Dr. Hell's Army
Voiced by: Kazuhiko Kishino
- Amazing Technicolor Population: And no, it is never explained why he turns blue between the expedition and the present.
- Bad Boss: For a super robot big bad this is pretty much averted. When a subordinate admits to failing or making a mistake he seems to be pretty patient for a while. For a super robot villain. Which this troper would like to point out is completely unlike any other incarnation of Dr. Hell. What, he manages to get through an entire series without berating Ashura? How the hell did that happen?
- Big Bad
- Names to Run Away From Really Fast
- Obviously Evil: To the point that Tsubasa picked up on his plans for world domination early on in the Bardos Expedition.
- Statingthe Simple Solution: In the Saint-ism LP of Super Robot Wars Z2: Saisei-Hen Scenario 47Dr. Hell: …You can come out now.
Gestalt: Your obsession with Photon Power is…amusing.
Dr. Hell: This King of Hell isn’t enough to fight the Ba’al with…only with Photon Power can we survive!
Sayuri: Do you think those three clowns will even succeed?
Dr. Hell: They will live up to my expectations! I have high hopes for Baron Ashura.
Gestalt: And why the elaborate call for a showdown? If you wanted the Photon Power so badly, you could’ve taken the Photon Labs while ZEXIS were dealing with Insalaum!
Dr. Hell: You fools could never hope to understand my plans!
Sayuri: Perhaps. In any case good luck (not!) for the battle.
Gestalt: You might need it more than you think! Mwahaha!
- Well-Intentioned Extremist: Subverted, His idea of saving the world from the Mycenae Empire is to conquer it first and rule it with an iron fist.
- However, Dr. Hell's acquisition of the Knowledge in Saisei-Hen allowed him to discover the location of the sunken Bardos Island begin plumbing its depths for the secrets of the Mycenae Empire. His goal is ultimately to conquer the world and unite it under his rule, in order to utilize all of mankind's means together to fight the enemy.
- Villain Team-Up: Works with the Gishin Empire in Super Robot Wars Z2.

- The Dragon
- Dragon with an Agenda: After The Reveal that Dr. Hell dissolved the other halves of Tristan and Isoulde. After Dr. Hell is dead in Saisei-Hen, Ashura meets Gaiou again. S/he calls him by his former name ("Dimensional General") and says that s/he is now Ashura and not Triston/Isolde. S/he then goes off to prepare for the coming fight with Baal, which s/he thinks Gaiou will be taking part of but Gaiou has other ideas.
- Driven to Suicide: With a twist.
- I Cannot Self-Terminate: Dr Hell took some precautions to ensure that Ashura would't kill itself. Specifically to prevent it from freeing the Mycenae Empire.
- Thanatos Gambit: In the final episode, it kills itself to free the Mycenae Empire.
- Woobie, Destroyer of Worlds: Between being constantly tortured for it's failures, having to watch it's mechanical beasts (actually Mycenae Soldiers) die, watching it's whole civilization being destroyed, finding out that it was betrayed by the man it pledged loyalty to and seeing that it's current freakish appearance was due to the doctor having a weird diabolical moment, and being verbally abused by both sides, you'd feel sorry for it too after a while. Still doesn't excuse it being an evil mass-murdering henchmen and possibly instigating the Mycenae Empire Invasion at the end though (and it's past lives are nothing to sing about either, considering which side they were on).

- Action Bomb: His doppelgangers can self destruct.
- Dirty Old Man: There's a very funny scene in Scenario 47 of Saisei-Hen. If you attack Count Brocken with a woman, he'll make a comment about opening their (the mecha's) cockpits to see the beauties inside, and suddenly, a lot of ZEXIS girls will start calling him names, like Womanizer, Pervert, Weirdo. Kallen even wanted to treat Brocken's head like a soccer ball. Brocken was surprised at these reactions to his statement.Brocken: Geh-heh-heh, that one's piloted by a girl, huh?
Brocken: Punishing you is gonna be SO MUCH FUN. First I'll peel off the cockpit armor, and then...
Lunamaria: Enemy of womankind!
Marguerite: Lewd men such as you deserve little mercy!
Aoi: You're the one who's gonna be punished!
Sylvia: Prepare yourself, Count Pervert!
Kallen: I'm gonna play soccer with your head!
Sara: No, no, I'm going to turn it upside down and use it as a flowerpot!
