[[folder:The Akibarangers]]

!'''Nobuo Akagi/Akiba Red''' | [-Live Actor: Masato Wada-]
A 29-year old Super Sentai and Aoi fan, delivery man of Sasaki Ponpoko Delivery, and field leader of the Akibarangers.

* AccidentalMisnaming: Known to Sayaka only as 'Ponpoko-san' thanks to his work uniform.
* AnimeHair: On his HELMET, of all things. Can be used as a weapon.
* AscendedFanboy: Even more so than [[Series/KaizokuSentaiGokaiger Gai Ikari]] (Well, he's more of a fanboy, but arguably less ascended since his team is unofficial).
** Lampshaded in S2#13, when the akibarangers say that they are bigger fans that a certain [[Series/KaizokuSentaiGokaiger hearty silver guy.]]
* BasementDweller: 29 years old and living with his mother.
* BrainsAndBrawn: The brains to Mitsuki's brawn.
* ChivalrousPervert: Especially in season 2, where he doesn't have a specific love interest to focus on.
* DeadAllAlong: 2-13
* TheDulcineaEffect: Hopelessly devoted towards "his" Sayaka. [[spoiler: To the point that when Marushina disguised herself as Sayaka to shoot him, he fell for it three times in a row. He was drunk that time though. During S1#9, it actually helps motivate him to transform IN THE REAL WORLD.]]
** In season 2, since Sayaka has moved away he seems to have transferred more of his affection toward Aoi-tan, to the point that [[spoiler:it's the source of his SuperMode]].
* FaceDeathWithDignity: [[spoiler: After realizing that he's doomed at the end of 2-12, he tells everyone to keep watching ''Sentai'' as he is killed mid-sentence.]]
* FinishingMove: ''Akiba Underground Culture Attack''[[note]](While using the Bouken Scooper)[[/note]]
** [[spoiler: ''Munya Slash''[[note]](As Super Akiba Red while using MMZ-02: Munya Munya Zubaan)[[/note]]]]
** [[spoiler: ''[=MunyuMoe=] Prominence''[[note]](As Super Akiba Red while using his [[MixAndMatchWeapon [=MunyuMoe=] [=ZubaKyuun=]]])[[/note]]]]
** [[spoiler: ''[=MunyuMoe=] Crusher''[[note]](A PistolWhip with the [=MunyuMoe=] [=ZubaKyuun=])[[/note]]]]
* GenreSavvy: He's such a huge Sentai buff that he can relate event flags from various series to what's actually happening to the Akibarangers, and predict what happens next. [[spoiler:Turns out this wasn't mere coincidence.]]
* HeroicSacrifice: In 2-12.
* {{Homage}}: Himself and his suit has some to several super sentai red rangers: His SuperSentaiStance (spread open legs and outstretched arms) is similar to [[Series/HimitsuSentaiGoranger Aka Ranger's]] and [[Series/DaiSentaiGoggleFive Goggle Red's]] pose; His helmet's "hair" is similar to [[Series/BattleFeverJ Battle Japan's]] asymmetric helmet; The gold sideways "V-streak" on his helmet's "hair" is similar to Aka Red's gold "V" on his helmet; [[NamesTheSame His family name is pronounced the same as]] [[Series/DenshiSentaiDenziman Ippei Akagi's (Denzi Red's) family name]].
* KilledOffForReal: [[spoiler: Along with Luna and Yumeria at the end of 2-12. And don't let 2-13 fool you; he really is dead.]]
%%* TheKirk
%%* KnifeNut: Munyu Munyu Z-Baan
%%** BifurcatedWeapon: Moe Moe Z-Cune + Munyu Munyu Z-Baan = [[HandCannon Munyu Moe Zubakyuuun]].
%%* LargeHam
%%* TheLeader: Or at least he tries to be.
%%* NerdsAreVirgins
* NonstandardCharacterDesign: The girls may fit right in with toku heroines past and present, but Nobuo's actor looks like he'd be more suited for a Hongkong sex farce. It's all deliberate, of course.
* OlderThanTheyLook: Nobuo is 29, although he could easily pass as a man in his early-to-mid 20s. This also extends in real life, as his actor is actually 32.
%%* TheOneGuy
* {{Otaku}}
* RealityWarper: [[spoiler: His delusion level eventually becomes [[{{Determinator}} so high]] that he can use his powers just as effectively in the real world, which essentially has this effect.]]
** This is taken UpToEleven when he becomes so deluded he [[spoiler: becomes aware of [[RealLife the fact that he's living in a TV show.]]]] While this is certainly an example of [[spoiler:BreakingTheFourthWall]], it wouldn't have been possible if [[ItMakesSenseInContext he wasn't as deluded as he was.]]
* {{Robosexual}}: As revealed in S2#6, he loves smooth shiny cute robot girls.
* TheSmartGuy: He is capable of analyzing the villains' weaknesses and clichés.
* SuperDickery: [[spoiler: Had to treat his teammates as crap as part of a plan to [[ItMakesSenseInContext defeat an enemy successfully.]]]]
* SuperMode: Super Akiba Red
* ThrowTheDogABone: In #2 when he gets to meet DekaRed...his actor tells him it's just a costume for a Series/PowerRangersSPD event. But Sainei decides to be a nice guy anyways and thanks him for being a fan.
* UseYourHead: Either to headbutt or AS A SAW. [[spoiler: In season 2, in his super mode he uses his head for fire lighting in his finishing move.]]

!'''Mitsuki Aoyagi/Akiba Blue''' | [-Live Actress: Kyoko Hinami-]
A teen martial-artist and Aoi fan. She is not much of a Sentai fan at first but gets into it late in the series.

* {{Tsundere}}: Usually ''tsun-tsun'' in general, but hits ''dere-dere'' mode once Aoi-tan is involved.
* TheWatson: When it comes to Sentai.
* WrestlerInAllOfUs: Has been seen to use several [[ProfessionalWrestling pro-wrestling]] grapples, including a hurricanrana-into-armdrag and a Boston crab.

!'''Yumeria Moegi''' | [-Live Actress: Karin Ogino-]
->[[spoiler:Real name: Yuko Yamada / Yuko Yokoyama (S2)]]

Cosplayer and dojin/dojinshi artist.

* AnimalEaredHeadband
* CatGirl: Most of the time.
* ChekhovsSkill: Her drawing, usually saved for her ''yaoi doujinshi'', comes in handy in S1#7 for drawing out the delusions [[spoiler:and leads to Hakase recognizing Marushina as ''her father's work''.]]
** [[spoiler: In S2#4, she made a special dojinshi for Nobuo which helped him get his super mode.]]
* TheChick
* ConfusionFu: Her fighting style is comical but effective, like [[Series/KaizokuSentaiGokaiger Gokai Green's]].
* CosplayOtakuGirl
** Her main costume is the yellow haired CatGirl.
** In S1#3, she is a [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair blue haired]] [[WholesomeCrossdresser elementary school boy]].
** At the end of three and in the intro, she is TheMadHatter.
** S1#4 has multiple due to the cosplay shop scene:
*** Her cosplay after the intro is a slightly different take on the school boy outfit from the previous episode. She now sports a dark blue wig, glasses, and a bowtie.
*** When she tries different cosplays in the shop she starts with a [[BadassPreacher Nun wielding a machine gun.]]
*** Next is a [[IndianMaiden Native American.]]
*** Third is Literature/LittleRedRidingHood.
*** And finally is [[Series/JukenSentaiGekiranger Mele]]. When she transforms, she even retains the Mele character!
** S1#5 she spends the entire episode as a Silver-Haired Alien.
*** Well mostly she trades in the silver wig for a pink one partway through.
** In S1#6, she's a ElegantGothicLolita that carries around a talking mannequin head.
** For the first 5 minutes of S1#7 she retains her Gothic Loli cosplay, then she dresses as Satomi from ''Z-Cune Aoi''. At the end of S1#7, she's dressed as a {{Samurai}} (in particular with UsefulNotes/DateMasamune's crescent helm, but none of his eyepatch)
** S1#9 has her dressed up as a bee girl and later a bunny girl.
** Of special note, [[spoiler:we see her as ''herself'' briefly in season 1's #7, #9 and #11 and in season 2's #2 and #4.]]
* DeadAllAlong: [[spoiler: 2-13]]
* DeceasedParentsAreTheBest: [[spoiler: In S1#5, we meet her mother, who taught her everything about cosplay. She even gets to transform into Akiba Yellow herself! When the fight is over, however, she is no where to be found. Yumeria then reveals to the team that she had been dead for several years.]]
* HappilyMarried: [[spoiler: Got married while she was away before she returned in S2#2. Nobuo didn't find out until S2#4.]]
* GirlishPigtails: Her helmet's hair in season 1. A bit of an ImpracticallyFancyOutfit when the enemy grabs them.
* ImprobableWeaponUser: The Akiba pylon, anyone?
* KilledOffForReal: [[spoiler: In 2-12 with Nobuo and Luna. Don't let 2-13 fool you; they're still dead.]]
* TheMcCoy
* MeaningfulName: {{Moe}}gi is an obvious one. As for ''Yumeria'', it is a combination of the Japanese word for [[CloudCuckoolander dream]] (''yume'') and the western name Amelia. [[spoiler: It's just an alias, however.]]
* OdangoHair: Her helmet's hair in season 2.
* OfficeLady: Her day job.
* OlderThanTheyLook: Reveals herself to be 23, but as of S1#5, she's 24. Averted in real life, as her actress is actually only 16.
** PlayingGertrude
* ShoutOutThemeNaming: Anime/{{Yumeria}}
* SpecialPersonNormalName: [[LampshadeHanging Lampshaded]]: her real name is noted to be very common.
* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: She's one of each to the different Akiba Blues.
** Season 1: Girly Girl to Mitsuki's Tomboy.
** Season 2: Tomboy to Luna's Girly Girl.
* TookALevelInBadass: Season 2 saw a lot of Yumeria's cosplays being less cutesy and more action-oriented (but still cute), given that Luna was now the team's girly-girl. It worked well to her advantage, because hero cosplays tend to influence her fighting style.
* VerbalTic: Depending on the costume - adding "nya"s to her dialogue as a catgirl, ending all her sentences with a combination of "pi", "pe", and "po" as an alien in S1#5, and so on.
** In S1#7, as a part of her Satomi cosplay, she usually starts sentences with "[insert adverb here] speaking" (ex. Tactically, Philosophically, Unofficially etc. speaking). [[spoiler:Then they are all dropped when we see her as ''herself'' in S1#9.]]
* VocalDissonance: [[spoiler: She dropped her AnimalEaredHeadband in S1#2. Her voice changed. Drastically. Though apparently, that isn't her "real" voice, as when we see her as herself she talks normally.]]
* YaoiFangirl: As demonstrated in S1#3 when she sees Akiba Red and the MonsterOfTheWeek being a ''tad too'' close. This actually caused them trouble as her YaoiFangirl delusions conflicted with Akiba Red's heroic delusions.

![[spoiler:'''Takuma Tsuzuki''' | [-Live Actor: Creator/ShinpeiTakagi-] ]]
[[spoiler:A half-Japanese Interpol agent who replaces Nobuo as the latter is called to serve in the Pentagon. He's also Hiroyo's half brother.]]

* TheAce
* ButNotTooForeign
* ConvenientReplacementCharacter
* FairCop
* GratuitousEnglish: Of the correctly pronounced variety, to remind the audience he's American.
* HotBlooded: In battle only, where he plays [[spoiler: the Showa Red Ranger very straight.]]
* InterpolSpecialAgent
* {{Leitmotif}}
* LockedOutOfTheLoop: [[spoiler: He fails to see the fourth wall when the other Akibarangers discover it.]]
* NiceGuy
* ParodyStu: Seems to be going off a checklist.
** AlwaysSomeoneBetter: With his skills as an Interpol agent, he's a much better fighter than Nobuo.
** AudibleGleam[=/=]TwinkleSmile
** ChickMagnet
** FriendToAllLivingThings
** LongLostRelative
** MagneticHero
* TraitorShot: [[spoiler: While the Akibarangers read the giveaway text generated by the [[BreakingTheFourthWall Fourth Wall,]] his face is zoomed in on with an expression that indicates that he may have known about the ExecutiveMeddling all along; [[FridgeLogic if he wasn't a creation of it in the first place.]]]]

!'''Luna Iwashimizu/Akiba Blue II''' | [-Live Actress: Shione Sawada-]
A teen who wants to be an idol.

* AloofAlly: Was this after #3, she wanted to focus on being an idol and the team being unofficial means she won't get discovered. She was this way until #5.
* BecomingTheMask: [[spoiler: At first only joining the Akibaranger to boost her idol career, but after 2-11, when the only boost available was to be a villain due to Malshina's screwing, she finally grew to value the friendship she had with the Akibarangers and decided to embrace being a 'heroine' instead of furthering her career.]]
* DeadAllAlong: [[spoiler: 2-13]]
* TheDitz: She can be a bit scatterbrained and often gives off responses.
* GenkiGirl: Works against her in battle at first, but Nobuo says she holds promise.
* GratuitousEnglish
** SurprisinglyGoodEnglish in #5
* KilledOffForReal: [[spoiler: In 2-12, along with Nobuo and Yumeria. Don't let 2-13 fool you; she's still dead.]]
* NotInThisForYourRevolution: Luna consistently shows little concern for what the Rangers are fighting for, as well as the Akibas themselves until Episode 2-7. Episode 2-11 reveals that she had [[spoiler: briefly considered [[FaceHeelTurn joining Malshina, since she only saw the Akibas as "stepping stones" towards her idol career.]]]] Of course, she inevitably bonded with them over the season's course and made the transition to actual hero. ([[ItMakesSenseInContext Or loose interpretation thereof.]])
* RippleEffectProofMemory: The only main character who doesn't have it. Whenever the villains alter history, she remembers the new version of events. As of episode 6, however, she has gained it and is now immune.
* StockingFiller: Her Akiba Blue suit has garter belts.
* TeenIdol: She aspires to be one.
* TomboyAndGirlyGirl: Girly Girl to Yumeria's Tomboy.
* TookALevelInBadass: In S2-11. Doing this actually drove Nobuo to [[ManlyTears tears]].

->[[spoiler:Also known as: Shuri Toyozuki, Hiroyo Tsuzuki]]

Manager of "Secret Base Cafe", mission control of the Akibarangers, [[spoiler:and in-universe voice actress of Aoi]].

* DrinkingOnDuty: With some ''huge'' bottles in S1#3.
* HotScientist: Well, she's not officially a scientist, but she plays one at the cafe and seems to have some method of monitoring the Rangers' delusions, so...
* MadScientistsBeautifulDaughter: [[spoiler: In Season 1.]]
* TheMentor
* MissionControl
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: [[spoiler: In S2#12, she accidentally triggers a suicide flag that leads the Akibarangers to their deaths.]]
* {{Retcon}}: [[spoiler: She's still Aoi's voice (or at least involved) as she mentioned that she was frustrated after "they wrapped up production" and can't wait for the "surprises" in the new movie. However, due to the AlternateUniverse and Doctor Z not being there, her status as Aoi's voice actress is not yet revealed to the Akibarangers.]]
* SignificantAnagram: [[spoiler: "Shuri Toyozuki" is one for her real name, Hiroyo Tsuzuki.]]
* UnwittingPawn: [[spoiler: For her father's mad quest for revenge.]]

[[folder:Blatantly Evil Guerrilla Marketing Firm B]]
->[[spoiler:Also known as: Delusion Empire]]

The enemy organization from the Delusional World the Akibarangers fight whose goal is to change Akihabara.

!!'''Doctor Z[[spoiler: Real Name: Takehiro Tsuzuki]]''' | [-Live Actor: Creator/KazukiYao-]
[[spoiler:Hiroyo's biological father, scientist, the original designer of Z-cune Aoi, and true leader of the organization.]]

* {{Abusive Parent|s}}: [[spoiler: Part of his revenge plan involves causing his daughter to lose ''her voice and career'' simply because she voices a character he hates. He also does not treat Maruseena or the Chief Clerks, many of which are his own creations, well at all.]]
* ArtificialLimbs
* BiggerBad
* ChildProdigy[=/=]TeenGenius: Was this when he was younger.
* FreudianExcuse: [[spoiler: His turn to villainy was because he disliked {{Moe}} and YuriGenre that he made sure none of that is in his Aoi designs, attempting a DarkerAndEdgier feel. This got him fired and his insistence to keep that mindset despite the demographics that prefer {{Moe}} made him hard to keep a job as an animator and had to return to being a scientist and once he discovers the delusion world, he decided to use that as a vengeance for those are not of his mindset.]]
* HeelFaceTurn: [[spoiler: Finally reconciles with Hiroyo in S1#12.]]
* IHaveNoSon: [[spoiler: Says that Hiroyo stopped being his daughter once she started to voice Aoi.]]
* ItsAllAboutMe: [[spoiler: Dislikes {{Moe}} and YuriGenre, and will ''not'' listen to either the demographics or co-workers.]]
* {{Homage}}: [[spoiler: To Showa-Era villains, particularly [[Series/KamenRider Doctor Shinigami]] and a bit of [[Series/ChoudenshiBioman Doctor Man]].]]
* KnightOfCerebus: [[spoiler:While Maruseena was no lightweight, this guy is a total ''monster'' who tries to ruin his own daughter's career and destroy a community solely for a petty grudge. At least Maruseena was ''designed'' to be a villain, this guy is ''human''.]]
* MadArtist
* MadScientist
* TheManBehindTheMonsters: [[spoiler: Is the sole truly human member of the organization, Maruseena and the Chief Clerks merely being his creations come to life. Naturally he's the true villain.]]
* MotiveDecay: [[spoiler: Forced upon him by Hatte Saburo. He goes from wanting to destroy moe anime to wanting to TakeOverTheWorld.]]
* {{Retcon}}: [[spoiler: Has a different job in Season 2 and was not involved in the whole Akibaranger battle and not antagonizing his daughter.]]

!!'''Malshina''' | [-Live Actress: Honoka-]
Leader of organization in the Delusional World.

* AGodIAm: [[spoiler: Her plan in Season 2 was to get rid of Saburo Hatte and replace him as the 'god' of the Super Sentai universe.]]
* AmnesiaMissedASpot: [[spoiler: She was so traumatized by the events of Season 1 that she couldn't forget it.]]
* AssKicksYou: Aptly named "Malshina's Butt Attack", she attacks by slamming [[https://imgur.com/DzQ81ec her lovely butt]] into Akiba Blue and Yellow's faces. She even [[SayingSoundEffectsOutLoud says "purin"]], the Japanese onomatopoeia for "jiggly" or "bouncy", while doing it.
* BigBad: At FIRST. After Doctor Z and [[TheDragon Delu-Knight]] show up, it becomes apparent that she's just...
** TheDarkChick.
** [[spoiler: {{Retcon}}ed in season 2 where she and Delu-Knight are the big bads.]]
** And in Season 2, she is TheDragon to General Pain.
*** [[spoiler: And it turns out she was never The Dragon to General Pain. She was the real mastermind in her plot to get rid of General Pain and Saburo Hatte.]]
* EvenEvilHasStandards: Thinks that laying-off the rest of the 40+ Chief Clerks is not right.
* EvilPlan: [[spoiler: After breaking into the real world, she realized that her forces could follow her with help of the Akibarangers' delusion power, so she began to help them grow stronger and even set up fights with the sole purpose of weakening the barrier between the real world and the delusion world, going as far as retrieving their transformation devices for the heroes. When they realized they had been {{Unwitting Pawn}}s, the damage was already done.]]
* GigglingVillain
* HeelFaceTurn: Possibly being set up for one as of 10 based on past Sentai examples.
** During S1#11, Once Nobuo [[BreakingTheFourthWall Breaks the Fourth Wall,]] he is attacked by what are assumed to be [[spoiler: American Soldiers.]] She sets herself up for a HeroicSacrifice by [[spoiler: taking the bullets meant for him.]] She's an enemy commander, so they [[ImmuneToBullets don't hurt her nearly as much as it would a normal being.]] Episode 12 has her return, albeit in a bandaged state, showing she wasn't as immune as thought.
** FaceHeelTurn: She goes right back to villainy, however, in Season 2. [[spoiler:...and then she goes back to assisting the Akibarangers in the final episodes.]]
* HelloNurse
* LongRunner: [[spoiler: Her Super Malshina series has run consistently from 1975 to the present with only one break, with Malshina as the star every season! She's even set a record!]]
* TheManBehindTheMan: [[spoiler: In Season 2.]]
* MasterOfDisguise: She can [[ShapeShifting change both her clothes and appearance instantly]], [[VoiceChangeling along with her voice]]. In contrast with Enter, the primary villain of the [[Series/TokumeiSentaiGobusters official Sentai series]] Akibaranger airs alongside, who merely [[PaperThinDisguise changes his clothes, retaining his appearance and even his signature sunglasses.]]
* MsFanservice: Being a female Commander, this kind of thing is in the job description. And being played by a former adult movie actress doesn't help either. [[NoseBleed Nose bleeds]] happen.
* PhysicalGod: [[spoiler: Her goal in Season 2 is to replace Saburo Hatte. As of Episode 11, she's succeeded and created the Super Malshina series.]]
* PragmaticVillainy: Her HeroicSacrifice in the first season (however temporary) wasn't out of mere altruism; Malshina was aware of the fact that her reality was [[spoiler:ready to be cancelled]] and that by helping Nobuo she was [[spoiler:helping extend how much time they had left to gather an audience to keep the series going]].
** [[spoiler: The entirety of Season 2 was set up on this! By replacing Saburo Hatte as the effective god over Super Sentai, Malshina could ensure that her season and thus universe never truly ended, no matter the viewers' ratings.]]
* PuttingOnTheReich: Her design is straight up Nazi-sexploitation-based.
* RuleOfThree: Invoked by [[spoiler:having Delu-Knight trigger three flags of defeat, but that's to show how they no longer work that way.]]
* SpellMyNameWithAnS: There seems to be some confusion about how to spell her name. Malsina, Malshiina, Maruseena, ©Na? Not even this page is sure.
* TeethClenchedTeamwork: In Season 2, she's usually less pleased and more annoyed with General 2's 'Sentai Villain Fanboying' antics, and occasionally her attempts to destroy Otaku culture would clash with General 2's modus operandi of 'having his villainous delusions'
* TookALevelInBadass: [[spoiler: Starting season 2, she is now able to transform and fight the Akibarangers]]
** [[spoiler: She is now more powerful than Saburo Hatte. Oh, boy.]]
* VillainousFriendship: General Pain has a one-sided Type II with her. He goes out of his way to get her into the spirit of things, and is relatively upbeat around her. However, Malshina is completely indifferent to (If not outright uncomfortable around) him, more comfortable to abuse the luxurious freedoms he grants her instead of caring about whether or not he succeeds.
** Episodes 2-10 and 2-11 reverse the Trope. There never was a Friendship at all. Malshina was simply waiting for the chance to [[spoiler: lower Pain's guard so she could steal his secrets for herself. After taking the secrets, she [[TheBadGuyWins conquered every Sentai,]] warping the Akibas' world so that the Sentai series focused on her killing off the teams; effectively taking their place.]]
* VoiceChangeling: She also has the ability to disguise her voice, which she usually uses to [[spoiler:pretend to be a producer from Toei calling the Akibarangers]].
* XanatosGambit: [[spoiler: ''All of season 2'' is a gambit on her part, starting when she entered Saburo Hatte's world in order to manipulate him into allowing a second season. After that, every time the Akibarangers used their Penultimate Powers, it gave her an opening to enter the world of past official sentai, allowing her to defeat the official teams until "reality" was re-written into one where every sentai series is about her killing off the heroes.]]
* YaoiFangirl: She enjoys the fight between the Chief Clerk in S1#3 and Akiba Red perhaps a bit too much.
* YourMindMakesItReal: [[spoiler: As of S1#6, she has broken through into the real world.]]

!!'''Executive Board Director Delu-Knight''' | [-Voice Actor: Creator/HiroakiHirata-]
* BigBad: [[spoiler: According the recap in the first episode of season 2, he and Malsheena are the final villains for the Akibarangers]]
* TheDragon: [[spoiler: In both Season 1 ''and'' 2!]]
* GenreBlind[=/=]TemptingFate: [[spoiler: In his final on-foot battle with the Akibarangers in season 1, he triggers just about every single [[EventFlag death flag]] that you can think of, including using the [[JustBetweenYouAndMe "Before I kill you, let me tell you this"]] line, claiming that he's [[NothingCanStopUsNow more powerful than anyone]], and stating that after he wins he'll be [[{{Retirony}} going home to marry his fiance]]. Justified, as he's very clearly under [[AuthorPowers the influence of Saburo Hatte]], who's trying to kill him off and wrap up the show as quickly as possible]].
** Subverted in season 2, when [[spoiler:Malshina instructs him to do the same thing, only this time, she's taken over the show and switched all the flags around, so that doing these things makes him ''stronger''.]]
* HiddenDepths: Apparently [[spoiler:he's engaged.]]
** [[spoiler: In Season 2, he says he has a wife and kid, but this may be a lie.]]
* MonsterOfTheWeek: [[spoiler: In Season 2, he's basically episode 11's MOTW with some plot importance.]]
* NoisyRobots: His limbs make audible clanking noises whenever he moves.
* {{Retcon}}: [[spoiler: According to S2#1, he was the pervert who approached Yumeria when she dressed as a young boy.]]
* TheRival: Claims to be this for Akiba Red as of S1#11.
* TheStarscream: [[spoiler: In S1#12.]]

!!!'''Chief Clerks'''
* LocationThemeNaming: Just as the Akibarangers are named after Akihabara, the Chief Clerks are named after other districts of Tokyo, such as Shibuya and Kabukicho.
* MonsterOfTheWeek
* OverlyLongName: Nobuo did get the first monster's name right once.

The laborers of the organization.

* GagCensor: In S1#3, the face of the grunt appears over Maruseena's mouth when she starts to swear.
* MeaningfulName: Also known as the Sacrificial Corporate Drones.
* {{Mooks}}
* PuttingOnTheReich: [[spoiler: Temporarily on S1#11, on their transition into the Delusion [[TheEmpire Empire]]. Though it's more UsefulNotes/KatanasOfTheRisingSun, given how their uniforms are closer to Imperial Japan rather than Nazi Germany.]]
* {{Salaryman}}: What they're modeled after.
* [[TakingTheBullet Taking The Finishing Move:]] Pulled this off in S1#1 for the Monster of the Week.

!!'''General 2''' (Tsu/Pain) | [-Live Actor: Creator/RyoHorikawa-]
->[[spoiler:Real name: Tsuguo Ushirozawa]]

* AlasPoorVillain: [[spoiler: His fall in Episode 10 is... not pleasant to watch.]]
* AuthorAvatar: [[spoiler: Of Saburo Hatte, who is himself an Author Avatar. Becoming normal starts killing Saburo Hatte.]]
** [[spoiler: Becomes a more literal example of this in s2ep12, where Saburo Hatte uses him as a proxy to directly speak to the other characters.]]
* AscendedFanboy: Of Sentai Villains.
* BigBad: Of Season 2. [[spoiler: Not.]]
* BewareTheSillyOnes: He may be a big nerdy goofball, but it seems unwise to underestimate the guy when he has access to technology capable of ''rewriting reality''.
* TheDogWasTheMastermind: [[spoiler: Both he and Nobuo are surprised when they learn they are enemies, since they already had a run-in at a karaoke bar.]]
* DepravedDentist: Er...sort of.
* DramaticIrony: We know he's the villain, but the Akibarangers do not, and vice-versa. [[spoiler:And until the end of episode 6, he had no clue he was rewriting reality.]]
* EvilCounterpart: Of Nobuo.
* {{Homage}}: Designed his costume to resemble [[Series/KagakuSentaiDynaman General Kar]].
** [[spoiler:He is even defeated the same way as General Kar, which he points out after being betrayed by Malshina.]]
* TheManBehindTheMonsters: Like Doctor Z before him.
* {{Otaku}}: [[spoiler: Until Malshina takes that quality away from him. Unfortunately, the backlash greatly harms Saburo Hatte.]]
* {{Retcon}}: Most of his monsters cause these, altering how certain things (Like animes and Sentai) are seen from the real world. The only ones immune to these effects are the characters from Season 1.
** ItMakesSenseInContext: Episode #2-10 reveals that Pain [[spoiler: Isn't an actual character, but an avatar created from Hatte Saburo's subconcious. Being a "portion" of Hatte, (for lack of a better term) it can be presumed he had some of his Author power, thus the Retcons.]]
* SailorEarth: Creates his monsters deliberately in the style of past Sentai villain teams.
* TookALevelInBadass: [[spoiler: As of Episode 7, while he is still as much of a loser as Nobuo, he now knows he can rewrite reality, knows the Akibarangers' identities, and can enter the delusion world.]]
* UnwittingPawn: [[spoiler: To Malshina.]]
* VillainousFriendship: One-sided Type II. Early in the season, he kept going out of his way to get Malshina into the spirit of things, expressing sadness when she inevitably ignored him.
** As of episode 2-9, however, this seems to have devolved into a Type IV, as he has no qualms about trading up Dragons once he saw how capable the [[MonsterofTheWeek MoTW]] was against the Akibas; going so far as to [[spoiler: trap Malshina in an acryllic box, so he could [[AllMenArePerverts "admire her aesthetic qualities."]]]] Of course, the new Dragon was defeated, so one can only wonder how she and Pain will interact from here on out.
** Episodes 2-10 and 2-11 reverse the Trope. There never was a Friendship at all. Malshina was simply waiting for the chance to [[spoiler: lower Pain's guard so she could steal his secrets for herself. Stealing the secrets also removed [[DemotedtoExtra Pain's memory of his past deeds, effectively brainwashing him into becoming a minor character.]]]]

The foot soldiers of the empire.

* AmbiguousGender: They're half male features, half female features, and all freaky.
* {{Mooks}}
* NoSenseOfPersonalSpace: They have no problem rubbing all over both their enemies and allies.

!'''[[spoiler: Saburo Hatte]]'''
[[spoiler: A manifestation of the creators of the show and true villain behind all the series's past events. For some reason, he's hospitalized inbetween seasons and was manipulated by Malshina into creating Season 2 so she could get revenge on what he did.]]

* AuthorAvatar
* AuthorPowers: [[spoiler: Naturally, since they run the show, they can alter details at will, including characters' personalities. Becoming aware of the fourth wall seems to allow the characters to reverse changes made to their personalities, though.]]
* BiggerBad: [[spoiler: In Season 1. Surprisingly subverted in Season 2, where Malshina is the villain.]]
* CreatorInJoke: "Saburo Hatte" is actually the collective pen name for the Toei anime and tokusatsu writers.
* ManBehindTheMan: [[spoiler: In Season 1.]]
* PhysicalGod: [[spoiler: In the Sentai multiverse, the Akibaranger universe, and the Delusion World, until Malshina takes over.]]
* RageAgainstTheAuthor
* ThrowTheDogABone: [[spoiler: Gives the Akibarangers a second season.]]
** [[spoiler: Subverted. Malshina was responsible for it as part of her plan to get rid of him.]]
* TheUnseen: [[spoiler: Except for a hand. This is a big hint to his identity as the man in the hospital in Season 2.]]
* UnwittingPawn: [[spoiler: To Malshina in Season 2.]]
** YourMindMakesItReal: [[spoiler: Episodes #2-10 and #2-11 reveal that General Pain was never really a meant-to-be-established character, but instead a byproduct of Saburo's subconcious created as a defense mechanism against Malshina. (Thereby connecting him somewhat to the Akiba-verse, making Pain an extension of Hatte. Yes, it's a MindScrew.) Now that Malshina has all but lobotimized Pain, Hatte is feeling the effects in the "Real" world, and is implied at the end of #2-10 to be on the verge of death. Malshina does not take it well.]]
