Toshikazu Asagi

Voiced by: Shintaro Asanuma (Japanese), Corey Hartzog (English)

Kei Kugimiya

Voiced by: Yoko Hikasa (Japanese), Genevieve Simmons (English)

  • Alliterative Name
  • Clingy Jealous Girl: Heavily implied to be this concerning Izuru. In episode 9, she doesn't seem too happy when Izuru sees Teoria. And in episode 10, she constantly gives him dirty looks anytime he's talking to, or about, Teoria.
  • Death Glare: Gives one to Izuru after he describes watching the porn video as "refreshing".
  • "Do It Yourself" Theme Tune: Sings the 2nd ending, "Arigatou. Tadaima", with Tamaki.
  • Image Song: "Aitai yo ~No one else~" ("I Want To See You ~No one else~") and "Hanashi wo shiyou" ("Let's talk")
  • Mission Control: Her unit, Purple-2, acts as this in the battlefield, providing various long range sensor data and issuing commands to the other ASHMB units.
  • Relationship Sabotage: In episode 16, she pleads with Toshikazu to go with Izuru when the latter is asked out on a dinner date with Teoria. Luckily for her, Izuru also insists he goes, claiming he'll feel a little more at ease with him there.
  • The Smart Guy: Purple-2 plays the role of Mission Control.
  • The Stoic
  • Sweet Tooth: She likes her things sweeter than anyone else can stand.
    Tamaki: Do ants come after you in your sleep?
  • Team Chef
    • 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.

Tamaki Irie

Voiced by: Yuka Iguchi (Japanese), Monica Rial (English)

  • Berserk Button: Izuru's insensitivity concerning her nonexistent love life.
  • Big Eater
  • The Big Guy: Due to her AHSMB's large boosters her mech when armored is the largest of Team Rabbits capable of even acting as a transport carrier for some of the others when necessary.
  • Cartwright Curse: Patrick dies shortly before he is able to give a Love Confession to her, although he tells others about his plan prior to his final mission.
  • Cat Smile: She displays one occasionally.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: She's ditzy and not very bright, but at the same time, she's also apparently has the second-highest sync ratio on the team, after Izuru.
  • The Ditz
    • Genius Ditz: When it comes to love, she actually studies on it and can quote scientific studies.
  • "Do It Yourself" Theme Tune: Sings the 2nd ending, "Arigatou. Tadaima", with Kei.
  • Fragile Speedster: Her AHSMB is the fastest of all the mechs but is in big trouble whenever something breaks through or gets past her shields.
  • Gainaxing
  • Image Song: "Girls Of Summer" and "Go☆ahead"
  • Oblivious to Love Later when Patrick of Team Doberman appears to have developed a crush on her and almost tells her he came to Ange's welcome party just to see her, until she sees Giulano and blows past him. She realizes he has a crush on her after he dies.
  • Serial Romeo: Much to her dismay.

Ataru Suruga

Voiced by: Junya Ikeda (Japanese), Tyler Galindo (English)

  • Anime Hair:
  • 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 Chick
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: For all his quirks, he's still incredibly skilled in long-range combat.
  • "Do It Yourself" Theme Tune: Sings the 3rd ending theme, "Bokutachi wa Ikiteiru", with Izuru and Asagi.
  • Friendly Sniper: He generally provides long-range support from the Gold-4, and keeps his cheery demeanor the entire time.
  • Image Song: "Trigger" and "Koi no Sniper" ("Love Sniper")
  • Megane
  • Military Otaku: To the point he knows the individual prices for the munitions he uses in combat.

Kuroki Ange

Voiced By: Akeno Watanabe (Japanese), Kalin Coates (English)

  • 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, his/her split personality means that s/he is either paralyzed by indecision or a full on berserker, unable to follow orders. While his/her skills have kept him/her 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 McCoolname: "Black Angel".
  • The Berserker: The masculine personality is this, with most of his/her lines being screaming or cursing as s/he charges 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.
  • Roar Dakka: Lets out a Cluster F-Bomb during his/her Unstoppable Rage.
  • Sixth Ranger: In episode 13, he joins team Rabbits. Bonus points for his 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 he doesn't get to fight the enemy's Ace.

    Team Doberman 

Randy Maxwell

Voiced by; Anri Katsu (Japanese), Andrew Love (English)

  • Big Brother Mentor: To Izuru
  • Casanova Wannabe: To the embarrassment of many of his teammates since he hits on every woman he comes across.
  • Catch Phrase: Tally Ho!
  • 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 Micheal 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
  • Red-Headed Hero
  • 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.

Patrick Hoyle

Voiced by: Ayumu Murase (Japanese), Johnny De La Cerda (English)

Rakesh Chandrasekhar

Voiced by: Yuuki Fujiwara (Japanese), Kyle Jones (English)

  • Big Damn Heroes: Episode 23, leads a fleet of mass produced Rhino units that help turn the tide Amane's fleet during the Final battle.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Constantly snarks at Randy.
  • The Lancer: To Randy
  • Number Two: On Team Doberman
  • Self-Sacrifice Scheme: Tries to do this for Patrick only to wind up surviving and being the only member of his team to make it back with the critical mission information.
  • Sole Survivor: By the end of episode 19, he is the last living member of the original Team Doberman.

    GDF 

Rin Suzukaze

Voiced by: Miyuki Sawashiro (Japanese), Shelley Calene-Black (English)

Simon Gato

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
  • Death Seeker: According to his monologue at the end of episode 24.
  • Good Scars, Evil Scars: A massive one over his left eye.
  • Luke, I Am Your Father: He is the genetic donor to Asagi and Izuru.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: He tends to make calm, calculated decisions unlike General Komine. He is also largely responsible for humanity simply not being wiped out by the Wulgaru thanks to access to certain technology, as well as the training of the AHSMB pilots.

Komine

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 / Karma Houdini: Has yet to be punished for his stupidity.
  • 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.

Amane

Voiced by Masumi Asano (Japanese), Luci Christian (English)

  • 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 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.
    • Case in point: 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.

Giulano

Voiced by: Kosuke Toriumi (Japanese), John Gremillion (English)

  • Bishounen
  • Bridge Bunnies: One part of a male pair version along with Siegfried.
  • 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.

Lula

Voiced by: Toudou Mai (Japanese), Luci Christian (English)

  • The Medic: She does the physical exams on Team Rabbits.
  • Ms. Exposition: Normally provides it in regards to the pilots health or their harmonics outside of battle.

    Wulgaru 

Prince Jiart

Voiced by: Hikaru Midorikawa (Japanese), David Matranga (English)

  • 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
  • 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.
  • Killed Off for Real: Izuru finally takes him down in the last episode of the anime.
  • Long-Lost Relative: He is Izuru's biological uncle.
  • The Sociopath: Like most of the Wulgaru, he trusts his instincts and desires above all else.
  • Spell My Name with an S
  • White Hair, Black Heart
  • 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.

Lutiel

Voiced by: Yukana (Japanese), Emily Neves (English)

  • 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.

Klein

Voiced by: Kazutomi Yamamoto (Japanese), Greg Ayres (English)

Radha

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.
  • Killed Off for Real: The second Wulgaru commander to die.

Lumes

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.
    • 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.

King Galkie

Voiced by: Kiyoyuki Yanada (Japanese), Marty Fleck (English)

  • Big Bad: Leader of the Wulgaru.
  • 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.

Dolgana

Anna

Voiced by: Rina Hidaka (Japanese), Luci Christian (English)

    Others 

Teoria

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: In episode 10 she hints this at Izuru when he says he doesn't remember anything from his past besides her for some reason. However, she's unable to tell him more at that time. This may also be why Prince Jiart let him go in episode 8 after seeing him in person during their fight.
  • 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, making her a bit older than that.
  • 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.
