross'', straight down to flipping between fighter plane and humanoid mode to stay on her target.
** Somewhat less obvious are parallels to [[Anime/MobileSuitZetaGundam Kamille Bidan]]: both characters despise conflict and desire some semblance of a peaceful life, are mechanical designers in their spare time and close to women who are forced into a machine that drives them mad; furthermore, the Wildraubtier is the [[Anime/MobileSuitZetaGundam Zeta Gundam]] with the SerialNumbersFiledOff. The primary difference between them are their personalities: while Kamille is open about his distate for war, Latooni isn't quite "screaming mad" about it.
* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: The scene in ''Original Generation Gaiden'' where she helps Ryusei devise a CombinationAttack with his teammate [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAlpha Mai Kobaysahi]] carries undertones of IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy.
* DualWielding: Wildraubtier Schnabel carries a pair of "Blade Sai".
* FatalAttractor: Everyone near her always gets into bad situations - [[spoiler:her School friends die, Shine gets plugged into the GEIM System BrainwashedAndCrazy, Seolla gets placed with lots of memory modifications and attacks Latooni and Arado, Rai goes NotSoStoic when facing Archibald and almost gets killed, Ouka pulls a HeroicSacrifice and Lamia nearly gets KilledOffForReal from the ODE System]]
* FragileSpeedster: The Fairlion is extremely fragile, as in "generic fighter jet"-fragile[[note]]Justified since it's an "[[AMechByAnyOtherName Armored Module]]", which are derived from fighter jets[[/note]]. However, this is offset by the machine armed with a "Missile Jammer"[[note]]Gain a 50% chance of evading missile-based attacks[[/note]], a "Beam Coat" barrier[[note]]Reduce beam-based attacks by 1200 points of damage[[/note]] and can activate "Mirror Image"[[note]]At 130 Will, gain a 50% chance of evading any attack[[/note]]. Its "Full Upgrade Bonus" is a 20% increase to mobility, and in Latooni's hands (coupled with her having the "Genius" pilot skill), most enemies wouldn't be able to hit the machine.
* TheGlassesGottaGo: Played straight in the original game, then subverted when ''Original Generations'' {{Retcon}}ned it into {{Meganekko}}.
* GotMeDoingIt: Due to Ryusei's {{Otaku}}ness, putting her into other mecha will result in her CallingYourAttacks, often with a dash of HotBlooded; at present, this has leaked into her attacks for her default mecha.
* HeroWorshipper: Of Ryusei, but in her case, it's more of a flat-out crush.
* IconicSequelCharacter[=/=]SeriesMascot: Although far from the first original character made by Banpresto, Latooni was just an "extra" character to fill in a gap left by the lack of licensed characters. Her contribution to the first game amounts to a single scene in one particular route players aren't required to follow, with no unique unit or dedicated {{Leitmotif}}. Nearly a decade later, she has two {{Ace Custom}}s to her name, two {{Leitmotif}}s, one of the most famous attacks in franchise history, and arguably the poster child for the OriginalGeneration concept. While not as franchise-defining as [[Characters/MasouKishin Masaki Andoh]], Ryusei, Kusuha or Sanger, Latooni's instantly recognizable to [=SRW=] fans.
* {{Leitmotif}}: Notably has two - her personal theme, "Brass Sincerity", and "Fairy Dang-Sing" (localized as "Fairy Dancing") when using the Fairlion.
* NerdGlasses: Before her major CharacterDevelopment, she wore these; following that...
** {{Meganekko}}: ...she switches to a pair of these.
* RedOniBlueOni: She's the purple (in place of blue) while Shine's red.
* SaiGuy: Wildraubtier Schnabel
* ShoutOut: The Fairlions, Royal Heart Breaker, "W-INK System" and "Fairy Dancing" theme are tributes to the ''Wink'' Japanese idol duo. To further the shout, the ''Second Orginal Generation'' animation for the Royal Heart Breaker transforms her into a MagicIdolSinger.
* ShrinkingViolet: Pre-CharacterDevelopment
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: Perhaps the worst offender of all originals. Her name's always given in ''cyrillic'' when spelled out in official sources (which does confirm her Russian heritage, at least). The given name is "латунь суббота", which causes another problem since it's MISSING A SYLLABLE (specifically the "i") and is therefore inconsistent with the katakana given. As a result, a number of players have taken to calling her "Latune" (an actual Russian word, as noted below), but many still call her "Latooni" out of inertia and the better katakana match.
* ThemeNaming: The Boosted Children classes are all named after metals. "Latune" ("Latooni" is an improper romanization/katakana interpretation) [[MeaningfulName means "brass" in Russian]].
* TokenMiniMoe: She was 14 years-old during the first ''Original Generation'' and arguably the poster girl of the trope for this {{Continuity}}.
* TransformingMecha: Wildraubtier (Schnabel)

!!Kai Kitamura (Voiced by Tadahisa Saizen)
[[quoteright:150:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/193936258955480017.jpg]]
-->''"I won't say that [[PowerFist one fist is enough to destroy the world]]...[[BadassNormal But it can certainly destroy you!!]]"''

The last active alumnus of the elite Aggressors, Kai is the one who serves consistently with the Earth Federation Army, while his former teammates went about their ways and assist in another capacity. A married man with a daughter, he's commonly known as a "Demon Instructor" for his nasty, but effective methods of training. He's also an acquaintance of [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsMX "Cry Wolves" commander Albero Est]]. Currently, he's training the new generation of Aggressors, starting with Latooni and Raidiese, but after ''Original Generation 2'', lets Rai go back to work with the SRX Team, while he drafts Lamia, Arado and Seolla; following the ''Second Original Generation'', he extends the same invitation to [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsMX Hugo Medio and Aqua Centrum]].

In contrast to other veterans, Kai prefers to use the good ol' fashioned mass-produced Gespensts, but is ''so'' [[{{Badass}} experienced and skilled]] he can make it perform on par with an AceCustom. As of the ''Second Original Generation'', Kai uses the new mass-produced Gespenst MK II Custom that can change between 3 different frames (by default, he uses the "Type-N"). He and the Type-N embodies these tropes:

[[hardline]]
* AcePilot: Aside from being one of the top pilots in the military, he's one of the Aggressors (who ''invented mecha combat''), to wit Kai does all of it in a [[MechaMook lowly Gespenst]].
* AscendedExtra: Back in ''Original Generation'', Kai was just a regular military {{Face}}, of which either Ryusei or [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsCompact2 Kyosuke Nanbu]] ran into occasionally. Like Latooni, Kai is on the roster to fill in an absence of characters who would later appear. Come ''Original Generation 2'', he's effectively the field commander of the entire team, the only active Aggressor in combat (Gilliam is an intelligence officer usually away on his own, while Sanger and Elzam are still technically traitors) and one of the first consistently-appearing characters in the party for this game and ''Original Generation Gaiden''.
** BreakoutCharacter: Although not the bigger breakout than say, Kyosuke, alongside being established as a MemeticBadass, Kai is rendered the epitome of a pilot who can turn a {{Mook}}-level HumongousMecha into a weapon of mass destruction.
* AFatherToHisMen: By ''Original Generation Gaiden'', Kai is the one of the highest-ranking officers among the cast. As such, he takes the welfare of his soldiers VERY seriously. This attitude earns him the admiration and respect of those under his command, since they appreciate having such a hardened, professional veteran (not to mention a good man) watching out for them.
* {{Badass}}
** BadassCreed: Develops one in the ''Second Original Generation'' - one of his combat dialogue when using the Gespenst is ''"Soku. Ryu. Geki"'', which translates into "[[LightningBruiser Speed]]. [[NoHoldsBarredBeatdown Flow]]. [[TalkToTheFist Strike]]." If paraphrased into modern western military parlance, it roughly means "Hit fast. Hit often. Hit hard."
** BadassMustache: Has a mustache, is [[GoodHairEvilHair a good "military man"]], and is the series' poster man of...
** BadassNormal: While there are plenty of "normal" humans on the roster, Kai stands out because he doesn't have any special abilities/enhancements, access to a SuperPrototype or exceptional luck - more importantly, he doesn't need to use a SuperRobot, let alone a fancy one-of-a-kind SuperPrototype. Just give him a [[RedshirtArmy mass-produced]] MechaMook and some basic weapons, and he's good to go.
*** To elaborate, in ''Original Generation Gaiden'', he commandeers a mass-produced [[RealRobot Gespenst MK II]] and goes against a rampaging, AI-controlled "[[Characters/SuperRobotWarsMX Wendigo]]" SuperRobot... using ''manual'' controls, without preset commands. [[http://img188.imageshack.us/img188/3370/ogchronicle1230.jpg Here's just a demonstration]] [[http://img251.imageshack.us/img251/498/1250016824414.jpg of what he can do]]. In the same game, he gets [[AceCustom his own customized version of the semi mass-produced Gespenst MK II with two sets of Plasma Stakes, one for each arm]]. Most people tend to forget he's a [[IKnowKarate close-quarters combat expert]].
* ColonelBadass: Major, actually, but still fits as he's the highest ranked officer in the Battle Group's mobile forces.
* CoolOldGuy: But not ''exactly'' old; he's still in his thirties. ''Saying'' he's old, however, is his BerserkButton.
* EstablishingCharacterMoment: It happens somewhat late in the first game, but Kai demolishes a number of Lions while cut off from his allies and submerged in water (thus lowering the performance of his Gespenst). A ShowDontTell moment, since it's carried out via GameplayAndStoryIntegration.
* DrillSergeantNasty, SergeantRock: He made Masaki stand straight for an hour for misconduct and put Arado through hell in the training simulator.
* EliteMook: Essentially Kai's initial characterization - a powerful grunt with a PaletteSwap HumongousMecha yet extremely good at kicking ass with the tools he's got. This trope has been slowly phased out of him by ''Original Generation Gaiden''.
* MechaExpansionPack: The Gespenst MK II M Custom in the ''Second Original Generation'' can interchange between equipment types. Katina Tarask and Russel Bagman's machines share this ability, too.
* JackOfAllStats: Only in the first game; his late appearance in Ryusei's route didn't help the case.
** LightningBruiser: Rectified in the sequel and ''Original Generations''. As the middle man of the Aggresors, Kai also has the "Genius" pilot skill and good evasion stats compared to Elzam and Gilliam, with a high defense stat like Sanger's. Unlike his peers, Kai's melee and ranged stats are balanced. Instead, his specialty is to deal high damage in the shortest amount of time, thanks to starting the game with the "Attacker" pilot skill[[note]]At 130 Will, increase damage dealt by all attacks by 20%[[/note]] and later learning the "Drive" Spirit Command[[note]]+30 to Will[[/note]]. Finally, Kai is one of the few characters with access to the "Soul" Spirit Command [[note]]Deal 2.5 times the damage for the next attack[[/note]].
* {{Leitmotif}}: "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yOxINwtkUzk&feature=related Rushing Dandy]]"
* SwissArmyGun: The Type-N's "[=F2W=] Folding Cannon" fires normal beam rounds, but can extend the barrel to fire a WaveMotionGun.
* TeamDad: For the new Aggressors or even his fellow alumni.
* UnderestimatingBadassery: In ''Original Generation Gaiden'', Donna Gallagher thinks she can take Kai's students hostage, assault the military base, and have the Wendigo completely overwhelm Kai while he's using an obsolete machine. [[{{Understatement}} Bad idea...]]

!!Katina Tarask (Voiced by Asami Yaguchi)
[[quoteright:150:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/206602632906482776.jpg]]
-->''"I'll show you the harsh realities of war!"''

A fighter pilot assigned to the ''Hiryu Custom'' battleship, Katina acquires Kyosuke's old Gespenst MK II (and painted it red) after he received his Alt Eisen. She has two sides to her personality: (excited) angry and REALLY angry. She tends to display an inferiority complex about her piloting skill whenever anyone else is chosen to pilot a unique mecha. Although she winds up using the "[[TransformingMecha R-Gun]]", she switches back to her good ol' Gespenst by ''Original Generation 2''. Unlike most characters, Katina is one of the more easily-suspicious people among the crews: if the others gladly welcome someone who pulled a HeelFaceTurn, she'll likely be the first to say "Hey, think twice! He/she was an enemy! What if...", only to be rebuked back and she usually accepts them again. She leads the "Octo Squad", originally consisting of herself and subordinate Russel, but drafts [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAlpha Tasuku Shinguji and Leona Garstein]] by ''Original Generation 2''.

While most players believe she's a completely original character for the games, Katina made her debut from an earlier [=SRW=] [[CardGames trading card game]] with different settings: she's a sniper and her default mecha's the monstrous "[[http://srwog.velv.net/og_mecha/gabl.html GAB-L]]", which is said to have claws filling up NightmareFuel a lot. This is understandable, seeing as [[Anime/MazingerZ Dr. Hell]] built it. As of the ''Second Original Generation'', Katina uses the [[http://www.famitsu.com/news/201105/images/00043749/GU146hyYp6778G4ajTv7s9yAcoU9z77X.jpg Gespenst MK II M Custom]]; like Kai and Russel's versions, it can change into different frames (by default, she uses the "Type-G").

Tropes associated with Katina and the Type-G are:
[[hardline]]
* CharacterizationMarchesOn: Players are likely to forget she was designed to be a sniper or she used to pilot something like the GAB-L. Currently, Katina's more known for her melee-based stats and crazed HotBlooded personality, who's usually stuck with common Gespenst units.
* ChestBlaster: Type-G's "Mega Blaster Cannon"
* ColdSniper: Subverted without being a FriendlySniper, either. Back in the first game, her stats favor ranged attacks, but she's crazy HotBlooded. The sequels averts this by putting her stats towards melee.
* DislikesTheNewGuy: She's the most likely to be suspicious of anyone who switches to her side.
* DrillSergeantNasty: Moreso towards Tasuku and Arado. Also mixes this with SergeantRock.
* GlassCannon: In ''Original Generation'', she gets the "Valor" Spirit Command[[note]]Deal twice the damage for the next attack[[/note]] early in the game; beginning with ''Original Generations'', she gets access to the more powerful "Soul". Unfortunately, her defense is shoddy and horrible, alongside extremely poor Will gains.
* HotBlooded: Both in personality and in gameplay terms, having one of the cheapest "Valor" to cast. In the ''Second Original Generation'', she gains access to "Soul" instead.
* {{Leitmotif}}: "TA.CO.NA.GU.RI"; translated into English as "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=euIdHMrNvHQ Octo H-I-T!]]".
* LightningBruiser: Played with - she has one of the worst evasion stats on the roster until she reaches a certain level, the trick being getting her ''to'' survive until that point. One way is to switch her into a SuperRobot, such as the "Giganscudo"; since the Gigan is a monster of a tank, her low evasion stat becomes irrelevant. With the ''Second Original Generation'', her natural "Counter"[[note]]Pilot has a chance to perform a counterattack first when targeted by an enemy[[/note]] pilot skill plus a decent skill stat growth allows her to be on the front lines quite easily.
* MechaExpansionPack: For her Gespenst MK II M Custom in the ''Second Original Generation''.
* MismatchedEyes: Red and green pre-ContinuityReboot; ''Original Generations'' sets it back to purple and green like the trading card game.
* RunningGag: Always getting passed over for a chance to pilot whichever fancy new machine the ''Hiryu Custom'' crew get a hold of.
* SergeantRock: Katina may have temper issues, but she's the leader of the Octo Squad. In fact, she's one of the few characters in the ''Second Original Generation'' who can initiate a "[[AttackPatternAlpha Maximum Break]]" (the others being the more reserved commanders like Kyosuke, Kai and [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAlpha Viletta Vadim]]).
* ShockAndAwe: Type-G's "Jet Magnum" and "Jet Phantom"
* {{Tsundere}}: Except there's [[AvertedTrope no "dere" here, folks]]!
* UpToEleven: A regular Gespenst MK II has a set of three "Plasma Stakes" on its left arm. The Type-G has ''eight'' - three on each arm and two on the knees.

!!Russel Bagman (Voiced by Takashi Aoki)
[[quoteright:150:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/196188058769515645.jpg]]
--> ''"...Lt. Jg. Katina's yelling is worse than this..!"''

Katina's loyal (some would say devoted) subordinate, Russel's rather unremarkable in most repects otherwise, save for a very high defense stat and DivingSave abilities in-game that make him an excellent meat...err, "metal" shield. Where Katina goes, so will Russel.

The actual extent of their relationship is so low-key, it's rather hard to tell ''where'' it is. Both seem to think highly of each other (and often worry about how the other feels about their performance in combat), but show none of the usual UnresolvedSexualTension, problems or affection any of the other overt couples have. At the very least, they're close friends (whether they realize it or not) who have become completely comfortable with each other.
[[hardline]]
* AceCustom: Like Kai and Katina, Russel's pilots the Gespenst MK II M Custom, which uses 3 different frames for the ''Second Original Generation''. By default, he uses the "Type-C".
** CompositeCharacter: The Type-C is really a Gespenst MK II outfitted with the Schultzwald's weaponry.
* BoringButPractical: Despite lacking "Valor", Russel is one of the most useful pilots in the games thanks to having useful support-based Spirit Commands like "Rouse"[[note]]Increase adjacent ally's Will by 10[[/note]], "Cheer"[[note]]Earn double the amount of experience points for the next combat phase for any ally[[/note]] and "Faith"[[note]]Restore all HP to any ally[[/note]] for extremely cheap, alongside a high Spirit Point pool. Coupled with his natural ability to "Support Attack"[[note]]Provide offensive support to an adjacent ally[[/note]] and "Support Defend"[[note]]Provide defensive support to an adjacent ally[[/note]], this makes him one of the best pilots for the Valsion Custom back in the first game.
* TheGenericGuy: Quite possibly the most "normal" person in all of ''Original Generation'' without being a FlatCharacter. Additionally, Russel is the only original character (sub-pilots excluded) who doesn't have a personal {{Leitmotif}}. Ironically, this makes him ''stand out'' to many fans.
** In fact, he gets along with [[Characters/MasouKishin Gennacy I. Kozireh]] because of this status.
* GetAHoldOfYourselfMan: He actually slaps Katina once after she gets too hotheaded... ''even for her''.
* KillSat: Oddly enough, the requirements for the new secret equippable weapon "Free Electron Cannon" in the ''Second Original Generation'' are related to him.
* {{Leitmotif}}: Averted; Russel's the only playable character without a designated theme song.
* MechaExpansionPack: For his Gespenst MK M II Custom in the ''Second Original Generation''.
* MyNaymeIs: Although [[http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/Russel not entirely made up]], his name's more typically spelled with two "l's".
* {{Nerf}}: Russel in the first game is extremely good as a tanker, to the point of approaching GameBreaker levels, thanks to having "SP Up"[[note]]Increase maximum Spirit Points by 3 per level (maximum level 9)[[/note]] and "Support Defend" as starting pilot skills. In the sequels, he loses "SP Up", and subsequent games no longer become kind to characters designated as tankers.
* TakingTheBullet: Pretty much his stock in trade, game-wise. In fact, a trophy lampshades this in the ''Second Original Generation'' entitled "The Man They Call A Fortress", which requires Russel to defend an ally four times in one turn.
* OnlySaneMan: He looks like this at first, yet looking at Russel's devotion to Katina and one can't help but wonder just ''how'' sane he actually is.
* {{Shoulder Cannon}}s: Type-C's "Twin Beam Cannons"
* ShoutOut: Based on his appearance, one can argue Russel's meant to be an AffectionateParody of [[{{Mooks}} unnamed grunts]] in the {{Mecha}} genre that [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5TA-QJ2d3kk get one line and die horribly afterwards]], except Russel's averted death so far.
* StoneWall: Russel's defense stat is the best in the games.
* SubordinateExcuse: [[WildMassGuessing Kinda... sorta... maybe...]] whatever.
** It's surprising when considering the usual fan reaction to relationships like this, but very few players truly ship Russel and Katina, perhaps because it's more funny the way it currently is.
* WhatExactlyIsHisJob: Aside from being TheLancer to Katina full-time, he sometimes doubles as her personal assistant, sparring partner, [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/russel_drinkcarrier.jpg drink carrier]], TheSmartGuy (with his knowledge of Stonehenge in ''Original Generation 2'' being an example), TheBigGuy (visually, he at least appears the tallest out of the Octo Squad) and TheQuietOne).

!!Radha Byraban (Voiced by Creator/ReiSakuma)
[[quoteright:150:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/205195258022947242.jpg]]
A staff member at Mao Industries, Radha Byraban is introduced in ''Original Generation'' via Kyosuke's route. Although she has a custom white "Schutzwald", Radha mainly heads out to the battlefield when the need arises. She first appears helping Gilliam Yeager protect a shuttle (and its cargo) from being seized by the Divine Crusaders. They succeed in keeping their enemies away, but Sanger (hiding his identity) disables the launch platform, forcing the ''Hiryu Custom'' to transport the cargo. After Mao Industries is attacked, Radha goes on to help the ''Hiryu Custom'' and its efforts to stop the United Colony Corps. It's during this time Radha introduces her personality quirk: she's a fan of yoga, albeit a ''big'' fan - so much she tries to teach it to everyone she meets. HilarityEnsues when this first happens: [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsCompact2 Excellen Browning]] and Katina loudly complain about their experiences, while Viletta is in so much pain she can't even speak. The reactions of the other pilots to Radha's offers of yoga lessons come close to rivaling the reactions to Kusuha and her GargleBlaster.

In ''Original Generation 2'', Radha's still working with Mao Industries. More details about her backstory are revealed: she was a test subject at the ICS (the same institute where the [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAlpha Kobayashi sisters]] were); however, Radha was released from the tests by Cuervo Cero, a scientist she worked for and developed a friendly relationship with some time before the accident involving Mai that destroyed the ICS. When Radha meets Arado Balanga and learns Cero worked at The School, she's heartbroken he had stayed to work on the divisive program. Radha commits herself to assisting Arado and Latooni in rescuing Seolla and Ouka from Agilla Setme's control and confront Cuervo. When she gets the chance to meet Cero during the Federation's assault on the Earth Cradle, he reveals he's always cared for the Boosted Children, but hated himself for putting them through the program. When the installation begins to collapse, Cero's injured and pinned down after an attack from [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAlphaGaiden Uruz Egret]]. Radha tries to save him, but Cero tells her to leave take care of Boosted Children in his stead.

By ''Original Generation Gaiden'', Radha retires from piloting to become a civilian contractor with the Aggressors, but will return to piloting duties if the situation warrants. Since the Schutzwald is rendered obsolete by the time of the ''Second Original Generation'', Radha currently uses a white-colored Gespenst MK II M custom with the Type-C as her default. She adheres to the following tropes:
[[hardline]]
* BodyHorror: A less disturbing variation. Somehow, she's able to contort her body in such a fashion that she was able to fit inside a Huckebein MK II cockpit with [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAlpha Brooklyn "Bullet" Luckfield]] when he first sortied in it. Naturally, this scared the living shit out of him.
** YouDoNOTWantToKnow: Don't bother asking Bullet, either; he was too freaked out to give details.
* {{Flanderization}}: She expresses concern that people see her interest in yoga as her only personality trait.
* MeaningfulName: Her {{Leitmotif}}, "Padma no Asana", translates to [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0jHesidd2f4 "Asana of Destruction"]], ''quite'' the opposite of Radha's behavior, unless it's a joke towards her yoga poses.
* PsychicPowers: Played with; even though Radha was a test subject at the ICS, she never developed the same level of telekinetic abilities other Psychodrivers exhibit. However, she does have a heightened sense of awareness compared to non-psychics, but this doesn't qualify her as a Psychodriver.
* SayMyName: Does this after [[spoiler:Cuervo]] dies during the Earth Cradle's collapse.
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: Is it "Byraban" or "Bairaban"?
* TokenMinority: She's Indian, and her nationality is reflected in her battle dialogue.

!!Shine Hausen (Voiced by Reina Kaihara)
[[quoteright:150:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/201817558304523091.jpg]]
Crown princess of the "[[Main/TheKingdom Dukedom of Riskent]]", a small independent state in the Mediterranean, Shine was born with [[Main/MySignificanceSenseIsTingling the ability to see the future]] and for this reason (plus her kindgom's large gold mines), Riskent's attacked by Divine Crusaders Remnants after the defeat of their leaders at Aidoneus Island. She's rescued by the SRX Team (or "ATX Team" if playing on Kyosuke's route), and brought to the Izu Base in Japan, with Latooni and Raidiese serving as her bodyguards. Her safety is compromised when she gets kidnapped by a mole in Federation Command and taken to Adler Koch, who places her in a Valsion Custom equipped with the "GEIM System", brainwashing her into a soldier to help him take down Federation Headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland. Fortunately, she's rescued before the system can cause permanent damage to her mind.

Riskent's invaded by the Neo Divine Crusaders ''again'' in ''Original Generation 2'', and Shine barely escapes capture. This time, however, she's ready to fight back; to that extent, she personally commissioned the Fairlions with the help of the Tesla-Leicht Institute. With Latooni helming the Fairlion-S, Shine uses the Fairlion-G(old) and joins the ''Hagane'' battleship to re-take her nation. Although Riksent is safe again, Shine takes the initiative to journey with the crew to combat and defeat the Shadow-Mirror, [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsCompact2 Einst]], and [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsClassic Inspectors]], to ensure they don't become a threat to not only Riksent, but the world.

Tropes associated with her are:
[[hardline]]
* BodyguardCrush, HeroWorshipper: Of Raidiese; this starts to fade beginning with ''Original Generation Gaiden'' in favor of a focus on her relationship with Latooni and interacting with other pilots.
* ChestBlaster: Fairlion's "Vostok Laser"
* CombinationAttack, DancingTheme: "Royal Heart Breaker"
* CompositeCharacter, CaptainErsatz: Mainly a spunkier take on the various high-society/regal female characters throughout the ''Franchise/{{Gundam}}'' franchise; her experience with the Valsion Custom, however, seems to be lifted from [[Anime/MobileSuitZetaGundam Four Murasame]].
** The latter works further, given that, while character-wise she's more of a [[Anime/SuperDimensionFortressMacross Maximillian Jenius-type]], Latooni's Wildraubtier is basically the Zeta Gundam.
%%* EverythingsBetterWithPrincesses
* ErmineCapeEffect: Evident in ''Original Generation 2'' for the UsefulNotes/GameBoyAdvance during her SuperMovePortraitAttack; ''Original Generations'' {{Re Tool}}s this by giving her an actual pilot suit, but still customized for her.
** The ''Second Original Generation'' re-implements this in a hilarious way: as with Latooni, the Fairlion somehow swaps out her flight suit for her "princess idol" outfit during Royal Heart Breaker.
* FragileSpeedster: As with Latooni's Fairlion-S, the Fairlion-G has similar weapon loadouts and stats, but carries the same on-board "Missile Jammer", "Beam Coat" barrier and can activate "Mirror Image".
* GirlWithPsychoWeapon: During her BrainwashedAndCrazy stint
* {{Leitmotif}}: "Fairy Dang-Sang" (localized alternately as "Fairy Dancing" or "Dancing Fairies")
* MistakenForBadass: Briefly by [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsCompact3 Folka Albark]] in ''Original Generation Gaiden'' - since he's still [[FishOutOfWater learning about Earth customs with the Shura culture in the back of his mind]], the term "princess", in Shura-speak, means Shine should be physically strong enough to ''pound him flat''.
* MySignificanceSenseIsTingling: Known genetically to be the strongest user of clairvoyance her family's ever produced.
* NeatFreak: Implied in the ''Second Original Generation''. How did she appear in [[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsGaiden La]] [[BeneathTheEarth Gias]]? Apparently, she was cleaning her Fairlion-G just as the summoning occurs.
* RebelliousPrincess: At first; averted when she reappears in the sequel.
* RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething: Again, subverted in ''Original Generation'', but played straight once Shine gets her Fairlion.
* ShipTease: ''Original Generations'' version of the Royal Heart Breaker, though some official art with her and Latooni feels [[LesYay somewhat less ambiguous]]. Meanwhile, the ''Second Original Generation'' takes the innuendo further with a teased AlmostKiss that ends with both girls looking distinctly breathless and ''surrounded by [[FlowerMotifs roses]] and LoveBubbles''. As one comment on Youtube put it.
--> "You know, if Banpresto keeps topping themselves like this, by 4th OG, they won't have anywhere to go but just straight-up lesbian sex".
** None of this is assisted by the fact the most obvious licensed-property relationship parallel for Latooni and Shine is Kamille and Four (see CompositeCharacter above).
* ShoutOut: Aside from the ''Wink'' reference, there's a chance for Shine referring to the Fairlion's "Sonic Driver" as "[[Manga/GetterRobo Shine Spark]]". To further the joke, Shine paraphrases the ''actual'' Shine Spark dialogue spoken by [[Manga/GetterRobo Ryoma Nagare]].
* TookALevelInBadass: In her debut, she had no fighting experience, thus becoming a DistressedDamsel (quite possibly DamselScrappy, depending on the viewer). Cue ''Original Generation 2'' - she gets a custom machine that takes advantage of her clairvoyance via the W-INK System and starts taking to the front lines. Part of this, though, stems from the fact the W-INK System allows the pilot of one unit (Latooni) to remotely control the other.
** By the later parts of the story, Shine's quite capable of piloting by herself. In ''The Inspectors'', she fights against Ouka in the Rapiecage with the GEIM System activated and survives long enough to reach its operational limit. In the ''Second Original Generation'', she's thrown into La Gias without Latooni and fights there just fine.

!!Kouta Azuma (Voiced by TakumaTerashima)
[[quoteright:220:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/roar.jpg]]
[[caption-width-right:300:[[labelnote:Click here]]http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/229693dz_7861.png[[/labelnote]] to see Kouta without armor]]

-->''"[[CallingYourAttacks OVER KAISER SWOOOOORD!]]"''

A newcomer for ''Original Generation Gaiden'', Kouta Azuma is just a HotBlooded OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent from the city district of Asakusa, who receives frequent telepathic messages from a being calling itself "Roar". When his younger sister Shouko's attacked by the invading [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsCompact3 Shura]], Kouta becomes desperate to protect her, until Roar gives him instructions to transform into his armor, becoming "Fighter Roar". While this doesn't seem to be enough to repel the Shura, his grandfather Kisaburou Azuma unveils the machine he's been hiding and repairing for years: Roar's Compatible Kaiser. Kouta goes to pilot it and fends off the attackers. Just when he believes he won't be using that power anymore, he manages to escape the ODE Incident, only to see Shouko get nabbed away by Folka Albark, forcing him to go on the run after his newfound rival, get in the Compatible Kaiser and save his sister. He manages to join the ''Kurogane'' crew along the way and learn more about their operations, even making peace with Folka, who recently [[DefectorFromDecadence defected from the Shura]].

Unfortunately, Kouta doesn't expect Shouko to wind up becoming a victim of [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsReversal Duminuss]] and its brainwashing, wearing the "Emi Armor" and piloting the G-Thundergate, the companion craft to the Compatible Kaiser. Out for Roar's blood, it takes large amounts of IKnowYouAreInThereSomewhereFight to break control over Shouko, thereby rendering her as the {{Henshin Hero}}ine "Fighter Emi" and face Roar's nemesis [[Characters/CompatiHeroSeries Dark Brain]].

Kouta winds up reappearing in {{Continuity}} via the ''[[EndlessFrontier Endless Frontier EXCEED]]'' SpinOff sequel. In the drama CD that occurs prior to the game, he's transported to the Endless Frontier, with Kouta meeting [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAdvance Axel Almer]] later, surprised at [[AmnesiacDissonance his shift in personality]] and the appearance of [[Characters/EndlessFrontier Aschen Blodel]], mistaking her as Lamia. Regardless, they manage to return to their world once the misadventure ends, but for the sake of not confusing everyone, Kouta decides to keep the majority of this detour to himself (and Axel).

But getting back to the real world doesn't equate rest for Kouta, as the Earth is now under siege by the [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsDestiny Ruina]], with the Gaia Sabers making things complicated. Kouta rejoins the Steel Dragon Battle Group and heads back to Asakusa City to retrieve the Compatible Kaiser, only to find delinquent Michiru Hanaten waiting to challenge him in front of his home. He had no time to worry, as extraterrestrials begin laying siege on Asakusa City. With Michiru's assistance, Kouta recovers the Compatible Kaiser and eventually goes on full force in helping the Steel Dragon Battle Group until the end of the Sealing War.

Tropes associated with Kouta:
[[hardline]]
* AlphaStrike: Compatible Kaiser's "Kaiser Tornado"
* {{BFS}}: G Compatible Kaiser's "Overkaiser Sword"
* CallingYourAttacks: "[[LargeHam OVERKAISEEEEEEER~!! '''''SWOOOOOOOOOOORD~!!''''']]"
* ChestBlaster: (G) Compatible Kaiser's "Kaiser Burst". Doubles as a ContinuityNod[=/=]MythologyGag, as the letters "BF" (Battle Force) are seen in the attack, which confirms this is the same Kaiser from ''The Great Battle IV''.
* CombiningMecha, MechaExpansionPack: With the G Thundergate, the Compatible Kaiser becomes the G Compatible Kaiser.
* CoolBoard: "Battle Racer", Warrior Roar's flying surfboard from ''The Great Battle III'' is part of Kouta's arsenal in the ''Second Original Generation''.
* HenshinHero: Transform into Fighter Roar to fight.
* {{Hot Blood}}ed: And HOW!
* InSeriesNickname: At one point in ''Original Generation Gaiden'', [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAlpha Ricarla Borgnine]] calls it the "Pachinko Kaiser".
* KillItWithFire: "Fire Dragon"; ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin
* LegacyCharacter: Inherited the powers and title of the former Fighter Roar, who currently exists as Warrior Roar.
* {{Leitmotif}}: "Burn Now!" as Fighter Roar; when he pilots the Compatible Kaiser, "Howl, Compatikaiser!"
* PowerEchoes: Variation; his voice has a noticeable reverb effect whenever he starts yelling.
* PrecisionGuidedBoomerang: Compatible Kaiser's "Kaiser Boomerang"
* {{Reconstruction}}: Everything about Kouta and the Compatible Kaiser's done in the incredibly stereotypical, old-school SuperRobot anime style, which contrasts heavily with the RealRobot dynamics ''concerning'' {{Super Robot}}s in the ''Original Generation'' universe and mythos.
* RocketPunch: Compatible Kaiser's "Spiral Knuckle"; the G Compatible Kaiser's version clasps both hands as the "Double Spiral Knuckle". Interestingly, the latter resembles the same-named attack the Anime/{{Dangaioh}} has.
* ShoulderCannon: Again, ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin, once the G Thundergate combines with the Kaiser.
* ShoutOut: Doubles as {{Expy}} - in ''Original Generations'', the Compatible Kaiser is practically the Anime/{{Gravion}} in appearance and attacks; by ''Original Generation Gaiden'', the G Compatible Kaiser's essentially the Sol Gravion. This is because Creator/MasamiObari created, designed and directed ''Anime/{{Gravion}}'', and was tasked by Banpresto to give the Kaiser a new look for the series.
* TransformationNameAnnouncement: It's even part his name!
* YouDoNOTWantToKnow: Inverted; Kisaburou was more than willingly to tell his grandson why he hid the news about Roar and the Kaiser, but Kouta isn't interested in hearing it. In fact, he {{Lampshades}} how he doesn't want to get mixed up in "more annoying crap". Obviously, Kouta didn't know he had no choice later.

!!Shouko Azuma (Voiced by Creator/HiromiKonno)

Kouta's younger sister
[[hardline]]
* DayInTheLimelight: Shouko fights independently without relying on Kouta by deploying in the G-Thundergate as a seperate unit for the ''Second Original Generation'' in contrast to her appearance in ''Original Generation Gaiden''. See DummiedOut.
* DudeMagnet: Has attracted the attention of Folka and Michiru.
* DummiedOut: Was supposed to be a playable character since ''Original Generation Gaiden'', but time constaints forced her and the G-Thundergate to automatically combine with the Compatible Kaiser, rendering her as a sub-pilot. The fact the game's "Free Battle Mode" details her own battle quotes, with the G-Thundergate's animated attacks, proves this. Rectified by the ''Second Original Generation''.
* GoodCostumeSwitch: Her armor and the G-Thundergate turn red once she regains control of herself. Her armor also loses the mouthplate.
* {{Henshin Hero}}ine: Can transform into Fighter Emi
* HiddenBuxom: Revealed in "[[BeachEpisode The Beach Dwellers]]", Shouko's default school uniform hides her buxomed body.
* LegacyCharacter: Inherited the powers and title of the previous Emi; incidentally, Shouko and Emi are younger sisters to Kouta and Roar, respectively.
* MacrossMissileMassacre: G-Thundergate's "G-Missile"
* MeaningfulName: Named after Japanese idol singer Shouko Nakagawa, a big fan of [=SRW=]. In fact, Nakagawa also voiced Neko in ''Manga/HakabaKitaro'', the same character [[Manga/GeGeGeNoKitaro Neko Musume]] is based on, whom Hiromi Konno voiced too.
* MythologyGag: The G-Thundergate is named after the [[Characters/CompatiHeroSeries Great Kaminarimon]] of ''SD Battle Ozumo''.
* OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent: Aside from the ability to transform by summoning the "Emi Armor" from {{Hammerspace}}...
* RammingAlwaysWorks: G-Thundergate's "Gate Breaker"

!!Warrior Roar (Voiced by Creator/WataruTakagi)
The spirit that resides inside the Roar Armor that Kouta wears, he is the [[Characters/CompatiHeroSeries same-named character from]] ''The Great Battle'' series. After some unspecified time in ''The Great Battle'' series, Roar leaves the Battle Force universe with the Compatible Kaiser to pursue his nemesis Dark Brain. Unfortunately, the resulting dimensional jump severely damaged his machine, as well as tearing Roar's body apart. The Kaiser arrived on Earth where it was found by Kouta's grandfather Professor Kisaburo Azuma, who took the Kaiser and repaired it using the same technology behind the Dynamic General Guardians. How Roar manifested himself inside Kouta is unknown, but when the Shura began attacking Earth, Roar allows Kouta to use his armor to transform into his previous body and acquire his powers.
[[hardline]]
* DemotedToExtra: Warrior Roar is unavailable as a "sub-pilot" for Kouta in the ''Second Original Generation'', in contrast to his previous appearance in ''Original Generation Gaiden''.
* TheObiWan: A rare example where the Obi-Wan is NotQuiteDead - Roar's body was just destroyed, but his spirit resides in the Roar Armor.
* SpiritAdvisor: Though there are times in combat where Roar comments on how poorly Kouta performs in the armor.

!!Michiru Hanaten (Voiced by Yoshinori Sonobe)
A student of "[[NamcoBandai [=BanNam=]]] Academy", Michiru was loosely mentioned in the ''Endless Frontier EXCEED'' drama CD, but made his on-screen debut in the ''Second Original Generation''. When Kouta was in the Endless Frontier, Michiru went to Asakusa City to challenge Kouta, on his quest to conquer all high schools in Japan. Despite Kouta not being around, Michiru prepares to wait for him, to the extent of standing outside his home until he returns. Shouko wouldn't stand for this and allows him to stay in the Azuma residence while he waits. This was long enough for Michiru to develop a crush on her.

When extraterrestrial invaders attack Asakusa City, mass-produced [=JinRai=] arrive on the spot to destroy them. Unfortunately, they begin tearing apart the city because the Compatible Kaiser is hidden beneath the city's amusement park (the [=JinRai=] are programmed to destroy all Dynamic General Guardian units: the Kaiser was repaired with the same tech). Wanting to help, Professor Kisaburo leads Michiru into the underground bunker where the Kaiser is being kept and send it to street level so Kouta can use the machine to fend off the [=JinRai=].
[[hardline]]
* AscendedExtra: [[spoiler:The G Bankaran was created for ''Original Generation Gaiden'' in a promotion for the game and the ''Shuffle Battler Mode'' mini-game (though the name wasn't fixed yet; it was instead called the "Eternal Banchou") before getting an actual appearance in the series proper in the ''Second Original Generation'']].
* BadassNormal: Just your [[OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent average Japanese high school]] loudmouth delinquent, [[spoiler:who so happened to have provided the motion data for the new G Bankaran, Kisaburo enables Michiru to use the machine and assist Kouta. Most of what Michiru does in it is being straight-up physically punishing]].
* BilingualBonus: The kanji that appear [[spoiler:during the G Bankaran's "Type 8710 Dragon-Tiger Combo"]] is a very colloquial phrase most people, even some Japanese, might not understand. When literally translated, it says "I don't need your opinion!", but culturally speaking, it's the Japanese equivalent to the phrase "Fuck the police". How fitting, considering Michiru's character.
* CaptainErsatz: Undoubtedly of [[Anime/MazingerZ Boss]], but unlike him, Michiru is more competent in his behavior and attitude. [[spoiler:In regards to the G Bankaran, like the Boss Borot, it's a resupply unit, but unlike Boss' machine, which teeters between JokeCharacter and LethalJokeCharacter in its appearances, Michiru's mecha is neither and a straight-up MightyGlacier]].
%%* DelinquentHair
* EyeBeams: [[spoiler:G Bankaran's "G Beam"]]

!!Yong Gebana (Voiced by Creator/SaoriHayami)
[[quoteright:100:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/yong_gebana_5231.png]]
Making her debut in ''Dark Prison'', Yong Gebana is a pilot from the Earth Federation's "Test and Evaluation Command #3" humanoid mobile weapon development team. During a test run for the "Pfeil III", a modified version of the mass-produced Huckebein MK II, Yong gets pulled into La Gias via the mass summoning event and aligns with [[Characters/MasouKishin Shu Shirakawa]] and his party in order to find a way back to the surface world.

She returns in ''The Moon Dwellers'', where she joins the Steel Dragons.
[[hardline]]
* AbnormalAmmo: Pfeil III's "Sword Launcher", which launches the daggers on the "Gunstar Blader"
* AceCustom: The Pfeil III is created by taking into account suggestions made by various teams using mass-produced Huckebeins in combat with desired features in mind.
* DitzyGenius: Yong has a serious personality when it counts and operates "by the book" most of the time. She has a slight obsession with data, represented by how she acquires and utilizes it constantly during combat (her debut scenario is called "Auditor Girl", referencing this).
* {{Foreshadowing}}: [[spoiler:Yong mentions plans for the Pfeil III were stolen by the Inspectors off-screen during ''Original Generation 2'', the first indicator she isn't an Earthling. Also take notice of the Gunstar Blader - its design is based on the same weapon used by the "Graterkin", the [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsClassic Zuvorg Alliance]] machine belonging to [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsClassic Mekibos Bulverde]]]].
* GivenNameReveal: [[spoiler:"Gayatoba Sucheka"]]
* GratuitousGerman: "Pfeil" means "arrow" in German, while III is pronounced as "drei", German for "three".
* InSeriesNickname: Following her GivenNameReveal in ''Dark Prison'', she claims her allies can start addressing her that, but they continue to call her "Yong". [[spoiler:Meanwhile, Mekibos calls her "Gera", a shorter version of her Zuvorg name]].
* MidSeasonUpgrade: [[spoiler:A [[VideoGame/SuperRobotWars4 Liege Geios]], provided [[GuideDangIt players know where to find it]], and only usable in the last two scenarios of ''Dark Prison'']].
* {{Leitmotif}}: "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PkKnMpKxsGc Auditor Girl]]"
* MerlinAndNimue: Yong has a "master" whose advice or instructions she usually references when in self-thought or whose existence she uses as an encouragement; more often than not, Yong usually praises his keen farsight.
* PunnyName: Played with; in a save-quit intermission scene, Yong assures her name isn't derived from the word ''yon'' meaning "four" in Japanese, even though she was introduced in scenario 4 of ''Dark Prison''.
* TheReveal: [[spoiler:Yong's master is Mekibos, who sent her from the Zuvorg Alliance to spy on [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsClassic Teniquette Zezenan and the Guests]] for him just as their invasion began]].
* ShipTease [[spoiler:When Mekibos is asked if [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsClassic Justine Chafrois]] is an old girlfriend of his, Yong screams loudly "Nothing of the sort!"]].
* TheStoic: Played with; [[spoiler:because the Zuvorg is primarily an aristocratic hierachy, Yong's family isn't placed high in their society, it explains why she addresses Mekibos so formally. When he insists they can talk to each other casually, she hesistates to do so]].

!!Ing Egret (Voiced by Creator/HiroshiOkamoto)
-->''"Fall into.....THE SUPER GRAVITY WELL!!"''
The last of the [[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsAlpha Machinery Children]], Ing made his debut in an ''Alpha 2'' side-story manga called "Lost Children" (but since this is his game debut, his entry will go here). Following the defeat of the [[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsAlpha Nashim Gan Eden]], Ing awoke and found himself within a badly damaged Huckebein MK II. Having no idea who he was or where he had come from, Ing soon found himself under attack from the Alpha Numbers, specifically those who had went to the BadFuture via ''Alpha Gaiden''. When they saw his face, they realized he was one of the Machinery Children and kept labelling him as "Egret". Ing managed to hold back the Alpha Numbers and caused a huge explosion, allowing him to make a quick escape.

Upon waking up from the explosion, Ing found himself under the care of the Alpha Numbers. Giving him a place to recuperate, Ing tells them his situation and how they kept referring to him as Egret. Suddenly, the place is attacked by mysterious Bergelmirs, mass-produced Huckebein MK II units mutated by Machine Cells, under orders to find and capture Ing. The Alpha Numbers retailate and Ing manages to hijack a Bergelmir of his own. Damaging one of the enemy pilot's mask reveals to Ing the attackers and him share the same face. After the enemies retreat, the Alpha Numbers tell him the location of the Earth Cradle and Ing sets out to find the truth about his existence.

Ing appears in the ''Second Original Generation'' escaping from the Gaia Sabers' headquarters on Aidoneus Island, but is caught up by Duvan Org in the Alles Geist and shot down in his escaping unit. Floating near-lifelessly in an escape pod in the Pacific Ocean, Ing is found by members of the "[[Characters/SuperRobotWarsReversal L&E Corporation]]" and brought aboard the ''Hagane'' for recovery. Unfortunately, [[AmnesiacDissonance Ing reawakens with no memories of who he is]], but willingly accepts to help the crew and their situation during their sojourn into La Gias by using the "R-Blade Custom". After returning to the surface world and sensing his extraordinary piloting capabilities, Ing is given a custom [=EXbein=] called the "Ashe" (the [=EXbein=] having [[CanonImmigrant first appeared in]] ''The Inspectors''), after Gaia Sabers member Amara Barton destroys all of Mao Industries' Huckebeins. By the end of the game, Ing is drafted into the reformed "PTX Team", headed by [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsClassic Irmgult Kazahara]].

Ing's tropes include:
[[hardline]]
* AttackDrone: [[spoiler:EX-[=EXbein=]'s "Sliders"]]
* BadassCape: Ing himself and the Ashe
* {{BFG}}: [[spoiler:EX-[=EXbein=]'s "Black Hole Buster Cannon"]]
* {{BFS}}: Ashe's/[[spoiler:EX-[=EXbein=]'s]] "T-Link Saber"
* BookEnds: Ing is the first playable character starting in the prologue of the ''Second Original Generation''. By heading to the TrueFinalBoss, he'll be the last unit deployed in the battlefield, [[spoiler:due to being absorbed by [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAlpha Euzeth Gozzo]] and the Adamatron]].
* CallBack: Doubles as a ''very'' subtle piece of {{Foreshadowing}} (see below) - when he joins the Steel Dragon Battle Group, he sorties in an R-Blade Custom. In ''[[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsAlpha Super Robot Wars Alpha 3]]'', the R-Blade Custom is the only machine [[spoiler:[[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAlpha Cobray Gordon]] could be swapped into other than the Werkbau and Dis Astranagant]].
* CloningBlues: As part of the Machinery Children, Ing is a clone of Arado, whom all are based off of in ''Original Generation''.
** TheReveal: [[spoiler:Ing is a "hybrid" clone of the "Balshem" series of clones and the Machinery Children, created so Euzeth can gain access to the Nashim Gan Eden by having Ing as its "artificial pilot" in place of Irui Gan Eden]].
* CutShort: ''Lost Children'' ended following a one-volume run without any resolutions; the ''Second Original Generation'' expands what was previously untold about Ing.
* {{Foreshadowing}}: Because of TheOtherDarrin, the fact Ing isn't voiced by Creator/AkiraIshida, who portrays all the Machinery Children, is a clue about his identity. Like Cobray, Ing's first {{Leitmotif}} is a composite remix of "Gate of Magus", the {{Leitmotif}} of the Machinery Children, [[spoiler:and "Time Diver", which belongs to Ingram]].
** OlderThanYouThink: Ing was foreshadowed since ''Original Generation 2'' when [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAlphaGaiden Egret Feff]] mentions a comment [[http://i41.tinypic.com/2ptb62f.png about the Ing series]].
* {{Leitmotif}}: "22nd Child" and "[[TitleDrop Lost Children]]"
* MeaningfulName: His name is derived from "Inguz"; in keeping the ThemeNaming of the Machinery Children, Inguz is a Nordic rune which resembles two Xs together. [[spoiler:Makes sense when his MidSeasonUpgrade is called the "EX-[=EXbein=]" ([[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment no, really]])]].
* MultiColoredHair: Lavender with a strip of periwinkle.
* PsychicPowers: Unlike the other Machinery Children, Ing is a Psychodriver. To accomodate this, the Ashe is installed with the "T-Link System".
* SuperPrototype: The [=EXbein=] is the prototype of the Huckebein MK III, though it's not entirely known whether the Ashe is stronger; canonically, the [=EXbein=] is weaker than the MK III.
** AceCustom: The Ashe is modified from the [=EXbein=] significantly, though it's probably because it was put together with a bunch of spare parts [[spoiler:after it was damaged by Amara and the Galilnagant]].
** Additionally, [[spoiler:the EX-[=EXbein=]]] can potentially be a testbed for the technology that will later be incorporated into the [[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsAlpha SRX Altered Banpreios]].
* SweetTooth: One of Ing's traits is he enjoys sweets a lot; he particularly didn't mind the "strawberry jam-flavored rice balls" made by [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsDestiny Cliana Rimskaya]].
* UnrealisticBlackHole: [[spoiler:As per the standard for the Huckebein, the Black Hole Buster Cannon starts with Ing trapping his target in a psychic field before blasting them with a black hole from the {{BFG}} generating smaller black holes; [[StuffBlowingUp they all wind up exploding]]]].
* UnwittingPawn: [[spoiler:''Everything'' he does is a part of Arteil Steinbeck's plan to retrieve his "Void Memories" as Euzeth]].

!!Ariel Org (Voiced by Creator/YumikoKobayashi)
[[quoteright:220:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/arielorg_9680.png]]
-->''If I'm with the Flickerei, I can do it.''

Female protagonist of ''Real Robot Regiment'', Ariel Org is "Subject Zero", the first of the ArtificialHuman-based "Idealants Project". In her game of origin, she is tasked by her dying creator Dr. Enzo Ozunu to pilot the Flickerei Geist and stop her "brother" Duvan Org, the second Idealant created by the project, after he destroys Ozunu's lab. Ariel allies with the "[[Anime/MobileSuitGundamWing Preventers]]" to pursue Duvan, but also learns to express herself, as she believes she lacks the emotional capabilities of a human. When Ariel defeats Duvan and his transformed Alles Geist, the machines disappear in a brilliant flash of light. While everyone comments Ariel is likely dead, she manages to escape to the Guyana Highlands and lives the rest of her remaining life in memory of her brother.

In the ''Second Original Generation'', Ariel begins as a member of the Gaia Sabers along with Duvan, but after being told by Professor Eric Wong regarding the Idealants Project, alongside questioning the Gaia Sabers' motives, she flees with the Flickerei Geist with some help from Professor Wong. Seeing another display of the Gaia Sabers' methodologdy, she immediately defects to the Steel Dragon Battle Group. At the end of the game, Ariel is invited to join the ATX Team.

Ariel pilots the Flickerei Geist, a machine made from parts of the Gespenst MK III and various other Personal Troopers. In the ''Second Original Generation'', the Flickerei is made from parts of scrapped machines, including the Rapiecage and some elements of the Alt Eisen, particularly its right arm torn off by Axel during "Operation Plantagenet" in ''Original Generation 2''.
[[hardline]]
* AlphaStrike: Flickerei Geist's "Code: U.U.N." (Ultimate Uncanny Nail)
* ArtificialHuman: Not a [[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsAdvance W-Series]] android, but is one of two subjects coming out of the Idealants Project.
* BecomeARealBoy: Was TheStoic, but grows out of it.
* CombinationAttack: "E.D.N." with [[spoiler:Kyosuke and the Alt Eisen Riese]].
* {{Expy}}: In the ''Second Original Generation'', the Flickerei Geist is based off of data from the Alt Eisen. From a physical standpoint, the machine's pretty much what would happen if the Alt and [[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsCompact2 Weiss Ritter]] had a baby. However, it turns out the Flickerei is mainly based on the Alt and the Rapiecage (amusingly, another machine whose name means "patchwork"), even having it's trademark Code U.U.N. attack.
* FrickinLaserBeams: Flickerei Geist's "Force Ray"
* GlassCannon: Like the Alt Eisen, the Flickerei Geist has the same amount of firepower, but doesn't have the Alt's armor stats to back itself up.
* HeelFaceTurn: Started out as a member of the Gaia Sabers chasing after Ing. The next time she appears on the battlefield, she jumps ship from them.
* {{Leitmotif}}: "Flickerei Geist"
* MeaningfulName: "Flickerei" means "patching/patchery" and "geist" is "ghost" in German. The Flickerei Geist is built using different parts from other Personal Troopers, namely those derived from the Gespenst line ("gespenst" meaning "spectre" in German).
** [[spoiler:"Faul Kern" is loosely translated as "rotten core" in German. Keeping in mind the Jetzt are human-engineered Einst, the Faul Kern in the Flickerei is flawed and cannot evolve]].
* PileBunker: Flickerei Geist's "Revolver Stake"
* RedOniBlueOni: The blue to Duvan's red
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: Realistically, her name should be "Arriere" ("rear" in French) to keep the loose ThemeNaming between her and her brother "Devant" ("front" in French), though neither are real names.
** Overlaps with MeaningfulName[=/=]ThemeNaming, as the original form of their surname Org should "Ogre". By translating their complete names in Japanese, they become "Devant Ogre" (or ''Zenki'', as in "front demon") and "Arriere Ogre" (or ''Gouki'', as in "rear demon"). Their mecha also reflect this: the Alles is the larger of the two (representing ''Zenki'') while Flickerei is much smaller (representing ''Gouki''). Finally their "father" Dr. Ozunu is a reference to the [[http://eos.kokugakuin.ac.jp/modules/xwords/entry.php?entryID=425 "En-no-Ozunu" Shinto folk tale]], thus completing the circle.
* WreckedWeapon: In the ''Second Original Generation'', the Flickerei Geist is built out of salvaged or damaged parts from other mecha. Its Revolver Stake arm is the same one Axel tore off the Alt Eisen in ''Original Generation 2'', while its "Autocannon" left arm belonged to the Rapiecage, salvaged from the Earth Cradle. The main chassis is what's left from the incident in the past that deemed the Flickerei [[FlawedPrototype a failed unit]].
* YourDaysAreNumbered: [[spoiler:Ariel's short lifespan is due to being a product of the Idealants Project. Lamia is sent to solve this problem at the end of the ''Second Original Generation'']].

[[folder: Ship Captains]]

!!Daitetsu Minase (Voiced by Creator/HidekatsuShibata)
[[quoteright:150:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/1_00103.png]]
The CoolOldGuy among the originals, Daitetsu Minase is the captain of the space-exploration ship ''Hiryu'' years before the events of the first game. After a deadly encounter with the Aerogaters near Pluto, the ''Hiryu'' is forced to retreat after being overpowered. This incident hovers over Daitetsu, as he swears he won't allow such a near-death incident to happen again. By then, he's moved to a rank of commandant of a military academy, where he trains his future XO and protege Tetsuya Onodera, Lee Linjun and Lefina Einfeld. Just as he becomes captain of the newly christened ''Space-Noah'' class battleship ''Shirogane'' (with Tetsuya as his deputy), Shu Shirakawa damages it with the Granzon before its maiden voyage. Despite two ship disasters on his record, Daitetsu's given command of the second ''Space-Noah'' battleship ''Hagane'' during the Divine Crusaders War. Fortunately, he has more success, as the ''Hagane'' single-handedly attacks its headquarters and achieves victory. Depending on which route players take in the game, the ''Hagane'' is either scuttled in order to infiltrate the White Star or assists the rebuilt ''Hiryu Custom'' in the assault.

By the time ''Original Generation 2'' rolls in, Daitetsu's still captain of the rebuilt ''Hagane'', despite talks with his superiors he should retire from active duty and return to the academy to train new recruits. He leads the ship through another war with the Neo Divine Crusaders, including the invading [[HumanAliens Inspectors]]. During an assault at the Inspectors-occupied North American Langley Base, [[{{Jerkass}} Lee]] [[FaceHeelTurn springs a surprise preemptive]] on the ''Hagane'' in order to sink it. The attack wounds Daitetsu, but he quickly orders both the ''Hagane'' and ''Hiryu Custom'' to make their escape.

Daitetsu has a fondness for sake, and keeps a bottle in his office for special occasions.

Tropes associated with him are:
[[hardline]]
* BadassGrandpa: Justified because he's got a granddaughter and a battle-hardened veteran.
* BlessedWithSuck: Surprise attacks seem to have it in for Daitetsu. He lost two ships because of it, and just when it looks like he'll get past this trope, Lee comes out of nowhere and nearly sinks the ''Hagane''.
* TheCaptain: All ''Space Noah''-class battleships are under his command, even if it was for a short period.
* CaptainErsatz: The [=SRW=] equivalent of [[Anime/UchuuSenkanYamato Juzo Okita]], right down to the amphibious [[TheBattlestar battlestar]] armed with a bow-mounted WaveMotionGun.
* CoolOldGuy: Gains a lot of admiration and respect from the younger cast members. In fact, [[spoiler:a funeral is held following the [[PlayerPunch tragic]] [[WhamEpisode scenario]]. To that end, some of the characters' portrait has them crying; even Elzam arrives ''in person'' rather than as his Ratsel persona, as visiting his funeral using a disguise, in his own words, is disgracing Daitetsu's memories]].
* GoodSmokingEvilSmoking: Averted; players consistently see Daitetsu with a corn-cob pipe in his mouth, but rarely see him lighting it or taking a puff.
* HeroicWillpower: [[spoiler:The injuries he receives at Langley are fatal, but Daitetsu holds out long enough to ensure a hasty, safe retreat for both ships before quietly succumbing to his wounds]].
%%* ReasonableAuthorityFigure
%%* SeadogBeard
* TeamDad: For the entire cast

!!Tetsuya Onodera (Voiced by Jin Horikawa)
[[quoteright:150:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/204632308069498503.jpg]]
Adjutant to Daitetsu, Tetsuya graduated from the military academy Daitetsu taught at. Placed second overall in his class, right behind Lee, but for reasons unexplained, he's chosen over the more-qualified Lee (on paper, at least) as Daitetsu's second-in-command. He survives the Antarctic attack on the ''Shirogane'' and moves on to become XO of the ''Hagane'' during the first Divine Crusaders War. For the most part, Tetsuya acts like an overreactive, nervous rookie, serving as a form of comic relief for the originals. However, depending on the route played in ''Original Generation'', Tetsuya reveals himself as quite the brilliant tactician, seen with his strategy of using the recoil of the "[[WaveMotionGun Tronium Buster Cannon]]" on the bow of the ''Hagane'' as a means of escaping from what would've been a suicide attack on the Aerogaters' White Star.

During the second Divine Crusaders War, Tetsuya's still executive officer of the newly-repaired ''Hagane'', despite suggestions from several people that with his talents, he should be given command of his own ship. For the most part in ''Original Generation 2'', Tetsuya still acts like his semi-goofy self, until Lee's [[FaceHeelTurn defection to the Shadow-Mirror]] and his surprise attack on the ''Hagane''. This event considerably forces Tetsuya to [[TookALevelInBadass man up]] and assume command of the ''Kurogane'' for the rest of the Inspector conflict, albeit under the title of "Deputy Captain". By the time ''Original Generation Gaiden'' rolls in, he's the full-fledged captain of the repaired ''Hagane''.

He embodies these tropes:
[[hardline]]
* BadassNormal: From ''Original Generation 2'' onwards, he attains the badass part.
* BunnyEarsLawyer: Starts out the comic relief and nearly seems useless; hell, this is even reflected in his Spirit Command list. Then, when players least expect it, Tetsuya shows just why he graduated so high in his class.
* CantHoldHisLiquor: Unlike Daitetsu, Tetsuya can't really hold his liquor well and gets drunk easily. It's gotten to a point where he's mocked for having such low tolerance.
* DemotedToExtra: He's back to being the executive officer of the ''Hagane'' for ''The Moon Dwellers'' to make way for new ship captain Gint. While it was an accident, he did [[spoiler:kill President Graien Grusman]] during the ''Second Original Generation''.
* DynamicEntry: That drill on the ''Kurogane'' isn't simply just for show
* NewMeat: First the rookie, now ascended to TheCaptain.
* OlderThanTheyLook: He was ''29'' in the first game.
* RammingAlwaysWorks: Subverts it in the first ''Original Generation''game , then plays it gloriously straight in the sequel.
* ShipTease: Meta-example - since they're both captains of capital ships, he and Lefina have often been teased as a couple.
* ThisIsADrill: "Titanic Drill" on the bow of the ''Kurogane''
* WaveMotionGun: "Tronium Buster Cannon" on the bow of the ''Hagane''

!!Lefina Enfield (Vocied by Creator/JunkoIwao)
[[quoteright:150:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/201817558304521504.jpg]]
Captain of the refitted ''Hiryu Custom'', Lefina gradutated at the top of her class and given command of the ship on what's labelled as a "trial basis". At 18 years-old, Lefina is shy, nervous and very unsure of her abilities. As a result, she tends to defer a lot of decisions to the more experienced leaders, like deputy captain Sean Webley (Daitetsu's former adjutant on the ''Hiryu'') and ATX Team leaders Sanger and Kyosuke. During the Divine Crusaders War, she leads the ''Hiryu Custom'' and the ATX Team against the entire United Colony Corps defensive force and slowly matures into a dependable leader. The ''Hiryu Custom'' succeeds in defeating the Corps and re-establishing Earth Federation control in space. She also participates in the L5 Campaign; however, Lefina's involvement varies slightly depending on which route players choose. After the war, the ''Hiryu Custom'' is assigned to the Icarus asteroid base in the asteroid belt beyond Mars.

In ''Original Generation 2'', the ''Hiryu Custom'' is recalled back to Earth initially to investigate the disappearances of random Earth Federation Army squads in the L2 sector. After an attack on Mao Industries by a mysterious alien robot, the ship's assigned to protect the White Star from an alien attack. Lefina orders a full retreat from the White Star after the fleet stationed there is wiped out by the Inspectors. She also assists in the evacuation efforts from Mao Industries and the Tesla-Liecht Institute from the Inspectors, and eventually rejoins the ''Hagane'' in fighting them off. After these events, the ''Hiryu Custom'' is assigned to the Moon's defensive forces. By ''Original Generation Gaiden'', the ''Hiryu Custom'' is once again called back to action against the rampaging Bartolls and the Shura invasion.

Lefina functions nearly as a DistaffCounterpart to Tetsuya: both are quite easily startled and teased, only she has more potential for {{Moe}}. She embodies these tropes:
[[hardline]]
* CaptainErsatz: Compare Lefina to [[Anime/MartianSuccessorNadesico Yurika Misumaru]] - both have roughly the same age and combat experience and they command their respective battleships which feature a gravity-based WaveMotionGun. Sans appearance, while Lefina is slightly shy (but will pull through without being a ShrinkingViolet), Yurika is more ditzy, yet outgoing.
* DitzyGenius [[TheCaptain Captain]]: She's 18 and ''already'' a battleship captain. To counter that, she's rather {{Dojikko}}-ish. At one point in ''Original Generation 2'', she doesn't realize she's speaking to Elzam under his PaperThinDisguise.
* {{Fanservice}}: Was been roped by [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsCompact2 Excellen Browning]] [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/lefina_playboybunny.jpg to dress up]] as a PlayboyBunny in ''[[AnimatedAdaptation Divine Wars]]''. Cue a collection of MaleGaze, {{Nosebleed}} and SpitTake.
* MeaningfulName: "Hiryu" means "soaring dragon". Not only is the meaning supposed to be a reference to it "soaring through space", but also because the battleship's bow is designed to ''look'' like a [[http://i.imgur.com/DDRLG.jpg dragon]].
* YoungAndInCharge: While she's not ''the'' youngest character in the cast, Lefina is the highest ranking member in the entire Steel Dragon Battle Group; all major decisions made by the Battle Group are deferred to her. Simultaneously, she's the youngest of the other commanders by a substantial number of years.

[[folder: Supporting Characters]]

!!Sean Webley (Voiced by Kan Tanaka)

Vice-Captain of the ''Hiryu Custom'', Sean is a close friend of Daitetsu and loves to spend time drinking with him. He was previously the second-in-command of the ''Hiryu'' with Daitetsu as its captain before their trip near Pluto and their first encounter with the Aerogators. One of his hobbies include openly guessing the three sizes of the female crew and pilots, even flirting with them.
[[hardline]]
* DirtyOldMan: In some bizarre way, he knows all of Lefina's three sizes.
* HandsomeLech: Sean may be tempered by age, but he represents what an OfficerAndAGentleman is - although he flirts, he does not grope or leer on the many attractive females, though he makes it clear he appreciates their presence. Note pre-ContinuityReboot, he's responsible for forcing Latooni to permanently wear her ElegantGothicLolita outfit.
* NumberTwo: Lefina's XO aboard the ''Hiryu Custom''
* OneLastSmoke: Variation; Sean had saved a bottle of Scotch to share with [[spoiler:Daitetsu if they succeeded with Operation Plantagenet]]. [[LibationForTheDead He tosses away the bottle into the sea as an offering to his fallen friend]].

!!Eita Nadaka (Voiced by Hirofumi Tanaka)

A bridge operator aboard the ''Hagane''.
[[hardline]]
* AscendedExtra: Went from a non-playable secondary character in the first game to a "sub-commander" of a battleship in the sequel.
* BridgeBunny: A rare male example
* {{Megane}}: Even becomes the brunt of a joke during a save-quit conversation
* NumberTwo: Ascends to this position in place of Tetsuya [[spoiler:after Daitetsu is killed in action, and Tetsuya becomes captain]].

!!Eun Hyojin (Voiced by Creator/ShihoKawaragi)

Bridge operator for the ''Hiryu Custom'', Eun is Lefina's best friend, and is the one who gave her the confidence she needed when she was unsure of her abilities.
[[hardline]]
* AscendedExtra: From a non-playable secondary character in the previous games to a "sub-pilot" of a battleship in the ''Second Original Generation''.

!!Azuki Sawa (Voiced by Creator/MaiAizawa)

Another bridge operator, specifically communications support, aboard the ''Hagane''.
[[hardline]]
* BreakoutCharacter: Of sorts; she has more lines than Eita (who has been in ''Original Generation'' since his debut in the first game) and even makes it into the second ending of ''The Inspector'' instead of him.
* CanonForeigner: Debuts in ''The Inspectors''; however, she appears in the ''Second Original Generation'', rendering her a...
** CanonImmigrant: {{Lampshaded}} in a save-quit conversation. Apparently, she was always aboard the ''Hagane''...[[FromACertainPointOfView just not on the main bridge, but on the secondary bridge]].
* KindheartedCatLover: Finds them adorable and has a cat-themed coffee mug. She was particularly happy to meet Masaki's familiars in the ''Second Original Generation''.
* SempaiKohai: {{Lampshaded}} in another save-quit conversation between her and Eita

!!Rishu Tougou (Voiced by Masaharu Satou)

An advisor for the Tesla-Leicht Institute and master of the ''Jigen-ryuu'' ("Jigen-style") swordsmanship, Master Rishu Tougou is the teacher to Sanger and Bullet. A good-natured man, when it comes to matters of the sword, Rishu is strict. At his time in Tesla-Leicht, he's provided the motion data for the "[[{{BFS}} Colossal Blade]]" and its development.
[[hardline]]
* AscendedExtra: Is partially available for use in ''2.5: Unified Wisdom'', but is fully playable beginning with ''Original Generation Gaiden''.
* CoolOldGuy: Remember, folks - this is the man who taught Sanger to be a {{Badass}}.
* {{Kiai}}: Just like his pupils, "CHESTO!"

* MythologyGag: His ancestor is Ryuuma Tougou, the pilot of the [=RyuKoOh=] centuries back in the ''[=RyuKoOh=] Denki'' manga.
* RocketPoweredWeapon: The back of the Type-0 Colossal Blade is covered in thrusters.
* ShutUpHannibal: Is prone to this just like Sanger.
* SimpleYetAwesome: The Type-0 lacks the {{Transforming|Mecha}}/CombiningMecha abilities of the later Grungust models, and its built-in weaponry don't consist of more than [[MacrossMissileMassacre missile launchers]], a RocketPunch and a ChestBlaster, yet Rishu {{Lampshades}} on the machine's simplicity.
--> '''Rishu''': "It can swing [[{{BFS}} the sword]]. [[TheAllSolvingHammer That's all it needs to do]]."
* SoLastSeason: Averted; the Type-0 was decommissioned prior to ''Original Generation 2'', but when it makes its return, it's still one of the strongest units in ''Original Generation Gaiden'' all the way towards the ''Second Original Generation''. Justified as the machine is upgraded with technology from its successors (namely "TGC Joints" and a plasma generator) during its absence off-screen.
* SuperPrototype: {{Downplayed|Trope}} and {{Justified|Trope}}; while the Type-0 is one of the strongest units in ''Original Generation Gaiden'' and the ''Second Original Generation'', it had to undergo extensive retrofits and upgrades with current generation technology. In spite of that, the Type-0 lacks most of the capabilities of its succeeding units (see SimpleYetAwesome above). Most of its combat ability comes from the [[{{BFS}} Colossal Blade]] and [[{{Badass}} Rishu's skill with it]].
* SwordCane: Carries one in case of emergencies, [[spoiler:such as when the Inspectors held the Tesla-Leicht Institute hostage]].

!Earth Federation (Others)

[[folder: Earth Federation Officials]]

!!Lee Linjun (Voiced by Ryo Wakabayashi in ''Orignal Generations'', Kousuke Okano in ''The Inspectors'' and the ''Second Original Generation'')
[[quoteright:150:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/199284283514164271.jpg]]
--> ''"...watch me, Tetsuya Onodera! This is my...This is the path Lee Linjun took!"''

A former classmate of Tetsuya's, Lee functions as the semi-EvilCounterpart of Tetsuya in every way imaginable. His mannerisms in combat involve "ByTheBookCop following the book]]", to a point where it becomes painstakingly ridiculous. Lee also holds no care for his subordinates, [[WeHaveReserves seeing them mere pawns that can be easily replaced]]. To that end, he holds a serious grudge against the participants of Operation SRW (which includes almost all of the Steel Dragon Battle Group; Tetsuya gets the brunt of his excuse). The reason? His wife Cynthia and his parents were killed during the Beijing attack by the Aerogators. His result: [[FreudianExcuse blame the heroes, NOT the invaders for his loss]].

Lee makes his debut in ''Original Generation 2'' as captain of the rebuilt ''Shirogane''. During the war with the Neo Divine Crusaders, Lee falls for a downright-obvious trap set by Shadow-Mirror forces, and the ''Shirogane'' is captured. Lee's approached by [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAdvance Vindel Mauser]] and offered a position among their ranks, which he readily accepts. As if he couldn't get any worse, Lee launches a surprise attack on the ''Hagane'' during the battle at the North American Langley Base, though the combined ''Hagane'' and ''Hiryu Custom'' crews escape. When the Inspectors and Shadow-Mirror fall back to the White Star, [[RivalTurnedEvil Lee faces Tetsuya]], now Deputy Captain of the ''Kurogane''. As a last-ditch effort, Lee attempts to ram the ''Kurogane'' with the ''Shirogane''...except he forgets the ''Kurogane'' mounts [[ThisIsADrill A GIANT DRILL]] [[WhatAnIdiot on its bow]]. The ''Shirogane'' is shredded to pieces.

However, ''Original Generations'' {{Retcon}}s the event with the ''Shirogane'' retreating. As much as it's hard to believe Lee can [[NoOneCouldSurviveThat survive a battleship-sized drill to the face]], he returns in the ''Second Original Generation'' working for the Gaia Sabers as captain of their flagship ''Air Christmas'', under the alias "Carly Neuman". His old persona is quickly discovered by the Steel Dragon Battle Group, however.
[[hardline]]
* EarlyBirdCameo: The side-story manga ''Record of ATX'' has Lee cameo as captain of an aircraft carrier during the Battle of Beijing. [[spoiler:He watches helplessly as the city's razed by the Aerogators]].
* {{Expy}}: Lee is practically a mirror of Tempest Hawker from the first game - both men are associates to a party member, motivated by [[spoiler:a dead family member]] and are {{Jerkass}}es. Tempest defected to the Divine Crusaders, though Lee doesn't, despite being antagonistic and a playable character, until he joins the Shadow-Mirror.
* FaceHeelTurn: Although in Lee's case, this may count as a subversion. While not presented as a traditional "[[{{Face}} good guy]]" at the start, by mid-game, he decides to embrace his true villainy.
** HeelFaceTurn: [[spoiler:In the ''Second Original Generation'', when Steinbeck reveals himself to be Euzeth Gozzo and [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness damages]] the ''Air Christmas'', Lee pulls this since he [[EvenEvilHasStandards still retains some standards]] by [[RammingAlwaysWorks ramming the battleship]] [[HeroicSacrifice into Euzeth's Adamatron]]]].
* {{Foil}}: Lee amounts to being pretty much this in order to give Tetsuya his CharacterDevelopment.
* {{Hypocrite}}: Lee complains about being late to a rendevous with the ''Hagane'' because the ''Shirogane'' is damaged in one scenario during ''Original Generation 2''. When the former does appear to offer aid, Lee criticizes Daitetsu for being careless. Somehow, his duties as a soldier apparently comes first.
* InformedAbility: There's a reason why the fanbase calls him "a graduate of the dumbass department".
* {{Jerkass}} [[TheNeidermeyer Neidermeyer]]: Lee takes these tropes and cranks it UpToEleven and beyond. One has to wonder if he is solely created just so to be hated to death by players. If the answer's "yes", then Banpresto ''overdid'' it.
* IrrationalHatred: The crux of his character - deep down, Lee's just a grief stricken man who's trying to find a way to come to terms with a very tragic loss in his life, but since he copes with his pain by being a complete and utter '''asshole''' to the {{Player Character}}s, it's hard to feel pity for him, ''especially'' since his sneak attack on the ''Hagane'' during the Langley Base assault [[spoiler:leads to Captain Daitetsu's death]], at which point, any sympathy for him is rendered non-existant.
* NoOneCouldSurviveThat: {{Retcon}}ned by ''Original Generations''; the ''Second Original Generation'' {{Lampshades}} it.
* OutOfFocus: Lee gets less screentime in ''The Inspectors''; in fact, when he is supposed to do a FaceHeelTurn, he ''doesn't'', as if he faded into obscurity...
* RammingAlwaysWorks: Averted; ramming doesn't work when your target has a massive drill at its bow, Mr. Linjun. This man graduated ''summa cum laude'', by the way. [[spoiler:Played straight when ironically, him doing this in the ''Second Original Generation'' is what gives the Steel Dragon Battle Group their victory. It helps the ''Air Christmas'' is ''designed'' [[http://youtu.be/EtttA0UgDvM?t=1m25s to ram into things]]]].
* TheRival: A one-sided case against Tetsuya
* SmugSnake: Banpresto probably want to give him a bit of a sympathy with his back-story, but he's too much of a bastard for any of the fans to care. He still keeps the {{Jerkass}}ery in the ''Second Original Generation'', to the point players find it hard to forgive him, [[spoiler:even after his last minute HeroicSacrifice and RedemptionEqualsDeath]].
* WellIntentionedExtremist: For all his faults (which is, to say, A LOT), Lee truly has genuine concern for protecting the Earth. It's too bad [[HorribleJudgeOfCharacter he tends to pick the wrong factions to serve nearly all the time]] (Neo DC, Shadow-Mirror, Gaia Sabers), mainly because of his {{Pride}} and misplaced dislike towards the heroes (see FreudianExcuse). [[spoiler:He asserts in his last moments the Steel Dragon Battle Group is the real force that could make the Earth invincible]].

[[hardline]]
* DumbIsGood: See below

* WellIntentionedExtremist: Graien believes the Earth requires a more militant government in hopes to combat extraterrestrials, hence why he sees the "Shield of Aegis" decreed by Midcrid as pointless, whereas the "Sword of Harpe" is necessary.

!!Lieutenant Haruma

An EFA soldier seen in the ''Divine Wars'' animé. He's an instrumental factor in Ryusei's CharacterDevelopment early on.

[[/folder]]

!Antagonists

Even enemies fulfill several tropes. Instead of individual enemies, it will list the groups the Steel Dragon Battle Group opposes.

[[folder: (Neo) Divine Crusaders]]

Based on the [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsClassic same-named faction]] from the "[[FanNickname Classic Timeline]]", the Divine Crusaders ("DC") are an anti-Federation government force led by Bian Zoldark. The genius scientist formed the DC by using the "Extra-Over Technology Institute" as a smoke-screen to hide themselves from TheFederation. Similar to their "Classic" counterparts, Bian declares war on the Federation, rallying his followers and any newcomers to topple the current regime in ''Original Generation'', but with a twist: Bian unveils a meeting in the Antarctic between government representatives and extraterrestrials were meant to ensure the Earth would surrender to alien forces. Naturally, this causes anti-alien sentiments throughout humanity, leading many to enlist in Bian's newly revealed DC, igniting the first "[[CivilWar Divine Crusaders War]]". Unlike the "Classic" Divine Crusaders, the DC of ''Original Generation'' are also assisted by the "United Colony Corps", the primary military force belonging to the space colonies, headed by Bian's close friend Maier von Branstein of the Elpis colony. Bian's insurrection ultimately ends with his death at DC headquarters on Aidoneus Island by the Steel Dragon Battle Group.

After Bian dies, however, the Divine Crusaders undergo changes, due to a combination of the death of many of the organization's higher-ups and severe MotiveDecay from its existing commanders. By the time the L5 Campaign is underway, the DC is scattered and largely leaderless; nevertheless, these small "[[TheRemnant Divine Crusaders Remnants]]" continue their anti-government dissent by waging small skirmishes against the Earth Federation Army. However, Colonel Van Vat Tran manages to unite a majority of the Remnants into the "Neo Divine Crusaders" in ''Original Generation 2'' (''Neue'' Divine Crusaders in the Japanese version) and, [[HereWeGoAgain once again]], the Neo DC attempt to topple the Federation government. While many like Colonel Van are doing it in the belief they are upholding Bian's legacy, others have pettier reasons behind this second Divine Crusaders War. Unfortunately, the Neo DC are rendered powerless again after the disastrous results of "Operation Plantagenet", a joint Earth Federation Army-Neo DC campaign to push the Inspectors away from the planet. By ''Original Generation Gaiden'', many of its members have either left the organization or defected to the Earth Federation Army; only a few pockets of Neo DC regiments remain, commanded by Lorenzo di Montenego.

Notable members of the (Neo) DC in ''Original Generation'' include [[ReasonableAuthorityFigure Colonel Van]], [[AscendedFanboy Tenzan Nakajima]], [[RoaringRampageOfRevenge Tempest Hawker]], [[MadScientist Dr. Adler Koch]], Archibald Grims ([[HeelFaceRevolvingDoor though he eventually strikes on his own]]), Dr. Agilla Setme, [[TheAce Ouka Nagisa]], and Wodan Ymir. A majority of their HumongousMecha used is the "Lion" series, the first "[[AMechByAnyOtherName Armored Module]]" ever developed; its subsequent manufacturing line is then expanded into the "Guarlion" and "Barrelion" series.

Tropes regarding the (Neo) Divine Crusaders:
[[hardline]]
* BlackBox: The technology found inside Meteor-3 not only prompts Bian to establish the Divine Crusaders, but incorporate it into many Earth-based mecha.
* BoringButPractical: InUniverse, the Lion series; the intent to create the Lion was to recycle and reuse the same configuration to that of fighter jets, the easiest to learn for new pilots compared to "Personal Troopers", alongside the Lion being cost-effective for mass-production. The latter point would be a boon to the DC during the first DC War as they are able to churn out as many Lion units as possible, overwhelming Federation military on all fronts.
* {{Fallen Hero}}es: Bian and Tempest; both lost faith in the Earth Federation for different reasons, though moreso on the latter's part, since [[spoiler:his wife and daughter were killed during the "Hope Incident", which the Federation government was responsible for]].
* {{Knight Templar}}s: They're villains with decent goals, at first anyway, who call themselves "[[MeaningfulName Divine Crusaders]]". The "shot down" lines from many of their troops lay this on with a trowel.
* {{Mad Scientist}}s: Adler and Agilla; possibly Bian too, but exactly how "mad" is he when he states the DC is NecessarilyEvil?
* {{Well Intentioned Extremist}}s: Bian, Maier, Van and Lorenzo

!Notable characters belonging to the (Neo) Divine Crusaders (those exclusive to ''Original Generation''):

!!Tenzan Nakajima (Voiced by Yasuhiko Kawazu)
[[quoteright:150:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/201817558304522787.jpg]]
[[IKnowMortalKombat Recruited by the Divine Crusaders for his game-playing skills and talents]] at "Burning PT", an InUniverse MechaGame simulating mecha combat, Tenzan Nakajima drops out of a tournament in ''Original Generation'' to join the faction, allowing Ryusei to win by default (in ''Divine Wars'', Tenzan faces Ryusei in the tournament final and defeats him, becoming champion). Becoming a test pilot for the Lion series, Tenzan is one of the few people in the DC to use all three primary Armored Modules fielded by the Divine Crusaders (Lion, Guarlion and Barrelion). He eventually settles on the Barrelion as his personal unit as he doesn't like how the other two units handle.

Over the course of the Divine Crusaders War, Tenzan becomes a steady rival to Ryusei; unlike the latter, Tenzan [[{{Jerkass}} constantly belittles Ryusei]] and believes the war is a big game and doesn't take into account of his actions. When the Divine Crusaders decide to debut the Valsion Custom, Tenzan is given Unit #3 by Adler. Unfortunately, the GEIM System installed in the machine is far from working capacity, rendering him berserk and distorting his perception of reality further; now he ''really'' believes he's in a real video game. He dies during the Divine Crusaders' final assault on Federation headquarters at Geneva, Switzerland, leaving a serious impression on Ryusei.

Tenzan embodies these tropes:
[[hardline]]
* AceCustom: Has his own personally modified Barrelion, while a briefly-used Guarlion is also [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/guarlion_tenzannakajima_custom.jpg a custom job]], as it lacks the head fin all Guarlions have.
* AxCrazy: When piloting the Valsion Custom [[spoiler:and as Gaza Haganer]]
* BigEater: In ''Divine Wars''; even during his tournament battle with Ryusei, he's eating while effortlessly dodging Ryusei's attacks before [[CurbStompBattle trouncing him]].
* BrainwashedAndCrazy: Variation while piloting the Valsion Custom - Tenzan isn't exactly {{Brainwashed}}; he's just plain crazy. [[spoiler:Played straight when he's resurrected as Gaza]].
* EvilCounterpart: Tenzan's essentially what Ryusei would've turned into had the latter not learned to separate fiction from reality, specifically the harsh consequences of war, and matured as a person.
** Tenzan's personality also mirrors Ryusei's original ''VideoGame/ShinSuperRobotWars'' personality, who was arrogant and a bit of a {{Jerkass}}.
* DieLaughing: [[spoiler:Both times for both deaths in the same game]]
* FatBastard: His portrait gives him the vibes that he's plump or fat.
* KickTheDog: [[spoiler:Reveals to Ryusei that Latooni was a member of The School and brings up how she was essentially Adler's play-experiment. This is enough for Ryusei's BerserkButton to be pressed and gives Tenzan a piece of his mind]].
* KilledOffForReal: [[spoiler:TWICE in one game]]
* TheRival: To Ryusei, which cements his CharacterDevelopment.

[[hardline]]
* CanonImmigrant: Lorenzo made his debut in ''Original Generation Chronicle'', a set of short-stories from Dengeki magazine released prior to ''Original Generations''.

* CanonImmigrant: Just like Lorenzo, Murata originated in a short-story from ''Original Generation Chronicle'', tasked with [[spoiler:protecting Lorenzo while he [[GrandTheftPrototype steals a Valsion Custom Type-CF]] from Isurugi Industries]].

[[quoteright:150:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/197595433653076642.jpg]]
-->''Oh, so you don't like needless bloodshed, Lt. Jaggar? Well that's too bad. [[EstablishingCharacterMoment I do love needless bloodshed. ESPECIALLY FROM THE INNOCENTS!!]]''

Archibald Grims is a Neo Divine Crusaders commander who debuts in ''Original Generation 2''. His top subordinates are [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAlpha Yuuki Jaggar]] and Ricarla Borgnine, although he briefly serves as commander to Arado and Seolla. Archibald seems like a mild-mannered person with a cunning personality. In reality, he's an AxCrazy PsychoForHire of the Elpis Incident. He set off a poison gas in the docking bay of the Elpis colony [[spoiler:that forced Elzam von Branstein to kill his wife Cattleya in order to save it]]. Archibald takes great pleasure in killing anything he sees, be it innocent or not. This causes some tension between him and those serving under him early on over military strategy, until Archibald defects and joins the Shadow-Mirror, fatally wounding Colonel Van during the surprise attack at the North American Langley Base. During the final showdown in the Earth Cradle, Archibald reveals he was in fact hired by the ''real'' mastermind behind the Elpis Incident from the Extra-Over Technological Investigative Council. This confession, in an attempt to save his own life, horrendously backfires and is killed in a tag-team assault by the Branstein brothers.

Archibald's an interesting character due to the number of {{Mythology Gag}}s surrounding his family name. According to the ''[=RyuKoOh=] Denki'' manga, supposedly set several centuries before ''Original Generation'', Archibald's ancestor Jabez Grims, a member of British royalty, excavates the [=JakuOhKi=] and [=BuOhKi=], two ancient ''Choukijin'' ("Super Mechanical Gods"). However, since Jabez doesn't possess the PsychicPowers allowing humans to control the Choukijin, he uses opium in large amounts to pacify the machines. With these two Choukijin in his possession, Jabez goes on a rampage; fortunately, his actions are stopped by Rishu Tougou's ancestor, Ryuuma. However, Jabez's actions have serious consequences: the Grims family is expelled from the British aristocracy and no longer hold any political power. As such, Archibald takes some measures to secure, and later, stop the revival of the [=RyuOhKi=] and [=KoOhKi=] in ''Original Generation 2'', but fails.

Tropes associated with Archibald are:
[[hardline]]
* AceCustom: "Gravilion", an exclusive towering SuperRobot in ''The Inspectors'' during {{The Federation}}'s re-taking of Riksent, complete with SphereOfDestruction, ChestBlaster and MacrossMissileMassacre.
** The Gravilion is actually a DummiedOut enemy unit from the first ''Original Generation'' game. It was cut because the unit took up too much memory in the GameBoyAdvance cartridge. ''Original Generations'' later discarded the unit because it didn't fit with the design plan for the game (recreate the original GameBoyAdvance games in the Playstation 2 engine).

* {{Retcon}}: In ''Original Generation 2'', Archibald pilots an Ashsaber given to him by the [[spoiler:Shadow-Mirror during his last stand in the Earth Cradle]]. In ''Original Generations'', he pilots a Giganspada, an AlternateUniverse version from the Shadow-Mirror dimension of the Giganscudo.
* TheSociopath: A textbook example - self-absorbant, arrogant, deceitful, and a thrill-seeker who enjoys nothing more than causing pain to others. It's also his biggest [[FatalFlaw Weakness]], as his inability to understand [[EvilCannotComprehendGood things such as empathy, trust, camaraderie, and other virtues]] tends to undermine his schemes (not helped by his inflated [[SmugSnake arrogance]]). [[spoiler: best shown when the bombs he planed in shelters around Rikset fail to detonate because Yukki [[NotWhatISignedOnFor sabotaged them beforehand]]; Archibald had known that Yukki strongly disproved of his "methods", but failed to realize that his subordinate had the will and resourcefulness to do something about it.]]

!!Ouka Nagisa (Voiced by Creator/MichikoNeya)
[[quoteright:220:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ouka.jpg]]
Once known as "Aurum 1", Ouka is the first of the Boosted Children at The School. During her time there, she befriends three younger children: Bronzo 27 and 28 (Seolla and Arado) and Latooni 11. She's one of the few remaining children after The School was shut down, and stays with researchers Agilla Setme and Cuervo Sero.

Ouka first appears to a surprised Latooni and her teammates, piloting an R-Eins loaned to her by the Shadow-Mirror. She initially believes the Federation has brainwashed Latooni into fighting for them and killing Arado, despite Latooni's objections that Arado's alive and that she's fighting of her own will. After discovering that Arado is not dead, Agilla decides to alter Ouka (and Seolla's) memories to make them believe Arado is dead. After the memory alterations, Ouka is given the Rapiecage, a SuperPrototype from the Shadow-Mirror based off of mecha from Project ATX. During the Rapiecage's first sortie, Ouka reveals it's equipped with a newer model of Alder Koch's GEIM System. Unlike previous GEIM System users, Ouka's able to resist the berserker side-effects of the system and maintain control over herself.

Tropes associated with Ouka are:
[[hardline]]
* {{BFG}}: Rapiecage's "Over Oxtongue Launcher"
%%* BrainwashedAndCrazy
* CaptainErsatz: Meta-example - the Rapiecage (especially the "Rapiecage Fantome" from ''The Inspector'') has the same design philosophy and naming scheme as the Flickerei Geist. In-universe, it's inverted; similarly, it's also built on the same concept as the [[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsAlpha Astranagant]] - emulating technology or out-right stealing it from the heroic factions.
* CoolBigSis: Doubles as the OneeSama, given that's how her siblings address her.
* DeadlyUpgrade: Implied in ''The Inspectors''; [[spoiler:even though Ouka is conditioned to use the GEIM System better, some side-effects hazardous to her health is evident during the Earth Cradle event, hence why she chooses HeroicSacrifice to destroy Agilla]].
* {{Leitmotif}}: ''Ouka Genei'' ("Cherry Blossom Illusion")
* MeaningfulName: Rapiecage means "patchwork" in French. The machine was created from combat data taken from the Alt Eisen, Weiss Ritter, Wild Wurger and Wild Falken. This is shown in the arsenal the mecha carries. Its system is derived from the Ashsaber (and its production number classifies it as an "[[AMechByAnyOtherName Assault Dragoon]]"), but built with modified parts from the "Valkyrie" series to make it more durable.
* SuperPrototype: In terms of being the eldest of The School children and getting the neato Rapiecage.
* ThemeNaming: "Aurum" means "gold" in Latin, hence why Ouka is the eldest and strongest of the Boosted Children.

!Wodan Ymir (Voiced by Creator/KenichiOno)
[[quoteright:150:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/200691658397713382.jpg]]

A new member of the [[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsAdvance Shadow-Mirror]] created for ''Original Generation'', Wodan Ymir's occasionally sent out by his superiors to antagonize the heroes, namely to impede their progress in quelling the Neo Divine Crusaders. Quiet, calm and exceptionally loyal, Wodan's initially mistaken for Sanger by the cast, who believes he's been BrainwashedAndCrazy by the Neo DC into joining them. When the real Sanger appears during Operation Plantagenet, Wodan develops a strong rivalry with the {{samurai}}, making it personal to be the only one to defeat him.

In reality, Wodan is an android based on the AlternateUniverse Sanger who was killed in action in the Shadow-Mirror dimension (most theories hint it was [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAdvance Vindel Mauser]] who landed the blow). His body was recovered and given to Lemon Browning to be resurrected as one of the W-Numbers to be a countermeasure against the Beowulves squadron of TheFederation. His identification is W-15 and unlike other W-Numbers, Wodan was simply modified into a {{cyborg}}, rather than being built from the ground-up. As a result, his personality's somewhat unstable; to keep him in line, Lemon has Wodan link with the Earth Cradle's supercomputer "Magus Gebo" and becomes its loyal guardian, a ContinuityNod to the ''[[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsAlpha Alpha Gaiden]]'' Sanger, the main difference being [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAlpha Sophia Nate]] having been built into Magus' core in ''Original Generation 2'' by [[MadScientist Egret Feff]].

During Operation Planetagent, Wodan appears at the Tesla-Liecht Institute and stops the [[QuirkyMinibossSquad Inspector]] [[VideoGame/SuperRobotWars3 Vigagi]] from killing Sanger, cementing their rivalry. Wodan not only buys Sanger time to get his new Dygenguard working, but [[GiveMeASword recovers the Type-3 Colossal Blade]] for Sanger to use (in ''Alpha 2'', that role was handled by Ratsel). Afterwards, Wodan's reassigned to the Earth Cradle to protect it from the ''Kurogane'' and faces Sanger outside the facility for their ulimate duel. The sheer force from their respective attacks managed to destroy the outer shell (designed to withstand ''nuclear explosions'', for the record) and cause the Earth Cradle to cave in. Unfortunately, the attack (and subsequent fall) severely crippled Wodan. At that moment, Egret orders Magus to restore the Thrudgelmir, but Wodan refuses, admitting he has lost to Sanger and tells him Sophia is now Sanger's responsibility. Wodan launches a final, killing blow on Feff and the remaining Machinery Children, but the over-damaged Thrudgelmir explodes, destroying Wodan.

Wodan is modeled after the ''Alpha Gaiden'' version of Sanger and pilots the monstrous Thrudgelmir, a Grungust Type-3 from the Shadow-Mirror world modified in the Original Generation universe by Machine Cells. Considering who Wodan's based off of, he embodies similar tropes, but to avoid redundancy, the following are either exclusive to Wodan or ones significantly changed:
[[hardline]]
%%* BecomeARealBoy
* {{BFS}}: Comes in two forms for the Thrudgelmir's Colossal Blade - a solid-based, two-handed broadsword version or a PureEnergy-emitting PillarOfLight version that seemingly extends to infinity.
* TheBrute: Out of the Shadow-Mirror FiveManBand in ''Original Generation'', though Wodan subverts the usual personality, as he's rather intelligent and calculating.
* ContinuityNod: Wodan's introduction on the Space Route of ''Original Generation 2''. [[spoiler:He attacks Tasuku and injures him. Sanger did the exact same thing when he announced [[FaceHeelTurn he has sided with the Divine Crusaders]] in ''Original Generation'']].
* EvilTwin: Of Sanger, though Wodan ''technically'' was never evil to begin with. [[spoiler:He does get his own EvilTwin [[Characters/EndlessFrontier W-05]], the BigBad of ''Endless Frontier EXCEED''. Essentially, Sanger's got one not-so-EvilTwin and one ''actual'' EvilTwin]].
* HealingFactor, GoodThingYouCanHeal: Courtesy of [[spoiler:Machine Cells]]
* InTheNameOfTheMoon: I am Wodan. ''Wodan Ymir! '''THE SWORD OF MAGUS!!'''''"
* MythologyGag: Wodan is this, in a nutshell. Not only [[spoiler:is his default SuperRobot Sanger's first machine, but his outfit's exactly the same as his in ''Alpha Gaiden'' ([[MaskPoweraside from the mask]])]]. To top it off, [[spoiler:Wodan's {{Leitmotif}} is Sanger's first {{Leitmotif}}, "The Gate of Magus"]]. Long story short, [[spoiler:he's basically an excuse to have both an ''Alpha Gaiden'' Sanger and ''Alpha 2''[=/=]''Original Generation'' Sanger in the same game]].
** In ''Original Generations'', the Thrudgelmir gains a few gags of its own. Two attacks added to its arsenal [[spoiler:were previously used by Sanger in the ''Alpha'' side-story manga "Steel Messiah"]]. While the "Drill Inferno" didn't change, the ''Hoshinagi no Tachi'' ("Slicing Sword of the Cosmos") gets slightly altered: [[spoiler:in "Steel Messiah", the attack has the Thrudgelmir spin in a circle with the Colossal Blade still solid]]; in ''Original Generations'', it's executed like the ''Ichimonji Giri'', except the blade's etheral and rips apart the landscape while swallowing its target whole.
* TheRival, ultimately leading to TheOnlyOneAllowedToDefeatYou: To Sanger
%%* TakingYouWithMe: Does this to Egret.
* ThisIsADrill: Thrudgelmir's Drill Inferno and "[[RocketPunch Drill Boost Knuckle]]"

[[folder: ODE System]]

Making its debut in the 3-episode OVA ''The Animation'' and reappearing in ''Original Generation Gaiden'', the ODE (Omni Dendro Encephalon) System was created by Professor Wilhelm V. Jürgen, a former member of the Extra-Over Technological Institute. The system was intended to network a new "GESTALT" ([[FunWithAcronyms Global Expanded Stamp out Tactics works ALTogether]]) line of mobile weapons, rolled out by Wong Heavy Industries as the VTX-001 Bartoll. When the Aerogaters invaded and Jürgen's wife and child were killed in the attacks, he drastically redesigned the system to rely on capturing humans as a biological core to derive data. He rationalizes that if the rest of the world were [[AssimilationPlot united as a single consciousness, future conflicts with extraterrestrials would spare the pain of people losing their loved ones]].

In the OVA, Jürgen uses his own body to act as the living core of the mainframe for the ODE System, installed inside a single Bartoll. The system, completely fused with Jürgen's consciousness, slowly assimilates other people into its collective, eventually leading the mass-production machines in subjugating all of humanity. However, the Earth Federation Army successfully locates Jürgen in the abandoned Hellgate Facility and disconnects his uplink with the system. Jürgen dies in the assault, but not before the ODE System releases a stream of data, sending it into the far corners of space.

In ''Original Generations'', before the Aerogaters arrived, funding for the ODE System is halted by Adler Koch, after he assumes command of the Divine Crusaders. By ''Original Generation Gaiden'', Jürgen has relocated to Wong Heavy Industries to complete the system. Rather than act individually in his quest to unite humanity, he acquires the helping hand of Kyle Bean and Selcia Farm and instead of a Bartoll, Jürgen uses a Valsion Custom Type-CF. Similar events from the OVA follows suit, but Jürgen seemingly destroys Lamia, after she is rescued by Kyosuke at the Hellgate Facility. This was enough for Lamia's allies to put an end to Jürgen.

Tropes regarding the ODE System and Jürgen include:
[[hardline]]
* AIIsACrapShoot
** StupidEvil: A system supposedly protecting humanity forces people to ''give up'' their humanity; where's the logic in that?
* AllYourBaseAreBelongToUs: Biggest modus operandi, which leads to...
** AssimilationPlot, YouWillBeAssimilated
* BigBadWannabe: "[[spoiler:Yay, I killed Lamia!...Wait a minute, what!? Duminuss killed me just after that!? And I even failed to completely kill Lamia after all!?]]"
* CaptainErsatz: One can argue the ODE System is really a cybernetic take on the [[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion Human Instrumentality Project]].
* EasilyForgiven: This is the Earth Federation Army we're talking about - one of their closest comrades was seemingly KilledOffForReal and their reaction is mostly "Poor Juergen, he's no longer himself?" Compared to what they said to Archibald...
* EveryoneHasStandards: Retroactively. Juergen himself isn't exactly very hinged when he's presented, but come ''Second Original Generation'', turns out that Kaoru Tomine, already a blatant scumbag of a MadScientist, puts him as one of the people he wanted to surpass. This can mean that even Juergen would find Kaoru distasteful.
%%* InstantAIJustAddWater
%%* KnightTemplar
* MeaningfulName: "Gestalt" is German for "form" or "shape". In English, the term refers to a concept of "wholeness", hence why it requires a biological core to operate.
* UnwittingPawn: [[spoiler:Of Duminuss]]
%%* WetwareCPU
* YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness: Said to [[spoiler:Lamia]] before the kill, only for [[spoiler:Duminuss to say it back later]].

!Beowulf (Voiced by Creator/ToshiyukiMorikawa)
[[quoteright:300:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/srw-beowulf_290.jpg]]
[[caption-width-right:300:This is what happens when you're at the far end of the "grumpy" spectrum.]]
Kyosuke Nanbu of the Shadow-Mirror AlternateUniverse and captain of the "Beowulves" Gespenst squadron, under the designation "[[RedBaron Beowulf]]". According to Axel Almer, who used to fight alongside him in TheFederation, Beowulf was identical to the current Kyosuke Nanbu of the Original Generation universe and shared many personality traits (unwavering determination, stoicism, leadership qualities, etc.), except somewhere along the line, he went AxCrazy, rambling on about world destruction and its rebirth. This is what led to Axel defecting and joining the Shadow-Mirror, and the rivalry between him and his former comrade.

As the Shadow-Mirror were ready to jump to another dimension, Axel was left to fend the Beowulves off at the Tesla-Leicht Institute. While the GameBoyAdvance version of ''Original Generation 2'' told little of Axel's fight, the ''Endless Frontier'' drama CD and subsequent ''The Inspectors'' tells us Axel manages to wipe out the Beowulves singlehandedly and face the mad Beowulf. Although Axel comes out the loser, he [[VictoriousLoser announces his victory for having stalled enough time for his allies to escape to the other side]]. This leaves Beowulf screaming in rage of his defeat, despite having beaten Axel.

Beowulf pilots a machine similar to Kyosuke's Alt Eisen, but given a blue color scheme. While this machine is never given the Alt Eisen codename, it is actually ''accepted'' as the successor to the Gespenst MK II M, and receives the proper "Gespenst MK III" designation. However, there are hints that there is more to the mech than meets the eye.

Tropes associated with Beowulf are:
[[hardline]]
* AscendedExtra: In a sense. Prior to {{Retcon}}, we are told he was Kyosuke's AlternateUniverse counterpart. ''Original Generations'' hinted at the sadistic, omnicidal personality and had him play a central role in the back-story of the Shadow-Mirror (particularly Axel). Since then, he's had expanded roles in the ''Endless Frontier'' drama CD and ''The Inspectors''. [[WildMassGuessing Some have speculated he may become a future, prominent villain]].
* AxCrazy: He's just as focused and determined as Kyosuke is, but unlike his counterpart, he has a constant, creepy PsychoticSmirk in lieu of a [[DeterminedExpression poker face]]. Also, unlike other examples of this trope, Beowulf has a motive that drives him to be like this.
** According to Lamia in ''The Inspectors'', there were rumors that he had a habit of killing his allies during combat.
* TheCaptain: Holds the rank in the Beowulves
* TheDreaded: It's implied Beowulf is ''inhumanly'' powerful, and rumored to possess abilities that are almost demonic in nature. While the validity of this has yet to be confirmed, there's something about the man that's clearly wrong.
* EvilTwin: Of Kyosuke
* TheGhost: Kinda. While he had an expanded role in ''The Inspector'', canonically he's only made one appearance in the games. Most of what is known about him comes from the Shadow-Mirror faction, and even they didn't know much about him. His association with the Einst has never been canonically confirmed either, but it is ''heavily'' implied.
* [[spoiler: HijackedByGanon: In ''The Inspector''.]]
* KineticWeaponsAreJustBetter: Even before the MK III [[spoiler:goes OneWingedAngel]], the machine singlehandedly destroyed the SRX Team in ''The Inspectors'', practically a CurbStompBattle.
* NotBrainwashed: [[spoiler:Unlike Excellen, Beowulf's been completely assimilated by the Einst]].
* OmnicidalManiac: His motive
* OneWingedAngel: [[spoiler:The MK III loses its right arm, restores it, and turns itself into a monstrosity, growing into SuperRobot proportions during the fight against Axel in ''The Inspectors''. Beowulf himself gets RedEyesTakeWarning and a nifty ChestBlaster for the mutated MK III]].
* PsychoticSmirk: [[http://gallery.gt-forum.com/d/5716-1/Beowulf.jpg Rather disturbing]] to see [[TheStoic Kyosuke]] with one of these.
* RealRobot: Subverted; the MK III may look like a PaletteSwap of the Alt Eisen, but it has a power output greater than super robots and has an untold ability of regenerate lost limbs.
* RedEyesTakeWarning: The Gespenst MK III has red eyes instead of the usual green.
* {{Retcon}}: The GameBoyAdvance version of ''Original Generation 2'' suggests Beowulf is as heroic as the Kyosuke players know, and that Axel simply hates him because Beowulf always beats him. ''Original Generations'' does a rewrite, indicating he's far more sadistic than meets the eye, justifying the rivalry between him and Axel. TheReveal in the drama CD and his appearance in ''The Inspectors'' turns him into a literal monster.
* TrueFinalBoss: In [[spoiler:''The Inspectors'']] and the ROMHack ''Original Generation 2'' Custom

[[folder: Gaia Sabers]]

The main antagonists of the ''Second Original Generation'', the Gaia Sabers (or "GS", for short) are a hand-picked military group administered by President Graien Grusman after ''Original Generation Gaiden'' to be the first and last line of defense against extraterrestrials in protecting the Earth.

Tropes common to the entire faction are:

* CaptainErsatz: The [=SRW=] equivalent of the [[Anime/MobileSuitZetaGundam Titans]]
* MythologyGag: The name of the faction is partially based on the same-named Banpresto developed game "Gaia Saver". {{Lampshaded}} by [[Characters/MasouKishin Mio Sasuga]] while LeaningOnTheFourthWall [[spoiler:prior to Shu revealing that he managed to understand and use the naked singularity and black hole theory]]:
-->'''Mio''': Gaia Sabers? "The Hero's Greatest Strategy" guys?
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: Despite the title "Gaia Saviour" in the prologue of the ''Second Original Generation'', Steinbeck makes it clear word-for-word (in English text, no less) the organization is called "Gaia ''Sabers''".

!!Duvan Org (Voiced by Creator/KosukeToriumi)

Antagonist of ''Real Robot Regiment'', Duvan is "Subject Double Zero" of the ArtificialHuman-based "Idealants Project" created by Dr. Ozunu. Duvan destroys Ozunu's lab and mortally wounds his creator after learning of the limited mortality given to the Idealants. To that end, he steals the Alles Geist and plans to harness the power of the [[Anime/MobileFighterGGundam Ultimate Gundam]] to break his "flaw" and intends to conquer mankind and rule them as their leader, [[{{Ubermensch}} believing it is his destiny as an idealized superior being to humans]]. Unlike his "sister" Ariel, who had experiences to expand her emotional aspects with the Preventers, Duvan never understood there are other means to live. He stubbornly continues to fight against Ariel and her allies, ultimately winding down to a final battle against her.

Duvan appears in the ''Second Original Generation'' in a similar role to his original counterpart. When told by Eric Wong of his remaining time left, Duvan tags along with [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsMX Eldy Mitte]] to Antarctica with hopes to use the Cross Gate Paradigm System to solve his mortality problem. In the ''Moon Dwellers'', a machine called the "Endlich Geist" appears, an apparent upgrade to the Alles Geist.

In her first appearance, Amara heads to a Mao Industries factory in France with an custom, unidentified Huckebein and destroys all existing Huckebeins models in the world, stealing the Tronium Engine in the MK III and the Black Hole Engine in the 009, before fleeing.

[[folder: Garden Of Baral]]
Loosely based on the same-named faction from the ''Alpha'' series, these people are behind the ''Youkijin'' ("Evil Mechanical Gods") for the ''Second Original Generation''. Their stated goal is the ascension of the human race into immortals, free from pain and suffering, but not all humans are compatible with the ritual, thus millions will die in the process. Needless to say, their methodology can be a little extreme. Stationed in the Garden of Baral, located somewhere in the Middle East, the faction controls the last two "God-class" Choukijin [=JakuOhKi=] and [=BuOhKi=], as well as the last two survivors of the "Evil-class" and all members of the "Spirit-class" (although only one is seen). Aside from Kanan and Taihou, [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAlpha Kukuru]] is a member of this group, as well as [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAlpha Son Ganlong]].

[[EarlyBirdCameo This faction was in fact first seen]] in ''Original Generation Gaiden'', in the middle of the Shura invasion, when strange creatures called the ''Youjin'' ("Evil Gods") began to sporadically appear and attacked the [=RyuKoOh=]. They began taking a more active stance in the ''Second Original Generation''.

!!Jun Kanan (Voiced by Ryoko Nagata)

One of a pair of Chinese Immortals, Kanan was present during the first "Kijin Wars" ("War of the Mechanical Gods") and helped bring the [=TouTetsuOh=] and [=KyuKiOh=] back under Baral's control. Although a bit extreme, she genuinely cares about humanity, comparing it it to a child that needs guidance.

The [=KyuKiOh=] excels in speed and has the greatest appetite of all the "Evil-class", while the [=TouTetsuOh=] can take more hits and is responsible for the death of Kukuru's parents back in ancient times.

A long time ago they and their brothers (along with the "Sin-class" and all lesser Choukijin) broke off from the Garden of Baral and started the Kijin Wars, which gravely took its toll on Baral's sphere of influence in the world. It was in this war that the ''Four Calamities'' were renamed as the ''Four Evils'', the ''Four Punishments'' became the ''Four Sins'', and all classless Choukijin became the Youkijin.

* FieryRedhead: A rare example for a supporting character
* InsistentTerminology: Marion destests calling the Gespenst MK III and custom Gespenst MK II by its Alt Eisen and Weiss Ritter codenames, respectively, since both were supposed to be her bid for the next-generation machine to replace its aging predecessors, until the government decided on the mass-produced Huckebein MK II. Naturally, she's been bitter about the decision. Averted by ''Original Generation 2'', since she's impressed enough by its pilots and their handling of the units.
* MadScientist: Arguably a heroic example
* ToiletSeatDivorce: She and her ex-husband [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAlpha Kirk Hamill]] broke up their marriage over technological basis for mecha.

In the ''Second Original Generation'', [[spoiler:it was she who contacted Shu regarding the impending Guest invasion and devises preventive measures for it.

[[folder:The Walking Spoilers]]

Due to the nature of the following character(s), spoilers are unmarked to avoid redundancy.

!!Arteil Steinbeck/[[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAlpha Euzeth Gozzo]] (Voiced by Creator/KenjiNomura)

The leader of the Gaia Sabers, who works as a sponsor behind the "[[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsMX Tsentr Project]]", Steinbeck was loosely mentioned in ''Original Generation Gaiden'' before appearing in the ''Second Original Generation''. Usually seen aboard the ''Air Christmas'', he orders his underling Amara to destroy the remaining Huckebeins and steal the Black Hole Engine and Tronium Engine. Following the orchestrated death of President Grusman, Steinbeck declares his absolute authority over the Earth's military, who must answer to the Gaia Sabers, with the Steel Dragon Battle Group being the only ones opposing him.

Because of Steinbeck's true identity, the following tropes are exclusive to him:
[[hardline]]
* AmnesiacDissonance: While he is by no means a benevolent person, Steinbeck doesn't truly become the BiggerBad until he regains his memories as Euzeth Gozzo.
* BeamSpam: Adamatron's "Eden Gelsh"
* CompositeCharacter: [[http://i.imgur.com/c468S.jpg Adamatron]]; it's hard to remotely say what it exactly is, even though it's an amalgamation of the [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsMX AI-1]] and the [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAlpha Nashim Gan Eden]].
* {{Expy}}: An incredibly clever one that doubles as a MythologyGag character. Unless you've played ''Super Hero Sakusen'', you'll likely not get the reference.
* GoMadFromTheRevelation: Adamatron's strongest attack "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X-5MT6EQ3vQ Elyon Yada Domar]]" bombards its target with so much forbidden knowledge that it makes them go insane. May double as a form of MindRape.
* {{Leitmotif}}: "Ultra One", which is another MythologyGag, as Euzeth's first appearance in ''Super Hero Sakusen'' was him attempting to harness the powers of Series/{{Ultraman}}.
* MeaningfulName: Adamatron is derived from "Adam" and "Metatron". Keeping in line with the ThemeNaming of the Ze Balmary Empire, Adam was the first man created by God and Metatron is Enoch, a descendent of Adam, who became an archangel.
** Likewise, to keep the YiddishAsASecondLanguage, all of the Adamatron's attacks are in Hebrew:
*** Eden Gelsh = "the fall of Eden"
*** "Yidoni Zaam Kara"
*** Elyon Yeda Doma = "to praise God Most High"
* TreacherousAdvisor: If Graien is the CaptainErsatz of [[Anime/MobileSuitZetaGundam Jamitov Hymem]], then Arteil would be [[Anime/MobileSuitZetaGundam Paptimus Scirocco]]. Like the latter, Arteil sets up Graien to die so he can commandeer control of the Gaia Sabers.
%%* VillainousBreakdown
%%* YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness
* YouWillBeAssimilated: Uses the AI-1 to assimilate the Nashim Gan Eden (and Irui by proxy) and Ing Egret to form the Adamatron and regain his memories. He also assimilates Amara and the Galilnagant.

* [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsOriginalGenerationOthersAndWalkingSpoilers Civilians

* {{Leitmotif}}: Until ''[[VideoGameRemake Original Generations]]'', certain characters didn't have designated theme songs. "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MGHwR8UprWs Born to Fight]]" and "Rail to the Dangerzone" were the available defaults.
* MeaningfulName: "Kouryuu" is derived from the callsigns of the ''Hagane'' ("Steel 2") and ''Hiryu Custom'' ("Dragon 3") battleships. "Steel" and "dragon" in Japanese are ''koutetsu'' and ''ryuu'', respectively, hence ''kouryuu''.
* ProperlyParanoid: In the ''Second Original Generation'', the crew of the ''Hagane'' becomes this while Ing Egret is staying with them. They had him thoroughly analyzed as to whether he was {{Brainwashed}} or a spy, but nothing came of it. Justified as he was found in the middle of a wreckage in the Pacific Ocean.
* SeenItAll: Extraterrestrials, {{Alternate Universe}}s, ancient HumongousMecha, [[FaceHeelTurn double-crossings]], [[HeelFaceTurn former enemies-turned-allies]], {{Artificial Human}}s, {{Eldritch Abomination}}s, etc...The group has been through a lot, so it should come as no surprise almost all of them show this trope from time to time, particularly members who have been around since the first game.

!!Elzam von Branstein/Ratsel Feinschmeker (Voiced by Creator/TetsuInada)
[[quoteright:224:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ratsel.jpg]]
[[caption-width-right:224: This caption has been overriden by [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BvbkVAnpcR4 Trombe!]]]]
-->''"Dash, Trombe!"''

The [[HeterosexualLifePartners lifetime partner]] of [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAlpha Sanger Zonvolt]], Elzam von Branstein is the AloofBigBrother of [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAlpha Raidiese F. Branstein]]. He hails from the esteemed Branstein family, HappilyMarried and a SupremeChef. Elzam debuts in ''Original Generation'', but it's filled with a GoodBadBug: due to programming errors, priority for his {{Leitmotif}} was given the highest, thus it always overrides any song, even the FinalBoss. Banpresto took it as a RunningGag and incorporated this "bug" into subsequent games. Although Elzam's one of the headlining generals of the [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsClassic Divine Crusaders]], with the death of [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsClassic Bian Zoldark]], he secretly aids [[TheFederation the Earth Federation Army]] to fight against the invading "Aerogaters". Following the end of the "L5 Campaign", the Earth Federation Army's offensive at defeating the Aerogaters, he and his crew of the battleship ''Kurogane'' vanishes.

Elzam reappears in the sequel, now sporting a [[PaperThinDisguise pair of glasses, calling himself "Ratsel Feinschmecker"]] (erroneously translated by [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsClassic Inspector Vigagi]] as "Mysterious Gourmet"). Once again, he and the ''Kurogane'' crew operate and support the Earth Federation Army in secret. To prove "[[MemeticMutation Real Men Ride Each Other]]", Ratsel's new MidSeasonUpgrade received when liberating the Tesla-Leicht Institute can ''[[TransformingMecha turn into a horse]]'' and have Sanger's own MidSeasonUpgrade mount it (no, '''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yGTlE8w5r_A REALLY]]''').

His debut was popular enough to warrant him a place in the ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsAlpha'' series, ''despite'' appearing first in ''Original Generation'' as his Ratsel persona (which is ''also'' the persona's debut), though he did exist in the background of ''Alpha'' and the earlier, yet obscure ''VideoGame/SuperRobotSpirits''. Still, his first on-screen appearance is in ''Original Generation'', thus he's placed in this category.

Elzam pilots a variety of machines, such as a Guarlion and Huckebein MK III, all painted with black/red/gold colors and called "Trombe", after his black stallion. His definitive mecha is the Dynamic General Guardian "Aussenseiter" ([[GratuitousGerman German for "outsider"]], or less literally, "[[EnsembleDarkhorse dark]] [[IncrediblyLamePun horse]]"). He embodies these tropes:

----------
* AcePilot: A former member of the "Aggressors" (including him, Sanger, Kai Kitamura and [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsClassic Gilliam Yeager]]), a group that had the first use of a HumongousMecha InUniverse. To date, Elzam is still one of the best pilots in the world.
* AceCustom: A Huckebein MK II, Huckebein MK III and a Guarlion Custom, all of them following his [[LawOfChromaticSuperiority black/red/gold coloring motif]]. Although specially designed by Bian for him to use, the Aussenseiter qualifies more as a SuperPrototype.
** Exclusively in ''The Inspectors'', the AnimatedAdaptation of ''Original Generation 2'', Ratsel uses the "[=GuarBein=]" MK III (basically a Huckebein MK III outfitted with parts from his old Guarlion Custom) before receiving the Aussenseiter.
* AFatherToHisMen: He even cooks for them. As a result, the crew of the ''Kurogane'' is fiercely loyal to him.
* AloofBigBrother: As Elzam, he's very good at concealing his emotions, which causes his brother to misunderstand him. His Ratsel persona drops this trope, to the point of being goofy.
** It's possible he adopted the "Ratsel" personality as a means to move away from this trope.
* ArchEnemy: Archibald Grims for Ratsel
* ArtEvolution: Evident in the CoolShades he wears as Ratsel - while they were oblong in the games, they become hexagonal in ''The Inspectors''.
* BadassCape: Aussenseiter has one; in the "Sturm Angriff" attack for ''Original Generations'', the cape is thrown at an enemy to conceal its vision before being blasted to shreds. During the Earth Cradle event in ''The Inspectors'', the cape is used as an AttackReflector.
* BashBrothers: It's a good idea to be part of the good guys' side just to avoid being on the opposite side to him and Sanger. Enemies are unlikely to survive that.
* BGMOverride[=/=] MusicalisInterruptus: [[Pantheon/{{Music}} His trademark]]; in fact, the ''Second Original Generation'' makes it clear players ''cannot change his default BGM to anything else''. However, the games also downplay this as Ratsel is unable to override certain {{Leitmotif}}s such as "[[Characters/SuperRobotWarsDestiny Despair]]", "[[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAlpha Twin Icon]]" and "[[spoiler:Ultra One]]", as well as the orchestrated version of "Destinies" [[spoiler:and the vocal versions of "Victory", "Skill" and "Wings of the Legend"]].
** Amusingly, the first music track Ratsel was unable to override was because an enemy from the anime ''Anime/GoShogun'' was playing ''The Blue Danube'' [[GameplayAndStoryIntegration with gigantic external speakers mounted on the ship]].
* BigDamnHeroes: His debut as Ratsel is basically doing this to the "[[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAlpha2 Project Terrestial Dream]]" crew in ''Original Generation 2''; he also did this earlier in ''Alpha 2'' for whomever is the protagonist in Scenario 31.
* CanonImmigrant: From ''Original Generation'' to ''Alpha''. Interestingly, he exists (sort of) before ''Original Generation'', appearing in [[AllThereInTheManual supplemental materials]] to ''Super Hero Sakusen'' ("Super Hero Operations"). While not directly named, Raidiese recognizes the emblem on a passing-by black mecha as the Branstein family crest. The same applies to the Aussenseiter - it does not appear in ''Alpha 2'', but winds up as Ratsel's machine for the ''Alpha 3'' finale.
* CaptainErsatz: The ''Kurogane'' to the "[[Film/{{Atragon}} Gotengo]]"; naturally, the character himself was created to fill one of the obvious casting holes in the first game (see below).
* CharClone: Primarily more of the {{Trope Maker}} [[TheMentor mentor persona]], [[Anime/MobileSuitZetaGundam Quattro Bajeena]]. He even gives a ShoutOut to Quattro by stating he's "Ratsel Feinschmeker: no more, no less". He also possesses similarities with [[VideoGame/DynastyWarriors Lu Bu]], with whom he shares his voice with.
** The comparisons continue when Creator/TetsuInada also voices another Quattro {{Expy}}, [[Anime/TurnAGundam Harry Ord]]; in fact, one of Ratsel's Gespenst Kick quotes is Ord's {{Kiai}}.
* CombinationAttack: ''Tatsumaki Zankantou'' ("Tornado Battleship-Cleaving Blade")
* CoolHorse: His black stallion Trombe back on his home colony of "Elpis"
* DueToTheDead: Temporarily shelves his Ratsel persona (by removing his shades, no less) during [[spoiler:Captain Daitetsu Minase's]] funeral.
* GratuitousGerman: All of the Aussenseiter's attacks are named in German
* GunsAkimbo: Aussenseiter's DualWielding "Lanze Kanone" {{BFG}}s
* TheGunslinger: Switches between "The Vaporizer" and the "The Woo", especially in the ''Second Original Generation''. Little bits of GunKata are also thrown in.
* HeterosexualLifePartners: Bordering on HoYay; the fact he spends so much time with Sanger has caused this to be a RunningGag among fans. [[spoiler:Taken UpToEleven in the end credits of episode 15 in ''The Inspectors'' with a '''LoinCloth''']].
* ICallItVera: Any machine he uses are always designated by him as "Trombe", ''including the [[CoolShip Kurogane]]'', which was the name of his favorite horse.
* KillTheOnesYouLove, ShootTheDog: When [[spoiler:his wife Cattleya Fujiwara-Branstein]] was held hostage in a hangar bay on Elpis being pumped with poison gas, the terrorist Archibald Grims threatened to gas the rest of Elpis. Elzam was urged by [[spoiler:Cattleya]] to destroy the hangar bay to prevent the gas from seeping into the rest of the colony. He complied.
* {{Leitmotif}}: Most characters have this, but "Trombe!" has reached memetic status due to a bug that caused it to override boss themes.
* LightningBruiser: Elzam carries the defensive stats of a super robot pilot, evasion stat of a real robot pilot and a well-balanced offensive stat tailored to ranged attacks. Coupled with the "Genius" pilot skill[[note]]+20 to accuracy and evasion stats and critical hit rate automatically[[/note]], and his Huckebein MK II "Trombe", Elzam becomes one of the best real robot pilots in the first game. Further augmented in the sequel when he receives the Aussenseiter, which comes with high attack power and armor, alongside mobility that most supers don't usually have and his "Ace Bonus"[[note]]When Ratsel achieves 50 kills or more, +10% to ranged stat[[/note]].
* MechanicalHorse: Aussenseiter's "Pferd Mode"
* PaperThinDisguise: No one knows why he insists on doing this, though the going theory is it's [[TheAtoner his way of turning over a new leaf]]. Everybody goes along with it since it's easier to play dumb than it is to explain why a former (and infamous) Divine Crusaders general is working with them.
** StartingANewLife: It seems he's not trying to hide ''who'' he is, rather he's trying to project a new image for himself. Elzam had a reputation for being aloof and hard to read, but as "Ratsel", he's much more approachable.
* RealMenWearPink: Even with a bare minimum of ingredients, [[RealMenCook Ratsel can still churn out a world-class gourmet feast]].
* RedAndBlackAndEvilAllOver: Subverted; began as a villain, but [[NobleDemon he's squarely built on original intentions of Bian's Divine Crusaders]]. When he pulls a HeelFaceTurn, he disappears soon afterwards, only to he reappear as Ratsel, gets the Aussenseiter, [[BunnyEarsLawyer but occasionally winds up playing exceptionally goofy that his brother considers it an embarrassment]].
* SupremeChef: Doubling with ChefOfIron, he's one of the few to be immune to the GargleBlaster made by [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAlpha Kusuha Mizuha]], going so far as to ''identify every ingredient'' in the dreaded drink.

!!Latooni Subota (Voiced by Riko Hirai)
[[quoteright:220:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/latooni.jpg]]
Latooni Subota is one of the "Boosted Children" of the "The School", a Federation-funded academy that trained children to become mecha pilots. Unfortunately, as the technology was still in its infancy, many were mentally and physically conditioned to handle the stress of piloting. It was so harsh that by the time advances rendered the program obsolete, only three students survived: Latooni was ''not'' one of them. During a routine training regiment, she was lost in a crash and deemed "killed-in-action" by The School. However, Latooni was found by two Federation fighter pilots, Giado Venerdi and Garnet Sandi, who took her to a hospital and, unable to find any identification other than her designation "Latooni 11", effectively raised her as their daughter and gave her a surname ([[TemporalThemeNaming "Subota" is Russian for "saturday", which falls between "venerdi" (friday) and "sandi" (sunday)]]). Despite being a child, she's allowed to become a fighter pilot, even placed in the same squad as Giado and Garnet. The rather shy and withdrawn girl responds only to them, but her skills as a pilot more than makes up for it.

When assigned to the ''Hagane'' battleship, Latooni meets the Ryusei of the "[[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAlpha SRX Team]]". Being around the AscendedFanboy considerably opens up her personality and loosens her reservations, including a wardrobe change, courtesy of Garnet. Sporting [[Main/ElegantGothicLolita a really cute, frilly dress]], she's complemented by many of the crew, furthering her CharacterDevelopment. After the [[CivilWar Divine Crusaders War]], [[Main/TheRemnant Divine Crusader Remnants]] attempt to seize the [[Main/TheKingdom Dukedom of Riskent]]. Assigned to protect the nation's headstrong [[MySignificanceSenseIsTingling and clairvoyent]] Princess Shine Hausen, Latooni is assigned to her as a bodyguard. Unfortunately, the princess is kidnapped by a Federation traitor and taken to Adler Koch, a Main/MadScientist who happens to be the former head instructor at The School. With the help of her allies, Latooni saves her new friend, and permanently rids the world of a big source of her early misery. Following the L5 Campaign, Latooni vows to find the rest of the Boosted Children.

In the sequel, Latooni is working alongside Raidiese and Kai as part of the reformed Aggressors. While testing the new Wild Falken, they are attacked by Divine Crusader Remnants and they [[GrandTheftPrototype steal the machine]]. To her horror, Latooni discovers [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAlpha Arado Balanga and Seolla Schweizer]], her former Schoolmates and close friends, are aligned with the Remnants, including their mutual CoolBigSis Ouka Nagisa. Worse, they are under the influence of Agilla Setme, another ex-School instructor [[MadScientist with a penchant]] [[MindManipulation for brainwashing]]. By ''Original Generation Gaiden'', she still continues to serve on the Aggressors, now accompanied by Arado, Seolla and ex-[[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAdvance Shadow-Mirror operative Lamia Loveless]].

During the onset of the "Sealing War" in the ''Second Original Generation'', Latooni finds out there are ''more'' Boosted Children survivors. However, Chienne, Chien and Chiot are not as willing to reform like Arado and Seolla and turn from their new Gaia Sabers employer. Although she pities their delusions of being the greatest there is, Latooni is forced to kill them. At the end of the game, Princess Shine offers her a small job of being an IdolSinger for ceremonial purposes in Riksent.

Latooni originally used a generic fighter jet, but is quickly switched out to a spare Gespenst aboard the ''Hagane'' as soon as it's available. In ''Original Generations'', she ends up in Ryusei's hand-me-down "Wildraubtier"[[note]]To reflect what wasn't mandated by plot in the original release of the first game, but what virtually everyone did by the end-game[[/note]]. When Riksent is attacked by the "Neo Divine Crusaders" in ''Original Generation 2'', Princess Shine unveils the "Fairlions", a pair of ceremonial mecha she personally commissioned, giving Latooni the Fairlion-S(ilver) to use as her personal unit. By the ''Second Original Generation'', the old Wildraubtier is retooled into the new "Wildraubtier Schnabel", though she can use the Schnabel and Fairlion-S interchangeably. She and her machines follow these tropes:
[[hardline]]
* AceCustom: Fairlion-S and Wildraubtier Schnabel
* BadassAdorable [[ElegantGothicLolita Gothic Lolita]]: The "gothic" part's been retconned due to ''Original Generations''. To date, Latooni's only worn the outfit when piloting twice. She still wears it off-duty, though.
** The ''Second Original Generation'' takes this to new heights: when executing its CombinationAttack, the Fairlion-S will ''switch out her uniform for the outfit'', then switch back afterwards. It seems a sense of fashion is a crucial part of the attack.
* BeautifulAllAlong: To the point her ''adoptive parents'' briefly have trouble recognizing her.
* BiTheWay: ''[[ZigzaggingTrope Possibly]]''; while she generally seems very committed to Ryusei and doesn't really have eyes for anyone else, there's a fair bit of "suggestive" content with Shine (see her entry). That said, the tone is very different from her flat-out, textbook affection for Ryusei and is mostly limited to subtext, thus it's hard to say definitively.
* BreakTheCutie: Until she escapes The School, but even then, boatloads of this re-occurs as School instructors and surviving Boosted Children re-appear in her life.
* ChestBlaster: Fairlion's "Vostok Laser".
* CombinationAttack, DancingTheme: "Royal Heart Breaker".
* Deuteragonist: In ''Original Generation 2'', Latooni can be considered this (co-sharing with Arado) due to The School story-line being the one with the most focus next to the ''[[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsCompact2 Super Robot Wars Impact]]'' plot.
* DistaffCounterpart: Loosely to [[Anime/SuperDimensionFortressMacross Maxmillian Jenius/Sterling]], in order to fill the playable roster in the first game[[note]]Both characters fly [[TransformingMecha transformable fighter planes]], wear glasses, have [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair exotic-colored hair]], very good stats and growths (particularly evasion), yet socially distant from their teammates before opening up[[/note]]. As CharacterizationMarchesOn, this trope becomes less evident; the ''Second Original Generation'' brings this back a bit, if only because the Wildrauptier Schnabel's strongest attack literally looks like it's lifted frame-for-frame from one of Maximillian's maneuvers in ''Anime/SuperDimensionFortressMacross'', straight down to flipping between fighter plane and humanoid mode to stay on her target.
** Somewhat less obvious are parallels to [[Anime/MobileSuitZetaGundam Kamille Bidan]]: both characters despise conflict and desire some semblance of a peaceful life, are mechanical designers in their spare time and close to women who are forced into a machine that drives them mad; furthermore, the Wildraubtier is the [[Anime/MobileSuitZetaGundam Zeta Gundam]] with the SerialNumbersFiledOff. The primary difference between them are their personalities: while Kamille is open about his distate for war, Latooni isn't quite "screaming mad" about it.
* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: The scene in ''Original Generation Gaiden'' where she helps Ryusei devise a CombinationAttack with his teammate [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAlpha Mai Kobaysahi]] carries undertones of IWantMyBelovedToBeHappy.
* DualWielding: Wildraubtier Schnabel carries a pair of "Blade Sai".
* FatalAttractor: Everyone near her always gets into bad situations - [[spoiler:her School friends die, Shine gets plugged into the GEIM System BrainwashedAndCrazy, Seolla gets placed with lots of memory modifications and attacks Latooni and Arado, Rai goes NotSoStoic when facing Archibald and almost gets killed, Ouka pulls a HeroicSacrifice and Lamia nearly gets KilledOffForReal from the ODE System]]
* FragileSpeedster: The Fairlion is extremely fragile, as in "generic fighter jet"-fragile[[note]]Justified since it's an "[[AMechByAnyOtherName Armored Module]]", which are derived from fighter jets[[/note]]. However, this is offset by the machine armed with a "Missile Jammer"[[note]]Gain a 50% chance of evading missile-based attacks[[/note]], a "Beam Coat" barrier[[note]]Reduce beam-based attacks by 1200 points of damage[[/note]] and can activate "Mirror Image"[[note]]At 130 Will, gain a 50% chance of evading any attack[[/note]]. Its "Full Upgrade Bonus" is a 20% increase to mobility, and in Latooni's hands (coupled with her having the "Genius" pilot skill), most enemies wouldn't be able to hit the machine.
* TheGlassesGottaGo: Played straight in the original game, then subverted when ''Original Generations'' {{Retcon}}ned it into {{Meganekko}}.
* GotMeDoingIt: Due to Ryusei's {{Otaku}}ness, putting her into other mecha will result in her CallingYourAttacks, often with a dash of HotBlooded; at present, this has leaked into her attacks for her default mecha.
* HeroWorshipper: Of Ryusei, but in her case, it's more of a flat-out crush.
* IconicSequelCharacter[=/=]SeriesMascot: Although far from the first original character made by Banpresto, Latooni was just an "extra" character to fill in a gap left by the lack of licensed characters. Her contribution to the first game amounts to a single scene in one particular route players aren't required to follow, with no unique unit or dedicated {{Leitmotif}}. Nearly a decade later, she has two {{Ace Custom}}s to her name, two {{Leitmotif}}s, one of the most famous attacks in franchise history, and arguably the poster child for the OriginalGeneration concept. While not as franchise-defining as [[Characters/MasouKishin Masaki Andoh]], Ryusei, Kusuha or Sanger, Latooni's instantly recognizable to [=SRW=] fans.
* {{Leitmotif}}: Notably has two - her personal theme, "Brass Sincerity", and "Fairy Dang-Sing" (localized as "Fairy Dancing") when using the Fairlion.
* NerdGlasses: Before her major CharacterDevelopment, she wore these; following that...
** {{Meganekko}}: ...she switches to a pair of these.
* RedOniBlueOni: She's the purple (in place of blue) while Shine's red.
* SaiGuy: Wildraubtier Schnabel
* ShoutOut: The Fairlions, Royal Heart Breaker, "W-INK System" and "Fairy Dancing" theme are tributes to the ''Wink'' Japanese idol duo. To further the shout, the ''Second Orginal Generation'' animation for the Royal Heart Breaker transforms her into a MagicIdolSinger.
* ShrinkingViolet: Pre-CharacterDevelopment
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: Perhaps the worst offender of all originals. Her name's always given in ''cyrillic'' when spelled out in official sources (which does confirm her Russian heritage, at least). The given name is "латунь суббота", which causes another problem since it's MISSING A SYLLABLE (specifically the "i") and is therefore inconsistent with the katakana given. As a result, a number of players have taken to calling her "Latune" (an actual Russian word, as noted below), but many still call her "Latooni" out of inertia and the better katakana match.
* ThemeNaming: The Boosted Children classes are all named after metals. "Latune" ("Latooni" is an improper romanization/katakana interpretation) [[MeaningfulName means "brass" in Russian]].
* TokenMiniMoe: She was 14 years-old during the first ''Original Generation'' and arguably the poster girl of the trope for this {{Continuity}}.
* TransformingMecha: Wildraubtier (Schnabel)

!!Kai Kitamura (Voiced by Tadahisa Saizen)
[[quoteright:150:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/193936258955480017.jpg]]
-->''"I won't say that [[PowerFist one fist is enough to destroy the world]]...[[BadassNormal But it can certainly destroy you!!]]"''

The last active alumnus of the elite Aggressors, Kai is the one who serves consistently with the Earth Federation Army, while his former teammates went about their ways and assist in another capacity. A married man with a daughter, he's commonly known as a "Demon Instructor" for his nasty, but effective methods of training. He's also an acquaintance of [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsMX "Cry Wolves" commander Albero Est]]. Currently, he's training the new generation of Aggressors, starting with Latooni and Raidiese, but after ''Original Generation 2'', lets Rai go back to work with the SRX Team, while he drafts Lamia, Arado and Seolla; following the ''Second Original Generation'', he extends the same invitation to [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsMX Hugo Medio and Aqua Centrum]].

In contrast to other veterans, Kai prefers to use the good ol' fashioned mass-produced Gespensts, but is ''so'' [[{{Badass}} experienced and skilled]] he can make it perform on par with an AceCustom. As of the ''Second Original Generation'', Kai uses the new mass-produced Gespenst MK II Custom that can change between 3 different frames (by default, he uses the "Type-N"). He and the Type-N embodies these tropes:

[[hardline]]
* AcePilot: Aside from being one of the top pilots in the military, he's one of the Aggressors (who ''invented mecha combat''), to wit Kai does all of it in a [[MechaMook lowly Gespenst]].
* AscendedExtra: Back in ''Original Generation'', Kai was just a regular military {{Face}}, of which either Ryusei or [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsCompact2 Kyosuke Nanbu]] ran into occasionally. Like Latooni, Kai is on the roster to fill in an absence of characters who would later appear. Come ''Original Generation 2'', he's effectively the field commander of the entire team, the only active Aggressor in combat (Gilliam is an intelligence officer usually away on his own, while Sanger and Elzam are still technically traitors) and one of the first consistently-appearing characters in the party for this game and ''Original Generation Gaiden''.
** BreakoutCharacter: Although not the bigger breakout than say, Kyosuke, alongside being established as a MemeticBadass, Kai is rendered the epitome of a pilot who can turn a {{Mook}}-level HumongousMecha into a weapon of mass destruction.
* AFatherToHisMen: By ''Original Generation Gaiden'', Kai is the one of the highest-ranking officers among the cast. As such, he takes the welfare of his soldiers VERY seriously. This attitude earns him the admiration and respect of those under his command, since they appreciate having such a hardened, professional veteran (not to mention a good man) watching out for them.
* {{Badass}}
** BadassCreed: Develops one in the ''Second Original Generation'' - one of his combat dialogue when using the Gespenst is ''"Soku. Ryu. Geki"'', which translates into "[[LightningBruiser Speed]]. [[NoHoldsBarredBeatdown Flow]]. [[TalkToTheFist Strike]]." If paraphrased into modern western military parlance, it roughly means "Hit fast. Hit often. Hit hard."
** BadassMustache: Has a mustache, is [[GoodHairEvilHair a good "military man"]], and is the series' poster man of...
** BadassNormal: While there are plenty of "normal" humans on the roster, Kai stands out because he doesn't have any special abilities/enhancements, access to a SuperPrototype or exceptional luck - more importantly, he doesn't need to use a SuperRobot, let alone a fancy one-of-a-kind SuperPrototype. Just give him a [[RedshirtArmy mass-produced]] MechaMook and some basic weapons, and he's good to go.
*** To elaborate, in ''Original Generation Gaiden'', he commandeers a mass-produced [[RealRobot Gespenst MK II]] and goes against a rampaging, AI-controlled "[[Characters/SuperRobotWarsMX Wendigo]]" SuperRobot... using ''manual'' controls, without preset commands. [[http://img188.imageshack.us/img188/3370/ogchronicle1230.jpg Here's just a demonstration]] [[http://img251.imageshack.us/img251/498/1250016824414.jpg of what he can do]]. In the same game, he gets [[AceCustom his own customized version of the semi mass-produced Gespenst MK II with two sets of Plasma Stakes, one for each arm]]. Most people tend to forget he's a [[IKnowKarate close-quarters combat expert]].
* ColonelBadass: Major, actually, but still fits as he's the highest ranked officer in the Battle Group's mobile forces.
* CoolOldGuy: But not ''exactly'' old; he's still in his thirties. ''Saying'' he's old, however, is his BerserkButton.
* EstablishingCharacterMoment: It happens somewhat late in the first game, but Kai demolishes a number of Lions while cut off from his allies and submerged in water (thus lowering the performance of his Gespenst). A ShowDontTell moment, since it's carried out via GameplayAndStoryIntegration.
* DrillSergeantNasty, SergeantRock: He made Masaki stand straight for an hour for misconduct and put Arado through hell in the training simulator.
* EliteMook: Essentially Kai's initial characterization - a powerful grunt with a PaletteSwap HumongousMecha yet extremely good at kicking ass with the tools he's got. This trope has been slowly phased out of him by ''Original Generation Gaiden''.
* MechaExpansionPack: The Gespenst MK II M Custom in the ''Second Original Generation'' can interchange between equipment types. Katina Tarask and Russel Bagman's machines share this ability, too.
* JackOfAllStats: Only in the first game; his late appearance in Ryusei's route didn't help the case.
** LightningBruiser: Rectified in the sequel and ''Original Generations''. As the middle man of the Aggresors, Kai also has the "Genius" pilot skill and good evasion stats compared to Elzam and Gilliam, with a high defense stat like Sanger's. Unlike his peers, Kai's melee and ranged stats are balanced. Instead, his specialty is to deal high damage in the shortest amount of time, thanks to starting the game with the "Attacker" pilot skill[[note]]At 130 Will, increase damage dealt by all attacks by 20%[[/note]] and later learning the "Drive" Spirit Command[[note]]+30 to Will[[/note]]. Finally, Kai is one of the few characters with access to the "Soul" Spirit Command [[note]]Deal 2.5 times the damage for the next attack[[/note]].
* {{Leitmotif}}: "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yOxINwtkUzk&feature=related Rushing Dandy]]"
* SwissArmyGun: The Type-N's "[=F2W=] Folding Cannon" fires normal beam rounds, but can extend the barrel to fire a WaveMotionGun.
* TeamDad: For the new Aggressors or even his fellow alumni.
* UnderestimatingBadassery: In ''Original Generation Gaiden'', Donna Gallagher thinks she can take Kai's students hostage, assault the military base, and have the Wendigo completely overwhelm Kai while he's using an obsolete machine. [[{{Understatement}} Bad idea...]]

!!Katina Tarask (Voiced by Asami Yaguchi)
[[quoteright:150:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/206602632906482776.jpg]]
-->''"I'll show you the harsh realities of war!"''

A fighter pilot assigned to the ''Hiryu Custom'' battleship, Katina acquires Kyosuke's old Gespenst MK II (and painted it red) after he received his Alt Eisen. She has two sides to her personality: (excited) angry and REALLY angry. She tends to display an inferiority complex about her piloting skill whenever anyone else is chosen to pilot a unique mecha. Although she winds up using the "[[TransformingMecha R-Gun]]", she switches back to her good ol' Gespenst by ''Original Generation 2''. Unlike most characters, Katina is one of the more easily-suspicious people among the crews: if the others gladly welcome someone who pulled a HeelFaceTurn, she'll likely be the first to say "Hey, think twice! He/she was an enemy! What if...", only to be rebuked back and she usually accepts them again. She leads the "Octo Squad", originally consisting of herself and subordinate Russel, but drafts [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAlpha Tasuku Shinguji and Leona Garstein]] by ''Original Generation 2''.

While most players believe she's a completely original character for the games, Katina made her debut from an earlier [=SRW=] [[CardGames trading card game]] with different settings: she's a sniper and her default mecha's the monstrous "[[http://srwog.velv.net/og_mecha/gabl.html GAB-L]]", which is said to have claws filling up NightmareFuel a lot. This is understandable, seeing as [[Anime/MazingerZ Dr. Hell]] built it. As of the ''Second Original Generation'', Katina uses the [[http://www.famitsu.com/news/201105/images/00043749/GU146hyYp6778G4ajTv7s9yAcoU9z77X.jpg Gespenst MK II M Custom]]; like Kai and Russel's versions, it can change into different frames (by default, she uses the "Type-G").

Tropes associated with Katina and the Type-G are:
[[hardline]]
* CharacterizationMarchesOn: Players are likely to forget she was designed to be a sniper or she used to pilot something like the GAB-L. Currently, Katina's more known for her melee-based stats and crazed HotBlooded personality, who's usually stuck with common Gespenst units.
* ChestBlaster: Type-G's "Mega Blaster Cannon"
* ColdSniper: Subverted without being a FriendlySniper, either. Back in the first game, her stats favor ranged attacks, but she's crazy HotBlooded. The sequels averts this by putting her stats towards melee.
* DislikesTheNewGuy: She's the most likely to be suspicious of anyone who switches to her side.
* DrillSergeantNasty: Moreso towards Tasuku and Arado. Also mixes this with SergeantRock.
* GlassCannon: In ''Original Generation'', she gets the "Valor" Spirit Command[[note]]Deal twice the damage for the next attack[[/note]] early in the game; beginning with ''Original Generations'', she gets access to the more powerful "Soul". Unfortunately, her defense is shoddy and horrible, alongside extremely poor Will gains.
* HotBlooded: Both in personality and in gameplay terms, having one of the cheapest "Valor" to cast. In the ''Second Original Generation'', she gains access to "Soul" instead.
* {{Leitmotif}}: "TA.CO.NA.GU.RI"; translated into English as "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=euIdHMrNvHQ Octo H-I-T!]]".
* LightningBruiser: Played with - she has one of the worst evasion stats on the roster until she reaches a certain level, the trick being getting her ''to'' survive until that point. One way is to switch her into a SuperRobot, such as the "Giganscudo"; since the Gigan is a monster of a tank, her low evasion stat becomes irrelevant. With the ''Second Original Generation'', her natural "Counter"[[note]]Pilot has a chance to perform a counterattack first when targeted by an enemy[[/note]] pilot skill plus a decent skill stat growth allows her to be on the front lines quite easily.
* MechaExpansionPack: For her Gespenst MK II M Custom in the ''Second Original Generation''.
* MismatchedEyes: Red and green pre-ContinuityReboot; ''Original Generations'' sets it back to purple and green like the trading card game.
* RunningGag: Always getting passed over for a chance to pilot whichever fancy new machine the ''Hiryu Custom'' crew get a hold of.
* SergeantRock: Katina may have temper issues, but she's the leader of the Octo Squad. In fact, she's one of the few characters in the ''Second Original Generation'' who can initiate a "[[AttackPatternAlpha Maximum Break]]" (the others being the more reserved commanders like Kyosuke, Kai and [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAlpha Viletta Vadim]]).
* ShockAndAwe: Type-G's "Jet Magnum" and "Jet Phantom"
* {{Tsundere}}: Except there's [[AvertedTrope no "dere" here, folks]]!
* UpToEleven: A regular Gespenst MK II has a set of three "Plasma Stakes" on its left arm. The Type-G has ''eight'' - three on each arm and two on the knees.

!!Russel Bagman (Voiced by Takashi Aoki)
[[quoteright:150:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/196188058769515645.jpg]]
--> ''"...Lt. Jg. Katina's yelling is worse than this..!"''

Katina's loyal (some would say devoted) subordinate, Russel's rather unremarkable in most repects otherwise, save for a very high defense stat and DivingSave abilities in-game that make him an excellent meat...err, "metal" shield. Where Katina goes, so will Russel.

The actual extent of their relationship is so low-key, it's rather hard to tell ''where'' it is. Both seem to think highly of each other (and often worry about how the other feels about their performance in combat), but show none of the usual UnresolvedSexualTension, problems or affection any of the other overt couples have. At the very least, they're close friends (whether they realize it or not) who have become completely comfortable with each other.
[[hardline]]
* AceCustom: Like Kai and Katina, Russel's pilots the Gespenst MK II M Custom, which uses 3 different frames for the ''Second Original Generation''. By default, he uses the "Type-C".
** CompositeCharacter: The Type-C is really a Gespenst MK II outfitted with the Schultzwald's weaponry.
* BoringButPractical: Despite lacking "Valor", Russel is one of the most useful pilots in the games thanks to having useful support-based Spirit Commands like "Rouse"[[note]]Increase adjacent ally's Will by 10[[/note]], "Cheer"[[note]]Earn double the amount of experience points for the next combat phase for any ally[[/note]] and "Faith"[[note]]Restore all HP to any ally[[/note]] for extremely cheap, alongside a high Spirit Point pool. Coupled with his natural ability to "Support Attack"[[note]]Provide offensive support to an adjacent ally[[/note]] and "Support Defend"[[note]]Provide defensive support to an adjacent ally[[/note]], this makes him one of the best pilots for the Valsion Custom back in the first game.
* TheGenericGuy: Quite possibly the most "normal" person in all of ''Original Generation'' without being a FlatCharacter. Additionally, Russel is the only original character (sub-pilots excluded) who doesn't have a personal {{Leitmotif}}. Ironically, this makes him ''stand out'' to many fans.
** In fact, he gets along with [[Characters/MasouKishin Gennacy I. Kozireh]] because of this status.
* GetAHoldOfYourselfMan: He actually slaps Katina once after she gets too hotheaded... ''even for her''.
* KillSat: Oddly enough, the requirements for the new secret equippable weapon "Free Electron Cannon" in the ''Second Original Generation'' are related to him.
* {{Leitmotif}}: Averted; Russel's the only playable character without a designated theme song.
* MechaExpansionPack: For his Gespenst MK M II Custom in the ''Second Original Generation''.
* MyNaymeIs: Although [[http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/Russel not entirely made up]], his name's more typically spelled with two "l's".
* {{Nerf}}: Russel in the first game is extremely good as a tanker, to the point of approaching GameBreaker levels, thanks to having "SP Up"[[note]]Increase maximum Spirit Points by 3 per level (maximum level 9)[[/note]] and "Support Defend" as starting pilot skills. In the sequels, he loses "SP Up", and subsequent games no longer become kind to characters designated as tankers.
* TakingTheBullet: Pretty much his stock in trade, game-wise. In fact, a trophy lampshades this in the ''Second Original Generation'' entitled "The Man They Call A Fortress", which requires Russel to defend an ally four times in one turn.
* OnlySaneMan: He looks like this at first, yet looking at Russel's devotion to Katina and one can't help but wonder just ''how'' sane he actually is.
* {{Shoulder Cannon}}s: Type-C's "Twin Beam Cannons"
* ShoutOut: Based on his appearance, one can argue Russel's meant to be an AffectionateParody of [[{{Mooks}} unnamed grunts]] in the {{Mecha}} genre that [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5TA-QJ2d3kk get one line and die horribly afterwards]], except Russel's averted death so far.
* StoneWall: Russel's defense stat is the best in the games.
* SubordinateExcuse: [[WildMassGuessing Kinda... sorta... maybe...]] whatever.
** It's surprising when considering the usual fan reaction to relationships like this, but very few players truly ship Russel and Katina, perhaps because it's more funny the way it currently is.
* WhatExactlyIsHisJob: Aside from being TheLancer to Katina full-time, he sometimes doubles as her personal assistant, sparring partner, [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/russel_drinkcarrier.jpg drink carrier]], TheSmartGuy (with his knowledge of Stonehenge in ''Original Generation 2'' being an example), TheBigGuy (visually, he at least appears the tallest out of the Octo Squad) and TheQuietOne).

!!Radha Byraban (Voiced by Creator/ReiSakuma)
[[quoteright:150:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/205195258022947242.jpg]]
A staff member at Mao Industries, Radha Byraban is introduced in ''Original Generation'' via Kyosuke's route. Although she has a custom white "Schutzwald", Radha mainly heads out to the battlefield when the need arises. She first appears helping Gilliam Yeager protect a shuttle (and its cargo) from being seized by the Divine Crusaders. They succeed in keeping their enemies away, but Sanger (hiding his identity) disables the launch platform, forcing the ''Hiryu Custom'' to transport the cargo. After Mao Industries is attacked, Radha goes on to help the ''Hiryu Custom'' and its efforts to stop the United Colony Corps. It's during this time Radha introduces her personality quirk: she's a fan of yoga, albeit a ''big'' fan - so much she tries to teach it to everyone she meets. HilarityEnsues when this first happens: [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsCompact2 Excellen Browning]] and Katina loudly complain about their experiences, while Viletta is in so much pain she can't even speak. The reactions of the other pilots to Radha's offers of yoga lessons come close to rivaling the reactions to Kusuha and her GargleBlaster.

In ''Original Generation 2'', Radha's still working with Mao Industries. More details about her backstory are revealed: she was a test subject at the ICS (the same institute where the [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAlpha Kobayashi sisters]] were); however, Radha was released from the tests by Cuervo Cero, a scientist she worked for and developed a friendly relationship with some time before the accident involving Mai that destroyed the ICS. When Radha meets Arado Balanga and learns Cero worked at The School, she's heartbroken he had stayed to work on the divisive program. Radha commits herself to assisting Arado and Latooni in rescuing Seolla and Ouka from Agilla Setme's control and confront Cuervo. When she gets the chance to meet Cero during the Federation's assault on the Earth Cradle, he reveals he's always cared for the Boosted Children, but hated himself for putting them through the program. When the installation begins to collapse, Cero's injured and pinned down after an attack from [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAlphaGaiden Uruz Egret]]. Radha tries to save him, but Cero tells her to leave take care of Boosted Children in his stead.

By ''Original Generation Gaiden'', Radha retires from piloting to become a civilian contractor with the Aggressors, but will return to piloting duties if the situation warrants. Since the Schutzwald is rendered obsolete by the time of the ''Second Original Generation'', Radha currently uses a white-colored Gespenst MK II M custom with the Type-C as her default. She adheres to the following tropes:
[[hardline]]
* BodyHorror: A less disturbing variation. Somehow, she's able to contort her body in such a fashion that she was able to fit inside a Huckebein MK II cockpit with [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAlpha Brooklyn "Bullet" Luckfield]] when he first sortied in it. Naturally, this scared the living shit out of him.
** YouDoNOTWantToKnow: Don't bother asking Bullet, either; he was too freaked out to give details.
* {{Flanderization}}: She expresses concern that people see her interest in yoga as her only personality trait.
* MeaningfulName: Her {{Leitmotif}}, "Padma no Asana", translates to [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0jHesidd2f4 "Asana of Destruction"]], ''quite'' the opposite of Radha's behavior, unless it's a joke towards her yoga poses.
* PsychicPowers: Played with; even though Radha was a test subject at the ICS, she never developed the same level of telekinetic abilities other Psychodrivers exhibit. However, she does have a heightened sense of awareness compared to non-psychics, but this doesn't qualify her as a Psychodriver.
* SayMyName: Does this after [[spoiler:Cuervo]] dies during the Earth Cradle's collapse.
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: Is it "Byraban" or "Bairaban"?
* TokenMinority: She's Indian, and her nationality is reflected in her battle dialogue.

!!Shine Hausen (Voiced by Reina Kaihara)
[[quoteright:150:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/201817558304523091.jpg]]
Crown princess of the "[[Main/TheKingdom Dukedom of Riskent]]", a small independent state in the Mediterranean, Shine was born with [[Main/MySignificanceSenseIsTingling the ability to see the future]] and for this reason (plus her kindgom's large gold mines), Riskent's attacked by Divine Crusaders Remnants after the defeat of their leaders at Aidoneus Island. She's rescued by the SRX Team (or "ATX Team" if playing on Kyosuke's route), and brought to the Izu Base in Japan, with Latooni and Raidiese serving as her bodyguards. Her safety is compromised when she gets kidnapped by a mole in Federation Command and taken to Adler Koch, who places her in a Valsion Custom equipped with the "GEIM System", brainwashing her into a soldier to help him take down Federation Headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland. Fortunately, she's rescued before the system can cause permanent damage to her mind.

Riskent's invaded by the Neo Divine Crusaders ''again'' in ''Original Generation 2'', and Shine barely escapes capture. This time, however, she's ready to fight back; to that extent, she personally commissioned the Fairlions with the help of the Tesla-Leicht Institute. With Latooni helming the Fairlion-S, Shine uses the Fairlion-G(old) and joins the ''Hagane'' battleship to re-take her nation. Although Riksent is safe again, Shine takes the initiative to journey with the crew to combat and defeat the Shadow-Mirror, [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsCompact2 Einst]], and [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsClassic Inspectors]], to ensure they don't become a threat to not only Riksent, but the world.

Tropes associated with her are:
[[hardline]]
* BodyguardCrush, HeroWorshipper: Of Raidiese; this starts to fade beginning with ''Original Generation Gaiden'' in favor of a focus on her relationship with Latooni and interacting with other pilots.
* ChestBlaster: Fairlion's "Vostok Laser"
* CombinationAttack, DancingTheme: "Royal Heart Breaker"
* CompositeCharacter, CaptainErsatz: Mainly a spunkier take on the various high-society/regal female characters throughout the ''Franchise/{{Gundam}}'' franchise; her experience with the Valsion Custom, however, seems to be lifted from [[Anime/MobileSuitZetaGundam Four Murasame]].
** The latter works further, given that, while character-wise she's more of a [[Anime/SuperDimensionFortressMacross Maximillian Jenius-type]], Latooni's Wildraubtier is basically the Zeta Gundam.
%%* EverythingsBetterWithPrincesses
* ErmineCapeEffect: Evident in ''Original Generation 2'' for the UsefulNotes/GameBoyAdvance during her SuperMovePortraitAttack; ''Original Generations'' {{Re Tool}}s this by giving her an actual pilot suit, but still customized for her.
** The ''Second Original Generation'' re-implements this in a hilarious way: as with Latooni, the Fairlion somehow swaps out her flight suit for her "princess idol" outfit during Royal Heart Breaker.
* FragileSpeedster: As with Latooni's Fairlion-S, the Fairlion-G has similar weapon loadouts and stats, but carries the same on-board "Missile Jammer", "Beam Coat" barrier and can activate "Mirror Image".
* GirlWithPsychoWeapon: During her BrainwashedAndCrazy stint
* {{Leitmotif}}: "Fairy Dang-Sang" (localized alternately as "Fairy Dancing" or "Dancing Fairies")
* MistakenForBadass: Briefly by [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsCompact3 Folka Albark]] in ''Original Generation Gaiden'' - since he's still [[FishOutOfWater learning about Earth customs with the Shura culture in the back of his mind]], the term "princess", in Shura-speak, means Shine should be physically strong enough to ''pound him flat''.
* MySignificanceSenseIsTingling: Known genetically to be the strongest user of clairvoyance her family's ever produced.
* NeatFreak: Implied in the ''Second Original Generation''. How did she appear in [[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsGaiden La]] [[BeneathTheEarth Gias]]? Apparently, she was cleaning her Fairlion-G just as the summoning occurs.
* RebelliousPrincess: At first; averted when she reappears in the sequel.
* RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething: Again, subverted in ''Original Generation'', but played straight once Shine gets her Fairlion.
* ShipTease: ''Original Generations'' version of the Royal Heart Breaker, though some official art with her and Latooni feels [[LesYay somewhat less ambiguous]]. Meanwhile, the ''Second Original Generation'' takes the innuendo further with a teased AlmostKiss that ends with both girls looking distinctly breathless and ''surrounded by [[FlowerMotifs roses]] and LoveBubbles''. As one comment on Youtube put it.
--> "You know, if Banpresto keeps topping themselves like this, by 4th OG, they won't have anywhere to go but just straight-up lesbian sex".
** None of this is assisted by the fact the most obvious licensed-property relationship parallel for Latooni and Shine is Kamille and Four (see CompositeCharacter above).
* ShoutOut: Aside from the ''Wink'' reference, there's a chance for Shine referring to the Fairlion's "Sonic Driver" as "[[Manga/GetterRobo Shine Spark]]". To further the joke, Shine paraphrases the ''actual'' Shine Spark dialogue spoken by [[Manga/GetterRobo Ryoma Nagare]].
* TookALevelInBadass: In her debut, she had no fighting experience, thus becoming a DistressedDamsel (quite possibly DamselScrappy, depending on the viewer). Cue ''Original Generation 2'' - she gets a custom machine that takes advantage of her clairvoyance via the W-INK System and starts taking to the front lines. Part of this, though, stems from the fact the W-INK System allows the pilot of one unit (Latooni) to remotely control the other.
** By the later parts of the story, Shine's quite capable of piloting by herself. In ''The Inspectors'', she fights against Ouka in the Rapiecage with the GEIM System activated and survives long enough to reach its operational limit. In the ''Second Original Generation'', she's thrown into La Gias without Latooni and fights there just fine.

!!Kouta Azuma (Voiced by TakumaTerashima)
[[quoteright:220:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/roar.jpg]]
[[caption-width-right:300:[[labelnote:Click here]]http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/229693dz_7861.png[[/labelnote]] to see Kouta without armor]]

-->''"[[CallingYourAttacks OVER KAISER SWOOOOORD!]]"''

A newcomer for ''Original Generation Gaiden'', Kouta Azuma is just a HotBlooded OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent from the city district of Asakusa, who receives frequent telepathic messages from a being calling itself "Roar". When his younger sister Shouko's attacked by the invading [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsCompact3 Shura]], Kouta becomes desperate to protect her, until Roar gives him instructions to transform into his armor, becoming "Fighter Roar". While this doesn't seem to be enough to repel the Shura, his grandfather Kisaburou Azuma unveils the machine he's been hiding and repairing for years: Roar's Compatible Kaiser. Kouta goes to pilot it and fends off the attackers. Just when he believes he won't be using that power anymore, he manages to escape the ODE Incident, only to see Shouko get nabbed away by Folka Albark, forcing him to go on the run after his newfound rival, get in the Compatible Kaiser and save his sister. He manages to join the ''Kurogane'' crew along the way and learn more about their operations, even making peace with Folka, who recently [[DefectorFromDecadence defected from the Shura]].

Unfortunately, Kouta doesn't expect Shouko to wind up becoming a victim of [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsReversal Duminuss]] and its brainwashing, wearing the "Emi Armor" and piloting the G-Thundergate, the companion craft to the Compatible Kaiser. Out for Roar's blood, it takes large amounts of IKnowYouAreInThereSomewhereFight to break control over Shouko, thereby rendering her as the {{Henshin Hero}}ine "Fighter Emi" and face Roar's nemesis [[Characters/CompatiHeroSeries Dark Brain]].

Kouta winds up reappearing in {{Continuity}} via the ''[[EndlessFrontier Endless Frontier EXCEED]]'' SpinOff sequel. In the drama CD that occurs prior to the game, he's transported to the Endless Frontier, with Kouta meeting [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAdvance Axel Almer]] later, surprised at [[AmnesiacDissonance his shift in personality]] and the appearance of [[Characters/EndlessFrontier Aschen Blodel]], mistaking her as Lamia. Regardless, they manage to return to their world once the misadventure ends, but for the sake of not confusing everyone, Kouta decides to keep the majority of this detour to himself (and Axel).

But getting back to the real world doesn't equate rest for Kouta, as the Earth is now under siege by the [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsDestiny Ruina]], with the Gaia Sabers making things complicated. Kouta rejoins the Steel Dragon Battle Group and heads back to Asakusa City to retrieve the Compatible Kaiser, only to find delinquent Michiru Hanaten waiting to challenge him in front of his home. He had no time to worry, as extraterrestrials begin laying siege on Asakusa City. With Michiru's assistance, Kouta recovers the Compatible Kaiser and eventually goes on full force in helping the Steel Dragon Battle Group until the end of the Sealing War.

Tropes associated with Kouta:
[[hardline]]
* AlphaStrike: Compatible Kaiser's "Kaiser Tornado"
* {{BFS}}: G Compatible Kaiser's "Overkaiser Sword"
* CallingYourAttacks: "[[LargeHam OVERKAISEEEEEEER~!! '''''SWOOOOOOOOOOORD~!!''''']]"
* ChestBlaster: (G) Compatible Kaiser's "Kaiser Burst". Doubles as a ContinuityNod[=/=]MythologyGag, as the letters "BF" (Battle Force) are seen in the attack, which confirms this is the same Kaiser from ''The Great Battle IV''.
* CombiningMecha, MechaExpansionPack: With the G Thundergate, the Compatible Kaiser becomes the G Compatible Kaiser.
* CoolBoard: "Battle Racer", Warrior Roar's flying surfboard from ''The Great Battle III'' is part of Kouta's arsenal in the ''Second Original Generation''.
* HenshinHero: Transform into Fighter Roar to fight.
* {{Hot Blood}}ed: And HOW!
* InSeriesNickname: At one point in ''Original Generation Gaiden'', [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAlpha Ricarla Borgnine]] calls it the "Pachinko Kaiser".
* KillItWithFire: "Fire Dragon"; ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin
* LegacyCharacter: Inherited the powers and title of the former Fighter Roar, who currently exists as Warrior Roar.
* {{Leitmotif}}: "Burn Now!" as Fighter Roar; when he pilots the Compatible Kaiser, "Howl, Compatikaiser!"
* PowerEchoes: Variation; his voice has a noticeable reverb effect whenever he starts yelling.
* PrecisionGuidedBoomerang: Compatible Kaiser's "Kaiser Boomerang"
* {{Reconstruction}}: Everything about Kouta and the Compatible Kaiser's done in the incredibly stereotypical, old-school SuperRobot anime style, which contrasts heavily with the RealRobot dynamics ''concerning'' {{Super Robot}}s in the ''Original Generation'' universe and mythos.
* RocketPunch: Compatible Kaiser's "Spiral Knuckle"; the G Compatible Kaiser's version clasps both hands as the "Double Spiral Knuckle". Interestingly, the latter resembles the same-named attack the Anime/{{Dangaioh}} has.
* ShoulderCannon: Again, ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin, once the G Thundergate combines with the Kaiser.
* ShoutOut: Doubles as {{Expy}} - in ''Original Generations'', the Compatible Kaiser is practically the Anime/{{Gravion}} in appearance and attacks; by ''Original Generation Gaiden'', the G Compatible Kaiser's essentially the Sol Gravion. This is because Creator/MasamiObari created, designed and directed ''Anime/{{Gravion}}'', and was tasked by Banpresto to give the Kaiser a new look for the series.
* TransformationNameAnnouncement: It's even part his name!
* YouDoNOTWantToKnow: Inverted; Kisaburou was more than willingly to tell his grandson why he hid the news about Roar and the Kaiser, but Kouta isn't interested in hearing it. In fact, he {{Lampshades}} how he doesn't want to get mixed up in "more annoying crap". Obviously, Kouta didn't know he had no choice later.

!!Shouko Azuma (Voiced by Creator/HiromiKonno)

Kouta's younger sister
[[hardline]]
* DayInTheLimelight: Shouko fights independently without relying on Kouta by deploying in the G-Thundergate as a seperate unit for the ''Second Original Generation'' in contrast to her appearance in ''Original Generation Gaiden''. See DummiedOut.
* DudeMagnet: Has attracted the attention of Folka and Michiru.
* DummiedOut: Was supposed to be a playable character since ''Original Generation Gaiden'', but time constaints forced her and the G-Thundergate to automatically combine with the Compatible Kaiser, rendering her as a sub-pilot. The fact the game's "Free Battle Mode" details her own battle quotes, with the G-Thundergate's animated attacks, proves this. Rectified by the ''Second Original Generation''.
* GoodCostumeSwitch: Her armor and the G-Thundergate turn red once she regains control of herself. Her armor also loses the mouthplate.
* {{Henshin Hero}}ine: Can transform into Fighter Emi
* HiddenBuxom: Revealed in "[[BeachEpisode The Beach Dwellers]]", Shouko's default school uniform hides her buxomed body.
* LegacyCharacter: Inherited the powers and title of the previous Emi; incidentally, Shouko and Emi are younger sisters to Kouta and Roar, respectively.
* MacrossMissileMassacre: G-Thundergate's "G-Missile"
* MeaningfulName: Named after Japanese idol singer Shouko Nakagawa, a big fan of [=SRW=]. In fact, Nakagawa also voiced Neko in ''Manga/HakabaKitaro'', the same character [[Manga/GeGeGeNoKitaro Neko Musume]] is based on, whom Hiromi Konno voiced too.
* MythologyGag: The G-Thundergate is named after the [[Characters/CompatiHeroSeries Great Kaminarimon]] of ''SD Battle Ozumo''.
* OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent: Aside from the ability to transform by summoning the "Emi Armor" from {{Hammerspace}}...
* RammingAlwaysWorks: G-Thundergate's "Gate Breaker"

!!Warrior Roar (Voiced by Creator/WataruTakagi)
The spirit that resides inside the Roar Armor that Kouta wears, he is the [[Characters/CompatiHeroSeries same-named character from]] ''The Great Battle'' series. After some unspecified time in ''The Great Battle'' series, Roar leaves the Battle Force universe with the Compatible Kaiser to pursue his nemesis Dark Brain. Unfortunately, the resulting dimensional jump severely damaged his machine, as well as tearing Roar's body apart. The Kaiser arrived on Earth where it was found by Kouta's grandfather Professor Kisaburo Azuma, who took the Kaiser and repaired it using the same technology behind the Dynamic General Guardians. How Roar manifested himself inside Kouta is unknown, but when the Shura began attacking Earth, Roar allows Kouta to use his armor to transform into his previous body and acquire his powers.
[[hardline]]
* DemotedToExtra: Warrior Roar is unavailable as a "sub-pilot" for Kouta in the ''Second Original Generation'', in contrast to his previous appearance in ''Original Generation Gaiden''.
* TheObiWan: A rare example where the Obi-Wan is NotQuiteDead - Roar's body was just destroyed, but his spirit resides in the Roar Armor.
* SpiritAdvisor: Though there are times in combat where Roar comments on how poorly Kouta performs in the armor.

!!Michiru Hanaten (Voiced by Yoshinori Sonobe)
A student of "[[NamcoBandai [=BanNam=]]] Academy", Michiru was loosely mentioned in the ''Endless Frontier EXCEED'' drama CD, but made his on-screen debut in the ''Second Original Generation''. When Kouta was in the Endless Frontier, Michiru went to Asakusa City to challenge Kouta, on his quest to conquer all high schools in Japan. Despite Kouta not being around, Michiru prepares to wait for him, to the extent of standing outside his home until he returns. Shouko wouldn't stand for this and allows him to stay in the Azuma residence while he waits. This was long enough for Michiru to develop a crush on her.

When extraterrestrial invaders attack Asakusa City, mass-produced [=JinRai=] arrive on the spot to destroy them. Unfortunately, they begin tearing apart the city because the Compatible Kaiser is hidden beneath the city's amusement park (the [=JinRai=] are programmed to destroy all Dynamic General Guardian units: the Kaiser was repaired with the same tech). Wanting to help, Professor Kisaburo leads Michiru into the underground bunker where the Kaiser is being kept and send it to street level so Kouta can use the machine to fend off the [=JinRai=].
[[hardline]]
* AscendedExtra: [[spoiler:The G Bankaran was created for ''Original Generation Gaiden'' in a promotion for the game and the ''Shuffle Battler Mode'' mini-game (though the name wasn't fixed yet; it was instead called the "Eternal Banchou") before getting an actual appearance in the series proper in the ''Second Original Generation'']].
* BadassNormal: Just your [[OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent average Japanese high school]] loudmouth delinquent, [[spoiler:who so happened to have provided the motion data for the new G Bankaran, Kisaburo enables Michiru to use the machine and assist Kouta. Most of what Michiru does in it is being straight-up physically punishing]].
* BilingualBonus: The kanji that appear [[spoiler:during the G Bankaran's "Type 8710 Dragon-Tiger Combo"]] is a very colloquial phrase most people, even some Japanese, might not understand. When literally translated, it says "I don't need your opinion!", but culturally speaking, it's the Japanese equivalent to the phrase "Fuck the police". How fitting, considering Michiru's character.
* CaptainErsatz: Undoubtedly of [[Anime/MazingerZ Boss]], but unlike him, Michiru is more competent in his behavior and attitude. [[spoiler:In regards to the G Bankaran, like the Boss Borot, it's a resupply unit, but unlike Boss' machine, which teeters between JokeCharacter and LethalJokeCharacter in its appearances, Michiru's mecha is neither and a straight-up MightyGlacier]].
%%* DelinquentHair
* EyeBeams: [[spoiler:G Bankaran's "G Beam"]]
* GenderBlenderName: "Michiru" is a more commonly associated name for girls than guys. {{Lampshaded}} by Kouta in a save-quit dialogue in the ''Second Original Generation''.
* HotBlooded: [[spoiler:[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lHvmL-Kk0NI This includes his mecha]]]]
* ImprobableWeaponUser: [[spoiler:The G Bankaran [[{{Hammerspace}} takes out a giant duffle bag from nowhere]] for its Type 8710 Dragon-Tiger Combo attack and hammers its opponent with it]].
* JapaneseDelinquents: Who's on the road to be number one in Japan
* KansaiRegionalAccent: Played with; he only acquired the accent because his current residence is in Osaka. According to him, he was born in Tokyo, but moved to Osaka when he was 10-years old.
* KickThemWhileTheyAreDown: Literally, [[spoiler:for the G Bankaran's "Karan Kick"]].
* {{Leitmotif}}: [[spoiler:''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IMjBBl2ypYQ Gantetsu Banchou G Bankaran no Uta]]'' ("Song of the Iron Stubborn Gang Leader G Bankaran")]]
* PunnyName: [[spoiler:G Bankaran's Type 8710 Dragon-Tiger Combo]] is a pun on Michiru's surname - ''Ha'' (8), ''na'' (7), ''ten'' (10).
* RapidFireFisticuffs: [[spoiler:G Bankaran's "Ban Punch"]]
* ShutUpHannibal: Delivers a magnificent one to the Boosted Children of the Argent-class, who claim they're on the "side of justice" by aligning with the Gaia Sabers as they terrorize and remind the other Boosted Children of the horrid experiments done to them, telling them it's blatantly clear who's the villain here and what they really are - a pack of stray dogs just wagging their tails for a meal.
-->'''Michiru''': The weaker they are, the louder they bark.
* WalkingSpoiler: [[spoiler:The fact Michiru's the pilot of the G Bankaran that had absolutely no {{Foreshadowing}} and is a playable character]] is the reason for the abundant amount of spoiler tags on this page.
* WingdingEyes: Anytime he sees Shouko, Michiru's irises turn into pink hearts, alongside a LuminescentBlush.
* YoungerThanTheyLook: Nearly the same age as Kouta at 20-years old, yet has [[FaceOfAThug the look of a 30-year old]].

!!Yong Gebana (Voiced by Creator/SaoriHayami)
[[quoteright:100:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/yong_gebana_5231.png]]
Making her debut in ''Dark Prison'', Yong Gebana is a pilot from the Earth Federation's "Test and Evaluation Command #3" humanoid mobile weapon development team. During a test run for the "Pfeil III", a modified version of the mass-produced Huckebein MK II, Yong gets pulled into La Gias via the mass summoning event and aligns with [[Characters/MasouKishin Shu Shirakawa]] and his party in order to find a way back to the surface world.

She returns in ''The Moon Dwellers'', where she joins the Steel Dragons.
[[hardline]]
* AbnormalAmmo: Pfeil III's "Sword Launcher", which launches the daggers on the "Gunstar Blader"
* AceCustom: The Pfeil III is created by taking into account suggestions made by various teams using mass-produced Huckebeins in combat with desired features in mind.
* DitzyGenius: Yong has a serious personality when it counts and operates "by the book" most of the time. She has a slight obsession with data, represented by how she acquires and utilizes it constantly during combat (her debut scenario is called "Auditor Girl", referencing this).
* {{Foreshadowing}}: [[spoiler:Yong mentions plans for the Pfeil III were stolen by the Inspectors off-screen during ''Original Generation 2'', the first indicator she isn't an Earthling. Also take notice of the Gunstar Blader - its design is based on the same weapon used by the "Graterkin", the [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsClassic Zuvorg Alliance]] machine belonging to [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsClassic Mekibos Bulverde]]]].
* GivenNameReveal: [[spoiler:"Gayatoba Sucheka"]]
* GratuitousGerman: "Pfeil" means "arrow" in German, while III is pronounced as "drei", German for "three".
* InSeriesNickname: Following her GivenNameReveal in ''Dark Prison'', she claims her allies can start addressing her that, but they continue to call her "Yong". [[spoiler:Meanwhile, Mekibos calls her "Gera", a shorter version of her Zuvorg name]].
* MidSeasonUpgrade: [[spoiler:A [[VideoGame/SuperRobotWars4 Liege Geios]], provided [[GuideDangIt players know where to find it]], and only usable in the last two scenarios of ''Dark Prison'']].
* {{Leitmotif}}: "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PkKnMpKxsGc Auditor Girl]]"
* MerlinAndNimue: Yong has a "master" whose advice or instructions she usually references when in self-thought or whose existence she uses as an encouragement; more often than not, Yong usually praises his keen farsight.
* PunnyName: Played with; in a save-quit intermission scene, Yong assures her name isn't derived from the word ''yon'' meaning "four" in Japanese, even though she was introduced in scenario 4 of ''Dark Prison''.
* TheReveal: [[spoiler:Yong's master is Mekibos, who sent her from the Zuvorg Alliance to spy on [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsClassic Teniquette Zezenan and the Guests]] for him just as their invasion began]].
* ShipTease [[spoiler:When Mekibos is asked if [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsClassic Justine Chafrois]] is an old girlfriend of his, Yong screams loudly "Nothing of the sort!"]].
* TheStoic: Played with; [[spoiler:because the Zuvorg is primarily an aristocratic hierachy, Yong's family isn't placed high in their society, it explains why she addresses Mekibos so formally. When he insists they can talk to each other casually, she hesistates to do so]].
* SwissArmyGun: Pfeil III's Gunstar Blader
* WaveMotionGun: Pfeil III's "Switchblade Gun", the energy weapon on the Gunstar Blader

!!Ing Egret (Voiced by Creator/HiroshiOkamoto)
-->''"Fall into.....THE SUPER GRAVITY WELL!!"''
The last of the [[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsAlpha Machinery Children]], Ing made his debut in an ''Alpha 2'' side-story manga called "Lost Children" (but since this is his game debut, his entry will go here). Following the defeat of the [[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsAlpha Nashim Gan Eden]], Ing awoke and found himself within a badly damaged Huckebein MK II. Having no idea who he was or where he had come from, Ing soon found himself under attack from the Alpha Numbers, specifically those who had went to the BadFuture via ''Alpha Gaiden''. When they saw his face, they realized he was one of the Machinery Children and kept labelling him as "Egret". Ing managed to hold back the Alpha Numbers and caused a huge explosion, allowing him to make a quick escape.

Upon waking up from the explosion, Ing found himself under the care of the Alpha Numbers. Giving him a place to recuperate, Ing tells them his situation and how they kept referring to him as Egret. Suddenly, the place is attacked by mysterious Bergelmirs, mass-produced Huckebein MK II units mutated by Machine Cells, under orders to find and capture Ing. The Alpha Numbers retailate and Ing manages to hijack a Bergelmir of his own. Damaging one of the enemy pilot's mask reveals to Ing the attackers and him share the same face. After the enemies retreat, the Alpha Numbers tell him the location of the Earth Cradle and Ing sets out to find the truth about his existence.

Ing appears in the ''Second Original Generation'' escaping from the Gaia Sabers' headquarters on Aidoneus Island, but is caught up by Duvan Org in the Alles Geist and shot down in his escaping unit. Floating near-lifelessly in an escape pod in the Pacific Ocean, Ing is found by members of the "[[Characters/SuperRobotWarsReversal L&E Corporation]]" and brought aboard the ''Hagane'' for recovery. Unfortunately, [[AmnesiacDissonance Ing reawakens with no memories of who he is]], but willingly accepts to help the crew and their situation during their sojourn into La Gias by using the "R-Blade Custom". After returning to the surface world and sensing his extraordinary piloting capabilities, Ing is given a custom [=EXbein=] called the "Ashe" (the [=EXbein=] having [[CanonImmigrant first appeared in]] ''The Inspectors''), after Gaia Sabers member Amara Barton destroys all of Mao Industries' Huckebeins. By the end of the game, Ing is drafted into the reformed "PTX Team", headed by [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsClassic Irmgult Kazahara]].

Ing's tropes include:
[[hardline]]
* AttackDrone: [[spoiler:EX-[=EXbein=]'s "Sliders"]]
* BadassCape: Ing himself and the Ashe
* {{BFG}}: [[spoiler:EX-[=EXbein=]'s "Black Hole Buster Cannon"]]
* {{BFS}}: Ashe's/[[spoiler:EX-[=EXbein=]'s]] "T-Link Saber"
* BookEnds: Ing is the first playable character starting in the prologue of the ''Second Original Generation''. By heading to the TrueFinalBoss, he'll be the last unit deployed in the battlefield, [[spoiler:due to being absorbed by [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAlpha Euzeth Gozzo]] and the Adamatron]].
* CallBack: Doubles as a ''very'' subtle piece of {{Foreshadowing}} (see below) - when he joins the Steel Dragon Battle Group, he sorties in an R-Blade Custom. In ''[[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsAlpha Super Robot Wars Alpha 3]]'', the R-Blade Custom is the only machine [[spoiler:[[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAlpha Cobray Gordon]] could be swapped into other than the Werkbau and Dis Astranagant]].
* CloningBlues: As part of the Machinery Children, Ing is a clone of Arado, whom all are based off of in ''Original Generation''.
** TheReveal: [[spoiler:Ing is a "hybrid" clone of the "Balshem" series of clones and the Machinery Children, created so Euzeth can gain access to the Nashim Gan Eden by having Ing as its "artificial pilot" in place of Irui Gan Eden]].
* CutShort: ''Lost Children'' ended following a one-volume run without any resolutions; the ''Second Original Generation'' expands what was previously untold about Ing.
* {{Foreshadowing}}: Because of TheOtherDarrin, the fact Ing isn't voiced by Creator/AkiraIshida, who portrays all the Machinery Children, is a clue about his identity. Like Cobray, Ing's first {{Leitmotif}} is a composite remix of "Gate of Magus", the {{Leitmotif}} of the Machinery Children, [[spoiler:and "Time Diver", which belongs to Ingram]].
** OlderThanYouThink: Ing was foreshadowed since ''Original Generation 2'' when [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAlphaGaiden Egret Feff]] mentions a comment [[http://i41.tinypic.com/2ptb62f.png about the Ing series]].
* {{Leitmotif}}: "22nd Child" and "[[TitleDrop Lost Children]]"
* MeaningfulName: His name is derived from "Inguz"; in keeping the ThemeNaming of the Machinery Children, Inguz is a Nordic rune which resembles two Xs together. [[spoiler:Makes sense when his MidSeasonUpgrade is called the "EX-[=EXbein=]" ([[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment no, really]])]].
* MultiColoredHair: Lavender with a strip of periwinkle.
* PsychicPowers: Unlike the other Machinery Children, Ing is a Psychodriver. To accomodate this, the Ashe is installed with the "T-Link System".
* SuperPrototype: The [=EXbein=] is the prototype of the Huckebein MK III, though it's not entirely known whether the Ashe is stronger; canonically, the [=EXbein=] is weaker than the MK III.
** AceCustom: The Ashe is modified from the [=EXbein=] significantly, though it's probably because it was put together with a bunch of spare parts [[spoiler:after it was damaged by Amara and the Galilnagant]].
** Additionally, [[spoiler:the EX-[=EXbein=]]] can potentially be a testbed for the technology that will later be incorporated into the [[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsAlpha SRX Altered Banpreios]].
* SweetTooth: One of Ing's traits is he enjoys sweets a lot; he particularly didn't mind the "strawberry jam-flavored rice balls" made by [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsDestiny Cliana Rimskaya]].
* UnrealisticBlackHole: [[spoiler:As per the standard for the Huckebein, the Black Hole Buster Cannon starts with Ing trapping his target in a psychic field before blasting them with a black hole from the {{BFG}} generating smaller black holes; [[StuffBlowingUp they all wind up exploding]]]].
* UnwittingPawn: [[spoiler:''Everything'' he does is a part of Arteil Steinbeck's plan to retrieve his "Void Memories" as Euzeth]].

!!Ariel Org (Voiced by Creator/YumikoKobayashi)
[[quoteright:220:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/arielorg_9680.png]]
-->''If I'm with the Flickerei, I can do it.''

Female protagonist of ''Real Robot Regiment'', Ariel Org is "Subject Zero", the first of the ArtificialHuman-based "Idealants Project". In her game of origin, she is tasked by her dying creator Dr. Enzo Ozunu to pilot the Flickerei Geist and stop her "brother" Duvan Org, the second Idealant created by the project, after he destroys Ozunu's lab. Ariel allies with the "[[Anime/MobileSuitGundamWing Preventers]]" to pursue Duvan, but also learns to express herself, as she believes she lacks the emotional capabilities of a human. When Ariel defeats Duvan and his transformed Alles Geist, the machines disappear in a brilliant flash of light. While everyone comments Ariel is likely dead, she manages to escape to the Guyana Highlands and lives the rest of her remaining life in memory of her brother.

In the ''Second Original Generation'', Ariel begins as a member of the Gaia Sabers along with Duvan, but after being told by Professor Eric Wong regarding the Idealants Project, alongside questioning the Gaia Sabers' motives, she flees with the Flickerei Geist with some help from Professor Wong. Seeing another display of the Gaia Sabers' methodologdy, she immediately defects to the Steel Dragon Battle Group. At the end of the game, Ariel is invited to join the ATX Team.

Ariel pilots the Flickerei Geist, a machine made from parts of the Gespenst MK III and various other Personal Troopers. In the ''Second Original Generation'', the Flickerei is made from parts of scrapped machines, including the Rapiecage and some elements of the Alt Eisen, particularly its right arm torn off by Axel during "Operation Plantagenet" in ''Original Generation 2''.
[[hardline]]
* AlphaStrike: Flickerei Geist's "Code: U.U.N." (Ultimate Uncanny Nail)
* ArtificialHuman: Not a [[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsAdvance W-Series]] android, but is one of two subjects coming out of the Idealants Project.
* BecomeARealBoy: Was TheStoic, but grows out of it.
* CombinationAttack: "E.D.N." with [[spoiler:Kyosuke and the Alt Eisen Riese]].
* {{Expy}}: In the ''Second Original Generation'', the Flickerei Geist is based off of data from the Alt Eisen. From a physical standpoint, the machine's pretty much what would happen if the Alt and [[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsCompact2 Weiss Ritter]] had a baby. However, it turns out the Flickerei is mainly based on the Alt and the Rapiecage (amusingly, another machine whose name means "patchwork"), even having it's trademark Code U.U.N. attack.
* FrickinLaserBeams: Flickerei Geist's "Force Ray"
* GlassCannon: Like the Alt Eisen, the Flickerei Geist has the same amount of firepower, but doesn't have the Alt's armor stats to back itself up.
* HeelFaceTurn: Started out as a member of the Gaia Sabers chasing after Ing. The next time she appears on the battlefield, she jumps ship from them.
* {{Leitmotif}}: "Flickerei Geist"
* MeaningfulName: "Flickerei" means "patching/patchery" and "geist" is "ghost" in German. The Flickerei Geist is built using different parts from other Personal Troopers, namely those derived from the Gespenst line ("gespenst" meaning "spectre" in German).
** [[spoiler:"Faul Kern" is loosely translated as "rotten core" in German. Keeping in mind the Jetzt are human-engineered Einst, the Faul Kern in the Flickerei is flawed and cannot evolve]].
* PileBunker: Flickerei Geist's "Revolver Stake"
* RedOniBlueOni: The blue to Duvan's red
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: Realistically, her name should be "Arriere" ("rear" in French) to keep the loose ThemeNaming between her and her brother "Devant" ("front" in French), though neither are real names.
** Overlaps with MeaningfulName[=/=]ThemeNaming, as the original form of their surname Org should "Ogre". By translating their complete names in Japanese, they become "Devant Ogre" (or ''Zenki'', as in "front demon") and "Arriere Ogre" (or ''Gouki'', as in "rear demon"). Their mecha also reflect this: the Alles is the larger of the two (representing ''Zenki'') while Flickerei is much smaller (representing ''Gouki''). Finally their "father" Dr. Ozunu is a reference to the [[http://eos.kokugakuin.ac.jp/modules/xwords/entry.php?entryID=425 "En-no-Ozunu" Shinto folk tale]], thus completing the circle.
* WreckedWeapon: In the ''Second Original Generation'', the Flickerei Geist is built out of salvaged or damaged parts from other mecha. Its Revolver Stake arm is the same one Axel tore off the Alt Eisen in ''Original Generation 2'', while its "Autocannon" left arm belonged to the Rapiecage, salvaged from the Earth Cradle. The main chassis is what's left from the incident in the past that deemed the Flickerei [[FlawedPrototype a failed unit]].
* YourDaysAreNumbered: [[spoiler:Ariel's short lifespan is due to being a product of the Idealants Project. Lamia is sent to solve this problem at the end of the ''Second Original Generation'']].

[[folder: Ship Captains]]

!!Daitetsu Minase (Voiced by Creator/HidekatsuShibata)
[[quoteright:150:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/1_00103.png]]
The CoolOldGuy among the originals, Daitetsu Minase is the captain of the space-exploration ship ''Hiryu'' years before the events of the first game. After a deadly encounter with the Aerogaters near Pluto, the ''Hiryu'' is forced to retreat after being overpowered. This incident hovers over Daitetsu, as he swears he won't allow such a near-death incident to happen again. By then, he's moved to a rank of commandant of a military academy, where he trains his future XO and protege Tetsuya Onodera, Lee Linjun and Lefina Einfeld. Just as he becomes captain of the newly christened ''Space-Noah'' class battleship ''Shirogane'' (with Tetsuya as his deputy), Shu Shirakawa damages it with the Granzon before its maiden voyage. Despite two ship disasters on his record, Daitetsu's given command of the second ''Space-Noah'' battleship ''Hagane'' during the Divine Crusaders War. Fortunately, he has more success, as the ''Hagane'' single-handedly attacks its headquarters and achieves victory. Depending on which route players take in the game, the ''Hagane'' is either scuttled in order to infiltrate the White Star or assists the rebuilt ''Hiryu Custom'' in the assault.

By the time ''Original Generation 2'' rolls in, Daitetsu's still captain of the rebuilt ''Hagane'', despite talks with his superiors he should retire from active duty and return to the academy to train new recruits. He leads the ship through another war with the Neo Divine Crusaders, including the invading [[HumanAliens Inspectors]]. During an assault at the Inspectors-occupied North American Langley Base, [[{{Jerkass}} Lee]] [[FaceHeelTurn springs a surprise preemptive]] on the ''Hagane'' in order to sink it. The attack wounds Daitetsu, but he quickly orders both the ''Hagane'' and ''Hiryu Custom'' to make their escape.

Daitetsu has a fondness for sake, and keeps a bottle in his office for special occasions.

Tropes associated with him are:
[[hardline]]
* BadassGrandpa: Justified because he's got a granddaughter and a battle-hardened veteran.
* BlessedWithSuck: Surprise attacks seem to have it in for Daitetsu. He lost two ships because of it, and just when it looks like he'll get past this trope, Lee comes out of nowhere and nearly sinks the ''Hagane''.
* TheCaptain: All ''Space Noah''-class battleships are under his command, even if it was for a short period.
* CaptainErsatz: The [=SRW=] equivalent of [[Anime/UchuuSenkanYamato Juzo Okita]], right down to the amphibious [[TheBattlestar battlestar]] armed with a bow-mounted WaveMotionGun.
* CoolOldGuy: Gains a lot of admiration and respect from the younger cast members. In fact, [[spoiler:a funeral is held following the [[PlayerPunch tragic]] [[WhamEpisode scenario]]. To that end, some of the characters' portrait has them crying; even Elzam arrives ''in person'' rather than as his Ratsel persona, as visiting his funeral using a disguise, in his own words, is disgracing Daitetsu's memories]].
* GoodSmokingEvilSmoking: Averted; players consistently see Daitetsu with a corn-cob pipe in his mouth, but rarely see him lighting it or taking a puff.
* HeroicWillpower: [[spoiler:The injuries he receives at Langley are fatal, but Daitetsu holds out long enough to ensure a hasty, safe retreat for both ships before quietly succumbing to his wounds]].
%%* ReasonableAuthorityFigure
%%* SeadogBeard
* TeamDad: For the entire cast

!!Tetsuya Onodera (Voiced by Jin Horikawa)
[[quoteright:150:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/204632308069498503.jpg]]
Adjutant to Daitetsu, Tetsuya graduated from the military academy Daitetsu taught at. Placed second overall in his class, right behind Lee, but for reasons unexplained, he's chosen over the more-qualified Lee (on paper, at least) as Daitetsu's second-in-command. He survives the Antarctic attack on the ''Shirogane'' and moves on to become XO of the ''Hagane'' during the first Divine Crusaders War. For the most part, Tetsuya acts like an overreactive, nervous rookie, serving as a form of comic relief for the originals. However, depending on the route played in ''Original Generation'', Tetsuya reveals himself as quite the brilliant tactician, seen with his strategy of using the recoil of the "[[WaveMotionGun Tronium Buster Cannon]]" on the bow of the ''Hagane'' as a means of escaping from what would've been a suicide attack on the Aerogaters' White Star.

During the second Divine Crusaders War, Tetsuya's still executive officer of the newly-repaired ''Hagane'', despite suggestions from several people that with his talents, he should be given command of his own ship. For the most part in ''Original Generation 2'', Tetsuya still acts like his semi-goofy self, until Lee's [[FaceHeelTurn defection to the Shadow-Mirror]] and his surprise attack on the ''Hagane''. This event considerably forces Tetsuya to [[TookALevelInBadass man up]] and assume command of the ''Kurogane'' for the rest of the Inspector conflict, albeit under the title of "Deputy Captain". By the time ''Original Generation Gaiden'' rolls in, he's the full-fledged captain of the repaired ''Hagane''.

He embodies these tropes:
[[hardline]]
* BadassNormal: From ''Original Generation 2'' onwards, he attains the badass part.
* BunnyEarsLawyer: Starts out the comic relief and nearly seems useless; hell, this is even reflected in his Spirit Command list. Then, when players least expect it, Tetsuya shows just why he graduated so high in his class.
* CantHoldHisLiquor: Unlike Daitetsu, Tetsuya can't really hold his liquor well and gets drunk easily. It's gotten to a point where he's mocked for having such low tolerance.
* DemotedToExtra: He's back to being the executive officer of the ''Hagane'' for ''The Moon Dwellers'' to make way for new ship captain Gint. While it was an accident, he did [[spoiler:kill President Graien Grusman]] during the ''Second Original Generation''.
* DynamicEntry: That drill on the ''Kurogane'' isn't simply just for show
* NewMeat: First the rookie, now ascended to TheCaptain.
* OlderThanTheyLook: He was ''29'' in the first game.
* RammingAlwaysWorks: Subverts it in the first ''Original Generation''game , then plays it gloriously straight in the sequel.
* ShipTease: Meta-example - since they're both captains of capital ships, he and Lefina have often been teased as a couple.
* ThisIsADrill: "Titanic Drill" on the bow of the ''Kurogane''
* WaveMotionGun: "Tronium Buster Cannon" on the bow of the ''Hagane''

!!Lefina Enfield (Vocied by Creator/JunkoIwao)
[[quoteright:150:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/201817558304521504.jpg]]
Captain of the refitted ''Hiryu Custom'', Lefina gradutated at the top of her class and given command of the ship on what's labelled as a "trial basis". At 18 years-old, Lefina is shy, nervous and very unsure of her abilities. As a result, she tends to defer a lot of decisions to the more experienced leaders, like deputy captain Sean Webley (Daitetsu's former adjutant on the ''Hiryu'') and ATX Team leaders Sanger and Kyosuke. During the Divine Crusaders War, she leads the ''Hiryu Custom'' and the ATX Team against the entire United Colony Corps defensive force and slowly matures into a dependable leader. The ''Hiryu Custom'' succeeds in defeating the Corps and re-establishing Earth Federation control in space. She also participates in the L5 Campaign; however, Lefina's involvement varies slightly depending on which route players choose. After the war, the ''Hiryu Custom'' is assigned to the Icarus asteroid base in the asteroid belt beyond Mars.

In ''Original Generation 2'', the ''Hiryu Custom'' is recalled back to Earth initially to investigate the disappearances of random Earth Federation Army squads in the L2 sector. After an attack on Mao Industries by a mysterious alien robot, the ship's assigned to protect the White Star from an alien attack. Lefina orders a full retreat from the White Star after the fleet stationed there is wiped out by the Inspectors. She also assists in the evacuation efforts from Mao Industries and the Tesla-Liecht Institute from the Inspectors, and eventually rejoins the ''Hagane'' in fighting them off. After these events, the ''Hiryu Custom'' is assigned to the Moon's defensive forces. By ''Original Generation Gaiden'', the ''Hiryu Custom'' is once again called back to action against the rampaging Bartolls and the Shura invasion.

Lefina functions nearly as a DistaffCounterpart to Tetsuya: both are quite easily startled and teased, only she has more potential for {{Moe}}. She embodies these tropes:
[[hardline]]
* CaptainErsatz: Compare Lefina to [[Anime/MartianSuccessorNadesico Yurika Misumaru]] - both have roughly the same age and combat experience and they command their respective battleships which feature a gravity-based WaveMotionGun. Sans appearance, while Lefina is slightly shy (but will pull through without being a ShrinkingViolet), Yurika is more ditzy, yet outgoing.
* DitzyGenius [[TheCaptain Captain]]: She's 18 and ''already'' a battleship captain. To counter that, she's rather {{Dojikko}}-ish. At one point in ''Original Generation 2'', she doesn't realize she's speaking to Elzam under his PaperThinDisguise.
* {{Fanservice}}: Was been roped by [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsCompact2 Excellen Browning]] [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/lefina_playboybunny.jpg to dress up]] as a PlayboyBunny in ''[[AnimatedAdaptation Divine Wars]]''. Cue a collection of MaleGaze, {{Nosebleed}} and SpitTake.
* MeaningfulName: "Hiryu" means "soaring dragon". Not only is the meaning supposed to be a reference to it "soaring through space", but also because the battleship's bow is designed to ''look'' like a [[http://i.imgur.com/DDRLG.jpg dragon]].
* YoungAndInCharge: While she's not ''the'' youngest character in the cast, Lefina is the highest ranking member in the entire Steel Dragon Battle Group; all major decisions made by the Battle Group are deferred to her. Simultaneously, she's the youngest of the other commanders by a substantial number of years.

[[folder: Supporting Characters]]

!!Sean Webley (Voiced by Kan Tanaka)

Vice-Captain of the ''Hiryu Custom'', Sean is a close friend of Daitetsu and loves to spend time drinking with him. He was previously the second-in-command of the ''Hiryu'' with Daitetsu as its captain before their trip near Pluto and their first encounter with the Aerogators. One of his hobbies include openly guessing the three sizes of the female crew and pilots, even flirting with them.
[[hardline]]
* DirtyOldMan: In some bizarre way, he knows all of Lefina's three sizes.
* HandsomeLech: Sean may be tempered by age, but he represents what an OfficerAndAGentleman is - although he flirts, he does not grope or leer on the many attractive females, though he makes it clear he appreciates their presence. Note pre-ContinuityReboot, he's responsible for forcing Latooni to permanently wear her ElegantGothicLolita outfit.
* NumberTwo: Lefina's XO aboard the ''Hiryu Custom''
* OneLastSmoke: Variation; Sean had saved a bottle of Scotch to share with [[spoiler:Daitetsu if they succeeded with Operation Plantagenet]]. [[LibationForTheDead He tosses away the bottle into the sea as an offering to his fallen friend]].

!!Eita Nadaka (Voiced by Hirofumi Tanaka)

A bridge operator aboard the ''Hagane''.
[[hardline]]
* AscendedExtra: Went from a non-playable secondary character in the first game to a "sub-commander" of a battleship in the sequel.
* BridgeBunny: A rare male example
* {{Megane}}: Even becomes the brunt of a joke during a save-quit conversation
* NumberTwo: Ascends to this position in place of Tetsuya [[spoiler:after Daitetsu is killed in action, and Tetsuya becomes captain]].

!!Eun Hyojin (Voiced by Creator/ShihoKawaragi)

Bridge operator for the ''Hiryu Custom'', Eun is Lefina's best friend, and is the one who gave her the confidence she needed when she was unsure of her abilities.
[[hardline]]
* AscendedExtra: From a non-playable secondary character in the previous games to a "sub-pilot" of a battleship in the ''Second Original Generation''.

!!Azuki Sawa (Voiced by Creator/MaiAizawa)

Another bridge operator, specifically communications support, aboard the ''Hagane''.
[[hardline]]
* BreakoutCharacter: Of sorts; she has more lines than Eita (who has been in ''Original Generation'' since his debut in the first game) and even makes it into the second ending of ''The Inspector'' instead of him.
* CanonForeigner: Debuts in ''The Inspectors''; however, she appears in the ''Second Original Generation'', rendering her a...
** CanonImmigrant: {{Lampshaded}} in a save-quit conversation. Apparently, she was always aboard the ''Hagane''...[[FromACertainPointOfView just not on the main bridge, but on the secondary bridge]].
* KindheartedCatLover: Finds them adorable and has a cat-themed coffee mug. She was particularly happy to meet Masaki's familiars in the ''Second Original Generation''.
* SempaiKohai: {{Lampshaded}} in another save-quit conversation between her and Eita

!!Rishu Tougou (Voiced by Masaharu Satou)

An advisor for the Tesla-Leicht Institute and master of the ''Jigen-ryuu'' ("Jigen-style") swordsmanship, Master Rishu Tougou is the teacher to Sanger and Bullet. A good-natured man, when it comes to matters of the sword, Rishu is strict. At his time in Tesla-Leicht, he's provided the motion data for the "[[{{BFS}} Colossal Blade]]" and its development.
[[hardline]]
* AscendedExtra: Is partially available for use in ''2.5: Unified Wisdom'', but is fully playable beginning with ''Original Generation Gaiden''.
* CoolOldGuy: Remember, folks - this is the man who taught Sanger to be a {{Badass}}.
* {{Kiai}}: Just like his pupils, "CHESTO!"
* LightningBruiser: Has the highest skill stat and critical hit rate (the latter augmented by his Ace Bonus) in the ''Second Original Generation'', coupled with a natural "Infight"[[note]]Increase movement range and weapon power for melee-based weapons[[/note]] and "Attack Again"[[note]]Attack a second time if the pilot's skill stat is 20 points higher than the enemy's skill stat[[/note]] pilot skills and the cheapest "Guard" Spirit Command[[note]]Decrease all damage taken for one turn by 75%[[/note]] in the game.
* MasterSwordsman: Current head of ''Jigen-ryuu''
* MythologyGag: His ancestor is Ryuuma Tougou, the pilot of the [=RyuKoOh=] centuries back in the ''[=RyuKoOh=] Denki'' manga.
* RocketPoweredWeapon: The back of the Type-0 Colossal Blade is covered in thrusters.
* ShutUpHannibal: Is prone to this just like Sanger.
* SimpleYetAwesome: The Type-0 lacks the {{Transforming|Mecha}}/CombiningMecha abilities of the later Grungust models, and its built-in weaponry don't consist of more than [[MacrossMissileMassacre missile launchers]], a RocketPunch and a ChestBlaster, yet Rishu {{Lampshades}} on the machine's simplicity.
--> '''Rishu''': "It can swing [[{{BFS}} the sword]]. [[TheAllSolvingHammer That's all it needs to do]]."
* SoLastSeason: Averted; the Type-0 was decommissioned prior to ''Original Generation 2'', but when it makes its return, it's still one of the strongest units in ''Original Generation Gaiden'' all the way towards the ''Second Original Generation''. Justified as the machine is upgraded with technology from its successors (namely "TGC Joints" and a plasma generator) during its absence off-screen.
* SuperPrototype: {{Downplayed|Trope}} and {{Justified|Trope}}; while the Type-0 is one of the strongest units in ''Original Generation Gaiden'' and the ''Second Original Generation'', it had to undergo extensive retrofits and upgrades with current generation technology. In spite of that, the Type-0 lacks most of the capabilities of its succeeding units (see SimpleYetAwesome above). Most of its combat ability comes from the [[{{BFS}} Colossal Blade]] and [[{{Badass}} Rishu's skill with it]].
* SwordCane: Carries one in case of emergencies, [[spoiler:such as when the Inspectors held the Tesla-Leicht Institute hostage]].

!Earth Federation (Others)

[[folder: Earth Federation Officials]]

!!Lee Linjun (Voiced by Ryo Wakabayashi in ''Orignal Generations'', Kousuke Okano in ''The Inspectors'' and the ''Second Original Generation'')
[[quoteright:150:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/199284283514164271.jpg]]
--> ''"...watch me, Tetsuya Onodera! This is my...This is the path Lee Linjun took!"''

A former classmate of Tetsuya's, Lee functions as the semi-EvilCounterpart of Tetsuya in every way imaginable. His mannerisms in combat involve "ByTheBookCop following the book]]", to a point where it becomes painstakingly ridiculous. Lee also holds no care for his subordinates, [[WeHaveReserves seeing them mere pawns that can be easily replaced]]. To that end, he holds a serious grudge against the participants of Operation SRW (which includes almost all of the Steel Dragon Battle Group; Tetsuya gets the brunt of his excuse). The reason? His wife Cynthia and his parents were killed during the Beijing attack by the Aerogators. His result: [[FreudianExcuse blame the heroes, NOT the invaders for his loss]].

Lee makes his debut in ''Original Generation 2'' as captain of the rebuilt ''Shirogane''. During the war with the Neo Divine Crusaders, Lee falls for a downright-obvious trap set by Shadow-Mirror forces, and the ''Shirogane'' is captured. Lee's approached by [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAdvance Vindel Mauser]] and offered a position among their ranks, which he readily accepts. As if he couldn't get any worse, Lee launches a surprise attack on the ''Hagane'' during the battle at the North American Langley Base, though the combined ''Hagane'' and ''Hiryu Custom'' crews escape. When the Inspectors and Shadow-Mirror fall back to the White Star, [[RivalTurnedEvil Lee faces Tetsuya]], now Deputy Captain of the ''Kurogane''. As a last-ditch effort, Lee attempts to ram the ''Kurogane'' with the ''Shirogane''...except he forgets the ''Kurogane'' mounts [[ThisIsADrill A GIANT DRILL]] [[WhatAnIdiot on its bow]]. The ''Shirogane'' is shredded to pieces.

However, ''Original Generations'' {{Retcon}}s the event with the ''Shirogane'' retreating. As much as it's hard to believe Lee can [[NoOneCouldSurviveThat survive a battleship-sized drill to the face]], he returns in the ''Second Original Generation'' working for the Gaia Sabers as captain of their flagship ''Air Christmas'', under the alias "Carly Neuman". His old persona is quickly discovered by the Steel Dragon Battle Group, however.
[[hardline]]
* EarlyBirdCameo: The side-story manga ''Record of ATX'' has Lee cameo as captain of an aircraft carrier during the Battle of Beijing. [[spoiler:He watches helplessly as the city's razed by the Aerogators]].
* {{Expy}}: Lee is practically a mirror of Tempest Hawker from the first game - both men are associates to a party member, motivated by [[spoiler:a dead family member]] and are {{Jerkass}}es. Tempest defected to the Divine Crusaders, though Lee doesn't, despite being antagonistic and a playable character, until he joins the Shadow-Mirror.
* FaceHeelTurn: Although in Lee's case, this may count as a subversion. While not presented as a traditional "[[{{Face}} good guy]]" at the start, by mid-game, he decides to embrace his true villainy.
** HeelFaceTurn: [[spoiler:In the ''Second Original Generation'', when Steinbeck reveals himself to be Euzeth Gozzo and [[YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness damages]] the ''Air Christmas'', Lee pulls this since he [[EvenEvilHasStandards still retains some standards]] by [[RammingAlwaysWorks ramming the battleship]] [[HeroicSacrifice into Euzeth's Adamatron]]]].
* {{Foil}}: Lee amounts to being pretty much this in order to give Tetsuya his CharacterDevelopment.
* {{Hypocrite}}: Lee complains about being late to a rendevous with the ''Hagane'' because the ''Shirogane'' is damaged in one scenario during ''Original Generation 2''. When the former does appear to offer aid, Lee criticizes Daitetsu for being careless. Somehow, his duties as a soldier apparently comes first.
* InformedAbility: There's a reason why the fanbase calls him "a graduate of the dumbass department".
* {{Jerkass}} [[TheNeidermeyer Neidermeyer]]: Lee takes these tropes and cranks it UpToEleven and beyond. One has to wonder if he is solely created just so to be hated to death by players. If the answer's "yes", then Banpresto ''overdid'' it.
* IrrationalHatred: The crux of his character - deep down, Lee's just a grief stricken man who's trying to find a way to come to terms with a very tragic loss in his life, but since he copes with his pain by being a complete and utter '''asshole''' to the {{Player Character}}s, it's hard to feel pity for him, ''especially'' since his sneak attack on the ''Hagane'' during the Langley Base assault [[spoiler:leads to Captain Daitetsu's death]], at which point, any sympathy for him is rendered non-existant.
* NoOneCouldSurviveThat: {{Retcon}}ned by ''Original Generations''; the ''Second Original Generation'' {{Lampshades}} it.
* OutOfFocus: Lee gets less screentime in ''The Inspectors''; in fact, when he is supposed to do a FaceHeelTurn, he ''doesn't'', as if he faded into obscurity...
* RammingAlwaysWorks: Averted; ramming doesn't work when your target has a massive drill at its bow, Mr. Linjun. This man graduated ''summa cum laude'', by the way. [[spoiler:Played straight when ironically, him doing this in the ''Second Original Generation'' is what gives the Steel Dragon Battle Group their victory. It helps the ''Air Christmas'' is ''designed'' [[http://youtu.be/EtttA0UgDvM?t=1m25s to ram into things]]]].
* TheRival: A one-sided case against Tetsuya
* SmugSnake: Banpresto probably want to give him a bit of a sympathy with his back-story, but he's too much of a bastard for any of the fans to care. He still keeps the {{Jerkass}}ery in the ''Second Original Generation'', to the point players find it hard to forgive him, [[spoiler:even after his last minute HeroicSacrifice and RedemptionEqualsDeath]].
* WellIntentionedExtremist: For all his faults (which is, to say, A LOT), Lee truly has genuine concern for protecting the Earth. It's too bad [[HorribleJudgeOfCharacter he tends to pick the wrong factions to serve nearly all the time]] (Neo DC, Shadow-Mirror, Gaia Sabers), mainly because of his {{Pride}} and misplaced dislike towards the heroes (see FreudianExcuse). [[spoiler:He asserts in his last moments the Steel Dragon Battle Group is the real force that could make the Earth invincible]].

!!Brian Midcrid (Voiced by Creator/ShowHayami)

President of the Earth Federation in ''Original Generation 2'', Brian Midcrid is the one who announces the "Tokyo Manifest", a new government decree which will better rearm and strengthen the Earth Federation Army for future incursions against extraterrestrial threats. Unfortunately, his term at office is cut short when he's forced to step down by his detractors for his policies.
[[hardline]]
* DumbIsGood: See below
* PutOnABus: There's no mention of him [[spoiler:after being ousted from office. The games don't confirm whether he's been KilledOffForReal or not. He does appear in the end of ''Original Generation 2'', although his whereabouts are unknown]].

This is so Steinbeck can frame the Battle Group for assassinating the President and taking full command of the Gaia Sabers]].
* WellIntentionedExtremist: Graien believes the Earth requires a more militant government in hopes to combat extraterrestrials, hence why he sees the "Shield of Aegis" decreed by Midcrid as pointless, whereas the "Sword of Harpe" is necessary. [[spoiler:This culminates not only with his faction within the government toppling the current regime under Presdient Midcrid, it ascends him to be next president, ultimately leading towards the creation of the Gaia Sabers by the ''Second Original Generation'']].

!!Nibhal Mubhal (Voiced by Creator/KoujiIshii)
[[hardline]]
* TheReveal: In reality, his allegiance lies with [[spoiler:Arteil Steinbeck]]. However, it's still made unclear whether Nibhal is an Earthling or a HumanAlien.
* WildCard: While Nibhal is still aligned with Graien and his government, most fans tend to believe [[HiddenAgendaVillain he has his own agenda]]. The most popular theory is he's an agent installed by the [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsClassic Zuvorg Alliance]] to keep an eye on humanity's activities, then report back to his superiors. The biggest evidence of this are his secret communications with the Inspectors during ''Original Generation 2''.
* YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness: [[spoiler:Killed and left for dead by Euzeth aboard the ''Air Christmas''; it's suggested by him that [[CorruptBureaucrat Nibhal will likely sell information]] regarding Euzeth to either Mitsuko, the Zuvorg Alliance or a third party. In any case, Euzeth kills Nibhal in order to silence him]].

!!Lieutenant Haruma

An EFA soldier seen in the ''Divine Wars'' animé. He's an instrumental factor in Ryusei's CharacterDevelopment early on.

[[/folder]]

!Antagonists

Even enemies fulfill several tropes. Instead of individual enemies, it will list the groups the Steel Dragon Battle Group opposes.

[[folder: (Neo) Divine Crusaders]]

Based on the [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsClassic same-named faction]] from the "[[FanNickname Classic Timeline]]", the Divine Crusaders ("DC") are an anti-Federation government force led by Bian Zoldark. The genius scientist formed the DC by using the "Extra-Over Technology Institute" as a smoke-screen to hide themselves from TheFederation. Similar to their "Classic" counterparts, Bian declares war on the Federation, rallying his followers and any newcomers to topple the current regime in ''Original Generation'', but with a twist: Bian unveils a meeting in the Antarctic between government representatives and extraterrestrials were meant to ensure the Earth would surrender to alien forces. Naturally, this causes anti-alien sentiments throughout humanity, leading many to enlist in Bian's newly revealed DC, igniting the first "[[CivilWar Divine Crusaders War]]". Unlike the "Classic" Divine Crusaders, the DC of ''Original Generation'' are also assisted by the "United Colony Corps", the primary military force belonging to the space colonies, headed by Bian's close friend Maier von Branstein of the Elpis colony. Bian's insurrection ultimately ends with his death at DC headquarters on Aidoneus Island by the Steel Dragon Battle Group.

After Bian dies, however, the Divine Crusaders undergo changes, due to a combination of the death of many of the organization's higher-ups and severe MotiveDecay from its existing commanders. By the time the L5 Campaign is underway, the DC is scattered and largely leaderless; nevertheless, these small "[[TheRemnant Divine Crusaders Remnants]]" continue their anti-government dissent by waging small skirmishes against the Earth Federation Army. However, Colonel Van Vat Tran manages to unite a majority of the Remnants into the "Neo Divine Crusaders" in ''Original Generation 2'' (''Neue'' Divine Crusaders in the Japanese version) and, [[HereWeGoAgain once again]], the Neo DC attempt to topple the Federation government. While many like Colonel Van are doing it in the belief they are upholding Bian's legacy, others have pettier reasons behind this second Divine Crusaders War. Unfortunately, the Neo DC are rendered powerless again after the disastrous results of "Operation Plantagenet", a joint Earth Federation Army-Neo DC campaign to push the Inspectors away from the planet. By ''Original Generation Gaiden'', many of its members have either left the organization or defected to the Earth Federation Army; only a few pockets of Neo DC regiments remain, commanded by Lorenzo di Montenego.

Notable members of the (Neo) DC in ''Original Generation'' include [[ReasonableAuthorityFigure Colonel Van]], [[AscendedFanboy Tenzan Nakajima]], [[RoaringRampageOfRevenge Tempest Hawker]], [[MadScientist Dr. Adler Koch]], Archibald Grims ([[HeelFaceRevolvingDoor though he eventually strikes on his own]]), Dr. Agilla Setme, [[TheAce Ouka Nagisa]], and Wodan Ymir. A majority of their HumongousMecha used is the "Lion" series, the first "[[AMechByAnyOtherName Armored Module]]" ever developed; its subsequent manufacturing line is then expanded into the "Guarlion" and "Barrelion" series.

Tropes regarding the (Neo) Divine Crusaders:
[[hardline]]
* BlackBox: The technology found inside Meteor-3 not only prompts Bian to establish the Divine Crusaders, but incorporate it into many Earth-based mecha.
* BoringButPractical: InUniverse, the Lion series; the intent to create the Lion was to recycle and reuse the same configuration to that of fighter jets, the easiest to learn for new pilots compared to "Personal Troopers", alongside the Lion being cost-effective for mass-production. The latter point would be a boon to the DC during the first DC War as they are able to churn out as many Lion units as possible, overwhelming Federation military on all fronts.
* {{Fallen Hero}}es: Bian and Tempest; both lost faith in the Earth Federation for different reasons, though moreso on the latter's part, since [[spoiler:his wife and daughter were killed during the "Hope Incident", which the Federation government was responsible for]].
* {{Knight Templar}}s: They're villains with decent goals, at first anyway, who call themselves "[[MeaningfulName Divine Crusaders]]". The "shot down" lines from many of their troops lay this on with a trowel.
* {{Mad Scientist}}s: Adler and Agilla; possibly Bian too, but exactly how "mad" is he when he states the DC is NecessarilyEvil?
* {{Well Intentioned Extremist}}s: Bian, Maier, Van and Lorenzo

!Notable characters belonging to the (Neo) Divine Crusaders (those exclusive to ''Original Generation''):

!!Tenzan Nakajima (Voiced by Yasuhiko Kawazu)
[[quoteright:150:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/201817558304522787.jpg]]
[[IKnowMortalKombat Recruited by the Divine Crusaders for his game-playing skills and talents]] at "Burning PT", an InUniverse MechaGame simulating mecha combat, Tenzan Nakajima drops out of a tournament in ''Original Generation'' to join the faction, allowing Ryusei to win by default (in ''Divine Wars'', Tenzan faces Ryusei in the tournament final and defeats him, becoming champion). Becoming a test pilot for the Lion series, Tenzan is one of the few people in the DC to use all three primary Armored Modules fielded by the Divine Crusaders (Lion, Guarlion and Barrelion). He eventually settles on the Barrelion as his personal unit as he doesn't like how the other two units handle.

Over the course of the Divine Crusaders War, Tenzan becomes a steady rival to Ryusei; unlike the latter, Tenzan [[{{Jerkass}} constantly belittles Ryusei]] and believes the war is a big game and doesn't take into account of his actions. When the Divine Crusaders decide to debut the Valsion Custom, Tenzan is given Unit #3 by Adler. Unfortunately, the GEIM System installed in the machine is far from working capacity, rendering him berserk and distorting his perception of reality further; now he ''really'' believes he's in a real video game. He dies during the Divine Crusaders' final assault on Federation headquarters at Geneva, Switzerland, leaving a serious impression on Ryusei.

Tenzan embodies these tropes:
[[hardline]]
* AceCustom: Has his own personally modified Barrelion, while a briefly-used Guarlion is also [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/guarlion_tenzannakajima_custom.jpg a custom job]], as it lacks the head fin all Guarlions have.
* AxCrazy: When piloting the Valsion Custom [[spoiler:and as Gaza Haganer]]
* BigEater: In ''Divine Wars''; even during his tournament battle with Ryusei, he's eating while effortlessly dodging Ryusei's attacks before [[CurbStompBattle trouncing him]].
* BrainwashedAndCrazy: Variation while piloting the Valsion Custom - Tenzan isn't exactly {{Brainwashed}}; he's just plain crazy. [[spoiler:Played straight when he's resurrected as Gaza]].
* EvilCounterpart: Tenzan's essentially what Ryusei would've turned into had the latter not learned to separate fiction from reality, specifically the harsh consequences of war, and matured as a person.
** Tenzan's personality also mirrors Ryusei's original ''VideoGame/ShinSuperRobotWars'' personality, who was arrogant and a bit of a {{Jerkass}}.
* DieLaughing: [[spoiler:Both times for both deaths in the same game]]
* FatBastard: His portrait gives him the vibes that he's plump or fat.
* KickTheDog: [[spoiler:Reveals to Ryusei that Latooni was a member of The School and brings up how she was essentially Adler's play-experiment. This is enough for Ryusei's BerserkButton to be pressed and gives Tenzan a piece of his mind]].
* KilledOffForReal: [[spoiler:TWICE in one game]]
* TheRival: To Ryusei, which cements his CharacterDevelopment.

A commander in the Divine Crusaders. He was part of Bian's inner circle who knew of Bian's true goal in forming the Divine Crusaders. Lorenzo unites the remnants of the Neo Divine Crusaders to oppose the Federation in ''Original Generation Gaiden'', along with Murata.
[[hardline]]
* CanonImmigrant: Lorenzo made his debut in ''Original Generation Chronicle'', a set of short-stories from Dengeki magazine released prior to ''Original Generations''. His story of [[spoiler:[[GrandTheftPrototype hijacking a Valsion Custom Type-CF]] from Isurugi Industries]] is used in one of the five new scenarios for the game.

He assists Lorenzo in ''Original Generation Gaiden'' in leading the remnants of the Neo Divine Crusaders, and is caught up in the mass summoning during the ''Second Original Generation''. Upon returning to the surface, Murata is hired by the Gaia Sabers and aligns with them.
[[hardline]]
* AceCustom: Guarlion Custom "Mumyou"
* CanonImmigrant: Just like Lorenzo, Murata originated in a short-story from ''Original Generation Chronicle'', tasked with [[spoiler:protecting Lorenzo while he [[GrandTheftPrototype steals a Valsion Custom Type-CF]] from Isurugi Industries]].
* DeceptiveDisciple: Murata merely learned the sword from Master Rishu in order to kill rather than to protect, which ''Jigen-ryuu'' dictates.
* DualWielding: Pairs his own Shishioh Blade and a mecha-sized ''wakizashi'' for his ultimate attack.
* EvilCounterpart: To Master Rishu and his disciples Bullet and Sanger; Murata believes enlightenment can be achieved through carnage with the sword, enabling him to become a "war god"

!!Archibald Grims (Voiced by Creator/TakumiYamazaki)
[[quoteright:150:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/197595433653076642.jpg]]
-->''Oh, so you don't like needless bloodshed, Lt. Jaggar? Well that's too bad. [[EstablishingCharacterMoment I do love needless bloodshed. ESPECIALLY FROM THE INNOCENTS!!]]''

Archibald Grims is a Neo Divine Crusaders commander who debuts in ''Original Generation 2''. His top subordinates are [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAlpha Yuuki Jaggar]] and Ricarla Borgnine, although he briefly serves as commander to Arado and Seolla. Archibald seems like a mild-mannered person with a cunning personality. In reality, he's an AxCrazy PsychoForHire of the Elpis Incident. He set off a poison gas in the docking bay of the Elpis colony [[spoiler:that forced Elzam von Branstein to kill his wife Cattleya in order to save it]]. Archibald takes great pleasure in killing anything he sees, be it innocent or not. This causes some tension between him and those serving under him early on over military strategy, until Archibald defects and joins the Shadow-Mirror, fatally wounding Colonel Van during the surprise attack at the North American Langley Base. During the final showdown in the Earth Cradle, Archibald reveals he was in fact hired by the ''real'' mastermind behind the Elpis Incident from the Extra-Over Technological Investigative Council. This confession, in an attempt to save his own life, horrendously backfires and is killed in a tag-team assault by the Branstein brothers.

Archibald's an interesting character due to the number of {{Mythology Gag}}s surrounding his family name. According to the ''[=RyuKoOh=] Denki'' manga, supposedly set several centuries before ''Original Generation'', Archibald's ancestor Jabez Grims, a member of British royalty, excavates the [=JakuOhKi=] and [=BuOhKi=], two ancient ''Choukijin'' ("Super Mechanical Gods"). However, since Jabez doesn't possess the PsychicPowers allowing humans to control the Choukijin, he uses opium in large amounts to pacify the machines. With these two Choukijin in his possession, Jabez goes on a rampage; fortunately, his actions are stopped by Rishu Tougou's ancestor, Ryuuma. However, Jabez's actions have serious consequences: the Grims family is expelled from the British aristocracy and no longer hold any political power. As such, Archibald takes some measures to secure, and later, stop the revival of the [=RyuOhKi=] and [=KoOhKi=] in ''Original Generation 2'', but fails.

Tropes associated with Archibald are:
[[hardline]]
* AceCustom: "Gravilion", an exclusive towering SuperRobot in ''The Inspectors'' during {{The Federation}}'s re-taking of Riksent, complete with SphereOfDestruction, ChestBlaster and MacrossMissileMassacre.
** The Gravilion is actually a DummiedOut enemy unit from the first ''Original Generation'' game. It was cut because the unit took up too much memory in the GameBoyAdvance cartridge. ''Original Generations'' later discarded the unit because it didn't fit with the design plan for the game (recreate the original GameBoyAdvance games in the Playstation 2 engine).
* ArchEnemy: To the Branstein family
* AxCrazy: He does it ForTheEvulz
%%* CardCarryingVillain
* DieLaughing: His final death, after realizing he cannot eject, which he had managed to do twice before.
* EvilBrit: With an EvilLaugh, no less.
* {{Expy}}: Of [[Characters/MasouKishin Lubbikka Heinken]], though a case can also be made regarding [[LightNovel/FullMetalPanic Gauron]].
* HannibalLecture: Attempts a few of these over the course of ''Original Generation 2''. They all fail miserably.
%%* LennonSpecs
* TheManBehindTheMan: Inverted; Archibald was, in fact, [[spoiler:TheDragon to the real mastermind of the Elpis Incident]].
* NeverHurtAnInnocent: Inverted; Archibald LOVES hurting innocents, it wouldn't surprise anyone if he decides to steal candy from a baby, shoot it, then set it on fire.
* {{Retcon}}: In ''Original Generation 2'', Archibald pilots an Ashsaber given to him by the [[spoiler:Shadow-Mirror during his last stand in the Earth Cradle]]. In ''Original Generations'', he pilots a Giganspada, an AlternateUniverse version from the Shadow-Mirror dimension of the Giganscudo.
* TheSociopath: A textbook example - self-absorbant, arrogant, deceitful, and a thrill-seeker who enjoys nothing more than causing pain to others. It's also his biggest [[FatalFlaw Weakness]], as his inability to understand [[EvilCannotComprehendGood things such as empathy, trust, camaraderie, and other virtues]] tends to undermine his schemes (not helped by his inflated [[SmugSnake arrogance]]). [[spoiler: best shown when the bombs he planed in shelters around Rikset fail to detonate because Yukki [[NotWhatISignedOnFor sabotaged them beforehand]]; Archibald had known that Yukki strongly disproved of his "methods", but failed to realize that his subordinate had the will and resourcefulness to do something about it.]]

!!Ouka Nagisa (Voiced by Creator/MichikoNeya)
[[quoteright:220:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ouka.jpg]]
Once known as "Aurum 1", Ouka is the first of the Boosted Children at The School. During her time there, she befriends three younger children: Bronzo 27 and 28 (Seolla and Arado) and Latooni 11. She's one of the few remaining children after The School was shut down, and stays with researchers Agilla Setme and Cuervo Sero.

Ouka first appears to a surprised Latooni and her teammates, piloting an R-Eins loaned to her by the Shadow-Mirror. She initially believes the Federation has brainwashed Latooni into fighting for them and killing Arado, despite Latooni's objections that Arado's alive and that she's fighting of her own will. After discovering that Arado is not dead, Agilla decides to alter Ouka (and Seolla's) memories to make them believe Arado is dead. After the memory alterations, Ouka is given the Rapiecage, a SuperPrototype from the Shadow-Mirror based off of mecha from Project ATX. During the Rapiecage's first sortie, Ouka reveals it's equipped with a newer model of Alder Koch's GEIM System. Unlike previous GEIM System users, Ouka's able to resist the berserker side-effects of the system and maintain control over herself.

Tropes associated with Ouka are:
[[hardline]]
* {{BFG}}: Rapiecage's "Over Oxtongue Launcher"
%%* BrainwashedAndCrazy
* CaptainErsatz: Meta-example - the Rapiecage (especially the "Rapiecage Fantome" from ''The Inspector'') has the same design philosophy and naming scheme as the Flickerei Geist. In-universe, it's inverted; similarly, it's also built on the same concept as the [[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsAlpha Astranagant]] - emulating technology or out-right stealing it from the heroic factions.
* CoolBigSis: Doubles as the OneeSama, given that's how her siblings address her.
* DeadlyUpgrade: Implied in ''The Inspectors''; [[spoiler:even though Ouka is conditioned to use the GEIM System better, some side-effects hazardous to her health is evident during the Earth Cradle event, hence why she chooses HeroicSacrifice to destroy Agilla]].
* {{Leitmotif}}: ''Ouka Genei'' ("Cherry Blossom Illusion")
* MeaningfulName: Rapiecage means "patchwork" in French. The machine was created from combat data taken from the Alt Eisen, Weiss Ritter, Wild Wurger and Wild Falken. This is shown in the arsenal the mecha carries. Its system is derived from the Ashsaber (and its production number classifies it as an "[[AMechByAnyOtherName Assault Dragoon]]"), but built with modified parts from the "Valkyrie" series to make it more durable.
* SuperPrototype: In terms of being the eldest of The School children and getting the neato Rapiecage.
* ThemeNaming: "Aurum" means "gold" in Latin, hence why Ouka is the eldest and strongest of the Boosted Children.

!Wodan Ymir (Voiced by Creator/KenichiOno)
[[quoteright:150:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/200691658397713382.jpg]]

A new member of the [[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsAdvance Shadow-Mirror]] created for ''Original Generation'', Wodan Ymir's occasionally sent out by his superiors to antagonize the heroes, namely to impede their progress in quelling the Neo Divine Crusaders. Quiet, calm and exceptionally loyal, Wodan's initially mistaken for Sanger by the cast, who believes he's been BrainwashedAndCrazy by the Neo DC into joining them. When the real Sanger appears during Operation Plantagenet, Wodan develops a strong rivalry with the {{samurai}}, making it personal to be the only one to defeat him.

In reality, Wodan is an android based on the AlternateUniverse Sanger who was killed in action in the Shadow-Mirror dimension (most theories hint it was [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAdvance Vindel Mauser]] who landed the blow). His body was recovered and given to Lemon Browning to be resurrected as one of the W-Numbers to be a countermeasure against the Beowulves squadron of TheFederation. His identification is W-15 and unlike other W-Numbers, Wodan was simply modified into a {{cyborg}}, rather than being built from the ground-up. As a result, his personality's somewhat unstable; to keep him in line, Lemon has Wodan link with the Earth Cradle's supercomputer "Magus Gebo" and becomes its loyal guardian, a ContinuityNod to the ''[[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsAlpha Alpha Gaiden]]'' Sanger, the main difference being [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAlpha Sophia Nate]] having been built into Magus' core in ''Original Generation 2'' by [[MadScientist Egret Feff]].

During Operation Planetagent, Wodan appears at the Tesla-Liecht Institute and stops the [[QuirkyMinibossSquad Inspector]] [[VideoGame/SuperRobotWars3 Vigagi]] from killing Sanger, cementing their rivalry. Wodan not only buys Sanger time to get his new Dygenguard working, but [[GiveMeASword recovers the Type-3 Colossal Blade]] for Sanger to use (in ''Alpha 2'', that role was handled by Ratsel). Afterwards, Wodan's reassigned to the Earth Cradle to protect it from the ''Kurogane'' and faces Sanger outside the facility for their ulimate duel. The sheer force from their respective attacks managed to destroy the outer shell (designed to withstand ''nuclear explosions'', for the record) and cause the Earth Cradle to cave in. Unfortunately, the attack (and subsequent fall) severely crippled Wodan. At that moment, Egret orders Magus to restore the Thrudgelmir, but Wodan refuses, admitting he has lost to Sanger and tells him Sophia is now Sanger's responsibility. Wodan launches a final, killing blow on Feff and the remaining Machinery Children, but the over-damaged Thrudgelmir explodes, destroying Wodan.

Wodan is modeled after the ''Alpha Gaiden'' version of Sanger and pilots the monstrous Thrudgelmir, a Grungust Type-3 from the Shadow-Mirror world modified in the Original Generation universe by Machine Cells. Considering who Wodan's based off of, he embodies similar tropes, but to avoid redundancy, the following are either exclusive to Wodan or ones significantly changed:
[[hardline]]
%%* BecomeARealBoy
* {{BFS}}: Comes in two forms for the Thrudgelmir's Colossal Blade - a solid-based, two-handed broadsword version or a PureEnergy-emitting PillarOfLight version that seemingly extends to infinity.
* TheBrute: Out of the Shadow-Mirror FiveManBand in ''Original Generation'', though Wodan subverts the usual personality, as he's rather intelligent and calculating.
* ContinuityNod: Wodan's introduction on the Space Route of ''Original Generation 2''. [[spoiler:He attacks Tasuku and injures him. Sanger did the exact same thing when he announced [[FaceHeelTurn he has sided with the Divine Crusaders]] in ''Original Generation'']].
* EvilTwin: Of Sanger, though Wodan ''technically'' was never evil to begin with. [[spoiler:He does get his own EvilTwin [[Characters/EndlessFrontier W-05]], the BigBad of ''Endless Frontier EXCEED''. Essentially, Sanger's got one not-so-EvilTwin and one ''actual'' EvilTwin]].
* HealingFactor, GoodThingYouCanHeal: Courtesy of [[spoiler:Machine Cells]]
* InTheNameOfTheMoon: I am Wodan. ''Wodan Ymir! '''THE SWORD OF MAGUS!!'''''"
* MythologyGag: Wodan is this, in a nutshell. Not only [[spoiler:is his default SuperRobot Sanger's first machine, but his outfit's exactly the same as his in ''Alpha Gaiden'' ([[MaskPoweraside from the mask]])]]. To top it off, [[spoiler:Wodan's {{Leitmotif}} is Sanger's first {{Leitmotif}}, "The Gate of Magus"]]. Long story short, [[spoiler:he's basically an excuse to have both an ''Alpha Gaiden'' Sanger and ''Alpha 2''[=/=]''Original Generation'' Sanger in the same game]].
** In ''Original Generations'', the Thrudgelmir gains a few gags of its own. Two attacks added to its arsenal [[spoiler:were previously used by Sanger in the ''Alpha'' side-story manga "Steel Messiah"]]. While the "Drill Inferno" didn't change, the ''Hoshinagi no Tachi'' ("Slicing Sword of the Cosmos") gets slightly altered: [[spoiler:in "Steel Messiah", the attack has the Thrudgelmir spin in a circle with the Colossal Blade still solid]]; in ''Original Generations'', it's executed like the ''Ichimonji Giri'', except the blade's etheral and rips apart the landscape while swallowing its target whole.
* TheRival, ultimately leading to TheOnlyOneAllowedToDefeatYou: To Sanger
%%* TakingYouWithMe: Does this to Egret.
* ThisIsADrill: Thrudgelmir's Drill Inferno and "[[RocketPunch Drill Boost Knuckle]]"

[[folder: ODE System]]

Making its debut in the 3-episode OVA ''The Animation'' and reappearing in ''Original Generation Gaiden'', the ODE (Omni Dendro Encephalon) System was created by Professor Wilhelm V. Jürgen, a former member of the Extra-Over Technological Institute. The system was intended to network a new "GESTALT" ([[FunWithAcronyms Global Expanded Stamp out Tactics works ALTogether]]) line of mobile weapons, rolled out by Wong Heavy Industries as the VTX-001 Bartoll. When the Aerogaters invaded and Jürgen's wife and child were killed in the attacks, he drastically redesigned the system to rely on capturing humans as a biological core to derive data. He rationalizes that if the rest of the world were [[AssimilationPlot united as a single consciousness, future conflicts with extraterrestrials would spare the pain of people losing their loved ones]].

In the OVA, Jürgen uses his own body to act as the living core of the mainframe for the ODE System, installed inside a single Bartoll. The system, completely fused with Jürgen's consciousness, slowly assimilates other people into its collective, eventually leading the mass-production machines in subjugating all of humanity. However, the Earth Federation Army successfully locates Jürgen in the abandoned Hellgate Facility and disconnects his uplink with the system. Jürgen dies in the assault, but not before the ODE System releases a stream of data, sending it into the far corners of space.

In ''Original Generations'', before the Aerogaters arrived, funding for the ODE System is halted by Adler Koch, after he assumes command of the Divine Crusaders. By ''Original Generation Gaiden'', Jürgen has relocated to Wong Heavy Industries to complete the system. Rather than act individually in his quest to unite humanity, he acquires the helping hand of Kyle Bean and Selcia Farm and instead of a Bartoll, Jürgen uses a Valsion Custom Type-CF. Similar events from the OVA follows suit, but Jürgen seemingly destroys Lamia, after she is rescued by Kyosuke at the Hellgate Facility. This was enough for Lamia's allies to put an end to Jürgen.

Tropes regarding the ODE System and Jürgen include:
[[hardline]]
* AIIsACrapShoot
** StupidEvil: A system supposedly protecting humanity forces people to ''give up'' their humanity; where's the logic in that?
* AllYourBaseAreBelongToUs: Biggest modus operandi, which leads to...
** AssimilationPlot, YouWillBeAssimilated
* BigBadWannabe: "[[spoiler:Yay, I killed Lamia!...Wait a minute, what!? Duminuss killed me just after that!? And I even failed to completely kill Lamia after all!?]]"
* CaptainErsatz: One can argue the ODE System is really a cybernetic take on the [[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion Human Instrumentality Project]].
* EasilyForgiven: This is the Earth Federation Army we're talking about - one of their closest comrades was seemingly KilledOffForReal and their reaction is mostly "Poor Juergen, he's no longer himself?" Compared to what they said to Archibald...

!Beowulf (Voiced by Creator/ToshiyukiMorikawa)
[[quoteright:300:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/srw-beowulf_290.jpg]]
[[caption-width-right:300:This is what happens when you're at the far end of the "grumpy" spectrum.]]
Kyosuke Nanbu of the Shadow-Mirror AlternateUniverse and captain of the "Beowulves" Gespenst squadron, under the designation "[[RedBaron Beowulf]]". According to Axel Almer, who used to fight alongside him in TheFederation, Beowulf was identical to the current Kyosuke Nanbu of the Original Generation universe and shared many personality traits (unwavering determination, stoicism, leadership qualities, etc.), except somewhere along the line, he went AxCrazy, rambling on about world destruction and its rebirth. This is what led to Axel defecting and joining the Shadow-Mirror, and the rivalry between him and his former comrade.

As the Shadow-Mirror were ready to jump to another dimension, Axel was left to fend the Beowulves off at the Tesla-Leicht Institute. While the GameBoyAdvance version of ''Original Generation 2'' told little of Axel's fight, the ''Endless Frontier'' drama CD and subsequent ''The Inspectors'' tells us Axel manages to wipe out the Beowulves singlehandedly and face the mad Beowulf. Although Axel comes out the loser, he [[VictoriousLoser announces his victory for having stalled enough time for his allies to escape to the other side]]. This leaves Beowulf screaming in rage of his defeat, despite having beaten Axel.

Beowulf pilots a machine similar to Kyosuke's Alt Eisen, but given a blue color scheme. While this machine is never given the Alt Eisen codename, it is actually ''accepted'' as the successor to the Gespenst MK II M, and receives the proper "Gespenst MK III" designation. However, there are hints that there is more to the mech than meets the eye.

Tropes associated with Beowulf are:
[[hardline]]
* AscendedExtra: In a sense. Prior to {{Retcon}}, we are told he was Kyosuke's AlternateUniverse counterpart. ''Original Generations'' hinted at the sadistic, omnicidal personality and had him play a central role in the back-story of the Shadow-Mirror (particularly Axel). Since then, he's had expanded roles in the ''Endless Frontier'' drama CD and ''The Inspectors''. [[WildMassGuessing Some have speculated he may become a future, prominent villain]].
* AxCrazy: He's just as focused and determined as Kyosuke is, but unlike his counterpart, he has a constant, creepy PsychoticSmirk in lieu of a [[DeterminedExpression poker face]]. Also, unlike other examples of this trope, Beowulf has a motive that drives him to be like this.
** According to Lamia in ''The Inspectors'', there were rumors that he had a habit of killing his allies during combat.
* TheCaptain: Holds the rank in the Beowulves
* TheDreaded: It's implied Beowulf is ''inhumanly'' powerful, and rumored to possess abilities that are almost demonic in nature. While the validity of this has yet to be confirmed, there's something about the man that's clearly wrong.
* EvilTwin: Of Kyosuke
* TheGhost: Kinda. While he had an expanded role in ''The Inspector'', canonically he's only made one appearance in the games. Most of what is known about him comes from the Shadow-Mirror faction, and even they didn't know much about him. His association with the Einst has never been canonically confirmed either, but it is ''heavily'' implied.
* [[spoiler: HijackedByGanon: In ''The Inspector''.]]
* KineticWeaponsAreJustBetter: Even before the MK III [[spoiler:goes OneWingedAngel]], the machine singlehandedly destroyed the SRX Team in ''The Inspectors'', practically a CurbStompBattle.
* NotBrainwashed: [[spoiler:Unlike Excellen, Beowulf's been completely assimilated by the Einst]].
* OmnicidalManiac: His motive
* OneWingedAngel: [[spoiler:The MK III loses its right arm, restores it, and turns itself into a monstrosity, growing into SuperRobot proportions during the fight against Axel in ''The Inspectors''. Beowulf himself gets RedEyesTakeWarning and a nifty ChestBlaster for the mutated MK III]].
* PsychoticSmirk: [[http://gallery.gt-forum.com/d/5716-1/Beowulf.jpg Rather disturbing]] to see [[TheStoic Kyosuke]] with one of these.
* RealRobot: Subverted; the MK III may look like a PaletteSwap of the Alt Eisen, but it has a power output greater than super robots and has an untold ability of regenerate lost limbs.
* RedEyesTakeWarning: The Gespenst MK III has red eyes instead of the usual green.
* {{Retcon}}: The GameBoyAdvance version of ''Original Generation 2'' suggests Beowulf is as heroic as the Kyosuke players know, and that Axel simply hates him because Beowulf always beats him. ''Original Generations'' does a rewrite, indicating he's far more sadistic than meets the eye, justifying the rivalry between him and Axel. TheReveal in the drama CD and his appearance in ''The Inspectors'' turns him into a literal monster.
* TrueFinalBoss: In [[spoiler:''The Inspectors'']] and the ROMHack ''Original Generation 2'' Custom

[[folder: Gaia Sabers]]

The main antagonists of the ''Second Original Generation'', the Gaia Sabers (or "GS", for short) are a hand-picked military group administered by President Graien Grusman after ''Original Generation Gaiden'' to be the first and last line of defense against extraterrestrials in protecting the Earth.

Tropes common to the entire faction are:

* CaptainErsatz: The [=SRW=] equivalent of the [[Anime/MobileSuitZetaGundam Titans]]
* MythologyGag: The name of the faction is partially based on the same-named Banpresto developed game "Gaia Saver". {{Lampshaded}} by [[Characters/MasouKishin Mio Sasuga]] while LeaningOnTheFourthWall [[spoiler:prior to Shu revealing that he managed to understand and use the naked singularity and black hole theory]]:
-->'''Mio''': Gaia Sabers? "The Hero's Greatest Strategy" guys?
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: Despite the title "Gaia Saviour" in the prologue of the ''Second Original Generation'', Steinbeck makes it clear word-for-word (in English text, no less) the organization is called "Gaia ''Sabers''".

!!Duvan Org (Voiced by Creator/KosukeToriumi)

Antagonist of ''Real Robot Regiment'', Duvan is "Subject Double Zero" of the ArtificialHuman-based "Idealants Project" created by Dr. Ozunu. Duvan destroys Ozunu's lab and mortally wounds his creator after learning of the limited mortality given to the Idealants. To that end, he steals the Alles Geist and plans to harness the power of the [[Anime/MobileFighterGGundam Ultimate Gundam]] to break his "flaw" and intends to conquer mankind and rule them as their leader, [[{{Ubermensch}} believing it is his destiny as an idealized superior being to humans]]. Unlike his "sister" Ariel, who had experiences to expand her emotional aspects with the Preventers, Duvan never understood there are other means to live. He stubbornly continues to fight against Ariel and her allies, ultimately winding down to a final battle against her.

Duvan appears in the ''Second Original Generation'' in a similar role to his original counterpart. When told by Eric Wong of his remaining time left, Duvan tags along with [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsMX Eldy Mitte]] to Antarctica with hopes to use the Cross Gate Paradigm System to solve his mortality problem. In the ''Moon Dwellers'', a machine called the "Endlich Geist" appears, an apparent upgrade to the Alles Geist.

!!Amara Barton (Voiced by Creator/HarunaIkezawa)

Making her debut in the ''Second Original Generation'', Amara Barton is a member of the Gaia Sabers who answers directly to Steinbeck, serving as his "Omega Saber". In her first appearance, Amara heads to a Mao Industries factory in France with an custom, unidentified Huckebein and destroys all existing Huckebeins models in the world, stealing the Tronium Engine in the MK III and the Black Hole Engine in the 009, before fleeing.

[[folder: Garden Of Baral]]
Loosely based on the same-named faction from the ''Alpha'' series, these people are behind the ''Youkijin'' ("Evil Mechanical Gods") for the ''Second Original Generation''. Their stated goal is the ascension of the human race into immortals, free from pain and suffering, but not all humans are compatible with the ritual, thus millions will die in the process. Needless to say, their methodology can be a little extreme. Stationed in the Garden of Baral, located somewhere in the Middle East, the faction controls the last two "God-class" Choukijin [=JakuOhKi=] and [=BuOhKi=], as well as the last two survivors of the "Evil-class" and all members of the "Spirit-class" (although only one is seen). Aside from Kanan and Taihou, [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAlpha Kukuru]] is a member of this group, as well as [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAlpha Son Ganlong]].

[[EarlyBirdCameo This faction was in fact first seen]] in ''Original Generation Gaiden'', in the middle of the Shura invasion, when strange creatures called the ''Youjin'' ("Evil Gods") began to sporadically appear and attacked the [=RyuKoOh=]. They began taking a more active stance in the ''Second Original Generation''.

!!Jun Kanan (Voiced by Ryoko Nagata)

One of a pair of Chinese Immortals, Kanan was present during the first "Kijin Wars" ("War of the Mechanical Gods") and helped bring the [=TouTetsuOh=] and [=KyuKiOh=] back under Baral's control. Although a bit extreme, she genuinely cares about humanity, comparing it it to a child that needs guidance.

Surrender the [=RyuJinKi=] or watch helplessly as Bullet dies with the [=KoOhKi=] and the [=TouTetsuOh=] devours many innocent soldiers in a gruesome manner. [[spoiler:Kusuha only manages to get out of the situation thanks to the psychic interruption by [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAlpha Irui Gan Eden]], alongside Bullet being able to break the [=KoOhKi=]'s brainwashing and reforming the [=RyuKoOh=]/[=KoRyuOh=]]].

The [=KyuKiOh=] excels in speed and has the greatest appetite of all the "Evil-class", while the [=TouTetsuOh=] can take more hits and is responsible for the death of Kukuru's parents back in ancient times.

A long time ago they and their brothers (along with the "Sin-class" and all lesser Choukijin) broke off from the Garden of Baral and started the Kijin Wars, which gravely took its toll on Baral's sphere of influence in the world. It was in this war that the ''Four Calamities'' were renamed as the ''Four Evils'', the ''Four Punishments'' became the ''Four Sins'', and all classless Choukijin became the Youkijin.

[[folder:The
Walking Spoilers]]

Due to the nature of the following character(s), spoilers are unmarked to avoid redundancy.

!!Arteil Steinbeck/[[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAlpha Euzeth Gozzo]] (Voiced by Creator/KenjiNomura)

The leader of the Gaia Sabers, who works as a sponsor behind the "[[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsMX Tsentr Project]]", Steinbeck was loosely mentioned in ''Original Generation Gaiden'' before appearing in the ''Second Original Generation''. Usually seen aboard the ''Air Christmas'', he orders his underling Amara to destroy the remaining Huckebeins and steal the Black Hole Engine and Tronium Engine. Following the orchestrated death of President Grusman, Steinbeck declares his absolute authority over the Earth's military, who must answer to the Gaia Sabers, with the Steel Dragon Battle Group being the only ones opposing him.

Because of Steinbeck's true identity, the following tropes are exclusive to him:
[[hardline]]
* AmnesiacDissonance: While he is by no means a benevolent person, Steinbeck doesn't truly become the BiggerBad until he regains his memories as Euzeth Gozzo.
* BeamSpam: Adamatron's "Eden Gelsh"
* CompositeCharacter: [[http://i.imgur.com/c468S.jpg Adamatron]]; it's hard to remotely say what it exactly is, even though it's an amalgamation of the [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsMX AI-1]] and the [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAlpha Nashim Gan Eden]].
* {{Expy}}: An incredibly clever one that doubles as a MythologyGag character. Unless you've played ''Super Hero Sakusen'', you'll likely not get the reference.
* GoMadFromTheRevelation: Adamatron's strongest attack "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X-5MT6EQ3vQ Elyon Yada Domar]]" bombards its target with so much forbidden knowledge that it makes them go insane. May double as a form of MindRape.
* {{Leitmotif}}: "Ultra One", which is another MythologyGag, as Euzeth's first appearance in ''Super Hero Sakusen'' was him attempting to harness the powers of Series/{{Ultraman}}.
* MeaningfulName: Adamatron is derived from "Adam" and "Metatron". Keeping in line with the ThemeNaming of the Ze Balmary Empire, Adam was the first man created by God and Metatron is Enoch, a descendent of Adam, who became an archangel.
** Likewise, to keep the YiddishAsASecondLanguage, all of the Adamatron's attacks are in Hebrew:
*** Eden Gelsh = "the fall of Eden"
*** "Yidoni Zaam Kara"
*** Elyon Yeda Doma = "to praise God Most High"
* TreacherousAdvisor: If Graien is the CaptainErsatz of [[Anime/MobileSuitZetaGundam Jamitov Hymem]], then Arteil would be [[Anime/MobileSuitZetaGundam Paptimus Scirocco]]. Like the latter, Arteil sets up Graien to die so he can commandeer control of the Gaia Sabers.
%%* VillainousBreakdown
%%* YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness
* YouWillBeAssimilated: Uses the AI-1 to assimilate the Nashim Gan Eden (and Irui by proxy) and Ing Egret to form the Adamatron and regain his memories. He also assimilates Amara and the Galilnagant.

Based on the
[[Characters/SuperRobotWarsClassic same-named faction faction]] from the "Classic Timeline"]], "[[FanNickname Classic Timeline]]", the Divine Crusaders ("DC") are built an anti-Federation government force led by Bian Zoldark, a Zoldark. The genius scientist formed the DC by using the "Extra-Over Technology Institute" as a smoke-screen to hide themselves from TheFederation. Similar to their "Classic" counterparts, Bian declares war on the Federation, rallying his followers and father any newcomers to topple the current regime in ''Original Generation'', but with a twist: Bian unveils a meeting in the Antarctic between government representatives and extraterrestrials were meant to ensure the Earth would surrender to alien forces. Naturally, this causes anti-alien sentiments throughout humanity, leading many to enlist in Bian's newly revealed DC, igniting the first "[[CivilWar Divine Crusaders War]]". Unlike the "Classic" Divine Crusaders, the DC of [[Characters/MasouKishin Lune Zoldark]], ''Original Generation'' are also assisted by Shu Shirakawa. the "United Colony Corps", the primary military force belonging to the space colonies, headed by Bian's close friend Maier von Branstein of the Elpis colony. Bian's insurrection ultimately ends with his death at DC headquarters on Aidoneus Island by the Steel Dragon Battle Group.

After Bian dies, however, the group undergoes Divine Crusaders undergo changes, due to a combination of the death of many of the organization's higher-ups and severe MotiveDecay from its existing commanders. By the time the L5 Campaign is underway, the DC is scattered and forms largely leaderless; nevertheless, these small "[[TheRemnant Divine Crusaders Remnants]]" continue their anti-government dissent by waging small skirmishes against the Earth Federation Army. However, Colonel Van Vat Tran manages to unite a majority of the Remnants into the "Neo Divine Crusaders" in ''Original Generation 2'' (''Neue'' Divine Crusaders in the Japanese version), which try version) and, [[HereWeGoAgain once again]], the Neo DC attempt to topple the current government time Federation government. While many like Colonel Van are doing it in the belief they are upholding Bian's legacy, others have pettier reasons behind this second Divine Crusaders War.
