Characters debuting in the 4/F/F Final games
Super Robot Wars 4
introduced a mechanic to the series wherein the protagonist was highly customizable
. While the player cannot change every facet of them visually, they can select between eight pre-set "appearances", four per gender, and assign a personality to them that influenced what they said and how they interacted with others in the game. Each appearance also had a "default" character profile attached to it, if the player doesn't want to fiddle with a bunch of options and wanted to jump straight into the game. Irm and Ring are taken from these profiles and expanded into full characters for Super Robot Wars Original Generation
Worth noting is that only
Irm and Ring have been adapted to date. Unlike the Super Robot Wars Alpha
originals, where all eight of them were fleshed out for Original Generation
, the other six profiles in 4
have never been seen outside of this game and its related products, which explains why the other entries are so comparatively barren. This can a bit of a sore spot for old-school fans of the series, as a few of the pilots proved quite popular back in the day.
"You may have the skill... but I'm better looking!"
Irmgard Kazahara is the son of Jonathan Kazahara
, a prolific mecha designer at the Tesla Leicht Institute. He's also a mechanical designer himself, but is known more in Original Generation
as the pilot of the transforming Super Robot
Grungust. His easy-going, ladies man attitude hides his competence as a skilled pilot.
Irm is a slightly different person in Alpha
and Original Generation
compared to his debut appearance, due to a sort-of Mythology Gag
: in these games, he enters the plot as an older, veteran pilot rather than the point-of-view rookie he was during his debut. In 4
, he was the default archetype of the calm, cool Handsome Lech
, and this carries over into his future appearances, except it's informed by at least one very messy breakup and quite a lot more actual experience with the opposite gender. Across all appearances, he is paired with the cool, nihilistic Ring Mao, who in 4
was a bit Tsundere
for him, and in other settings, is his ex-girlfriend. Despite being technically estranged from one another, the way they bicker Like an Old Married Couple
makes it clear they still care for one another, and when they can actually put aside their differences, they make quite a team.
Tropes associated with Irm:
- Bragging Theme Tune: Grungust Zan!! Unfortunately, we're still waiting for it to actually appear in the games, Banpresto.
- Can't Catch Up: The Grungust isn't the monster it was back in Original Generation once Original Generation 2 rolls around, mostly due to it being overshadowed by other super robots like the Dynamic General Guardians and the Choukijin. Fortunately, Irm redesigns the Grungust just in time for the Second Original Generation into the Grungust Kai ("Custom") from Alpha, which subverts this and puts it back onto one of the top units early in the game.
- Captain Ersatz: Particularly in Original Generation, Irm and the Grungust have a few similarities with Banjou Haran and the Daitarn 3, and he ends up fulfilling a few of the narrative roles that Banjou often takes up in his many SRW appearances (but can't do in Original Generation, for obvious reasons). However, the Grungust's Chest Blaster, Eye Beams and Rocket Punch are more comparable to Mazinger Z.
- Chest Blaster: Grungust's "Final Beam" and Grungust Kai's "Ultimate Beam"
- Chivalrous Pervert: He'll hit on many girls, but he's got a lot of standards in "hitting". For instance, he doesn't hit on girls that are crying on either the outside or inside, as proven with this regarding Tytti Noorbuck when she's in a near Heroic BSOD after recovering the Zamzeed in the Second Original Generation.
- Cool Sword: Grungust and Grungust Kai's "Keitou Ragouken" ("Calamity Sword").
- Eye Beams: Grungust's "Eye Solid Laser"
- Hilariously Abusive Childhood: His conversations with Jonathan in Original Generation imply Jonathan wasn't that great of a father.
- Leitmotif: "Time to Come"
- Lovable Sex Maniac: Carries a black book around and dates girls between a certain age, yet this doesn't seem to faze any of the original female cast.
- Nightmare Fetishist: In one save-quit intermission dialogue for the Second Original Generation, Irm expresses interest at and wouldn't mind hitting on Umbra, who, mind you, is always covered in full clothes with glowing yellow eyes and has a voice comparable to Satan.
- Pink Girl, Blue Boy: With Ring
- The Power of Love: Though he may carry the "Love" Spirit Command and can cast it for half the normal cost upon achieving certain requirements, it feels odd he's not actually in a relationship with Ring anymore in Original Generation...
- However, the hidden "love bonus" gameplay mechanic places the two at a much higher tier, moreso than other couples.
- Rocket Punch: Grungust's "Boost Knuckle" and Grungust Kai's "Hyper Boost Knuckle"
- Rule of Cool: See quote
- Series Mascot: The fact he's one of two originals from 4 carried over into another game, and being the more accessible of the two gameplay-wise, strongly suggests Irm's meant to be taken as the "canon" protagonist of 4.
- Shipper on Deck: Joins in with Excellen Browning on some of her schemes.
- Shout-Out: In the Second Original Generation, there's a chance Irm will utter the phrase "Sora wo miro, hoshi wo miro...ttene" ("Look at the sky, look at the star...just kidding") when using the Grungust's Calamity Blade. This is a reference to the opening song lyrics from Ultraman Taro.
- Start My Own: At the end of the Second Original Generation, Irm contemplates making his own team in the same vein as the ATX and SRX Team. For starters, he's recruited Ryoto Hikawa, Rio Mei Long and Ing Egret.
- Talking to Himself: In F/F Final with Mashymere Cello. Since Irm didn't get sent into the future with the rest of Londo Bell in Alpha Gaiden, he never gets the chance to meet Jamil Neate.
- Note they do get a tiny window of time to meet each other towards the very tail end of the game, though they don't get to speak to each other that much outside of battle.
- You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Probably the only person who can make a mullet look badass.
Ring Mao is one of the eight selectable originals and represents the cool, nihilistic archetype. In Alpha
and Original Generation
, she's portrayed as the CEO of Mao Industries, a mecha manufacturing company and developer, but can easily transition back into the seat of the Gundam-like
Huckebein and take names in defense of her company. She has a rocky relationship with Irm: in their 4
incarnation, although close, she hates his constant flirting; for her Alpha
counterpart, it's clear Irm crossed a line at some point in the backstory and she left him, leaving the two distant, though they still work great as a team when needed and, deep down, trust each other. Tropes associated with Ring:
- Authority Equals Asskicking: A rare, non-military example, being CEO of a major mecha manufacturer, although Alpha and Original Generation does hint she was originally a member of the PTX Team, hence, the origins of her piloting skills.
- Berserk Button: When they were dating, she saw Irm having tea with a female employee; let's just say the result for Irm was NOT pretty...
- Cordon Bleugh Chef: In 4, Ring has a habit of experimenting with weird food combinations, like mayonnaise curry.
- Demoted to Extra: Ever since Original Generation 2, Ring has yet to rejoin the playable roster. Justified that she's all tied up with her duties as the CEO of Mao Industries. Made more unlikely for her to reappear in a Huckebein for future events, given the entire destruction of the Huckebein series in the Second Original Generation.
- Flawed Prototype: In Original Generation, the original Huckebein 008R had the Tronium Engine installed, which was created through research of Tronium from the crashed Meteor-3. First testing of it led to the "Vanishing Trooper Incident" that killed all but three peoplenote . The Huckebein 008L, powered by the Black Hole Engine given to Earth researchers by the Zuvorg Alliance as a goodwill offering, was sealed away in response to the disaster. It was let out from storage because Ring needed to use it and so the Inspectors didn't seize it when they invaded Mao Industries. Despite Wendolo revealing the incident was punishment for Earth scientists opting to not use the Black Hole Engine for the Huckebein series, Ring still trusts the 008L.
- Hey, It's That Voice!: Shinji Ikari...AS A COOL WOMAN!
- Leitmotif: "Time to Come"
- Non-Singing Voice: Ring's image song, "Yuuki no Jidai" is sung by a duo called "Saichi & Nao".
- Noodle Incident: For her Alpha/Original Generation incarnations, concerning her break-up and continued estrangement with Irm. Neither one of them ever elaborates on what exactly happened, but whatever "it" was, it was sufficient for Ring to feel conflicted about having any further contact with Irm outside of anything strictly necessary for work (despite it being obvious in a few places that she still has feelings for him), and for Irm to feel as though "it" is his fault while "it" is simultaneously something he can't just apologize for and make better.
- Pink Girl, Blue Boy: Although Alpha/Original Generation Ring is an atypical "pink girl".
- Retired Badass: Original Generation only, but boy, does she come back in spectacular fashion.
- Sphere of Destruction, BFG: Huckebein's "Black Hole Cannon"
- Talking to Himself: With Shinji in F/F Final and Alpha
Lenonjayce "Jayce" Starlord (Voiced by Keiichi Nanba)
, full of justice passion
" male archetype, Jayce apparently likes bonsai
and is quite gentle beneath all that HotBloodedness
. He is also the first character to invent the infamous "Gespenst Kick
" (inspired with Benkei Kuruma
learning the "Daisetsuzan Oroshi"), later used and popularized by Original Generation
via the Gespenst MK II Type-S. He pairs up with Mina Likering in 4
. Tropes associated with Jayce:
- Calling Your Attacks: While Jayce isn't the only offender here, it's quite notable, considering the origin of the Gespenst Kick.
- Hey, It's That Voice!: Hard to believe it, Jayce shares the same voice actor as Katz Kobayashi.
- Luke Nounverber: Although to be precise, it's "Luke Nounnoun" sans the -er.
- Real Men Wear Pink: You think he's a gritty badass thanks to that Gespenst Kick, but he also likes bonsai.
- What Happened to the Mouse?: In the meta-textual sense - back in 4, Jayce was the most notable of the eight originals, easily more popular than Irm, thanks to his famous Fountain of Memes attack that is his Signature Move, but in the ten-plus years of Original Generation, he hasn't been so much as mentioned once.
Hector Madison (Voiced by Ryuzou Ishino)
Patricia is, more-or-less, the Distaff Counterpart
of Lenonjayce in 4
. Compared to the usually calm Jayce, Patricia is a complete hyperactive, enthusiastic girl
, especially in making sure Justice Will Prevail
. Paired with Hector Madison in 4
, Patricia is the one who invents the "Gespenst Punch
", which doesn't get copied word-for-word, but might as well be today's better known technique called "Jet Magnum" in Original Generation
. Tropes associated with Patricia:
Arwynn "Wynn" Dorstein (Voiced by Toshihiko Seki)
The Divine Crusaders (includes members who did not debut in Original Generation)
Bian Zoldark (Voiced by Shozo Iizuka)
The father of Lune Zoldark
, Bian Zoldark is a brilliant scientist who, upon researching alien technology found on Earth and given to his institute to investigate, begins building a secret rebellion called the "Divine Crusaders" (DC). Gathering military and political figures across the world, Bian publicly declares war on The Federation
and his army heads to extreme lengths to crush the government in the "Divine Crusaders War"
, believing Bian's words are a sign to Take Over the World
. In his appearance for Super Robot Wars 2
, Bian ultimately faces off with the gathered heroes representing the Federation and fights them at DC headquarters on Aidoneus Island, proclaiming the ones who emerge victorious shall decide the fate of their world. He is killed in combat, but his legacy has resounding effects for the rest of the "Classic Timeline
In Original Generation
, Bian's role in the story is expanded, where he forms the Extra-Over Technology Institute (EOTI) as a response to researching alien technology for Earth's benefit (mainly due to the arrival of Meteor-3 near Aidoneous Island in the South Pacific). It's through Bian's research the mysterious material known as "Tronium" is discovered in the meteor, with Bian handing over 4 of the 5 useable samples to the Earth Federation Army. At the same time, Bian is slowly forming the DC in secret, recruiting help from many individuals such as Shu Shirakawa
and Lune, his good friend Maier von Branstein and his son Elzam
and Sanger Zonvolt
. Like Super Robot Wars 2
, Bian either faces the crew of the Hagane
or Hiryu Custom
battleship in Original Generation
and dies at DC headquarters on Aidoneus Island. In contrast, his Alpha
counterpart is alive; in fact, Bian's words are taken seriously because of the events from Gunbuster
and Super Dimension Fortress Macross
hovering above the Earth.
Bian creates and pilots the Valsion as his personal machine and creates a second unit he modifies for Lune, based off of the Valsion called "Valsione"; in Original Generation
, the latter features a prototype of the "Direct Motion Link System
" that would be found in another line of Super Robots
, the "Dynamic General Guardians
" (DGGs). Tropes associated with Bian:
- Four-Star Badass: Also Badass Labcoat; Bian forms a worldwide rebellion, build several extremely powerful mecha and nearly brings The Federation to its knees...and he did the first two without being noticed by the government.
- Closet Geek: Implied, and confirmed by Lune, to be an old school Super Robot anime fan, with their designs inspiring his DGG series in Alpha and Original Generation
- Crazy-Prepared: The 4 DGGs are a perfect example of why Bian's planning is so extensive, and we haven't even seen the fourth one yet.
- Even Evil Has Standards: Bian disapproves of any technological system that will cause harm to a pilot. That's why implements like the "ODE", "GEIM" and "LIOH" were never given the green light while he was in charge of the DC in Original Generation
- Final Boss: In Super Robot Wars 2.
- Hey, It's That Voice!: Bian's been around the block several times - Hatchan and Nappa, Ankoku Daishogun, Tetsuguyu, Ryu Jose, Benkei (in Getter Robo Armageddon), and Barragan Luisenbarn.
- Ignored Expert: The reason he opposes the Federation with his Divine Crusaders.
- Averted in Alpha because the government listens, thanks to the fall of the SDF-1 Macross, proving there's heavily armed aliens out there, thus the DC War never occurs; the DC is more of a Fiction 500 Alien-Fighting With Cash independent private mecha R&D organization in that setting.
- Killed Off for Real: Except in Alpha.
- Leitmotif: "Valsion".
- Mad Scientist: Zigzagged both ways; he's actually a very reasonable man (even if he feels driven to extremes by circumstances), but then you consider the DGGs, especially the Valsione. Seriously, how the hell did Bian come up with the Valsione's design?
- My Death Is Just the Beginning: Of the real plot for the rest of the Classic Timeline and Original Generation.
- The Obi-Wan: Variation; despite being the Designated Villain (to which he later subverts), the subsequent analysis of his actions affects the heroes a lot.
- Orcus on His Throne: Played straight, then subverted, and ultimately played straight again in Original Generation. Bian reveals he doesn't feel the need to kick back and let his subordinates do all the hard work. He gladly takes to the field towards the end of the first half of the route for Ryusei Date, despite Adler Koch thinking Bian's insane for doing so. Granted, it's only for one scenario (upon which he returns to headquarters until the heroes arrive) but the impact of Bian actually showing himself impresses a lot of people aboard the Hagane battleship.
- Otaku: A slight subtle version, but comments from Lune in the Classic Timeline reveals Bian's a giant robot geek who built the Valsion based on shows he used to watch. In Original Generation, he makes the password for unlocking secret data in the Valsione a catchphrase from one of those shows.
- Sliding Scale of Villain Threat: Everyone assumes Bian fits the "Global Threat" category, when he really is more of an Anti-Villain.
- Villain with Good Publicity: His public relations campaign wins a lot of supporters for the DC, as well as respect from the The Federation higher-ups, despite being labelled a massive threat by the government. You have to wonder if this side of Bian is a small Shout-Out to Lex Luthor.
- Well-Intentioned Extremist: Despite what many DC members think, global domination is the absolute last resort for Bian.
- Xanatos Gambit: The whole point of the DC War is, if nobody can defeat Bian and the Divine Crusaders, then they are the only ones on Earth who stand a ghost of a chance of fighting the incoming extraterrestrials, and even then, that scenario isn't particularly ideal because the aliens are adept at conquering worlds. Bian becoming Necessarilyevil is to ensure that if someone can defeat him and the DC, then they're much more likely to be able to fight off the invaders.
- Original Generation further justifies the gambit: Bian realizes the government is severely under-equipped for an extraterrestrial invasion. Unless the government truly understands how serious an alien threat is, they'll rise to the challenge and gather the means to defeat them. The Earth Federation Army army has the potential; they just don't know it.
Thomas Platt (Voiced by Hidenari Ugaki)
A member of the Divine Crusaders, Thomas Platt played a minor role in the Divine Crusaders War in Super Robot Wars 2
, but managed to evade capture by Federation forces long enough to get transported to the subterranean world of
". Thomas joins the Republic of Bagonia and its military, and has several encounters with Masaki Andoh
and his companions during The Lord of Elemental
storyline. Thomas also appears in Super Robot Wars EX
, still part of the Bagonian military, as well as a Designated Villain
towards the heroes.
In Original Generation
, Thomas begins like his Classic Timeline counterpart as a commander in the DC. One of his subordinates is a the nervous recruit Ryoto Hikawa
. In their first mission, Thomas uses Ryoto as a decoy to smuggle a bomb (hidden in Ryoto's Lion F) that would destroy the Hagane
. The plan's foiled, and has a great effect on Ryoto's view of the DC, causing him to defect
. Thomas participates in the final defense of Aidoneous Island and continues on up until the final attack on Federation headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland. He realizes the DC's going down the tubes, and decides he's had enough. In Original Generations
, Thomas somehow manages to conceal his involvement with the Divine Crusaders and is serving as a soldier in the Earth Federation Army. Tropes associated with Thomas:
- Spell My Name with an "S": Is it Thomas "Platt" or Thomas "Bright"?
- We Hardly Knew Ye: Variation; in the Original Generation route for Kyosuke Nanbu, Thomas barely appears with no explanation of who he is. He leaves the DC just as soon as you meet him. To find out about him, one must play Ryusei's route.
The Zuvorg Alliance is the primary antagonist of the Classic Timeline, encompassing a huge galactic conglomerate of worlds acting as supervisors to the galaxy, seeing which planet turns out to be a threat to the universe and eliminate them. Amongst them are the "Inspectors" (Wendolo, Mekibos, Vigagi, Sikalog and Aguija) and the "Guests", led by Teniquette Zezenan. Unfortunately, while most of them are sane, extremists like Wendolo and Teniquette turn out to be far worse, irredeemable enemies of mankind.
Tropes regarding the Zuvorg Alliance and multiple characters:
- Ace Custom: Each Inspector and Guest "general" uses one
- Artificial Human: The primary fodder to their main force, they are the pilots to their Mecha-Mooks
- Bald of Evil: Vigagi and Sikalog, although the former claims to have hair, but merely shaves it off.
- Chest Blaster: Each Inspector and Guest Ace Custom carries a "Mega Smasher" attack. Notably, the Mega Smasher for Wendolo's Dikastis' is so powerful it can blast a giant hole from the White Star in Original Generation 2.
- Eleventh Hour Ranger: In the Second Original Generation, while they don't officially join the party, Justine, Zebris and Grofis become Guest Star Party Members at the end of the second Space Route. This is repeated in Dark Prison.
- Four-Star Badass: The Inspectors and Guests
- Heel-Face Turn: Mekibos finds Honor Before Reason after the Inspectors are called out on their hypocrisy. Each of the Guest leaders, aside from Teniquette, also pull this.
- Humanity on Trial: The Inspectors seek to pacify and control the Earthlings before they become too much of a threat to galatic peace. Of course, with the Inspectors, there's a slight subversion - turns out Wendolo's just a psychopathic murderer who wants to use the trope as an excuse to commit genocide. Zezenan takes this to its extreme by declaring an act of genocide.
- Hypocrite: Wendolo gives a long speech about how humans are dangerous and will naturally cause war and death throughout the galaxy and how the Zuvorg Alliance is so superior to them, only to nonchalantly kill his brother a minute later, which he had prepared for just in case of a Heel-Face Turn. The heroes definitely don't buy any of his crap after this.
- Zezenan, too: he shares the same belief like Wendolo and treats humanity as pests of the galaxy, though it's arguably because he wants to see if Earth has enough manpower to join the Zuvorg Alliance. When he declares about committing genocide, which the Zuvorg Council never approved of, his allies pull a Heel-Face Turn.
- Large and in Charge: Wendolo's Dikastis and Zezenan's Baran Schnile easily dwarfs all other Inspector and Guest general units.
- Leitmotif: "Violent Battle" for the Inspectors and "Genocide Machine" for the Guests. Wendolo gets his own specific theme in Original Generations "The Judge and The Judged", while Grofis Lacrein gets the exclusive "Genocide Machine II" in the ''Second Original Generation.
- No Fourth Wall: Vigagi's "What does Episode 30 mean!?" and Mekibos congratulating the player during a supposedly impossible, but winnable, scenario in Original Generation 2. In The Inspectors, when Ratsel Feinschmecker appears, Vigagi pushes away a panel.
- Quirky Miniboss Squad, Wolfpack Boss
- Worthy Opponent: Mekibos and the Guest generals are just doing their jobs to protect galactic peace (at least, that's what they believe; they're simply getting bad intel from their superiors) and find the heroes rather honorable, which causes them to double-check the info. This is in stark contrast to the rest of the Inspectors and Zezenan, who are a bunch of racist jerks and care nothing about being unfair or using dirty tricks.
Wendolo (Voiced by Makoto Takasaka in Complete Box, Yuki Kaida in Original Generations and The Inspectors)
Leader of the Zuvorg Alliance's Inspectors, Wendolo was ordered by the Zuvorg Council to investigate the Earthlings' activities and if need be, subjugate them. After he and the Inspectors successfully gained control of the White Star, setting up their primary base of operations there, Wendolo sends his forces to disable the Earth Federation Army's military. Wendolo always has a sly, yet sinister smile on his face. Regardless of who it is, be it ally or foe, he shows no mercy.
- Genre Savvy: Wendolo knew his brother would pull a Heel-Face Turn, thus rigged the Graterkin to become immobile, giving him the chance to wipe him away with a Mega Smasher.
- Meaningful Name: "Dikastis" loosely means "judge" or "juror" in Greek
- Teen Genius: Although his exact age is unknown, Wendolo is the leader of the Inspectors and has his older brother Mekibos serving under him.
One of the Inspectors sent to Earth, the arrogant Vigagi views Earthlings as nothing but "barbarians", insisting their actions are a threat to galactic peace, and their future expansion into the cosmos a potential danger to the Zuvorg Alliance. In Original Generation 2
, Vigagi quickly seizes control of the Tesla Leicht Institute, but is unable to prevent Sanger and Ratsel from acquiring their new units hidden beneath the installation and is forced to retreat. Vigagi is tasked to defend the Inspector-occupied Moon Cradle, but is killed in combat by the Hiryu Custom
and its crew.
- Ace Custom: Galgau and Mega Galgau, the latter exclusively in The Inspectors, since Sanger destroyed the former when he retreived the Dygenguard.
- The Dragon: Claims to be the direct superior of Mekibos, Sikalog and Aguija. It might be true, but it comes across as hot gas more than anything else; Mekibos is obviously the brains of the 4.
Another of the five Inspectors sent to Earth, the Cool-headed, taciturn and reasonable mekibos hastily destroyed Earth Federation forces at the White Star and helped established their command base in Original Generation 2
. He also led the attack on the Moon Cradle and Mao Industries, with hopes to gain the Huckebein MK III for Inspector use.
- Ace Custom: Graterkin, Graterkin II
- Anti-Villain: His continuous battles against the Earthlings slowly convinces him they are not as primitive, nor dishonorable, as they were seen. Realizing there was never a need to "inspect" humanity, Mekibos returns to Wendolo and attempts to persuade his brother to stand down; unfortunately, Wendolo refuses to put aside differences. Before he can escape, Mekibos had the teleportation system rigged in the Dikastis, yet Wendolo himself had the Graterkin rendered immovable and finished him off.
- Back from the Dead: Found by the Zuvorg Alliance and turned into a cyborg, even repairing the Graterkin. Mekibos returns to Earth in Super Robot Wars 4 and the Second Original Generation to warn humanity about Zezenan's plans to destroy them without the Zuvorg Council's approval. Exclusively in the latter game, he becomes a playable character.
- Code Name: Goes by "Gray", the pipeline between the Earth Federation government (and by extension, the Gaia Sabers) and the Zuvorg Alliance.
- Good Scars, Evil Scars: On the right side of his face
- Merlin and Nimue: In Original Generation with Yong Gebana, whom he orders to spy on Zezenan for the higher-ups in the Zuvorg Alliance. Mekibos doesn't like to be called master; accordingly, Yong's household is not socially high in the Zuvorg hierarchy, which explains why she addresses Mekibos so formally. Whenever he insists they talk casually, Yong is completely bewildered and rejects the notion.
- No One Could Survive That: Outright called out by Tasuku Shinguji that he shouldn't have survived all the things that happened to him (shot down by Wendolo, White Star gets assimilated by the Stern Regisseur, and blown up inside the facility). His only response is that "he got lucky".
- Not So Different: with Irm, aknowledged by both of them in universe.
- Shock and Awe: Graterkin's "Thunder Crash" and Graterkin II's "Neo Thunder Crash"
- Shoulder Cannon: Graterkin II's "Mass Driver Cannon"
- Taking the Bullet: For Grofis when Irm fires a Rocket Punch at the former; he survives with no problems.
The only non-speaking Inspector, Sikalog is the lover of Aguija and is usually seen with her. Along with Mekibos, Sikalog assists in capturing the White Star in Original Generation 2
, making his final stand inside the installation.
- Epic Flail: Sikalog's Drukin
- Flat Character: It doesn't help that he's a mute in all incarnations , which doesn't provide him with a lot of characterization.
- Tranquil Fury: The only explanation for the buffs he acquires when you defeat Aguija before him in the White Star.
- The Voiceless: Does not speak a single word, though Aguija states he does speak, albeit via a thought device embedded in his brain. Problem is, Aguija seems to have the only receiver of the device.
Aguija (Voiced by Shinobu Adachi in Complete Box, Shiori Oota in Original Generations, Yuu Asakawa in The Inspectors)The sole female Inspector
, the hot-headed and loud Aguija despises anyone calling her "old", despite being in her twenties. With her "darling" Sikalog in Original Generation 2
, she and Inspector forces occupy the White Star. Aguija later gives chase to the members of Project Terrestrial Dream
, after they flee the Tesla Leicht Institute, but is pushed back by the Cybuster
. Aguija is killed in the defense of the White Star, as Federation forces move to drive the Inspectors away from Earth.
Teniquette Zezenan (Voiced by Issei Masamunenote )
A member of the Zuvorg Council and leader of the "Guests" (a term code-named by the Earth Federation), a special force sent to inspect and control planets. Unlike most Zuvorg members, Zezenan's rather prejudiced against the Earthlings, viewing them as nothing more than a collection of apes. While supposedly kind to his subordinates, he mainly sees his soldiers as disposable tools
. Tropes regarding Zezenan are:
- Ace Custom: Baran Schnile
- Big Bad: Of 4/F/F Final
- Big Bad Wannabe: Second Original Generation, as Keparoc gave him the firepower to take on the Earth in the first place.
- The Conspiracy: In Original Generation, Zezenan was to underhandedly provide raw, Zuvorg technology for the Earth, but at the same time, spark conflict and war within the Federation, with the purposes the technology he gave would be put into use primarily as military weapons. Doing so would give the Zuvorg Alliance the incentive to send him and the Guests to subdue the Earthlings; however, Zezenan notes the humans' ability to craft weapons surpassing that of the Zuvorg, providing him greater weaponry that anyone else in the Alliance. He also wanted samples of Balmarian technology, which the Zuvorg had not acquired themselves.
- Early-Bird Cameo: Zezenan first appeared in Original Generation disguised as an Aerogater to spy on the deal between the Federation and the extraterrestrials, hoping to strike something convenient with the Earth government. Unfortunately, Shu and his Granzon unceremoniously interrupted the proceedings.
- Fantastic Racism: Against the Earthlings, yet the irony is humanity, the Zuvorg, and Balmarians all share a likely common ancestor.
- Killed Off for Real: In 4/F/F Final, he was killed in Mars; in the Second Original Generation, he dies at the Moon Cradle.
- Multi-Armed and Dangerous: Baran Schnile
- Oh, Crap: In the Second Original Generation, when Zezenan and the Guests arrived on Earth for their invasion, he did not expect the Federation and its military to be fully prepared, as the Gaia Sabers anticipated their drop points around the globe, and hastily fended off their preemptive strikes (Mekibos, who is the pipeline between the Earth and the Zuvorg Alliance, has been supplying the Gaia Sabers with information). Another moment is invoked when Shu reveals he managed to understand and use the naked singularity and black hole theory, leading Zezenan into a Villainous Breakdown.
- Shoulder Cannon: Baran Schnile's "Giga Driver Cannons"; may double as a form of Kill Sat, given the context of the attack in the Second Original Generation.
- Spell My Name with an "S": Is it "Zezenan" or "Zezernan"?
- Sphere of Destruction: Baran Schnile's "Big Bang Wave"
Justine Chafrois (Voiced by Yuko Mizutani)
- Ace Custom: Beudrifar
- Eyepatch of Power: Always wears one on her right eye whenever in combat; even the Beudrifar has a special camera that matches hers. Her actual eye is perfectly fine, however - Justine simply uses it as a visual aid when aiming.
- In-Series Nickname: "Seti"
- Subordinate Excuse: Justine used to be engaged to Grofis, but he called it off after he became a mercenary. She followed him and still has feelings for him.
- Rings of Death: Beudrifar's "Tri Driver" and "Illusion Saucer"
- Talking to Himself: Averted in the Second Original Generation; though she the same voice actor as Excellen, she is never available in the routes where Justine makes an appearance.
- Vocal Evolution: Her voice acting has noticeably gone deeper and less playful than when she sounded in F/F Final
Zebris Forschwa (Voiced by Ryusuke Oobayashi in F/F Finalnote )
Grofis Lacrein (Voiced by Kazuo Hayashi in F/F Finalnote )
