Dr. Kiriko Aoi

Voiced by: Takako Honda (Japanese), Laura Chapman (English)


Shizuru Fujimura

Voiced by: Yumi Kakazu (Japanese), Tiffany Grant (English)


  • Catch Phrase: "Just who the hell do you think I am?" (This show aired years before Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann, by the way.)
  • Celibate Hero: Her feelings for Goh may be the reason she refuses to engage in a serious relationship with anyone else.
  • Cold Sniper: Sometimes, she gives off the cold shoulder, but not always.
  • The Lancer: To Goh and Anna.
  • Male Gaze: The show likes to emphasize Shizuru's enormous butt.
  • The Mentor: To Anna, on a few occasions. Later becomes one to Shinobu.
  • More Dakka: Core Gunner is practically a multipurpose artillery piece on legs.
  • Macross Missile Massacre: She uses several missile attacks to fight against the Mimetic Beasts.
  • Out-of-Clothes Experience: She experiences this in the second season premiere.

Kouji Tetsuya

Voiced by: Nobuyuki Hiyama (Japanese), Chris Ayres (English)


Mira Ackerman

Voiced by: Aya Hisakawa (Japanese), Monica Rial (English)


  • Back from the Dead: More like a coma, actually, but everyone thought she was dead for quite a long time.
  • Dumb Blonde: As a result of her mental regression. She gets better in the second season.
  • Foreign Fanservice: In a Base filled to the brim with Japanese nationals, Mira stands out as the only one of two non-Japanese on Dannar Base.
  • Innocent Fanservice Girl: During her mental regression state, she tends to go about wearing skimpy clothes that help little in preserving her modesty. Even when her memory is restored, she occasionally does something that catches the attention of the males and almost have no clue what just happened.
  • Kiss of Life: How she revives Shizuku.
  • Man Child: Or in her case, "Woman Child". As a result of being trapped butt-naked in the body of a Mimetic Beast doing god-knows-what on her biology, Mira's mentality regressed to that of a newborn child. At least until the second season.

Tatsuya Aoi

Voiced by: Hiroya Ishimaru (Japanese), John Swasey (English)


  • Authority Equals Asskicking: As the Captain of Dannar Base, he can kick ass against the Mimetic Beasts when he has to.
  • Big Damn Heroes: In the final episodes, he uses a bazooka to subdue a Mimetic Beast.
  • Disappeared Dad: He hasn't seen Anna since her birth. Except that he has disguised himself as various people so he can watch over her daughter.
  • Expy: He resembles Kouji Kabuto from Mazinger Z, and both Tatsuya and Kouji are voiced by Hiroya Ishimaru to boot.
  • Hot Blooded Sideburns: He sports these when he reveals himself towards the end of the second season.
  • You Are in Command Now: He assumes command of Dannar Base from Kagemaru after he saves it n the final episodes.

    Dino Base 

Moukaku

Voiced by: Jurota Kosugi (Japanese), George Manley (English)


  • The Berserker: Comes under the effects of the Insania Virus and is killed before he does anymore harm.
  • Boisterous Bruiser: He's boisterous and is a strong man. It doesn't help him against the Insania Virus.
  • Character Death: Knight is forced to kill Moukaku when he is infected by the Insania Virus.
  • Huge Guy, Tiny Girl: He is taller than Shukuyu.
  • Hot-Blooded: Even more so than Goh.
  • Large Ham: Given his Hot-Blooded personality, this is to be expected.
  • The Lost Lenore: He becomes this for Shukuyu. Moukaku proposed to her before getting infected by the Insania Virus.
  • Mercy Kill: Knight is forced to kill Moukaku after going berserk from the Insania Virus.

Shukuyu

Voiced by: Wakana Yamazaki (Japanese), Kelly Manison (English)


    Silicon Base 

Shadow Dunaway

Luna

Voiced by: Tomoko Kawakami (Japanese), Sasha Paysinger (English)


    Vega Base 

Ekaterina

Voiced by: Miho Yamada (Japanese), Marcy Bannor (English)


  • Dominatrix: Subverted, Ekaterina has all the elements of a dominatrix at first glance, but episode 5 of the second season reveals that while she is quite haughty, she is also a nice person at heart.
  • Stripperific: Par of course for the series, but given the general theme of Ekaterina's appearance, she's probably more so than the rest of the female cast.

    Other Characters 

Ken

Voiced by: Toru Okawa (Japanese), John Gremillion (English)


  • The Ace: He proves to be on par with or even superior to Goh during their first battle. To be fair, Ken's skill in fighting solo spooked Goh out of his wits.

  • Blow You Away: Gainer's finishing moves involve generating tornadoes.

Rosa
