!!!Voiced by: Kazuhiko Kishino (JPN), Gerardo Alonso (Latin-American Spanish)

* AmazingTechnicolorPopulation: And no, it is never explained why he turns blue between the expedition and the present.

* ObviouslyEvil: To the point that Tsubasa picked up on his plans for world domination early on in the Bardos Expedition.

-->'''[[Anime/MazingerZ Dr. Hell]]''': …You can come out now.\\
'''[[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!
* VillainTeamUp: Works with the [[Anime/GodMars Gishin Empire]] in ''VideoGame/{{Super Robot Wars Z}}2''.
* 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. His goal is ultimately to conquer the world and unite it under his rule, in order to utilize all of mankind's means together to fight the enemy.]]

They call him by his former name ("Dimensional General") and says that they are now Ashura and not Triston/Isolde. They then go off to prepare for the coming fight with Baal, which they think Gaiou will be taking part of. Gaiou has other ideas.]]
* [[spoiler:DrivenToSuicide: With a twist.]]
* ICannotSelfTerminate: Dr Hell took some precautions to ensure that Ashura wouldn't kill themselves. [[spoiler: Specifically to prevent them from freeing the Mycenae Empire]].
* [[spoiler:ThanatosGambit: In the final episode, they kills themselves to free the Mycenae Empire.]]
** [[spoiler: SpannerInTheWorks: However in [[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsZ Saisei-Hen]], Gaiou already destroyed the Mycenae.]]
* WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds: Between being constantly tortured for their failures, having to watch their mechanical beasts (actually Mycenae Soldiers) die, watching their whole civilization being destroyed, finding out that they were betrayed by the man they pledged loyalty to [[spoiler: and seeing that their 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 them too after a while. Still doesn't excuse them being an evil mass-murdering henchmen [[spoiler: and possibly instigating the Mycenae Empire Invasion at the end]] though (and their past lives are nothing to sing about either, considering which side they were on).

* ActionBomb: His doppelgangers can self destruct.

Kallen even wanted to treat Brocken's head like a soccer ball. Brocken was surprised at these reactions to his statement.
-->'''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/GenesisOfAquarion Sylvia]]''': Prepare yourself, Count Pervert!\\
'''[[Anime/CodeGeass Kallen]]''': I'm gonna play soccer with your head!\\
'''[[Anime/OvermanKingGainer Sara]]''': No, no, I'm going to turn it upside down and use it as a flowerpot!\\
'''[[Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann Yoko]]''': I could use it for target practice...\\
'''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundamWing Noin]]''': No, I'll feed it to my dog.\\
'''[[Anime/MobileSuitGundam00 Sumeragi]]''': I hereby authorize all of you to carry out those actions.\\
'''Brocken''': Wha-WHAT?! I haven't even done anything yet!
