Through hard work and guts, here's the GunBuster character page! Still under construction,

[[folder:Main Characters]]

!Noriko Takaya
[[caption-width-right:200:[[TheHero Our Heroine]].]]
* AcePilot: Becomes one over the course of the series.
* ActionGirl
* {{Adorkable}}
* AscendedFangirl: In the science lesson shorts, she reveals that she's a big ''GetterRobo'' fan. Also, she gets mentored by the actual Getter team in ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsAlpha''.
* {{Badass}}
** BadassAdorable
** BadassArmfold: Arguably the TropeCodifier in Japan.
** TookALevelInBadass: Quite possibly one of the best examples. Compare her performance in [[JokeCharacter episode one]] with that in [[PersonOfMassDestruction episode four]].
* [[BashBrothers Smash Sisters]]: With Kazumi.
* BreakTheCutie: Breaks pretty quickly in Episode 1, and breaks again in episode 3-4, before [[TookALevelInBadass Taking Her Levels In Badass]].
* '''''[[CallingYourAttacks CALLING YOUR ATTACKS]]''''': Enough over the course of just six episodes that she became [[Pantheon/{{War}} Goddess]] of the trope.
* CuteClumsyGirl
* TheDanza: Voiced by Creator/NorikoHidaka.
* {{Expy}}: Of [[AimForTheAce Hiromi Ouka]], considering that ''Gunbuster'' started as an AffectionateParody of ''Manga/AimForTheAce''
* {{Gainaxing}}
* HotBlooded: Even more so when you consider that she's the basis for [[Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann Simon]].
* [[RedHeadedHero Red-Headed Heroine]]: Although it's a really dark shade that borders on brown sometimes.
* RousingSpeech: Gives one to Kazumi in episode 5, combined with a verbal BrightSlap.

!Kazumi Amano
* ActionGirl
* Badass
** HeartbrokenBadass: [[spoiler: In episode 5, when she has to leave Earth for a mission and by the time she gets back, he'll probably be dead from his illness]]. [[SubvertedTrope Subverted]] when they return to Earth after victory and [[spoiler: he's still alive]].
* [[BashBrothers Smash Sisters]]: With Noriko.
* '''''[[CoolBigSis COOL BIG SIS]]''''': [[Pantheon/{{Family}} Goddess of the trope]]. She's actually referred to as "oneesama" more than by her own name!
* {{Expy}}: The [[AimForTheAce Reika]] to Noriko's Hiromi
* MayDecemberRomance: Is in love with Coach Ohta, who was an officer on the ''Luxion'' with Noriko's dad.
** HotForTeacher
* [[WorldOfCardboardSpeech World Of Cardboard Monologue]]
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair

!Jung Freud
* AuthorAppeal: Was apparently named by Creator/HideakiAnno. [[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion Yes]], ''[[CreatorBreakdown that]]'' one.
* FauxActionGirl
* ForeignFanservice: She's from the Soviet Union, judging by her mecha.
** Or, judging by the name, on loan to the Soviet Union from East Germany (like [[ Sigmund Jähn]] in RealLife).
* {{Expy}}: If Kazumi and Noriko are [[AimForTheAce Reika and Hiromi]], Jung is most likely their Ranko.
* IneffectualLoner
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold
* [[RedHeadedHero Red-Headed Heroine]]
* TheRival

! Koichiro "Coach" Ohta
[[caption-width-right:300:NorioWakamoto, pre-[[PigeonholedVoiceActor Pigeon-holing]].]]
* {{Badass}}
* DrillSergeantNasty
* MayDecemberRomance: With Kazumi.
** HotForStudent
* {{Expy}}: Of [[AimForTheAce Coach Jin Munakata]]
* NorioWakamoto
* PlayingAgainstType: Wakamoto hadn't actually ''been'' typecast yet, but Ohta doesn't have ''any'' of the [[EvilIsHammy Villainous]] LargeHam that NorioWakamoto has since become so known for.


[[folder: Minor characters]]
* AlphaBitch: In the first episode.
* HeelFaceTurn
** DefeatMeansFriendship: Gets her butt kicked at the end of the first episode and promptly cleans up her act.
