Engine Sentai Go-onger character sheet.

The Go-ongers

Sosuke Esumi/Go-on Red | Actor: Yasuhisa Furuhara

Renn Kosaka/Go-on Blue | Actor: Shinwa Kataoka

Saki Royama/Go-on Yellow | Actor: Rina Aizawa

Hanto Jo/Go-on Green | Actor: Masahiro Usui

Gunpei Ishihara/Go-on Black | Actor: Kenji Ebisawa

  • Badass Longcoat: Subverted. Donning a trenchcoat led him to be mistaken for a drug dealer.
  • Butt-Monkey: Eventually took the role from out of Hanto's hands.
  • By-the-Book Cop
  • Cloud Cuckoolander: Somewhere down the road, a few brain cells dropped dead. By Shinkenger vs. Go-onger, any sanity he might have had left was apparently on vacation.
  • Cool Gun: Cowl Laser
  • Dub Name Change: "Alex" in the Korean dub.
  • Jumped at the Call: Desperate to become a Go-onger to the point of stealing the Engine Casts. It's only when he agrees to hand them back that Bomper decides Gunpei has a strong sense of justice, and allows him and Hanto to become Go-on Black and Green.
  • Ki Attacks: Ganga Ganga Dan, during the events of Go-onger vs. Gekiranger.
  • The Lancer
  • Real Men Hate Sugar: Subverted; after having a taste of a cake that Saki made (after Sosuke declared it to be delicious), he eagerly took a piece, saying, "I don't like sweets, but I'll have this."
    • In the finale, he tells Saki that he looks forward to the day when she opens her own cake shop. YMMV whether he has developed an appreciation for Saki's cakes and sweets, or if he is merely being a supportive friend.
  • Sensitive Guy and Manly Man: Manly Man to Hanto's Sensitive Guy.
  • Serious Business: When he starts interrogating the employees at Ren's inn to learn about his past with the petrified Banki shrine, you know a line is being crossed.
  • Terrible Artist: He is terrible at drawing. In GP 16, we see his drawing of a penguin, which looks like anything but.

Hiroto Suto/Go-on Gold | Actor: Hidenori Tokuyama

  • The Ace: One episode has a bunch of Hiroto's groupies saying he could master anything if he wasn't devoting his time to fighting Gaiark.
  • The Comically Serious: Even when fully joining the rest of the team, he still tries to distance himself from their sillier antics.
  • Meaningful Name: "Hiroto" uses the characters for "big wings", relating to his theme as a Go-on Wing.
  • Team Dad: An incident with a monster from the Sound World has him being labeled as the "Father" of the team, much to his chargin.

Miu Suto/Go-on Silver | Actor: Yumi Sugimoto

  • All Girls Want Bad Boys: While Sosuke is brainwashed in the Straw Banki episode, he begins acting like a gangster/Yakuza and offers Miu a stolen ring, which makes her happy. Later, after he has returned to normal, she admits that she preferred him brainwashed.
  • Aloof Ally: At first, but she warms up to the Go-ongers much faster than Hiroto does.
  • Meaningful Name: "Miu" uses the characters for "beautiful wings", relating to her theme as a Go-on Wing.
  • Not So Above It All: While Hiroto still tries to maintain a serious attitude, Miu will gladly join the rest of the Go-ongers' antics despite her initial reactions.

The Engines

The partners of the Go-Ongers, hailing from the Engine World. In order to survive on Earth they need to separate into Engine Casts, miniature versions of their true Engine forms, and Engine Souls, which are cartridge-shaped objects that store the soul of an Engine. When the Engine Casts are reunited with the Engine Souls, the Engines are brought back to full size for ten minutes, after which they risk rusting.

  • Animal Mecha: Mixed with Cool Car (for Speedor, Bus-on, BearRV, Gunpherd, and Carrigator), Cool Bike (Birca), Cool Plane (Toripter, Jetras, and Jumbowhale), or Cool Train (Prehistoric Engines).

  • Verbal Tic: Either a syllable of their respective names or an associated onomatopoeia. Even the non-speaking Prehistoric Engines have their roars counted as these by their verses in the ending.
