[[folder:Gundam Force]]

!!Shute/Shuuto
Shute is a kid genius from Neotopia. He's impulsive and sometimes irritating, however his boundless enthusiasm can be an asset.

!!Zero, The Winged Knight
Knight Gundam from the magical realm of Lacroa. Zero was sent to Neotopia to find help in order to save his homeland from the invading Dark Axis. After two years of searching, the Dark Axis started to invade Neoptopia as well. Normally calm and graceful it's best not to make him mad. Or you could end up buried under a mountain of roses.

!!Bakunetsumaru, The Blazing Samurai
The fiery Musha Gundam from the land of Ark. Ark and Lacroa are two lands one the same world in the same dimension. However the two lands are complete opposites, and so are Baku and Zero. Where Zero is calm and graceful, Bakunetsumaru is quick to anger and likes to swing his swords everywhere. However he is an honorable samurai and will help any who need him.

* JustInTime: How Baku first arrives in Neotopia. On a flaming horse no less!

The heir to the throne of Lacroa, and the one who sent Zero to Neotopia in the first place.

Though a bit headstrong, she nonetheless shows the wisdom of her station.

* NonHumanSidekick: At least in the case of Kao Lyn's Ball.

* InsufferableGenius: A less antagonistic version.

!!Operator gms and Assistant gms.

* {{Expy}}
* RedShirtArmy

!!Gunbike / Gunpanzer
Captain's original instructor. An AI that's been uploaded into a vehicle, Gunbike was added to the main squad as a trainer. Rough, tough, and by no means easy-going, Gunbike is determined to whip the gang into shape. His AI was later uploaded into Gunpanzer before being sent to Ark.

* DrillSergeantNasty

[[/folder]]

[[folder:Dark Axis]]

!!Zako Soldiers
Zako's are the main fighting force of the Dark Axis. ...It's amazing they've won as many battles as they have.

* AdorableEvilMinions: Zako's are so cute!
* {{Expy}}: They resemble Zaku II early production types, but are a homage to cannon fodder Zakus in general.
* HarmlessVillain
* HelpfulMook Funny thing is, they start out on the more accidentally assisting side. [[spoiler:Over time they become genuinely gentle under Genkimaru and eventually become his [[RedShirtArmy Genki Energy Force]].]]
* MechaMooks: Fits these guy's to a tie.
* MiniMook
* StrongFleshWeakSteel
* ShowWithinAShow: Three of them host the Zako Zako Hour, which takes place in TheStinger of some episodes. These segments serve to explain certain aspects of the main series' backstory, such as why the Dark Axis uses control horns, why Kibaomaru's forces are working with them, and other things. However, a combination of the Zakos' stupidity, FridgeLogic, temperamental guests, the Zakos' stupidity, a lack of research, and the [[RuleOfThree Zako's stupidity]], causes [[HilarityEnsues hilarity to ensue]].
* VerbalTic: Zako!

!!Zapper Zaku
Probably THE MOST TriggerHappy guy you'll every meet. He was the first to attack Neptopia and fail. Once the Dark Axis is defeated in Neotopia he becomes the janitor for the Gundammusai. [[spoiler:He later CLAIMS to have been faking the whole time so he'd be able to get his revenge on the General for abandoning him and his troops. But that's debateable.]]

* ArsonMurderandJaywalking: Destroy the dimensions, destroy the Gundams, [[spoiler: smash a poor innocent flower.]]
* AxCrazy
* EvilLaugh: He loves to do this when he's firing his guns.
* {{Expy}}/CompositeCharacter: Zapper's a dead ringer for Bloody Zaku, but is based on a [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamZZ Zaku III]]
* AFatherToHisMen: Before his promotion, he was actually a lot nicer to the Zakos, teaching two of them how to properly get ahead in life.
* GeneralFailure: Him and everyone else in his gang.
* HarmlessVillain: He talks the talk but when it comes to walking the walk, he'll always fall on his face.
* ImperialStormtrooperMarksmanshipAcademy: Zapper graduated top of his class
* PokeThePoodle
* StartOfDarkness: He was always evil, but he started getting bloodthirsty after one of his men was killed giving his machine guns back to him so he could finish a fight on more even grounds.

!!Grappler Gouf
Grappler is one of the Dark Axis's top fighters. He's the smartest and most levelheaded of the TerribleTrio. Of course that's not saying much.

* DastardlyWhiplash: He thinks he's the most clever and cunning of the group... he's not.
* EvilGloating
* {{Expy}}: Grappler is based on a [[Anime/The08thMSTeam Gouf Custom]].

* KickThemWhileTheyAreDown
* OnlySaneMan: Compared to his squadmates, ESPECIALLY during the second half of the series.
* SmugSnake
* SwissArmyAppendage: His left arm can be swapped out for either a basic arm or a bladed claw.

!!Destroyer Dom
Unlike Grappler, Dom is the dumbest of the dumb. There aren't enough words to describe how dumb this guy is. What he lacks in intellegince he makes up for in brute force. "Duh, guns go boom!"

* AchievementsInIgnorance
* {{Expy}}: Destroyer Dom is based on a [[VideoGame/GundamZeonicFront Dom Funf]](oddly the only Expy of the dark axis trio who's counterpart does not already have a fin on it's head that resembles the command fins). His love for weapons is also reminiscent of Command Gundam.
* FiringInTheAirALot
* {{Flanderization}}: His speech patterns started off as simplistic, but still with good grammar. Eventually he goes full HulkSpeak.
* ObliviousToHints
* RecklessGunUsage: Believe it or not he's actually worse than Zapper. I know it's shocking.
* StupidEvil: [[spoiler: Turns out he's not so evil but plenty stupid.]]
* TookALevelInDumbass: He actually started out as being very imposing. As you can imagine that didn't last long.

!!Zako Red
A Zako Soldier with a unique red-ish color scheme and command fin. Zako Red is stated to be second only to the Commander, and commands the Dark Axis forces during the full invasion of Neotopia. Implied to be nothing more than a remote-controlled puppet for the Commander, as he was deactived once the invasion was complete.

* {{Expy}}/MythologyGag: He and Sazabi are modeled after mobile suit's piloted by [[MobileSuitGundam Char Aznable]].
* VerbalTic: Like all Zakos, but his sounds rather...forced.
* XanatosSpeedChess: He's isn't above modifying his plans when need be. After Captain renders the use of Control Horns meaningless, he goes through the next phase (Petrify Neotopia's living creatures with BaguBagu) and steals his Soul Drive.
* YouHaveOutlivedYourUsefulness: Pretty much the only reason he was deactivated. Then kicked away.

!!Doga Bombers
The Doga's are the flying force of the Dark Axis. During the invasion of Neotopia, they were commanded by Four Doga Commandos, but they were destroyed before the battle's end.

* AirborneMook
* {{Expy}}: They're based on Jagd Dogas, the yellow commando specifically being based on Gyunei Guss's custom Jagd Doga.
* FourIsDeath: The Four Doga Commandos.
* YouHaveFailedMe: While the rest of the Commandos get destroyed by the Gundams, Doga Grey is vaporized by Sazabi himself.

!!Commander Sazabi
The Commander is one of the most dangerous soldiers of the Dark Axis. He was in charge of the invasions of Lacroa and Neotopia. He is both large and powerful, a deadly combination.

* {{Badass}}: He fights Zero and Bakunetsumaru and they don't even slow him down.
* BadBoss: He murders a bunch of his minions just to tell Shute that he doesn't care about them.
* BigBad: Made out to be during the first season, it's only revealed that he's not the leader of the Dark Axis AFTER he's dead.
* DiscOneFinalBoss: With him gone, the Dark Axis is beaten, right? The General would like to disagree...
* TheDragon: [[spoiler:To Gerbera]]
* {{Expy}}: See Zako Red.
* GalacticConqueror
* KnightOfCerebus: Not initially due to his comedic traits when he's berating his minions, but when he finally appears on-screen, he's a much more serious villain no comedic quirks. He's the first villain we see get KilledOffForReal.
* NiceJobFixingItVillain: His kicking away Zako Red (the last one with the Zakurello Remote) is what allowed the SDG to take control of the Zakurello Gate.

!!Professor Gerbera / [[spoiler: Madnug]]
The Professor is second in command only to the General himself. He is science officer for the Dark Axis and responsible for all deploment of troops to other dimensions. [[spoiler: In reality he is a Gundam from Neotopia's future. He was on a misson to explore outerspace when their was a malfunction. He was sent back in time and captured by the General.]]

* BadassBookworm: He is a Professor after all.
* DrunkOnTheDarkSide
* {{Expy}}/MythologyGag: Is based on the Gerbera Tetra, which was [[spoiler:built from the scrapped Gundam [=GP04=] "Gerbera". It makes that one plot twist much more obvious.]]
* FallenHero: He was once a Gundam created by the SDG.
* HumansAreBastards: He certainly thinks so.
* HyperCompetentSidekick / TheHeavy: While Gerbera DOES follow the General's whims, he's the one who handles most of the details, including the invasion of different worlds.
* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast: His and The General's. He's the second in command for a reason.
* SanitySlippage: At first, while definitely not one of the goodguy's, he at least was sane enough to try and manipulate Captain. He almost pulled it off too, but after that. When he ran into Captain again he seemed to lose what little grip he had on reality.
* SdrawkcabName
* TinTyrant: [[spoiler:To hide the fact that he's a Gundam.]]
* TragicVillain

!![[spoiler:General Zeong]]
[[spoiler:The General is the leader of the Dark Axis. A terrifying figure, his subbordinates live in constant fear of his anger. His body damaged or incomplete, the General sends his forces throughout the dimensions to collect the needed material to finish repairing him... Gundanium.]]

* AGodAmI: [[spoiler:Doesn't say it, but Kibaomaru likens him to a 'Mecha-deity'.]]
* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking
* BiggerBad: [[spoiler:He's the most dangerous enemy in the series, but doesn't really do much until the final episodes.]]
* BreakTheCutie: [[spoiler: What he did to Madnug, and what he does to Shute. The former became a FallenHero / TragicVillain, the latter...resulted in his chest being blown apart.]]
* CaptainErsatz / {{Expy}}: [[spoiler:Lets see, an evil giant space robot explicitly stated to be overwhelmingly powerful, has designs on omnicide while his allies think he's out for conquest...lets face it, General Zeong is basically [[ComicBook/CrisisOnInfiniteEarths The Anti-Monitor]].]]
** [[spoiler:Or alternately, what happens when the [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam Zeong]] and the [[{{Anime/SpaceRunawayIdeon}} Ideon]] had an abomination baby who happens to be Gundam's equivalent of TheDevil.]]

* OmnicidalManiac: You may wanna get scared after this: In full power, General Zeong's beam cannon can wipe out the entire universe. Clearly he's rivals the former in power!
* OneManArmy: He is [[spoiler:The single most powerful individual robot in the whole multiverse!]]
* PhysicalGod
* ThePurge: His true ultimate plan is to destroy the entire multiverse! He's worse than that Anti-Monitor guy!
* TheUnintelligible: Gerbera has to translate all of his dialogue.
* WalkingSpoiler
* WhamLine: [[spoiler:''"You and the Gundam Force are too late...everything is at an end!"'']]

[[folder:The Kingdom of Lacroa]]

!!Pawn Leo
If there was ever anybody worse at being evil than the Zako soldiers, it's these guys. There so lame that if they were to simply trip they'd expire in a snap.

* {{Expy}}: Based on..well, OZ-06MS Leo.
* IneffectualSympatheticVillain: They do fight hard, then get turned into dice. What else can be said.
* MythologyGag: The fact that they are made in Tallgeese's image is a reference to the fact OZ-06MS Leos are the mass-produced version of OZ-00MS Tallgeese, in spite of the fact that the Pawn Leos look nothing like Tallgeese...
* SmallNameBigEgo: They think they're smarter and stronger than Zako Soldiers...they're not.
* VerbalTic: Pawn!

!!Tallgeese, Knight of the Tempest
Tallgeese once wished to become a Knight Gundam. However he didn't meet the required standards. He was so angry that he quickly joined the Dark Axis as soon as they appeared. He enslaved the Sacred Griffin and helped to overthrow Lacroa.

* BigNo: He has a really good voice for this.

* {{Expy}}: Tallgeese is naturally based on OZ-00MS Tallgeese.

* MeaningfulName: Shute thinks it's funny. Tallgeese HATES funny!
* NobleDemon
* NotSoHarmlessVillain: Sure, he's a LargeHam, but he's still a dangerous force to be reckoned with. Being an UnwittingPawn doesn't make him any less threatening.
* RedemptionEqualsDeath: After Deathscythe betrays him and Bakunetsumaru helps him, he decides to sacrifice his life in orderd to free Fenn and save everyone.
* UnwittingPawn: What he is to Deathscythe. [[spoiler: He figures it out in the end, though.]]

!!Deathscythe, Knight of Darkness / [[spoiler: Deed, the Icy Knight]]
The one who is responsible for the fall of Lacroa. [[spoiler: Once he was called Deed. One of the noble Knight Gundams of Lacroa. It turns out that over time he'd fallen in love with Princess Rele.

* ShockAndAwe: Mercurius' power.

!!Epyon
A magic sword Deathscythe gives to Tallgeese, Epyon will grant its wielder with the power of those it slays- but at a price. Anyone who uses the sword will eventually be possesed by it and turned into the Berserker Epyon, a vicious killer with an obsession for devouring his opponents.

* TheCorruption

* {{Expy}}: It's Berserker Epyon form is based on Gundam Epyon, though the sword has no counterpart, as Gundam Epyon uses a LaserBlade as it's primary weapon.
* WithGreatPowerComesGreatInsanity: The more you use it, the more unhinged you become.

!!The Royal Knights of Lacroa
A group of five Knight Gundams who serve the Royal Family. Besides Zero, their ranks include Rock the Desert Knight, Battle the Blazing Knight, Nataku the Bronze Knight, and Deed the Icy Knight.

* FutureBadass
* {{Gasshole}}: The only character on the show to pass wind. Several times.
* IncomingHam: His intro is notable due to the subtle foreshadowing when one of the spheres is the wrong color a couple of times. [[spoiler: It turns out this is due to him being a member of the Kibao Clan]]
* MessianicArchetype: Shows signs of this towards the end.
* OrphansPlotTrinket: His knife [[spoiler: with the Kibao emblem on it]] once belonged to his mother. And it's needed for TheReveal.

!!Zako Busshi
That's right folks... Ark-style Zako Soldiers! These little guys were deployed to Ark to help Kibaomaru, and fight alongside his army.

* {{Expy}}: They are based on Busshis, one of Neo Japan's cannon fodder defense units, which oddly were primarily meant for space defense, yet in spite of this Zako Busshi can not fly.

!!Lord Britainmaru
Bakunetsumaru's lord and master, Buritenmaru is a VERY old Musha Gundam noble who once ruled more than half of Ark, and the only one still trying to fight against Kibaomaru.

* {{BFG}}: Tanega Rifle Tancho Crane!
* {{Expy}}: He's based on John Bull Gundam, which is Neo England's gundam fighter, hence the "Brit" in his name(phonetically in the case of his japanese name).
* IWasQuiteTheLooker: Flashbacks show that he was incredibly strong and well-built. Now, however...
* MiniatureSeniorCitizens: ...Time has shrunken him to the size of Genkimaru.

!!Ginkaku & Kinkaku
Lord Buritenmaru's right hand men are always by his side. There jobs are, to protect their lord, carry the Tanega Rifle, and translate what he's saying.

* NumberTwo: Two of them.

!!Cobra Ninja Force
Cobramaru's fellow ninja, all under the employ of Kibaomaru. On their lord's orders, they attempt to assasinate Buritenmaru, but are stopped and destroyed by Bakunetsumaru, wearing the Armor of Bakushin.

* KilledOffForReal: They do not survive their fight with Bakushinmaru.
* {{Ninja}}
* {{Sentai}}: They oddly do not pull an IncomingHam nor are they [[LargeHam Large Hams]], but otherwise properly fill the role of a villain sentai.

!!Daishinsho
One of the ultimate weapons of the Land of Ark. Mush Daishinsho can only be commanded by the Dai-Shogun. In a sense he is the weapon that [[OnlyTheChosenMayWield only the next Dai-Shogun may wield]]. [[spoiler:Once the next Dai-Shogun is found he transforms into The Ship of The Golden Crest.]]

* {{BFS}}: The Dairyogoku Sword, about four times his height.
* {{Expy}}/CompositeCharacter: Somewhat resembles Devil Gundam's MF mode, but is based on the hyper modes of Shining Gundam and Kowloon Gundam.
* HumongousMecha
** MotionCaptureMecha: How Daishinshou is controlled, a reference to how Mobile Fighters were controlled in ''Anime/GGundam''
* LaserBlade: He can create one if he loses his own sword.
* PoweredArmor

* GoodParents
* ObliviousYoungerSibling: Nana's actually a very perseptive baby.
