* HenshinHero: Minus their ability to transform *LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters: Probably holds the record for being the {{Franchise/Ultra Series}} with the most number of characters. This trope comes into Ultramen, play mainly due to the nature of XIG.

There are also three commanders and three {{Bridge Bunnies}}(though one is a support recruit). Then there are the members of G.U.A.R.D.(the American division and the Japanese division). Then there is the trio from KCB, the Alchemy Stars Network and Gamu's peers at Jounan University.
