Male protagonist of ''Super Robot Wars Reversal'', Raul Gureden is a test pilot of the Excellence machine installed with the Time Flow Engine. He is partnered with WrenchWench Mizuho Saiki and good friends with the energy {{otaku}} Raji Montoya. His story differs depending on {{Continuity}}.

In ''Reversal'', Raul lives in a CrapsackWorld where events like ''Anime/MobileSuitGundamCharsCounterattack'' or ''[[Anime/MartianSuccessorNadesico Martian Successor Nadesico: Prince of Darkness]]'' is on the air. Trying to promote the Time Flow Engine, he enlists him and his team to the [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamZZ Nahel Argama]] or [[Anime/MartianSuccessorNadesico Nadesico]], but at one point meets the enigmatic Duminuss, who wants the Engine for its own purposes. Attacking Raul and his team, the Engine is damaged enough that it opens a wormhole, transporting them to the past, but before the events that occurred which turned their world into a crapsack one. After doubting that any changes will preserve the future, Raul declares that ''maybe'' a TemporalParadox won't hurt, if it's to fix the BadFuture, thus works with the "[[BadassArmy Round Knights]]" to ensure events will not trigger to cause the worst outcome. Duminuss continues to target him and the Engine, but its death throws Raul and his company back to their time, now brighter and sunnier because of his efforts to fix the past.

Six months later in ''Original Generation Gaiden'', during a clash between [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsOriginalGeneration Kouta Azuma]] and his BrainwashedAndCrazy sister [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsOriginalGeneration Shouko Azuma]] as "Dark Emi", the energies from the Compatible Kaiser and G-Thundergate trigger a wormhole with Fiona and her Excellence coming out from it. While Raul catches up Fiona with current events, Duminuss kidnaps Raji and Mizuho. In response, he and Fiona take their machines to battle the creature and rescue them both, [[spoiler:alongside saving Duminuss' surviving homunculus Despinis]]. Raul's story ends with him dismantling the Excellence, citing the Time Flow Engine is too dangerous and something like Duminuss will come again with hopes to seize the Engine and misuse it. Opting to open a junkyard/mechanic shop called "L&E Corporation" [[spoiler:and taking in Despinis as a family member]], Raul continues to become a test pilot for Mizuho's new rescue-oriented robotics. Despite not actively taking to the battlefield again, Raul continues to help the Earth Federation Army in the ''Second Original Generation''.

Which machine does he pilot? The Excellence, of course, with a full set of frames, changeable to adapt to any situation/terrain. In either continuity, after Mizuho and Raji are captured by Duminuss, Raul acquires the {{super robot|Genre}} Excellence "Lightning" as a final upgrade. For the ''Second Original Generation'', despite having dismantled the Excellence, Raul returns with the new Excellence "Rescue". Raul embodies these tropes:

* DemotedToExtra: The Excellence team goes through 2nd OG as a support unit, albeit a pretty damned good one.

The heroine of ''Reversal'', Fiona starts as Raul's DistaffCounterpart, meaning her story's the same as his in ''Reversal'', yet they cannot coexist together. In other words, don't expect Fiona to be into GirlsLove, since she has a steady relationship with Raji, where she believes her status as a test pilot hinders his research with the Time Flow Engine. ''Original Generation'' turns her into a [[HalfIdenticalTwins younger twin sister]] and unlike Raul who [[StraightMan takes his business seriously]], Fiona's [[TheTease much more laid back and teasing]] and likes to remind Raul she's his younger sister, despite him claiming it shouldn't make any difference, since they're... well, you know... twins.

Her story starts out the same as Raul in ''Original Generation 2'', but after being thrown into the dimensional gate, Fiona vanishes and isn't seen again. Come ''Original Generation Gaiden'', when the clash between the Compatible Kaiser's Overgate Engine and the G-Thundergate opens up a wormhole, out pops Fiona, starving and still injured from taking the attack meant for Raul by Duminuss. Thanks to the interference of Axel [[spoiler:and [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsCompact2 Einst Alfimi]]]], Raul hauls her for medical attention aboard the ''Kurogane''. After being caught up with the fact she's in an AlternateDimension and learning Raji and Mizuho are kidnapped by Duminuss, Fiona takes to the battlefield to assault Duminuss and continue to be at her brother's side. With Duminuss defeated, Fiona dismantles her Excellence, agreeing the Time Flow Engine is still yet an unstable piece of technology, and opens the "L&E Corporation" (named by her after the Lightning and Eternal frames) with Raul as another test pilot for Mizuho, although [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsOriginalGeneration Dr. Marion Radom]] states she wants to build something for Fiona that's better than the Excellence.

** Technically subverted, because she doesn't do this pose while doing her HeroicSacrifice: she pulls it out after surviving all those hijinx with the Eternal frame. A case can also be made that the Final Grand Cross is a ShoutOut to Anime/DetonatorOrgun's "Grand Cross" attack.

Raul's scientist buddy who created the Time Flow Engine, Raji's an {{Otaku}} about energy sources and usually accompanies Raul in his endeavors, but in case you're playing Fiona's scenario in ''Reversal'', he's her love interest and a big source of Fiona's {{Wangst}}. In either continuity, he's kidnapped with Mizuho to create a new Time Flow Engine for Duminuss, but sabotages it at the last second to give Raul/Fiona a chance. Exclusively for ''Original Generation'', he becomes a sub-pilot for Raul's Excellence Lightning. At the end of ''Original Generation Gaiden'', when Raul and Fiona decide to dismantle their Excellences, Raji doesn't entirely abandon his continuing research to the Time Flow Engine, but he does intend to one day discover the Engine's true properties.

* AscendedExtra: Promoted from a non-playable side-character in ''Reversal'' to a sub-pilot in ''Original Generation''.
* HeroicSecondWind: Of sorts; basically, when Duminuss appears for the near-last time in ''Reversal'', it's really joyous that not even the Round Knights can stop it from getting what it wants. Suddenly, Raji makes his "malfunction" on the second Time Flow Engine work, Duminuss gets horribly wounded and the tables are turned to the Round Knights' favor.
* StoicSpectacles
* {{Otaku}}, NoFourthWall: In one intermission save dialogue, he tries to ''disassemble your PlayStation2'' just to understand how the energy source is!

The other friend of Raul, more specifically his girlfriend ([[SheIsNotMyGirlfriend or not, as he insists]]), Mizuho's responsible for the creation of the Excellence machines and their various frames, built on the basis that her parents died after a disaster and she wanted to create a rescue-based unit. The irony is because of the demand in their world, she winds up arming the Excellence instead. Unfortunately for players, if Fiona's the main character for ''Reversal'', don't expect any LesYay. Usually seen next with Raji as a pair developing the Excellence, in either continuity, she's kidnapped with him by Duminuss. Exclusively for ''Original Generation'', she becomes a sub-pilot for Fiona's Excellence Eternal.

* WouldntHurtAChild: Played with in ''Reversal''; Duminuss created the homunculi as children believing people will hesitate to fight a child. Averted when they sacrifice their "mind" to heal their badly injured master, forcing the player to kill them.

* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Pink for Tis, deep blue for Despinis



Duminuss is the mysterious entity in ''Reversal'' who claims it killed its creator (it could possibly be a ''she'' because of its voice actor in ''Original Generation'', but due to the lack of a specific gender, we'll simply designate Duminuss "genderless") and wonders about its purpose and attempts to find the answer. When Duminuss stumbles upon the Time Flow Engine, it tries to seize that with hopes to return to a point in the past and ask its creator about its purpose. Throughout ''Reversal'', Duminuss is assisted by three homunculi it created.

In ''Original Generations'', Duminuss makes its appearance in the Shadow-Mirror universe and heads an attack on the Gureden siblings, unknowingly damaging Fiona's Excellence and its Time Flow Engine. The next time it appears is in ''Original Generation Gaiden'', where-in Duminuss destroys [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsOriginalGeneration Wilhelm von Juergen]] and commandeers the ODE System for its use. In this setting, Duminuss has acquired the "Emi Armor" and G-Thundergate, and forms an uneasy alliance with the [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsCompact3 Shura]]. As help for revealing the inner workings of the Swordian Fortress, Duminuss demands they kidnap Shouko Azuma, brainwashing her to become Dark Emi via the Emi Armor and use the G-Thundergate to antagonize Fighter Roar, Kouta's HenshinHero alter-ego. All this is so Duminuss can gather parts of the "Twelve Keys" to summon its master [[spoiler:[[Characters/CompatiHeroseries Dark Brain]]]] into this dimension.

Unfortunately, due to multiple circumstance, the Emi Armor and G-Thundergate are seized by Kouta and his allies from the Earth Federation Army, forcing Duminuss to call its master. However, [[spoiler:Dark Brain]] deems Duminuss a failure for having lost the Emi Armor and G-Thundergate to his nemesis and destroys Duminuss after successfully summoning it..

Duminuss has three forms to fight you: "Proton", "Deutron" and "Triton". ''Original Generation Gaiden'' tosses out the Deutron form and has Duminuss transform into Triton form after [[spoiler:forcibly absorbing Tis and Laliar against their will]]. Tropes associated with Duminuss:

Tropes associated with Duminuss:



* AntiVillain BigBad: ''Reversal'' version; many REALLY got too touched with the homunculi's heart-wrenching HeroicSacrifice to the point one has to wonder "THIS is the ''BigBad'' of the game?". Some players went to the extremes and were unable to finish ''Reversal'' because they just can't bear to see the event go in vain. ''Original Generation Gaiden'' [[AvertedTrope threw all of this out the window]], though.
* BackFromTheDead, CameBackWrong: It'd use these as a mean to antagonize the heroes by reviving two supposedly dead characters. In ''Reversal'', it's [[spoiler:[[Anime/MobileFighterGGundam Master Asia]]]]; in ''Original Generation'', it's [[spoiler:[[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAdvance Lamia Loveless]]]] (though more of a case of salvaging a NotQuiteDead person).
* BetaTestBaddie: Implied in ''Original Generation Gaiden'' by [[spoiler:Dark Brain, who calls Duminuss correctly as "Dynamis 3", that Duminuss is but one of many other {{Beta Test Baddie}}s in the multiverse created and sent out to seek the Twelve Keys]].
* EvilMatriarch: Apparently this is what it is, if you think it's a "she". It doesn't help that Duminuss has a CrossDressingVoice.

* DemotedToExtra: Laliar was very active in ''Reversal''. In ''OG Gaiden'', he's more or less something of a glorified MissionControl for his siblings. While he does get into battle, it'd be for around just one or two battles.

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: According to WordOfGod, Raul and the rest of the ''Reversal'' cast were originally not intended to be in the ''Second Original Generation''. Because of development delays and time constaints, the team could have either not add them into the sequel or put them in, but rendered only the Excellence Rescue as the only frame available; they chose the latter.



* HeyItsThatVoice: A special treat for ''FlameOfRecca'' fans. Fiona's basically a more laidback [[TheChick Yanagi]] with MUCH more backbone.



* HeyItsThatVoice: ''{{Mahoromatic}}'' fans will recognize Raji as Toshiya; ''{{Shuffle}}'' fans will hear Itsuki.

In ''Reversal'', Raul lives in a CrapsackWorld where events like ''MobileSuitGundamCharsCounterattack'' or ''[[Anime/MartianSuccessorNadesico Martian Successor Nadesico: Prince of Darkness]]'' is on the air. Trying to promote the Time Flow Engine, he enlists him and his team to the [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamZZ Nahel Argama]] or [[Anime/MartianSuccessorNadesico Nadesico]], but at one point meets the enigmatic Duminuss, who wants the Engine for its own purposes. Attacking Raul and his team, the Engine is damaged enough that it opens a wormhole, transporting them to the past, but before the events that occurred which turned their world into a crapsack one. After doubting that any changes will preserve the future, Raul declares that ''maybe'' a TemporalParadox won't hurt, if it's to fix the BadFuture, thus works with the "[[BadassArmy Round Knights]]" to ensure events will not trigger to cause the worst outcome. Duminuss continues to target him and the Engine, but its death throws Raul and his company back to their time, now brighter and sunnier because of his efforts to fix the past.

* BackFromTheDead, CameBackWrong: It'd use these as a mean to antagonize the heroes by reviving two supposedly dead characters. In ''Reversal'', it's [[spoiler:[[MobileFighterGGundam Master Asia]]]]; in ''Original Generation'', it's [[spoiler:[[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAdvance Lamia Loveless]]]] (though more of a case of salvaging a NotQuiteDead person).

The only male homunculus, Laliar serves as the middle ground between Tis and Despinis. He contacts the [[MobileSuitGundamCharsCounterattack Neo Zeon]] in ''Reversal'' and takes a more active stance in combat. In ''Original Generation Gaiden'', Laliar rarely heads to the battlefield and [[DemotedToExtra seemingly gets shafted to the sidelines]].

The pink-haired homunculus of Duminuss, Tis is the leader of the three. Impulsive and hot-headed, Tis is [[ACupAngst super sensitive about the size of breasts]] (in fact, her wish if she ever gets revivied is to get [[BuxomIsBetter a body with larger ones]]). In ''Reversal'', Tis makes contact with [[{{Zambot 3}} the Gaizock Empire]]; in ''Original Generation'', she handles the [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsCompact2 Space Flounder monsters]], as well ensuring the G-Thundergate is still in their possession.

** Technically subverted, because she doesn't do this pose while doing her HeroicSacrifice: she pulls it out after surviving all those hijinx with the Eternal frame. A case can also be made that the Final Grand Cross is a ShoutOut to DetonatorOrgun's "Grand Cross" attack.
