Main character of the first series and main character in general, featured in every adaptation of the series, pilots Getter-1.
* AntiHero: Type IV.
** Type II in the 70s anime.
** Type III in ''Armageddon''.
* BadassLongcoat: In ''Armageddon''.
* BareHandedBladeBlock
* BigOlEyebrows: In ''Armageddon''.
* BrainwashedAndCrazy: At one point in original manga.
* CharlesAtlasSuperpower: In Getter Robo Go he can break a sword on his chest and [[http://www.mangafox.com/manga/getter_robo_go/v06/c002/51.html crush dinosaur’s skull with his bare hands]].
* CombinationAttack: Comes up with the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JfEIAKpJP14 Final Dynamic Special]]. This indicates his friendship with Kouji, Tetsuya and Duke in the crossover specials. Also comes up with the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6a0P4bMP9So Final Getter Tomahawk]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aCqdSlrGHxM Double Shine Spark]] with Go in ''Armageddon''.
* CompositeCharacter: In ''Armageddon'', he is a composite of himself and Shinichi Kuruma from ''Majuu Sensen'' (Another series created by Ken Ishikawa).
* {{Determinator}}: Always.
* [[spoiler:FutureMeScaresMe: Swears off piloting Getter Robo after the events of the ''Shin Getter Robo'' manga, where a testing accident with Shin Getter leads him to have several [[DreamingOfThingsToCome prophetic dreams]] of the nightmarish Getter Emperor, culminating in an incident where he temporarily passes through a time portal to come face-to-face with Emperor itself]].
* FreudianTrio: Id in all versions aside 70’s anime. ''Especially'' in ''New Getter''
* GeniusBruiser: The Armageddon version has him handy enough to [[spoiler: customize a Getter 1 into the Black Getter.]]
* GoodIsNotNice: Almost every incarnation of him is a sociopath, though he still tends to care about not getting innocents hurt in any case, putting him into MoralSociopathy territory at the ''very'' least. Though at his softest, he's just a JerkWithAHeartOfGold.
* HeroicSacrifice: In the original manga, through he survives [[spoiler: and at the end of ''Armageddon'' and ''New Getter'']].
* HotBlooded: ''Every'' incarnation.
* HotbloodedSideburns: So much that he's the one featured in the main page's picture.
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: In some versions, even his rather tame portrayal in ''Manga/{{Devilman}} Vs Getter Robo'' has it's moments.
* RetiredBadass: In ''Go'' manga.
* SerialEscalation: Ryoma in ''New'' tops every other incarnation in being HotBlooded and even manages to top ''himself'' in the last episode.
* SlasherSmile: Often, but ''New Getter'' version really takes the cake.
* SpannerInTheWorks: In ''Armageddon'' he shows up out of nowhere in a BigDamnHeroes moment. The next episode the villains lampshade this, saying he "had a bad habit of wrecking our plans."
* ThrowingYourSwordAlwaysWorks: During his fight with assassins in New Getter.
* TookALevelInBadass: In Getter Robo Go, he comes back as an even bigger badass than before.
* TrainingFromHell: In the original manga he mentions training with his father, which apparently involved ''fighting tigers with his bare hands''.

! Hayato Jin
-> ''Looks like the only ones who can pilot Getter Robo are either superior pilots… or '''insane'''''
-->'''Getter Robo Go''' manga

-> '''First Apperance:''' Getter Robo manga
->'''Also Featured:''' Everywhere else.
->'''Voiced By:''' Creator/KeatonYamada (classic anime), Creator/NaoyaUchida (''Armageddon'', ''Shin vs Neo'', ''New''), Creator/YasunoriMasutani (''Daikessen''), Creator/KirkThornton (''New'' dub, as Todd Crump)

Pilot of Getter-2, more intelligent and calm than Ryoma, but in many continuities also even ''crazier'' than him.

* AdaptationalHeroism: He's kind of a dick in the original anime, but is mostly a moody loner. This is in sharp contrast to the manga, where he's a homicidal psychopath and terrorist.
* AntiHero: Type V. Eventually, he softens up slightly to a Type IV.
** Type II in the 70s anime version.
** Type III in ''Armageddon''.
* AxeCrazy: Manages to pull out this and TheStoic at the same time.
* BadassLongcoat: In ''Ah'' and ''Hien''.
* BadBoss: In his first appearance of the manga, he brutally kills his minions, sometimes for no reason at all. He does get better but still has some tendencies that make others fear him.
* CharacterDevelopment: Grows significantly over the course of the series. [[spoiler: In ''Getter Robo Go'' he even gets engaged.]]
* DeadpanSnarker: on occasion, he tends to be the most prone of this among the three pilots. Such as this gem from ''Armageddon:''
-->'''Ryoma:''' Hayato! What ''was'' that!?
-->'''Hayato:''' ''(calmly reloading gun)'' It had big claws and a long tail, so I'd say it was a monster.
* ForTheEvulz: In original manga he starts a revolution in his school, takes control of one of it's buildings and ''plots to kill Japan's prime minister'' out of boredom. In ''New'' he leads terrorists to satisfy his sadistic thirst of killing.
* FemmeFatalons: In his first appearance.
* FreudianTrio: Ego to Ryoma’s Id.
* {{Gorn}}: In original manga and ''New'' he cuts out guy’s eyes, ears and tongue with his ''fingernails''.
* HotBloodedSideburns: however he doesn't have them in the 70s anime adaption, the crossovers, or Getter Robo Devolution.
* JapaneseDelinquents: In the original manga, he's the leader of a gang of them.
* TheLancer: For Ryoma
* OlderAndWiser: In ''Armageddon'', ''Shin vs Neo'' and manga continuity starting from ''Go''.
* OmniscientMoralityLicense: Pulls it out few times to justify more amoral actions against the enemies. Suprisingly doesn’t use it in ''Go'' manga, when Go calls him on [[spoiler: sacrificing people’s lives to find out how neutralize Rando’s nuclear devices]].
-->'''Hayato:''' Don’t worry. [[spoiler: I’ll ask them to forgive me when I see them in hell.]]
* PayEvilUntoEvil
* RealMenWearPink: In the showdown with Shin Dragon in ''Armageddon'', he's kicking ass in a giant robot while wearing a pink work shirt. And it works.
* SinkOrSwimMentor: To Go during the start of, well, ''Go'', sending powerful assassins after him to see if he's worth recruiting. It's even implied he has done this to others, who failed the test.
* TheSmartGuy: Smartest of Getter PowerTrio.
* TheStoic: Probably one person who managed to be stoic and AxeCrazy at the same time.
** NotSoStoic: In original manga he starts panicking at the first encounter with dinosaurs, to the point of peeing himself and pass out after piloting Getter for the first time. In ''New'', after helping defeats Oni in Getter for the first time he drops his stoic persona and tries to destroy Satome Research Lab, while grinning like a maniac.
* SlasherSmile: Oh so very often, but ''Go'' manga version really takes the cake, probably outclassing even ''New'' incarnation.
* TallDarkAndSnarky
* TearOffYourFace: His introduction in the original manga, Hayato punishes a would-be deserter with this. A second guy just loses his eyes, ears, and nose.
* TerroristsWithoutACause: In ''New'' he leads a terrorist cell. At one point of his henchmen calls him on the fact he don’t give a damn about their cause and uses them as his personal tool to kill people.
** This is actually a SettingUpdate of the original manga, wherein he was the leader of one of 1970s Japan's notoriously violent campus radical groups.
* {{Yakuza}}: In the 90s he became a gangster instead of a terrorist as the only terrorists making the news in Japan at the time were the Aum Shinrikyo cultists, which wouldn't suit his personality very well.

!Musashi Tomoe
->'''First Apperance:''' ''Getter Robo'' anime
->'''Also Featured:''' ''Getter Robo'' manga, ''Shin Vs Neo'', ''Armageddon''
->'''Voiced By:''' Toku Nishio (classic anime), Creator/ShinpachiTsuji (''Armageddon''), Yasuhiko Kawazu (''Daikessen''), Creator/KiyoyukiYanada (''Shin Vs Neo'')

Young and idealistic judo fighter with a big heart, pilots Getter-3.

* [[spoiler:BackFromTheDead: In Ark, he's the leader of the Getter Crusaders.]]
* BreakingTheFourthWall: In ''Manga/{{Devilman}} vs Manga/GetterRobo'' after we get to see his [[{{Squick}} shower scene]].
-->'''Musashi:''' Sorry, I’m not Michiru.
** AudienceWhatAudience: He immediately has to explain to Ryoma who is he talking to.
* CanonImmigrant: Originally introduced in the anime, but Ishikawa liked him so much he brought him to the manga.
* CharlesAtlasSuperpower: He can make big monkeys fly with his judo.
* FatIdiot: Though he does get smarter as the story progresses.
* FreudianTrio: Superego to Ryoma’s Id and Hayato’s Ego.
%%* GentleGiant
* {{Gonk}}: Not ''that'' cartoonishly ugly, just... plainer compared to others.
* HeroicSacrifice: [[spoiler:In every continuity]].
* TheyKilledKenny: Humorously, there's a bit of a running gag involving him dying in some way, due to the his HeroicSacrifice in the original manga, to the point where virtually all reboot continuities and games featuring him ''will'' kill him off. The only time it's possible to save him will involve secrets (and these routes are non-Canon as far as story goes).
* TookALevelInBadass: [[spoiler:From plucky comic relief, to taking on the dinosaur empire solo in the original Getter Robo, to leading the Getter Crusaders in Ark.]]
* ParentalSubstitute: In ''Armageddon''. [[spoiler: After Michiru and Saotome's deaths and Ryoma's imprisonment, Musashi takes Genki in. Too bad he also dies soon afterwards, so Benkei (who's his old friend in this AlternateUniverse) raises Genki... as Kei.]]
* PluckyComicRelief: In manga.
* WrongGenreSavvy: Manga version clearly thinks he is in LighterAndSofter classic anime world, and not DarkerAndEdgier world of manga, much to annoyance of his teammates.
** FridgeBrilliance: As mentioned above, Musashi is a CanonImmigrant from the Getter Robo anime, which was ''significantly'' lighter in tone than the ultraviolence-ridden, dark manga. Musashi's genre error is likely Ishikawa having fun with this fact.

!Benkei Kuruma

Pilot of Getter-3 after [[spoiler: Musashi's death in fight with Dinosaur Empire]]

* AmbiguouslyBrown
* BigBrotherMentor: To Genki.
** [[spoiler: ParentalSubstitute: In ''Armageddon''.]]
* FlatCharacter: Manga-only. He doesn't really have much going for his character, other than being a replacement for [[spoiler:Musashi]]. In the anime adaptation of Getter Robo G and in Armageddon, however, he is more fleshed out and has more going for his character than he did in the manga.
* GentleGiant
* {{Gonk}}: Again, more plain than ugly
* [[spoiler: HeroicSacrifice]]: In ''Shin Getter Robo'' [[spoiler: And in ''Armageddon''.]]
* StoutStrength: In the anime he's a bit more muscular so he looks less like Musashi, unlike his manga counterpart.
* TechnicalPacifist
* TeamDad: In Armegeddon.

->'''Voiced By:''' Creator/KiyoyukiYanada (original), Creator/MichaelMcConnohie (''New'' dub)

->'''Voiced in English by''': [[Creator/JamiesonPrice Taylor Henry]] (Tomo-Ten), [[Creator/BeauBillingslea John Daniels]] (Jikoku-Ten), [[Creator/PaulStPeter Francis C. Cole]] (Zojo-Ten), [[Creator/RichardEpcar Richard George]] (Komoku-Ten)

Four godlike beings that appears at the end of New Getter Robo, real masterminds behind the Oni and Semei.

* BaldOfAwesome: Dhtarastra
* ChestBlaster: Virudhaka.
* CoolSword: Virudhaka's.
* {{Expy}}: Of four gods from another Ishikawa's manga, ''Kyomu Senki Miroku''.
* TheManBehindTheMan: For Semei
* MegaManning: Virudhaka (red head) creates a drill with his arm to block Hayato's.
* TheStoic: Vaisravana (gold) and even more Virudhaka.
* WellIntentionedExtremist: Will stop at nothing to destroy the threat of Getter Energy. They would probably get along
with the [[Anime/TengenToppaGurrenLagann Anti-Spirals]].

! Mr. Cohen and Mr. Stinger
->'''First Appearances:''' Getter Robo Armageddon
->'''Voiced By:''' Creator/DaisukeGori (Cohen, ''Armageddon'' anime), Creator/KentaMiyake (Cohen, ''Armageddon'' in ''VideoGame/SuperRobotWars''), Creator/MasashiHirose (Stinger)
* BreathWeapon: The third episode has Cohen puking Invader slime.
* BigBadDuumvirate : Of ''Armageddon''.
* EldritchAbomination:
* {{Evil Counterpart}}s: When piloting Metal Beast Getter G, Cohen is opposite Benkei and Stinger is opposite to Hayato.
* MookMaker: The third episode has Cohen puking Invader slime and in the finale a whole armada of EliteMooks come from him.
* OneWingedAngel: Their King of Invaders form
* NotSoHarmlessVillain: Being TheManBehindTheMan aside, they play second fiddle to Saotome most of the time in ''Armageddon''...Then they begin hurling moons, planets, black holes and eventually an Invader Dimension at Earth and all in the final two episodes!
* NotSoStoic:
* TheOtherDarrin: Cohen is voiced by Creator/KentaMiyake for his appearance in Saisei-Hen since Gouri died before the game was made.
* ScaryBlackMan: It isn't being angry that makes Cohen scary. Aside from hosting Invaders it is his entire mannerisms that make him scary.
* TheManBehindTheMan: The ones that most likely infected Saotome and Michiru.
* ThoseTwoBadGuys: Their role for much of the series.
* UnusuallyUninterestingSight: No one ever takes any notice of Stinger's blue skin and polygonal face.
* VillainTeamUp: In ''VideoGame/{{Super Robot Wars Z}}2: Saisei-Hen'', the Anti-Spirals cooperate with the Invaders because the Invaders use Getter Rays incorrectly. Rather than simply inundating themselves in the Getter and allowing evolution to take its course, they forcibly "evolve" themselves. To the Anti-Spirals, the Invaders are not "evolving" so much as they are simply growing bigger and more primal. After all, Stinger and Cohen are the only examples of sapient Invaders after [[spoiler: Saotome]] kicked the bucket.\\
"Correct" evolution is meant to be a slow process that increases not power and size (like in the case of Invaders), but all the attributes of a living thing. The Invaders do not contribute to Spiral Nemesis because they have no souls and therefore their rapid evolution does not increase entropy as much as a Spiral's would.\\
Anti-Spiral himself states that regardless of how much the Invaders evolve, they are mindless beasts and therefore can be easily dealt with at the moment of his choosing.

Genki went [[GoMadFromTheRevelation insane]] after witnessing her death and it takes her ([[SamusIsAGirl yes, her]]) more than ten years to recover. Dr. Saotome believed that Michiru had been killed by the Getter guys, blamed them for Michiru's death, and then... yeah.]]
* TheChick: Most versions.
* [[spoiler:CharacterOutlivesActor: Along with others in the manga.]]
* GoOutWithASmile: In ''Armageddon'' [[spoiler: despite the horrible circumstances of her death.]]
* HotScientist: ''New''
* IdenticalStranger: To [[spoiler: Hayato's MissingMom]] in the original anime.
* MsFanservice: In ''Manga/{{Devilman}} vs Getter Robo''.
* PluckyGirl
* TookALevelInBadass:
** The 70's anime version did actually join in battles, to the point she flew the Liger machine in Getter G!
** The New version is a deadpan snarker hot scientist. Awesome!

!Lady Raikou Minamoto

-->'''Voiced by''': Creator/RomiPark (Japanese), Creator/MonaMarshall (English)

->'''First Apperance:''' '''New Getter Robo''
* CuteBruiser
* {{Expy}}: A stretch, but she would be one to Kei Kuruma from Armageddon, since both are gender flips of male characters (Genki Saotome for Kei, and Raikou herself to Raikou... himself?).
* GenderFlip
* HeroicSuicide: Kills herself via Seppuku to power-up her katana.
* LadyOfWar

!Genki Saotome

* CheerfulChild
* CreepyChild: Only in ''Armageddon''. But the kid's creepiness in that continuity is enough ''for the whole franchise.''
** [[spoiler: BreakTheCutie - GoMadFromTheRevelation: The reason. After witnessing Michiru's death and noticing the truth behind it, poor Genki totally lost it.]]
* [[spoiler: RaisedAsTheOppositeGender: Again, only in ''Armageddon''.]]
* [[spoiler: SheIsAllGrownUp: In ''Armageddon''... because Genki not only is a girl there, but she is ''Kei''.]]
* TagAlongKid

!Professor Saotome

-->'''Voiced by''': Kousei Tomita (original series, ''Shin vs Neo''), Creator/{{Mugihito}} (''Armageddon''), Masaharu Sato (''Daikessen''), Kinryuu Arimoto (''New''), Abe Lasser (''New'' dub)

* [[spoiler: BackFromTheDead: ''Armageddon''.]]
* BadassGrandpa: ''Specially'' in ''New''.
* CoolOldGuy
* [[spoiler: DisappearsIntoLight: His fate in the manga, when the Saotome lab is enveloped in a massive wave of Getter Rays from the Shin Dragon]].
* [[spoiler: DyingAsYourself: One way to interpret his death in ''Armageddon''.]]
* [[spoiler: GoodAllAlong]] The ''[[spoiler: Armageddon]]'' version. It seems he pulled a [[XanatosGambit monster of a plan]] that went wrong in the third episode and it got delayed.
* '''JerkAss''': And how! He's such an asshole that he almost makes '''[[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion Gendo]]''' of all people look like a saint. It's still just a tad subverted though in that while he ''is'' a douchebag of epic proportions, (at least in the manga,) he still ultimately has the best interests of Earth in mind rather than having some sort of hidden agenda, and he does truly care for his kids. [[Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion Unlike some bespectacled asshats we may have already mentioned...]]
* TheProfessor
* MadeOfIron: In most continuities but in the first three episodes of Armageddon he just keeps seemingly dying but still lives. [[spoiler: Unless Inagawa had him intentionally infected himself with Invaders, like Cohen and Stinger, and he was faking pain.]]
* [[spoiler: MadScientist: In ''Armageddon''. Then again, it's ''Armageddon''.]]
** [[spoiler: Not that he doesn't have his moments in manga and ''New'', but there he is on good guy's side.]]
** [[spoiler: He goes off the deep end in the ''Shin Getter Robo'' manga, where he spends several weeks exposing himself to high levels of Getter Rays while trying to excavate the metamorphosing remains of the Getter G.]]
* TakingYouWithMe: In ''Armageddon'', [[spoiler: to the Invader Parasite that's trying to flee from his body when he gets hit with the Stoner Sunshine.]]
* ThisIsUnforgivable: In Saisei-Hen, which was given to him by [[Anime/GenesisOfAquarion Apollo]]
--> '''Apollo(nius)''': "Ba'al... you really are beasts. You who cannot fathom the love and compassion of Man do not deserve to exist beneath the Sun. Ba'al, the Mechanical Angel Aquarion hereby refutes your existence! Behold! The power of mankind... and the power of life!"
---> *[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8f8VysM-m9U Cue Aquarion manifesting the true Wings of the Sun and one-shotting Saotome's Metal Beast Dragon upside the head with the Infinite Sword]].*
