     Maskmen 

Takeru/Red Mask | Actor: Ryosuke Kaizu

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/redmask_8141.jpg
The leader of the Maskmen, the first to be spotted by Commander Sugata. Expert in Karate and is a Formula One race driver. He met and fell in love with a girl named Mio, and even when she is revealed as Princess Iyal, he still clings to be reunited, giving him strength to push on. Used to be an extremely bratty kid, but after meeting his grown-up self, he matured up. Though he's basically The Hero, he's much more temperamental.

Kenta/Black Mask | Actor: Kouichi Kusakari

The sub-leader and a Kobudo expert. More laid back than Takeru and likes chasing girls (mostly with no avail or luck, either he backs down, the girl is oblivious, or dies). Has an Old Master.

Akira/Blue Mask | Actor: Issei Hirota

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/bluemask_3806.jpg
The youngest of the team, Chinese Boxing and swordplaying expert and the one to crack jokes, most of the time. He left his mother to train (actually was drafted to the Maskman force) and strives to make his mother proud by training hard.

  • Brainwashed and Crazy: At one point, he's possessed by a monster, turning him into the fencer Unas and proceeds to OWN the Maskmen, HARD. He gets better, of course.
  • Child Prodigy: Was recognized by Sugata as one in the ways of martial arts, which is why he was chosen for Maskman.
  • Dual Tonfas: Masky Tonfas
  • Heroes Prefer Swords: He's an expert at swordplay...but his individual weapon is tonfa.
  • Just a Kid: He really doesn't like being treated as a kid at first, even if he is only sixteen.

Haruka/Yellow Mask | Actress: Yuki Nagata

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/yellowmask_3254.jpg
A Ninja (and damn proud of it). Ever since she's a child, she's raised without enjoying girly things (like dolls). As such, she has a hidden sensitive spot for girly things. She's best buds with Momoko.

Momoko/Pink Mask | Actress: Kanako Maeda

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/pinkmask_9514.jpg
A gentle hearted girl who is really kind to children and teaches martial arts in her free time. She's an expert in Tai Chi Quan and tends to get very emotional in things she does. Best buds with Haruka.

     Allies 

Commander Sanjurou Sugata

Mio/Princess Iyal

Ryo Asuka/X1 Mask | Actor: Shinji Higashi

A One-Shot Character who briefly joined the Maskman team as its sixth member.

     Tube Empire 

Emperor Zeba/Rizal Doggler II

  • Eldritch Abomination: He turns out to be the spawn of an earlier Eldritch Abomination, Rizal Doggler, destroyed by the original Tube royal family. Driven both by hatred against humans on both sides of the crust as well as his ancestor's lust for domination, he wiped out all of the Tube royal family save Ial and Igam, whom he used as his pawns.
  • One-Winged Angel: His true form, Rizal Doggler II
  • Technicolor Death: Bleeds red energy like other Ground Beasts then melts into energy which forms into a face which float up in the sky and explodes four times.

Baraba

Igam

  • Combat Stilettos: They're there, but more for making Igam taller than to be sexy.

Oyo-bu

Fu-Min

  • Anti-Villain: Type I. Fu-Min's loyalty to Igam is extreme, but genuine that she sometimes showed even compassion to the frozen Ial. She also pretty much sacrificed her life so Igam can live and redeem herself.

Anagamas

Thief Knight Kiros

  • Knight in Shining Armor: Subverted. While he does save girls like one occasionally, his motto is "I always get what I want", which horribly clashes with the meaning of the trope.

Okelampa

  • Catch-Phrase - "Yare Yare..."
  • Damaged Soul: Creatures he revives will always be snarling, rampaging beasts, even if they were capable of speech beforehand.
