Innovades as a whole
Initially appearing as a mysterious and seemingly minor character, he had maybe seven lines and a smirk in season one while he was employed by Alejandro Corner to help him take over the world and whatnot. Then during Episode 25, he phoned Alejandro to let him know something important. Spoiler
In season two, Ribbons's role is... considerably expanded. In fact, he's now the series' Big Bad and sees himself as a kindly angel who is leading most of humanity to the stars. The rest of them get to die
. He's also quite the master of awkward conversation. Just see the episode where Tieria dresses as a woman
for a prime example.Apparently headshotted to death by Regene Regetta, but he appears in the next episode because Regene fell to his Cloning Gambit. Finally bit the dust in the Grand Finale thanks to Setsuna

- Abusive Parent: To the Trinity Siblings. First, he screwed his "children" to Ali Al-Saachez after using them. In Episode 21 of season 2, He baits Nena to Louise in order for the latter to exact her revenge.
- A God Am I and Dark Messiah
- Armor-Piercing Slap: He's gotten fond of this in the second season; Liu-Mei and Regene can attest to the armour-piercing factor. Spoiler
- Attack Drones: The Reborns Cannon/Gundam has GN Fangs.
- Audience Participation: A lot of people like to yell "FUCKING RIBBONS" whenever he appears post-Reveal. AND WITH FUCKING GOOD REASON, TOO.
- Bastard Understudy
- Big Bad
- Boom, Headshot: Subverted if he reuploaded his conscience to another body, or Averted, if the one shot by Regene is indeed a clone.
- Broken Pedestal: Maybe to Setsuna.
- The Chessmaster
- Chronic Backstabbing Disorder
- Cloning Gambit: He manages to clone a massive amount of Innovators (Bring and Divine). Beforehand, it was played straight as a Batman Gambit against Regene.
- Death by Irony: He was killed by the very boy he saved, inside the very Mobile Suit he used to save him. And said boy is also the one who inspired him to be plans and ruined it just when he was on the cusp of completion.
- Death Is Cheap: Was killed at least twice. As apparently all other Innovators, he has a valid backup copy of his memory inside Veda. The reanimation was just a matter of downloading a conscience into a new clone body.
- Diabolical Mastermind
- Enigmatic Minion: To Alejandro
- Evil Gloating
- Evil Overlord
- Fallen Hero:
He was once known as Amuro Ray, nemesis of the Red Comet Char. Considering he was a Gundam Meister, he may well be one.
- Fan Nickname: "Bad Amuro", for his voice actor. "FUCKING RIBBONS" after his BIG revelation.
- Faux Affably Evil
- Glorious Leader: In Season 2
- Ho Yay: With Alejandro. Confirmed in the Special Edition. Spoiler
- Kick the Son of a Bitch / Armor-Piercing Slap: "Know your place, you greedy little girl!"
- Man Behind the Man: To Alejandro, too. Sometimes literally.
- Mind Control
- My Hero Zero: Pilots the 0 Gundam, The Hero's childhood hero. ( Twice.)
- Mythology Gag / Actor Allusion / Shout-Out: Aside from the fact that he was voiced by Furuya Touru, he also piloted 0 Gundam... which resembles RX-78 with a GN Drive. He even declares 'I was the first to pilot a Gundam!' Yeah, WE KNOW THAT, Furuya! Get over it.
- His final mobile suit is a giant mobile suit, painted in red, with two huge cannon on its shoulder. In his interview he jokingly refer to Ribbons Cannon, a reference to Guncannon... though it looks more like Ideon. In any case it seems like a huge shout out to Tomino himself.
- Wrong! It turns out it's a Gundam with Fin Fangs. You know, like the one piloted by Amuro in CharsCounterattack novel, and the fan-prefered version of Nu Gundam.
- The "original" version is suppose to have a tank mode, a MS mode, and a cannon mode.
- Not Quite Dead: Since his mind is backed up in Veda, even at the end of the series he isn't truly gone. Tieria got Genre Savvy about this and buried Ribbons' backup data behind as much encryption and data locks as he could, ensuring it would never again surface in Veda. It's also hinted that the data is corrupted anyway, possibly as a side effect of all that encryption.
- Obfuscating Stupidity: Spends this during the entire first season. It's called pulling off a Not-So-Small Role with style.
- Opposite-Sex Clone: Has one in Hiling Care... sort of.
- Playing Against Type: Voiced by the ever-heroic Toru Furuya, the man behind none other than Amuro Ray himself. Now, think of that for a moment...
- Pride: shown to displayed a superiority complex he always looked down on humanity he also also described himself superior to other Innovades his confidence of himself is at the point of arrogance which made him more of a second coming of Lucifer
- Purple Eyes
- "The Reason You Suck" Speech: He usually say these to people before killing them, or having them killed. In order, the people he gave this speech to are Alejandro Corner, Nena Trinity, Regene Regetta and Tieria Erde.
- Subverted in Tieria's case as he not only hijacks Veda back, but delivers his own reason you suck speech right back at Ribbons whilst he's battling Setsuna.
- Shadow Dictator
- Slouch of Villainy
- Spell My Name with an S: After romanizing his name as "Livonze" or other variants for several episodes, many fans were quite surprised to learn that the official spelling really was Ribbons!
- The Starscream
- Transforming Mecha: His second to last MS, the Reborns Gundam/Cannon.
- Treacherous Advisor: To Alejandro. Yet again.
- The Rival: After Setsuna gets his attention. Ironic since they only interact twice and don't even meet until halfway through season two
- Villain Decay: Ribbons is a Magnificent Bastard in season 1, and is a Smug Snake in season 2, with one hell of an idiotic plan involving Kamikaze robots.
- Villainous Breakdown: Setsuna causes him to experience twice; first by defeating Revive and showing that he was stronger than Ribbons. Second when he turns Ribbons almost certain victory around and shatters his link to Veda ruining decades of planning in two minutes.
- Villain Team-Up: With Grace O' Connor in Super Robot Wars Z2
- Visionary Villain
- Walking Spoiler
- Where It All Began: His final mobile suit is O Gundam, the very first Gundam in the show and the first mobile suit Ribbons ever piloted. It's also a take back to the original gundam, since the RX-78-2 and O look exactly alike and Ribbons IS Amuro.
- Would Hit a Girl: He gives Wang Liu Mei the slap that she deserves and knocks out Sheryl Nome and Ranka Lee in the epilogue of Scenario 44 of Super Robot Wars Z2 as per his agreement with Grace O' Connor.
- You Gotta Have Greenish Hair
A person who looks exactly like Tieria Erde, Regene made his first appearance in the season 1 finale accompanying Louise in an elevator. In season 2, he is seen working with Ribbons and the other Innovators. Although he works closely with Ribbons, the two do not always see eye to eye. As a result, Regene often acts of his own will to complete the plan Aeolia intended in his own way, from offering Tieria to join the Innovators to leaking Veda's location to Wang Liu Mei. However, Fucking Ribbons was a step ahead of Regene and had Ali Al-Saachez kill him while he attempted to kill Ribbons. However, Regene's consciousness transferred into Veda, helping Tieria do the same and both cancel Ribbons' link with Veda

Revive is killed by Lyle Dylandy (Anew's boyfriend) during the climatic battle at the end of the second series when the Cherudim Gundam targets the Gadessa's cockpit
