The Otarangers (JP) / The Otaku Rangers (EG)

LBXs: The Bibinbird-X (Birdbrain-X) line

  • Accidental Misnaming: Every time they meet, Ban initially calls Otared by the alias he used in the first Artemis tournament, "Yujin" ("Eugene" in English).
  • Brainwashed and Crazy: Otasilver in W #28.
  • Five-Man Band: They're very clearly trying to be one, although they may have missed their marks by a little. For example, Otayellow is obviously supposed to be The Big Guy, although he's not so much strong as he is just plain fat.
  • Otaku
  • Large Ham
  • Lethal Joke Character: Otared is the first guy to hand Daiki his own ass.
  • Sentai: Or at least pretending to be.
  • Sixth Ranger: In Danball Senki W, we are introduced to a pair of American Otarangers - Otasilver, a blonde bombshell who likes to partially unzip her jumpsuit to show off her cleavage, and Otagold, a Token Minority black guy whose helmet is too small to fit on his head.
  • "Super Sentai" Stance: They like to do this at every possible opportunity - even when riding an escalator. It tends to get increasingly silly each time. Plus Otayellow keeps screwing it up.
  • Wrong Genre Savvy: In multiple genres, ranging all the way from Sentai to Dating Sim, no less.

Yamano Junichiro (JP) / Jon Yamano (EG)

LBX: Masquerade J
Voiced by Fuminori Komatsu

  • The Atoner: The whole plot of the first series is basically him trying to make sure that his creation won't be misused by Innovators.
  • The Chessmaster: Has shades of this with how he plans for his LBX to be sent for the relevant users.
  • Creator Backlash: In-universe in W.
  • Disappeared Dad: Not his fault, though it seems that he is still often away from his family one year later in W.
  • Gadgeteer Genius: He creates amazing gadgets. Sadly, they can be used for bad things.
    • Heroic B.S.O.D.: The result. He created Detector just to take down the LBX authority.
  • Large Ham: In his Masked J persona.
  • Paper-Thin Disguise: His Masked J act in Artemis. Ban didn't completely recognize him but Yuusuke figured it out immediately.
    • Then utterly subverted in W. He was freaking Detector the whole time!

  • The Chosen One

  • Flung Clothing: Towards the end of the first chapter of his game, Danball Senki W , his clothes start coming off one by one due to the destruction at the mall in the following order;
    • 1) His pants due to a rogue shot accidentally hitting his belt buckle.
    • 2) His shoes as he falls down an escalator with his pants open.
    • 3) His backpack as he's trying to grab on to something.
    • 4) Both his shirt and T shirt at the same time due to accidentally colliding with a sharp point on a rock. This leads to a Shirtless Scene.
    • 5) Finally his glasses also come off and are broken

  • Otaku: Not as much as the Otarangers, but not quite a Contrasting Sequel Main Character either.

Dr. Mummy/Hiyama Mami (LBX: Zeus)

Voiced by Hiroki Tochi/Chiyako Shibahara
A mysterious LBX engineer who created Killer Droid, an anti-LBX weapon. Covered in bandages and confined to a wheelchair, its suggested he suffered major burns all across his body. Although his true identity was originally thought to be Hiyama Ren, aka Lex, it turns out to be his little sister, Hiyama Mami instead.

Detector

Voiced by Fuminori Komatsu

The name of a terrorist organisation, or at least its masked spokesman, with the ability to "Brainjack" or seize control of numerous LBXs at once to cause chaos. It was all the work of Yamano Junichiro of all people, trying to put a stop to Omega Dyne's conspiracy by turning the LBXs they've distributed into their most obvious threat.

Allan Worthen

Voiced by Takaya Hashi

The head of Omega Dyne, world authority of LBX distribution. He brought in Dr Mummy to the company, backing his work and the creation of Killer Droids to further Alferd Gardyne's agenda. He didn't live to see the result.

President Claudia Lenneton

President of "A Country", who gets involved when her speech to end global warfare makes her a target for Detector.

Alferd Gardyne

Vice-President of "A Country". Having planned to coup the President for some time, he's the one behind the machinations of Omega Dyne - but roping in Dr Mummy may have been a bad move.

Oozora Haruka

Voiced by Aya Endo

Oozora Hiro's Missing Mom, who's been away from home and working on a massive AI in the UK. Turns out it's the very same AIs that are used to manipulate the Pparadise Kill Sat, and by the time our heroes find out, it may be too late...

LTA Jack Gelato (LBX: Proto I)

Military ace with the "A Country" defence force, Jack is apparently a LBX test pilot, and gets a pretty nasty one to start with.

Mizel (LBX: Vector/O.Legion/Mizel O.Legion)

Voiced by Taisuke Yamamoto

A mysterious boy who appears just after the destruction of the Paradise space station. What is their relationship, if any?
