'''[[Anime/GodMars Gestalt]]''': Your obsession with [[AppliedPhlebotinum Photon Power]] is…amusing.\\
'''Dr. Hell''': This King of Hell isn’t enough to fight the Ba’al with…only with Photon Power can we survive!\\
'''[[Anime/{{Dancougar}} Sayuri]]''': Do you think those [[QuirkyMinibossSquad three clowns]] will even succeed?\\
'''Dr. Hell''': They will live up to my expectations! I have high hopes for Baron Ashura.\\
'''Gestalt''': And why the elaborate call for a showdown? If you wanted the Photon Power so badly, you could’ve taken the Photon Labs while ZEXIS were dealing with Insalaum!\\
'''Dr. Hell''': You fools could never hope to understand my plans!\\
'''Sayuri''': Perhaps. In any case good luck (not!) for the battle.\\
'''Gestalt''': You might need it more than you think! Mwahaha!
* WellIntentionedExtremist: Subverted, [[spoiler: His idea of saving the world from the Mycenae Empire is to conquer it first and rule it with an iron fist.]]
** [[spoiler: However, Dr. Hell's acquisition of the Knowledge in Saisei-Hen allowed him to discover the location of the sunken Bardos Island begin plumbing its depths for the secrets of the Mycenae Empire.

S/he then goes off to prepare for the coming fight with Baal, which s/he thinks Gaiou will be taking part of but Gaiou has other ideas.]]
* [[spoiler:DrivenToSuicide: With a twist.]]
* ICannotSelfTerminate: Dr Hell took some precautions to ensure that Ashura would't kill itself. [[spoiler: Specifically to prevent it from freeing the Mycenae Empire]].
* [[spoiler:ThanatosGambit: In the final episode, it kills itself to free the Mycenae Empire.]]
** [[spoiler: SpannerInTheWorks: However in [[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsZ Saisei-Hen]], Gaiou already destroyed the Mycenae.]]
* WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds: Between being constantly tortured for it's failures, having to watch it's mechanical beasts (actually Mycenae Soldiers) die, watching it's whole civilization being destroyed, finding out that it was betrayed by the man it pledged loyalty to [[spoiler: and seeing that it's current freakish appearance was due to the doctor having a weird diabolical moment]], and [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking being verbally abused by both sides]], you'd feel sorry for it too after a while. Still doesn't excuse it being an evil mass-murdering henchmen [[spoiler: and possibly instigating the Mycenae Empire Invasion at the end]] though (and it's past lives are nothing to sing about either, considering which side they were on).

!!!Voiced by: Creator/MinoruInaba

* ActionBomb: His doppelgangers can self destruct.

-->'''Brocken''': Geh-heh-heh, that one's piloted by a girl, huh?\\
'''Brocken''': Punishing you is gonna be SO MUCH FUN. First I'll peel off the cockpit armor, and then...\\
'''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundamSeedDestiny Lunamaria]]''': Enemy of womankind!\\
'''Marguerite''': Lewd men such as you deserve little mercy!\\
'''[[Anime/DancougarNova Aoi]]''': You're the one who's gonna be punished!\\

'''[[Anime/CodeGeass Kallen]]''': I'm gonna play soccer with your head!\\

'''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundam00 Sumeragi]]''': I hereby authorize all of you to carry out those actions.\\
