[[folder:The SRX Team]]

The team responsible for the titular {{combining|Mecha}} {{super robot|Genre}} SRX ("Super Robot Type-X"), they made their debut in the ill-fated ''VideoGame/ShinSuperRobotWars'' and various other games, but have their stories refined in ''Super Robot Wars Alpha''. In ''Shin'' and ''Alpha'', they're labeled as characters from ''Choki Taisen SRX'' ("Super War Machine SRX") instead of "Originals", which suggests they were treated as a separate series (similar to ''[[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsGaiden The Lord of Elemental]]'' in the same game).

Tropes common to multiple members of the team and their HumongousMecha are:
[[hardline]]
* CaptainErsatz
** R-1 to the [[Anime/MobileSuitZetaGundam Zeta Gundam]]: both machines carry a similar weapon loadout, can {{transform|ingmecha}} into a flight mode and has an internal system built to take advantage of its pilot's PsychicPowers (R-1's "T-Link System" to the Zeta's "biosensor"). Additionally, the R-1 can perform a [[RammingAlwaysWorks "Waverider Crash"-like attack]] in the ''[[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsOriginalGeneration Second Super Robot Wars Original Generation]]''.
** R-2 Powered, along with Rai's earlier Schultzwald, to the [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam Guncannon]].
** R-3 bears a strong resemblance to the [[Anime/MobileSuitGundam0083StardustMemory GP-03 Dendrobium Stamen]], especially when comparing the R-3 Powered to the Dendrobium Orchis. In addition, the GP-03 and R-3 share the same mechanical designer Hajime Katoki.
* CharacterizationMarchesOn
** Ryusei was a {{Jerkass}} in ''Shin'': most of his combat dialogue, particularly when an enemy misses, are a "Wow, give up already, loser". This facet of his personality is taken out in ''Alpha''; instead, it is used as a basis for [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsOriginalGenerationAntagonists Tenzan Nakajima]] in ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsOriginalGeneration'' to show the contrast between the ''Shin''-based Ryusei and the current one seen in ''Original Generation''.
** Back in ''Shin'', Ryusei and Rai never stop being colossal pricks to one another throughout the game; it's hard to understand how they can even stand being in the same room, let alone disliking everything about the other person. In later appearances, writers tone down the vitriol between them by having them playfully mock at the other's flaws and weakness instead, bouncing off of the other due to their different life experiences and interests, especially when CharacterDevelopment forces Ryusei to man up so they can work together easily.
* CombinationAttack: "[[AttackPatternAlpha Formation R]]" with the R-1, R-2 Powered and R-3 Powered, "[[WaveMotionGun HTB (Hyper Tronium Buster) Cannon]]" with the SRX and R-Gun Powered and "[[PowerFist Double T-Link Knuckle]]" with the R-1 and ART-1
* CombiningMecha: SRX and SRX "Altered" Banpreios - specifically for the former, the R-1 is the head, the R-2 Powered is the torso with its {{Shoulder Cannon}}s becoming the arms and hands and the R-3 Powered is the waist and legs.
* ImageSong, {{Leitmotif}}, NonSingingVoice
** Ryusei: "Everywhere You Go" by default, ''Hagane no Tamashi'' ("Soul of Steel") for the SRX and ''Hagane no Senjin'' ("War God of Steel") for the Banpreios. Also, several members from Creator/JAMProject sing his {{Leitmotif}}s; additionally, "Variable Formation", a remix of "Everywhere You Go", triggers during Formation R or in-game events when the R-Units combine into the SRX.
** Rai: "Ice Man", actually sung by legendary female singer [=MIO/MIQ=], which is surprising since Creator/RyotaroOkiayu is an excellent singer and has sung many image songs, making it strange why he doesn't sing this one.
** Aya: "Psychic Energy"; in a rare case for [=SRW=], it is sung by her respective voice actor.
** Mai: "Marionette Messiah", sung by Masako Iwanaga rather than Creator/AiOrikasa, another exceptional singer with many image songs to back her talent, but doesn't get a chance with this character.
** Ingram: "Time Diver"; following a certain event, "Emissary from the Void"/"Herald of Oblivion". Well-known singer Akira Kushida sings his {{Leitmotif}}.
** Viletta: "Woman the Cool Spy"
* {{Mad Scientists Beautiful Daughter}}s: Aya and Mai for Dr. Kenzo Kobayashi; [[spoiler:subverted because they're not their father's biological daughters, [[NotBloodSiblings nor are either of them blood-related]]]].
* MagikarpPower
** InUniverse, Ryusei progressively becomes more skilled as a pilot in subsequent sequels for the ''Alpha'' and ''Original Generation'' games. By the time he appears in ''[[AnotherCenturysEpisode Another Century's Episode: R]]'', he's caught up with [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsCompact2 Kyosuke Nanbu]] in skill, while in ''Alpha 3'' he's performing insane feats in little more than a custom R-Blade. In fact, he's one of most skilled pilots ''Original Generation'' has to offer, but it takes him an multiple installments to showcase his full potential.
*** Exemplified via GameplayAndStoryIntegration: the "Telekinesis" pilot skill can turn Ryusei into this - at the start and the middle of ''Alpha'', Ryusei is a fairly mediocre pilot; by the end, when his Telekinesis level is high enough, his evasion goes through the roof, to the point where the SRX is rendered a LightningBruiser, a rarity among super robots.
** Although not as much as [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAlpha2 Ibis Douglas]], Mai's got decent initial stats and doesn't get better than Viletta until she's leveled up a bit. In fact, players might relegate the R-Gun Powered to Viletta rather than her, as the former can use HTB Cannon in scenarios much earlier through Viletta's lower Will requirement. However, Mai's base attack power for the CombinationAttack is significantly higher than Viletta's, which makes her FAR more useful, especially when playing games on "[[HarderThanHard EX-Hard Mode]]".
* MechaExpansionPack: "Plus" parts for the R-2 Powered, R-3 Powered and R-Gun Powered
* PsychicPowers: With the exception of Rai, all members of the team are "Psychodrivers" in ''Alpha''. Averted with Ingram and Viletta in ''Original Generation'' post-ContinuityReboot, which serves as a PlotPoint when [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsOriginalGenerationSteelDragonBattleGroup Katina Tarask]] temporarily pilots the R-Gun in the first game. She's only able to because Ingram designed it to be able to fire its WaveMotionGun without a T-Link System [[spoiler:so he could use it against his teammates later]].
* TransformingMecha: "R-Wing" for the R-1 and "[[{{BFG}} Metal Genocider Mode]]" for the R-Gun Powered
* TwoGirlsToATeam: {{Inverted|Trope}}; the current team is comprised of two males (Ryusei and Rai) and three females (Aya, Mai and Viletta).
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Aya, Mai, Ingram and Viletta

!!Ryusei Date (Voiced by Creator/ShinichiroMiki)
[[quoteright:225:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ryusei.png]]
-->"''[[IKnowMortalKombat My reflexes have been honed by years of video games!]]''"

One of the recurring heroes in ''Alpha'' (actually debuting in ''Shin'' and improved in the ''Alpha'' series with a side-stop in ''VideoGame/SuperRobotSpirits'' along the way), Ryusei's the prime example of the AscendedFanboy, especially regarding video games and and HumongousMecha (particularly super robots), and is apparently [[ChasteHero uninterested in human girls, but swoons over girly-looking giant robots]]; he also has a sickly mother. His story, especially told in ''Original Generation'', revolves around getting drafted into a super robot team because he's the champion (runner-up in the AnimatedAdaptation ''Divine Wars'') of a competitive MechaGame "Burning PT", as [[IKnowMortalKombat the robots used by the military have similar controls to the game]]. There, he learns RealLife wars are completely different matters compared to video games. He's joined by fellow pilots [[TheLancer Raidese F. Branstein]] and [[TheChick Aya Kobayashi]] and becomes the core member of the SRX Team.

Despite the FaceHeelTurn of [[TheMole his commander, Ingram Prisken]], he continues the project and successfully forms the SRX. He remains in the "[[TheFederation Earth Federation Army]]", defending the Earth from various aliens and dissidents among the "[[TheFederation Earth Federation]]", while not letting go of his {{Otaku}} traits. Although Ryusei is absent in ''Alpha 2'', he returns in ''Alpha 3'', except he gets hit with HeroicBSOD after the SRX is destroyed and its "Tronium Engine" stolen by [[Characters/SuperRobotWars3 Hazal Gozzo]]. Despite this, he continues to fight and eventually gets to control the upgraded SRX "Altered" Banpreios and heads for the offensive against the "Ze Balmary Empire".

Worth noting is in ''Original Generation'', he proves to be quite a stud, such as getting the attention of [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsOriginalGenerationSteelDragonBattleGroup Latooni]] [[ShrinkingViolet Subota]] and [[SixthRanger Mai]] [[YoungestChildWins Kobayashi]]. Oddly enough, he responds to their attention, although probably not to the extent they like. Aside from [=SRW=], Ryusei has also appeared in ''Another Century's Episode: R'' alongside Kyosuke and [[Characters/MasouKishin Masaki Andoh]]. He returns in the ''Original Generation'' sequels for minor roles.

Ryusei's default mecha is the R-1, the core of the SRX. He, the R-1 and any HumongousMecha he has previously used embody these tropes:
[[hardline]]
* AscendedFanboy: Mixed alongside {{Otaku}}, Ryusei is '''THE''' poster boy of this trope for {{Super Robot|Genre}}s. Noriko Takaya of ''Anime/{{Gunbuster}}'' is a close second.
* AllYourPowersCombined: The R-1 Kai ("Custom") from ''Super Robot Spirits'' is a combination of the R-1 with new "GT-Revolvers", the R-2's Tronium Engine" and the R-3's enchanced T-Link System.
* {{BFS}}: SRX's "Z.O. Sword" and Banpreios's "S.Z.O. Sword"
* BigBrotherMentor: To [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAlpha2 Arado Balanga]] in ''Original Generation 2'' - Ryusei encourages Arado to make his own decisions to join them or go back to the "[[Characters/SuperRobotWarsOriginalGenerationAntagonists Neo Divine Crusaders]]", rather than forcing him. After his HeelFaceTurn, Ryusei becomes this trope; Arado respects and admires him like a hero.
* BloodKnight: Implied in ''Shin'', particularly if Ryusei's on the losing edge.
-->'''Rai''' (The SRX is on the verge of being destroyed): "Hey! what are you doing, Ryusei?"
-->'''Ryusei''': "Here it comes, finally! The great pinch I've been waiting for!"
* BunnyEarsLawyer: During his introduction in Scenario 5 of ''Shin'', Ryusei quickly establishes himself as some kind of crazed super robot otaku, and [[Anime/VoltesV Professor Hamaguchi]] confides to [[Anime/{{Raideen}} Akira Hibiki]] that as a pilot, Ryusei is first-rate.
* CallingYourAttacks: With full passion and {{HotBlooded}}ness!
* ChasteHero: Would rather swoon on the [[Characters/MasouKishin Valsione]], [[Anime/MazingerZ Aphrodite A]], [[VideoGame/VirtualOn Fei-Yen]] and [[Anime/GaoGaiGar KouRyu and AnRyu]].
* CluelessChickMagnet
** Poor Latooni and Mai: they never know he's only interested in giant {{Robot Girl}}s; in fact, [[OlderThanYouThink this trope occurred in as early as]] ''Shin'' - in a scene where the "[[Anime/MobileSuitGundamCharsCounterattack Londo Bell]]" meets Ryusei during the Space Route, he manages to make [[Anime/MazingerZ Kouji Kabuto]] jealous of [[Anime/MazingerZ Sayaka Yumi]] for once instead of the reverse.
** Interestingly, recent titles have mixed this up a bit further: [[spoiler:Ryusei's well aware of Latooni and Mai's affections and, to varying degrees, shares similar feelings to both of them. Whether he's deliberately avoiding the issue because he knows they're both emotionally vulnerable and isn't exactly keen on having to break someone's heart is up to players' interpretation]].
* {{Deuteragonist}}: Despite not being one of the actual protagonists (see below), Ryusei has a major presence throughout ''Alpha'' and a character arc to boot. In fact, his "screen-time" is comparable to canon ''Alpha'' heroine Kusuha Mizuha (she doesn't appear in ''Alpha Gaiden'' while Ryusei does).
* EyeBeams: SRX and Banpreios' "Gaun Genocider"; notably, if the attack succeeds, a TitleThemeDrop of Ryusei's {{Leitmotif}} is heard.
* GenreSavvy: In ''The Moon Dwellers'', when the strange ghost-like creatures start gathering and merging, Ryusei {{Lampshades}} on what his allies should anticipate to happen.
-->'''[[Characters/SuperRobotWarsGC Akimi Akatsuki]]''': "Ensign Ryusei, did you expect that they would transform like that?"
-->'''Ryusei''': "Definitely. I remember there was a similar scene in ''[[AShowWithinAShow Choukin Gesshin Burn Blade 3 - Cross Omega]]''.
* GunsAkimbo, SwordsAkimbo, ChainsawGood: Of all the units Ryusei has ever used, the R-1 and ART-1 has dual pistols, the R-Blade (and its ''Alpha 3'' AceCustom) carries twin blade tonfas and the ART-1 uses ''chainsaw tonfas''. The R-1 Kai from ''Alpha Gaiden'' takes the first two tropes to the extreme with a pair of "Giant Tonfa Revolvers".
* TheHerosJourney: His character arc in ''Original Generation'' conforms especially well to the Campbellian archetype.
* IKnowMortalKombat: {{Lampshaded}} by Ryusei in ''Original Generation 2'' for his combat dialogue.
--> "I honed my reflexes through years of video games!"
* JumpedAtTheCall: Played with in Ryusei's first appearance for ''Shin'' - Professor Hamaguchi orders him to sortie in the R-1, but tells him not to press his luck since allied reinforcements will arrive soon. Ryusei is so overconfident he beats up the aliens with backup from the Anime/{{Raideen}}. Hamaguchi ends up giving Ryusei a verbal chewing for pushing the experimental R-1 so hard, threatening to ground him if he pulls any more reckless stunts.
* LeaderFormsTheHead: Played with - the R-1 is the head of the SRX, but Ryusei is not the leader of the SRX Team. However, once the SRX combines, control of the machine is performed by him.
* MommasBoy: Played with; Ryusei adores his mother [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsOriginalGenerationOthersAndWalkingSpoilers Yukiko Date]], the one thing ranking higher than HumongousMecha and TrueCompanionship on his list of priorities. In fact, he was going to enter the military to pay off her medical bills rather than go to college ([[FallingIntoTheCockpit though he gets "drafted", anyways]]). Subverted as Yukiko isn't in control of his life, though he still occassionally pays a visit to her. However, played straight when [[spoiler:any mention about Yukiko getting experimented in her younger years at a Psychodriver lab or utter a death threat against her]] - Ryusei will hastily defend his mother.
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: Played for laughs after a scuffle with [[Anime/BlueCometSPTLayzner Lu Cain and his "Demon Death Platoon"]] and a duel with [[Anime/MobileFighterGGundam Master Asia]] in an Earth Route Scenario for ''Shin'' - as a result of the fighting, the cave falls apart. Professor Eri Anzai nearly faints, unable to comprehend how the hot-headed [[Anime/MobileFighterGGundam Domon Kasshu]] and Ryusei can ignore the cultural value of whatever was in that cave.
* ParentalAbandonment: Yukiko's still around, but [[spoiler:his father was a police officer killed during duty]].
* {{Robeast}}: [[spoiler:Gets turned into one by [[Anime/GaoGaiGar Primada]] in an ''Alpha 2'' {{Yonkoma}} seen [[http://www.dra-mata.com/manga/4koma/old/a2-03.jpg here]]]].
* SeriesMascot: Him and the SRX - Banpresto's logo is the SRX's visor, and its jingle is the TitleThemeDrop of Ryusei's "Everywhere You Go" {{Leitmotif}}. However, he ''isn't'' the most iconic of the originals despite Banpresto's efforts to make him so; that title likely belongs to Kusuha, Sanger or perhaps Masaki.
* ShipTease
** As much as Ryusei's the AscendedFanboy, there's a good amount of shipping from fans for him and Latooni or Mai throughout ''Original Generation''.
*** Interestingly, neither side can claim a win: sure, Mai gets the Double T-Link Knuckle with Ryusei in ''Original Generation Gaiden'', but Latooni gets a hug from him in ''The Inspectors'' (AnimatedAdaptation of ''Original Generation 2''). Of course, there's always [[OneTrueThreesome another option]]...
** Back in ''Alpha Gaiden'', him and Viletta spend a long time alone together off-screen. Who knows what went on other than training in that period...
** It's subtle, but Aya feels more comfortable around Ryusei in ''Original Generation'' than any other male character [[spoiler:after Ingram's FaceHeelTurn]].
* ShowWithinAShow
** He's a big fan of Burning PT and the anime "Burn Blade" in ''Original Generation''.
** In ''Alpha 3'', his fellow pilots are shocked when Ryusei gives them a rare copy of "[[Anime/SuperDimensionFortressMacross Macross: Legend of Lynn Minmei]]" romance movie to [[Anime/{{Macross 7}} Mylene Jenius]] as a birthday present. Turns out he's only interested in the film's "[[AMechByAnyOtherName Valkyrie]]" battle scene.
* SuperPrototype: Aside from the Wildrauptier and R-Blade, the R-1, ART-1 and R-Blade Custom are essentially this and his {{Ace Custom}}s.
* TakeMyHand: In ''Divine Wars'', Ryusei (in his Wildraubtier) does this to Rai (in his Schutzwald) while standing on the Grungust's "Wing Gust" transformation.
* ThisIsReality: A good deal regarding his CharacterDevelopment in ''Original Generation'' is Ryusei learning how reality is harsher than his favored video games. Thankfully, Ryusei matures quickly, unlike his EvilCounterpart Tenzan.
* ThrowingYourSwordAlwaysWorks: R-1's strongest attack "T-Link Sword" generates an ornate blade out of psychic energy, which he promptly ''throws'' at the enemy like a javelin. Driving home this point is although being classified as a melee-based attack, it can't be used directly on adjacent enemies, despite being ''a sword''.
* UnskilledButStrong: Ryusei relies on his natural abilities and a mech's specifications to get by initially; in all {{Continuity}} appearances, once [[ThisIsReality reality sets in]], he thoroughly trains to be as skilled as his peers.
** Done via GameplayAndStoryIntegration with his pilot skill "Telekinesis": at low levels, the skill provides minor boosts in accuracy and evasion, but at the highest levels, Ryusei at the helm of the SRX will turn it into a LightningBruiser.
* UnwantedHarem: {{Zigzagged}} - Viletta ''[[MentorShip might]]'' like him that way and [[Characters/MasouKishin Mio Sasuga]] has made a few advances on him during the first two ''Alpha'' games when the ''Masou Kishin'' cast are included ([[BrattyHalfPint though she is likely kidding]]). At first there was Kusuha, who has since moved on because she became an UnluckyChildhoodFriend, while Aya's a "maybe" and [[HoYay Rai is a possibility]] ([[YaoiFangirl at least according to certain parts of the fandom]]); finally, there's Latooni and Mai, who are outright smitten with him. However, it's not so much "unwanted" as much as [[ChasteHero he has no idea it exists]].
* WeNeedADistraction: Before Scenario 29 of the Space Route in ''Shin'', Londo Bell concocts a plan - create a diversion to let their forces sneak inside. The diversionary squad includes Ryusei, for whom making a big scene is a specialty.
* WorfEffect
** [[spoiler:In the prologue of ''The Inspectors'', the "[[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAdvance Shadow-Mirror]]" universe version of the SRX Team is brutally destroyed by [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsOriginalGenerationAntagonists Beowulf]]. Just to show how sadistic he is, a defeated Ryusei gets ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice]].
** At the beginning of ''Alpha 3'', Hazal {{Curb Stomp|Battle}}s Ryusei and the SRX Team, culminating in the SRX being destroyed.
* WrongGenreSavvy
** In ''Alpha Gaiden'', when Ryusei learns there are [[Characters/MasouKishin four "Elemental Lords"]], he immediately asks Masaki if [[CombiningMecha they can combine]]; they don't.
** During a live-fire training exercise in ''Divine Wars'', Ryusei believes it's impossible for tanks to outmaneuver and down a HumongousMecha. He's disabled and shot down in a matter of minutes.

!!Raidiese Fujiwara Branstein (Voiced by RyotaroOkiayu)
[[quoteright:225:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rai.png]]
TheLancer to Ryusei's "beatdown first, question later" attitude, Raidiese ("[[InSeriesNickname Rai]]" for short) is the designated pilot of the R-2 and a crack marksman. Though the R-2's a heavy bombardment unit, in Rai's hands it becomes a menacing foe at any range, though Rai prefers to stay back to get the most use of its [[ShoulderCannon twin shoulder-mounted cannons]], leaving the melee for Ryusei. In ''Alpha'' and ''Original Generation'', Rai was a test pilot for the SuperPrototype "Huckebein" at mecha manufacturer "Mao Industries" on the moon. However, an error with the "Black Hole Engine" in the Huckebein leveled the facility: although Rai is one of three people to survive this "Vanishing Trooper Incident", his left hand is crushed during the accident, replaced with a prosthetic. Afterwards, Ingram drafts him into the the SRX Team and has been remaining there ever since.

Rai is the younger brother of [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsOriginalGenerationSteelDragonBattleGroup Elzam von Branstein]], whom he has a rocky relationship with: as an extension to his back-story for ''Original Generation'' Rai adored Elzam's wife [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsOriginalGenerationOthersAndWalkingSpoilers Cattleya Fujiwara]], but her death as a result of Elzam's decision-making led to Rai disowning his brother. He leaves the Branstein family after [[DeadGuyJunior taking Cattleya's maiden name]], swearing to get back at the family. He also informed cousin Leona Garstein should she cross his path in defense of Elzam and what he stands for, he will not hesitate and fight.

Rai initially comes across as the cold, calculating, stick-to-the-book soldier, but his interactions with the various characters causes his personality to change and loosen, though is still portayed as TheStoic. This cracks when he finds the man truly reponsible for Cattleya's death, causing him to go on a RoaringRampageOfRevenge, but nearly gets killed for it. Learning from his lessons, Rai starts to trust his brother more and together they kill the culprit. This marks the event where Rai finally makes peace with Elzam and himself.

Rai pilots the R-2 Powered and takes care of the Tronium Engine in the SRX, controling and maintaining its output. He embodies these tropes:
[[hardline]]
* AloofOlderBrother: {{Inverted|Trope}}; whereas the older Elzam (currently as "[[Characters/SuperRobotWarsOriginalGenerationSteelDragonBattleGroup Ratsel Feinschmecker]]") is occasionally goofy, Rai keeps the same demeanor throughout all apperances.
* ArtificialLimbs: Loses his left hand during the Vanishing Trooper Incident; at least he fares better than his AlternateUniverse counterpart in the Shadow-Mirror universe where [[spoiler:he's KilledOffForReal]].
* BadassNormal
** Every member of the SRX Team isn't by any means normal: Viletta's [[spoiler:an OppositeSexClone of Ingram]] and the rest are Psychodrivers, but Rai happens to be exceptionally skilled, it guarantees him a spot on the team. Following Ingram's FaceHeelTurn, Rai nearly gets the boot out of the R-2 by TheFederation, but he states so long as he's ''on'' the SRX Team, the machine's his to use. Whoo! Talk about {{Badass}}...
** Discussed between Rai and [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamCharsCounterattack Gyunei Guss]] during the fight near the "[[Anime/MobileSuitVictoryGundam Angel Halo]] " in ''Shin'': Gyunei asks Rai if he's a "Fortified Human" (which Rai knows nothing about), then demands to know how Rai [[TheStoic can be so calm when his life is on the line in this battle]]. Rai answers that calmness is only natural for a skilled pilot, the implication that Gyunei is afraid of fighting.
* BerserkButton: Watch him go batshit insane when he [[spoiler:finds [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsOriginalGenerationAntagonists Archibald Grims]] for the first time]] in ''Original Generation 2''.
* {{Bishounen}}: Doubles as InSeriesNickname - Excellen occasionally coins Rai as "Handsome".
* BodyguardCrush: Inverted; it's the other way around for [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsOriginalGenerationSteelDragonBattleGroup Princess Shine Hausen]] in ''Original Generation''.
* TheComicallySerious: Even in humorous scenes, Rai keeps up his stoic disposition.
* GetAholdOfYourselfMan: In ''Alpha 3'' to Ryusei during his HeroicBSOD. Parodied hilariously in a {{Yonkoma}} where Rai delivers it yelling "PROSTHETIC ARM PUNCH!!!" This fails as Ryusei's fanboy hormones activate.
* GiantRobotHandsSaveLives: In one episode of ''Divine Wars'', Rai rescues Princess Shine in this manner. He averts the usual illogicality of this trope by descending his Schutzwald at the same speed as she is.
* MistakenForGay: It turns out what Lu Cain during ''Shin'' is after is in the university database, which Ryusei plays off as just minor trespassing. Rai lambasts Ryusei's foolishness; when [[Anime/{{Gaiking}} Sanshiro Tsuwabuki]] weakly agrees, the dialogue awkwardly comes out that Ryusei has implied that Rai prefers men.
* NotSoAboveItAll
** Although Rai's the team's OnlySaneMan, he occasionally winds up falling for Ryusei's blunders. In ''Original Generation 2'', when Ryusei suggests Rai make up a new name for the HTB Cannon, he realizes he can't think of anything better.
** In Scenario 11 in the Earth Route of ''Shin'', Rai introduces himself formally after the battle, saying the aliens have been up to abducting people. Sanshirou has been eyeing Rai, wondering if he's another weirdo like Ryusei, but Rai stiffly asks him not to liken him to Ryusei, whom he considers the shame of the SRX Team. Sanshirou tells Rai about Ryusei's "self-proclaimed genius pilot" line of dialogue; after a brief moment, Rai acknowledges it's pretty much true. The others realize Rai, too, is somewhat off his rocker.
* NotSoStoic: Usually plays TheStoic, but then [[spoiler:Archibald shows up]] and all hell breaks loose.
* RingsOfDeath: R-2's "Beam Chakram" is a wired-guided variant
* RoaringRampageOfRevenge: Tries one as soon as he meets [[spoiler:Archibald Grims]] and almost gets him killed. He succeeds later on with his brother on his side.
* ShoulderCannon: R-2 Powered's "Hi-Zol Launchers" can fire in [[MoreDakka short, scattered bursts like machine-gun fire]] or as a WaveMotionGun.
* ShoutOut: In ''Original Generation Gaiden'', having been fed up with Rai complaining about his CallingYourAttacks, Ryusei demands Rai name the HTB Cannon. Rai answers with "[[SaintSeiya Galaxy Phantom Explosion]]".

!!Aya Kobayashi (Voiced by Creator/YumiTouma)
[[quoteright:225:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/aya_06.png]]
The 21-year old leader and captain of the SRX Team, Aya's the oldest daughter of Dr. Kenzo Kobayashi, head of Psychodriver research. Her Psychodriver powers are very strong and is the telekinetic key when they form the SRX. One of her hobbies is walking around art museums. She admires Ingram greatly and he was always nice to her, but was hurt the most by his FaceHeelTurn in ''Alpha'' and ''Original Generation''. During the final fight with Ingram, he tells her not to be bound by the past and start a new life for herself. Later, while fighting Levi Tolar, she realizes Levi is her younger sister Mai, whom she believed had perished years earlier during an explosion at their father's lab. While Levi is convinced in ''Alpha'' and joins the SRX Team, she is instead destroyed with her HumongousMecha Judecca at the "L5 Campaign" in ''Original Generation''. Post-L5 Campaign, Aya stays at the Far East "Izu Base" of the Earth Federation Army to cooperate in her father's research.

Aya gets into a nasty misfortune during ''Alpha 3'', where a fatal attack from Balmar general Hazal Gozzo strikes the SRX hard, seemingly destroying the R-3 Powered and is deemed KilledOffForReal. In truth, she's captured by Balmar and later used to demoralize the rest of the team, especially Mai, whose memories have fully returned. Thankfully, Aya is rescued aboard one of Balmar's 12 "Neviim" moons by defecting Balmar generals [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAlpha3 Baran Doban and Luria Kayitz]] and she rejoins the SRX Team with their new SRX Altered Banpreios.

Aya pilots the R-3 Powered, a flying, ranged support unit, whose specialty is to blanket an area with missiles with [[FriendlyFireproof 0% chance of hitting friendlies]] as they are guided by her Psychodriver abilities. The R-3 can also aim its "[[AttackDrone Strike Shields]]" with precision, also guided by her powers. Tropes associated with Aya:
[[hardline]]
* AnimalMotifs: In ''Shin'', Aya is a natural enemy of Ryusei - a cat to Ryusei's mouse. She figures that if she's a cat, she should at least be a Persian.
* BootstrappedLeitmotif: "Psychic Energy" was originally a map-based [=BGM=] in ''Shin'' until it became Aya's {{Leitmotif}}.
* DamageDiscrimination: R-3 Powered's "T-Link Missiles" don't hit friendlies in its area of effect, thanks to the user's PsychicPowers.
* TheGwenStacy: For a good amount of time in ''Alpha 3'' for Ryusei, whom he blames for Aya's supposed death.
* TriangRelations: "Type 7" in ''Shin'' between [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamCharsCounterattack Amuro Ray]] (A), Aya (B) and [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamCharsCounterattack Chen Agi]] (C). In a Space Route scenario, Amuro and Aya compliment each other on how swift they are in combat, while Chen glares at the two of them from hiding. In another Space Route scenario, Chen is pleasantly surprised when Amuro invites her to accompany him to the city.
* UnfortunateNames: Shares the same surname as [[Anime/MobileSuitZetaGundam Katz]] [[TheScrappy Kobayashi]]; one {{Yonkoma}} {{Lampshades}} this with Aya [[BerserkButton responding appropriately]].
* WeakButSkilled
** Out of the more notable ''Alpha'' Psychodrivers (Ryusei, Mai, Kusuha and Brooklyn "Bullet" Luckfield), Aya has relatively weaker PsychicPowers InUniverse and isn't as pronounced as theirs. However, given Aya's been raised since childhood to harness it, she's much more skilled with the power she has as shown with the Strike Shield weaponry, which require precise control, including keeping the SRX combined.
*** FridgeBrilliance: Aya has precision, but can't generate strong psychic power; Mai's the one with [[UnskilledButStrong outrageous power output, but needs decent control]].
** After smacking around numerous villains in a Space Route scenario in ''Shin'', the party is impressed at the SRX's abilities, but Amuro notes Aya is looking a bit pale from all the power she has to expel to keep the SRX together. [[Manga/GetterRobo Hayato Jin]] agrees to give them a day off; Aya later confesses to Amuro she is in fact an "Esper", apologizing for having mislead him earlier. She's not entirely thrilled with her powers, [[NotSoDifferent which Amuro can relate]].

!!Mai Kobayashi (Voiced by Creator/AiOrikasa)

[[caption-width-right:225:Mai as Levi Tolar]]
Aya's younger sister, Mai was presumed KilledOffForReal after an explosion years before at her father Kenzo Kobayashi's lab. With no memories of her past, Mai remains a very quiet, gentle girl. In ''Original Generation'', she appears six months after the L5 Campaign and is given medical treatment under Kenzo's care. Due to her exceptionally strong Psychodriver powers, Mai gets assigned to the SRX Team for learning purposes, and selected to be the pilot of the R-Gun Powered.

In ''Alpha'' and ''Original Generation'', the cause of the lab accident is due to the "[[Characters/SuperRobotWarsOriginalGenerationAntagonists Aerogaters]]" in secret: Mai was kidnapped, {{Brainwashed}}, and turned into one of the Aerogaters, taking the name "Levi Tolar", the self-proclaimed "Priestess of Judecca", piloting the mighty "[[GirlWithPsychoWeapon Judecca]]"; in either {{Continuity}}, she and Ingram challenges the SRX Team on multiple occasions. In ''Alpha'', prior to the final battle, Levi is convinced by the SRX Team of her origins, [[HeelFaceTurn aligning with them and defeating the Aerogaters]]. Although "Levi" is under scrutiny by the government and kept under surveillance, her memories as Mai fully return by the time ''Alpha 3'' occurs.

In contrast, Levi's memories as Mai reappears at the height of the L5 Campaign in ''Original Generation''. Unfortunately, she is presumably destroyed with the machine. Upon recovering the wreckage of the Judecca, inside its undamaged core lay Levi, unharmed but without her memories, reverting back to Mai prior to the lab explosion. Although Kenzo considers it a risk that Levi's personality could hijack Mai's fragile mind, he alters her memories to better sync with Aya to use the "Twin Contact" of the SRX's T-Link System to its full advantage in order to execute the HTB Cannon. Despite Levi attemping on multiple occasions convincing her to continue her mission as the Priestess of Judecca, Mai remains strong and adamant her place is in the SRX Team.

While Mai makes her debut in ''Alpha'', Levi appeared earlier in ''Super Robot Spirits'', serving as the FinalBoss of the game. Tropes associated with Mai/Levi are:
[[hardline]]
* BadBadActing, StylisticSuck: While her voice actor normally puts on an excellent performance, Mai's "Ryusei Impersonations" come in at ear-shattering volume and don't make a whole lot of sense.
* DualityMotif: Levi has has one red and one golden eye to match the Judecca's. Her eye color changes depending on {{Continuity}}, but also whether her Levi personality or herself as Mai is dominant. If it's the latter, it reverts back to a natural blue.
* EnemyWithin: In ''Original Generation 2'', festering elements of Levi goads Mai in her subconciousness to turn on her allies.
* FriendlyRival: To Latooni, with whom she shares a romantic interest in Ryusei.
* MeaningfulName: Keeping in line with Balmar's ThemeNaming, "Tolar" is a loose romanization of the word "Torah", meaning "the law" in Hebrew. "Levi" is one of the twelve tribes of Israel in the Old Testament and are designated as the priests, who were charge of the law, hence Levi being the Priestess of Judecca.
* PrecisionGuidedBoomerang: R-Gun's "T-Link Boomerang"
* LateArrivalSpoiler: Mai's subsequent appearances post-''Original Generation 2'' makes no effort in hiding she was once Levi.
* ShipTease: Really, when Mai gets an exclusive CombinationAttack with the AscendedFanboy whom she has a deep-seated crush on, where said attack is created by her ''rival'' for the fanboy's affection, major teasing occurs.
* ShoulderCannon: R-Gun Powered's "Hi-Twin Launchers"
* SplitPersonalityMerge: ''Alpha'' only - she's still Levi, but the positive personality traits of Mai are awoken by Ryusei causing her to turn {{Face}}. Levi gradually regains her memories as Mai, starts acting like her old self and eventually asks the rest of the team to start calling her Mai again, though she still remembers her time as Levi. In contrast, Levi in ''Original Generation'' is a seperate evil persona installed into Mai, who continues to haunt her in her dreams, who has little to no memories of her time as Levi.
* TalkingToHerself: Mai also voices [[Characters/MasouKishin Shiro]], one of Masaki's {{Familiar}}s. Taken to its logical conclusion in a save-quit intermission of ''Original Generations'' - Shiro talks with Mai (as Levi), who says the latter should start adding a "Nyan~" VerbalTic. She does, but performs miserably.
* ThemeNaming: Subversion; while "Judecca" refers to Judas Iscariot, the disciple of Jesus Christ who betrayed him, each of the Judecca's attacks ("Caina", "Antenora", "Ptolomea" and "Judecca") corresponds to a section of the ninth and lowest circle of hell in "Literature/TheDivineComedy".
* TookALevelInBadass: ''Original Generation'' provides one for Mai and Levi - in ''Alpha'', Levi is simply an underling for Laodicea Judecca Gozzo [[spoiler:and Euzeth Gozzo]], one fought - and bested - several times by Londo Bell. Every time she trades blows with Ryusei, her mental state destabilizes and ultimately the Judecca breaks apart from her powers going haywire. In ''Original Generation'', she is the leader of the Aerogaters and her powers are kept under control even when coming into contact with Ryusei and the Judecca is elevated to penulimate boss status.
* UnskilledButStrong: Unlike Aya, Mai's psychic output outclasses her; unfortunately, she has little to no control over the exact amount she generates. This serves as a counterbalance to Aya being WeakButSkilled.
* YoungestChildWins
** Variation: her Psychodriver powers are often stated to be stronger than Aya's. The fact Mai's part of the SRX Team in order to trigger the HTB Cannon makes it more obvious.
** This theory gets a boost when the Banpreios first appears and [[spoiler:shatters a pocket dimension Hazal Gozzo traps the "Alpha Numbers" inside]] in ''Alpha 3''. For the record, the only people piloting the Banpreios at this point are Rai (who isn't a Psychodriver) and Mai. Sure, the "Cross Gate" may have played a role in the moment, but the fact Mai can generate enough PsychicPowers to move a HumongousMecha that requires ''three'' Psychodrivers to normally pilot AND [[spoiler:break apart a pocket dimension]] says something about her abilities.

!!Ingram Prisken (Voiced by Creator/ToruFurusawa)
[[quoteright:225:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ingram.BMP]]
Commander of the SRX Team, Major Ingram Prisken is dedicated to the task of completing the "SRX Development Project" by recruiting Ryusei, Rai and Aya. Ingram rarely talks about himself and, like Rai, maintains a sense of composure and collectedness, but hides a slightly calculating side. Of note is Ingram comes from ''Super Hero Sakusen'' ("Super Hero Operations"), a SpinOff of ''Super Robot Wars'', where he is one of two selectable protagonists for the game.

Ingram is the first clone of the mass-produced "Balshem" series created by from the Ze Balmary Empire and known as the "Originator", with the codename "Aleph Balshem". He pulls a FaceHeelTurn on the SRX Team, revealing himself to be a spy sent by the Aerogaters to assess the strength of TheFederation. In ''Alpha and ''Original Generation'', Ingram and the SRX Team fight on multiple occasions following his turn, and while many cannot understand his actions at joining the enemy, in reality, Ingram's been manipulated by his Balmar masters into doing their bidding, though Ingram's will is strong enough such that he desires to break free from their control.

In ''Alpha'', Ingram's body is lost following the Aerogaters' defeat, but his influence over the powerful "Astranagant" allows his spirit to survive. By chance, when another Balshem clone scouts an area near the Cross Gate in ''Alpha 3'', the Astranagant appears from the interdimensional device and absorbs the clone's machine. Ingram's consciousness also takes over the pilot; instead, their souls fuse into an entirely different entity. From time to time, Ingram attempts to retake control and continue his work as a "Time Diver", one who exists to keep the balance of good and evil between dimensions.

In ''Original Generation'', Ingram's initial mecha is the Wildschwein, a succeeding variant of the Huckebein, but switches to the R-Gun until his FaceHeelTurn, where he mutates the machine using "Zyflud Crystals" into the "R-Gun Rivale", rather than use the Astranagant from ''Alpha'' (since it doesn't exist in this {{Continuity}}). Ingram has the following tropes:
[[hardline]]
* AttackDrone: Astranagant's "Gun Familiar" and R-Gun Rivale's "Gun Slaves"
* {{Catchphrase}}: "Dead End Shot"; [[spoiler:all of his clones would later inherit this]].
* ChestBlaster, SphereOfDestruction: Astranagant's "Infinity Cylinder" and the R-Gun Rivale's "Axion Buster"
* CommandRoster: TheCaptain, until he pulls a...
* FaceHeelTurn: Which starts to get complicated when he reveals he's TheMole and is the reason for this trope. However, it turns out he's actually a ''ReverseMole'' acting in the role of StealthMentor, because he never wanted to be TheMole.
%%* HalfIdenticalTwins: Only in ''Super Hero Sakusen''
* TheHerald: Takes on this role at the beginning of Ryusei's HerosJourney, though he ends up playing a few others down the line.
* IDieFree: Before he dies in ''Original Generation'', he expresses satisfaction that he isn't being controlled during this brief moment.
* LateArrivalSpoiler: Ingram being TheMole for the Aerogaters is not lost on most [=SRW=] fans, new and old, these days; it's what happens to him afterwards that is still considered a spoiler.
* MeaningfulName: "Aleph" is the numerical value of "one" in Hebrew, hence Ingram being the first of the Balshem clones.
* RedEyesTakeWarning: In ''Divine Wars'', during his FaceHeelTurn, Ingram reveals the R-Gun has GlowingEyesOfDoom in the guise of a [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rgun_eyes.jpg sinister red]].
* ShoutOut
** His name is derived from the RealLife "Ingram" machine pistol, while his surname is a likely reference to [[Film/EscapeFromNewYork Snake Plissken]].
** "Astranagant" is a composite word formed from the Spanish "Astra" and Belgian "Nagant" firearms manufacturers, respectively.

!!Viletta Vadim (Voiced by Creator/AtsukoTanaka)
[[quoteright:225:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/viletta.png]]
The new SRX Team Commander replacing Ingram on the SRX Development Project, Viletta holds the rank of Captain. With exceptional piloting skills, she is always able to judge cooly on the battlefield. Like Ingram, Viletta also comes from ''Super Hero Sakusen'' and is the second selectable protagonist (Ingram and Viletta are treated as the same character, regardless of gender, in ''Super Hero Sakusen'').

In actuality, Viletta is the fourth clone in the mass-produced Balshem series with the codename "Bet Balshem". In ''Original Generation'', Ingram sent Viletta as another spy for the Aerogaters to infiltrate the Earth Federation in order to gather data. However, following the final battle with the entity known as "[[Characters/SuperRobotWarsOriginalGenerationAntagonists Septuagint]]", Viletta confides with [[Characters/CompatiHeroSeries Gilliam Yeager]] her real name is "Viletta Prisken", created specifically from Ingram the Originator to act on his behalf once he becomes unable to do so of his own free will from the Aerogaters. Ingram created her before his mind was fully taken over, then sends her away to complete his will. She goes on to explain to Gilliam about the Ze Balmary Empire.

After the "L5 Campaign" against the Aerogators, Viletta permanently joins the Earth Federation Army. Alongside Gilliam and [[Characters/MasouKishin Lune Zoldark]], she is sent to investigate the abandoned Aerogater fortress "White Star", but is forced to retreat with the ''Hiryu Custom'' battleship when the "[[Characters/SuperRobotWarsClassic Inspectors]]" launch a surprise attack on their location.

In ''Alpha'', she uses the R-Gun Powered, but can use it as well in ''Original Generation'' (otherwise, she comes with an AceCustom "Gespenst"). She's back to the R-Gun in ''Original Generation Gaiden'', as Mai is in the ART-1. Viletta has these tropes:
[[hardline]]
* AcePilot: In a series where just about everybody's this trope, Viletta's noted to be one of the best female pilots.
* ActionGirl: Naturally, like all the rest of them.
* BirdsOfAFeather: It's subtle, but in ''Original Generation'', Viletta and Gilliam are this - both are sauve (in their own unique way), skilled pilots and have an air of mystery to them. If helps that Viletta confesses to Gilliam on her and Ingram's motives.
* CommandRoster: TheCaptain after Ingram defects
* CoolShades: In ''The Inspectors''
* EvenTheGirlsWantHer: When the [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsCompact2 resident]] MsFanservice in ''Original Generation'' [[IfItsYouItsOkay wouldn't mind if it's her]], she becomes this.
* EvilTwin: In ''Alpha 3'', [[spoiler:[[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAlpha3 Spectra McCready]]]] - she looks exactly like her, but with a perpetual scowling expression that screams ObviouslyEvil.
* FemmeFatale: Pretty much; the name of her {{Leitmotif}} says it all.
* MentorShip: A surprising number of people ship her with Ryusei; much of this stems from the time they spent off-screen in ''Alpha Gaiden'' training.
* OppositeSexClone: Of Ingram as a result of DivergentCharacterEvolution from ''Super Hero Sakusen'' into ''Alpha''
* ShoutOut
** The producers of ''Anime/CodeGeass'' must like ''Super Robot Wars'' enough to name one of its characters after her. To further the joke, they cast someone who lends her voice to another [=SRW=] character.
** Her name is a loose romanization of the RealLife Italian firearms manufacturer "Beretta".
* SternTeacher: Oh boy, is she strict on Ryusei; taken to a point where he compares her being nice to him as "the calm before the storm".

[[/folder]]

[[folder:Protagonists]]

In a similar vein to ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWars4'', ''Alpha'' continues and expands on the concept of a [[CharacterCustomization customizable]] [[FeaturelessProtagonist protagonist]]: players can rename the hero(ine) and their companion of the opposite sex with eight selectable portraits, blood types and birth dates, including four personality types influencing their in-game dialogue, voice in combat and whether they pilot a RealRobot or SuperRobot (the latter choice determines which series and units players meet first in a playthrough).

Unfortunately, this was such a developmental nightmare, as sequels would demand unbelievable {{Road Cone}}s to exist due to differentiating player choice, that Banpresto established in ''Alpha 2'' the "Kusuha Mizuha" and "Brooklyn 'Bullet' Luckfield" profiles are the canon heroine and partner of the ''Alpha'' series. With the exception of ''Alpha Gaiden'', the sequels switched to more static selectable protagonists, keeping Kusuha as the recurring option.

Tropes common to the ''Alpha'' originals are:
[[hardline]]
* AdaptationExpansion
** The hero(ine)'s back-story in ''Alpha'' was simpler with him/her being an OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent (who happened to be a latent-yet-powerful Psychodriver)[[note]]Or, in the non-canon Real Robot route, a work-a-day Federation Navy shuttle pilot[[/note]], until he/she is wrapped up in the "Balmar-Earth War" by accident. Of particular, Kusuha's personality traits for having a nurse-in-training background and infamous GargleBlaster are established in ''Original Generation'' when the ''Alpha'' originals are differentiated from one another with unique origins; these elements then [[RecursiveAdaptation folded back into her character]] when ''Alpha 2'' is released.
** Although Bullet may have learned to refine his sword techniques from Sanger in ''Alpha 3'', ''Original Generation'' extends this by having both become students under the tutelage of the same master, [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsOriginalGenerationSteelDragonBattleGroup Rishu Togou]].
** The notion Leona is a cousin to the Branstein brothers is an ''Original Generation''-exclusive trait: ''Alpha'' never took note of this, even if a pre-made Leona is the heroine. Once Elzam appears in ''Alpha 2'' and beyond as Ratsel, she is never mentioned at all.
* CanonName: ''Alpha'' had suggested profiles for each character, but the game didn't force any names (or details) onto players. Default names, personalities and what-not are later used to represent the possible protagonists in ''Original Generation'', while ''Alpha 2'' uses Kusuha and Bullet's names and traits as hard canon for the rest of the series.
* FeaturelessProtagonist
** Whoever the protagonist is in ''Alpha'' is very customizable: players can freely mix and match portraits and personality sets, choose a name and InSeriesNickname, birthdate and blood type to determine stats and pilots skills as they level, and "Spirit Commands". For those who know the characters through their ''Original Generation'' counterparts, this can lead to some comedic outcomes, such as [[HotBlooded Rio Mei Long]] speaking with Kusuha's shy, reserved voice or having Tasuku Shingugi's constant stream of nonsense come out of [[TheSpock Yuuki Jaggar's mouth]].
** The only restrictions placed on character creation are on the hero(ine)'s partner: they must be the opposite gender and have the "opposing" personality to the protagonist ("HotBlooded" <-> "ShrinkingViolet" or "TheStoic" <-> "TheTease"), likely a concession to ensure dialogue trees don't get out of control.
* PsychicPowers
** Whoever the ''Alpha'' protagonist is, he/she is a tremendously powerful, but untrained Psychodriver, with substantial precognitive, telepathic and telekinetic abilities. When ''Original Generation'' began CuttingOffTheBranches, all eight ''Alpha'' originals are Psychodrivers, though none of them are nearly as potent as the ''Alpha'' protagonist.
** What needs to be stated is Kusuha's ''Alpha'' counterpart is one of the most powerful [[{{Franchise/Gundam}} "Newtype"-styled psychics]] to exist in the setting: while she begins raw and untrained, she can eventually raise telekinetic barriers, engage in telepathic throwdowns with major villains without losing her mind and generally accomplishes psychic feats leaving characters like Amuro and [[Anime/MobileSuitZetaGundam Kamille Bidan]] in awe. [[spoiler:It's not all fun and games, however, since her misunderstanding of what she feels during a particular incident in ''Alpha 2'' leads her to believe Bullet is KilledOffForReal, which nearly [[HeroicBSOD mentally destroys her]]]]. By contrast, Kusuha in ''Original Generation'' has yet to showcase anything of this caliber.
*** For a specific example: at one point in ''Alpha'', Londo Bell has to assault the Angel Halo. Akira, Aya, Bullet and Ryusei try to counteract its psychic wave but slowly fail and everyone's on the verge of being mentally assaulted, at which point Kusuha gets ''really'' mad, her {{Leitmotif}} kicks in, and she counteracts the psychic wave and gives Maria and Shakti a psychic WhatTheHellHero speech at the same time. To emphasize: Kusuha goes up against 30,000 Newtypes ''at the same time, by herself'', and '''WINS'''.
** How much this trope applies to ''Original Generation'' varies between the eight: a fair bit of hay is made of Kusuha and Bullet's abilities since it allows them to pilot their HumongousMecha correctly (Ingram wanting to exploit Kusuha's powers after kidnapping her for the Aerogaters is an extended MythologyGag back to ''Alpha''). Likewise, Ryoto Hikawa is picked up by the "[[Characters/SuperRobotWarsOriginalGenerationAntagonists Divine Crusaders]]" in part for his talents. Conversely, Leona, Rio and Tasuku's abilities don't get referenced much, while Yuuki and Ricarla Borgnine's Psychodriver traits are relevant exactly ''once'' in ''Original Generation 2'' and [[GameplayAndStorySegregation are never touched again]].

!!Kusuha Mizuha (Voiced by Creator/MikakoTakahashi)
[[quoteright:225:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/kusuha.png]]
-->"''I'm not just some DamselInDistress waiting to be rescued!''"

The heroine of the ''Alpha'' series, Kusuha is the only protagonist to appear in all numbered ''Alpha'' games (''Alpha Gaiden'' has no protagonist at all). A nurse-in-training turned HumongousMecha pilot, her boyfriend's the easily flustered disciple of the ''Jigen-ryuu'' school of swordsmanship Bullet. Kusuha's usually a sweet, everyday girl who dislikes fighting, but is infamous for one thing: her health drink knocking out the toughest of men ([[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAdvance including an android]]). Only a few are unaffected, but it's usually a major source of terror from her otherwise {{Moe}} appearance.

In ''Alpha'', Kusuha is rendered more of a {{Badass}}, courtesy of the fact she has to pull a protagonist's weight. Although initially hesitant to fight (as her default personality in ''Alpha'' is "[[YamatoNadeshiko shy and quiet, but with a will of iron]]"), the universe throws so much crap at her she basically has no choice but to stand up and retaliate. This gets to a point where she often makes Bullet look like a JamesBondage by comparison (assisted by the fact the "partner" character in ''Alpha'' is the one who ends up in peril, thus he ends up in tons of trouble by default), although he usually comes back to the routine after they reunite in any given game.

In ''Original Generation'', she begins as Ryusei's UnluckyChildhoodFriend, but eventually falls for Bullet after a mock fight between the SRX Team and "ATX Team". Following Ingram's FaceHeelTurn, Kusuha is kidnapped by Ingram, BrainwashedAndCrazy to fight for the Aerogaters, but gets snapped out of it by Bullet. In ''Original Generation 2'', Kusuha is chosen to be the pilot of the "[=RyuOhKi=]" ([[TheFourGods based on Seiryuu]]), forming with Bullet in the "[=KoOhKi=]" into the "[=RyuKoOh=]", charged by the ''Choukijin'' ("Super Mechanical Gods") to fend off the "[[Characters/SuperRobotWarsCompact2 Einst]]". In ''Original Generation Gaiden'', Kusuha's one of the victims of the during the "[[Characters/SuperRobotWarsOriginalGeneration ODE Incident]]" and caught by the "Bartolls", but is luckily rescued with the "Aggressors". In the ''Second Original Generation'', she is thrown into "[[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsGaiden La]] [[BeneathTheEarth Gias]]" and fights alongside Lune and [[Characters/MasouKishin Hwang Yang Long]] to topple the ambitious [[Characters/MasouKishin General Kirkus Zan Valfarbia]]. Upon returning to the surface, the "[[Character/SuperRobotWarsOriginalGenerationAntagonists Garden of Baral]]" entangle Kusuha with their goal of turning mankind into immortals, at the cost of millions of lives. When the [=KoOhKi=] is captured by Baral, Kusuha is forced to use the "[=RyuJinKi=]" (composed of the [=RyuOhKi=] absorbing itself with a Grungust Type-3) until the former is retrieved to reform the [=RyuKoOh=].

As the chosen pilot of the [=RyuOhKi=], Kusuha is the primary pilot of the [=RyuKoOh=], her most famous and powerful unit. However, due to the inherent dangers and difficulties involved in the machine's use, Kusuha will typically [[BagOfSpilling switch to a Grungust]] (or any derivative/variant thereof) of some description when things are calmer (such as the start of a given game).

Tropes associated with Kusuha and her machines are:
[[hardline]]
* AceCustom: "Shin [=RyuKoOh=]" in ''Alpha 3'' is modeled to suit her combat style, being more focused on ranged, magical attacks and omitting the {{BFS}}.
* BadassAdorable [[BadassInDistress In Distress]]: Fortunately, her ''Alpha'' incarnation averts the "In Distress" part; even her current ''Original Generation'' counterpart is working towards fixing this as of the ''Second Original Generation''.
* BagOfSpilling: Kusuha has never been able to start using the [=RyuKoOh=] at the beginning of a game. No matter what, she (and Bullet) must use a different unit before everything gets sorted out with the ''Choukijin''.
* {{BFS}}: [=RyuKoOh=]'s ''Hazanken'' (localized as "Dragoon Blade"); she drops this in favor of a SimpleStaff for the [=RyuJinKi=] in ''Alpha 2''/''Second Original Generation'' and magic in ''Alpha 3'' for the Shin [=RyuKoOh=].
* CanonDiscontinuity: Certain aspects of ''Alpha'' and its game manual leans on her as the choice for heroine with Bullet as her partner by default, but if her profile is left completely unmodified, she would default to the real robot route of the game. ''Alpha 2'' establishes the super robot route from ''Alpha'' is the canon choice, and at no point in ''Alpha'' or ''Original Generation'' does she ever get to use a Huckebein unless players force her into one for the latter.
* {{Chickification}}: ZigzaggedTrope
** Averted in ''Alpha'' as Kusuha (being the protagonist) is usually the one who wears the pants in the relationship with Bullet, being the one bailing him out when he's in trouble, but played straight in ''Original Generation'' with Bullet rescuing her often. However, the ''Second Original Generation'' subverts it a la ''Alpha'' thanks in no small part to the ''Alpha 2'' storyline prominently taking the stage.
** She can also get this in the original ''Alpha'' if she's chosen as the ''partner'' rather than the protagonist since she essentially switches roles with Bullet[[note]]This may have also been the original intent with her; see Bullet's entry below[[/note]].
* CutsceneIncompetence
** In ''Original Generation'', when Ingram kidnaps her.
** This is particularly galling for ''Alpha'' players since "fight four-on-one" is less "a time to panic and get captured" and more "a typical day at work and an often-used strategy for farming experience" for ''Alpha''-verse Kusuha.
* DistressedDamsel: While the ''Alpha'' games [[ActionGirl avoids this entirely]], Kusuha will be kidnapped at least ONCE in every ''Original Generation'' installment - first by Ingram, second from [[spoiler:[[Characters/SuperRobotWarsOriginalGenerationAntagonists Lorenzo di Montenego and Murata]]]] and the GaidenGame had [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsOriginalGenerationAntagonists Wilheim von Juergen and the ODE System]]. The ''Second Original Generation'' repeats this during the "[[VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsEX EX]] Scenarios" when she, Bullet and Shine are held as hostages by the "[[Characters/MasouKishin Shutendonias Alliance]]" (she's not the first to get kidnapped; she only agreed to become a hostage because Shine was their prisoner first), but subverted upon receiving the [=RyuJinKi=]. Averted in the ''The Moon Dwellers'' - she doesn't get kidnapped at all.
* DoomedUpgrade: Subverted; in ''Alpha'', as she and Bullet are going to receive the Grungust Type-3 to upgrade from their Type-2, the villains find the Type-3 first and destroy it. The parts used to repair the [=RyuOhKi=] and [=KoOhKi=] that become the real upgrade are far more impressive than the Type-3. In ''Original Generation 2'', they receive the Type-3 first, but it's immediately crippled by the Einst until it's absorbed by the ''Choukijin'' to form the [=RyuKoOh=]/[=KoRyuOh=].
* {{Flanderization}}
** Of a "physical" attribute: in ''Alpha'', her bustline is admittedly ample, but not ridiculous. As the series progresses, it starts to grow to a point where it enters GagBoobs territory with new outfits to accentuate it. This becomes a sore spot - some players find it cute, while others deem it unnecessary, demeaning and distracting for a character who is otherwise treated with seriousness, especially in the sequels.
** Her health drinks have also gotten this treatment, though this is fed in part by the fandom: in ''Original Generation'', the concoction comes up as being disgusting and the crew finds ways to avoid drinking it. Come ''Alpha 3'' and the ''Original Generation'' sequels, it's treated as the most vile element in the universe, able to make men like [[Anime/GaoGaiGar Guy Shishioh]] and Sanger Zonvolt cringe in terror.
* FourTemperamentEnsemble: In the ATX Team of ''Original Generation'', Kusuha is the "Supine".
* TheFourGods: [=RyuOhKi=]; the Shin [=RyuKoOh=] in ''Alpha'' incorporates all four.
* GargleBlaster
** [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Her health drink]]: her friends run in terror if they see her offering it them.
** Subverted with LethalChef: Kusuha can cook normal food, namely a birthday cake in ''Alpha 3''; unfortunately, she tends to add her dreaded health drink ingredients. The reason why the cake isn't deemed lethal is because Bullet "accidentally ruined" the various ingredients.
** {{Irony}} ensues when the health drinks ''work as intended'': despite being bad enough to knock a grown man out with one sip, once they recover, they feel completely energized. That being said, the cast of ''Alpha'' and ''Original Generation'' will usually find excuses to duck out of the room whenever she brings in a drink tray: even the normally [[TheStoic poker-faced]] Kyosuke [[OhCrap mildly panics]] when she starts offering them out.
* IconicSequelCharacter
** Kusuha was created a full decade after [=SRW=] went into print, and Ryusei and the SRX Team are meant to represent Banpresto and the franchise, yet she's in the running for being the developer's favorite. Her competitors include Ryusei, Sanger (by proxy of {{Memetic Badass}}ery) and Masaki, one of two originals (the other being [[Characters/MasouKishin Shu Shirakawa]]) to edge her (and Bullet) out in number of overall appearances, thanks to the ''Masou Kishin'' games and ''Alpha Gaiden''.
** To put this into perspective, Kusuha has more overall merchanise - plastic model figures, posters, what have you - than any other [=SRW=] original, including the entire cast of some of the licensed properties she shares games with; other potential icons can't lay claim to half of what she has. Much of the existence of this merchandising is fed directly by raw fan demand.
* {{Kiai}}: Kusuha's version of the "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R5Z3DIbrtR0 Gespenst Kick]]"; interestingly, she is able to hold the last part of the scream for people to hear clearly. By comparison, Bullet and Sanger have been slipping lately, thus their {{Kiai}} sounds more reserved.
* KillItWithFire: [=RyuKoOh=]'s "Magma Vasarl"
* {{Leitmotif}}
** "Blue Blue Sky" by default; upon receiving the [=RyuKoOh=], ''Ware ni Teki Nashi'' ("None Can Oppose Me"; localized as "I Am Invincible!")
** ''Ano Aoi Sora e'' ("Towards That Blue Sky") for the [=RyuJinKi=] and [=GouRyu=] Kai, and ''Warera ni Teki Nashi'' ("None Can Oppose Us") for the Shin [=RyuKoOh=]
** "Cockpit of Steel", the theme for the Grungust Type-2, is often associated with her since it would be Kusuha's {{Leitmotif}} for much of ''Alpha'' if players select her and the super robot route; it's also "her" theme for the first ''Original Generation'' game, provided she's kept in the Grungust Type-2.
* TheMedic: It WAS her job, until she changed professions.
* OfficialCouple: ''Alpha'' and ''Original Generation'' make every point at showing how Kusuha and Bullet are made for each other, though their status is {{Downplayed|Trope}} in the latter series into BetaCouple due to the prominence of the Kyosuke/Excellen pairing.
* OffModel[=/=]EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: Kusuha is a little (in)famous for having a "weird" profile portrait in ''Alpha''. While everyone else in-game more or less resembles their character design (shown on this page), Kusuha's "profile" portrait used during the intermission story sections features a neck that's a little long, eyes a little too far apart, and the rendering on the eyes themselves look funny (seen [[http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v157/stalkeryik/Super%20Robot%20Wars/Mission%201/SS-20090829-170412.png here]]). Even stranger is the fact her small unit portrait is fine - it's her profile that's astoundingly odd. Corrected when ''Original Generation'' is released, becoming more on-model in successive installments.
* OverlyLongName: Not herself, but a running thing with ''Choukijin'' pilots (except Bullet) is they take CallingYourAttacks in long strings of ''kanji'' that quickly turn into this if one attempts to translate them.
* SecondLove: For Bullet after being the UnluckyChildhoodFriend to Ryusei in ''Original Generation''.
* ShoutOut: The Shin [=RyuKoOh=] is basically a HumongousMecha version of "[[Literature/JourneyToTheWest Sun Wukong]]": its extending staff is Wukong's ''Ruyi Jingu Bang'' while the Shin [=RyuKoOh=]'s strongest attack is based on the Celestial cauldron Wukong was placed in after his failed rebellion against Heaven.
* ShyBlueHairedGirl: At all times unless she's fighting an extraterrestrial threat or evildoers, to which she throws this out the door for HotBlooded yells.
* SuperPrototype: The [=RyuKoOh=]'s data is used to develop the [=GouRyuu=] in the ''[=RyuKoOh=] Denki'' manga. This becomes a base model for her AceCustom [=GouRyuu=] Kai at the start of ''Alpha 3''.
* TookALevelInBadass: In ''Original Generation'', Kusuha starts out a decent pilot, but prone to become a DistressedDamsel. When her storyline of ''Alpha 2'' comes into play, Kusuha takes a more active, {{Badass}} role, to a point where she's the one wearing the pants in her relationship with Bullet just like in ''Alpha''.
* TrueCompanions: She has a strong bond with the ''Choukijin''; to emphasize, in ''Original Generation Gaiden'', Kusuha makes it clear she isn't good at using a sword, yet she can use the [=RyuKoOh=]'s ''Hazanken'' effectively as a result of the PowerOfFriendship.

--> "''[[UnusualEuphemism I can read you like a book! A coloring book!]]''"

Kusuha's boyfriend dating back to the ''Alpha'' series, Bullet is a promising Psychodriver and pilot for the Earth Federation Army, and the default partner option for her. For this {{Continuity}}, Bullet behaves more of a JamesBondage, an unfortunate result of being pigeonholed into the partner role of ''Alpha'', thus he winds up in peril rather often (which becomes a small, memetic RunningGag by the ''Alpha'' sequels due to his archetype being "the HotBlooded hero who requires rescue"). For example, in ''Alpha 2'', after TheFederation declares the ''Choukijin'' too dangerous, he hides them away, but is BrainwashedAndCrazy into serving "the will of the Earth" until Kusuha snaps him out of it.

In ''Original Generation'', Bullet is a student of ''Jigen-ryuu'' and Sanger's junior-in-training under Master Rishu Togou. He's also one of the earliest members of Sanger's ATX Team, and unfortunately, thanks to being put with [[TheTease the extremely cheery Excellen]], ends up as the [[ButtMonkey butt joke of most of her antics]], and it doesn't help he's particularly shy around women, with a tendency to {{Nosebleed}}; not even the entrance of "newcomer" Kyosuke lets him avoid this. However, he does his job well enough he's assigned as the test pilot for the Huckebein MK II. Later, he meets Kusuha and falls in LoveAtFirstSight. When she gets kidnapped, he's deeply crushed he starts a fight with Ryusei, her childhood friend, about protecting her. She gets better after Bullet snaps Kusuha out of her BrainwashedAndCrazy stint during the "L5 Campaign" against the Aerogaters.

In the sequel, Bullet is chosen by the ''Choukijin'' to be the pilot of the [=KoOhKi=] (based on [[TheFourGods Byakko]]), forming with Kusuha in the [=RyuOhKi=] as pilot of the "[=KoRyuOh=]" and uses it to battle the sentient Einsts, as well as other extraterrestrial threats. In ''Original Generation Gaiden'', following the ODE Incident, he and Kusuha encounter a creature of the ''Youkijin'' ("Evil Mechanical Gods") who attacks them when they retrieve the ''Choukijin'' at the "Tesla-Leicht Institute" where they hibernate when not in use by the two. He's thrown into La Gias in the ''Second Original Generation'' along with Kusuha, fighting with Lune and Yang Long against General Kirkus before returning to the surface. Unfortunately, during their absence, servants of the Garden of Baral steal the [=KoOhKi=] and {{Brainwash}}es it under their servitude. Bullet takes on a more support role for the game until the [=KoOhKi=] is restored and the [=KoRyuOh=] is reformed.

Bullet's definitive mecha is the [=KoRyuOh=], the alternate transformation for Kusuha's [=RyuKoOh=]; essentially, when the unit transforms, Kusuha and Bullet switch primary and secondary seats. He embodies these tropes:
[[hardline]]
* AceCustom: According to a dialogue in ''Alpha 3'', the "[=RaiKou=] Kai" is originally an artillery-based mecha similar to the [=GouRyuu=] Kai, but the {{BFG}} is replaced by the "Shishiou Blade" per Bullet's request. The same goes for the "Shin [=KoRyuOh=]" in ''Alpha 3'' as it drops its previous melee weapons in favor of a sword.
* AlphaStrike: [=KoRyuOh=]'s "Tyrant Overbreak"
* BadassInDistress: His ''Alpha'' version, to the point of being memetic. His ''Original Generation'' counterpart has averted this so far.
* BladeOnAStick: [=KoRyuOh=]'s "Sonic Javelin"; however, the weapon's a misleading name as it resembles a Chinese ''guan dao'' than an actual javelin.
* ButtMonkey: Excellen goes out of her way to make him fluster on her jokes.
* ButNowIMustGo: In ''Alpha 2'', Bullet does this to hide the [=KoOhKi=] that's deemed too dangerous by the government.
* CanonDiscontinuity: Another interesting sort in ''Alpha'' - Bullet is actually ''the'' default protagonist for the first game. whenever a new playthrough begins, the first profile loaded is his, and if players head straight into the game without changing anything, it loads onto the super robot route with Kusuha as his partner. This implies Bullet was intended to be the default, canon protagonist of ''Alpha'' rather than Kusuha (this also makes certain elements of the first ''Original Generation'' game logical, such as Kusuha's constant DamselInDistress problems, since that's what happens to the character in the partner role in ''Alpha''), but Kusuha's popularity and Bullet's memeticness as her partner compelled Banpresto to switch their places in ''Alpha 2'', making the "obvious assumption" from ''Alpha'' no longer canon.
* TheComputerIsALyingBastard: A minor, yet possibly accidental example - by default in the first ''Original Generation'' game, [[MeaningfulName Bullet]] uses a RealRobot with a WaveMotionGun, but isn't a ranged-combatant and should be in a melee-based machine; players are better off sticking him in the Wildschwein or some other available, non-exclusive unit with a strong melee weapon. This tropes triggers by the fact it loves to stick Bullet back into the machine he's terrible with, making it feel as if the game clubs players over the head to get Bullet into a machine that isn't god-awful for him to use. Rectified in the sequels once the gets the [=KoRyuOh=].
* EveryoneCanSeeIt: When he first laid eyes on Kusuha in ''Original Generation'', he was instantly smitten; to date, he ''still'' denies that SheIsNotMyGirlfriend.
* EvilCostumeSwitch: During his BrainwashedAndCrazy stint in ''Alpha 2'' via MaskPower
* FightingWithChucks: [=KoRyuOh=]'s "Random Spike"
* FourTemperamentEnsemble: In the ATX Team, Bullet is the "Melancholic".
* HotBlooded: He has his moments in ''Original Generation'', though he's still learning to get there. More obviously so in ''Alpha'' as he's literally the default "male HotBlooded hero" protagonist/partner option. This is a good part of what fuels the memeticness around his role as a JamesBondage character as a character like him would be rescuing the DistressedDamsel, not the other way around.
* KatanasAreJustBetter: The Shishiou Blade for his Grungust Type-3 and Shin [=KoRyuOh=]
* {{Kiai}}: Like Sanger, he also gets his own "CHESTOOO!!!", especially fitting when he pilots a Grungust Type-3 equipped with a [[{{BFS}} gigantic Shishiou Blade]].
* KidSamurai
** Not to Sanger's level yet, but he's getting there. Interestingly {{Lampshaded}} by Master Rishu that Bullet may avert this one day as he's got more potential than Sanger and himself.
** In ''Alpha 3'', he directly receives training from Sanger himself (Master Rishu being absent in ''Alpha'') to improve his techniques.
* {{Leitmotif}}
** ''Original Generation'' gives him the Huckebein MK II's "Vanshing Trooper" as his default. Once he's paired with Kusuha, it becomes ''Ware Ni Teki Nashi'' upon upgrading to the [=KoRyuOh=].
** ''Shiroki Chihei Yori'' ("From The White Plains") for the [=RaiKou=] Kai and ''Warera Ni Teki Nashi'' for the Shin [=KoRyuOh=] in ''Alpha 3''.
* MeaningfulName: Subverted due to his name and how he often gets a WaveMotionGun-toting Huckebein obfuscates the fact he's a terrible ranged fighter.
* {{Nosebleed}}
** His usual reaction when it's about female areas.
** In the last episode of ''Divine Wars'', Bullet nosebleeds after seeing [[spoiler:[[Characters/SuperRobotWarsOriginalGenerationSteelDragonBattleGroup Lefina Enfield]] in a bunny suit]].
* OfficialCouple: ''Original Generation''-wise, he and Kusuha are the BetaCouple, but they are firmly this in ''Alpha''.
* OnlyKnownByTheirNickname: [[JustifiedTrope In his defense]], Bullet prefers people address him by this name.
* RocketPunch: [=KoRyuOh's=] "Tiger Knuckle"
* ShoutOut: One of Bullet's Gespenst Kick quotes is the exact opening dialogue of the radio show Tomokazu Sugita co-hosts.
* SuperPrototype: The [=RaiKou=] in the ''[=RyuKoOh=] Denki'' manga is developed via data taken from the [=KoRyuOh=]. This is used a base model for the [=RaiKou=] Kai in ''Alpha 3''.
* ThisIsADrill: How [=KoRyuOh=]'s Tryant Overbreak usually ends with a massive drill from its Tiger Knuckle. In ''Original Generations'', the attack forces the opponent underground, [[DiggingToChina drilling all the way to the Earth's core]].
* TrueCompanions: Just like Kusuha, Bullet has a strong friendship with the ''Choukijin''.

!!Leona Garstein (Voiced by Creator/YuiSakakibara)
[[quoteright:225:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/leona.png]]
18 year-old Leona represents the default female "cool and reserved" archetype in ''Alpha'' and is partnered with the default male "logical yet flirty" Tasaku. In ''Original Generation'', she is from a branch family of the Branstein clan, making her Elzam and Raidiese's cousin. Calm, prideful, and strong-natured, Leona graduates with top scores in her piloting classes and is employed by the "[[Characters/SuperRobotWarsOriginalGenerationAntagonists United Colony Corps]]" as part of the "Troye Unit", [[AmazonBrigade an elite, all-woman]] aerospace "[[AMechByAnyOtherName Armored Module]]" squadron. Although aligned with the Divine Crusaders, after the death of its leader [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsClassic Bian Zoldark]], Leona is persuaded to join the crew of the ''Hiryu Custom'' and assist in the defense of Earth Federation headquarters against [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsOriginalGenerationAntagonists Adler Koch]] and his renegade group of "[[TheRemnant Divine Crusaders Remnants]]".

After the war with the Aerogaters, she heads to the "Icarus Base" in the asteroid belt. Six months later, she rejoins the ''Hiryu Custom'' and returns to the Earth when the Inspectors arrive.

Leona currently belongs to the "Octo Squad", commanded by Katina Tarask, with her callsign as "Octo-4". While she appears to have a cold attitude, it's largely because of her constant worry for Tasuku. Although not a very good cook, this doesn't stop him from eating it, yet it frequently results in him fainting.
[[hardline]]
* AceCustom, MidSeasonUpgrade: Between the first ''Original Generation'' game and its sequel, Tasuku redesigns her "Guarlion Custom" into the new "Siegerlion".
* AcePilot: Her talents are so highly recognized [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsOriginalGenerationOthersAndWalkingSpoilers Doctor Marion Radom]] is opposed to having a [[ForceField telekinesis field]] via the T-Link System built into the Siegerlion simply because Marion believes Leona's won't get hit anyway.
* AmazonBrigade: Was TheDragon of the Troye Unit to its commander [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsOriginalGenerationAntagonists Julia Heinkel]]
* BadassInDistress: After being summoned to La Gias in the ''Second Original Generation'', Leona is captured by the "[[Characters/MasouKishin Cult of Volkruss]]" and nearly sacrificed for their EvilGod until Lune and her ''Hiryu Custom'' allies rescue her.
* DualWielding, GunsAkimbo: Siegerlion's "Blade Railguns"
* HugeGuyTinyGirl: Mecha variation - Leona's Guarlion Custom and eventual Siegerlion is about a quarter the size of Tasuku's Giganscudo. [[http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/gigan_guarlion_sizecomparision.jpg This image]] from ''Divine Wars'' illustrates the difference perfectly.
* {{Kuudere}}: Few bits of it here and there; she being of BlueBlood might have something to do with it.
* LethalChef
** Not quite on Kusuha's level, but unlike her cousin Elzam, perhaps cooking is not a Garstein forte.
** It's due to her weird sense of taste: when she cooks something she thinks tastes awful, everyone else will like it and vice versa. Excellen, being GenreSavvy, tells her to cook what she thinks tastes completely awful, then give it to Tasuku. His opinion is that it's the best food he's ever tasted, to her shock and embarassment.
* {{Leitmotif}}: "Treue" (German for "loyalty")
* SmoochOfVictory: Gives Tasuku an off-screen kiss following an "EX" scenario in the ''Second Original Generation'' after rescuing her from the Cult of Volkruss.
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: Is it "Siegerlion" or "Sieguarlion"?
* TheStoic
** Leona certainly keeps her "cool"; even the happy-go-lucky Tasuku can do little to faze her.
** Funny enough, Tasuku IS the only one who can break that stoic exterior, but only if they're alone.
* WaveMotionGun: Siegerlion's "Sonic Acceleration"; though it initially appears to be a form of RammingAlwaysWorks (as this attack is an off-shoot of the Guarlion Custom's "Sonic Breaker"), the target is obliterated at close-range by the Siegerlion extending its "Break Field" into this trope.

!!Tasuku Shinguji (Voiced by Creator/KappeiYamaguchi)
[[quoteright:225:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/tasuku.png]]
A mechanic aboard the ''Hiryu Custom'', Tasuku was unable to pass the "[[AMechByAnyOtherName Personal Trooper]]" pilot physicals for a variety of reasons (one of which implies he's a "wet noodle"). An optimistic person, Tasuku loves to have fun and always tries to test his fate out on the battlefield. Though he has quick reflexes, his attitude can make him occasionally tone deaf, but this is offest with him being skillful at juggling enemies around.

During the "[[CivilWar Divine Crusaders War]]", when the ''Hiryu Custom'' is attacked by the United Colony Corps, Tasuku wishes to help out when they are ambushed during an attack. Seeing the old, unused "Giganscudo" in a part of the battleship's hangar, he scuttles into the machine and sorties out to fend off the attackers. Upon learning the truth of why the Giganscudo is sealed away, and the death and misery it has caused before he becomes its pilot, Tasuku decides to stick with the unit so he can atone for its "sins". Six months after the L5 Campaign, he returns to the Earth with the ''Hiryu Custom'', now pilot of the newly upgraded "Giganscudo Duro", and officially part of the Octo Squad, with the callsign Octo-3.

Worth noting is in his debut in ''Alpha'', Tasuku is the male option for the "logical, yet flirty" archetype. He'll frequently flirt with women, whether they're fighting alongside him or against him, thus much of this character trait is what leads Leona to join the ''Hiryu Custom''. His logical side comes into play later in ''Original Generation'' when he designs and implements an upgrade to Leona's Guarlion Custom into the Siegerlion, making use of her Psychodriver abilities to power its WaveMotionGun.

Unlike most Psychodrivers, Tasuku's PsychicPowers often manifests itself as absurd luck: in ''Original Generation'', if Tasuku deals the destroying blow to Leona's Guarlion Custom in a certain scenario, he's able to render it immobile without crushing it, despite the large difference in size and speed between his Giganscudo and her Guarlion. At other times, this "luck" is turn into a GameplayAndStoryIntegration as the character-exclusive "Lucky" pilot skill.
[[hardline]]
* AlternateSelf[=/=]EvilTwin[=/=]EvilCounterpart: The "Giganspada" of the Shadow-Mirror - more accurately, the Giganspada is the Giganscudo's original form, who fought the Inspectors in the Shadow-Mirror universe instead of the Aerogaters. Since there was no need to remodel it into a humanoid form as it was never damaged in the first place, the government decided to mass-produce it. Effectively, the Giganspada is a more offensive-based SuperRobot, while the Giganscudo is defensive.
* AnchorsAway: Giganscudo Duro's "Seize Anchors"
* TheBlacksmith: Tasuku personally redesigns Leona's custom Guarlion into the Siegerlion with only a little help from Marion on the T-Link System. In reality, Marion's help is mainly getting through the red tape to ''acquire'' the T-Link System, not to actually install it, because she feels Leona doesn't need it.
* BornLucky: Like Arado, Tasuku also has the innate "Lucky" pilot skill; unlike Arado, it's not required to advance his story.
* BroadStrokes: In ''Divine Wars'', Tasuku's already a pilot in the Octo Squad during the "Antarctic Incident". He also uses the Giganscudo much later than he does in the games, acquiring the mecha during the final showdown with the United Colony Corps. Unfortunately, like the games, his first sortie in the Gigan results in a close encounter with the business end of Sanger's {{BFS}} that [[PutOnABus sidelines him for a while]]. In an interesting twist of fate, [[spoiler:Tasuku's the one who deals the death blow to [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsOriginalGenerationAntagonists Tempest Hawker]] in the "Valsion Custom" during the Divine Crusaders' LastStand in Geneva, Switzerland]].
* ChestBlaster: Giganscudo's "Wide Blaster"
* HugeGuyTinyGirl: Mecha-wise, the Giganscudo is a whopping 70.3 meters tall and weighs a little over 450 metric tons (487, once upgraded to the Giganscudo Duro). By contrast, Leona's Guarlion Custom's only 19 meters tall and her Siegerlion's about 21 meters tall, both weighing in at around 30-31 metric tons.
* IdiotHero: Somewhat; he carries a few undertones, but doesn't reach the moronic levels Arado's better known for.
* {{Leitmotif}}: "Gan! Gan! Gigan!"
* LightningBruiser: Normally, most players wouldn't think of switching out Ryoto for Tasuku in the Huckebein MK III Boxer, but players who love swapping characters into other mecha will realize Tasuku's a beast in the machine and practically outperforms Ryoto with it.
* LuckilyMyShieldWillProtectMe: Giganscudo's "Seize Shields"
* MeaningfulName: Giganscudo, Giganspada and Giganscudo Duro are Italian for "giant shield", "giant sword" and "hard giant shield", respectively.
* MidSeasonUpgrade: Interestingly done during gameplay in ''Original Generations'' with the Giganscudo Duro - [[spoiler:when the ''Hiryu Custom'' is ambushed by a Neo Divine Crusaders squad led by Murata, Tasuku takes the brunt of a [[{{BFS}} Shishiou Blade]] from Murata's Guarlion Custom "Mumyou". The Gigan's Seize Shields are busted up, so he tells the ''Hiryu'' to launch the Seize Anchor module, purges the shields and attaches the anchors to form the new Duro]].
* RescueRomance: At least until the ''Second Original Generation'' during an "EX" scenario where Leona is kidnapped by the Cult of Volkruss after being summoned to La Gias. [[SmoochOfVictory The scenario even ends off with her giving Tasuku an off-screen kiss]].
* ShoutOut: There's a chance Tasuku will yell out "''Choukusetsu Shuda Ryusei Kyaku''" when he uses the Gespenst Kick. It's the same-named technique used by [[Manga/RanmaOneHalf Ranma Saotome]]; incidentally, Creator/KappeiYamaguchi voices Ranma.
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: His name may occasionally be spelled as "Task" in some part of the Internet due to the way the "-u" syllables are sometimes used to simulate consonants in katakana.
* StoneWall: Giganscudo's one of the slowest playable units (excluding battleships) with a base movement speed of 5 and some fairly strong attacks. However, the machine's true capabilities lie in its high armor rating and Tasuku's natural "Support Defend" pilot skill[[note]]Pilot can provide defensive support to an adjacent ally[[/note]].
* ThePowerOfLove: Of the eight ''Alpha'' personalities, Tasuku's the only male who gets the "Love" Spirit Command[[note]]Gain the effects of the "Accelerate", "Strike" (Gain 100% accuracy for one turn), "Alert" (Successfully dodge the next attack), "Valor" (Deal twice the amount of damage for the next successful attack), "Spirit" (Increase Will by 5), "Gain" (Earn twice the amount of experience points) and "Luck" (Earn twice the amount of credits) Spirit Commands for one turn[[/note]] in ''Original Generation''.

!!Ryoto Hikawa (Voiced by Creator/YumikoKobayashi)
[[quoteright:225:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/ryoto.png]]
Scouted by the Divine Crusaders as a Burning PT gamer with the potential of becoming an Armored Module pilot, Ryoto lacked the willingness to kill and the mindset the position demands. Not willing to chalk him up as a complete loss, they sortie him against the ''Hagane'' battleship and its defenders, when in the middle of combat, the engine to his "Lion F" fails (much to his surprise as he has an affinity with machines and personally maintains his Armored Module). He's captured and taken aboard the ''Hagane'' when his Lion that is to follow suddenly detonates; fortunately, it isn't hauled into the hangar.

It turns out his Divine Crusaders superiors planted a bomb in his Lion and deliberately rigged the engine to fail, knowing the Earth Federation Army intents to capture a complete Armored Module, and decided to get rid of a liability at the same time. Once this is pointed out to Ryoto, his views on the Divine Cruaders changes; understandably shaken, he affirms his resolve and decides to fight against them, and joins the ''Hagane''. While not the most aggressive pilot on the roster, his natural skills coupled with his Psychodriver abilities help the Earth Federation Army end the Divine Crusaders War, and he stays aboard the ''Hagane'' to battle against the Aerogaters.

Following the L5 Campaign, Ryoto requests to be transferred to Mao Industries to work as a mechanical designer and engineer. For the next few months, he becomes the lead designer for the next iteration of the Huckebein, resulting in the "Huckebein MK III". As the Inspectors begin their occupation of the White Star and the lunar facilities of Mao industries, Ryoto hastily leaves with his allies and re-joins the ''Hagane'' as part of its maintenance crew/reserve pilot, bringing along the Huckebein MK III and new "Wild Wurger". He returns to full piloting duties by ''Original Generation Gaiden''. At the end of the ''Second Original Generation'', Ryoto becomes a membe of the new "PTX Team" lead by [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsClassiC Irmgard Kazahara]].

Ryoto began life as one of the default protagonists in ''Alpha'', specifically the SpearCounterpart of Kusuha, the "shy, polite and quiet" character archetype. In ''Original Generation'', his family owns a karate dojo and is quite skilled in the art, as Rio discovers first-hand. Throughout his appearances, Ryoto is the pilot of the "Armorlion", but beginning with ''The Moon Dwellers'', he is relegated into one of two new "[=EXbein=]" for the PTX Team.
[[hardline]]
* BewareTheNiceOnes: Ryoto might not carry a BerserkButton the likes of which Rai has, anyone pushing him too far and he'll ensure they get the short end of a cruel beating; that, and he's a black belt in karate.
* {{BFS}}: A variation with the Huckebein MK III's Boxer frame - it transforms into one, but rather than wield it, the MK III uses it like a surfboard.
* TheBlacksmith: In ''Original Generations'', the Armorlion's built by Ryoto using his partially destroyed Lion F given by the Divine Crusaders and strengthening it with Gespenst MK II and Alt Eisen spare parts. Additionally, he's one of the head mechanical designers behind the Huckebein MK III.
* CaptainErsatz: Is viewed as a psuedo-clone of [[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion Shinji Ikari]], except Ryoto [[TookALevelInBadass takes levels of badass]] in canon and develops the balls to prove it. His karate and mechanical skills seem to come from a mix of Kamille Bidan; following ContinuityReboot, tidbits of [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamSEED Kira Yamato]] are thrown in.
* CrossdressingVoices: Ryoto's the only male ''Alpha'' protagonist voiced by a woman.
* IKnowMortalKombat: Drafted into the Divine Crusaders for being a talented Burning PT player.
* {{Leitmotif}}: "Right and Kind"
* MechaExpansionPack, MetaMecha: The "Gunner" and "Boxer" frames for the Huckebein MK III, respectively
* MythologyGag: InUniverse, the Boxer frame was originally going to be the "R-Sword", a seperate unit like the R-Gun to be used for the SRX since ''Alpha'', but the idea was scrapped because development for the SRX was nearly complete. The Boxer ends up relegated as a frame for the MK III.
* {{Otaku}}: Averted; he doesn't openly flaunt this side of himself as much as Ryusei does, but mechanical expertise is his go-to forte.
* SpearCounterpart: To ''Alpha'' Kusuha since they share a character archetype. ''Original Generation'' makes no real effort to contrast the two or even have them interact much.
* SuperPrototype: Due to the Huckebein MK III getting ExiledFromContinuity in ''The Inspectors'', Ryoto gets the exclusive [=EXbein=], the InUniverse prototype of the intended MK III scrapped by TheFederation. Like the MK III, it can also use the Boxer and Gunner frames; this is repeated in ''The Moon Dwellers''.

!!Rio Mei Long (Voiced by Creator/RioNatsuki)
[[quoteright:225:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rio_8.png]]
Debuted as one of the possible protagonists in ''Alpha'' (as the female "HotBlooded hero" archetype), Rio appears in ''Original Generation'' as a bridge operator on the ''Hagane''. Her father [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsOriginalGenerationOthersAndWalkingSpoilers Yuan Mei Long]] works for Mao Industries as its director. After pleading with Major Ingram for a shot on the piloting roster, she is welcomed as [[NewMeat a fresh rookie]] to help the battleship on its mission to assault Divine Crusaders headquarters, which is already short-handed on pilots after the Divine Crusaders War begins. On her first mission, Rio encounters Ryoto, a Divine Crusaders pilot later captured when his Lion F is disabled. Although she distrusts him his prescence aboard the ship and sees him as a rival, as the war progresses, Rio slowly begins to understand his plight little by little. After the L5 Campaign, she joins Mao Industries as a test pilot for the Huckebein MK III project (mainly so she can be closer to Ryoto). When the Inspectors seize Mao Industries, Rio returns to formal piloting duties, this time as the pilot of the "AM Gunner". She re-joins the ''Hagane'' as an operator/back-up pilot during the ODE Incident in ''Original Generation Gaiden'', but once the [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsCompact3 Shura]] arrive on Earth, Rio relegates to her full-time piloting duties again.

Sometime before ''The Moon Dwellers'', Rio is draft into PTX Team with Ryoto, and is the pilot of the second [=EXbein=].
[[hardline]]
* ChineseGirl: Subverted; has the look and the name, but [[AllThereInTheManual according to the databook]], she's Korean.
* ClingyJealousGirl: Not that Ryoto's chasing around girls, but Rio doesn't like it when his attention's turned away from her.
* DistaffCounterpart: To ''Alpha'' Bullet - both share the common archetype with shades of this retaining in ''Original Generation''.
* HotBlooded: Moreso than Ryoto; it's the core of her character as an option in ''Alpha'', and carried over substantially into ''Original Generation''.
* {{Leitmotif}}: "Justice Girl"
* MechaExpansionPack: Beginning in ''Original Generation 2'', Rio's canon unit becomes the AM Gunner frame for the Huckebein MK III.
* TheRival: Of the "one-sided" kind - Rio sees Ryoto as this, which makes him see her as weird. A bit of a MythologyGag surrounding the ''Alpha'' originals, where the protagonist's LoveInterest begins as the friendly rival; as the game progresses, the chosen character wins him/her over.
* ShoutOut: One of Rio's battle quotes in the ''Second Original Generation'' is "''Aku! Soku! Dan!''", a reference to the similarly named "''Aku! Soku! Zan!''" by [[Manga/RurouniKenshin Saitou Hajime]].
* {{Tsundere}}: It's subtle, but she's a Type B.

!!Yuuki Jaggar (Voiced by Creator/MitsuakiMadono)
[[quoteright:225:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/yuuki_3.png]]
Representing the default male "cool and reserved" archetype in ''Alpha'', Yuuki appears in ''Original Generation 2'' as a member of the Neo Divine Crusaders. However, ''Divine Wars'' reveals he joined the Divine Crusaders earlier, suggesting he is among its first batch of recruits when the Divine Crusaders War begins. Parts of his back-story involves him participating in the faction's attempt at defending San Diego from the Aerogaters where he unknowingly rescues Carla. During ''Original Generation 2'', Yuuki and Carla are assigned to Archibald Grims' Neo Divine Crusaders unit and is briefly the superior officer of the unit composed of himself, Carla, Arado and [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAlpha2 Seolla Schweizer]]. Yuuki constantly attempts to convince Carla to abandon the Neo Divine Crusaders, but she stubbornly refuses, [[IOweYouMyLife believing she owes her life to Yuuki for having saved her]].

For the initial part of ''Original Generation 2'', Yuuki develops a short-lived rivalry with Bullet, but following their integration with the crews of the ''Hagane'' and ''Hiryu Custom'' after "Operation Plantagenet", they're on good terms. He is currently serving aboard the ''Kurogane'' battleship alongside Ratsel and Sanger.
[[hardline]]
* BullyHunter: Yuuki [[BerserkButton hates seeing weak getting pushed around]]. In ''Original Generation 2'', [[spoiler:he deliberately sabotages Archibald's plan to use citizens in the "Dukedom of Riksent" as leverage against the ''Hagane'' and Federation forces. Players can even have Yuuki deal the killing blow against Archibald should they choose the "Earth Cradle" route in the game]].
* CaptainErsatz: Compare the "Laz Angriff" to the [[Anime/FangOfTheSunDougram "Dougram" with a turbopack]].
* CulturedBadass: See SpotOfTea entry
* EarlyBirdCameo: In ''Divine Wars'', during the Aerogater attack on San Diego, Yuuki's shown leading a small Divine Crusaders regiment.
* GuysSmashGirlsShoot: GenderInvertedTrope - the Laz Angriff is heavily armored and its weaponry is largely comprised of long-ranged ballistics and ordinance. Yuuki's stats are tailored to specialize in accuracy and evasion.
* JerkassFacade: His attitude in ''Original Generation 2'' makes him look like a JerkAss except he's got a set a rules that blatantly subverts him being an [[PunchClockVillain antagonist]]; naturally, this is what pulls his HeelFaceTurn. In fact, over the course of the game, he becomes more likeable.
* {{Leitmotif}}: "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UXWhvaXpolQ Believe in our Bonds]]"
* MoreDakka: A standard Laz Angriff sports a folding bazooka, small knife, one handheld missile launcher, two remote missile pods and a fixed missile battery. Yuuki's "[[MidSeasonUpgrade Laz Angriff]] [[MechaExpansionPack Raven]]", by comparision has the following.
** Drops the folding bazooka and missile launcher, but keeps the knife, missile pods and missile battery
** Brings back the shield the Laz Angriff had in ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWarsAdvance''.
** Adds a "Tesla Drive" for flight, two folding {{Shoulder Cannon}}s, [[MacrossMissileMassacre a large missile containers on the back, several smaller missile pods on the wings]] and an underarm [[FrickinLaserBeams laser cannon]].
* SpearCounterpart: To Leona - TheStoic, [[LightningBruiser fast and efficient combat styles]], [[SavvyGuyEnergeticGirl vivacious]] {{Love Interests}}s and a tendency to downplay their respective partner's advances.
* SpellMyNameWithAnS
** His surname causes a bit of debate - "Jaeger" is sometimes proposed in place of "Jaggar".
** A particularly odd example for his mecha: in the localization of ''Original Generation 2'', Creator/{{Atlus}} rendered the Laz Angriff's name as "Rathgrith", the name of the ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWars64'' original mecha the Laz Angriff [[{{Expy}} is based on]]. MeaningfulName ensues as Rathgrith is based on same-named {{Valkyrie|s}} in Myth/NorseMythology; in ''Original Generation'', the Laz Angriff is "Type-34" of the [[AMechByAnyOtherName "Valkyrie" series of mecha]] (non-related to the "Valkyries" in ''Franchise/{{Macross}}'')
* TheSpock: Mixed in with ArbitrarySkepticism - despite being a Psychodriver, Yuuki has a hard time believing in extraterrestrials, monsters and all of the weird occurrences showing up in ''Original Generation 2'' (despite aliens having been proven in the previous game), so much so when directly confronted, he opts to drop a LogicBomb rather than accept it wholesale. Archibald, of all people, calls him out on this.
* SpotOfTea: A tea connisseur, and unlike Archibald, he uses actual tea leaves rather than tea bags. HilarityEnsues in the ''Second Original Generation'' when he drinks a cup of tea served by [[Characters/MasouKishin Tytti Noorbuck]], unaware ''[[SweetTooth she already put six sugar cubes in it]]''...

!!Ricarla "[[InSeriesNickname Carla]]" Borgnine (Voiced by Creator/RicaMatsumoto)
[[quoteright:225:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/carla_7.png]]
The female "[[GenkiGirl logical, yet flirty]]" archetype character in ''Alpha'', Carla makes her appearance in ''Original Generation 2'', serving in the Neo Divine Crusaders alongside Yuuki. With a prior dream of becoming a professional dancer, it is cut short when in the ''Divine Wars'' adaptation, she's seen fleeing the Aerogators during an attack on San Diego, losing her family in the assault. Presumably, she is rescued by Yuuki, although he vehemently denies he ever did such a thing. Still, this incentive is enough that she follows him and joins the Neo Divine Crusaders soon afterwards. Unlike Yuuki, Carla's more jovial and kind, often addressing him affectionately as "Yuu". This comes to a head when given a choice to leave the military post-Operation Plantagenet, she makes the decision to stay, despite his insistence. As of the ''Second Original Generation'', Carla is also part of the crew of the ''Kurogane''.
[[hardline]]
* AmbiguouslyBrown: Carla's surname implies she is of Italian descent, but her dark complexion and hometown of San Diego[[note]]Which, in RealLife, has a large Latin American population and is adjacent to the Mexican border[[/note]] implies she may have Hispanic origins.
* BrokenBird: Her back-story in ''Original Generation''; fortunately, it doesn't [[AngstWhatAngst weigh her down]].
* CaptainErsatz: Compare the "Randgrith" to a "[[Anime/ArmoredTrooperVOTOMS Scopedog]]".
* DanceBattler: Played with; putting Carla in a machine meant for melee combat will have her blurt out dance jargon in her combat dialogue. For example, when using the "[[SuperPrototype Wild Wurger L]]" and its "Victim Beak"[[note]]"Raptor Wings" in the English localization[[/note]] attack, Carla might say "[[UnusualEuphemism It builds to a crescendo...A CRESCENDO OF PAIN!]]".
* DistaffCounterpart: Of Tasuku - [[GenkiGirl easy-going]], [[StoneWall similar combat traits]], [[SavvyGuyEnergeticGirl stoic]] {{Love Interest}}s and [[ArsonMurderandJaywalking a green headwear]].
* EarlyBirdCameo: Gets two in ''Divine Wars'' - once during the Divine Crusader's initial declaration of war and again during the Aerogater attack on San Diego.
* {{Foil}}: To Kusuha - contrast Carla's [[ShesGotLegs shapely legs]], StoneWall attributes and [[FieryRedHead out-going persona]] against Kusuha's [[BuxomIsBetter ample buxom]], [[LongRangeFighter long-ranged offense]] and [[ShyBlueHairedGirl demure attitude]].
* GuysSmashGirlsShoot: [[GenderInvertedTrope Inverted]] and played with - like the Laz Angriff, the Randgrith is also an armored unit with long-ranged weaponry, but Carla's high defense stat allows her to absorb more damage than other characters, to wit she's endowed with a natural "Support Defend" pilot skill. Carla benefits the most by using machines designated to be [[StoneWall a tank]].
* LatinLover: Is about as flirtatious as Tasuku and persistent in trying to win Yuuki's affections. {{Lampshaded}} if she's using the Huckebein Boxer.
--> "Love and {{super|Robot}}s both require guts!"
* {{Leitmotif}}: "Dance and Brace"; prior to ''Original Generation Gaiden'', [[BootstrappedLeitmotif she shared Yuuki's]] {{Leitmotif}}.
* MeaningfulName
** Randgrith is based on "Randgrid", the name of another {{Valkyrie|s}} in Myth/NorseMythology; in ''Original Generation'', the Randgrith is "Type-30" of the "Valkyrie" series of mecha.
** Carla's name in ''katakana'' is "カーラ" (pronounced as "Ka-ra"); the Valkyrie "Kára" in Myth/NorseMythology means "the wild, stormy one", reflecting Carla’s zesty nature.
* MoreDakka: Not as much as Yuuki's Laz Angriff Raven, but the "[[MidSeasonUpgrade Randgrith]] [[MechaExpansionPack Raven]]" adds two folding {{Shoulder Cannon}}s and a large railgun to its standard armament, alongside a Tesla Drive for flight.
* MsFanservice: [[InvokedTrope Tries to be this]], but gets {{overshadowed by|Awesome}} [[MsFanservice other girls]]. Her flirty demeanor and [[ZettaiRyouiki stocking clad]] [[ShesGotLegs legs]] qualify; hell, one of her Gespenst Kick quotes in the in the Gespenst MK II Type-S, "美脚で勝負!"[[note]]"I challenge you with my sexy legs!"[[/note]], {{Lampshades}} it.
* OnlyKnownByTheirNickname: Virtually no one uses Carla's full name in ''Original Generation''. The only one who ever does is [[spoiler: [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsOriginalGenerationAntagonists Van Vat Tran]] (but only in the Japanese version), right before his HeroicSacrifice when he orders Yuuki and Carla to join up with the ''Hagane'' and ''Hiryu Custom'']].
* ThePowerOfLove: Out of the eight ''Alpha'' personalities, Carla is one of two females who have the "Love" Spirit Command in ''Original Generation''.
* RescueRomance: Forms the crux of how Carla and Yuuki first met in ''Original Generation''
* RedheadedHeroine
** FieryRedhead: More [[GenkiGirl out-going]] [[RedOniBlueOni to contrast]] with [[ShyBlueHairedGirl Kusuha]], but her HotBlooded side emerges during combat.
** DarkskinnedRedhead: The only character of Latin American descent in ''Original Generation''
* ShoutOut: One of her quotes when performing the Gespenst Kick is "[[{{Pokemon}} GETTO DAZE]]!". Rica Matsumoto is the voice actor of [[Anime/{{Pokemon}} Satoshi]].
** MetaCasting: Aspiring actress, dancer and singer Ricarla Borgnine is voiced by Japanese actress/singer Rica Matsumoto, whom the latter dubbed for the role of Selena Quintanilla-Pérez in the [[Film/{{Selena}} 1997 biopic]] where Music/{{Selena}} was portrayed by Puerto Rican actress/singer Creator/JenniferLopez.
* SpicyLatina: Played with - though more [[GenkiGirl bubbly]] and {{nice|girl}} than a straight up example, Carla's HotBlooded side seeps out the moment [[LetsGetDangerous she steps into the cockpit]].
* StoneWall: Her defense stat is high enough to match or even surpass Tasuku and [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsOriginalGenerationSteelDragonBattleGroup Russel Bagman]].
* SubordinateExcuse: Yuuki's the only reason she stays with the Neo Divine Crusaders.
* TokenGoodTeammate: Played with; none of the ''Kurogane'' crew are "evil" per se (though they are former enemies-turned-allies of some form or another), but Carla's the only person who isn't a stoic loner. As a result, she's usually the one to deal with talking to prisoners or sent on social errands.
* ZettaiRyouiki: She dons a yellow pair of Type A's

!!Robert H. Ohmiya (Voiced by Takuya Kirimoto)
[[quoteright:100:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/rob.png]]

The lead mechanical designer behind the SRX Development Project in ''Alpha'' and ''Original Generation'', Robert H. Ohmiya ("[[InSeriesNickname Rob]]" for short) created the blueprints behind all of the R-Units. A close friend of [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAlpha2 Filio Presty]] and Kirk Hamill, Robert's also the developer of the Burning PT MechaGame in ''Original Generation'', the same video game that gets Ryusei drafted into the military. Like Ryusei, he also [[{{Otaku}} shares a love]] for HumongousMecha.

!!Kirk Hamill (Voiced by Yuuto Kazama)
[[quoteright:225:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/kirk_8.png]]

Director of the development department of Mao Industries, Kirk Hamill is Robert's close friend. In his back-story for ''Alpha'' and ''Original Generation'', during testing of the first Huckebein, an error in the machine's Black Hole Engine leveled the facility. Kirk is one of three survivors of this Vanishing Trooper Incident, the others being Rai and Irmgard. Despite the event, Kirk continues building the Huckebein line and is later requested by Robert during the final phases of the SRX Development Project for help.

In ''Original Generation'', alongside his ex-wife Marion Radom, Kirk is part of the team behind the first Personal Trooper, the Gespenst. Despite no longer working with Marion following their divorce, he still assists her with other projects, such as developing the Wild Wurger and Wild Falken.
[[hardline]]
* ToiletSeatDivorce: Kirk sees benefits in "Extra-Over Technology", tech created from materials found from "Meteor-3" and used for machines such as the SRX and Huckebeins, but Marion doesn't. In fact, it doesn't help Kirk's case since he nearly got killed ''because of'' Extra-Over Technology installed in the Black Hole Engine.
* WorkingWithTheEx: Fortunately, it's on good terms with Marion.

!!Doctor Kenzo Kobayashi (Voiced by Creator/{{Mugihito}})
[[quoteright:225:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/kenzo.png]]

Father to Aya and Mai, Kenzo Kobayashi is the head of the Earth Federation's department on telekinetic research. In ''Alpha'' and ''Original Generation'', Kenzo created and designed the T-Link System. Yukiko Date, the first recorded human Psychodriver, was the first test subject for the system, but in hopes to advance his research, he opted to use his daughters. Unfortunately, a mysterious lab explosion ends up with a missing Mai, presumed to be KilledOffForReal, forcing Kenzo to focus on his research with Aya only. He continued to improve on the T-Link System in order to roll-out the eventual SRX against the Aerogaters. When Ingram is revealed as an Aerogater mole, Kenzo is placed into Federation custody after suspicion arose he was conspiring with Ingram. The charges are dropped eventually in either {{Continuity}} and Kenzo returns to his duties and research.
[[hardline]]
* MadScientist: Zigzagged; while an uncommon heroic example, Kenzo expresses the things he has done ForScience are atrocious and not without consequence, such as [[spoiler:not telling Mai about her Levi persona still active within her mind]] in ''Original Generation 2''.

!!Eri Anzai (Voiced by Rie Saitou)
[[quoteright:225:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/eri_9.png]]

An archeologist working with the Tesla-Leicht Institute, Professor Eri Anzai's research has taken her to the mysteries surrounding the ''Choukijin''. Like the SRX Team, Eri makes her debut in ''Shin Super Robot Wars''.
[[hardline]]
* AlienAbduction[=/=]DamselInDistress: In ''Shin'', Eri is kidnapped by the Ze Balmary Empire because of her vast knowledge on the ancient Mu civilization. No item confirming the existence of these people ever comes to light, but Balmar sure seems convinced. [[TransferableMemory They even go so far as to digitize all of Professor Anzai's research data plus her brainwaves]], despite the fact even Eri herself has no clear idea of where the Mu might have dwelt.
* FirstNameBasis: By [[Anime/{{Gaiking}} Professor Daimonji]] in ''Shin''
* HeroicBSOD: Played for laughs in ''Shin'' - Eri almost faints at the loss of a cave that may have held cultural value following a fight between the party, Lu Cain and Master Asia.
* HotScientist
** Professor Anzai is the world's foremost expert in ancient relics and is famous for advancing the notion the [[AncientAstronauts Mu and Atlantean cultures are founded by aliens]] in ''Shin''. When rescued by the protagonists, they note Eri is such a stunning beauty even Professor Daimonji's jaw drops.
** Carries into ''Original Generation 2'': upon meeting her, Irmgard asks for her phone number, but Eri isn't aware of the implication and hands him her office number.

!ZE BALMARY EMPIRE

The main antagonists of the ''Alpha'' series, the Ze Balmary Empire is an intergalatic hegemony situated on their homeworld of "Balmar". The Balmarians invade other worlds for their [[YouWillBeAssimilated modus operandi of capturing enemies]] and {{Brainwashing}} them into servitude and military expansion. However, those of the elite class would rather clone themselves to ensure the survival of their lineage. Some, in fact, work for their own agenda. The Balmarians are ruled by a literal "[[PhysicalGod god]]", who takes on the form of the "Spirit Emperor". In ''Alpha'', the fleet led by Admiral Laodicea Judecca Gozzo, codenamed the "Aerogaters", is but one of seven Balmarian fleets, each headed by a Gozzo admiral. On the homeworld, the "[[PraetorianGuard Golar Golem]]" protect the Spirit Emperor, but also serve as the military's elite forces.

Tropes regarding the Ze Balmary Empire and their members:
[[hardline]]
* BugWar: It's said that Balmar always begin their invasions with hordes of bug-like "Megillot" drones.
* ColorCodedForYourConvenience: Each of the seven fleet admirals have different hair colors
* CloningBlues: A majority of their troops are clones, using the genetic material of the Gozzo family.
* EvolvingWeapon: The "Zfylud" is capable of taking on different forms, growing ever larger. Demonstrated well by "[[Characters/SuperRobotWarsOriginalGenerationAntagonists Septuagint]]" in ''Original Generation'', which is composed of Zfylud Crystals.
* {{Leitmotif}}: "Arrow of Destiny" for the Aerogaters
* MaskPower: All cloned {{Mook}}s in the military and members of the Gozzo family (sans [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAlpha3 Ace Gozzo]]) will always wear one.
* QuirkyMinibossSquad: The Golar Golem and the fleet admirals in ''Alpha 3''
* SeriesMascot: Unquestionably for [=SRW=] villains - between their central importance throughout the ''Alpha'' series, their first appearance in ''Shin'', Levi debuting in ''Super Robot Spirits'' and their billing as the top antagonists of ''Original Generation'', any time someone says "villains in an [=SRW=]", chances are players will immediately think of them first.
* SpaceJews: Balmar's FanNickname due to their ThemeNaming.
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: Particularly prone to it due to the vagaries of representing Hebrew ''and'' Yiddish in katakana; a few of them are ''still'' debated almost a decade later ("Zfylud"/"Zehirut" being the most common point of contention).
* VirginSacrifice: [[spoiler:Balmar princesses are sacrificed to fuel the Spirit Emperor's power]].
* VestigialEmpire: In spite of their threat level, Balmar has been in decline for the past centuries - by the end of ''Alpha'', two of its fleets are destroyed (one at the hands of the Londo Bell, another by the "[[Anime/{{Gunbuster}} Space Terrible Monster Crowd]]"). In the span of a few months, they lose another two off-screen. In ''Alpha'', the Campbellians and Boazans are conquered by Balmar, but shortly regain their independence and wage war against them. Finally, during ''Alpha 3'', Balmar is being bombarded by meteor showers and the Alpha Numbers chew through the remaining three fleets (two of them ''simultaneously''), sending troops to the surface of Balmar (which has never happened before) to not only confront and defeat the Spirit Emperor, but almost every other Balmar political figurehead, rendering them leaderless and scattered by the end of the game.
* YiddishAsASecondLanguage, ThemeNaming: Mostly Hebrew and Hebrew-related literature

!! Laodecia Judecca Gozzo (Voiced by Creator/ShowHayami)

* BigBad, FinalBoss: Of ''Shin'' in the Space Route
%%* BigBadWannabe: ''Alpha''
* DeadAllAlong: [[spoiler:The real Laodeica was KilledOffForReal ages ago when he fought the [[Anime/SuperDimensionFortressMacross Zentraedi]] in ''Alpha''. The one leading the Aerogaters is a clone created by Euzeth]].
%%* DroppedABridgeOnHim
* HumansAreWarriors: Discussed between Laodecia and Lu Cain in ''Shin'' - Laodecia says Lu Cain's father Gresco was proven right in that humanity's fighting ability is beyond reckoning. What's more, the tougher the challenge, the more they stand up to it; in short, aliens are making the humans stronger.
* LoveMakesYouCrazy: Inverted in ''Shin'' with Laodecia on the receiving end from [[Anime/MobileSuitVictoryGundam Fuala Griffon]] due to PetTheDog.
* OrcusOnHisThrone: Played with; Laodecia does little to drive the plot in ''Shin'' - Lu Cain leads the villains in the Earth Route with Master Asia and the [[Anime/MobileFighterGGundam Devil Gundam]] interfering here and there, while [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamCharsCounterattack Char Aznable]] is the headlining antagonist for the Space Route until he is defeated. When Laodecia steps up to fight the Londo Bell, it turns out the [[AceCustom Zyflud]] has the most {{Hit Point}}s of any boss for the route and can even put a hurting on the SRX.
* PetTheDog: In ''Shin'', Laodecia finds a capsule with a weakened Fuala inside, who he orders to be tended to. This causes Fuala to become loyal to the Balmarians' cause.
* SealedEvilInACan: In the UsefulNotes/SegaDreamcast version of ''Alpha'', [[spoiler:[[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAlpha3 Shiva Gozzo]] sealed Laodecia into the Zyflud Crystal in Euzeth's fleet as a failsafe in case Euzeth betrays Balmar. When he does, Laodecia awakes, kills Euzeth and becomes the TrueFinalBoss of the game instead of Euzeth]].
* SpikesOfVillainy: The Zyflud is covered with spike-like Zyflud Crystals.
* WhiteHairBlackHeart: Primary antagonist of ''Shin'' and ''Alpha'' with silver-toned hair.
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: As Levi is the leader of the Aerogaters in ''Original Generation'', there's no indication whether Laodicea even exists in this {{Continuity}}.
* VillainousBreakdown: During the final Space Route scenario in ''Shin'', Laodecia starts disbelieving this is happening to him, thinking this is a nightmare he'll wake up from as soon as he returns to the ''Hermodr'' battleship when the vessel fires its WaveMotionGun and reduces him to particles.

Due to the nature of the following character(s), spoilers are unmarked to avoid redundancy.

!!Euzeth Gozzo (Voiced by Creator/RyuzaburoOtomo in ''Alpha'', Creator/KenjiNomura in ''Divine Wars'' and the ''Second Original Generation'')
[[quoteright:350:http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/Euzeth_Gozzo_TV_Tropes_350x270_8231.gif]]
[[quoteright:350:[[caption-width:350: "[[ManBehindTheMan That was me as well]]"...or ''[[Memes/VideoGames Sore mo watashi da]]'']]]]
[[quoteright:350:[[caption-width:350:[[labelnote: Click here]]http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/b2450000.png[[/labelnote]] to see his original appearance from ''Super Hero Sakusen'', later reused for the ''Second Original Generation'']]]]

The primary antagonist of ''Super Hero Sakusen'' and ''Alpha'', Euzeth Gozzo is the creator and genetic basis for Ingram (in ''Super Hero Sakusen'', Euzeth is also Viletta's creator, as the two cannot co-exist in that game). In the former, Euzeth was a human scientist willing to go to any lengths to save the Earth from humanity's environmentally destructive tendencies. As the BigBad, Euzeth uses data collected on the various technologies present (''Franchise/KamenRider'', ''Series/{{Ultraman}}'' and ''Anime/MobileFighterGGundam'', among others) to produce the "Chojin Zest", an Ultraman-like HumongousMecha serving as the FinalBoss. He along with the Chojin Zest are defeated by the SRX's first use of the Hyper Tronium Buster Cannon.

In ''Alpha'', Euzeth is the Balmarian [[TheDragon second-in-command]] of Laodicea's Aerogater fleet. Like his ''Super Hero Sakusen'' counterpart, Euzeth is a brilliant scientist who created the "Cross Gate Paradigm System" for interdimensional travel and multiple mobile weapons such as the "Antenora" and Judecca. In the final battle of ''Alpha'', Euzeth reveals the original Laodicea was killed in combat against the Zentraedi long ago, and the Laodicea defeated by the Londo Bell is but one of many clones under Euzeth's control. He enters battle in a black-colored Judecca equipped with a Cross Gate, alongside an entourage of several Zfyluds, each piloted by a Laodicea clone, and Ingram in the Astranagant as the FinalBoss of ''Alpha''. Euzeth also reveals his ultimate plan is not the invasion and subjugation of the Earth, but to bring about the destruction of the Balmar homeworld itself, a plan that later comes to fruition in ''Alpha 3''. Despite his behind-the-scenes scheming, Euzeth is defeated and the Cross Gate used by his Judecca is left intact beyond Earth space.

Euzeth also makes an appearance in ''Divine Wars'' by commandeering Ingram's body and using the Septuagint to continue his work, but is defeated by the Earth Federation Army. He also makes a cameo during the prologue to Ryusei's route in ''Original Generations''. Finally, Euzeth reappears in the ''Second Original Generation'', this time as [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsOriginalGeneration Arteil Steinbeck]], in a role mirroring his position as the BigBad of ''Super Hero Sakusen''.

The following tropes apply to Euzeth throughout his [=SRW=] appearances; for tropes pertaining to his identity as Arteil, go to "Walking Spoilers" [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsOriginalGenerationOthersAndWalkingSpoilers here]]:
[[hardline]]
* AceCustom: Chojin Zest from ''Super Hero Sakusen'', a black-colored Judecca from ''Alpha'' and the Adamatron from the ''Second Original Generation''
* AllAccordingToPlan: Zizagged - Euzeth may have planned for his own demise within his calculations in ''Alpha'', but subverted in the ''Second Original Generation'' as he didn't account for [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAlpha2 Irui Gan Eden]] meddling within the Adamatron.
* BigBad: Of ''Super Hero Sakusen'', ''Alpha'' and the ''Second Original Generation''
* CatchPhrase: ''Sore mo watashi da'' ("That was me as well")
* TheChessmaster: Euzeth {{manipulat|iveBastard}}es the heroes and villainous factions, including the one he is working for, into fighting each other in all appearances, guiding them towards his goals.
* CoolMask: A constant motif he uses in all appearances when he steps up to become the BigBad or whenever he commands a Balmarian fleet.
* DimensionalTraveler: Thanks to the Cross Gate Paradigm System; he can even summon [[Characters/MasouKishin Volkruss]] and the ''Youkijin'' from parallel dimensions in the ''Second Original Generation''.
* EvilOnlyHasToWinOnce: Under the condition he is able to remember everything (see below) and no one interferes, Euzeth can learn from his mistakes to help him remove any possible, disadvantageous elements.
%%* EvilSoundsDeep: Especially in ''Alpha''.
* FallenHero: Possibly; in ''Alpha'', Euzeth helps Ingram investigate the source of a disturbance in the universe. When it turns out to be [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAlpha3 Keisar Ephes]], whom the Balmarians once worshipped, [[GoMadFromTheRevelation he doesn't take it well]].
* GreaterScopeVillain: Of the ''Original Generation'' {{Continuity}}; by the ''Second Original Generation'', he no longer holds this position since he decides to directly confront the Steel Dragon Battle Group, whom he predicted will complete his plans he set in motion during the previous games.
* MadScientist: Given the nature he works within the setting, creating powerful weapons and devices for his mechs, utilizing the know-how from several civilizations, to gain the upper hand against his adversaries.
* ManBehindTheMan: In ''Alpha'' and the ''Second Original Generation'', Euzeth is behind the dozens of interweaving plots, manipulating heroic and villianous factions for his gain. The constant use of his CatchPhrase as a response to all questions asked about events that occurred became so memetic in Japan following ''Alpha'', [[{{Imageboards}} the mecha board of 2ch]] was named after his CatchPhrase.
* MesACrowd: A unique take - any time Euzeth dies, most of his experiences and memories stay intact in the form of "void memories" from the previous "[[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kalpa_%28aeon%29 Kalpic cycle]]" of TheMultiverse. Euzeth can resurrect himself by possessing his counterparts from different universes, including their clones. This explains the lingering AdaptationInducedPlotHole regarding why he appears in ''Divine Wars''. Note that Euzeth fails to possess the ''Original Generation'' Ingram (since he's Arteil for this setting), [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAlpha3 Cobray Gordon]] (as the ''Alpha'' Ingram already did it) and Ing. However, Euzeth requires special means to unlock his void memories; without it, he only has fragments. {{Lampshaded}} in the ''Second Original Generation'' upon regaining his void memories from uncountable past universes.
--> "...the Wheel of Lost Memories... connecting with the fragments of void memories...the true form of my soul...I understand...where I come from...who I was...[[ContinuityNod Zelphart...Zyflud...Zest...Judecca]]...after these....As the new Adam, Metatron...in other words, "Adamatron" becomes my true body."''
* MotiveDecay: Euzeth's plans to subvert fate brings him to several incredibly complex steps where even he doesn't fully understand during his future incarnations until they are pulled off. After he regains his void memories, Euzeth becomes so delusional with power, he decides to undo all reality and recreate it in his own image.
--> "[[AGodAmI I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the End and the Beginning]]. I no longer need to know the cause. I am no longer bound by to the past by causality, fate, void memories or my own ancient lamentations. Not to the foolish Emperor[[note]]Keisar Ephes[[/note]], the Inspectors or even the gods. None have the power to stop me. [[OmnicidalManiac I will annihilate all that is tied to me]], create untold new worlds and establish the new status quo. I will construct a new causality, fate, and cycle of rebirth. As the (Kalpic) cycles pass, I will become the creator of a new mankind...the new Progenitor."
** {{Lampshaded}} mercilessly by characters in the ''Second Original Generation'': Euzeth's plan is no different than what other villains have attempted to do in past events, but at less omnicidal proportions (minus [[Characters/CompatiHeroSeries Dark Brain]] and [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsDestiny Perfectio]]).
-->'''Excellen''': "Your bragging is at a larger scale than I expected."
-->'''[[Characters/SuperRobotWarsAdvance Axel Almer]]''': "Hmph, I kept quiet and listened to your ranting, but you're pretty much planning to destroy the universe."
-->'''Kyosuke''': "Such a simple goal, after such a long-winded speech."
* MrExposition: Particularly in the ''Second Original Generation'' - upon regaining his previous memories, Euzeth goes on a long speech about his plan that expands over multiple dimensions.
* MyDeathIsOnlyTheBeginning: Thanks to his void memories, which serve him as his mnemonics.
* SpannerInTheWorks: Namely Irui, [[Characters/SuperRobotWarsOriginalGenerationAntagonists Lee Linjin]] and {{Iron|y}}ically Ing with the former two's help in the ''Second Original Generation''.
* TheStarscream: To Balmar and later fate itself
* ThanatosGambit: Not that he has a choice in this matter, but Euzeth can exploit it as long as he can regain his void memories in a new kalpic cycle.
* ThisCannotBe[=/=]VillainousBreakdown: His defeat in the ''Second Original Generation''.
-->'''Euzeth''': "Unthinkable...Am I to suffer the same fate again...it's impossible."
-->'''Kyosuke''': "Again? You mean to say you've already fought people like us and they did the same thing to you what we're doing now?"
-->'''Euzeth''': "..."
* WellIntentionedExtremist: In ''Super Hero Sakusen'', Euzeth desires to stop the enviromental destruction humanity brings over the planet. Arguably, the same also applies to ''Alpha'' and the ''Second Original Generation'' as his long-term plans involve overcoming causality, fate and the ever-repeating kalpic cycle.
* XanatosGambit: Even if Euzeth is defeated, he will get another chance in another setting and universe.
* YouCannotFightFate: {{Irony}} ensues because regardless of the setting, Euzeth is destined to die at the hands of the heroes and/or killed by those whom he betrays. May or may not double as CosmicPlaything.
