Characters: GaoGaiGar
GaoGaiGar has a lot of characters, that is obvious. This page gives more detailed views of the characters which appear in the original series and GaoGaiGar FINAL and analyses their personalities. This page is currently under construction, any contributions to the character sheet is widely appreciated.

Characters introduced in King of Braves GaoGaiGar

Guy Shishioh / Cyborg Guy / Evoluder Guy

The main protagonist in the series. Guy was originally an astronaut who was fatally injured by El-01 during one of his space missions, but then was saved by Galion and was found in a coma holding a G-Stone. In order to keep his life, his father turned him into a cyborg, and used the G-stone Guy was holding as Guy's main life support. Because of his new cyborg body, he is stronger, faster and more durable than any human, which is why he considers it his responsibility to use his enhanced body to protect humanity with the rest of the GGG. In battle, he can do a fusion with Galeon to form the Super Robot GaiGar, which in turn can do another fusion called the Final Fusion, forming the titular mecha GaoGaiGar. When on foot, Guy has several abilities which he can use to fight enemies hand-to-hand, including his Will Knife and Hyper Mode, the latter which can be activated for two minutes at a time to make Guy even stronger and faster during the timeframe.

Tropes associated with Guy include:
  • Awesome McCoolname: His name translates into "triumphant lion king."
  • Badass
  • Big Brother Instinct: Go ahead, hurt or threaten Mamoru in his presence. See what happens. Him pulling out his Will Knife and cutting you to ribbons is a BEST case scenario. Worst case scenario? GOLDIOOOOOOOOOOOOONNNN CRUUUUUUUSHEEEEEEERRRRRRR!!!!
  • Big Eater: There's an occasion where, when he and Mikoto are on a lunch date, you can see a half-dozen or so empty gyuudon bowls on his side. Apparently, it all gets incinerated inside his body and serves him no nutritional benefit, being entirely for his sanity.
  • Boring Invincible Hero: Subverted on several occasions, though he takes it stride. If anything, he's a case study on why being a cyborg sucks.
  • Can't Have Sex, Ever: Until Episode 50, at least.
  • Cyborg: If it wasn't obvious from his name.
  • Drop the Hammer: Goldion Hammer, and in FINAL, Goldion Crusher
  • Fiery Redhead: As Cyborg Guy. Evoluder Guy has auburn-ish hair.
  • The Hero
  • Hot-Blooded: To the core.
  • Large Ham: Zigzagged — in battle he is the pinnacle of the Screaming Warrior; outside, he's quite a calm man. The best point to see the difference is in FINAL (right at the start of this video).
  • Lightning Bruiser: He is this in the Super Robot Wars series. Protect Shade/Wall (and later Genesic Armor) let him handle armies of mooks, no trouble. Genesic Aura, Guy's stats, and the base power of Hell and Heaven/Goldion Hammer/Goldion Crusher let him deal tens of thousands of damage unaided. Brave and GaoFighGar/Genesic GaoGaiGar's stats let him dodge at percents that are poor for a real robot, but ridiculous for a Super. Truly he is the Destruction God.
  • Long-Haired Pretty Boy: After transforming into Evoluder Guy, he becomes able to summon his cyborg armor at will, allowing him to assume a more human appearance resulting in becoming this.
  • Prepare to Die: A rare hero example after he got Genesic GaoGaiGar.
    Guy: You 11 Sol Masters. I...Will...Destroy...ALL OF YOU!!!
  • Roaring Rampage of Revenge: His first act of business after obtaining Genesic GaoGaiGar.
  • Technopath: After becoming an Evoluder.
  • "The Reason You Suck" Speech: Given to Palparepa during the climax of their last battle in FINAL.
    Guy: The reason you tried to seal off GGG...! The reason you couldn't come close to the G-Crystal...! The reason you isolated GaoFighGar...! The reason you didn't come to directly attack our Earth...! It's all because you feared us! The G-Stone's power can only grow and surpass the power of the Loud G-Stone! This is the energy BORN FROM COURAGE!!
  • The Rival (In the Super Robot Wars 4koma for Shiiba Hiroshi, a fellow cyborg, except Guy's shinier)
    • In Universe, his rival is Shuu. Information is found in the manga and can be downloaded here.
  • Unstoppable Rage: Goes into this after fighting EI-03, and would have crushed the core he'd just ripped out (killing the Zonderized human), if Mamoru hadn't gotten there in time. Also towards the end of his fight with the Zonuda, though that's more 'frenzied' than 'rage'.
  • We Can Rebuild Him: Primarily by his father. He takes pride in being the "Strongest Cyborg in History".

Mamoru Amami / Latio

Voiced by: Maiko Itou (EN), Veronica Taylor (EN)

A young elementary school boy who after the emergence of El-02 and the following Zonder attacks finds himself discovering hidden powers, involving purification of Zonder cores. Unknown to him, he was found aboard Galeon several years before by his adoptive parents, and got taken in as their child. It is later on revealed that he is actually Latio, the biological son of Cain, a biological weapon designed to defeat the Zonders, and the Primevals.

Tropes associated with Mamoru include:
  • Catch Phrase: "Wahha~!"
  • Kid Hero: He's nine years old when the series start.
  • Hair Colors: He is usually brown-haired, but his hair turns green when his powers activate.
  • Happily Adopted: He's not initially aware of this.
  • Holy Hand Grenade: Although his purification abilities are mainly used to revert Zonderised humans to normal, they can be used as a weapon, as seen in FINAL when he vaporized Pei Le Cain.
  • Human Alien
  • Moses in the Bullrushes
  • Puppy Love: There are tons of official material suggesting a love relationship between him and Hana.
    • Suggesting? Hana wearing a wedding dress at the end of episode 49 and kissing Mamoru before he left Earth is as official as it gets.
  • Rogue Protagonist: In FINAL, although it turns out to be a subversion since it was actually an Evil Counterpart, and the real Mamoru was far, far away from Earth at the time.
  • Took a Level in Badass: In spades. Starts out by flying towards the giant Shinjuku-crushing robot in the first episode, and eventually works his way up to fighting Zonuuda alongside Galeon.

Ikumi Kaidou / Arma

Voiced by: Sayuri (JP)

A classmate of Mamoru's who is silent and always seems distant. He does not play a significant role for most of the series but seems to recognize Pizza whenever he appears. As it turns out, Kaidou is in fact an Arma unit from the Red Planet in the Trinary Solar System. The ruler of the Red Planet, Abel, decided that Cain of the Green Planet had the right idea and created an entire army of Soldato J cyborgs along with J-Arks and Armas based on the power of the J-Jewel and genetic data from Latio. Unfortunately they still failed and the Red Planet was Zonderised, but Soldato J No. 002 was able to send his Arma and J-Ark away before the final battle. He landed on Earth where he was found and adopted by a human woman.

After Pasder appears, Kaidou's memories of his origin and purpose are restored and he sets to work fulfilling the mission entrusted to him by purifying first Soldato J and then Tomoro-117 in order to reactivate the J-Ark and bring it back to fighting strength.

Tropes associated with Kaidou include:
  • Artificial Human: Not especially played up, though.
  • It's Not You, It's My Enemies: A more familial version. Arma avoided becoming too attached to his human classmates and family in order to avoid hurting any of them when he was gone, and to avoid leaving any openings that enemies could exploit. It didn't work - not the first time, anyway.
  • Meaningful Name: Arma is Italian for "weapon".
  • Override Command: Palus Abel used him to shut down Soldato J's J-Jewel.
  • Psychic Powers: The first hint that there's something not quite right about Kaidou is when he starts throwing telekinetic blasts around.

Koutaro Taiga

Voiced by: Kouji Ishii (JP), Dan Green (EN)

The leader of GutsyGeoidGuard and later, GutsyGalaxyGuard, Taiga is an idealistic individual who authorizes all of the organization's operations, including deployment of the robots of the organization and the approvals for the use of Final Fusion and Goldion Hammer, amongst several other weapons used by GaoGaiGar.

Tropes associated with Taiga include:
  • Badass Normal: Especially after an episode in which he fought off possessed employees with a golf club. We find out in a Drama CD that he used to lead a Sentai-esque commando team. Yes, he used a golf club as his primary weapon then.
  • Big Good
  • Hot-Blooded: Even for a guy who mostly hangs out in the Main Order Room, he manages to pull this off well.
  • Hot-Blooded Sideburns
  • Large Ham: Almost every single order is done in the most epic way possible.
    • This troper still wonders where the wind that brushes his cape up comes from everytime he approves the Goldion Hammer.

Mikoto Utsugi / Zonuda

Voiced by: Tomoe Hanba (JP), Rebecca Soler (EN)

Guy's High School Sweetheart (Though she Could Not Spit It Out at the time). As if nearly losing Guy in the EI-01 incident wasn't bad enough, it also landed on her house, killing both her parents. Nonetheless, she has remained loyally at Guy's side through his reconstruction and rehabilitation, and continues to work by his side in the GGG Main Order Room.

After the defeat of Z-Master, it's discovered that when Mikoto's house was invaded by EI-01, it implanted her with the seed of a new type of Zonder, the Zonuda, with the power to sublimate technology and absorb energy.

Leo Shishioh

Voiced by: Kenichi Ogata (JP), Marc Diraison (EN)

GGG's top science officer and Guy's Father. Rather spry for his old age, and regularly wears rocket skates.

  • Einstein Hair
  • Killed Off for Real: Although he does appear alongside his wife as a Spirit Advisor to Guy shortly after.
    • Especially jarring for an anime example. It only had a muddled Foreshadowing, happened within seconds, and he was stuck in such a situation, with such a short time frame, that the only thing a genius like him could was to scream "NOOO!" First-time viewers WILL be caught off-guard.
  • Mission Control: In Main Order Room, of course, but prior to the events of the TV show he gave orders to the special commando team ID5, which Taiga and Hyuuma were once part of.
  • The Professor
  • Sibling Rivalry: His relationships with his brother Liger could be a bit less of an insult war at times.
  • The Smart Guy

Geki Hyuuma

Voiced by: Hisao Egawa (JP), Marc Thompson (EN)

  • A Glass in the Hand: A Running Gag involves him crushing his communicators. (He actually carries several in his vest.)
  • Manly Gay: Looks the part, but his sexual orientation is never even remotely hinted at.
  • Hot-Blooded: Perhaps even rivaling Guy's. However, he's also 3G's mission planner and keeps a cool analytical mind in this capacity.
  • The Big Guy: Barring Guy and perhaps Mamoru, he is the only major human(oid) member of 3G that does any form of direct fighting (and trained Hyoryu and Enryu as well). Justified, in that he has a a military background and 3G seems to consist of mostly civilians.
  • The Strategist: Hyuuma's official position in 3G is "mission strategist", not "Muscles McMuscles".

Swan White

Voiced by: Miki Narahashi (JP), Erica Schroeder (EN)

  • Christmas Cake: Her age isn't given, but she (jokingly, to Mikoto) considers the 20-year-old Guy as too young to go after.
  • Dumb Blonde: Subverted, she is actually rather competent and is officially Dr. Leo's assistant.
  • Foreign Fanservice: She is a very good looking woman, but her Engrish gets to incredible levels at times.
  • Mission Control: Notably fills in for Mikoto in episode 18, doing the Final Fusion sequence in her place.

Kousuke Entouji

Voiced by: Tsutomu Kashiwakura (JP), Wayne Grayson (EN)

GGG Intelligence Operator and computer programmer. Slovenly but kind-hearted.

  • Genius Slob: His only really negative character trait. The guy's lack of hygiene is pretty noticeable.
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: Tends to act this way towards Volfogg. It's thought that he was friends with the dead agent Volfogg's Super AI was based on - this explains why Volfogg's death against Penchinon hits him so hard.
  • Improbably High IQ: Officially 300. Although it seems his father programmed Bay Tower Base's main systems, Kousuke did everything else. Alone.
  • Mission Control: Although he generally only communicates directly with Volfogg (who belongs to GGG Intel and is, at least technically, a subordinate).
  • Tragic Keepsake: The large bow Papillon places in his hair.
  • Ugly Guy Hot Girl - Just how did he get Papillon?
  • Workaholic: to the point that he sleeps better in the base than at home.

Kazuo Ushiyama

Voiced by: Hiroaki Ishikawa (JP), Marc Thompson (EN)

GGG's Mechanic Operator, and is in charge of repairs and maintenance. Tends to be more of a background character than the other main GGG characters.

  • Mission Control: To the point where if he leaves the base, it's because he's not working, or someone dragged him.
    • And then he goes and drives Drill Gao into battle.
  • Stout Strength: Aversion - he's big and a bit wide, but is of average strength and health. (Hyuuma frequently tells him to work out more, in fact.)
  • The Caretaker: Seems to be taking care of his three younger brothers, in the absence of any parents, and they are luckily never the source of angst for him. Otherwise, this is his basic job description towards the Yuusha Corps as well, and at one point we see him watering the plants in the background of Main Order Room.

Isamu and Ai Amami

Voiced by: Kozo Shioya (Isamu, JP), Ed Paul (Isamu, EN), Sayuri (Ai, JP), Eileen Stevens (Ai, EN)

Mamoru's adoptive parents. Isamu works at the Aerospace Corporation (GGG's front) while Ai is a stay-at-home mother. They tend to fret a bit when Mamoru might be in trouble.

  • Good Parents: Basically, they're the Japanese Kents: they lovingly raised a boy from another world as their own, who'd later become the savior of mankind. Hell, they even named him Mamoru, which means "to protect", it's obvious they were raising him to be a good boy.
  • Muggle Foster Parents: And, as far as Mamoru is concerned, they are his parents.

Hana Hatsuno

Voiced by: Konami Yoshida (JP), Eileen Stevens (EN)

Mamoru's classmate who has a long-standing (mutual!) crush on him. Tends to get caught up in Zonder Robo attacks more times than is probably healthy.

  • Catch Phrase: "Kowakunai, Kowakunai..." ("I'm not scared, I'm not scared...") Mamoru taught it to her, back in Hokkaido. Given the dangers she often faces, it's more of a Survival Mantra.
    • Badass Creed: Hits a climax when she attacks the Zonderized Assistant Principal on her own.
  • Dog Walks You: Played as a Running Gag. Justified by Yosef being at least twice Hana's size. She has better luck with Yosef's puppies in FINAL - but there's a whole pack of them!
  • Puppy Love: Hana and Mamoru have a Childhood Marriage Promise dating back to when they lived in Hokkaido (4 years before the series started). They make good on it in the last episode.
  • Weirdness Magnet: At times, it's like the Zonders have their eye on her rather than Mamoru. (Luckily, at no point do they seem to be aware of her connection to Mamoru.)
  • You Gotta Have Pink Hair: Her parents have normal hair colors, too.

Sueo "Usshii" Ushiyama

Voiced by: Hiroaki Ishikawa (JP)

Another classmate of Mamoru and the youngest brother of Kazuo.

  • The Big Guy: subversion - while he's definitely the largest of Mamoru's friends, his defining trait is his interest in military mechanics (some of which are leaked from his older brother) ...and he's probably not as strong as Reiko.

Sunou Takayasu

Another of Mamoru's classmates. Comes from a fairly rich family, and has a habit of trying to impress his friends with gadgets and tales of family trips.

  • Ocular Gushers: resorts to these when either A) Reiko cuts him down a few notches or B) when he's caught up in a Zonder attack.
  • Smug Snake: shows signs of growing into this. That is, if Reiko hasn't humbled him out of it by then.

Reiko Komori

Voiced by: Miki Narahashi (JP), Annice Moriarty (EN)

Somewhat stuck-up classmate of Mamoru and Hana. Her family is even richer than the Sunous, and she takes great delight in one-upping Sunou or otherwise deflating him whenever he starts bragging.

  • Alpha Bitch: Just a little bit, and usually directed at Sunou.
  • Don't You Dare Pity Me!: We find out in a CD Drama that her father is dead and her family is broke - there's a throwaway line in episode 26 that refers to this, and that may be her cheap apartment that she's in front of in her first FINAL appearance. She hides this from her friends but acts 'rich' for seemingly this trope.
  • The Nicknamer / Fun with Acronyms: Comes up with acronyms for just about anybody. Especially attractive males.
  • Pintsized Powerhouse: Hoists up Hana, Usshii, and Takayasu at once as they evacuate Tokyo before EI-01 appears.

Liger Shishioh

Voiced by: Kenichi Ogata (JP)

Scientist at NASA and brother to Leo.

Stallion White

Operative for GGG America and brother of Swan.
  • Big Brother Instinct: It's so strong that it can override Mic Sounders' (whose AI was based on him in a manner similar to Goldy Marg and Hyuuma) System Protection and allow Mic to use System Change when Swan is in danger.

Galeon

An extraterrestrial robotic lion who saved Guy's life following his encounter with EI-01 and brought Mamoru to his foster parents. Galeon was originally created by Cain as an 'anti-program' to counteract the 11 Sol Masters, but was reprogrammed and tasked with protecting Cain's son Latio (Mamoru), following the mechanization of the Green Planet.

Galeon is able to fuse with Guy to form the mechanoid GaiGar, and form the titular GaoGaiGar through Final Fusion with the Gao Machines. In FINAL, with it's original program restored, Galeon is able to combine with Evoluder Guy and the Genesic Machines to form the God of Destruction, Genesic GaoGaiGar.

  • Animal Mecha
  • Black Box: On Galeon's back, containing information about G-Stone based technology, used as the basis for most of the robots in the cast.
  • Combining Mecha
  • Noisy Nature
  • Only Known by Their Nickname: The Amamis refer to Galeon as the "North Pole Lion", due to the circumstances under which they first met him (it wouldn't be surprising if the rest of the world did until GGG went public).
  • Papa Wolf: If Galeon senses that Mamoru is in trouble, he'll go help him. And actually hurting him will result in general rage. Kill him, and no god can help you.
  • Transforming Mecha

HyoRyu & EnRyu / ChouRyuJin

HyoRyu and EnRyu are a pair of highly-advanced AI's developed by GGG, and installed in a pair of Transforming bodies; a Crane and Firetruck respectively. When the two brothers' sympa-rates reach 100%, they are both able to combine their bodies via Symmetrical Docking and merge into ChoRyuJin.

Volfogg

Voiced by: Katsuyuki Konishi (JP)
An AI Robot developed for GGG intelligence and assigned to protect Mamoru in battle. Can combine with the vehicles GunGrue and GunDober to form Big Volfogg.

  • Back from the Dead: Volfogg's AI is based off of an intelligence agent who was killed before the start of the series.
  • Combining Mecha: With the Gun Machines into Big Volfogg, who is much more suited to direct combat. (Unlike the other Yuusha Corps, they are the same person and not a gestalt personality.)
  • Helicopter Blender: Big Volfogg's Murasame Sword. Justified, as it's purpose-made and he's coating them with Mirror Particles during use - enough that it can double as a shield in a pinch.
  • Ninja - Justified, as he actually belongs to GGG's intelligence department and was designed around intelligence gathering and recon. (In practice, Volfogg is closer to Real Life ninja while Big Volfogg resembles a fictional one.)
    • Ninja Pirate Zombie Robot - Almost literally even, since he is a ninja police robot (and comes back from the dead a couple of times...).
  • The Stoic

Mic Sounders the 13th

A robot developed by GGG America (NASA). Appears to be little more than a gigantic toy robot at first, but there's More Than Meets The Eye to him (sorry).

  • Engrish
  • Lethal Joke Character - Contrary to show tradition, he is introduced as pretty goofy and completely harmless (his Cosmo Robo form), but he gets his own first Crowning Moment of Awesome by the next episode after his first System Change (into his Boom Robo form).
    • Justified by his Boom Robo form being so powerful - his Cosmo Robo form is a Power Limiter.
    • Cosmo Robo isn't completely useless - he can fly and hover in midair, and is able to ferry people to and from Orbit Base. In battle, though, even the Pliers are more effective.
  • Make Me Wanna Shout - His moveset. Without using special disks (stored in his flying platform "Studio 7" and inserted into the disk player in his chest), he can manipulate sound to have physical effects. With disks, he can do things like shatter objects by manipulating their specific frequencies - up to and including the Earth.
  • The Power of Rock / Musical Assassin - Plenty of both, since he can both use his music to empower the heroes or weaken the enemy.
    • There's a scene, just before GGG leaves for Jupiter, where he's playing in a concert for the Orbit Base staff.
  • Unseen Prototype: Averted. Later on in the series we get to see the other 12 Mic Sounders robots.

Goldy Marg

Part of a system designed to protect Gao Gai Gar from the effects of the Goldion Hammer. Goldy Marg was built to carry the Hammer, which is incorporated into his construction, into battle. As he's built specifically to withstand the power of the Goldion Hammer, Goldymarg is the toughest and strongest of the GGG robots. Given the short time of his creation, his AI was based on Geki Hyuuma rather than being developed from scratch like the others.

  • The Big Guy: Has no weapons other than his fists and his nigh-indestructible body in mechanoid form. Knows how to use them. Only King J-Der is physically stronger than he is.
    • Not entirely true. The base of his hammer is also a laser cannon. He rarely ever needs it, though, preferring the direct approach.
  • Boisterous Bruiser
  • Drop the Hammer: Hell, he is the Hammer!
  • Genius Bruiser: It doesn't come up much (Goldy's very much aware that he's the Finishing Move), but he IS based on GGG's mission planner. He does exactly the right thing when the 31 Primevals attack Orbit Base, for example.
  • Hot-Blooded: Well, his personality IS based on Geki Hyuuma, so...
  • Swiss-Army Weapon: The handle of the Goldion Hammer is the barrel of his tank form's gun. The tires of his tank form produce (Mirror particle?) 'nails' in hand form.
  • Tank Goodness: His vehicle form is that of a tank.

FuuRyu & RaiRyu / GekiRyuJin

Brother machines to HyoRyu and EnRyu developed by GGG China (Chinese Scientific Aeronautics Division). Their vehicle forms are a Cement Mixer and Dump Truck respectively. When enhanced by THE POWER, they can do a cross-Symmetrical Dock with their brothers to form GenRyuJin [HyoRyu/RaiRyu and GouRyuJin FuuRyu/EnRyu.

  • Arm Cannon: FuuRyu's mixer barrel cover's GekiRyuJin (and GouRyuJin)'s arm.
  • Blow You Away: FuuRyu
  • Combining Mecha: Although unlike ChoRyuJin, GekiRyuJin seems to have FuuRyu's thinking with RaiRyu's expression - he has a cool head, but is a little rude.
  • Hot Wings: Shan Tou Long / Maximum Tou Long
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: FuuRyu's the blue oni, RaiRyu's the red oni.
  • Running Gag: EnRyu's problem carries over to RaiRyu.
  • Shock and Awe: RaiRyu
  • Sky Surfing: RaiRyu rides his dumper to fly.
    • which is ironic considering he's shown to be just as incompetent as Enryu at landing.
  • Taking You with Me: Apparently, GekiRyuJin's been carrying around a powerful self-destruct device in his left shoulder. He uses this, in a Shout-Out to Getter Robo, to destroy Pechulron in FINAL.
  • Wind is Green: FuuRyu, natch.

Pasder (EI-01)

The original Extraterrestrial Intelligence that landed on Earth at the beginning of the show, hence its designation. Pasder spends the next two years regaining his strength before finally reawakening and summoning four Machine Kings to begin the process of slowly Zonderising the entire planet. As soon as he finds out that Galeon is awake, he orders all four to hunt down and destroy the "Legacy of Cain" (No, not that one) but is ultimately defeated by our heroes with a liberal application of hammer to the face.

But here's the kicker - it turns out Pasder is hardly the most powerful opponent GGG has to fight. In fact, he was just a mouthpiece for the 31 Primevals and is later absorbed into the other mouthpiece, Pagliaccio, giving them full knowledge of GGG's fighting strength and tactics.

Pizza / Soldato J No. 002

The most aggressive and warlike of the four Machine Kings. His martial pride causes him to clash with Guy at several points throughout the series and eventually causes him to remember details of his past. Pizza was originally one of the cyborg soldiers of the Red Planet, in the Trinary Solar System, who fought against the 31 Primevals but was forced to flee into the wastelands where he was found by Pinchernone and turned into a Zonderian. After remembering his old principles and pride he sacrifices himself to save Guy, and is eventually purified and resurrected as Soldato J.

  • Big Damn Heroes - Just when GaoGaiGar is on its knees and about to be torn limb from limb by three of the Primevals, the J-Ark shows up out of nowhere and blasts two of them to smithereens in the space of about a minute.
  • Cool Mask
  • Cool Plane - His victims usually employ a sky motif while he himself uses one in the final clash between 3G and the zonderians in Tokyo city.
  • Cool Starship - J-Bird and J-Ark
  • The Dragon
  • Expy - Of Cyborg 002.
  • Fallen Hero - For the first half, but he eventually manages to pull himself back up.
  • Heel-Face Turn - Noticable since he did his Heel-Face Turn before being purified by Arma.
  • One-Letter Name: Trope discussed in Super Robot Wars W
    Yumi: "D-san, I finally get it... the D is for "Dream"!
    Horis: Then what's J's J?
    Hikaru: Maybe it's Japan.
    Izumi: It's the J in "joke".
    Guy: Judgment... or maybe, Justice?
    Soldat J: (I don't know either...)
  • The Rival - To Guy
  • Sixth Ranger
  • That Man Is Dead
    Mamoru: You're Pizza of the Four Machine Kings!
    Soldato-J: That was a false name! The man named Pizza is dead! I am J. Reborn by the J-jewel as Soldato-J!

Pinchernone (pronounced Penchinon) / Tomoro-117

The insidious and calculating member of the Machine Kings, Pinchernone is best known for his sailor uniform/Monster Clown outfit and his downright creepy laugh. He serves as another foil for Pizza, whom he works most often with, and the two could almost be considered friends, if machine lifeforms can have friends. Pinchernone also develops a rivalry of sorts with Volfogg. Later it is revealed that he was once Tomoro-117, the main computer of the J-Ark, which was zonderised during the 31 Primevals' invasion of the Red Planet, forcing J to fight on foot. Unable to defeat the Arm Primeval, J fled into the wastelands where he was found by Pinchernone and became the Machine King Pizza.

As Tomoro-117 he is very precise, efficient, and unflinchingly loyal to both J and Arma, and proves to be instrumental in defeating the Z-Master. In FINAL, he uses the last of the J-Ark's ES-Missiles to allow Genesic GaoGaiGar to reach the PasQ Machine and destroy the replica of the Trinary Solar System.

  • A.I. Is a Crapshoot - He IS a zonderized computer, after all. He gets better after purification, though.
  • The Brute: When the Zondarians take direct action and turn themselves into Zonder Robos, he's just about had it with Volfogg...
  • Cool Boat - His victims usually have some kind of naval motif, and his zonderian form is that of a huge ship. Same goes for the J-Ark too, since his purified form is it's main computer.
  • Cool Starship - he becomes the main computer for one after his purification.
  • Evil Laugh - BRRREEEEEEEEE!
  • Heel-Face Turn - Like Soldat J, he gets purified by Arma.
  • Humanoid Abomination: He looks like a person. Barely. Is always shown sitting, even as he falls through the sky. The general impression is, he doesn't look human and doesn't get how to well enough for Uncanny Valley to apply. Also: BRRRREEEEEEEE~!note 

Primada

The most outgoing and playful of the four Machine Kings. Primada usually appears as a ballerina with clothes made of car parts, and is almost always dancing in her on-screen appearances. As part of Pasder's final plan, she and Polonaise form a gigantic energy generator to power the Zonder Metal Plant. She is killed by exposure to the G-Stone energies from ChoRyuJin's exposed GS Ride. It's vaguely hinted that Primada and Polonaise were married before they became Zonderians. Interestingly, many Zonderians resembling Primada can be seen in the background during the flashback of the Red Planet being Zonderised.

Polonaise

Often taking the human form of a silent old train conductor, Polonaise is the most unassuming of the four Machine Kings. As part of Pasder's final plan, he and Primada form a gigantic energy generator to power the Zonder Metal Plant. He is killed when GaoGaiGar injures him severely, followed by his purification by Mamoru.

  • Cool Train - Polonaise favours a train motif in a majority of his victims.
  • Death Equals Redemption - He dies right after his purification, with a delighted smile on his face. Apparently both he and Primarda were Zondarians for too long...
  • Evil Genius

Pagliaccio

A seemingly robotic clown who gives orders to the 31 Primevals. Pagliaccio is actually a "terminal program" created by the most powerful of them all, the Heart Primeval, in order to gather intelligence on Earth and direct the actions of the others. It is seen absorbing Pasder at the conclusion of the battle and eventually starts analyzing THE POWER so that the Primevals can take it for themselves. Oddly, neither GGG nor the J warriors take note of its presence.

Arm Primeval

One of the 31 Primevals, and the one that gets the most screentime.

  • Beard of Evil
  • The Dragon: To Pagliaccio and Heart Primeval. May also qualify as The Heavy, since he is the most active of the Primevals.
  • Gravity Master: He can create and control gravity shockwaves with surprising precision, to the point that he claims that they're "undodgeable".
  • Morphic Resonance: All of the forms he takes has a huge arm.
  • Red Right Hand: Almost literally: his right arm is huge.
  • Tin Tyrant: Briefly appears as one during a flashback to a fight between him and Soldat-J.

The Z-Master

The combined form of the 31 Primevals and the master program controlling every Zonder Metal and Zonder lifeform in the universe (except the Zonuda). It was originally created by the Purple Planet to eliminate stress and negativity. However, it decided that the best way to do so would be to absorb all life into itself. Not only does it have full knowledge of GGG's tactics and capabilities thanks to the efforts of the Primevals, but it is able to attach itself to Jupiter and drain THE POWER, making it all but invincible.

Characters introduced in King of Braves GaoGaiGar FINAL

Renais Cardiff Shishioh

Voiced by: Yumi Kakazu.
The daughter of Liger Shishioh (making her Guy's cousin) and a rogue agent of the high-tech criminal organizatin BioNet. When she was young, her mother was murdered by BioNet agents, and Renais was forcibly turned into a cyborg and made into one of their agents. She didn't take it so well, and turned on her captors. She was restrained and left in a BioNet facility to die until she was discovered and rescued by her Father. Liger was able to repair her though the use of a GS Ride added to her systems, but could not solve a critical flaw in her construction: a severe overheating that requires her to wear a cooling jacket. In order to get revenge for the death of her mother, Renais joined GGG France (Chasseur).

AnRyu & KouRyu / TenRyuJin

Voiced by: Yukari Tamura
Sister machines to the Dragon Brothers (as their names suggest). Their alt-forms are a MASER truck and MLRS Launcher truck respectively.

  • Call Back: TenRyuJin's "Dance of Light and Dark" is based on an attack Pasder used in Part 1, and she uses an attack called "Projectile/Bullet X Lite" to take out Puranus.
  • Combining Mecha
  • Dual Wielding
  • Fembot
  • Guile Heroine: During TenRyuJin's "Dance of Light And Dark", she essentually waits in the shadows, taunting the opponent and misdirecting them until she can move in for the Finishing Move.
  • Impaled with Extreme Prejudice: By Puranus. Doesn't take.
  • Improbable Aiming Skills - TenRyuJin acknowledges the massive amount of computational power that would be required to make her strongest attacks work.
  • Macross Missile Massacre - AnRyu carries an impressive 210 missiles.
  • Mega Manning - Guess where they got the data necessary to make her strongest attacks work properly. Come on, just guess.
  • Reflecting Laser - TenRyuJin's Dance of Light and Dark. Justified in that she provides the reflective surfaces.
  • Running Gag - KouRyu is just like her brothers, EnRyu and RaiRyu. She's actually shown also having problems with a flight pack.
  • Tomboy and Girly Girl - In a similar notion to their brothers, KouRyu and AnRyu have rather polarising personalities, with KouRyu being more of a tomboy whereas AnRyu is the more calm and feminine one.
  • Transforming Mecha

Papillion Noir

A bioengineer who has been assigned to the Main Order Room in-between the events of GGG and FINAL. She's the Love Interest of Kousuke Entouji.

Professor Takanohashi

One of the world's top 10 scientists, he has been assigned to the Main Order Room in-between the events of GGG and FINAL. He takes up the late Professor Leo Shishio's place

  • Wholesome Crossdresser: In one part of his introduction montage, He appears in an stereotypical hawaiian-girl Coconut-shell and grass-skirt outfit.

Chief Yaginuma

The replacement for Chief Taiga after he returned to his job as Company President.

Rose Aproval

Secretary General of the U.N.

Gimlet

A member of Bionet

The 11 Planetary Masters of Sol

A group of programs given material form, tasked with restoring the Trinary System upon the destruction of the Z-Master. However, they too exceeded their original programming and set about creating a new universe by draining this one's dark matter, causing it to begin to collapse. They are the main anatagonists in FINAL.

  • A.I. Is a Crapshoot
  • Attack Its Weak Point: Their Loud G-Stone. While Pisa Sol can regenerate them after this, it seems that if it weren't for her, destroying this would destroy them for good. Pisa Sol can be considered one for the whole group, as destroying her took all the replica Sol Lords with her.
  • Knight of Cerebus: By far the most powerful and efficient enemies of the entire series. to put it simple, every little victory GGG manages to get during FINAL is quickly followed by a huge defeat at their hands
  • Evil Cannot Comprehend Good: They fail to take the power of courage into account when facing GGG, which ultimately leads to their downfall. In fact, it's implied they fear it because it allows the G-Stone to surpass the power of their Loud G-Stones.
  • Good Thing You Can Heal
  • Evil Counterpart
  • Healing Factor
  • Omnicidal Maniacs
  • Psycho Rangers
  • Theme Naming: Their names all begin with P. Most of them also have names based off planets.

Palparepa

Voiced by: Kiyoyuki Yanada (JP)

Pisa Sol

Pei La Cain

  • Evil Knockoff: Is this for the real Cain
  • Mind Rape: Does this to Guy when Guy and Palperepa were clashing Hell and Heaven against God and Devil, causing Guy, who was matched with Palperepa at that moment, to lose concentration just long enough for him to lose the fight.

Palus Abel

  • Oh, Crap: Her reaction to being Out-Gambitted.
  • Opposite-Sex Clone: Potentially. It's hard to tell if Abel is male or female, never see anything that designates his/her gender, and Abel is rather young, physically, compared to the rest.
  • Out-Gambitted: Thought he/she had things won when Pisa Sol replicated the Sol Masters several dozen times each...playing right into the heroes' hands by draining so much of Pisa Sol's energy she had to recharge, leaving her vulnerable to the Goldion Crusher.
    Abel: It appears you've lost, doesn't it?
    Soldato-J: You think so?
    Renais: I knew she wouldn't notice.
    Abel: (Cue Oh, Crap)
  • Smug Snake
  • The Chess Master: Abel fancies him/herself this, commanding the rest of the Sol Masters, despite having no mech form of his/her own and was able to trash Kaidou easily.

Percurio, P-Vater, Polturn, Puranus & Ptulone
