* {{Badass}}: Lots and lots.
** Agito Makashima Has a dark and evil looking Guyver unit, is a good fighter, lots of confidence. Has gone to America and recruited an army there of individuals older than himself and of a different country (he is Japanese after all), has gained a scientist to create Hyper Zoanoids/Lost Numbers/Something in between that easily kill any cannon fodder thrown at them, has shown himself to be a determinator to the max, and is crafty enough to not just get the goat of, but even outwit people like Dr. Barcus, who is several hundred years old, or even Waferdanos...who must be a least 110,000 years old, older than Archanfel! Oh and he may not even be 21 years old!
** Sho Fukamachi: See that teenager over there? The one that doesn't look like much? He's Guyver 1 and in a battle of wills he just beat the guy who could outwit 110,000 year olds before the age of 22, yeah. How does it not count?
** Aptom: Hell his human form alone counts for this, leather jacket, shades, a big scar on his face and he doesn't decay into an American 90's anti-hero! Oh yes and then there are his absorbing powers and the fact he is like a cockroach to kill off.
** Archanfel: Let's see....he's about 110,000 years old (roughly) blew up a meteorite that was the size of Mars heading for the Earth, recovered and began a vendetta against the Creators, conquers the world!, oh yeah, and there's that minor instance of pulling himself out of a blackhole and deflecting one and a half Mega Smasher blasts with one hand. Quite possibly the Earth's first badass?
** Guyver 0: Despite being a minor character we know nothing about, his contribution is significant. The first human being to EVER rebel against a higher power should count. How does he do it? By being given a Guyver unit and gives the metaphorical middle finger to the idea of mind control by proceeding to kill Zoanoids left and right. Well, then the above bad ass entered the fray and it didn't go so well. Alas!
** ZX-Tole: an armored beetle Hyper-Zoanoid with 14 freaking laser cannons in his body! One can even rival the power of the Mega Smasher! Blows off his own leg to escape Aptom, and then turns in all the respect and honor of being a Hyper-Zoanoid to be processed into a super power Lost Number and happily wipes the floor with Guyver III and Aptom, all to avenge his friends, the rest of Team Five. Pretty bad ass.
** Richard Guyot: rebel Zoalord with designs on Godhood. Was claimed to be the most powerful Zoalord by Barcas - meaning, he was the most powerful being in the world, after Archanfel. Unfortunately that last bit was a critical detail. All the same he proved virtually impossible to kill - see RasputinianDeath below - and he's ''still'' not given up. Currently, he sports a small army of Zoanoids that can combine with each other to form new combinations with geometrically increasing power - and they can even combine with 'him'' as well.



* BerserkButton: Sho and Purgstall don't like it when civilians get caught up in battles.

Added DiffLines:

** While irritating to readers who've been following the story from the beginning, this may be somewhat of a [[JustifiedTrope necessary evil]] given the manga's LongRunner status and serialized, inconsistent publication (across several different magazines). It's not exactly a guarantee that a Japanese reader picking up a copy of Young Ace will have read ''any'' previous chapters, let alone all of them, and the exposition dumps, while clunky, can be very useful to alleviate confusion if a minor detail becomes important.

An [[EvilInc Evil Corporation]] called Chronos, will go to any lengths, using any underhanded measure, to get back the armor, which has bonded itself to Sho. To help itself, Chronos has an army of modified humans called Zoanoids who can transforming into monstrous forms with increased speed and strength, as well as the second suit of Guyver armor.

* MoodWhiplash: The first live-action movie can't decide whether it wants to be a DenserAndWackier adaptation or dark and violent, ending up rather schizophrenic as a result.

* MoodWhiplash: The first live-action American movie can't decide whether it wants to be a DenserAndWackier adaptation or dark includes the gore and violent, ending up rather schizophrenic as a result.dismemberment from the manga, but mixes it in with totally out of place cartoonish humor. The sequel plays things straight.

** Also Neo-ZX-Tole. He takes a level in badass, thus sending his bad ass scales off the level, gains all the powers of his other four teammates, an anti-Aptom germ that stops Aptom from absorbing him, and slows Aptom's healing, all at the cost of becoming a Lost Number and losing his high rank. Due to all these powers he only has only a few days to live.

Due to all these powers he only has only a few days to live. Similarly the powered-up form he gets by absorbing Elegen's power in the OVA, which gives him a massive spike in his offensive abilities but which will burn him out in a short time. [[spoiler: He doesn't live long enough for it to come up in either case.]]

The series is, at its core, an affectionate tribute to the {{Toku}} series of the seventies, in particular ''Franchise/KamenRider'' and ''{{Kikaider}}''.
