Drawn from their respective worlds, Kaiba's ego and greed will cause these characters to collide. Some collisions are happier than others.

     The Blackmailed Mecha Rangers 
These are the heroes of our story, brave men ranging from 13 to their 30s who are perfectly happy to give their lives for the city owned by a man who blackmailed them.

Tropes common for the team:

Simon
The youngest member, the Most Hot-Blooded, and he's also piloting the smallest mecha.

Tropes:

Shinji Ikari
Second youngest member and the Most Reluctant; as well as the most laughably pathetic.

Tropes:

Roger Smith
A Negotiator who also happens to pilot a Black Mecha...what? What's so unusual about that?

Tropes:

  • Amnesiac Hero: Evidently its a chronic problem for Roger. However, it can be a deliberate case since Dorothy still remembers Roger's past "lives", but Roger wants to be surprised.
  • Badass in a Nice Suit: Comes with being the Negotiator.
  • Cultured Badass: Unlike the others, Roger always wears his uniform and even at home still wears only black.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Not much different from canon in this regard.
  • Guile Hero: Uses wit and cunning both in the cockpit and when dealing with adversaries.
  • Identity Amnesia: Dorothy probably knows everything that Roger forgot, but he wants to be surprised.
  • Mighty Glacier: Big O's the toughest and possibly the physically strongest of the Ranger's mecha.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero: He convinced Deathwing to take a humanoid form in order to make their battle more "fair". Deathwing's transformation only made him more dangerous.
    • He was also part of the Grove experiments on Enoch years ago
  • The Stoic: Like in canon, nothing seems to phase the Negotiator. Even constant threats of death are treated casually by Roger.
  • Papa Wolf: Don't threaten or insult Annie, Shinji, or Simon or he'll drop his neutrality.
  • Team Dad: Generally the most responsible, mature and sane member of the team.

King Van Slanzar de Fanel
The King of a minor kingdom on a planet that can see Earth but Earth can't see his world...weird isn't it?

Tropes:

Bit Cloud
Ace pilot or lucky-as-hell junk-lover? Your guess is as good as mine.

Tropes:

Heero Yuy

Tropes:

     Mecha Lord 
The Titular Combination Mecha which guards and protects Angel Groove.

Tropes common for the team:

  • All Your Powers Combined: Possesses expanded and enhanced abilities from each of it's component mecha.
  • Arm Cannon: Compliments of Big O and later Liger Zero Panzer or Sunflower and Gundam Wing
  • BFS
  • BFG
  • Deflector Shields: Uses both Escaflowne's magic and Evangelion's AT Field as a barrier.
  • Expanded membership upgrade: First acquires stronger Spiral capabilities thanks to Gurren Lagann and becomes Mecha Breaker Lord.
    • Soon afterwards, Kaiba's Blue Eyes White Dragon Jet combines with Breaker Lord to form White Dragon Mecha Breaker Lord.
    • Gundam Wing plus Mecha Lord or Mecha Breaker Lord equals Mecha Wing Lord or Mecha Wing Breaker Lord.
  • Humongous Mecha
  • If It Swims, It Flies: Somewhat Averted. Mecha Lord was actually in danger of drowning when facing the Kraken and it took quick thinking from the rangers to survive. Later, it gains flight thanks to the addition of Kaiba's Dragon Jet and Wing Gundam.
  • Lightning Bruiser: Fast and agile thanks to Gurren Lagann, Liger Zero and Escaflowne, but still possesses Big O's sheer raw strength.
  • Madeof Iron: Thanks to Big O.
  • The Power of Friendship
  • Power Fist
  • Team Spirit
  • This Is a Drill: From either Gurren or Gurren Lagann.

     Friends and Family of the Rangers 
They're not complaining for some reason, but these are the solid walls of support for the Rangers. Family, Friends, Not-Lovers and so on. So here they are in order of introduction.

Smith Family
Roger Smith's butler, his wife Dorothy and their daughter Annie. Wait...Something seems very strange about half of that sentence...

Tropes:

The Dai-Gurren Brigade
Simon's gang led by him and Kamina.

Tropes:

Nia

The Blitz Team
Bit's fellow zoid pilots though only Leena is shown to be living with him...

Tropes:

Fanelian Court

Tropes:

Hitomi Kasshu

     Friends and Allies in Angel Groove 
Seto Kaiba
The only one fortunate enough to live in Angel Groove because...he owns the place!

Tropes:

Mokuba Kaiba
The Co-President of Kaiba Corp and his older brother's right-hand man. He's also the one that most people prefer to work under...marginally.

Tropes:

Optimus Prime
A Mechanical Head that floats in an oversized fish jar.

Tropes:

  • Badass Baritone: It's a tone that Kaiba cannot refuse.
  • Big Good
  • Deathis Cheap: Considering how he got here...yeah...
  • Gentle Giant: He takes his circumstances oddly well.
  • My Greatest Failure: The battle between his Autobots and the Deceptions may have caused Adam to awaken in the first place - their war may have been what eventually caused Second Impact.

Hikari Horaki
Transferred from Tokyo-3 to act as Class Representative for the academy in Angel Groove, though she could have picked a better time...

Noriko Takaya

Tropes:

Enoch

Tropes:

  • Bigger Bad: Appears to be the primary antagonist of the whole story
  • It's Crucified to a Giant Rock
  • The Dreaded: Everyone who knows about him including the Rangers and Kaiba are terrified by the mention of his name
  • Dug Too Deep: Much like with it's possible cousins Adam and Lillith, Enoch was evidently dormant under Angel Groove until stirred by Second Impact and later wiped out the original Angel Grove after years of experimentation with it's body
  • Evil Is Not a Toy: Kaiba's father found this out the hard way
  • Gone Horribly Wrong: Available information makes it clear that the experiments on Enoch to access its power is what wiped out the previous Angel Grove.
  • I Shall Taunt You: The essence of his dialogue with the Rangers and Kaiba
  • MacGuffin Super Person: The central driving force of the story's conflict
  • Pretentiously Carved Kabbalist Tree
  • The Reveal: Enoch is sealed under Angel Groove, he's attracting monsters and other anomalies to the Groove to destroy the city to free himself and Neutro-Plutonium is partially created from his blood.
  • Rule of Symbolism: Named after the biblical figure Enoch who was directly taken up into Heaven by God
  • Sealed Evil in a Can: Sealed and Depowered under Angel Groove for the moment
  • This Is a Drill: Accessed Spiral Power prior to being sealed by Kaiba's father
  • Villain Override: Is capable of assuming control over a few monsters due to a yet-to-be-explained connection between their power-ups and his own depleted power
  • Walking Spoiler: Before Chapter 12, you'd think that Angel Groove is just really unlucky...afterwards, it's unclear.

     Guests in Angel Groove 
People who just kind of stumbled into the Groove for a temporary stay.
Colonel Misato Katsuragi

Tropes:

  • Action Girl: As demonstrated by her attack on a decepticon that was attacking Toji.
  • The Alcoholic: Everyone to Pen-Pen, Kaji and even Duo have refused to let her have a single drop.
  • The Atoner: Appears to be on this path
  • Authority Equals Asskicking: A decepticon just came out of nowhere, demolished half of a base that she's in, and wasted Unit 03. What does she do? Jump on it and shoot out it's eye!
  • Butt Monkey: How everyone in Angel Groove has treated her.
  • The Chew Toy
  • Former Guardian: Gets called out on her failures by Roger and is legally deprived of guardianship of Shinji. Kaiba approves.
  • I Did What I Had to Do: But that doesn't mean that she likes it.
  • I Need A Drink: But Penpen won't let her.
  • Mama Bear: Genuinely cares for Shinji and the other children, but is often called out for forcing them to pilot the evas and cooperating with Gendo.
  • Ms. Fanservice: Yeah, you saw this coming.
  • The Needs of the Many: Her defense of Nerv's actions and how it has saved humanity each time that an angel is defeated.
  • Sole Survivor: Thanks Second Impact.
  • The Unfettered
  • The Strategist: Even her critics can't disagree which comes in handy during the Zilla Wars and in Chapter 29-30 during a surprise decepticon attack
  • We ARE Struggling Together: She really hates Gendo.
  • What the Hell, Hero?: Her response to Shinji's refusal to return to Nerv.

Toji

Tropes:

  • Adaptational Badass: He still gets beaten around a lot, but at least he has a chance to fight back somewhat.
  • The Big Guy
  • Child Soldier
  • Spared by the Adaptation
  • Took a Level in Badass: Has been seen standing up to decepticons and even space-godzilla despite being out of his league.
  • Worf Effect: Has spent most of his screen time being beaten by his enemies.
    • Like that time when Blackout crippled his Eva and then hacked its systems to get to Nerv's mainframe.
    • Or when Spacegodzilla utterly dominated him despite Unit 03's AT Field.

Yugi Mutoi

Haruko

Major Sayla Mass

Tropes:

     Rot Walkuren 
People who happen to be the exact opposite of and in no way will oppose the Rangers.
Viral

Tropes:

Dilandau

Tropes:

  • The Alcoholic: He's typically drinking in most of his scenes and spits it out as flames to burn people
  • Axe Crazy: Just like in Canon, only he has no Morality Pet this time around.
  • Evil Albino: And loves every second of it.
  • For the Evulz: Does this need to be explained?
  • Karma Houdini: Originally imprisoned, Dilandau has been conscripted by Lordgenome per the powers of the Tribunal.

Baroness Asuka Sohryu

Tropes:

V

     Seele and friends 
Under new management by Gendo Ikari.
Gendo Ikari

Tropes:

Seele 04: Lord Genome
  • Abusive Father: Just read Parallel Works 3.
    • Though this could be partially justified. In canon, Nia was revealed to be a Anti-Spiral Irregular, and the Anti-Spirals do exist in the MMMR-verse.
  • Badass
    • Badass Boast: When Seele 07 asks him why he doesn't hide his face during Seele meetings his answer is "I'm Lordgenome, who do I have to fear?"
  • Big Bad: At least to Simon and his group, though as a member of Seele, he counts as this to the rest of Angel Groove as well.
  • Character Focus: The member of Seele besides Gendo that gets the most screentime. On top of that, he's often seen with Gendo acting as his equal.
  • Fallen Hero: If the canon is anything to go by, he could qualify for this trope.
  • Four Is Death: He's Seele 04.
  • Kill The Messenger: Very violently murders a servant after reporting Terios' defeat at the hands of the Dai-Gurren Brigade.
  • One-Man Army: Per Parallel Works 1, he wiped out his fellow spiral fleet almost single-handedly after defeating the Anti-Spirals.
  • Orcus on His Throne:
  • Super Speed: Able to move, react and speak normally to Terios in his super-speed mode.
  • The Pirates Who Don't Do Anything: Hasn't actively moved against the heroes, yet...
  • This Is a Drill
  • We Have Reserves: Could care less about the death of his beastmen generals and more about their failures.

Tropes:

     The Ridiculously Overpowered Adversaries 
No has any idea as to why they're attacking Angel Groove and honestly, it matters less than the fact that they are trying to destroy the city.

Tropes:

The guy in charge of sending the Monster of the Week to attack Angel Groove. Why he's doing so is unknown.

  • Curb-Stomp Battle: The first of the anomalies to have this truly dealt to them by the rangers.

Engineered and enhanced from the DNA of Godzilla and one other creature, these seven monsters launch a coordinated assault on the city in Chapter 20.

Tropes:

  • All Your Powers Combined: The four Zillas are shown with the abilities of Godzilla and the combined endurance of Godzilla and the Sharptooth
  • Badass: Being cloned from Godzilla himself has its perks.
  • Breath Weapon: All of the Zillas have access to the atomic breath attacks. Spacegodzilla can additionally increase its breath with its gravity powers.
  • Cyborg: Two of the Zillas are mecha-zillas equipped with durable armor that absorbs the energy of incoming attacks.
  • For the Evulz: The Zilla that Unit 01 confronts seems to take sadistic pleasure in eating and torturing humans.
  • Genius Bruiser: Mainly Spacegodzilla, but the others have shades of this.
    • The Zilla that Van faces uses its digging ability to surprise Escaflowne and add a new dimension to their battle
    • Once Shinji's Zilla realizes that Unit 01 ran out of power, it wastes no time in taking the opportunity to severely wounded and crippling the Eva to where Shinji almost died
  • Lightning Bruiser: All of the Base Zillas apply. Particularly the Zilla which Bit and Heero battle since the latter actually uses the make-shift lake from the Kraken fight against Heero and the Defense Force aces
  • Made of Iron: All apply.
    • The Mechagodzillas could withstand full-powered punches from Big-O and Gurren Lagann without faltering.
    • Spacegodzilla was able to endure the combined attacks of Unit 03, Nirvash, Berserk Fuhrer, Deathscythe, King Kittan and Gaogaigar and still control the fight. Even Yugi's Mind Crush only made it madder.
    • Eventually it took the combined power of Kaiba's dragon-jet combined with two Autobot Primes, Mecha Lord and Mecha King Mecha Wrecka Gar to destroy Spacegodzilla.
  • Mighty Glacier: All of them are extremely hard to permanently injure, in addition to their great strength.
  • Spikes of Villainy: Spacegodzilla's crystal spikes on its body. These can also be used to fire gravity bolts at its foes.
  • Super-Persistent Predator: More applies to the Zillas since Spacegodzilla was willing to leave alone its enemies. But Toji attacked it in the back and made it mad...

The Decepticons
So far known to include Barricade, Blackout, Soundwave, and Scorponok, we still don't really know what their goal is...whatever it is, it won't be pretty.

Tropes:

  • All Your Base Are Belong to Us: Blackout's attack on the military base and the Decepticons infiltration of Angel Groove. Which has culminated into an all out attack while the City's defenses are scattered by the Godzilla Zillas
  • Ax-Crazy: Blackout just runs with it through and through.
  • Badass: Blackout earns his cred when he singlehandedly destroys Nerv US. While blind.
  • Butt Monkey: That would be Barricade's role thus far.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: Barricade has been on the receiving end of three while Blackout dealt out one in his first scene.
    • Most recently, Reedman was beaten by Noriko shortly before Scorponox was defeated and captured by Ed.
    • Starscream easily disables Unit 01 with the Null Ray.
    • Bonecrusher is ripped apart by Aina.
    • Blackjack is hammered by Ultranus.
    • Barrage vs Gundam Alex's wrist cannons.
  • Determinator: Blackout and Scorponox.
  • The Dreaded: Shockwave
  • Eyescream: Blackout loses both his eyes during his fight with Nerve US. It doesn't stop him.
  • Hellish Copter: Blackout.
  • Mind Rape: Lelouch now controls Reedman
  • The Starscream: Really?
  • Well Intentioned Extremists: Everything that they are doing is to both revive Cybertron and locate Megatron.
  • Villainous Valor: Scorponox
