     Heroic Tekkamen 

D-Boy/Blade/Slade/Takaya Aiba/Nick Carter/Ness Carter/Tekkaman Blade/Teknoman Slade

Voiced By: Toshiyuki Morikawa (Japanese), Bob Bergen (English)

The main character of the show. Takaya is the 2nd son of the Aiba family and was captured along with them by the Radam and set to become a full Tekkaman until his father saved him and had him launched to Earth. The incomplete biological engineering allowed him to transform into a being hell-bent on the Radam's destruction, the titular Tekkaman Blade. With his memories not actually lost to him, he joined the Space Knights to defeat the Radam (getting the nickname D-Boy) and ultimately succeeds, but not without great sacrifice. Eventually however, the bonds he made with the Space Knights heal his trauma and he begins assisting his girlfriend Aki in training a new generation of good Tekkamen.

Miyuki Aiba/Tekkaman Rapier/Shara Carter

Voiced By: Yuuko Mizutani (Japanese), Wendee Lee (English)

D-Boy's sister and the youngest member of his family, Miyuki was part of the Argos crew. She has a very close relationship to her brother.

  • Break the Cutie: At the age of sixteen, she finds herself, her family and friends taken over by a parasitic alien species, is forced to undergo horrific pain as a result of the tekkaman transformation process, all the while seeing how other crew members are slowly being drained and killed by the Radam plants for reasons of incompatibility. Then she escapes to Earth, hounded by her brother, and manages to see D-Boy one last time, fully knowing that she is dying. And then it gets worse.
  • Collateral Angst: For D-Boy, who was very close to her. His relief at getting a beloved member of his family back from the Radam turns to despair when he finds out that she doesn't have long to live.
  • Deconstruction: What happens when an innocent girl is called a monster by the people that she saved?
  • Flower Motifs: Her favorite flower is the amaryllis.
  • Heroes Prefer Swords: Compare and contrast with Tekkaman Sword.
  • Heroic Sacrifice: Wounded beyond hope by the Radam Tekkamen, she self-destructs in a desperate attempt to annihilate them. It doesn't work.
  • Ill Girl: As An incomplete Tekkaman whose assimilation process was interrupted.
  • Plucky Girl: She clearly knows she's screwed and the story takes a huge physical/mental toll on her, but doesn't stop fighting.
  • Purple Eyes

    Space Knights 

Aki Kisaragi/Star Summers

Voiced By: Megumi Hayashibara (Japanese), Barbara Goodson (English)

Aki is a member of the Space Knights and the co-pilot of the spaceship Blue Earth.

Noal Vereuse/Ringo Richards

Voiced By: Yasunori Matsumoto (Japanese), Kerrigan Mahan (English)

A member of the Space Knights, Noal is a laid-back, flirty young man who abandoned a career in the military in order to fulfill his dream of being a pilot. Initially antagonistic towards D-Boy, he ends up becoming one of his most loyal companions. He's a bit of a card shark and a gambler, and tends to be a bit overconfident and hot-tempered at times.

Miletta 'Milly' Le Rouge/Tina Corman

Chief communications officer for the Space Knights, she is only 16 and can at times act rather childishly - yet at other times may see things more clearly than anybody else.

Heinrich von Freeman/Commander Jameson

Honda/Mac Macelroy



     Earth Defence Force 

Balzac Asimov / Balzac St. Jacques

General Colbert/Galt


Kouzu Aiba/Ulysses Carter

Patriarch of the Aiba family, he rescues his second-eldest son from the Radam, launching him in an escape pod to earth, before dying from the after-effects of a failed transformation.
  • Badass Normal: He is a scholar who managed to become the head of an important space exploration mission, and his marksmanship skills are nothing to scoff at. Add to that the fact that on top of all of this, he managed to raise four children on his own after his wife died and you get a pretty impressive picture.
  • Bold Explorer: Embarks together with his entire family on an ambitious voyage to explore space.
  • Distinguished Gentleman's Pipe: He received it as a birthday present from his three sons, and declared it to be his most valuable possession.
  • Standard '50s Father: What we see of him, anyway.
  • The Patriarch

     Radam Tekkamen 

Shinya Aiba/Cain Carter/Tekkaman Evil/Teknoman Saber

Fritz von Braun/Tekkaman Dagger

Goddard/Tekkaman Axe

  • An Axe to Grind
  • Cool Teacher: An expert in electronics with a passion for martial arts, he trained both twins and acted as a mentor for Shinya. At one point, Shinya mentions that he used to spend more time around him than with his own family.
  • Genius Bruiser: The first Radam Tekkaman who tries to convert Blade to his side through emotional manipulation.
  • Go Out with a Smile
  • Hypocrite: Calls Blade a coward while seemingly forgetting the numerous times he ran away from his fights with him.
  • Stout Strength: Not fat, but stocky and very muscular.
  • Undying Loyalty: Towards Shinya. He is perfectly willing to sacrifice himself in order to kill Blade just so Shinya wouldn't have to risk fighting him again.
  • Villain Respect: As Blade's former martial arts teacher, he comments how impressed he is by his student's progress and strength - after Blade stabbed him using his hand.
  • We Can Rule Together: Attempts to emotionally manipulate Blade into joining the Radam forces.
