- The Ace: Starts acting like an Ace version of himself in episode 15, while his harmonic level is still spiked. Once it drops down again, he starts behaving normally once more.

- The Casanova: Acts like a stereotypical one for a while in episode 15.
- Chainsaw Good: One of Red 5's signature weapons is a Wave-Motion Tuning Fork with a chainsaw running the length of each "prong".

- Even the Guys Want Him: Played for Laughs in episode 15, with Suruga and Asagi.
- Half-Human Hybrid: He's half-Wulgaru, as the genetic son of Teoria and Simon. This is suggested to be one of the reasons he masters the JURIA-System so quickly.
- The Hero/The Leader: Designated leader of Team Rabbits. He declares his intention to become a Hero, which everyone else thinks is stupidly idealistic.
- Image Song: "Destiny" and "Bokutachi no Team" ("Our Team")

- Law of Chromatic Superiority / Red Is Heroic
- Let's Get Dangerous: When he starts to master his AHSMB controls, he is quite a deadly fighter. Outside of combat, he's still Team Rabbits' Butt Monkey.
- Long-Lost Relative: Turns out the DNA used to modify him comes from Teoria, Commander Simon is genetically his father and Asagi is his older brother.

- Alliterative Name: Kei Kugimiya.

- The Smart Guy: Purple-2 plays the role of Mission Control.
- The Stoic: It's noted that she has trouble expressing her real feelings, which is suspected to be a reason the ASHMB doesn't respond quite as well to her.
- Sweet Tooth: She likes her things sweeter than anyone else can stand.Tamaki: Do ants come after you in your sleep?
- Team Chef: She likes to think of herself this way, and enjoys baking cakes and having everyone eat them. Unfortunately, she's a Cordon Bleugh Chef: she doesn't realize that not everybody likes having copious amount of sugar in their sweets. One of her sweets actually nearly kills a recovering Izuru, who was acting weirdly like The Ace version of himself. He seems to have returned to normal after the medical staff revived him.
- Ace Pilot: After getting the hang of the JURIA system, she can pull off some impressive maneuvers with her Rose 3, piloting it in a planet's gravity well just as nimbly as in space.

- Antenna Hair: Has two large horn-like tufts that stick out.
- Badass Boast: Never misses a chance to brag about his sniping skills whenever he starts racking up long-range kills.
- Casanova Wannabe: Constantly tries to hit on women, even though he usually descends into comparing them favorably to military weapons they have no idea about. Despite his talk he is something of a Chivalrous Pervert, when the other male pilots have no problems watching porn, he usually feels uncomfortable and tries to leave the room.

- The Ace: Episode 14 basically has a long montage dedicated to Ange destroying Team Rabbits in each of their areas of expertise.
- Broken Ace: As good as Ange is, their split personality means that they are either paralyzed by indecision or a full on berserker, unable to follow orders. While their skills have kept them alive, time will only tell if this will become a liability.
- Ambiguous Gender: The team can't decide if the new recruit is a guy or a girl, and all of them call Ange a "him" and "her" at various points.
- When Izuru asked in episode 14, Ange simply cuts him off and with a hint of emotion, ends the conversation.
- Attack! Attack! Attack!: Ange's default tactic in battle. He/she generally goes on the offensive as much as possible, and doesn't worry too much about defense.
- Awesome McCool Name: "Black Angel".
- The Berserker: The masculine personality is this, with most of their lines being screaming or cursing as they charge headfirst into danger.
- Blood Knight: Displays this personality when fighting in their mech. So much so that during their intro battle in episode 13, the rest of Team Rabbits is shocked at Ange's behavior during the fight.
- New Meat: Joins Team Rabbits in episode 13.
- Not So Above It All: When Ange spots the guys watching a porn video in episode 19, Randy attempts to turn it off. That only seems to anger Ange, who says watching such videos gives a similar feeling when fighting. Randy agrees, and says watching such videos motivates him to protect the next generation, then promptly forgets the point he was trying to make.
- Shouting Shooter: Lets out a Cluster F-Bomb during his/her Unstoppable Rage.
- Sixth Ranger: In episode 13, they join Team Rabbits. Bonus points for their unit named Black Six.
- Split Personality: Seems to go between a Shrinking Violet and a Jerk Ass Blood Knight which maybe a byproduct of the AHSMB's personality overriding Ange's.
- Unstoppable Rage: Tends to completely flip during combat, especially if they don't get to fight the enemy's Ace.
- Big Brother Mentor: To Izuru, and to the rest of Team Rabbits to a lesser extent.
- Casanova Wannabe: To the embarrassment of many of his teammates since he hits on every woman he comes across.
- Catch Phrase: Tally Ho!
- Character Death: He sacrifices himself after entrusting Rakesh with the information on the Gate's location.
- Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: He acts like an idiot most of the time, but he also led his team through many of the early battles of the war in units which are far inferior to Team Rabbits'.
- Defiant to the End: His unit shredded, bleeding heavily, low on ammo and against a whole Wulguru battle fleet. He flies right at them to give Rakesh time to get back to the ship.
- '80s Hair: With a mullet that would do Michael Knight proud.
- Heroic Sacrifice: Dies protecting Rakesh, and allowing him to escape with the information on the location of the Gate.
- Mentor Occupational Hazard: Is killed off in Episode 19 getting information critical for Earth forces in the war.
- Mr. Vice Guy: He may be an egotistical lecher, but not only does he have many heroic moments under his belt as leader of Team Dobermen, he also is one of the first people who's not a member of the Godinion crew to show Team Rabbits any respect.
- Too Kinky to Torture: He seems to have a thing for the higher ranking female officers, noticing that several of the women in the adult videos they watch resemble them, such as Amane. In episode 19, both Patrick and Rakesh joke that he seems to be the type of guy that likes to be stepped on. He essentially agrees with them.
- Weak, but Skilled: Like the rest of Team Doberman, their AHSMB Rhino units are prototypes for Team Rabbit's suits better then the normal weapons the military has but not as powerful.

- Amazon Chaser: Develops a crush on Tamaki after she helped save Team Doberman in Episode 14.

- Mistaken for Gay: Tamaki seems to think this in episode 19, asking if he was after any of the guys she was attracted too.

- Sweet Tooth: Is seen with sucking on lollipops in about half her scenes and gives them out to Team Rabbits when their down. She even tries to put them in sake!
Voiced by: Hiroki Tochi (Japanese), Jay Hickman (English)
- Big Good: Or at least the closest thing the setting has to one. As the head of the MJP, he was the person who spearheaded the development of the AHSMB and was responsible for training the recruits to pilot them.
- Cool Shades: He's never seen without... whatever that thing is over his eyes.
- Death Seeker: According to his monologue at the end of episode 24.
- Good Scars, Evil Scars: A massive one over his left eye.

Voiced by: Toshiharu Nakanishi (Japanese), John Swasey (English)
- Attack Attack ATTACK: He refuses to retreat because of his pride.
- General Failure:
- He thought he had found an Urgal supply route and sent Team Rabbits to destroy it. It turned out, it was a group of heavily-armed recon units.
- In episode 7, he steals Lt. Amane's battle plans and passes it off as his own only to even wreck those when the sudden appearance of the enemy causes him to launch the attack fleet before Lt. Amane believed they were prepared for to counter.
- Hate Sink: He has no real redeeming qualities, and is such a moronic leader that when he finally gets the boot, no one misses him.
- Idiot Houdini: He is never shown being punished for his idiotic decisions, but he does disappear from the show following the disaster at Ceres.
- Jerkass: He's pretty much just a terrible person overall, with no real redeeming qualities.
- Lethally Stupid: To put it nicely, the man's just an overall incompetent moron.
- Never My Fault: Due to his pride and ego, any and all failures on his part are due to someone else. Fortunately for those surviving under his command, he's removed from his post after a few disastrous battles that cost countless lives.
- Pride: His ego is probably the biggest one in the show.
- Beleaguered Assistant: To Komine.
- Dude, Where's My Respect?: Eventually averted, after suffering under Komine's command for long enough her efforts are recognized by the GDF who promotes her not once, but twice. She is given her own ship as well as command of Team Doberman.
- Field Promotion: Due to being rather competent (compared to Komine anyway), and the sheer losses of leaders suffered during various engagements with the Wulgaru, she is given some promotions (yes, plural) in episode 15.
- Only Sane Man: At least regarding the GDF military leadership. Aside from Simon and Team Rabbits, she's the only one that has some luck fighting against the Wulgaru and attempts to form tactics that could stand a chance against them.
- Perpetual Frowner: Well when you're an assistant to General Komine, you'd stop smiling too. Post-promotion, she smiles a couple of times.
- The Strategist: Unlike Komine, her plans are actually fairly well thought out. While they don't always hold up in actual combat, she is also smart enough to realize when they may need to try something different during the fighting as conditions change on the battlefield.
- Bridge Bunnies: One part of a male pair version along with Siegfried.
- The Nicknamer: Refers to the Team in general, and Tamaki in particular, as "kitten". Tamaki responds very well to this.
- The Tease: Part of his natural personality but later ordered to do so with Tamaki especially as part of a experiment to get her harmonics to rise.
- Badass: Throughout the series most of the time he actually fights someone either dies or he lets them go after displaying how outclassed they were.
- Blood Knight: He refuses to take part in overall strategy, preferring to focus exclusively on his chosen "prey". He even refuses to retreat despite his only way home about to explode forever because he was just that into his fight with Izuru.
- Char Clone: He's Dragon with an Agenda, he's The Rival, he pilots an Ace Custom mecha, and his sister is working for the opposed faction.
- Disk One Final Boss: He is the main antagonist for most of the anime, and he ends up being the last enemy Izuru faces in the story. However, at the same time, the ending shows that while the Wulgaru have been bloodied, they are far from broken, and Galkie implies that he's going to be attacking Earth personally soon enough, which puts him into this territory.
- The Dreaded: All of the members of Team Rabbits and even some Wulgaru are terrified of him. And with good reason, too.
- Duel Boss: Every time Izuru ends up fighting him, it turns out this way, primarily since none of the other members of Team Rabbits seem to be able to keep up with the two of them.
- Expy: He looks like a demon fusion of Rau Le Creuset from Mobile Suit Gundam SEED and Griffith from Berserk.
- Hidden Depths: He's far more than just a brainless brute who knows only how to fight. Jiart has also shown to be extremely skilled at playing politics, and has demonstrated incredible foresight in his plotting.
- Long-Lost Relative: He is Izuru's biological uncle, though we never see if either of them learn this fact.
- The Sociopath: Like most of the Wulgaru, he trusts his instincts and desires above all else.
- Worthy Opponent: Sees all of humanity as this, due to how long they have held out against the Wulgaru invasion, to the point where he insists that the other commanders address them as "humans", the name that they chose for themselves, rather than just as the "inferior species". However, this attitude is especially pronounced towards Izuru, since he is the only person who seems to be able to fight on par with Jiart.
- The Baroness: Very much understands and enjoys the thrill of Wulgaru's Hunt even when implied the one being hunted is one of their own as shown in episode 18 with Radha clearly being set up.
- Blood Knight: shown back in Episode 8, she was grinning like the devil as she fought. Shows off her blood lust again in Episode 19.
- Dark Action Girl: Her combat skills and speed seem superior when fighting against a Team Rabbits member individually. She even manages to fight a few of them at once for a short while.
- Face Death with Dignity: Takes her soon to be death with great dignity and her only complaint being that it's not beautiful.
- Hero Killer: Her personal fleet is responsible for killing at least 2/3s of Team Doberman.
- Light Is Not Good: Lutiel's Wulgaru unit and her entire fleet is made of Golden colored units.
- Rasputinian Death: Hers consisted of Tamaki catching with a rope, followed by Asagi and Ange bombarding her with More Dakka before being fried by a Wave Motion Gun.
- The Smurfette Principle: So far, she is the only female commander in the Wulgaru army.
- Winged Humanoid: Her personal Wulgaru unit is one with wings.
- Attack! Attack! Attack!: It seems to be the only strategy he knows.
- Blood Knight: Always seems eager to jump into battle.
- Rasputinian Death: It takes quite a bit to kill him, from Suruga's Death from Above attack twice, combined with Izuru and Toshikazu stabbing him repeatedly and Tamaki ramming parts of her unit into him.
Voiced by: Chihiro Suzuki (Japanese), Patrick Poole (English)
- Big Bad Wannabe: The first Wulgaru to appear and only really shows any back bone when he is leading the charge against helpless GDF forces before Team Rabbits arrives.
- Dirty Coward: Runs once the fight starts to turn away from him in most cases.
- He Knows Too Much: When he overhears a secret conversation between Jiart and Lumes, he knows they're going to kill him for it. He's right.
Voiced by: Junichi Suwabe (Japanese), Ricardo Contreras (English)
- My Master, Right or Wrong: His family has served the royal family for generations and is so loyal that when a member of the family asks him to do something even if it conflicts with what another one says he will do it including hiding the knowledge of Teoria being on Earth from King Galkie at Jiart's request. And in fact, when Teoria gives the order to leave during the battle to protect the Gate, both him and his fleet leave.
- The Strategist: Came up with a strategy that allowed his forces to land on a GDF planet, hack into their systems and disappear before the Earth forces were the wiser.
- The Unfought: He was shown to be one of the most crafty and tactical of the Wulgaru leaders but never directly challenges anyone while completing most of the missions he was given. At the end of series he withdraws his forces along with a good chunk of the Wulgaru armada without ever going into battle himself.
Voiced by: Kiyoyuki Yanada (Japanese), Marty Fleck (English)
- Big Bad: The leader of the Wulgaru and the main antagonist of the series.
- Reasonable Authority Figure: At least compared to how the other Wulgaru commanders tend to act.
- The Unfought: He doesn't take part in the final battle of the anime. It also means he's still around to pose a threat to Earth despite their hard earned victory.
Voiced by: Masanori Machida (Japanese), George Manley (English)
- Blood Knight: Though it's been a long time since he's ever felt like it. That is until the battle to destroy the Gate where he gets into his personal unit.
- Evil Cannot Comprehend Good: He is puzzled by the earthlings' desire to help each other out, but decides to ignore it since hunting genes is the Wulgaru way of life.
- Good Scars, Evil Scars: Two of them on his face.
- Old Soldier: He's said to be the Wulgaru's greatest general, and is older than all the other Wulgaru commanders, with the possible exception of King Galkie.

Voiced by: Shizuka Ito (Japanese), Maggie Flecknoe (English)
- Defector from Decadence: She ditched her fellow Wulgaru and takes some of their technology with her to warn humanity of the invasion.
- Expy: Her design, personality and role in the series is similair to Lacus Clyne from Gundam SEED and Gundam SEED Destiny, And then it's subverted when we find out that she's the protagonist's mother, not his love interest.
- Forgotten First Meeting: Izuru "remembers" her for some reason, despite his memories having been wiped. It turns out they knew each other prior to the memory wiping, and Teoria says they were close friends.
- Luke, I Am Your Father: She is the genetic donor to Izuru.
- Older Than They Look: Despite looking about the same age as the members of Team Rabbits, she is the genetic donor for at least Izuru, implying she's at least in her thirties, but is likely even older.
- Pink Means Feminine: Her personal Wulgaru unit is pink and white.
- Royals Who Actually Do Something: She's a Princess and sister of Jiart, who has been aiding mankind ever since she defected. In episode 20, she demonstrates that she is a fully capable pilot, and will be joining the assault on the Gate.
