This page describes the characters appearing in Yoshiyuki Tomino's Overman King Gainer and the tropes associated to them. Please help out with the blurbs.Also, MAJOR SPOILERS AHEAD! Proceed with caution.
Shaming the Mob: In Volume 5 of the manga, Gainer calls out a group of former Exodists who accused Gain of being the cause of their imprisonment, saying that Gain never forced them to go into Exodus.
Supporting Protagonist: Well, not really... but quite often, it is Gain who ultimately wins the day. Gainer does achieve his own victories, though, so this trope only partially stands for him. Besides, most of the fights are about him and someone else.
Suicide by Cop: When he falls under Kashmir's control later in the series, and ends up endangering the City Units, he tries to convince Gainer to kill him, even by revealing that he was the one who killed his parents. However, it doesn't work, as Gainer opts for Taking A Third Option.
Well-Intentioned Extremist: An heroic example - he gives priority to the Exodus over everything else. If that means sacrificing some people, or even himself, he won't hesitate - though he won't be proud of it.
What the Hell, Hero?: Gets one of these from Gain - who actually punches him for his killing of Gainer's parents.
Disproportionate Retribution: Gain has a one night stand with my sister? I'll pursue him in the frozen lands, try to capture him at the cost of putting innocent lives in danger, and when that fails, I'll awaken the Overdevil and destroy the world.
Hannibal Lecture: Asuham tries one on Gain in the manga, showing him a concentration camp filled with captured Exodists, and telling him that Gain is to blame for their condition, and for instilling in them false hope of a better life through Exodus. Gain, however, shrugs the lecture off.
Impossible Thief: His Jinba's Overskill allows him to "steal" objects at a distance... which includes mechanical parts!
Karma Houdini: Of the "it doesn't matter anymore" variant. Still, you'd think he would get a somewhat harsher punishment for some of his excesses.
Apparently this was why he was dropped as a character - he's too cool in a world without many cool adults and was threatening to overshadow the others. (The director even apologized to Hisao Egawa for this.)
Pet the Dog: During his forced stay in a city unit, he saves an impoverished little girl from being bullied and begins to act as a surrogate father figure to her. He later travels with her to her homeland (if this troper recalls correctly, the country was basically India)
Time Stands Still: His Rushrod's Overskill. Sort of; anything that crosses paths with the attack will stop dead in its tracks.
Expy: It is possible (and I repeat, possible) that Father Llymic, an alien monster from the Dungeons & Dragons 3.5 manual Elder Evils, might be an Expy of the Overdevil, since the two horrors share similar powers and abilities. Of course, it could all be an incredible coincidence...
