!!Ken Washio a.k.a. G-1, Ken the Eagle, Gatchaman

[[quoteright:225:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/g1kentheeaglenew_1554.jpg]]
->Voiced by: KatsujiMori (JP), Creator/MasayaOnosaka (JP - OAV), Leraldo Anzaldua (EN - ADV dub)

TheLeader and tactical expert of the Science Ninja Team. He is the eponymous “Gatchaman” of the show’s title. TheHero. He has a strong sense of justice and is very dedicated to his duty of bringing down the Galactor organization and bringing peace to the world. He also wishes to find his lost father, who he believes to have faked his death from a supposed plane crash [[spoiler: (rightfully so)]]. He is a flashy fighter, and often uses elaborate techniques in his moves. His primary weapon is a bird shaped bladed boomerang. He is an accomplished pilot, and owns a Cessna plane that transforms into the G1 jet plane while on duty, serving as his personal transport.

-----
* AcePilot: His skills are inherited from his father.
* AchillesInHisTent: Does this from time to time.
* [[RedOniBlueOni Blue Oni]]: To Joe's Red Oni. Sometimes reversed.
* ChasteHero
* CommanderContrarian: To Dr. Nambu.
* CoolPlane: A Cessna plane that transforms into a supersonic jet. Supposedly operational underwater like the God Phoenix.
* DisappearedDad: His father, Kentarou, abandoned him when he was young. [[spoiler:It turns out he was going undercover as Red Impulse, and [[ItsNotYouItsMyEnemies wanted to keep his son and only relative safe]]. And later he ''does'' die for real, just as Ken had found out who he was *and* they were starting to rekindle their relationship. This death was smoothly erased in BattleOfThePlanets. His father is described as having ejected at the last minute, though of course their reunion is off-screen. The whole thing is a variation on LukeIAmYourFather, since the reveal is done by the son's ''comrades'' and its effect is positive.]]
* GunTwirling: Except he does it with his boomerang.
* MrFanservice: To a lesser extent than Joe, but his big blue eyes and boyish good looks score him points.
* TheHero
* HilariouslyAbusiveChildhood: Ken has a flashback about his younger days with his father which shows once scene of his dad ''attempting to '''drown''' him for fun''.
* HurtingHero: He lost his father when he was a little child. Later he [[spoiler:finds out that his father is alive only to see how he was KilledOffForReal]] shortly after. At the ending of the series, Joe [[spoiler:commits a HeroicSacrifice to save them.]] At the next series his mentor and surrogate father [[spoiler:gets killed.]] All of that trauma slowly wore his sanity off, and although at the beginning he was the prototypical TheHero and TheLeader with NervesOfSteel, for the final series he had become so violent, uncontrollable and impulsive like TheLancer.
* OfficialCouple: With [[spoiler:Jun.]]
* ParentalAbandonment - ParentsAsPeople: Ken's father abandoned him when he was young and his mother died of illness a few years later. [[spoiler: He eventually reunites with his father right before his father is KilledOffForReal]].
* ShipTease: With Jun.
* ScrewTheRulesImDoingWhatsRight: Not afraid to do this to Dr. Nambu
* TookALevelInJerkass: Right after [[spoiler: his father died]], until Jun called him out on it.
* WeaponOfChoice: His bladed PrecisionGuidedBoomerang, informally called the [[ICallItVera "Bird Run/Birdrang"]]. The blades can be extended and used in melee combat or detached by chain and used as a nunchuck.
* WellDoneSonGuy
* WouldHitAGirl: He does this to a girl in one episode.

[[folder:G-2 Joe Asakura]]


!!Joe Asakura a.k.a. G-2, Joe the Condor

[[quoteright:203:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/g2joethecondornew234_9570.jpg]]
->Voiced by: IsaoSasaki (JP), KoujiIshii (JP - OAV), Brian Jepson (EN - ADV dub)

The weapons and marksmanship expert of the team. TheLancer. He is driven by his desire for revenge against the Galactor organization for taking his parent’s lives and almost taking his. At his core, he is a good guy who has his teammate’s backs, even if his methods are rough. He is the most brutal fighter on the team, and quick to go on the attack. His preferred weapon is his GrapplingHookPistol that can fire a hook line from the front and the back. He is also the most common user of the ninja team issued feather shurikens. An excellent driver, his personal vehicle is a stock car that transforms into the G2 high powered racer.

-----
* AntiHero: He has no qualms with killing Galactors in cold blood for the cause. (The others will kill too, but more out of necessity rather than satisfaction.)
* AllGirlsWantBadBoys: Part of his fanservice appeal.
* [[spoiler:BackFromTheDead]]: In ''Gatchaman II''.
* '''{{Badass}}''': All of the members are to a degree, but along with being the weapons and marksmanship expert, he is unquestionably the team's badass expert.
** BadassNormal In the original. EmpoweredBadassNormal In the sequels.
** BadassBaritone
** BadassDriver: If there's a surface, he can drive on it or coast off of it. Even up the backs of Galactor mechs.
** HeartbrokenBadass: Often.
* ButNotTooForeign: Averted. Despite his Japanese surname, Joe is Italian (Sicilian, to be specific). [[spoiler: That's because "Joe Asakura" is a false name to protect him from Galactor, his real name is George. Although it seems to be implied that his parents' surname was actually Asakura.]]
* CartwrightCurse
* CommanderContrarian: To Ken.
* CoolCar: A stock racing car in civilian form. Transformed it has puncture proof tires and can drive on improbable surfaces.
** In the OVA, he has a Shelby Cobra that transmutes into the Goddamn Batmobile.
* DeathGlare - KubrickStare
* DependingOnTheArtist: While all of the characters have this to some degree with the different animation directors and artists that worked on the series, Joe's face varies between being a lot rougher-looking and craggier to it being smoother and his only harsher feature being his narrow eyes. At some point, they settled on him having a rougher look to distinguish his design more from Ken's.
* DeusAngstMachina: And how
* TheGunslinger: The team marksman. He's shown using guns the most often and demonstrating his ImprobableAimingSkills
* GunTwirling: Fond of doing this.
* [[spoiler:HeroicSacrifice]]
* KnifeNut: The ninja equlivent of this. While the entire team carry pointy tipped feather shuriken, Joe uses them so much more often than the rest that they become his trademark weapon. He's fond of letting them hang out of his mouth like toothpicks and attacking with TwangHello or KnifeOutline
* TheLancer
* [[SensitiveGuyAndManlyMan Manly Man]]: To Ryu's Sensitive Guy.
* MrFanservice: Unconventionally for anime, as he is rough looking and not {{bishounen}}ly handsome.
** {{Exaggerated|trope}} in the OVA, where his civilian wardrobe consists of [[WalkingshirtlessScene an open shirt exposing his bare chest]] along with [[HellBentForLeather tight leather pants]], and he has a ShowerScene. [[FemaleGaze And the camera wasn't shy in regards to showing him off.]]
* ParentalAbandonment - His parents were murdered by a Galactor assassin when Joe was a child. [[HarmfulToMinors He too was almost killed by said assassin.]]
* PetTheDog: He nearly dies saving an orphaned puppy from being squished by a Galactor Mech.
* [[RedOniBlueOni Red Oni]]: To Ken's Blue Oni. Sometimes reversed.
* ResignationsNotAccepted: [[spoiler: This is the reason why Joe parents were killed. They are revealed later in the series to be former Galactors attempting to leave the organization. Galactor learned of this and sent one of their Devil Star assassins to execute the family.]]
* ShipperOnDeck: [[spoiler: During the finale, before his imminent death while giving his final speech to the team, he professes that Jun should settle down with Ken.]]
* TriggerHappy - Joe is almost unhealthily eager to fire the God Phoenix's Bird Missiles, which Ken has to constantly restrain him from doing when they don't have authorization. In one episode, he keeps hammering the [[BigRedButton fire button]] well after the ship exhausted its supply until the realization that ''yes, we are OUT of Bird Missiles'' finally sinks in.
* TroubledButCute
* WeaponOfChoice: He uses a GrapplingHookPistol, which has a grapple from the front ''and'' and weighted one from the back. One mook found out the hard way when he pointed the '''barrel''' end of it at Joe after snatching it from him, not realizing that the triggers were switched. He got thrown across the room by it after pulling the trigger, knocking him out.
** On top of that, the front can be interchanged to fire conventional bullets or power a portable drill for cutting things.
** Also the primary user of the ninja team issued feather shuriken.

[[folder:G-3 Jun]]


!!Jun a.k.a. G-3, Jun the Swan

[[quoteright:320:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/g3juntheswan03_3530.jpg]]
->Voiced by: Creator/KazukoSugiyama (JP), Creator/MichikoNeya (JP - OAV), Kim Prause (EN - ADV dub)

The technical and demolitions expert of the team and the sole female. TheChick. She generally is very kind, compassionate and emphatic towards others (but sometimes temperamental). She exhibits skill in mechanical and electrical engineering, along with creating/handling explosive devices. She is a graceful fighter who can easily take out the average {{Mook}} in a fight with her swift, acrobatic movements. She wields a yo-yo in combat that has a concealed blade, and can be remotely detonated via wire signal. She is a skilled motorcyclist, and her personal bike transforms into the G3 “Sonic Car” motorcycle that can ride on water surfaces in addition to land.

-----
* ActionGirl: She can kick as much Galactor ass as her male teammates. And let's not forget she was [[FairForItsDay quite the revolutionary figure]] in anime gender roles, as one of the first girls who fought alongside the boys. ''And'' said boys didn't look down on her for her gender.
* [[BadassBiker Badass]] BikerBabe: She can pull off some rather impressive stunts on a bike.
* BokeAndTsukkomiRoutine: She sometimes fall into this.
* ButNotTooForeign: Half American, half Japanese
* TheChick
* CoolBigSis: When she's not acting as Jinpei's ParentalSubstitute
* CoolBike: Transformed, it can ride on water surfaces even.
* DangerouslyShortSkirt: Technically, she wears a stretchy minidress with a high hemline.
* GirlyBruiser: Has the appearance and personality of one, along with the fighting ability.
* KickChick: A lot of her fighting scenes are kick based.
* MiniDressOfPower: Combined with ZettaiRyouiki.
* MsFanservice: In a more conservative way mostly, but she still qualifies. Mainly due to the [[PantyShot underwear-exposing minidress]] of her costume.
** Intensified in the OVA remake where her chest is dramatically enlarged and her outfits are much more revealing compared to the original. (And a naked TransformationSequence, natch.)
* OfficialCouple: With [[spoiler:Ken.]]
* PantyShot: Constantly, thanks to her very short skirt.
* ParentalAbandonment: Like Jinpei, she's an orphan.
* PluckyGirl
* SheFu: Justified as it goes along with the team's fighting style. The male characters will also use flips and cartwheels to dodge/maneuver around (even Ryu can come off as being agile).
* ShesGotLegs: As shown off by the lower half of her birdstyle.
* ShipTease: With Ken.
* [[TheSmartGuy The Smart Girl]]: She is this in the book smart sense of the trope. Being the technical and demolitions expert, she is commonly shown to be tinkering with electronics and rewiring things (such as electronic panels to blow up Galactor bases) and operating the teams' more complex equipment. Aside from Dr. Nambu, she is likely the most intelligent of the main cast.
* StuffBlowingUp: Usually the one to invoke this trope being the demolitions expert.
* TechnicalPacifist: Most adverse towards and visibly upset by killing on the team. However, even she will use lethal force on the job.
* TheSmurfettePrinciple
* ThighHighBoots
* {{Tsundere}}: Type B.
* WeaponOfChoice: She has her KillerYoyo, which has a concealed blade and can be remotely detonated to explode.
* [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair You Gotta Have Green Hair]]: Her hair is a murky dark green in the original series, but looks as if it were meant to be a stylization choice for depicting black hair. The sequels however, make her hair a blatant shade of green.
** Averted in the OVA, where she was given [[BrainyBrunette short brown hair.]]
* ZettaiRyouiki: Her birdstyle.

[[folder:G-4 Jinpei]]

!!Jinpei a.k.a. G-4, Jinpei the Swallow

[[quoteright:244:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/g4jinpeiswallow04_6378.jpg]]
->Voiced by: YokuShioya (JP), RicaMatsumoto (JP - OAV), Creator/LuciChristian (EN - ADV dub)

The youngest member of the team and the reconnaissance expert. He is Jun's adopted younger brother. He is TheSmartGuy from a wiseguy standpoint and the KidAppealCharacter. He is clever and resourceful, and has an especially strong rapport with children and animals. His young age can sometimes affect his self-confidence, and he'll go out of his way to prove himself. Due to his smaller size, Jinpei focuses on being as quick and agile as possible, even more so than his teammates. He uses bolos in battle to trip up and sabotage his adversaries. They can also be used as timed explosives. He knows how to drive and owns a small buggy that transforms into the G4, an all-terrain mini tank that is designed to operate in any environment.

-----
* AnnoyingYoungerSibling - is this towards Jun sometimes
** This is reversed in the live-action film where he's more annoyed by Jun.
* BadassAdorable or TagalongKid depending on the script, but like his sister, is usually a capable fighter.
* BokeAndTsukkomiRoutine: Jinpei sometimes fall into this.

* JustAKid: Sometimes victim of this
* KidHero

* PetBabyWildAnimal - See FriendToAllLivingThings above.
* PlayfulHacker - The OVA made him one of these to make him more obviously useful (and it carried over into the live-action version); he even carried a PasswordSlotMachine.
* PluckyComicRelief, sometimes.
* TheSmartGuy: He fills this roll in the street smart {{Trickster}} variation, being the KidAppealCharacter. Though his sister Jun is TheChick, she is better suited to be the smart one from an intellectual standpoint.
* WiseBeyondTheirYears: Somewhat. Not so much in maturity level, but the fact that he can handle various adult tasks like cooking and ''driving cars'' at age 9.
* WeaponOfChoice: Bolos.

[[folder:G-5 Ryu Nakanishi]]

!!Ryu Nakanishi a.k.a. G-5, Ryu the (Horned) Owl

The pilot of the Godphoenix, the team’s group transport, battle aircraft, and docking bay for the other G machines. TheBigGuy. He is easy going and friendly, being a gentle soul in nature. He uses sumo techniques in fights that take the fullest advantage of his large amount of bulk and raw strength. He carries a GrapplingHookPistol that is smaller than Joe’s, but prefers to use his body as a weapon. The Godphoenix doubles as his personal transport when not combined with the other G machines.

-----
* {{Acrofatic}}
* AdaptationalAttractiveness: In the film instead of being fat and shaggy-looking [[http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-GiiJE2jXMUo/Ugio7LbF8FI/AAAAAAAATrc/brGvg3hMCSg/s1600/%E9%88%B4%E6%9C%A8%E4%BA%AE%E5%B9%B3.jpg He looks like this.]]

* TheBigGuy
* CoolPlane: The God Phoenix doubles as his personal vehicle when not combined with the other vehicles. It can operate underwater or in near space.

* FarmBoy: Hails from a rural fishing area and speaks with a Japanese country accent.
* FriendToAllLivingThings
* GentleGiant
* HeroicSelfDeprecation: Every now and then, especially in episode 26.
* IJustWantToBeNormal: Tries to quit a few times due to feeling he's too inadequate to be on the team. They end up being [[TenMinuteRetirement Ten Minute Retirements]].
* ParentalAbandonment: Averted, since he's [[spoiler: eventually]] the only one on the team with a living family consisting of a father and a kid brother. In fact, his friends hesitate more than once to involve him oppenly in risky missions ''because'' he has a dad and a brother to come back to.
* [[SensitiveGuyAndManlyMan Sensitive Guy]]: To Joe's Manly Man.
* StoutStrength
* WeaponOfChoice: Carries a GrapplingHookPistol which he doesn't really use, preferring GoodOldFisticuffs.

* WrestlerInAllOfUs: On the few occasions that Ryu gets into a fistfight, he often uses wrestling throws and sumo-inspired techniques against Galactor mooks.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair - He has plain brown hair in the original series and sequels, but the OVA gives him wild, two-toned hair: blond on the bottom, PINK on top.

They are the work horse of the Galactor origination and make up the vast majority of its army. The {{Mooks}}. They are dressed in the same masked green outfits, though some higher ranked soldiers were different colors. They are largely made up of degenerate men that were recruited from prisons and slums throughout the world. They are primarily armed with machine guns, but some use knives and shield weapons. Most of the time, they are cannon fodder for the Science Ninja Team, since their teamwork is very poor and their accuracy when firing is low.

They are almost always killed off by the end of their featured episode, only to be replaced by a new one for the next.
