Juusenshi Gulkeeva (Japanese: 獣戦士ガルキーバ; also known as Juu Senshi Garukiba, Wild Knights Gulkeeva or Beast Warriors Gulkeeva) is a 26-episode anime series produced by Sunrise that premiered in 1995. The main furry characters are the "beast guardians" Greyfus the wolf, Beakwood the eagle, and Garriel the gorilla, who fight along with the human Touya Shinjou to protect Earth from an enemy known as the Darknoids.The series also has an accompanying manga and set of novels that further explains the world of the Gulkeeva characters. Notes made while reading the first novel can be found online.
Wild Knights Gulkeeva provides examples of the following tropes:
Forgotten Fallen Friend: If you're not a main character, Touya and the Beast Warriors aren't gonna remember you after you die. Just ask Onimaru and Shiori, whose deaths are forgotten immediately after the episode they die in ends.
Karmic Death: After getting stabbed by Dora Yoma, Gil pathetically crawls over to his gun and clutches it in his hands. Suddenly, a bunch of soldiers show up and see Gil holding the gun with a pile of dead bodies in front of him. The soldiers assume Gil killed them, and waste no time gunning him down.
What Happened to the Mouse?: What happened to Lem's girlfriend? She showed up for about thirty seconds, said nothing, and then disappeared from the entire show. Note: Lem has no girlfriend. He only wanted to make Yun jealous, thereby making her powerful enough with her anger/sorrow to trigger the last point.
